As promised — here are the results for the Leo New Moon Card Reading that was posted on August 12th.
This month’s results are posted below.
These cards reveal your specific message for the August New Moon which takes place on Friday August 14th at 10:53 am EDT. We’ll do the same for the Virgo New Moon — which is also an eclipse — next month (on September 13th).
The Sabian symbol for this degree is: “A Carrier Pigeon Fulfilling Its Mission.” This is a powerful symbol that refers to the importance of messages that we both send and receive. What is it you have to say during this cycle? Now is the time to find your voice. What message is the Universe trying to send to you? Now is the time to listen.
The following cards were selected to represent nine different areas of focus. They’re also tied to the Moon’s conjunction to the planets as she moves through her 28-day lunar cycle.
Here are the interpretations for each of the positions, starting with card 1:
Card 1 — Sun / Moon conjunctions — Awakening:
“Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that: it lights the whole sky.” ~ Hafiz
If you picked this card, the energy of the Moon conjunct Sun (or New Moon) will resonate with you during this lunar cycle. This aspect occurs on August 14th at 21° of Leo.
The New Moon cycle reminds you that every day is a brand new day, and an opportunity to reinvent yourself. And especially as this New Moon takes place in Leo, the sign associated with creativity, self-expression, purpose and will.
The Sun / Moon conjunction blends the masculine yin energy with the feminine yang energy. It combines strength with vulnerability and confidence with compassion.
It invites you to offer your intentions up to the Universe and heed the messages that come your way. What is it you have to show the world that you may have kept under wraps until today? Now is the time to come alive and to bask in the warmth of the Sun’s glow.
Card 2 — Moon conjunct Mercury — Wisdom:
“I am circling around God, around the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
If you picked this card, the energy of the Moon conjunct Mercury will resonate with you during this lunar cycle. This aspect occurs on August 16th at 14° of Virgo.
The Moon / Mercury conjunction refers to an insatiable thirst for knowledge and an ability to impart both guidance and wisdom to others. It’s capable of listening as well as speaking and gathering information for later use.
This aspect is curious, observant and insightful. It’s capable of seeing things that others cannot see. Its unique vantage point allows it to rise above petty grievances and broaden its perspective.
This is an introspective cycle focused on learning and sharing what you’ve learned with others. It’s a good time to study, counsel and grow. While you may not be ready to spread your wings and fly, relaying the information you’ve gained will serve you well during this period.
Card 3 — Moon conjunct Jupiter — Inspiration:
“Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the dark journey with us.” ~ Henri Frederic Amiel
If you picked this card, the energy of the Moon conjunct Jupiter will resonate with you during this lunar cycle. This aspect occurs on August 15th at 0° of Virgo.
The Moon / Jupiter cycle is first and foremost about expanding your horizons. It’s about stepping outside your comfort zone and exploring unchartered territories. It’s about finding inspiration in the world around you and being an inspiration to others.
You may feel the urge to travel during this cycle or embark on a new area of study. It’s a good time to learn a new language, immerse yourself in a foreign culture or embrace a new way of thinking.
This is an important cycle as it also marks the entrance of Jupiter into Virgo. Use it to see the world, if only through brand new eyes.

“If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.” ~ Rumi

The Venus / Moon conjunction speaks of opening your heart to the prospect of love, beauty, romance and affection. When you place it in warm, generous, benevolent Leo, magic can happen!
Venus is now retrograde and may see you feeling nostalgic and longing for loved ones from days gone by. A lover from the past may resurface during this time or you may feel the urge to reach out and touch someone from long ago.
While you may not be able to literally go back home — at least to that simpler time where life seemed so much less complicated — you can reconnect with loved ones and heal old wounds. Use this time to get in touch with your feelings and to tell those that you care about exactly how you feel.
Card 5 — Moon conjunct Pluto — Transformation:

You can make great progress during this cycle in all aspects of your life. You must be willing to let go of whatever is no longer serving you to make room for all that is.
