What I love about the Sun in Leo is how it seems to make everyone more playful, creative and romantic — and we also get a burst of social energy that takes things up a notch.
It’s perfect timing, as we’re in the heat of summer and most of my friends and family are out playing in the sunshine, anyhow.
The Sun was previously in slow, sentimental Cancer, which kept many of us snuggled up close to home. So now this energy is just what we need to get out and make the most of all those barbecues, family reunions, company picnics and summer vacation travels.
As for me, I’m not quite as animated as I usually am this time of year, but it’s likely because Mercury Retrograde is holding me back. As a Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury, I tend to feel’s Mercury’s backward slide more than others. It turns me inward and I get too caught up in my own thoughts.
So, unfortunately, my energy is a little lower than I’d like, and I expect it will be until Mercury goes direct on August 8. But at least now that the Sun is in Leo I’ll get a little pick me up from the big cat known for turning yawns into roars.
