23 JULY 2021

It is all too easy in the face of pandemonium and commotion to misplace sovereignty. To drop the sceptre and step on your own train. To forget that finding your centre has naught to do with what’s going on outside your window and everything to do with the sacred chambers that lie within you. Leo season will offer us significant firepower to warm ourselves by, with room for basking and burning of the old.


After a sodden excursion through Cancer’s stormy waters, Leo arrives as antidote and promise. It flickers with constant encouragement and nuzzles our creative underbellies. It calls us to nourish our hearts with their dearest desires, claiming our place in the pride as we stalk new dreams. Anything in our reach is fair game.


The lair of the lion is no place for haters, imitators or faux anything. Do You and You only. Forego comparison and shun the dictates of the old guard. Reject ignoble gestures for regal statements that belie your best intentions and highest values. The shortcut to a Leo state of mind is your heart. Your breath. Your pulse. Your pacemaker setting the rhythm. Letting your heart rather than head run the show. And with a dazzling toss of your mane, owning the lot.


Leo invites the kind of personal sovereignty that need not trifle but it is also not afraid to roar. Never backwards in coming forwards, Leo confidence is innate and celebrates its individuality as much as its dramatic flair for attention. It funnels rampant creativity into personal expression and cultivating a brand all of its own. Courage is Leo’s signature scent and tenacity is their lifeblood.


Leo this year includes not one but two Aquarius full moons within its gates, ensuring that no revolutionary stone is left unturned. By asking us to marry our inner rebel with bespoke leadership and our creative hearts, we are called into the next era of our lives. We will be required to leave our old ways at the entrance to the lair of the lion and make our way through the jungle using our wiles and our wits.


Our next season in the sun invites us to shine, no matter the conditions. Leo’s welcome optimism lifts our chins and squares our shoulders as loyalty to what matters most claims the frame. Time to get glowing.
