“A tender heart is not a problem to be solved,
but a gift to be honored and protected,
with all of the fierceness of a mama Lioness.”
Well, these are buzzy, Zap Zone days, rich in fiery, electrical energies that can easily stress the body and nervous system if we don’t tend to wellness and wellbeing.
Are you feeling it?
If you’re more sensitive to and aware of subtle (and thus not so subtle) energies, you may have been feeling tired and wired, almost-unbearably edgy, and more scattered as thousands of ideas and insights spark all at once.
These fiery, electrical macro-energy cocktails may also stir the kundalini energy that Gopi Krishna and others have written about. If you’ve had kundalini awakenings or Epically Transformative Experiences that heighten sensitivity, the self-care is even more important.
Or perhaps you’ve seen and heard signs of it around you — it’s been prime Hissy Fits and Tantrum Yoga time as well, as all of those intense energies bubble over and splatter burning juju on anyone and anything within reach.
That being said, we might also be feeling the stirrings and yearnings of the Heart — the powerful heart field and heart of (our) matter — calling to us more loudly and insistently than the more easily ignored whispers.
We can be artless and heartless, or cultivate and express our beautiful Heartistry, and do that well beyond the coming days and weeks.
We’re in a cycle where we’ll have Lùnastal or Lughnasadh — the Gael-inspired early August cross-quarter mid-Summer ‘thin time‘ — plus two Leo New Moons and a full moon in Aquarius with full solar eclipse as well.
These shine against a backdrop of the Fire Trine — a graceful alliance — between Uranus in Aries (ready to go into Yin mode with its station Retrograde), Saturn in Sagittarius (soon to go Yang with its station out of Retrograde), and the North Node, Mars, Sun and various other planetary peeps transiting Leo Country.
If you’ve felt listless or foggy, these coming days may offer a welcome change. The Fire energy can add a bit more fuel to the creative cauldron, Lifeforce energy through the body, and stir the quest for whole-heartedness, too.
Themes for the Leo Mysteries include creativity for creativity’s sake, a dignified and regal bearing, joy (that magical self-facet), the magnanimous and benevolent Lion or Lioness, and whole-heartedness.
In shadow or unconscious mode, we see more egomaniacal, bullying, stage-hogging Divo/Diva or Narci-Narci expressions.
If we intentionally orient towards the themes of the Leo Mysteries, and make smart self-care a priority, we can put this infusion of Lifeforce to good purpose.
We’ll have a bit of help from the essence of Venus delving into the cooling and tenderizing Cancerian waters of Bella Luna, reminding us not to let the Fire become all-consuming. Reminding us that a tender heart is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be honored and protected (with all of the fierceness of a mama Lioness) in ourselves and others.
