The Leo New Moon on August 17 has enormous creative power that can work through us to achieve our goals. We can use this New Moon to make our dreams real. We can build, grow and expand a business, projects and relationships. We are required to stay focused, believe in our vision and persevere. However, we have to take action. If we sit back and allow this New Moon to pass us by we are missing an awesome opportunity.
New Moons initiate the next thirty-day cycle. They are the perfect time to start something new. Wherever Leo falls in your natal chart is where you are being asked to be courageous, authentic and to take a risk. Leo is our creative self-expression. The Leo New Moon will show us what must be center stage in our lives and the role we have come to play.
Leo is ruled by the Sun, the star at the center of our solar system. Leo rules the heart, the central pump of our life force and the heart chakra, the center of the seven chakra system. Leo reminds us that we must live from the heart; our core truth, around which everything in our life must evolve. Leo is the heart-centered individual. The opposite sign Aquarius represents our communities our soul families.
Leo’s image of the lion reflects the dedication and heroism required to become sovereign beings. It takes courage to be who we really are—neither pretending nor hiding. It takes strength and willpower to stay on our path when parents, teachers, culture and the media dictate otherwise.
♥ What were you born to be?
♥ Not to do or own, but to be?
♥ What do you dream of, for yourself and the world?
The Leo New Moon is in a close harmonious energy flow with both Saturn and Mars coupled in Libra. This gives us determination and the social skills to be constructive in work, health and love. Saturn and Mars in positive aspect to the New Moon can give us strong self-discipline and reasoning powers. We can have an extraordinary capacity to sustain our concentration until projects are completed and/or our goals are accomplished.
This intense concentration makes for exceptional athletes. Our skill is based on the ability to concentrate over long periods of time. Thus, this is an amazingly constructive and productive New Moon. We can take the creative impulse of Leo and channel it into something that will stand the test of time. Saturn and Libra can give us the power to stand for ourselves given any fear and doubt. We can be impeccable and right on the mark. When we act responsibly with clarity and cool we can be extraordinarily effective.
Saturn and Mars can give us a patient, practical approach to our relationships. We can understand what we need to do to make them mutually beneficial. Additionally, soul mates come in all shapes and sizes including big soul mate love and little soul mate love. Soul mates empower each other and challenge us in healthy ways. There is a constructive balance of giving and receiving in soul mate relationships. Speaking of relationships, there is another story going on here at the New Moon.
Venus, the Goddess of Love is in kind and compassionate Cancer. She is in a power struggle with Darth Vader Pluto and the big bad wolf Uranus. Venus in Cancer awakens our divine feminine. Venus wants us to go deep into our feelings. Our feelings may have been buried since April while Venus was traveling through Gemini.
♥ What feelings are coming to the surface?
♥ Are your emotional needs being met in your relationships?
♥ Are you speaking your truth?
Venus in Cancer and in challenging aspect to Pluto and Uranus is emphasizing the need to transform the patriarchal paradigm to one of equality and sustainability. Women have to speak their truth. Men have to open their hearts. We must own our power. We want to do what makes us feel empowered. Otherwise, we could feel pushed, used and abused by other people. Remember that nice rhymes with mice and mice get eaten by cats.
We must set our boundaries and raise our standards in relationships. Venus in nasty aspect with Pluto and Uranus is a street fight. Venus must stand up for herself and not allow the bullies to push her around. Power, like everything else, is simply energy; it’s how we use it that makes all the difference.
♠ How do you use your power?
♠ Do you feel empowered?
♠ Are you living from your authentic creative power?
This is an outstanding Leo New Moon. If we use this energy to focus on our goals, we can move mountains. We can have productive pursuits that carry us into 2013. Our efforts will be worth it, remember after the heavy storm is the rainbow. This is the promise of our success if we do our part. Where are your talents and truth most needed? Where do you need to take a leap of faith? Get ready for major revelations and breakthroughs in the next few weeks.
“Being happy is the cornerstone of all that you are! Nothing is more important than that you feel good! And you have absolute and utter control about that because you can choose the thought that makes you worry or the thought that makes you happy; the things that thrill you, or the things that worry you. You have the choice in every moment.”— Abraham
Love and Peace,
The Light Was Wining from the Beginning!
