We're about to start a new cycle here with this New Moon falling on the Leo/Aquarius axis! Leo is the ruler of the 5th house and ruled by the Sun. The 5th house is where we find our jollies; creation, procreation and recreation!! So, namely our artistic inspired creative talents; how we approach romance, courtship, and sex (or making babies, since 5th house is also for children!); sports and games, gambling and speculation. basically, the house of fun! Aquarius is traditionally ruled by Saturn and it's modern ruler Uranus, and is ruler over the 11th house. The 11th house is where we find our ideals, humanity and community. These are the ideals you seek to live by or achieve; your hopes, desires, dreams, and your humanitarian concerns. It's how you establish your individuality and freedom; and maybe how you break the rules! But also how you relate to friends and groups of people who share your ideals.
Now remember, the Sun and Moon are the 2 most important "planets" in your chart. Technically they aren't planets, but are luminaries, since they give off light! The Sun represents our emotional security or insecurities, temperament and attachments. The Moon is our feelings and our perception of emotions. When the Sun and Moon are activated together, it creates an intense energy flow between the Sun (consciousness) and the Moon (feelings).
So what does this mean for this New Moon? Well, these Leoine energies are giving us that feeling like our inner child, or Fetch in the Feri world, wants to come out and play!! Leo energy is ambitious, outgoing, even royal. You want it your way and you want it NOW! And while Leo's energy can somewhat be self centered.. Aquarius is more about them. So you can see, we might need to be a little careful in the way we express ourselves or what we want to say might not come out quite right to others!
Throughout the Moon's cycles, there is a death and rebirth happening. During the New Moon we let our instincts lead us. While in Leo, focus will be on making time for play, creative projects, reclaiming personal power; celebrating your uniqueness, undertaking an adventure and risks, stepping into more leadership, and enjoying passionate love and friendship. This New Moon with it's Leo/Aquarius influence will help us push ourselves to realize that we can only achieve what we set ourselves out for!!
