Sun, Mars & New Moon in Leo ♌

“Be the flame, not the moth.”
― Giacomo Casanova

An energizing New Moon occurs on July 23rd at 4:33 am EDT, when the Sun and Moon unite in the realm of the Sun King. This fierce AF lunation is for growing our personal power. Leo inspires playing, loving, and creating – its influence encourages us show off who we are to the max.

This New Moon’s conjunction with warrior Mars helps us to ignite that inner flame that sometimes gets dimmed by life’s daily grind. As this fortunate new cycle unfolds, we will feel emotionally stronger (after the inner turmoil Cancer season tends to stir up) and more determined to committing to our goals. But, with this much fire in the heavens, we must find healthy outlets to channel these energies before getting impatient, impulsive or aggressive.

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Does your birthday fall between July 23rd-28th? Do you have a natal planet or point in Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at 1 degree, plus or minus four degrees? If so, this is a very powerful time! You have two New Moons in a row, and one of them happens to be the August 21st Solar Eclipse!

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” Bill Keane

Use this brilliant Leo New Moon to set intentions that re-energize your inner muse. What are you passionate about besides Game of Thrones? (✿◠‿◠)

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small.

May all your wishes come true! xx

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo; Sept. 1, 2016 ♍

By Annie Heese

“A partial Solar Eclipse occurs on September 1st at 5:04 AM EDT. This eclipse in the sign of Virgo is about new beginnings regarding work, attention to details, fitness, health regimes, and daily routines. Its effects can be felt up to six months after the actual date of the eclipse.

This is a tougher eclipse – the Sun and Moon oppose Neptune and square Mars and Saturn. We may be wrestling with expectations and dealing with reality checks now, which can clear the path for new beginnings. 

Some feelings of disillusionment can come now as our dreams and ideals might be put to the test. Ideally, we move towards a realignment of material goals and spiritual ideals as we assess what is truly meaningful to us.

This eclipse also occurs near the North Node in Virgo. Eclipses close to the North Node tend to “feel” easier than those closer to the South Node, as there is a sense of moving forward instead of concentration on having to let go of something.

This is the second to last eclipse in a series falling along the Virgo-Pisces axis that began with the Solar Eclipse in Pisces in March 2015, and it is the final Solar Eclipse in Virgo in this series. There will be a Solar Eclipse in Pisces in February 2017.

New Moon Solar Eclipse; September 13th, 2015 @ 2:42 AM ET❂☌♍

A Solar Eclipse will occur early Sunday morning, as our most intimate cosmic bodies – Sun, Moon and Earth – are in sync in the sign of Virgo. In many belief systems, a Solar Eclipse is considered a sort of magical bonus round; that any workings we do during this period will have a lot of extra energy behind them.

Eclipses are said to be most powerful when they conjunct the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or Midheaven of a birth chart. This phase of the Moon occurs at 20 degrees and 10 minutes of Virgo.

“Mercury, the ruler for Virgo, is in Libra and is in perfect loving harmony with Venus in Leo on Sunday, Sept.13. Mercury and Venus also blend like English tea and honey to warm your belly and sweeten the taste of life. May it be a victory sip, take it all in!” -Kristin Fontana
