Astrology Article: How to Release New Avenues of Success
The energy of Leo is ruled by the element of fire and brings with it an enthusiasm that can be quite engaging. Our Leo Sun and Moon is releasing new potential you can use to create success in your life. The fire element associated with the Leo archetype requires a constant supply of fuel in order to create success. The “fuel” of Leo is the energy of creativity that rises from your circumstances and activities. Leo creativity transforms results into success.
In terms of success, Leo’s fire burns hot, and at times without the necessary discrimination needed for long term success. The alignment of creativity with the expectation of success leads to generally positive outcomes.
There’s an excitement about Leo. It’s creative, inspirational, and driven at rare times like a wild fire out of control. The passion and excitement associated with Leo’s ability to trigger compelling activity needs to be harnessed. Its raw, untamed nature requires compelling circumstances to shape and direct all of its greatness into something fulfilling. Without some focus and directed will power, Leo’s need for fuel has the potential to take its toll like a summer wild fire.
When working with Leo’s energy at this particular New Moon, especially with Jupiter’s affinity towards excess, look for ways to express this potential with skill and direction in mind.
This New Moon stresses the importance of initiating activities which feed off of your strengths and skills. It’s important to hold on to a sense of maturity instead of rushing forward with blind enthusiasm.
Taking advantage of our new wave of manifesting energy will also require an attitude of success. You’ll need to move forward with confidence, creativity, and even a flare of showmanship.
You can expect success in all your new endeavors, providing you take the time to feel grounded and focused. Look for outside inspirations to catch your attention, but only act on them with a sense of direction and maturity. Will power and leadership are two of Leo’s sacred qualities that you can rely on for success this Lunar month.
Astrological Patterns: Your Kite Pattern of Success Needs to be Activated
Whenever a kite formation appears (in the chart you can actually see the outline of a kite), it represents success through new activity. More specifically, it offers the ability to achieve personal success in the world by harnessing the power of new and inspired activity.
We also have Jupiter in a close conjunction with the Sun and Moon in Leo. Jupiter is making such a close conjunction (only 1°) that its proximity is amplifying many of Leo’s extreme qualities, such as “combustibility and unrestrained passion.” Without restraint, this combustibility could lead to extremes or excess (Jupiter).
Mars offers the necessary control we need to realize the potential. Mars is square (90° separation) both Jupiter and Sun-Moon (see chart with red circles) and is activating all the potential for success that the kite represents. Will power, direction, and expansion have the opportunity to be balanced through Mars’ purposeful action and maturity.
Our New Moon chart has the potential to activate a powerful pattern of personal success in the world, provided you can harness its power in a productive manner. The danger is in not understanding the power which is fueling this success. The fire hidden in this New Moon needs to be harnessed, for there is the potential of uncontrolled results.
This month’s kite formation provides you with new opportunities for success, providing you are able to recognize what’s needed to activate the kite’s energy. In other words, you must figure out how to “fly your kite” in order for the success associated with the kite to occur.
It’s only through the quality of good decisions and maturity (Mars square Jupiter, Sun, and Moon) that your activities will find success. The shadow side of this astrological pattern is in Jupiter and Mars combining efforts to expand indiscriminately, like a wild fire using anything and everything as fuel for its creative (potentially destructive) expression.
Remember, this is an extremely creative and enthusiastic New Moon with lots of hidden power fueling it. Maturity, good decisions, will power, and leadership are your tools for harnessing your success.
