Leo season is officially in full swing!

The zodiac sign Leo is ruled by the Sun, which is the center of our solar system, and this makes it so that Leos naturally draw attention to themselves. They also tend to be natural leaders.

They have big hearts and love to lift others up with them, which makes them very loyal people.

Since Leos are such trusting people, it is really easy for them to get taken advantage of and they can sometimes be petty when their loyalty isn’t returned to them.

Leo is a fixed zodiac sign, along with Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio. This means that their period is in the middle of the season. Fixed signs tend to be very stubborn and passionate.

They put their whole heart into everything that they do and don’t appreciate when they have to change their plans.

As for the moon this week, the ruler of our emotions, we are starting off with the moon in Cancer.

This may make our emotions feel a little stronger, and we may be feeling a little more lethargic.

New Moon Incoming

On Thursday, July 28, we have a new moon! A new moon is the best time for manifesting what you want to bring into your life and being grateful to the universe for bringing it to you.

A great way to do this is to write a letter and ask the universe for what you want while stating how thankful you are for it.

An example of this would be, I am grateful to be spending more time with my loved ones. After doing this, you may find yourself working towards these personal goals more and find that your manifestations are happening!

The crystal of the week is Sunstone!

Since Leo is ruled by the sun, Sunstone is a perfect gem for Leo season.

Sunstone brings self confidence and freedom, and it radiates bright energy around you, which can snag you the attention of others. It can also bring romance and good luck your way.

Carrying this crystal on you during Leo season can bring out the best traits of the season!
