Welcome to our New Moon in Leo, 3:41 PST July 26, 2014.
This is a big month for service to self-growth. Leo is about self-love in the highest sense. Loving ourselves so much that we shine brightly for all the world to see. Completely full of ourselves, not in a selfish, prideful way, but really basking in our own beauty and power. When we allow our inner beauty to shine, the world becomes a bright, shining, beautiful powerful place for everyone.
Allow your creativity to flourish and your vision to expand. Follow your heart. Be courageous. It can take courage to be bold and stand in your power. Sovereignty is a word my friend Brett uses for Leo. He talks about this moon cycle on his page about The Moon Game. Just scroll down until you find Leo. You can also find more information over at Mystic Mama. I know it takes extra time to click over to another site and read more, but I highly encourage you to head on over there. The post about this Leo New Moon is packed with information and insight.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that a visiting friend took me on a Flying Trapeze adventure yesterday. We went to Emerald City Trapeze. Holy Moly. There aren’t a whole lot of safe ways to tackle fear, but this is definitely one of them. I was terrified and felt super brave. It’s so great to do things that help us feel courageous. Jumping off a small platform, high up in the air, gave me a taste of the courage I need to tap into in the coming month as I set intentions of really going for it in my life and new business in a big way. I have already given notice at my work and trust that the Universe and my own power are my safety net. Even if I fall I won’t hit the ground.
I will also be tapping into my creativity as I spend more time writing, playing music and creating recipes. I have been inspired, both by a friend’s cookbook writing adventure and recent outings to several fine vegan restaurants in Seattle and Philadelphia. There are many uncharted territories in macrobiotic gourmet cooking.
I started this year of writing about my New Moon intentions back in October with a post called Playing with the Moon. It’s been fabulous. You can join any time. I will just keep recommending it. I love exercises that are simple and powerful and connect me with the cycles of nature. If you have any questions, just let me know. I would love to help you get started.
