It was late evening as Snowy Owl and Shooting Star climbed the path to the Star Temple. Grandfather Sun had already set and the night sky was a deep indigo. There was no moonlight as this was New Moon time but the sisters knew the path so well they travelled it easily. As they approached the Sacred Space a glowing light shimmered in the center of the Star Temple. They each wondered what that light could be.
Upon entering they saw a great Goddess standing in the center. She had flowing auburn hair and her gown was fiery red. From her heart center a glowing golden light shone and surrounded her whole being. Beside her were a majestic Lion and Lioness standing still but also bathed in the light. The Goddess spoke. “I am Sophia, guardian of Heart Knowing and Inner Wisdom. My companions are guardians of courage, inner strength, and protection. When you are uncertain of your next step on your spiritual path call on us and we will show you that when you listen to your Heart Knowing the new doorway will open for you to walk through. The light you see radiating from me is also deep within your being. This Moon cycle is to strengthen that Golden Light and shine it out into your world so others will awaken to their Heart Knowing and be guided by their inner wisdom. You are Wayshowers on the path of Loving Kindness.”
When Sophia had shared her message Sister Moon spoke “As Sophia said this Moon Cycle is about being centered in your Heart Knowing. There will be challenges that will make you question what is true and what is not true. If you try to find the answers only through your thinking mind it will lead to confusion. Become centered in your Heart Knowing and its wisdom will guide you to your truth. Know any challenges you experience will be to strengthen your inner being and find the courage to be your true self.”
Snowy Owl and Shooting Star thanked Sophia and Sister Moon for their messages. The sisters looked forward to the road ahead even if some parts of it may be bumpy. They knew support on the journey would be there when they asked.
This Leo New Moon and cycle feels very special, like a turning point. And it is for a number of reasons. It is a Super Moon when Luna is closer to earth. The next Super New Moons are Aug 30 and Sept 28. The Moon’s pull on the tides is stronger than usual and human emotions are equally pulled. Perhaps that is why we have so many tragic occurrences happening at this timing. Individuals who have “gone off the rails” with destruction as their motivation. We all need to be centered in our Heart Knowing NOW. Interesting that Sophia, Goddess of heart wisdom, showed up in our story.
If you are experiencing this New Moon on July 31 it is the second New Moon of July and is the Blue/Black Moon of Transformation. If for you it is Aug 01 then Aug 30 is your Blue/Black New Moon of transformation. But we have often said time is an illusion. Spirit tells me we are all in the time of transformation. This is the beginning of healing the heart so Love can transform our human world. The next two Super New Moons will continue to offer us Healing into Wholeness (Virgo Moon Aug 30) and harmony and balance (Libra Moon Sept 28).
Our current New Moon is at 08 degrees Leo (heart wisdom) travelling with Venus at 04 degrees Leo (heart love) and they are trine (removable of obstacles) Chiron Rx at 05 degrees Aries (healing the wounded self) and Ceres at 01 degree Sagittarius (healing separation from spirit). Jupiter Rx at 14 degrees Sagittarius (expansion of our spiritual vision) is also part of this Grand Fire Trine (inspired action). But we did say this is a turning point. Jupiter is still retrograde until Aug 11 and at this New Moon the planet Mercury is beginning his forward motion (11.58 pm EDT). He does not clear his retrograde shadow until Aug 15 so we are still in revision and realignment time. Also Mercury is asking us to continue the healing of our wounded child (his journey in Cancer until Aug 11) so when he enters Leo again Aug 11 our Magical Child can emerge. Notice that is also the day Jupiter moves direct. And that is also the day Uranus turns retrograde (inner breakthrough to freedom). Pay attention to what comes up for you at this Leo New Moon as it is significant on your journey to Heart Knowing.
Our story told us about challenges ahead. At this New Moon the planet Uranus at 06 degrees Taurus is in a T Square (feeling backed into a corner) with the Sun/Moon (inner balance) and the Earth which is at 08 degrees Aquarius (new vision for our world). Uranus in Taurus asks us to break free from what is no longer of value and breakthrough to what is of true value and importance. Add to this Mars (action) and Juno (relationship) are at 19 degrees Leo (the ego vs. the heart) and are square (finding new ways of doing things) Vesta at 18 degrees Taurus (valuing the self) and they are inconjunct (letting go what is not working) Neptune at 18 degrees Pisces (deception and illusion). But the Universe always gives us support. Vesta and Neptune are sextile each other opening the doorway into illumination when we are guided by our Heart Knowing and inner wisdom.
We also have a Cardinal Grand Cross (breaking out of whatever box you are in) at this Leo New Moon. Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) is at 23 degrees Cancer (mastering the emotions) standing still as he gets ready to move forward. He is opposed by Pluto Rx at 21 degrees Capricorn (what needs to be transformed and released). They are square (motivation for change) the dwarf planet Eris Rx at 24 degrees Aries (ego conflict and discord) which is opposite Pallas Athene at 21 degrees Libra (wise warrior). Because Pluto is involved we may see this play out on the world stage. Whatever happens remember you are a journey to Heart Knowing and being Wayshower of Loves Power. Be the peaceful warrior.
Our Animal Totem guide for the Leo New Moon is Salmon, determination and perseverance to create the new. For the Earth in Aquarius our guide is Otter, companionship and joyful sharing. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. The Clan Mother who guides us is She Who Heals, she teaches us to serve the truth with an open heart.
