MONDAY - AUGUST 26, 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.

Over the past several days I have written a handful on the current Grand Cross/Square and threw in some info on the current Grand Trines in the Water Signs and Grand Trines in the Earth Signs. I think it's always worth it to click back a couple of days to reinforce any new information that I have introduced to you, especially if you consider yourself a student of astrology. The Grand Cross/Square you see on today's Daily Astrology Chart will only be present until Wednesday, August 28, 2013. I described in detail this Grand Cross/Square in Saturday's Daily Horoscope.

As challenging as a Grand Cross/Square can be, I mentioned yesterday how we are always given a way of escape and then talked about the Grand Trines in the Water and Earth Signs. You see folks, it really depends on what you want to focus on. Remember in all of my charts, the challenging lines are in red and green and the easy and effortless lines are in blue. So when you download the Daily Astrology Chart for today it really depends on if you will focus on and think inside the box or if you will focus on what is outside of the box and think outside of the box. Outside of this box are multiple Grand Trines in the Water and Earth Signs. Go ahead, click the link and test yourself to see what your eyes focus on . . the blues or the red lines. Do you see all of those sextile lines (blue dashed lines) connecting the trines? One more sextile line (between maybe Jupiter and the Moon or Mercury) and that would have been a full blown complete Star of David. I did however include in the Daily Astrology Chart for today another wheel at 7:00 AM EDT that shows that one needed sextile to create a Star of David where Jupiter sextiles the Ascendant/Rising Sign in Virgo. A few minutes after that the Star of David is no longer present with that last sextile but at least you can see that it was present for a brief period of time. All the same, the trines and sextiles present provide plenty of easy and effortless energy to make our way out of the box. All I'm saying is that if you think outside of the box (the Grand Cross/Square) you will see all of this easy and effortless energy to help you. How you think and what you see makes all the difference in the world.

The Moon is still in Taurus today, which has a fixed and unmoveable nature. It is one thing to be firm, it another to be stubborn. Taurus energy serves us very well because it is cautious and steady, which is just what we need before making a big decision. Remember, the lunar cycle begins with rambunctious and impulsive Aries and then settles into the placid bull Taurus for a reason. This energy is supposed to steady us and help us get grounded before we progress forward. You want to be able to regain your composure before the lunar (Moon) energy heads off into Gemini, then Cancer, then Leo, etc. Taurus is practical and it is cautious. Taurus does not like the rug pulled out from underneath them and typically need a head's up first. For instance, it's best to give a Taurus notice such as, "We are leaving in 30 minutes." Then a follow-up, "We are leaving in 15 minutes." Then another follow-up, "Okay, we are leaving in 5 minutes." Then you can say; "It's time to go. We are leaving now." By the time the Moon rolls into Gemini, the energy is really going to be ready to go and won't need any notice. The mere suggestion of going anywhere will cause Gemini to be sitting in the car waiting excitedly on you, long before you even grab your keys.

For all Leo's on the planet, this Taurus Moon affects your 10th house of career, public image and recognition outside of the home and family. You are likely to dip your head down, flare your nostrils and push full steam ahead today. Notice if your nostrils start to flare today and do what it takes to calm yourself down. Make certain that you do not let others get 'the best' of you. Think about what this means. If you choose to be angry and spiteful to anyone on the planet, then you have voluntarily given up your personal power and they have thereby gotten 'the best' of you. Never voluntarily or consciously give up the best of you. Anger is pretty much proof that you gave up a piece of yourself. OUCHY! You're better than that Leo! Also I have updated your Monthly Leo Horoscope with your Sun and Mercury Opportunity. The Sun and Mercury moved into Virgo.
