Leo season: See your horoscope for the coming month


This Leo season will likely feature some collective shocks, shaking and trembling, but this same surge can lead to individual breakthroughs and upgrades.

Shortcuts: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces

Around the new moon on the 28th, we’ll have an opportunity to recognize where we need to give a humble oomph to renovate some aspects of our life. If we don’t give this a burst of momentum and make some serious progress into it, our full moon on the 12th will be particularly heavy, but if we pass that test, we can feel much more masterful and sturdy. Altogether, this is definitely the most intense month of astro-weather until eclipse season in November, but there’s certainly excitement and possibility if we can be clear-headed.

Leo: July 22-Aug. 23

Leo: July 23-Aug. 22

Welcome to your native season, Leo! This year, you’re invited to suffuse your radiant light with an extra bit of sweetness and attentiveness. Even as you’ll likely feel an extra strong surge of ambition and a need to break free of your restraints and limitations, the real trick to succeed will be in bringing softness and care into the equation. In doing so, you can jump into a way of being that isn’t just bigger and better, but also more sustainable and able to be savored. Figuring out how to share and synergize with others in your adventure would be particularly helpful.

Virgo: Aug. 23- Sept. 21

Virgo: Aug. 23-Sept. 21

Leo season is high time for you to be exploring and savoring life’s mysteries, Virgo. Although appreciating the fiery and wild sides of these esoteric realms would be fun—and you need some sort of alchemical heat—the real magic will come about by exploring the natural world and appreciating your web of relations. In this regard, there’s a challenge for you to integrate the colorful activity of your inner world with the tangible outer world. In doing so, you can appreciate how they really aren’t separate at all.

Libra: Sept. 22-Oct. 23

Libra: Sept. 22-Oct. 23

This Leo season will pull you through some of the tricky intricacies of your social web, Libra, from the stories you tell about the big individuals in your life and the concrete details of how you share your life with them to the roles you play in the bigger circles you’re a part of. Through the first part of the month, moving with slow, sweet care will keep you from moving too fast and tripping up, although you might also want to make some big moves or act with sharp assertions. After the Full Moon on the 12th, you’ll likely be able to feel more clear and decisive in this.

Scorpio: Oct. 24-Nov. 21

Scorpio: Oct. 24-Nov. 21

More than anyone else, you’ve got the tools to push through the stress and rise to the occasion this Leo season, Scorpio. Beyond focusing on your strongest and most noble individual expression and its next evolution—which can certainly click into gear this month—this won’t happen by ignoring others, but rather by figuring out how to care for and work with them in a vigorous and hearty manner. If you’re getting too caught up in your own game, the full moon on the 12th will remind you how to be humble. If you’re open and on point in working with others, this full moon will renew and strengthen your supportive root structures.

Sagittarius: Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Sagittarius: Nov. 22-Dec. 21

This Leo season will bring you a renewal of vigor and strength from within, Sagittarius. This surge of energy will be directed to both the everyday challenges of life and your bigger sense of adventure, perhaps bringing out even unprecedented resolve. On the other hand, real growth and expansion will also entail refinement and clarification, which might feel like being humble. The endpoint is a noble and buoyant spirit, able to navigate the small details of life with grace, generosity, and zest.

Capricorn: Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Capricorn: Dec. 22-Jan. 19

This Leo season brings you a chance to go through the fires of transformation, Capricorn, especially regarding practical concerns and considerations. Insofar as you need to adjust, correct, or upgrade the concrete structures of your life, this month will be an opportunity to do so with vigor and wit. It could be great to take a healthy risk or figure out ways to unleash latent potential, but the key leverage points and foundations for future growth are those places where you feel most connected with the people in your life.

Aquarius: Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Aquarius: Jan. 20-Feb. 18

In this summer’s story-arc of your crystallize into a more brilliant self, this Leo season is a key period. On the one hand, you’ll have a chance to push yourself to new levels of sharp strength and steady dedication. On the other, around the full moon you’re likely to experience some sort of test, stark feedback, or demand for a decision. Regardless of how things are looking or developing externally, you can take this month as a time to define yourself, who you want to be, and patiently move towards that desired, exciting future.

Pisces: Feb. 19-March 20

Pisces: Feb. 19-March 20

This Leo season highlights the back and forth between the warm, lively world of your everyday world and the cool, electric realms you explore in solitude. On the one hand, this month is calling you into more generosity and bravery in your work and offerings to the world. Especially around the new moon, you can find renewal through simplicity, doubling down on what is clearly promising. If you do this right, your quiet time will be less haunted by struggle—instead, you can find yourself more easily opening up into life’s subtlety and magic.

Aries: March 21-April 19

Aries: March 21-April 19

This Leo Season is the time to figure out how your recent flashes of enthusiasm and possibility can stabilize into steady flames, Aries. The surges of raw energy that have pulsed through you over the past few months are likely going to quiet down a bit, but rather than getting disappointed, you might take it as a challenge to really get dedicated to your most noble potentials and to stay even-keeled through the ups and downs of inspiration. Especially around the full moon on the 12th, this might feel a bit serious and stressful, and you might really have to fight to stay encouraged. More than anything, though, this is a process of maturation, teaching you to stay true to your values and to bravely share your gifts with the world.

Taurus: April 20-May 20

Taurus: April 20-May 20

This Leo Season will likely feature a strong, obvious call for you to metamorphose into the next stage of your development, Taurus. You’re getting a direct hit of this month’s fiery and electric energy, and although it will probably be pretty uncomfortable, resisting change will be a lot more difficult than dancing into a new frontier. This doesn’t have to be altogether hectic and rushed, though—you can take things step by step, savoring each small development and breathing through the moments of letting go. You don’t have to do this alone, either—enlisting the support or help of dear friends and family, who might make the process more fun or sweet.

Gemini: May 21-June 20

Gemini: May 21-June 20

This month will likely be meaningful and lively for you, Gemini, as your ruling planet Mercury is moving at a fast pace through the fiery, colorful sign of Leo. It will be a great time to converse with interesting personalities and to probe curiosities outside of your comfort zone. As we head toward the full moon on the 12th, though, all of this mental motion could confront you with some serious shifts in your big-picture world view, confronting you with heavy or hard truths. As you’re carving your path through this, pay primary attention to the quality of your internal experience—this month could either leave you feeling restless and aimless or settled into something exciting and rich.

Cancer: June 21-July 22

Cancer: June 21-July 22

This Leo season is giving you the task to rely upon your own strength and maturity, Cancer. Beyond helping you nourish and sustain yourself, you might find this bravery intrinsically rewarding. There are a couple of ways that you can support this inner fire—one would be to ensure that you’re feeding it with high-quality fuel, and another would be to surround yourself with folk that you can easily share your warm light with and to have it reflected back to you. In this regard, a bit of initiative or risk-taking in your social circles could help you make some serious strides.
