You’re going to need as much of that trademark confidence as you can muster, Leo, because this month really is all about you! First, the last of the Jupiter-Pluto squares recalibrates your voice, both written, spoken, and artistic. You may find yourself thinking more before you speak, or being more vocal about how you feel. Either way, the Aquarius lunar eclipse on the 7th reveals how your loved ones (and your competition) react to your new mode of self-expression. Mercury retrograde in your worth sector could cause you to question your new choices, but stick by them.

The rest of the month sees you in your home court, the spotlight. The sun (your ruling planet) in your sign links up with the north node, also called the “destiny point,” on the 16th with a message that preps you for the massive solar eclipse on the 21st. That solar eclipse changes everything about the way you see yourself, and the way other people see you. It’s a cosmic rebrand! Venus into your sign a few days later ensures it’s a beautiful transformation. If you’ve ever wanted to make a drastic change to your look, now’s the time! Mars links with the north node on the 27th to give the experience a final boost towards completion. Mercury retrograde into your sign on the 31st means September may be a little stressful, but only because you’re smoothing out kinks that will run like clockwork afterwards. Hang in there, Leo!
