“The sign Leo is the sign of integrity, recognition, romance, affection, creativity, and play. When this sign is emphasized, we show kindness and generosity to others. We fall in love, and put our hearts into whatever we are doing.” Brenda Brush
“There is a songbird in the alley,
And I listen as she wakes the day,
In my mind I feel it dawning,
A brand new understanding of my way.” Jessie Colin Young

In astrology eclipses are evolutionary doorways which usher in a new era. The sign of Leo is associated with the Sun in the Tarot Card deck. This card shows a small child riding bare back on a white horse. The child looks joyful and the horse is moving away from a tall stone wall behind them. The wall symbolizes things which are unnecessarily limiting or burdensome. Near the wall grow some sunflowers.
The symbolism of this card has to do with clarity and moving in a direction of freedom – away from things in life that are unnecessarily restrictive – including thoughts and feelings. The sunflowers represent happiness and the child moves forward in a trusting, joyful way.
Alignments with Uranus and Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer, indicate an opportunity for accelerated personal growth and healing.
With the Sun conjunct the South Node it is a good time to move away from old aspects of your identity which no longer serve you. It’s a good time to define yourself in a more authentic and expansive way and call back your power from wherever it doesn’t belong.
Collaboration and cooperation will lead the way to successful evolution.
The sign of Leo rules royalty and in ancient times an eclipse in Leo was said to presage the downfall of a king.
One of the Sabian symbols for the eclipse is,”An unexpected thunderstorm.”
