New Moon in Leo invites light

By Cal Garrison, a.k.a. Mother of the Skye 

This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the Light of a newly birthed Leo Sun, and a brand new Leo Moon. With a double dose of Leonine energy vibrating in the ethers I think we’d do well to talk about the sign, and give ourselves a chance to reflect upon what it really means.

My Mum was a Leo. She displayed all of the best and worst qualities of the sign. While she required tons of attention, and had what I call a regal streak, at the same time, she had a heart of gold and gave herself fully to people in need. This is the crux of the Leo lesson; half the time they need all the light to shine on them, and the rest of the time they are clear about the fact that it’s their job to be a channel for it.

Aside from my mother, Mick Jagger, Madonna, and Bill Clinton are three Leos that come to mind right off the bat. Each one of them displays the egoistic side of the archetype to a T. Loaded with talent and their own brand of charisma, they shine like the sun, in a public way. Their gifts have drawn to them fame, fortune, and tons of recognition. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with bathing in the light of one’s own reflection, but because it is easy to become addicted to it, that response wears thin, and disintegrates over time.

The deeper and more spiritual expression of the Leo frequency shows up in the person who wakes up to the fact that all of this power and glory is not about them. The light that they attract so easily is meant to flow through them. The less they need it to spotlight their own greatness the more they begin to realize that they are just here to bring it on in and allow it to flow out into the world so that others can be part of the experience and feel a little bit of that grace and illumination as well.

With the New Moon in Leo, and the sun holding space for the higher forms of light that come through in the early degrees of this sign, it behooves all of us to remember that for the next month we are all part of a carrier wave that could turn the world around. All of us are beams of pure white light. It is no big deal; it’s just the way things are.

Whatever form that takes, let it shine through and share it freely, with everyone you meet – in that way maybe together, instead of needing any of it to reflect on us, we can light up the world with love, truth, beauty, trust, harmony, and peace. Let me leave you with that thought and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
