It’s officially 🦁Leo Season🦁 meow!
the switch from CANCER to LEO is like night and day, almost literally as Cancer is Lunar energy (ruled by the Moon-internal emotions) and Leo is Solar energy (ruled by the Sun-external creation).
Leo is fixed fire- meaning it is the most sustained source of fire in the zodiac. When we talk about seasons in an agricultural sense, “fixed” represents a period of sustained growth in between the planting of the seed and harvest. Metaphorically, this gives Leo an ability to be consistent and follow through with projects through to the very end, driven by genuine passion for creativity.
Leo is the natural ruler of the fifth house, as Judy Hall describes: “a self-expressive house, the 5th house encompasses everything that is creative, including ideas, dreams, music and art. This is where the soul goes forth into the world, where the inner landscape is made visible.”
The zodiac is beginning to heat up after having been under water for what felt like an eternity. When the Sun hits drenched land, new life begins to grow. We just had a New Moon in Cancer on June 20, kickstarting a fresh cycle of manifestation. Mercury is finally direct in Cancer, Mars is exalted in Aries, and the Saturn+Pluto+Jupiter conjunction is still going strong in Capricorn. All of these planets are in Cardinal signs- meaning there’s an immense of leadership energy to tap into during this time.
Virgo season is up next; which is the time of dutiful harvest. Utilize that magnetic leonine energy while you can! Be proud! Be bold! Get shit done! Shine the spotlight on yourself! Design the life you want, not the one someone tells you you should have. At least for this month.
