Happy New Moon in Leo!
It’s always a good one, with the Sun at home in Leo and conjunct the ‘New’ Moon. But remember that it would be more accurate to call this a “Full Sun” – it’s a Solar moment, not Lunar. Peak Moon is the Full Moon, this is Peak Sun – and that means self-actualization.
Yes, even if you’re not sure which self to actualize or your confidence synapses have atrophied over the last several months. In fact, especially then. Thinking about the mystery of you and the redefinition of your identity based on those findings is not going to hasten the apocalypse. There’s not even an apocalypse.
There is adversity and uncertainty, which you have faced before and emerged from. Astrologically, as I will explain in the Turbulent Times update, it’s still very much a Saturn-Pluto 2020 play.
So can one little snazzy Neo Leo New Moon help? Fuq yes. It is an upsurge of self-assurance and inspiration. You recall your strengths and allies, shifting focus to those, rather than letting your mind meander down dark allies or doom-scrolling. Seriously, curate your news feed already.
The nouveau Leo largesse is available for everyone: fix your invisible crown, never mind the lockdown hair or that you keep wanting to abdicate, lift your sternum and lead by example. (Say what you want about Leos – I know they can be pretentious and loud, but they’re dignified during difficult times.)
And, it is a poignant example, but think of the unbelievable courage of the Afghan people fighting – right now – to take back their country from the Taliban.
So, did you feel the New Moon/Full Sun energy shift?
Because you’ve been asking: See Leo-Core – The Truth About The Snazzy New Moon in Leo On August 8 in the Monthly Horoscopes for my take on the double 8s, Lionsgate etc – the granular esoteric raving bit is at the bottom.
