This New Moon is all about your inner child and how your creative, joyous, and self-expressive self wants to be free. Leo ruled play, creativity, community, children, romance, and all qualities linked to the Sun. Leos are optimistic, confident, passionate, bold, warm-hearted, generous, and youthful-spirited people who go after what they want with gusto! Ruled by the Sun, a lot of high energy and passion is available to you now.
Key qualities of Leo:-
- Generous, fun-loving, playful, dominant, self-authoritative, leading, and incredibly kind, Leo is a symbol for the heart and the heart of the Zodiac. Their ruling glyph is the Lion, and lions are known for their regal and noble nature. As big lovers of community, family and the ancient, invisible thread that binds us, this New Moon offers a chance to develop closer bonds, platonic, romantic, family, and business bonds.
- The Sun is a dominant and masculine-yang force in our lives, so in addition to all the qualities of the heart- kindness, generosity, benevolence, etc.; expect to see a rise in characteristics linked to the solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus chakra is located between your Sacral and Heart and represents willpower, confidence, personal power & authority, ambition, intellectual forces, and your sense of purpose. These are excellent qualities to turn your attention to now…
- Leo rules the astrological 5th house- pleasure, play, creativity, and community. This is a real family influence, as even if you don’t have children of your own you will find yourself wanting to be around children, perhaps even teaching them or helping them grow through your own skills & talents. Simultaneously, your need for romance and sexual expression will be heightened, which brings out your sexually sovereign adult self.

How this New Moon is affecting you personally?
Fire signs (Aries, Leo & Sagittarius)
Be bold, be brilliant, and lead from your heart and soul. You´re given full permission to shine in the way only you know how, but you still need to maintain some class, dignity, and grace. Step into self-leadership with that playful joy and passion everyone loves. Everyone needs some fire energy in their life, and you are so in tune with your inner child that even the dullest or mellow people are inspired by your charisma and excitement. Remember to attend to practical and domestic affairs as well, as Leo represents family and authority.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn)
Intellectual gifts come to you through creative expression and adopting more holistic, expansive, and even visionary ways to view your craft. Try not to focus too much on the small details, but certainly take care of your financial and practical affairs. You already have a strong foundation in play, so let your light and inner child show more. Be a bit more fun, carefree, and passionate! Try to break out of your comfort zones, connect with others from your community or social circle and be more imaginative.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra & Aquarius)
Wow others by showing them how charismatic, confident, and charming you can be. Take the lead- don’t be shy. Even more sensitive and empathic water signs will be open to your colorful mind and expressive insight. There’s a natural synergy and flow this month where everyone steps into their true role. If you happen to shine more confidently and extrovertedly in the spotlight, there’s nothing wrong with this! Always remember to listen and take a breather, also giving the more passive people around you space to speak. Much learning and cooperation can come about now.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces)
You know your place, so it’s no wonder you’re more than happy to be an emotional and spiritual force in others lives right now. Your imaginative, creative, and intuitive gifts shine through when you act naturally and don’t try to swim against the current. Only speak up and be excitable or communicative when you want to; listen to your feelings and inner needs. You are a prime example of how subtly, sensitivity, and magnetism can win just as much as seeking the limelight. Be amazing through blending into the background, as true power comes through pure intentions and sincere actions…
Key themes of This Month's New Moon
Sexual Play and Passion
Your need for sexual union and play will increase, and you will notice the spark of your libido and desires for more casual, primal, or playful sex. Yes, romance will be sparked too, but primarily your focus will be on physical pleasure- how you can let your primal passions & instincts be free. Through embracing, accepting, and expressing your sexual needs and urges- hopefully with a soulmate, divine lover, or committed partner- you don´t want to give your spiritual and life force energies away to any random stranger or low-vibed “toxic” person (more on this oon); you open new pathways and doors. What does this mean?
Healthy sexual release stimulates kundalini energy, awakens your emotions, activates your higher mind and higher self, and acts as a catalyst to self-development and healing. Sexual release when done with a loving and non-toxic partner pushes you towards self-honesty and authenticity, especially when it´s engaged in with some emotional, romantic, or soul-level bond. Intimacy is an amazing catalyst to your higher self.
As the heart of the Zodiac, this Leo New Moon teaches you how to open up and let the love flow. Being in tune with your emotions and primal desires, least to mention your spiritual and sexual needs, helps you to align with your true path and purpose. Creativity and synchronicity with your life path can start from sexual liberation and the outwar flow of emotional, psychological, spiritual, and sexual-physical energy! Professional and work-related goals and projects all get a major boost from healing your sexuality. People who are aware of how holistic well-being and living works, and how the chakra system and kundalini operate; are aware of the power of healthy sexual expression. Life force energy flows up our spine, and the kundalini is essentially the following…
- Life force energy
- Sexual energy
- Spiritual & psychic energy
- Creative energy
- Instinctive & intuitive energy
So, awakening and activating your holistic body through intimacy, emotional connection, physical touch, and being real with your primal needs allows you to progress in multiple areas in life.
Children and Creativity
Your July and start of August would not be complete without some focus on children, community, and creativity. This really is an amazing time to take your passions, ideas, and talents to the next level through working with children and the younger generation. Teach a class, upload some free educational videos to Youtube, or write a blog. Explore opportunities in your town or city- actually, get out and take a wander! Alternatively, do some research through the big wide web.
Drama, theater and acting take up as much of the spotlight as writing, speaking and teaching. Music, art, and poetry or the spoken word? There is so much choice for you right now, so you need to determine where your skills lie and what direction you should take. If you’re not already knowledgeable about your numerology, check out how to calculate your unique life number and what it subsequently means. Knowing your life path can provide incredible insight and direction. For example, if you´re aware that you are a life path 11, you will know the best use of your energy is anything to do with utilizing your psychic, sensitive, and empathic gifts.
11´s are the master intuitives who are gifted in subtle and spiritual perception, poetry, music, art, storytelling, speaking, healing, and a range of subtle influences. Life path 9? Your true path is tied into humanitarian, charitable, and altruistic efforts, regardless of how great or small.
Back to children, the high vitality and passionate energies of this Leo moon can put you on a path of realizing just how important the younger generation are. Leo knows how to teach, lead, and speak and act from the heart; to share gifts that can create a lasting mark, lasting change, and a generational shift. There is a wonderful authority and dominant energy combined with benevolence and sincerity associated with Leo.
The drama may sometimes initiate- they love the excitement and upbeat energy, which can occasionally lead to chaos and drama! But they are genuine with a lot of love and affection to give. Expressing yourself imaginatively, artistically and creatively in both an informal situation and a professional one are highly effective ways at channeling this excitable influence. Personal success and achievement benefit everyone when you share your gifts.
Acts of Service… Self-Esteem
Find ways to be charitable, even if just a little. A small act of service to a stranger or organization will increase personal energy levels and your capacity to receive. The universe is abundant and benevolent. Also, work on your self-esteem and participate in hobbies and activities that lead to self-development.
This New Moon teaches you how to take pride in yourself without falling prey to arrogance or ego (shadow traits of the majestic Leo sign). It’s an excellent time to meditate on some Leo characteristics: hospitality, caring, kindness, warmth, generosity, supreme confidence, self-esteem, nobility, self-empowerment… Don´t suppress yourself for others however, do learn how to be modest and graceful. Leo may shine but they do so with charm, social charisma, and elegance.
Engaging in charity or community service will help you avoid the negative influences of this New Moon. Powerful lunar phases always risk succumbing to negative traits and tendencies, and as a fiery, dominant, highly charged and proud fire sign, this can leave you open to temptation. Ego displays, attention-seeking, lording it over others, becoming a tyrant or bully in others lives, or simply needing constant approval or praise instead of claiming your own self-love and independence, can all result. Connecting to your heart where compassion and universal love flow will negate this.
You can strengthen your heart chakra through romance, love-making (sex with soul!), spending time in nature, and working with crystals such as Rose Quartz, Rhodochrosite, Aventurine, Jade, or Malachite. Don´t forget to cleanse and charge your gemstones and crystals under this new moon’s glorious light.
There are some positive influences present as well. Jupiter is in a harmonious angle to the Leo New Moon, while Mars is making its way to an alignment with Uranus at the time of the New Moon. Jupiter increases expansion, luck, manifestation, and new opportunities in your life. Mars, the planet of action, vitality, and passion, allows you to really go for your dreams now- without fear or shyness.
The positive aspect with change-maker and revolutionary Uranus sparks genuine excitement at making the world, or your life, a better place. Expect idealism and a need to make the most of your talents and wisdom, putting yourself out there in a way that commands attention and recognition. Innovation, originality, and creative self-expression all increase.
The Sun is also in Leo while the Moon is. A unity of subconscious and unconscious, and conscious forces are the name of the game. This provides a gateway to balancing and harmonizing your inner forces, needs, and attributes. There’s a beautiful synergy, and you can thus find things flowing and manifesting more effortlessly than usual.
Connect to your Inner Sun and Inner Moon, and stay mindful of how yin and yang energies appear in your life. They are in a perpetual state of balance. Therefore both subconscious and conscious insight will be available to you in equal measure.
