Aug 6 2013 New Moon: Sun Leo-Moon Leo
“Was this then how youth, how life should truly be? No endless poring over books and dusty manuscripts, but acting out the glory of the word made flesh? Such tenderness! Such breathless apprehension of the mystery in things! And afterwards, such peace!”
Lindsay Clarke, The Chymical Wedding (1989)
Sun-ruled Leo, sign of fire and romance, spoons our plates with a double helping today: a Leo New Moon perfecting at 5:51 pm edt after which the Moon becomes void-of-course until the evening of August 7th (Ramadan ends).
A Sun Leo-Moon Leo blend is magnetic, demonstrative, and visionary with a single-minded view and a flair for showing its best side though it can be moody at times. The quote above from The Chymical Wedding is chosen because Leo-Leo is the natal personality blend of author Lindsay Clarke.
Vanity and passion combine along with a self-centered streak and a tendency toward throwing temper tantrums, all of which may describe the personalities of the book’s main characters as well as its author!
Here are the ‘Images for Integration’ for the Sun Leo-Moon Leo blend from Charles & Suzi Harvey’s Sun Sign-Moon Sign (the Images may remind you of a certain prince recently born–and rather curiously, this Sun-Moon blend is shared natally by British actress Barbara Windsor):
“A child in an Edenic paradise builds a beautiful sandcastle in the sunshine with all the creatures of nature in joyous attendance…In full pageantry, the new king is crowned before his kingdom.”
Wishing everyone a joyous and safe New Moon of new beginnings!
