The New Moon Of Leo

“Sometimes we need to be quiet and other times we need to speak up. This New Moon will teach us how to know the difference.” — @ArikXander

Hi Stargazers! 🌃🤩

There are three New Moons to every season. About every 33 months one of these seasons has four new moons instead of three. The third new moon within such a season is called “the black new moon” and the next will occur on August 19, 2020, in Leo.

Each and every New Moon offers us inspiration so that we may set an intention. Even if we have pre-existing intentions, we need to check in with ourselves to see if they are really aligned with what we want or if we are mimicking something we heard or saw somewhere.

This particular New Moon cycle is a time when we can receive energy to overcome disputes and fighting. It’s time to stop with the bickering, otherwise, the New Moon intentions will be weak, which is exactly what the Black New Moon energy wants us.

This will be a very challenging New Moon indeed. There is an emphasis on Aries where both Chiron and Mars are transiting. Wounds from war, whether past life, inner wars, or battles in relationships want to be healed, but only to the degree, we are willing to take responsibility for our part. Blaming others, as well as taking too much responsibility, will be a huge temptation. The opportunity here is to put an end to fighting others and take the battle within – claim independence from ego attachments and self-destructive traits. We can plant seeds to grow out of these old molds.

Of course, the universe will challenge each and every one of us with situations where we want to fight, so we need to stay aware and transcend the urge to fight at all costs.

So what happens when we argue? Well, it depends on how it’s going down.

If, and I say if to be kind, the ego is arguing, then it probably wants to be right. If people are debating to expand consciousness without any agenda to be right, then it’s a creative process.

Maybe people are fighting over property or perspective. Either way, bickering and quarrels create separation between people. It’s not very loving and it costs a lot of energy. Leo gives us a lot of light and energy to create and live in the world, but how we spend that energy is up to us. With this New Moon, we want to see where we are wasting our energy by fighting.

First, we need to accept that fighting isn’t always gross and belligerent. It can be silent and appear “peaceful”. In my opinion, there is nothing more violent than a do-gooder seeking praise and becoming passive-aggressive when not receiving it – it just looks different than two men fighting in the street.

Violence is violence.

The previous New Moon in Cancer gave us the energy to overcome our jealousy, and now we are bestowed with the power to connect to the universe by connecting with others. We will be required to see how important it is to work with and relate to others. The law of the golden rule, treat others as you wish to be treated, is reminding us that we are all made of the same substance.

But why is understanding this law easier said than done?

Because our inner Leo nature wants to be better than others, even if that means it’s better at being “worse than others”. The truth is that this attitude is poisonous on the spiritual path. It requires constant measuring and judgment. It also sucks a lot of our energy and strength.

The Question Of This Quest.

24 hours before and 24 hours after the New Moon is a cosmic window where subconscious content rises to the surface and asks us to deal with whatever we have suppressed so that it will not contaminate our efforts.

In DASH® Astrology, the New Moon is a time to receive energy for our quest! To access the quantum quest of Leo, we should open ourselves to the following question:

“Is my Strength a violation to what is holy and divine? What could this possibly mean?”


I will lead a meditation upon this in my New Moon Virtual Ritual.

Contemplate this question during the 48-hour New Moon window, and be open to any insights that come into your consciousness. It’s time for you to become the master of your reality and contribute positive energy to the cosmos.

Allow yourself to be inspired by this fiery New Moon in Leo. It’s activating our ability to choose our battles and to stand up for ourselves where we need to. Sometimes we need to be quiet and other times we need to speak up. This New Moon will teach us how to know the difference.

Ultimately, we will become inspired to do actions that establish a connection between people….even people we love to hate. Energy and strength are a gift that we don’t want to misuse.

Zodiacal City.

The Moon, which represents our vessel, will be empty and ready to receive everything it needs for its 29-day journey around the zodiacal city.

As it transits through each constellation neighborhood, it collects and gathers various gifts and lessons. Yet before it departs for its journey, there is a 48-hour window of preparation where it downloads everything necessary to make its journey a successful one. This is why I offer a guided New Moon meditation when we assure that we can receive everything we can to ensure a successful journey.

If you’re serious about moving on with the wonderful New Moon, you can order the guided meditation virtual ritual.

This New Moon will affect each of us specifically. Depending on where this New Moon is occurring for you will tell you where to put your focus. For easy insight, be sure to download my DASH® Astrology Moon Meditation Workbook to optimize the energies and imagine the life you intend.

I hope you have found this complimentary forecast useful and insightful. If you want to give back and support my work, it is happily and spiritually received here.

(BTW – New Moon’s are one of the most powerful time to donate or tithe as it multiplies the practice manyfold) Thank you for your donations, we always pray for those who donate to us.
