The Sun moves into Pisces early this week and brings up older themes of escapism and the ancient instinct to hide from those imagined experiences of stepping into your power and how difficult that’s been known to be. We all have defenses that we put up before we know we’re doing so, largely because of ancient memories of being annihilated for letting our light shine. You chose the Leo experience in this lifetime precisely so that you could remember to shine your Light as brightly as possible. This week, as the Sun moves toward Neptune, be super vigilant for old escapist tendencies, and make it your number one prerogative to take down any defenses that you can catch going up. When you face life without your shields, you automatically shine brightly and the world can see you for who you truly are.

Be brilliant.
