Let’s be in the splendour of loving Ourselves and Life! Just for the sheer Joy of it!
Be BOLD and have the courage to let the Leo Sunshine through at this Leo Full Moon. Leo at it’s best is about sharing Joy and Pleasure. The Leo full moon encourages us to get into the part of ourselves that wants to shine. Not dim our lights for anyone or any circumstance. In Marianne Williamson’s words…
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
This captures the leo urge for authentic self expression perfectly. Some of the qualities associated with leo are: generous, proud, extravagant, enthusiasm, show off, loves the limelight and being bold, dramatic, vain, domineering, courageous, dignified, ostentatious, confidant, need to feel special, narcissistic arrogant and a wonderful capacity for infectious JOY!
With all it’s imperfections Leo is GRAND, it loves to do things with flair, drama and style! THINK BIG! Let’s shake off our inhibitions and ride this opportunity to express our originality fully. Jupiter and Uranus are giving this Moon a hand to cajole us to show off! Take risks! Lighten up! Do it with humour!
Oscar Wilde is a great example of this.
In his inimitable words….
Other memorable words from Oscar Wilde…..
“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” !!
“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If they did they would cease to be an artist.”
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
Maya Angelou captured the Leo energy exceptionally well in her poem ‘Phenomenal Woman’
One of the things we can do to grow this feeling in ourselves is to focus on what is already rich in our lives. Is it in our relationships with our loved ones, the home we have created, in our work life, our connection to nature or our pets? It’s important to be aware and appreciative of the ways our lives are already wealthy.
Leo urges us to do things HEARTILY! Shake off our inhibitions and dance with life! Cosmic energies are inviting us to a new freedom of self expression. What big ideas and projects can we cook up? Let’s allow the vital life force through from our heart and let the magic flow.
