New Moon Karma
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
Yesterday (Saturday) the Sun moved from Cancer to Leo. Early this morning (Sunday) the Moon also moved from Cancer to Leo to then form a new Moon in Leo at 05:46 AM EDT.
New Moons represent new beginnings, an opportunity to establish new goals in the house in your horoscope associated with the sign of the New Moon. In this case, it’s Leo.
With the New Moon in the fire-sign Leo, this coming month is a good to practice the positive qualities associated with Leo: loving, creative, expressive, dramatic, self-assured, honorable, bold, and the leader, showman, and King/Queen.
Keep in mind that although your sun sign may not be Leo, Leo may otherwise be significant in your horoscope.
This is also a good time to review the karma related to Leo from the excerpt below which is from one of my inexpensive computerized astrology reports you can order by clicking the “Services” tab at the top of my website.
“Your path of soul development in this lifetime revolves around developing your awareness of yourself as a distinct, unique individual. It is not enough for you to simply be who and what you are, you must radiate your inner essence outwardly, express it, bring it forth in a creative way. Although ultimately your goal is self-discovery and self-recognition, you initially have a profound need to make an impression on others and to be recognized and appreciated by the world.
In many ways, you are like the eager child who, delighted with the discovery of a new power or accomplishment, demands of all and sundry "See ME! Look what I can do!". Of course, you do this in subtle ways (usually!). Nevertheless, the joy of self-discovery and self-expression, and the yearning for applause and affirmation is very much present in you. Put simply, you tend to be rather fascinated with yourself. Your tendency to dramatize or exaggerate and your desire to be the center of attention comes from a need to project yourself into the world to see yourself and what makes you special.
However, your acute awareness of yourself as an individual can also lead to an excessive, constant self-consciousness which may inhibit your free flow of self-expression. You may feel that you are always on stage and must perform or have to be the best because you are being watched (at least by yourself!). And you can be incredibly self-centered at times, blind to other people's realities and to the larger realm of life which does not revolve around you.
It is imperative for you to find an area in which you can excel and shine and truly make a significant, personal contribution which matches your inner sense of nobleness. You must have a domain, one which is yours alone to shape and fashion according to your inner dictates. Unless you are acting from your heart, from your core, you are not fulfilling your destiny. Thus, you will resist imitating and being dictated to by others, for your task is to find your inner light and radiate it. While young you are apt to have heroes and images of greatness in whatever form most resonates with your heart. Ultimately you must become your own hero.
The potential downfall for you (in terms of spiritual growth) is becoming overly preoccupied with the more superficial aspects of your ego, your sense of pride and personal importance. At your worst, you feel threatened by others' original, creative expression or their successes and are unable to give them the acclaim and recognition they have earned. It is as if no one else exists in their light, except as extensions of yourself, minor characters in a play which stars you.
But at your best you affirm not only your worth and specialness, you also warmly encourage other people's creative talents and the blossoming of their potentials and greatness. You cherish individuality and creativity in other people and nurture that spark wherever you find it. Once free from the great allure of and interest in your ego, you begin to fall in love with the creative process itself and to experience a great joy in being a part of life expressing itself, not only through you but through others' lives as well.”
