The Leo New Moon is July 30, 2011 at 12:40 p.m. (Mountain Time). The Sun and Moon are at 7 degrees and 15 inches Leo, so look to your chart to find those degrees of Leo to see which area of life and planets are directly affected by this New Moon.
All Leo New Moons are about expression, creativity, heart-centered ventures, fun and play.
This is an extremely active New Moon energy, heavily aspected other planets:
The Sun and Moon are conjunct (joined, 0 degree aspect) to Venus in Leo,
square (harsh, 90 degree aspect) to Jupiter in Taurus,
trine (harmonious 120 degree aspect) to retrograde Uranus in Aries,
inconjunct (difficult to reconcile 150 degree aspect) to retrograde Chiron in Pisces,
opposed 2 asteroid goddesses: Athena and Vesta in Aquarius both retrograde,
inconjunct retrograde Pluto in Capricorn……YIKES!
What does it all mean? Well, in a nutshell, this is a day to plant seeds of Leo themes (above) tempered with generosity, originality and intelligent risk-taking. This expression of creativity, love and play at its best will recognize the flexibility of gender roles and touch in on a deep transformative soul-level….okay, perhaps that sounds really big and over-whelming? That’s exactly the point! Let your light shine through. You’ve got nothing else but this moment to be everything that you are. Don’t wait to shine your light and be the best YOU you can be!
Some other significant astrological events to consider (look for more articles this week on Mercury and the Mars/Pluto/Uranus aspects):
On August 3rd Mars will move into Cancer and oppose Pluto (exact on August 10th) and square Uranus (exact on August 9th).
Mercury goes retrograde on August 2nd until it stations direct on August 26th…during this time Mercury will make 3 exact oppositions to dreamy Neptune: July 28, Aug. 8 and Sept. 8).
