“An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.” Edwin Land

The New Moon in “colorful” Leo the Lion (2:40 pm EDT) is a call for us to be creative and unabashedly share what is inside our  hearts. Leo is the sign of flowering self-expression and fun and entertainment. It also rules romance, hobbies, and children, treasured aspects of our lives that can bring us untold joy.

Today’s lunation is also “extra pleasurable” because it conjuncts sweet Venus, the official procurer of love and beauty, deepening evermore our desire to connect or bond with others. Venus is also trine to electrifying Uranus, the freedom-loving planet of change and originality, with this aspect helping to broker more spontaneity in our feelings. Venus-Uranus tends to free us from our hang-ups or inhibitions. It can also usher in sudden infatuation and liberating or unusual social experiences.

The Moon’s square to indulgent Jupiter in earthy Taurus also reinforces our ravenous appetite for life’s tray of delights, although it also raises a red flag of caution about squandering our resources or going to excess. Optimistic Jupiter can be a bit of a gambler, often willing to risk all of his tidy earnings to date for whatever is magically lurking behind door number three, hoping to double or triple his lot. Of course, we all know that sometimes that strategy can regrettably backfire on us.

“If you must play, decide upon three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time.”  Chinese Proverb

Happy New Moon blessings! Enjoy your Saturday.
