Sun in Leo

Kelli Fox

The Sun moves into Leo on July 22nd where it will stay until August 23rd.

Under the bright light of the Leo Sun, and depending on how it shines on other planets in your birth chart, you might find yourself longing for recognition. You now want to stand out and be seen and appreciated just for being your unique self. You may become more aware of what makes you special — your talents, personality, and past experience — and you want other people to notice too!

Leo rules the heart, and love is in the air. You might be more romantic than usual, surprising your sweetie with flowers or chocolates. You’ll certainly appreciate being showered with gifts yourself! Leo is the king or queen, and both giving and receiving the royal treatment are highly satisfying.

Creative energy is strong, and this is a great time to devote yourself to your artistic passions and stoke your creative fire. Drama is Leo’s specialty, and when the need for self-expression isn’t honored, melodrama can result.

You need more playtime now, and your inner child is calling for attention. Taking time to have fun and do something frivolous can help you recharge your batteries.

    Like the Sun and the lion, Leo can be both sunny, playful, and warm or stormy, aggressive, and destructive.

    Also, I wish astrologers would stop exaggerating Leo as this show kitty or “drama queen” nonsense! Theatre and drama are only very small parts of the 5th House which includes activities and expressions of ALL kinds including SPORTS, athletics, gambling, risk-taking, etc.

    Describe Leo as the mighty and fierce lion it is.

    And LEO rules the heart in the “passionate, courageous” sense. It doesn’t rule “love” which probably falls under Taurus and Libra since they’re both ruled by Venus.

    If ruling a body part gave you all the qualities associated with it, then Aries should be the smartest, most egghead sign since it rules the head and brain and yet it’s not regarded as a nerd, right? So too Leo should stop being regarded as emotionally “sensitive” or “loving” when it’s the fiercest and strongest sign, much more than a ram or scorpion.
