We are blessed with a second new moon this July, this one rising under the sign of Leo. Sometimes love can be like a second new moon in a month—a little unusual, but perfectly natural. We are living in times where people are beginning to recognize that love can look different from what many of us were raised to expect. Some people just do better when they make room for a definition of love that encompasses a multiplicity of situations as well as partners. You wouldn’t expect a fish to do as well on land as they do in the water, so why should we force ourselves to conform to an ideal that does not reflect who we are?
Leo is a sign that knows the power of owning one’s own truth and stepping out confidently with it. Its energy radiates with a healthy joy that comes from a self-love strong enough to be honest about what it needs. Leo doesn’t worry about living according to anyone’s expectations other than itself.
