First I will address the Sun in Leo because the house that Leo rules in your personal natal chart is where you should be acting and reacting just like a Leo, which is why this information is so important. The the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Leo naturally rules the 5th house of acting, drama, theater, sensuality, children, procreation, parenthood, motherhood, sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, recreation, lovers, procreation, leisure, hobbies, games and sports, adopted children, places of amusement, child-like behavior, the playground, fun, joy, bliss, pleasurable pursuits, betting, gambling, casino's, lottery, gaming, games, gamblers, the ruination of one's credit, golf courses, films, cinemas, circuses, college students and the buildings, dating, courtship, intimacy, one-on-one connections, the heart, heart specialists, Love affairs, romance, Love-making, one's Lover, nightclub performers, parks, parties, one's passion, picnics, pastimes, the income from buying and selling of property, income from real estate, financial speculation, wagers.

This Leo energy has the motto of, "I will therefore I am" and is the "Giver of Life." Leo's have such tremendous personal power (willpower) that I always say, "If you want a mountain moved, then call a Leo because they are incredibly strong both physically and mentally." For this reason, Leo's absolutely HAVE TO stay fit and keep their body strong and I'm talking muscle-wise. Leo's must be in tip-top shape or their Light goes out! Haven't you seen Lion King and the difference between Mufasa and Scar? Oh what a crappy attitude and weak body will do to a lion! Think about it because it is the Sun that rules Leo and the Sun gives Life to everything. The Sun brightens up the sky and it Lightens us up. Leo wants to be admired and appreciated. In fact, I will go as far to say that Leo would rather be appreciated than admired any day of the week, although being admired isn't so shabby either. Leo's have a natural sunny disposition that is coupled with happiness and lots of trivial and lively pursuits, as you can see from the rulerships in the paragraph above.

Since Leo does rule the 5th house of God's playground and who has been put in charge of ruling God's children, often times Leo energy can be a bit too serious for the playground thereby demanding followers instead of suggesting a game of follow-the-leader. In this way the Leo becomes the bossy kid on the playground instead of the popular fun kid on the playground. Leo needs to make certain that they never fall in the bully role demanding loyalty. Leo's are HUGE on loyalty but it must be earned as with everything else. Even though Leo is the ruler of children, it is rare to see a Leo with a load of children. It would be more common to see a Leo with no children or possibly one or two children.

Leo's are highly romantic and if they are coupled up with a non-romantic partner, this can just about put out their Light. Romance, dating and intimacy are very important stimulation to the Leo. They are also dramatic and rather flamboyant. Simply stubbing their toe can be incredibly dramatic in showing their dramatic self-expression. Sometimes the drama is just a bit overkill.

For all Sagittarian's, the Sun affects your 9th house of the higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations, international commerce, dreams, visions and teachers as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Sagittarius would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Capricorn 2nd house, Aquarius 3rd house, Pisces 4th house, Aries 5th house, Taurus 6th house, Gemini 7th house, Cancer 8th house, Leo 9th house - Sun in Leo, Virgo 10th house, Libra 11th house and Scorpio 12th house. Read more about How Horoscopes Are Written Here! For your personal natal chart that has your exact birth date, time and location, then the flow from the 1st house would according to whatever Sun Sign is your Rising Sign. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The Sun in Leo is trine (easy and effortless energy) your 9th house of the higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations, international commerce, dreams, visions and teachers.

You may run into more foreigners right now than you have in the recent past. Keep in mind when you run into foreigners, foreign language films, foreign food or anything else that is foreign to you, this is because your mind and perspectives are expanding further than your homeland. You may suddenly seek a more spiritual understanding of the world around you. You may be asking yourself why a certain circumstance is happening to you and what you are suppose to learn from it. The thought, "Everything happens for a reason," may come to your mind.

This aspect will be teaching more about philosophy and subjects that are foreign to you. The great thing about this is you will be in a position to understand and comprehend more complex subjects. This is the house of higher education and you may contemplate, seek and find seminars or lectures that will expand your views. If you are involved in a court case or legal battle, it is best you settle out of court. Scroll down to read your Mercury Opportunity.

First I will write about Mercury in Cancer and then the last couple of paragraphs will be about how it impacts your sign. Remember from the above paragraph, Mercury rules the mind, how we communicate and our reasoning power.

Mercury in Cancer indicates where the mind (Mercury) is ruled by the emotions (Cancer). As the Church Lady would say, "Isn't that special?" And these emotions can be deep from a biological and psychological standpoint. That's because Cancer rules the biological and psychological foundation of the home and family. Basically, these are childhood emotions that seep back into the mind and dictate your response. What you really need to focus on during this time is your emotional responses including your emotional actions and reactions because they came from somewhere and under this influence it is going to be psychological or biological. It's your deal, not their's.

This planetary influence has the memory of an elephant. If you know a Cancer, then you know that their memory is solid as a dang rock! Scorpio never forgets a slight but more on a grudge level, whereas Cancer never forgets . . . PERIOD! The cool thing about this is, if you have Mercury in Cancer in your personal natal chart or if your child does, then that is a fantabulous tool to use when studying. All you would do is associate an emotional memory to whatever it is you are trying to remember and kabamma-slamma, you'll remember. If you used nuemonics or some other study tool to remember it would make things a whole lot easier to associate an emotion to it. You could also use a 'brain dump'. When you take your test, take a few moments to dump your brain on the back of the test writingn down all of the things you know such as equations, definitions and pictures and then you have your notes right there to flip over and look up the answers. At the same time, individuals with Mercury in Cancer have the ability to learn through osmosis where information just seeps and leaks into their brain. By the way, osmosis is where molecules pass through a semi-permeable membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration. Man oh' man this is one heck of a learning tool to use. Even if you don't have Mercury in Cancer in your personal natal chart the energy is still present and moving through the house in your chart ruled by Cancer and you should use it. Individuals also have the ability to learn through subliminal states, which means it is unconsciously learned but it can be used consciously. It's crazy cool.

This placement also causes individuals to react emotionally to something that has an emotional appeal. Those with this placement will cry at a parade, a little boy standing in the rain waiting for the bus or someone winning on a game show. Whatever the influence is, it is easily felt through this placement. Geez, if only advertisers would contact me about how to go about creating their commercial. I would be telling them to make certain they reach the depth of the consumers emotions and they will sell whatever they have hand over fist. This is an incredibly sensitive placement where subliminal advertising will get you to buy, especially if it has anything to do with the home or family. The sign of Cancer rules home, family, domestic affairs, land, mining, real estate and food.

There is also stronger thinking toward the family. The family will be everything during this transit and will drive the actions of each of us in our own way. If it's Good, it's going to be very Good and if it's bad, then the individual needs to get hold of their emotions because it could feel very very bad. I'm just sayin' folks, be alert with this transit so you will know the reasons behind your emotional actions and reactions and your motives for acting that way.

Mercury in Cancer is moving through your 8th house of transformation, sex, legacies, insurance, spouse or partner's money and other people's money, spirituality, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances, wills, surgeries, and astral experiences.

There is a heightened focus toward the use of other people's money during this time. You have an opportunity to couple up on joint ventures or negotiate a deal where you are able to use other people's money as an investment. Profound and mystical insight comes to you during this time where you contemplate living your Life to the fullest. Something said to you in the recent past suddenly starts making sense. Someone will tell you something that impacts the way you think. It's all Good! When you get that intuitive message, you will need to act on it in order to grab the opportunity. Jealousy, insecurity and sex may be on your brain. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. Venus is the estrogen in the chart. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Cancer and then the last couple of paragraphs will pertain to your sign. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart think "Love of" whatever sign is involved. Venus in Cancer means the Love of family because Cancer rules the home, family, domestic affairs, the mother, nurturing, food, land, mining and real estate. Cancer is the sign of the childhood and the biological and psychological foundation of our lives.

This placement is absolutely devoted to the family. More than anything, those with this placement in their personal natal chart would rather be with their family than anyone else. It doesn't matter if it's shopping, vacation or hanging out at home, Venus in Cancer enjoys and Loves family. Also, those with this placement in their personal natal chart seek out marriage more than a full-blown Libra who naturally rules marriage and partnerships. This is because stability in the home and family mean everything to Venus in Cancer. Libra is more about companionship and working as a team. It's all about stability, feeling Loved and secure with Venus in Cancer. This placement also creates a drive to own a home, which means there will be more people seeking to own a home under Venus in Cancer. Those with Venus in Cancer in their chart, owning a home is a major goal for them. Typically the home is a place of activity, socializing and beauty. There is always a project at home they are working on that helps the individual channel their Love because after all, it's for the Good of the family. They are the ones with the big flower beds and welcome mat at the front door.

Emotionally this is a very romantic placement that is deeply sensitive. They are gift givers and enjoy receiving gifts as well. It's about as 'Gooey-Love' as you can get. It's really not about PDA (public display of affection) as much as it is a 'display of affection'. They need expression of Love sent to them and they need to give it. Being so deeply sensitive, this placement does get its feelings hurt rather easily. The individual with this placement may seem tough on the inside but they are a bag of mush on the inside. Moods having to do with Love fluctuate like the water sign it is in, which is Cancer, a water sign.

Cancer is a maternal sign, where its counterpart (the opposite sign of Capricorn) is the paternal sign. This means that Venus in Cancer is very maternal and if placed in a man's chart he will have more maternal instincts than paternal instincts. This could easily be the stay-at-home dad or the extremely involved father on the sidelines who never misses a game. When placed in a woman's chart she will be extremely maternal and devoted to the family including husband and children. Even if you do not have Venus in Cancer in your personal natal chart this transit is still moving over the house in your chart that is ruled by Cancer and it will influence you toward family. You may even find yourself going back to the place of your birth, childhood or visiting your parents during this time. Check your your Monthly Horoscope on this date for more information.

For all Sagittarian's, Venus affects your 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or partner, joint resources, insurance, legacies, other people's money, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances and wills. It also includes, surgeries, spirituality, astral experiences, the metaphysical realm, transformation, regeneration and covers death, sex and an element of legal matters as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

If you are single, secret Love affairs are not going to work for you. Any relationships that you are engaged in should always be on the up and up. You may even be secretly attracted to someone, yet have not shared or expressed this attraction to them. Either way, it is a secret. This attraction may be very intense. If you find yourself communicating and flirting via e-mail with someone you really do not know, there may be secrets shared without having full knowledge of the other person. This will expose you on a whole new level where you will learn more about yourself, especially your strengths and vulnerabilities.

Those of you who are already coupled-up, your physical relationship may become more intense, passionate and magnetic. The relationship has the ability to take on a deeper meaning that will have a powerful long-term effect. This could make changes in you that cause an emotional transformation. The 8th house is about transformation and regeneration; therefore, your relationship can change for the better if you choose to move in that direction.

This 8th house is a money house so you may have more opportunities for money through banks, lenders, wills, inheritance, stocks, bonds, taxes, windfalls, bonuses and yeah . . buy a lottery ticket. Hey, you may as well work all the angles because money is in your favor, especially with Jupiter moving through Cancer until August 12, 2014.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Sagittarius would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Capricorn 2nd house, Aquarius 3rd house, Pisces 4th house, Aries 5th house, Taurus 6th house, Gemini 7th house, Cancer 8th house - Venus in Cancer, Leo 9th house, Virgo 10th house, Libra 11th house and Scorpio 12th house.

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Scorpio and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mars is aggressive, impulsive and ram-rod's its way through whatever it wants and it will do without your permission and quite comfortably I might add without a guilty bone in its exo-skeleton body. Mars does not take no for an answer. It's more like, "Oh yeah, well watch this!" Mars naturally rules Aries but it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio, so you see, Mars is very very happy here. It's like Mars has come home from a long period of being away. Pluto is the modern day ruler of Scorpio but this Mars in Scorpio is sah-weeeeeeet because it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. Of course you know me, if you have been coming to this website long enough, I can find great things and great outcomes in any aspect. It's all in how you choose to look at it. Every single aspect or planetary placement has positive and negative influences and your job is to choose wisely and handle the energy and not let it handle you.

Mars in Scorpio brings about intense desires, so whatever your desire is, then go for it. If you want to lose some weight . . GO FOR IT! If you want to go after that job . . GO FOR IT! If you want to connect with that certain Love interest . . GO FOR IT! Mars in Scorpio does not take no for an answer. The most hard-core placement for Mars is when it goes into Leo and that's because Leo is the strongest of willpower, so Mars in Leo will literally move a mountain. That's the kind of energy boxer's want. Well, Mars in Scorpio is the second most intense and hard-core placement for Mars. This is 'umpf' with purpose! Mars in Scorpio is relentless and intense. Mars in Scorpio has purpose and meaning. Mars in Scorpio has FOLLOW-THROUGH. Dang, if you want to play better golf, then you will probably follow-through on your swing. No kidding folks, Mars in Scorpio has follow-through so that you will complete your task, mission, chore or project. BAM!

Mars in Scorpio reminds me of 5 Navy Seals who held off an invading foreign army. No kidding! Are you pumped up yet and ready to rumble with Mars in Scorpio? Mars in Scorpio is pumped up and ready to rumble. It reminds me of a boxer standing in front of a mirror pumping himself up, rolling his neck around, jumping up and down warming his body up, punching at the mirror and the next thing you hear is the crowd roar because he scored a knock-out punch. I mean this is intense!

Folks, I do want to remind you that Mars in Scorpio brings about a powerful sex drive and can really get your mind a bit pre-occupied. For those of you who have someone in your back pocket, while hanging on to someone else, this can really get you into trouble so I'm firing a warning shot here. You will likely get caught if you sleeping around or even thinking about it. So, either knock it off or just break up with one of the individuals. Don't say I didn't fire the warning shot. You cannot hide anything from Scorpio energy because Scorpio is the detective, researcher and 007 secret agent of the zodiac and it will find out. Don't even attempt to lie to Scorpio energy because Scorpio knows your lying before you even tell the lie. It's spooky.

When Mars in Scorpio is afflicted, as it will be with the Sun, Jupiter and the New Moon on July 26, 2014, any anger associated with this energy can lead to incredible resentment, hostility and grudge holding. Mars in Scorpio will also form an exact square to Jupiter on August 1, 2014. In fact, Mars in Scorpio can be so domineering with emotions that it can literally beat another person down into servitude and submission. Now listen, those of you in tough relationships right now, it does not have to be that way. In fact, if just one person in the relationship eases up just a little bit, then this affliction can stop that tough energy in its tracks. Picture a tug-of-war match between two people. What happens when one person let's go? Don't just ease up on the tension because that continues the tug-of-war, you have to literally let go and take your hands, attitude and mind off the argument and it will stop. Just like that it will stop because the other person does not have an opponent on the other end of the rope to continue the war. It doesn't mean you give up, it just means you don't play. THAT my dear little mentators is how you beat an afflicted Mars in Scorpio at their own game, especially if you have Mars in Leo in your chart. Mars in Leo is actually stronger that Mars in Scorpio and can beat Mars in Scorpio at its own game simply by having the willpower to do so and 'not' get engaged in a game of tug-of-war. Visualize the release of that rope and whoever it is, or whatever it is at the other end of the rope and the energy will fall away under its own weight.

Mars in Scorpio is also very possessive, jealous and security driven. There is one thing an individual should never do and that is 'try' to make a Scorpio jealous. Do not light that fire because it will not go out and you will regret it. Scorpio energy is not neutral . . it's not gray . . it's not so-so, it's not moderate . . it's not wishy-washy . . it's not we'll see . . it's not maybe . . it's not indifferent . . it's ALL OR NOTHING! Folks, this energy can take you to the heights of spiritual awareness or the deep dark depths of moral degradation and indecency, it really depends on what motivates your spirit . . . or should I say what you allow your spirit to succumb to.

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Scorpio is moving through your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

Whatever you have tucked away in your subconscious mind may come to the surface so that your conscious mind can deal with it. It's a Good thing when old stuff resurfaces so that it can be cleared and you can move on with your Life. When the hidden realm reveals things from your past, do your best to deal with it even if it means owning up to it. That was then, this is now. I prefer to call the 12th house, "the character building house" because it is here where you will learn and grow the most. If you find yourself being held back because of your past actions, then do your best to gut through it. The 12th house is the area of self-undoing. Now that you know this, you can choose to clear it instead of letting these old patterns undo you. Scroll down to read your Chiron Opportunity.

Chiron in Pisces turns Retrograde at 17 degrees on Saturday, June 20, 2014 at 8:46 AM EDT until November 24, 2014 at 7:44 PM EDT at 13 degrees. This is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. The subject matter below in your 4th house is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Sagittarian's this involves your 4th house of home, family, domestic affairs, the mother, land and the biological and psychological foundation. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
