The Cosmic Story: Leo New Moon 2020

Lammas, both season and fire festival of First Harvest, is well underway. We find ourselves here in late summer harvesting our gardens, gathering in their bounty now that they've grown into their design and purpose - sustenance for our bodies, beauty for our eyes. Like the seeds and flowers that grew into our vegetables and fruits this year, the seeds of our previous conscious development slept within us, waiting for the new year to open and grow and create another year's story.

The year 2020 has developed into quite an unexpected story. From a spiritual point of view, it has become a story of a collective human initiation, a time when we are forced to face death and evolve, to transform ourselves and our expectations of how we live life personally and as a society. We won't know if we've passed the initiation until we come out on the other side. There is no doubt that we'll get through this chaos and change. It is up to each of us to make sure that change is positive and life-giving.

No small purpose! It will take sacrifice - 'to make sacred'. It will take discipline and responsibility and imagination. It will take community and intelligence and belief. It will take heart and determination and compassion. We won't do it by fighting wars or polluting the Earth or disenfranchising anyone.

We do it by living our ideals. We do it by experimenting with ways to do it together. We do it by waiting to see who and what calls us to service.

So let's look back to the seeding time of this unexpected, chaotic year and remember all the energy shifts that occurred in the heavens. Perhaps it will help us to see and understand what we've harvested in our minds, our hearts and our spirit.

Astrologically, we began the year with a lunar eclipse at 20* Cancer, the Nodes of both Saturn and Pluto, questioning our integrity and security needs while asking us to confront the emotional components of our unresolved issues of power and control. Could we let go of fear and return to a more nurturing, caring standpoint? Just to wake us up, a few hours later Uranus turned direct in Taurus (and in turn it just turned retrograde last Saturday, August 15), ready to rock & roll and see how it could shake things up. And shake things up it did!
