The next New Moon is on August 16 in the sign of Leo.
New Moons are a time for activation, initiation, creation, and go-getting ambition. It’s time to make a start on new adventures, goals, projects, and activity. You are brimming with energy and enthusiasm, so invest it wisely into something that will bring positive rewards.
This New Moon encourages us to activate personal goals that are aligned with Leo’s self-promotion and passionate energy.
Step up, stand in the spotlight, move to the front and centre. Lead, perform, activate, create, showcase, take control.
You can’t play second fiddle all your life, or hide behind others. Eventually, you will come into your own power and you will be ready to take the top spot and shine.
Now is the time to start.
Let the tarot give you a nudge as to what proactive and self-promoting magic you can manifest this New Moon.
