REviewing Benevolence

TIME to bring all anew to the area of life where The Lion reigns in your Zodiac Pie! A fresh start in Leo promises generous and confident energies you definitely don’t want to miss-out on. Yet, it is wise to be in the know with this particular lunation, the communications that Mercury has recently brought here, now will wish to be ideally reflected upon before moving forward. Where are you best to focus upon the typical Mercury Retrograde redo and review from the Universe?

Moon enters Leo 30 July 2:16am EDT to 01 Aug 4:41am EDT

Leo Lunar energy must beware of conceited, self-indulgent, and opinionated energies that may arise. When there is plenty of magnanimous leadership around, it is easy to gravitate to not being able to recognize limitations. While a strong sense of pleasure-loving and dramatization mark any planetary passage through The Lion, the cultivation of humility, altruism, thrift, and attention to detail will allow this transit to reap its’ greatest rewards.

New Moon, 30 July, 2:40pm EDT 7 degrees Leo

As our Moon and Sun align once more, a NEW Moon in Leo brings forth passionate and heartfelt feelings as our Lunar Light joins hands with The Lion. As another waxing phase begins, it’s time to get those new ideas and initiations out there to gather in the light. When our New Moon embarks in the dignified energies of Leo -the sign that consciously aims for creative self-expression- the collective is primed to tap into some inspiration and faith. Fire is Leo’s elemental influence, so be alert to the radiating gifts that are meant to unfold- as this New Moon kicks off an loyal and vital force that The Lion wishes to share with the world.

For the Collective

No sooner do we celebrate our yearly offering for bringing on the new in Leo, than will Mercury begin his 2nd Retrograde Period of 2011. As we embark upon the New Moon 30 July, our Messenger of movement will be starting his station as he slows down to 0 degrees Virgo, only reaching the 12th minute of 01 degrees Virgo by 02 August. Once Retrograde, Mercury takes until 08 August to re-enter Leo, where he will remain until 09 September.

While this Mercury Retrograde will not quite touch back to the 7 degree point of our New Moon in Leo, you can be sure that there is revising that will wish to occur from this area of your Zodiac Pie. It will be wise to take the New Moon’s offering of fresh starts to emerge here and slowly but surely tend to them over the Mercury Retrograde transit. Remember, when The Messenger isn’t looking where he is going, human error is the highest. Therefore, it is best to hold off on true legal signings and any initiations for the future when Mercury is instead asking you to reflect and reassess within this area of the life, 02 to 26 August.
