New moon in Leo, August 18th 2020
New moon is the energy of new beginnings. It’s the energy of very early spring when the first flower buds arrive.
The new moon is a good time to sit down and look at where you want to go next in your life and set intentions for the month ahead.
The new Moon is in Leo so the theme is around self love, letting us be fully seen by others and simply embracing our awesomeness.
Leo says, bright and boldly: It’s time to be awesome!
My suggestion to you: Find some time today or tomorrow and write down all the things that you do well or are great about you. Find every little thing you can think of. Think like a Leo…
After getting into that energy of your awesomeness, write a list of intentions for the month. The data is in. Just the act of writing down your goals increases the chance of reaching them by 40%!
The Moon and Sun are conjunct Mercury, the ruler of our thinking mind and our alchemical nature. Ideas come fast this new moon.
Write them all down. You can thank me later 😉
There is a lot of fire in this new moon. This means it’s a time to take action.
You know what you want to do. Yes you do. Now is the time to do it. The energy of the Cosmos is on your side.
Revisiting the 2017 Great American Eclipse
There is urgency around this new Moon. It is conjunct (just 3 degrees away) the solar eclipse that happened in 2017 that eclipsed a large part of the US.
This eclipse was a wake up call for many. If you felt the call in 2017 and have still not made the cahnges you feel called to make this new moon could make you feel uneasy. It’s here to remind you of the calling.
If you are one of the lighthouses of the planet, one of the many that felt the calling to come here and help the planet and humanity through this great challenge that we are in the middle of, the transition to a ne world age. You service is needed now. And this lunation will remind you of that.
Mars in Aries – Action comes easy
There is a positive helpful aspect to Mars in Aries, the planet of energy and action in it’s favorite sign, the sign of primal power.
This means that there is a lot of energy available to you to get your ideas into action, into the world. Use it well and you will have an easy momentum.

Tune into your inner fire and let it connect to the cosmic fire to propel you forward and it will give you a long boost as Mars stays in Aries until January 2021.
The cycles of nature
The New moon sets the tone for the next lunar month. Like everything else this year the lunar cycle is a bit off and for the rest of the year we will be getting the new moon at the very end of the astrological season. So tomorrow is the new moon in Leo and then on the 22nd the sun enters Virgo season.
The moon and her cycles remind us that life is not linear but cyclical. Women get a monthly reminder of this through our menstruation cycle. And all of us are reminded every month by the moon, and every year by the sun and the ever repeating seasons.
