One of the best things about Leo season is that we need
absolutely no reason to let the joy and enthusiasm flow. This is the time of
year when play is in order. Leo lives in the domain of the young and
lighthearted. When these two merge in Leo, a pure sense of joy and enthusiasm
arise. We no longer need a reason to play, sing, and spend time with friends.
With the long days, we have more energy stored and we’re likely to just feel
happier. Leo season means it’s time to let the joy and exuberance for life flow
freely and here’s how you can do that:
Practice being Grateful
Nothing ignites joy like gratitude.
But gratitude has to become a routine, meaning it’s something we do regularly
and habitually like brushing our teeth or showering. A gratitude practice will
bring your mind to experiences, people, and opportunities to appreciate living.
One easy way to incorporate gratitude into your life is by starting and ending
each day by writing down three things you are grateful for.
Nothing gets you out of your
serious adult world like playing games. It doesn’t matter what type of games
you play, just don’t play alone if you can help it. Playing with others tends
to boost the energy and get the juices flowing. With their power to free us
from our busy minds, drifting constantly to thoughts of the past and the
future, games are a great way to be present and feel the child within. Joy is a now
kind of feeling.
This is such a no-brainer. Having
sex releases oxytocin, which is the happy hormone. Sex, when experienced with a
partner we feel free and fully expressed with, creates a level of joy and
exuberance no over-the-counter drug can replicate. And believe it or not, Leo
is the sign that rules romantic adventure. This means sexual energies are
running high and joy is accessible with our partners.
Watch TV or Movies from Your Childhood
Do you remember your favorite
movies and television shows from your childhood? Were those times happy when
you and your siblings or family members gathered together for family
entertainment? Films like The Wizard of
Oz or Mary Poppins generated so
much joy. Go back to your fondest childhood memories and watch the level of joy
rise within your heart.
Listen to Music
If you haven’t created a playlist
of your favorite happy songs, what are you waiting for? Music is the language
of the heart, and there is no faster way to your joy than with music. Music
will reach deep into your soul and lift you out of dark places in a split
second. And if you happen to enjoy dancing, go for it. Sing out loud, dance
wild, and enjoy free outdoor summer concerts.
