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.

Astrology is a map and all you have do is follow the Signs. ™ 

THE MOON IS IN SAGITTARIUS TODAY! Keywords: Higher-self, philosophy, jovial, foreign lands, foreign people, foreign cultures, the global community, religion, philanthropy, higher-education, gypsy traveler, lucky, abundance, expansive, the higher-thinking mind, dreams, visions, intuition, legalities and higher law

The Sagittarius Moon is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family. It describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. This house also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode.

This Sagittarian Moon can shake your biologic foundation and inject some excitement into your spirit if you are ready for it. You are an old sign; therefore, you probably know that you don't have to take on the issues, problems and bad decisions of your parents or family members. That is their deal! What you can do is move beyond and learn from your own issues, problems and bad decisions. Remember Virgo, there are no mistakes, only bad decisions and it's the bad decisions you make that get you to the place that you need to be. It's all Good . . now all you have to do is keep walking that path until you get to another decision. You will end up where you are supposed to be as long as you keep walking. Remember, the Sagittarian Moon represents the consummate gypsy of the zodiac. I hope you are in gypsy mode today and getting out and about.

Expanding on what I wrote in yesterday's horoscope about Jupiter in Cancer. On Facebook and Twitter I mentioned that Jupiter in Cancer was "The Happy Buddha". Someone asked, "You mean I have to diet for a year?" I answered, "No, you just can't ignore your health." When it comes to Jupiter in Cancer, think of the crab's wide and full body with skinny arms and legs. This is why many Cancer's and Cancer Rising individuals will have a full face and full body. There is a lot of water supporting that body. Cancer women usually have large breasts because Cancer rules the breasts. The lack of water can make the body bloat and the best cure for bloating is actually drinking water and giving the crab's body what it wants most. WATER! By the way, those of you with squares to Neptune in your personal natal chart may have bloated bodies and will need to feed your body some water. When Jupiter is in your sign, it can make you balloon like a blow-fish and that is what happened to me last year coming out of the South Node in Gemini (August 2012) and going into Jupiter in Gemini. The slamma-bamma of both back to back had me working non-stop and completely ignoring my health. I'm a pretty healthy eater and do not eat any boxed, packaged, canned, refined, baked or processed food. So it wasn't what I was putting into my body. I'm a meat and veggie girl all the way. My butt in a chair for extended periods of time, along with the aspects at that time slowed my metabolism to a snail's pace. I wasn't burning anything. What I'm telling you with Jupiter in Cancer is it will expand your body if you are not aware. You just have to stay on top of your health. Since the New Moon in Aries in April 2013 (five months ago) I got my weight down and back to my normal size (6) and I'm in the best shape of my Life. I'm a Gemini and Gemini's generally have a fast metabolism who can lose weight as fast as we gain it. But still, I let it happen to me and I'm saying, do not let this happen to you. I feel motivated to share this experience with you because it was real and it was ugly. I had porked up 40 lbs! Yeah, I'm not talkin' some 15 lbs, I'm talking 40 lbs. I'm a North Node Virgo for cryin' out loud. I'm supposed to be the picture of Good health and an example of healthy daily living, not a porked up workaholic! At my height (5'8") I can gain 15 lbs. and not really look too much different . . but 40? . . it was a slow climb through the South Node in Gemini and then Jupiter in Gemini but it was real and it happened to me because I ignored my health and made other things a priority. This is one reason why I have a better daily regimen in the morning instead of waking up and walking straight to my computer to work. Me and my personal life come first now . . . and then my work. Horoscopes are generally later now because my priorities have shifted. I learned my lesson well. And as for that water, I drink 2 gallons a day, which is 1 quart every hour. I learned the hard way even though I knew better the whole time.

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.
