Inspire! You may have hidden your creative flow recently, feeling upstaged by hard work or potentially learning new skills or because of responsibilities to health.
Be honest about your creative talents, let go of what does not grow corn, and pursue those hidden sparks within.
Look at your natural creativity and charisma, and offer that in service. Your life force improves when you feel needed and effective. In return, your community expands and steadies.

Leo Moon Sign's can shine and gather others around with their natural charisma. When they use their light for all sentient beings, they are natural teachers and centers of the community; their challenge can be to get out of their own perspective and honor another's path.
Our natal moon sign describes what makes us feel at home, how we process emotion, and how e handle our daily life.

It’s wonderful to see the effects of the stars and planets mirrored back at us in our daily life. The saying “as above so below” screams out at us to pay attention and notice the small details of Mother Earth.
The season of Leo tastes and feels of the heat that Leo's can bring in to any room when at their best. The sun is high in the sky, Cat naps and cool drinks accompany many of our days. At night, we blossom after the heat recedes and gather by fire or moonlight to dance, tell stories or relish the cooler temperatures that night brings.
Many of our gardens are already planted and are left to grow with minimal tending to with lots of water. Flowers often come into a second bloom this time of year and animals are raising and birthing their young. The mood of the season is often playful, creative and exuberant.
While our last fire sign, rules the early morning as the sun starts to peak over the horizon, Leo rules the high point of the sun's daily transit. At midday we tend to care for ourselves, lunch time arrives of maybe it's time to take a "siesta".
This time of day is grounding in our bodies, nourishing our physical sense of self to get through the rest of the day. Being the time of day that Leo rules, it is also a highly creative time, a great time to of day to enjoy the company of others, dance in your kitchen or sit in the sunshine and write a poem to submit to We'Moon!
Leo rules the heart, solar plexus, spinal column and upper back. Cancer and Leo both meet in the chest, with Cancer as the pericardium (water layer) in which the heart is suspended and protected. Leo is our internal fire and flame, the heart and solar plexus carry our internal core and give blood to the rest of the body. The spinal column and upper back provide structure and strength to our skelton. Stand tall dear Leo's, and let your light shine from within!

Planets in Leo love to express themselves and often struggle to be seen and heard. These planets tend to be dramatic or hold strong pull within a natal chart and add to your creative impulses or dreams.
Example: If you're Mars in in Leo, the manner of which you take action will be creative, strong and in charge! You may have trouble letting others take the lead and want to feel your voice is heard loud and clear especially when decisions are being made.

“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
With heartfelt generosity we entertain children of our body and mind, including our inner child. (Fire)
