Cancer 16° (July 7)

It was shopping for solicitors day. Not fun, but it had to happen. Day seven no sleep and lost as many pounds so far. Keep waking up in a puddle of sweat. I have started a huge legal-pad list of everything that needs doing. I also scheduled movers for the inevitable. My goal today is to write just one page: For Leo dissatisfaction can be her greatest asset, because it such a motivator. We have long spoken of Dorothy Gale from Oz fame as being a literary emanation of the Leo archetype. She lives in a dull gray world where everyone is caught up in banalities and pettiness and nobody understands her. As her surname suggests, that brewing storm and she are one and the same. She has a run-in with a charlatan, when she herself is the shaman in the story. A window flies open, bumping her head and putting her into a trance that exports her to a vivid realm of magical beings. Here she must perform the ritual drama of the hunt, if she is to achieve her desired destiny. We have defined the companions she meets as metaphysical representations of her cultivating mind, opening heart and would-be lionized spirit, all of which are developed during the hunt along her golden path. Follow the yellow brick road, she is told, presumably because it’s a method that has worked in the past. Already vanquishing one demon upon arrival there will be greater ones to face and kill. Like Dorothy, Leo woman is the hunter and perceived wickedness is her prey; meanwhile, she will capture the minds and hearts and spirits of entire populations, these dual actions going hand-in-hand. The Wicked Witch is a terribly insecure character, she’s paranoid and her sinister nature stems from the sin of a lack of self-love. The fixed fire of the sign, and the astrological fifth house of the love you give, are prescriptions to Leo to continually fan the flames of self-regard and -affection. As is true in all ritual dramas of the hunt, they are largely designed to achieve healing. And so, we find Dorothy ultimately surfacing from her trance, back in the lap of Hestia’s domain of home, where she’s killed the original green meanie, a bundle of fear, envy, greed and other such vices that give rise to victimhood.
