Leo New Moon 2016

A warm and generous New Moon in Leo on August 2nd-3rd at 11 degrees.

Compared to the dynamic and often volatile New and Full Moons we've had the last few months, this one is a welcome break! The aspects are few and unchallenging.

Leo is all that comes from the heart; love, courage, creativity, children, personal passions and projects. It's all that brings us joy. It's our inner child. Ruled by the Sun it's also our Ego-Self, how we shine in the world.

A New Moon is the seed, the fresh start for the month ahead. Leo calls us to TAKE HEART. To re-find our courage and not lose hope with our dreams and efforts. Sometimes we need to go through phoenix-like transformations, or tumultuous changes. These usually have a very unsettling affect on us. But Leo reminds us that it's all been part of the journey and that ultimately we can experience joy and shine.... because we're now standing in a truer Self.

This New Moon is in beneficial relationship with Saturn. The joyfulness and creativity of Leo is given a solid and stabilising energy from Saturn.

This means that we're feeling a little more grounded. The recent upheaval (whether it was literal or emotional for you) is on hold and doesn't feel like quicksand or a crumbling tower.

We're not completely grounded or rooted just yet, but we're no longer swirling in troubled waters. If we've done the work of the past Moons, we've found a direction, even if it's a temporary one, or only a stepping stone.

Mars has re-entered Sagittarius so our actions and energy have been given a boost of optimism and direction. Our ideals have been tumbled about recently but now they're resurrected. We're able to recall what matters and what we need to DO, even without having complete answers to all our questions.

Uranus and Venus are in happy relationship, so you might make an unexpected new meaningful and 'feel good' connection with someone.

With New Moon Leo, we're called to find what brings us joy, what brings a sense of fun and passion into our lives. We're given the energy of stability and structure to put tangible efforts in place that keep us on the path our soul's have chosen.

What do you enjoy doing?
What fills you with courage and hope, and how can you make it a permanent part of your life?

Because it's time for you to shine.

peace & horizons dear friends,
Autumn
