The New Moon in Leo on August 17, 2012 at 11:54am EDT (8:54am PDT) is a fertile field for setting new intentions. This is a particularly creative time with the moon and sun in Leo. It’s a time to be true to yourself, to live from your heart, and to display your individuality with pride.
When the Moon is new both the sun and moon energies are aligned in the same astrological sign, and a powerful portal is opened. It’s is a time of beginnings and endings. New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you would like to create, develop, and cultivate. It’s a time of planting new seeds; whether seeds of reality or creative imagination, both the moon and the sun support your desires during a new moon.
This New Moon is supported by the fire sign of Leo. Leo brings with it confidence, ambition, loyalty, generosity, and encouragement. Leo rules the heart, and all manifesting stems from the heart. If your heart isn’t in it, then creating what you want is impossible. On the flip side, Leo can stir up drama. The Leo energy may also bring up your stubborn side or the need to dominate. Being aware of these characteristics will help you navigate through areas of yourself that need to be tended, weeding out what is unnecessary, and allowing positive attributes to grow.
Leo is ruled by the Sun. It’s time to let yourself shine. During this New Moon ideas and goals that have been percolating for a while may begin to take root and support may pop up like tiny sprouts bursting through the dirt.
Leo rules the 5th House – the House of Pleasure. It’s a great time to incorporate more leisure and recreational activities or just shift your perspective and see life through innocent childlike eyes. Perhaps one of your New Moon goals would be starting a new hobby that relieves stress such as taking a pottery class, painting, yoga, photography, or something that helps you express your creativity. Sometimes starting something new is a challenge, instead find pleasure with what already exists. Having a renewed perspective with gratitude opens different doors. As you allow yourself to relax, creativity, inspiration, intuition, and passion may be ignited, taking you closer to your dreams.
The New Moon is an introspective time where it’s easier to go within to discover the true you; what are your hopes, dreams, passions, and desires. The pull of the tides are lower causing the pull of emotions to be diminished. Using new moon rituals such as setting your intentions and meditating on them helps you remove old patterns and create new ones. What is important is that you’re creating a ritual and committing to your vision, and opening to receive guidance, healing, and support from your Creator. The Moon assists you in healing your emotions, use its power to resolve emotional wounds and begin attracting what you want.

With the New Moon in Leo it’s a time to tune into our “heart’s desires”. Leo is ruled by the sun. It’s no wonder that Leo’s are the actors/actresses of the world! This lunar cycle we all benefit from being on the center stage. Use it’s powerful energy to take BIG steps towards your goals.
In conjunction with the New Moon, we are also entering the 5th Day/5th Night of the Mayan calendar. The 5th Day/Night in the Mayan calender are two of the most energetic phases, bringing consciousness to a new level. This 36 day window is the perfect time for transitions. The theme for this 9th Wave of the calendar is about Unity Consciousness. We see this in many aspects where there has been division and chaos, people are speaking up and demanding change. We will continue to see changes on a global level as well as within our own hearts.
As a foundation is crumbling, life may feel unstable. Know that your Creator has a wonderful plan in store for you; have faith in the process, and trust the outcome will be better than you could imagine. When you feel out of sorts or fearful about what’s transitioning in your life use affirmations and meditation to keep you on track.

With this New Moon we are influenced by the fiery sign of Leo. It is ruled by the largest celestial body, the sun. So it’s no wonder that Leo’s have a strong desire to take center stage. This cycle is all about “the self” and is influenced by Leo’s attributes of leadership, hard work, generosity, creativity, adventure, and ceaseless energy. This is the perfect time to breathe new life into existing goals and evaluate your progress.
Self-expression is a big part of the Leo characteristics. How can you best express your talents? Leo supports us as we build self-confidence and discover hidden talents and dreams. Allow the inner-child to step forward and embrace the playful nature of Leo. Use the passion of Leo to follow your dreams, create new relationships or rejuvenate existing ones.
With this fiery sign we have a great opportunity to make big changes that will last beyond this lunar cycle. Let go of the schedules and time-lines, allowing this creative, playful energy to enhance your goals by bringing in new inspiration. Collectively we humans are primed for big changes, so watch any fears or doubts that surface. They are keeping you stuck in old patterns instead of creating the break-through moments that create a new path.
The New Moon is the time for new beginnings, a clean slate, planting new seeds, and is the perfect time to revisit existing goals or beginning new ones. This Leo New Moon is intense compared to the flowing energy of the Cancer cycle we’re just leaving. You may experience a new found strength that fuels your progress. It may just be the boost of energy you’ve been waiting for.
What do you want to create? Where is your attention focused? What specific situations are coming up that need your consideration? These are the questions you should be asking yourself over the next couple of days as you prepare for the New Moon. Although you may have one agenda, your Higher-Self may be bringing up what you actually need to face.
In honor of the New Moon we will be holding a live conference call on Thursday July 28, 2011 at 9pm EDT (6pm PDT) where we will discuss the energy of this new moon, ideas for setting and manifesting your goals, and a guided imagery meditation to assist you in releasing the old and integrating the new.
