Again, in Real Time 13 Sign Astrology, this New Moon Total Solar Eclipse is happening in Leo. Check a Google Sky Map App for accurate planetary coordinates. The Leo New Moon is one of the most royal of them all! In ancient Egypt, it is Sekhmet, the Lioness that is the keeper of the Sacred Flame! Sekhmet is the goddess of war and healing. Her name comes from the ancient Egyptian word Sekhem, which means power. She was widely known as “The One Who is Powerful” and “The One Before Whom Evil Trembles” Sekhmet is depicted as a fierce warrior goddess with the head of a lion wearing all Red. She was prayed to everyday to keep the peace. While tamed lions were kept in her temples. End of battle festivals to stop the fighting were held in her name. Sekhmet is one of the oldest known Egyptian deities! Some researchers say she originated in Sudan where lions are more plentiful. Sekhmet is also the goddess of medicine and menstruation. Her name is used in prayers to protect borders and cure diseases. Physicians, healers, and skilled doctors, all revered Sekhmet. She is “The Lady of Terror” and “The Lady of Life”.
Sekhmet was mentioned numerous times in spells of The Book of The Dead as both a creative and destructive force. But she is mostly known as a fierce protector of Ma’at. “The One Who Loves Ma’at and Who Detest Evil”. Bast, another cat goddess, is a sistar goddess to Sekhmet and was also celebrated with her at gatherings and parties. Ancient Egypt and the royal cat goddesses remain legendary till this day. Sekhmet was also a party animal! Without the fun side, Sekhmet was sure to destroy humanity. Huge parties were given in her name to restore the balance. For the Leo New Moon be fearless in your healing. It is now time to face the things that you feel have too much power over you. You can do it! Sekhmet will help. Just call on her and light a candle! Now would also be a great time to do a blood cleanse and to work on any womb issues like fibroid tumors, cysts or candida. Be creative, challenge yourself to get to the next level and let your artistic pursuits shine, shine, shine! We must all pass through the flames of Sekhmet, to create definitive change and claim sweet victory in our lives.
