Sun in Leo
Creative, generous, and charismatic, Sun in Leo natives are natural leaders. Leo individuals have a great desire to be seen, heard, and acknowledged. When life sends these natives recognition and acknowledgment, their natural magnetism rises to the surface.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Leo is allied with Anubis in his phase of growth when he must release his wound of abandonment. Some form of childhood abandonment, and a subsequent fear of abandonment in adulthood, is something many experience. How we respond to this early wounding determines how we behave as adults.
For Leo individuals, the abandonment wound revolves around not being seen for who they truly are. This denial of recognition in childhood leads to a type of insecurity in the Leo personality; the need to be appreciated by others becomes the driving force. It is no surprise that Leo natives are found among those leading public lives; these are the leaders, performers, and celebrities of our world. At their best, their creativity is endless, their enthusiasm infectious, and they are generous with their time, possessions, and in their praise of others. If recognition is denied, these individuals can become strident, bossy, and resentful. Rather than seeking a mirror in the responses of others, these native need to see themselves. When this happens, the natural charisma of this fire sign rises to the surface and all are inspired by their radiance.
The Sun – Amun Ra in the Egyptian pantheon - will remain in the emanation of Leo/Anubis from July 22 to August 22. The best use of Leo season is to practice acknowledging, appreciating, and supporting your gifts, talents, and abilities through creative action in your world.
