LEO SEASON

 

JULY 23 - AUGUST 22

It's time to roar, baby. We're here, we're unapologetic and guess what? We're fabulous. It's Leo season, and the lion is telling us to step into our power and make some damn noise. Ruled by the element of fire, Leo season is all about what lights us up and turns us on. After emotional Cancer season, we're being asked to step into our fullest embodiment and shine like the King of the jungle. What can you do to reclaim your power? How can you begin to see yourself as the radiant, passionate, jewel of a soul you are?

Leo season is hedonistic. It's selfish. It's asking you what YOU can do for yourself. What turns your mind, body and soul on, and how can you give that to yourself? Leo season is all about working with the ego and not against it. You don't play with fire if you're not ready to be burned. Leo season invites us to step into a new, shiny, glamorous versions of ourselves. It's all about making a statement without shying away from the attention it may bring. It asks us to drip in finesse by wearing bold prints and textures, plenty of metallic and of course gold, gold, gold. Leo season is asking you to embody your potential without shame or apology. So do it and go get em, tiger.
