Cross Quarter Aug 1 Full Moon Takes us Into the Leo Gateway
CROSS QUARTER AUG 1 FULL MOON TAKES US INTO THE LEO GATEWAY
I went out to watch the moon rise last night...and the orange pinky salmon glow of the Lunar Disc and the sky had me looking at the solar and lunar alignments for this Full Moon. Every Full Moon creates an "opposition alignment gateway" where one celestial body rises as another sets. Moon Rises in the East as Sun sets in the west plays out every full moon evening. On this moon, the horizon rising spot was well south of east (a natural part of the Lunar Standstill Cylcle alignment fluctuations).
Finding the moon so far South of East, coupled with seeing many cardinals (the red birds) pinged me to pay attention to the cardinal directions - and the seasonal cross quarter point - the "southwest" qualities of the seasonal marker as we tip from high solstice to halfway point to equinox. Tipping point!
That very south of east rise of this "out of bounds" moon had me looking at my sky charts, and looking what other celestial players were up in the sky with the Sun & Moon.
The Moon had Pluto nearby. And the Sun was just leaving the Beehive cluster in Cancer, and moving towards Leo the Lion.
What came through was the trinity of Venus Mars and Mercury, and recall of the transmission I received from these planets during the August 2021 Gateway - and the "Embodiment of the Lion" as Head Heart Core. We are here again, sun poised to enter the Mouth/Head/Skull of the Lion and the Lion's Gateway.
Here is an excerpt from my article in 2021....perfect for our now...
This summer, the light codes are speaking to me about...
The Embodiment of the Lion
HEAD, HEART, & CORE
There are three seats of awareness, 3 power centers for us as humans.
The thought field, The mind field.
The head is a busy place. It acts as both a receiver and projector.
Its fabulous function is to to scan for info, to collect info, to organize info, and to project information back out.
Head rules SOUND & SIGHT
As far as vantage points and inputs placed on the head, it a multi sensory area. Mouth, Ears produce and receive sounds. Eyes receive light, depth and color...sight.
Heart rules your energy flow. Your magnetic. Your electro-magnetic field.
Your heart rules emotion.
E- motion...energy in motion.
The flow of your emotions resembles electricity flow.
And this flow induces a magnetic field, which is shaped like a torus.
Your heart magnet is programable, and can be set to attract what you want directly to you.
Merged state of ONEness
Where you are centered in your inner power, quiet and calm. Steady and Strong.
The home, the residence, the temple of your soul.
Your source of inner knowing, your gut.
Working with Solar Zodiac Gateways
We use zodiac constellations as markers to define and “section” the sky as the sun moves on its path across the sky. The Sun’s path Is called the Ecliptic. Along the ecliptic are 12 Constellations – that we call the Zodiac. Anyone who has dabbled in astrology will be familiar with their names…Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
Each constellation has its own boundaries (like a city or town) on the landscape of the night sky. Just like you drive by an “Entering Grafton” sign when you drive into town, there are divisional markers that act like Zodiac Gateways along the sun’s ecliptic path. In one Solar Year, the Sun passes through them all, returning around the circle to the beginning again.
Every June, July & August, the Sun passes through the Solar Zodiac Gateways of the Cancer and Leo constellations. The constellation Cancer is home of the Beehive Cluster, and this is its own Gateway, preceding the Leo The Lion’s Gateway. The Sun crosses over into Leo on August 11, 2023.
During the Lion Gateway of 2021 – we had the triad of The Lion’s Roar – Head Heart Core content come through strong. During this gateway I identified three sectors of the Lion Energy – that define and distinguish the Leo zones HEAD HEART AND CORE. I chose marker stars in Leo – that are close to the ecliptic (Sun’s path) and also close to the depiction of these areas of the Lion shape drawn by the stars. We have demarked:
Head/Skull Leo Star – 8 Leonis
Heart of the Lion – Regulus (Alpha Leonis)
Core Leo Star – Rho Leonis (ρ Leonis)
Star Fact Corner:
You can read more about these stars here – I chose these beauties, you are to play with this and make it yours! Regulus is a well know, bright “popular” star, and folks are well acquainted with this associated with the Leo the Lion Heart. The other two were selected for their location and ecliptic proximity, they are not very bright or visible without a scope.
THE LION'S ROAR: HEAD HEART CORE
There is a corridor or gateway of astronomical alignments that take place in the constellation of LEO the LION. The celestial bodies involved this year are the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars and Mercury. The chart below outlines the many alignments that take place over the July/August gateway. It could be interesting to note or chart for yourself how each of these stargate alignments impacts your own field.
For example, Mars in the Lion Core on July 20 had many of us experiencing both power surges and belly/gut "stuff". The alignments with Regulus, the heart of the Lion, are always impactful.
We grow a lion's courage in our heart space. And our inner planetary gateways.
The head of the lion is near the star 8 Leonis
The heart of the lion is the star Regulus
The core of the lion is near the star rho Leonis
