This is a very powerful month for anyone with a Leo Sun, Moon, or Ascendent. The New Moon on 8/2 will be at about 11 degrees of Leo, with the Sun and Moon making a beautiful Trine to Saturn in Sagittarius. The emphasis this month is on the Fire Element. In Chinese medicine, the Fire Element is comprised of the Heart, Pericardium, Small Intestine, and Triple Heater meridians. It is about joy, inspiration, compassion, and love. The Fire Element asks us ” what inspires us”? This Trine to Saturn is an opportunity to reflect on what brings us joy, what we have passion for, or, what lights our fire.
Another powerful day is 8/13, where the Sun in Leo makes a Trine aspect to the Moon in Sagittarius. They will both form a Trine to Uranus in Aries, the planet of genius, originality, and freedom. This Grand Trine, 3 planets Trining each other, is in the Fire Element. This is a magical aspect, wonderful for new beginnings. Anyone with the Sun, Moon, or Ascendent in Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius will be benefited by this. The Sun continues this trine through to the 17th.
The Full Moon on the 18th is also a Lunar Eclipse. The Sun at 25 degrees of Leo will oppose the Moon at 25 degrees of Aquarius. Uranus plays a role in this Eclipse, as the Sun is still Trining it, which is very uplifting and liberating, while the Moon in Aquarius makes a lovely Sextile aspect to it. A good affirmation might be: ” I am inspired to release anything that does not serve me. I am liberated. I am set free. I am filled with a renewed passion for life. Love flows into my life, and I am filled with a joyful purpose.”
Let this time strengthen the fire within you, restoring your sense of your Divine Purpose. Connect to the things that bring joy, fun, and laughter into your life. Fire illuminates. Fire warms. Most importantly, Fire spreads. Be the spark for someone during this time. Leo is the sign of the Lion. Embody that noble principle, step into your life with the courage of the lion, with the heart of the lion… And roar. Have a blessed month. Judith
