August New Moon in Leo

Leo the lion- king of the jungle

New Moon in Leo – Leadership and the Ancestors

Leo is the sign ruled by the Sun. This is our Star, and where light and power enters our birth charts.

It’s the fifth sign of the zodiac and this New Moon falls exactly on the star called Regulus in the heart of Leo, the lion. The lion is, of course well known as King of the Jungle, and Leo is the sign of kings, of born leaders.

Wherever the sign of Leo is in our own birth charts, is where we are born to shine!

Leo is the natural 5th house in our birth chart. Houses are areas of life’s activities, and the 5th is one of the most enjoyable. It is love affairs, our children and our creativity-what we give birth to.

Leo rules the heart- its our coeur- our courage, and being wholehearted.

The metal is gold and we have as a nation witnessed the delight at seeing Team GB win gold medals in abundance.

Gold in Aura-Soma colour is our Incarnational Star, the first cell in our body.

The Ancestors

In Vedic astrology this New Moon falls in the lunar mansion called Magha, and governed by the deities called the Pitris, the Divine Ancestors.

So for the next 30 days we are all being asked to connect with our Divine heritage. This is also our family in this lifetime, as well as those from our past.

Astrology can show all of our relations in our birth chart. Plus the lowest point in the chart known as the IC, the cusp of the 4th house shows us our ancestors as a whole.
Knowing the traps you have come to resolve in this lifetime is all important. And so is the discovery of the soul level gifts that lie hidden underneath, waiting to be embraced.

Chuck Spezzano says that “We are the shining culmination of all of our ancestors and their striving. Realise that the traps, inherited by you at conception, can now be changed.”

Your Soul’s Purpose- To Heal The Timeline

It is no accident that we have the parents we have. On a soul level we chose them in order for our soul to evolve. The soul has a wisdom far beyond this lifetime, and healing our timeline is vital for us to move ahead spiritually. I recognise that it’s easier said than done, but if you have any planet between 24 degrees of Leo and 7 degrees Virgo this is a part of your soul’s purpose.

One way to do this is by having a card reading with this intention. Chuck Spezzano’s cards in the Enlightenment Pack, or The Healing Cards are tools I use with clients every day.

Choose 3 cards to represent the trap you have inherited, the healing way through and the gift that you came in with to free your ancestors and change the pattern.

Alternatively and far more effectively, have a coaching session with me.

So this month the focus is on healing our ancestral story.

Royal Fun

Olympic Opening Ceremony 2012. The Queen and James Bond

Regulus is also connected to Raphael – The Healing Archangel, and play and laughter are of course the most natural healers.

We have had a huge amount of fun this last month or two in the UK. The Queen has been very much in the news this year, first her Jubilee and then at the Olympics. This wonderfully funny video sequence seen at the opening of the Olympics shows that the Queen really does have a sense of fun. Not surprising as her moon is in Leo.

Mercury and Uranus- Creative Genius

The last of the 3 amazing aspects of Mercury to Uranus is on 18th August. This is all important as its connected with the energy of the New Moon.

If you’ve had a strong desire for change this month, keep tuning in to your higher mind. Uranus trine Mercury is genius, so ideas that have come to you will be inspired.

Mars and Saturn

These two planets are close together, but Mars just passed over Saturn before the New Moon. Mars is our drive and life force energy, the Pioneer, and Saturn keeps the brakes on. However when combined they give determination not to give up. Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn, so we will succeed if we persist. Saturn is also the planet best known to have a depressing effect.

yoganandaHow do you get through when the going gets tough?

I hit a low place this week, so chose to start reading a book I have had for many years. Called ‘The Autobiography of a Yogi’ by Paramahansa Yogananda, it’s a true story involving many miracles and is written in a wonderfully humourous style. It has uplifted my spirits, expanded my mind, and I highly recommend it. This book introduced many westerners to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga

“You are walking on the earth as in a dream. Our world is a dream within a dream; you must realize that to find God is the only goal, the only purpose, for which you are here. For Him alone you exist. Him you must find.” Yogananda

Healing Your Birth Story- Win Your Heart Back and Reclaim Your Power

heart and handsWeekend Workshop for a maximum of 8 people. August 25th/26th. Hammersmith, London
There are 5 good reasons to do this workshop

  • A workshop is the fast track. It propels you forward much faster than traditional therapy.
  • This is a unique workshop. Your birth chart is laid out on the floor, and people are chosen to represent key planets.
  • The processes of each person will have relevance to you, so it’s a rich experience.
  • It is a memorable workshop as the learnings are embodied in your physical being. You see, and step into your birth chart.

There are just 4 places left, and just for subscribers I have extended the earlybird to August 20th, so book now if you’d like to make major shifts in your life and leap forward this summer.

We all have a soul promise- we chose to be here at this time of transition in the world. We promised to hold the light, to lead the way.

However many of us hold unconscious memories of past traumas and persecutions from other lifetimes, or passed down from our ancestors.
These re-occur in this lifetime as painful experiences where we moved off our centre and lost our heart.

These unhealed -and often long forgotten and unconscious -stories stop us moving forward in our lives.
This unique workshop is designed for a small group of up to 8 people, and is ideal if you want to make a major shift in your life.

When have you been a winner?

All of us have won something in our lives. And of major importance is that, once we have won, that vibration stays with us. We have all been heroes in our lives. Sure it may not be a Gold medal, but the smallest prize, the recognition that we have done well, is to be treasured.

My best selling report is Karmic Insight. It has rave reviews because it is concise and very accurate! It focuses on Saturn but also your strengths.

Leadership nowadays is a team effort. Without the support of your team, its a real struggle to lead.
A little known fact is that, like it or not, after a while all teams you lead or belong to, will reflect the family you were born into!
