Beautiful, powerful Leo energy in today’s new moon urges us to be filled with strength and remember who we are, powerful creators of our own destiny. A new moon is always a fertile time for new starts but this one is particularly amazing.
In tarot, Leo the lion often appears on the major arcana card for Strength. Lion is fierce, warm and loyal. “Does the lion worry about the opinions of sheep?” Nope. Lion roars and takes the initiative. The Lion is his/her true authentic self.
Today is a wonderful time for initiating what you wish to bring to you in order to live an authentic life, true to what you stand for and believe. To begin creating or contributing towards something positive and life changing for others who feel challenged. Now is the time for doing, with the focus on being clear about exactly what it is we wish to attract and create more of.
If you have recently asked, “Why me?” or felt powerless about events in your life, you can begin to change your thinking and expectations today.
Other planetary influences are warning us to temper the Lion with kindness, tact and diplomacy, especially if we are facing the truth of some uncomfortable circumstances or feel righteous anger – The Big Ego will be puffed up so be aware and prepared for that.
If today had a mantra it would be “Know Thyself” – A reminder we are to treat ourselves with the same kindness we show others – accept all parts of who we are and give ourselves permission to roar!
