Leo Sun & Rising — Monthly Horoscope & Sign Description

Leo Monthly Horoscope for June 2020

leo-2020

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — If life is presenting you with a limit, study the situation and you will see the opportunity. This is not merely a “if you have lemons, make lemonade” scenario. Rather, there is a missing piece available, which has the potential to connect you to the world in a new way. The potential opens up briefly as Saturn goes stationary-retrograde in your opposite sign Aquarius. You might even miss it, though there is still something to be gained from a review. Learn everything you can, and plan for the next Saturn-related opening, which will be in December. This happens on an even greater scale, just once, hence the need for a thorough and creative review.

Until then, you have a spiritual imperative to make your work as meaningful as possible. Do this by choosing what is the greatest value, and when you don’t have that option, size up what you’re doing and exploit its potential for learning, growth or service. Take this attitude and you will make significant discoveries that inform not just what you do, but also the purpose of your life.

The breakthroughs are represented by an ongoing series of conjunctions between Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, the next of which are June 30 and Nov. 12. Let’s use nursing as a metaphor. This aspect describes using what you learn not just to help a few individuals get well, but rather to create a breakthrough in your profession that benefits people for many years to come.

All of these themes are highlighted by the movement of Mars through Aries, which describes you as restless and in the mood for some quest or adventure. Though your options may be limited in certain ways, your potential for self-development is wide open, and you are being called into an ever more humane worldview. Let that inform every choice you make, and may it infuse everything you touch.

Sign Description for Leo

(July 22-Aug. 23) — Leo is one of the most misunderstood signs. But it’s easier to understand if you remember that while the other signs are ruled by a planet that orbits the Sun, Leo is ruled by the thing at the center of our solar system, around which all the other planets orbit (some 500,000 now known).

So while Leo has the tendency to be at the center of it all, there is a deep responsibility that comes with having this as your Sun sign or ascendant. You’re likely to feel this all the time, and it manifests as a selfless and hard-working quality. Leo is associated with the metal gold — the reference standard for all value. You can be generous with others and frugal with yourself; you hold yourself to a high standard and often strive for a kind of perfection that is impossible to attain.

The less well-adapted (or insecure) natives of Leo can be incredibly egocentric and bossy, which can give the rest a bad name; for the most part those born under this sign emphasize leadership and responsibility rather than a privilege. You’re strongly drawn to group activities and organizations, and you have the self-confidence and presence of mind to play a useful role in any such activity.

You need to be visible, and you also need a steady career that is in tune with your deepest values. If you want to understand yourself, study the house position and the aspects to your Sun, for which you will need your whole natal chart.

More than any other sign, the house position of the Sun is vital to understand with Leo. It will tell you the ways you’re most naturally inclined to express yourself. Your rising sign will tell you a lot. That said, as a Leo you want to be seen, known and you need to find roles in life that give you a bit of visibility and put you in a position to be appreciated.

It’s unbecoming of your regal nature to expect adulation, however. You’re only as important as the role you play in the lives of the people around you, and it’s necessary to take a big view of what that means. Your relationships are with humanity first and individual humans second. You understand how important it is to see humanity as a collective entity, and you can actually grasp that idea.

Make sure everyone you care about knows how deeply you really feel about them. Health-wise you must take care of your heart. Leo rules the heart, but it requires special care. Leo is a fire sign, and is also known as a fixed sign, coming at the peak (center month) of its season.
