It’s time to dry those Cancer season tears and let hot girl summer begin — because Leo season 2021 kicks off on July 22, and it’s here to heat things up and bring our passions to the forefront. Leo season always hits right smack in the middle of the summer, and its fiery and fun-loving energy will majorly boost our confidence levels and inspire us to be bolder about what we want. This month’s vibes feel like a cosmic ray of sunshine beaming down on us, and knowing exactly how Leo season 2021 will affect your zodiac sign can help you make the most of the magic.

Leo is the zodiac sign ruled by the sun itself, so Leo season is like a glitzy and glamorous homecoming for our solar system’s reigning star — which brings out the star power in all of us, too. Prepare to unleash your inner diva and embrace some serious main-character-energy in all areas of your life. We’re being astrologically blessed with extra courage, creativity, and charisma all season long, so don’t be afraid to claim your rightful place at center stage and let your passions shine. Think of it as a cosmic summer glow-up.

Leo zodiac energy has a reputation for being extra, and this season lives up to the hype — as Leo season 2021 is being bookended by not one but two powerful full moons. There’s typically only one new and full moon per zodiac sign season, so having an extra one is a rare and special occurrence that gives us double the opportunity to create some Leonian lunar magic and let our authenticity shine. The full moon on July 23 kicks off the season with sparkle, while the full moon on August 22 (which peaks during final hours of Leo season) acts as an emotionally-charged closing act.

Ready to embrace some fiery Leo fun? Let your Leo season 2021 horoscope be your guide to these cosmic vibes.
