The Moon completes its transit of Cancer at 4:35 AM EDT and enters Leo. Shortly after the Moon enters Leo, the New Moon occurs (at 5:46 AM) very early in the sign (in the first degree).
This lunation is an excellent time for formulating goals regarding “all things Leo.” We might concentrate on new ways to enhance our romantic life, creative endeavors and hobbies, and relationship with children, as well as to build our self-confidence and healthy pride in ourselves. With this strong Leo energy, we have the chance to make significant changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. It’s time to make some plans and set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs. Next month, a New Moon will occur again in the sign of Leo, this time late in the sign, and will be a Solar Eclipse and particularly potent.
With the New Moon occurring at the very beginning of the sign of Leo today, there is an emphasis on brand new beginnings. With the Sun and Moon applying to a conjunction to Mars, we should watch for prematurity and impulsiveness. However, it can be a courageous, proactive time. The desire to win, initiate, innovate, and take action is strong, particularly when it comes to creative and romantic matters.
The Moon is void from 2:06 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Uranus), until the Moon enters Leo at 4:35 AM EDT.
