New Moon in Leo
Sun in Leo
Fire erupts from
Water’s cool embrace.
Flames of liquid light
Reaching out from healing
I claim the healing
That flows organically.
I claim the strength
That moves from the Source.
I claim the life that
That pulses with every
I claim the wholeness
That was my birth rite.
I claim the Goddess and
God that create within me.
Let the healing begin
In waters under darkened
Breathe in the liquid
Light of rainbow’s hue.
Let is bubble up from you
And let the healing begin
In the flames of Leo’s sun.
The Moon is new today in the astrological sign of Leo. King of the heavens, dynamically charged and demanding attention and recognition. These fires now being applied to the watery nature of a moon that flows with the seeds of catalytic change ripe and ready to re-program them towards the desired goal as the energy builds and gains steam in preparation for the big reveal at the Full Moon on the 18th.
Fire is abundantly represented now, with five of the luminaries wearing the astrological garb of the catalyst:
Sun, Moon and Venus in Leo
Saturn and (at 1:49pm EDT) Mars in Sagittarius
(newly)Retrograde Uranus in Aries
Each of the modalities, or expressions of flow represented:
Cardinal Aries ushering in the seeds of potential and the enthusiastic vision of hope
Fixed Leo standing strong and steady in a blaze of fire that organically transforms and purges what has become dross
Mutable Sagittarius that seeks community and reaches broadly wherever its arrows of active intention set alight a new path
What began as a simple day of the New Moon has now become the recipe for allowing the waters that flame to heal, transform and begin the work of new growth. But, you must be willing to step out of the worry and dread that has permeated much of the worldview lately and set the intention of moving forward, bolstered and prepared for what may still lay ahead. The soothing waters of a correctly heated hot tub soothe achy joint and muscle. And, taking the time to lovingly and purposefully prepare the ambiance of the environment in support of those soothing waters calms the mind and feeds the heart. Settling deeply into the sacred vessel(s); physical body and tub itself- eases the strain of standing and having to fully support the weight accumulated from stress, dis-ease and worry. But, the emergence from this getaway! Ah, that is the sweet spot of choice where you can intentionally arise with renewed hope and energy about how the body can heal and the serenity in outlook. Or, you can arise, distraught that you must leave this sanctuary, dreading the return of ache and stress and undoing all that was released to the healing waters.
This New Moon offers choice at a time when we sorely are in need of feeling empowered, whole and strong. We are not alone in this endeavor. Seek out your family and support systems. Cry, scream, dance, move, write! Let the waters move through you and then allow what does not serve to burn away in the exertion of your will and efforts. We are primed and ready to let the healing begin and the luminaries that move with us are also ready to offer the support and need to navigate this shift in perception.
Wired For Healing Change
Mars (action and assertion) transits into the social sign of fiery Sagittarius, leaving behind the Scorpio’s intensity. And, retrograde Saturn, the great organizer remains in Sagittarius. Let these fuel your actions towards healing as you reach out (Sagittarius) to those closest to you allowing the structure(Saturn) to steady the arrows of your intention as they fly freely moving through the inspirational air that feeds those flexible flames. Uranus, the planet of impulse, electrical discharge and master of the neurological system, stationed Retrograde on the 29th of July in another sign of fire, Aries. Gather that electrical impulse(Uranus) that kickstarts the new and direct it towards a change in your response to enthusiastically (Aries) embraces hope.
The Healing Temple
Many years ago I wrote a pathworking entitled the Healing Temple. I have returned to the space I created on many occasions and have shared its construct with others who were in need of claiming their own space of healing and, more importantly, their active role in creating it. On this night of the New Moon I offer this pathworking to you. Fill it with your intentions, desires and needs and then let it expand to encompass all that you interact with. Your energy will change in in so doing, the seeds of hope and renewal will spread, uplifting all….
