What to do with a Leo New Moon?

A potent time of collected energy, the astrological emphasis now culminates in the Leo Zodiac sign.

This lunar phase is best used for closure, transition, and release, with the promise of fresh starts and new beginnings being seeded. 

Sun and Moon are gathered together in this ‘fixed‘ fire sign, which I liken to a campfire blazing bright at a summer beach party, the night drawing in…

Here are some beautiful ways to slow down and honour the new moon – rituals to mark the moment.

Rituals To Mark The Leo New Moon

  • Focus on your Star Qualities – Express Yourself

Like Leo Madonna sang, Express Yourself.

New moons give you the opportunity for a fresh start – to do and try something new. In Leo, that means our creative prowess, talents and star power is in the spotlight – or moon light!

It’s highly likely that what’s ready to be birthed is already on your radar – or in motion – yet there’s still plenty space to manifest with the new moon. Write down intentions, sing or dance them into motion.

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and represents the burning desire in man to recreate, procreate and be recreational – to have fun, play and be childlike. 

That’s why Leo’s are natural storytellers and thespians – because they so easily CREATE, entertaining us with warmth, generosity of spirit and their unquenchable enthusiasm.

Don’t be afraid to try something totally new!

  • Get Rest – Indulge In Beauty Sleep…

It’s not just the full moon that disturbs our sleep pattern.

The new moon has the potential to knock us off our feet so rest up, get an early night and your beauty sleep!

  • Romance Yourself – Make Poetic Promises…
    The new moon is a powerful time for still contemplation, thinking about what you’d like to manifest or ‘make real’.
    Write your list with pure poetry for extra promise in your intentions; add a little extra lilt to your musings now…
  • Wish Upon A Star – The Sun Is Leo’s Ruler…

Fire sign Leo is highly creative, so this is a wild time to wish upon a star (which also happens to be Leo’s ruler)…


  • Refresh Your Locks – Go Big & Bold…

Muse: Charlize Theron, Born On A Leo New Moon….

Where Leo falls in our horoscope shows where we can be proud (and where we can use gold touches…) It’s the area of the natal chart where the new moon will occur – make wishes for that area of life and watch your dreams come to fruition over the next eighteen months!

Celebrities Born On A New Moon In Leo…

Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Patrick Swayze, Kelis, Shelley Long, Stepfanie Kramer, Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Peter O’Toole, Pete Burns, David Walliams, Gus Van Sant and Martin Sheen.

So, the new moon in Leo – what to wish for?!


As the first sign of the zodiac fire sign Leo rules your creative impulses, Aries. Let your imaginative juices flow this new moon – crack open the crayons or visualise what you could bring into existence!

Close friends, school acquaintances or playmates, close peers, coworkers or those you see everyday in the workplace – your ‘siblings’, literally or metaphorically are in the frame this new moon, Gemini. Consider a fresh start for you and your besties, and take time to consider close ties. Your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde, giving you a bit of a dip in confidence, however you’ll be back to your best early August.


Your job role and income are in focus this new moon, so think ‘abundance’, Crab… Write out the cheque, stick it on the fridge, believe and you will receive. As per L’Oreal – you’re WORTH IT! Think of the new work opportunities you’d like and ways you can create earnings and revenue with your talents.


You do you, Leo. That’s the message of this new moon, so if you’re not feeling particularly in your power it’s time to remind yourself what you’re really made of – pure gold! Set your personal intentions for the next six months and beyond – to the next year and a half! You’ve a powerful opportunity to start a wonderful new chapter. Remember it’s all about you.


With planets swimming in the closure zone you could be experiencing an end of an era, with a death of some kind closing a chapter behind you. Your hidden agenda can come into focus now, with your most private affairs and secret desires spotlighted. Change and transition is a given, Virgo, so let it unfurl. With your ruling planet retrograde it could be a tricky time to navigate in your social circle yet hang in there.


Social butterfly Libra, Leo governs the area of your horoscope connected to groups and networking. It could now be time to connect and bring together the individuals you adore. Manifest a circle of friends – it could be the start of something magnificent! Members of your company or peers at work could be emphasised, or special friendships that link you to your dreams and how you want to develop in the world, doing something meaningful; don’t forget those online communities too.


For Scorpio, Leo governs the area of your horoscope pertaining to career, your public role or reputation and the nature of your vocation. That’s why so many Scorpio’s make incredible thespians and dramatic performers – not only because of their powerful presence but because of their star power, courtesy of Leo. With this new moon in Leo it’s time to take your time in the spotlight, and have a slice of fame. You’ve a unique opportunity to see your name in lights so seize it, Scorp!


A brand new adventure could already be locked in, Sagg, or you could be poised to embark! Whether it’s the departure lounge, a new calling or a fresh term at school or university that’s lined up big tings are yours to embrace. It’s Leo season, which represents journeys further afield – even abroad – and foreign connections. It’s also the most spiritual area of your horoscope, and the zone of learning and growth. So, what are you waiting for?


It’s an interesting new moon for you Capricorn, as your most private affairs are in focus. From property deeds and inheritance monies, to taxes outstanding, contracts, commitments and all manner of property or shared assets in mind, you could be ruminating on important matters. Though you’ll need time to process it you’ll come out on top, you always do canny Cap. 


Look towards the one you love this new moon, Aquarius, for the new moon appears in your partnership zone. Perhaps a new collaboration has come on your Aquarian radar, or perhaps you’re into a special suitor! Business or pleasure, friendship or simply fun in a twosome, it’s essential to share the load. 


A new job? A new routine? A new set of habits to be proud of Pisces? All these are distinct possibilities, as the new moon resets your agenda in your zone of everyday matters and work-life. If you need assistance now is the time to put in a request to the universe; help could be on its way to you. This is also an incredible time to start off on the right foot for health and wellness, implementing a new regime or diet!
