The New Moon in Leo will take place on August 3rd 2016 at 06:43am here in Brisbane.
New Moon’s herald the chance of a new beginning and it can be a powerful time to set intentions.
Looking at where this Moon falls within your birth chart gives clues as to the potential seeds that are being planted.
Leo is the sign ruled by The Sun ☀️ and The Sun denotes our core essence in Astrology.
The placement of The Sun, along with the themes of the house(s) in which we find Leo, represent where we connect with our deepest joy 💖, what lights us up ✨ and what fulfils us ☺️.
What has arisen for you this week in relation to these themes?
Which house is the New Moon 🌙 highlighting within your chart (Look for 10 degrees of Leo ♌️)?
… and do you have any natal planets falling around 10 degrees that will also be triggered by this Moon?
Neptune and the South Node in Pisces are forming an inconjunct with this New Moon reminding you to reconsider your dreams; the precious dreams held deep within your being since the day that you were born into this lifetime.
Where we find Neptune and The Sun, we can also meet with the impossible quest for perfection, self-doubt, irrational fear and a lack of confidence.
This is the proverbial “rock and a hard place” – the choice with Leo is to dare to be seen or to spend your life wishing you could!
You are More than Enough.
You are a Radiant, Creative, Being of Love and You have Unique Gifts🎁 to Offer.
Why not set the intention at this New Moon to Let Go of all that is Holding You Back from who you wish to Be in this World?
How can you Express more of You; especially in the area that is being activated within your chart?
The Trine to Saturn indicates that discipline and a willingness to take responsibility for your future can help with that.
Why not do something scary and take that next step?
No more Hiding.
The Square to the Black Moon hints that it could be time to reconnect with your Inner Power.
Have you been giving this away?
… perhaps, through failing to take charge of your life or through failing to erect appropriate boundaries with others?
You may find yourself embroiled in life’s dramas (your own or other’s), but perhaps this month may be better spent making steps to becoming the star of your own life.
The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is Leo 11: “Children On A Swing In The Safety Of A Huge Oak Tree” bringing to mind images of fun, carefree play, support and safety.
Look to those who give you encouragement at this New Moon and Give Yourself Permission to truly Embrace who You are and to chase your Bliss.
That joyful expression of your deepest self!
You don’t have to know all the answers and you don’t have to rush.
You can do it in your own sweet time in relation to what you can comfortably manage.
Now could be the time to lay strong foundations whilst remembering the importance of balance within our lives.
Working for your dreams whilst remembering to enjoy the journey and to give Gratitude for all that you are and for all that you have in the present moment.
Neptune can also ask us to acknowledge where there may have been an over-emphasis on dreaming the dream and not actually doing anything to actualise it or perhaps feelings of victimisation are strong at this time.
You are the creator of your destiny. You have the power to change your life and You can create a life that you LOVE.

For me, this New Moon is falling in my 7th house. The house of personal relationships and other people.
I have been reminded of late just how much encouraging others lights me up.
I feel a deep desire to help others; especially in helping them to understand themselves (Leo also rules my 8th house of the psyche) and to reconnect them with their innate essence so that they can live fulfilled and joyful lives.
This Moon is also making an exact aspect with my Midheaven (career/outer status) reminding me that this is the foundation of Mother Earth Astrology and Natural Healing – to empower others to follow their bliss whilst leading healthy and whole lives.
Leo is associated with Royalty and Leos love to be adored.
On that note, I have to own that ‘The Queen’ has also been well and truly re-activated within me and the desire to be honoured a little more within the personal relationships that I share with my family 🙂
Something I’m sure that most of us Mums connect with from time to time.
Maybe flowers will make up a part of my New Moon intentions this week, along with foot rubs, massages, dinner being prepared…
Where are you seeking adoration?
