Channel your passions – Leonine prompts for August 11th

The waning Half Moon in Taurus squared the Sun in Leo today, challenging us to let our creative lights shine without forcing ourselves onto others. Leo, ruled by the Sun and associated with the heart is the sign of the lion of passion tamed by our conscious will. The metal of gold was seen as a reflection of the vital force of the Sun in ancient alchemy, giving rise to gold’s inherent value and power.
While many of the mythological figures associated with the Sun are male, such as Apollo, Helios, and Hercules, there are female figures as well. One such feminine face of the Sun is Sekhmet, Egyptian Goddess with the head of a lion.

Our prompts for the short writing session were these:

  • List at least three of your passions; or
  • Write about some meanings/symbolism of gold.

Our longer writing period began with these prompts:

  • Write of a time when your passion went untamed; or
  • What is more valuable than gold?

Join us for September!
