On this beautiful Full Moon, allow yourself to shine! The cosmic weather over the next few days is in favour of presentations, performances, and the spotlight – yours, and everyone else’s, too.
Leo is a fixed Fire Sign, aptly represented by a majestic, male lion. Leo is the proud, confident, leader of the pack, and it is exactly this energy that is amplified during the Full Moon. Leo energy brings confidence, energy, and motivation. If you allow this energy to inspire you over the next few weeks, imagine what you’ll be able to accomplish by the time the next New Moon rolls around!
Leo Full Moons are the ideal time to:
Promote, promote, promote! Launch that new offering, new line of products, or new business. People are watching, and the time is ripe for new trends and ideas. Nothing new to offer? No worries – in the time of ever-decreasing attention spans, it’s always a good time to remind people of what you’ve already got on the menu 🙂 Oh, and don’t forget to promote your friends and family on social media as well!
Pay attention! People are watching, and so are you – or at least, you should be. Look around and see what’s new and noteworthy. This is not about being an opportunistic shark, mind you. The golden energy of Leo is more about recognizing other people’s talents, contributions, and causes.
Celebrate others! It’s not all about you, as much as Leo may have you thinking that 😉 The true virtue of Leo is its ability to share the spotlight and to bolster others. If you’re already the confident type, share that gift with someone else who needs it. Think: Who in your circle has achieved something lately? Anyone finish school, get a new job, or complete a creative project?
Practice gratitude. Take that Leo spotlight, shine it on every area of your life, and point out all of the beautiful things that you’re grateful for 🙂 This is the most potent Leo medicine of all! What you appreciate, appreciates you.
I have one more bonus practice to recommend for this Leo Full Moon: Metta Meditation, also known as Loving-Kindness Meditation. This is a beautiful, simple practice that literally gets to the heart of the matter. Lion’s Roar magazine has a short, simple set of instructions that are also perfect for beginners: https://www.lionsroar.com/how-to-practice-loving-kindness/
In the spirit of Leo and loving-kindness, I will leave you with this blessing:
May you be happy
May you be healthy
May you be free
