When the Sun enters his home turf of Leo on July 22, the themes of creativity and leadership will shine brightly. The powerful and life-giving energy of the Sun radiates most strongly when in the constellation of Leo. The generosity of the Sun brings an enthusiasm and determination to exert our willpower.
Wherever Leo sits in your birth chart reveals in what areas you’re naturally gifted with power, authority and presence. Tap into your limitless confidence during this amazing time. Forget about playing small or making excuses not to play big. The Sun will not allow your uniqueness to remain hidden under this very powerful and auspicious influence.
The Sun in Leo also brings a very childlike and playful quality to our self-expression. We are reminded to connect with our own inner divine child instead of letting the grumpy and jaded adult snuff out our dreams. Harnessing the loving and generous aspects of the Sun in Leo puts us in touch with that childlike wonder. Staying in tune with the innocent side of Leo will prevent the shadow side of arrogance or self-importance from reading its ugly head. There is a fine line between letting ourselves shine and seeking constant attention and applause.
We may crave more reassurance and compliments than normal while the Sun is in his own self-aggrandizing sign, but the lesson is to love ourselves and express that love in everything we do rather than look for validation from external applause. We are able to direct our will with great force now with the solar fire supporting us. As long as we stay connected to the mandates of our heart and live and create accordingly, we’ll discover how infinite our potential truly is.
