Leo — your relationships are about to get a lot more passionate due to the new moon and the energy it is bringing into your life. This celestial shift is going to empower you to add more meaning to your connections. Shining down on your seventh house of lovers, friendships, and enemies, this new moon is motivating you to take a deeper look at the people in your life, and the roles that each of them plays in your heart. You’re also going to be paying more attention to the kind of human being you are — how do you show up for others, how do you express yourself when you care? How do you contribute to relationships, and how can you expand into kinder dynamics? This is all preparing you for an awe-inspiring love, so don’t be afraid of doing the hard work right now.
Leo – the energy being poured into your life is indicating that your future is going to be a beautiful one. You are going to experience so much at the hands of love, and connection, but right now you have to decide who you want to share that depth with. Look inwards, and follow your heart.
Aquarius — even though you may not always like to admit it, you love to stand out and be noticed. Despite your sign sometimes tending to be shy and reserved, always preferring to stay out of the spotlight, you can’t help but enjoy feeling seen and valued for who you truly are deep down. You don’t mind being known in that way.
With this new moon, you are going to experience just that, as it begins to light a spark within your first house of self. You are going to feel reborn and renewed, and you might even look in the mirror and feel like you don’t recognize yourself. Your confidence, and the way you hold yourself in this world, are shifting in the most empowering way, and it isn’t going to go unnoticed.
You are being encouraged by the Universe to take advantage of this expansion and to embrace the person you are evolving into. Now is the time to celebrate yourself, and how much you have opened yourself up to growth. Aquarius — you may not be the same person you were yesterday, and that may overwhelm you at times, but you are transforming into the best version of yourself, and that is something you should be proud of.
