LeoJuly 22 - August 21
The Moon is in Scorpio this weekend, allowing us to take time to absorb the enlightening vibes of the recent Libra New Moon. Remember that being conscious with oneself and nourishing one’s soul is an intention in itself. Leo, you’re thinking of your family this weekend, and wondering if they know how much you care. They probably do, and they probably care about you too. With Mercury currently retrograde though, there are elements to your closest dynamics you still have to get used to, such as people’s need for distance. Spend time this weekend nurturing your own needs instead of overly concerning yourself with what you think other people may need.
Today’s Libra New Moon takes place at 3:31pm EST, and it activates a six-month cycle of creating more harmony and equilibrium within ourselves and our relationships. Take time to set new moon intentions this weekend regarding how you’d like to consistently feel six months from now. Leo, you’re going to feel more happy and joyful these next six months, particularly if you believe that you deserve to feel that way. Let go of the mistakes you may have made, but remember the lessons they taught you regarding what you need to best evolve. Then commit to living your best life and being your best self — that includes accepting the parts of yourself that aren’t so pretty or glamorous. That’s part of who you are too.
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.
