After 6 months of painfully slow astrology, we finally have a gorgeous new moon that will rev things up for the rest of 2014. The new moon in Leo is always an art and romance flashpoint. But this one’s getting cozy with Jupiter, so you can expect any potential love situations or new creative ventures to take off like roman candles. It’s also getting a square from Mars freshly in Scorpio, which acts as rocket fuel: it’s powerful, but highly combustible. Make sure you stick to a clearly defined strategy and you’ll be golden.
Think of the 6 of Wands in the tarot, riding in the victory parade, self-assured and loving the limelight. Under this new moon, you know your worth and own it. And if you’ve been down on yourself? This new moon is going to reawaken your mojo!
In the spirit of keeping things fresh, I decided to do a tarot spread for all of you this time around! Since Jupiter (the major player here) is the planet of good fortune, my question was:
What can we do to get lucky under the new moon in Leo ?
(Take that how you will. Ahem. After all, Leo is the sign of romance!)
Here’s what I got:
If you’ve been considering a bold move, now is the time to make it. Don’t be a shrinking violet. Break with the status quo. Be free, have fun, and don’t be afraid to lose control. Trust yourself. You’ve got this.
2 of Cups
Ah, yes. It’s time to explore a new attraction or embark on a fresh creative project. Whatever it may be, give it your full devotion. Adore your muse. Indulge in the luxury that is falling in love, whether with a partner or with your art.
This card surprised me, because this new moon is all about fun and levity and this card usually means deep inner work in my readings. But who says the two have to be mutually exclusive? Use this energy as an opportunity to explore and meditate on what you truly desire. Hint: Danielle LaPorte can help with this. Get your journals ready!
The new moon is at 8:42 PM EST. Don’t forget to light a candle and write your abundance check!
