WORD FOR THE MONTH
Strength, desire, sensitivity, self-discipline, confidence, joy, creativity, initiation, and empowerment.
Happy first New Moon in Leo! That’s right, later on this month we have a second Leo New Moon (which happens to be a Total Solar Eclipse). The Universe must feel that we need double of Leo’s vigor. Leo is symbolically represented by the Sun, bringing us energy to be happy and live with joy. The Sun is the center of our solar system and provides us the light needed for all things to be. Persian poet Rumi once wrote “Every tree becomes beautiful when touched by sunlight”. Draw Leo’s rays of light into your heart to illuminate your beauty. There is a lot of change coming up and Leo is preparing us by providing the ability to focus within and to find wisdom for next steps.
This first of two Leo New Moons starts at the very beginning (0 degrees) of Leo’s constellation in the sky, carrying with it a sense of primordial essence. Where do we come from? What are our beginnings? How do they affect us? This is a fantastic time to review what morals, values, and beliefs you carry from your youth, your beginnings. Do they still fit? Are there patterns that need to be broken? Leo sheds a lot of light on these parts of ourselves if we notice them and open our hearts. Leo’s energy can help you get through any memories of childhood trauma that still influence your life today. Stand tall and confident in front of these personal issues this month and break any of those chains with Leo’s provided strength.
Pull the reigns, take the wheel, get in the driver’s seat, however you hear it, do it. It’s your fire that’s igniting this New Moon. Don’t let other forces direct your soul and interfere. Don’t let them put their venom on you. Take charge with fire, as the energy of the Leo New Moon will provide force to make this happen. It may be time to roar and say what’s needed. Tap into your personal power that’s been stashed away. Bring forth your light this month. Don’t worry what anyone thinks, but instead roar louder than them and feel what empowerment is like. Don’t follow the crowd, but instead be authentic. Feel the immense joy you will have when you do.
Your creative self-expression will be at a high this month. Tap into this and apply it as needed. Where are your talents at? Do what gives you joy and makes you smile. Go after what you want with fiery energy. Step into YOUR power. Yes, you have power, and lots of it. Don’t give it away to others. Reclaim it.
The lion symbolized by Leo has a sense of an ego impulse to have it all; rich, famous, smart, beautiful, sexy, respected, health and well-being, a beautiful house, a nice car, diamonds… What do you really desire? As you become more conscious of your soul’s purpose, your desires will align authentically as well. Start by digging deep into your heart to find what you meaningfully desire. This intense self-awareness will bring true self-consciousness allowing you to be aware of your purpose. It is time to set along this path of inquiry if you haven’t already.
This New Moon cycle in Leo provides us an opportunity to love thyself. Take notice about what’s so great about you and find moments for self-love. Indulge and get back in touch with all the shimmery aspects of yourself. Where do you shine? What makes you amazing? Why do people turn to you? Don’t cover this light, but instead let it shine forth brightly and allow the Universe to attract back to you those on your vibration.
As always, a drop of wisdom - integrate awareness of another person’s reality, instead of judging them.
With light and love,
HOW TO MAKE A NEW MOON LIST:
Gather paper and a pen, pencil, marker or other type of writing utensil.
Review the focus areas for this month and begin to think about how they apply to your personal and professional life.
Write a list of what your hopes, dreams, goals, priorities, wishes, and prayers are for that moment. Typically no more than 10 is recommended. Be very specific, or extremely vague.
Review last month’s list and revise them on this month’s list, if necessary.
Place your notes somewhere safe and special to you. Some tape them to a window, under a lit candle, or leave them in their notebooks on their desks. Create the space that works for you. Leave it there all month until the next New Moon.
Allow and have faith in the power of inter-connectedness in our universe to manifest your list.
