☼ ☾ ♌ 14th August ~> a powerful self-realisation

☼ ☾ ♌ 14th August ~> A New #Moon in Sun-ruled #Leo places the heavenly Solar spotlight firmly upon the creative, artistic, fun-loving, playful self. And, in amongst all this love- light and laughter, there is also the astrological suggestion that self-realization is possible - achievable, even. So the time to start becoming self-realized is now, with this New Leo Moon, a lunation that culminates August 29th with a compassionate and deeply sensitive Pisces Full Moon. Indeed, we always need to cultivate kindness and compassion for self and others, but it is this particular cycle of ‘The Lights’, Sun and Moon, that reveals what we really need to let-go of and surrender to, in order to be ‘realized’. Many of you may wonder, what actually is a realization? And the answer is very simple: according to Buddhist teaching, a realization is when we are brave enough to recognize a negative emotion or reaction when it is starting to bubble up from within and then, as an authentic Spiritual Warrior, we quickly stop whatever it is in its tracks, before it has time to burst into the world and be expressed and do its damage, and thus unhelpful situations are diverted. Although that sounds relatively easy, we humans seemingly have a propensity (for whatever reason) to hang onto habitual negativity, be that an emotion, a reaction, thought, or speech pattern which we battle with. It takes constant mindfulness and insight into inner-machinations of the mind to be aware how the heart-mind is naturally clear and light, and a lot of the thoughts/feelings/repetitive things we say are an obscuration to such innate clarity. And while meditation is the quickest and easiest way to find the clarity within and develop strength of character, this lunation also accents a personal responsibility to creating routines and lifestyles that help us to best serve others in making this world an easier place to thrive as realized beings. Mark the 22nd August as the point to overcome a major hurdle in the practice of being true to yourself, when changes will have to be made en route to personal transformation.
