This month’s New Moon will be in Leo. Astrologically, the Sun and the Moon will form an exact conjunction at 16 degrees Leo 13 minutes at 9:49 AM Eastern Time.
The conjunction will occur in the 11th House which signifies engaging with groups of friends or organizations. 11th house energy also means collaborations with people attracted by a common cause, principle, or purpose.
The Sun is in its sign of Rulership in Leo. The combined energy of the New Moon and
the Sun in Leo brings much strength. View this as an opportunity to shine.
This New Moon gives you the chance to have your voice heard and provide leadership in any group activities that you are attracted to. Especially if you have planets in your Natal chart conjunct at 16 degrees in Leo or trine in the signs of Aries or Sagittarius at 16 degrees.
Leo New Moon – The Yod
While there are other interesting aspects present in this New Moon chart, the one that naturally caught my eye is the Yod (or The Finger of God). It is formed with Neptune in Pisces in the 6th , Pluto in Capricorn in the 5th with its Apex planet of Mercury in the 11th House.
The illusions of Neptune and controlled manipulation of Capricorn can be resolved by the powerful voice of Mercury. Where in your own life can you use your powerful Leo voice to communicate your ideas? Cut through the illusions and games and provide new insight.
Lion’s Gate 8-8
What is the Lion’s Gate Portal? It’s a combination of the Sun being in its ruling sign of Leo and the numerological significance of the number 8 (which is amplified on 8/8). The intensity of the frequency of number 8 is the reason why August 8th is considered the peak moment for the activation of the Lion’s Gate. Adding in the energy of the New Moon on the same day, this makes for a lucky day to manifest success and to turn your dreams into reality.
What can you do to celebrate the New Moon and the Lion’s Gate activation?
Why not join the Global Drums Gathering at 11:00 AM on Sunday, August 8th at the Sumter Landing “Gazebo” in The Villages? Given that this year, the New Moon in Leo is occurring within hours of this drum gathering for Love, Light, Peace and Unity, it should be a very energized happening!
