Happy Birthdays, Leos!
Willie Shoemaker – Small Man, Big Life!
The 4 roses are for each of his Kentucky Derby wins!
Willie Shoemaker was a Texas boy, an 8-19-31 Leo! Weighing in at 2.5 lbs at birth, standing 4’11” as an adult. He won 11 Triple Crown horse races in his 4 decade career! Even after an auto accident after retirement from racing, that left him paralyzed from the neck down, he continued to train horses from his wheelchair! An extraordinary human, Sun, Venus and Jupiter in Leo, Scorpio Moon. Horses and the winning Roses are big favorites of Leos! They are a romantic athletic sign, love to bet, willing to take the big ride on Life!

Across the sweeping fields, up the shimmering hillsides, the grasses are drying, the grains are becoming ready for harvest. They are putting on their final full fiery growth, full of life, seeds weaving lovely trails up their proud stalks. Stand tall, let the Light Shine within you in resonance with your true Spirit. Radiance rules!
Coming of age is a time bursting with the sheer joy of being alive! It’s warm. Summer romance, your first time, parties to stir your heart. There’s a generosity of acceptance as we relax and gather. Summer nights welcome our footsteps, hide and seek, brilliant stars overhead. Concerts fill the air with magnificent music, summer theatre plays to our Soul’s longings. And we change. We grow up. We become more of ourself, true. We see we can create our dreams, sometimes simply by Being, just doing what is in our Heart. You ARE who you are, perfect just the way you are. Though Leo is the 5th sign, the first labor of the Twelve Labors of Hercules was to slay the Nemean Lion. It symbolizes slaying the false self – not who you are, but who you think you should be. Some are so frightened of their true power they never get past this first stage, living their lives under a shadowed world of a false mantle. Arrogance, being too loud, needing constant or extremely undivided attention, a general unlovingness toward people, are signs of the price of this insecurity. As we grow into the truth of our own skin, it becomes our golden armor. We’re safe unto ourselves, in the right place at the right time.
Spiritual Selfishness is clean. As you Be who you are, your Self, you prosper in your Soul. You give what you can, your creations that express your core. They are the best they can be, bright, because you love doing that so much, you do the very best you can. You feel good, your health is radiant and loving! People want to be with you, learn from you. Leos are natural teachers.
Championship Gold is the magic that happens! Your prowess shows! You come in first, from the cherry pie to the race! Your partners are specially attractive! You can bet on it! Leo’s is the Labor of Love, Self, and the Self in Others. Golden. Blessed be.
The Uranus square Pluto is mixed for Leos. Uranus in Aries moves Leo right along. Leo, a ‘fixed’ sign, when not athletic, tends to stay just as it is, the Lion basking on the savannah! So it might mind being disrupted, but is curious and once going, excited and invites others to join in, especially the party. The party might be a tad political since both Aries and Leo are interested in human rights, right along with Uranus wanting to awaken, change the world, and spread the word world wide! The athletic front could be remarkable! Though Aries and Leos are often in it for themselves, though generous leaders, Uranus might sweep them right into team and group action, multiplying the results marvelously! Once past the shy or selfish stages, Leos love being the life of the party! Pluto in Capricorn says please, please, please don’t embarrass me with your unthinking actions, let’s talk things over first, don’t tip your hand too soon. They may control progress through their power over funds. They know what it takes and how long it takes to get there. They can be excellent at placing the right person exactly where they can do the most good. Often behind the scenes, until the big takeover, they know who to make lasting liaisons with.
2012 Elections Leos will put their hearts into causes for young people, teachers, self realization options, human rights. They are good one on one, and better talking to auditoriums of people! They love color and images, cheers, some great moving music, enthusiastically bring forth remarkable personal talents in others! They think of their children, and, as outdoors people, enjoying land and sea, they are sensitive to ecological matters, preservation, right use of land, sustainability, global warming. Put them in charge of video and presentations, demonstrations, let them be greeters and welcomers. Their warmth and generosity will be so appreciated and get things off to a great start!
The Mayan Calendar Leo likes the beauty of an exciting magical event! Get out the cape, hat, gloves and boots! Do have a special celebration, honor the sacred. Let’s all dress up and go to the amazing planetarium showing in honor of the Mayan sky. Then go get some hot chocolate and treats someplace warm afterwards, preferably in a home with a very big view and a grand piano! We will dance the night away, bring the new cycle in!
Leo, Last of Summer! Perfect for Time for Yourself!
Leo is the only sign that doesn’t have a major holiday. Time to take a break, from everything, even holidays! Snooze on the beach, loll about in the boat, or water ski until you can’t stand up anymore! Have a beach party under the stars.
Between times, finish up summer projects, get ready for back to school. Move and get settled, get ready for your new job, or going to back work. Get your hair styled, a new look that makes you glow! Check out a local singles group; take your Sweetheart to a special place, renew your vows.
When you feel centered, make plans for the year to come – include special places not to be missed during their season, put special people you want to connect with on your list, meet. Join a Toastmasters type group, take a seminar on how to make effective presentations. You have so much to share, do it well! Look into colors and lighting, theatre! Try out your talents! Get some coaching or sign up for coaching training to be a coach! Whether it is for sports or life work, your spirited encouragement makes such a difference. There is no one just like you and the way you do it!
