All About Leo

RisaNewSWe are under the influence of fiery Leo now, sign of individuality (at first), of focusing upon our self-identity, lifetime after lifetime. Leo is self-centering work. This is the developmental stage of the Leo individual building a sense of self (the personality). We (Leo) grow and grow just for ourselves. But then suddenly something new occurs. We become aware that other realities exist around us. A sort of unwinding occurs. Having become wound tight within ourselves, we begin, like petals unfolding, to turn outward toward the world of others. We see life differently.

A new state of consciousness in relation to our surroundings begins. We become creative, recognize our talents, learn to cooperate and make contact. This contact releases love in our hearts. We become group oriented, realizing without the group we’re isolated and alone. We prepare ourselves to cooperative with groups of like-minded others, to serve others.
We have, as Leos, integrated our Aquarian shadow self. Leo, the individual, is always preparing to be Leo/Aquarius, creatively service humanity. At first we join social, political, religious and cultural groups. Eventually we become more discriminating, seeking a Wisdom group working together to better the world. We begin to live in the unknown, the center of each moment. Curious about principles and solar laws, we become cosmic intelligences, fiery Solar Angels. We are ourselves, yet concurrently all others, too. We enter the Ashram. Leo’s path leads always to the heart of the matter.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of July 25–31, 2013 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You need to have some enjoyment, fun and romance and a lot of children around to play with. Creativity will come forth in direct relationship to your playfulness, to the arts you see and experience, and the pleasure you receive when feeling you’re in love. Create all of these environments or find them. Refrain from speculative ventures.



taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
Your creativity will be expressed through home and everyday surroundings. Those who come into your home are cared for with love and warmth. Family is very important and you express your love for them more than usual. You’re proud of your home and the comfort it provides, especially when you’re hurt and healing. Home is your comfort. You’re grateful.



geminiGemini May 22–June 20
It’s time for stories to be told of past times, challenges, growing up, of losses, gains, love affairs, disappointments, friendships and loves. It’s time to gather friends to share ideas and everyone’s stories. Transition Town opened a storefront and invited people to share their stories of what they envisioned the future to be. It created a new neighborhood and sense of community. You need this.



cancerCancer June 21–July 20
It’s a good time to recognize yourself—your gifts and talents, possessions, surroundings, what you’ve earned, what you deserve, what you express, your ability to provide for yourself and for others, your generosity, your care and nurturing abilities, your family, home and what you always offer the world. It’s important to recognize the value of yourself. Do you need us to help you?


leoLeo July 21–August 22
The Sun is shining into your heart and into all that matters to you. It’s the month of your birthday. Happy Birthday, Leo. It’s good during birthdays to ask assistance from our angels for the coming year. Advise them of all needs and wants. Our angels wait for birthdays to hear what their tasks are for the coming year. We create with them. Your entire life is a heartfelt creative experiment. Always be generous with your heart.

 
virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
Allow your light to shine upon others. You will experience a deep peace and sense of contentment. You will discover your greater identity, inner strength and spiritual support. Our strength is not apparent until we’re tested. Then we become the pillar of strength, a ferocious upholder of justice, calling for honesty and integrity in all situations. You uphold this light for others.


libraLibra September 23–October 22
It’s most important to have a bit more fun. Gather friends into a group and have a party somewhere in the sun and water. Build fires; eat cherries, pomegranates and plums—all things red. When you lead, others follow for you project a sunny and warm persona that others want to emulate. You hold yourself with dignity, expressing yourself in ways that bring comfort and harmony. You’re generous and kind. Extend this with compassion.


scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
The public watches you even when you're surrounded by veils hiding you from being seen. No matter what we do, astrology always wins out. Astrology’s relationship to us is purposeful. You’re being called to shine in your field of work, to bring strength and skills of intuition and precision into the world. Everyone who knows you is proud of you. You’re admired for your leadership and talents even when you least desire it. Hold your head up high.


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
It’s time to explore the world again—any world, as long as it different than the world you usually live in. You’re to take a long journey— even if it’s a mental journey. You could read books about other people’s journeys—like Thor Heyerdahl’s Kon-Tiki, a voyage across the Pacific in a self-built raft. Heyerdahl wrote about his journey in a small house in Tesuque, New Mexico. Kon-Tiki demonstrated ancient people making long sea voyages.


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
Is there some project you’re working on with others that summons everyone’s resources and values? It’s good to provide opportunities for others to work with you since you quietly teach leadership, an executive who displays control, discipline, will and purpose along with kindness and consideration. If you review yourself as a leader, within whatever groups you find yourself, even family, see if you display these true-leader Capricorn virtues.
 
aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
When you love and care for someone you’re extremely fun to be with and generous. In relationships you need to have great love focused upon you or you feel a lack of connection. Your partners can be powerful people, well established in some sector of life. You are, on the other hand, very independent. Often you find you must choose between the two with one winning out. You can never allow others to dominate. Your fire diminishes. Standing in the Sun is best.


piscesPisces February 19–March 20
You find you must assume leadership in daily life routines. You’re enthusiastic about the details of daily life and see them as enjoyable and a service. You teach those around you how to be tidy and organized. There’s a sense of sacrifice, too. As you tend others you must find the time and, most importantly, the energy to tend to your health needs, too, or your energy will dissipate and you will fall down and, in Neptune’s boat, simply drift away.

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.
