At this point, it’s pretty much universally agreed that 2020 has been a busy year. You’ve been through some of the most life-changing and transformative transits, so congratulate yourself for not only surviving but also for proving how resilient you are.
While you’re not completely out of the woods just yet, the August 2020 New Moon will be the best for Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and they certainly deserve it. Seriously, get excited, because the astrology surrounding this New Moon is magnificent; so beautiful, in fact, that it proves that there will always be pockets of beauty even in the strangest times.
On the one hand, this New Moon takes place in a creative, expressive, romantic, and passionate Leo. For Leo, life is about living it to the fullest, enjoying the moment, and having fun. It really doesn’t have to be more complicated than that. It’s also about honoring your best qualities and pampering yourself.
May this New Moon be the start of an even deeper and more fun relationship with yourself. Life is not meant to be taken so seriously. Taking place on August 18 at 10:41 p.m. ET, this New Moon will feel very uplifting. It forms a trine with Mars, helping you aim for greatness and remind yourself that you deserve all of your success.
It also forms a sextile with the North Node, encouraging you to embrace your potential and overcome any fear that may be in your way. Venus, the planet of love, will even form a sextile with eccentric and progressive Uranus, encouraging a beautiful new start in your relationships. Here’s why fire signs will shine under this New Moon:
You unleash your talent, your creativity, and your joy. This New Moon will be a reminder that life is for living, Aries. Sometimes you might let the worries and anxieties convince you that so much is wrong.
However, if you stop, look around, and focus on the present moment, you will find that you have everything you need. Let this New Moon show you that the world is a playground meant to be played.
There is a little child who still lives in you; a little child who wants to be released for playtime. Give yourself permission to have fun, because you don’t need anyone’s permission other than your own.
Taking place in your first house of self, this New Moon is all about embracing a deeper trust, recognizing who you are, refining your constantly changing and evolving identity.
While the past is always a part of who you are, it will never dictate who you become or where you go. You are Leo, the zodiac sign of self-expression, passion, and childlike wonder. Remember this.
Do you psych yourself out before you have even given it a chance? Put aside your tendencies to overthink and embrace the idea that the more spontaneous option may be your best bet.
Sometimes sticking too tightly to a plan limits your growth and inhibits possibilities. Sometimes you have to give yourself some freedom. Trust that if you jump, the universe will always catch you.
