Daily Horoscope: Leo, Let Your Guard Down

You can be so forthright today that you might shock others. Ironically, your intentions aren't likely any different than usual, but there's no reason to hide anything now. Your old defense mechanisms have been worn down and you currently don't have the strength to build up new ones. Just remember that everyone doesn't need to know every miniscule detail. Paint your picture in broad strokes for the best effect.
