KnowLeo February ’23 Scope

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.

About Leo

Element: Fire

Mode: Fixed

Ruler: The Sun

Where Youll 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 dont try to be. Theres something about Leo that screams “Look at me!, and makes everyone stop and stare in awe and fascination. Leos 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 thats clear about Leo, its that theyre 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 its a front, and this often helps them get exactly where they need to be at rocket speed. Dont get it twisted though Leo knows that it takes hard work and dedication to get to the top of the professional ladder, and theyre willing to put in the work. Its just that their patience will run thin if theyre dealing with people who arent as driven as they are. Leos team must really be supportive of their endeavors, or else theyll search for something new.

As friends, Leos are often the life of the party. Theyre the ones you call when youre 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 theyre 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, arent 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 doesnt have to play hard to get everyone knows they are hard to get, and thats 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 theyre not enough for Leo. Leos standards are royally high, and theyre 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.
