New moon in Leo; 2nd August 2016 – Setting intentions for a more direct you!

New moon in Leo: August 2nd 2016 – desires for direction.

Hello my enchiladas! I already completed a quick post on what Leo energy was all about, and what we should be expecting in this season, but I have taken the time to put together a further little piece specific for today, and the ways in which we can harness this new moon potential, in order to excel further!

What I like to do for new moons, (and full moons), is to set an intention. This intention will carry me through the remainder of the month, and is kind of like a sacrament I make with myself. I will try to honour this pledge, and be consciously aware of integrating it into my psyche, and my daily practices.

Many different websites and articles will advise you about different ways to set your intention. You can actually choose any of these ways, but really, it is just as simple as writing them down somewhere, and writing with intention, and focus.

I do like to have a new moon bath, where I soak myself in salts, but this is not entirely necessary to do – however, I do find it symbolic of cleansing, and starting anew.

I will include my little new moon ritual at the bottom.

Page of swords, Ace of cups, Two of cups, Three of cups, Three of wands.

This months new moon in Leo, arrives to us, with an energy of self expression. The page of swords encourages us to express our truths, and vocalises our likes, dislikes, wants, and preferences. This is the only way that we will be heard. This challenges creatives and empaths especially who have problems with expression, to learn to articulate themselves. Not voicing your truth leads only to two things; passive aggression, and resentment – and this is exactly what we do not want. We have been working so hard lately to rid ourselves of harsh energies, and our shadow aspects, so it is important to not get caught up in the things that create them.

Leo energy is bold, and dominant, this is the individual who will not be taken advantage of because, they will NOT take any B.S! I mean all of the Leo’s that I know, are willing to serve some serious sass if crossed – and you need to be the same. This is self respect for yourself. 

The two of cups asked you to remain balanced. Vocalising your truth is not the same as being rude, or aggressive. The lion knows when to attack. A true leader does not attack to prove a point, or to flex their strengths. You must learn to communicate in a way that is based on resolution, and truth, rather than arguments, bitterness, and anarchy.

It is also about balance – learning to take the good in life with the bad. Will bad things happen? Yes. Do you have to make it the end of the world? Internalise it? And let it poison you? Nope. Release it, express it, let it go. Go on with your day. Do not hoard informations.

The ace of cups is this new beginning, and this level of intimacy that is provided to us when we can learn to express our truthful desires. We are more open with ourselves. We are more open with others, and our friendships and relationships are far more transparent. This them becomes AUTHENTIC, our authentic truth, our authentic persona, as we come closer to the light of ourselves by clarifying what we do, and do not wish to put up with. 

The three of cups & the three of wands, is all about our creative expansion. Above all things, Leo seeks to free the inner child. This is lighter energy. Energy of grace, joy, newness, and opportunity.. There is so much out there for you should you expand your sights and visions. The world is truly your oyster & you must carry the confidence of the lion – wherever you go. Self esteem is all tied up in how we express ourselves. Bright colours, a loud voice, a creative flair, a quirky personality – these are all things that draw others to us, that light up our worlds. Stop hiding in fright, in the dark – it is time to emerge as who you are!
New moon in Leo ritual.

1. Run a relaxing bath – fill bath with scented candles, anointed oils, or bath salts.

2. Spend some time in the mirror looking at your own body, before entering the bath, and aloud; mention some things that you most appreciate about your physique.

3. Make a list of things that you vow to yourself in order to work on your self expression, particularly throat chakra activation – write about how you will express your concerns AS they arise, how you will respect yourself enough not to shrink your views for others, how your own well being, is just as vital, and worthy, and of value as that of others.

4. Create something. Write a poem. Draw a picture. Write a song. Write a letter – make sure that it is about how you are feeling at this present time. Focus on the energies leaving your body, and entering your creative piece (peace), as you do.

Happy healing my sacred beings ~

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position. To book one of my services, and allow me to guide you back to the soul, email me via I offer dream interpretation, tarot reading, therapy, numerology readings, and see through the eyes of the lover..
