New Moon in Leo: Delight Your Inner Child

This new super black moon in Leo invites us into the realm of optimism. New moon cycles are a time of fruitful darkness, a period of internal retreat, drawing us into the caves of our being. However, this new moon in Leo isn’t letting us go into the dark without first handing us a fiery torch to light the way.
