There is no sign hungrier for big displays of romance, dramatic expressions of art, and heart-filled meaning. When Mars is in Leo, your instinct becomes geared towards color, music, and laughter. Whatever makes you feel good, Mars in Leo wants you to have it.
Because Mars enters Leo right around the beginning of summer, you're meant to enjoy the sunniest season of all to the fullest. Enjoy butterflies in your stomach, roller coaster rides, and opportunities to dance like nobody's watching. Art runs through your blood when Mars is in Leo and you have every reason to harness it.
Be Your Most Unapologetic And Expressive Self
All those social restraints holding you back from being your most expressive and authentic self? Mars in Leo wants to remove them. Mars in Leo wants you to be free to be exactly who you want to be. It's time to feel proud of who you are because there is no one else like you. Let confidence light a fire inside you that can't be put out and learn how to treat yourself like the love of your life.
When Mars is in Leo, don't think twice before getting up on stage and singing. Don't doubt yourself when you submit an entry in a competition. Refuse to buy into any insecure voices whispering in your ear. You deserve everything you want. You just have to go after it.
Don't Confuse Arrogance With Confidence
The downside of Mars in Leo is that it's very easy to let your ego take over and convince yourself you're just being confident. Remember, arrogance is thinking you're better than everyone else, but that's now how Leo shines brightest. Leo believes in confidence, which is accepting yourself for who you are and treating yourself with respect. A truly confident person aims to lift people up, not tear others down. Every zodiac sign has a positive side and a negative side, and when Leo is functioning poorly, it tends to manifest as self-centeredness and elitism.
Be mindful of any selfish or overly competitive energy you may be subconsciously radiating. Instead, share the wealth. There's room for everyone at the finish line.
