Astrology Article: Leadership as a Creative Response
The New Moon this month is packed with creative energy capable of elevating your natural gifts into the realm of personal leadership. Creativity, leadership, and service to the greater good are related and are being activated now in an integrated way.
Leo, being a fire sign, incorporates the areas of your life where there is some sort of energy that’s capable of creating a spark. The creative spark must come from activity, from some type of interaction or friction that produces fuel for the Leo fire to burn. This is Leo’s creative process. It requires circumstances in your life to spark the flame of your self-expression.
This Lunar month success and leadership go hand in hand. The role of leadership is the most mature form of self-expression Leo can energize. Last month’s influx of energy helped to develop new levels of emotional integration. This foundation will work quite nicely to support your expansion into the energies of creative leadership that are available this month.
This month’s emphasis on leadership implies self-discipline, maturity, and the ideal of service to humanity.
True leadership isn’t only expressed through managing a team of individuals. It can be as simple as taking a prominent role in inspiring others through personal interactions.
This month, use your experiences and circumstances to trigger and fuel your creativity. Use your creativity to make the world a better place. In this way, you’ll harness the natural energies of the New Moon to inspire others through any form of leadership toward which you naturally gravitate.
We have four planets working together to provide this new level of creativity. The Sun, Moon, Venus, and Jupiter combine their energy to create a powerhouse of personal opportunity for new leadership.
Leadership takes on many different forms, each one capable of using your natural gifts for an extra boost to something purposeful in the world. One of the keys for success this month is a mature, creative response to circumstances, capable of expressing how you are feeling and then using this response to your life experiences as creative fuel.
The energies are complex at this New Moon. The Moon is balsamic to Venus and Jupiter, yet Venus is in a new phase relationship to the Sun. What this means is that there are two complementary processes at work – one is letting go and one is incorporating something new.
First, it’s necessary to let go of your previous ideas of what leadership means, especially any fear that the word ‘leadership’ conjures in your mind. Then you can be fully present in new ways to incorporate a new creative response to your current situation. In addition, with your fresh approach you’ll be able to use what you have integrated from recent experiences in terms of character and emotional maturity.
Express how you really feel in the moment. In the coming month creative self-expression that expands into leadership is produced by real events and real circumstances that trigger a creative response.
The idea here is to let go of how you felt about something last week or last month.
Life moves forward with new creative energies. You’re not locked into a tired old response to life. Success this month will rest in a spontaneous yet mature reaction to your life, especially to any old circumstances or patterns that may appear.
