The Sun has recently entered Leo and will meet up with the Moon at 0 degrees. A New Moon is always a beginning and 0 degrees is also a starting point, emphasizing the new even more. This Moon is in the sign of Leo- the King, the Performer, the Artist, the Child. This is the archetype motivated to perform from the intuitive, creative place inside us. Without a lot of consideration and contemplation, it responds to the fires brewing within. After building on the courage of Aries, Leo lights up the room like a ray of sunshine. It is likened to the energy of a child that is reliant upon the moment and the unfiltered expression of what arises. Children’s comments and minds defy rational logic sometimes. When a small child sits down to draw, they say things like “I am going to draw a masterpiece”. The sky is the limit with Leo. This is how we shine our light, our creative essence is through the lens of Leo.
Additional characters include Mars who recently transitioned into Leo. Mars at 1 degree will be pumping up the intentions we set around this New Moon. Mars wants to really allow for the seed to be pollinated and fertilized making this an extra potent New Moon.
Uranus will be influencing the Moon pushing it in the direction of courage. It chides the Moon to ‘let go of fear, and what others think’, ‘ARISE’! Uranus is the wildcard and in the final degrees of Aries, it has had it with waiting. JUST DO IT already!
Mercury is trying to help us to figure out what is our creative passion. As it sits in Leo, it wants us to draw in the creative ideas and the playful ways of communicating. BE in the MOMENT.
For this New Moon in Leo, we should take some quiet time to allow what needs to arise come in. As we create from the dark Moon, allowing any and all possibility, we can keep our sights on the Sun and what it wants to tell us. How can we shine ever so brighter? What is yearning to express in us? What comes up for you when you think of your most natural state? What were your favorite games or things to do as a child?
Enter the land of make believe, and allow whatever wants to come forward emerge, without restriction and logic. Tap into childish joy and creation!
