TUESDAY - JULY 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.

THE MOON IS IN TAURUS TODAY! Keywords: money, practical, stability, music, possessions, self-worth, morals, values, romance, slow to decide

The Moon in Taurus 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.

While this Taurus Moon is present and the energy is moving a bit slower, this is the perfect time to introduce to you a wonderful aspect that is approaching. There is an "applying aspect" coming up between the Sun in Leo trine Uranus in Aries. Leo and Aries are fire signs and remember, all signs of the same element (fire in this case) are always trine to each other. Trine is easy and effortless energy. An applying aspect is when the degrees of two planets are coming closer together. An 'exact aspect' is when they are in the exact same degree. A "separating aspect" is when the two planets that were applying, then became exact, are then separating in degrees and moving further apart from each other in degrees. So right now the Sun in Leo at 07 degrees is trine Uranus in Aries at 12 degrees are in "applying aspect" coming closer. This coming Sunday, August 4, 2013 at 10:49 AM EDT the Sun in Leo and Uranus in Aries will be exact at 12 degrees 23 minutes. If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart, I did note under the section called, "Chart Points" which aspects were applying or separating.

For Gemini's the Sun in Leo trine Uranus in Aries aspect is occurring between your 3rd and 11th houses. This is the 3rd house of communication and 11th house of groups, social media and friends as you can see from the flow of your Solar Chart in the last paragraph below. For you personally, look at your personal natal chart to see which houses are ruled by Leo and Aries.

A trine aspect shows an easy flow of energy and is generally considered favorable. Trines reveal themselves as talents and advantages. Trines can also show areas which are the lines of least resistance. This means that you could be letting talents and advantages slip by unnoticed where you may lack motivation. Having said that, can you see why the massive Grand Trine in the Water Signs or the occurrence of all the Grand Trines and sextiles that occurred yesterday forming Kites can make for lazy and lethargic individuals. If trines are the lines of least resistance, then many people will lack motivation and will not challenge themselves. In other words, trines are so easy that many people will do what is only required, nothing more, nothing less. I remember seeing this for the first time when I was in 8th grade. Yeah, I said 8th grade! I was building a tree house with a friend and I asked her to hand me the hammer as I held two boards together with my other hand. She picked up the hammer and didn't even straighten her elbow to hand it to me. Frustrated and sarcastically I said, "Do you think you could stretch yourself a bit here so I don't lose hold of the boards? GEEZ!" She was only doing the bare minimum. That my friends is a perfect example of trine energy where you can ride the coat-tails of others who are working harder and not apply yourself.

This trine between the Sun and Uranus produces a highly progressive outlook on life. It definitely shows maximum leadership qualities. This trine helps us see the big picture, although it is based on our personality and outlook on Life. This is a wonderful time to exploit and expose your talents, while also recognizing and admitting your flaws and shortcomings. In other words, it's important to keep your ego in check. One problem with unsuccessful people is they do not recognize their flaws because it's always someone else's fault. This trine between the Sun and Uranus helps keep you open-minded to others ideas as well as your own ideas.

Uranus naturally rules Aquarius, which is THE MOST inventive and innovative sign of the zodiac. This is a wonderful time to pursue yourself 'out of your ordinary'. The Sun naturally rules Leo, which is the leadership sign of the zodiac. With all of these Grand Trines present, coupled with sextiles, this is the time to pull ahead. This is the time to be creative, innovative and risky in the most wonderful way. PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE! Uranus is the planet that rules flashes of intuition. The ideas are coming fast and furious. WRITE THEM DOWN so you don't forget them. Re-invent yourself. Re-invent your personality. Move your furniture around and give yourself a new look in the home. Get a new hairstyle. Throw away those clothes that are way too young for you. Dress for success. Change your lipstick color. Get rid of that nasty negative attitude. I wouldn't be sitting around waiting for something sudden to happen, this is the time to make things suddenly happen. This is the perfect time to invent something, pioneer something or tap something within yourself that you have not yet tapped. DO IT! GO CRAZY FOLKS, GO CRAZY! Lose your mind to your wonderful self. Enough yakking it up in social media how someone did not live up to your expectation, especially if you cannot live up to your own expectation. Knock it off . . . reinvent yourself and stop expecting others to reinvent themselves for you. This is not about others, it's about re-making, re-inventing and re-creating your SELF!

And above all, ABOVE ALL, keep your re-invention secret. You do not need to announce to the world, especially on social media, your re-invention game plan. Those who need to announce their every move, every emotion and reinvention game plan are probably just talking 'lip service'. Until you can bring YOU or your IDEA to physical manifestation, then keep it secret while you are reinventing. Folks, this Uranus energy is fast, like lightning. This is a decision. You will either do it or not. This energy is so wonderful and supportive that if you seriously make the change, internally and externally, then you will likely see something wonderful occur in your Life so fast, so sudden and lightning fast that it will make your head spin. GOT IT?

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.
