An artist is an artist only because of his exquisite sense of beauty, a sense which shows him intoxicating pleasures, but which at the same time implies and contains an equally exquisite sense of all deformities and all disproportion. ~~Charles Baudelaire
All Artists have tried to understand this Leo energy. They have all had their hearts broken. They have stared at the very eyes of duality. And they have howled at the Moon. For to create is to OPEN YOUR HEART and that is what is being asked of us. I am all torched up! Are you? 😉
My connection to the Moon cannot be explained or written about, because no matter how hard I try to describe my emotions and feelings, they blur the fact-fiction ontological boundary and words fall short. My blood connects me to the Moon, my womb connects me to moon and the Goddess in me connects me to the Moon and this one is in my 12th house of INTUITION, ALL THINGS HIDDEN, the UNCONSCIOUS and the House of mysticism and spirituality, which means I have to GIVE, GIVE, GIVE…what? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. This NEW MOON has a SUPERNATURAL SIGNIFICANCE for me. Invoke Isis, Hecate, Diana, Freya, Morrigan, Ixchel, Demeter or Kali…whoever resonates with you.
This 0 degree New Moon is happening on the direct degree of my natal Sun in Leo. The first and final degrees of a sign are called CRITICAL POINTS. The planets and the attributes of the house has a difficulty in expressing itself and the 12th house is the SOUL LESSON.
My Sun is at 0 degrees, my AS lord Mercury is at 11 degrees and Saturn at 29 degrees, are in Leo which is the 12th house in my natal chart, so even if you do not know astrology, by now you can guess how much of this Leo energy is active in my persona. I love it, did you hear me complaining? Oh, remember to be seen at the right places. A lot can come out of it.
When one is born with this critical point or 0 degrees Sun, then that often signifies diverse TIMELINES merging and the veil between the worlds is thin. 0 has no value, it is above value, 0 is the Alpha (beginning) and Omega (the highest) as there is no beginning and no end. All is infinite. The ancients proclaimed that the ‘God force’ is a circle whose centre is everywhere and its circumference is nowhere and resonates with ETERNITY. 0 is also NOTHINGNESS or SUNYATA which denotes freedom from the material world.
There are two “Fires” and a distinction is made between them in the Occult teachings. The first, or the purely Formless and invisible Fire concealed in the Central Spiritual Sun, is spoken of as “triple” (metaphysically); while the Fire of the manifested Kosmos is Septenary, throughout both the Universe and our Solar System.” (Vol. 1, p. 87) ~HPB
This 0 degree energy is what makes me feel like I exist in two dimensions at the same time. Like I am here, but also there. It’s like my soul decided to be born at the very start of Leo to teach me valuable lessons of BEING ME and this NEW MOON will occur total healing of my PERSONAL IDENTITY.
“O mighty Threefold Flame of life thou gift of God so pure, take my thoughts and energy and make them all secure.” ~~Zarathustra, Nietzsche
Another aspect which brings me here in front of this world stage as an ARTIST OF CONSCIOUSNESS is my Chrionic evolution. Now during this New Moon there is a trine between the Moon in Leo and Chiron in Pisces ruled by NEPTUNE which is RETROGRADE in my natal chart at 15 degrees 53 minutes in Sag(THE ARCHETYPE OF THE STRANGER). This also makes me blame myself for every single thing that has gone wrong in my life. Chiron, now in Pisces is finally allowing me to see- it is not my fault. It is not anyone’s fault. Things are just the way they are meant to be.
My Moon is in Pisces, not in the end degree where Chiron is placed, but at 11 degrees 35 mins. This means one thing- that I have found the courage to open my heart(LEO) and heal from old wounds(CHIRON) which I intend to share with you. Because the human experience is interlinked whether we know it or not. That is why being Tinaheals works for me, I can come from an AUTHENTIC PLACE OF SELF EXPRESSION and HEAL by showing you what the Universe wants to experience- AS ME!
Why so serious my Beloved? Stop whatever you are doing right this minute and take a moment to smile. Maybe you do not feel like smiling. Stay with me here. Force your muscles to simulate a smile. You can totally be fake about it. Hold that smile and in about thirty seconds you will see that your jaws relax and you actually begin to smile.
That smile that plays on your lips- that is Leo. That crazy, impassioned love you feel in your heart- that is Leo. The way your heart sings when you think of the woman you love- that is Leo.
Leo is about playfulness. It is about curiosity. It is about letting the INNER CHILD out to play. Leo is passionate. Leo is sensual and with TWO NEW MOONS taking place in Leo this year, you can very well imagine that the Universe wants us to learn whatever comes our way through this energy.
So do not wait anymore. Come out to play and let us explore the SYMBOLISM OF THE THREE SUNS.
1) The physical Sun – the anima mundi; the animal soul. Multiplicity.
2) The heart of the Sun – the human soul and the divine ego. Duality.
3) The central, spiritual Sun – the divine consciousness. The will of the whole. The awareness of God. Unity.
As you have been told, the Sun veils certain hidden planets, and in the case of Leo, the two planets through which the Sun focuses its energy or influences (like a lens) are Neptune and Uranus. The “heart of the Sun” employs Neptune as its agent, whilst the central, spiritual Sun pours its influences through Uranus. ~~Excerpt from ESOTERIC ASTROLOGY.
Neptune is RETROGRADE in PISCES which is also highlighted as CHIRON forms a TRINE to the new moon from there and Uranus in Aries is also a part of a FIRE TRINE with Saturn in Sag and the NN in Leo! The possibilities are endless. Do you see it?
We often speak of the Hierarchy of “Flames” (see Book II.), of the “Sons of Fire,” etc. Sankaracharya the greatest of the Esoteric masters of India, says that fire means a deity which presides over Time (kala). ~~HPB
Mars is one of the main protagonists of this New Moon which makes this energy so much about sex, power play, action and all things MASCULINE. The DIVINE MASCULINE is very much out to play as Leo is also male, like most of the players involved.
The sexual energy is INTENSELY COMBUSTIBLE as Mars who is the ruler of Aries is also fire energy folks and he is energising the New Moon with sexual desires and longings. Firing our libidos.
There is a raw, primordial sexuality that Mars will bring to the table and the New Moon is pure potentiality. She is the feminine being impregnated by the masculine and what will come of it? Whatever you want! Don’t you see? That is the magick of this season.
Whatever you want is yours. Whoever you desire, you may approach and make yours. You just think I am BSing, but seriously guys, there is some amazing alchemy that is about to take place in the Cosmos. There are so many luminaries in the FIRE SIGNS heralding a brand new cycle. THERE IS NEWNESS EVERYWHERE.
The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and the North Node are in Leo at this time, Saturn is in Sag and Eris, the dwarf planet and Uranus are in Aries. This is pure combustible FIRE potentiality and they are drawing energy from the SINGLE SPIRITUAL SUN.
Our own sun is, then, for us the symbol of the true one he reflects, and by meditating on “the most excellent light of the true sun” we can gain help in our struggle to assist humanity. Our physical sun is for physics, not metaphysics, while that true one shines down within us. The orb of day guards and sustains the animal economy; the true sun shines into us through its medium within our nature. We should then direct our thought to that true sun and prepare the ground within for its influence, just as we do the ground without for the vivifying rays of the King of Day.” ~~William Q. Judge
The GAYATRI MANTRA, is the oldest hymn known to humanity and it pays homage to this CENTRAL SPIRITUAL SUN.
Om bhur bhuvah svaha! Tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat.
Listen, ye Sons of the Earth, to your instructors — the Sons of the Fire (a). Learn there is neither first nor last; for all is one number, issued from no number (b). ~HB
It is this metaphysical Sun that is providing us and the luminaries of the SOLAR SYSTEM with COSMIC DOWNLOADS during this New Moon and the time leading to the GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE. This is not the time to be quiet. This is the time to stand up and speak your truth. It does not matter that you are nervous, just remember that this is the time to JUST BE YOU and to believe in that you, to love that you. There is nothing more powerful. This SPIRITUAL SUN is also illuminating the 5D timeline which is becoming more easily accessible to us. Everything is becoming lighter, more air and fire based- rejoice in the AGE OF AQUARIUS.
Gregor Samsa wakes in his bed and discovers he has transformed into a giant bug. Wondering what has happened, he looks around his small room, where everything appears normal. ~Kafka, The Metamorphosis.
From the moment I read these lines, I realised that poor dear Gregor had forgotten to be himself, so estranged and alienated was he!!! He lived his life, so busy trying to please every single person in his life that he had no inner passion left. He had long been dead before he became an insect. In fact Gregor had given up everything Leonine in himself to reach this state of alienation and depersonalisation that he became an insect. It made me want to scream and shout. Why did Gregor accept everything so readily? WTF? He had no planets in Leo guys. He was definitely no DRAMA QUEEN like so many of us Leos have been called from time to time. lol!
My personal individuality revolted at the thought of living a life trying to appease everyone. I have never been particularly good at that. Where is the fun in Gregor’s life? Where is the time for play? There was none and that is what brought about the metamorphosis!
The events of my life, especially 2011 onward have me considering the fact that they take place in some chaotic parallel Universe, Like Gregor’s, for there is no logic, there is no meaning. Random synchronous OCCURRENCES leading to a dance of chaotic frenzy and then catharsis!?! Maybe. MAYBE NOT.
All this is triggering my TWELFTH HOUSE which is the HOUSE OF THE UNCONSCIOUS and natal planets have a huge difficulty in expressing themselves here. So much for my Sun, Mercury and Saturn that have made this house their abode in the moment of my birth. According to Ptolemy, the 12th corresponded to that part of the sky, just above the horizon, where stars were obscured by the “thick, misty exhalations from the moistures of earth.” Essentially everything HIDDEN and UNKNOWN, things MYSTICAL and SUPERNATURAL will be triggered for me. And believe me, I have been feeling it. The HIGH PRIESTESS energy is heightened.
Be prepared to LET NEW THINGS AND PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR LIVES. Yes my peeps, people will be popping into your lives from all over the place. It is freaky, it is bizarre, but it is happening.
The beginning of this month was laden with psychic energy for me, as well as mundane duties which had to be executed. I am not only a PRIESTESS. I am a mother, a wife, a daughter and sometimes these responsibilities can be a bit too much. I want to write or work on my digital art, Meditate or hug trees, but how can I? I have a baby to feed. I have animals to feed and look after.
This New Moon will shift the focus to OURSELVES in a huge way. The key is finding BALANCE between your INDIVIDUAL NEEDS and your responsibilities.
The mood has definitely been uplifting from today with the Venus/Jupiter trine and now I can feel the exuberance kicking in. There will be so much positivity in the air soon, so make sure to be a part of the CELEBRATIONS for it is time to CELEBRATE. That is Leo, ain’t it? Partying and celebrations?
I feel like partying. But then who doesn’t this Leo season? So make sure to explore your sensuality with this energy. For most of us, the sexual drive will be at an all time high tipping point. That is how Mars likes it baby. He likes it hot and wild and when he is in Leo, make sure to channelise your sexual energy correctly.
This is the time to approach a love interest, believe me, if you play your cards right, you might not only have one of the best experiences of your life in bed, but find your twinflame/soulmate. CREATIVE VISUALISATIONS and PSYCHIC CONNECTION are the keys.
LAUGHTER MEDITATION and TANTRIC SEXUALITY are the best modes of tuning into this vibe. Laugh for no apparent reason, preferable in nature. Laughter raises our frequency and helps you tune into the Leo playful, childlike energy.
Adapt any Tantric ritual to suit your needs. Think of how during lovemaking you can EXPRESS YOUR OWN UNIQUE SELF.
EVERY ATOM OF OUR PHYSICAL BODY contains a gigantic energy, the equivalent of 200 million eV. In certain conditions, these colossal energies may be controlled at will, allowing the human being to resort to fast ways in order to gradually free the power that is “chained” in the atoms of the human body. ~sivasakti.com
Sexual alchemy will empower us with this Mars alignment.
Some ideas to enhance your sex life~
- FLIRT. Leo is all about flirting. If you have a partner, experiment by flirting at home and even openly Surprise her/him..If you are single or in an open relationship, then go for it! Communicate with the Leonine fire, for Mercury is also there. Yay!
- Give each other a small gift. It could be a poem, an art piece, a song, anything. It can also be a tantric massage. Be creative. GET PAST YOUR INSECURITIES.
- Kiss deeply. Leo is heartcentred energy and French kissing is surely one way to activate the heart chakra. If you are a longterm couple and have forgotten what it feels like to smooch, then get back to it this New Moon. Mars will support you.
- Take a hike to the woods and make love in nature. Make a fire by the beach and spend time looking at the stars. Send love to the New Moon and all the planets.
Speak your mind with your mate, and you might be surprised to see that your partner is open to your sexual fantasies. Be BOLD. Be like the LIONESS. I like the Lion very much, but the Lioness is incredibly powerful to me. For she protects the cubs. She hunts for the food and she feeds her lion! The Lion maybe the king of the jungle, but the alpha lioness is the ultimate symbol of the protector and the nurturer.
Are you ready to ask yourself with glee- WHO AM I?
Keep asking and you will learn to love and accept yourself, no matter what. You will embrace who you are. The TRINE with Chiron will facilitate this process.
Since Leo is the LIGHT energy, it is time to shine in your light. Explore yourself thoroughly and work with that light. Even in darkness there is light and in light there is darkness. This tells us to accept DUALITY, the 2nd aspect of the TRIPLE SUN as I discussed above.
Remember to create a sacred space for contemplation. DO NOT BE HARSH WITH YOURSELF FOR ANY MISTAKES YOU MIGHT HAVE MADE in the past or might make in the future. Mistakes don’t define you. Nothing defines you. You are indefinable, just like the Universe.
You may feel lazy, and that is okay. Spend time just lounging,, like the lion does and you will have those blissful epiphanies. Now from the 23rd this FIERY LEO VIBE will be felt till the GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE and A LOT WILL HAPPEN, individually and collectively. Eclipses are all about SOUL EVOLUTION and the change is appearing in our DNA.
You may feel anxious, agitated, hyper with this energy, so don’t jump the gun if you suddenly feel like confronting someone. Wait and watch! CHARGE YOUR CRYSTALS if you feel antsy. Breathwork also helps.
There is a SATURN/VENUS OPPOSITION on the 24th, grounding us to address matters of love and desires in a matured way. Sobering influence after this fantastic energy, but fret not.
Leo rules the HEART. So look after the only organ that does not get cancer. Yes my peeps, the heart has its own electromagnetic field and does not get cancer! How magical is that!
The secret here is to do what you LOVE. ASK THIS NEW MOON FOR LOVE, FOR YOUR SOULMATE, TWINFLAME. START SOMETHING ABSOLUTELY NEW.
I made a list of things I love~
- Rain, cinema, poetry and black tea
- Laughter and tears
- My baby and furbabies
- Mysteries of the Universe
- The Stars and the Moon
- Music and connecting
- Sex, Dancing, Meditation
- Serendipitous meetings and long kisses
- Experiencing deep feelings of love and longing
- Twinflame energy and soulmate stuff
Why don’t you make a small list too? It will help you understand your vibration.
Make mistakes, with love, with life. Without mistakes there is no growth and Leo understands this most of all. Live life on your terms, speaking your unique truth and make no apologies. None at all.
