The New Moon in Leo on August the 2nd is in dialogue with Saturn, currently in Sagittarius. And it’s a conversation which flows with ease – they’re in a trine aspect . This implies that, before we leap into action , we need to do some work and apply some common sense, if we want to accomplish our goal. The Leo enthusiasm, courage and confidence need to be accompanied by a sense of commitment, practicality and responsibility
” Do anything, but let it produce joy” HENRY MILLER

Leo’s aim is to express joy, to create and to play. Leo wants to shine !
Leo symbolises the Child, the King and the Queen, the Entertainer, the Star , but also the Dictator, the Megalomaniac, the Spoiled Child . When out of alignment, the Leo is melodramatic, domineering and arrogant.
We all have Leo somewhere in our chart . Find out what house it’s in and that’s where you express the Leo qualities. Is it in your 5th house? Then perhaps you shine through your creative artwork. In the 3rd? Maybe your’re a confident and warm speaker. And so on .
At the New Moon you may want to spend some time reflecting on how you express this energy and set some intentions related to the area of your life where Leo sits in your chart .

In what ways might I “shine”?
