If you've been following me.. you know how I love to sync my intention setting and manifestations with the Moon’s energy and cycle. I am a bit of a Moon phase junkie, if you will. Without further ado, let us chat about the New Moon in Leo!
WHAT SHE’S BRINGING ABOUT; NEW MOON IN LEO
Tomorrow, (Saturday August 11th, 2018) the new moon in Leo is a solar eclipse. The last eclipse of our eclipse season. Leo’s New Moon can bring about very loving emotions... yet these emotions prefer to be acknowledged. With Mercury’s retrograde, you may feel that your loving vibes are not being reciprocated or even just down right ignored. This could include romantic, platonic or parent-child relationships. Not to worry. With the approaching September Moon phases, validation is on the way. At this time accept what is and know that everyone gives and receives love and admiration differently.
Despite these shifts, it is a truly important time to shed the old, outdated thoughts and beliefs that are no longer serving you. Have confidence and with this, make room for the new. Sometimes, you do not need any approval to move forward but your own! Let us birth new intentions, ideas and manifestations. Let us connect with our inner Goddess Rising and tend to her deepest desires. Let us turn inward, listen and prepare. For a shift in perspective is sometimes all we need to lean past our fears and tend to our wishes and hopes. It's time to unleash the Devine Feminine in all of us!
NEW MOON CEREMONY; WHAT YOU’LL NEED
•fire proof bowl
•flower, tree, bush or veggies seeds of your choice
•sage or palo santo to cleanse yourself and you space
•crystals to keep your vibes high
•anything meaningful to you
First cleanse your space by burning sage or palo santo. Then, write down on one piece of paper, your deepest fears or any emotions that are holding you back. Allow yourself to picture these things for a short moment. In a fire proof bowl, burn the paper, essentially turning these emotions that no longer serve you to dust.
On another piece of paper, write down your intentions, wishes and desires. Again allow yourself to picture these things for a moment or two. Then head outside, dig a hole in the earth and plant your desires (along with some seeds if you wish) in the earth. Continue to water this area and take good care of it. Watch your desires bloom! How fun and appropriate! You can truly perform this ceremony at any time, but the new moon’s energy will amplify the experience.
