Leo asks you to express yourself creatively in the KEY OF ME, the world needs what only you can create. Give it your best Oscar-winning performance beloved!
On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, merging our conscious and unconscious aspects. Energy drops into a contemplative, reflective and quiet mode.
This makes rich soil for hacking your inner/higher self/subconscious. Get that 95% of your brain on board for future goal setting and planning.
Write down what you’re releasing, then burn as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting so plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions/affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in LEO. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other facing off in polarity.
To take it a step further draw or make a vision board for your plans, make sure you add a fruition date. Add potency by fuelling your vision with strong emotions, work in the positive rather than from a place of lack, fear etc. Feel and see your vision as if in the present. Seeds you sew in the mix will most likely germinate so make sure you cultivate exactly what you want.
Focus on areas and approaches that LEO rules, such as;
- Performance, Drama & Pagentry (think Madonna-JLo-Valli Myers-Charlize Theron)
- Celebration & play (unleash your inner child)
- Creative self-expression
- Raw instinctual ROAR power
- Fierce inner truth
- Grand gestures/generosity
- Tempering arrogance
- Releasing people pleasing (expressing your creative truth)
- The heart & solar plexus (some would argue- big hair!)
- “I express my creativity with ease, joy and abandon!”
- “My creative expression easily uplifts, inspires and brings joy to those who share in it”
- “I am easily confident in every area of my life, particularly in…….”
- “I easily try new avenues of creative self-expression”
- “I easily express & take pride in everything I do”
- “I easily appreciate & encourage the gifts, talents & creative output of others”
- “I easily express myself in ways I am appreciated, encouraged, recognized and supported”
- “I easily step into leadership”
- “I easily express my creative soul authentically in every area of my life, in a way that connects with and moves others”
- “I am easily enlighted, revealing my true self and see the truth of all things in return”
“Express yourself, don’t repress yourself” Madonna famously sang. As one of the most famous & enduring Leos on the planet, consider taking on that advice over this potent new Moon if you haven’t already. Leo is the 2nd of the fire signs and all about play!

TENSE VIBES accompany this New Moon as it has a lot of challenging aspects to other planets. (see the geek facts below). The downside is that it will be gritty, the upshot is that the energy is there to push through blocks to self-expression and creativity. You’ll need to express yourself authentically, both your true emotional needs as well as ego/identity. If you’ve been resisting, you’ll find this one extra gruesome. If you’ve utilized the backwash of the 6 planet retrogrades, as well as the ‘lions gate’ spiritual rush of uplift you’ll be on track. It’s all about knowing your needs and feels, expressing them and doing what you KNOW you need to do.
SOLAR ECLIPSE pitfalls- There’s bound to be some drama around this time-planet of expansion is pushing the limits on ‘overdoing it’ in a bid to control- If your life suddenly looks like an episode of game of thrones, its time to abdicate and pursue your own goals. Leo loves the ovation only a large crowd of admirers can give. Give your jewel-encrusted creative soul on a platter regardless of what you think others want or expect- people pleasing is a pitfall of Leo and eclipses tend to bring out the shadow. You do you, beloved.
Another pitfall this eclipse may reveal is generosity used to control others. We all love compliments and no sign loves them more than Leo, utilize discretion or you’ll be drained by sycophants you’re not resonating with. Attend to your ego and build up your own worthiness rather than relying on others to validate you.
Leo is 2nd of the fire signs- what gets you lit? Is it a hobby or have you incorporated it into your work? How can you integrate it in so you do what you love and love what you do?
The ‘house’ (area of life) this New Moon & lunar eclipse falls in of your birth chart will be where the action happens. This area of life is where you need to rule the roost, have grand taste, love a bit of drama and need creative expression. It’s often a sunny area of life so its handy to know so you can lean into it when you need to.
