Now I don’t have my trifocals on but it looks like it says 25 degrees Leo 🙂
Got anything at 25 degrees Leo in your chart?
What you want to do is look for that degree, a little above or a little less. You PLACE the New Moon in your chart. See what aspects it makes, if any, to your angles and to your natal planets.
When I was studying astrology with my teacher years ago, we did this every week. We would plot important transits or Moons in the wheel. He would tell us the degree and then with the dry erase board, we’d have a map of that transit. He would use our charts as examples and do little mini readings on the spot.
The New Moon is a new start for you BUT I have a feeling this Moon is connected to your past and partly because of Mercury retrograde in Leo. This story is older, much older. An old story with a fresh vital start.
The other day I was threatening to blog about a love letter I had written. Venus rules love but Leo rules the heart. Regarding setting intentions for this New Moon: why not write a love letter. Doesn’t have to be to a person. It can be to yourself, to your dreams, to the child you were, to your mother or father, to the animals who have loved you unconditionally, a love letter to God or spirit. A love letter to your enemies, to the job you hate, to the noisy neighbors, to your body, to your health, to your sound mind. Fill yourself with love in honor of this New Moon. Then no one can harm you. No one. There are a lot of foolish people in the world. Get out of their way 🙂
As is my habit lately, let’s draw a couple cards for the New Moon in Leo and remember that the Leo New Moon can be where you will shine during these last weeks of the summer and not just that… I believe that if the New Moon makes some potent aspects in your chart, then we can see what’s coming up or, at the very least, have a little frame for you, what’s happening in your world, what’s at stake.
And I am drawing these cards with the intention of tuning in to the collective, rather than tuning in to my own personal energies and future.
Tell us Tarot what this New Moon in Leo about for us:
Wow. Stability. Greater stability overall. Emotional wealth, emotional rebirth, orgasm, independence of spirit, money coming in so if things have been slow or you are waiting for a shift, it is coming early fall probably. I see potentials and manifestation here. I also see a directive for you to call on your guides and this could be, yes, spirit guides, whatever you believe is UP THERE or around you, but this can also be mentors, teachers, authority figures. Saturn in Libra is winding down. What are the lessons? I see balance and harmony. It’s… you being strong and free and confident but also that you don’t want to be alone. If you are happily hooked up, then it’s a matter of getting close again. Relationships always have those on and off phases. I don’t mean break-ups but… times of greater or lesser closeness. These cards tell me that you are fine on your own. A whole entity unto yourself BUT you are heading towards making a commitment. Now we can also interpret this not as relationship but as business or other projects. You’re ready. See, you really are FINE but life continues to MOVE. There is some greater commitment or fulfillment coming based around this New Moon. It’s like this New Moon is an energy catalyst. It’s the push into the new cycle for you. So do find the house where this New Moon is happening. And remember that you are a partner in all this. Do your part to assist the energy.
I will pull one more card and I don’t even have a question. I just feel the need:
Oof. Options. That’s what this stability is all about, that you need to become more stable (and you will!) so that you can… feel comfortable with what’s coming.
The New Moon will sextile Mars and Saturn in Libra (a very push pull kind of energy as Mars is passion and Saturn is the tempering of passions). And the New Moon will widely sextile Jupiter (luck, good fortune). Like?
