On August 1st, 2019 we have a glorious New Moon in Leo. This is one of the best New Moons of the year, so don’t let it pass you by.
We have 12 New Moons in a year, one in each zodiac sign. Every New Moon will teach you a little bit about each of the zodiac signs. On August 1st, it’s Leo’s turn! The New Moon in Leo is your once-in-a-year opportunity to work with the Leo energy.
Leo is our heart center, our connection to the Source, the core of who we are. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the biggest and brightest ‘planet’ in our solar system.
Just look at the Sun! The Sun is inevitable. We can always count on the Sun to rise every morning. Even after the darkest night, the Sun comes to shine, give warmth and light.
If you are familiar with the Wizard of Oz, you may know the story of the cowardly lion. The cowardly lion is an archetype for everything that the Sun is not.
Sometimes people with lots of Leo energy in their chart struggle with fear and cowardice, especially in the first part of their lives.
That’s because this is exactly what they need to master. Leo is here to teach us how to act truthfully – not in the absence of fear, but in spite of it.
New Moon In Leo – No Place For Fear
In the last year, the ‘infamous’ Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn has taught us some hard lessons about how deeply corrupted the system has become.
But Leo is here to teach us that the system is ‘us’. If every single one of us would live from the heart, and do what’s right – the corrupted system would collapse. In the heart of the Sun, there is no place for fear – only for love.
There’s no shadow in light. If Saturn is the lord of time – showing us that our existence is limited and that sooner or later we will perish, the Sun tells us a different story – that we are immortal, and that there is no time in eternity.
No matter what, the Sun will always rise – every morning, every day, forever. When you’re fully engaged with something, when you’re fully in the flow, time disappears.
When you lose track of time, because you’re so much into something, this is when you embody your inner Sun.
Thanks to the Sun, life is eternal. That’s why in astrology Leo rules children and childbirth. In fact, Leo rules any type of creative project – because every time you put your heart and soul into something, the object of your creation will live forever. Leo also makes us fall in love. When we fall in love, we have no fear. Time collapses.
The New Moon in Leo is an invitation to open up to the endless and infinite possibilities of who you are. Because – believe it or not – you were born for a reason, and the world needs you.
Next time you lack confidence – remember you’re on a special mission – and it’s your duty to shine your genius and reach your full human potential. If you close yourself to the world, if you don’t reach out of your comfort zone, you’re wasting your life.
New Moon In Leo – Go For It
The most important aspect of the New Moon in Leo is a tight conjunction with Venus, the Goddess of Love and personal values. The theme of living from the heart is highlighted even more.
The New Moon in Leo conjunct Venus will ask you to passionately roar the truth of who you are, loudly and proudly. Without fear.
The New Moon in Leo is also square Uranus and trine Jupiter. Uranus will invite freedom and change, pushing you to move forward with courage and authenticity.
You simply cannot compromise yourself any longer. Something has to give in. But thanks to the trine to Jupiter, it will be easier than ever to break through any resistance.
Mercury goes direct just minutes after the New Moon. One more perfect excuse to do what your heart wanted to do for a looong time.
Jupiter trine the New Moon is there to support you, instilling you with hope and faith. Right now, your desire to grow is simply stronger than your fear of change.
The Sabian symbol of the New Moon in Leo says it all “Glassblowers shape beautiful vases with their controlled breathing”.
The beautiful vases represent our Leonine creation. To make something beautiful, the glassblowers have to use controlled breathing – they have to involve their whole being in the creative process.
With Venus in the heart of the Sun – this is the best time to give your all – and put your whole being into whatever it is that you are doing. If you do so, you will create a masterpiece.
New Moon In Leo – Do What Your Inner Lion Would Do
If you’re not quite sure how to find your heart’s desire, take a piece of paper and write down all those events or times in your life when you felt alive, when you were in total flow, when time stopped. Make sure you write at least 2 pages. What were you doing? Can you see any pattern?
Very important – don’t give up before you write at least 2 pages. In the beginning, the process will not feel natural – and that’s absolutely normal. But stay with it. Your heart will eventually start to warm up.
And if you want, go even further. Mercury is now stationary so do a bit of detective work. Check your website browser, your emails, your Netflix or Youtube history. What do you enjoy reading, watching, and learning about? These are your passions. Go for them! This is what your inner lion would do.
