Tonight's New Moon is special because it's also a Black Moon: when the cycle of the New Moon occurs twice in one month. This moon is also a Super Moon in that it will orbit closer than usual to the earth. The New Moon's importance is to help us gear up to restart, set intentions, and propel forward.
When the moon is Super & closer to us, it affects our Earth's water tides by propelling what is called "Spring tides" - the greatest difference between low and high water. Think about this natural movement for yourself too: you're sitting in low water, marinating, resetting and then you're ready to literally Spring forward into those new intentions.
Tonight's moon is in Leo: the confident fire sign that's a natural born leader. You may find yourself riding the tides with some of Leo's passion towards a project or a person. Is this a time for you to ignite the flame & jump forward? Or maybe your time with Leo is in its darker shadows, swallowed by a bit of inflexibility and pride. Is this a much needed time to look in the mirror and balance some of that fire energy?
How to make sense of what's going on for you right now depends on your horoscope and also how in tune you are to what's going on in the universe right now. Gathering together under the New Moon brings clarity, energy cleansing and self-empowerment to the forefront.
