Leo season begins on July 22nd, with the Sun's ingress into the sign that it rules. This means its light will be as strong as it gets, illuminating pride, power, purpose, and play. Venus and Mercury are already here, emphasizing Leo's drive to create, shine and stand out.
This transit can hi-light celebrations, romance, or the drive for more recognition. If circumstances seem to dictate a certain response from you, know that you always have the final say in how you respond. For example, Leo's emphasis can spotlight jealousy, adultery or the pain of not being recognized.
There are two sides to every sign. And the Sun in Leo's high beams will illuminate both sides.
Whatever's lit up for you, know that it's drawing your attention to what you have created, or what you need to create. Are you proud of what's taking centre stage in your life? If not, what can you do to change that?
Another side of Leo that isn't discussed much is integration. It's not as sexy as the other Leo attributes, but it's really the key to understanding this sign. Leo puts it all together (centre of the universe). Before you can realize your special purpose and create, you need to take the raw materials and give them form. Connect all the dots. Think of what leads up to a piece of art, or performance, and you have the idea. These things don't materialize out of nowhere. And since Leo is a "me first" sign, that integration always goes back to you: you're the star, you're the reason.
What's your purpose? What happens when you're ignored, or when others deny your purpose?
