Express yourself! The Sun is in Leo, the zodiac’s second fire sign ruled by the blazing Sun and connecting us to our higher selves.
Leo season begins on July 22, as the Sun blazes into the Lion’s domain until August 22. Time for a costume change or total wardrobe makeover? The show ponies, theater geeks and spotlight hogs shall inherit the earth if we don’t give them a run for their Tony awards. Pitch, perform, present! A fierce AF style upgrade could get attention; diving into your creative gifts is another way to make a splash, so flaunt your magic so the world can see what you’re really made of. This confidence-boosting solar cycle wants us to market and promote our offerings—through shameless plugs or the good ‘ol humblebrag.
The downside of this fiery phase? We can overestimate our abilities and get caught up in ego trips. Keep a proverbial Lion’s paw planted on Planet Earth to avoid losing touch with reality. Cupid will hover in the ether for this four-week phase as Leo energy is all about the romance. Scatter rose petals over the ones you adore and ignore the cries of “Get a room!” should you get swept into a passionate round of PDA.
To help you tap into the feisty, passionate energy of this dramatic star sign, we’ve asked our friend Terri Cole—a psychotherapist, meditation expert and awesome Aries—to give you a guided meditation to help put our egos in check, so we don’t let all that praise and attention go to our heads. And since Leo also rules the heart and spine, this season is all about literally “having a spine”—being courageous and speaking your truth; being authentic instead of “nice.”
To get started: Find a quiet, private nook or set up a sacred space in your home. Simply press play, and enter the “Zen Den” with Terri, allowing her soothing voice and words of wisdom to ground you in stillness. Be sure to check back next month for the continuation of this ongoing series for more guided meditations with Terri.
