Strength tarot image

It’s time to own your power.

The Leo new moon on August 14th is a powerful change agent, encouraging you to take risks and control your destiny. Be courageous! Think and act as those born under the astrological sign of Leo do: take charge, own your creative power and passionately pursue your vision from a place of confidence knowing you are meant to be a leader.  Use A Little Magic If you want to use a little magic with this new moon and bring your unique world view into reality, set some simple and clear goals. Intention is an effective and powerful tool. Sit for a moment and write a list outlining your wishes for the next month. Your wishes will have the greatest chance of success if your goals are in alignment with the cosmos and some Leo attributes: be direct, confident, independent, and energetic.  Seek Community Support Leo, the lion is part of a pride, he knows you can accomplish more with community support. Share your power by being loving, supportive, encouraging, and loyal to those around you. When you share your ideas you generate excitement and enthusiasm within your community. If there are any nay sayers who are part of your tribe, it’s time to give them the boot and to recognize who is truly supporting your vision. Surround yourself with people who will encourage and support your abundance and success in this world. Take Action In the coming weeks you might take a cue from one of the queens of tarot and make this Leo new moon magic work to your advantage. Think and act as the: Queen of Swords — Use your communication tools and the power of persuasion. Research. Analyse. Write it all down. Defend it. Have a spine and champion your cause (but don’t talk it to death). Speak your truth. Teach it. Queen of WandsFormalize your list of goals and take action accordingly. Be persistent. Get to work. Use raw energy and stamina. Where are you directing your energy? Queen of Cups — Use heart-forward communication. Be patient, compassionate, and kind. Queen of Coins — Have a gathering. Be visible. Be social. Attract some attention. Be generous. Have some fun!

Meditate on the Strength Tarot Card In tarot, the astrological sign of Leo is represented by the Strength tarot card. As you think of ways to utilise Leo energy in the coming weeks try meditating with the Strength tarot card. In a nutshell: There is femininity and sensitivity to the Strength tarot card and it deals with themes of power, control, patience, acceptance, virtue, and confidence. Many tarot cards that represent Strength show a cultured woman who is taming a ferocious lion with her hands. This woman isn’t scared, she’s patient, gentle, loving even when presented with adversity. The Strength card serves as reminder that some battles are your own and other people cannot help you. The woman in the image relies on her own instincts; she has a backbone and stands alone with her own coping strategies. We all stand alone at some point and have to face our fears head on. This card advises you to: be patient, persistent, and to be true to yourself. Stand on your own two feet with your head up and your heart out, and use the simple tools of self-love, self-acceptance and self-reliance to create the self-confidence you desire and the change you want. You can achieve anything. I know you deserve whatever it is you want to create. If you would like to learn more about how to make this Leo energy work for you in your life, please join me at What’s Upstairs this Sunday, August 16th from noon until 3 PM for some magical tarot readings.

Solar Eclipse + New Moon: Using your power to tell it like it is

Thursday, October 23rd promises to pack a punch with a solar eclipse and an extra powerful (and emotionally charged) new moon you can use to go deeper in order to explore your relationship with yourself and others; you have the potential to emerge from this experience feeling cleansed, purified and ready to initiate something powerful. Are you ready to communicate your truth to the world? Are you ready to sing your song? You are now in a place where you can make an innovative mark on the world. So, be bold and be brilliant because whatever you set in motion with this new moon has the potential to stay with you for a long time.

In order to move forward from a position of strength you will have to get in touch with what is holding you back. You are going to have to expose some hidden truths. Creative and emotional energy come from the same source. You cannot be fully present living your dream if you are stuck somewhere in the past putting a lot of emotional energy into situations that did not go your way. Sometimes the emotional work that is required of you involves a mirror. When you look at your reflection, what do you see? Are you someone who uses your emotional and mental power in a meaningful and constructive way or is your energy wasted exploring old wounds that are never allowed to heal because you keep picking at the scab? How does hanging onto emotional wounds hold you back from being who you truly are? How can you show some accountability with how you have chosen to communicate your truth so far? What do you receive when you give up control? What do get when you say you are not a victim of circumstance?

Sometimes healing wounds from the past is about compromise and sometimes healing wounds from the past is about letting go. Only you will know what decision is right for you and you will be making this decision from a deep and heartfelt place.

Your own psychic senses will be amplified at this time and will allow you to make decisions from an intuitive place if you trust your instincts. Once you decide which relationships you want to take with you into the next phase of your life, your life vision will have space and the freedom to fly.

If you want to know how you can better use the power of the solar eclipse and the energy of the new moon to create something bold, original and meaningful to your own life, join me this Thursday at What’s Upstairs from 6 till 9. I will be doing tarot readings that explore this very topic.
