No wonder C.S. Lewis chose a lion to be the "king above all kings" in his famous series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Aslan, the only character who appears in every book, possesses the ultimate in kingly--or some say, even divine--attributes. He is both gentle and fierce, both commanding and patient. He is wise, loyal, loving, and sometimes terrifying. We, too, can channel the unique attributes of the lion this month. Leo (Av in Hebrew) brings that powerful feline energy down to all of us, whether we're Leos or not.
The lion is confident beyond apology. A lioness moves with grace and agility. At one moment, she is frolicking in the shade with her playful cubs. In the next, she's bounding into the tall grasses to catch her prize. Lions live in the fullness of themselves at all times. Whether in caretaker, hunter, protector, or companion mode, he or she is all in. That's the secret of lion confidence.
