After an introspective four weeks during under-the-radar Cancer season, suddenly all the world’s a talent show as the live-out-loud Lion takes center stage on July 22. Ready or not, all eyes are on Lion and we will learn his magic of ruling and playing at same time. Here are some tips how to do it with ease and joy shared by AstroTwins.
Practice the art of storytelling.
All the world is a stage while the Sun is in Leo, so rehearse your lines…and script them wisely! You will be applauded—or booed—loudly now when you step up to the mic. But don’t let that stop you from making an unforgettable impression. Leo season is prime for flaunting uour talents, and passion will be the driving force behind just about everything you do—whether or not your performance involves a stage.
Many people will dare to be more vulnerable during Leo season, but be wary of getting swept away in personal theatrics. Leo energy can cause us to upstage others at times, forgetting that each and every person is a valuable member to a team. Use Leo’s flair for powerful leadership but make sure everyone has their place on the playbill.
While life turns into an improv festival, here’s a tip for the shy ones among us: Use storytelling as a way to engage others—especially since it’s been scientifically proven to activate the brain! Use (non-rambling, please) anecdotes to illustrate a point, skipping those dry, bulleted lists. During Leo season, we’re on the edge of our seats, ready to be moved and motivated. Share your experiences and speak directly from your heart.
Embrace the power of “owning it.”
Do you! Leo energy encourages us to add our signature stamp to all that we do. Leo season is a time of pageantry, a cosmic coming-out of sorts. Wardrobe? Check! Experiment with your hair and makeup, or don accessories and colors you don’t normally wear. Maybe get a tattoo. And while you don’t have to go full diva or debutante, have some fun with your look. Style is a tool for self-expression, so choose the statement you want to make. This is NOT a season for fashion as tyranny or an elitist insider’s club. Fiery Leo is a democratic sign, urging us all to express ourselves outwardly. And yes, we recognize that the #flaunt factor of Leo time can bring up body and self-image issues. (For that, we suggest reading our Body-Positive Summer Horoscopes here!)
Things could get unnecessarily complicated.
Ugh, drama. During Leo season, trying to make a simple plan can feel like negotiating world peace. There will be more “difficult” and childish personalities to navigate than at an elite private pre-school “open admissions” day! Take a deep breath. Remember that the current situation is NOT the end of the world, or the last opportunity you’ll ever have, or your moment to deliver an Oscar-worthy acceptance speech (unless, of course, you’re winning an award). Do your part and urge others to keep it simple…and don’t add to the unnecessary theatrics yourself! For help keeping your wits about you, listen to our Leo Season Guided Meditation here.
Unleash your inner child.
One danger of Leo season is that people take themselves too seriously. Everything becomes SO charged with meaning and importance that simple interactions turn into soap operas. Too much! Make a conscious effort to keep things fun and lighten up. Leo rules the zodiac’s fifth house of playfulness and childlike wonder. Host a party, hop on the “adult coloring” bandwagon, experiment with a DIY craft. Break into interpretive dance during the morning meeting to add some levity. Bring some of Leo’s life-force energy into the mix by getting creative—and physical.
Push the envelope.
While Leo season’s childish demands can be exhausting, the whole idea of “acting your age” deserves to be roundly dismissed. Forget about all of society’s “rules” during this live-out-loud phase. Reinvention queen Madonna is a Leo, as is the ageless and ever-limber Jennifer Lopez. Leo energy is an endless bag of tricks—and Leo season is a time to do something edgy and fun that disrupts the boring status quo. During Leo season, let’s all hold our heads high instead of staying small!
Know the difference between bravery and bullying.
Leo is ruled by the proud and regal Sun, the center of our solar system. During Leo season, we may occasionally um, forget that the world doesn’t revolve around us. Egos can run amok. Defending our “honor” or “principles” can start to sound a lot like bullying and bigotry. So feel free to have an opinion—and to take a stand for it. Just make sure you’re not silencing someone else’s right to have theirs.
If you must roar, do it with love.
Prepare to dodge some chest-beating loudmouths during Leo season. Sadly, the most obnoxious people to surface during Leo time are often well-dressed, charismatic and fiery. But what the heck are they saying? Let’s not get so dazzled by the show ponies that we end up running off with their circus!
Welcome Leo in our life! During Leo season, we’re on the edge of our seats, ready to be moved and motivated. Share your experiences and speak directly from your heart. ROAR!
