August 8th-August 14th: Eight Eight the Lion's Gate & New Moon in Leo 🦁

Aug 7, 2021

Eight Eight is the Lion's Gate, an ancient auspicious portal for upgrading frequency of the heart field. This year the New Moon in Leo is spawned right  in this super charged vortex, rich with creative fertility and the wisdom of the heart. 🦁♌🌟

Sun and Moon embrace each other to create the trajectory of this royal lunar cycle. Play, paint, dance a ritual to sing you through this month till they meet again in Virgo.

Did you know that recent scientific research shows that the human heart has its own neural network similar to the brain's? Yes, the heart can think! But we knew that...

Though we now roll in the deep folds of Leo's Summer fullness, a change is coming. The annual peak of the Perseids rains its silent fireworks on the Twelfth. Early morning is best for catching the culmination which can sometimes display 60 flares a minute!

The meteors'  burning embers flame out approximately fifty miles above the Earth's surface but a fine residue of iron filaments falls into the atmosphere and as we in breathe this invisible element, our bloodstream is charged with increased will force. We begin to contemplate the practicalities of Autumn.

And a gentle cooling begins, mostly felt at night, leading toward the onset of Fall two months hence. Venus has moved into Virgo and calls us to contemplate more detailed plans and begin to wake from dreamy summer days.

But stay in the heart mind as well. Recall Summer's regency and the warm wisdom of play and camaraderie as you move through the rest of the year.

We are being inundated with Aquarian/Uranian energies right now..Two full moons in Aquarius bookending this Leo New Moon, Uranus square Saturn in Aquarius all year... Jupiter retrograding back into Aquarius. 

So the pull from the future is crackling! The challenge is to remain heart-centered and not be dislocated by new information, new technologies, shocks to the systems that are breaking down.

They are breaking down so we can break through… together.
