SYMBOL: THE LION
RULING PLANET: SUN
HOUSE: FIFTH HOUSE OF PLEASURE + SELF-EXPRESSION
La Luna is spotlighting, spotlight-loving Leo today and, in true Leo fashion, ya’ll better prepare yourself to be dazzled. Sun-rule Leo reminds us to make ourselves the center of our own universe and prioritize our dreams and desires. Setting intentions around love, creativity, and self-expression is the move. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and, therefore, starting new projects or setting new goals. Fire sign Leo is gonna crank up the heat and help build your confidence and courage in going after exactly what you want.
However, Leo’s shadow side can be dramatic and egotistical, so take this as your friendly reminder to check yourself before you wreck yourself. Don’t let this Leo-fueled need to shine blind you on your passion-led path. The Lion doesn’t need anyone else to tell them that they rule supreme! So stand supremely in your unique self—flaws and all!

Leo New Moon Ritual:
Before going to bed, gather and cleanse your crystals, placing them near a window to charge under the Leo New Moon’s energy. Center your thoughts around yourself (posi-vibes only!). Now, recite aloud some positive affirmation about what a badass you are (GO BIG, this is for YOU and no one else!). Empower yourself with each affirmation and celebrate yourself, where you are now, and where you are going. Keep your charged crystals with you as you to fan that spark inside of you into a wild fire!

- Take YOURSELF out on a date! Romanticize ya damn self. Cuz you worth it!
- Channel your creativity! Try a new creative hobby or re-visit an old favorite. Embrace whatever beauty comes out of it!
