Your Monthly Horoscope

Leo season invites you to be bold and embrace your creative side. Find out what more this month has in store.

Cancer season went by in a flash. Now it's time for Leo to shine.

To celebrate, today we're introducing Luminous Leo. The limited-edition collection includes 5 all-new tattoos inspired by the zodiac's most confident and charismatic sign.

Designed by Brooklyn-based tattoo artist Mira Mariah (aka @girlknewyork), these pieces are part of our ongoing Astrology Series. We release new tattoos each zodiac season and pair them with a horoscope written by our resident astrologer, Rasheem.

Hello beautiful people! Welcome to the Lion's Den. The Sun has finally made its way back to Leo, which will have a tremendous impact on all of us. As you may know, the Sun represents our consciousness and the core of our personality. While the planet is in Leo, it invites us to express our most authentic selves. This month is a time meant for genuine play, fun, and self-exploration.

This season also has surprises in store and lessons to teach us. We kick things off with a Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23, which is here to illuminate the contrast between our need to fit in and our desire to separate ourselves from others and explore our individuality. This Leo-Aquarius polarity will help us find ways to channel our creative energy into relevant humanitarian or social causes. It's also linked to the Aquarius New Moon from February and will bring any concerns that emerged then to completion. 

Jupiter is in a retrograde period right now. It will transit into Aquarius on July 28, which calls us back to the Great Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction from December 2020. Any outstanding issues from that time will reappear, and we won't be able to move forward until we take care of that unfinished business. But once that's behind us, Jupiter in Aquarius will help usher in a world of new ideas.

Later in the season, on August 8, we'll experience the New Moon in Leo. Since Leo's evolutionary purpose is self-actualization, this moon phase will encourage us to strengthen our self-esteem. It will also draw attention to anything that's standing in the way of us expressing ourselves spontaneously. It's helpful to think of this as an opportunity to become self-aware and release ourselves from the need for external validation.

We'll be learning many a lesson over the next few weeks, but Leo is still the sign of fun! Leos march to the beat of their own drums (they hate rules), and this season they'll be inspiring all of us to do the same. So be safe as you live it up this month!

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

The spotlight is on you, Leo, as it should be. This month, fear no one and live your best, most authentic life. Use your time back in the Sun to get glam, drop fire selfies on the 'Gram, and turn on the charm! No one will be able to resist you for the next few weeks.


Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

Leo season is lighting up your 12th house, which means you'll be feeling more introspective than usual. We know you like to improve the people and spaces around you, but now's not the time for that. Focus that energy on yourself instead, Virgo. Travel inward, spend time alone, dream, and meditate. Let go of anything that's holding you back before we enter your season next month.


Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

You're already the most social butterfly out there, Libra. Your friendliness and allure are unmatched! And with Leo lighting up your 11th house of community, you're even more charming than usual. This month, you'll be able to forge relationships with ease. Get ready to make loads of new connections or spend a lot more time with the people closest to you.


Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

This season, your professional life is front and center. Your colleagues are taking notice of your skills and talents, Scorpio. Put in the work this month! If you do, you'll find yourself much closer to achieving your career goals.


Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

When the Sun is in a fellow fire sign, you always feel more in tune with yourself, Sagittarius. This Leo season will ignite your passion for adventure, so don't be afraid to get out there and explore! You love to learn new things — and this is the ideal time to do just that.


Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

How are you holding yourself back, Capricorn? This season is the perfect time to turn inward and identify any mental roadblocks standing in the way of your growth and transformation. Then let go of that emotional baggage. Doing so will bring you closer to your ideal self. 


Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Did someone say cuffing season? Leo is lighting up your sector of committed partnerships, so this is going to be a month of deep one-on-one connections. Now's the time to hone your unique Aquarian energy and be bold in your relationships — you never know where it might lead you.


Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

This month, you're focused on finding balance and forming better habits. You may be reworking your routines to prioritize physical activity, eating better, or spending more time with friends. Whatever you need, figure out how to fit it into your daily life. If you can, you'll be reaping the benefits in no time.


Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Get your flirt on, Aries! This season is all about feeling yourself and trusting your intuition. You might also be more creative and lighthearted than usual. Follow your passions, get excited, and enjoy your time in the sun.


Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

You'll be thinking about home a lot this month, Taurus. You may feel disconnected from family or where you grew up — or maybe there's something in your current environment that doesn't feel quite as homey as you'd like. Focus on finding ways to reconnect with your roots and make your space yours. 


Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

This season is lighting up your communication sector, which we love for you because we know how much you love to socialize, Gemini. Tap into that innate desire to connect with others. Share ideas and exchange perspectives. Your social calendar will be filled to the brim this month (but really, when is it not?). Enjoy it! 


Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)

Cancer season may be over, but you're still feeling great, confident, and connected to yourself as you head into Leo territory. Don't lose that momentum — you're growing into the person you were meant to be, so keep at it. You can be hard on yourself, but this season, treat yourself to something nice. Whatever your heart desires, go for it! You're so worthy.

That's it for our astrological insights this month. If you want to rock one of our new Leo-inspired designs, hurry! Because once this zodiac season is over, you won't be able to purchase these pieces again.
