Leo season is almost here. The Sun heads into the lion sign on July 22 and will remain there until August 22.
While the Sun shifting into this fire sign will affect everyone differently based on their zodiac sign and natal chart, the general energy of Leo is theatrical and self-confident. Think of basking in the limelight.
As Cancer season comes to a close and Leo season kicks off, here’s what you need to know about how the shift will affect you.
Peak Hot Girl Summer Energy
Leos are known for loving the spotlight — so this is the peak time to tap into your hot girl summer energy. If you’re feeling a little vain, embrace it. Don’t be shy, post a thirst trap — and embrace your inner ho bag.
If you find yourself wanting a little more attention, recognition, or you feel a bit more like taking charge, feed into it. Don’t shy away from summer flings, inappropriate thoughts, and hookups — this is the prime time for that.
The sign is also known for being creative, friendly, and trusting gut instincts. If you feel inclined to start a new hobby or block your ex, go for it. Trust the lion energy in the stars.
Leo with a Full Moon in Aquarius
On July 23, there’s a full moon in Aquarius. Couple this with the self-loving, fiery, and confident energy of Leo season, and this is the time to shine.
Aquarius is known for inspiring free-spiritedness and owning individuality. Take this time to say “fuck it” and pop it like it’s hot.
At the same time, Aquaris is known for doing things for the benefit of the greater good — so do something that will benefit the world around you.
Mercury in Leo
On July 27, Mercury — which rules communication — also enters Leo. This may empower you to speak louder, as both the Sun and Mercury will be in Leo.
If you’ve been wanting a raise, this is the time to ask for it.
Mars in Virgo
On July 29, Mars — which rules our desires — enters Virgo.
This will help balance some of the spontaneous energy of the fire sign and keep you level-headed. While we love a bit of impulsiveness, some decisions are best thought out.
Tap into Confidence and Self-Love
We hope you’re able to tap into the spotlight-loving, fiery love of Leo.
Take the month to find your voice, own your energy, and treat yourself. Snatch yourself a Leo candle — which smells like orange blossom, lavender, and rose — pour yourself some wine, and text your crush.
With the self-loving, confident energy of Leo, anything can happen.
