Today, September 3rd, 2021, the Moon moves from watery Cancer into the sign of fiery Leo. Almost as if by the waving of a magic wand, we’ll start to perk up if we’ve been feeling down, and we’ll realize not all is as bad as it may have seemed. This will also be a time where we will feel more in control of our emotions, and find creative ways to pick ourselves up from the bootstraps and give ourselves a talking to.
Sometimes we can tend to lose focus on just how lucky we are. We may not have everything we could fully hope for. But we have more than many. So, this is an energy all about gratitude and being thankful for what we have. It’s this perspective that lends a mindfulness to be ever present to life’s many phases, and that we can do more for ourselves and others by focusing on today more than yesterday or tomorrow. It is not to say that yesterday and tomorrow have no place in our thinking. It is a matter of application rather than contemplation. This Moon in Leo is going to inspire us to apply what we have learned, so that we can change the patterns of what was, to carve out a new pathway for what will be.
