The new moon in Leo takes place mid-morning on August 8th. The sun and moon will be stressed by Uranus in Taurus which should increase and unleash both drama and creativity.
Mars is not involved with this so I’d not look for ego-driven type stuff. It’s not about a person making a scene. Its’ more about creative innovation.
The sun and moon will conjunct Mercury. You can expect some bright ideas out this.
Saturn in Aquarius will oppose the pair but the orb is wide and Aquarius is in it’s home sign. Look for this aspect to support the fresh ideas and feelings rather than to thwart them, though you may have to push against some resistance. Fear, most likely.
Fear of change, how common is that?
It’s would be almost embarrassing to give into such a banal thing under a sky like this. Better to see a show or be a show or something along those lines. Try something new.
