New Moon in Leo at 23 degrees on August 16, 2023, at 2:38 AM PDT; 6:38 AM EDT
At the end of the Lionsgate, here comes the New Moon Sun! It’s time to create a new beginning around your creativity, romance, and recreational summertime fun. The New Moon is forming a trine to the Aries North lunar node to re-emphasize the joy of starting something new. The newness surrounds itself around you being brand new. What creative juices are flowing within you now?
The Sun, the ruler of Leo, is in its 3rd decan bringing in the Aries firepower. Leo is the Fixed Fire element sign. Its energy is designed to stay high in the sky shining warm, vibrant light. With the draw of Aries, the fire shifts direction into Cardinal forces that embody creativity, risk-taking, and courage.
Uranus squares New Moon: Direct Impact!
This New Moon and Sun are in an exact square to Uranus, “The Rebel”, in Taurus at 23 degrees. Uranus pulls in Jupiter to expand his power to make a change in your life. Uranus is focused on the conquest of the lower self. This is the cosmic directive to get a hold of your ego! Jupiter is opening a portal to your inner self to show you what is there and what needs to change.
If you want command of your life and what you draw to you as experience, you can direct this power by knowing the full extent of your creative power as a divine being. What you dream of as your ultimate life, is made from both your inner and outer experiences. To control your outer experiences, you must do the inner work. If you want your outer world to change for the better, change comes from within. What forces within you are empowering your life? What forces within you are sabotaging your life? Uranus will help you see with clarity how you do it.
Savior or Saboteur? New Moon @ 23 Leo
An untidy, unkempt person
Eccentric wisdom contributes most to evolution.
The New Moon and Sun are drawing you into your inner world. This is a lunar cycle about focusing on your inner self and not on the ways you work on your outer self. Unconcerned with fashion and appearance, the Sabian Symbol is contemplating what is happening within.
The Earth is in the opposite position at 23 degrees Aquarius. The Earth is grounding you by aligning knowledge with your experiences to give you a sense of serenity and peace. How would you feel if you completely understood the how and the why of what has happened to you in your life? Especially if you have lived through very difficult times, if you knew the power behind those experiences, you would live a very elevated and extraordinary existence.
The Black Moon Lilith brings a portal of liberation from fear as she aligns within one degree of the New Moon and Sun. She empowers you with the transforming energy of shadow work during this lunar cycle. She is teaching you that the trials and tribulations you have endured, make you capable of meeting whatever curveballs life throws you will the power to hit a home run! You do this by knowing what you need to nourish your body, mind, and soul and build an extra large reserve of those energies. In this way, you will always have what you need when you need it. Put this power into action for the next four weeks.
Take the time now, to step into alignment with all the wisdom pouring down upon you and put your realizations into daily practice that is true medicine for your soul.
