As I’m writing this, we have ten days until the New Moon occurs. This will be the Strawberry New Moon; in correlation with the Full Moon we just had on June 9th.
The Full Moon on the 9th was in Sagittarius which encouraged us to release and let go of some emotional bondage we were experiencing in our life. It was an intense and transformative Full Moon that affected the tides within you, whether or not you really realized it.
As the New Moon occurs it will be shifting into Leo which means we are starting to feel the intensity of these emotions. They might lead us to great relief or deep anger and resentment. It is up to you as an individual to decide which path you will take. No one has control over your life except yourself; no one can set you free except yourself. It cannot be given to you.
Leo Moons can affect us by encouraging explosive glee or spontaneous outbursts. You will feel a tug towards adventure and experiencing something new. If you follow this feeling, it will lead you to a new outlook you have desperately been needing. Keep your sunny outlook on life, keep encouraging your friends and family, and most of all don’t forget to encourage yourself to be the best you, you can be.
Pride is a major issue for Leo’s and since the New Moon will be in Leo, it will play a part in the ego that exists in every single one of us. Is your pride helping or hindering you? Is your ego INFLATED or DEFLATED? Work on transforming the mind into something productive and useful for society; steer yourself away from materialism and false beliefs.
Leo’s are also very well known for theatrics. They are extremely entertaining to watch and are very boisterous when in a room of people. They do not hold their tongue and they do not worry about how the words affect others. As the New Moon enters Leo it will, in the darkness of night, encourage us to express some deep feelings and act out in ways we typically don’t. It’s fun when the audience is joyful but its disastrous when the audience is reacting in disgust; whoever that audience may be.
This New Moon should be fun though. Buddha taught a middle road. A balance between all things. I’m not perfect at this; I find myself swaying from one side of the road to the other (mentally anyways) all the time. I keep stones on me to help as reminders to bring my vocal tone down and to keep my chi centered. Have fun with this moon. Let go of the things that are holding you back in life, live and let live.
Transformations don’t always have to be chaotic.
Love & Light to you all.
