Leo New Moon

Leo New Moon - Expansion

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within."

— Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Mercury turns direct on Wednesday of this week within the same hour as the Leo New Moon (8:11 PM PDT 8° Leo), which occurs just past the point at which Mercury stationed retrograde earlier this month. The focus of this retrograde period has been on Leo's determined will power. But as Mercury has made its way back into Cancer, we have been challenged to understand more about the proper use of our will power. We have had to learn that our presentation to others — and to the world at large — must be more than simple bluff and bluster. In order to make an impression — and an impact — on the world around us, we must first convince ourselves, bolster our confidence and actually know ourselves. In essence, Kingly Leo, must first learn self rule before becoming an effective leader of others. Right out of the starting gate, the Leo New Moon provides a boost of energy and confidence. Potent aspects to Jupiter expand our perspective and our ambitions. We begin to seek to expand our sphere of influence. Our intellect gets a boost and our energy levels are enhanced following the New Moon. Our challenge is to avoid exaggerating our capacity and capability as our confidence grows.

The Moon is VOC nearly all day Sunday. Arrogance and excessive pride could create some troublesome wreckage and also cause us to miss the softer and more compassionate effects of the Sun-Chiron trine. Exaggeration and overconfidence leads to some significant misunderstandings on Monday. We will do better to take a deep breath and wait for clarity. We should avoid playing games and taking unnecessary chances on Tuesday. The important action is to be sure of our footing and double check any and all elements upon which we have any reliance. The turn comes on Wednesday evening with the Leo New Moon and stationary direct Mercury. Intellectual capacity quickly gets a boost and energy levels begin to rise. As confidence rises so does our ambition. However, we will need to guard against exaggeration. Presentation and performance is demanded on Friday and the pressure may feel quite strong. We should guard against promising more that we can actually deliver. We have a test of our increasing confidence on Saturday. If we spend too much time worrying about how others are treating us, we'll disrupt our own creative spirit.
