The Leo New Moon on July 28th comes to us with a sweet, creative, joyful energy perfect for creativity and connectivity.

It represents the perfect time to check in with where we are at in our lives and where we still want to make progress.

Are we moving in a direction that feels aligned with our deepest desires?

Are we making sure that each day is full of actions that reflect our intentions?

Are we living in positivity or are we going through the motions of old habits, and behaviors?

No matter if you feel content with your current situation or not, this New Moon in Leo is beaming with positive energy to support any changes you wish to make.

As New Moons are always a new beginning, an initiation point – this is the ideal time for planting new seeds and setting new intentions that you can then revisit in six months at the corresponding Full Moon in Leo.

Jupiter Trine and Leo passion

The fact that Jupiter is very active under this July New Moon is what brings such beautiful, positive energy.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance.

Together with the symbolism of Leo the lion, we have an extra dose of confidence and courage to step into our most empowered selves.

Leo is a fire sign full of passion, pride, courage, and the strength and self-esteem to shine bright.

It infuses all of us with the desire to have fun, express ourselves freely and vibrate with a high, positive frequency in all that we do.

Leo shows us that we can be the rulers of our own world.

We get to shine as heart-centered leaders, unashamedly being our most authentic selves and taking up space with our creativity, love, joy, and passion.

We can tap into this fiery and passionate, inspired energy to support our dreams and desires.

Even if you are already feeling super inspired and excited about life, this New Moon will help to cement those feelings and keep you on track to be the best, bold and brightest version of yourself.

You may not realize where you are being held back in even the smallest of ways, everything you shed and release now will support you in your alignment to your highest self.

The New Moon will also guide us to connect more with our heart space and the energy that radiates from that center.

A Quick Ritual to Connect to your Heart Space

To really maximize your connection with all this lovely New Moon energy you can do this ritual as many times as you like throughout the day.

Think about what you wish to expand in your life right now.

Close your eyes and take some deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling out.

Now place your hand (any hand) over your heart.

Try to let your mind become still and free of intrusive thoughts by simply noticing them and letting them go.

Now ask your heart what does it most need from you right now?

Allow yourself to be very open to any feeling, emotion, or message that comes to you.

Don’t overthink this or start to question yourself! Don’t analyze it.

You might not even be able to put your answer into words. Maybe it’s something you just intuit.

A feeling for more peace, a desire to speak your truth, or to communicate better. A need to be seen.

Just feel what arises for you and trust the message you receive.

This ritual is a beautiful way to check in with yourself multiple times throughout the days, weeks, or months ahead, not just during this New Moon.

In fact, I recommend making it a normal part of your life.

The more we can connect to what our hearts are telling us, the more we will align with our true destinies. Your heart is the authentic you.

You will find that this ritual of connecting to your heart space will also help you to surrender your desires to the Universe.

Whatever manifestations you desire, whatever intentions you are setting, let them go out into the Universe to be received with love.

Allow yourself to believe in your perfect outcome and visualize it happening.

New Moon energy is so powerful when you know how to connect with it properly.

You can truly kickstart your life when you harness this harmonious, creative energy to inspire you.

If you don’t like something about your life, use this transformational energy to make a change.

But be proactive and hold yourself accountable for the day-to-day tasks you choose to focus on.

Start creating the life you actually want to be living, nobody else is going to do it for you.

But you will always have the support of the Universe and your own intuition through your heart space, gently guiding you forward.

Ultimately the message contained in the energy of this Leo New Moon is to connect with the infinite source of love and creativity available to us at all times.

“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become.” – Steve Jobs
