August 16 New Moon in Leo at 24 degrees. The New Moon is a great time to set our intentions and seed a new idea or project. I like to make a mantra for the New Moon phase. It helps me to clarify my intention. This New Moon is square Uranus, and we have Mars trine Uranus. It is a freedom-seeking aspect. It is a two-week period where you can make dynamic changes and be your most authentic self. It is a time to be independent and ready for unexpected events.
