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 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. It also rules those in authority, the father and older men in authority.

I'm going to address this Leo energy first because we all have Leo in our natal charts (EVERYONE DOES), which contributeS to 1/12th of total make-up and characteristics. As I have written to you many times, every sign has a dual nature even though Gemini (the twins), Libra (the scales) and Pisces (the two fish) are the most popular dual-natured signs. Leo's dual nature shows up through its motto, "I will therefore I am." Leo's tremendous strength and power can show up as overbearing, demanding, dominating and condescending where they 'will' do whatever they see fit, which basically means it is their will over everyone else's will, including God's will. Surely the Leo must be right! Leo's are extremely old souls, which is the sole reason (or should I say 'soul reason') why they feel this way. The other side of this 'will' shows up as willpower in the form of self-control through controlling their own behavior and choices as opposed to having control over others. When a Leo uses their will as self-control, then THIS is where they can and will lead by example. It should NEVER be, "Do as I say" with a Leo. Instead it should be, "Do as I do." Leo is the leader of the zodiac, which must the 'leader by example'. If mischanneled then it is a case of mistaken identity. Do you get my drift folks? Leo should want everyone to be copy-cats and should always be mindful of what others are copying.

Having said that, there will be some Leo's who will use this 'will' to seek control of others in order to have their own way, thereby feeding their powerful nature. Then there will be some Leo's who choose self-control of their own actions and reactions instead of controlling others. This 'willpower' stretches out and gives Leo gifts such as perseverence, determination, stamina, endurance and enormous internal and physical strength. Even though Leo's are incredibly dramatic when they stub their toe or drop the smallest thing, truth be known they aren't afraid of anything and can actually handle an enormous level of pain (internally and externally). If you know a Leo, notice how they will look directly into the camera lens when their picture is taken. This is a sign of bravery and courage where they will look their prey, opponent or possible foe right in the eye without blinking. BRING IT!

Now without judgment of all the Leo's that we know (winky wink) let's transfer this understanding to yourself because as I keep reminding you in these horoscopes, we all have each of the 12 Sun Signs in our own personal natal charts. This means that there isn't one of us on the planet who will escape having the Leo "I will therefore I am" characteristic somewhere in our chart. As I wrote to you yesterday, this Leo energy reveals itself as strength and power, so where this Leo energy shows up for you is where you will see how you utilize and channel this strength and power. Some of you will have powerful personalities, some of you will channel this strength and power into creating more money, some of you will exhibit power and control in relationships, some of you will overcome illnesses or tragedies and become 'survivors' and it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that some of you will become powerful leaders within your family, group, Company, locality or country. This Leo energy can manifest in many ways and either be channeled well or it can be channeled inappropriately thereby contributing to your self-undoing. We've seen all too often how those on Wall Street who channeled their power and strength inappropriately only to end up humbled, broke and in prison. Power and strength . . oh these are dangerous words when misused and abused. Look at your Natal Chart to see where Leo shows up for you and then look within to see how you use, "I will therefore I am."

As I wrote about in yesterday's horoscope, we are still in the two week 'orb of influence' of the New Moon in Aries that occurred on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 that will take us straight up to the Full Moon on Thursday, April 25, 2013. This time period will also take us out of a Stellium in Aries and into a Stellium in Taurus, while at the same time we will experience a Sun/Mars conjunction from Aries (the self) to Taurus (self-worth). Dang this is incredible folks when you stay on your game. Oh ho ho, do you see how everything is going to be built on THE SELF as we move from sign to sign. I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Now I want you to maintain your focus on this strong and powerful Leo Moon helping you along this 2 week period of New Moon influence. The Leo Moon for Scorpio focuses on your 10th house of career, public Life outside of the home and family, public recognition, authority figures, the father, status in the community and rank in society. You need to look at yourself in the most honest way and ask yourself how do I channel, "I will therefore I am." You see folks, Leo is one of the four Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). Fixed signs are set in their ways and more fixed in their views than those born in Cardinal or Mutable signs. Fixed signs have more continuity and are more difficult to sway, change or move from their position. Fixed signs rarely change their mind and are not so quick to adjust and adapt to new situations. In having no change, this feels stable and secure to the Fixed sign. Can you see how being firmly fixed can be a form of control? If this Leo energy refuses to change, then how does one get better or move forward? How does one experience improvement in their Life? Geez, with no change their would be no . . . 'Pringles New Fangled Potato Chips' . . . and no 'New and Improved Tide' . . . and for you McRib lovers, there would never be a McRib! Oh my gosh, there wouldn't even be an 'iPhone 5'! No new ideas, no improvements, no change, no growth, no excitement, no adventure, no stimulation, etc.

Still, we need Fixed signs to keep energy stable but not so stable that it stunts its damn growth! Fixed Signs tether energy and keep energy from flying out into the ethers, like a astronaut tethered to the spaceship. The astronaunt can still get out there and explore for Universe without being completely disconnected and floating out in the ethers. You see that's what my Scorpion King (fixed sign) does for me, a Gemini (mutable sign). If it weren't for him, I could be a bit crazy, disconnect my tether and float out into the ethers under my own power (air). I am an air sign (wind). Wind bag might be more like it. (winky wink) The Fixed sign serves its purpose by stabilizing and securing me and I in turn come into his Life like a tornado (Mutable sign), which means changeable and reorganize, change and move everything.

Again, during this time period from the New Moon on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 leading up to the Full Moon on Thursday, April 25, 2013 work these daily Moon's to keep your emotions in check and your new beginning on track.

For Scorpio's this two week time period involves your 6th house of Aries and coming to a completion in your 12th house of Libra as you can see from the flow of your Solar Chart below. It will then set you up for the Stellium in Taurus, which you can see from the flow chart below that it will impact your 7th house. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The flow for your Solar Chart looks like this. Your Sun Sign Scorpio would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Sagittarius 2nd house, Capricorn 3rd house, Aquarius 4th house, Pisces 5th house, Aries 6th house, Taurus 7th house, Gemini 8th house, Cancer 9th house, Leo 10th house, Virgo 11th house and Libra 12th house.

For your personal natal chart that has your exact birth date, time and location, then the flow from the 1st house would according to whatever Sun Sign is your Rising Sign.
