From Cancer to Leo, we are moving from the watery realm of feelings and emotions to the fiery territory of action and vitality. Some of you have already commented on your internal change of wanting to come out of your shell (Cancer) and meeting the world proudly in the face (Leo).
Having spent the past year exploring on issues such as your sense of belonging, roots, family unit and the 'tribe' you're born into (Cancer), it is now time to consider your self identity - who am I (Leo) as an individual? Rather than seeking protection and nurturance (Cancer), the focus is now shifting towards finding your 'stage' and displaying your talents with confidence (Leo). In essence, the energy moves outwards.
Fire signs (Leo, Sagittarius and Aries) tend to feel especially 'at home' with this active backdrop of energy.
Water signs, especially Scorpio (square Leo) may find this overt desire for recognition uncomfortable as it is in conflict with the gentle, private and selfless nature of the water signs. Find the middle ground where both elements can be at peace with one another, e.g. gain recognition for helping others but the applause is private rather than public.
Air signs (Gemini and Libra) are likely to respond rather positively to this sign change as air keeps the fire burning, though Aquarius, in opposition to Leo, may have difficulties with Leo's self-centred approach.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) have their reasons for discomfort but on the plus side, earth can help sustain the interest initiated by fire. Allow fire (Leo) to give you the initial spark then pass the torch to earth for completion.
