August 2, 2016 – New Moon in Leo at 3:44 pm CDT
AstroEyes Evolutionary Astrology – Cathy Lindsey
New Moons are manifesting Moon’s, and this is quite the moon to manifest on. This Leo New Moon is also sharing the sign of Leo with Venus! Leo is about the big Heart, Romance and Love….and Venus is about Love, Romance and Creativity! What a statement of Love the Universes is giving us at this Leo New Moon!
Leo is the “happy” energy, and it is about the “Big Heart”. The Heart, which is the new mind. The Heart is about Love. Leo is warm and generous…and those who embody the higher energies of Leo, come from the Heart. Spiritually, Leo is about living from one’s center, one’s Heart. The Leo Sun is the physical Heart and the Leo Moon is the emotional Heart! This New Moon in Leo is an opportunity for the physical Heart and the emotional Heart….to become one, and to open up fully…..as we move into and co-create the “New”. Wow….what a powerful New Moon in Leo….with Venus marching with it!
New Moons mark the beginning of a new cycle. New Moons are also the most spiritual and intuitive moons of the whole Lunar cycle. During the New Moon period….it is as if we are being blanketed in the darkest and most star filled mysteries of the nights. New Moons create a stillness in time…the dark of the night…mystically giving us the ability to easily travel back… and listen to our Souls message’s, while “seeing” all the new possibilities. It is a wonderful time to manifest, meditate and create! Each New Moon brings with it a down load of evolutionary energies that give us the knowledge to create a beautiful future.
Leo energy is also about creating……and your ability to create your future is extremely powerful at this New Moon, while sharing the Leo energy with Venus. Remember that creativity isn’t just about art…..we can create in many different ways…..art is only one of those ways. Creating a memory…creating fun….using your innocence and curiosity to create joy! Creativity thrives on love and comes from our Heart. What creative changes in many area, can you make this month? Especially centering around Love. The energies of this New Moon can also bring about increases in consciousness, confidence, and emotional healing. Leo energy can also take us on a journey of “Self Discovery”. Watch out for the grayer energies of Leo….those of entitlement, greatness and ego…..with this Leo New Moon, as you don’t want to manifest those energies. Use the positive and inspiring energies of Leo, to bring about more love and creativity. Remember…Leo is also about the simplicity of childhood….honoring the child within you. It is time to play, have fun, be spontaneous, and fall in love all over again…… Listen to the wisdom of the child within you.
Leo is also the sign of Kings and Queens. So as you are creating fun and are inviting your friends and family over…..be sure to extend good hospitality to all those Souls that are sent to you. This New Leo Moon is encouraging us to not only to open our hearts, but to also make efforts to Follow our Hearts. Even if you have to take a risk or two. Let’s manifest and creatively surround both them and ourselves…..with the high energies of Leo! The Universe is making sure that we don’t miss the opportunity to have fun, be joyful, play and create, as we open up our Harts to all……
Venus which is also about Love and creativity… is trining (harmonious energy) Uranus (change, community, humanity, genius)…..which is part of the ongoing Cardinal Square with Pluto (passion, transformation). Giving us the ability to transform our relationships (of all kinds), and help us get to the bottom….and to the heart (Leo) of things. Visionary thinking for all humanity…. and some break through moments centered on “coming from the heart”…..are part of this energy. With the courage of Leo and the constant changes of Uranus….bringing out the emotional heart energy…. can be both shocking and exciting.
Venus is also conjunct the ancient star Regulus. Perfect symbolism from the Universe during this Leo New Moon… on the main theme of Love! Regulus is in the constellation of Leo (coming from the Heart). Regulus is said to be the Lions Heart! Regulus is also one of four Royal Stars that helps guide humanity’s evolution….it is about humanity’s shift into becoming heart centered. Regulus is also the closest star to the Ecliptic and therefore closest to the red carpet path of the glorious Sun….a symbol of Archangel Raphael…..one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse and a great Protective Healer.
Saturn in Sagittarius (Joy, optimism, travel, higher learning etc.) is trine to this Leo New Moon. The trine energy is a harmonious energy that seems to be saying….it is not only time to work (Saturn)…but it is a time to play (Leo)!! With Saturn trining this New Moon…..it gives us the ability to balance our intuition with reality. Giving us the energy to bring into form (Saturn), the high intuitive insights that you can receive during this New Moon. With the Leo energy of children, fun, creativity….and the Sagittarius energy of joy and travel…..the optimism is high as we bring our creativity, our dreams… into reality.
You may have noticed that things are getting a little agitated out there. Mars (masculine, bravery, passion, anger, action) has just re-entered Sagittarius only a few hours before this New Moon. With Mars re-entering Sagittarius again…it brings it into the orb of Saturn….bringing their energies together. Mars being the warrior/pioneer, and Saturn being the CEO…… of the passionate quest for the winning knowledge. Which Saturn reminds us must be shared and acknowledged… with integrity and respect. On August 23, Mars and Saturn form an exact conjunction…..bringing things to a head. In your individual lives, and also among powers in the world.
During this New Leo Moon….we have 5 planets (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, Eris) and Chiron all retrograde. It is a time of internalizing….a time of thinking….meditating and connecting with your guidance. When planets are retrograde…..you internalize those areas of your life…. When there are that many planets retrograde it can feel like things have “slowed” down a little. Most people won’t lash out, without thinking first…..as they tend to think about it before talking about it. As you think about things…..you purge things. It is still a time of moving away from people, places, and things that are not vibrating where you are vibrating. That is part of your purging…..purging the old, so the new can come in…..so you can create the “New”. Meditate on these retrograde energies and the things that appear as if they are no longer vibrating where you are currently vibrating…..just let them easily slip through your fingers….as you peacefully move beyond.
Remember also that this New Moon happens on the back drop of the on-going Cardinal Square (a square is the energy of friction and stress..but a growth aspect) widely between Pluto and Uranus (transformation, change, urgency, birthing of new and things being put right in our faces)…..and the on-going square between Saturn and Neptune (Reality, grounded, Father figure - Saturn…..and spirituality, intuition, channeled creativity, the psychic – Neptune). Wow, what a menagerie of energies!
Again it can be a very challenging time for all of our relationships and the challenges can come from deep down in our Souls The Universe is putting these things right in our faces…so we can’t miss the changes we need to make……rather we want to make them or not. Pay attention to how you feel or react around certain people, places or things…..listen….. Whatever isn’t vibrating where you are right now….the Universe is asking you to distance from……in the kindest way possible. Surround yourself with people, places and things that make you feel happy, joyful, and optimistic. Surround yourself with those that give you the feeling of real Love!
It is still a time to be careful…as there are so many energies affecting us at one time. We have been down loaded with many energies over and over for several months. These energies, seeds, are now beginning to grow……and now it is time to start weeding out the ones that are no longer working. All these energies can make us unbalanced at times…..dizziness, lack of sleep or falling asleep as soon as you sit down…..are also part of the energies. The Earth is also receiving this energy through weather and Earth events…..so she is also having to adjust.
This Leo New Moon reminds us that we are powerful creator’s…manifesto’s, and that we need to work with our passions. Start something new….a new project….a new way of looking at things.. Move away from anything that puts out your Joy or Creativity. It is time to start measuring who you are and your success… by Love and Joy…. instead of physical things. Trust and follow your Heart!
Take time to play each day….use your creativity and enjoy what you create….socialize with others…..and let yourself feel love and then share it! Let the Divine Child that is still within you shine through! Let yourself feel Joy. Meditate, and Manifest and create a wonderful/beautiful world for yourself and for all Humanity with this very powerful Heart centered New Leo Moon. Take time to embrace your childlike innocence and just let yourself…run, play, laugh, create, and Love!!!
This is a very powerful New Moon….. use the creative energies of Leo and Venus to manifest your own reality and a beautiful world for all humanity. I wish everyone a beautiful and magical New Moon Period
