New Moon in Leo: Set the Scene!

New Moon in Leo: Set the Scene!

The New Moon in sunny Leo on 19th August 2020 is inspiring, loving, generous and creative. It’s all about doing what makes you feel good, what excites you, what you feel passionate about. This is the time to listen to your heart.  It's time for you to set the scene for a brand new start! You have until the end of August to reset your priorities based only on what makes you feel good. Blast from the past? Love at first sight? Anything could happen! This is a chance to break with the past and carve out a new path that speaks directly to your heart. 

With the Sun, Mars and Venus in the sign of Leo, this is the time for you to shine and have fun. Leo is the sign that rules the heart and most Leos have a natural warmth and generosity. This is a great time to open your heart, to be generous, to give people the benefit of the doubt, to encourage others to be themselves, and to give them your full attention. Show appreciation and gratitude for the people in your life.

Leo is all about self-confidence. If you don’t feel self-assured, as the saying goes: ‘fake it until you make it!’ Leo is a natural actor and once you start acting with confidence and pride, your emotions will follow. When you stand tall, your head high, you begin to feel stronger and your attitude becomes more positive.

Leo is playful and childlike. If you have an image of yourself as a child when you were just being you and having great fun, get it out and see if you can get in touch with your natural enthusiasm and joie de vivre. 

What does the New Moon in Leo mean?

Leo needs to be noticed, to be appreciated and to be loved. This is the key to this playful New Moon. Think of the lion in the jungle. He’s brave, fearless and proud. Where in your life do you need to be more courageous, assertive and gorgeous?

Don’t focus on what’s not working in your life. Instead, focus on creating what you do want. Focus your attention on what makes you happy, what you are grateful for, what stimulates your unique creativity, what you are passionate about.

Make a creation box. You can use an old shoe box, a jewellery box, or even a heart-shaped box. Put valuables inside it that mean something special to you, pictures of things you’d like to have in your life or create, anything that makes you feel good. Keep it hidden and let your wishes and dreams go out to the universe. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when you open it up several months later and see how many of those desires have already manifested in your life.

This is a great time to turn a hobby into a business. Leo rules entrepreneurship, so if you love painting, why not sell some of your items on the internet? If you are artist or entertainer, this should be a very good time for you. If you want to be seen or noticed, try to schedule a performance or exhibition during this time.

Do things in a BIG way. Leo is the sign before Virgo. Leo comes up with the big picture, the grand gesture. Afterwards, Virgo gets down to distilling what’s important, and turns Leo’s ideas into something practical and useful.

Leo rules romance, so for those of you looking to get into a new relationship, this New Moon is the perfect time. If you are already in a relationship, make a concerted effort to bring more romance into it: buy flowers, go for a candlelit dinner, plan a romantic trip away.

The ground is fertile for you to bring greater love and joy into your life: time to make your happiness a priority!

Make the best of this New Moon in Leo

  • follow your heart
  • fall in love
  • make more time to play
  • throw yourself into a creative project
  • be a leader, not a follower
  • bond with your children
  • express yourself
  • bask in the sun
  • follow your bliss!
 Good questions to ask yourself
  • What makes me truly happy? What does my heart desire?
  • Do I make enough room for love and joy in my life?
  • How can I have more fun?
  • Do I need to take the lead?
  • Am I getting the respect and recognition I deserve?
