Each lunar cycle, we're reborn. We have a fantastic opportunity to align with our intentions during the New Moon and integrate our experiences from the last cycle into our lives. This work rejuvenates our souls, so we are ready to dive back in with the beginning of a new cycle. We're called to consciously clear away any obstructions to our dreams, get clear on our intentions, and ask for divine assistance in making them a reality. This time is incredibly meditative and introspective. It's the perfect time of the lunar cycle to journal, meditate, create art, and connect with your inner and spiritual self. It is also an excellent time to release ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and ways of being that no longer serve us on our path.
This New Moon is in the sign of Leo. When the Moon is in Leo, it's an excellent time to focus on goals and intentions that mesh well with Leo's energy. For example, it's an amazing time to concentrate on ways to enhance our hobbies and creative endeavors, spice up our romantic lives, and maybe most importantly, focusing on building up our self-confidence and developing a healthy sense of pride in ourselves. This New Moon is the perfect time for indulging in Leo Season's energy by giving yourself the royal treatment re: self-care. Additionally, focusing on any passion projects you've yet to start will honor Leo's energy during this moon cycle. Leo aims to teach us the importance of assuming responsibility in our lives, giving of ourselves generously to others, and taking pride in our souls' uniqueness.
This New Moon is the perfect time to meditate upon Leo energy, and how it shows up in your life. Leo is an incredibly expressive fire sign, which can be described as proud, generous, warm, authoritative, caring, noble, and open to life. Where in your life can you start to cultivate these energies more fully? How could you improve your life by incorporating some of these things into your personality? When setting your intentions for this New Moon, take into consideration the lessons of this sign. Leo energy calls you to improve in these areas, to express your inner-child, and express yourself creatively without shame or restriction.

Welcome to the second New Moon in Cancer this year! *yayyyy…..tears*
This New Moon in Cancer is the first that hasn’t been an eclipse since 2017! While this makes it a more “regular” New Moon, it does have a tight opposition to Saturn, which still makes its energy a little challenging to work with. During this new Moon, you may feel really fired up to start super fresh due to some mars/mercury influences happening right now, but this New Moon is very moody and even melancholic. It has a “serious” vibe and almost “heavy” energy that may feel somewhat restrictive. It wants us to honor the limits we have to work within and to work with patience, determination, and persistence towards our goals.
