It was the day before the New Moon. Grandfather Sun and Sister Moon would meet in the zodiac sign of Leo, the compassionate heart, to set the stage for this Moon cycle. They called a meeting of the Council of Twelve so all the planets knew what roles they would play. The world of the Two Leggeds was still in transition and needed encouragement to walk through the doorway to love and harmony for all. The Earth Mother was tired and needed all of her human kingdom to wake up and CHANGE.
This Leo New Moon has wonderful gifts to offer us but also challenges. Let start with the gifts. We have a Grand Fire Trine (creative inspiration and Pyramid Power). Mars (acting on inspired new beginnings) and Eris Rx (purposeful action) are travelling together at 24 degrees Aries (creative vision). They are Trine (removal of obstacles) the Sun/Moon at 26 degrees Leo and Mercury at 28 degrees Leo (being centered in your compassionate heart and expressing loving kindness in all your communications). Leo asks us to be committed to our ability to be guided by our convictions, inner strength, and find the courage to be our true self. They are Trine (easy connection) to the South Node at 27 degrees Sagittarius (listening to the wisdom of our past experiences) and The Galactic Center at 27 degrees Sagittarius (the portal to Great Mystery’s Guidance). They are asking us to remember “We are spiritual beings having a human experience” and to reconnect with our Authentic Loving Self.
Now here comes one of the challenges. Eris Rx (goddess of conflict and discord) and Mars (god of anger and aggression) in Aries (impulsive and headstrong actions) are in a Cardinal Grand Cross (breaking out of whatever box you are stuck in). They are opposite Juno at 20 degrees Libra (relationship conflict and losing self in the other). This opposition (disharmony) is square (motivation for change) Hygeia at 22 degrees Cancer (emotional imbalance) and Jupiter Rx at 18 degrees Capricorn (judgement and prejudice) Pluto Rx at 22 degrees Capricorn (control and manipulation) and Saturn Rx at 26 degrees Capricorn (limitation, restriction, society’s rules). Since Aug 04 Mars and Eris have been in that square configuration with the Capricorn cluster. There have been lots of angry outburst everywhere. Most often anger is a mask to cover wounds of rejection, betrayal, and abandonment. Mars in Aries emphasises that big time. Mars will move retrograde on Sept 09 and repeat the squares to the Capricorn planets in Oct and then again in Dec. Use the wonderful Grand Trine of Mars to this New Moon in Leo and South Node/Galactic Center in Sagittarius to creatively manifest your Spiritual Vision with love for all.
There is another Grand Trine blessing us. This time in Air (thoughts, perceptions, sharing ideas). The North Node is at 27 degrees Gemini guided by Mercury at 28 degrees Leo (healing polarity by being heart centered and choosing to unite in love). North Node (new directions) is Trine (ease and flow) Juno at 20 degrees Libra (choosing harmony in relationship) and Juno is Trine the Earth at 26 degrees Aquarius (cosmic consciousness and Universal Love). Mars in Aries (inspired action) is Sextile (easy opportunities for new beginnings) the North Node and Earth. Mars links us to the Grand Fire Trine but also the Cardinal Grand Cross. So there is a way out of the box the Grand Cross creates bur it requires us to be empowered to break free. And here comes the next challenge. It is illusive but very powerful.
There is a planetary picture called a YOD (think of the letter V). It is known as The Finger of God also The Finger of Fate. In this New Moon cycle it is a strong influence. The North Node in Gemini (choosing to release separation and unite in Love) is Sextile (new opportunities for ease and to flow with life) the Sun/Moon/Mercury in Leo (the compassionate heart and loving kindness). BUT they are both in an inconjunct aspect with Saturn Rx at 26 degrees Capricorn creating the YOD. Saturn offers us the opportunity to embrace personal responsibility and become empowered as we walk our Soul Purpose Path. The inconjunct asks us to release old patterns that keep us stuck in woundedness. The release point for the YOD is 27 degrees Cancer (mastery through change and following our spiritual destiny path). The sign of Cancer is the Mystical Path and honours the Sacredness of all. On Aug 24 Mars at 26 degrees Aries (inspired action) will Square (motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things) Saturn Rx at 26 degrees Capricorn (releasing what holds you back). Just remember this activation is repeated in Oct when Mars is retrograde so it may be helpful to journal your current experience so you have a reference to know what you still need to release. Remember life is not about the destination it is about the journey.
In the Northern Hemisphere our Animal Totem guide for the New Moon/Mercury in Leo is Salmon, determination and courage to create the new. For the Earth it is Otter, joy and lightness of being. (They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere). For all us the Clan Mother who guides this New Moon cycle is She Who Heals. She is the intuitive healer and keeper of the Healing Arts. She teaches us to support others with love and compassion (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams).
This Moon Cycle activates the Tarot Constellation of Strength, courage and self-esteem. Courage to be your true self and strengthening your connection to the guidance from Creator and Great Mystery. Leo/Aquarius are 5th Ray planets. It is the Ray of knowledge and healing with Archangels Raphael, the shinning one who heals, and Mary, Unconditional Love and Acceptance. The Leo New Moon is also 1st Ray of Divine Will and Power with Archangels Michael, protector and spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust and belief in self.
One last piece of the planetary tapestry to share for this New Moon cycle. Venus at 10 degrees Cancer (where do I belong) is the Soul Centered ruler (Esoteric Astrology) of the Gemini North Node. She is squared by Chiron Rx at 09 degrees Aries (motivation to heal wounds of rejection, betrayal, and abandonment). But Venus is also Sextile (ease and flow) Uranus Rx at 10 degrees Taurus, looking deeply within and finding your Sacred Center. That is where you belong.
