Feel the Passion and Drive of Leo Season (July 22 – August 22)

Leo season is one of my favorite times of the year.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s the height of Summer and the vibe is all about warmth, passionate energy, and enjoying life to the fullest.

As always, regardless of your zodiac sign, you will feel the energy of the prevailing astrological sign when the Sun visits it.

The Sun in Leo is particularly powerful as Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun, and this brings a force of light, life and energy to all of us.

You can harness some of this great, beautiful heart-centered Leo energy for yourself and use it to make positive steps toward your dreams!

As we transition from the self-care and healing oriented energy of the Cancer season, we can use it to thrive in the vibrant energy of the Leo season.

Leo energy brings courage (it is represented by the male lion after all) and encourages us to focus on our passions and greatest desires.

Leo is also about self-expression and using your voice!

As a fire sign, Leo likes to charge forward with determination and drive.

If you could do with a little bravery and confidence in any area of ​​your life, Leo season helps you connect with bold energy, encouraging you to use it as fuel for your passions and desires.

If you know how to use Leo energy right, you can use it to face challenges, tackle difficult tasks or conversations and empower yourself to make bold decisions about your life.

Leo energy helps to boost self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love and magnetizes abundance towards you.

    To make sure you’re connecting with your passions, take time each morning to set an intention for the day ahead.

    Choose a mantra or affirmation such as:

    I am confident and creative, and I use my time to shine.

    Then try checking back with that mantra as you go about your day to remind yourself that you have the courage and passion to see through any challenges or difficulties that arise.

    You can also consider creative exercises such as painting, writing, playing music, baking or dancing as an outlet for any excess energy and drive to drive your creativity.
