The Sun is shining in Vancouver and the moon is New in Leo. The new moon each month gives us an opportunity to revisit our progress towards our best life. With the moon in Leo your true hearts desire will be clear to you. Your inner child will remind you of where you find joy. It’s easy to lose our focus- to get lost in the mundane details. Today will remind you that joy is your birth right. Have fun. Laugh. Do what makes you deep down happy. If you are the sort who seems to spin around in the hard sad side of life now is your chance to refocus on Living with Joy- you have a choice: choose joy! Avoiding the news is an easy way to stop focusing on the dark side, no one needs to be reminded every half hour of the fragility of life, you can cross that bridge when you come to it- search out the light.
Leo is ruled by the life giving sun- find yourself a patch of sun as often as possible and allow it to work its magic. Nothing is more healing than the sun in proper proportions. While you allow your cells to regenerate make some space in your mind to receive guidance, ask “how can I bring more love and joy into my life? You will receive an answer.
Leo is the ruler of the heart in medical astrology. Or hearts are more than just a blood pumping organ, they lead us in the direction of our dreams come true. It is our hearts we need to listen too. The drum has a history in every culture, it is the instrument of the heart; if you can get your hands on an African Djembe you will feel the truth of that association. When you find the rhythm you will feel yourself relax into a healing theta state, suddenly you feel joyful, sometimes even overwhelmed with joy. In Africa the drum is religion and worship, it is played for every milestone. Always it is associated with the divine and our connection to that source. The Vancouver area has a thriving drumming community. Check out Drum Mama Studios or drumming.ca, if you are close to the peninsula, then Rythm Wellness is a fantastic place to explore this joyful healing ancient technology.
