The Leo New Moon (25 degrees 08 minutes) on 17th August at 16:54 GMT gives us our monthly fertile ground for setting new intentions.
In Leo, a new start is presented in the following areas:
- being true to yourself
- to display your individuality with pride
- to allow your creative inner self to shine proudly under the limelight
With Mercury out of its retrograde motion (although still under the shadow period until the 21st), we have the energy to go ahead and think extravagantly. However, avoid getting too complacent and optimistic, especially with Mercury ruling the transiting Jupiter in Gemini square Chiron in Pisces. We may think we are able to confront our past wounds and traumas head on, but dealing with an emotional issue (Pisces) in a logical way (Gemini) may not be the ultimate answer. On a more positive note, the New Moon sextile the Saturn-Mars in Libra conjunction brings us an opportunity to express our individuality in our dealings with others. Within the confines of relationships, we can still set our personal boundaries and allow a part of us to shine through.
Out of sign aspects
Mars-Saturn conjunction in Libra trine Neptune-Chiron conjunction in Pisces (quincunx by sign) - a social interaction bringing healing, though individual differences have to be overcome.
New Moon oppose Neptune-Chiron (quincunx by sign) - a difference in ideals held by both parties. A new start coloured by idealism and illusions. A display of drama.
Venus square and oppose Uranus and Pluto respectively (compared to Mars during the Cancer New Moon) - injecting a nurturing kind of energy into the Uranus-Pluto square, adding an emotional tone into the problems at large. Tapping into feminine energy.
This new moon falls in my first house, though not making any aspects at all.
