THE NEW MOON IN LEO
The symbol of Leo is the Lion. Ruled by the Sun, its all about self-expression. When this fire sign is at its best it's highly creative, outgoing, romantic, spontaneous, fun, loyal, proud and thrives on attention. It yearns to lead and be centre stage and can be fantastic at it when confidence is high.
However, when Leos lack vision or feel thwarted in any way, they lose confidence, wound easily, get fixed on ideas and self-focussed. They need to shine and receive feedback and praise for work well done.
Here's the thing.... we all have Leo energy ruling a part of our Life. Which part is determined by your Natal Birth Chart. The part of your life Leo rules is where you're meant to shine most brightly - it has a profound impact on how your put your Innate Abilities to use in your Career!
