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!
