New Moon in Leo 19 August 2020

by Jo Avalon Durand

Welcome to Jo Avalon’s Moon Guided Visualisation.

Wednesday 19 August 2020 is a New Moon in Leo at 12.42pm.

The New Moon is an optimal time for purging and setting intentions for this next moon cycle. We have the energy of Leo which, as a Fire sign, is hot and action-oriented. Sometimes when I am doing a clear out, I over-think my decisions so, if I were doing another cull right now, both the Moon and Sun being in Leo means there is that extra oomph to get the job done!! Similarly, if you were wanting to get underway on a new project, this extra Leo energy would help with making that final leap into the unknown, with confidence and pizazz.

For this visualisation, 2 cards have been drawn to assist you and they are seen in the picture here:

~ The Firefly (creature of the Air) who is inspired and fantastic;

~ The Mouse (creature of the Earth) who is detail-oriented, nitpicky.

First, close your eyes and take some deep breathes, as you bring your focus into your body. In your mind’s eye, visualise a column of Golden White Light beaming down from Divine Source, directly into your Crown Chakra; seeing it move down through your body, clearing, cleansing and activating all of your cells, organs, and Chakras; all the way down to your feet, where you visualise brown roots emerging from your soles and reaching down into the centre of the Earth, seeking out the crystal with Your Name on it. Wrap your roots around your crystal and draw up Mother Earth’s energy through your roots into your body via your feet, all the while, breathing normally. As the warming, nurturing, and protecting energy from Mother Earth moves up through your body, it blends with the Golden White Light from Divine Source. Visualise a ball of light at your Heart Chakra and in the next breath, expand it to completely envelope your body. You are ready.

Focus your awareness on the ball of bright yellow light before you that has emerged from your Solar Plexus. This is your internal light that you can make as dull or bright as you choose. You discern a small flighty creature, the Firefly, as it flits here and there. Firefly represents hope, guidance, inspiration, and awakening.  It encourages you to listen to your heart and let it lead you toward truth and light. You find yourself observing your surroundings as if you are Firefly, seeking your Truth. Spend a moment visualising the Truth of something that is important to you right now.

In the next moment, your attention drops to the ground and in the darkness, you become aware of your perception sharpening to that of the earth-dwelling Mouse. Mouse represents details and taking action accordingly, as well as staying in the moment to take advantage of unexpected opportunities. Your eyes are adjusted to the gloom and you can discern all manner of things that others might not see. Looking up, you see the lights of the Firefly, flitting around in the air above you. Encouraged, you carry on with your detailed work. Spend a moment visualising and feeling the satisfaction of completing important tasks and making headway on something that is important to you right now.

In a few minutes, when you are ready, you notice your vision becoming a little blurry, and the lights in the air disappearing as you gradually draw your attention back to your present surroundings and gently move your limbs to regain feeling and awareness in your physical body.

I wish you all the best for this New Moon and look forward to sharing the next Moon Phase energy with you.

Blessings,

Jo Avalon
