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 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country. It also rules neighbors, siblings and extended siblings such as cousins, nieces and nephews.

While the Moon is stronger in Cancer today, it is the perfect time to hit an astrology lesson out of the ballpark with you. Have you noticed from the Daily Astrology Chart (link above) that the chart is still drowning, and I mean drowning, with water signs? It has been that way since late June 2013. Further we have had Grand Trines pop on and off the chart wheel since that time. The Daily Chart Wheel has been 'Water Strong' for quite some time. Water is a Yin or Feminine element, which expresses itself as the emotions, nurturing, security, caring, and comfort. We have all been 'under the influence' of the caretaker role. In fact, we have likely been taking less care of ourselves and taking more care of others. At the same time, those who were in such a strong caretaker mode where they ignored themelves, may have made a switch to stop caretaking so much of others and start taking better care of themselves. After all, we know that we cannot take care of others if we cannot take care of ourselves. "Put your mask on first before you assist the person seated next to you." You cannot help someone with their mask if you are passed out. Duh!

The other thing about all of this water energy is that it is a major intuitive influence. Those of you with Water Strong natal charts may have had your intuition on high-drive because Water Strong charts are incredibly intuitive. Having intuition is one thing, using it is a whole other story. I always say, "A psychic or intuitive who cannot read themselves sure as hell won't be reading me!" (winky wink) I also say, "Don't brag how intuitive you are if you aren't using it." With all of this water presence, we must all remain objective so that we don't get wound up and twisted in emotion and end up making the wrong decision. At the same time, this water strong energy requires us NOT TO intellectualize our response, but instead respond according to how we feel. All of this water energy taps the water sign motto's -- I feel therefore I am (Cancer) -- I believe therefore I am (Pisces) -- I desire there I am (Scorpio). All three motto's are on the level of feeling and that's where you need to go with all of this water. It's deep, it's personal and yet you must remain objective so that you don't respond emotional but instead more instinctive. There is a huge difference between instincts and emotions. Know thyself my little mentators. Know thyself.

The other crazy cool thing about all of these water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) is that they are naturally trine each other. Remember folks, all signs of the same element (air, earth, fire or water) are trine each other. When we are dealing with 'a planet in a sign,' planetary trines need to be within 08 degrees of each other to be considered a trine. For instance, right now Saturn in Scorpio at 16 degrees is trine Jupiter in Cancer at 20 degrees. That is a 04 degree difference and well within the required 08 degree 'orb of influence' to be considered a trine between two planets. In the charts that I write, trines are indicated by solid blue lines in the center of the chart. When you see three trine lines create a big blue triangle in the middle of the chart wheel, that is a Grand Trine. We have been saturated with Grand Trines in the Water Signs since late June 2013. On and off over the past several months many of these Grand Trines have been connected to two dashed blue lines, which are called sextile lines and that creates a Kite. Trines are easy and effortless energy and Kites are so dang easy that they make us lazy and slackers.

You may have read the other day where I typically move at 500 mph but I was tired of working so hard and being in the same place. So I decided to shift gears and pass myself up. I decided to go faster. I doubled-down and look at me now. I'm ahead of myself. All of these trines had me at such an easy pace that I was becoming a slacker and I can't stand that. Me? A slacker? That's where I was headed and I'm self-actualized enough to know what was going on and snap myself out of it. Folks, I'm a mutable sign (changeable) Gemini and I cannot stand to be in the same place month after month and not progressing. I CANNOT STAND IT! I have to be better and get better all the time. Being the same next year would scare the hell out of me. I'm a gal who has to move the furniture around every other month to get my change fix! So I shifted my energy and you can see that I am ahead of myself now by posting horoscopes a day early and I have added something new to the site with the 'Astrology Quizzes'. By getting ahead of myself it will give me the much needed hours to finish the 3rd and final update of the e-Book - Understanding and Using Your North and South Node. I have been traveling non-stop since the last few days of March 2013 and I had to shift gears to get ahead of myself.

What I want you to gain from this information is that these trines are easy and they will make you lazy. SNAP OUT OF IT! Folks, I mean they are eeeeeeasy and they can really mess you up, especially when they form an even easier energy called a Kite. You might be in a really bad way right now but I guarantee you, this is easy energy you need to get off your butt and put yourself out there. Slamma-bamma-ding-dang-dong! This easy energy can cause you to ride the coattails of others and not really pull your own weight. I am a firm believer that one should be able to pull their own weight. I mean that literally like pulling your own weight across the floor in a cross-crawl position or out of a pool up onto a ledge . . . to contributing and participating in the household, project, task, etc. You must be able to pull your own weight. This is the perfect time for you to shift gears and get stronger. Folks....PLEASE.....do not use these trines to make yourself weaker or lazy. These trines are a gift and meant to make you stronger. Shift gears and pull ahead of the pack. The timing is perfect. I know that you can see a difference in me and how I am handling this energy. Slacker? Not this hippy-chick! While others are stagnate, make your move!

I have begun creating 'Astrology Quizzes' for you. When I post a new Astrology Quiz it will show up on this page or you can just run over to the 'Fun and Games' button in the left hand navigation column to check for any new quizzes. There are tons of 'Health Quizzes' under that button as well. Spread the word and tell your friends!!!

If you have an Expansive Natal Chart that I wrote for you, make certain you use your Chart Configurations and Graphics file to help you navigate and understand the chart. The charts that I write are incredibly basic but are at the same time incredibly advanced, so that as your astrological learning grows, the chart will have even more to offer you. When you begin your navigation through the chart 'using' the very first page of the Chart Configurations and Graphics file, then it makes it easier to understand the rest of the file. Page 1 shows a list of the symbols and glyphs that you will find on the chart wheel. Each successive chart wheel (and there are 5 in the file) are the same but just a tad bit different with more information. The house cusps are the same, the planetary arrangement is the same, the aspects (lines in the center) are the same, the wheel just looks a bit different. Start learning your chart using your Chart Configurations and Graphics file, then when you read your Expansive Natal Chart file the quadrants, houses, hemispheres, etc., will make more sense because the wheels are better understood. Okie Dokie.
