August 18 2020 at 7:42 pm PDT is a new Moon in Leo. Fire sign Leo rules the fifth house of creativity, self expression, and children. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Leo, bringing creativity, passion, and excitement. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury also trine Mars in Aries for strength, stamina, and courage.

This new Moon begins Wood Monkey lunar month until September 16. Monkey is a favored sign of the Chinese zodiac, and Monkey month is considered fortunate, especially in a Rat year. Monkey is ingenious, mercurial, and a natural leader.

The element Wood symbolizes new growth and expansion, making Wood Monkey growth-oriented, creative, and idealistic. There’s increased confidence to speak your mind and make bold plans. If you were considering a new path, now it the time to plan or launch under the influence of Wood Monkey.

However, even with Wood Monkey’s enthusiast and pioneering spirit, Mars squares Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. There could be obstacles in your path, or a need to slow down to address details. There can be creative transformation, but also power struggles and disagreements with people going to extremes. Contact me for your tarot or astrology reading for clarity.

The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction (blended together) in Capricorn continues, placing focus on financial and political issues. All three of these planets are retrograde, adding to the intensity.

Opportunities for breakthroughs and forging a new path are for all, and are most life changing for Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years.

Happy new Moon,
