Analysis
What a glorious and beautiful New Moon! This New Moon is going to be a total love fest. Granted there’s a tricky angle to Uranus, which is sure to shake things up, but I still believe this will be one of the more light-hearted New Moons of the year! 
This is THE time to plant seeds for something inspiring. This is considered a black moon, one of TWO new moons in July, and the darkest time of the month during a very SOLAR (Leo) month!  Jupiter will be smiling at the time of this Moon, trining the Sun, and building over the following days. Venus conjunct the Sun and Moon in Leo at the time of the New Moon is symbolic of the divine connection to our heart space. The Sun (Ego) and the Moon (emotions) fuse with Venus directing us HOW to be loving leaders and co-creators. 
You can’t speak about Leo without bringing up the ego. Leo represents the “I AM” within the zodiac wheel. This is the heart, the chest, the spine. The Solar plexus. The solar energy that fills our bodies with passion and childlike creativity. It’s the lion’s jungle swag. Ah, but ego. It’s a tricky thing because we do need one, just a healthy one.  The planets trine Chiron the wounded healer in Aries should help us accomplish this. Keep it in check around the time of the moon. 
This Moon encourages us to reflect on the ego, and with Uranus’s square, you’re apt to experience some unexpected energy to test it. But that’s the beauty of being a leader, sometimes we have to make choices that are not always about us, sometimes it’s about what’s best all around. (This can be challenging with all the planets moving through Leo, some of you will have challenges escaping the drama). Leo Also rules true love, and many signs are apt to be struck by cupids arrow in August. Be sure to check my August horoscopes coming in a few days to see if it’s you. 
Soon Mercury will end his retrograde, and head back into Leo in the following month. This means contracts get the green light again shortly, communications become more clear, digital issues should cease and so on. Hooray! Catch a play or theatrical performance with some friends. Maybe start the beginning phases of a new personal project. Enjoy quality time with your children. Get creative!
