As we transition into the vibrant energy of Leo season, we are encouraged to step into our power, ignite our inner fire, and express ourselves boldly and passionately. Symbolically ruled by the Sun, Leo represents creativity, leadership, and unabashed self-expression.
This guide presents three Chakrub rituals designed to help you harness and embody the potent Leo energy. Whether you are a Leo or simply wish to tap into the vitality of this season, these rituals will help you shine your unique light into the world.
1. IGNITING YOUR INNER FIRE
In this ritual, we create a Sun Circle with your Chakrub, symbolizing the radiance of Leo and the transformative power of the sun.
What you will need:
- Your chosen crystals (at least 4 to 6 for a Sun Circle)
- Chakrub of your choice
- A small mirror
- A golden or yellow cloth
- Choose your crystals: Select crystals that represent Leo's fiery energy and the radiant light of the Sun like citrine, tiger's eye, carnelian, or sunstone.
- Energetic cleanse: Cleanse your crystals by visualizing a white light passing through them or leave them under sunlight for a few hours to charge with solar energy.
- Prepare the space: Create a stimulating atmosphere using bright lighting and uplifting music if desired. Lay out your golden or yellow cloth in a location where you feel empowered, perhaps where sunlight naturally hits.
- Create the Sun Circle: Arrange your chosen crystals in a circular pattern on the cloth, symbolizing the sun. Place the small mirror in the center to represent the radiant light of Leo.
- Connect with your Chakrub: Hold your Chakrub close to your heart, allowing its energy to resonate within you. Center yourself and set your intentions for the ritual.
- Trace the Sun Circle: With your Chakrub, trace the circle of crystals, imagining a fiery line of energy connecting them all.
- Reflection and empowerment: Place your Chakrub on the mirror in the center of the circle, visualizing the Sun's energy being reflected in all directions.
- Self-Expression: Choose a stance with your feet distanced wide enough to be over the mirror and take a moment to express yourself in any way that feels right. You may wish to dance, or sing, or recite a poem.
- Pleasure: Conclude the ritual with a moment of self-pleasure with your Chakrub, internalizing the power of personal power, courage, and self-expression.
This Leo Season Sun Circle Ritual is designed to bring out your inner fire, helping you to embody the fearless energy of Leo. By tapping into this vibrant energy, you're encouraged to be bold, brave, and unapologetically yourself. May this ritual serve as a reminder that you, just like the Sun, are powerful and can shine your light brightly.
2. ROARING AFFIRMATIONS
The second ritual involves creating powerful affirmations that resonate with your personal power, self-confidence, and radiance, amplifying them with your Chakrub.
What you will need:
- Your Chakrub
- A list of empowering affirmations
- A piece of paper and a pen
- A small box or envelope
- Gold or yellow candles (optional)
Write your affirmations: Leo season is about self-confidence, so take a moment to write down empowering affirmations that make you feel bold and radiant. Some examples might be "I am powerful and capable", "I express myself freely and confidently", or "I shine my light brightly and unapologetically".
Connect with your Chakrub: Hold your Chakrub close to your heart, allowing its energy to resonate within you. Center yourself, grounding your energy, and setting your intentions for the ritual.
Speak your affirmations: One by one, read your affirmations out loud, with the Chakrub held close to your mouth. Roar them if you can, with as much vigor as possible. As you do so, visualize the vibrational energy of your voice being absorbed and amplified by the Chakrub.
Ignite your inner fire: Close your eyes and visualize a golden, fiery light building within you, getting stronger and more vibrant with each affirmation. This is your inner Leo spirit, radiating confidence and strength.
Seal your affirmations: After you've read all your affirmations, take a moment to absorb the energy. Then, fold the paper with your affirmations and place it into the small box or envelope.
Pleasure: As you conclude the ritual, allow yourself a moment of self-pleasure with your Chakrub. As you connect with your body, let the power of your affirmations permeate your being.
Closure: To close the ritual, you might light the gold or yellow candles, symbolizing the radiant light of Leo. As the candles burn, imagine your affirmations being carried up to the universe, ready to manifest.
This Leo Season Roaring Affirmations Ritual is designed to harness the power of vocal expression and amplify it with the energy of your Chakrub. It encourages you to step into your own spotlight, to roar your intentions to the universe, and to stand proud in your authentic self. May it serve as a reminder of your own inner strength, and may it inspire you to let your voice be heard.
3. EMBRACING THE SUN
The third ritual involves a sunrise ceremony with your Chakrub, signifying the emergence of your inner light and personal growth.
What you will need:
- Your Chakrub
- Gold or orange/yellow crystals (sunstone, citrine, tiger's eye)
- A comfortable place to view the sunrise
Wake with the sun: Set an alarm to wake up before sunrise. As you awaken, take a moment to center yourself and become present.
Morning cleanse: Start your day with a cleanse. This could be a shower, a smudging ritual, or a meditation. Use this time to shed off any residual energies from your sleep and to prepare yourself for the new day and the ritual ahead.
Sunrise position: Go to a comfortable place where you can see the sunrise clearly. Take your Chakrub and your chosen crystals with you.
Connect with your Chakrub and crystals: As you wait for the sun to rise, hold your Chakrub and crystals in your hands. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and center your thoughts on the forthcoming sunrise and what it represents – a new day, new possibilities, and your personal power.
Sunrise and affirmations: As the sun begins to rise, say affirmations that align with your intentions for self-confidence, creativity, and inner strength. For example, "As the sun rises, so does my inner light", "I am radiant, powerful, and brave", or "I shine my light and express myself freely".
Basking in the sun: Once the sun is up, bask in its light. Let the rays hit your face, your Chakrub, and your crystals. Imagine this light charging you and your tools with its powerful energy, enhancing your personal power, self-confidence, and the joy of self-expression.
Pleasure: As the sun continues its journey into the sky, close your eyes and take your Chakrub, allowing yourself a moment of self-pleasure. As you connect with your body, let the power of your affirmations and the sun’s energy permeate your being.
Gratitude: After the ritual, express gratitude for the sun, the new day, and for the opportunity to express your true self. Thank the universe for its energies and for the confidence it has helped cultivate within you.
This Leo Season Embracing the Sun Ritual encourages you to start your day with the power of the sun, symbolizing the radiant energy of Leo. It's a reminder that you, like the sun, have the capacity to rise, shine, and bring warmth and light into the world. May it fuel your inner strength and boost your self-confidence throughout Leo season and beyond.
