1888's Take: "Within the spirit world, when one is again aware that they are the "I am", then creation is instantaneous with thought. Here in this existence then thought must be paired with action. So act and receive and act upon those things that you wish to make real and not those that you do not."
Leo, meaning “lion” in Latin, is the 5th Zodiac sign in astrology. A fire sign, ruling planet being the sun, and associated body part the heart, Leos are highly courageous and love being seen in the limelight. Ambitious, creative, enthusiastic, and witty, a rising sign Leo is hard to miss.
As the traditional Leo totem, the lion is a figure of courage, loyalty, friendship and strength. Legend says that they sleep with open eyes, ready at all times. Primarily a nocturnal animal, the lion is a symbol of authority and command over subconscious thought.
In the realm of spirit animals, the lion wins the prize for the most relentless fighter in the face of life challenges. The presence of this power animal can mean that something “wild” or difficult to control is happening. As such, lions symbolize emotions that are difficult to manage, such as anger or fear. Wisdom, power, royalty, dignity, courage, justice, ferocity, dominion, authority, honor, strength and leadership- to name a few.
~Keys / Locks~
The right key can unlock the door to a lover’s heart, a new and bright opportunity, a once in a lifetime adventure, a chest of treasure, a deep and dark secret, or even change time itself by the winding of an old grandfather clock…
Historically, Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, can serve as a reminder that there is beauty in having the key to free ourselves…but taking the first step through the door is entirely up to you…one key, one lock…but what’s on the other side of the door is infinite possibility.
