We are rocking and rolling in the 28 Days of Love here at The Bliss Institute but that doesn’t mean we won’t be honoring the cycles of the moon and Earth. So here’s to February’s full moon in Leo.
Leo the Lionhearted fire sign are known for their outgoing personality’s and love of the spotlight. I have to say though for someone with a moon in Leo, this sign is more complex then what it may appear to be. Being comfortable in leadership positions does not mean seeking them out. Because of the energy associated with Leo’s others come to them for their confidence and know how. Since Leo’s don’t like to waste their time and have a knack for knowing what needs to be done to complete pretty much anything they often find themselves taking the lead. As a fixed sign, Leo’s are not very open to change. Once that plan is in place they prefer to stick to it and keep things moving because Leo’s are all about momentum. This is also how they tend to approach relationships once they are in they give it their all. Though they won’t believe it’s their fault when their inviting personality may be perceived as flirting. Ask a Leo to really examine their behavior and they will rather reluctantly admit that they do tend to flirt even when they don’t mean to (it just makes life easier and Leo’s are all about ease).
This full moon we are encouraged to examine the one area that Leo’s secretly have a very difficult time with, self-esteem. Hidden underneath all of Leo’s boisterous ways and fun loving soul lies a continuous questioning of whether they are good enough to receive all the light and love that is bestowed upon them. So if you have found yourself questioning your purpose, having imposter syndrome, or nitpicking your physical features it’s time to go within. Seek the sunshine within your self and let your light come from within. Other’s cannot determine your worth although we often believe that they do. Placing their approval of our work, our passions, our relationships shape how we feel about ourselves. It’s not up to them to say whether you are good enough. You must determine that you are worthy. Forgive yourself. If you feel that there is something that you should be or have done be gentle with yourself. Become your friend not your enemy. There’s enough of those that exist in the world around us so be your own champion.
When you begin to see that the contributions that you make to the world are unique and important you can tap fully into the wisdom that you hold. Leo’s are able to make such strides in the world because they are deeply tied to to the solar plexus and sacral chakra. Even when they may doubt their own worth they seldom doubt their intuition. This full moon in Leo encourages us to tap into that sense of power and knowing both internally and externally. Doing so will give you access to the ability to know what is needed to move forward in what you would like to manifest. Leo’s finish what they start and if you have been wanting to make a change use this time to sit down, tap into those knowing centers, and get it done. You are geared towards success with your endeavors. I mean Leo’s aren’t exactly known for not being successful. So make those first moves and expect to achieve what you desire.
While you are working on forgiving yourself perhaps it’s time to examine whether there are other’s that you need to forgive? Has someone hurt you or caused you doubt yourself and what you can do? Release that connection. Forgiveness does not mean that what that person did was right. In fact if you feel that that you do not need to forgive anyone look at it as letting go of your energetic connection to that person. Victory is written in the stars for us at this time if we are willing to deal with our self-esteem issues, forgive ourselves, and tap into our inner truth through the wisdom that we hold.
Let go of any ego or pride that keeps you in situations that are not conducive to your growth or your plan. You may lead the pack but you cannot carry the pack. Everyone has to do their own fare share and sometimes they may not do as much as we would have liked for them to. Release that connection of expectation. Are you doing all that you can? Are you listening to what your inner wisdom is prescribing to you? Then that is enough. It doesn’t matter if it’s simply taking care of your responsibilities for a day or taking a mini me moment where you just breathe for 5 minutes. You are enough and all that you do is enough.
So go out and have fun, be the life of the party, take on that promotion at work, go on that blind date, sign up for a organization, step into the sunlight. Perhaps it’s time to take the first Leo lesson: fake it til you make it and if that doesn’t work just keep roaring until you get what you need.
