For the Leo month 10 things to ROAR about.
1. SHINE YOUR LIGHT. You are the source, shine your light for all to see. You are the main player, the director and the star of your own life. Be Proud of who you are.
2. DRAMA: Be aware of all the dramas you create or allow into your life. Why do you need them? What does it feed in you? You have the will to change it.
3. BE THE STAR. Act like you are someone you admire and want to be like. Get your courage up and really GO FOR IT. Take charge of your life. You have the will.
4. HEART CENTERED: Stay in your heart, be in love with the world, and with yourself. POSITIVE SELF-ESTEEM. Treat yourself well, healthy pride based on positive self- esteem is good.
5. EGO: It is important to have a healthy ego. The banishing, torturing and negating the ego in many spiritual and Christian teachings is a twisted Patriarchal shadow. We need our egos as they are our identity but they must not be what we identify with, or all ow the ego to run our consciousness. The ego is really the little, fearful, mortal ” I” acting like he is a king. The Emperorer’s New Clothes is a fairytale teaching story about not letting your ego control you. Keep you ego in check like you would a stubborn dog. In an Age of vanity and superficial Selfies you need to be aware of how your Higher Self, your Soul Star is your real identity. The more selfless the healthier. The more you give to others, the happier you will be.
6. PLAY – your inner child needs to play all the time. When is the last time your did finger-painting, or made sand castles? I know the world is pretty heavy, but you can still take it lightly.
7. CHILDREN: Do something nice for an underprivileged child, so many are denied the most basic of life’s necessities while we mainly live like King’s and Queen’s here in the West. Good time to focus on the question, Do i want to have a child? Be a parent? Why yes or no?
8. GET CREATIVE- It’s our natural state. Our ancestors always painted, danced, sang. Be Happy.
9. STAY POSITIVE, Practice positive thoughts and affirmations. Banish negative thoughts. Bring down the Light. You have the power in your response to everything that is thrown at you.
10. BE CONSCIOUS of everything you do. The LIGHT symbolizes clarity of consciousness. We were all originally made from LIGHT, we are the LIGHT. You are the source of your life. No one has any real authority or power over you. Spread your light. This BIG LIGHT Of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
LEO is the Card of STRENGTH in the TAROT #11 or #8
The card of STRENGTH traditionally has a woman opening the jaws of a lion. She has a LEMNISCATE or INFINITY symbol hovering over her head. There are thousands of variations on this symbol. Sometimes it is #8 or #11. Too complicated to get into now.
The Card symbolizes the will over the beastial, lower animal nature, greed, survival, vanity, jealousy, and everything which LOWERS one’s consciousness.
That ability of the Feminine- the Soul, LOVE to control the lower animal nature is a mind/heart/spirit focus which is called KUNDALINI energy.
The highest SOLAR consciousness is available to us at this time. The SOLAR LOGOS as Theososphist Alice Bailey referred to it, is the highest Light Master teachings available the same as Buddha, Christ etc.

Venus enters VIRGO July 21-August 16 a very quick sprint in the earthy, workaholic, perfectionist, service oriented sign where we love to get our work, diet, our health, our budgets, and all of our shit together.
Venus was known as the Goddess of LOVE and WAR in antiquity. The Sign Virgo was originally associated, now archaically as VIRAGO a WOMAN of “masculine ” strength, whole Goddess/woman, a Warrioress. Virgo, symbolized by the Virgin Harvest Goddess, is a very ancient Constellation. Their Mode and Element is Mutable earth, they are in their bodies most definitely and they are adaptable.
“A virago is a woman who demonstrates exemplary and heroic qualities. The word comes from the Latin word virāgō meaning vigorous’ from vir meaning “man” or “man-like” to which the suffix -āgō is added, a suffix that creates a new noun of the third declension with feminine grammatical gender.” -Wikipedia
“A woman, however, ifexceptional enough could earn the title virago. In doing so, she surpassed the expectations for what was believed possible for her gender and embodied masculine-like aggression and/or excellence. Virago, then, was a title of respect and admiration. In Christianity, a nun or holy woman who had become equal in divinity to male monks through practiced celibacy, exemplary religious practice and devotion, and intact virginity, was considered to have surpassed the limitations of her femaleness and was called virago.”
“The word virago has almost always had an association with cultural gender transgression. There are recorded instances of viragos (such as Joan of Arc) fighting battles, wearing men’s clothing, or receiving the tonsure. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virago

VIRGO is the largest Constellation. What we know as The Virgin Goddess as Demeter to the Greeks, was originally known as VIRAGO. Awoman of “masculine” strength or spirit; a female warrior.We all know that VENUS was known both as the Goddess of LOVE AND WAR, so before the patriarchy really imbalanced her obvious physical strength, Virgo meant VIRAGO. The latter Virgin Goddess originally meant she was a parthenogensis Goddess too capable of self-fertility.She is not a-sexual. These women were sacred sexual Priestesses.
Whole and complete unto herself, needing no man at all. Virgo is the Great Mother, the Goddess of the earth and the Harvest shown holding an ear of corn, relating to mysteries of life death and transformation, part of the Eleusinian mysteries of rebirth.
You just need to be very pure and hygienic, dedicated and focussed if you are going to be able to give birth parthenogenically or to be with a Virgo of either sex.
Virgo is apparently the most populated Astrology sign according to statistics.
Out with the VENUS in LEO drama and the passion, the power-mongering, Royalty treatments. Even though Sun enters LEO July 22, 2021 and It’s all about ME attitude. We need a break from all that Venus and MARS in LEO drama.
Venus in Virgo, in the 6th house naturally, is in it’s “FALL” because VENUS is considered to be exalted in PISCES so sheis considered weak in the 6th sign.
Venus in Virgo’s is service-oriented “How can I help you” peeps.”For a Virgo work is their religion.
Virgo’s are not generally very emotional or passionate they have practical emotional control. This placement is very modest, earthy, the servants traditionally. The waiters and waitresses of the Zodiac. They are workaholics, perfectionists, intelligent, organized, budget-conscious, worriers. Totally opposite to LEO.
VENUS in Virgo
imparts VENUSian values- feminine, creative, relationships, values, to all things VIRGO.
Venus in Virgo peeps are the workaholics and perfectionists of the ZODIAC. Occasionally they appear messy but they’ve got it all organized in their heads. My Dad was a totally messy Virgo. They are sensitive and easily hurt.
It’s Marie Kondo declutter as a spiritual act time for sure.
Health is a huge issue for Virgo/Venus in Virgo as they do worry a lot and that affects their health. They often have underlying health issues. Their weakest body part is the Upper intestines and they should avoid drinking alcohol, greasy, heavy and spicy foods. They are very disciplined and health conscious so they are often working out, doing yoga, on special food diets. They often work in the health care system and can be doctor’s, dentists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, natural health practitioners, administrators or salespeople with the health care system.
Naturally accountants or anyone who pays attention to details, statistics and the like. They are usually excellent money managers, and very tight with money, they love budgets. They love “freebies”
With Venus in Virgo, you gotta love your work. If not find the work that you do love.
DATING DURING VENUS IN VIRGO SEASON
women, love, values turn to earthy practical shoes and budget shopping, wearing brown or harvest ochres or golden shades. Women dress more conservatively business-like, more modest, sensible pumps, blue jeans, simple and clean styling.
Virgo’s are very focussed, detail-oriented, nitpicky, perfectionist, never satisfied, workaholics -you will have to pry them away from their desks, as they are married to their job’s and they may avoid intimacy because they love information, social media, especially hands-on books, etc.
Mercury rules VIRGO’s we must always remember that. They are intellectual, info gatherers, and they will analyze your potential first.
VIRGO is the sign that is associated with THE HERMIT in the TAROT
They don’t have to be all alone but they are private, humble, service-oriented people.
You don’t have to splurge on an expensive date to impress a Virgo. Take them to a health-conscious, organic nouvelle cuisine simplistic resto. They love places that seem to offer good value, as they do not have expensive tastes necessarily. They like tasteful things and they love bargains. They like spas.
Virgo’s love to read and talk, they like Hi-brow culture, a good play, see lectures, or matinee movies.
Remember they are down to earth, nothing too fussy types. They love to and need to be in nature. Camping, hiking, bicycling, walk in the countryside.
An awkard day of disconnecting from feelings too much.
During this time your upper digestion will likely be more sensitive. Especially when Mars also enters Virgo and agitates Virgo’s already sensitive digestive tract. Do watch your diet very carefully, eating well and being meticulous about what you eat. Good time to initiate a new cleaner, more plant-based diet too. The body works best with natural medicines.
