"Leo" from Cycle of the Zodiac, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, 1907
We had a New Moon in Leo today at 7:53am Pacific. The Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars are all in Leo giving us lots of heart! The spotlight on Leo can bring a need for recognition, sometimes leading to ego battles. But Leo is the sign of heart, creativity, beauty, animals and healing. Any activity involving these things will be given a boost.
Uranus at 20 degrees Aries sits in a trine to this new moon, giving us new insights into the events of the last month. Uranus brings sudden events, eccentric people and glimpses of the future. This planet's desire for independence and authenticity can heighten the romantic reassessment in the air from the current Venus Retrograde. It's a natural time to reevaluate relationships, but don't commit to a course of action until Venus goes Direct in October.
