How will New Moon August affect us?

On August 19, the New Moon in Leo is conjoined with Mercury and trine, it’s therefore well connected to Mars in Aries. With two important fire signs dominating the night sky, your passionate entrepreneurial spirit will be increased tenfold and so will your taste for risk taking. Mercury in Leo synthesizes and Mars in Aries urges you to act. Your reflexes are excellent and your reactions are perfectly adequate.

It should be noted, however, that Saturn is in a staggered position in comparison to the New Moon (and Square on Mars). This configuration will slow down your tremendous momentum that’s not necessarily a negative thing. Saturn will force you to reflect before acting and will ensure you approach projects with a mature attitude.


In short, this New Moon is like a springboard, it will push us to launch ourselves into individual initiatives that will help us show people what we are made of. Displaying our talents will help us stand out and move along our paths.

Let us note that Pluto also comes into play in this New Moon Leo sky. Pluto’s inclusion in this configuration will mean our desires and passion will come together and help us develop new ambitions. Our dreams seem to have been put on hold for a period due to the Coronavirus crisis and our anxiety is likely to have increased. You'll be pleased to know that this lunar event will help us rediscover a carefree attitude and this will propel us towards success and achievements in the future.
