The sun, the heart pump of our solar system - pump heart of our beings. That which makes life possible, that which radiates heat, blazing big bold and brazen.
Fires that fuel, fire as fuel - blood fuel, heart fuel.
Leo holds the sun at its heart, is the sun’s home. This power, this magnetic velocity, this enigmatic, hard to directly see, is to be held, heard from heart.
We all have Leo somewhere in our chart, showing a part of life - an area of existence where we wish to shine, radiate, and reverberate with magnitude.
And even when Leo is under cover, covert, fearful of its own brilliance it none the less drags attention towards it.
The Sun is magnetic, all of the planetary orbits are in relation to the sun, so even if in hiding, Leo lures, draws and demands to be seen, to have an attentive audience.
Within the year, Leo prowls the pinnacle, mane tossing, tail swishing, capturing the final flare of the Sun’s radiance before it turns - pivots and begins descending toward the dark, the deepening dark half of the year.
Holding fort, holding ferocity the last flare, capturing the jubilance of light living while it can.
Ultimate maximum poise, the King of the wild world the powerful prowler, Leo Lion Sun Centre.
Complexed Leo is complicated. Archetypally interrupted is the desire to shine, to be seen, radiate warmth and be received gets distorted. However underhand, underground, hooded and hidden Leo lives within you.
If you recognise yourself here, stay with the Lion - find a way to courage - ‘le coeur’ - the heart where Leo resides and rules, the pump, the power. Not power over but power as hot radiance, radiance for existence in and of itself, for itself.
