New Moon in Leo
by Simona Schimanovich
After the last two new moons in the waters of cancer, we have now shifted into very fiery energy. We are in Leo season! Falling into the middle of summer, this sign is ruled by the sun. August brings us the New Moon in majestic Leo.
Leo energy is creative and playful – it invites us to enjoy life fully and take the center stage. Like the sun that shines in all its glory without holding back, Leo invites us to own our power and shine our light boldly and unapologetically.
Represented by the powerful lion this sign is connected to royalty and leadership. Leo energy invites us to take the spotlight and connect to your inner Queen or King.
The energy of this Leo New Moon encourages each one of us to step into leadership in your own life. We are all leaders. Take a moment to ask yourself: How are you leading in your life? How are you inspiring others around you? Or how are you holding back?
Connected to the heart the sign of Leo empowers us to live with courage from the heart and embrace our full radiance. Truth is, we aren’t serving anyone by holding back our light, right?
According to astrology, we can expect a very dynamic second half of the year…. (as if the first hasn’t been transformative enough!) Energetic Mars amplifies its fire spending the rest of the year in its own warrior sign of Aries. This brings us initiative, drive and energy but could also express in acting impulsively or aggressively. So it will be extra important to stay grounded and centred in our practices to avoid getting caught up in any drama around us.
2020 is a powerful year of transformation, dismantling old structures as we are birthing the new and moving into a time of higher consciousness.
Set your intentions under the Leo New Moon to lead with courage, act from the heart and shine your light brightly.
