The New Moon in Leo – 18th August 2020
Our monthly New Moon arrives in the self-assured sign of Leo. The lion king of the zodiac, with all of its regal prowess, signals the beginning of the end of the summer blitz of moon energy. The fire sign leads by example by bringing a time of retrospectives of our inner selves. Every sign in the zodiac may be affected by the new moon, as Mercury, in conjunction with the Sun for a bit of scrutiny and self-awareness.
With all this thinking, it is an ideal time to open up those lines of communication. Thinking of others who may miss us or need us. Plus we can use the changing of the seasons as a springboard into a fresh start. Lending us a new perspective and pointed direction is always welcome. Leo is strong enough for all of us to follow its example!
How Does the Moon Work?
Did you know the Moon always shows us the same face? There is no one single dark side of the moon. It is a celestial sphere that takes 27 days to rotate on its own axis and rotates around our planet once every 27.3 days.
What we see when we look at the moon is simply reflected sunlight. On average, the moon will rise about 50 minutes later each day, which means sometimes it rises during the day time and others during night time hours.
When we experience a New Moon, the satellite is between Earth and the Sun. The part of the moon facing towards us on the ground receives no direct sunlight. The only light source is the dim sunlight reflected from Earth. The new moon technically fully appears in the night sky in the UK in early hours at 03:41. Recent weather permitting of course!
The Moon in Astrology
Now, this New Moon happens to be a lucky trine aspect with Mars, which gives it a boost upon the usual impetuous NEW MOON energy. However, you will want to make the most of this – apply it in ways that actually get things done. There’s also a bit of Saturn influence in the mix which means tempers can flare – but, if you allow yourself constructive outlets, you should be fine. Creativity or physical outlets are fantastic ways of doing this.
With the Leo energy, you may be feeling just a bit more impulsive, more inclined to react, rather than respond. This is something you’ll want to resist in most cases. Though, it’s also important to consider that there are in fact, some things which need rebelling against.
Beware the Leo tendency towards drama. With the Mars/Saturn influences, add in that Venus/Neptune: you may find intense situations cloud your judgement. Stick to your principals and you’ll make your way through these situations and come out much better for it.
When is the Next New Moon?
The next New Moon will appear on the 17th of September 2020 in the early hours and will be in the sign of Virgo. What will this moon mean for us? Find out next month!
