New Moon in Leo today, August 8, 2021 at 8:50am CST. This New Moon triggers the Saturn-Uranus square that has been with us all year. We are being tested, brought to the limits, the boundaries, and Uranus lights up the sky and we can see something new over the block, the wall, and we have a breakthrough, an insight, an aha, take a quantum leap into a new reality where we are no longer held back by that belief, fear, limitation, conditioning. Such is the power of this square when used in service to your evolution.
With the Moon and Sun conjunct at 16° Leo 14’, with Mercury in a separating conjunction in Leo, there is a lot of energy in Leo: personal self-expression, being the king or queen of our reality, creativity, courage, and vitality. If we are utilizing this energy, we should feel like roaring right now. This Leo energy is square to Uranus in Taurus and opposite Saturn in Aquarius, triggering that square that has been humming in the background all year. We may feel torn between the old and the new, the way things used to be and the way things could be. But if we truly drop into our hearts (Leo), we will hear the song inside of us that longs to be sung and we will bless the past for the lessons it has taught us but move forward bravely and boldly into the future because that is where creativity lies. Creativity means doing something in a unique way, expressing uniquely, living uniquely. You are the only one who can be and do you, so what are you waiting for?
Mars in Virgo is in a t-square with the Nodes of the Moon. This t-square with the Nodes is testing our beliefs, and ultimately our beliefs determine our actions. North Node in Gemini in its highest expression is openness, curiosity, and Beginner’s Mind. In its lower expression, Gemini is scattered, frivolous, and unfocused. South Node in Sagittarius is inviting is to examine our beliefs, stories, philosophies, the visions that guide our lives and ask ourselves if they are really serving our growth and expansion. In its highest expression, Sagittarius is the visionary seeker guided by principles, wisdom, and truth but always searching for more. In its lowest expression, Sagittarius is the bombastic, dogmatic know-it-all who believes they have all of the answers and will defend their beliefs to the end, all the while not realizing the limited perceptual box that have put themselves into.
Venus in Virgo is approaching its opposition with Neptune in Pisces, inviting us to align our values and worth with Spirit, the life force that flows through all things and ultimately unites all of us and life. With a newfound sacred sense of purpose we can move forward in our lives with reverence and sacred devotion.
