14 August Week Ahead Horoscope | ✧*:Shocking New Moon in Leo!

We have a New Moon in Leo this week on the 16th of August around 7pm, square Uranus in Taurus. New Beginnings are usually indicative of new moon periods. During this period, we can experience a feeling of needing to go inward to reflect on what is being manifested currently in the external world. Uranus in Taurus is the disruptive energy surrounding finances and economic markets at this time, whilst also awakening the feminine to the Power she really holds. If we have been shocked into a restful period due to utter exhaustion recently, there is reasoning for this, often just after periods of darkness and quiet rest we finally feel ready to face the day and fight for what is right.

Lovers, families and general finances are being disrupted most right now, with Venus currently Retrograde. As the Moon decreases in light to the Dark Moon/New Moon phases, the veil is thinner and intuitive guidance becomes stronger. With 4 planets and Chiron, retrograde at this time, inward feelings and inner guidance will be stronger than ever. With the Uranus influence, there may be challenges coming up, due to flashes of insight and downloads awakening us to intense change. Due to intuitive guidance that is being received around this time there may be a fear of change coming up. This entire process may hurt, depending on how resistant you are at this time.

This energy can provide awareness of all challenges surrounding you at this time, especially to do with relationships, finances and work. Then around 10am, the Moon will join with Venus Retrograde, whom is currently combust as well, in Leo.

The rays or light of the Sun are blinding our true values and desires for success. With venus combust, to then be conjoined with the Moon, there may be dramatic emotional displays that need to come up to be processed. The change may be overwhelming or what needs to happen may be especially obvious so you can make the change for the better, for the rest of Venus Retrograde.
