Happy New Moon in Leo Dear MoonLights!!

Wowzers, how is everyone holding up ?? There has been a lot of energy circulating about!! Have you been picking up on it? I know I have!! Between Mercury in Retrograde (ends on Aug. 18th), all the Eclipse energy (last eclipse of the year Aug. 11th) plus the Moon energy especially in Leo (our current astrological location)...and the Lionsgate Portal (activated on 8/8) ...I'm sure feeling it!! Lots and lots of strong, stuff going on!!

Remember to breathe!! Relax though any challenges that might come your way! You got this!! When all else fails... contact me for a Crystal Chakra Balancing!! Hopefully you recieved my Free Gift Email (Guided Mediation for Beginners) I sent out earlier this month? Make sure you try it out, especially during this time! If you didn't get it... Contact me, or just Subscribe to my website by going to my homepage and scrolling to the bottom will do the trick!

I ended up getting the sweetest Thank you recently I have to share because it touched my heart!!

"I wanted to say Thank you for the free guided mediation. I absolutely love, love, love!!! I have been using variations on YouTube, depending on when I meditate. I must say, it’s always nice to feel at home with your guided meditations and with your soothing voice. Thank you for the time spent creating and thinking of others needs and sending this out as a gift. It is hard to quite the mind at times and one struggles to do this with all the noise of the world. It’s is nice to have a crystal in my pocket so to speak of an audio of your voice in a guided mediation. To mediate is a gift, and to be guided as one meditates is truly a gift. Thank you for helping me find balance and calming my mind. This journey on this planet 🌎 can be a wobbly one at times. Hahahaha!! Sending you love light and Huggies. Thank you." -Nichole

Thank you Nichole for sharing your experience & kind words!

Please give mediation a try, like Nichole... you willl see how fast it will enhance your life when you start meditating!!


As our Moon goes Dark yet again, it's a time to plant seeds of intention!! What do you want to manifest? Goals, Wishes, Dreams... it's time to make it all come true! Take this time to look back at your last New Moon Intentions and see how fast you have made things materialize!!

Also, even though we don't see Lady Luna, her power is still there! Make sure to cleanse and recharge your Crystal friends tonight!!

Now... onwards to the energy behind this New Moon in Leo!!

What to Expect When the New Moon is in Leo...

Get ready for a burst of energy coming your way!! On top of that burst, you will be feeling more optimistic about the things going on in your current life! You will also be feeling more bold and like you can do anything you set your mind to (which is true)!

Be generous with your kind words to others, as we all know...what goes around comes around. If your seeking out the praise of appreciation, it's best to show yours first! It's a good time to get social!! Go out and enjoy some good company.

People Born When the Moon is in Leo...

Due to the fact that Leo is ruled by the Sun as it's planet...the Leo's won't be affected as much as others with the above information. You are a person who is open, you enjoy attention, and you are a born leader! You know how to keep people entertained with your stories.... as you always have one to tell. It's also very easy for you to impress others. Just remember balance is key. Being aware of your traits will help you to move forward with more ease!

Do you know your Moon Sign??

Partial Solar Eclipse...

As I have talked about in prior blogs.. Eclipse always come in pairs...they are best buddies!! They alternate between either Lunar then Solar Eclipse or visa versa.

We are heading into our 3rd and final Eclipse of the Season. This time, we are having a Partial Solar Eclipse! The last Eclipse that happened was a Lunar Eclipse on July 27th, 2018.

Here, where I live in Southern California the Solar Eclipse will NOT be visible!! In fact, it won't be visible for any of the United States this time around.

The people lucky enough to see this Partial Solar Eclipse event will be the following:

Greenland, Iceland, Parts of Canada, Norway, Finland, Parts of Russia, South & North Korea, Mongolia, and Beijing China.

If you are in the parts who get to witness this lovely activity... make sure you NEVER look at the Sun, it will damage your eyes!

The Moon's energy will be stronger than normal because it will be closer to Earth! Since this is a Solar Eclipse this time around... it gives the stage more to Luna and thus making her energy amplified during this time. With that being said, our New Moon energy will help move along our intentions we set on the 11th with even more power than normal! It packs a powerful punch during this time. If you are looking to give your Crystals an extra powerful recharge, set them out during the day time & night!!

With a Partial Eclipse what happens is the Moon comes between the Sun & Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun's glowing disk. Basically, they will Not be in perfect alignment, thus resulting in a "Partial Solar Eclipse".

Did you know???

~Solar Eclipses can only happen on a New Moon!! However, not every New Moon brings about a Solar Eclipse. They usually only happen 2-5 times per year.
