So the moon is making its transition into Leo (either today or tomorrow depending on where you live). The transition today will make it the second new moon in July (and a super black moon at that). This also means that the month is over, and there are only five months left in the year. I’m getting better at not asking where the time is going, and I’m trying to get better at time management.
So what are some of things that one can do during the Leo New Moon?
Show off—celebrate life.
Love thyself—self-love, work on confidence, and leadership skills.
These are all good for being within the Leo constellation, but one should also look to see what house/zone the moon & Leo are progressing through as well. For me, that means that Leo is going through my 10th house, or my career zone. This is about my career & reputation (professional brand).
So what are some of the things that one can do during this time in regards to the career zone?
Speak to your boss about how you’re doing.
Help a colleague out of a rut.
Check that you’ve not become status mad.
Start a new business as close to the new moon as you can.
Apply for new jobs with confidence.
When you’ve earned it, take the credit.
Plot your next best career move.
I finding it reassuring that the career zone and new moon are falling within this period again this year. It seems like the universe is nudging me to leave my current position—when I need something ordered for my job, the item is on backorder for months (and now there are two items). Last year, it was a computer issue—this year it is a technical issue. I am currently plotting my next move—it’s going to be a reboot break/pause. This way I can figure out what the hell I want to do with the second half of my life (as I’m looking at entering the last year of my thirties pretty soon).
So looking at these two lists, my goals for the Leo New Moon will include the following:
- Continue planning/outlining my reboot break/pause time.
- In part with #1—plan at least one trip (either total mental break or a combination mental break/networking/job searching).
- Work on creating more content for the blog and getting back into creative writing.
- Continuing with the photography challenge
- Work on my daily meditation practice (try to get back to meditating 5-10 minutes a night).
As always my current motto is: Progress over perfection. Right now slow is the pace I need to be going, as I try to focus on both my health and moving my career forward.
