NEW MOON in LEO, 22nd, Aug @4:28 am (aest) + it’s a solar eclipse. Sun and Moon conjunct, Mars is still close by, Trines to Saturn and Uranus.
Eclipses are powerful because they bring change, they open thing up, the universe steps in to lend a hand.
It’s a new moon in Leo, tapping into your heart of gold, finding the gold within you. It may take time, effort and courage to leap into the future path that this eclipse will take you, it’s energy hangs around for at least 6 months. Like most things it does take time to create and Leo is about creating something new for your future life.
Saturn and Uranus, (both dealing with future stuff), in a harmonious aspect to this new moon, solar eclipse, you may find that there will be some stabilizing, structure, to whatever awakening element that you may find yourself in.
Aquarius is the south node, the past, Leo is the north node future. It’s time to create a new road for yourself. Mars is pushing you along helping with courage, action you take and being brave as it’s time to leave something behind. It’s the only way.
The past few weeks have been a struggle for sure, coming out of the full moon in Aquarius also an eclipse, so things would have been shaken up and stirred, mentally and emotionally, felt messy and intense for sure. Here you may feel somewhat stronger and hopefully less stressed or traumatized by all the events which have taken place in that time. Aquarius, ruled by Uranus is the great awakener and on some level you have been too.
Stepping into the Leo energy, the north node, future path, leaping forward following your heart, with passion, strength, courage, and openness for a more creative, authentic expression of you and life. Finding your true spirit/passion/purpose and shine it out into the world. With a pure heart, integrity.
But it’s not easy shaking of all of the old stuff, picking yourself up, when you have been knocked down. Be brave, know you can face it all. With the spirit of a lion roaring from inside of you, find the gold within yourself once more, let go of the past traumas, and pain. I know it’s been one hell of a journey to get you here, and you are not done yet.
Find your gold and run with it.
- Pull out your birth chart, get one done to see how the influence of the eclipse energy will affect your future life.

Yesterday, you had a grand cross and many other aspects going on. Today you have a fire trine, plus Moon will conjunct Uranus.
Trines are harmonious, easy, aspects, with ease you can achieve, being a fire trine, it’s brings in a lighter more passionate feel, be creative, passionate and action you take will be easier and achieve success. The downside is you can be lazy and content with it all. With the Neptune aspects also in harmonious aspects, you may find that the slow and easy road is best.
Sun in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius, brings in some stability, holds it together.
Moon in Aries trine Sun, emotions can be more in tune with each other, some balance can be achieved.
Moon trine Saturn, emotions and being limited may lift a bit here, Saturn usually contracts, keeps it all in, here you may find some release or pressure is off.
Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries, this can bring in the random, surprise element, might spark it all up more.
Mercury is now Rx, that’s kinda slippery, going Rx opposite Neptune, it’s a blur for a few moments. Gotta get a grip.
You are still in between eclipses, keep that in mind, as that is the anything can happen place. Also it is a rough time and spot.
SUN conjunct MARS! this meet up brings in alot of energy, your mood may be better, your energy is higher, you may be more driven to take action, feel restless, as you have a burn inside of you. Of course this may mean some are driven by their ego!
The Sun shines it light here, getting you ready for a more potent time ahead, connects you with passion and drive.
Sun and Mars are wrapping up a two year cycle, endings and beginnings. Step into a new space, tap into the unknown and uncomfortable for awhile.
Venus sextiles it up with North Node, your future is calling you, know what you what and don’t want, Have some idea of what that is. Mars and sun burn away the old and past.
The combo of these two are reeving you up for what is coming your way.
Burn baby burn……

New Moon in Leo, 23rd July, @7:45:32 pm.
- Sun conjunct Moon, Conjunct Mars, trine to Chiron, square to Uranus. Venus and Saturn are squaring it up in the background.
Sun and Moon in Leo, Yeah Baby!
Mars comes along with his warrior, brave, ready to get going, take action, amped up energy. All squaring to Uranus which as you know brings in the surprise or unpredictable, I am ready for change now, vibe. Which can just make you feel wobbly and restless.
But, just hold on a tick, try not to be to impulsive or too risky, or over reactive with what comes your way.
This is a starting point a new moon of planting your intention for the next cycle. Leo is about heart, flowing yours, being creative, passionate, but most of all taking action from this place, being passionate and driven for something that will allow you to shine out in the world, no matter what that is. To find your Joy, to be able to be inspired and sparked up about yourself and your life. This is about, you feeling free to be creative especially when it come to expressing yourself, that pure essence of who you are, smiling, being playful, having fun, tapping into the bliss of you. Letting this shine and be seen.
You want to feel like that you are stepping into a new phrase of life, with a freshness of your being.
Chiron is healing, clearing away all of the old, left over stuff, people, illusions, situation that you hopefully have been working on so you can start with a level of newness and freshness, with a spirit more open and free. Not still bogged down by the burden of the old still on your back. This is important.
Venus is building to a square with Saturn in the background, you may feel a lack or not good enough, try not to over compensate for this feeling if it comes your way, by being loud, to act out, be dramatic, when not getting the attention you want, when you don’t feel special, or you feel rejected, this can just make it all so much worse. Work (Saturn) through whatever this is for you. Take logical, practical, mature approach and steps to bring the healing in. Chiron is in this mix up, healing is available but through the work.
It is Leo energy with fire in the chart, try not to be too proud, filled with too much pride or confidence as it may not serve you in the long run or get you through to the other side.
The Sun strides into Leo, sharing the Leo lime light with Mercury, Mars and the North Node. Plus you have a new moon in Leo happening and this is also the beginning point to the eclipse season.
Express yourself with passion, heart, open to play, fun, lightness, lighten up and laugh. Connect with your purpose, what makes your soul soar and roar, what inspires you, what stirs the fire within.
Leo time, be confident, be creative, radiant and shine. Find ways to be creative, show your talents off. Some may struggle with this energy, others will love the special attention they get during this time. Look at your birth chart to see what areas need attention, what areas need to be sparked up more for you to shine in your own special way.
If you know your birth chart look at it, as this will let you know where all this is going to take place and happen.
MARS in LEO!
Things are getting hotter, movement happens when Mars is in another fire sign.
Mars prefers the Leo energy and it’s time to shine, go forward, be creative, confidant and yes! get looked at, go after what you want! You have the urge to create.
Leo ruled by the Sun, go after your goals, focus on your desires, this is a very outward expression of you now, connect with your heart and true passion of who YOU are. Don’t be afraid, remember this is the warrior in a fiery, passionate sign forging ahead. Mars in Leo, heats you up….. enjoy the attention, put yourself center stage.
Just do it from a humble, joyful heart, the other side of this is, you may flip to the arrogance or ego side. watch out for that. And if you’re not getting the attention you want, try other avenues, see what needs to change and make that happen.
Things can pick up, move along, and forge ahead, Mars is the action planet.

It’s a pretty Aries filled chart for this new moon. Venus is Rx, Mercury connects with Uranus. Being in Aries, it’s about you, the self, what you like and don’t like, what you want and don’t want. It’s also about renewing what you are doing, finding the things that you are only passionate about and cut the rest away or out. Venus Rx is influencing you all to take a another look at Love, life, money, relationship (with self and other, but mainly yourself).
Mercury and Uranus brings in the messages or many messages ideas, information for you to look at and work with. Boom, it may come as a surprise with Uranus in the mix up, or it might just light up your fire again and ignite that spark within you, for you to be more yourself.
Time to start a fresh with the same projects or goals maybe, but just make sure that you are doing it for you.
It’s time now to nurture your spirit.
