Leo the battlefield of the Light Forces
Our ancestors considered the qualities of Leo to be associated with rulership and Divinity. Many cultures saw in Leo a symbol of the guardianship. A figure of lion stood near the entrances of palaces, temples and during rituals to deter evil and darkness.
During the time when the emanations of Leo directly impact our planet, we all have the opportunity to make progress in the development of our own spiritual being. This can be achieved by opening our heart center and receiving Leo’s Living Flame and essence inside of us. Our basic character treats will then reflect this touch of Leo’s individuality and true self-awareness. Many people are convinced that they are self-conscious, when they are merely obsessed with the gratification of their desires.
In the evolutionary process, first the form is being gradually prepared, adjusted and oriented. This happens throughout eons of time. Then, there is a slow awakening of the consciousness that follows this building of form. The thinking, intuitive, and loving soul is able to take control over the form nature and explore every opportunity for its improvement.
There are two important aspects of Leo. The first is their desire to enlighten themselves. This makes them long for self-discovery and self-perception, and moves them to experiment and acquire knowledge. The second is their desire to rule and dominate. This desire leads them to mastery and control over their personality, regardless of the motive – selfless or selfish all the same. The whole story about the functioning of Leo comes down to several important points: sensitivity to influences from outside, desires of their lower nature, and finally merging the soul with the personality and carrying out the Divine plan.
The spiritual Leo is fully self-aware – mystical and spiritually developed. They are aware of themselves, capable of holding clear vision and motivated by spiritual intent. They are also capable of perceiving and using their innate sensitivity. They are mentally polarized and wisely aware of the reality. They can recognize the forces and powers of existence and therefore they are free from the usual glamor and illusion of an average person.
Leo is often described with the words “battlefield of the light forces“. Leo is considered one of the most material of all signs. They are dominant, spontaneous, extrovert and creative. They possesses dignity and grace. A person born in the astrological sign of Leo wants to dominate their surroundings. They are ambitious, courageous, strong-willed, positive, independent, and self-confident. They are destined to be leaders and show their best when put in charge. Keywords of Leo are “I am in command, I want something, and everyone else must obey“. They will pursuit the things they want with enthusiasm and creative spirit. Leo has a very possessive nature. He or she will not run away from adverse conditions, going forward with the same tenacity to achieve their goals.
Leo is a fiery character full of optimism and enthusiasm. They are intelligent and open-minded. Because of their positive nature, Leo expects the best from their environment. When this does not happen, they react swiftly, often in a bad way. Leo is always marching forward, holding their pride and boldy facing the sun. Whatever they choose, it will be in the middle of the spotlights, in the first row, or in the center of the stage.
Leo brings sunshine into the lives of other people, with their radiant laughter and cheerful nature.
