New Moon in Leo

The New Moon in Leo asks us to initiate courage, strength, and vitality into the next phase of our journey.

With the last Full Moon in Aquarius and the present New Moon in Leo - this axis is telling us to be brave and honest with our curiosities, our truths and our creative potential (See Aquarius Full Moon Blog post).

I don’t know about all of you, but I’ve been feeling a huge shift into a new direction and I know I need the courage and strength this Leo New Moon will bring to move into the next chapter of my life. This shift calls for creativity in how we decide to reinvent ourselves or our work. Leo is STRONG, it takes the stage, demands attention, and plans to grasp what it needs to continue to grow just as massive as the sun.

Leo the sun ruled fire sign is all about joy, creativity, and the fountain of youth we all have access to inside of us. This moon is activating our inner child. It’s vital to stay in a place of childlike curiosity as we navigate this transition and to be okay with not knowing what’s next. Make sure you are open to exploring new possibilities during this time and allow your imagination to run wild.

Leo is a fixed fire sign ♌️. Fixed signs are energy stabilizing. As a fire sign, Leo deals with strength, core values, motives, passion, and drive. Leo energy gives us that boost we need to go through the ring of fire that lies ahead. Ask yourself, what are you so afraid of? Fear of the unknown? What is meant for you to reach out for and claim as your own just like the fierceness of the Leo Lion. Is there a fork in the road that is testing you? Which path will YOU chose to take?

The Sun or Strength card in the tarot are associated with Leo. Two of the strongest and most powerful cards for perseverance and determination.

New Moons are a positive time to MANIFEST. So use this energy to your advantage with making all of your wildest dreams come true.
