August 16th New Moon In Leo: Authentic Desires

    SIGN: Leo

    ELEMENT: Fire

    PLANETARY RULER: Sun in Leo

    DEGREE: 23°

    DATE: Wednesday, August 16th, 2023

    TIME: 5:38 AM EST


    • New Moons are a moment of manifestation. This is a moment to plant seeds. 
    • Leo energy knows how to light up a room and this lunation will be no different. However, because of a conjunction with Black Moon Lilith…there’s an added layer of depth and mystery that accompanies this shine. Some of our most passionate desires are ready to be showcased over the coming six months and this is the ultimate moment to lay the groundwork for bringing those dreams into the spotlight.
    • Because Venus is retrograde in Leo during this New Moon as well, there’s a big push here to re-define our values. Make a commitment to yourself to revisit your favorite qualities over the remainder of this year, and don’t forget to celebrate your wins along the way.
    • Make a note of the corresponding Leo Full Moon that will happen on January 25th, 2024. Whatever seeds you’re deciding to plant now will reach a new point of growth in their life cycle around that time. Think about how you’d like to be shining by the beginning of the new year.
    • The signs that will feel this New Moon most intensely are the fixed signs: Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius.

     

    • JOURNAL PROMPTS: What traits in others seem to trigger you? How would you spend 24 hours in a judgment free zone? When was the last time you felt celebrated?
