Leo New Moon
The energy in my house is crazy! My cats are wrestling, my dog is stalking the cats, and all three are racing around with fierce abandon. We have entered the Leo Dark Moon window and this Moon energy is wild!
The Leo New Moon is dominated by conjunctions in Leo, Aries, and Capricorn. The Leo Sun/Moon conjunction is aligned with Mercury and in a harmonious relationship to Mars, Eris, and Black Moon Lilith in Aries. These three are squaring the Great Shift planets – Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn in Capricorn.
In the myths of ancient Greece, Mars and Eris were cohorts on the battlefield, fiercely urging combatants in ruthless acts of war. In this partnership, Mars is the blunt force instrument; Eris is more subtle. While the results can be destructive, her actions are motivated by a deep dissatisfaction with injustice. In modern times, the presence of Eris can be seen in the Me Too and Black Lives Matter movements. We also see her reflection in the revelations surrounding Jeffrey Epstein and the long years of abuse of young girls by men powerful in politics and society.
Black Moon Lilith is conjunct to Mars and Eris and square to Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. Black Moon Lilith – an alignment between Earth and the Moon – is the fierce, instinctive, and untamed facet of the feminine. Her presence will be strong throughout this next Moon phase, expressed through a subtle awareness of an unfettered energy moving just below the surface of our collective awareness.
A splash of Eris and Lilith will be needed to birth the New Earth. During this Dark Moon Window (August 17 – 19), connect with the wild and untamed force that lives just below the surface of your polite and proper self. Unleash your Inner Wild One and invite her to participate in your creative process.
