I hope you’re ready for a major confidence boost, because Leo season’s here, and there’s nothing subtle about it. Everyone’s being reminded of their inner strength in a way that’s bold and unapologetic, especially as the sun and moon gear up for this month’s new moon. Leo energy is all about embracing who you are, and allowing your vibrant energy to take up as much space as it needs without feeling guilty about it. There’s no room for self-doubt — it’s time for you to boldly affirm who you are. Now is the time for everyone to shine, especially if you’re a fixed sign during the new moon in Leo.

Taking place in a fire sign, the July 28 new moon is bringing new beginnings to how you go about expressing yourself. Since Leo is a fixed sign, it’s a reminder that your truest sense of self doesn’t change too much, so you ultimately know who you are and how to honor that in the best way possible. Feeling confident enough to share it with others unapologetically, however, is where the challenge can arise. As the sign ruled by the sun, Leo energy is all about being acknowledged and appreciated for exactly who you are, regardless of how bothered others may be by your light, or how loud your expression tends to be. This new moon is encouraging you to step into your personal limelight, because if you don’t, then who will? Since the sun is in the sign of its domicile, it’ll be easier to understand what best aligns with your sense of self and what doesn’t.
