This new moon is comin' in on Sunday, August 8th, 2021 in the zodiac sign of Leo. Rawr.
Leo is the zodiac sign best represented by the lion. This powerful, confident, showy sign is serving us some major ego boosts to kick off this month, and to be honest, I'm ready for it. How about you?
New moons are often times of change and embarking on new endeavors and the boost that the Leo vibe gives off makes this the ideal time to jump into something new. Leo's are known for being the center of attention, the life of the party, the cheese on the cracker...you get the idea. Allow that same creative, loud, self-assured energy carry you through this moon phase and into the next chapter of your life.
In other astrological news, Jupiter and Mercury are about to face off opposite each other, which means that any planning, brainstorming, or outlining that you had been doing is about to be amplified.
Embracing change and welcoming it into your life, rather than fighting it is going to be key here. Sure, it's easy to accept change when you're WANTING it. But how do you handle change when it hits you like a bus out of nowhere and you have to figure out what to do next?!
Keep in mind at this time that anything that is meant for you, is going to happen for you. This means, if you've been planning for a big adventure or new career path and it doesn't go exactly as planned, the universe just has something better in store for you.
Story Time: I recently put in my formal notice at my day job to fill my position as soon as possible so I can write full time! Super exciting, and super scary. The tarot card readings, signs from the universe, and gut feeling I had about jumping into this fully gave me the confidence I needed to move forward with my business plan. That gut feeling also told me that because I had been wanting to write full time so badly and everything was pushing me in that direction, that must mean that somewhere out there, someone was putting just as much energy into hoping for my day job to open up for them!
Fun fact: This new moon also falls in alignment with the Lions Gate Portal. This may sound familiar because it's come up in astrology in recent years. Well, baby, it's back! The combination of the new moon falling on this symbolic day creates the ultimate flow for wealth, luck, and abundance. It's considered to be the luckiest day this year! I'm not condoning gambling here but, maybe buy a scratch-off ticket that day.
Have the confidence to know it's all going to work out as it should. Things will also work out in the timeline that's meant to be. You can't rush things, and you can't change the timing of certain opportunities coming up for you. Go with your gut and go with confidence and do the damn thing!
