LEO – ‘I WILL / I Love’
      Artist: Josephine Wall
LEO - Fire sign. The Lover and charmer of the zodiac - could charm the birds off the trees (and male Leos are very good at charming women).  They excel in the Arts especially acting and performing as they are not shy of the spotlight, in fact they love being the centre of attention and having an adoring audience.  Leos are wonderful to have as a friend, fun and sociable and very loving. Good at working with children and young people as they understand them. Leos seek fame, and their arrogance can take them a long way, but it can also trip them up at times. They can also be lazy, wanting everyone else to wait on them. They are strong willed and very good at manipulating people in such a subtle way that folks don’t even realise how their strings have been pulled! They express themselves boldly in the world and are fearless when they are aiming for what they want. They always brighten a place up with their cheerful energy and are great to have around.
Leo represents pride, expression, romance, nobility, leadership, gambling/speculation, games, entertainment/the Arts, education, youth, drama, working with children, fame.


August may still present the odd curveball but good things are starting to emerge from what has been a trying year for many. 

Be careful what you say and what information you pass on this coming month, (is it accurate? Is it the truth?) as some folks imaginations may be going overboard in August.  Stick to the facts folks!

Also don’t allow what you see and hear to damage your psyche or your emotions.  With all that is going on in the world at the moment, there is so much misinformation and manipulation going on out there, which is deliberate, in order to undermine humanity.  As Lightworkers we cannot allow ourselves to get sucked into that kind of energy.  Our job is to keep our vibration raised and raise the vibration wherever we go and wherever we are.  So if you feel yourself being pulled down, walk away – switch off – whatever and regroup yourself. 

Words could be triggers during August, so be mindful of this.  Stay fully present to your Higher Self in a truly grounded way. Surround yourself with beauty, and be with those who uplift and inspire you.  Seek those of like-mind and together channel light to where it is needed.  Remember that you are Spiritual royalty, so keep your head and keep it high, and keep on keeping on.

Protect your Solar Plexus this month.  We are approaching the annual Lions Gate, which always ushers in powerful energies.  If the sun is out, go outside (or you can do this with the sun shining through a window/door) and stand so that the Sun is warming your Solar Plexus.  Imagine this golden light cleansing your Solar Plexus shield and charging it up.  Now breathe in and pull that strong, golden energy right through your Solar Plexus chakra from front to back so the energy goes right through you energetically.  (Many people forgot to pay attention to the back of their chakras).  You will feel strong and energized and ready for anything.  Do this as often as you need to. (Our ‘Protector’ spray mist provides a fantastic chakra shield that will last all day.  You can find it here:


At the beginning of August we celebrate Lammas/Lugnasadh, bringing a time of letting go, “the death of the old” to make way for the new. 

And we are approaching Eclipse season again with the Full Moon this month (more on that at the time).  This really will bring the endings that are needed.  Eclipses do shake things up a bit where they need shaking.  But they are not to be feared.  Whatever ends or gets shaken will be worth it.  There are always rewards with eclipses, although at the time it may not feel like it.

Many years ago I got a few shake ups during an eclipse season, I suddenly found out the house I was renting was going to be sold and I was going to be homeless again and a whole host of other crappy stuff was going on.  So when my husband walked into my life, I didn’t want to know, I had so much cr*p going on that I just wanted to sort it all out.  I told the Universe that this was not the time to start a new relationship.  The Universe said “but this is what you need right now”. And it was right.  We have been together ever since.  So ride the rough days and trust that there will be something much better for you at the end of it.  Sometimes the old has to die in order to make way for the new.  Sometimes we have to be shaken out of our complacency to make the changes that are needed.  Sometimes it can be subtle changes, like a lightbulb going on and changing the way we think about things.  Eclipses enable us to take positive action. Eclipses help us to rebirth our lives. Be open to it all.

To support you during Eclipses, why not try our NEW ‘Eclipse Support’ essence?  It contains magickal essences captured during Total Eclipses over the years.  Powerful yet supportive, this Essence helps you to stay grounded and centred as you deal with what is going on.  It keeps you connected to the Light despite any darkness going on around you.  This lovely, gentle Essence has a beautifully high vibration that will keep your own vibration raised so that you can remain positive. It also helps you to integrate your experience so that you can move forward in a balanced way.  
A useful tool to have for each Eclipse season. (Detailed information supplied with each Essence).  You can find it here;


The New Moon in uplifting Leo gives us the confidence boost we need. It encourages our creativity and getting passionate about it.  Do what lights you up, and share it with the world.  There must be something that you do that you lose all track of time when doing it, because you are so totally immersed in it.  Do more of that.
Experiencing creative blocks? Then use our ‘Creativity’ Essence, it has been helping folks to shift blocks in their creativity and helping them to manifest it in the world for many years.  You can find it here: http://www.theapothecarygarden.org/ESSENCES.html

Any changes you make during this New Moon transit will be successful.  It is a time of progress for us all (at last!). It’s an ideal time to upgrade yourself on every level. 

- Upgrade your ‘phone and technology so that you can present your creativity to the world in a professional manner. 

- Find better ways of working/living day-to-day that are more efficient and less draining on your energy. 

- Seek mentors and guides (in this world and beyond) who are waiting to step in and help you, you just need to ask.

- Do you need to get more healthy?  Clear out what is old and unused and write down a new daily programme for yourself that you will stick to every day.  (I have started doing Donna Eden’s daily routine again at the start of each day and it makes me feel energized for the day.  You can see her video here;

Most of all be patient with yourself; lasting change doesn’t happen overnight it takes time.

And if cr*p happens, roar like a Lion!  No seriously, I mean it, sometimes if we just let out the way we are feeling with a huge roar we feel so much better, it’s incredibly empowering.  (This is something I taught on my Gorgeous Goddess trainings, sometimes it can be followed by tears as it is such a good release, other times it can be followed by giggles and laughter.  I still do it from time to time – go on have a go!).

Leo loves being the centre of attention and gives us the courage to push ourselves into the limelight and world stage.  He encourages us to ‘strut our stuff’ and let the world know how creative and inspirational we are.  This is not the time to be the shy, retiring wallflower, it’s time for you to be a big, bold sunflower!

This powerful New Moon is a great time to create a new vision board – go bigger and bolder.  It’s also a great time to write your New Moon Manifestation List in great detail (I’ve gone off the term ‘New Moon Wish List’ as wishing always gives me the impression that something is too far away, unobtainable, wishing rather than getting). 

- If you want a new job, write in detail the area, location, type of desk you want, type of colleagues, hours, pay etc. 

- If you want a new relationship do the same, be very specific about what you do and don’t want.

- If you want to move home be very detailed about everything, location, quality, services, neighbours, everything that you desire. 

And most importantly start your list off with the sentence:
“Thank you Universe and Grandmother Moon for ………..” and list your desires.
And a secret Leo tip is: give that which you most desire. 

Leo is a super confident sign, so believe that you CAN have what you want and it will be so.  This New Moon gives you a great confidence boost.

I am in the flow
I am creative
I am grateful
I am confident
I am grateful for my creative gifts
I am grateful for my creativity
I am grateful for the way my life flows
I am not afraid to roar!
I trust in my abilities
I am confident about my creativity

Now don’t forget to roar!  Lammas/Lughnasdh and New Moon Blessings to y’all!
