August 19, 2020 represents the New Moon in Leo. New moons are times for new beginnings, fresh perspectives and turning over a new leaf. Leo is the sign of self expression, compassion, creativity and leadership. This particular new moon is in conjunction with Mercury which will turn most of the focus towards thinking and communication which is giving this a strong focus on how we express our feelings, desires and who we are.
We are in a period where we have 5 planets in retrograde, one of which is Uranus, the planet of awakening and chaos. This is a time where illusions are being shattered and we are seeing completely new perspectives in the world around us and in our own views and beliefs. In essence we are in a phase of consistent transformation and a constant rediscovering of who we are. This new moon is asking us to focus on how we are expressing ourselves to the world around us, but at the same time most of us are probably questioning who we even are anymore. The good news is this new moon is bringing in a burst of positive and optimistic energy as well as activating what fuels our passion, making it a little easier to navigate through all the chaos.
This is a great time to put some much needed focus onto YOU. Leo is all about being proud of who we are and feeling confident in showing that to the world. So who exactly are you? What makes you happy? What brings you excitement? What sparks your interests? How do you express you to the world around you? Take some time this week to put focus on the things that spark your creativity and passion. The more time and energy you put into what fuels you, the more opportunities to explore that further will be presented to you. You attract experiences to you based on how you feel about yourself and how you perceive yourself so this is a good time to take a look at the experiences and people that are in your surroundings right now. If you desire more fulfilling, passionate, or exciting experiences and people then start getting excited about yourself and show that to the world.
Mars is square Saturn during this time which will bring in a little frustration to this new moon energy. Saturn is the planet of restriction. This means we might run into feeling all of the intense exciting energy to take action, but at the same time feel limited in what we can do. We will want to express ourselves fully, but might also find that we are struggling with how we go about that. Any resistance you might face during this time is simply showing you where changes need to be made so it's important to be flexible during this time and be open to new creative ways of doing things.
This Leo energy is amazing energy for manifesting new beginnings. With Leo being the sign of compassion and love, take some time to appreciate and love yourself as well as focusing on appreciating where you are in your journey. The more you are in the energy of appreciation and love, the more you manifest positive new opportunities to your life.
