The new moon takes place early in the morning on August 11th. This should be a great day! Let’s talk about Leo and more specifically, the creative self.
It’s fashionable to label everything in ways that are simple. These labels tend to negative. The effects of this trend are grave. Knowledge has become more and more superficial.
I was taking to a client the other day. He has a Cancer sun. He didn’t know a lot of astrology. I found myself talking to him about defining his creative self. Leo! The Sun!
Every single one of us was born for some purpose. I’m not talking about your misery or your backache. I’m talking about how you shine. What’s your role in this lifetime? How can your creativity shine through?
You don’t have to be artist in the classic sense of that work. A secretary can radiate warmth. If I show up at your house or your office with platter of scones, you will know I am a creative person.
As you can see, the new moon is conjunct Mercury. But just as importantly, it’s square Jupiter in Scorpio.
Think (Mercury) about your creative self (Sun) and feelings (Moon). I am not talking about feelings that may have been assigned to you. How do you feel in your heart (Leo)?
Jupiter in Scorpio suggests this information (Mercury) can be discovered at this time. Turn up that which has been hidden and possibly festering and expose it to the light.
