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 Libra 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 will remain in the sign of Libra for quite some time simply because it is going to go through a Retrograde period from March 1, 2014 until May 20, 2014. Mars usually remains in a Sun Sign for about 6 weeks but this time it will last 7-1/2 months. Having said that, Mars will remain in the sign of Libra until July 25, 2014.

Mars in Libra is in its 'Detriment'. The 'detrimental' placement is like a feisty child throwing a temper tantrum in the grocery store. Basically, it acts out inappropriately at the wrong time and wrong place. This is because Mars naturally rules Aries, which is Libra's opposite sign, so Mars is in its opposite natural placement. This Mars in Libra transit is going to be Good, great, bad and ugly throughout its transit in Libra.

This would really be a great transit most of the time if it didn't need so dang much approval from others. Mars by nature is aggressive and assertive, which is something that Libra is not (although they can be under certain circumstances) and that is once they have been revved up enough. It doesn't take much to rev up an Aries but once Libra gets going, they are relentless. Libra wants balance, harmony and to sing 'Kumbya' so much that they will compromise too much. This causes them to over-compromise, which then leads to imbalance, which is exactly what they didn't want in the first place. Arrrghhhh! If you are looking for cooperation during this aspect, it may be there sometimes and then completely disappear. During this Mars in Libra transit we will experience and opposition with Uranus in Aries on December 25, 2013 (remember, Mars naturally rules Aries) and it will also square Pluto in Capricorn on December 30, 2013. Toward the end of December 2013, Mars will be dealing a few blows . . blow by blow. BAM! Take that! What the freak! Things were going so well and then the last week of December 2013 came along. Honestly, I wouldn't be boozing it up this New Year's Eve. It would be best if everyone just took a chill pill and chillaxe on the couch.

Libra just wants to be in Love and wants everyone else to be in Love. Libra is very feminine and Mars is very masculine. This energy can show up two very different ways. It can look like the 'seemingly' beautiful, graceful and elegant woman who has a chip on her shoulder. When she turns around she's smoking a cigarette, cussing like a sailor and has a can of bear with cigarette ashes on top of the beer can. On the other hand, this Libra energy can boost the Mars energy with some grace and refinement. Remember, Mars is aggressive and it is also selfish as Aries is THE MOST selfish sign of the zodiac. Where Aries thinks of me, myself and I; Libra thinks we, us and our. Mars in Libra can bring some 'couple awareness' to an individual. Aries (Mars) has a tendency to say, "Me, me, me! Enough about me. What do you think of me?" Mars can actually be a little tamed under this Libra influence. It won't be without a few challenges when Uranus in Aries gets ahold of the energy and opposes or when Pluto in Capricorn squares it. Believe me, after 7-1/2 months with Mars in Libra, it will have to succumb to the harmonious energy and soften itself. Too much aggression makes others fight, stand back or just plain walk away. None are these are great choices but it is what we will be dealing with during this 7-1/2 months Mars in Libra stay, especially at the end of December 2013.

I can just see some high level conversations going on and then all of the sudden the energy shifts and arguments begin. This is some high heat and if you know this ahead of time, then you won't even engage in converation with difficult people or conversations with your mate that could lead to disaster. There is going to be a lot of moral chatter going on and what's so funny is that the people who shout the loudest are usually the ones who donate the least or volunteer the least. If you listen closely to what these individuals are saying, they may not really be concerned with what the subject matter is, except for the fact that the subject matter might impact them in some way and THAT my dear little mentators reveals the selfishness of Mars. It really wasn't about the subject matter at all, it was how it impact them. Keep in mind, the 'them' could be you. You could be one of 'them' that I am talking about here. OUCHY!

When Mars in Libra becomes afflicted (challenged) when it becomes aspected by the opposition of Uranus in Aries on December 25, 2013 or when it becomes aspected by the square of Pluto in Capricorn on December 30, 2013 there will likely be arguments, fights, disagreements and even separation of relationships. Folks, I'm telling you, this is very challenging and I would put the booze and partying on hold and have that quiet evening at home to celebrate New Year's 2014. Start off the year on the right foot instead of the wrong energy. Did I mention that Pluto is the higher octave of Mars? Yep, it sure is and this deals a double whammy of Mars energy to mix. It's like Mars and Pluto will be fighting with each other. With that kind of aggressive energy, who really wins? Seriously!

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Libra is moving through your 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes and dreams.

With such an aggressive planet moving through your 11th house, this is a great time to work in cooperation with others by working in groups, teams and organizations. You may have to put your own ego in check during this time because this is a learning experience and no one person knows everything all the time. You will get more accomplished right now if you work in cooperation with others. This means if you need help, then ask for it. If someone else needs help, do not wait to be asked for assistance. Volunteer to help before you are asked. Working as a team player will work in your favor during this time. 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.
