New Moon in Leo 16th August 2023

The New Moon in Leo is exact 16th August 2023 at 5:38am EDT / 10:38am BST / 7:38pm AEST at 23°17′ Leo.

Leo new moon energy is focused on new beginnings with confidence, courage, creativity & the inner child. However, I invite you to find your own personal meaning for the new moon. What’s coming up for you this new moon? Feel into what’s beginning for YOU…

This new moon is close to Venus Retrograde, so this Venus Rx energy is being ignited by this new moon. Venus retrograde is often a time when our finances & relationships may be adversely affected or need some reflection. [Find out more about Venus Retrograde in this episode].

The Leo new moon is also making a harmonious trine with the North Node & Chiron, asteroid of healing. Your new moon intentions may flow in harmony with your greater destiny and your healing journey.

Set goals in alignment with what you want to heal & grow. Do you need to heal your relationships or money blocks? Do you need to heal your physical energy so you can feel more motivated to take tangible action towards your goals?

Be aware of sabotaging your goals through spontaneous decisions or trying to do things differently. As this new moon is square with Uranus, it can bring challenges (or breakthroughs) with how you rebel or innovate. Don’t feel like you have to start all over again – how can you reuse what you’ve already started?
