FRIDAY - AUGUST 17, 2012

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.

As I wrote to you in yesterday's horoscopes, today is the New Moon in Leo at precisely 11:55 AM EDT at 25 degrees 08 minutes. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are both in the same sign and in the same degree, which means the Sun is in Leo at 25 degrees 08 minutes and the Moon is in Leo at 25 degrees 08 minutes. 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 12th house of the keywords above. For you personally, the impact will be in the house that Leo rules in your personal natal chart.

Some of you may have caught the load of Tweets I fired off this morning regarding this New Moon. The basic nutshell of the Moon in Leo is that there is a very strong desire for self-improvement. This isn't about being perfect. Self-improvement and perfectionism are two completely different things. I want you to remember that when a New Moon occurs there is an 'orb of influence' for right at about two weeks although the impact will be for an entire year. This is because there will not be another New Moon in Leo until August 6, 2013. Think self-improvement, self-improvement, self-improvement. For all Virgo's, as I stated yesterday and noted in the above paragraph, this impacts your 12th house of the keywords above. I really want to stress that you study the house in your personal natal chart that is ruled by Leo. Obviously if your 2nd house of self-worth and personal income is ruled by Leo, then the self-improvement would be in this house. Leo is a very proud sign, so make certain that you are not too proud to improve this house or that you are not so proud that you are braggadocious and arrogant. Even a bragging and arrogant attitude needs self-improvement. Also keep in mind that Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun and we cannot survive without the Sun. Think about this Sun shining in your Leo house and how necessary it is for you to learn and grow in this house. Certainly your Sun Sign is Virgo but the Sun actually rules Leo. This Sun shining brilliantly . . figuratively and literally in this house is vital to your existence. Nail down this new cycle (New Moon) in Leo in this particular house and it will feed you Sunbeams (Leo Sun) and Moonbeams (Leo Moon) for an entire year! Then you can improve on it again on August 6, 2013 when the New Moon in Leo occurs once again. We should keep getting better and better every time a New Moon rolls around.
