LEO NEW MOON 2020
Conscious Creation is in Our Hands
We have a new Moon at 26 degrees Leo on August 18 at 10:41 PM EST. We have an opportunity for a reunion of the heart.
We can find our inner light and makes friends with it once again. Creative self expression is key with firey Leo. New inroads to our own way of being can be initiated and made habit here.
When the Sun moves into Virgo on 23 August, the daily relationship with our creative selves is on the way to being a nourishing habit, as Virgo rules daily life, good orderly direction.
On 23 August Mars in Aries will square Saturn in Capricorn. The Cardinal axis likes to begin and then step back and have a look. Mars in Aries charges ahead, head first! And Saturn has a look at what has been created so far.
On August 24, Venus in Cancer opposes Jupiter in Capricorn. Again, the Cardinal axis jumps in and then has a look at what it has created. How we emote in relation to what we love, how we relate, and how we create will be expanded by Jupiter so we can have a look.
We now have Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto retrograde. This is an inside job. This is an opportunity to apply the heart, mind, time and power to recreation, to evolution, to full embodiment our our truest Selves.
This can illuminate us and radiate outward a love that helps, heals and transforms.
How are we doing with friends and lovers and family? How are we holding ourselves emotionally in the personal realm vs the world at large? Where can we take a step back when things heat up? How can we increase the care in our communication— both with ourselves and with others?
How can we trust our intuition to know when to engage and when to relax on our own to enjoy the experience of our own energetic field?
On 1 September Venus in Cancer will oppose Saturn in Capricorn. We can see how we are doing in regard to the structure of our relationships- with whom and how much energy do we spend our time?
I am hearing a lot from friends and clients about how the fabric of relationships is been stretched, stitched, mended, up cycled or sent to recycling during these times.
Leo New Moon is definitely an “I” centered moment to bask in the sunshine of our own creative lives, and to tune in to what enhances that creation and what distracts or diverts or even discourages us from it.
Leo is a fire sign that relishes creative self expression. What we create is anything from dinner to children to a new coop for the chickens.
This new Moon could involve a meditation where we imagine the Sun as outward expression and the moon of inner expression meeting in the Solar Plexus, the Third Chakra and resting in the golden light that resides within. Allow the Sun and Moon to come into vibrational harmony with one another. This could include a conversation between the two about how and what we want to create. It could include a road trip that our emotional and personality bodies take together learning more about each other on the way.
One could go within, in meditation, inviting the Sun and Moon in LEO to be present. One could ask them to show what it is they have to tell us about our personal creative self expression that would most benefit our fulfillment and union with the Source of all that is.
Let it be a journey across a World known or unknown; a conversation with your inner Sun and Moon while lying on any beach anywhere while you see a swaying palm, guiding you into an even more relaxed place.
Let the imagination guide the meditation and allow yourself to come back refreshed and revitalized, knowing this union of Sun and Moon in Leo is available at any time to fuel your creativity and relationship with the Self.
Okay, May the heart be your guide. Be true to that heart. It beats for thee.
Lots of love, Lydia 🦁
AQUARIUS FULL MOON 2020
The Full Aquarius Moon is at 11 degrees 45 minutes at 5:58 AM EST on 3 August, 2020.
The Sun then, is at the same degree Leo.
Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, in Taurus is making a T- Square to the Sun and Moon. The empty leg of the T-Square is Scorpio. Scorpio as the empty leg of the T-Square calls us to engage with others – sharing resources and information in new ways.
Venus, ruler of Taurus, is conjunct the North Node at 26 degrees Gemini. We are asked to have a mature look at how we value ourselves and others through self talk and how we communicate with others.
With the Sun in Leo, the way we are able to creatively express as individuals with love for the collective is highlighted here. Keep an eye on what makes you feel radiant and open hearted. The Sun of Leo shines on all and can shine its rays with exuberance and generosity.
We may feel electrified. We may feel jangled. It can be fun to align with the electricity with a feeling of excitement, welcome and anticipation.
The Uranian energy of the full Moon reminds us to ground any excess energy so that the new information that is downloaded can link with associated subconscious memories.
Uranus rules the individuated unconscious. Uranus will begin retrograde motion on August 15th which will increase the ability to link with our own unconscious and work with what is revealed.
Uranus/Aquarius’ role is to speed up evolution and liberation from conditioning that has been ingrained over lifetimes. The upcoming Uranus retrograde cycle may pick up the thread dangled in the form of lightning at this full Moon. Keep an eye out for reactions/responses that may be conditioned habits rather than authentic interactions coming from one’s own being in the here and now.
The Aquarius full Moon can shake us awake, and the upcoming Uranus retrograde can reveal where liberation from conditioning – familial, genetic, nationalistic, cultural, religious is called for. The liberation is called for by the Soul that wants to evolve.
The union of Leo and Aquarius can make for some very creative solutions to questions we’ve been holding.
Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, in Taurus will ask us to walk the knife edge between security, routine, and the revolutionary.
Taurus can roll with change when it becomes accustomed to new routines and ways of doing things – especially if Taurus agrees that the changes are practical — especially if they enhance safety and security.
Mercury, the lower octave of Uranus, is in Cancer opposing Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn
At the full Moon. The ways we use our words of power and actions of authority is under reconstruction with Saturn and Pluto retrograde.
How can our thoughts and words help and heal and soothe this world as it is under massive renovation. Mars in Aries will square retrograde Jupiter in Capricorn on 4 August.
If we continue to ground during this time -- imagine roots coming from the feet being nourished by the Earth-- we can invite the intuitive, structured wisdom of Jupiter to inform the instinctual drive of Mars to make some exciting new pathways in our minds, in our hearts and in the physical body.
At this time, everyone on the planet has been learning new habits of communication, of personal hygiene, of daily routine. Mars loves to join the march, so be sure to engage the higher wisdom and the healthy instincts of the body when choosing where to enlist the energy of the day.
The Jupiter/Mars square can be used to make great new useful and healthy habits instinctual and kinesthetic.
Then we can move on to developing even bigger ideas, plans and projects.
We are in creative, inspired, evolutionary times.
See where that which we love to create can join with the needs of the whole as we roll into the new life.
All the very best,
