Here's What Leo Season Has In Store, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Leo season (and Virgo season, which follows directly afterward) is my personal favorite time of year. I love the late-summer vibes that signify the peak of hot weather and the first harvests of autumn just around the corner. Leo season is a time to soak up the sun, the spotlight, and all the good vibes... so what will Leo season 2022 look like for you? Here's our guide to the coming month, and as always, remember to read your rising sign first!

Around the 4th of August, be mindful of a slight uptick in anxiety and restlessness. The next few weeks would be the perfect time to take a social media detox. Your day-to-day work tasks will probably require a lot of your attention, and you may find your brain buzzing. Be sure to disconnect at the end of the day so you can recharge appropriately.
On August 11th, celebrate the Full Moon in Aquarius with friends and your broader social network. You'll get extra energy to pursue necessary tasks around your neighborhood after Mars moves into Gemini on the 20th.
After August 4th, you may be more inclined to speak your truth and express yourself creatively. You'll also get some much-appreciated peace and contentment at home, which may be a relief if the earlier part of Leo season was a little rough.
By the time we reach the Full Moon in Aquarius on the 11th, you'll probably feel more prepared to take all that inner unpacking and use it to motivate you personally and professionally. The Full Moon will shine its light on how you can take all you've learned, and use it to become the best version of yourself.
After the 4th of August, your communication style may become a little more subdued than normal, but it's only because you've got a lot on your mind. Organize yourself emotionally so you can be clear on what it is you need and want, especially in your home and personal life.
On August 11th's Full Moon in Aquarius, focus on learning, growth, and expansion. Your ability to absorb big new ideas now will become especially useful after the 20th, when you get a serious energy boost around your own identity and how you present yourself to the world. As long as you've laid the groundwork by being open-minded and staying humble, you should be able to finish out Leo season on a strong note.

After the 4th, take what you've learned about yourself and begin to apply it out in the real world. Start small: The best way to build new habits and ultimately work toward living your best life is to start with your immediate circle first. Show up authentically with your friends, family, and community, and make sure your daily activities are acting in service of the values you identified. Don't worry, it won't be too difficult — you'll get a helping hand once Venus moves into this area of your life around the 11th.
The Full Moon, which also takes place on the 11th, is a good time for reflecting further on your deepest desires and inner workings. Take it easy, try a meditation or breathwork practice, and let yourself sit with your emotions. You'll want to keep practicing these mindful behaviors as you close out the season, especially after the 20th of August.
After the 4th, things might start feeling a little more comfortable for you. You'll likely be filled with ideas and thoughts that you want to communicate to the world, and you'll probably have no trouble communicating these thoughts to others.
The Full Moon in Aquarius on the 11th may shed light on a work opportunity or task that you get the chance to master. It's a great time to be productive and stay busy, especially because you'll get an energetically supercharged helping hand in career matters from Mars after the 20th.

Just be careful you don't totally overdo it and burn yourself out socially. After the 4th, you may be prone to anxiety and nervous system overload. Cultivate calm by finishing out each day with a cup of tea or a warm bath — and some much-needed solo time.
The Full Moon on August 11th is a great time to focus on YOU, allowing yourself to indulge in creative endeavors, fun hobbies, and sensual pleasures. Relax and enjoy!
But first, you'll start off the season with potentially unexpected surprises and changes. Take note around the 1st of August, when you might feel some major tension between your close relationships and your career. Shifts in one area or the other may impact your work-life balance, and you may feel a major tension between the two.
The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 11th will be a great time to stay home and relax. Get some much-needed self-care time in — you've more than earned it!
Your ideas might bubble over into the workplace or your social media feed after the 4th, and you don't see anything wrong with this — expressing yourself generally comes naturally to you, provided you've spent enough time organizing your thoughts. Make the case to your boss for a workplace logistical change, or fine-tune your social media messaging.
Around the time of the Full Moon on the 11th, it'll be a good time to share your voice with your community and help spotlight any issues you might be noticing.

As you get closer to the middle of August, you'll probably find yourself reflecting on your worldview. Did that sensual connection and deep emotional digging cause you to reexamine how you see the world? It's definitely possible.
Around the Full Moon in Aquarius, you'll take these themes forward into an examination of your personal values as well as your physical possessions. Check in with yourself to make sure your outer life is aligned with your inner one. This will be especially important after Mars moves into Gemini on the 20th, lest you forget to to take care of yourself amidst the business of everyday life — this is not a good time to procrastinate on self-care.
Around the 1st of August, expect shifts and surprises to surface, especially around your home life, intimate partnerships, and — potentially — your parents. If these shifts are leaving you feeling out-of-control, the key is to focus on communication and try to remain calm. This too shall pass.
If you have a partner, take this opportunity to cultivate even more intimacy. Open the channels of communication in the bedroom, especially around August 4th and beyond. This is a great season for your love life (whether platonic or romantic), and a great opportunity to truly share yourself with the ones you love.
The truth is, giving of ourselves to others needn't force us to abandon ourselves. The Full Moon on the 11th will have you reflecting on your own needs and identity, which is perfectly healthy and, indeed, supportive to your closest relationships. You can't pour from an empty cup, after all.
After the 4th, you'll have more incentive to speak up in your intimate relationships and make your needs known. Maybe it's a good time to gently tell your SO, business partner, or best friend that you need a little space for all the hectic goings-on of your life right now, and that they shouldn't take it personally.
The main thing to emphasize is the need for self-care. With so much going on, the lack of downtime might get to you, and could mean repercussions for your physical and mental health if you don't pay attention. If you haven't been taking time to unwind, it's going to catch up to you by the time of the Full Moon in Aquarius on the 11th, and could cause discord at home after the 20th. Avoid any potential problems by taking deep breaths, making time to relax, and prioritizing what needs to get done (rather than the expectations of others).
