August 2021’s New Moon In Leo – How It Affects Your Love Life

I just adore New Moons! New Moons are the best time to manifest your dream life and get what you want. Full Moons get a lot of the attention, but Full Moons are actually quite a hectic, heavy energy to work with.

There is a reason why people get a little mad around the Full Moon, because it tends to bring up whatever darkness we have going on inside, and brings it to the surface and this can often be a little hard to deal with.

This is why a Full Moon is the right time to let go of any old baggage, and with the New Moon, it is all about manifestation to get what you desire. Isn’t it beautiful how we get to work with these natural cycles to get the most out of life?

The Leo New Moon is probably my favorite New Moon of the year. Leo’s energy is all about creativity, expressing yourself, experiencing pleasure, and best of all love and romance! I always see this New Moon as a super booster to manifest your best love life. 

This Leo New Moon is happening on August 8th this year! This weekend is likely to bring a lot of fun, joy, happiness, and hopefully a good dose of romance your way!

So, ladies, you better make the most of this beautiful time because it only comes around once a year! All the signs can really benefit from this New Moon but the signs that will be influenced the most would be the fixed signs, which include Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. As well as the fire signs which are Aries and Sagittarius. 

2021 is a very big year for most of the Fixed signs, being that Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius and Uranus is in Taurus. All of you can expect a lot of shake-ups this year, and this New Moon is only going to highlight this exhilarating time for you.

This New Moon is fantastic for all of you to really put yourselves out there! Remember Leo loves glamour and shining bright, so put your best foot forward and dress to the nines, you want to grab attention. 

It is a great time for you to go on a date and spend time with your partner. It is an especially favorable time for bedroom activities, so let the wild woman inside of you roar with pleasure! And to my single ladies, I would suggest doing something creative.

This is actually the perfect time for you to create a vision board to help you manifest the love life of your dreams. Get all your magazines together and cut out any images you would like to dee come true in your life and hang it up on your wall.

Whenever you see your vision board it will help you to stay focus on what you want in your life as well as a relationship! I love making vision boards because they really help me to visually see what I want to manifest in my life.

If you’re looking to see how this New Moon will affect your sign then continue reading! Remember to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising sign to get the most accurate interpretation. I hope you all have a joyous and colorful New Moon!


This is such a beautifully vibrant month for you Aries, but this New Moon is definitely going to kick your creative juices into high gear. Expect some good, playful loving! This New Moon is especially good for your love life and romance, no matter if you’re single or taken.

New Moons are synonymous with new beginnings and because it is in the sector of your romances, this promises to be quite a powerful time for you. You get to really inject your life with some good old loving!

Perhaps the last few months haven’t exactly delivered on what you consider a good time romantically, but this is just the moment to change it all for the better. Put a little bit more effort into your appearance for the next few days, make yourself stand out so that you can catch someone’s eye. 

And for those of you already coupled it this is the perfect opportunity to inject some extra loving into your relationship. Do something romantic for your man, plan a hot date, like going out for dinner or packing a picnic. Do what you can to make him feel special. 

This is a really beautiful time for all my Aries ladies! You get to express your love and creativity in such a gorgeous and authentic way. Your passion may feel intense over the next few days, but don’t even try to dim your shine. Be expressive and let the world know how special you are.


Home is where the heart is for you over the next few days. There is nothing quite as nice as snuggling up in your comfy clothes and just relaxing and enjoying the space you call home. This doesn’t mean things in your love life are dry and slow, on the contrary!

The New Moon is encouraging you to open up your home to someone sexy. Instead of going out and enjoying a date on the town, you can embrace your domestic side and do all the entertaining at home. The perfect opportunity for you to show your man your skills in the kitchen.

You’re a hostess with the mostest! So, it is really your time to shine and have that special someone fall in love with how amazing you are in the kitchen. You know the saying is true that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. You can test this out for yourself on this New Moon!

This is also such a wonderful time to really plant your roots and feel comfortable in your space. You might want to have a big talk with your man about where your relationship is headed and solidify the connection you two share. 

My singles, please embrace this New Moon by indulging in your self-care practices. This might not be the best time to meet someone, but at least you can pour all your love into yourself and do the things you love to make yourself feel joy and happiness. Relationships come to us easily when we take care of ourselves first and foremost! 


Your playful and lighthearted energy gets a nice boost over the New Moon, Gemini. You want to be social and connect with all the wonderful people in your life more so than usual. You’re in your element and this energy feels really natural to you.

You adore connecting to kindred spirits, and this is the best time for you to meet people who get your heart pumping. There is nothing quite so exciting for you than to meet someone with who you can have a really stimulating rapport.

Those of you who are single, be sure to really mingle and put yourself out there. Your network really holds the key to some good summer-loving this New Moon. Your way with words will definitely have an impact on the way someone special sees you. 

Those of you who are in a relationship will really benefit from some open communication with your partner. It is so important for you to express how you really feel to your man. Do your best at being open and vulnerable, but most importantly let him know how much he means to you. 

Enjoy yourself as much as possible over the next few days. Invite much-needed fun and laughter into your life. Don’t take things too seriously, this New Moon is about enjoying your life as much as possible!


Stability is exactly what you need right now. You’re not looking for anything crazy or over the top in your life. You just want the people in your life to be dependable and reliable. Forget all the bells and whistles, simplicity is key for you at the moment. 

You’re truly just looking for the balance in your life, and anything that makes you feel a little crazy and unsettled just isn’t going to cut it for you any longer. Those of you who are single might feel really drawn to sensible types and men who are a little more down-to-earth than your usual type.

You want to spend time with people who have a grounding force in your life, not people who cause you to feel all kinds of chaos and conflict. Take note of the men you date and see who has a calming presence on your soul. This is exactly the energy you need right now.

For those of you in a relationship, it is best to really amplify the sensuality in your romances. The two of you could really benefit from going on a hike and spending time in nature. Perfect excuse for you to request a foot rub afterward. 

See what grounding practices you can invite into your life to help you feel calm and more centered. This will have a really wonderful impact on your relationship and the way you respond to whatever craziness comes along.


This is your time to shine, Leo, and you know how much you love shining! You get to be more radiant than ever over this New Moon. Expect to turn quite a few heads. You need to play up your physical appearance and have everyone looking at you – this is a must!

Your heart is full of passionate excitement and you are ready to let someone special know how you feel! Remember, your birthday month is always going to ensure many blessings come your way. So, use this extra bit of luck to manifest the love life you have always dreamt of.

This New Moon will really help you to get in touch with your feelings and illuminate exactly what you want from your life, including your romances. This is a new beginning for you, a time to decide who you want to grow into in the next six months.

Know what your intentions are, be clear about what you want and go after your dreams. This advice is perfect for my single ladies as well as those of you lucky in love. This New Moon is here to support you in creating the life you have always wanted to live. 

Think about how you see your life unfold for the next six months to a year and get really clear about your vision. Commit to yourself to live a life with more fun, pleasure, and joy. When you follow what makes you happy, everything else will fall into place effortlessly.


Taking a time-out isn’t a bad thing, especially for your sign, Virgo. You’re always go-go-go and on to the next project. Working hard is your second name! But this New Moon is really encouraging you to take a step back, reflect, and recharge. 

You need this quiet time to slow down and get back to yourself. Take this moment to try and see the bigger picture, you need this moment of rest before your birthday season starts rolling in by the end of the month. 

Ask yourself what you are ready to let go of so that you can create a beautiful, loving space over this New Moon. You might feel ready to manifest a new lover into your life or to build a deeper more spiritual bond with your partner.

It is so important to share a special spiritual bond with a partner and to know that the two of you are walking the same path together. Ask your man if he would be happy to start meditating or doing yoga with you. This will be an absolute game-changer in your relationship!

For those of you who are single, now is the time to say a little prayer out into the Universe about the special soul-mate connection you are looking for. Switch your focus from lack and loneliness to excitement at the prospect of meeting your dream partner. 

This New Moon is going to inject a fair bit of spirituality into your lives, so get ready for some healing!


Teamwork and collaboration are front and center for you during the New Moon, Libra. Your sign loves to be around people as the social butterfly of the Zodiac, so this has to be one of your favorite times of the year. 

You’re feeling lighthearted and stimulated by all the people around you. Getting together in a big group is just what you need right now to get your creative and passionate juices flowing. Keen to meet someone new? Well, ask a friend to set you up with someone they know you would adore.

Single Libras you might be surprised to see one of your oldest friends in a new light. This New Moon might be the thing to spark something with someone you have known forever. Keep an open mind and see where this energy takes you.

My Libras who are coupled up will benefit from spending time with friends. It is really good to observe what your loved one is like amongst your friends. Does it feel like a match or is the energy a little awkward? This can say a lot about the potential longevity of your relationship.

Make sure to spend your weekend doing a group activity. This New Moon is really pushing you to be around people and like-minded individuals. It is so important not to neglect your friends when you get into a relationship, so doing something with everyone will help you to keep everyone happy.


Work, work, and more work! Remember all work and no play can make you a very dull woman. Try to find the middle ground during the New Moon between working hard and enjoying yourself. You need to celebrate your achievements!

Make plans with your special someone to paint the town red. You have achieved so much in the last few months and need a good old celebration to remind yourself what all these sacrifices are for.

This is a fantastic time for you to realize what you need to prioritize in your life. Are you looking to get further in your career or to build a deeper connection with your partner? Just remember, you’re an amazing woman and you get to choose both!

Just be smart about the way you divide your time. You don’t want any one part of your life to feel neglected. It is important to follow your dreams, so have an open discussion with the man you are dating and find out how he feels about your career ambitions and if he is willing to support you with your dreams.

It is no fun being with a man who is going to be resentful of you when you choose to focus on work over him some evenings in the week. Just make sure the two of you get on the same page. Communication is so important, and this will help you to make adjustments and compromises.


Wanderlust is calling your name this New Moon, Sagittarius! The last year and a half have been quite trying on the Zodiac’s free spirits, but as things seem to ease up, freedom seems more possible than it has in a long while.

There is a sense of optimism in the air this weekend and you can do pretty much everything you have ever dreamed of. The world is your proverbial oyster and you’re ready to spread your excitement and joy with the rest of the world.

Whether you are single or in a relationship, it might be a fantastic idea for you to get out of town and spread your wings wide, but make sure to take that special someone along for the ride or you might meet someone on your adventure.

Keep an open mind and don’t have any expectations, but remember not to act callously. Sometimes your motto of honesty is the best policy can use some finessing. It is important to speak truthfully, but think about what you say because your words and your actions tend to cut rather deeply.

Remember the people you have made promises or commitments to. Don’t just run off with anyone just because it feels like fun or freedom, there are other people who might hurt in the process. Only make spontaneous decisions if you feel like you can say you have done so with a clear head.


Yearning for intimacy is at an all-time high this weekend, Capricorn. You want to feel close and loved by a special someone. This is the time to manifest the depth you have always been craving in your relationships.

You want fire and passion, so now is the time to ask the Universe to deliver on your desires. One of my favorite manifestation tools is writing a letter asking exactly what I want, and then burning the letter. The fire adds to the magic and helps my desires come true a little quicker.

This might sound really out there, but I promise you, it works! It doesn’t matter if you’re in a relationship or if you are single, we could all use a little extra depth to the intimacy we feel in our lives. 

Embrace your lusty side, and honor your carnal desires. It is so empowering to ask for what you want when it comes to your most intimate bonds. Are your needs being met? And what do you feel needs to change for you to feel the intimacy you so deeply crave?

Do the little letter writing fire ritual this weekend and see if things improve for you. This whole process promises to be totally transformative and healing. So, get ready for quite a wild ride!


Your independent spirit is looking for a tad more togetherness over the coming New Moon. Unusually your mind is fixated on the idea of partnerships and what it means to collaborate with a life partner.

You might find yourself drifting off, dreaming about what it would be like to be in a conventional kind of relationship. You know what you’re like, you prefer the odd and unpredictable, but this New Moon has you feeling like you might want to couple up. 

No matter what you choose, you will always have the last say when it comes to any choices in your life, but especially so in your relationships. This is an opportune time for you to review exactly what relationships mean to you and how you would go about defining them. 

You might come to realize that you want more love in your life and you might feel ready to embrace a more serious commitment. Sometimes you get so stuck in your head, so you need to remember that relationships are a full-body experience.

You need to be willing to commit yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, otherwise the relationship won’t work. Ask yourself what changes you can make to be fully present in a relationship and if you would feel comfortable making these sacrifices.


There is a spotlight on your everyday routines this coming New Moon, if it sounds boring it doesn’t have to be. Ask yourself if you have been taking care of yourself and your self-care practices? Or have you been acting a little lazy?

From my experience, men love to be with women who put a lot of effort into themselves. You know that saying, “if you don’t love yourself, then you can’t expect someone else to love you?” Well, there is some truth to that.

Would you want to be with a man who didn’t put care into his health and wellness? I think not. We are automatically more attracted to people who put in the effort into their well-being. It subconsciously makes us think that they would be good partners because we expect them to show us the same care.

So, if you have been slacking by eating a lot of takeout or not getting in a couple of work-outs each week, then now is the time to shake things up and get back to your routine. Not only will you start to feel better, but your confidence will also receive a boost. 

This weekend, make sure to come up with a plan you can stick to. Even if it is something as simple as walking 1000 extra steps a day or having a morning smoothie instead of cereal. When you put love and care into yourself, the whole world is bound to sit up and take notice. And this can only influence your relationships in a positive way!
