Leo New Moon - Finding An Audience

"All my big mistakes are when I try to second-guess or please an audience. My work is always stronger when I get very selfish about it."

— David Bowie

This week begins with a Leo New Moon (6:09 AM PDT 16° Leo) that creates a fascinating atmosphere which suggests something like a performer's relationship to an audience. A performer may want to garner the approval of their audience but the importance of the creative process demands that the performer honor the integrity of that process. So we don't want to simply gain approval this week. We want our 'audience' to appreciate the value of what we have to show from our creative effort. We will find ourselves at a loss — like a performer without an audience — if we don't find an appreciative response from somewhere this week. As we move through the week, we find ourselves engaged in some significant negotiations trying to find that sweet spot between personal integrity and approval from a 'wider audience'. Ultimately, this is a negotiation between idealism and practicality. Initially, things may seem to fall into place spontaneously. We find ways to merge practical elements of cooperation with individual vision and creativity. However, responsibility may begin to break down by mid-week and there is the potential for some risk-taking that seeks to push our independence too far. The Moon reaches Scorpio by the end of the week — the first quarter of the lunar cycle. The resulting long arc fixed sign cross creates some potent challenges to our ego and self-confidence levels. Intuition and intellect won't provide the support that we are hoping for. There will be more elements and perspectives to be integrated before we find something like a stable approach to move forward. The stress we feel at the end of the week may seem quite threatening but will soon pass. The challenge to our ego and self-confidence will help us forge a more robust, meaningful 'performance' that serves to maintain our individual integrity while also making important connections to a wider audience.

Sunday's Leo New Moon put us stage in some way. We are ready to show off our creative individuality but there is a strong demand for practicality and responsibility. We want approval but don't want to give up our integrity to get it. Monday's Mercury-Pluto quincunx creates a powerful connection to the input from others, creating a 'negotiation imperative'. Personality clashes are possible and our egos are at stake. Our perspective broadens significantly on Tuesday. We see a smooth flow of ideas and things seem to fall into place spontaneously. Venus arrives in Virgo on Wednesday, offering new ways of integrating practicality and creative vision. Persistence and consistency of purpose pay off. Thursday offers a watershed of progress. There is considerable imagination and resourcefulness available. We hit a bit of a wall on Friday. Intuition and intellect are but inadequate to answering the questions that surface. The long arc fixed sign square on Saturday is likely to feel like a 'slog' that threatens our self-confidence. We can take heart in knowing that 'this too, shall pass'.
