On August 18, 2020, at 9:42pm CST, the Sun, Moon, and Mercury will conjunct (share the same degrees in their sky location) at 26°34’’ degrees of Leo, creating a trine (120° angle) with Mars in Aries.
A LOT OF FIRE, that is! This will affect you in various ways, depending on your birth chart. In general, however, this new moon invites us to sit still in the heart of our passionate flames to listen to our hearts.
What matters to you right now? What makes you burn with inspiration? What is being purified by the flames of moment-by-moment experience to allow a new level of identity and awareness to come to life?
In medical astrology, the sign of Leo corresponds to the physical heart and, emotionally, to the “brave heart” of the cour-ageous ones (courage comes from the French “coeur,” heart).
A New Moon phase is a good time to open up to new possibilities: listen to your heart with kindness and wait for inspiration.
It is NOT a good time to rush into anything. Lions do not rush. They are noble and paced and KNOW how to WAIT.
