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, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative, reflective and quiet mood.
This makes rich soil for contacting your inner/higher self/subconscious, planning and setting foundations and goals for your path.
Write down what you are releasing, then burn them as you visualise and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions or 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 at their extreme ends of mutual 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. 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:
Love & Romance
Creative Self Expression
Celebration & play/fun (unleash your inner child)
I easily attract and experience happy, healthy romantic relationship.
In Romance I easily find myself in relationship sharing honestly with one who resonates with my true inner spirit.
I easily find myself expressing my creativity for its own sake, regardless of end results.
I easily find myself following the path dictated by my own inner joy and happiness.
I easily find myself involved in activities that evoke my passion and vital energy.
I easily find myself taking the steps that bring more vitality and joy into my life.
I easily find myself putting others on center stage in a way that creates positive mutual energy.
True self confidence permeates every facet of my life.
I easily allow the inner radiance of my being to shine outwardly in all situations.
This New Moon has Martial Mars, Planet of War and assertion right in the mix which adds extra fire, drive, determination and leadership. It could get rowdy so get your roar on!
The key words here are ACTIVE SELF EXPRESSION. In terms of creative self expression, just do it. Take the steps.
Leo likes to share the love so expect some generous hugs and maybe even some romance, plant the seeds if you want to see more loving in your life. Rather than look outside for someone to be your romantic ideal, how can you own those traits and be the person you want to attract? Like attracts like right?
With a tense aspect (square) to unpredictable Uranus, beware of grating gears with others and take your finger off the trigger of that fire starter! Use the clash instead to free yourself and blaze your own trails, regardless of what others around you say. You wont be taking no for an answer this month!
Although New Moons are reflective, you could find yourself celebrating with new people or in some kind of unexpected environment. Huddle up and share the warmth around the fire pit this weekend or put the iPod on shuffle and dance it out. Expect the unexpected and try not to injure others if a dance fight breaks out.
A sweet aspect (trine) to wounded healer Chiron brings in some much needed sensitivity and care, theres a chance for healing the heart and self esteem. Take time to tap into your solar plexus and heart chakras, visualise golden liquid fire there, bask in your own majesty and regency, burning out any dross that doesn’t support the highest version of you. Visualise the same in others, like a mirror, and allow the mutual radiance to grow.
