Welcome to Leo season: your horoscope for 2019

The Lion
July 23 - August 22

Believe it or not Leo, you are made from light. That is why you shine so much brighter than the rest. And it is why everyone tries to feed off of your magnetic energy.

Your warmth and generosity inspire even the most cynical of us to remain optimistic in times of difficulty. You are a beacon of hope, and my, do we adore you for it.

2019 is going to introduce you to your adult-self while reminding you never to neglect the child within. As Saturn, the great teacher, moves through your sixth house of work, you will be tested about your knowledge in your job. Whatever shortcuts or hacks that have gotten you this far are no longer going to be accepted. Saturn wants quality. Saturn wants integrity. Saturn wants discipline. And he won’t settle for anything less. So throw yourself into getting bigger, better, and stronger in your career. Bring your best self to work every day, and hold yourself accountable for the moments where you fall short. It’s not about being superhuman – it’s about being human enough to admit where you still need to improve.

Thankfully, Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, will be running through your fifth house of love, joy, and play. She will remind you that the world, even with a nine-to-five job, is still your playground. She will re-connect you to that gregarious and wild child that still lives and breathes deep within you. She will teach you to embrace the parts of life that are unstructured, irrational, and fucking magical. Throw some paint against the wall. Roll around in some mud. Get completely lost in the rain. 

2019 is a year of letting go of your inhibitions to unleash your massive creative potential. It wants you to forget about limitations and remember that anything, if done with passion, is possible. Whatever creative beast lies within you, give it the metaphorical blank canvas it needs to express itself. Be bold. Be brave. Be vulnerable. And from there you’ll find your bliss.
