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

Spring Equinox 2013

This week marks the Spring Equinox where the Sun moves into the sign of Aries the Ram. New energies are bursting forth, awaiting expression~ just as sprouts are pushing up the soil toward the sunshine.
The phrase “Ready, Fire, Aim” is appropriate now as Mercury just turned direct on the 17th. Words held back may begin to fly as tongues are loosed. Plans once thought risky may be instigated now. Communication *should* improve however, the Asteroid Hades conjuncts the Sun on Wednesday the 20th as well. Emotional dishonesty and addictive patterns may be brought to the fore- allowing for clear insight, especially around home and security needs. Be ready to honestly face those chains you put on yourself that hold you down.
Thursday the 21st Venus enters Aries, the sign of assertion and the Moon enters fiery Leo, so you could expect to hear refrains of “I am woman, hear me roar…”
The most important conjunction that we’ve felt for a long time, however occurs at 2:17pm Eastern, when angry Mars intersects planet of Chaos, Uranus. Expect the unexpected; fireworks, explosions, possible electrical power outages, satellite malfunctions or flight delays. This energy stirs up radical thoughts and contrary opinions. We could come to new paradigms of understanding especially if the net goes down!
As the next day, Saturday the 23rd, signals the appearance of Asteroid Pallas Athena, great strategist and Goddess of War, I’m thinking that something monumental may be occurring politically which forces the masses toward knee-jerk reactions.
Strap yourselves in, it may be a bit of a bumpy ride~ wheeeeeee!
