I can’t believe how fast this year is going. Here we are in the last full week of July and Leo season begins tonight at 10:50pm EST.
When the Sun enters Leo, it gives us a shift in energy from Cancer season. Here in the northern hemisphere it’s summer, and many people are looking forward to vacations, or just getting back from holidays.
We tend to take our time when summer is here, but also try to maximize each day. Some people might try to do as much as possible outdoors, savouring the warmer air and long days.
Others might try to have as few plans as possible, for there is something so freeing about summer that you don’t want to pack your schedule with too many obligations. Just leaving things open can feel so good.
Leo season helps us get a second wind if we need it. Personally, I find this time of year to be one of the most free-flowing. Maybe it’s the fiery energy of Leo that provides an added boost to each day.
Leo’s gregarious, larger-than-life energy can bring some encouragement to go out and make something happen, or make the most of what’s left of the summer season.
Leo also likes to be social, and to be seen. It helps us be out and about, and helps us say yes to all the ways life can unfold – socially, creatively, and personally.
This Saturday, July 27, Venus joins Mars and the Sun when she enters Leo, too, bringing some added fire to the sky. Jupiter remains in Sagittarius, another fire sign.
With the Sun here along with the planet of action (Mars) and art (Venus), we can tap into some beautiful sources of inspiration right now – even if Mercury is still retrograde. Jupiter in Sagittarius can also help us pour some added energy into our personal goals, values and dreams.
I pulled the Empress for this week’s card, a nod to the energy we’re moving into now. The Empress is a wild woman, one who has a tight relationship with her true desires and deepest motivations.
“What is motivating you as you move through this big, wide world?”
Until next time,
