Welcome to the shiny, magnanimous season of the regal lion and to our second New Moon of the month, the Black New Moon! This Cancer season brought with it two trying and intense eclipses and a Mercury retrograde that challenged us to confront our past, integrate our shadow, and level up. Moving into Leo season, we reach our fullest and most radiant embodiment. With today marking the end of Mercury retrograde, this New Moon allows us to weave together our recent reflections so that we can transform into our brightest and most beautifully authentic selves. Without a doubt, lively Leo season tells us to forget any shame, indulge our wild side and celebrate the full volume of our being!
Leo is a fixed-fire sign that asks us reach for our most magnificent imaginings, to be bold, to honor the divine that flows through us, and to express the creativity that comes with our uniqueness. We can honor this sign by working from a place of full-heartedness, from a place that honors all our creations and all the cosmos that emanate around us at every moment. This sign asks us to honor our loved ones by being outspoken about our affections for them, to embrace each moment of life with a burning passion, and to be open to receive it as an immense gift.
Like the Sun and it’s golden rays, Leo season wants you vibrate at your highest frequency. It wants you to stay loyal to your self-worth. It wants you to feel your immeasurable value in the depth of your heart so that you may truly elevate to your highest and most exuberant self. With the Sun, this New Moon, Venus, Mars, and as of the 11th of August, Mercury in Leo, this upcoming month wants you to be prideful, to see how absolutely special you are, and to soak in all your divineness!
Allow your inner-body to be filled with abundant energy + light.

Leo is the sign of the regal and fierce lion, the performer, the ego and the eternal fire; in the tarot it is ruled by the card, Strength.
Leo is also ruled by the Sun, the planet of creation, generosity and where our being shines through; in the tarot it is ruled by the card, The Sun.
Strength asks us: “Where can we lay down our defenses to come into the world softly and with hope, so that we can illuminate our passions proudly?”
The Sun asks us: “How can we invite more joy into our lives so that we can bask in the wonderous and playful vitality that the universe provides?”
