New Moon :: July 31, 2019 :: 11:12 pm EDT :: 8 degrees Leo

If you have been feeling busy or overwhelmed or as if you can’t catch up, this post is for you. 

The Leo New Moon today is your antidote. 

Turn your back on the rat race and imagine yourself as the shining sun.

The magnificent center of attention.

You have fire in you. This New Moon is helping you find it. When you are lit up you are energized, playful and creative. 

The symbol for this New Moon is a child’s tea party. 

You take your seat as the host with a heart of gold. Pour imaginary tea and munch crumpets made of air. Change seats and become the guest, laughing vivaciously at your own good jokes.

This New Moon in Leo sets the stage for a party. Your role is to live it. Play pretend. Be the star that you are. 

The struggle right now is overwhelm. No matter how hard we push, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time or energy. How can we get caught up?

The New Moon in Leo on Wednesday July 31, 2019 has a solution to our time and energy problem. We get overwhelmed when we live too much in the future or the past. This New Moon says, “Be present.” 

Throw yourself a tea party and live it up. When you are playful and present in the moment, overwhelm is forgotten. The past and the future don’t matter. The present is really all you have.

A four-year old who plays pretend is centered right there in the moment. As we get older, it’s hard to find ways to be playful.  And what good could having fun or being playful really do? Isn’t that irresponsible? Not practical? Who has time for that? 

Responsibilities will always be there waiting. Leo is a fixed fire sign. Fire is the life force, the spirit. Fire needs to take action— consuming and creating energy. Dancing at every moment. If you get too caught up in the future or the past, or too distracted, you’ll lose the momentum of the present moment. You can’t burn brightly.

So that is why you must play. You must let the fire shine through. 

Embrace the Leo New Moon by:

Playing a game
Getting out of your comfort zone
Moving your body
Making something
Getting positive attention / recognition
Connecting with other people
Making a decision
Taking action
Using your imagination
Doing something that feels fun

Illuminate your moment and let your true heart shine through.
