The Sun and Moon line up at 14º35′ Leo on Tuesday August 6th, 2:51pm PDT / 5:51pm EDT / 9:51pm GMT
This lunation is a wake-up call! A wake-up and take creative action call. Leo is the fixed fire sign, and this infusion of Leo fire can jerk you right out of your routines. And that’s a good thing! Let this be a new beginning that propels you down a more active, self-created path. Did you feel yourself dragging around lately? Did Summer’s long days become Summer doldrums? Well, now’s a perfect time to dust off your goals and your action plan, stoke your inner fire until it’s sizzling, and take action on all the wonderful things you want to do for your business!
Early on Monday, the Moon makes a trine to Uranus, opening the door to good and productive creative changes. Uranus showers us with independence, originality, visionary thinking, and Leo moves us forward. Yes, I know change is not always easy. But you have a choice, precious. There’s always a choice. You can meet change with resistance, and resentment, or you can meet the change that will get you closer to your goal with willingness to do the internal work you need to do to get unstuck. You might find yourself coming up with unexpected solutions to what might have felt completely stuck and unsolvable the last time you looked.
This could be a breakthrough moment for you, a moment where absolutely nothing is holding you back from taking charge of your life, your work, your business.
The courageous fire of Leo (roar!) can propel you forward in ways you never even considered. Light that fire that frees your heart, unleashes your innovative creativity. You have it within you, now’s a great time to share it! The indulgent, easy-going, harmonious grand trines, that we have been experiencing for some time, are finished now, so we can get down to work.
Throughout this month the alliance between Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter may well challenge and stretch us, but Jupiter in Cancer only ever wants the best for us and Uranus in Aries simply wants us free. Together they know that freedom is worth the struggle it often takes to achieve it and the struggle itself can become a dance when we loosen up, embrace the flow and make up some new steps as we go along. Mercury in Cancer is cruising along by itself and will finally leave Cancer for fiery Leo on August 8th. Mercury in Leo is ready, willing and able to help us start to share the wonderful, innovative ideas and creations generated by the Uranus–New Moon trine.
Three suggestions for your New Moon working, for your business, for your body, for your soul:
Take some time, as close to Tuesday’s New Moon as you can, to do this work. I like to do my New Moon ritual on the evening of the third day after the New Moon, the evening when you can see the first sliver of Moon in the sky. Any day between Monday the 5th and Thursday the 8th will work just fine.
You can work at your altar, or be outside, or any place you feel connected to Spirit. As always, pick the one question that rises to the top, that feels most important, and take some time meditating on it. In New Moon workings, dealing as we are with your internal energies, it’s more useful to concentrate on one idea rather than many.
For your business
What’s next for you to create? What have you been working on that needs a little more creative energy from you?
For your body
What can you do this week to fuel your body so that your forward movement will be supported?
For your soul
What do you see in the flames? What inspiration and divine love is heating up for you?
