October 6, 2021 Libra New Moon Astrology Forecast

This Libra New Moon is going to kick off new spiritual meanings and opportunities on October 6 – and make available to us new energies to align with. There will passionate and igniting energies, and some may feel this as anger. There may be restlessness and and a radical shift in perspective that has us re-examining what karma means – and what we’ve done to incur good or bad karma. To complicate things, Uranus will aspect this moon, to agitate us further. Small bodies in the heavens such as asteroids will stir up additional conflicts. Be aware of yourself and don’t take arguments too far! Tone down your urge to be combative.

Mars will give you an extra push to get projects done, staying in Libra until October 30th, first, even while the sun will be departing from Libra energies on October 22. It will be an excellent time to redecorate, re-design, re-imagine life by pulling on those Libra talents that appreciate the artistic, and mingle with the crowd – maybe even plan now for your Halloween party!

All these aspects with Uranus and Mars may not be doing much for your work-life balance, but the New Moon is going to help you reset and rethink your boundaries. All that Libra energy is there to be tapped into doing what Libra does best, which is strike the harmonic balance in relationship. This is an excellent time to commit to personal goals and catch up with friends. Check in with your network, set aside some special time to renew those ties.

All these planets and asteroid converging in Libra help create an element of air into our reality. This element dominates our daily life and will be there to help us tap into inspiration and discover new mindsets. The wind of change follows these aspects, opening our minds and lives to new possibilities.

As the ruler of Libra, Venus will guide you through your familiar house full of commitment, ties and close personal relationships. As the ruling planet and ruler of Libra’s New Moon, Venus moves into Scorpio, turning watery, dark and deep for the autumn season.  Venus brings the right astrological weather for intimate bonds to grow stronger and more intense.

On the same day as the New Moon in Libra, Pluto changes from direct to retrograde in April. The day on which the planets are directly stationed is considered a day of strength, and it coincides with the theme of the new moon, which we will sit up and take notice. 

We will feel Pluto’s deep and powerful activating force, so this New Moon seems to be a good opportunity to reflect on the transformation in one’s life, the changes of the year, and what we have sown and reaped in the harvest season. Especially now, in these autumnal days and nights when the veil between worlds becomes thin.

August 8, 2021 – Leo New Moon Astrology Forecast

The new moon on August 8th activates the Leo energy in all of us and it is the perfect time to find inner confidence – think of the confidence of the proud and sleek lion – allow us to transcend our borders and feel the unlimited potential of our being. Aquarius is a leader in innovation and authenticity, and Leo will be able to engage with influence and self-expression. The desire to connect with people and the universe will be strong.

The universe sends out vibes to make romance a bigger part of your life than usual. For those affected by the new moon in their 7th house, the house of partnership, your relationships with significant others, dear friends and close colleagues will come under scrutiny and criticism, and it is time to develop inventive new approaches to common goals. It may sound counter-intuitive at first, but these moments will take you in the right direction. Romance might be a big part of it!   

The best time to make new changes is during this increasing lunar phase between August 8th and 22nd, when this new moon culminates into the full moon. Uranus will help you in a unique and perhaps unexpected way. The new moon affects all signs of the zodiac, but Leo and Aquarius will be more sensitive to the energies released during this time.

Leo is everything to do with fun, creativity romance, sexiness, and self-expression, and this is where the new moon will bring out those energies. This New Moon calls for a party of sweet romance, joy and laughter – our challenge will come from the interruption of Saturn and Uranus who will want to join the party, but end up dragging it down. Their presence means we will have to work this time a little harder to find the silver lining to this month’s new moon. Leo will certainly equip us to live up the challenge and find that silver lining, and make it work for us! The moon will only give us a day, but during that day it will launch serious energy and impact wherever you go.

Keep an eye out for the next major astrological event for Leo, which is the full moon in Aquarius on August 22. We’ll cover it more in depth as we get close to that magical date, but make note of it, as will be the second Aquarian full moon in a row. The universe might be telling us something!

The new moon is here to radiate new and important energies into the universe, and we want to be well equipped to ride those cosmic rays when we are fortunate enough to be present for it. The new moon will have the power to regenerate and rejuvenate us. Just like we sometimes have to restart our computers, reboot our phones, this new moon will give us a spiritual reboot and the opportunity to start over, but with fresh insights. The New Moon in August 2021 in Leo affects all zodiac signs, and Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio might also find they are feeling the friction. New chapters will begin for those who are in fixed signs.

For those fixed signs, this moon might not be the most enjoyable as Leo might have promised, but could come with the seeds of greatness if they sow them now. The warm and sunny New Moon in Leo will spark new aspirations, faith projects, plans and undertakings that will open up innovative thinking and visionary ideas. The Leo New Moon on August 8 will illuminate the way forward and leading the way to compassion and understanding.

This energy will make the veil between the dimensions thinner and make it easier for our loved ones, angels and spirit guides to find us when we most need it. Stay away from the ego and work with the beautiful energy that is available. For you Leos, you are a bold force to be reckoned with, and you will all feel elevated during this lunation.

Lively, pumping and chatty, this New Moon will make you feel as though it is a reward as a direct result of all the work you have put in. If this moon is hitting your 4th house, his Moon will spur you to make changes in domestic affairs, and you may find yourself ordering a security system, or redefining what security means in an emotional sense.

Sun in conjunction with Moon represents the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new 28-day cycle. The new moon in August 2021 will be in the constellation of Leo on August 8, 2021 at 4.14 pm, making it one of the most important planetary aspects of the challenging square of Uranus. It shakes things up, turns them upside down, and we are forced to see things in a new way. The star of the lion’s head bestows cruelty and hardheartedness, but also courage in the face of sudden changes in circumstances.

Ride this big cat into bold and brave new dreams! Use Leo’s playful impulse to embrace your biggest ambitions – it may seem a little disorienting, but don’t worry, the Lions have you. It’s a time for ambition.

July 9, 2021 Cancer New Moon Astrology Forecast

For this new moon, the luminaries are united in sign – Cancer is the domain of the 4th house, the private center of our lives, our domestic space, where our soul resides and the moon is in dignity. Family, hearth and home unite here. On June 20, the sun marked its highest point in the sky, heralding the start of the summer season. Now is the time to relax under the radiant glow of the mid summer sun, to revel in the finer moments of summer – on the beach, nursing a cocktail, reading a book in a hammock under the dappled green. The season the crab brings with it a tenderness.

During this time, we are encouraged to evaluate our emotional stability and security to ensure that we stand on a solid foundation of which we can continue to dream of our future goals. With the beginning of July, the fiery sun continues to swim in the tidal pool of Cancer.

On July 9, a new moon enters Cancer, triggering a new beginning. This is a time to nurture our foundations, including the foundations that we have built for ourselves. Everything must be nurtured and honored. The New Moon opens doors to our lives, accentuated by our rising or sun signs.

The New Moon in July 2021 is well placed for all of us to experience the new and exciting into our lives, along with greater self-awareness. Neptune’s retrograde step, which extends from June 24 to December 1, strengthens intuition during this time. Unexpected opportunities and a willingness to change can help overcome setbacks. The best time to start a new project is during the increasing lunar phase between July 9 and 23, when the moon is waxing. The influence of the new moon on July 9 will last about four weeks until the new moon on August 8.

The path to independence will also have challenges. We are still in the midst of a Mercury in retrograde hangover that finally stationed direct on June 22. This time, Venus is keen to throw a wrench into our plans with this new moon. Delays and limitations will make themselves known, take stock of your love life and your bank account, as the goddess of love and money will evoke these themes. These two areas of our life, love and money, will feel the most stress during this new moon. There may be new partnerships or new compromises on the horizon. Weigh everything carefully, including your options.

Romantic Venus entered the constellation of Leo on June 27 and encouraged passion and generosity in relationships. Come to the new moon on July 9th, invite your loved ones to celebrate in your new bright place.

The Universe focuses on building new stability in one of the most important areas of your life and getting you to move out of your comfort zone and make a fresh start. If you are not stable, judge why you feel the way you do, and improve as you progress. Shaking things up will not work if you lose touch with your personal emotional strength and its roots in the soul. 

The measures you take in the days after July 9 will culminate in a full moon on December 18, 2021. Plant your seeds now, take note and measure the growth – you may come further than you would have imagined in a few months.

Remember that it is important to feel good and to give ourselves a time to rest. Recover under the united sun and moon, they will shine upon and you lend you the strength you need. In the domestic area of your chart, the Sun and Moon refine issues surrounding home, house, property, heritage, and where your family truly comes from. When you give yourself a fresh start, focus on how you feel settled, safe and secure.

Leo New Moon 8/17/2020 – Echoes of 2017, Sifting Through Rubble

Photo by Alexas Fotos at Pexels.com

On August 18, 2020, we have a new moon in Leo at 26 degrees occurring at 10:42 pm

It may seem like forever ago, Cosmic Dreamers, but it was a mere 3 years ago that we experienced a major solar eclipse. Our world forever changed from that moment, and this Leo new moon echoes that degree from 2017. We have since experienced a major conjunction between the Lord of Death, Lord of Discipline, and the Lord of Expansion. We have had frightful squares and Uranus changed signed from Aries to Taurus. What have all these changes done for you, or to you?

The sun and the moon are at 26 degrees of Leo. Our conduct is more important now than ever before. New moon is asking us what our intentions are and how we will treat others – equitably, or disrespectfully? There will be consequences for either choice, but we will be aligned across our emotional and private selves, our public and logical selves.

Mercury is at the 28th degree of Leo in tight configuration with the luminaries. This means our communications are lost in the competing beams of the sun and the moon – Mercury is combust, too close to express himself well. Our communications may be lost in translation, over looked, or perhaps argumentative. Negative effects may be tempers fraying and difficulty connecting to our emotional center.

Additionally, Mars at 24 degrees of Aries is trining the Sun, the Moon, and Mercury. Mars’ trine is significant, as he intends to speed up  the effects of his enforcement, his aggression. He is already in his shadow, gearing up for the imminent retrograde. For a breathing moment before he moves backwards, there will be accord in matters of enforcement and the powers that be. Is it a calm before the storm with congress out of session, or will Mars aggression be backed by the power of government? 

Saturn at 26 degrees of Capricorn is inconjunct to the sun and the moon. Our personal and public every day life is experiencing friction from other sectors: society and law, for certain. We have been constrained in every way possible in these recent months, but the message gets crueler under Saturn’s punishing pressure. It may be that current events have forced us into a prison of many different kinds – social or literal, or placed us in a bind where all of our choices are difficult ones. Seek help where you can and do your best to stay floating in this mess, you will still need to weather the hardest part.

Pluto at 22 degrees and Jupiter at 18 degrees of Capricorn are all together in this house still, recovering from their previous square with Mars, which while not exact, is perhaps a bit too close to comfort. Friction bubbles beneath the surface.

Uranus has made it through the first decan of Taurus, and finally stationed retrograde. What has happened in the past year since May of 2018 when Uranus truly make his presence known? We have been experiencing many changes, but for now we will be reviewing all that has happened. It is time to sift through the rubble of the structures that Uranus shook, and see what needs more work, needs more time, needs more destruction.
