The ultra creative and follow your bliss Leo New Moon is August 17th at 8:54 am PDT, 11:54 am EDT and 3:54 pm London/UT.
To bust out at the Leo New Moon, leave your adult fears and worries at the darkened lunar door. Sun and Moon are at 25 degrees Leo, so check this point in your chart for potential outbursts. This fixed fire sign is warming to the spirit -- the prime imperative is inspiration. It's that impulse, with the signs that have always been there, that shows you the brightest path.
This summer (2012), with Mercury in retrograde Leo, has been one of finding direction through what moves the heart. It takes enormous focus to avoid being swept up in the anxious dramas of the day. It seems simple, but it's the road less traveled. You bring back your energy from what dilutes your uniqueness, what keeps you focused outside yourself. What are you here to do?
For some, this is a dark time. But there are opportunities for supersized creative growth, if you're able to bring the focus back to yourself. Be a little self-centered, in a good way. This is a time when your uniqueness is magnified, making it easier to see a lighted way forward.
Leo is about whole-hearted engagement in life. And New Moons give you a chance to renew yourself, and draw from the rich and restful void. Making a New Moon collage is a great idea, with a particular focus on your favorite things. This is a very visual sign (Leo) and we don't want to dilute the enthusiasm with too much talk. Get in your instinctual groove.
At the New Moon, we magnetize what we want, our heart's desire. When you leave room to be surprised, you're open to being shown by spirit, what's ready to be grabbed from the creative dark. How do we make it real? This is unique to each person -- half the battle is clearing the barriers (and distractions) that keep us from the full magic of the New Moon! Dreams are super vivid, and being inspired is a whole body-mind-spirit experience.
When the Moon is new in Leo the Sun is also in Leo.
The New Moon is a time of beginnings. You can set intentions that grow with the lunar light and reach fruition at the Full Moon.
