The month of July began with a new moon; and now, as we close out the month, we herald a second July new moon. On July 1st, we had the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Cancer which also happened to the third consecutive eclipse, having had two eclipses in June; now, on July 30th, we have the New Moon in Leo. New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This new moon highlights Leo qualities (willful, charismatic, courageous, prideful, confident) and 5th house themes (love, pleasure, creative projects, children).
Leo is natively ruled by the Sun, the largest body in our solar system and the object that other celestial bodies orbit around. It's only appropriate that Leo loves attention :) This Leo-New Moon phase is an ideal period to initiate, create, renew. Express your true and whole self.
The Leo-New Moon (blending of heart & soul) square Jupiter (expansion) and sextile Saturn (restriction). Once again the new moon links to Saturn.
Saturn is Mr. Reality. With our renewals (new moons), he's been injecting his sobering influence on us.
His job to teach us and help us become improved versions of our selves by encouraging us (for those willing to learn) or forcing us (for those unwilling to learn) to meet and rise above the challenges we face.
This Leo-New Moon (blending of heart & soul) links up to both Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (restriction). Jupiter represents growth, expansion, opportunities, hope, luck, and blessings. Even a little effort (Saturn) with the intent to change/renew (new moon) can have big results (Jupiter).
Hopefully, we'll be brave (Leo) and optimistic (Jupiter) enough to arm ourselves with our reality (Saturn) and start something/start over (new moon phase).
Those born within 3 days of April 27 or July 30 may feel the effects of this new moon stronger than most.
