Here's How The New Moon On August 8 Will Affect You If You're A Sagittarius

The New Moon on August 8 is quickly approaching, and it's set to be full of passion, creativity, romance, and luck. According to Bustle, the New Moon falls under the sign of Leo, which will have you feeling strong and confident as temperatures continue to rise outside. "Leo is connected to our self-worth, confidence, creativity, and romance sector," astrologer Ellen Bowles tells the publication. "You can feel a boost of charisma and magnetism in these types of pursuits under this new moon," she says.

Meanwhile, famed astrologers, The Astro Twins, note that the New Moon will also coincide with the Lion's Gate portal, which is considered to be one of the luckiest days of the entire year (via Mind Body Green). 

"Every year between July 28 and August 12, a portal of energetic possibility called The Lion's Gate opens as the Earth aligns with Orion's belt and the Sirius star system. The exact date of activation is always August 8," the Astro Twins revealed. "This year, the Lion's Gate opening happens to coincide with the annual Leo new moon, the date to set intentions and to tap into courage, strength, and heart-centered compassion." For those born under the sign of Sagittarius, this could be your time to shine.

Sagittarius should be open to all opportunities during the New Moon on August 8

Bustle reports that the New Moon on August 8 is the perfect time to take a risk if you're a Sagittarius (born between November 22 and December 21). Sagittarius may find themselves feeling bold and ready to plunge into something new and exciting. If it feels like there is something bigger out there for you, that may be because there is! 

With the New Moon energy behind you and the luck from the Lion's Gate, the sky is the limit when it comes to achieving your dreams. "With this Leo new moon, the big question is 'What is the next step?'" astrologer Ellen Bowles says. "This transit's fiery energy feels inspiring and slightly overwhelming with [so many] options."

Vogue notes that August is the time that Sagittarius should explore opportunities that thrust them into the limelight. This means if you're an aspiring performer, artist, influencer, etc. so now is your time to get to work and get noticed. However, if the spotlight's not for you, pursuing an educational opportunity that will lead to bigger and better things in your career is also something that Sagittarius should be ready to take on. 

It seems that Sagittarius will have a lot to think about, plan for, and put into action to close out the summer, and by doing so they might just find that life is about to change drastically for them.
