“What better time for the Lion to inspire us with his sunny optimism? This New Moon is reminding us not to give up, that our dreams are possible with proper inspiration and determination.”
– Juliana McCarthy, Astrologer for The Conservatory
The Leo New Moon arrives at 10:41pm Eastern Time on August 18th, bringing a flood of much-needed light and optimism. This is especially welcome as Mars, planet of anger, forms harsh angles to Pluto and Saturn, triggering our anger and fear. At the same time, Venus is at odds with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, eliciting our vulnerability, insecurity, and even heartbreak.
All of this in the midst of an already paradigm-shifting year of enormous change and uncertainty!
What better time for the Lion to inspire us with his sunny optimism? This New Moon is reminding us not to give up, that our dreams are possible with proper inspiration and determination. The tides are drastically turning, and it’s more important than ever to feel our tender hearts and determine the best courses of action.
Sign of creativity, Leo also reminds us of our playfulness and artistry. We can make the most of our given circumstances, and with ingenuity, build the relationships, lives, and worlds that align with our highest imaginations.
