August New Moon in Leo – Big, Bright, Bold and Beautiful!
The New Moon in Leo will be at 8.36 degrees in Leo and signifies a time when the Sun and Moon will be in the sign of creativity, confidence, courage and play.
Around the time of the New Moon we begin to feel tied as the Waning phase encourages us to soothe, heal and surrender. This is a very important action to take in the cycle as what we do here recharges us ready for a new and exciting cycle ahead.
During the time of the new moon we set our intentions for the cycle ahead. These can be in the form of a list of goals and dream, wishes or things you would like to manifest. It doesn’t matter how you do this, what’s important is the positivity of your intentions.

What does it mean when the New Moon is in Leo?
The New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon meet in the sky causing the Moon to go dark when viewed from the Earth. This phase is all about new beginnings and planting the seeds for the future.
The sign of the zodiac in which the new moon occurs themes the whole of the lunar cycle (from New Moon to New Moon). Leo is ruled by the Sun which is associated with identity and life purpose. The lion is a symbol of courage, justice, power and strength. While the element of fire is bold and dramatic.
