The Leo New Moon is upon us! Time to celebrate heartfelt feelings, creative expression, individuality, arts and performance, play, fun, romance and kids!
NOTE: 21 degrees of a fixed sign is considered a ‘critical degree’. Even though this New Moon is well aligned to Venus, Eros (exact at 21 Leo) and Uranus, expect things to ‘come to a point.’ This can mean you dump a toleration, speak out when you have held your tongue, or even have a bit of a hissy-fit to clear the air. Expect things to move forward more evenly once you do.

The New Moon falls into the Mars/Aries decante of Leo:
20 to 29 59′ Leo is the Mars decanate. It increases aggressive and assertive powers. Apt to be impetuous and quick to act. Generous, flamboyant and needs independence. Knows what they want and how to get it. Strong romantic intentions.
Remember, Leo represents the vitality of the fiery Sun—bold, commanding, animated. It conducts energy at a higher rate than any other sign, accounting for its enthusiasm, spirit and zest for life. The natural seat of Leo is the fifth house, ruling anything that makes us feel special, unique and creative—children, artistic endeavors, literary works, dance, music, drama, love affairs and speculation.
The Sun oversees individuality, healing, vital force, identity, purpose and destiny. He symbolizes creative expression, power, courage and authority—the place where thoughts turn into actions, and deeds determine the self-worth of the individual.
Where we find Leo in the horoscope is where we need to feel distinct, special and artistic. We want to be in the limelight in some way, affirming our value, worth and merit. The fixed nature of this sign implies tenacity through certitude, giving Leo a reputation for immovable determination. The sights are always set on the future and Leo has no problem imagining how things might be.
Where is this New Moon happening for you? What intentions will you set there?
