Dark Moon in Leo 2018
The Dark Moon Leo teaches us to respect our true selves and to honour our place in the world.
To risk is to dare… to dare to be unapologetically who we are. To act from the heart, even if this is deemed unacceptable by others.
To dare requires us to be wholly accountable for our actions, to accept consequences.
To dare is to risk loss or heartbreak.
To dare is to be the best person we can possibly be, by following our own inner passion, even if it goes against conventional norms.
Fire can illuminate our truth by showing us what we need to burn away from our life. There is risk working with fire. We may be inclined to burn everything away, without acknowledging what has been destroyed. It’s important to remember that fire cannot fix a problem that we have created for ourselves. We can work with fire to illuminate the underlying cause of our darkness, acknowledge it and heal from it. We can burn away what needs to be eliminated now while maintaining the healthy aspects of an uncomfortable emotion.
The Dark Moon is a time for inner reflections, personal journeys and shadow work. What better time to take stock, to face our deepest fears, to meet and embrace our Shadow side. Communing with our dark self may lead to valuable personal insights. As we shine light on our darkness, we come to a place of healing. The Shadow self is the part of us that reacts from a place of unconscious fear. Once those fears are brought into the light, we can begin the process of healing.
Sit in stillness.
Take several deep breaths and close your eyes.
Visualize a fire in front of you.
Step into the flames and ask yourself what needs to be illuminated.
Acknowledge and accept what the flames reveal, without judgement.
Ask yourself what needs to be burned away.
Acknowledge and allow the flames to consume that which no longer serves you.
When you feel ready, step out of the fire.
Dark Moon Blessings,
