What’s the biggest takeaway you’ve learned over these past few weeks living in the den of the lion?
Although Leo season nearly is over, it’s worth reflecting on the lessons that the energy of this season brought. Assess your progress. Whether or not you’re consciously working on self-improvement, you are always growing, shifting & changing – using astrology simply allows you to take control & direction of the areas in which you wish to grow.
We know that Leo is most known for its tendencies to be egotistical, self-absorbed, & arrogant, but the true balanced energy of Leo serves to help us find our self-worth. Understanding that we are all important & are capable of bringing so much value to the world is exactly the learning lesson that the king of the zodiac wants us to learn. It takes a lot of courage to unapologetically value ourselves highly in a world that conditions us to believe that this is arrogance. The world teaches us backwards: the only way to be good is to be humble, & the only way to be humble is to remove ourselves from the spotlight or present ourselves in the most unflattering way. Leo refuses this philosophy & encourages us to be bold in our proclamations of self-love, because it is possible to be a leader that is just & generous as much as they are confident.
As we transition into Virgo season, it is essential to understand Leo’s learning lesson before trying to tackle the themes of Virgo. Virgo, the sign of the pure virgin, has a focused & laborious energy that will catapult us into work mode – but if we don’t understand our worth first, then what exactly would we be working towards? Virgo is ready to work for those goals, but if you don’t know, love, & accept yourself the way Leo wants you to, then your work will have no purpose, no direction, & no fulfillment.
We have just a few more hours with the sun in Leo, so take the time to reflect on the values of the lion and see how you can integrate a healthy dose of unapologetic self-love into your personal growth repertoire. Self-worth is tantamount to success, so don’t apologize for giving yourself the love and recognition that you deserve.
