This Leo new moon is occuring at the same time as the Lionsgate 8/8 portal and during the shadow period of Uranus going retrograde… talk about intense energy to say the least! The liongate portal occurs each year when Sirius aligns with the sun and is associated with spiritual activiations and downloads and from a mythological aspect there is a strong connection to the Goddess Isis and Osiris as Sirius is known as the Star of Isis and Orion is Osiris. This time was the Egyptian New Year and the time of the Nile rising bringing with it fertility and renewal. You can watch the in depth video for this energy here:
This Leo moon is the perfect one to instill us with a sense of confidence to go after our dream life! With those potent downloads from Sirius and the Sun – Leos ruler and this new moon occuring close to the planet of communication and wisdom, Mercury, who is aligned with expansive and luck bringing Jupiter – what ever you set out to achieve this new moon holds a lot of potential to be the life changing seeds we have been dreaming about.
It is important to note that there is a tense interaction between Saturn and Uranus playing out at this time and these two planets may make us feel impatient and impulsive, Saturn is asking us to think about the long term and ensure we are not just acting from the ego.
This Leo energy is perfect for those bold, romatic gestures or to relax and have fun in a social sense. You may also feel more creative at this time and your inner child will want to play – allow yourself some indulgence during this time.
There is a caution to look out for ego clashes at this time and with Saturn and Uranus in the mix if you have a disagreement with someone, try to take a step back and not engage in a stand off or argument as neither side will be able to see past their own feelings.
There may be a tendancy to want to engage in drama more or to lay about instead of getting on with things – this is key to find a good balance between work and play especially as this new moon begins a new 6 month cycle. Spend some time pampering yourself but also stick to some kind of routine to ensure you get the basic chores and necessary tasks complete so they dont pile up and become a mountainous task later.
Above all else this is a potent time to reflect and plant the seeds for your future and the goals and dreams you wish to manifest especially for those who wish to launch a creative project or be in the spotlight in some way. You can find the tarot reading for this new moon here:
