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 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 moving through your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

We are already 'under the influence' of the New Moon in Leo, which technically takes place tomorrow on Friday, August 17, 2012. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are both in the same sign and in the same degree. The Sun in Leo and the Moon in Leo will both be at 25 degrees 08 minutes at 11:55 AM EDT. 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 7th house of the keywords above. For you personally, the impact will be in the house that Leo rules in your personal natal chart.

This New Moon that will occur tomorrow highlights your 12th house of behind the scenes action that others cannot see or don't know about you. You may have a secret and quiet tendency to enjoy the finer things in Life but yet you hide it. This is energy that I would not squash or hide. For instance, you could be working on a really cool project that you want to sell to those who can afford but the belief that you don't deserve such nice things could put the brakes on it. You do not have to hide who you are for any reason at any time. This 12th house rules mental health and this will be the time for you to embrace a higher state of awareness about yourself. While you may be busy doing this and that to perfection, you may be putting yourself on the back burner. As the natural ruler of the 6th house of health, you cannot do this to yourself and get by with it. The Universe will not allow you to be last on the list when you rule physical health. It doesn't work that way. Take care of yourself Virgo. This Leo Moon wants to bring fun back into your Life. This most definitely has to do with your 12th house of the keywords above AND THE house of your personal natal chart that is ruled by Leo. It's a new cycle for a new beginning that begins right now until the next New Moon in Leo in this area of your chart, which will be next year on August 6, 2013.

On another note, remember from yesterday's writing that Venus and Pluto were in direct opposition to each other? Well today they have already begun to separate in degrees. Venus and Pluto are still in opposition until August 20th but they are now separating (easing up). Now look at the Venus and Uranus because they are in a direct square with one another at 08 degrees. This is 'free spirit' energy which makes it hard to commit, not only in relationships but to anything. Venus square Uranus is about freedom of self-expression, freedom to Love whom one pleases and freedom to be oneself. Anyone who tries to cling to another may get the brush off. And while we are on the subject, let me just give 'some of you' out there a word of advice. If you cling to the one you Love and need to know every little thing about that person, where they are and who they are with, then that is a security issue within yourself and this Venus square Uranus aspect may have to set you straight. Just keep in mind that squares actually provide us the motivation to change. Therefore, some people really will change the status of their relationships because now they are most definitely MOTIVATED!

Always remember folks that where there are challenges, there is always a way of escape. It's a scriptural thing, haven't you heard? (I Corinthians 10:13 . . . Google it!) That's what I Love about astrology, these challenges serve as our motivation otherwise we would be plunked down on our butts receiving and not doing what we were purposed to do. Then comes along the sextiles and trines (blue lines in the charts I write) that give you a way of escape. God is so Good! So look at the charts and you will see the Sun sextile Saturn where you can take on more responsibility and prove how successful you can actually become. You will see the Sun sextile Mars where you have more energy, drive and force to take your ideas and projects to a new level. You will see the Moon and Mercury conjunct in Leo where you are intuition and imagination are in sync. The Moon conjunct Mercury is where your emotions, thoughts and speech are in sync. This is some awesome ESP (extra-sensory-perception). The Moon is trine Uranus which brings out your uniqueness and ability to express your ideas. While the Moon trine Uranus certainly won't let you lay down and take any grief from anyone, it will cause you to take the time to listen and appreciate others opinion, which can help you get to the place that you desire to be. And there's Mercury trine Uranus, which enhances flashes and I means 'flashes' of intuition. Ideas and insights come fast and furious. Mercury trine Uranus is absolutely perfect for communication as Mercury rules communication and Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. It's so Good that words don't even need to be spoken because it is that strong on intuition. Mercury trine Uranus makes it super easy for you to dial up God and receive your transmission clearly. Of course it's always easy to dial up God but whether you listen is another story. This Mercury trine Uranus will enhance your listening skills. Mercury trine Uranus is also fan-dang-tastic for Astrology and causes us astrologers who are also psychics or intuitives to light up like a dang Christmas tree. If you are an intuitive individual (which I believe we all are) only some of us embrace it and trust it more than others, then this is the time to work it and work with it.

So folks, no whining right now. There is more than enough wonderful and easy energy to support our cause and desire. We have to have challenges to get our lazy butt off the couch. We have to have challenges to get us out of those lousy and unhealthy relationships. We have to have challenges to learn how to use money wisely. We have to have challenges in order to become what we were purposed to be. It's a New Moon in the house that Leo rules in your Natal Chart. Use it or lose it!
