Leo New Moon - Confidence

"Idealism detached from action is just a dream. But idealism allied with pragmatism, with rolling up your sleeves and making the world bend a bit, is very exciting. It's very real. It's very strong."

— Bono

Creative, intellectual energy is stirring all week and given a tremendous boost of confidence by Tuesday's Leo New Moon (7:41 PM PDT 26° Leo). The Fire trine to Mars in Aries imbues active independence to the will-power driven Leo Sun and Moon. However, the quincunx to Saturn demands that we make accommodations for rules, regulations, and restrictions or face significant consequences. The forming Mars-Saturn square adds tremendous, independent drive but also a cautious concern — a stop-start, obsessive-compulsive challenge to be sure. (The first of three Mars-Saturn squares will culminate next week.) Venus has settled comfortably into Cancer, which soothes some of the potential frustration. Nonetheless, the early part of the week may see some foolishly cocky and prideful displays, along with an overpowering concern over how we appear to others. Once Mercury arrives in Virgo on Wednesday, most of the ego-driven disruptions dissipate. We can more easily recognize the need for a thorough, meticulous inventory of exactly where we stand. From such an inventory, we can begin to make plans and adopt strategies that can move us forward. Pragmatism replaces pride. Even so, the independent energy may continue to disrupt cooperation if we find ourselves feeling too hemmed in by the restricting demands of Saturn. By the end of the week, the Sun leaves the brilliance of Leo for the pragmatism of Virgo. The creative, intellectual energy remains, however, supported by the forming trine of Venus to Neptune. Our confidence stabilizes as we begin to recognize a practical path forward. Pragmatism replaces pride.

The extra creative energy that we feel on Sunday needs to be channeled sensitively in order to avoid being wasted. Too tight of a controlling grip may leave us flailing or lethargic. Mercury conjuncts the Sun in a Superior Conjunction on Monday, offering a shower of promising gifts. However, pride and excess will pull us up short. Tuesday's New Moon provides a tremendous boost of confidence, but too much pride or arrogance will continue to be our downfall if we aren't self-disciplined enough to recognize the element of Grace that is carrying us forward. Mercury arrives in Virgo on Wednesday, encouraging us to 'roll up our sleeves' and take stock of exactly where we are. The Moon's opposition to Neptune on Thursday provides creative bursts of insight that are well grounded. Our imagination is stirred. Spontaneous and lively interactions feed our confidence on Friday. Appreciation is easier and prideful boasts seem less necessary. The Sun arrives in Virgo on Saturday, further stabilizing our confidence and instilling an extra dose of pragmatism. Steady effort is encouraged by steady progress.
