How Brightly Do You Shine?

August is the month for the astrological sign of Leo. The symbol for Leo is actually a script form of the Greek letter “lambda,” the first letter of the Greek word leon, which means “lion.”

Lions represent Leo appropriately, as lions consider themselves the king of the jungle, the king of the Universe, even. Like lions, Leo tends to be radiant beings of strength and confidence. This is the perfect time to let your light shine, whether you're a Leo or not.

Of all the signs in the Zodiac, Leo tends to enjoy the limelight more than all the other signs. They are considered warm, action-oriented and driven by the desire for admiration. It is their innate sense of power that inspires them to get things done. With an air of royalty about them, many make career ventures into the performing arts. Madonna is the epitome of an actualized Leo, exuding confidence, brilliance, and show-womanship over the span of 30+ years as an entertainer.

The tail end of summer is upon us. The influence of the sun in Leo tends to encourage all of us to express ourselves in a more outward manner, so take advantage of this time to have a more extroverted focus. Enjoy the last, glorious days of summer. Get out there and have fun! Go swimming. Go to the beach. Dance under the stars. Sing at a karaoke night. Make new friends! Be adventurous and live life with zest!

Leo energy is about confidence, self-respect, and outer brilliance. Leo is naturally generous, loyal, radiant, and creative. Respect your value and express your creativity over the next few weeks.

Now is the time to let your light shine and share your beautiful light with others! Express your love to those you care about. Invite a new friend to a weekend barbecue or for a night out on the town.
