Leo season of 2023 is ushering in a transformative shift towards the divine feminine in the collective consciousness! The recent astrological shifts that have pushed us towards the assertive Aries and the balanced Libra are bound to bring some resistance from the masculine side, both within the collective and within ourselves as we strive towards progress and change.
There is a notable emphasis on the divine feminine throughout the collective, which can bring about some powerful awakenings. It seems that overall, this season may be presenting opportunities for transformative growth.
Leo Season Overview
Leo season 2023 spans from July 23rd to August 22nd and it’s always an exciting time! Astrologically speaking, Leo season is associated with the Sun, which is the brightest and most powerful planet in our solar system. Leo, as a sign, is energetic, passionate, creative, and confident. During Leo season, we’re encouraged to indulge in our hobbies and passions and also to focus on self-care and self-expression. It’s a great time to let your inner child come out and play!
From an esoteric perspective, Leo is associated with the heart, which is seen as the center of our being and the source of our love, compassion, and connection to others. The heart chakra is often depicted as a lotus flower with twelve petals, which can represent the twelve signs of the zodiac.
During Leo season, we can focus on opening and balancing our heart chakra, which can help us cultivate a deeper sense of love, kindness, and generosity towards ourselves and others. One way to do this is through heart-centered practices like meditation, breathwork, and journaling.
Leo season is associated with the solid and robust qualities of the lioness, as well as with Mary Magdalene – specifically, she is said to represent the divine feminine aspect of an “alchemical marriage” with Christ. This season is said to inspire leadership, sexual healing, and creativity from a feminine perspective. Mary Magdalene is also believed to provide those who seek her with wisdom, courage, and guidance.
The Lions Gate is an opportunity to reawaken our heart chakra with new depths of creativity, courage, and healing is truly inspiring. It’s also promising to heal that the need for community will manifest but with a caution not to overextend oneself. It’s interesting to note how Aquarius, the sign is associated with Soul family, especially as the full moon takes place during this time, amplifying this energy. This is a powerful time for personal growth and connections with those around us.
The New Earth Template | Leo & Aquarius
Leo and Aquarius are opposite signs in the zodiac and thus have contrasting characteristics. While Leo is known for their exuberant personality, charisma, and flamboyance, Aquarius is famous for their free-thinking nature, eccentricity, and progressive ways of thinking.
When Leo and Aquarius join forces, it’s a powerful awakening that opens up the collective to embrace the energy of the Divine Feminine. This marks the beginning of a new era, where we live from the heart center and prioritize creativity. It also represents a shift towards the new Earth template and the gradual fading of the old world paradigm, which will unfold gradually within the next two decades.
Some refer to this as a utopian society, where the rise of AI allows humans to live more freely. However, for many, this may seem mundane as they have yet to tap into their inner child to heal and learn to love and accept love, let alone cultivate their creativity. Caught in the rat race for generations, they are now presented with the opportunity of ‘freedom’ but may struggle with what to do with it – from millionaires to the everyday worker.
While most people have yet to tap into their inner child and embrace creativity, a rare few – perhaps even ‘The Chosen Ones‘ – have been doing the work of healing and living from the heart center. These individuals have sacrificed temporary comforts to explore their dreams, using their imagination and creativity. As we transition into a new era, they can thrive on the new Earth with their powerful perspectives and skills.
