This new moon aligns us with our soul purpose because the spiritual task of Leo is to live through the heart.

Sometimes it is quite a surprise to us, just what this heart centered purpose could be.  It is rarely something we have done to satisfy our egos.  This heart centered purpose usually serves others in some way yet makes our own hearts so full we know it immediately. We feel as if we are finally doing what we were mean’t to do. We have finally dropped into our life purpose.

Living through the our hearts takes an enormous amount of courage, an heroic effort.  That is why the astrological symbol for Leo is the lion. A noble, heroic and sovereign being.

Nobility and courage is necessary to undertake becoming sovereign. Sovereign is defined, in this instance, as possessing supreme or Divine authority. Acting in everything with Divine knowledge. Making Divine choices and descisions. First, we all have to confront issues that we would like to forget, deny, or hope would simply go away.  We may have to face unwritten rules that keep us stuck and stagnant. Here is where the courage of Leo the lion is really needed.  Everytime we really face a deep issue, and own it, we can watch it cycle out of our vibration. We feel the triumph deeply with personal empowerment in every cell of our bodies.

To own who we really are, to love ourselves so much that we give ourselves the freedom to be unlikable sometimes because we know intuitively what works and doesn’t work for ourselves. To have strong boundaries and say no, is courageous. To really be seen, warts and all, is a collective goal now. This was always our main task, this was always the major key of the earthdance yet now the promptings and urges from astrological and energetic influences are no longer gentle. We are going there, kicking and screaming or willingly. Our choice.

What if our heartfelt purpose is not what we thought it was? What if we are just trying to fit ourselves into a box that is actually too small?  This is a time for expansion not contraction. This is a time to think and feel outside the box, outside the lines. We may be surprised at what we find in our hearts if we quiet ourselves and walk or swim in nature as a sacred part of our day.

We are finally moving forward now after a long Mercury retrograde period of reflection and clearing out of clutter no longer needed in our lives. Refreshed, we stand open to receive. Be grateful!  Expect miracles over the next few weeks. Things that have been stalled will start to flow, ourselves included!
