Creature of the Sun Lord, beloved of the Lady,
Reveal to me the ancient methods of magic.
Walk beside me as I grow in strength and courage.
Show me when to keep ties strong
and when to break them.
Help me to understand the times for work
and the times for rest.
Mighty lion, lend me your energies.


Feminine Power

The Lion is the symbol of the sun and of gold. 
Medieval alchemists associated Lion with sulfur. 
A Lion totem presents a lesson in dealing with groups and your role within those groups. 
It is a totem for avoiding confrontations and for stealth. 
Take the easy way to meet your goals; do not confront them head on. 
A Lion totem tells you to trust your feminine energies Ė
creativity, intuition and imagination. 
But donít be afraid to roar if threatened.
