The new moon in Leo arrives this morning.
Now that Jupiter has moved back into Aquarius to join both Saturn and Pluto in the sign, the Aquarian energy that has defined much of 2021 will seem to be more pervasive than ever. Although many astrologers will try to tell you that Aquarius is the sign where we all hold hands and sing songs about peace, love and understanding, I have a decidedly different take on the sign.
I know too many Aquarius natives who will tell you the sky isn’t blue just to prove that they’re not following the crowd. They are contrarians by nature. Sometimes that’s a good thing, and sometimes that’s a bad thing.
So, what does that have to do with the new moon in Leo? For the rest of us who are living with the effects of having three of the outer planets in Aquarius at the same time, this new moon in the opposing sign ushers in a month where calling contrarians out on their bullshit will be a productive use of our collective time.
Do you know a Trump supporter who wants you to thank Donald Trump for developing the COVID-19 vaccine but then warns you against getting the vaccine? Tell them to pick a fucking side! Do you know someone who rallies against socialism while collecting government subsidies that were provided to help people during the pandemic? Tell them to shove their hypocrisy up their ass! Do you know someone who screams at the television when athletes take a knee during the national anthem, but then martyrizes a terrorist like Ashli Babbitt for getting herself shot during the Capitol insurrection. Tell them that they are rotten to the core!
Allow this new moon in Leo shine a light on the truth. Let the adage “sunlight is the best disinfectant” be your motto as you expose the obvious truth to people who are choosing a contrary position just to prove that they can. You might not change their minds with all this fixed-sign energy in the universe, but you will feel good about yourself by refusing to play along with their stupid games. Feed your ego for the next few weeks by being on the righteous side, not the right side — if you know what I mean.
