The New Moon in Leo is always a boost to creativity. However, sometimes we come up with concepts that may be brilliant, but we lack the follow-through to make them real.
The New Moon in Leo on August 17, 2012 is different, though, because active Mars and committed Saturn form favorable 60-degree sextiles to this Sun-Moon conjunction. Connection with the right partners and plenty of patience and persistence could make dreams come true.
See how the New Moon in Leo will affect your horoscope sign:
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your personal life gets a major boost with this expressive Leo New Moon in your 5th House of Romance and Creativity. Normally, you might be so charged up that you come on too strong and rub others the wrong way. But your maturity, restraint and sense of purpose are guided by a pair of favorable aspects from sassy Mars and reliable Saturn in gracious Libra that strengthen personal and professional relationships.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This glorious Leo New Moon lands in your domestic 4th House of Home and Family, which can encourage you to beautify your home, initiate creative activities with family members or find inner inspiration to express yourself more boldly. Favorable connections to this lunation from productive planets in your 6th House of Work shore up professional alliances and help you to establish new kinds of business relationships.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This creative Leo New Moon brightens up your 2nd House of Self-Worth, where it will probably inspire moneymaking ideas.

Investing in tools or training that maximizes your talents is another way to raise your prestige and enhance your professional future.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
This New Moon in your expressive sign is an especially powerful event. The jolt of energy that enriches your personal life can be obvious.
