We have a New Moon in Leo on 23rd July 2017 at 9.45 am, 0 degrees Leo. This is a very powerful degree since it initiates the quintessence and intention of the sign’s energy. As fixed fire, Leo shows us how to connect with our authentic centre, to be true to ourselves.
With a powerful stellium in Leo with the Sun, Moon, Mars in tight conjunction, this energy could help you take off. With the Sun in it’s own sign of Leo, this amplifies the potential energy available to us.
All this Leo energy shines a bright light on our leadership qualities, our authenticity and our conscious intention. We can access more courage and playfulness when the energy is in Leo, which we need if we are to go forward with our dreams in a relaxed manner.
All this Leo energy (Donald Trump has a Leo ascendant, so he epitomises Leo gone wrong), can make us too self-absorbed, and create the sort of leadership that doesn’t take others into consideration.
Put quite simply, if there is a spotlight on you, make sure you are aware of a tendency right now to prioritise your own needs, your own light and truth. It’s not just about you right now, it might help to take yourself a little out of the equation.
Allow yourself to focus on your specialness and your unique purpose to give away, without it being ALL about you. That doesn’t make you less important, it just puts things into perspective, if you are inclined to go into overcompensation for a sense of lack which we all generally suffer from at different times in our lives.
We can just be in our bodies, in connection with ourselves without trying to be more or less of ourselves. We are just enough exactly as we are – show some humility. The best leaders are humble. If you have an edge to humility, remind yourself that humility is not the same as humiliation.
True humility allows us to have an accurate appraisal of our gifts and weaknesses. It also allows us to see ourselves within the context of a greater whole, or something larger.
While it’s good to come from our centre when we communicate and orientate ourselves in the world, it’s good to distinguish between a centre from the ego and a centre from the heart and soul. Be clear what your truth is right now and where you orientate from.
A simplicity in your message will work for you now. Leo can love the drama and tries to make things more theatrical than needs be.
With Neptune making an uncomfortable aspect to the Sun this weekend, we are not quite grounded in our bodies, or in reality. We need to do a double take and make an extra effort to check out if we are reading things clearly.
Venus opposes Saturn at this New Moon. Venus rules money, values, love and relationships. Saturn brings struggle and limitation, but makes us grow up and take responsibility. With oppositions there’s a sense of culmination, and as with full moons there’s a climax to something – a project, a dream, a relationship, your money issues. Something is becoming crystal clear to you or at the very least, more known.
Perhaps something has been eluding you for a couple of months now and you haven’t been able to move forward, every way you turn, you’ve felt blocked or like there’s no easy answer. Answers might become available, or just what isn’t the answer.
Part of the solution is to get support or advice, to discover more about your options. With Gemini in Venus, it’s essential we also look outside. We don’t know all the answers ourselves. Other people can help you find the best solution to our problems. This might be what is culminating.
There’s a strong sense of illumination at this New Moon in Leo. Watch out for anger, passions running high & find a way to channel it constructively.
