Hello lovely ones and happy almost Leo lunar eclipse!
This post is to help you work with the potent cosmic energies of this weekend’s eclipse, so there is some cosmic coaching, along with a customized ritual as well as channeled Soulstrology Scopes - a message for each zodiac sign (read for both your Sun and Rising sign if you know it).
There is no right or wrong way (or time) to do the ritual but I highly recommend doing it in the lead up to the eclipse (meaning you can do this on Sunday itself/early Monday morning depending on where you are in the world).
Look at the life areas ruled by Leo in the natural zodiac, and your unique chart (Sun and Rising). As yourself if you are living a life of passion and joy, if your romantic life is passionate and playful, if you are expressing your true self in your daily life and if you are connected to your inner child, playful and curious. Take notes. Then check in on the life areas ruled by Leo in your unique chart and check in as to how you feel emotionally about these areas of life. As yourself if you feel passion, joy, full self-expression, playfulness? Take notes.
Write a list of any of negative emotions you feel about the areas of life ruled by Leo in the natural zodiac as well the life areas ruled by Leo in your unique chart and life generally (in other words, where there is a lack of passion, you don’t feel a sense of joy and playfulness, you don’t feel as though you are fully expressing yourself, you are disconnected from your inner child).
At the top of this list write the following words:
“I release all of the below because it does not serve me or my highest good. By releasing the below I make space for new positive energy to come in and help manifest my highest good”
Get outside with your list. As always, if you can, be in nature preferably with the Sun shining upon you (Leo is ruled by the Sun). If you can’t get properly into nature, then being outdoors full stop, by any form of nature will do - a garden, a tree, any vegetation, even a patio where you can look up at the Sun and just be. Sit with your list, look up at the sky, look at the Sun and the moon (she is visible in the day and at night) and close your eyes. Then re-read your list and see if there is anything you want to add to it.
Light a candle and burn the list. You can do this outdoors or indoors, whichever feels more comfortable to you and is easier (and safer!). As you watch the list burn, feel the energy of what you are releasing leave you as you watch the list go up in flames and the smoke rise up above.
Take a purifying shower or bath. If you take a shower, imagine the water is cleansing you, visualize that as it is pouring down on you it is washing away the emotions and energies you just released. If you take a bath, visualize that you are soaking away all the emotions and energies you just released. In either case watch the water go down the drain holding the visualization that it is all and any negativity, energetic, emotional or spiritual leaving your physical and energetic being.
Get dried off, comfy and cosy and light some sage, incense or palo santo, put on some headphones (any will do) and get settled to listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath of your choice (Mercury might be a good one to connect to your higher mind). Before you press play, ask for clarity as to how you can infuse your life with passion, playfulness, joy and creativity, and how you can nourish your inner child in your everyday adult life.
After your meditation get writing. Let the writing free flow and don’t overthink it, it doesn’t necessarily need to make sense. You don’t need to get a clear message. You don’t need to work it out. Just write. If nothing comes, that’s ok, it may come later, but at least put the pen in your hand and see what may come out. It could be one word. That’s ok!
Sit with your Soulstrology Leo lunar eclipse zodiac guide (in the Leo lunar eclipse blog) and look at the life areas (the same life areas you looked at to write your burn and release list) and see if any new feelings or insights come to you about these life areas. Make a note of them.
If you feel minded to (no pressure/don’t force yourself) then you can write a letter/note as to the new chapter you wish to experience with the Leo ruled areas of life (both in natural zodiac and in your Sun/Rising sign). Write it, read it out loud, then burn it, let the intentions go up into the cosmos as your mantra for the Leo ruled parts of life moving forward post this eclipse.
Celebrate your powerful Leo eclipse ritual by doing something that connects you to your inner child, that brings you pure joy, something playful, passionate, FUN!
