New Moon 8 degrees Leo at 8:12pm July 31. Mercury stations direct in Cancer (23o 57″) on July 31, 7:58 pm PDT.
With this New Moon we have the opportunity to integrate the awakenings and illuminations we reaped with the recent Eclipses. If we are open, we may also begin to see the beauty and possibilities emerging from whatever changes have unfolded, and get ready to move forward.
“The new moon in Leo offers us a fresh start. After the downpour of emotional debris we waded through during July’s eclipse season, this new moon is priming us to party. With some of the most exuberant, fortunate, and blessed astrology of the year, this lunar cycle is full of astrological signatures for us to benefit from and work with.
At the same time as this new moon occurs, Mercury stations direct, emphasizing the refreshing feeling of this astrology and helping us move our lives along or spend quality time enjoying it. With Jupiter, Goddess of Great Bounty, also stationing direct, the gifts of Leo Season flow spontaneously and in great surplus.” (excerpted from Chani Nicholas)
“I cleanse myself with light and loving energy. My defenses now come down. The guards and fears that have surrounded me for so long now melt to the ground. I am open and I am safe. I am radiating pure heart energy. I am cleansed. I am love.”
