MARS into LEO (July 20 – Sept 5): Play Time – Show Time – Heart Time… a Roaring Summer!

20 Jul

Hey friends,
feeling like play play play?
MARS crosses the ‘Creativity Point’ (as I call it) from CANCER to LEO today, July 20, yayyy!
And guess what?
Fiery LEO is a better playground for MARS than sensitive CANCER in the last weeks since early June where it might have gotten a bit ‘claustrophobic’ for the Martian journey – the ‘warrior’ Archetype needed some active outlets in the fields of caring, self care (that was me, with my Summer cold), and perhaps literally indoor / home action / work (rather than anger and home violence even). Did you do some Spring / early Summer cleaning and purging (riding the cosmic waves of MARS – PLUTO early July, and of the CAP – CAN ‘Powerhouse’ Full Moon on July 8)? I did, since I couldn’t leave the house due to that cold. Might as well use the energy in a good way…

YEP, double fiery now, with fiery MARS in fiery LEO, until Sept 5. A sizzling Summer. Maybe also more dry / drought / wildfire scenarios, sadly…
More LEO Fire to come soon: The SUN enters LEO on July 22, New Moon in LEO to follow, on July 23, and the SUN will pass MARS on July 26 – definitely a ‘Hot Spot’ week!

The MARS shift into LEO gives a boost of strength and confidence.
LEO seems like a fun and dynamic place for MARS to be in, and can nicely heat up the Summer with renewed passion. Caramba!

It brings out the macho or macha in us who wants to strut, play, and dance, and show his / her colours. An originally creative impulse is certainly fun, yet it can easily turn into ego gratification drives. Watch out for those.

MARS in LEO until early Sept activates for you as part of one of the LEO ‘mini generations’…:

  • PLUTO (for the PLUTO in LEO boomers, born June 1939 – Aug 1957):
    Could get a bit intense if you run into power conflicts with others. Rather use the energy to bravely check in what’s going on in deeper, core issues, why is there such a charge around being important, being seen and loved?
  • SATURN (for the 3 generations with SATURN in LEO, born Aug 1946 – Sept 1948; Sept – Dec 1975 + June 1976 – July 1978; July 2005 – Aug 2007):
    Where you might ‘usually’ experience limitations, reservations, or even fear of expressing yourself freely MARS kicks ass, and says: Just do it!
  • For all of us with LEO AC, SUN, MOON, or planets MARS gives a boost of energy, and can make you feel bolder. Put yourself out there!

I trust your co-creativity sky-rockets, and you are super inspired these days – straight from the Heart. Show your Colours. Be YOU!
Access the LEO solid warmth-of-heart, and creative power in the area of life where early LEO is in your chart!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!
