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 CANCER TODAY! Keywords: Home, family, mother, older women, nurturing, cooking, gardening, tradition, moody, feelings, over-emotional, antiques, nostalgia, emotions, intuition, tears, water, land, mining, property, your heritage, places of abode, residences, your roots, biological and psychological foundation

The Cancer Moon is moving through your 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or partner, joint resources, 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, sex and an element of legal matters.

Today we are experiencing a Void of Course Moon in Cancer from 6:59 AM EDT until 6:57 PM EDT. This takes us into the Moon in Leo, which essentially becomes a New Moon in Leo tomorrow, Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 5:50 PM EDT at 14 degrees 34 minutes. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are both in the same sign and in the same degree, which means the Sun is in Leo at 14 degrees 34 minutes and the Moon is in Leo at 14 degrees 34 minutes. I am attaching two charts wheels today under the Daily Astrology Chart link below so you can see this occur. Look at the date and time on the chart wheel. As an entire sign the Leo Moon impacts your 9th house of global impact, higher education, higher subjects of conversation such as religion, philosophy and philanthropy, dreams, visions, goals and ambitions. For you personally, the impact will be in the house that Leo rules at 14 degrees in your personal natal chart.

The basic nutshell of the Moon in Leo is that there is a very strong desire for self-improvement. This isn't about being perfect. Self-improvement and perfectionism are two completely different things. I want you to remember that when a New Moon occurs there is an 'orb of influence' for right at about two weeks although the impact will be for an entire year. This is because there will not be another New Moon in Leo until July 26, 2014. Think self-improvement, self-improvement, self-improvement.

For all Sagittarian's, this impacts your 9th house of the keywords I just mentioned above. I really want to stress that you study the house in your personal natal chart that is ruled by Leo as well. If your 2nd house (in your personal natal) of self-worth and personal income is ruled by Leo, then the self-improvement would be in this house. So yes, there are two houses to consider here, the house as an an entire sign (9th house) and the house ruled by Leo in your personal natal chart. Leo is a very proud sign, so make certain that you are not too proud to improve this house or that you are not so proud that you are braggadocious and arrogant. Even a bragging and arrogant attitude needs self-improvement. Also keep in mind that Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun and we cannot survive without the Sun. Think about this Sun shining in your Leo house and how necessary it is for you to learn and grow in this house. Certainly your Sun Sign is Sagittarius but the Sun actually rules Leo. This Sun shining brilliantly . . figuratively and literally in this house is vital to your existence. Nail down this new cycle (New Moon) in Leo in this particular house and it will feed you Sunbeams (Leo Sun) and Moonbeams (Leo Moon) for an entire year! Then you can improve on it again on July 26, 2014 when the New Moon in Leo occurs once again. We should keep getting better and better every time a New Moon rolls around.

Folks, this is the time to get completely self-absorbed in the houses I just mentioned and work on self-improvement. If you can't manage money, then over the next two weeks start organizing your relationship with money. If you can't get your eating under control, then this is the time to get serious and stop kidding yourself. The size on your clothing is not lying. If your temperament is quick and full of piss and vinegar, then admit to yourself that you have an issue and improve upon it. This New Moon in Leo is not the Moon that you want to kid yourself because even though New Moon's are wonderful for 'new beginnings' you can and will get humbled if the Universe feels it is necessary in order for you to have that new beginning and fresh start. There is nothing more attractive than an individual who is humble and can look and laugh at their own shortcomings. Not laugh in the sense of ignoring and shrugging off, but laugh and admit that change is in order. The Sun in Leo trine Uranus in Aries aspect that we are currently experiencing (see yesterday's horoscope) has a huge component to recognizing your shortcomings. This is just awesome 'self-improvement' energy. Cram this in your head over the next two weeks during this 'orb of New Moon influence' so you can make that shift in consciousness that you have been needing and by all means, stop kidding yourself. If it's always someone else's fault, I guarantee you that isn't true and it's probably time to look in the mirror. OUCHY!

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.
