Lunar Theme: Rebirth "This October 13, 2015 (Oct 12 MST) New Moon ... occurs amongst the stars of the Virgin and conjoins the Dwarf Planet Haumea ... (pronounced how-MAY-ah) ... the goddess of childbirth and fertility in Hawaiian mythology ... The Uranus-Eris conjunction opposite Haumea has been and will continue to be extremely influential in the tearing down of our old world paradigm and the birthing of a new world consciousness, especially accelerant when Uranus conjoins Eris [The Great Disrupter] ... Mars, Venus and Jupiter also conjoin ... impelling us to mobilize and expand in demonstrable action upon the inner changes we have made ... in our values, in our capacity to be receptive to far greater changes coming in our lives, and in our capacity to live from the audacity of a fearless wide open heart."

Leo Roars with Planetary Delight ~ Mizar's Fiery Creativity Is Grand ~
Denebola, the Lion's Tail Star, Whips into Action

Dawn's planetary performance takes place in the constellation of Leo the Lion. North of Leo lies the Big Dipper in the Constellation of the Great Bear. Mizar is the star the marks the bend in the Dipper's handle. The Lion's triangular hindquarters end in a point that marks Leo's tail star, Denebola. Helpful Maps 1, 2

Mars, Venus and Jupiter ... conjoin in this lunar cycle under the auspices of the Lion and fiery and creative Mizar of the Great Bear. This conjunction is the culmination of the Venus retrograde and her multi-conjunctions with Mars and Jupiter, now impelling us to mobilize and expand in demonstrable action upon the inner changes we have made during the retrograde occurring over the last few months—in our values, in our capacity to be receptive to far greater changes coming in our lives, and in our capacity to live from the audacity of a fearless wide open heart. -  Nick Fiorenza / Lunar Month Oct.13-Nov.11, 2015

Leo roars in delight with his visitors. Together the cosmic Lion and his cohorts are reshaping our way of being into a True Divine Self.

Solar fire comes from Leo the Lion, for the Sun rules Leo exoterically, esoterically and hierarchically. This fire is associated with soul consciousness, the fire of higher mind. Leo’s eternal flame burns within us, purifying the lower mind. Its highest expression is the fully integrated personality who stands out from the "herd". It is the Self who is ignited by the fire of Divine Will and filled with the inspiration of heaven, the human who has become the "five-pointed star”. Five - Leo qualities culled from Leo.

Mizar expresses raw fiery energy that must manifest in one way or another. This energy must have a creative outlet. Mizar brings attention to how we use our creative energies and to our creative and destructive tendencies. Mizar asks us to look at our fear to participate and co-create due to the potential of our creative energy erupting in destruction. Mizar ... expresses one of the seven rays of Ursa Major teaching us the nature of such volatile forces. Certain alignments with Mizar are known to result in catastrophic fires or massacres, but Mizar can also express quite artistically. Gunpowder can be used to create beautiful fireworks or devastating explosions. Either way, the expression of Mizar is always noticed in a grand way ... -  Nick Fiorenza / Lunar Month Sept.6-Oct.6, 2002

Be aware of Leo the Lion’s tail star. Leo demands we follow the Higher Law of Spirit here on Earth, that we become the Soul. His tail star, Denebola, whips into action in the presence of any celestial body! If the Higher Law is not followed, Denebola, also known as the Changer, may bring about swift judgment when it joins with a planet or the Moon. Our morning trio lies very near Denebola. Helpful Maps 1, 2 Each of these planets activates the tail star at different times.

Denebola Activations:

Oct. 26-29 - Mars
Oct. 30-31 - Venus + Mars
Nov. 6 - Jupiter + Waning Crescent Moon
Nov. 7-11 - Jupiter

Cosmic forces are fiercely fanning the eternal flame that is burning within us. Fiery energies are purifying humanity, and seeking creative outlets. Divine Will is birthing new Life on this planet.

Keep Your Eye on the Eagle
Call Down the Fire
Do Not Look at the Ground
Be Centered in Divinity

- Alice Bailey / Labors of Hercules

We are consecrating the form aspect, to make it available as a channel for the Divine. Old structures of thought that no longer serve must be dissolved. In their place, Spirit will impress upon us the needed new ways of being for our next steps on our Divine path.
