AUGUST 16, 2023
Dear Friends,
Time to shine! This is all about your heart and what you love to be and do. This is all about you. What your interests are and what has come from you. What is an extension of you. At this New Moon you set your intentions for all that you love and care about. Times are changing and you need to upgrade your goals to continue on the path you love. Venus has been in Leo since June 5th pointing out a few things. Where do you stand with what you love and care about? You need to reconnect with what makes you special and show it. Venus goes direct on September 3rd then remains in Leo until October 8th. Where have you lost yourself? Time to reconnect and start working on it. Venus is giving us plenty of time as she remains in Leo to help us shine.

A NEW MOON will occur on AUGUST 16, 2023 at 5:37 AM EDT 23 degrees LEO 17 minutes.

This is the sign of integrity, recognition, romance, affection, creativity, and play. When this sign is emphasized, we show kindness and generosity to others. We fall in love and put our heart into whatever we are doing. Time for ambition, independence, and leadership. People may refuse to recognize their limitations under this influence. This sign can be known for its overly dramatic behavior. It rules the heart and the upper spine.
This is the most dramatic of all the twelve signs. The ego development of Leo is powerful. It can be used to overpower others in an attempt to prove your importance; or, it can be directed toward achieving a purposeful goal.
Where Leo is in your chart is where you have the power to create, to make things happen by using your will. Leo is a fixed, determined, fire, goal-oriented sign; all the ingredients needed for success.

THE DECANATE: ARIES The sign of the pioneer and new beginnings. Springtime. Fire signs are goal oriented, and concerned with future opportunities. Often described as inspirational, fire signs, more than all others, show where you need goals. Aries never forgets the fact that they were born to lead the way. Born directors and organizers. This sign represents the need to become a more well-defined individual. The house Aries is on in your chart shows where instinctual activity, freely operating, gives you the opportunity to become more conscious to add to your development as a separate entity. This sign rules the head.

The New Moon in Leo once a year is a time to set your intentions for love and creativity. Venus is retrograde in Leo helping us take a deeper look at what is valuable to us. Beauty may be part of this energy. The Sun in Leo is with the Venus retrograde emphasizing how we take care of ourselves. Jupiter is in Taurus joined with Uranus. Jupiter brings abundance and in Taurus it is all about having what we need to be secure. Uranus is change. Finding what we need in a new and better way. To be resourceful! This Leo New Moon at 23 degrees Leo is square to Uranus at 23 degrees Taurus. A change is necessary. What can we afford? Mercury is with Mars in Virgo letting us know the work to be done. Mercury and Mars in Virgo are very favorable to Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus. What we need is there we just need to look at it in a different way.

This is a symbol of the complete self-obsession which human individuality may exhibit, emphasized here on the side of an in-sensitiveness to every exaction or reward of the world. Implicit in the reversed symbolism are the values of an inner refining of self and a need to use and exalt rather than hoard the physical and psychological possessions of the being. Paradoxically enough the bringing of reality to center is a development and sharing of its potentialities. The keyword is IMPERTURBABILITY. When positive, the degree is an ease of outer accomplishment thanks to the inner intensification and increasing sensibility, and when negative, perverse satisfaction in a neglect of self.
