NEW MOON IN LEO AUGUST 14, 2015
This New Moon falls in the sign of Leo emphasizing creativity, self-expression, and the courage to follow your dreams. A New Moon means that the Sun and Moon are in the same sign, Leo is fire sign, and symbolizes passion, joy, and the life affirming positive energy of the sun. The great Sphinx of Giza, the guardian of the pyramids, once had the face of a lion to symbolize the Age of Leo. The symbol of the Lion (Leo) has been used by royalty for ages; we even call our heroes “Lion-hearted”. We are now at the “eclipse” of the old Age of Pisces, and once again, the galactic wheel turns. As we approach the crest of the cosmic tidal wave which will break with the Full Moon Eclipse on Sept 27th (more next month), it is important to remain centered in your heart chakra and to feel the presence of the Solar Angels guiding humanity forward into the Age of Aquarius. The formula for miracles to occur: Keep your feet on the Earth, your eyes on the Heavens, and your Hearts open…
All New Moons are the perfect time for “seeding” our intentions. This New Moon in Leo is about having the courage to create your heart’s desire, and express your authentic self. It is about the outer expression of your inner child’s need to shine. Nothing makes a Leo happier than being appreciated for his or hers talents and gifts. What is your passion? What feeds your soul? Follow your desire… Think of the feline kingdom (ruled by Leo). Cats do as they please…cats are comfortable in their bodies, fluid and free. If you have the Sun, Moon or Ascendant in Leo, this is the perfect time for you to show your true colors and allow more spontaneity and fun into your life. Wherever Leo falls in your birth chart, this New Moon is a time to get in touch with your body, your sensuality … and allow more joy into your life!
Venus in Leo with New Moon highlights our connection with the Feminine Goddess of Love and Beauty. Venus in Leo wants to be loved, appreciated and recognized for her gifts. Her idea of romantic relationship and partnership is highly creative and “fun” …she has no time for martyrdom or playing the victim role. Venus is also retrograding at this point (until Sept 6),
so you may expect people from your past relationships to reenter your life at this time. Whether this is in 3D “real time, or the dream state, Venus is asking you to reclaim part of yourself which you may sacrificed or lost in terms of past relationship. Because Venus is retrograde in Leo longer than any other sign this year, it is a time of major healing of the heart.
Jupiter in Virgo:
Jupiter, the King of the Gods, has just entered the sign of Virgo for the next year. Virgo is the sign associated with health, work, critical thinking, and the resources of Mother Earth. Virgo is a very “no nonsense”, practical sign. How are we going to expand our vision of the future to incorporate more jobs, better health and improved quality of life? Jupiter holds the answer: stop blaming everyone else for your problems and do something constructive to change the situation; Honor Mother Earth and stop raping her resources. In a summer filled with hyperbole and empty politicizing about the future, Jupiter is asking us to be very discerning, to read between the lines, and to not be swept away by empty promises or wishful thinking. Virgo is also the sign of Great Mother Goddess. This is going to be an amazing season for crop circle formations and “messages” coming through at vital energy centers on the planet (ley lines, sacred sites, mountains, rivers, etc.). Spend some time in nature (“unplugged”) and just listen.
