When is the 2021 Leo New Moon?
Hello there, Earthlings! On August 8th, at 6:50am PDT, the Leo New Moon makes its grand arrival on GIANT puddy tat paws! In order for us to assert our authority, the roar of this New Moon is rattling our bones and bringing out all of our self-worth concerns. Be brave, for when you choose your strength, you choose life.
Our magnificent, potent Sun, which unapologetically radiates light for all of us, rules Leo. The Sun simply beams, with no reservations about how huge, broad, and bright it is. The adage for Leo is to simply show up and shine. The urge to show up is increased by the fact that the new moon in the sign of the jungle king is trine to Saturn, the planet of stability and boundaries, and square Uranus, the planet of the unexpected.
Many of us have been hiding like scared kittens over the past few years due to more than typical amounts of turbulence, fear, and uncertainty. This New Moon is come to ask our lion hearts to guide us.
During this New Moon window, ask yourself these questions and provide a brave response;
What do you do out of obligation that you don’t enjoy?
2) What limiting fear are you allowing to repeatedly play in your head?
What area of your life has grown way too serious and could use some humor?
Your New Moon homework is to show up with your written responses to these questions. Get out of tasks that aren’t bringing you light with grace. Of course, you must perform the daily responsibilities necessary to sustain life; otherwise, Saturn might have something to say about it. But what commitment do you have that would put out your fire? Adjust that.
Put your huge, courageous lion on your fears and make him or her hold them there for a few days so you can experience what it’s like not to think about them. Start exercising mental self-control to stop repeatedly pondering your fears. Finally, try to loosen up a little. Get playful, go on a joyous frolic, or engage in creative play, especially in a region where you’ve grown excessively heavy.
During this New Moon, it’s also a strong time to question yourself where you need to have more self-confidence. Do you have a dream that you would like to pursue but it is being held hostage by self-doubt in a box? Bring it to light and dream greater with curiosity and a spark. What if you somewhat encouraged this dream? This weekend, just take a pussycat paw step in its direction while acting like the Sun! By doing this, you will learn how to stand up for yourself, shed a light on yourself, and in turn, do the same for those around you. Tiger, charge them!
When the Moon is in Leo, what happens?
The energy is generally upbeat because this full moon in Leo avoids having difficult dialogues with other planets. Its opposition to the Aquarian sun, though, still leaves room for conflict. Consider it like this: Leo’s ruling planet, the sun, symbolizes the unique self and life force. Therefore, when the sun is in Aquarius, a sign that is more concerned with the group than the individual, it may find it difficult to express itself. The fact that this Leo full moon is directly opposed to that force just emphasizes how crucial it is for us to prioritize our needs as individuals and our freedom of speech.
This full moon serves as a reminder that you are worthy of occupying space and that you are entitled to your deepest wishes.
Generally speaking, this full moon is not a time to avoid the spotlight. It serves as a reminder that you deserve to occupy the space and that you are worthy of your deepest dreams. Venus (the planet of beauty, creativity, and love) and Mars (the planet of drive and determination) will conjoin on the same day at the same degree of Capricorn, ushering in a new cycle centered on our individual creativity, lessons in love, and learning to pursue our heart’s desires. This is a force that is active and calls for development. And under the influence of Capricorn, we’ll develop the fortitude and tenacity required to follow our aspirations.
How should I prepare for the Leo New Moon in 2021?
A new Moon is believed to be a dynamic time of manifestation, culmination, and self-realization, as was said above. They encourage us to take a moment to consider what is going well (or poorly) in our lives, whether it be in terms of our jobs, relationships, or health, and to make changes as needed.
By include new Moon rituals in your daily schedule, you may easily capitalize on this unique astrological occasion.
Here are a few examples of Leo’s new Moon rituals that might assist you in manifesting and setting excellent intentions for the upcoming new weeks.
Utilize your creativity to loosen up and be impulsive. Break down your barriers and give that new interest you’ve been thinking about a try; you never know, it might turn out to be your genuine vocation.
Give yourself a full self-care day
Schedule a full day of doing only activities that will make you feel like royalty. Draw a bath for yourself, take a long stroll, binge-watch the newest Netflix offerings, and spend the entire day in your favorite pajamas. Due to your merit.
Reassess your social circle
Reevaluate your social circle by looking at the people you spend time with. Are they supportive of your efforts? Do they take your goals seriously? Or are they causing you to doubt your value? If the latter, it could be time to establish relationships with fresh acquaintances.
Treat yourself to some sunflowers
The flower in harmony with the Leo zodiac sign is the vivid sunflower. Treat yourself to a cheerful bouquet during this new Moon and display it in your bedroom, living room, or home office to bring positive energy and color into the space (it also helps knowing yellow is the trendiest colour of 2021).
Start a vision board
Get out any photographs, pictures, magazine cutouts, motivational sayings, or other materials that speak to or symbolize your aspirations. This will assist you in concentrating on your future goals. Would you like to continue? Begin a thankfulness notebook as well.

When will the moon leave Leo?
Leo (July 23-August 22) As a result of the full moon falling in your sign, this will be a very dramatic, intense, and passionate time when you finally close one chapter and start a new one.
When is the Full Moon in Leo?
This coming Full Moon, which occurs in the early morning hours of February 17 (3:56am AEDT), has a very distinct energy. It will take place in Sun-ruled Leo, a fiery and joyful sign. This Full Moon should be more about fire, play, fun, antics, sunbathing, celebration, and sun worship if previous month’s Full Moon was all about Cancerian watering and nurturing.
How to make the most of your Leo Full Moon this Aquarius season.
First things first, if only for the lunacy, become more Leo. The Lion is a kingly, regal, large, entertaining, theatrical, noisy, and egotistical sign. This vitality contrasts sharply with the Aquarius season, which is cooler, dominated by Saturn, more constrained, and more concerned with group dynamics. Consequently, consider this passage as an opportunity to be more “me-oriented and dramatic. That evening, go see or do something exciting. Go somewhere noisy so that you can make yourself louder.
This Full Moon will also be solar-powered because Leo is ruled by the Sun. Visit the beach during the day or a spot with a lot of light at night. Keep in mind the phrases “heat,” “warmth,” “glow,” “radiance,” and “shine” while describing this Moon. The Sun, which gives us life, is, of course, the Tarot card that represents Leo. For optimal good fortune during this passage, make great use of solar energy.
Astro-physiology is a different viewpoint to take into account while looking at this lunation. Leo is in charge of the back. To energize Leo energy during this Full Moon, practice yoga. Or you could schedule a massage in a spa. Your spine will line up with the cosmic chiropractor if you unwind and stretch like a cat. Having a friend you can call in case you need assistance, or someone who will metaphorically have your back, is a good idea because the Full Moon is also a time to let go of pent-up emotional energy.
The heart is governed by Leo as well. Exercise that increases blood flow will delight the Sun-Cat and make your lunation more cheerful. However, we shouldn’t consider the heart solely in terms of its physicality. current Full Moon, express your affection for your pride. Although the big cat enjoys being the center of attention, it also enjoys having its loved ones close by. The holy heart will be strengthened more profoundly by reaching out to or spending time with those closest to you than by riding your Peloton bike.
Finally, consider working with some additional concurrent transits as you approach the Leo Full Moon. On the same day as this Leo lunation, Venus and Mars, the cosmic lovers, are cuddling in the sky. If your Valentine’s Day wasn’t filled with romance, satin negligees drooping to the floor, chocolates, roses, and/or Nora Ephron’s romantic flicks, it’s possible that the 17th is a more lucky day to start dating (when the fire and passion of Mars, Venus, and Leo intertwine). Our calendars are merely rough estimates of celestial Holidays. This revised Valentine’s Day might be a fantastic time for a long-awaited romantic conclusion because Full Moons denote culminations. On this day, suggest a second date or a first date.
Moon transits last only as long as a girl’s garland. Some astrologers don’t pay much heed to them as a result. However, everyone who has read “The Hobbit” or “Lord of the Rings” knows that moonlight can shine keyholes that open doors to wealth that could support us indefinitely even in these infinitesimally narrow cosmic moments. As a result, tune in to the Leo Full Moon and all Moons during all of their phases to find both internal and outward treasures.
What is Leo moon seeking?
You are likely to have an instinctive need to approach life from a place of fun, passion, and creative self-expression if the Moon is in Leo, the dramatic, giving, and fun-loving sign. Since Leo is a Fire sign, it has to do with inspiration and spirit. You are likely to be kind, kind, and instinctively self-assured on an emotional level.
Leo is a Fixed sign, which denotes consistency and tenacity. When you are in love, your love is strong. You may depend on your devotion and amount of support with the Moon in Leo. You might always be prepared to radiate this excess of emotional warmth toward individuals you hold dear because fire signs are recognized for having an abundance of energy.
When does the Moon enter Leo?
Moon in Leo occurs when the lunar sky route crosses the fifth sector of the zodiac, which is between 120 and 150 degrees latitude, and where the constellation of Leo is located. Only from February to August does the Waxing Moon transit the Leo zodiac sign, and only from August to February does the Waning Moon transit Leo.
What distinguishes the Leo sun from the Leo moon?
When the Sun and Moon are in the same sign, their behavior is very different from one another. A lunar Gemini can differ significantly from a solar one. With the two, communication might feel very different.
Because your rising can alter when you relocate, I’ve avoided using the rising symbol in this essay. It’s really of dishonest to compare house placements to planetary placements because the rising also determines all of your house placements.
Here are some of my observations regarding the differences between the Sun and Moon in the signs without further ado:
Sun in Aries vs Moon in Aries
The truth is that the Sun in Aries is not at all overactive. Although sometimes the most obscure Sun sign, this is definitely not an obscure Moon sign. While a solar Aries can enjoy letting people know what they should and shouldn’t do, they lack the raw, blazing energy of a lunar Aries. They are far more stoic, but they are also much more submissive and eager to serve. While the Sun in Aries might be directed to take action, the Moon in Aries will rebel just for the pleasure of rebelling. While Aries Moon is constantly standing up and moving around, Solar Aries spends a lot more time within their heads.
The major distinction between the two, in my observation, is that the Sun in Aries prefers solitude far more than the Moon in Aries, who is much more sociable. Aries Sun like making major life decisions while sitting in one spot indoors far more than Aries Moon, who needs to venture out and experience new things. In contrast to Moon in Aries, who can frequently be late, Sun in Aries is virtually always early to everything. Both work on their own schedules, but Moon is more responsive.
Compare the Sun in Aries to a professional soldier and the Moon in Aries to a lawbreaker in the American West.
Sun in Taurus vs Moon in Taurus
A Taurus Moon has a genuine sensuality to it. There’s no way you won’t notice their social elegance while they’re around you. They are quite sensitive in interpersonal interactions. They also know how to honestly, genuinely appreciate things, of all people. When a Taurus Moon is at the table, you can tell because they always seem to know where the best food in town is. They have a sensation of luxury. They like the greatest quality, are willing to pay for it, and may choose to skip meals if they don’t find them to be appetizing.
On the other hand, Taurus Suns are direct. Despite their physical beauty, they can lack social grace. They focus more on producing material goods than they do on relaxing and appreciating what should be enjoyed. You’re probably eating on a budget rather than in luxury when you eat with them. They are cramming food into their lips rather than tasting it. This placement is straightforward. They are extremely frugal with money as opposed to lunar Taurus’ excessive spending.
Sun in Gemini vs Moon in Gemini
The primary distinction is that Gemini Moons are more prone to saying “Gemini Suns, I’m not sure. Moon in Gemini is a little otaku-like. They are the ones who have been up all night researching every conspiracy idea over the past ten years. Conversations with Lunar Gemini are exceedingly light, effortless, and airy. They actually don’t enjoy being around others as much, though. They always appear to be bored and are gone somewhere weirdly imagining stuff.
Social behavior is more likely in Gemini Suns. They really leave the house and disconnect from the internet because of their curiosity. Their energy is also much stronger. They frequently impart knowledge to others, and while around people, they may fly from one person to another. They certainly aspire to “It is more about giving answers than it is about asking questions when the time is perfect.
Sun in Cancer vs Moon in Cancer
Strong Moon in Cancer. Many of the clichs about Cancerthat they are secretly depressed and never leave the houseare true for lunar cancers. Lunar cancers can occasionally be a bit filthy. It doesn’t always follow that this placement enjoys having their own room that it is a lovely space. They love their own aroma, even though others may not find their space to be comfortable. Since they don’t trust new individuals, they genuinely really dislike meeting them.
As a more outwardly oriented Cancer, Cancer Sun is able to enter a location and make it cozy for the people they care about. The Cancer Suns are the ones who really bind a group together and seem to convey extremely honest, unfiltered emotions. While Cancer Moon prefers to scurry away, they can be a leader who rallies people around a cause. Although both signs have a tendency to be quite scheming, you can usually tell when Cancer Sun or Cancer Moon are angry with you.
Sun in Leo vs Moon in Leo
Leo Moons are much more subdued than Leo Suns are. You might experience a very warm feeling when speaking with Leo Moons. They engage you by focusing solely on you. They have a powerful, sincere feeling. You can see all of Leo Suns’ glitz and sparkle when you engage with them. More so than Leo Moons, they enjoy playing.
Although both signs are powerful, Leo Moon is less inclined than Leo Sun to aspire to be a leader. You can tell when a Leo Sun enters a room because they are greeting everyone and are the center of attention. They tend to demand things of others more frequently. Leo Moon is relaxing somewhere with their friends, grinning and smiling naturally. While Leo Sun makes you laugh at their jokes, Leo Moon laughs at yours. Leo Moon is more about emotional strength and is less overtly ambitious than Leo Sun.
Sun in Virgo vs Moon in Virgo
Virgo Sun is away someplace making their case through countless Facebook debates and dissertations. Even while Virgo Suns are meticulous about the things they care about, you can easily see their thought process, which is why they may be quite messy. They learn EVERYTHING and practice nonstop till they master a talent when they wish to invest in it.
If they don’t share their emotional insights with you, you won’t be able to tell a Virgo Moon when you see one. Yes, they are observing and scrutinizing everything you do, but you won’t be aware of this until they cut you off or express their opinion because they believe you have made a serious mistake. Less emphasis is placed on learning new abilities and more on paying close attention to their environment.
Sun in Libra vs Moon in Libra
Actually, Sun in Libra doesn’t seem to care about being liked at all. In fact, people with the Sun in Libra tend to be extremely passionate about several social concerns and get a head start on everyone else when it comes to these topics. They clearly take a social position. They support pursuing justice and standing up for the weak.
The charm is more important to Lunar Libras. They are the ones who grin just the right amount and diffuse interpersonal tensions. They have a tendency to compare themselves to those they know, yet they also project a lack of concern. They sometimes have a much cooler and more refined social vibe than Libra Suns. While Libra Moon is more interested in solitary interactions, including those that could be romantic in nature, Libra Sun seeks to socially align with groups of individuals.
Compare a social justice advocate with the Sun in Libra with a heartbreaker with the Moon in Libra.
Sun in Scorpio vs Moon in Scorpio
The one with the greatest differences is definitely this one. Moon in Scorpio is thus just more ominous. Because they won’t ever confess it, you can’t tell when you meet a Moon in Scorpio. Because they conceal all of their terrifying shit, they can appear really bland and blend in. They are the ones who conceal information from not only their friends and family but even from themselves. In fact, a Scorpio Moon’s love hurts more the closer you are to them. When they feel offended, which happens often, these fuckwits want a lot of time and space and never give up.
The Sun in Scorpio is powerful and fierce. Unlike Scorpio Moons, who never talk about anything, they are utterly devoted to whatever it is they are talking about. Because they are openly interested in deep or edgy topics like the occult or chatting about sex, Scorpio Suns are easy to identify. Scorpio Moon doesn’t have a close-knit circle of people they strive to trust, whereas Scorpio Sun does. The Moon in Scorpio may appear to be more outgoing than the Sun in Scorpio, but they may not genuinely have much faith in any of their friends. While Scorpio Moon is more likely to give their eight-year-old child the quiet treatment, Scorpio Sun is more likely to mobilize the entire community to oppose the misuse of taxes.
Sun in Sagittarius vs Moon in Sagittarius
Similar to the Gemini predicament, the Sagittarius Moon simply feels more relaxed than Sagittarius Suns. Because they are leaning back and taking in the wider picture of a situation, they may actually not care about anything. While Sagittarius Sun is more eager in using their experimenting to address important concerns, they might also be naturally funnier or sillier.
Because Lunar Sags really let loose, drinking with a Sagittarius Moon is different from drinking with a Sagittarius Sun. Sag Moons really want want to party, whereas Sag Suns are extremely into contemplating and philosophizing about the significance of life. Sag Suns are more interested in intellectual pursuits because they are here to disseminate information, establish new institutions, and circulate news. The purpose of Sag Moons is to make fun of everything.
Sun and Moon in Sagittarius are comparable to a preacher and a party animal, respectively.
