Since July 22, the Sun has left Cancer, the territory of the crab, to enter Leo, where it will remain until August 23. This is important because the Sun is the governing planet of Leo, which means that with the energy of the Sun, we will all feel that the moment has come to shine.
Leo is a sign of fire, ruled by the Sun itself. Like the Sun, Leo likes to be at the center of everything and has a good command of self-expression. He tends to thrive in the spotlight and is very euphoric about leaving his mark on the world.
Leo’s energy is warm, generous, optimistic and solar, so it’s a comforting and summery astrological month that encourages us to be the best and brightest version of ourselves.
