Your 2022 Leo new moon horoscope

     Look what the cat’s dragging in from the cosmos… On July 28, we have our seventh new moon of 2022, this one in gutsy and flamboyant fire sign Leo (a.k.a. The Lion; a.a.k.a. The Golden Child; a.a.a.k.a. the JLo and Ben Affleck of the zodiac). 

     If you’ve read this article, then you know that new moons are primo days for setting intentions and growing your goals. And the 2022 Leo new moon is no exception. This July new moon wants you to be like the Lion and roar about your strengths, creativity, and special spark, while also recommitting to your divine purpose. Talk about fancy! 

     In addition to the conjunction between the Sun and Moon in Leo, Mercury in Leo squares off against Uranus and the North Node in Taurus before the latter celestial objects conjoin on July 30. This means that something unexpected could happen on this new moon that changes your daily routine or thoughts. There’s also an increased hunger for individualism and independence. So, if you’ve got a ball-and-chain– be they spouse (who’re you, Henny Youngman? Take my wife, please!), outdated tradition or curse on your spirit –you might feel immense pressure to divorce it, run from it or remove it from your life.  

     What is that one special goal / achievement / ambition that you desperately desire and know you deserve? Dare to be dramatic in your new moon intentions – it’s the only way to get what you want. 

Of course what you might want depends entirely on your Sun and Rising sign, so without further ado:

Your 2022 Leo New Moon Horoscope

Aries ♈

     The Leo new moon has you feeling creative, competitive and confident. There’s no better way to satisfy your cravings for fine arts, competition and ego-stroking than with a game night. That’s right, challenge loved ones to a vigorous game of Trivial Pursuit, Uno or Charades, then revel in the joy of kicking their asses. Again and again. That, or you can binge “Blown Away”, a glass-blowing competition show on Netflix…  

Taurus ♉

     The Leo new moon brings a sudden and passionate interest in your home, family and past. Ancestor’s olden traditions could be on your short-list. You may even go full-grandma and start gardening for a few hours, knit a new tankini or set about to re-make Nan’s chocolate zucchini bread recipe. That, or you could find a new flashy apartment and say sayonara to your fam and all their weird recipes… 

Gemini ♊

     The Leo new moon puts your focus on writing, speaking and connecting. Yes, you know you’re a whiz with words, but does the world? If not, you might wanna set the intention to attract more followers and help spread the word of your genius. If you are already a world-famous writer with a bevy of followers, can you help a fellow Gem out? I’d like to be famous too. Thanks… 

Cancer ♋

     The Leo new moon urges you to get creative in your budgeting and money-making schemes. Past lusts for luxury may have put you in the red, but you can go back to black with a few NFTs. Better yet: What hobbies or natural talents do you have? A knack for knitting? A secret bbq sauce recipe? Set the intention to monetize these gifts and market the hell out of yourself… 

Leo ♌

     The new moon in your sign reminds you that it’s high time you shine on your audience. This may mean you commit to achieving all the goals you’ve been aching to achieve– just to show everyone you can. You might also update your look with bangs or another equally daring / dramatic hairstyle. Whatever your new moon intention, set it passionately and purposefully, and wait for the crowd to say WOW…  

Virgo ♍

     The Leo new moon wants you to rest, recover and nurse your creative talents back to health. So, go underground (not literally of course): Turn off notifications, put up a “do not disturb sign”, and steep in peace and quiet. Doing so will help you realize the usefulness of being unproductive. I know it sounds lazy – because you’re obsessed with maximizing your productivity – but try it before you deny it…  

Libra ♎

     The Leo new moon brings a social media opportunity to broaden your audience. Maybe you reach out to the public on TikTok with a heartfelt post about art, love or theater. Or maybe you (finally) advertise your pet art/love/theater project to friends on Facebook. If your long-term hope/wish/dream is massive success for this project, set the intention to share these aspirations with your nearest internet supporters… 

Scorpio ♏

     The Leo new moon has you engrossed with your career. It might be that you have an important meeting, interview or pitch to deliver. If so, let this lunation fill you with the confidence to showcase your spark and pursue your professional passion. Don’t shy away from a self-aggrandizing promo. Seriously, summon your inner Hulk Hogan or Macho Man and say “Ohhhh yeahhhh, brother!” (or sister, depending on the crowd)… 

Sagittarius ♐

     The Leo new moon puts adventures and your big-picture ambitions center stage. If it’s been your year-long dream to become a yogi, lawyer or deacon, you might just sign up for YTT, apply to law school or volunteer for vacation bible school. That, or you book a two-week-long trip to Hawaii, Rome, Colorado or another Leo-ruled location in the world (Texas, maybe?) to realize your passion for vegan food trucks…  

Capricorn ♑

     The Leo new moon brings an opportunity to investigate your joint (i.e.: borrowed) funds. Grants, loans, stipends, bitcoin stocks, debts and/or inheritances could all come into play. (You and Cancer could collab on an NFT and make millions.) So, set the intention to accrue more – unless it’s debt, you don’t wanna accrue more of that – and go big on your mutual investments– especially if the investment is yourself…  

Aquarius ♒

     The Leo new moon shines a light of opportunity on your business and romantic partnerships. You could set the intention to attract your perfect personal/professional soulmate. Or maybe you aim to manifest a meeting with that special person who’ll go to WWE live events with you? (Just make sure it’s not Vince McMahon.) Friendships are really more your bag, so you could focus on attracting another one of those… 

Pisces ♓

     The Leo new moon has you fixating on your daily grind. Those side hustles close to your heart deserve some extra attention. Why? Because they are the very hustles that will get you attention. So, set the intention to boost productivity and progress. Or maybe you wanna focus on your health? A new wellness routine– Wednesday morning hot yoga, Crossfit on Fridays, the Gogurt-only diet –is a great intention too…
