The New Moon August 2021 at 16º Leo Decan 2
The New Moon August has ‘regal’ stamped all over it. The Moon in Leo decan 2 especially resonates with playing a very Queenly, backstage, strategic role. This new moon makes us warm hosts, who take control of any social situation. We will make sure that all guests are taken care of. The energy is great for organizing people and events so that the flames of enthusiasm and conviviality forge longstanding alliances.
A good word to describe the Moon in Leo Decan 2 is ‘Gracious’, though in some cases it can be more like ‘Goodness Gracious!’ Indulgence can become a problem if we lay on excessive compliments, gifts and flattery to those we want to court favour with. The new moon in Decan 2 can be a great benefactor for the arts and is a protector of children. The protective influence of the great mother bear of Ursa Major is felt strongly in this decan and this ramps up the mothering aspect of the new Moon energy .
The Moon soothes down the roaring energy of Leo Decan 2 somewhat, but this decan is still regarded as being ‘Mouthy’. Those touched by this new moon energy will be outspoken. The new moon makes us fearless in our reasoning and we will dive into debates with gusto. Jupiter rules this decan of Leo. Combining Zeus with the Lion King will create someone who relishes power and is very happy to give orders. Those ignited by the Leo new moon then will be accused of being bossy. At the same time, these bossy people will be wonderful at organizing when most people can’t be bothered.
You can rely on this Lunar Eclipse to cut the crap out of any chaos rather than just faffing-about politely, not wanting to appear rude. A Leo decan 2 Lunar Eclipse does tough-love extraordinarily well, but sometimes make enemies because of this. The roaring mouth of the lion combined with the super-nanny energy of Ceres will never sugarcoat.
