How The June 28 New Moon Will Affect You If You're A Leo

Not all new moons are created equal. While the new moon generally brings new beginnings, each falls in the same sign as the sun, according to Astrostyle. That means that it brings a different feel and area of focus. The June 28 new moon is in Cancer, which means that it brings a whole lot of feelings with it (via InStyle). The emotionally charged new moon will take even a Leo and turn them in a homebody. Get ready, fire sign, because there's an emotional tidal wave coming.

If your sign is a lion, you might feel a little less like your normal self during this new moon. Leos are known for having big personalities and wanting to stand out (via Co-Star). While it might not feel natural, the new moon is a great time to lean into your emotions and give yourself a reset. If you're feeling a little more like a homebody, don't be alarmed.

Here's everything to look forward to as a Leo on the June 28th new moon. Because this season could be exactly what you need to be your best self for the rest of the year. 

The new moon is a time for Leos to analyze their emotions and self-reflect

Like mentioned above, a new moon is always a time to dig deep and sit with your emotions. That can be challenging, especially for a Leo. As a fire sign, you're likely not used to sitting quietly. You're a lion, after all. But if the new moon drives you to reflect on your feelings, then take the opportunity. 

As Women & Home puts it, a Leo is used to performing, but now it's time to take a step back. "It's your time to understand your underlying motivations and emotions even better," the publication states. "Your fears, your worries, your hopes, your dreams." Don't see this a time of weakness. See it as a time to set yourself up for success for the rest of the year. Because when you know yourself, you can use your superpowers wisely.

This is also a time to be alone, Leos. We would never tell you to cut yourself off from friends, of course. But in order to self-reflect, you might find yourself wanting to be alone. There's nothing wrong with saying no to brunch if you feel like meditating instead. Meditation comes in many forms, and, as Hype Bae mentions, spending time with yourself alone is just as beneficial as sitting in meditation. The publication recommends "planning a solo date and taking the time to get to know yourself" as "the perfect new moon activity."

This new moon could feel unnatural to you, but we promise it won't last for long. After all, Leo season is coming.

It's a great time for Leo goal setting

If the Cancer energy is a little too strong for you to sit with your emotions, try sitting with your goals instead. As InStyle points out, Leo season is coming soon, so this is the perfect time to plan for how to best achieve your goals when you're feeling the most like yourself. "You'll probably be quite restless, dreaming of long-distance trips and big picture passion projects you want to achieve in the near future," the publication says. "It's time to clarify your ultimate vision."

Whether you're looking to dive deep into your career, step into your personal style, or dig into a side hustle, this is your time to plan for success. Sit with a journal and dig into to some Cancer journal prompts that center around your passions and alignment (via Wayward Inspiration). Again, this is a powerful time for you as Leo season is right around the corner, and you'll want to be ready to thrive. 

Don't be surprised if you feel like a homebody

If you find your fire-sign self wanting to stay inside a bit more, don't freak out. This is a totally normal emotion for a Cancer new moon to bring with it (via InStyle). Instead of binge watching Netflix or mindlessly scrolling TikTok, try digging into a new hobby. Leos are known for being "passionate in all pursuits," according to, and a new moon is the perfect time to experiment a little with hobbies that you've been wanting to try.

All in all, you might not seem like yourself around the new moon on June 28th, but don't be alarmed if you're feeling a little more emotional than normal. We all need a little rest and relaxation every now and then, and that's never been more true than a Leo about to be heading into their season. Use this time wisely, my fire-sign friend.
