What You Need to Know about Leo Season in August 2023

Leo season is fiery and fearless.

We’re finally out of the emotional waters of Cancer season and ready to roar like never before. We all know Leos put the “hot” in hot girl summer, but what’s summer without a little dishy drama? The sun entered Leo on July 22nd, also marking the start of Venus Retrograde. With the sun burning in its ruling sign, look forward to glitz, glam, confidence, and a glass-half-full mentality.

With the planet of love & romance moving backward for the next six weeks, expect to unpack some past relationship baggage, reconsider your romantic relationships, and determine what (or who) is worth your *precious* time (and what isn’t).

What August’s Horoscope Means for *You*

See what this season has in store for your sign (don’t forget your rising sign, too!).

Aries (March 20-April 19)

It’s main character season, Aries. Because Leo season highlights your sign’s romance, creativity, and play sectors, expect your passion for the arts (and pleasure) to be ignited this month. This burst of fiery energy forces you to press pause on your daily routine and make time for more creative endeavors. 

Less work, more play! This month, the key is to focus on the little things that make you happy.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Home is where the heart is this month, Taurus. With Venus (your ruling planet) in retrograde this month, a blast from the past may be in order. Spend time with those who don’t drain your social battery, like close friends and family. Tend to your outdoor witchy garden, walk down memory lane with those closest to you, and definitely don’t feel bad about letting yourself unwind. Remember that sometimes it’s okay to do nothing!

This month, your mind, body, and spirit will benefit from some serious restoration.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The tea is piping hot this month, Gemini, and you can’t wait to spill it. We all love a little gossip now and then, but you especially. With Leo season (hellooo, self-affirmation!) moving through your house of information, you’ve never felt more confident in your voice. There’s nothing you enjoy more than being a vessel for the latest hot gossip, and dishing with your coworkers or commanding the party with your dazzling storytelling skills comes even more naturally this month.

You’ve got a lot to say, and we’re here for it!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Still recovering from your birthday, Cancer? Us too. While Leo season may provide a surge of passionate energy for the collective, this month prompts you to slow down and take the backseat. With your solar cycle complete, it’s time to restore and re-energize. However, the sun moving through your financial sector could mean a second look at finances or even a belated b-day gift!

It’s all about stability and comfort this month, and you may find your inner crab retreating into their shell.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

We’re rolling out the red carpet, Leo. There’s just no hiding your glow this month! With the sun in its home sign and passionate Mars and Venus transiting in bold Leo, your inner Queen B energy is totally fired up. Your creative energy flows flawlessly this month, and no one can resist your magical and magnetic charisma (Could they ever?).

With temperatures soaring, steamy summer flings are in session and you are the teacher. BTW Happy Birthday, you lion-hearted cuties!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a reminder to trust your gut, Virgo. Leo season taps into your inner spirituality, strengthening your intuition and forcing you to look inward. Because the sun is moving through your sign’s dream and subconscious sectors, you’re feeling meditative and mindful. Take a closer look at your dreams this month. They could be trying to tell you something.

Hot girl summer? More like spiritual girl summer. You’re in tune with your inner voice more than ever right now. This month, your BFFs are full moon rituals, meditative practices, and crystal cheat sheets.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your social calendar is bursting this month, Libra. The beaming sun highlights your sign’s social and relationship sectors, and your inner social butterfly is ready to flawlessly flutter through any b-day party, event, or big meeting. It’s an excellent time for networking. Whether reconnecting with old friends, hosting a full moon party, or attending an event, your main character energy shines through.

Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and meet new people! Your outgoing nature is contagious this month.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s time to step into your professional power, Scorpio, especially at work or in the public sector. This season activates your wants and needs surrounding your career, and we all know you’ve been on top of your game, so now it’s time to stake your claim. You work hard and deserve some serious recognition! Shoot your shot for that senior title, pitch your latest project, or take over your company’s major client.

Networking is essential this month. You’ll want as many people in your corner as you can get!

Sagittarius (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your adventurous archer is intrigued this month, Sagittarius. Leo season sparks your house of travel and higher learning, so get ready to pack your bags and explore the world. Your usual routine isn’t doing it for you this month, and you’ve convinced yourself you need a life-altering vacay abroad (we support it!). You’re saying yes to any new opportunities, networking with spiritual mentors, and putting your phone on DND.

Leo season was practically made for your adventurous soul, Sag. Take full advantage!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Leo season encourages you to heal some inner wounds, Capricorn. With the sun making its way through your house of intimacy and transformation, some spiritual happenings are on the horizon. This month, you’re forced to face past traumas, embrace your inner child, and allow yourself to be vulnerable. You’ve been so hard at work that you may have forgotten to engage in a little TLC.

Opening up to a loved one and stepping out of your emotional comfort zone isn’t so bad this month. You got this!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Let’s talk about relationships, baby. This month is centered around your one-on-one connections in romance, friendships, and work relationships. The sun is passing through your partnership sector, meaning that you *finally* have the sudden urge to fill your social cal (a rarity) and don’t mind leaning on others for support.

With the August full moon in your sign, be open to any and all possibilities (+ don’t forget your full moon rituals!).

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re on top of your self-care game this month, Pisces. Leo season gives you the drive to book those appointments, check out that new spa, and even get up early for a pre-work stroll on the beach. You’re finding the perfect balance this Leo season between being productive, prioritizing yourself, and having some summer fun.

We all should aspire to be this excited about our wellness routine! Embrace it, Pisces.

Leo season is always 2x the fun! And you’ll be center stage all month long! Check out The Inspo Spot for more holistic and healing goodies. Don’t forget to come back next month and see what the stars have in store for September.
