Your relationships will get you far, Leo. It may feel difficult to maintain close friendships, especially because people can fall jealous of you when you take center stage. Your inner circle is privileged to have VIP access to your life experiences. Be patient with those you hold dear, they do not have the same access to opportunity as you do. Keep your eyes open and be willing to learn about the unique stories and narratives that those around you must share. As you develop a deeper understanding of why your close friends are the way they are, you can better understand how to utilize your unique assets to their advantage. Your light will shine brighter when joined by other stars—do not mistake a united front as a distraction from your glow.
Spend this year identifying aspects of your personality that you wish to release or develop. Treat yourself with compassion during this period of transformation. This year will be met with moments that can encourage feelings of self-pity and it is important that you not fall into traps of martyrdom.
Breathe through your moments of frustration and accompany each breath with a mantra. Having a clear sense of what you want and the willingness to integrate it into your daily life will help you actualize your desires.

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.
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 pure Leonine generosity.
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
Those of us with a Leo Rising Sign 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?"
Anything is possible with boldness, diligence, humility and joy. This year invites and awakens all of this for you.
If you will embrace that which whispers up from the depths, allow it its full weight, and enrich it with your playfulness, you will be able to bring an honesty and aliveness to the day-to-day work of healing.
The beginning and end of the year are both pressure cookers for how we bring our healing and our fight for freedom into a livable, joyfully, sustainable reality.
The sum of these elements make up your health. The last few years have revealed your limits. This is valuable information. We can grow and work more freely and fully when we work within them.
The possibilities for career growth and abundance in your public roles are huge, but need to respect your limits and the truths of your body.
Without doing the work in the day to day and in your most intimate relationships, you will get stretched thin, pulled out of yourself, and compromise the authenticity of what you offer the world. Feed your radiance from the inside.
Give it rich, dark soil to grow from, and don’t ask it for more than it truly wants to give.

As Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Pisces, exact in April, echoing throughout 2022, they challenge us to use our sensitivity, vision, and imagination to open a visionary portal, while at the same time staying grounded enough to not get lost, to stay present and use this vision wisely.
Leo: You may draw in real magical moments this year; listen for guidance from the spirits, the earth beneath and crystals within. Just remember that because a spirit is a non-corporeal, doesn't necessarily mean it is wise; always think for yourself.
With an open mind, open heart, and clean boundaries you prepare for new exploration in 2023.
