Moon Phase in Leo – Let’s shine a light

The moon is fascinating and for thousands of years people believed that it had a certain power that influenced live here on earth. In modern times we more likely do see the moon now and again, hanging in there and might get the one or other romantic thought about it.

We totally forgot about what the people for thousands of years did realize when they lived in harmony with nature. That the moon has actually a true power and it does affect our every day lives, if we do believe it or not. Science has proofed that the moons gravitational power is responsible for the rise of ebb and flow and also for the changing weather..

The more we drift away from this outermost understanding the more we will not be able to comprehend life in all its magical and powerful aspects. We are living organisms, we are influenced by our environment and the moon plays an important part with that.

On its journey around the Earth the moon takes approx. 28.5 days for a full orbit. During these journey he passes through the Zodiac Signs, which are symbolic language for certain energetic qualities. The Earth in its orbit around the Sun causes the Sun to appear on the celestial sphere moving along the ecliptic (red), which is tilted 23.44° with respect to the celestial equator (blue-white).

The zodiac is an area of the sky that extends approximately 8° north or south (as measured in celestial latitude) of the ecliptic, the apparent pathof the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year. The paths of the Moon and visible planets are also within the belt of the zodiac.

In Western astrology, and formerly astronomy, the zodiac is divided into twelve signs, each occupying 30° of celestial longitude and roughly corresponding to the constellations Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

The twelve astrological signs form a celestial coordinate system, or more specifically an ecliptic coordinate system, which takes the ecliptic as the origin of latitude and the Sun’s position at vernal equinox as the origin of longitude.” ~ Wikipedia 2018

And when the moon on its journey passed through the Zodiac, there are certain energetic qualities are present that do influence our body, mind and spirit. On Days when the moon passes through Leo we will more than likely a bit more confident and sure of ourselves than on other days. Our creative and self-expressive senses are heightened and we more than likely want to show it to the world. We have the desire to be seen and heard and sometimes it doesn’t matter under which circumstances. While the moon in Leo can bring empowerment for some, it might just light the candle of drama for others and they celebrate their misery in dramatic ways.

Nothing is at it seems, what the Maya said anyway but on Leo Moon days everything is exactly how it appears at least to everyone individually. It is about my truth, and my reality, my food and my time. We won’t tolerate any disrespect and will raise our voices if we feel treated unfairly. With moon in Leo, this can happen all the time, because we do deserve better and we know that.

It is a great day to treat yourself in a Spa or to a nice shopping trip unless you lack the finances then you might should wait a little bit longer. When the moon phase is in Leo we more likely to take risks and won’t accept any limitations from the outside. Who can tell a Leo what to do? Exactly, no one! During those days it will be much more easier for us to overcome obstacles in our lives and go for what we want. This is not because we know we can do it, rather more we know that we do deserve it. It is definitely a great day to speak your mind but we will also need to learn that others have that desire too.

Everything that hast to do with the heart and passion is very much highlighted and can bring some new and old fires burning again. Let your light shine, let your passion carry you away and furthermore let hair down once in a while.

These days can come up with some egocentric expression and we easily lose sight of the details. We want to shine and we want it now, if anybody can help with this, even better. It is a day for Drama Queens and Attention Seekers, they might even pushing each other into the spotlight, because this is were the Leo energy is on its best. A good day to treat oneself to whatever we feel to and let others do the rest. Don’t expect to much of others during these days because Leo energy can make us a bit more lazy and restful. There is no rush in aiming for the finish line when you know you born a winner anyway.

A good day to ask for a pay rise or a promotion, because we are more sure about ourselves and what we deserve. Also a great day to have a look into travel magazines and find out where you will be going next. Nothing is impossible on these days because the Leo energy will bring some sunshine into your life, even it is the light of others. There will be a helping hand somewhere and we are closer to God than on other days, because we know she/he lives within.


Put your red shoes on and show the world your dance, just once more act like nobody is watching! And if so, who cares anyway.



When the moon passes through Leo it is a great day to see your hairdresser, you will be impressed by this good influence.

If you suffer from a weak heart or circulation you might want to spend some extra thought on that and avoid long and stressful journeys. Take a rest instead and recharge your batteries just like the king of the jungle.

People suffering from Insomnia will feel this more than on other days and might want to consider some herbal treatments or the visit to an alternative healer or therapist.

If you are a smoker, you should smoke less to give your heart a bit of a rest.

Protein and Fruit are very easy for the body to digest during those days so we should eat plenty of it. Try to avoid too much physical labour, your system will thank you for that.

Its a great day to collect herbs for Healing Heart and Circulation problems.
