Sun in Leo: Time to Shine!

Sun in Leo: Time to Shine!

Linked to Apollo, the Sun is a symbol for light, creativity and confidence. As the Sun energizes its home sign of Leo, July 22 to August 23, everyone has a chance to tap into this strong, expressive celestial energy.

Apollo was also known as “Leader of the Muses”, so this Sun period is encouraging you to tap in to your true essence and realize your creative potential. If you need a theme song, listen to Katy Perry’s “Firework”. “There’s a spark in you, ignite the light, let it shine”!

The Sun in Leo represents leadership and royalty. Now is the time to take charge and make things happen. And with love planet Venus in the mix, it’s all about expressing your affection boldly. Romance should be 5-star now, so if you’re out to impress someone special, splurge on quality.

Fire is also highlighted now, as both the Sun and Leo are considered hot, dry energies. This brings heat, which leads to action. The symbolic fire of the Sun in Leo is one that burns steadily. If you have a dream – creative, romantic or otherwise – and you want to last, beginning it under the influence of the Sun in Leo is ideal.

When in Leo, the Sun links to some of the other planets as well. Here’s what to expect and how to best utilize this bright energy!

July 27: Sun/Uranus
This electric energy brings unexpected encounters and creative breakthroughs. You might surprise yourself with how expressive you are now, but being true to what’s right for you is key. Freedom and independence are priorities.

August 1: Sun/Jupiter
Beware of excess or going over the top. Jupiter expands the already brimming confidence of the Sun in Leo, and you may take things too far now. Being generous is a great idea, but don’t give more than you can -- or to someone who won’t value what you have to offer.

August 5: Sun/Saturn
Showing off your mature side is key as Saturn asks that you make choices responsibly. Keeping commitments is a must, and following through earns great respect now.

August 14: Sun/Venus
After following the Sun all month, Venus finally gets her moment in, well, the Sun! This is a great day for sweet connections. Be playful and creative in romance now.

August 22: Sun/Neptune
Fantasy blends with reality now and working out what’s true might be confusing. This is a good day for escaping reality and taking time out.
