LeoJuly 22 - August 21
Welcome to February, skymates! This is the last full month where Saturn, the Planet of Challenge and Responsibility, will be in the sign of Aquarius. On March 7, Saturn enters Pisces, where it’ll remain until 2025. This month is astrologically and spiritually significant. For you, Leo, Saturn’s final stretch in Aquarius is teaching you how to trust that your relationships are evolving exactly how they’re meant to, even if you can’t yet see what it means for you in the long-term. You’ve been working on this lesson since March 2020, and now you’re starting to master it through being present, aware, curious, and expansive in your relationships, not only romantic, but also friendship-wise. This feels deeply refreshing for all parties involved. Spend the start of the month reflecting about what it feels like to be loved the way you desire, and vice versa.

Key Themes: A clearer you, self-honesty, sparks ignited, transformation, depth and healing
Leo, you have a big month ahead of you – in the best possible way. February will be one of those months where you discover and ground in new habits, perspectives and standards for the way you want to live your life moving forward.
Evidence of that, is the month starting with a Full Moon in your sign, on Feb 5th. This auspicious portal will be one of celebrating yourself, how far you’ve come, and the path ahead of you. It’ll be the perfect time to tap into that wellspring of self-love, confidence and power. You have the force of the universe reminding you: you’re magnificent – and the desires you carry, can be met.
Self-reflection through practices like journaling will be particularly potent around now. Being truly honest with yourself will be the best way to stay free and aware of shadow-Leo traits such as tying a (self-protective) bow of pretense around everything. That is: artificially pretending. that life feels perfect, that you know everything, and have no sore spots. Because that’s almost certainly untrue.
Life may not feel great in all its aspects, you might feel like you have no clue what you’re doing, and very wounded in some areas or relationships (including the one with yourself). You might even feel quite scared. The Leo magic is in accepting that, and knowing it’s okay. None of the above has anything to do with your self-worth, which is both unchanging and infinite. From here, you’ll be able to (with clarity) access your ability and creative potential to change anything in your life that doesn’t align with your desires, one step at a time.
On Feb 7th, this empowering energy continues with Asteroid Vesta entering Aries. The asteroids tend to be a little less known in popular astrology, but this isn’t an accurate reflection of their importance. Vesta’s energy is all about reigniting that inner flame that illuminates our path forward. It tends to make taking action towards our goals natural, and effortless. Here, you might suddenly notice your ability to follow through on your goals is accelerated. Time will fly, and you’ll enter flow state more easily than ever. That being said, if you feel out of alignment… it may just feel worse than ever. Apathy and boredom can be indicators that you need to shift course. Find what lights you up, lovely Leo.
On Feb 16th , we’ll collectively experience a natural deepening of life, with asteroid Pallas Athena entering the sign of Cancer. Pallas’ energy is all about our creative, intuitive intelligence, and feminine energy (not in the gendered sense). It tends to reflect where our inner Knowing is (and has been) sacrificed at the expense of a logic and ‘progress’ driven world.
Because this transit activates your sector of spiritual connection, you may feel this deeply. Now is the time to tap into your intuition, prayer or whatever higher connection resonates with you. Ask any questions that sit in your heart, and in knowing that you’ll receive the answers, they will come. Speaking of spiritual connection, the Pisces New Moon on Feb 20th collectively blurs lines between this dimension and the others. Activating your sector of transformation, this will be a deep time for you. It’s likely you’ll feel inclined to spend some time alone. If so, honor this, and enjoy.
Ruler: The Sun
Where You’ll Find Them: At an audition, taking a selfie, or building an empire
What They Avoid: Waiting in line, dealing with paperwork, following orders
Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, is all about spreading love, light, and glamour in the world. Ruled by the Sun, Leos are the center of attention, even if they don’t try to be. There’s something about Leo that screams “Look at me!”, and makes everyone stop and stare in awe and fascination. Leo’s symbol is the lion, and they have that natural royal aura about them that makes them natural leaders, inspiring us all to be our brightest, strongest selves. If there’s one thing that’s clear about Leo, it’s that they’re full of passion, power and ambition. They dim their light for absolutely no one. It may take them a while to get to this level of self-confidence, though.
Leo thrives in a career where they have the freedom to do as they please. Leos make great presidents, CEOs, entrepreneurs, celebrities, artists, stylists, and creative directors. They are also quite adept politicians, skilled at the art of persuasion. Leos often appear to be super confident, even if it’s a front, and this often helps them get exactly where they need to be at rocket speed. Don’t get it twisted though — Leo knows that it takes hard work and dedication to get to the top of the professional ladder, and they’re willing to put in the work. It’s just that their patience will run thin if they’re dealing with people who aren’t as driven as they are. Leo’s team must really be supportive of their endeavors, or else they’ll search for something new.
As friends, Leos are often the life of the party. They’re the ones you call when you’re feeling down and need a night on the town to lift your spirits. Leo does have a huge ego and can be quite prideful at times though, and it can be difficult for Leo to admit when they’re wrong. But ultimately, despite their sometimes self-centered nature, Leos have big hearts and are extremely generous to those they love — sometimes to a fault. Leos must guard against frenemies or people who have a hidden agenda. Luckily, since Leo has such a positive outlook on life, they tend to attract more genuine supporters than secret haters. However, if they do attract negativity, Leo must be sure that their own shadow side, such as their legendary competitiveness and jealousy, aren’t wrecking havoc in their lives. The key is for them to admit when their shadow is creeping up.
When it comes to love, Leo goes all out when pursuing someone who interests them. They love the chase, but they also love to be chased. Leo doesn’t have to play hard to get — everyone knows they are hard to get, and that’s because everyone wants them. Leo should avoid getting too cocky or confident though, because sometimes that can also cause problems in relationships if their significant other feels like they’re not enough for Leo. Leo’s standards are royally high, and they’re constantly seeking to be in a power couple dynamic with someone who keeps them on their toes. Deeply sexual and passionate, loving a Leo is the ultimate whirlwind romance. Wild and spontaneous, Leo likes to call the shots both in and out of the bedroom. They’re the type of ride you never want to get off of.
