Full Super Moon in Leo

There’s a buzz about this weekend’s full super moon in Leo along with questions about whether one should or shouldn’t place their crystals out under this eclipsing full moon. Leo is one of our fire signs in the astrological line up and meeting a roaring Leo under an eclipsing full moon can cause one to shudder. It’s also known as a Blood Super Moon! I don’t know about you but when Leo (lion) and blood are involved in a full eclipsing moon, I shake to the bone. There’s a lot of power there.

I’m not one to buy into tales of fear, though erring on the side of caution is a wise thing to do. We can take wisdom from other famous Leos who have become successful participants in this vast universe. Power house leaders such as Barack Obama, Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, Lynda Carter, and J.K. Rowling can be among those we look to for example of leadership and/or success! How can we harness the power of Leo under this full super moon?

Respect the energy. Leo’s energy can be wild and unfiltered, but at the same time it can be quite the show. Leo is known for its gorgeous mane and reveals to us that our first impressions are important. Put your best foot (paw) forward and look your best! There could be a fight ahead of you and you’ll want to be prepared in every aspect. Sometimes a strong and confident person can effectively shut down an enemy energy before a fight can begin. Be wise and cunning. Leos can blaze through life, but remember those around you. Life isn’t all about us and we should consider the lives around us. A good leader will not forget those around them who need their courageous influence.

Magical people have a long held tradition of wisely selecting crystals to work with under full moons. For this Leo super moon I’m recommending some crystals to heighten that fiery Leo energy along with some protective crystals to balance the chaotic energy of the eclipse.

Orange Calcite

Orange calcite lends its fiery passion for creativity and motivation to change.

Uses: Creativity, energy, acceptance

Affirmations: “I accept the things I cannot change and am motivated to transform the things I can.”

Amphibole Phantom Generators

Amphibole Phantom Generators contain four minerals to support an array of energy healing. Limonite lends it’s yellow hue to these phantom quartz generators with its support for psychic protection. The red hues are from Hematite, a mineral used to support blood energy. When Limonite and Hematite blend together, you begin working with an inner knowing you can sense down to the bones and marrow.

Carnelian Flames

Carnelian carries it’s own kind of fire, as you can see in these hot flames!
When the Full Moon is aligned with some Zodiacs, you can add Carnelian to your altar or grids to maximize the energy. Taurus, Leo, Cancer, and Scorpio are signs with passion that work well with Carnelian, especially in this flame form. Flames represent fire and passion, motivation and energy.

Black Tourmaline

I choose to work with Black Tourmaline for protective energy under an eclipsing moon, because it carries such a grounding protective force.

Black Tourmaline is my favorite gem to work with when it comes to doing shielding work. I can work with this powerfully strong mineral to block out any spiritual spies from ‘seeing’ me or my family.

“Out of sight, out of mind.”

It’s a simple method of being in the shadows where I can be safely out of sight from those who wish to cause me trouble.

Smokey Quartz

Out of all the smokey quartz I have in my magical tool box, my raw double terminated smokey quartz wand is my go-to crystal for transmuting negative energy that may come from different directions. Since this full super blood moon will be eclipsing we should be watchful about the energy that can permeate the spaces around us.

For those who work with the other elements I recommend anointing your protective crystals with black pepper essential oil. Your fiery crystals can be anointed with orange essential oil. After ritual you can cleanse their energy by smudging with sage and placing in a bowl of salt over night. I like to work with herbs as well and sometimes sprinkle dried flowers and herbs over my crystals to balance their energy. Some herbs I’ve used are fresh ground black pepper, lavender, rose petals, and sage.

Magical blessings to you and yours,

Leo Solar Eclipse Bears Witness to the Lioness

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,

Sisterlisa
