How's your Leo season been? Good?
Mine has been GREAT.
The first house was LIT and it burned through the remaining clouds in my emotional haze from that 12th house Cancer season. I'm back to my true self again.
All of it was necessary. I wouldn't trade it, take it back, or dare to wish it was done differently.
But bayBEE! Let's chat about that SUN.
The SUN! I see why there's worship of the Sun. I understand WHY it's been such a central figure in different spiritual systems. It's a pretty big deal. It starts life. In the Earth, the atmosphere supports the light (energy/radiation) of the Sun, allowing for life to remain. It's sustained.
I went down and I'm still down this healthy lined rabbit hole of information about it. I legitimately want to wave to the Sun just out of respect for its dopeness, ya know?
Please take a few minutes out of your day to understand the supercharging power within the sun and in its rays. I guarantee you, you'll be astonished.
Let's twist our heads over to the Leo now. The super heroes of the Heart, carrying the sun in your entire Torso. How are you? How does it feel, carrying the center of the solar system inside of you? Being the source of light for the populace? Being the entertainer, the artist, the teacher, the coach, the lover? Beautifying us with your excellent skills in physical upkeep? How do you make it all look so effortless? How do you carry such profound energy inside of you without burning up?
Of course, we can feel it. Even when you're not saying anything. It radiates from you when you're quiet - like the heat rising from burning coal. You're intense.
But, we need it - complacency has no place in your presence. Your light burns through the fabric curtains in our windows and forces us out of our melancholy. Your light is heard in the trumpets of salsa, shattering mutations in our waters. You're amazing, Leo.
Don't forget that.
I love you.
The Generous, Dynamic One
Fun, Dramatic, some
But Leaders they’ve all become"

Yes. It's late at night and my mind began to go. Not in the anxiety ridden speed it used to, caused by lack of sleep and excessive sugar consumption, but in my glossing over of information about the Sun for the Leo podcast episode. A thought came to me.
I began to think: what is the Sun to the other planets? Often we call the Sun the giver of Life - there's Sun worship, its signifier with the moon to represent time and cycles, its spiritual value, etc. It literally gives and sustains life on Earth.
But this appears to be from our one limited perspective and our experience of Life HERE - Earth. What is the Sun to Mercury, or Mars? What about Venus? What is the Sun to Neptune, Pluto? What is the Sun to Saturn and Uranus? What is its Value?
Yes, some of us heard that it is the Sun's magnetic field that keeps the planets in the Sun's orbit. But from the perspective of living in another planet - what "Value" does the Sun hold elsewhere? What would the life's mythology be for inhabitants of Mars for instance?
What would the giver of life be to a planet that does not have the atmosphere to support the original giver of life?
