The Lion in You

Astrology is the ancient belief that a person’s destiny can be found in the pattern of the stars and planets at the time of one’s birth. The “horoscope” is the chart that attempts to describe that destiny. While, I've never been one to constantly attribute every aspect of a person's character and life's outcome to their zodiac sign, I must admit I find astrology to be very interesting. 

However, If you are anything like me and were raised in Southern Baptist Church, you probably had a fear of researching astrology because it was perceived as witchcraft and a first class ticket to hell. On the contrary, if you are anything like me, you are probably no longer apart of institutions like that and you are now most likely free to define what spirituality looks like to you, think with an open mind, and maybe even look up your zodiac sign.  

Personally, if I have a need to understand perplexing situations in my life, I don't run to astrology first because I know that "there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets", but I do believe signs and seasons can effect and dictate certain behavior. "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years."

Welp if you haven't guessed it yet, I am a leo. Leo is the fifth zodiac sign. Leos tend to be dignified and strong, and it is this sense of power that allows us to get things done. We consider ourselves indispensable at times and this arrogance can cause us to be overbearing or autocratic. However, the thing I identify most with and enjoy most about being a leo is our creativity and boldness. Lions are symbols of strength, courage, and royalty. In a recent photo shoot with Darrin, I tried to embody that fierce spirit of a Lioness.
