Void until 8:59pm PDT*, the technically crescent Leo moon begins anew, however disconnected the voided course or the recent eclipsed energies may still be, boldly scouring every last indignity of self-expression in an effort to reclaim, from what was once shadowed and hidden, a dignified and illuminated usefulness—to celebrate a renewed sense of Self. But also in preparation for tomorrow’s Virgoan moon.
However, today… today is a day to relax, to play, and to gather with friends and loved ones, to love, to celebrate, and, ultimately, to stop taking yourself so seriously.
I’d like to point out to you here that Leo governs the fifth house, governing activities such as play, romantic pursuit, leisure, children, artistic endeavor, celebration, and gambling, which is why it’s also infamously the house of risk. Really, all of these are risky in their own ways. By embracing any of these fifth house pursuits you are taking a risk with—and Leo rules this, as well—your heart——do it anyway. All fifth house things involve joy, and these make the heart grow fond, and strong, and happy.
Notice, too, that all fifth house pursuits lack a certain seriousness, or, practicality, but make up for this in interest, and when you’re interested——you’re invested. Yet, without the seriousness, you’re free to express yourself, well… freely, and genuinely. As you are.
Despite the overall energies remaining mostly low, you have reached the dawn of a new day—you can use your renewed and revived energies in any way you like, of course——but do try to enjoy these with love, by sharing, and by sharing yourself with someone, however risky it may feel to you now.
A crescent moon is a moon of setting new intentions—yet, again, today’s moon is void of course, so how celestially appropriate for you to simply enjoy the day, in very healthy, happy Leo ways. There is no need to begin anything new just yet, much less intend it.
Perhaps setting intentions would be too easy a way to take yourself too seriously?
Perhaps the heavens know this…
And after all, setting practical, achievable, time efficient goals are much more Virgo’s thing—something to do tomorrow.
I also want to mention that I was blessed with countless examples of confessions, stories and happenstanced glimpses of social media yesterday celebrating, in true Leo fashion— renewal, new offerings, things once lost now found, and new pathways of possibility that were not previously there… it wasn’t all doom and gloom. This could’ve been the residual Cancerian energies having more of an impact for some of you, and others, the Leonine. But at the end of the day, not unlike twilight to dawn—endings are always opportunities for beginnings.
This cartoon I found yesterday made me think of the current energies occurring… Crazy, perhaps. Do it anyway.
