Full Moon in Leo
Don’t ask what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is
people who have come alive.
~ Howard Thurman
Leo is a powerful and dynamic energy that drives our determination to shine in the world. It is the flame that lights up our self identity. Often people will hide who they are by being and doing what they think they ‘should’ do. They don’t shine as brightly as they could as they try to please parents, peers, and spouses. We often pay more attention to the expectations of others than the passionate desires in our own hearts. Leo relishes in expressing its creative will and like the King and Queen of the jungle, it takes pride in its accomplishments, has confidence in its decisions and joy in its actions.
For You: This Full Moon is saying that it is time to find what lights you up and then fan that flame until it illuminates your entire being. Let your own passionate enthusiasm direct your life. Ask yourself what makes you the most happy? What activity moves you into ‘flow’, that easy peaceful feeling where time disappears. When do you feel confident? Now that you have identified that inner light, ask yourself what you are willing to do to experience it more often in your life? What changes do you need to make? Make a commitment to create space and time in your life to be who you are and live the life you have imagined.
