It’s hot outside and it’s Leo season! That means it’s time for vacationing and self-nourishment. Leos, who are represented by the sun and by the lion, love being able to take it slow and lounge around. Considering the heat waves we’ve been experiencing this season, slowing down is definitely called for.
This bright luminary is certainly bringing the light AND the intensity this summer, so it’s super important that we stay hydrated and give our bodies the nutrients it needs. Incorporating some solar-ruled herbs into your routines can help you embrace and work with the supporting energies of Leo season now and later.
