Are you ready for your inner lion (or lioness) to step into the spotlight? We're entering the month of Leo (Av in Hebrew)--a sign known for its regal, fiery, and often illustrious ways in the world. The energy of the cosmos during this time invites us to step up, take charge, and shine our Light with that Leo might to help illuminate the path for others. Ruled by the sun, Leo is naturally plugged into that Universal solar grid (a little like an electric car--only this one comes fully charged!). Yet all this potency also holds an equal challenge for every Leo and for all of us this month: to live with humility and seek to receive not for ourselves alone, but for the purpose of sharing with others.
My late father-in-law, the pioneering visionary and kabbalist Rav Berg, embodied the best of Leo's attributes and so much more. He had mastered the Tikkune, or the correction, faced by the energy of Leo. Because while this sign's inherent knack for rising through the ranks can often be intertwined with ego, the Rav lived, learned, and led with great compassion and empathy toward others.
And that is the key to maximizing the energetic power of this time. We may even charm ourselves with the boost of confidence we feel this month! Yet if we get caught up in the trappings of doing it all for me, myself, and I, well--all that potential will end right where it began. We'll be wasting all the magic by keeping that Leo pixie dust hidden in our pockets. This is the month to spread the Light and the love!
