Igniting The Creative Spark – Full Moon in Leo

Leo, the lively lion. I personally love Leo. I have affinity with felines.

Just like Leo, we are spirited exuberant creatures. Just like the lion, we are creatures who also want to play, have fun, enjoy life and express our nature out in the wild.

The lion is pure energy, dynamism and steady constant fire. The lion carries with him the stable power of fire, vigour and passion. The lioness is exuberant, radiant, mighty and confident.

They like showing off their confidence, because it is authentic. They like to position their influence in the mysteries of the wild kingdom. They are lovely, but dominant. They are frisky and full of fun, but also powerful and redoubtable.

The lion knows more than any other creature in the wild, what they really are and what their power can do, something that humans in some cases don’t know or don’t appreciate.

And because the lion keeps true to who he is, he will always fight for him. She will always defend herself, and place herself higher (like most felines do). The lion loves who he is, and wants others to recognise and admire his mightiness.

He will often go out and cause turmoil to other species. She will go and hunt, showing off her success, so that others know what she can do.

And so, the lion represents the expression of our own identity, the need for recognition and the urge to position oneself as a powerful unique creative being.

Through the ideal manifestation, this expression will be authentic and real, carrying with it the raw pure fire of life existence.

Through the negative manifestation, this expression can be fake due to the inability of the individual to accept their real self-identity, mirroring the identity of the social context of its environment and reproducing a copy of something else rather than who the person really is.

Leo is about expressing our own unique creativity, which comes from the fire within each person’s heart. The Sun rules Leo. Leo and the Sun are associated with the heart.
