New Moon in Leo

Tomorrow’s New Moon at 26 Leo offers a chance to reset to a more empowered form of leadership.

I’ve been busy doing sessions, working on a commissioned portal painting, gardening and taking in another wonderful day of sun, shade, sand and waves at Lake Michigan, so I’ll direct you to two insightful posts:

The first is from Astrobutterfly: New Moon in Leo — Leadership is Who You Are.

The second is an analysis of the USA natal chart, by Ann Kreilkamp: US Internal Violence is a Symptom of Energy Run Amuck.

Ann is quite open about her thoughts on geopolitics, Shadow Work, and the upcoming first Pluto Return for the US. Wherever you fall on the polarized political spectrum, this Pluto Return — the first time in 248 years — will affect you. Even now, before it gets more exact in 2023, we’re feeling the destructive force of Pluto in Capricorn — intensified by Saturn and Jupiter there, as well. All of that now squares Mars in Aries, to varying degrees of exactness, creating friction between individual and authority, as well as ego (Mars) and the Force of Nature (Pluto).  Jupiter expands what it touches, and hopefully brings some big benefits, too, but this Capricorn cluster continues to pummel the USA natal chart’s Cancer locations.

Paying attention to Collective astro weather reports helps us take advantage of the energies instead of being taking off guard by them. Rain might ruin a picnic — or you can plan for a pavilion, or delight in not needing to water the garden. Everything has value.

Everything.

I often write of the uncanny ways my own natal chart matches up to the key astro alignments we’ve been going through, and how this will continue for me with eerie precision through at least 2025. I was surprised/not surprised to find some major connections between the USA natal chart and my own natal, as well as progressed charts. One of the biggest ones is that my natal Chiron and the USA’s natal Chiron are both at 19-20 Aries.

This means that the insanely long Pluto square Chiron transit I’ve had since February 2016 right before my dad went on hospice, has also been happening to the US itself. It has slightly moved off a direct hit, but I’ve described this transit as both brutal and incredibly healing. It has required a complete unearthing of all childhood wounds, Shadow Work, and the ways in which my weaknesses have become my strengths. The ways in which I am very much a Wounded Healer. On the USA front, so many horrible revelations have come forth, with more on the way … and we, as a country, have an opportunity for tremendous healing.

In addition to the Chiron connection, the US Mars conjuncts my natal Saturn, and my progressed Sun is at 16 Cancer, while the US natal Sun is 13 Cancer. The US Jupiter is on my natal Vesta — a healer and keeper of the sacred flame. My Isis and Asbolus (both seers) are within 2 degrees of the USA’s 6 Leo North Node. Lots and lots of connections — way more than I’m sharing here. The upcoming, monumental Pluto Return at 27 Capricorn conjuncts my natal vertex at 28 Capricorn, which, in turn, exactly trines my 28 Taurus Midheaven.

I’ve intensely felt Saturn crossing that 27-28 Capricorn point, and it reminds me of a dream I had last October. I’ve shared it before in one of the Precognitive Blues posts. It involved special mandala floors that would ensure everyone gets where they need to go “in the event of an earthquake.” You can think of Pluto as the earthquake, with Saturn going ahead and forging these special mandala floors. Even as so many old structures crumble, upgrades and renovation are in the works. There is much to be grateful for amidst the chaos and confusion — for those with eyes to see.

As intense as things can sometimes feel, blessings abound. Make sure to care for your inner child, your body and emotions. You will lead from a stronger, more empowered place if you tend to the scared, grieving or lonely spots. From vulnerability comes great strength.

Blessed Be … and be the blessing.

Leo New Moon

Another guest blog post from the lovely Electra Jung of http://signsfromabove.net. She emphasizes opening the heart wide, and boy do I feel it! Intense, magical times right now. I’m not sure I’ve ever felt such polarities on this planet –so much high vibe love and light, and so much scrambling and desperation from the fear mongerers and gangster-banksters. What an incredible time to be alive! Here’s Electra’s Leo New Moon message:

Leo New Moon

Love is… a state of being

“Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”– Robert A. Johnson

“Leo is the power of love and the lion-hearted courage to remain open hearted and mindful of your personal involvements and the decisions you make along the way…every day. Watch yourself…observe your own stubborn behavior…as your consciousness continues to shift… be in this moment of awareness… choose to shift with love.” –Electra Jung

The spiritual path doesn’t require us to get anything. It’s a process of opening to new dimensions of who we already are. It’s a process of awakening to our own truth. It’s a process of allowing ourselves to be authentic.

“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

This New Moon in Leo provides the heat and passion toward new romances on impulse…by now your life’s experiences have brought you confidence through self-awareness. The events since the beginning of the year have brought crises in relationships, family circumstances and challenges in health issues which have demanded new levels of attention and personal adjustment.

Each and every opportunity to express love is the process of evolution and heart awakening. Consider the absolute Grace of our connected living on this planet and now shifting into deeper heart-centered thought, feeling and activity with every divine opportunity which arrives daily. Risk everything for love… choose love now…and welcome the risk of loss and heartache which is more common as we learn to continually open our heart chakra to future possibilities.

Perhaps there are those you have convinced you haven’t a care in the world… that you are perfectly self-reliant…that you are happy alone and secure in your daily routine. This facade supports the on-going divine-discontent by creating a wall of resistance between you and the ones you love…between you and yourself and between you and your god-self.

“People ask what must they become to be loving. The answer is ‘nothing.’ It is a process of letting go of what you thought you had become and allowing your true nature to float to the surface naturally.”
— Stephen Levine

The Leo New Moon is governed by a dynamic solar energy…the Sun itself is powerful in its own sign and can express itself easily. The Sun is the symbol of spirit the life force of the universe. Leo is the sign that rules the spine and the heart in the body which represents Will and Love. These are the motivating powers of desire and the will to be. Isabel Hickey

In order to feel good about yourself, confident and re- vitalized, your first priority is attending to the nutritional and chi energy of your amazing physical/electrical vehicle which houses your soul for its earthly experiences. The area of weakness is the heart due to disappointment in love, heart-ache, poor diet through lack of self-respect. Commit yourself to an outside regimen of solar healing. Walk in nature and bathe in the rainbow vibration of the full spectrum light of the Sun.

Align yourself with spiritual direction and begin to consciously release blocks in your center. Your heart chakra hardens through fear, resentment and grief. Breathe deeply and with focus allow your heart to open and remain so through daily attention to this most important process. The thymus gland is associated with the heart chakra.

The Thymus Gland is important because of its relationship to our will to live…an expression of the Leo empowerment and love. This is an important gland to keep opened and balanced. One method is to tap on your thymus several times which activates it, this is known as the thymus thump. As you keep your thymus opened and balanced you may find improvements in these areas of your life.

Your 3rd dimensional body has been changing and evolving through each continuing planetary line-up…pressuring you to feel the relentless habits you develop to remain lonely, unfulfilled and discouraged…all masked of course with false bravado expressed loudly without real knowledge or meaning…but it sounds good even if confused and scattered.

Everything that requires self-expression is supported by this dynamic lunation. Every event that allows for personal ego satisfaction through impulsive involvement brings courage and confidence…you did it. You said it…you danced the dance of social interaction and accepted the lesson of ego-evolution. Leo energy is the channel for power…never the power itself.

Leo energy supports artistic productions on stage, film and group leadership. Today’s energy can give you the extra concentration to go along with getting a creative project completed or at least the outline for connection and negotiating with others of your skill and motivation. Make the most of this New Moon by either finishing creative project from before or tackling a new production in the performing arts.

Mars in the late degrees of Gemini gives great desire for information, news and gossip. With so much energy directed towards constant communication and keeping focused on one thing is challenging. Intellectual stimulation is more important than the commitment to any one activity. This can lead to overwhelm and burn-out…remember to love yourself, respect the needs of your body and allow for rest and rejuvenation daily.
