New Moon in Leo: July 23, 2017 – Effects By House

The new moon in Leo takes place early in the morning on July 23rd. The sun and moon are tightly conjunct Mars. This should fuel creativity.

Further, the stellium trines squares Uranus in at 28 degrees Aries. Expect a push for innovation. This can take many forms. A person can push themselves but they can also push their children, their students or their employees.

Leo is concerned with “play”. If I were introducing a new video game console, I’d release it under this new moon. Something begun now could really take off like a rocket (Mars Uranus).

This new moon looks like good clean fun to me but with natal Venus in Leo, I may have a bias. If you want to consider the potential negative manifestations, think in terms of an ego (Leo) fueled rage (Mars Uranus). Whatever happens; it’s likely to be dramatic, fresh and surprising.

We set intentions under the new moon.  I’d not skip this exercise this month. It’s like having a match, struck, lit and burning brightly.  What will you do with the fire?

Here are ideas for setting your intention for the new moon, based on the house where it falls.

  • New Moon in the 1st house –  Reinvent and reintroduce yourself to the world.
  • New Moon in the 2nd house – Don’t leave money lying around. Put it to use.
  • New Moon in the 3rd house –  Creative writing. Flashy car or maybe just wash and wax the one you have! Be seen on your short trips!
  • New Moon in the 4th house –  Get the family out. Get them up and doing something fun.
  • New Moon in the 5th house –  Great fun! If you’ve got it, flaunt it!  Lead children to be creative.
  • New Moon in the 6th house –  Fun challenge at work. Competing to do good works. Drive to help.
  • New Moon in the 7th house – Get out and have fun with your partner. Hunt love!
  • New Moon in the 8th house – Art therapy. Come back to life!
  • New Moon in the 9th house – Expand your audience. Push to learn/teach.
  • New Moon  the 10th house – Attention getting at work. This can be positive. Set an example of creative independence.
  • New Moon in the 11th house – Get your friends together. Fun in the sun!
  • New Moon in the 12th house – Charity drive.

Whatever you do, I would not see this fiery energy as destructive. It’s more akin to carrying the Olympic torch or embodying the Holy Spirit. I’m thinking, good and pure!

Where does the new moon fall in your chart? What’s your intention?



New Moon in Leo: July 23, 2017 – Effects By House — 33 Comments

  1. At the very beginning of 10th house.
    Can’t relly define an intention, but if it has to do with work I’m for it.
    Perhaps do something differently?
    In the concept “creative independance”, creative seems more important to me than independance, dunno why.
    Ah, intention-setting is quite a creative challenge in itself!
    I like the idea very much, great monthly incentive to be found here.

  2. This is in my 9house, opposite venus 1st degree Aquarius. How can stallium both trine and square uranus? Is it because it’s out of sign square

  3. 11th house for me…but I have like, no friends. LOL. Seriously…I have two, and they both live quite a distance from me. No one is coming to visit anytime soon, and I don’t have the money or vacation time to take off and go see them. Any other possibilities as to how else this might manifest?

  4. 2nd house, conjunct my SUN!! I have been applying for better paying jobs within my company – so fingers crossed!!

  5. Oh neat! It’s at the end of my 11H. We are going to see a musical in Boston for my mother-in-law’s late birthday present. Instead of being super stressed over my finals, I will try to be in the moment with everyone.

  6. 4 house, the day after I will go on a trip with my university friends and classmates to a country I’ve never been too. I’m really excited.

  7. My Sun is at 0Sag16. Free-flowing of expression says this New Moon. Hopefully, I’ll be going in a forward positive direction. Enlightenment is the key.

    But, I got to tell ya’, at this point, I’d take a bed-side reading lamp…

  8. For the past couple of days I’ve been thinking of how I’ve allowed “life getting in the way” to be an excuse for so long. Creatively I’ve been dead for a long time. Can’t remember the last time I picked up a guitar or wrote anything, or felt alive. Feels like something is stirring–I bought stuff to fix my keyboard stand and to freshen up the guitar. Might bring the clarinet out of mothballs, get it freshened up and donate or sell it–I’ve had it for 29 years and it feels like it’s just time.

    Would this be how the Leo new moon plays out in the 8th house, or is this more Saturn 12th house transit stuff?

  9. 9th house, trine my Sag moon. I’ve said that I don’t wanna go back to school b/c I don’t have the mental energy for it. But with what I felt and, as a result, what I initiated at the Cap Full Moon – and it was productive and important action – I’m anticipating some truths to come to light around Leo time and I may have no choice but to make a change of some kind.

  10. 12th; sextile Moon. I’m exploring energy healing again. This is a theme repeated from 5 years ago but I didn’t do much with it the last time due to internal conflicts. Since Neptune entered Pisces and opposed my Saturn, those outdated beliefs dissolved. I hope to better utilize it this time.

  11. Uranus on 28 deg Aries is conjunct my natal asteroid Hephaistos and my foot hurts. Transiting Neptune (in Pisces –> feet) slowly beginning to square my natal Saturn (Third house and Gemini –> ability to move) is probably another indicator of the same problem.

  12. Yes, as my almost 4yo Leo daughter whose SR is the 23rd likes to say: “that’s not very fun”, or “interesting”. She has an expectation of fun, that’s for sure!

  13. It looks like it’s going to fall on my natal Moon/Jupiter conjunction at 1 degree Leo in 5th house (possibly 4th house depending on the house system).
    I have no intention yet as to what to do with it. My mind is a mess at the moment.

  14. The new moon is exactly conjunct my Mars in the 4th. I imagine I’ll have a major cleaning day. And/or a complete emotional meltdown lol

  15. My Jupiter is at 3, is that too far? I’m getting ready to move days later, not like I expect a lot, to be honest 🙂

  16. Thank you, Elsa, for the heads up! How would you interpret the moon if it is about 3 degrees away from the beginning of my 7th house/DC? Would you consider the issues of both 6th and 7th? (Both will be important in the next few weeks.) Thank you. m.

  17. Oooh, busy month/year for me I think. This falls in natal H9 which is H1 by profection for this year & I will still be in that profected H1 when this occurs. Uranus & NN also da house just to make life really interesting!
