When the Sun goes through Leo, it’s more likely that you will attract partners or striking contenders for your own attention, who will make a song and dance (in true Leo fashion) to garner you praise and amusement. It’ s actually you that holds the spotlight out to others to exhibit their finest (or loudest) qualities, so maybe it’s wise that they don’t flummox you with so much presence and personality that it makes you shrink or hide under a bushel to ensure that you get a chance to get some air.
Similarly you may find that your partner’s shine is so bright that you pale in comparison. It’s up to you tomoderate the flow of solar energy, ensuring that there is some equality and fairness between you so that the relationship becomes a true partnership. Otherwise this month could create a scenario where constant upholding of your rights is necessary, developing more into a state of war and peacemaking efforts than any constructive exchange between two people who are really together to compliment one another.
New Moon Intention
I will pay special attention now to my personal needs for progress and reform through acquiring dignity and significance among those in my social environment.
I must watch my strong, sometimes desperate desire to claim my importance through contrast to my contemporaries. I must first demonstrate to myself that I am as competent as others, not the other way around.
I must acknowledge that most of the opportunities to realise my future vision will arise from establishing successful contact with friends, associates and fellow workers.
I must remain mindful that I do not come to angrily resent any failed attempts to create my world. I will take any disappointment as a sign that I must plan my objectives with greater consideration to the wishes of others. I must not become bitter or vindictive if I am challenged or meet any setbacks, taking these as a sign that I must work harder to transform any self-defeating remnants of my early childhood conditioning. I am bigger and better than my infantile tendencies to withdraw into my pain body when I do not get my own way.
Although I fervently want the privilege of determining my fate in every way, I must realise that to enjoy such a luxury, I must depend on circumstances and opportunities provided by others. I must accept that this is often contradictory to my own needs. I must realise the importance of adjusting to each situation, growing only by proceeding with mindfulness and not choosing to fight an uphill battle the whole time.
I will look to any difficulties faced in my relationship with my parents for any determining sign of toxic behavioural patterns in my affairs. I must fight hard to transcend all dramas here, or possibly face further bitterness and resentment.
I will establish clear goals and guidelines in how I will develop my creative talents and look within myself to find the encouragement and determination I need to succeed (I must not depend on others to motivate me).
I will develop my future vision only through cultivating better relationships with others (including public), through my management of peaceful negotiations, and by acknowledging that expert counselling, legal and social services are available to me, should I need any assistance in finding solutions to more complex problems in my relationships.
I have the greatest opportunity now to work at exploring myself through my partnerships with others, particularly with one special individual. I must be mindful not to descend unnecessarily into quarrels and petty squabbling.
