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 GEMINI TODAY! Keywords: flirty, flighty, fiesty, the chameleon, variety is the spice of life, colorful (all colors), spontaneous, communication, transportation, siblings, neighbors, mental abilities, mental telepathy, the mentalist, thinking, brainiac, intellectual, puzzles, basic education (grades 1 thru 12)

The Gemini 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.

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 couple of days I have been directing your attention to thinking 'outside of the box.' The box being the Grand Cross aka Grand Square that is present on the Daily Astrology Chart and paying more attention to what is going on 'outside of the box,' which is the 'Star of David' that is present until September 5, 2013. I elaborated more on this in yesterday's horoscope so you will need to click back to play catch-up so I don't have to repeat myself. If I find the minutes, I will move this information over to your Weekly Horoscope's so that it will be easier to see all in one place. Daily Astrology Chart Wheels are uploaded through September 5, 2013 so you can see what these chart configurations look like. Just change the date in your browser. The Grand Cross/Square will remain present for several weeks, which means it is probably a Good idea to jump on the easy train and move some energy, roll the dice and take some risks. A 'Star of David' has so much ease and effortlessness because it is made up of sextiles, Grand Trines and kites that missed opportunities is likely simply because it's just too easy. As I stated yesterday, thank God there is a Grand Cross/Square present to kick us in the butt or scare us just enough to take some much needed action.

Today the Moon is in the sign of Gemini. This energy will cause you to move at a much faster clip than the Taurus Moon we experienced over the past 2-1/2 days. Gemini is very curious sign, which absolutely requires mental stimulation. If Gemini falls silent they are either spellbound and captivated or they are bored and weary. This is a very action-oriented Moon that enjoys making contact with people, especially on a real life level and not so much behind the scenes. It's no secret that I do not like e-mail because it is so impersonal and you have to be so careful not injure someone's feelings due to misinterpretation. As a Gemini, that makes me nuts! Actually it probably pisses me off more than it makes me nuts. Social networking, Facebook and the like can easily be the same way, which I find very impersonal. Someone takes something the wrong way and BAM! you're defriended. It's so stupid and silly but yet there I am trying my best to make a personal connection on a mass level where there might otherwise be no one-on-one connection at all. As a Gemini, I prefer phone calls, not to mention it is the quickest and easiest way to get ahold of me. During a Gemini Moon there is more contact between siblings, cousins and neighbors because Gemini rules these people in our personal lives. Don't be surprised if you hear from these people today. Gemini is a smooth talker and not so much a fast talker like their counterpart Sagittarius. Gemini can talk their way into and out of just about anything, which is also why Gemini rules sales. The air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are the intellectual signs, which means they express themselves through communication -- talking, writing, thinking, the intellect and a quick flow of ideas. Gemini is the brainiac and librarian of the zodiac, which also rules the brain, the mind and mental abilities including mental telepathy. Gemini rules grades 1 through 12 and prefers simple no-nonsense education and explanation rather than throwing around fifty dollars words and trying to impress with words that no one else knows. Gemini thinks through everything in their mind allowing their rational mind to outweigh their feelings.

Today the Moon in Gemini is squaring the Sun in Virgo and also Mercury in Virgo. This is interesting because both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury, like Taurus and Libra are both ruled by Venus. This can create emotion tension because the Moon rules the emotion and the tension is between logical Gemini and analytical Virgo. Gemini is figuratively silly and Virgo is literally serious. You may find yourself saying, "Dang, I just kidding, take it down a notch!" Many of you might learn a thing or two about tact today. There may be uncompromising honesty with the Gemini energy and painfully truthful criticism with the Virgo energy, which can make a day turn difficult. And it's all in the area of communication.

For all Scorpio's on the planet, this Gemini Moon impacts your 8th house of joint resources and support from other people that has a secretive tone to it. This can bring about heavy flirtations of a secretive nature. Just make certain these flirtations are not out of alignment with your value systems. Scorpio can easily get tangled up in an emotional affair or put themselves in a position that they might regret later. This Gemini energy is incredibly flirty and really works on your sex appeal and charisma. One compliment to you from a stranger and you might think they are in Love with you. You can be flirty and nice without having it turn into something that it isn't. If you have a healthy relationship, then play up this fun an fiesty energy with your partner.

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. My Twitter handle is drstandley.
