Leo New Moon: August 14 2015

Bright ideas may couple a beautiful day this morning. An early start maximizes the good vibes.

Be alert for people whose exuberance may be as unchecked as a golden retriever puppy; you don’t want to trip on someone’s paws.

The Leo New Moon happens at 10:53 AM ET. All New Moons present the opportunity to put a fresh face on a familiar goal, as well as to begin something brand new. In Leo, the sign of the Divine Child, there is an emphasis on anything that sparks creative curiosity.

Art projects, design, theatrical expression, storytelling, inspired risks (like a love affair or conception) all go under Leo’s golden umbrella. You can certainly plan to launch whatever you like at a New Moon and benefit from the bio-logic synastry of the act, however when the germ of the idea complements Leo energy, you receive an extra push.

Although there is a tendency to hit the ground running, a sober assessment for what’s required to pull off an activity with success is advised.otherwise you will find yourself in mid-action playing catch-up, like an unplanned pregnancy or a business venture without enough funds.

Enthusiasm peaks late morning; relationships sparkle in the afternoon. Money may be found on the sidewalk and an overall glow enhances the mood.

By evening, the sense of entitlement may start to ebb with an increased awareness of the cost. This needn’t dampen the experience. There are blessings in ones ability to meet obligations. Part of your New Moon intention is not only the dream realized but the means to achieve it.

This symbol mirrors the energy of this New Moon beautifully. it conjures a picture of a common bird, from its adroit flight to graceful landing. The added wonder of this image is that the pigeon is a workhorse. she has delivered a message. not only do we observe a captivating action but we receive its gift.

As you contemplate the best way to utilize the power of this New Moon, consider an action that puts your best foot forward and is followed up by willingness to deliver.

The ritual of an abundance check can help to channel that desire to “do something”- For abundance check information:

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
