Leo has a reputation for being self-focused, but this year you will feel as if the self you've so carefully constructed is being unraveled. The people you feel closest to will offer you reflections about who you are, and the truth may bring about a shift of radical proportions.
New people will come into your life to assist you in uncovering more of your uniqueness and even eccentricities. Allow yourself to become a wilder, stranger version of yourself.
With partners and close friends, there may be challenges as you learn more about what you need in order to feel loved. The key to success this year involves letting go of stubborn tendencies with regard to your significant others, and instead allowing more freedom and space between you and your beloveds.
Take time in late spring and summer to reevaluate your own aspirations and dreams for your life. Is the universe urging you to take on more of a leadership role in your community? Are you striving to live up to ideals that are unrealistic?Are you too scattered to come up with a plan for the future?
Rather than than over-relying on yourself, listen to your chosen family and the broader community to see how your creative gifts may be best utilized.

We have work to do this year. We may have to rethink our whole philosophy and approach in some quadrant of our life to bring it into line with our present understanding.
Then take action.
Read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and ascendant. Your ascendant points to the practical components where work needs to be done, the Sun to the evolution of your core personality, and the Moon to where you're challenged to stretch your heart.
You're called to stretch in your relationships of all types, to really feel you are equal to anyone you deal with, and they are equal to you.
Whether a romantic partner, business partner, or stranger, drop your preconceptions and explore with curiosity.
Question your interpersonal habits which might arise out of insecurity, or that create distance—they no longer serve you, Explore the comfort of mutually empowering relationships, and watch this create generous safety.

Leo: Creativity, charisma, warmth, and enthusiasm. Gather with others to celebrate and share bounty.
Let your soul light shine; light up the room for the benefit of all involved. Generous, idealistic, stubborn, expansive and creative, your challenge is to see the beauty in others, learn to listen and share the limelight.

Leo Moon Sign can shine and gather others around with their natural charisma. When they use their light for all sentient beings, they are natural teachers and centers of the community; their challenge can be to get out of their own perspective and honor another's path.
Our natal moon sign describes what makes us feel at home, how we process emotion, and how we handle our daily life.
Moon in Leo gets us into the heart of the action. It's time to let our light shine, express ourselves and appreciate other's unique stories. Celebrate, ritualize, dramatize. Share with ture Leonine generosity.
Leo by Day: Life becomes a performance art. We are more ready to reach out, be seen, and engage the comedy and tragedy of life, though we may have to turn down the melodrama.
The vibe is extroverted (egotism can hide quiet insecurity), warm-hearted romantic, and engaged.

What is a rising sign you ask? The rising sign or ascendant is the sign that was present on the horizon at the time of your birth. It sits similarly on your birth chart on this horizon line, or equatorial line in your chart on the left or east side of your chart.
Do calculate your rising sign, you'll need to know the exact time of your birth, once you know along with your geographic location, you can visit many sites and receive a free birth chart, here is one of our staff favorites.
Your sun sign represents your core personality, and the qualities of our outward shining self. Your moon sign reflects qualities of your inner core self, or emotional self.
Rising sign is your outlook on the world and first impression you give to others.
Rising sign also dictates where the Astrological Houses lay within your chart.
The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death. The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign
Leo rising feel a strong need to be seen, and be in the center of the spotlight! They take on leadership roles naturally though aren't always as diplomatic as their Virgo sisters. They are highly creative and imaginative, often revealing new ideas and perspectives that others missed.
The season of Leo tastes and feels of the heat that Leo's can bring in to any room when at their best.
The sun is high in the sky, Cat naps and cool drinks accompany many of our days. At night, we blossom after the heat recedes and gather by fire or moonlight to dance, tell stories or relish the cooler temperatures that night brings.
Many of our gardens are already planted and are left to grow with minimal tending to with lots of water. Flowers often come into a second bloom this time of year and animals are raising and birthing their young. The mood of the season is often playful, creative and exuberant.
While our last fire sign, rules the early morning as the sun starts to peak over the horizon, Leo rules the high point of the sun's daily transit. At midday we tend to care for ourselves, lunch time arrives of maybe it's time to take a "siesta".
This time of day is grounding in our bodies, nourishing our physical sense of self to get through the rest of the day. Being the time of day that Leo rules, it is also a highly creative time, a great time to of day to enjoy the company of others, dance in your kitchen or sit in the sunshine and write a poem to submit to We'Moon!
Leo rules the heart, solar plexus, spinal column and upper back. Cancer and Leo both meet in the chest, with Cancer as the pericardium (water layer) in which the heart is suspended and protected. Leo is our internal fire and flame, the heart and solar plexus carry our internal core and give blood to the rest of the body. The spinal column and upper back provide structure and strength to our skelton. Stand tall dear Leo's, and let your light shine from within!

Planets in Leo love to express themselves and often struggle to be seen and heard. These planets tend to be dramatic or hold strong pull within a natal chart and add to your creative impulses or dreams.
Example: If you're Mars in in Leo, the manner of which you take action will be creative, strong and in charge! You may have trouble letting others take the lead and want to feel your voice is heard loud and clear especially when decisions are being made.

“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
With heartfelt generosity we entertain children of our body and mind, including our inner child. (Fire)

The Sun represents oru soul purpose. It is what we are here on Earth to do or accomplish and it informs how we go about that task. It answers the age old question, "Why am I here?"

Inspire! You may have hidden your creative flow recently, feeling upstaged by hard work or potentially learning new skills or because of responsibilities to health.
Be honest about your creative talents, let go of what does not grow corn, and pursue those hidden sparks within.
