The New Moon in Leo occurred yesterday, Tuesday, August 6, at 5:51 pm EDT (9:51 pm GMT), at 14 degrees. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth.

This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Leo) will highlight the fiery Leo qualities of leadership, confidence, and (possible) bossiness, as well as fifth house themes of leisure, entertainment, and recreation. This New Moon period is the perfect time to examine how you view yourself. Are you lacking confidence or self-esteem? Or perhaps you have too much, and err on the side of egotistical? Perhaps you need to stand up for yourself, or plan a much-needed vacation. Now is the time to initiate changes.
