Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

Astrology is a map and all you have do is follow the Signs. ™ 

THE MOON IS IN CANCER TODAY! Keywords: Home, family, mother, older women, nurturing, cooking, gardening, tradition, moody, feelings, over-emotional, antiques, nostalgia, emotions, intuition, tears, water, land, mining, property, your heritage, places of abode, residences, your roots, biological and psychological foundation

The Cancer Moon is moving through your 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, former relationships (ex's), organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes and dreams.

Okay, everyone just needs to be cool their jets today. This 'can' turn out to be a whacked emotional day but just remember, you are suppose to handle these planets, not let them handle you. First of all we begin the day with the Moon Void of Course in the sign of emotional and moody Cancer from 8:28 AM EDT until 7:40 PM EDT when the Moon finally settles comfortably in Leo at 7:40 PM EDT. On top of the Void of Course Moon in Cancer, we have an 'exact' 07 degree hard challenge between Venus (the planet of Love and relationships) opposing Pluto (the planet of sex, power, joint money and transformation). It's just a rough day . . unless of course you recognize this energy and choose not to push buttons or allow your buttons to be pushed. There is absolutely no reason why anyone should drive straight into this pothole (actually it's more like a sink hole) if you are aware of the energy. If you are conscious and clear on how this energy shows up, then you should be okay. No whining! Remember, you should be handling these planets, not letting them handle you. The great thing about astrology is it gives you the head's up. Using the analogy of driving . . if you continue to drive blindly along without keeping your eyes moving, checking your mirrors and wearing your seatbelt then you will meet with a delay, detour, road rage or worse. At the top of this page, I state . . . "Astrology is not Law; God is the Law! Astrology is "the rules;" and the rules are often broken." These astrological laws are laid out for us, if you do not want to follow the rules, then that is on you. The rest of us will wear our seatbelt and keep our eyes moving. This horoscope is not meant to scare you, just keep you on your toes, out of trouble and your nose clean. If you have trouble with your 'ex' then steer clear of the pothole . . uh hem, I mean, sinkhole. (winky wink) If you have financial troubles, then this is not the time to buy a latte. Instead, it is time to leave your credit cards at home and carry your lunch. After all, $4.00 a day x 5 days a week = $20.00 a week or $80.00 a month or $960.00 a year.

Today is especially whacked because not only is there an overly-emotional and moody Void of Course Cancer Moon but there is the Cardinal T-Square between Venus, Pluto and Uranus that I wrote about yesterday and then of course Venus and Pluto are in EXACT opposition to each other at 07 degrees. Venus is the planet of Love and relationships. Pluto is the planet of sex, power, transformation and joint money. This is a power play on many levels and some people are going to make the news because of it. Scandalouos! Remember this date folks because in the future those who get caught, the evidence will point back to this time period. It is scandalous, power hungry and sexual. I'll bet the porn sites will be loaded with perverted clicks under this aspect. Venus has actually been in opposition to Pluto since August 9, 2012 in an applying aspect. An applying aspect means they have been coming together closer in degrees and today they are exact. Tomorrow they will be in a separating aspect, which means they will be separating in degrees. Learn more about applying and separating aspects here!

If you still aren't aware of how you are playing your cards, then maybe this Venus/Pluto opposition, coupled with the Void of Course Moon, coupled with this Cardinal T-Square will have to show you. Come on, does it really have to come to that? You know where you need to straighten up and fly right. You know what you need to do and what you need to stop doing. Venus opposing Pluto will actually cause an individual to try to remake someone else before they reform themselves. Oh no you don't. Stop Googling and wondering about that old friend, the ex-boyfriend, the ex-husband or where your next dollar will come from for that matter, you just need to change your ways right now once and for all. Folks, I'm telling you, if you turn the mirror around and look at yourself and really see where you are going wrong and make the decision to get straight and fly right, then this upcoming New Moon in Leo on Friday, August 17th, 2012 will serve you very very well. Remember, New Moons dictate a new cycle for an entire year for the house involved. New Moons are a new beginning and they have an orb of influence for change for two weeks. Of course the time period directly around the New Moon is the strongest. For you personally, rather than as an entire population of people, the house involved for this New Moon is the house of Leo in your personal natal chart. It's just so wonderful. This is a very exciting time.

I have been letting you know through my writing on this site that I will be Tweeting a lot more astrology and this morning I really piled on a load of information about Venus opposing Pluto. Many of the Tweets came straight from one of my public Facebook page and still there are other Tweets where I went straight to Twitter and fired them off like cannons. By the way, my direct Twitter handle is drstandley. Yesterday I Tweeted a lot about the Cardinal T-Square that is also occurring today. Then there is a New Moon in Leo on Friday the 17th. Tweeting these quick 140 word sentences is going to save me a lot of writing, so I can get to the point and call it like I see it. The bigger writings will be in the upcoming e-Books that you will be able to download. Geez, I am just Loving the intense upcoming Saturn in Scorpio and North Node Scorpio energy.
