With the Moon near wise asteroid Hecate in Leo, what better time to honor the most potentially self-actualized sign of all? Leo the Life Enhancer, Leo of the Noble Demeanor, Leo Of Love, Leo of Light.
Seriously. Leo is ruled by Apollo – the Sun God – and around whom other other planets/deities revolve. The symbol for Leo is the Lion – King/Queen of the Jungle. Try to subvert that regal paradigm and you’ll know all about in a hurry. And yet they can be unbelievably kind to creatures smaller or less powerful than them.
The renowned Leonic glamor is not something they do out of desperation to be accepted or liked – it is pure raw primordial life force – their signal to a sometimes hostile world that they’ve got it together no-matter-what, that they are fuqing fierce and not to be fuqed with, that they respect beauty and shizz all over drab mediocrity. A Leo does not insult a gathering by turning up anything less at full fab throttle; Leo makes an entrance, all brazen heat & dazzle, raising the Qi of the Whole Room.
Leos know that it is an insult to life to be anything other than at maximum Awesome and they’re as generous and forgiving re your faults as they are of their own. And unlike some people, the reverence and love Leos have for the Arts, Music, Cinema, Theater etc is deeply felt, in every nano-fibre of their being. As Leos finally shake off the final vestiges of any Love Zombie coma (1997 to 2012 was a hard era for our Leo) we declare today RESPECT FOR LEOS day.
