Yesterday, July 22 was quite a day. In the afternoon alone three major "natural" happenings occurred.
~ At 4:24PM an important child was born into the world: The Royal Baby.
~ Shortly after the Royal Baby's arrival the Sun left the sign of Cancer for 2013 and officially moved into the sign of Leo.
My personal thoughts on this are since the moon rules emotions and affects water and it is closest to the earth at this time, we are in a period of intense emotions. The full moon is juxtaposed with the entry of the Sun in the sign of Leo- the sign which is in fact ruled by the Sun! This tells me there is much light coming forward.
I think the birth of a royal baby at this time is absolutely perfect. What an amazing energy pattern to enter the world through. There is always a lot of hope that comes with a new life and this one brings more than most. As a potential leader of our time, we wonder will he fulfill our expectations? Will he continue to give us hope for a brighter future? What will become of this young Cancer man that is definitely not a Leo!
And what about dear Leo. As a Leo sun sign I would like to know! What does this sign bring this time around in 2013? It seems to be a year of dreaming big. Try new things, test the waters, see what you want next. A year from now, Jupiter, the planet of Luck and Gifts moves into Leo. So now is the time to take in the long view and see what you want to zoom in on!
I've always loved Henri Rousseau's painting The Sleeping Gypsy and I think it really illustrates the elements here. A full moon, a Lion and a peacefully sleeping woman in the desert with all her necessities around her. The Lion is inquisitive not aggressive and the earth is a cool, comfortable bed. To me it says rest well, you are safe and protected. ♥
