New Moon in Leo

“ A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe.”
― Rumi

New Moon In Leo

This New Moon on Lammas has Leo’s energy and enthusiasm to boost you into the new. With both the sun and moon dancing together today its a powerful time for alchemical change with optimism for your own knowing and abilities to transcend, integrate and walk forward.

This lunar month invites you to identify how we play small, diminishing your light in an attempt to not attract negative attention. Its a time to give space to your Vision, to trust yourself and the deepest whispers of intuition that rise from the depth of the Mothers Womb. Its a time to dance wholeness into creation through the creative pulse that moves through you in all areas of your life.

With the need to rest and replenish your energy on the New Moon - also consciously work with the New Moon sheet to energise and support your intentions over this lunar month. Give yourself the space to do this. This is as act of nourishment for you, from that all else will get served.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us. 

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God.”

Marianne Williamson



  • Take a little time to reflect the night before the new moon. Get in touch with the ‘feeling’ qualities of learnings that you have bought to conscious awareness since the last full moon. Write them down in your Journal or on an A4 sheet to keep with your New Moon Worksheet.

  • Download and print off your worksheet ready for the day of the New Moon. If you can work with the most powerful window of the New Moon that is within 8 hours of the exact time of the New Moon on Thursday 1st August at 4.11AM GMT



The New Moon has a more inward feel - it is a void of potentiality with the quality of emptiness. Nothing has certainty, all is opened to the influx of possibility yet to be made manifest.

It is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the lunar month cycle. In this dark fertile ground, you can plant the seeds of your deepest heartfelt desires, consciously focusing your Whole Being of mind-body-spirit on the ‘feeling’ qualities of your rising desires.

Its a time to call on depths of healing, to open to a fresh start, a new phase and a time to celebrate new beginnings. You can reflect on the learnings in decisions, experiences and rejuvenate yourself in a fresh clean flow of energy. The new moons purifying energy aids reflection and re-orientation to your highest aspirations and your deepest core values. Its your symbolic ‘second chance’ that is given over and over again as an impulse of higher creativity.


New Moons are the beginning of the 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is sitting directly between the Earth and the Sun.  Because the side of the moon that is illuminated is facing away from you, the moon is not visible at all to you. The Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon which you never see and this allows you to access deeper levels in the unconscious.

Both the Moon and the Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon… giving an expanded boost or concentration of the energy.

The SUN representing your ‘outer-world’, your identify, personality, your sense of self.  It represents how you ‘shine your light’ out into the world. The present moment, your yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers you strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul. 

The MOON represents your ‘inner world’, your hidden emotions, desires, the shadow-self, fears/worries and your dreams.  It represents your feelings, unconscious beliefs, the past and your yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers you the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express your essence.
