The New Moon on August 1st conjuncts in the fiery sign of Leo, symbolised by the mighty Lion. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the giver of life on our planet and the center of our solar system. Leo’s energy reminds us to be grateful for simply being alive and for all the opportunities that come our way. Leo reminds us to enjoy life, to dance in the rain, to allow our wild spirit to soar, and connect with the things that light our soul on fire and spark joy in our heart. Leo inspires us to tap into our authentic selves and allow ourselves to be the person we’ve always wanted to be. Leo season is a time for Self-Expression, for recognising our unique individuality and connecting with our talents and sharing our stories with the world.
The energy of Leo teaches us Self-Acceptance and to love every facet of ourselves. In this journey to Self-Acceptance, it may be necessary to face our vulnerabilities. It can be terrifying to show our true colours to the world, but know that we can align with the energy of the Lion, and tap into our inner courage to express our true selves. This season is a time to say what you really think, do what you want to do and connect with our creative power. The most important thing to remember this season is that YOUR approval is the only one necessary for a fulfilling life. During Leo season, release any need for external validation and speak your truth. Show up in every situation as your real Self and speak your Truth. Not everyone may agree with you but those who do are seeing your magic.
When we live and develop an authentic life, we align with our passions and what lights us from the inside out; we feel joy. As we connect with our joy, we heal. Leo is a season of great healing, but a different healing that occurs in the watery seasons of Cancer or Pisces. Leo’s healing powers come from the sheer bliss of living, and finding meaning the passions that burn brightly in your heart. Leo reminds us that when we allow ourselves to experience bliss and share it with the people around us, we step into a different frequency, one that consists of compassion and a love for life. Feel into these energies this season as you celebrate your victories, your authenticity and your joy.
This Leo New Moon Ritual, we will be working with the energies of the Tiger’s Eye. Tiger’s Eye is a most ancient talisman, mysterious and powerful, revered and feared - an “all-seeing all-knowing eye,” thought to grant a wearer the ability of keen observation. It was chosen by the Egyptians for the eyes in their deity statues to express divine vision, and was believed to provide the protection of the Sun and Earth combined. The energies of the Tiger’s Eye can bring us balance between extremes, moving one out of the world of duality - right and wrong, good and bad, dark and light - and provides an understanding of the underlying unity behind apparent opposites. It brings a more practical and compassionate reasoning to one’s choices, and helps one to reflect the Divine Spirit through each action taken in the world.
It encourages us to use their powers wisely, and allows scattered information to be brought together to a cohesive whole. Tiger’s Eye supports necessary change in all aspects of our life, strengthening the will and clarity of intention in order to manifest at the highest level. It inspires creativity and utilising our talents and abilities, and is superb for stimulating wealth and the good judgement needed to maintain it. You may find Tiger’s Eye at the following stores:
