LEO: DIVINE INNER LIGHT AND LOVE

CELESTIAL EVENTS

The Month Ahead

As the Sun moves into Leo it trines Ceres and Uranus in Aries, squares the Moon in Aries and Jupiter in Taurus, and is inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. Expressing our individuality in heart-centered ways is reinforced by nurturing ourselves and gaining intuitive insights by being assertive, courageous and taking action. Be aware of unconscious tendencies to be selfish, hot-headed or brash.

This is a turning point for us to create a higher vision of life that is solid, secure and dependable. Resolve feelings of irritability and reorganize your life to make way for creative self-expression by eliminating old structures which previously provided material wealth and stability but are no longer realistic or are not in integrity with your values. Resolve deep unconscious fears and feelings of victimization and sacrifice around spirituality. Perhaps an attitude adjustment is needed about what constitutes true spirituality.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

Mercury will station retrograde on August 2nd at 1 degree Virgo. It will move back into the sign of Leo on August 8th, providing an opportunity for us to review, reflect and resolve any problematic tendencies we have when engaging our will while moving about in the world and communicating with others.

Mercury in Leo encourages us to express ourselves with powerful dramatic flair. Can you inspire and communicate with others without being autocratic or dominating? Can you perform from a loving and generous heart-centered place? How can you connect with your own Inner Child who brings creativity and joy to your life?

Mercury will station direct on August 26th at 19 degrees Leo. We can then move forward in a more positive manner having rectified our problematic Leo behaviors. This will be another opportunity to engage with the world in more authentic, powerful, confident and loving ways.

NEW MOON IN LEO

A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon conjoin overhead from our perspective on Earth. This represents the fusion of our outer consciousness and awareness, symbolized by the Sun, with our inner emotional and unconscious self, symbolized by the Moon. This is a fertile time for new beginnings, for sowing the seeds of your new projects and endeavors.

The next New Moon will be on Saturday July 30th at 11:40 a.m. (PDT). This New Moon will be at 7 degrees Leo conjunct Venus, trining Ceres and Uranus in Aries, and inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. The new beginnings we create to value and become more courageous, creative, and self-expressive will nurture and inspire us to be our own independent and unique selves. We may need to readjust our our attitudes around power and its relationship to material wealth as well as our attitudes about spirituality.

The area of your astrological chart where 7 degrees Leo falls represents the area of your life where you can benefit from cultivating new beginnings by being confident, heart-centered and generous. How do you connect with your divine inner light? In what ways can you use your creativity to enhance your self-esteem and self-expression? How can you be more generous and magnanimous in your life?

You may wish to set new goals or create Leo affirmations on this New Moon. Examples are: “I create inner strength and self-reliance.” “I courageously embrace life and all it has to offer.” “I open my heart to generously connect with others.” “I radiate vitality and light!” “I align my will with divine will.”

You will begin to see evidence of the seeds you sow on this New Moon as they come to fruition on the following Full Moon. The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 13th will reward you with a new, innovative, visionary connection to humanity.

Leo: Divine Inner Light and Love

“Joy is not in things; it is in us.”
Richard Wagner

Friday July 22nd the Sun will move out of the sensitive and reflective water sign of Cancer and enter the exuberant and courageous fixed fire sign of Leo. Each succeeding sign of the zodiac provides the means to rectify or redirect the energy of the previous sign. Leo asks us to take leave of the inner emotional realm of Cancer and turn our face towards the Sun to bask in its warmth and vitality.

The positive polarity of Leo gives it an enthusiastic, sunny, and expansive energy. Having a flair for drama and passion, Leo is a great actor and performer. It loves being on stage and in the spotlight. Leo needs attention, approval, love, respect and applause from others.

The key phrase for Leo is “I Will.” Having abundant courage, Leo does not hesitate to act, especially in undertakings in which personal recognition is desired. It participates in life fully and completely. At its best, Leo is generous, heart-centered, and gives to others in loving ways. Leo must guard against being insecure, arrogant, dominating and having an inflated ego.

Proud, regal, and dignified, Leo respects itself. It values honor and is loyal to others. Leo’s animal magnetism and charisma make it a confident and influential leader. Leo’s goal is to inspire others to become leaders and shine in their own right.

In many cultures Leo symbolizes the ultimate authority, God on earth, represented by the crown and throne and personified by kings and queens. The symbol for Leo is the majestic lion, representing power and authority. Positive archetypes for Leo include the benevolent ruler, kings and queens who model courage and strength to their people.

Leo governs the ego and the conscious process of becoming an individual. When we have a healthy ego, we connect with our own inner light and find creative forms of self expression. We learn self-mastery by setting goals and directing our energy and enthusiasm towards them. We are generous in sharing our creativity and love of life with others.

Psychologically, Leo rules our Inner Child: the joyful, creative, spontaneous part of our self who is both playful and sophisticated at the same time. Staying connected to our Inner Child in loving ways connects us with our own spark of divine light. We have more exuberance, and find ways to use our individual energy and vitality in creative, whimsical self-expression. We discover amusements and pleasures, enjoy recreational activities such as games, sports, vacations, holidays, and parties. We have fun as we learn self-mastery in the world.

Spiritually, Leo represents the generous heart-centered out-pouring of love. A candle flame used to light many other candles is not diminished by its sharing. The more that is expressed and freely given, the more there is in the world.

Leo rules our spiritual life purpose, that which gives us joy. Staying connected to our own individual spark of divine light allows us to create out of joy so we can share our love with others. What do you love to do? What kind of activities excite and replenish your heart?

The color for Leo is golden yellow, the radiant color of the Sun. Visualize the color gold when you want to build self-love and self-respect, build confidence, or create warm connections with others. The gem for Leo is ruby. Gold is its metal. Sunflowers, marigolds, orange and citrus trees are Leo planst. Lions, cats and peacocks are Leo animals. Actors, comedians, stage performers and entertainers personify Leo. Parts of the body ruled by Leo include the heart, upper back, spine, solar plexus and spleen.

” Offering a gift of your Leo energy to another person means not a rejection of our own power, or a relegation to living in the shadows of another. It is a dramatic and powerful affirmation of life for all. Inspire them to join you on the stage of life. – Linda Brady, Astrologer

The Sun

Leo is ruled by the Sun, the center of our solar system. The gravitational pull of the Sun keeps the planets in orbit around it. It is the central force linking and binding all the planets, luminaries and other celestial bodies into a cohesive whole.

The Sun is the most personal of the luminaries in astrology. It is the center of our identity and unites the other psychological urges, drives and needs of our multi-faceted personality. It represents our individuality, our ego self, and our conscious focus in life.

The Sun in our astrological chart is a symbol of our creative ability, self-expression, determination, self-mastery and confidence. It describes our physical vitality, our spark of life and radiation of spirit. It grants us authority, honor, ambition, pride, dignity and leadership capabilities. It is your unique, individual frequency of divine light.

When we actively work with our Sun sign energy we feel alive and powerful. We have fun and find joy in life. We feel empowered to use our divine inner light and energy to express ourselves as individuals. We “shine.”
