The Sun entered Leo on Saturday, July 22, 2023, 6:50 p.m PDT. The Sun naturally rules over Leo, and so everyone will be feeling the urge to bring forth a new sense of identity for themselves. Venus stationed retrograde in Leo just minutes before this shift, highlighting that Leo Season will be about going after personal passion projects, rediscovering self-confidence in your art, and finding new beauty in the unique way you express yourself.

Leo Season reminds us that you set the tone in every room with your every action and reaction. This means no matter what comes your way, if you want your creations to see the light of day, you must learn how to take criticism in stride. As much as things like your identity or your creative projects are near and dear to your heart, it's the community votes that get you your claim to fame. The Cancer New Moon reminded us how to filter opinions through our guides, so it's not about just blindly integrating others' thoughts into our ideas, but it's about understanding that without finding those who resonate with you, no one will ever know your story. So you have to go out there, test what you've built, and see if it has the strength to find who it's meant to.

We'll learn a lot this season about maintaining integrity, meaning keeping internal consistency while also being honest about the evolution that takes place along the way. Don't let your pride rob your of your dreams. Your purpose is too great to waste time worrying about controlling how others who don't resonate with you or your journey perceive you. And it's too great for you to be too good to admit that someone else could possibly come up with a better improvement to your idea that took you 2 years to create in 2 minutes.

The transition from Cancer Season to Leo Season is like the Mother sending her child out into the world, knowing that she can't be there to protect them, but instead, trusting herself, that she's given them all the resources to able to find their own way, and sprout their own cause and meaning to life. Let the seeds you've planted show what they can do. You'll find more joy in seeing that your creations can withstand any harsh weather on their own than if you hovered and micromanaged to the point where you stunted their growth.

Shine in your light unapologetically. Find your pack and link arms with them for support. If you have to hide your identity in your relationships, this may be a time where you need to separate from others. Work with your ego every time you need a reminder of what your value is, but work with your heart when you have to deal with disrespect. This is what it takes to stay true to yourself. This is what it means to know yourself.
