NEW MOON IN LEO
New Moon in Leo this Sunday, August 8 2021 is a fabulous time for setting goals focused on crucial parts of your life, such as romantic relationships or creative pursuits.
The new Moon in Leo is the beginning of a cycle. It is an opportunity to set an intention or goal for what you hope to grow in your life during this period. Some people believe that as the Moon rises, so does one’s intention/goal, and when the new Moon returns, it completes its cycle.
The new Moon offers its energy of intention to rid ourselves of the negative habits in our life. The point of the new moon in Leo aids us in ridding our minds and bodies of toxic thought patterns and eliminating toxic substances like excess alcohol, processed foods, caffeine and tobacco.
Setting up a practice is the essential part of ritual because it’s your commitment. Take a bath with sea salt is a ritual to clear any negative energy from your field. Burning sage in your space will make it sacred for ceremonies. Light the end of the sage and allow it to smoke. Use it around your body and in the room around you. You are clearing the mind with meditation, using music or just quieting the mind.
Practice Grounding: This is important anytime for staying connected to earth energy. Signs that you’re not grounded are anxiety, nervousness, and racing thoughts. We often forget to feel the earth under our feet. Simply using the breath to connect to earth energy can clear your mind and put things in perspective. Practice this before new moon rituals because it’s an excellent tool for new beginnings
New Moon Wishes Fulfilled: Make a list of what you’d like to bring into your life, and do not hold back here. Writing them down as intentions, you commit to doing your part to make them real. It’s vital to Dream Big! The new Moon in Leo is a moment to create what seems impossible, and creating the vision is step one to making it your reality, and you are co-creating since you’re opening to universal energies to set dreams in motion.
Desires of the Soul: Before the new Moon, give some thought to those longings that keep coming up. Use symbolic associations to boost your intentions.
Create a symbolic practice: Here’s where you get to be creative. If you intend to write a book or start a podcast to share your ideas with the world, write them on a piece of paper and offer it to the fire. To open to love, place rose quartz in a small pouch, along with the qualities you’re seeking in love and place it under your mattress.
Keeping Your Dreams Alive: A big part of success with new Moon intentions is what comes after. Find ways to keep them in the front of your awareness. Please put them in your phone calendar or sticky notes; after setting new moon intentions, use the new moon energy to boost your new goals every day.
The New Moon offers its energy of intention to rid ourselves of the negative habits in our life by setting clear intentions around romantic relationships, creative pursuits (artistic endeavours), fitness goals (weight loss), spiritual growth and more!
