New Moon in Leo (6 August 2013)

Lauterbach, Vogelsberg (Germany)
"Luminous creativity is the capacity to go deep within yourself and give visible shape to what without you, will never have the chance to be seen, which also includes what despite you will provide blessings to the world." (FS)

The New Moon in Leo takes place at 21:51 GMT on 6 August 2013 in 14° 34' Leo. 

This New Moon promotes the playful expression of your creativity, the capacity to hold and manage power on the stage of life, the conscious awareness and implementation of our true purpose. 

This New Moon is in trine with Uranus. Uranus stirs and changes whatever is static, conventional and ordinary. Its energy liberates us from the yoke of routine, providing excitement and motivation to venture into new territories, even apparently most outrageous ones. Hence here there is significant potential for conceiving inventive, original creative projects, insights, and ideas. At this stage unusual dreams, intuitions and relevant events, especially of a playful and pleasant nature, may provide clues about what wants to emerge.

The New Moon is an active phase, with the male energy being prevalent. It carries new awareness and a shift of perspective. This allows space to identify intentions and foundations for new projects or to release old cycles and grievances. Yet, since the whole scenario is vague, it may also be a time of vulnerability and uncertainty, which benefits from pauses, rest, reflection and most of all playfulness. 

The general questions here are: “What do I truly want?” or “What gives me and others joy?” 

More specific questions may be: “What do I choose to create? What have I chosen to create so far? What am I called to express on the stage of life? What can I generously and playfully dispense to the world? Shall I take the risk of embracing what I truly cherish right now?” 

On a New Moon questions require an honest answer, which is not conditioned by general or cultural ideas about what is desirable and strictly refers to one’s own uncontaminated awareness. Also, once the answer comes, Leo calls for direct exposure and accomplishment.

The New Moon in Leo is definitely not about imitating others. Here you are called to identify what distinguishes you from the rest, allowing the emergence of gifts, which can only come through you, and most of all despite you. While our role is essential to give birth to our creations, once they are generated they take a life on their own, which even allows them to outgrow us, to move far beyond our limits and frames of mind. Once we have given visible shape to what abides within ourselves, this will emanate a light of its own, which will shine on the world, including us, the creators themselves.

During each New Moon you have the opportunity of spontaneously gliding into the energy of your creative intent.

Here please be aware of your creative intent, no matter whether it appears as a fantasy to your ordinary mind or environment. This is not the time to be pragmatic or to be concerned about how to accomplish things. It is the moment to open up to your pure intention, as you fully envisage it with no limitations. Later, as the cycle progresses, there will be chances to refine the intention, orienting it towards manifestation and understanding its practical implications.

6 August, besides being New Moon in Leo, is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and also the Christian Feast of the Transfiguration. This relates to an exceptional episode of shapeshifting narrated in the New Testament (Matthew 17:1–9, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28–36).

Jesus and three of his apostles go to a mountain, where Jesus is transfigured, shining with bright rays of light, "His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them." Then the prophets Moses and Elijah appear next to him and he speaks with them.

This episode is associated with the element fire, the third chakra energy, the reawakening and integration of the kundalini energy, the capacity to bridge the temporal and the eternal, heaven and earth.
