On July 29, 2022, at 1:55 am, A NEW MOON happens on 5°38′ of LEO
A New Moon sends this month off, and once more, we find ourselves under a star-filled, moonless night. New Moon periods are windows of time where we may auspiciously set intentions, like planting seeds on fertile soil. Symbolically, we anchor our intentions to the lunar light, allowing these intentions to grow alongside the waxing of the Moon. This month’s NEW MOON happens in royal sign of LEO, representing the king, the stage, and the performer.
This New MOON carries with it a sprinkle of confidence and optimism, as it connects harmoniously with JUPITER, the planet of luck, abundance and expansion. With Leo ruling the heart, expressions of affection are heightened now, and creativity abounds! This is also a great time to plan and plant the seeds of whatever it is that you would like to accomplish in terms of your creativity and authentic self expression. Leo is a sign associated with bravery, so this energy helps give you courage to see through your plans, no matter how difficult or how improbable. This positivity is empowering, so take advantage of this!
With that being said, here are a few things to take note of. The much-needed ego boost given by this new Moon is tested immediately, as it is also very close to an afflicted MERCURY, currectly receiving harsh, tense energy from a very rare triple conjunction between the North Node (moving out of your comfort zone), URANUS (awakenings, unexpected events, surprises) and MARS (anger, aggression).
For the next couple of weeks, our cosmic weather is volatile, with rare planetary alignments that may push us to our limits. Change may feel like it’s being forced on us, almost aggressively, and we may feel like we are called to defend our ground. It’s very important to fortify yourself with as much optimism and conviction during this lunation, so that you may confidently ride the approaching cosmic storms with the toughness, solidity, and the magestic, glorious dignity of the king of the jungle!
