This past Cancer season and Mercury retrograde
What have we adopted along
Leo season is here to shake things up. As the retrograde comes to an end, stay honest with yourself, because Leo is here to support the strongest parts of you. When you were asked to look in the mirror and catch your honest reflection, it may have caught you off guard, you may have seen new parts of yourself and that took a little time to come to terms with, to process and to resolve.
Now that we are in Leo season, it’s time to start embracing all those new qualities we have discovered. There is a quote that comes to mind for this upcoming month, “The universe will make you so uncomfortable that you have no choice but to move.” If this rings true for you, let yourself move. The direction may still be foggy and the goal may be lost, but this is your time to do it anyway. By July 31, Mercury will be stationing direct, we will have the sun, moon, and Venus in Leo. Although we have a shadow period after Mercury stations direct, this will be a great time to move forward with all the things that we have seen in a new light, and a great time to welcome the new opportunities, and say our farewells to the things that we now have learned are not for us anymore.
It’s likely that Cancer season was heavy and filled with grief. We were mourning the end of a chapter in our lives, whether it was conscious or not. The beauty of this Leo season is that we are able to welcome in change and fresh new opportunities because we have done the work to let go of what wasn’t fitting in our lives anymore. The second half of the year is about to begin, and we have the power to transform into and to create anything we desire.
Leo is ruled by the sun and this season brings confidence, motivation, strong bonds and relationships and most importantly, this season brings FUN. The days are longer, the sun is shining brighter and we are filled with energy to accomplish tasks and to be out in the world doing, saying, wanting and being MORE. Leo season is a time of abundance and manifestation, so for the next few days leading into the new moon, take time to clear out the rest of the dust that has settled within you. Find ways to approach this new moon with strong intentions.
Fire signs in my life have often been a source of inspiration and courage. They have an incredible ability to reach higher information and source energy because they move quickly through obstacles. They approach everything with a lightness, knowing that everything is temporary. They teach us that the only way to persevere is to try, even in the face of fear, of the unknown, of the difficulties and all the frustrations, you just try, you just do it. Failure does not exist to a fire sign, they see everything as a process of manifestation until they reach the fruit of the labor they have endured. All things are done with passion, heart
As scary as it might be to approach a new life that you have always dreamt of, the only way to have it, is to work for it, endlessly, tirelessly, until you have far more than you ever even thought possible. And this Leo season hears you and supports you. To quote my favorite book of all time, The Alchemist “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho
If you are the kind of person who finds solace in journaling, I present these questions for you to reflect and focus on until the new moon on July 31!
- What weighs me down, and what am I ready to release and let go of?
- Am I mindful of how I give my energy?
- Have I set clear boundaries in my life?
- Am I open to new opportunities presenting themselves?
Sending you all the light and love during this powerful transitional time. I will catch you all in Virgo season!
Always the best,
