Celebration: New Moon in Leo Forecast and Meditation with Kimberley McSherry
Awakening Luna Within: August "New Moon in Leo" Forecast & Meditation
The New Moon of Leo heralds a month long opportunity to explore new ways to celebrate self, enhance the positive expression of ego, and consciously work on self-love. Join us as we come together to explore the many ways in which we are truly amazing beings.
Of all the planetary forces in Astrology, the influence of the Moon is the most personal and prominent our everyday lives. Coupled with the Sun, She was the first heavenly body to capture the imagination of our most primitive ancestors.
Her phases reflected the mysterious birth-life-death cycle of Nature and the reproductive power of The Great Goddess, and so She became the purest archetype of The Divine Feminine in Astrology. Each month Moon and Sun join in the same sign of the zodiac at The New Moon to begin a Divine Dance, which lasts for 28-29 days, and then begins again. This magical merging holds the promise of a monthly new beginning, and working the phases of the Moon helps us make the most of this potential.
