Do you ever feel like you're just going through the motions? Living someone else's life and not really living your own? If so, this New Moon in Leo is perfect for you. This lunation is all about encouraging love, romance, intimacy, self-expression, and courage. Tapping into your authentic self and starting fresh. Are you ready to claim your power?
Use the energy from the New Moon to set intentions for what you wish to attract in your life and set that old, stagnant energy free. You may feel extra sensitive during July's New Moon, but don't fret, as it can help us to be more attuned and responsive to our environments. Tuning in to the subtle vibrations around us can help to guide and protect us.
Meditation is a fantastic method to reconnect. Consider trying a walking meditation. Take time to re-center yourself, taking note of your environment. Carefully absorb each sight, sound, and fragrance you encounter. Allow the fresh air to fill your lungs as you take deep, purifying breaths.
This New Moon is also perfect for those who are ready to reclaim their power. With a surge of raw, fire energy close by, we are reminded that we are the only ones in control of our lives and that we have the power to create our own reality. If you're feeling lost, confused, or stuck, know that you have the power to change your life for the better.
Clear out the junk that is holding you back - be it physical or emotional - to make space in your life for the new to come flooding in. Cleanse your space with white sage. Try Shadow work or journaling, being sure to give yourself grace and forgive any past shortcomings. On a piece of paper, write down everything you want to let go of, then burn the paper while visualizing the energy's release. (Of course, do so in a safe, responsible manner!) Remove any physical items that are no longer needed by donating what you can and properly disposing of the rest.
Once you've rid yourself of that stale energy, it's time to decide what you do want more of. What are your dreams and goals? What do you wish to accomplish over the next 30 days?
Take the time to write down your intentions clearly, concisely, and specifically. Make your list as detailed as possible. Imagine how this new situation will appear in your life, and then keep that vision at the forefront of your mind. Hold a candle and focus your energy on what you wish to manifest as you state your intention out loud. Light the candle and allow it to burn out on its own, or extinguish it when you feel complete.
Try creating your own ritual for the new moon. It can be something as simple as a short meditation, taking a cleansing bath, going outside to observe the sky, or as elaborate as creating a sacred space and smudging your entire home. Whatever your chosen ritual for this new moon, make sure you take the time to reflect and plant those all-important seeds for your future success.
Happy New Moon, and good luck manifesting your dreams into reality!
