leo new moonTonight’s New Moon in Leo (August 18th, 10:42pm eastern), challenges you to have the courage to be yourself, shine your light and follow the truth of your heart.

In the bigger context of this time – the fast track to the Age of Aquarius – cultivating and expressing the Leo part of ourselves is crucial for calling in the highest potential future.

Leo is the sign opposite Aquarius, and without Leo – the heart, LOVE, our divine light, our individuality and creativity – we get the dystopian version of the Age of Aquarius.

Dystopian Aquarius looks like: the merging of humans and AI, a world dominated by machines, the suppression (masking) of individuality, herd mentality, social engineering and social control… (Sound familiar?)

The sole determinant of which version of the Age of Aquarius we move into – totalitarian surveillance state or the mass awakening and liberation of humanity – is consciousness. How do we evolve into higher consciousness? Through the heart, the most powerful organ of the body and the true center of human perception.

The heart connects us with the universal field of intelligence, the knowing that we are all one. Unless our brains and nervous system (Aquarius) are connected with the heart (Leo), we can’t perceive our interconnectedness.

FEAR, the primary tool of the control system, shuts down the heart, and we fall under the spell of the separate self. Gratitude, appreciation and love bring us back into our hearts, where we remember the truth that we are all one, and then send that frequency of oneness into the collective field.

At this Leo New Moon, our assignment is to drop into our heart’s wisdom and take action based on that truth. To counter the forces of oppression, we’re called to shine our light, commit to our passion and joy, and know ourselves as divine beings with the power to create “the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible” (Charles Eisenstein).

For more insight into what this New Moon means for YOU, find the house in your birth chart that contains 26 degrees of Leo. The areas of life signified by that house are where you’re invited to:

  • clarify your heart’s true desires;
  • commit to your passion and creativity;
  • strengthen self-love and self-approval;
  • plant a seed for amplifying your creative light.
