August 21st we are going to see a solar eclipse like no other. We live in an era where the Goddess (in all her many forms) has been walking to and from on the earth and in the heavenly places to show us she is not dead. She truly lives. After thousands of years of patriarchy authoritarians, from churches to politics, the Divine Feminine is rising in strength and grace.
Of all the zodiacs, I can’t think of any other that would roar quite like this one. With each sign we have both masculine and feminine. In the case with Leo, we have a powerful couple represented with Lion (king of the jungle) and Lioness (mother of us all). She is the hunter, the mother, and the chooser of her mate. She protects, she feeds, and she roars! Hell hath no fury like a lioness scorned! She represents the divine wisdom of the power couple. While the male does fight and protect his pride, the lioness is cunning and multitasks as she surveys her surroundings. She won’t let her cubs go unprotected and her sister lionesses will aid her as the family they are.
When the full moon eclipses the summer sun, the winds will calm and the breeze will cool. It will be that eerie feeling that someone is watching you, maybe it’s the lioness. The Divine Feminine, Luna, takes center stage to reveal the power of the Lioness. In an age of male dominance we look to the Goddess to guide and show us her fierce resolve. If you’re a female Leo be prepared to let your voice be heard and your actions be seen. Luna will guide you and take the heat off.
If you’re rising sign is Leo, take special note to how you’re presenting yourself to the world. Take this time to cultivate your inner Lioness and follow the guidance of your spirit. Maybe it’s time you step out of the shadows and embrace your rising sign for the goddess she is. This could be a time of great awakening for you, a time to walk in the sunlight and let your golden crown be seen and your authority to be known.
If your Venus is in Leo, this could be a time for you to pay close attention to the life partner you’re choosing. Your Venus is how you love and if you love like a lioness then more power to you as you remain selective in choosing a mate. Don’t settle for anything less than a king you can proudly stand next to.
If your moon sign is Leo, then this could be a time to use caution. While this moon is overshadowing the Leo sun, she is known as Lilith the Black Moon. Lilith shines her dark cloak with a reflection that shows you who you truly are. In the beginning, darkness was upon the face of the earth. Lilith is our birth into this life and her fierce dark flame rises high in the sky, along with all the female deities that correspond to her. Kali, Freyja, The Morrigan, Pele, and many more. These are the Kick-Ass Goddesses and their time is here and now.
Now, more than ever before, we live in a time where we can be ourselves. We have more liberty to live out loud than ever before. The Goddesses are depicted as beauty in artistic forms that line the museums of our world, but where do we see the manifestations of the strength of the Goddess in our current times in society? It’s time she makes herself known and she does so through you.
There are many faces to the Goddess and our mystical guide, Jess is teaching a year long course to introduce you to the Goddesses of the nations. Join us as we quest across the continents to revive their legends.
Many Moon Blessings,
