Today, the Sun, North Node and the asteroid Athena come together in the sign of Leo. This has various levels of meanings, but we’ll focus on the transformational and energetic level here.
We’re being called to find our inner feminine warrior – a warrior who is wise and seeks peace first and is a powerful force for doing what’s right and protecting one another. This energy within us all is one who weaves together all the different beams of light, songs of the hearts, strands of many colors and each of us with our unique and beautiful soul purposes, gifts and colors of our beings into one tapestry. This energy, in combination with the energies of transformation, seeks to bring together all that is unique and beautiful AND the way we are all connected and one from the one source of Love.
Today, the Sun in Leo brings us transformation. Transformation from the depth of our entire being and everywhere else in the cosmos. These energies are transforming Mother Earth, too. The Sun shines light on what we will be letting go of, harvesting, in order to make room for love. Pure and simple – love.
The direction we’re heading in is to transcend our submissiveness to and passive acceptance of believing that appearances and what’s on the surface are what’s true about life. This transformation is about looking, feeling, seeing, hearing, smelling, and sensing on deeper levels of TRUTH and love. The transformational energies are literally cutting through the illusion of the third dimensional world we’ve been experiencing and wherever we give up our power and thinking for ourselves from our hearts. We can no longer turn a blind eye or heart to the things in the world that are not from love, and therefore, not truth. This is part of the reason things have felt so challenging for us. We’re cleansing, clearing out, and seeing the illusion. Which can feel disorienting and give us headaches and make it hard to sleep because these changes literally rock our world.
As we clear out our inner and outer clutter, we make space in our lives for love to replace what we’ve let go of. We’re making our own garden fresh, clean, and cleared of harmful weeds. We’re preparing it for the visions and beauty we’ll plant. Imagine you’re planting seeds of love that will grow into a garden of flowers, plants, vegetables, herbs and literally our world, with roots planted in soil that’s pure and filled with the nutrient of love.
As you feel yourself going through the process of releasing fears and pain, fill those spaces with love. Love, forgive and accept yourself. In so doing, you’ll be able to love, forgive and accept others in a new way that comes right from your heart, rooted in love.
The Moon for Lammas is in Pisces – dreamy, floaty, watery, feeling Pisces. And the asteroid Chiron in Aries is conjunct the Moon today.
The meaning of the Pisces Moon today is one of my favorites. It’s the idea of light splitting into many colors through a prism. It reminds us that unity is the relationship between the One and the Many. That while we’re all connected through light and love, we’re also individual beams of many colors of light and that love comes in many colors and forms.
Chiron in Aries today is all about the sustaining power we as individuals receive from our connection with the oneness.
This is also about compassion, forgiveness and recognizing the Soul in all life. Chiron is a bridge, a maverick and where we share wounds and healing. Moon in Pisces conjunct Chiron in Aries signifies a time of finding and expressing compassion and forgiveness to ourselves and one another as we move through these challenging times of transformation, truth coming out, the hard process of letting go of old beliefs and coming together in harmony and love, forgiveness and sharing our true beauty. This blending of energies is about sharing the joy as we shed fears and pain and embrace one another in forgiveness, compassion and divine love.
This Sabbat is about self-revaluation as human beings. We’re beginning to realize we’re not a popular ideal, but that we’re human. We don’t have to pretend to be something we’re not, and that we’re being given the gift of seeing the truth of our brilliantly bright, wise, colorful, loving souls and that we can create a human life that expresses THAT truth, not a persona to hide behind.
The energy combinations of this Lammas are shouting to us that we need to speak up on behalf of Mother Earth and all her children. Animals, plant life, water, air, the land, human children, the sky and the atmosphere. All the things of this Earth including our human children.
All the Leo energy right now is not only a pathway to love, it’s also a pathway to our courage. That courage and love will take us into beauty, joy and a safe, loving place for our children – no matter their age – and all the life we share this Earth with.
May this time of Lammas be blessed, and support you as you walk your path of growth and truth. Blessed Be.
