What The Summer Solstice On June 20 Means If You're A Leo

Leo, you are ruled by the sun, so summer is very much your season (via Love To Know). You, like the sun itself, are fiery and fueled by combustion. Your joy and excitement are explosive, as are your anger and grief. Just like everything seems more pronounced in the summer, from the blue of the sky to the tumult of thunderstorms to the color of flowers and trees in full bloom, so to are you in all your glory in this sunny season. 

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year, meaning all people in the northern hemisphere get to soak up the sun for longer than on any other day (via Allure). It's the day this half of the world celebrates entering into the season of warmth, beauty, and life. For millennia, societies and cultures have celebrated this significant celestial event, and for those who believe in astrology today, it is still a major moment for change and welcoming the new. In your case, Leo, there are certain areas of your life to focus on to get the most out of this moment and the start of your season.  

What Leos can expect from the summer solstice

Leo, you may be entering into this season feeling not quite like your magnetic exuberant self (via Reader's Digest). In this case, you might be feeling perplexed or distressed at your lack of motivation to do what usually comes naturally to you at this time of year, like organizing social gatherings, jumping at every potential opportunity for fun, and moving at 1000 miles per hour toward everything and anything that catches your eye. 

Instead of being distressed by your honest feelings right now, the best thing to do is to seek a mentor you can trust to help sort out what you're feeling. If you are feeling like the goals and dreams you have are too big and too out of reach, that can make you feel helpless and hopeless. But the right mentor can help you take steps toward those dreams and celebrate the smaller victories along the way. Rome wasn't built in a day, Leo, even with a king or queen of your caliber at the helm. Be gentle with yourself. 

Further, it might help you to feel more like yourself and more alive to get outside and connect with nature, especially if you can exercise near or in a body of water. Summer is the perfect time to swim the ocean, raft down a river, or hike by a lake. Soak it up and be present in all the beauty around you, and you will feel yourself shine again.
