Astrology for Cats: The Leo Cat

When we think of Leo, we quite naturally think of ancient Egypt and its famous Lion, the Sphinx of Giza, which faces East. This kingly lion seems to be waiting–perhaps for the day that a specific star would rise before the sun–perhaps the brilliant “Heart of the Lion,” Regulus. Regulus introduces the summer solstice and is the heart of the constellation Leo.

Those born under the sign of Leo posses a powerful, regal nature. Leo is a masculine sign, but the Lion also possesses and reflcts the fiery charge between masculine and feminine that is built through opposing energy–like yin and yang–to create or give birth to something new and protect it. Understanding the necessity of the balance and integration of these energies is key to our success when assigning traits to our Leo cats. Even though they have been spayed and neutered, their essence is still male or female.

As we examine the personality type of the typical Leo cat, one might ask, “Why do we care what our cat’s sign is?” The answer is simple: anything that helps us understand on a deeper level anyone or anything we live or are in close contact with can be of great help in adding insight and empathy, as we share our space and our lives on a spiritual and cosmic level. We can explore this connection with our companion animals, even when they were rescued, and we do not know their exact birthday or can’t even come close to a guess.

If we study the traits of each sign, we can see which of the astrological signs fits the cat and use it to guide us in the choice of remedies or modalities that are best to treat any physical or emotional issues. Flower essences, Ayurvedic remedies, and homeopathic remedies all require you to take a deep look at the personalty type of your cat. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, instructed that anyone who did not use astrology to assist with diagnosis was not practicing good medicine.

In classical homeopathy, for example, we are required to examine the constitutional type of those that are being treated; and the caregivers must be able to discuss the patient’s unique idiosyncrasies. In the case of our cats, knowledge of something as mundane as whether your cat prefers to be warm or cool at certain times of the days, is she afraid of loud noises, etc., are of great importance because they lead the homeopath towards specific remedies. When you read a materia medica or repertory of remedies, having looked through your cat’s astrology profile first could prove to be extremely helpful to your practitioner.

Astrology for our cats is also a lot of fun, if we can release our preconceived notions and allow ourselves to take a look at life empathetically through our cats’ eyes instead of our own.

natural homeopathic remedies for ADHD though that can be put into place right away. Since there are so many children out there suffering from this condition, it is important that more and more parents start learning about homeopathy for ADHD. The quicker you get started on these types of home remedies the quicker your child will be able to focus in school and keep out of trouble. The first thing you will want to do is to take a good look at your child’s diet. Make sure that your child is getting some protein in their breakfast and lunch. There are many studies out there right now that are suggesting that the additional protein is one of the most effective homeopathic remedies for ADHD. The reason behind this is that protein helps the brain to produce dopamine and norepinephrine, which are natural chemicals that help your child to stay alert and focused.
