The New Moon is occurring on July 23 at 5:45 am Eastern Time in the sign of Leo.

This Leo New Moon is the first of twin Leo New Moons that are occurring back-to-back over July and August. This New Moon is opening the eclipse gateway and beginning the flow of powerful, transformational energy that is coming with the August eclipse season.

This marks a time of beginnings. Think of this as a great cosmic reset and a portal opening into the unknown. Doorways are opening and possibility is shining brightly on the horizon. It feels like we’ve been gearing up for something big for a while now and this is it.

Now as with all great times of rebirth, there is destruction that takes place before the transformation takes hold, like a cosmic completion where things need to end before beginnings are made. There is always great pressure before great change.

We have been journeying in this process for a few months now with the retrogrades that have spanned Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and then Neptune. This has caused so much to be pulled away, revealing great truth to our eyes in all aspects of our lives. We have walked in darkness, danced with our shadows, and faced our demons head-on.

The transformation that is in store for you depends on how much and how deep we have journeyed with them.

This doorway that is opening offers huge opportunity to begin things that we never thought we could. Leo lights a powerful fire in our lives which can melt blockages and move momentum forward in surprising ways. Leo is reminding us that all things are possible, and this is the time to follow your dreams and your desires.

You are being called to take the throne of your own life and lead in courageous new ways. This is new territory and there is much to learn. Trust in your abilities and embrace the eagerness rising as you encounter this new unfolding journey. Now is a time of setting the tone for the creation of the future, taking the initial steps for the journey ahead.

This is the new phase that is being ushered in and one that holds great power. Use it to reshape your world.

Look to create what you wish to last, and release what no longer holds relevance for you. In this expansion and contraction, much will fall away, but there is better coming in the flow. Trust that.

Watch for the pitfalls of this Moon, which can include the drama that others can throw in the way of what we are trying to create. Keep your eyes open for smooth-talking, flattery, or empty promises from others that can distract you from your path.

Leo reminds you that you deserve someone worthy to sit on the throne beside you, one who would never ask you to give up your dreams or sway you with fantasies they had no intention of fulfilling. The time has come to look to the true, the real and the authentic. That is who is worthy of standing beside you.

As always during the New Moon, this is a powerful time to set your intentions for the month ahead and for what you are wishing to call into being. This is especially important during this New Moon as this can set much of what you are wanting to create or change during this eclipse season, and over the next few months, into action.

Be detailed, be focused, be daring, and during the whole season, be selective about what you put your energy into as the Universe is listening, and where we put energy, we see manifestation. The eclipse doorway offers us an opportunity to set a pre-focus on what we are wanting to call into being and shift during the eclipse cycle, so use this time wisely to make space, clear the unneeded, and focus.,

You hold the power of transformation in the palm of your hand as the creator of your own destiny. Be mindful, be daring and walk in truth. And above all else, follow your heart. It knows the way.

How to Find Your Forecast

Find your Leo house — everybody’s got one.  First step is to look at your (free) birth chart.  Look for the symbol (Leo ♌).

The Ascendant (and its Rising Sign) starts the First House, so this forecast is more meaningful when you know your birth time.  The degrees of your wheel start at the ascendant (middle left) and run counter-clockwise around the twelve houses.  Look for the Leo symbol to find your Leo house.  Sometimes it’s across two houses, so keep that in mind.

Here’s the Forecast by House:

Leo New Moon in the First House: (House of Aries and Mars)  Bold new choices with your style.  A driving urge to breathe life into your self-image.  You could find yourself as the center of attention.  Inspired ideas about self-promotion.  Taking what’s uniquely you, and finding ways to present that in its full vibrancy.  With Leo in your first house, you take pride in your appearance and hold yourself with dignity.  Does your way of moving and looking in the world reflect who you really are?

Leo New Moon in the Second House: (House of Taurus and Venus)  Be inspired by the vivid colors of nature.  Your totem with a Leo-inspired Second House could be exotic animals, the untamed and dazzlingly colorful.  Sudden windfalls or financial opportunities that involve risk.  Investing in leisure, children, play or luxury items.  You add some theatrics to the sensual moment.  Now’s a time to envision steps to finding form for expressive talents.  You might want to gamble, since you feel lucky, but watch that it doesn’t drive you to despair.  You might make a big purchase, but at this lunation, deeply check your motives first.

Leo New Moon in the Third House: (House of Gemini and Mercury)  Telling it with dramatic flair.  Intuitive hits on how to deliver your message for greatest punch.  A fresh look at what fascinates you.  Purge old magazines and other media that’s lost its luster.  Wear a conversation piece, out and about.  Random encounters could lead to amore or friendship.  You delight in sharing ideas with great gusto, and could set things in motion as a result.

Leo New Moon in the Fourth House: (House of Cancer and the Moon)  Freshen your home with summer flowers.  An active lunation for purging (cleaning) and giving away what’s cluttering your home.  Bringing life to your creative work space, with new images, a meaningful focal point or your vision board.  Prepare your home for festive gatherings, parties and holiday feasts.  Glean treasures from your memories, especially the high points of childhood, for your memoir and other ways of sharing your story.  Add sunny colors to your space, or a luxurious piece that makes the room.

Leo New Moon in the Fifth House: (House of Leo and the Sun) A brand new love interest. Completing a creative project. Collaborations where everyone has a chance to shine. Surprises with children. Daring to be provocative, in your self-expression. News of travel or invitation to come out and play. Heightened desire to enjoy yourself, party and put time into hobbies. Turning a hobby into a livelihood?  Experiencing stability by taking risks to be yourself.  Muse on your next steps, to win your own self-respect, and acclaim from the audience whose claps you’re seeking most.

Leo New Moon in the Sixth House: (House of Virgo and Mercury or Chiron)  Restless for more acknowledgement with life’s work.  An influx of energy, perhaps a new vibrant co-worker, enlivens your day.  Humor and play on the job opens up possibilities, possibly a new friendship or amore.  Excitement about a new health idea or program.  Great time to merge interests with health, like culinary fascinations, using superfoods.  Physical energy is a focus, so be alert to messages about revitalizing on all levels.

Leo New Moon in the Seventh House: (House of Libra and Venus)  Taking a stand for more respect in relationships.  Possibly a new amore or good friend.  Stability in love comes from being appreciated and loved for your unique being.  It’s a pleasure to spend time with one other — a parent, a child, a colleague or best bud.  Sharing the spotlight, being unusually dramatic.  A commitment deepens.  Great time to make hearts for your bedroom (see Leo New Moon rituals).

Leo New Moon in the Eighth House: (House of Scorpio and Pluto)  Creativity is a catalyst, especially soulful expression from the full range of the emotional spectrum.  Passionate sex is a mover of energy, and cathartic.  Infusing life outside the control grid (matrix) with color, energy, humor.  Allowing yourself to be driven by obsessions, toward creative ends.  Turn destructive energy into wildly constructive productivity.  Gain control over addiction by rechanneling intensity into feverish creativity.  Work Eighth House magic, by transforming your consciousness with personal will — invite the universe to support your process to turn lead into gold.

Leo New Moon in the Ninth House: (House of Sagittarius and Jupiter)  Enthusiasm for travel.  Meeting someone from another culture, as a possible new friend or amore.  Falling in love with a field of study.  Invite messages about your quest for knowledge, and how it aligns with your special purpose (your Sun sign).  An adventure that reaches into your personal story, and enhances your sense of self, through the experience.  Example, traveling to the land of your ancestors.

Leo New Moon in the Tenth House: (House of Capricorn and Saturn)  Time for an ambition stirring reality check with your life’s work.  A change in status or desire for greater recognition.  Stepping into more leadership or resolving to prove yourself at work.  Daring to climb the heights of your chosen heart-led path.  Recommitting to the long-term goals, that will bring the respect you’re after.

Leo New Moon in the Eleventh House: (House of Aquarius and Uranus)  Ponder ways your personal dreams meet the greater needs of the human family.  Meeting dynamic people whose energy is vivifying, not draining.  Collaborating around a vision, with those on your (inspired) wavelength.  Seeking excitement through new visions of what’s possible.  Seeing things from a higher perspective, and thus able to encourage others.

Leo New Moon in the Twelfth House: (House of Pisces and Neptune) Powerful currents for setting in a vision.  Synchronicity that tricks out something at the edge of your conscious knowing.  Super vivid dreams and imaginative mindscapes to journey through during the day.  Tuning into the longings and desires of a gaggle of folks.  Twelfth House seclusion can be paradoxically emotionally restorative.  A vibrant inner life is your secret treasure.
