New Moon in Leo: Radiance, Moving Mountains and the Inner God/dess

Hello friends. Welcome to a brand new month and a new moon to kick it off. Cancer season brought a lot of revelations, along with a big box of Kleenex. We could sure use a break and this moon thankfully provides it. It comes without a lot of other tense aspects which in a cosmic sense is a nice exhale. It also brings us more back to the pure essence of this new moon. Leo energy at its finest is about sovereignty, bravery, creativity and SOUL RADIANCE. Leo energy also rules the heart, both the physical and metaphysical one.

As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner. – Rumi

It also presents the question, “What would LOVE do?” In a world that often offers two often unacceptable options (and political parties) there is a THIRD option. Perhaps it hasn’t even emerged or been created yet? Well that’s our job. There have been a lot of options and recommendations lately to just shut up and take our medicine or remember who we are. An awakened person is the ultimate threat to the old school and status quo. Scary? Well not to a god/dess. We moved mountains before and we can do it again. We need to not forget that. For those still here fighting the good fight so to speak, you’re stronger than you know. This year has probably given you a new, deeper glimpse into your greater Self and that is a very good thing.

When the contrast/shadow gets denser, so does the LIGHT. That’s one of the great ironies of life on Earth. This New Moon is also an important gateway on the path to the 8:8 Lionsgate which I will comment on more in depth in the coming week. One important planetary aspect to mention however, is the movement of Mars back into Sagittarius from Scorpio also on 8/2/16. This along with Saturn, will be in a comfortable trine with both the Moon and the Sun in Leo which is highly creative and dynamic.

The Sabian Symbol for 10 Leo is: PHASE 130 (LEO 10°): Early morning dew sparkles as sunlight floods the field. KEYNOTE: The exalted feeling that rises within the soul of the individual who has successfully passed through the long night which has tested his strength and his faith. – Dane Rudyhar

What a beautiful Sabian Symbol, we’ll gladly take it. Another image that comes to mind is the image from “The Sun” tarot card of the two children dancing in the Sun without any cares or problems. I was shown that with so many fire elements afoot, it is very good at initiating things (the “fire starter”) this is an especially potent time for your New Moon MANIFESTING work.

Recommendation: Let go of limitations (especially mental constructs,) imagine BIGGER, tune into your creativity/artistry and ideas that may be coming through. Celebrate unique and wonderful YOU.

Shadow energy to avoid: Stubbornness, childishness, ego maneuvering or getting “butt hurt.” 😉

Whoa, lift that mountain and give me some shelter from the storm. Lift it, lift it. Bullon Krishna, the mountain lifter. – Crispian Mills, 2016
