Welcome to Leo where drama is high and matters of the heart are of prime importance. This Leo season we’ll have ample opportunity to explore our own inner authority based on our intuition and heart center. We’ll be able to manifest creative endeavors more easily or just start manifesting the ways in which we want to live our lives. Intuition will be heightened and our aptitude for romance enhanced.
Leo, as we know, is the Lion, the king of the jungle. If you’ve ever seen a lion with its pride then you know they are cuddly, caring creatures with great affection who can act in the exact opposite of ways when threatened. This comes from a place of protection more than anything else as the lion seeks to protect its heart or anything living in or close to its heart. Here we see in clarity the authority of the Leo. There are other signs associated with authority. There is Capricorn authority which acts as the taskmaster, upholding tradition or making sure discipline reigns – Capricorns, when in their element, are the hardest of workers, building mountains and becoming the best at whatever they do through sheer unending practice. There is Aries authority.. which isn’t really authority, Aries is more about dominance – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Aries follows their own will and truth, they are spurred by anger and will attack when roused. Leo is similar but there are differences. The Leo will forever be ruled by its heart, it is what the lion follows, it is what the lion believes, it is what gives the lion strength and valor, it is how the lion became king.
Astrologers often don’t mention how intuitive fire signs are – they are the most intuitive. Water signs may be emotional and very psychic, but these often act as impressions. Fire signs know things. Especially the Leo (whether they choose to follow and trust their intuition is a personal matter however). The Leo’s intuition lays right in their heart, and as the heart pretty much runs the show in what we call the human body it’s easy to see why Leos often get a similar reputation. And that is the Leo authority. It’s not about power for power’s sake (though damn they love a good ego stroke), it’s about staying true to their heart. Nothing is more powerful than that. When we see a person aligned in that form we feel it. When we are aligned in that form we feel strong. This is what the Leo moon cycle is about first and foremost, finding our inner authority through our heart, trusting our heart, following it and developing acute intuition in the process.
Creativity, fun, romance, mm so nice. Now’s the time for that!!! Creativity is fun, why not make it romantic? Romance is creative, why not make it fun? Fun is romantic, why not make it creative? A smooth, equal blending of the three is a challenge, but will actually make the challenge of each one on its own easier. Creativity, the energy of birthing life into form. This can be anything from creating a baby to a painting to our actual lives. Fun is something many don’t really allow themselves to have too often. Romance..also something that can be elusive and sometimes even uncomfortable for a lot of people. Leo demands all three though. All three together, at the same time, because in its heart it is what is true. It’s not too bad when the stars align and demand that you bring some fun, romance and creativity into your life. Stay open.
Let’s talk political for a minute!! It is very important to note that the square between Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn has gotten tighter. As I mentioned in the last post, Pluto is about regeneration and transformation, Capricorn rules tradition, power structures, oppression, etc. Within its oppression is the journey towards freedom though.
Understanding that Jupiter makes everything it touches gigantic and that it is in Libra, the sign of social justice, we are now seeing an extreme and growing friction between the people and the powers that reign. As pluto progresses through Capricorn these old paradigms are going to shift DRAMATICALLY. It is uncomfortable, it is enraging, it is heartbreaking and raw, but that’s what it’s supposed to be. Pluto is designed to destroy so that a new, better, and wiser version may rise from the destroyed’s ashes. And so shall it be or better.
I will be writing a fully comprehensive piece on Pluto and its powerful effect as social upheaval in the next week.
Affection and heart resonance to all ≈
