I’m in Heaven. I’m staying with my gorgeous girlfriend of 28 years who I love like a sister. We’re hanging at her beach house catching up on “everything” whilst being warmed by the open fire, eating yummy food and relaxing in the salty stillness that only beach towns avail in the thick of winter. I slept like a baby for 9 ½ hours last night for the first time in years. Just what I needed. Why… because I am still catching up on sleep from my recent whirlwind working holiday trip to Singapore with my 2 boys AND I know when the New Moon in Leo arrives tonight (23rd July 2017), both work and life will become even more ACTION PACKED!!
At 7.45pm EST the moon starts a new lunar cycle in Leo. New Moons provide fertile energy for kicking off projects, creating new beginnings and launching ideas out into the world. With the moon’s location in Leo, this month’s energy supports germinating creative ventures in a passionate way. In short, a good time for taking steps towards realising our dreams!! What’s not to like about that energy?
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE
This new moon is an especially potent one for 3 reasons.
Firstly, the fiery, driven and warrior like planet of Mars is situated right next to tonight's new moon. This will fuel our creative spark and test our courage to do the work towards reaching our full potential and expressing that in the world in all its magical glory!!
Secondly, tonight marks the beginning of the Eclipse season. There will be a partial lunar eclipse on August 7th followed by a full solar eclipse on August 22nd. The energy of eclipses play out as a “wild card” that always herald change and reveal things that were otherwise unknown to us. You can think of them as a tool the universe is using to get us to pay attention to areas of our life that need to change in order to move towards our purpose.
Lastly, in a rare event, there will be a second new moon taking place in the sign of Leo on the same day as the Solar Eclipse. So the opportunity to really nourish our creativity stays strong for the full lunar cycle.
Personally, the energy of the eclipses excites me as it brings an opportunity to notice what I need to change to become a better version of myself. Eclipses present us with growth opportunities at a rapid rate. They can (depending on our Natal Birth Chart) uproot us, surprise us and get us moving. They have the potential to rapidly force us to move out of any sort of complacency and mature personally and professionally to a higher level.
