New moon Leo and the Eternal Temple of the Heart
Note: In the Kabbalistic calendar, the zodiac signs are linked with the lunar cycle, and the new moon on Thursday marks the opening of the lunar month of Leo.
The new moon opening the Kabbalistic lunar month of Av (Leo) on early Thursday (12:24 AM EDT) represents destruction for the sake of rebuilding, or descent for the sake of ascent.
Sometimes something needs to be torn down and destroyed in order for a more solid structure to be erected in its place.
This is the secret of why the first and second temples were destroyed in the month of Av (Leo), and why the eternal third temple, constructed first and foremost inside the heart, will be erected in this month precisely.
The advantage of the third temple in relation to the first and second is akin to the relationship between the righteous and the penitent, of those who never fall to those who fell, and rose again, and who incorporate all stumbling into their new stature.
This is the secret of the eternal nature of the third temple – it cannot be destroyed, because it has already incorporated destruction into growth, and draws its life-force directly from the divine crown itself, and is eternally created anew.
