New Moon in Leo

New moon time is now. The moon begins her journey to wholeness this month in fiery Leo, the regal sign of self-love. La Luna is also illuminating Venus at the gate of love and compassion.

A new moon is not a time of action. Make this a time of dark, quiet reflection. Sit with yourself and ponder what you want to begin creating in the month ahead. Reflect, release and clarify who you are and what you want.

“A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation
and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly.
Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work,
like the universe…”

~Rumi

Intense Leo Full Moon

The moon goes full in fiery Leo the lion today. Asteroid Chiron, the wounded healer, is also in a fire sign (Aries) heating things up. Meanwhile Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn are sitting with the Sun in airy Aquarius fanning the flames. Plus, a big solar wind is blasting Earth this week. To say that the energies may be a bit wild is an understatement. INTENSE is the word that comes to mind.

Like a hungry lion, this fired up energy is big and unpredictable and INTENSE.

The trick is to contain and channel all this fiery, passionate, INTENSE energy in the right direction. Try not to flail around in twelve different directions. You don’t have to do it all today.

Slow down. Get in touch with your physical body. Find ground. Then choose just one small action you can take that’s headed in the direction of your dreams. Do that.

Wild and Fiery Leo Moon

New Moon in fiery Leo with the Sun. To say that people are stirred up would be an understatement. The world is on FIRE right now.

Expect melt downs, arguments, lots of drama, passion, anger and people acting out all around you. You are probably feeling a bit of internal heat yourself.

Try not to get sucked into the center of the fire. Take a few steps back. Do whatever helps you chill out. Create a cool down routine for yourself and use it!

Hang in there. All this wild, fiery energy will shift soon.

Leo Full Moon


Full moon in audacious fiery Leo, the sign of royalty.

Place yourself at the center of your own life. Rule it! Own your power, your wisdom, your grace.

Stop playing small. It’s time to shine, beautiful one. Shine your light far and wide.

New Moon in Leo

New moon in fiery Leo, the king of all he surveys.

As summer reaches its zenith, you may feel the need to DO something big and dramatic to shift things. But with Venus and Mars in the underworld and a host of retrograde planets, now is simply not the ideal time for big, consequential actions. 

Do whatever it takes to maintain your balance. Eliminate some of the excessive stimulation bombarding you. Chill out. Slow your roll. Think everything through.

Get yin to counteract the yang of this time.

Full Moon Eclipse in Leo

‪Full moon in fiery Leo fans our inner flame and stokes our passions.
The total lunar eclipse exposes our shadow and stirs the pot even more.

Focus on acts that nurture and feed you deeply.
Self-love and understanding is needed now.‬

Dance of Light and Dark

Tonight, a Leo new Moon and a partial eclipse of the Sun.

Sacred dance of Light and Dark in our Sky.

Meanwhile…

Moon and Sun square Jupiter in Scorpio

with 6 planets in retrograde

and yang Mars squaring wild card Uranus.

Time  to reset.  Tie up loose ends and clear the decks.  Clear first and then set new intentions. Choose what you want to focus on going forward.

This current Earth-Sun-Moon cycle is 

“a call to dig deep and be fiercely honest about
what needs to change inside so that the outside can follow.” 

~Kate Rusko

“a beautiful window within which to set intentions around
a higher vibration of self-love and acceptance.”

~Cayelin Castell
