A New Moon is a perfect time for fresh starts, as the energy of the atmosphere opens up to receive new seeds. A Solar Eclipse with a New Moon makes setting new goals, plans, and intentions even more important because its influence lasts for six months instead of four weeks. No matter what spiritual background you come from, participating in this monthly exercise can help you connect to your soul’s purpose and plan steps to get closer to it. Give yourself permission to connect authentically with yourself this month. Since we live in a Universe that is constantly moving, each month the New Moon is at a different place in our Cosmos allowing us a chance to plant different intentions throughout the year. A new cycle begins this time in Leo which is about breaking up blockages in our lives to allow for transformation.

WORD FOR THE MONTH
Vision, creativity, leadership, change, independence, confidence, honor, power, evolution, and revolution.
Happy second New Moon in Leo! That’s right, earlier this month we already had a Leo New Moon. This second Leo New Moon happens to be a Total Solar Eclipse, which interestingly only passes through the United States and is the first Total Solar Eclipse to pass over only the U.S. since the country’s founding in 1776. As global politics shake up the world, Leo’s fiery energy has a message to give, one specifically for the U.S., the other for all of humanity. Beginning and ending energies are at play here, life and death, transformation and transmutation. The Universe knew we needed to have two Leo New Moons in a row, as an extra dose of its roaring energy is needed in order for the impact to be clear.
These circumstances are not coincidental. Humanity needs a big reality check: we need to unite as one species and support each other for our future — it’s our responsibility. Leo’s double whammy informs us that a paradigm shift is needed, not these simpleton ideas that don’t address the complexity or multitude of the problems with society; how we eat, educate, do healthcare, handle disagreements, distribute justice, and more all need to change dramatically. Leo’s magnitude provides an astrological seismic movement toward major shifts. Get ready, things are about to get interesting from a collective human societal perspective. Lasting and profound changes are coming with Leo’s doubled up energy, backed by the Total Solar Eclipse.
The strong energy in this Leo New Moon is helping us shed what pollutes us. Purity, according to Hindu concept of Saucha, extends to purifying the rational, emotional, spiritual, and social contamination. Humanity at a global level is in need for some major purification from hate, a plethora of injustices, vanity, greed, debt… This is what the human race has come to? Some of us won’t have it. We have a lot of work to do. The energy of this Total Eclipse New Moon is starting this purification process and attempting to bring Saucha on Earth.
The same punch of double Leo energy can be applied personally as well. Wake up and pay attention. You need to find out right away how to use your personal power. When you use your power, what is it used for? This New Moon occurs at 29 degrees Leo, where the royal star Regulus resides, also the heart of the Leo constellation. Instead of rationalizing everything, we are being called to lead from the heart — to feel, to tap into our feelings, and promote charity and love. Draw Leo’s rays of light into your heart to illuminate your beauty. This Eclipse New Moon wants us to find our heart and begin a new story. Have a new vision that resonates with your personal inner light instead of your rational mind. This potent Eclipse New Moon in Leo wants us to align our future with our souls and will create a pathway to our subconscious allowing us to finally release things that no longer serve us. You may find this period easier to connect with your spirituality and inner personal knowledge, leading to flashes of insight if one is aware and pays attention. Be present. Reflect on your day once it ends.
Solar Eclipses block the light of the Sun with the Moon. Ancient humans believed that during a Solar Eclipse, the light of the Sun temporarily gave way to darkness in order to be transformed and awakened. Leo is ruled and represented by the Sun, which symbolizes our ego because it is at the center of our solar system providing us the light needed for all things to be. When darkness falls during the New Moon Eclipse, we are called to shed that ego and expose our true selves, also known as our soul. If you have started soul searching, it will be now that you find it. This will expose our shadows — our regrets, despairs, heartaches, fears, and deepest wounds. Dissolve them in the light. Let them finally go.
Eclipse energy can stick around for over six months, providing a gestation period until things transform as needed. So, have patience as you begin to see the changes in yourself and in society. It will take some time for the dust to settle and see the clarity and truth that will be obtained. Therefore, go with the flow and do not make sudden judgments or decisions until clarity arrives. The transformation has begun and something will end and something will be birthed. Move with the energy of change. A major societal awakening is occurring, and the more your personal life has become awakened to the vibration, the better for humanity’s fate. Impurities in humanity’s consciousness is clouding our ability for acceptance, love, and equality. The Universe is saying “enough is enough.” Those who begin purging these pollutants will collectively be the ones that save human life here on Earth. Even fate can be changed by a collective human willpower.
As always, lead from the heart with compassion, instead of the mind with overzealous will.
As always, a drop of wisdom - move towards life, instead of death
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.
