Explore Your Dreams: Leo New Moon 2012 Cathy Pagano
Where the sign of Cancer exemplifies the feminine powers of the Moon and the Night, Leo shines out with the power of the Sun and masculine solar consciousness.  The Sun symbolizes not only Spirit, but our individuality.  When a culture is based primarily on masculine solar principles and denigrates and rejects the mysterious lunar powers of the unconscious realms, Sun-consciousness turns deadly, scorching the Earth and drying up all the moisture of life.  This one-sided reliance on solar consciousness and rugged individualism has left us in the Wasteland.

Yet when we bring both our solar and lunar natures into balance, our daylight consciousness gets renewed and revived.  This Leo New Moon brings the Sun and Moon together to start a new cycle of self-awareness based on the sacred marriage of masculine and feminine consciousness.  Out of this new marriage, new life and creativity is born.

Leo:  The Sun.  Light.  Lion and Lioness.  King and Queen.  Splendour.  Majesty.  Glory.  Consciousness.  Strength.  Pride. Power. Self-confidence.

These symbols and virtues exemplify the energies of the sign of Leo; strong energies that shape the way we live our lives.  As with all energy, how we use it is up to us.  Do you use your self-confidence with grace and kindness or do you use it to dominate others?  Do you cultivate a balanced expression of your strength, pride and power or do you need to be the center of attention?  Do you light up a room when you walk in or do you hide your light under a bushel?  Each sign has power to shape our destiny, but Leo, as the sign of the first harvest, shows the world who we are and what we’ve cultivated.

Like the Lion and Lioness who exemplify these virtues, we all need their courage and pride to become ‘the best that we can be’.  The great Leo initiation involves taming the strong emotional reactions of our nature through skill and self-mastery, willpower and courage.  Too often in the past, men have done this by killing the lion within and then wearing the dead lion-skin to prove their worth.  A better way lies in the Strength Tarot Card, where the Lady firmly controls the lion without killing it.  Leo asks us to channel our passions and control our energies, not kill it and then live a half-life of looking to the outer world for confirmation of who we are.

So step into your Leo self-confidence today and don't be afraid to shine out who you are!

Until next time,

sweet Dreams
