LEO AND THE SUN

“Both light and shadow are the dance of Love.” Rumi

 We have three levels of astrology as far as we know at this time: Traditional astrology which most people use, esoteric astrology which is meant to become the predominant astrology of the Aquarian Age, in full swing by the Age of Capricorn and a third level of astrology called Hierarchical Astrology. Since few people are vibrating that high yet we know very little about it, but we do know the planetary rulers which shift as we evolve. The idea behind the different levels is that as humanity begins to vibrate on higher, more conscious, more awake levels, so the meanings of the planets shift and vibrate with us. Old meanings no longer fit; we feel like we’ve “outgrown our horoscope.” The one planetary rulership which remains the same on all three levels is the Sun with Leo.

The symbol for the Sun – seen below – is the circle with a dot, one of the oldest symbols known to man. It can be found on cave walls and sacred rock formations all over the world. Its meanings are as infinite as its relationship to Leo: the circle of life, vitality, prana, the heart of our Universe, the center of our solar system without which none of us would exist in physical form. It is the void and existence within the void. It is everything and nothing; me in the center with God all around. God in the center of me. God is Love and Leo rules Love. Leo with its love of life, its bounding joy in the sun, its need for playfulness and remembering that life is not always serious but IS always about Love. As we shift into the hot “dog days” of summer it’s interesting that in fact, we are shifting into the sign of cats, not dogs! Nothing plays like a cat, then curls up in the sun with the tip of its tail the dot in the center of life itself. 

Everyone: Enjoy a cat; they know.
