Hey now…the New Moon in Leo is here, and not a moment too soon! Any astro-newbies wanna know what New Moons are all about? Well, the New Moon occurs (monthly) when the Sun and Moon are stationed in the same sign, like what happened today: the Moon’s in Leo, and the Sun’s also in Leo. You can’t actually see a New Moon, it’s hidden, with more of itself revealed later as it ‘grows’ to fullness. I love the way it performs the same function in our lives, so you get fresh new information, especially in matters previously hidden: & that’s always exciting. So just how much Leo can we STAND, you ask? Depends upon your tolerance. I happen to Love All That is Leo: the HUGE personality, the creative spirit, the big kid sense of playfulness, the sunny, suave, yet somehow chilly demeanor (friendly yes, but in an ‘Us Royals Don’t Usually Fuqq With You Regular People’ kinda way). The big hair, and if not big hair, well…distinctive hair. Or none at all: these folks are often all or NOTHING when to comes to hair, so we’re talking either big, or bald. Whatever the case, it makes QUITE the visual impression, and easily appears wind-blown, even when there’s not one fan on in the room. Which, of course is all for effect, you understand. Think Beyonce-esque hair volume (Leo ascendant), the brown and glowing la tête of Isaac Hayes (Sun in Leo), or the definitive pixie-cut that Halle Berry (Sun in Leo) is known for. Leonine hair isn’t ever accidental-even their bedhead speaks to a cultivated, come-hither messiness. Often golden, tawny, or bottle blonde without apology: It’s a definitive statement about who they are, what they’re here to DO (create) and by the way, yes, you may watch, you should be watching: it’s what they live for. If you ain’t giving your full attention, there could be, well, consequences. Look up ‘drama’ in the Urban Dictionary.
So what’s this mean for the rest of us, who want to make the best of this 2 1/2 day double dose of The Be-Goldened Goodness, and the full month of Leo Sun? The first thing I did was get a real feel for the newness that this Moon phase ushered in: after the astro storms & retrogrades of late winter and spring, this fresh energy feels awesome. New Moons bring New Everything, and as Leo rules creativity, identity, play, the ego, passion, children & young people: we can’t lose if we pour energies into those areas. Me? Ima create as much as I can: write stuff, make stuff, make my hair bigger, and wear my suede & gold sequinned ankle boots with everything. Going to the playground and getting on the swings-I need the playtime and all the kids around invigorate me. Sit in the Sun and absorb my Vitamin D: it won’t be this easy to do 6 months from now. Polishing off & shining up my triple-A game too: with these stars right here, you gotta BRING that! Giving everything we do our very best efforts is identity affirming, and who couldn’t use more of that? Know what else? Everyone’s taking notice of everyone’s visual presentation, so we may as well have fun and be playful with it. Presence is The Everything right now: strut your stuff. Give sincere compliments when you like what see, too, it spreads the brightness around. A great perk with this year’s New Leo Moon is that Mars stationed in Scorpio a few hours ago as well: MORE passion! Mo’ intensity! I’m not doing anything or anyone I’m not absolutely, passionately, gaga about. Yeah, that’s the usual mantra, but under Mars in Scorpio’s influence, my knees must really buckle, honey. If I look at the menu, and my mouth ain’t watering: neaux, and NEXT. That includes what I’ll have for dinner to buying a new chair to…you get what I mean. It’s a lovely time to release whatever you’re ‘Meh’ about, open your heart wide, and to begin magnetizing whatever makes you go “Rrrrowrrr!” and makes your soul just SING. Big sunny smiles & Happy Summer!
