There’s a great need for voices to be heard now, but not the ones which usually take centre stage. We need to hear new messages, fresh perspectives, voices previously silenced or whispered only in darkened rooms out of earshot.
Today’s New Moon encourages us to joyful expression and a releasing of burdens. Here we have an opportunity to take life a little less seriously and find a more playful approach to some of the things that try us.
The Leo new Moon falls on August 6 in the United States and August 7 in Australia. It's a bit of a push-me pull-you type of new Moon as it trines Uranus but squares the Moon's nodes. There could be confusion over what's really going on, are we coming or going?
Deep within the fabric of our lives, woven from its twists and turns, challenges and blessings, shocks and surprises, rests a sacred obligation often overlooked: an obligation to truth which trumps every responsibility we carry and commitment we undertake.
So today we have a lesson in maintaining just such objectivity, first from the Moon and then from Mercury. Until the Moon enters Gemini at 15:43 GMT (31st July) she is Void of Course (free of aspects to any other planet), encouraging us, as I mentioned yesterday, to just BE.
As we approach the month end feelings may be running high and tensions sharpening the air around us. For the coming few days Uranus is especially under pressure from Mars and Pluto forming a T Square, and Venus and the North Node forming a Yod.
As the Sun moves in to Leo (7/22 - 8/22), it activates the *Annual* Check-In with your Heart & Authentic Self, are you being true to YOU? and expressing your unique *Light & Brilliance* from the inside out?
This energy may help balance out the rest of the things happening this week (hopefully). Try to tap into it if you can, but it is up against some major movement so don't be surprised if you miss its influence altogether.
This weekend the heavens are awash with energy, potential and possibility. To be honest, in its entirety it may all be a bit too much for us so we need to pick and choose wisely how we use these energies now.
