Leo Decan III – Love or War

According to the traditions of Tarot, Mars rules this third Decan of Leo. Leo is a fixed fire sign and Mars rules the element of fire which encourages heat, struggle, aggression, and power in this 10 day Decan which starts August 12.

The energies of being rigid in one’s belief system and not backing down, unfortunately, are being tested during this time period, from August 12 – August 22, 2017, as Mars rules this heated time of year. We are asked to decide on acting from a place of LOVE or from Fear.<>

Coherence and Achievement of the people, rather than the leadership, was indicated by the last Aquarian Full Moon eclipse of August 7, 2017, so this also flavors the following Decan. When a Leo Sun faces down an Aquarian Moon, there is a conflict between the WILL of the the leadership and the people.

The Tarot card associated with this decan is the 7 of Fire, which traditionally indicates struggle, and on my cards is a skunk who needs to make a decision; “Do I spray or do I go?” We are on the brink of that decision now.<>

In the traditional Toth Tarot, the path of Fire cards eventually leads to Oppression, as the 10 of Fire Tarot card, yet, there are three steps in between which are Swiftness, Strength and Unification in the face of adversity. Does this indicate #Persistence? I believe so!

The most powerful astrological event happening this year, the US Total Solar Eclipse, occurs during this decan at 28* Leo. The Sabian symbol of many birds on a branch, indicates a multiplicity of potentialities of which we are to not become overwhelmed. It’s time to stay focused and rise up in common pursuit of benevolence. <>

Eclipses, historically, have indicated the removal of a leader. Humpty Dumpty may fall, but more importantly, we as horsemen, must discover how to reassemble a unified, cohesive whole once again. // This is to be our next step in the process of progress for ALL in our human spiritual evolution.//

In my 9 Keys Tarot, the Fire suit indicates WILLPOWER which can be the ultimate expression of “power-with” used for the benefit of the greater good, not only one’s personal “power-over”. The steps toward it from the 7, which is Decision, are 8-Coherence, 9-Achievement and 10-Celebration. I believe we will see this by the end of this year.<> We are truly Stronger Together!

When the passions of the 4th Chakra, LOVE, overcomes the lower desires of the Will, 3rd Chakra, we can create a unified peace in the land and Celebrate it with all mankind. May it be so!! Namaste’

“When the POWER of LOVE overwhelms the love of power, the world will know PEACE.” – Jimi Hendrix

Leo Decan I

As the SUN moves into the constellation of LEO July 22, we see the emphasis change from the watery CANCER into the first decan fires of LEO. This is a signal that the recent nurturing period will provide us with enough confidence to surge ahead courageously into the next phase of embodiment of our power. It’s up to us to decide how best to use this fiery energy.

The ancient symbol of this decan is a flaming beacon. A lighthouse, perhaps. As it calls us, we have to focus this attention into something providential for all humanity. Like a rush of blood, this energy flies from our heart into our head, giving us the final boost that propels us to shore. We will soon be tested by fire, in that we must decide to use this energy to move minds forward or retreat to the sidelines burnt by its force.

My advice is to “Go for the GOLD!”. Now is the time to reach for that gold ring, and take the opportunity at this corresponding NEW MOON at 0* Leo, to set dramatic intentions for the next 150 days. As Saturn rules this decan in a fire sign, we see that the projections we make now turn into gold by December 21, when the Sun rules the last decan of Sagittarius. Review what you most need and then commit to manifesting it, now. This is a key period to manifest our deepest desires!

Reviewing the Sabian Symbols of this decan we find the keywords; Ambition, Epidemic, Independence, Quest, Legacy, Hive mentality, Applied Astrology and Revolutionary action. It’s in our best interest to join with others in focusing our intention on heart-centered action. Doing so will bring the fire of revolutionary spirit together in cooperative zeal. We must create a new, passionate movement of exalted ideals that serve all, rather than those with which we exist today.

The corresponding Tarot card in my deck, Five of Fire, depicts 5 bees working together in the spirit of cooperation and the keyword is COMMITMENT. Five is the number of man-kind. Now is the time to rise above our individual needs and work toward a goal which serves the needs of our world-wide society. Individually, we can take this Call to Action to use our voices, joined together into a great r-r-ROAR!
