Let your dreams come to life. The New Moon in Leo peaks on August 16, ushering in a passionate season of new beginnings and the courage to pursue your dreams. A New Moon helps you to find peace with the past lunar phase and inspires you to find the hope necessary to set a new intention and begin again. In Leo, this incorporates tuning into your heart, honoring the truth that lies there and then following it with unwavering determination.


A New Moon embodies incredible manifesting energy because anything becomes possible in this lunar phase as you set a new course and begin a new and fantastic part of your journey. A New Moon always occurs in the same zodiac sign the Sun is currently within, helping you to act more profoundly as you embrace the power of the Sun and Moon.  



The Sun rules your external self and the actions you take to make your dreams a reality, yet the Moon governs your heart and your emotional realm. Together, they provide a destined force to work with the universe to set a new intention that honors both parts of yourself. During a New Moon, you can align yourself with your heart. You begin to feel no longer the war begin waged between how you think and your choices but to see them united as you realize you can manifest your wildest dreams by honoring your deepest self.  


In Leo, as a fire sign, more focused energy will be present as you feel your dreams roar to life. For manifesting with this lunar phase, focus on what you want to do, what it feels like you want to try and even where your heart seems determined to go. Although Venus is in Retrograde in Leo, this New Moon still holds a powerful opportunity as greater truths have recently surfaced. While you may need to practice patience for the next few weeks, it hosts a powerful time for deciding what you will do once this retrograde is completed. Listen to yourself, honor your passions and allow yourself to see this as the beginning of everything.
