Wednesday, AUGUST 16
A New Moon occurs in the sign of Leo this morning at 5:39 AM EDT, bringing the chance for a fresh start. We might concentrate on new ways to enhance our romantic life, creative endeavors and hobbies, and relationship with children. It’s a time to build self-confidence and healthy pride in ourselves. We might strive to assume more responsibility for our lives and give of ourselves warmly and generously.
We might aim to improve the Leo-ruled areas of our charts in the coming weeks. It’s time to awaken our “inner child” and find ways to express ourselves creatively.
This lunation is tightly squared by Uranus, suggesting surprises, rebellion, and sudden events. Because Venus is still retrograde in the sign of Leo, we’re reevaluating our likes, dislikes, pleasures, and interests, which can inform our choices for new beginnings.
Shortly after the New Moon this morning, Mars forms a trine to Uranus, and with its proximity to the New Moon, it takes on more power. We’re looking to branch out and explore our more adventurous side. We more easily let go of grudges or baggage in the name of progress. This combination encourages us to get out of a rut, innovate, or entertain new methods. It nudges us to move out of our usual bounds or comfort zones.
We are in tune with our desire to make positive changes and improve our lives. We want to feel freer in thought and action, to move forward, and to live our lives on our own terms. We are willing to take a few risks or feel more courageous than usual now. A strong desire to make things happen is with us, but we may not tolerate routine or monotony.
The Moon continues its transit of Leo until 7:15 PM EDT, when it heads into Virgo.
The Moon is void from 5:39 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to the Sun), until the Moon enters Virgo at 7:15 PM EDT.
