As high point in arguably the most underwhelming Leo season in the history of its high glam observation, the mewing new moon is a welcome reset and recalibration. As we continue to tread the path of global and internal revolution, our learning is tethered to our personal power and too its place in our communities and our world.


Leo season always reminds us that we are lionhearted, our lives rising and falling in direct proportion to our courage. A curious virtue, courage is tucked into all of our hearts for just the moments we desperately need it. Courage is a converter, the strength that lies within us to face our fear and eventually conquer it, claiming our peculiar place in the pride.


Just prior to the new moon, the sun squares Uranus to pepper the prelude with wake up calls and unholy realisations. Change is the Uranian frequency, future focused and sustainably ongoing. Anticipate drama and use it to fuel your tipping and turning points. Look for out of the box solution and cultivate the tangents beyond the screaming mainframe. Carve new paths to the new moon.


Leo’s new beginning may be marked more quietly than usual, as the seasonal wheel turns in tandem. It will still be charged by Uranian lightning. This new moon calls as ever to our innate sovereignty and asks us to reset our internal relationship to anything that holds power over us. Leo rules our heart space, the generative centrepoint of our existence. Connect to yours and be guided beyond any old limits. Marry your intentions to your future, not your past.
