This Saturday (aka tomorrow) is not your average Saturday. Let’s just say it’s a BIG day in the the cosmos. To start, there’s a new moon, which usually signifies a time for reflecting, cleansing your energy and starting fresh. This new moon also happens to be a super moon, which just intensifies the call for change. If that wasn’t enough, there will also be a partial solar eclipse, which means you can basically consider this a new era. And lastly (as if we could ever forget), Mercury is still in retrograde. This means the new moon will bring a welcome change: a resurgence in energy to combat the stagnant, slow pull of Mercury in retrograde that we’ve all been experiencing.
This month, the new moon falls in Leo. If you didn’t already know, Leos are known for their pride, self-acceptance and confidence. Their ruling “planet” is actually the sun, which suggests that in a Leo’s world, everything revolves around them. This can be interpreted in two ways. The first is that Leos are bright shining stars who never let others dim their confidence. The second is that they can be a bit vain. These are qualities to consider when the new moon is in Leo—all signs will feel compelled to revel in themselves a bit—to embrace who they are and let the world know and really celebrate their accomplishments. And you totally should do this, just make sure you rein it back when you need to. Leo season is also a time when romance and creativity surges, so if you have a creative project that’s slowed down recently, this is the time to pick it up. Romance-wise, things are about to get spicy—perfect timing for the height of summer. Leo season is also prime time for adventure and travelling, so if you’ve been debating a weekend getaway, here’s your sign to book it. Remember, the new moon is still at work here, so change is inevitable and can actually be a very welcome thing when it comes to relationships, creativity, and travel.
Leo really is the perfect sign to embody the last hurrah of the summer. So take some advice from the stars and moon and bask in all your glory, before we move into Virgo territory.
