If it doesn’t make you feel fabulous – Don’t do it – Don’t buy it – Don’t keep it
Two New Moons in Leo in a row, line up your ducks, that’s a lot of fire power…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 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 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, see and feel like you’re already there, 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 a 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.
Burn Baby Burn
Two New Moons in Leo in a row, line up your ducks, that’s a lot of firepower…
Review and tweak your last list of intentions, you get a second shot at this.
Be open to going out on a limb past your usual comfort zone as lightning strikes you creatively, romantically or in terms of leadership. If you need to put something to rest in those areas, this is the time to cut loose an anchor that may be holding you back. Uranus, the planet of sudden change and great leaps forward is in a favorable (trine) aspect to the New Moon, embrace the shock of the new.
Total Eclipse: Will Trump be TRUMPED
This eclipse has been at the tips of everyone’s lips across the Astro interweb as it’s path will be visible across the U.S. It also hits Trump’s chart at a critical point (Conjunct Ascendant). I’m not going to guesstimate what that will mean, however its interesting that Trump has proven to be a loose cannon in terms of some Leo keywords, ego, self-promotion and leadership (for better or worse). A solar eclipse means the Moon, which represents our emotions and what we need to feel safe, for a short time trumps the light of the Sun which of course represents consciousness and ego. Will Trump be trumped?
Spotlight on your Inner Creative
For the rest of us, solar eclipses can reset our ego and perceptions. When you turn the light out, whats there in the dark?
The more intangible yet just as valid part of ourselves that we’ve learned to give less value to can become more apparent.
This could be a wonderful time to reset emotionally, let go of the constrictions of ego, get in touch with your feels and open up to flow. How can you truly express yourself authentically from the heart? Music, art, dance, writing, inspired leadership? Can you love with the pure open heart of a child?
Those that cling to outward symbols of success and control could be facing some home truths. If you have avoided this area of life or find your inner self-hard to face it could all be feeling overwhelming if not a little cataclysmic. If you’ve denied yourself the balance of shining your light externally, you’ll have a few home truths to face and release as well. Don’t let the world miss out on your personal brand of creative contribution!
Eclipses run in cycles of 19 years so whatever theme was happening for you around 22 Aug 1998, and 22 Aug 1979 will continue to unfold under this eclipse.
Captain your own Ship
By using the sensations of our body we can anchor into the present moment as our body only exists in the now. This is the basis of mindfulness. Our mind, however, has deep memory into the past. By linking into memory we can anchor it into the present via our bodily sensations and emotions, building a positive into the present moment. This simple method and theory puts you back in the driver’s seat, in creative control of the present, past and future. Try the following…
⭐️If things get a little too hot to handle remember to breathe, long deep breath in, long sloooow breath out, from your diaphragm.
⭐️Get into your body and feel into your solar plexus area, think of a time you felt really centered in your power, really in flow, everything felt right, feel that feeling and let it grow, grow that feeling of confidence, let it radiate out like a golden light. Stay with it and build on it as much as you like.
⭐️Next feel into your heart, remember a time when you felt loved unconditionally, this can be with a person, a pet or an admiring audience! Feel how that felt and bring it into the present by bringing it into your body..let it expand out. What sensations are you feeling? Stay with it as long as it feels good and know the world loves you, and you can love the world.
