A Pristine Canvas: New Moon in Leo August 14th, 2015

 

Today on August 14th is a New Moon in the sign of Leo. It is conjunct retrograde Venus in Leo, trining Uranus in Aries.

New Moons represent beginnings; they help usher in a new direction of energy in our lives. Whatever was ended or completed with the last Full Moon, the following New Moon will come in and attempt to let you begin or start a new task.

This New Moon in Leo could lead to opportunities with methods or outlets of self expression, creativity, and leadership (all Leo themes). The possibility exists to have new doors open with anything child or childhood related as well.

Some ways this can manifest is a sudden (Uranus) opportunity in your field to take on a role that sets you in a leadership position among your coworkers. Maybe you will turn a creative project into a budding business. Or, perhaps you will discover a new hobby that you and a special child in your life can explore more together. Maybe you will even find a way to resolve and move forward from pains or hurts stemming from childhood.

Either way, you can actively utilize this energy by focusing on these types of Leonine themes and applying them to your own life.

Full Blue Moon in Aquarius July 31, 2015

On July 31st, we have the third Full Moon in the month of July – something so rare, it is called a Blue Moon; hence the expressions “Once in a Blue Moon” or “Only during a Blue Moon”.

The meaning of a Full Moon centers around the concept of completion. The tree is ripe and ready to bear fruit, we are on at the last chapter, a finale is upon us. The stage is being set in some way for the New Moon in Leo on August 14th.

Aquarius is an Air sign, known for detachment. Aquarius operates uniquely, often many steps ahead of the rest; they don’t have time to get hung up on meaningless details. Uranus is the sign’s co-ruler, so it’s no wonder why people associate Aquarius with rebels and rebellion. But Aquarius is a wonderful humanitarian sign, doing a lot of good for many.

So what does this all mean? In many people’s lives, something has definitely run it’s course. I feel that since this is happening in the sign of Aquarius, it is going to affect people on a massive scale, or have to do with a project or idea that many people have invested their time or energy in. Maybe the time has come to stop detaching, and instead we need to learn to attach (or perhaps vice versa). Venus is in retrograde after all, and a lot of people have been taking a step back and reviewing their relationships. Again, since Uranus is the co-ruler of Aquarius, something completely unexpected my pop up, and end just as quickly.

I find it somewhat ironic that when I turned on the news this morning, they were talking about finding new debris from the missing Boeing 777, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Some feel that airplanes and advanced technology fall under the sign of Aquarius, and with Uranus Rx, and the Full Moon in Aquarius, a part of me wonders if we will find out more about the plane’s mysterious disappearance?

Full Moons often bring about endings in order for you to plant fresh seeds at the following New Moon, so keep this mind if you are faced with a heavy decision to make, or you feel that a door has been unfairly closed in your face.
