The New Moon in Leo on August 18 is a time to dream big. This regal and passionate New Moon creates a powerful Grand Fire Trine with Mars in Aries and the South Node of Destiny in Sagittarius and aligns with Mercury in Leo. It’s an ideal time to share our desires and create a new vision of ourselves—one that is unique and complex. Because this is the second New Moon of the month, it’s also called a Black Moon, and it's extremely energetically potent for manifesting.

Here's what this means for you:

Aries

Life seems like one big Zoom party right now—times have been tough, but you’re socializing with your crew and beginning to feel like your old self again. Use this positive energy and carry the good vibes with you for the next few weeks.

Taurus

Feeling crafty? It’s time you put your creative mind to work and update your home. If you can’t DIY your own Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, then buy a throw pillow or rearrange your room.

Gemini

There’s a ton of goss swarming around you, all of which is 100% untrue. Instead of snapping back at the haters, laugh at 'em. They're just jealous of your fabulous life.

Cancer

This luminary will have a major effect on your finances. All that delivery you’ve been ordering and those late-night online orders are catching up with you. Don’t be shy—ask a friend or family member for help if you need it. They'll be there for you.

Leo

Step up your charitable game, Leo! Let your secret (or not-so-secret) superhero shine as you help those in need. Get involved with a local mutual aid group, do a fundraiser, or even start your own foundation.

Virgo

Sometimes it’s hard for you to express your feelings, and this is one of those times. But if you choose silence, you may feel like your emotions are about to boil over. Speak up, Virgo! It's difficult, but people need to hear your words.

Libra

Spread your wings and fly, bb. This luminary is the perfect time to open yourself up to new friendships. Skip your usual Zoom happy hour with your crew and join a new virtual group.

Scorpio

Make sure you focus on your performance at work during this New Moon. Your efforts could lead to a raise or promotion. People are noticing, you Scorpio, so don't hold back. You got this!

Sagittarius

Embrace the chill, Sagittarius. Sign up for a virtual yoga class or download a meditation app. Try to become inspired by higher-minded activities.

Capricorn

Feeling magical? If so, it’s time you call your squad to start your own personal coven. You’ll find that your powers are stronger together. Get witchy under this New Moon and manifest your innermost dreams.

Aquarius

It’s time to DTR with your boo, or level-up your existing 'ship. Before you run away, keep in mind that they may feel the same way. Be brave and share your desires.

Pisces

Connect with your colleagues on a personal level instead of just work. Trying to relate to them in a deeper way will allow you to get closer, even if they frustrate you from time to time.
