Esoteric philosophy and your experience tells you that the voice and energy of Leo is loud and commanding, calling you to listen and to see. August is Leo’s time, and this month in this year he is stronger than ever, and he speaks to you with urgency.
It may help you to remember that Leo’s close relationship with Sirius gives rise to a unique alignment of heart and soul that, on Earth, is epitomised in the highest principles of Love and Freedom. Equally importantly, Leo is the light of the soul and as such he is impacting you as the disciple enormously, calling you to see the truth of the new reality and to accept the challenge to serve in the new order that is before you.
Everything that is happening in the turbulent world around you has significance in the context of Leo’s power at this time, at its peak now as the August Full Moon known as the Sturgeon Moon continues to overshadow you.
It is no coincidence that the great fighter for freedom of speech and action, Salman Rushdie, was attacked on the day of the Full Moon as he was about to speak publicly against censorship in the place that is known as the Land of the Free – America; that at about the same time the FBI raided Donald Trump’s home in the Land of the Free in an epic battle over power, ethics, truth and fairness; that in many parts of the Western world the ability to live life as you wish is curtailed through restrictions on the use of water and energy, for example just as your liberty was blocked by Covid measures; that Taiwan’s democratic rights to freedom are being threatened by China; and that Ukrain’s fight for independence is at a critical point as the largest nuclear plant in Europe, situated in Ukraine, becomes the new front line.
Rightly or wrongly, freedom to think and to be is under scrutiny, and the knee-jerk reaction of lawmakers in a crisis often is found to be unhelpful and counter-productive, and will increasingly be so.
Current events can be seen as examples of separateness as well as questions of freedom, whereby the spiritually desirable sense of community cohesion and understanding is undermined by self-interest and illusion. Leo calls for the light of the soul - your light and soul and the light and soul of every person and every nation – to dispel the shadow of separateness and to illuminate and enlighten wherever the light does not enter. As the disciple walking your Way, this is your challenge and also your opportunity, for by so doing in a spirit of unconditional love and humility, your light will grow – and that, of course, is your purpose in being human.
As Salman Rushdie took a stand on behalf of truth and freedom, so will you, as the vision of the new order you know so well and long for is threatened by the forces of denial and fear. You are so close to seeing the civilisation of love, peace and beauty established in the name of all that is good, and in your name too: I promise you, it will come and you will see it, though there may be thunder and lightning from time to time to wake up your sleeping world to the era of great change that is upon them.
Hold fast against an onslaught of illusion and negativity in your human world, and know that by working with the Heart of the Sun in the name of God and all that is good, the revelation of the new truth and the new reality will emerge; know too that you will have played a vital part in its achievement.
This time of Leo is your time and your future, but only if you choose to lead and to change. The time for oblivious sleep is over.
