Over the next two weeks we will feast in the senses of our own indulgences. Kings and Queens indeed! Relationships, spending, eating, pampering—we will need it all. We are ready to feast on our innermost desires! This is a need to follow our heart, entertain our ego and just live in all of our magical, physical splendor. This influence brings the lover that belongs to another, the purchase that brings us up to date with society, the reveling of contentment be it right or wrong. It is throwing caution to the wind in order to have that one moment of liveliness! This theme is underlined by Uranus trine to this New Moon, adding surprises and impulsive decisions to the mix. Sudden communication, action and events will introduce some old themes back into our lives.
Yes, these are OLD themes. I say this because Venus retrograde is conjunct this New Moon in Leo and it seems we just can’t get enough of reminiscing. We will catch up with those we haven’t seen in a while, revisit old places, and rekindle old loves. Yes, turn your 80’s love songs on---we are headed there NOW!
Jupiter, having just moved into Virgo is getting ready to add some new opportunities, so it seems this New Moon is really like the stage being set in preparation. Unfortunately, Mercury is also in Virgo in an opposition to Neptune, which makes it seem to me that there is a great amount of deception, hidden conversations, or just unknown facts that haven't surfaced.
For the majority of us, we may feel high passion in our relationships with others, or in some type of reconnection. Perhaps we aren’t willing to yet clarify all of the details of our lives with others. It is also possible that in dealing with those we haven’t seen in a while, we may feel vulnerable about our accomplishments since we have last seen them.
For many, even current relationships will be up for revision. All of a sudden your partner may begin to exhibit a lot of disruptive behavior, or you feel as if their flaws are shining in the light of this new moon plus two weeks. There may also be financial problems associated with this new moon and information surrounding debt or income, is just not there.
On the 29th, a Full Moon in Pisces will occur, which will seemingly finalize or signify a turning point related to relationships and finances. Pisces rules the 2nd of “the people”, and with its Neptune conjunction opposite Jupiter, I can only guess that this New Moon in Leo on the 14th will set off a high spending, overindulgent period, that will have repercussions once September rolls around.
Enjoy this bold New Moon! Love the best you can but I caution you not to overextend yourself as any reconnections may not occur with perfect vision. Please, for goodness sake, do not overspend! This New Moon setup is like a one night stand---come September you will be wondering what in the world you were thinking. Once the Venus retrograde ends in September, then you can begin to move forward. However, major spending should at least wait until late October once Venus moves out of the shadow for the best results.
I hope that you will follow your heart at this New Moon, dear Friends. Life is made up by the quality of moments, for sure, soI do have to admit, living for the moment has its perks.
