Leo Season: August Horoscopes

OPI Leo Colorscope
  • OPI Leo Colorscope

    Leo Season! A fixed fire sign, Leo is ruled by the Sun–the center of our solar system, shining bright daily, never asking for feedback. Like the Sun, (we all have Leo somewhere in our birth chart, look to the house cusp). Leo is innocently comfortable being himself or herself. During Leo season, there is a childlike innocence that emphasizes individuality. Now is the time to become more aware of yourself, your soul purpose, to strengthen your self-confidence by being proud of who you are, and to radiate that awareness out to others. Leo season is about enjoying life, about playing hard like a child, innocently, and authentically. Leo’s pride themselves on being integral, honest, and unapologetically themselves. Cheers to Leo season and enjoying who you are–think of it as a responsibility! We’re all learning to love ourselves more open-heartedly this month!

    For the most part, Leo season is relatively laid back with Uranus as the only planet going retrograde. p> Those who indulge during Leo season most are like-minded fire signs, Aries and Saggitarius, plus Libra’s and Gemini’s.

However, this feeling will build within you before exploding outwardly, cultivate it intentionally.
