New Moon Leo: Shine

New Moon Leo

NEW MOON [16 Leo 14] 

– Sunday 8 August (14:50 GMT+1) 

This weekend there’s a New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. The Sun shines bright in Leo, the sign linked to royalty. The essence of Leo is to be at the heart of proceedings, the centre of attention, just like the Sun at the centre of the universe.  

Leo, the big cat, thrives when it receives plenty of stroking, accolade and admiration. Leo is a creative sign, so this is about your identity, your unique skills and talents, what makes you ‘you’. 

Make your mark this weekend, be audacious, have fun, party like there’s no tomorrow. Do your thing, find your passion, follow your heart.

Let the Sun & Moon in Leo empower you to take centre stage and show off your skills and talents. Be wary of slipping into bossiness or arrogant behaviour but don’t miss out on this chance to perform.

The Uranus Factor

There is another side to this New Moon, however, because both the Sun and Moon are square Uranus. This adds the X factor to new beginnings. 

Also, throughout August, Uranus is stationing, i.e. getting ready to switch direction. It spends the whole of August at 14 degrees Taurus. If you have key planets/angles close to 14 Taurus or the other three fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio & Aquarius, you’re likely to feel Uranus’ energy strongly. 

Uranus represents freedom, rebellion, new advancements, change & the unexpected. It’s not a time to stay put doing the same thing.  Events on or near this week’s New Moon could be controversial or bring the unexpected.

You may have to change plans and fast.  It is a good New Moon for making a snap decision. Notice where in life you’re feeling rebellious too.

The New Moon energy will kick in at the start of the new working week. Leap to it and pick up on the proactive, forward moving planetary energy.

What Does It Mean For You

Read your Sun sign and the star sign that’s three signs after your own. For example, if you’re Leo, read Scorpio too, because this is the area of life where you’re currently experiencing the Uranus factor strong in your horoscope.

  • Aries: love affairs, children, creativity, entertainment, luck
  • Taurus: home, family, your past, where you come from
  • Gemini: communication, education, local community, siblings
  • Cancer: personal money, possessions, values, resources
  • Leo: personal goals, physical body, image & appearance
  • Virgo: retreat, secrets, inner work, self-undoing
  • Libra: friends, groups, social networks, hopes & wishes
  • Scorpio: career, vocation, status & reputation, where you’re heading
  • Sagittarius: travel, exploration, higher education, knowledge, the bigger picture
  • Capricorn: joint finances & shared resources, sex, money, death & rebirth

Remember to make a wish when you first see the crescent moon in the sky a day or two after the exact date/time of the New Moon. 

Happy New Moon!
