Justice: And all was well in the world. Leo, you have been faced with inner battles that have caused you to suffer for far too long. These may have been habits of running, hyper-independence, or other defense mechanisms that arose from abandonment wounds. You are finally in a space in your life where you’re willing to change that behavior, even if it scares the living hell out of you.
You have people from your past that still have an emotional or mental grip on you, and that is being released this month if you’re willing to put boundaries in place. It’s okay to love your ex (lover or friend) as a person from afar, but being so close with them may cause unrecognized problems. If you have no intention of resolving the problems you have with people, you need to let them go. I also sense family issues bubbling to the surface; speak your truth and know that you have no obligation to anyone regardless of who they are. If someone weighs heavily on your psyche, it’s time to give your psyche a break by removing this dead weight. All in due time, the scales will balance, dear Leo.
Eight of Swords: Decisions and overthinking, and decisions and overthinking. What a cycle, my lions! It’s time for you to free yourself from the mental prison that has you trapped in overreacting, overanalyzing, and expending all of that bright energy on the wrong thoughts. If you’ve been focusing on playing the cat-and-mouse game with potential lovers, let yourself fall into a fully surrendered state. You don’t need to chase when you simply learn how to attract. Give yourself permission to rest your body, mind, and spirit in the month of August. For some of you, this overthinking is a defense mechanism so you don’t have to deal with the root of your pain. Spirit is warning you that you can’t ignore the parts of your past that have caused you pain much longer. Take time to relieve yourself from your friend groups, social circles, and daily routines, and try to find a sense of inner peace this month. Only when you allow your pain to come to the surface can you fully feel, heal, and integrate the lesson so it no longer dictates your life and actions going forward.
You are about to level up in a big way, and spirit wants to make sure that you don’t sabotage the opportunity with your autopilot behaviors. You do not need to try and impress other people; your guides are asking for you to be more authentic and less concerned about how other people view you. Your life path is going to be quite different and untraditional, so getting the masses to approve of you and how you live is in direct opposition to your destined path. Let life flow, let your expectations go, and raise your standards. You are not meant to settle for instant pleasures, you are meant to dedicate to opportunities that will bring you life-long happiness. Rest your mind, and rest assured that you are moving in the right direction. Seeds grow in the darkness.
Queen of Pentacles: Ah, Leo. July is going to be filled with new opportunities that nourish you from a soul level. You may be receiving financial assistance or expansion this month as the earthly mother of the Tarot predicts what’s in store for you. It’s advised that you start to come to terms with what (and who) you want this month, and get serious about how to bring your dream life into a state of reality. You are a talented and sought-after presence, Leo…but you already knew that. Now is the time to walk your talk, and start to show up as the person you know you’re capable of being. That will take dedication. Do not run away from the things that you want; run toward them. Or better yet, run alongside them and continue to grow and expand with the person, project, or job that you’ve got your eye on.
Do not be afraid to leave old habits in the past. Change will be required this month to make the most out of who you are becoming. Sometimes the most powerful form of trust in the Universal plan is being willing to change. Root down firmly into the aspects of your life that are working, and remember that there’s a difference between what feels right and what’s actually right for you. Take the higher, healthier, path and you will be greatly rewarded for years to come. Commitment does not mean that you lose your freedom; it reaffirms that you’re free to make (and stick to) your choices. You’ve got this, my lion!
The Moon: My lions and lionesses, June is going to require you to let go of your expectations of those around you. There are some people that you’re holding to an unrealistically high standard, yet not holding yourself to the same. If you’re unable to forgive, accept, and embrace others for who they truly are, it may be a sign that you are unable to fully love and accept yourself at this time. If you catch yourself assuming that someone will let you down, or react in a negative way, your spirit guides are asking you to let go of these assumptions and allow others to truly show up in devotion for you and your connection. Sometimes people have difficulty expressing themselves in a way that will resonate with you, and most of the time it’s due to feeling intimidated by you. Let yourself be pleasantly surprised by the ones you hold closest to your heart when you give them the safety and space to show up for you.
It is also noted here for you to stay away from gossip or negative talk this month, as it may come back to bite you later on. Be honest and forthcoming, especially with close friends and lovers. If you’re not the one keeping secrets, someone else may be—and this seems to be relating to feelings of love. A gentle reminder: We never know how long we have, so don’t let yourself end up wondering “what if” about this connection. Trust that you are safe and supported, and that your love will be well-received if you decide to be brave and express yourself. Use your intuition this month, and take a chance, my bold, beautiful Leo.
Death: The fog is clearing, dear Leo. Whether you’ve been emotionally or physically exhausted lately, it seems that the Universe has tried to get you to acknowledge that an old cycle is coming to a close in one way or another. If you’ve struggled to see clearly how to move forward, let that clarity be gifted to you in May as the world (both internally and externally) begins to bloom. You’ve been tested with some of your deepest and darkest lessons this year, and you’re about to come out victoriously. However, you can’t keep blaming others for your inconsistencies. You have a tendency to self-sabotage when you’re getting close to success, growth, or true love. Let me ask you: When was the last time you let someone see your truth? Drop the pain and hardships from your past. They do not define you. Your truth is the purity and authenticity lying underneath everything that has happened to you.
If you’ve felt loss or stagnation in your finances, expect a turnaround in May. However, you’ll have to be willing to think outside of the box in order to hit your next jackpot. Spirit is nudging you to “go your own way” and do something a bit risky in order to be handsomely rewarded. If you’ve been contemplating whether or not to share more of yourself (or your work) with others, take this as a sign to say yes. Some of you may be physically moving in the month of May, and there will be many opportunities opening up for you on the other side of this relocation. Trust your gut, and go with the ever-changing flow of life. Do not fight the current any longer, Leo!
Nine of Pentacles: Well, well, well Leo…. It seems that your hard work is paying off in a big way in April. Your career path has been anything but conventional; with the new moon on April 11, you’ll be feeling ready to call in exactly what you want for an outcome to your choices and decisions. It feels as if there are a few holes in the bottom of your boat when it comes to finances, and you’ll be better off when you let go of those unnecessary subscriptions, recurring charges, or financially dependent friends or family members. Start to see that you don’t need to make more, you just have to start spending less! Set boundaries around your time, money, and energy this month, and watch the way your life starts to change for the better.
You are on a path that most may not understand, but the point of life isn’t to be understood by everyone—it’s to fully understand and express yourself. For some, I’m seeing you embracing singledom. Letting go of the idea that you need to bounce from one relationship to the next in order to feel fulfilled will set you free. This newfound embrace of solitude and self-love is going to attract the right person at the right time, but don’t rush this chapter of your story. Instead, find more ways to be present to your life and truly listen to your inner voice before they arrive.
Three of Swords: A lion with the heart of a lamb. It seems you’re feeling a deep sense of loss and pain that’s keeping your life at a standstill. Your guides are asking you to alchemize the pain, overwhelming feelings, or frustration that’s been present into something beautiful. You’re being called toward vulnerability—the situation has to be worked through; it cannot be avoided. Even if you leave this person, job, or scenario, the same lesson will crop up later on for you.
Just because something is unfamiliar or uncomfortable does not mean that it’s wrong for you. If you’ve been beating yourself up about the way that a situation transpired recently, March will be the month to right your wrongs. Don’t be afraid to take accountability, or hold space for hard conversations. You will be met with kindness and love from those you’re afraid to approach. Take a deep breath, stand up tall, and walk toward this new chapter with confidence. You’re breaking age-old cycles in the here and now.
Four of Swords: This month you’re being called to put old behaviors to rest. It seems like the recent past has caused emotions to flare and tensions to rise. Certain people and situations are triggering you more than you’d like to admit, Leo. Not to fret. February will be a powerful time for you to start taking accountability and finally freeing yourself from this pattern. If you’ve been battling with deep-seated anger or fear lately, know that you are about to pass this seemingly endless test. Rise up apologize for what you said or did while you were overwhelmed. Those closest to you will be understanding—that is, if you’re willing to be truly vulnerable.
For some of you this is a sign to be more honest about your intentions. It seems that you’ve started to drift away from your integrity in recent weeks, and this is your sign to come back to your truth. You don’t need to distract yourself with social media, over-working, poor dating habits, or Netflix binges. Take some time to rest and unplug—your spirit will thank you.
Six of Cups: You are headed into a new year filled with bliss and play, my lovely Leo! January is all about letting the good times flow and reminding yourself that nothing is “too good to be true”—you deserve the happiness that’s coming your way.
A vacation or staycation with a lover may be what’s providing you with this relaxed energy, or simply letting go of responsibilities and biting off more than one lion can rightfully chew. Think about the most carefree part of your life. What holds you back from that feeling now? Whatever the answer, let it go and make room for more ease.
