Moon Dark-New in Leo23 Jul 2017, by moon&sky in

Fiery times (6 planets in Fire signs; 4 in Leo). Moon dark-new calls us into reflection and new beginnings. In Leo, we are en-couraged to play; to fill ourselves up with passion, Light, warmth, joy and radiance; and to step into our regal, royal, sovereign selves.
There’s a lot of masculine energy about for action and, with much of it expressed in Leo, we are gifted with big heartedness, joy, stamina, strong will, and optimism. And how wonderful that all this occurs along with the dynamic of Magdalene Feast Day to help ground gifts of the feminine deep (along with feminine forces of Pallas Athena, Vesta, and Juno aligned in Grand Earth Trine to ground the powerful Leo energy ;)). That said, given the dominance of Fire energy, do remember to focus on grounding and breathing deep. I also encourage you to find time by/with water, and certainly keep yourself hydrated.
This New Moon initiates us into the eclipse season (partial lunar @ full and solar eclipse at next new Moon again in Leo). We’re in a period of illumination, amplification, and transformation. It is time to tune in to and turn up our inner fire. Time to burn away and vanquish fears. Time to make mutable that which is seen as fixed. Time to fire up passion and creative expression. Time to more greatly empower and rebirth our inner warrior of the heart.
With the lense of your heart-felt gaze
Look within and reappraise
Remember all to which you aspire
Fears and lacks now set afire
Hold in your hands all that you love
beneath your feet and above
Play, love, joy and courage sing
Express your radiant everything
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
May fiery passion empower your heart warrior and
may your radiance shine ever-more bright this Moon
