We are in the height of Lions Gate energy this weekend! Lions Gate is a cosmic alignment that brings increased energy flowing between "above and below". The Lions Gate has ties to ancient Egypt and for Thousands of years has been observed and honored as a time of a great energetic influx and activation! This gateway is marked by an alignment between the Earth and the star Sirius. As the star Sirius rises in the sky, Orion's Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza, and from our perspective on Earth, it appears that Sirius (the brightest star we can see) comes closer to the Earth.
The Leo energy that we're all experiencing is associated with royalty, and so this alignment can be seen as awakening the royal codes of higher living which are available for all. This gateway creates an incredible period of accelerated ascension… And this year, amidst the already potent waves of change and transformation, it's supercharged. This is seen as a time to work on your psychic abilities, work with your Guides/Angels/Spirit Team, and your own Higher Self, as the other realms are merged closer with our physical world.
Energy themes you will feel this week:
You have more mental stimulation and may be fascinated by new subjects, or take on many subjects. It's best not to have many expectations as things may not go according to plan, so remember to be flexible. Concentrate and focus on tasks one at a time if you feel like you want to do everything at once.
Your creativity and imagination are enhanced this week. You may find yourself spending your time daydreaming. Use this time to manifest what you want in your reality, and not just idle daydreams of fantasy. Discipline will be lacking this week.
You will be pulled to penetrate below the surface layer of reality to find the real meaning of what is happening in your life right now. Great healing and abrupt changes can happen when you dig to the root of issues. If you find this happening, keep going and do not back off. Don't be afraid to face whatever it is because it is coming up to finally be healed. This is a great week for any form of therapy.
Mercury is still in Leo so we shifted from feminine to masculine energies, and to solar power. This is solar plexus work, focusing on how you feel about yourself. You are ready to move to a place of self-care and self-expression.
MERCURY IN LEO
Mercury catalyzes each zodiac cycle, channeling the qualities of each constellation directly into the mind. In the sign of Leo, this manifests as pride. We have a two week window of opportunity to face ourselves, our core identity, and the stories we tell about who we are. Mercury teaches us the very personal lesson of self satisfaction, by means of gratitude, thus keeping our ego in check. Choosing to operate from a place of humility is to awaken the heart, a very” Leo” quality. When operating from a place of heart center, we avoid toxic extremes of satisfying self. By remaining mindful of our sexual, and creative energies during this period, we can find a healthy balance that helps avoid the extremes that lead to self sabotage.
Halfway through the transit, Mercury creates a square to Uranus in Taurus, on August 10th. This tense aspect challenges us to explore our revolutionary ideas, asking ourselves if they are grounded in practicality. The earth sign of Taurus challenges us to tame our now over the top displays. Mercury then harmoniously aspects Mars in Aries, on August 16th. This supportive Fire trine creates an energy that allows us to communicate our desires and intentions with ease. We feel the forward momentum finally. Then on August 17th, Mercury conjoins the Sun in Leo, allowing our inner light to shine. The Sun is the natural ruler of Leo and productivity soares under this exalted influence.
Mercury rules our minds, and in the Fire sign of Leo, often overthinks. It prefers to hold it all in, and then an inevitable explosion of suppressed emotion tends to follow. Unlike the other Fire signs, Leo lives from the Heart. Such intense displays are often sourced from deep passion. This placement encourages us to balance those expressions. By tapping into the Solar source of strength, self-control is possible. This transit of Mercury offers us the ability to tune in to our true voice. We become empowered to operate in alignment with authenticity, confident in who we are, and where we are going. Inner Harmony comes from knowing that we are Divinely supported in our process of getting there.
Confidently communicate my truth.
Creatively express my authentic self.
Consciously balance pride and humility.
