This New Moon takes place in the energetic and courageous sign of Leo.
This New Moon Cycle is heavily influenced by the sign of Mars and Uranus which could cause some tense moments this month.
The New Moon and Mars square Uranus, making this a potentially unpredictable and erratic time. Mars pulls us towards energy, action, sex, and even anger, while Uranus has us wanting to rebel and break free.
Be aware of the dynamic energy at play, and practice temperance. There are creative breakthroughs and new awareness available to you during this cycle if you are open to see it.
Each month we put together a special Energy Report using the zodiac of the Moon Cycle ahead. We also pull one card for each turning to help give us deeper insight to Lady Luna’s message for the weeks ahead.
Grab a cup of coffee and see what this New Moon Cycle has in store for you!
New Moon in Leo

Whatever this New Moon may stir up, will only increase and build until the Eclipse on August 7th. The New Moon in Leo is typically a straight forward aspect, but this one holds surprises up it’s sleeve. Stay aware and in tune with yourself, as much will be revealed during this Eclipse season. Things may come up for you that will beg for your action, but you are asked to wait for the reveal.
There is a temptation to judge others and to act quickly, as Leo is a sign of fire and action. However, try to stay playful and open minded. You are asked to lighten up and stay optimistic during these heavy times. These are important and potent times for creation and intention.
