THE MOON IS IN LEO TODAY! Keywords: Leadership, bossy, children, generosity, dramatic, ego, royalty, physical strength, playful, demanding, strong will, fun, sunny disposition, the stage

The Moon in Leo is moving through your 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or business partner, joint resources, support from other people, 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 or endings (rebirth), sex and an element of legal matters.

As you may have heard or read, we experienced a New Moon in Leo yesterday at 5:50 PM EDT. The New Moon in Leo continues on through today until 11:56 PM EDT. Yesterday horoscopes were crammed and over-loaded if you would like to click back a day and feast your eyeballs on some important information. It's important simply because this New Moon 'new beginnings and fresh start' influences your Life for an entire year. The theme of this New Moon is 'self-improvement and re-invention of the self'.

Yesterday I talked mostly about the strong will and physical strength of Leo, practically roaring to you to get off your thumbs, stop kidding yourself and make a difference in your own Life. Basically no more excuses full of contractions such as can't, won't, couldn't, etc. The mileage that you can get out of this New Moon is just phenomenal. By the way, "yeah but" does not work under this New Moon either.

Today I would like to hammer home the intimacy factor of Leo because this is also very important. See this Leo energy enjoys closeness. It's not so much physical closeness, but yeah that too, but closeness on an intimate (one-on-one) level. Intimacy is private, it is cozy and it is closeness. Think of intimacy as into-me-see. It is that kinda of closeness, one-on-one. Leo's typically like to nuzzle faces and get up close and personal. Think of the big cats (lions) and small cats (kittens) how they like to nuzzle and rub their face up against your face, leg or chest.

Speaking of chests, Leo rules the heart. They have a huge heart and are often very generous, almost to a fault. As I stated yesterday, Leo naturally rules children, child-like behavior, the playground, romance, intimacy, Love, joy, bliss, fun, pleasure and creativity. Think about the Love for your children, it is pure, undiluted, complete and absolute from the moment they take their first breath. In fact, when your child was born, you probably could not even fathom Life without that child. That is pure and instantaneous Love without any question marks surrounding it. I remember when my grandson was born they had to whisk him away and into the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit). A bit later when my daughter was able to physically hold him I will never forget her words. They placed him in her arms and she said, "Oh my God! I Love you so much!" Ohhhh, it's a tear-jerker to this day thinking about the purity of that Love. I knew that the Love I felt for her the minute I first held her could never be lost, taken or broken and she was feeling the same thing. It is a Love that will never leave me. Awwwwe! By the way, she is Leo and this was her little cubbie.

Folks, we all have the capacity for Love on that intimate (into-me-see) level. This Leo New Moon is not only about self-improvement and re-invention of the self where your 'will' is concerned, "I will therefore I am", it is also about self-improvement and re-invention of the self where your Love is concerned. Meaning, how you Love. I'm a firm believer that when God calls us back Home to Himself, there will be a question posed to each of us that might sound something like this, "How well did you Love?" We all Love but how 'well' did we Love is the question mark. After all, God is Love and He would know. Right?

As you move through this New Moon in Leo, it is asking you to source the Love within you and bring it to full manifestation. If you are feeling Love, it wipes out crudeness and rudeness. This Leo energy rules romance, Love, Love affairs, joy, bliss, pleasure, romance, courtship, dating, procreation, intercourse. Leo also rules children, child-like behavior, playgrounds, playrooms, circuses, picnics, resorts, entertainment, entertainers, parties and party supplies. It also rules games, gambling and financial speculation, which is why on my Facebook and Twitter yesterday I announced it was the perfect time to buy a lottery ticket for the Powerball tonight. If you are not on my Facebook or Twitter, then you missed it but we are still under the influence of the New Moon in Leo, so I would head out and buy that ticket!

All in all, this Leo New Moon is about Love, fun and joy. Think 'self improvement and re-invention of the self' in the way you express and show Love. Leo also rules self-expression and creativity. What are you creating in your Life? What are you producing? What are you influencing through your behavior? How much Love are you showing through your communication efforts or social media postings? What are you creating in your Life through your Love? What does your Love look like? Love has devotion and loyalty connected to it, which is expressed in the sign of Leo.

This is the time to get your Love groovy back and be the expression of Love that you would like to see reflected back to you. I'm always a bit blown away by the negative self-expression of people either out in public or in social media. No one will ever convince me that negative self-expression and the lack of a Loving centered self is attractive. Again, think 'self improvement and re-invention of the self' in the way you express and show Love.

When it comes to relationship compatibility, remember there are 131,760 astrological types. That's why simply matching up Sun Signs just isn't enough or throwing all of one Sun Sign in a basket and calling them bad just isn't fair, it's judgmental. In a female’s natal chart – the description of the Sun, Mars and the 7th house in the natal chart will describe the perfect man for her. In a male’s natal chart – the description of the Moon, Venus and the 7th house in the natal chart will describe the perfect woman for him. For same sex couples, the person who has more female qualities will take on the description of the female and the person who has more male qualities will take on the description of the male. The Compatibility / Synastry Relationship Reports that I write match up each of your planets, to their planets. It tells the Good, the bad and the ugly. True compatibility is ultimately determined by you because only you would know if you have matured through some of your old, sad and tired behaviors that didn't work for you or are no longer working for you. Any planet of yours that has an aspect to any of their planets will show up on the report, such as if your Moon squares their Sun. Or if your Venus trines their Sun. Now you will exactly what challenges your relationship and what you can work on if you are 'willing'. By the way, aspects are trine, square, opposition, sesquisquare, quincunx, sextile, etc. I always suggest going through the report with a yellow highlighter and a pink highligher. Highlight the things in yellow that you want to shine Light on and magnify and then highlight the things in pink that you want to soften and play down. Now go get your Love groovy back and be the kinda of Love that you want reflected back to you.

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.
