A new moon is rising at exactly 10:42 EST tonight. As is always the case with new moons, we won’t see it but will feel its effects—especially since it’s taking place in Leo while the Sun is in the last hours of this regal, proud sign. Trining Mars, the god of ambition, in first-and-forward Aries, this moon is about shining however you most uniquely shine, and, since we’re cusping on do-gooder Virgo, serving however you most uniquely serve.
So far 2020 has been a long, hard year of upheaval, but this lunar cycle is about self-possession, which is the opposite of the black hole of despair and narcissism. Why? Because when we possess ourselves, we connect with our true essence—what some call the soul. And guess what? Despite what you may have heard, no soul is ugly (not even Trump’!). The problem is too often we don’t connect with our souls, which results in the destructive chaos we’re now experiencing. Quite literally, it is “unbecoming,” since real beauty is the particular glow of anything or anybody united with its highest purpose of that moment. Questions to tackle during this upcoming lunar cycle: “When am I most beautiful? And how may I impart more beauty into this world?”
Tonight, go outside and ask the moon to help you manifest what you find loveliest. If you can, go to a body of water. (Even better: go to the sea.) To help manifest this beauty, I am doing special “luna” tarot readings all afternoon and evening. Because if there ever were a night to trust your heart’s desire, it‘s this one.
