After Leo comes Virgo. We then begin to bring in the harvest and prepare for Winter. In Libra season, we will enjoy and share the harvest. Scorpio turns it all back into the ground. But, right now it is Leo season. Right now the Summer’s heat is blazing. Life is rich and alive and gloriously abundant. Can you feel that? That is the burning desire to exist!
The fuel that blazes light and heat forth from the Sun can feel like the intention of existence, of LIFE! It is the fire of the desire to engage and celebrate the beautiful and eternal present moment which defines Leo season. The Sun is shining, the raspberries are plump, the tomatoes are ripening, and we may even be considering planting a fall crop! We are in the seasonal cycle of abundance and celebration! Feeling that reflected in our being is an intention of this New Leo Moon.

We could say that it all starts to get darker from here. The days get shorter. Soon it will be back to school. There is an understandable sorrow that can percolate up from these days. The party season will one day give way to the season of clean up! Feeling like we are somehow meant to be eternally happy and joyous, we can feel thwarted if we are confronted with discouraging words, ones we hope are seldom heard…
…But we shall not be thwarted!
Astrologically speaking, this New Leo Moon is in a harmonious trine to Jupiter in Aries all the while Saturn and Mercury are squaring the Nodes of the Moon. Mars and Uranus are conjoined the Moon’s North Node. Jupiter is stationing (to retrograde) while Venus is squaring it…
Translated, now is the time to set our intention to make choices based on whatever is most resonant with that part of us which feels authentic joy and love and radiance. It is in this present moment of choosing, celebrating the warmth of the Sun, where we store all of that abundance in memories made for February musings.
The Sun gives off light and heat, feeding us with its radiance. Where do we shine and warm? How do we radiate in the world? Now is the time to have faith in our own unique potential and to courageously move forward in our highest and happiest choices.
We are up against the antiquated structures of the world and the lens of projection. All of the ancient historical trauma we have ever felt regarding the expressing of our authentic self may be arising from our unconscious. It’s as if our ancestors are asking us to courageously and lovingly seek a breakthrough in remembering the simple natural truths of how to co-create happily and sustainably with all life on this planet.
Can we do it? It takes courage, it takes a willingness to change. It takes being really, really honest with the truth of who we are. That is worth celebrating. This New Cycle is about aligning with our authentic joy. The raspberries are ripe! That alone is worth a smile!
