New Moon in Leo
28 July 2022, 20:54 – Romania time
Thursday, 28 July 2022 it is a good time to set new intentions, plans or ideas.
It’s a time to sowing and starting those actions that are really meaningful to us.
It is good to be present, to project positively in accordance with the highest values of our soul and to have confidence in their realization.
Whatever we start now will be imbued with the energy of the zodiac sign leo, a powerful solar energy, full of grandeur.
The detoxification capacity of the body is maximum on the day of the New Moon.
Anyone who makes a rule of having a fasting day every time the Moon is New, will benefit from many advantages in preventing ailments.
Also this day is perfect to start a new activity such as unlearning bad habits.
Often bad habits are the outward expression of some inner energies.
These energies only need a new goal to become useful and valuable for us and for other people.
The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence.
If we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results.
These can be tantamount to the results obtained after a year of hard spiritual practice.
The night preceding this New Moon phenomenon is celebrated in the Oriental spiritual tradition under the name of Shiva Ratri.
In our case it is about the night from 26 to 27 July 2022.
During this astral moment, it is good to:
- we have an easy diet or even to practice Anaharin – fasting only with water
- we reduce the rhythm of daily activities, and to aim to orient ourselves inwards
- to be aware that this night is particularly effective for the practice of meditation
This new beginning can “settle” better in our being and we can fully benefit from this astrological aspect.
For this, it is advisable to perform a short meditation of about 20 minutes of New Moon.
Specifically, during its maximum period, 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after it takes place, that is, between 20:44 and 21:04.
The practice of meditation gives us the opportunity to make important spiritual advances in this way.
How we meditate:
- Sit on a chair with your back straight and your hands resting on your thighs with your palms down
- We aim to completely relax our body, especially the muscles of the face
- It is necessary to feel the physical body abandoned and immobile.
- After we have achieved the “parking” of the body we turn our attention inside the body, in the middle of the chest
- We imagine that we are dimensionless, at that level
- Throughout the meditation, we aim to feel the complex influence of this astral moment, the New Moon
The luminaries, the Sun and the Moon participate in the “cosmic wedding”, by sharing the same zodiac degree.
Now the masculine and the feminine merge into a perfect unit.
Due to the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon there is a special complementarity of yin-yang energies in nature.
We aim to find a perfect agreement between our will and God’s Will
Thus, our consciousness will go through exceptional spiritual transformations.
They will lead to the attainment of the state of inner harmony and peace.
Through the state of consciousness cultivated through different techniques Abheda Yoga, certain unfavorable astrological transits can be transcense.
Apart from these methods to be practiced systematically, it can be said that the destiny of men is written in the stars.
It is relatively difficult for the average man to manifest free will, independent of the influences of celestial bodies.

occupies the sixth house of this astral moment, a sector of service, labor and health.
The Sun is in its own home in Leo, and this New Moon is in the first dean of the sign, also governed by the Sun.
This New Moon in Leo represents the brightest and most radiant moment of the entire year from the solar perspective.
It is a good time to set our new intentions and desires for the next period.
We connect to a state of connection and love for Life itself, for the Creative Principle, for the Vital Force that flows permanently through us.
Let’s set our intentions by being deeply centered in our Heart, in that infinite inner Joy fully felt when we are one with Life.
What do we associate the zodiac sign of Leo with? – with Greatness, Royalty, Domination – Characteristic verb – TO WANT.
Under the aegis of the Lion stand:
- creativity, generosity, children, love and romance
- the ability to enjoy life
- arts, sports, pleasures, relaxation, public entertainments
- organisational principle
We are impregnated with a typical solar energy, strongly masculine, emissive, a fiery energy, stable and intense.
The goal is to achieve our own goals in order to highlight that area of our lives where we have the 5th degree in Leo in the natal chart.
What characterizes us during this period?
The need to receive recognition and appreciation, to rejoice, to be the center of attention, to shine, to be recognized for our merits and above all, to be loved and adored.
Any beginning aimed at:
- the relationship with our children
- a romantic relationship
- any creative, artistic project or endeavor
- possible financial or stock market speculations
- anything that allows us to enjoy life more
- to be more enthusiastic, more cheerful, more open
It is time for a well-deserved holiday, a period of relaxation and fun or a time to invest in a possible hobby.
We can invest more in that talent or skill that singularizes us.
Through it we express our personality, love, creativity or artistic talent but also the ability to lead or coordinate.
Our desires may be more intense at this point.
We put a lot of passion in everything we do, we tend to organize ourselves and those around us, manifesting a possible tendency of domination.
Any therapeutic practice aimed at healing the relationship with our inner child, as an expression of the joy of life, is favored now by honoring one’s own emotional needs.
From a spiritual perspective
The lion symbolizes the idea of “center”, being the one who governs the heart and spine.
He shows us as the true brilliance and greatness we seek outside of ourselves
⇒ to be in our own center, in our spiritual heart.
Our ability to give and to love is the direct expression of this center.
The greatness of the “Lion” consists of:
- the love we give unconditionally
- the ability to empower others
- the power to express our talents and skills with which we have been endowed by God through creativity, by bringing life to earth, by becoming the co-creators of our lives.
We can become real “Lions” on earth but… to remind ourselves permanently
to put ourselves in the service of Life, Light and Truth, in the service of God and not of our own Ego.
The domain of our lives energized by this New Moon is the VI house.
a sector that talks about our work and service, working conditions, physical health, diet, nutrition, daily habits, the ability to put ourselves in the service of a cause.
The New Moon in an element of Fire is now hosted by house VI, specific to the element Earth, as it is the natural home of Virgo.
Assuming creativity, greatness, power to lead needs a concrete and practical environment of manifestation.
The opportunities of this new beginning may concern:
- a promotion at work
- an improvement of relationships in the professional environment
- an assumption of a position that involves the coordination of a professional project
- a more active diet or lifestyle
- a change in daily routine or habits
- purchasing a pet.
! Due to the combination of the sign of the Lion and the VI house it is good to avoid arrogance, domination or imposition on others, excessive criticism and vanity!
But we can become “wise leaders”, empowering and encouraging others to become aware of their talents and abilities.
From the point of view of health it is good to combine health with those exercises, that diet, those remedies or therapies that amplify our well-being, relaxation and optimism.
What helps us during this time?
→ Any kind of energetic practice that balances us and harmonizes our inner fire
→ working with the Manipura Chakra, the third energy center
→ The Sun Salutation
→ The Lion’s Posture – Simhasana
→ meditations that amplify the state of presence and the ability to enjoy the present moment, the Life that manifests itself through us
→ meditations that amplify courage and spiritual heroism
→ any kind of prayer or energetic practice that amplifies the state of humility, karma yoga
(because the New Moon is in the VI house – the house of service and devotion).
Who supports this New Moon in Leo?
– Jupiter in Aries in the second house
, the sector of resources and personal value.
- We are supported to “expand”
- We are encouraged to look at reality with more optimism
- to accept the proposals and the chances when they arise
- to dare to be more confident and courageous about our talents and skills
- to find more creative and fun ways to solve certain responsibilities or daily tasks
The chances may refer to a work proposal, an advantageous change in household, household matters or in the relationship with the professional environment.
They can also target a treatment that can significantly improve our health or a beneficial change in our daily regimen.
But our mental state can be quite tense and agitated, Mercury in Leo is provoked by both Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus.
Let us not rush to say things without thinking them forward, let us not offend others, let us not be impulsive in communication and manifestation.
Our travel plans are subject to change.
Conversations with others can cause us to respond harshly and responsibly as our opinions or rights are violated or restricted. Meetings, conversations, unexpected ideas can come up with new perspectives. but we can take advantage of them as long as we are willing to get out of our comfort zone. Flexibility and the ability to see something from multiple angles helps us.
the message of this New Moon in Leo is an invitation:
- to explore the infinite potential within us, a sentimental, material, spiritual potential
- of celebrating the Life and Joy that exists within us, from the simplest pleasure to the deepest state of fulfillment
But in order to honor Life, it is required of us to become one with Life, one with the Love that exists in our soul, one with the Path we go through to perfection.
⇒ What do you love to do?
⇒ What gives birth to joy in your soul?
⇒ What makes you feel alive and fully free?
⇒ What is your God-given talent that you can offer to the world as a gift?
These are the questions that can help us discover the infinite within us in the next period.
