Creative people rejoice! This new moon is brilliant for creative writers or thinkers. Your ideas shine!  Think and come up with something special.

Further, Mars in Aries will trine the new moon. This will inflame your creativity, It’s a great time to push all things Leo-related. In the midst of all the despair, angst and anxiety, there is fun to be had!

Also, Venus and Uranus will form an exact sextile under the new moon. The only hard aspect out there is Mars squaring the stellium in Capricorn. By now, that is the “devil you know”. This is a day you can look away and have some fun.

  1. Wow – I can’t wait for this. The new moon will be perfectly in tune with my husband’s and my grand trine in Fire. Rawr! It falls in my 2nd house, and his 5th house. On his Mars/Venus conjunction, in easy aspect to his Neptune, and my Venus, Uranus, and Mars. I’ve been pretty down in the dumps lately, and putting in a lot of work to push through a major creative block, and generally pull myself up by my bootstraps…. so this is something to look forward to. Hopefully I can get some release! We might just have to finger paint together!

  2. “Something to look forward to!” ….. Excited!!

    Sun 26 Leo
    Moon 26 Leo
    Saturn 26 Capricorn
    Nodes 26 Gemini

    And I’m loving Venus sextile Taurus at exact 10 degrees.

  3. Yay! 8th House Leo New Moon, conjuncts my Natal Mars. Deep creativity and my husband’ll experience the New Moon in his 12th (help from the gods!) That sounds like a winning combo and could help us conjure up a great new next place to be. Guardians and imagination. xo

    • So while it conjuncts my Pluto MH, will be squaring natal Saturn. Do I still have to do serious hard work or am I off the hook? I suppose it’s the bummer (moon square saturn) about the retirement delay (MH)? Oh well, more pennies in the piggy bank. Oink oink.

      • Natal Saturn is in my first house. My usual 1/2″ hair is growing growing growing so I am now sporting pig tails. And at my age. More oink oink. So the pig tails are part of my new 1st house presentation? Seems kinduv moot though, doesn’t it?

        • Right there with you notch. Long hair pigtails on my 63 yo head may not be the best new look for a CAP Rising at 23degrees. 🤣😩🤨
          Yep, the Cap stellium sitting right on my ascendant For the foreseeable future. Quite a ride. Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow. At this point, why not?! 🙃

  4. Will be on my 26° n Sun (like Osiris Wife!!!) in 11th H.
    How can I bring my wishes, hopes and dreams to life?
    I wish I knew. Right now I feel I’m giving up.
    My n Mars is currently being opposed by Mars and squared by Jupiter – like, I’m stuck!!!!!
    Well, I can still dream, sorta. (sorta…)

  5. New moon in my 12th House. Moon and sun conjunct my natal Pluto @26 leo and mercury conjuct my natal Mars@ 28 leo. Venus /Uranus sextile conjuct my natal moon@10 Virgo. Saturn trines my natal Pluto @26.Mars conjuct my natal Pluto. What should I expect?

  6. I treasure your take on astrological aspects. What makes you unique is that you expound upon BOTH the good and the bad. The “devil you know” is the best way to be prepared for possible upheavals, especially if a person knows how to read their astrological chart data. “Forewarned is Forearmed”.. so thanks for ALL your posts.
