August 8th ushers in the last New Moon of the summer cycle and the spotlight is on you during these hot sultry summer days. Summer is the time to let your inner fire glow & sparkle-it is time to shine and no sign shines like Leo-the sun is totally at home with the lion. Leo season brings creativity, romance, and self-realization to life.
Leo is usually all about the drama and taking charge (especially during a full moon) but, on the New Moon, well, the lion feels a need to think things through a bit more. The last Cancer moon was filled with concerns of safety in self and home…adjusting to a new way of life. The Leo moon is there to give us the confidence to leave the old/past behind and move ahead on our new path with its strong vibes of courage and flair. (Remember, you can tap into New Moon energy 3 days before and 3 days after the actual New Moon).
Ordinarily, New Moons are the best time to manifest and set goals or plant the seeds for the weeks ahead. But, my loves, this moon will be way, way different, because…major event here…It is also lining up with the Lion’s Gate Portal also happening on August 8th. The Portal is the name for the celestial occurrence that has Sirius rising in the sky during Leo season. Sirius is the brightest star of the night sky and is considered a symbol of spiritual awareness. Rising in tandem with the New Moon, and especially on the exact same day 8/8, makes this moon one of the most powerful for manifestation in any year. Think of this like powering up, a strong, intense boost for bringing your dreams into reality. This is the time to clearly think about what you really want, write down your intentions and open the door in your mind to that high vibrational energy needed to manifest what you truly desire and need. Imagine the rise in our collective consciousness if we all did that?
And with that in mind lets prepare for newMOONness ritual, my goddesses.
Gather: Paper, pencil, jar, candles, and matches or lighter
Light a candle, center yourself and focus on letting go of the chatter in your mind. Think about what you want to release, and what you want to call in. Now take the paper and write down all the things you’d like to bring into your life over the next month. Place paper in a jar with dried roses, lavender & crystals and set outside to soak up the energy. Next day, bring in the jar and place it somewhere you can see it. A month from now look over your list and reflect.
If you have been longing for a major shift in your life, this astral energy will move you forward. The best is yet to come! I know it and I feel it. Blessed New Moon Happiness!!!
