The New Moon at 16 degrees 24 minutes Leo shines on us August 8 2021 at 9:50 AM EST. Leo is a fixed fire sign. Creative Self Expression is Leo’s purview.
Mars and Venus are now in Virgo. They will help to clarify the creative energies of the Leo new Moon.
Leo is creative self-expression. With the physicality of Mars and the beauty/creativity/relationship energy of Venus, the Sun’s expression can be refining, honing and healing.
Venus is opposing Neptune on August 9th inviting us to reach into the dream space while maintaining a firm footing in ordinary reality. This allows the creative and expansive nature of the dream time to be available to us in the day to day: for creating, for imagining, for planning, for enjoying life in new/enhanced and/or different ways.
This New Moon opposes the outer planets which affect global issues. It is best to tend our own patch at this time, remembering that what we do on the personal level radiates outward to affect, and we hope, benefit the whole anyway.
The personal fire of Leo can invite us to actually put paint to paper, spoon to batter- to make, to create.🌻 Mercury in Leo highlights the willingness to make it so.
Mercury quincunx to Neptune can make a swirl of the message so we might as well make a beautiful abstract creation.
On August 11, Mercury moves into Virgo to help us to refine our ideas and creations.
We can look at what we have said and done with a new eye and perspective.
On 17 August Venus enters Libra breathing a different kind of aesthetic into the way we shape our lives.
The Leo New Moon invites us to remember with each sunrise, with each moment, we can start our day, our mindset, over again. We can imagine our to do list, our intentions, our methods in new and different ways. We can dive into co-creation – with our higher selves, with our angels, with our environment, with our challenges, with our desires.
Leo is creative self expression. It is ruled by the Sun. It illuminates, it enlightens and it has the attention and focus of a fixed sign to bring ideas out of the heart (ruled by Leo) and into reality.
Leo is fun and creative and generous. Leo lies in the ray of sunlight cast on the living room carpet. It knows when to hunt, to love, to create and to doze.
Happy Leo New Moon to you all. May the Sun rise again and again to illuminate and comfort the heart, the mind, and the spirit. May the Sun warm and heal. May the Sun be a daily reminder that we can rise again and again to a live and create in new day.
Love, Lydia 🌻🦁🌻
