JULY 22 IT’S LEO TIME! Time to roar, Let’s all be King’s and Queen’s for a month from July 22- Aug 22
Leaving the need for security and comfort behind in emotional Cancer it’s now time to fire up and be pussycats or tomcats.
THE SUN rules the sign of LEO, so people born in this sign truly have SOLAR POWER burning through their veins.
In Ancient Egypt a Lion Headed Goddess, Sekhmet was worshipped, The Sphinx has the body of a Lion The height of the Ancient Egyptian age was ruled by the constellation LEO.
Wherever you have the sign Leo somewhere in your natal chart, each sign exists in each astrology chart is where you are charismatic, feel that you are the Source and center of the Universe. The Lion is on the emblem of the coat of Arms of England. The great Hindu Goddess Durga rides a tiger. WHich is also a lionlike animal.
DURGA HINDU GODDESS who stopped all wars rides a Tiger
Leo is where you are a natural ruler. Can be self-centered, egotistic,overbearing, bullies when unconscious.
LEO the 5th sign, the 2nd fire sign is a fixed sign. a T- shirt would be
I’m a LEO and you know it.
The big honcho, the boss, the leader,you are the SUN KING or SUN QUEEN. King Midas. Everything he touched turned to gold.
You are the gold, have the gold, You don’t need to win gold medals at the Olympics, you know you’ve got it. That’s STAR POWER.
Leo is also the sign of the CHILD, therefore it is innocent at heart. Deep down Leo’s feel like little kids playing dress up and as Shakespeare said, all the worlds’ a stage. we are all role playing. BE conscious and careful of which roles you choose, Victim, victor? You are the star of your own movie, You are the director- Fellini, Hitchcock, James Cameron, Spielberg? which one are you? and all the actors in your drama.
We were all once children, we all have inner children whose needs we need to honor and attend to all our lives. “Be like a little child” was one of Jesus’s famous sayings. which means stay innocent,stay trusting. All children are egocentric, Leo is the sign of ego, self, me, watch me shine. So LEo is also the sign of performers, actors, people who need to be on stage, need a lot of attention, fame, gold, glitter to manifest themselves.
the 5th sign, like the 5th element in a way, is the house of LOVE AFFAIRS. Everyone wants/needs/craves that. If you have the Sun moon or other planets in LEO and or in the 5th house you will be focused on attracting and experiencing many affairs.It does depend on which planet it is of course.
So if you havent been allowing your self to shine or to play lately then definitely take courage, be daring, show off a bit.
Be conscious of the roles you do choose to play. EVeryone feels they want to be famous, a king or queen, these days. A friend of mine asked me yesterday why that was. It started with the PLUTO in LEO generation, the baby Boomers who set the stage, with me, me, me. From 1940- 1957 this generation saw the rock stars, the leader of the music and cultural counter-culture born. Bob Dylan, the Beatles etc.
Now that energy which was seeded back then went up a notch and morphed into the opposite sign of Aquarius which is the sign of freedom, revolutions, technology, inventions, the group mind which birthed the Internet when Uranus ruler of Aquarius entered that sign in 1995- 2003 then further amped up by Neptune who rules Glamour, Hollywood, illusions, delusions, Aquarius from 1998 – April 2011.
So what i s real and what is an illusion? These days with Photosho, reality is just an illusion.
The only known reality is in your HEART, and that is the true nature of LEO, the heart.
Here’s a RUMI poem, he wrote lots of poems about Lion’s, the heart etc.
The time has come to turn your heart
into a temple of fire.
Your essence is gold hidden in dust.
To reveal its splendor
you need to burn in the fire of love.
