The new moon in August 2021 falls at 16º Leo Decan 2. The main aspects of the new moon are the lunar square Uranus. It also includes a magical yod to Mercury and a fairytale, but possibly deluded, Venus to Neptune. All very inspiring as we shall see! The New Moon tarot card is the 5 of the wands which is dramatic, competitive and exuberant. The healing crystal I have chosen is that Carnelian.
The new moon August is stamped “royal” everywhere. The moon in Leo Dean 2 resonates especially when we play a very queenly, behind the scenes, strategic role. This new moon will make us warm hosts who will take control of any social situation. We make sure that all guests are looked after. The energy is great to organize people and events so that the flames of enthusiasm and sympathy forge long-term alliances.
New moon Leo Decade 2
A good word to describe the energy of the moon in Leo Decan 2 is “gracious”, although in some cases it can be more like “gracious gracious”! with whom we want to court favor.
However, the new moon on the 2nd dean is great for supporting the arts and protecting children. The protective influence of the great mother bear of Ursa Major is strongly felt in this deanery, and this reinforces the maternal aspect of the new moon energy.
The moon soothes the roaring energy of Leo Decan 2 a bit, but we could consider this Decan “Mouthy”. Those who are touched by this new moon energy will be especially open. This new moon will make us fearless in our deliberations, so expect some heated and interesting debate during its operation.
What does the new moon in August 2021 mean for YOU?
The new moon in Leo in August 2021 falls in the sun / horoscopically: 1st house for LEO, 2nd house for CANCER, 3rd house for GEMINI, 4th house for TAURUS, 5th house for ARIES, 6th house for FISH, 7th house for Aquarius, 8th house for Capricorn, 9th house for SCHÜTZE, 10th house for SCORPIO, 11th house for LIBRA and 12th house for VIRGIN
Jupiter rules this decade from Leo. The combination of Zeus with the Lion King creates someone who enjoys power and is very happy to give orders. Those who are ignited by the Leo New Moon are then accused of domination. At the same time, these “authoritative” people will be wonderful at organizing when most people cannot be disturbed.
You can count on this new moon to cut the crap out of any chaos instead of just playing around politely and not wanting to appear rude. A Leo Dean 2 New Moon makes hard love extremely well, but sometimes makes enemies because of it. The lion’s roaring mouth combined with the super nanny energy of Ceres will never gloss over.

New moon fixed star ~ Dubhe
The new moon aligns with the fixed star Dubhe, which makes it even more of a Mary Poppins / Supernanny moon. Dubhe is the alpha star in the constellation of the great bear Ursa Major. It is one of the two front stars of the Big Dipper, easily seen in the sky. Robson sees Dubhe as ‘destructive’ and says Merak can love “Command and rule”.
The 1st century astrologer Manilus shows how these qualities work in a positive light, and I don’t think the energy is always destructive. Rather, it tames those who might be destructive. This is where we find Leo’s leadership qualities as the bears are close to the celestial pole. Bernadette Brady says this about the moon on Dubhe: “To give another one’s strength and support. Drawn to a nursing profession. Want to help others 
New moon square Uranus
The new moon is square Uranus, which is the conflict between personal freedom and overly authoritarian parents (read Governments). There is a risk of being overwhelmed and the nanny state going into full swing. For us personally, this moon can activate childhood trauma and bring it to the surface for healing.
At the new moon we could make the connection between our upbringing and our political beliefs. Are we rebelling against an authoritarian father if we are looking for a libertarian solution? Do we long for a political system that promises security when we grew up in a chaotic household with divorce and confusing stepfather-stepmother changes?
New moon August 2021 astrology
My keyword for the Uranus square of the moon was “womb eviction,” which sums up the disruption of traditional cozy family unity. The most obvious interpretation of this aspect is being abandoned by the mother so that the child never feels that he can count on support or comfort in the adult world. These subjects develop a strong independence from an early age.
Recent events have left everyone in a state of confusion and uncertainty. Any rifts within a family unit have become even more apparent during the forced bubbles that have stifled many of us.
New moon yod aspect pattern
At the new moon we have the opportunity to grab some freedom and run with it. We also have a Yod aspect pattern that points to Mercury. (Ignore the fact that it is on the fixed star Marina! Someone bought it for me as a birthday present and its coordinates are 23º Leo.)
A yod, consisting of Mercury quincunx, both Neptune and Pluto, provides a very magical and focused energy on this new moon. Hence, it is perfect for sowing some seeds of intent in relation to independence and taking full responsibility for your life. Venus versus Neptune alerts us to tendencies to use love as a drug. Love affairs can distract you from really working on creating magic from within, rather than magic from the outside.
New moon August Summary 2021
Leo is a very romantic sign in general; it resonates with the 5th house. If we are single and looking for love, could we use our creative talents to attract our soulmate? We could put together a collage mood board of all the places we’d love to see with this future lover.
I know this all sounds a lot like “Law of Attraction,” but anything that looks positive and uplifting with passionate, romantic colors will let that vibration flow into you every time you look at it. Like attracts like! This Urania-flavored Leo Moon is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with your creativity.
The healing crystal I have chosen is the carnelian because of the carnivorous bear energy of the star of this new moon. The lion looks beautiful, but it can be an ogre. So fight like with like! Carnelian gives us the courage to face creepy big cats in all areas of our lives. Its orange / red color combines the joy of orange with the wild vitality of red. This crystal protects you from envy and abuse. Carnelian also helps pull you out of your rut when you feel stuck.
