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 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 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation.

Today we will experience a New Moon in Leo at 14 degrees at precisely 5:50 PM EDT this evening. Yesterday I wrote an introductory-load on this subject matter, so make certain you click back a day to get a refill. This is really just an incredible New Moon in the sign of Leo because Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun. Remember, a New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are in the same sign, same degree (conjunct), so in this case, the Sun and the Moon are both in Leo at the exact same degree.

Let's focus on the Sun in Leo for a minute here. The Sun is not only in the astrological calendar month of Leo right now, the Sun is actually Leo's ruling (home) planet. Every single Sun Sign has a ruling (home) planet and the Sun just happens to be Leo's. When the Sun is in the sign of Leo, this is when the Sun is the strongest. The Sun represents Life force and vitality. The Sun is the 'Giver of Life'. Imagine a Life without the Sun, then there would be no Life. Zippo, none, nothing, zero, gone! In other words, Life without the Sun is dead. This is why you will never hear about a Leo entertaining death or the end. It is rare that a Leo will ever entertain the mind with their own death, much less anyone else's. Leo's Love Life!

Having said that, this energy brings about such vitality, vim and verve that it has strength, both physical strength and inner strength, that it is unmatchable. When that much Life force is present, there is an animation, a presence of enthusiasm and invigoration, that is both contagious and infectious. When you want a mountain moved, you call a Leo and I guarantee that mountain will be moved come hell or high water, it's moving! What makes a spirit come alive is creative self-expression. The spirit was made to produce, build and create, not just sit there. The spirit wants to bring something forth and spring into Life. Think about the plants and how they grow toward the Sun. Once the Sun rises and is lit up then everything turns toward it.

The Sun attracts! Think about your kids or when you were a little kid and drew pictures of the Sun, it always had a smile face on it because the Sun makes us feel happy and alive. It just seems all is better when the Sun shines. For this reason, Leo's have a natural sunny disposition. It is only natural that we are attracted to the Sun.

The Sun is huge, it is dramatic and at times it can be blinding and too much to handle. When Leo energy is channeled inappropriately then it acts out and burns. Leo naturally rules children, child-like behavior, the playground, romance, intimacy, Love, joy, bliss, fun, pleasure and creativity. All of these things are fun, lit-up types of energy, which is exactly why it is so important to channel Leo energy into happy and sunny filled energy. If this energy is fed straight into the ego, then it will end up burning us and we wilt inside. We shine from the inside out, not from the outside in.

New Moon's are powerful energies that are activated for a two-week period from the date of the New Moon and it is this two-week activation period that can and will last us for an entire year, until the next New Moon in Leo on July 26, 2014. Remember, Leo is physically strong and strong-willed, so don't tell me that you can't do it. If you want to, then you will. I know a quadriplegic who drives and goes to work every single day. Where there is a will, there is a way. The motto for Leo is, "I will therefore I am." The question is, will you? What will you? What will you agree to? What say your will?

If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart, then look at the "The Houses" section that I included and read all about the house that is ruled by Leo. The motto, "I will therefore I am" along with all of this energy that I just described should be brought to Life in this area. This is where the Sun and Moon are shining both sunbeams and moonnbeams on this house this very minute. If you happen to have an Interception in Leo, which means that Leo does not rule a house cusp in your chart, which means it is sitting between two house cusps, then look to the Sun in your chart to bring out this "I will" energy. Quite honestly folks, when it comes to "I will," you either will or you will not. "I can't" usually means "I won't" or some other contraction of an excuse. YES, you can!

This New Moon is a new beginning and a fresh start. Go stand in front of the mirror and tell yourself, "I will . . . . " Smack yourself across the face and wake the heck up. Splash some cold water on your face and get those eyes open. LIGHT UP! When you see a Leo get their picture taken, they always look straight into the camera. This is showing their courage and they will look you straight in the eye. Go look in the mirror (the camera of all camera's) and face yourself. If you need to throw yourself down on the floor in the fetal position and suck your thumb for a few minutes, then okay, do it, then get up and get on with your "I will . . . . " Hey, I've thrown myself down on the floor and let it all out in order to be done with it and to get over myself. I'll admit, I'm quite capable of pathetic behavior in order to thrust me into strong-willed productive behavior. Whatever it takes, is what it takes. Do what you have to do to LIGHT UP and start living in the Light again.

As an entire sign, the house that I wrote about yesterday, that is also mentioned in the first two paragraphs above and the last two paragraphs below, is what you need to pay attention to. This is the Solar Chart, which is for an entire population of one sign. The personal natal chart is what is exact to your birth date, time and location. Look at your personal Natal Chart to see what house is ruled by Leo, especially the area at 14 degrees and this is where the New Moon (fresh start) wants to affect you.

This New Moon in Leo (Sun conjunct the Moon) is also trine to Uranus in Aries. This indicates a highly progressed outlook on Life. It brings about spiritual insight, leadership awareness and personal charm and magnetism. Not to mention, this is a phenomenal time to use astrology as a guide. Uranus in Aries is insanely awesome for the use of astrology and astrologers because the understanding will be much easier. It's just one of those cool astrology aspects that makes astrology more popular and easier to use and understand in our lives. Uranus is inventive and innovative, so this fresh start under such wonderful circumstances is a perfect time to reinvent yourself. Reinvent your relationship with money, your mate, your health, your internal self, your appearance, your personality . . whatever it may be, this is the time to reinvent yourself and make that fresh start. HOT DANG I LOVE THIS STUFF!
