Practical Influences ~ Leo

When the Moon enters a zodiac sign it adds instinctive reaction, unconscious predestination, sensitivity, emotions, intuition, imagination and emotional depth to influences that are at play; when the Sun enters a zodiac sign it adds vitality, individuality, will-power, creative energy and inspirational action to the influences at play; both affect the energy of our daily lives. Being mindful and calling upon these influences as well as utilising materials associated with them during these phases, will bring you closer to understanding your alchemical journey.

The Sun symbol is a focus on the act of creation and the center of humankinds existence. Specifically it is symbolic of the mind or intellect in relation to the cosmic whole.

The symbol also denotes creative energy, conscious self, and enlightenment. It represents life, power, strength, force and clarity.
