“If you want to sing out, sing out!”, sings Yusef / Cat Stevens. The Leo New Moon appears at the height of the helical rising of Sirius. This 8:8 Lion’s Gate brings in the power of a new lunation and 6-month manifestation cycle. With this powerful spiritual energy, you are asked to take the “high road” when looking at your life. The Sabian Symbol points the way to joining forces with like-hearted people to do a great work of Love together. To find out where this energy is most active for you, get out your Natal astrology chart and see what you can discover!
The Part of Fortune appears to grant you Lion’s Gate wishes. At 21 degrees Leo, the Part of Fortune issues a clarion call to Starseeds to engage in the next level of their soul purpose missions. Do you have a clear sense of your purpose and direction? Now is the time to ask for and receive divine guidance. In this life, you may have to go through hardships and obstacles but you can still deliver your messages and complete your mission.
The Saturn-Uranus square pulls in the Lion’s Gate New Moon. This formation has a 5-degree opening with five points of getting clear with yourself. Check in over the next 28 days and six months if any of these energies show up in your life. Are you constantly finding yourself operating in “crisis” mode? It is time to shift that!
- Be aware of not showing true feelings and putting on ‘superficial’ shows of strength
- Be aware of complaining too much instead of getting on with your life
- Let go of clinging to false feelings of disillusionment
- Not realizing what needs to change and being drowned by disappointment
- Being seriously let down by false idols falling off pedestals
“What’s Love got to do with it?”
The Sun rules the sign of Leo and emanates FIXED Fire to light up your life. Things are getting hot as temperatures rise and emotions surge, too. Watch for any emotional wildfires that set something destructive ablaze in your life. Utilize the power of Sagittarius’ ability to see a bigger picture. Ask your inner wise council, “What is this trying to teach me?” Get your answers and move back onto the path of Spirit. This is not the time to get weighed down by stuff that doesn’t really matter in the long run. If your world is not functioning at least at 51% Love, then begin clearing out everything that is a roadblock to your path of Love. Ask, “What’s love got to do with this (the thing that has you down)?” When you ask higher vibrational questions, you receive higher vibrational answers.
Galactic Girl Scout Rule #1: Be Prepared
Vulcan and Mercury are exact at 23 degrees Leo to forge new rules for the lower mind to follow. Mercury deals with commerce and Vulcan appears to destroy fake, illusionary forms of currency. Be careful of the crypto markets. Pay attention to what your gut instincts are telling you. Do not deny your emotional and spiritual messages. Meditate to quiet your mind so that you can hear clearly how the Divine guides you through these changing times.
Pluto and Neptune, both retrograde, are working behind the scenes to help you. But the only way to access this strength and power is from Soul alignment. Uranus goes retrograde during this cycle on 08/20/21. At the time of the New Moon, Uranus conjuncts the Midheaven at 14 degrees Taurus. This is another signal about money, markets, and securities. Uranus squares the Sun and Moon creating opportunities to change quickly what needs to in order for your future to be more secure.
Chiron retrograde is supporting you with FIRE power. This energy is accessible by doing your inner work to heal your wounds. Chiron in Aries is healing the scarred identities that have developed living separated from your God-conscious divinity. Come into sacred union with your past lives that carry wounded energy. Don’t let your future vision and hope be obscured. If you are exhausted, pay attention to where you are not getting, or giving, the help that you need. This is not the time to expect the outside world to come and save you. You can save yourself by going deeper within your Soul. That is where your power is.
