FRIDAY - AUGUST 30, 2013

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 GEMINI TODAY! Keywords: flirty, flighty, fiesty, the chameleon, variety is the spice of life, colorful (all colors), spontaneous, communication, transportation, siblings, neighbors, mental abilities, mental telepathy, the mentalist, thinking, brainiac, intellectual, puzzles, basic education (grades 1 thru 12)

The Gemini Moon is moving through your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country. It also rules neighbors, siblings and extended siblings such as cousins, nieces and nephews.

I sent out an update to those of you who had previously ordered my e-book, “Understanding and Using the North and South Node in Your Natal Chart”. If you did not receive this update, pop me an e-mail and I'll get it right to you.

The day begins with the Moon Void of Course in Gemini and continues on its Void of Course path until it reaches 03 degrees in Cancer at 1:38 PM EDT. For a full explanation of the Void of Course time period, which I calculate between 27 degrees of one sign up to 03 degrees into the next sign, please read the first three paragraphs on the main Void of Course page. This will seriously aid in your understanding of what this time period looks like. I liken it to the same type of energy when you are moving from one home (residence) to another. People, boxes, packing, phones ringing and emotions running high. Also, I have uploaded the Void of Course Calendars for October 2013, November 2013 and December 2013 for your viewing and useful pleasure.

While the day begins with the Moon in Gemini, it will be moving into Cancer this morning. Since I calcuate the Daily Astrology Chart wheel at 5:00 AM EDT, that is why you see the Gemini Moon present and the first two paragraphs above being about Gemini. By 6:33 AM EDT the Moon is already moving into Cancer at 00 degrees but it will not be out of the Void of Course period until 1:38 PM EDT this afternoon. So the energy moves quickly in Gemini, a bit scattered and fiesty. You will be able to tell when the Moon moves into Cancer because the Moon naturally rules the sign of Cancer. The Moon rules moods, sensitivities, emotions and feelings, which is why the sign of Cancer is the moodiest and emotionally sensitive sign of the zodiac. Folks, you will really need to keep a handle on your emotions during this time period. Come on now . . you can help it. This really depends on what 'you choose' to control you. Yep, you choose what controls you. Personally, I don't like giving up that much control to something or someone who could rob me of my joy. Even so, it happens and it is up to me to snap out of it. When it comes down to it, we still ultimately decide who or what controls us emotionally. It doesn't matter if that is someone who cuts in front of you in traffic or someone close to you who rubs you the wrong way. And believe me, the person who cut you off in traffic doesn't even know you are angry, they are just going about their day. If you stay angry, that's on you and you lost emotional control and handed it over to someone who doesn't even know they have control of you. That happens in all kinds of relationships as well, using traffic was just a perfect example.

So the nutshell for today as this Moon moves into over-emotional Cancer, SNAP OUT OF IT! Invariably I will lose a friend on Facebook when the Moon is in Cancer because it's eggshell walking time and I don't walk on eggshells that well. (winky wink) I'm pretty straight forward with my Capricorn Moon, which opposes the Cancer Moon, BAM, and then someone takes something too personal. Just know that this energy exists and be keenly aware of it. Someone is going to lose emotional control, just don't let it be you.

One final note before the Cancer Moon horoscope below, the motto for Cancer is, "I feel therefore am," which should be channeled intuitively, not over-emotionally. Certainly our emotions have a strong piece of intuition but there is a big difference between just being emotional and sourcing our emotions on an intuitive level. Seek to know this difference within yourself. You'll be glad you did.

Today's emotional Void of Course Cancer Moon will affect your 4th house of home, family, childhood and the domestic sphere. The advantage for you in the area of home and family is trusting your gut. The Cancer Moon motto is, "I feel therefore I am" so you may as well take advantage of it. Use this Cancer Moon to trust your feelings on what you need to change with regard to your daily regimen and habits at home or with your family. If you the head of the household so to speak, then set the example so those in the home and family can follow your lead. Someone buys the groceries in the house and if it's you, then you are caring a lot of power with your purchases. Let your feelings guide you on change in the domestic-sphere. In addition to adding more Void of Course Moon Calendars, your Monthly Horoscope is updated with your Mars Opportunity because Mars moved into Leo. Also your Weekly Horoscope Reminders have some added information as well.

You can catch me on social media. I have two Facebook (FB) pages. One is under Dr. Loretta Standley and the other is under Loretta Standley. My Dr. Loretta Standley FB page is linked with my Twitter feed where often times I get on a roll and make a lot of quick astrology posts. Sometimes I also get on a roll Tweeting without posting them through Facebook. My Twitter handle is drstandley.
