Asteroid Juno rules commitment, and as it shifts into Leo, highlighting your sector of dreams and intuition, you are being guided to embrace your more spiritual side fully. As an earth sign, you had to learn early on that practicality led to stability and success. However, you are a dynamic individual capable of weaving together worlds to create your fate. Lean into your more spiritual and intuitive side because as you do, you will see the thoughts you've been having aren't just random but the divine speaking to you by working through you.  

Juno helps you commit more fully to whatever it touches, and in this area of your life, it's about believing in yourself. Even if it's those aspects of life like intuition that will lack any logical explanation. When you commit to trusting yourself and your feelings, you unlock the key to the life you've been dreaming of.

(September 23 - October 22) 

Luckiest day of the week: Tuesday, August 15, 2023 

Leo's energy helps to activate a more incredible determination to pursue your goals and dreams for the future. As Juno enters this area of your life alongside the New Moon in Leo, it's time to fully seize a new beginning and invest in it. Focus on how you can show yourself you believe in your dreams by validating your desires and seeing your thoughts as being divinely guided by the universe. When you commit to your goals for the future, you also step into a new level of life as you effortlessly attract what is meant for you.  

Juno holds promises of abundance and fulfillment. You just must ensure you are following your own heart and not the advice of others. This may feel counterproductive as you tend to take the path of least resistance to keep peace in your life. However, you will find that sometimes you need to upset the balance at the moment to create the life you dream of long term. Don't be afraid to make a few ripples if it means you're finally heading in the right direction.
