Our motivation and willingness to be fully alive falls under Leo’s spotlight during tonight’s New Moon cycle. At 9:12 pm MDT, it joins Venus and together, the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Leo create a fiery trine to Ceres in Sagittarius and Chiron in Aries.
The Sun in Leo beams Source energy that stokes our inner flame. The Moon in Leo reflects that brilliance. Venus in Leo loves all forms of radiant beauty, especially if they have an element of performance. Ceres in Sagittarius gestates expansion. Chiron in Aries offers a healing bridge to our survival.
If we connect to this portal of light and accept the gifts of courage, beauty, love, and healing power that it offers, we can ignite the spark of creativity waiting inside each of us and enlighten our world.
As an activator of life, Sun-ruled Leo also shines the light on our inheritance. Our talents, gifts, strengths, courage, shadows, fears, values, beliefs, ideas, behaviors – literally everything we think, do, and have is tied to what came before. Evaluating whether or not what we hold and share is worthy of the stage is especially important now.
How much of what we carry belongs to a lineage whose time has passed?
Another potent trine from this New Moon connects to Jupiter at 14 degrees Sagittarius. There is a quality to the degree of 14 Sagittarius that goes beyond linear time. where the potential exists for actions taken now to affect the past and the present simultaneously. If we had the power to bend time – to transcend the boundaries of it – what would we do with that ability? Would we heal old wounds? Would we bless them for their wisdom, and in doing so, honor what came before?
The New Moon and Sun also square Uranus in Taurus, challenging us to choose our values with great care, because what we focus on brings more of the same. In the midst of rapidly changing times, we’re standing on the foundation of what came before and building what will come. If we have the courage to shape it with love, we’ll all win.
Hummingbirds dash, sing, and dart their way about pine boughs under a sky brushed with wisps of angels’ wings and a single dragonfly weave its trail of mystery around me. The joy of life’s magic can be just tiny enough to give us pause, or it can be so magnificent that it engulfs us.
Here’s to entering tonight’s portal of light
and being open to what it sparks!
With Great Love, always,
