July 23 – August 22
Sun? Is that you? Shining so bright over there? Sorry, we couldn’t help but look at you. You are beautiful. You are majestic. You are regal. And you know it.
There is nothing muted about you – you are a lover of colour, drama and excess. You understand and accept that you are going to be noticed. You know how to embrace the limelight. But you also know how to share it.
You are enormously generous. Generous with your words. With your actions. And with your limitless love. You like to rule your kingdom charitably.
You are your best when you can be a positive beacon of hope for others. You are your worst when pressures and doubts get the best of you. Even a Lion has its bad days. Even a Lion has its fears. This past year has knocked you down a few pegs to show you that you are not invincible.
Luckily, 2018 is going to feel a bit lighter. A bit clearer. It is going to let you shine at your brightest, the way you were intended to. You are going to get back in touch with your inner power. My, this is a force to be reckoned with. You will win people over. Land that job interview. Get that promotion. Jupiter is going to make sure that the shadows you have been standing in will clear.
But make sure to stay humble. The key to mastering this year is not letting the acknowledgment get to your head. Don’t let your ego muddy the waters. Or get swept up in the politics. Success can be isolating when we lose touch with ourselves. It can be isolating when we become unrecognisable to our loved ones. Use your closest friends and family to stay in touch with who you really are.
Remember you are here to share your good fortune. You are here for the good of your kingdom. You are part of something larger than yourself. Give generously. Give silently. Give selflessly. Like a beam of light across the night sky. Shine on my friend.
