Here we go again. Are you so programmed and conditioned that you would rather hear about the threats regarding al Qaeda which are supposedly going to take place in August? Now please understand that this credible threat may be a fear factor to ensure that your joyful month is ruined if you get pulled into it. It makes no sense since according to the “top WH sources” al Qaeda no longer has the capability to do what is being said about it. And then there is the A-Rod circus and impending suspension. Are you being entertained enough? The darkness abounds among us and keeps trying its darndest to regulate, control, restrict and hogtie your ability to see who you really are and how to manifest the best life you can imagine. Did you know that it was Friendship Day on this past Sunday? You can choose the darkness or the joys of life.
How many people around you are confused and out-of-control in their thinking or behavior? Gee whiz, some friendship day it was. And what does this have to do with the NEW MOON in LEO? Well, it certainly shows me some of the more negative traits pertaining to that sign. EGO…EGO…EGO and more EGO. Take a look at your friends and ask yourself how many are true friends. Are they there for you totally, fully, completely? Friends are hard to come by these days. Many in this world have become self-absorbed and see little beyond their own circle of family and associates. So, does your friendship matter? That’s only the tip of the iceberg. A true friend loves you for you not for what you own, think, feel or otherwise. They are there for you no matter what goes on. Be blessed if you have one, maybe two in your lifetime. How would it be without that individual or two in your life? I celebrate you and your true friends.
The NEW MOON in LEO occurs Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 5:51pm EDT in 14 degrees 25’. This NEW MOON truly gives you the ability to take a risk and open to an opportunity that may present itself right in the hour that the New Moon takes place. From 5:21pm EDT to 6:21pm EDT is a prime time. So keep your eyes open and if there is something you truly wish upon a star to happen, then go for it, intend it and watch what happens. The timeframe is very short so do pay attention. The NEW MOON in LEO is about childlike play, creative activities and lots of applause. Find your enthusiasm and make it infectious for others to join in whatever you are doing. This dynamic energy will light up your chart in whichever house it occurs. Begin your dream right now at this time. Reach out and connect to whom you need to speak. Allow the love to flow from your heart to that special someone. Do it now at this time. See the difference you make in someone’s life. If you need to change something, now is the time to do so. How will you incorporate the energy from this NEW MOON in LEO? Will you choose to be having fun, being generous, magnanimous, confident, warm and caring or will you let your ego run the show? This is a perfect time to intend and do it right then and see how you can change your life for the better. August 8 into August 9 is a very beneficial time for creating something new.
When the Full Moon takes place in 2 weeks it may be shortly after that you see the results of your intentions. Open your eyes to see what it is showing you. A bit of a bummer though- Chiron inconjuncts (150 deg.) the SUN/MOON in Leo. The Sun may not seem to shine as brightly at this time since Chiron is asking you to adjust something. The rays may be a bit dimmer but things are still moving on. Perhaps you will see the need to adjust something in order to create more flow. No hesitation please. Just make that adjustment and walk through it.
NEW MOON in LEO is perfect for enhancing romantic relationships. Stop hiding behind the door and reach out to your lover, partner. It is such a special time so remember to use this energy wisely. If you are expanding a creative enterprise please know that it can bring you many accolades if you rev it up now. Or if you are just beginning a new creative project, let the magic flow and you will notice that many are interested in your workings. You can shine in whatever you do with this New Moon. Go for it. Be a Leo for the next 24 hours and be the star you were meant to be. Remember that NEW MOON in LEO loves to dance. Tango anyone?
If you are a Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius or Taurus with planets from 12 degrees to 19 degrees of those signs, you will feel this NEW MOON in LEO more intensely and significantly. Those of you who have planets in those signs will also feel some effect. With Mercury coming into Leo on Thursday, August 8, you will find yourself able to persuade and convince others more at this time. There is a truly great trine from retrograde Uranus to the New Moon. Expecting a declaration of love, dear one, you may get it. What about a big surprise…good possibility. Enjoy your life and go out and party. This New Moon conjuncts my progressed ascendant. Is this a new look or new way to communicate or maybe just getting my message out there? I need to watch for being too sensitive. Really?
This is a time to shine your light like any Leo does. Let the love come forth fully from within your heart so others feel it. This is a time of authenticity. You are the star of your galaxy and show people your heartfelt truth. Uranus trine the New Moon as I said earlier will help to wake up some of you from your slumber. Just a reminder that Uranus still squares Pluto and that will try to drag you into a hassle if you allow it to do so. There is still much calm and flowing going on, so stop the disruption before it gets a grip on your life.
Before I sign off I would like to share a short meditation from the Lakota Sweat Lodge cards. “I release myself into the moment, into the flow of time, events, cycles and emotions and I find grace and fertile ground along the way. Leave the past behind and take only that which will nurture your future creatively.”
May your blessings be many! Have a glorious NEW MOON time. Until again. Love, Jan
