Plant for LEO (Sturgeon) is Red Raspberry
Here we are finishing the teachings of the Sun in Leo (ends 8/21) and we have a new beginning as well with this New Moon in Leo. Just to refresh your memory, review the Medicine Wheel Astrology teachings for LEO:
LEO (7/23 – 8/22) •Spirit Keeper: Shawnodese/Coyote •Power Direction: South •Element:Fire •Clan:Thunderbird •Animal Guide:Sturgeon •Plant:Red Raspberry •Stone:Garnet •Moon:RipeBerries •Motto:”I Shine”
The New Moon is a time of magic … the dark void where we are creating our next reality. While in a state of awareness and gratefulness we will have an opportunity for creating our wishes in this next cycle. This is the time we ask Great Spirit for our special prayers and feel them in our hearts. (BTW: Leo rules the heart in the body). Everything now is about the HEART and how we’ve used this energy of LEO. Did we “Shine” in a good way while in the spot light or did we let ego (Coyote) bring shame and misunderstandings. Did we want credit for our actions and didn’t get it? (Thunderbird). Yes, the lessons of gratitude, humility and deep LOVE are all here in this teaching. Sturgeon didn’t get old and wise for nothing! AHO!
LEO (Sturgeon) 7/23 – 8/22
Enjoy all the delicious ripe berries now, for as we approach the next cycle we need to be ready. As we move into VIRGO, we’ll have a chance to “see” what our actions have been … who I AM (Aries), what I HAVE (Taurus), how I COMMUNICATE (Gemini), how I FEEL (Cancer) and how I SHINE (Leo).
My prayer this New Moon is that we wake up to each other and remember that we are ALL the same, there is only ONENESS and how much we really LOVE ALL OUR RELATIONS! AHO!
From the Heart Tribe We are *Star*
Planet Mercury symbol
When Mercury turns retrograde many people start to panic and blame it for everything going awry … not so. My perspective is that retrogrades give us opportunities to “go back” and get things we may have missed. Perhaps it’s time for a new battery in your car, a new phone or computer, review contracts or reading the “fine print” and anything involving communications, short trips and electrical/techno related issues. It can be FUN with the right ATTITUDE and it’s in the sign of LEO, so it will be dramatic for sure.
Sturgeon, strong, proud and intelligent!
Leo, (STURGEON) is known for being the KING of Fish … Royalty! They live to be very old and are known to be WISE by not being caught! Some have been recorded to 300 pounds and over 12 feet long! Sturgeon people can be ancient in their “knowing” and can access that when in balance. Their challenge is arrogance and ego, when they come from their heart they are amazing at entertaining us with their wit and charm. Since Sturgeon’s medicine stone is Garnet, this deep red color enhances relationships and friendships in a deep and lasting way. The Red Raspberry is their plant, which can show how we must be aware of the thorns before we get to the sweet berries!
So please enjoy this Mercury Retrograde and see all the blessings that come when we are heart centered. We give thanks to ALL OUR RELATIONS and Sun Bear & Wabun for their beautiful information. Visit Marlise Wabun Wind for the book: http://www.marlisewabunwind.com/

Starting the week on Monday the 2nd the Moon in Leo (Sturgeon) is finishing up with a weekend of “dramas”, excitement and a lot of self centeredness going around! It’s always “big” with this energy, we’re still in Aries, so expect it! Tuesday the Moon shifts into Virgo and we’ll be “analyzing” all of it! Virgo (Brown Bear), introspection, looking at motivation and intention and processing. We start to feel the energy and light of this big beautiful Moon in Libra (balance) and if we take the time to embrace the messages … there’s BIG GIFTS!
Friday 4/6/2012 the Full Moon occurs at 12:19 PM (PDT) 17 degrees Libra (Raven). This represents shadow work, polarity of the light and dark, working in harmony and balance. ALLOW the light of this Moon to bathe your body, mind and spirit, as the magical Raven takes you on a journey through truth/illusion, seeing the other side of situations, giving new perspectives. This is the Moon of nonjudgement, releasing the need to blame others or to have their approval. Our stories “they made me do it!” or ” I’m not good enough, smart enough, not enough money, or ?? In this light we can “see” whatever our excuse is that keeps us from our Highest Potential, what causes many to be “frozen” with fear unable to access the power of its opposite sign Aries the “I AM THAT I AM”. Now is, FACING OUR SHADOW, embracing the Light, flying through time and space with Raven as Guide and Protector! AHO Welcome Raven!
Raven travel with me through the light and darkness safely.
