The middle of the summer is the beginning of Leo season, bringing with it a shift in the mood and powerful vibrational energies. Those born under the Leo sign, July 23 to August 22, will experience this season with renewed energy and feel more confident to explore their various interests and hobbies. Leo people are considered natural born leaders, confident, passionate and proud, just like the Lion. When out of balance, these same qualities can be exaggerated and lead to a demeanor that appears selfish, unyielding and obstinate. With the help of healing crystals, Leo people can amplify their strengths and positive traits. Crystals are energy carriers that are attuned to specific frequencies and can harmonize and balance your energy. When the Sun is in Leo, all zodiac signs will feel its influence. This is a time to let your inner light shine bright and go after the things that you desire, even if they scare you. Let’s take a look at some of the best crystals for Leos that can support and enrich your unique personality traits.
Characteristics of Leo - Strengths and Weaknesses
Date Duration: July 23rd - August 22nd
Planetary Ruler: The Sun
Leo season is marked by the hottest days of the summer. The symbol for Leo is the almighty Lion, and it is ruled by the Sun. This makes sense, since Leo loves to be in the spotlight and has a seemingly never-ending reserve of energy and enthusiasm. This influx of energy is great to put towards creative projects. If you are working on a new project or are deep into the process of designing and creating, then Leo season and these healing crystals will prove very useful.
The fiery, masculine energy of Leo is also associated with ambition, hard work and extroversion. As a fixed sign, Leos often have a singular point of focus and work tirelessly to see things through from start to finish. But their self-assurance and copious amounts of confidence can also lead to them appearing patronizing, bossy and narrow-minded. Signs with a fixed modality, like Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius (there is one for each element), are the doers and creative forces of the zodiac. Healing crystals can enrich the determination and perseverance of the Lion and support your journey through new challenges.
