If you’ve had a tiff with your bestie, caught your deadshit ex stalking your Insta Stories or had your phone go haywire, chances are you’ve already been affected by the dreaded Mercury Retrograde.

But never fear, my troubled friend, ‘coz Leo season is here to pull you out of the abyss of death, otherwise known as Mercury Retrograde.

From July 23rd to August 23rd, the sun will be kicking it in the sign of the lion and while this is a time to celebrate the birthdays of people during this transit, Leo’s bountiful energy will affect us all and oh my goddess, what a treat!

As anyone with a Leo mate will know, those folks are all about having a good time, a welcome change from Cancer season which was an emotionally draining sobfest where all you wanted to do was hibernate and be alone with your feelings.

Now, Leo season will make you want to be with the people you love and let the good times roll so expect a bunch of FB invites to lit events and the beauty of Leo season’s energy is that you’ll inhabit the confidence of the lion so you’ll actually want to get out there and show the world what a bawss you are.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be an emotionless vixen, however. Leo season is all about saying shit how it is and putting it all out there in the interest of squashing the BS and evolving your relationships with the people around you.

If this means you cut off a few toxic friendships who can’t handle that, so be it.

If this means you finally slide into the guy / girl you’ve been thirsting after’s DMs, so be it.

Let the brave spirit of the lion inhabit you and compel you to go out and DO SHIT without fear of consequences.

Leave that crap in Cancer season.

It’s also a time to tap into your creativity and put any side hustles, business ventures or arty projects into motion.

Put pen to paper on that novel you’ve always wanted to write, buy some new art supplies and see what you come up with or do something as simple as trying a new Instagram aesthetic.

The biggest takeaway from Leo season is putting plans into action that’ll make you happy. Be selfless for a moment and focus on Y-O-U.

This doesn’t mean that you’ll totally be immune to Mercury Retrograde, of course, so do be careful.

All I’m saying is, if anything can save us from this instalment of hell on earth, it’s Leo season!
