Leo New Moon

2 Aug

leofirepicWe may start to feel fired up and frisky at this New Moon in fiery Leo.  The sky is lit up with some fiery energies now.  The spirit of the Lion focuses on things that are heart centered, fun and creative; the things that bring us pleasure and joy, including children and romantic encounters.  This is also the time of year to  get in touch with those things that make us special; the things that make you uniquely and authentically you; whatever talents and/or a knack for this or that that it may be.  The Lion is proud and confident; perhaps part of your life could use a boost in confidence and vitality.  On the flip side of that, although it is good to be proud, confident and full of self-esteem, we need to be mindful of turning people off by being a braggart, showoff and/or arrogant.

The New Moon in Leo gets involved in the clash between structured Saturn and nebulous Neptune that we’ve been dealing with all year.  This configuration has us testing our faith and our knowledge of what we believe reality is as well as being able to manifest some of our long held dreams and visions.

This New Moon is in a favorable aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, supporting some of our creative projects.  We could even see a completion to some of the large obstacles we may have experienced as of late.  There is still a need to increase our discipline and cut back on anything excessive or extravagant.  This theme of cutting back will continue for a while.  Saturn has been in retrograde motion for the last several months.  During this time it was necessary to consider our goals for the future as well as what success means to us personally.  Saturn will turn to direct motion in less than two weeks but is already in the degree that he’ll station in. This is giving a concentrated focus to this part of the chart and affects those that have planets or angles at or near 9 degrees of a mutable sign- Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces the most.

Neptune and the North Node in Pisces also connects with this Leo New Moon suggesting that releasing and surrendering some of those images, illusions, masks or ideals of the past yields a more authentic form of self-expression. Many of the things of the past that have held us back or that have contributed to our own undoing may give way to a self that is more confident and self-actualized.

Mars the Motivator has moved back into fellow fire sign Sagittarius and is now in direct motion; this gives us some momentum to push forward.  We may be feeling more adventurous wanting to get out and explore more, even if only in the mind, or we could even be traveling and vacationing.  With Mars in Sagittarius, our actions may be more future oriented, rooted in our truth or on what we now know or have recently discovered.  Alternatively, it could be that we push too far too fast or perhaps someone is being arrogant and pushy or forceful and angry in their beliefs and opinions.

We have even more fiery energies as Venus in Leo is in a favorable aspect to Uranus in Aries.  We could attract attention from both lovers and friends with this aspect; some even quite unexpected.   We may also desire more good times and freedom or we may feel extra creative leading to some kind of a break through.

Finally, we also have an opposition between Juno in Scorpio and Ceres in Taurus suggesting that our relationships may be deepening and evolving, some may even be ending; and this is requiring integration as we are establishing our sense of belonging.  Jealousy and possessiveness could also play a role where our relationships are concerned.

Blessings to ALL at this New Moon!

New Moon in Leo

26 Jul

The Leo New Moon officially welcomes Jupiter to this creative sign. Jupiter moved into Leo on July 16th and hasn’t visited this sunny sign since August 2002- August 2003. This lunation sets the energy in motion. This Leo New Moon is conjunct Jupiter and fun is in order. Over the next year while Jupiter tours Leo, our growth can be experienced through our children, our creative self-expression and by giving recognition to our own inner child. We may be presented with creative opportunities and can even receive a boost in confidence and self-esteem.

Mars also changes signs and moves into Scorpio just before the Leo New Moon, after a very long stay in Libra. All of 2014 so far! While most of 2014 may seem like a ‘lost year’ so far with very little forward movement, things will take on a different vibe. It’s possible you’ve needed to come to a decision or agreement lately or possibly pushing for cooperation or initiating contact with an important other but just kept spinning wheels or going back and forth and just couldn’t get there. It may have seemed like you took one step forward and two steps back but now with Mars in Scorpio, no more ‘up in the air’ or vacillation. Things seem more all or nothing or a do or die type of energy. At this time, we may also start to feel more vital and alive, confident and passionate with renewed vigor and energy. Hot Blooded

This New Moon is also square Mars (then Mars and Jupiter perfect their square in a few days so this influence will linger.) We could even see a mix of tempers and threats sparked by egos and opinions with this aspect so be careful not to put on too much of a show. The positive is there is an intense drive for heart centered activities, for fun and enjoyment and for things that make us feel special. During this transit we may also feel magnetic and passionate, theatrical and romantic, and daring to be a bit dramatic.
