Not that long ago it was the lions gate portal and the Leo new moon. In Islam we are in Muharram which is the first month of the Islamic calendar. In the Vedic calendar this is a Jyotish new moon.
The musings of a Hedge Witch
It is the Aquarius full moon in the season of Leo.
This is an interesting mix for sure. Especially for my partner who is an Aquarius with a Leo moon. Things will feel topsy turvy for him in relation to matters of the heart. Leo rules the heart anyway (Leo Lionheart!) and the moon governs our emotions. Needless to say my partner at this time will struggle with flipping from emotion to thought, emotion to thought. For Leo tends to be extroverted feeling and Aquarius, whilst expressive and a bit of an eccentric, has introverted thought processess and they tend to overthink like a computer with a million tabs open.
But he has his moon in Leo, so deep down he’s a cuddly lion (I’m super lucky about this, I’m his Queen and I get the best hugs). As his best friend says “Some people wear their heart on their sleeve, Craig wears his all over his body.”- ACCURATE.
Heavenly forecast: Month of Leo with Aquarius Moon

AQUARIUS FULL MOON IN THE MONTH OF LEO
The Sun entered it’s home sign of Leo on August 1st, bringing with it a fresh and optimistic, gregarious outlook. Today the Full Moon occurs in the opposite sign of Aquarius, a colder more aloof placement. We may feel a strong push-pull energy this Full Moon, for Leo and Aquarius are opposite axis (Like Libra/Aries for example).
Axis points are important to understand as they represent opposing energies that also compliment each other. Leo and Aquarius are very different, yet they contain seeds of the other. Much like a yin and yang symbol.
Leo energy is connected to the Sun, so it’s warm, Aquarius is connected to Saturn & Uranus so it’s more cold and distant. Leo is all about self and being the leader, whereas Aquarius is all about the collective, the world and humanity.
The Leo/Aquarius axis is all about the Individual and the Collective, the Self and the Whole, The Personal Ego and Humanity, the Inner work and the Outer work.
This Full Moon, we must ask ourselves – how can we balance the needs and desires of the collective, of humanity and balance it with our own individual wants and desires? How can we do both our inner personal work, and outer collective work at the same time? Continue reading
New moon in Gemini (The month of Gemini) as the phase of the moon is waxing in Leo. Gemini governed by the element of air and Leo governed by fire makes for a beautiful mix. For air fuels fire. This is a time to dream big, utilzing the communicative and creative breezyness of Gemini with the dramatic, ambitous Leo. These two playful energies push us to make impossible-seeming choices (which I can very much relate to right now!). Before we fly away, we must face our fears and feel our feels—but then, it’s time to conquer the world. Communicate YOUR truth, be true to YOUR Heart.
The more you communicate your true self, life flows easier.
With this Leo waxing moon, consentrate on your heart centre, circulation, blood pressure and heart rate.
Flower of choice: Roses. Roses are not always associated with romance. Roses are soothing and have a dream-like quality. As you wish for things to manifest, pick rose petals and send them into the wind and into the universe. Dream Big! Also, roses, when in full bloom kind of resemble and are symbolic of a giant heart, just like the courageous Leo lion heart! Continue reading
