The source of stress during these turbulent Leo times stems from not receiving sufficient attention and appreciation. We are carrying heavy loads; trying to resist chaos and inevitable change. At this new moon, we are called to our role in adapting. Do we tend to hold things together? Initiate adjustments? Create systems for coping?
This new moon falls on Sunday, July 23. Focus on these things as it is approaching.
We are not being appreciated. We are invited to be honest about carrying too heavy a load. Our motivation is a resistance to chaos and inevitable change. This is especially true for the fixed signs~ Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. The job of the fixed signs is to hold things together. Here we keep moving. We are dependable. We are powerful. Stubborn. Consider the poignant Sabian Symbol~ "under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man's head". During times of chaos, we remain focused. Steady in the storm.
The cardinal signs are the initiators~ Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Here we love to win. We are active, ambitious and enthusiastic. We lack follow through.
The mutable signs share and disperse the results~ Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. We are fair. We tend to people please and conform to suit that desire. Inconsistent.
But it's those fixed signs that organize, create systems, give structure and keep things moving.
We are looking closely at our role in chaos and working toward following Leo's lead. Let's be people who hold things together. As our carefully laid plans are thrown into chaos, we draw on heart centered warmth and compassion to create a force that keeps rhythm through the storm.
Where are you in this story? And why are we so concerned with being appreciated? We need simply to appreciate ourselves. Gratification and joy are not external issues. Follow us into the Full Moon where we embrace these WINDS OF CHANGE and step more fully into our own magic and power. Through this, our reliance on others will diminish.
Myself and all of my children are fixed signs. We hold things together. Tonight's message is especially potent as we allow some personal chaos, inevitable change, on our journey to balance. Today I am working with palo santo to raise negative vibrations. I'm clutching unakite jasper to help release emotions that are not serving me, amethyst to sooth and protect, rose quartz to open the heart chakra to self love, and aventurine for the harmony I long to find.
