It’s the first day of Leo season! Welcome to the fiery den of the Lion.
This week, as the Sun takes its position in its home sign, Mercury joins Venus mid-week, Mars squares Jupiter, and we finish the week with Venus moving into Leo, it’s drama galore.
It may feel hard to stay grounded and see yourself clearly while everyone projects their own insecurities and fantasies onto one another.
Read the horoscopes for your rising, Sun, and Moon signs to help you remain focused on what your personal lessons and reflections are for this time.
New! I am changing the way horoscopes are done. Below you will see a comment box under each sign’s horoscope for the week. This box is for your own personal answers/immediate responses to the questions posed in the horoscope for that week; it could be how the content relates to you and where you currently are in your life, what you want to focus on this week, and/or how you’ll implement the information you just read.
This change is a response to the way I think horoscopes have become part of consumerist culture- read once and discarded, adding to all of the other noise on the internet that overloads our brains and never gets put to good use. This new form of interactive horoscopes is meant to create a space for you to stop, reflect, and set intentions for your week alongside a community. My content from here on out will be a product of what I learn from you through your answers each week. Join in below!

Happy Solar Return, Leo! This world is so lucky to have your light. The transits ushering in your new year promise some big shifts in what you’re able to accomplish and how you’re able to communicate your needs. What are your goals for accomplishment, this time around the Sun? What kinds of communication and connections do you want to prioritize? Be clear and specific about what you want and make sure that the standards you are setting for others are ones you can match yourself.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It’s time to get back in touch with your spiritual self, and engage with things that remind you how connected you are to everything around you; to your innate power. What kinds of music, settings, lighting, etc help you to feel centered, safe and at-peace? Whose energy and what tasks, activities, etc may you need to take a break from to remain in this state? You have the permission to be selfish, right now, Virgo. Going into the cool waters of the subconscious and remembering your infinite connection to power, love, and spiritual connection are just what you need to make serving yourself and others easeful endeavors.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This week, take a look at how you interact differently with those you have romantic feelings for. How do you communicate differently? How do you listen differently? Do you feel more or less yourself when in their presence? If there is a noticeable gap between how you want to feel or be when around people you “like” vs how you feel/act now, now is the time to begin to address it. Maybe even communicate with those people what you’re actively working on so they can be your accomplice.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
There is nothing stronger than your will, Scorpio. So, where have you been directing it, lately? Towards getting others to do what you want? Or towards getting your energy right so that what you want out of the world and people will come to you? Be very careful with where you direct your energy, right now. Check in on your motives for where you’re putting your attention, and direct all misguided energy back to what truly matters to you to see concrete and promising progress.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Be careful that you don’t become all talk and no action, Sagittarius. Saying you “will” do something is different than doing it. What keeps getting in your way? What are you allowing yourself to get distracted by? It’s time to clear your schedule, body, mind, etc of whatever clutter you’ve been using as an excuse not to tackle the big stuff. Your body, mind, and spirit will all let out a sigh of relief the moment you let go of what doesn’t really matter and recommit yourself to your bigger vision.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The parts of yourself that you don’t know very well may be being coaxed out in various situations, now. Maybe it’s as simple as how you react to large groups of people or how you react to being uncomfortable in a certain climate, or maybe it’s as deep as facing your abandonment issues or obsession with control. Ask yourself: what parts of myself are being revealed, right now? Do they feel new? How do I want to go about honoring and integrating them? The longer you put off doing this work, the more it will get in the way of everything else. So, do your best to leave fear out of it and embrace exactly where you are.
Leo season highlights your house of partnership and balance. Are there things that feel out of balance in your life and relationships, right now? Now is the time to address them. The lesson Leo teaches us, as a fixed fire sign, is that we don’t need to push ourselves beyond being exactly who and where we are. So, whichever commitments and other parts of your life feel like they require you to stretch yourself or go above and beyond, start the work there.
It’s time to take a closer look at your health, Pisces. What have you been engaging with in excess and what are your deficiencies? What is your commitment to daily movement and grounding? These things are crucial points of power for you, right now. Once you address what may seem to be minuscule aspects of your self-care routines, you will be amazed at how quickly everything else falls into place.
(March 21-April 19)
This week, the circumstances should align just in your favor. Thus, this week is a lesson in how you hold yourself back when nothing else is in your way. What are your most consistent forms of self-sabotage in your relationships, work, etc? How can you make a plan for how you will address them as they arise, this week? The time is right to make some moves, which means it’s also time to get out of your own way.
(April 20-May 20)
You may be feeling quite reclusive, right now, and wish you didn’t. The most frustration and anguish will come from going against your natural inclinations. Before you make moves, sit quietly with yourself and see if the urges are coming from a fear-based place, or if they are actually in service of your highest good. When born from fear, make an effort to push back and rally to move in the best direction for you. When they feel born from intuition and grounded “knowing,” find a way to be at peace with them and act decisively.
(May 21-June 21)
It’s time for you to branch out, Gemini. Running around the same circles and going through the same motions isn’t serving you. This week, think about what kinds of topics and in what kinds of communities you really shine and feel pushed outside of your comfort zone to grow. Then, seek those spaces out and engage fully in what they have to offer. Going to the next level in your embodiment and how much space you take up may be uncomfortable, but that’s what it takes to grow.
(June 22-July 22)
Leo season may make you feel like being extra; extra dramatic, extra sensual, extra with your spending, and extra generous. If there was any time to employ staunch intentions with your cash, time, romantic and otherwise energy, it would be now. What kinds of people and projects are you really wanting to invest in, right now? What do you think will give you the biggest “bang for your buck” and be able to nourish you in return? Turn your sights away from anything other than these things. It’s not about being stingy, it’s about being smart.
