 Leo and the Inner Child

New Moon in Leo – the Divine Child Comes Forth

by Lynn Hayes

The last couple of weeks have been marked with intensity and power, with the Grand Sextile/Star of David formation and the powerful opposition from Jupiter to Pluto.

… The Leonine energy flares brightly at the August 6 Leo New Moon (2:51 p.m. PDT). Provocative Uranus in experimental Aries trines the Sun and Moon, lighting a spark that urges us off the couch toward more creativity and fun. Now the planets are supporting positive, progressive change. Perhaps the recent Grand Water Trine fired your imagination or loosened the emotional underpinnings that have kept you stuck. Now you can take the next step, however small, toward expressing your true self.

Here’s the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 15 Leo: “A pageant, with its spectacular floats, moves along a street crowded with cheering people.” We’re celebrating a spark of newness in some area of our lives. That place where things are stirring, perhaps after a long period of stagnation. In Leo we learn to open our hearts—to love and create.
