New Moon 23° Leo
August 16 @ 5:38 am
This New Moon will be as fierce as the lion which represents it, being challenged by a stationing Uranus, but also receiving support from Mars and Pluto, who will aid in softening the blow, perhaps smoothing over some rough waters. It will occur between two major aspects, both involving Uranus, the first being Sun square Uranus, and the other, Mars trine Uranus. Moods and behaviors will be unpredictable at best, and with Uranus’ heavy involvement in all matters, together with Leo’s desire to enjoy life, it would would work better to plan as little as possible, and to see where life takes you. The more you can go with the flow, being flexible and adaptable to whatever arises, the less stressful things will be. Often what appears to be a major shakeup due to Uranus, turns out to be just what you needed to open the door to a new opportunity.
