The Leo New Moon on July 28th comes to us with sweet, creative and joyful energy perfect for creativity and connectivity.
It represents the perfect time to check where we are in our lives and where we still need to make progress.
Are we moving in a direction that feels aligned with our deepest desires?
Are we making sure that each day is filled with actions that reflect our intentions?
Are we living in positivity or going through the motions of old habits and behaviors?
It doesn’t matter if you feel happy with your current situation or not, this New Moon in Leo is shining with positive energy to support any change you wish to make.
As New Moons are always a new beginning, a starting point – this is the ideal time for planting new seeds and setting new intentions which you can then revisit in six months at the Full Moon corresponding in Leo.
Jupiter Trine and passion Leo
The fact that Jupiter is very active under this July New Moon is what brings such a beautiful and positive energy.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance.
Together with the symbolism of Leo the lion, we have an extra dose of confidence and courage to enter the most empowered selves.
Leo is a fire sign full of passion, pride, courage, and the strength and self-esteem to shine.
This instills in all of us the desire to have fun, express ourselves freely and vibrate at a high and positive frequency in everything we do.
Leo shows us that we can be the rulers of our own world.
We must emerge as heart-centered leaders, unashamedly being our most authentic selves and taking up space with our creativity, love, joy and passion.
We can harness this fiery and passionate, inspired energy to support our dreams and desires.
Even if you’re already feeling super inspired and excited about life, this New Moon will help cement those feelings and keep you on track to be the best, bravest and brightest version of yourself.
You may not realize where you are being held back even in the smallest of ways, all that you shed and release now will support you in your alignment with your highest self.
The New Moon will also guide us to connect more with our heart space and the energy that radiates from that center.
A Quick Ritual to Connect with your Heart Space
To really maximize your connection with all this beautiful New Moon energy you can do this ritual as many times as you want throughout the day.
Think about what you would like to expand in your life right now.
Close your eyes and take a deep breath, inhaling and exhaling.
Now put your hand (any hand) on your heart.
Try to let your mind become quiet and free of intrusive thoughts by simply noticing them and letting them go.
Now ask your heart what it needs most from you right now?
Allow yourself to be very open to any feeling, emotion, or message that comes to you.
Don’t overthink this or you’ll start to doubt yourself! Don’t analyze it.
You may not even be able to put your answer into words. Maybe it’s something you just intuited.
A feeling for more peace, a desire to speak your truth, or to communicate better. It needs to be seen.
Just feel what arises for you and trust the message you receive.
This ritual is a nice way to check in with yourself several times over the coming days, weeks or months, not just during this New Moon.
In fact, I recommend making it a normal part of your life.
The more we can connect with what our hearts are telling us, the more we will align with our true destinies. Your heart is the authentic you.
You will find that this ritual of connecting with your heart space also helps you to surrender your desires to the Universe.
Whatever manifestations you desire, whatever intentions you are setting, let them go out into the Universe to be greeted with love.
Allow yourself to believe in your perfect outcome and Visualize it happening.
The energy of the New Moon is so powerful when you know how to connect with it properly.
You can really start your life when you use this harmonious and creative energy to inspire you.
If you don’t like something in your life, use this transformational energy to make a change.
But be proactive and hold yourself accountable for the daily tasks you choose to focus on.
Start creating the life you actually want to be living, no one else is going to do it for you.
But you will always have the support of the Universe and your own intuition through your heart space, gently guiding you forward.
Ultimately the message contained in the energy of this Leo New Moon is to connect with the infinite source of love and creativity available to us at all times.
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what really needs to be done.” – Steve Jobs
