Let Your Inner Light Shine

“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.”
— Marianne Williamson

It takes courage and bravery to show up in life and be the fullness of who you are without holding back for fear of what others may or may not think of you.

With the Sun now residing in the zodiacal sign of Leo, opportunities to be bold, fearless and daring enough to express your authentic self with candour and flair are multiplied.

As the astrological sign of creative self-expression, heartfelt generosity, magnanimity, playfulness, creativity and performance, Leo is naturally inclined to shine, illuminate, and bring the warmth of its ruling planet, the Sun to places, people and situations. Regardless of whether or not your Sun is in the sign of Leo, you can tap into and radiate these qualities in every aspect of your life.

Leo, as ruler of the heart and circulatory system, encourages heart-centred expression and emanates a unique and joy-filled light when operating in your life in positive ways, regardless of whether or not your Sun is in the sign of Leo. The light that Leo radiates is one that can shine and illuminate even the darkest of places, bringing hope where it has been all but lost, and opening your heart to the immense healing power of divine love. Leo enhances connection with your ‘inner child’ and gives you permission to play and experience life as a joyous celebration.

One beautiful and heart-warming example of Leo’s illuminating, playful and uplifting qualities can be seen in the performance artists who take their clowning and light-hearted antics into refugee camps to brighten and lighten the hearts and souls of the many young children and adults who have been forced out of their homelands due to war, violence, and persecution and who are often deeply traumatised and fearful.

The inner light of the soul that radiates out from you when you allow yourself to shine inhabit this place within us is the light that brightens the lives of those who are struggling, who feel helpless and lost in the dark. We become like a lighthouse, a way-shower to others when we dare to step onto the stage of life and let the star that we truly are shine forth.
