SUNDAY - AUGUST 25, 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 squaring (challenging) your 10th house public life. This house also rules fame, notoriety, occupation, career, ambition, government, military, chief executives, business life, goals, ranks, political position, status, standing in the public eye, position in society. It shows your standing in the community and social status. It can reflect your attitude to parenting.

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.

If you missed yesterday's writing on the Grand Cross/Square that is present in the Daily Astrology Chart then just click back a day and play catch up because this writing will help you grasp how to handle any Grand Cross/Square from here on out when it occurs. I wrote to THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX and when you look outside of this box you will see Grand Trines in the Water Signs and Grand Trines in the Earth Signs. The Earth Sign Grand Trine will only get stronger. This reminds me of the Scripture - 1 Corinthians 10:13 - "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." Now listen folks, if you weren't thrown any challenges in Life, how in the world would you be able to practice your skillset or practice what you 'think you know' so well. Let's just see about that and see how you handle this! The way out of this box is to think outside of the box and in this case you can actually see the way of escape on paper, or on your screen. That's why I Love astrology, you can see this on paper! Folks, do not get caught up in your own self-undoing that you cannot see these easy ways of escape. The Grand Trines in the Water Signs are about 'feeling' intuition that has to do with emotional sensitivities. What do you feel? The Grand Trines in the Earth Signs are about connecting intuitively on a physical level through touch, tacile and kinesthetic sensation. How does it physically feel? Can you also see in today's Daily Astrology Chart that there is a Yod present pointing directly to Venus in Libra? A Yod (pronounced Yawd) is also called, 'The Finger of God', which says, "Look right here! Here is the answer!" Ahhhhhh, another way of escape is what I see. A 'Yod' is bold, direct and blatant telling us exactly where to look for added insight and answers. Since the 'Yod' is pointing to Venus in Libra, then read more about Venus in Libra in your Monthly Horoscope so I don't have to repeat it all here.

Taurus is fixed sign, which is associated with and fixed in the middle of the season. The other fixed signs are Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius. These four signs are set in their ways and rarely budge, unless of course they are poked with a stick or hot poker. Why does it take something like that in order to instigate change? Why not make things easy on yourself and embrace change before it is forced upon you? These signs do not easily adapt to new situations and it will take time. This is why gradual change will work better than sudden change. Shaking the ground under a Taurus will only make the bull/cow stampede. At the same, sometimes that is exactly what is necessary in order to get them to the place that they need to be.

For all Leo's on the planet, this affects your 10th house of career, public image and recognition outside of the home and family. This stubborn and hard-headed energy today could make it a challenge to get your way, much less get the recognition and attention you desire. Keep in mind this Taurus Moon does square (challenge) your sign so make certain you aren't trying to force something that just won't work today. All you will end up doing is frustrating yourself and roaring at everyone else, which is not very attractive. Control yourself Leo. Remember how old you are and then act like it. Also I have updated your Monthly Leo Horoscope with your Sun and Mercury Opportunity. The Sun and Mercury moved into Virgo.
