Welcome to Leo season, Blo Babes. We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off our feline-themed month than with Beyonce’s Lion King debut. We also have some good news: Mercury is finally out of retrograde so you can all breathe a collective sigh of relief (go on, we’ll wait). Ok, now that that’s out of the way let’s get right into the horoscopes.
LEO July 23 – August 22
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEOS! It’s finally your time, and I know you guys will savour this month more than anyone else. You’ll have luck in the professional sphere in the first half of the month, so shoot your shot when asking for that raise or title change. Be careful when it comes to love—you’ll be tempted to be overly critical this month but remember that not everyone has your confidence. Ok, enough talk, it’s time to party like it’s 1999!
VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Virgos, prepare yourselves. Your season is right around the corner, but don’t go retiring the shorts and sandals just yet. The stars are predicting a steamy month ahead, so set up some dates in your near future—you’ve got nothing to lose. There’s also going to be some developments on the home front but don’t worry, you aren’t being renovicted. There might be a new roommate in your future, or perhaps a furry friend added to the family. Prepare for this change by cleansing the space (I know I don’t have to tell you guys twice).
LIBRA September 23 – October 23
How are you feeling, Libras? This will be a transitional month for you. It’s time to think about what you really want, and voice it, whatever it may be. Communication can be hard for you, especially when you’re worried about others’ feelings, but I promise you they can handle it. Be honest and your requests will be thoughtfully heard. Now that we have the serious stuff out of the way, be a little frivolous with your money this month, the planets are in your favour.
SCORPIO October 24 – November 22
Hello my eight legged friends! This month is all about giving some attention to your relationships. We all get busy and matters of the heart (romantic AND platonic) fall to the wayside, but it’s time to nurture those connections. No one knows better than you how passionate you can be, so it’s time to show your loved ones a little bit of that intensity you’re so well known for. Go over the top, plan a grand gesture, but don’t show up at people’s doors unannounced—that’s only cute in John Hughes movies.
SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 21
Hi Sags! Lady luck is on your side this month, and opportunities will pile up in your lap. Before you say yes to everything, take stock of your energy levels—you’re prone to burn out, and over committing will get you a one way ticket to Exhaustion Town, population: you. Uranus in retrograde will reveal some difficult truths towards the end of the month, probably around something that’s been bothering you for a while. Take this revelation as a relief that you finally know what’s going on.
CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Capricorns, how are ya?! Your creative juices are overflowing this month—put them to good use before they make a mess! Dust off your acrylic paints, break out your pastels and set up that easel in the back of your closet. Focus on you, your time and your interests – it’s Leo season after all! Being a little selfish is important when you always put everyone else first.
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Hi Aquarius boos! You’re going into the month will a clear head and a long to-do list after last month’s eclipse and retrograde shenanigans. A full moon on the 15th will bring more clarity, and with that you might feel the need to purge things that are no longer serving you. Flaky friends, crops tops you no longer wear, that type of thing. You’ll feel lighter and more like yourself once you get rid of whatever’s holding you down.
PISCES February 19 – March 20
Water babies, how have you been? Have you felt kind of bogged down and foggy all summer? Well the tides are a-changing and good news is on its way for your love life and for those goals you’ve been keeping hidden away in a special place. It’s time to let them out into the world and see what the universe comes back with. The new moon in Virgo at the end of the month will mark a moment of revelation for your professional life, most likely to do with an ongoing project.
ARIES March 21 – April 19
Hey there Aries! This month is all about adventure for you. Throw caution to the wind! Play hooky! Throw some hot dogs in the cooler and take a road trip, or get three ice cream cones just for yourself. This is your spontaneous experience and we’re just along for the ride. The full moon will put the brakes on the fun train for a little while as you re-examine friends, partners, and career goals. Think of this as a little self check-in. All in all, you’ll be entering fall with everything you need.
TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Taurus, how the heck are you! This month is very exciting for you because it’s August (arguably the Sunday of months) and you don’t have to feel bad about nesting in preparation for (arguably the best month of the year) September. Slip on your silk robe, do a hair mask and just relax. Focus your energy on work this month—it’s ok to let social obligations take a backseat sometimes. You’ll be going into fall recharged and with extra-soft tresses.
GEMINI May 21 – June 21
Hello my twin star children! Retrograde hit you hard last month, I know, but things are looking up. This month is all about tying up lose ends for you. The planets are on your side so be honest about anything you’ve been holding in for a while—everything will turn out in your favour. You’ll also get the urge to escape this month, so a book a trip for the fall. Maybe get an extra ticket, the stars are predicting very good luck in love for the last two weeks of the month.
CANCER June 22 – July 22
Hey there Cancers. Leo season is all about basking in life’s little luxuries for you. Get a blow out, buy a silk pillowcase and splurge on a Whole Foods grocery haul. Your loved ones will also be extra generous with their attention this month, so soak it up and give your relationships the time they need. The full moon will bring revelations that will make you question what you once believed to be absolute truth—spooky, I know.
