The Leo New Moon inspires a roar or contented purring. Which way will you be led?
Hearts open and what was buried in emotions suddenly sprouts into action when the Lion roars into town. This is due to new-found confidence and the ability to express our deeper emotions. Leo is a joyful sign with a great deal of energy and exuberance. The challenge is to keep focus on the big picture. If we become self-centered it is detrimental.
The projects that we have been hoping and praying for are about to gain momentum. Are you ready for this? It is time to really check all the preparations to be sure you are sturdy and sound and ready for the energy about to flood in. Speaking of flood, let’s watch the global weather trends as I am sure the intense rains are continuing.
August 7, Jupiter the giant in sensitive Cancer makes his first of three oppositions to intense Pluto in staunch Capricorn. These two repeat this dance January 31 and April 20, 2014. I suggest you mark these dates in your calendar and note what happens each day in your journal. These two drive us to tear down our normal way of doing things. The best choice is to focus within and ignore what anyone is telling you.
Conversations are soaked in color August 8, when chatty Mercury zips into the sign of innovative Aquarius. You are tempted to paint outside the lines and enhance reality. Take care to stay truthful in your communications. Even the tiniest embellishment is sure to cost you dearly.
Relationships come under scrutiny August 16 when Venus, the Goddess of love sails into Libra. The scales of justice love to weigh out situations. Keeping your focus on peace is indeed a good thing but Libra can easily fan the flames and cause a wildfire due to the nature of his motto "Peace at any price!"
We have a Blue Moon when Luna is Full August 20 in Aquarius. This reminds us that we are indeed part of a team and this goes far beyond our inner circle of friends and family. It is so easy to lose sight of the fact that we are part of the greater infinite consciousness. It is more than likely that you are finding challenges at work as to how to be a team player. Be sure to contact me for a reading and go over your natal chart in comparison to this transit. I promise to steer you in the best direction!
When the larger bodies aspect one another they affect us for a couple weeks due to their slow movement from our perspective viewpoint. I know many of you experienced a great deal of sensitivity when Jupiter conjoined the personal planets last month in the sign of Cancer. Hold onto your hat. This enormously bountiful planet is about to square unique Uranus August 21. You are sure to feel this from the 14th through the 24th and it affects you in several ways. Nothing seems to go as planned and as the days continue you feel you have less and less to count on. Though of you in the development stages for events in late February and April of 2014, you must take extra care and exercise a great deal of patience as this is when the pattern repeats itself. Again, this is another good calendar and journal marker.
The Sun steps tentatively into Virgo August 21, signaling the imminent change of season. Though spring is often the time of year for clearing and cleaning, remember that our friends in the southern hemisphere are experiencing exactly this. Therefore, I see both Equinox times as opportunities and incentive to do just this. Virgo loves us to clear out and clean up. She is the goddess of organization and calculation. Let her help you through all of your tasks.
August 23, Mercury returns to one of his two homes in the sign of Virgo. During his stay here, the messenger figures out new ways to express himself and clarify his point. Perfect your pitch and improve your interactions. There is a big difference between nagging pickiness and constructive commenting.
The movement for this lunar month closes with a clash of symbols August 27, when the flames of Mars potentially blaze out of control due to his junket through Leo. All this fire can literally cause things to burn up. Therefore, take care with stoves, candles and anger. Watch out for volcanoes and wildfires. Triple-check your actions and keep things cool.
When we play with mighty Leo’s power consciously with decorum, we are able to make diamonds out of coal. If we are sloppy and haphazard, we destroy what is dear to us. The choice is yours. Tread softly and with integrity.
For insight into your personal sign…read on…
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21. Many eyes have had their focus on you and the attention has felt really good. Now you must prove yourself and follow through on your promises. Be honest about the unknowns. It is worth it to take extra time weighing out all possibilities and even roll-playing scenarios. This assists with your understanding of possible outcomes and helps to keep you from going overboard. Do not act hastily, especially with your bank account! I know this is not your style but you absolutely must!
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22. You are easily overwhelmed by a flood of information. Don’t let it drag you under the surface of your current focus. Instead utilize the emotional waves as motivation to help build your self-esteem. All of the perceived mind-games are self-generated. Ride the sensation of struggle to the nearest mirror and give yourself a good talking to. This has been your own doing. It is your choice whether everything ends up as a muddy mess or serves to create a new beginning.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22. Reign in the whacky energy that has your thoughts scattered in many directions at once. Right now the best you can do is to keep still with your mouth shut! This helps to curb the potential of detrimental blurting. Practice mindfulness. Irritations at home exacerbate your tension level. Find a way to the center of your heart as you ride the mind waves. Gently pull apart the fibers of each thought and weave them into useful allies. This keeps your paranoia at bay. Cash in on alone time as it holds the gold and gems of your true potential.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23. The most important aspect you must focus on now is the physical body. It is the sacred vehicle that takes you down your path of learning. Under no circumstance is it to be compromised or mistreated. Take extra care to evaluate anything that appears as a sure thing. It is an illusion not at all as it initially appeared to be. Hang on through this rough patch by exercising a great deal of patience. Rather than imagining what can fill your gaps or that something has got to give, stay focused on expansive emptiness.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24. You are supercharged with a great deal of energy. During a period of such exuberant positive flow it is easy to become sloppy especially when presenting your ideas to important listeners and handing in completed projects. Hold off on any large investments and give yourself more time to weigh out all potentials. The outcomes of your challenging decisions are worth waiting for. Hang in there. Rather than leaving your responsibilities and splurging in diversions, force yourself to sit tight and surrender.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24. Get out of your left-brain and into your right more creative side. This breaks the boundaries of perceived limitations. Who cares what anyone else thinks? All judgments really come from within your own mind. Practice optimism and positive thinking. Follow the impulses of your unusual cravings and satisfy a part of you that deserves to have a little fun. I trust you to be honest and to stop because you know when enough is indeed enough.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24. So many choices and offers are rolling in that it is dizzying trying to figure out which is the best way to go. At the moment you begin to feel comfortable an overwhelming view of your long-term goals wafts into focus. I know it is cliché but you must find the balance. Learn to control your energy and force as if you have a magic rheostat and can turn it up a little, then throttle it back a little. This helps you learn to dial into the perfect intensity. This is how you absorb the fact that small moves are the secrets to your future success. This goes for business and relationships.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23. Keep plenty of quiet time in order to soothe your senses. This helps you to settle the ego. Enormous opportunities are literally inundating you. Find time to be alone so you can slowly and softly process all of the changes ahead. Hold back on words and communication more than ever. August 11 to 14 are days when silence literally turns to gold. Trust that your stillness is allowing your true destiny to unfold. This is occurring in a most unusual way. I promise that everything will settle into structure and format itself by the end of the month.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22. An emotional hit causes you to dive into your darkest depths. The pressure squeezes in on your ability to be creative and in turn affects your financial funds. Do whatever you can to slow down and calm your nerves. This is surely making you stronger. Take care in your communications. There can be screw-ups. These are caused when you feel you are making perfect sense, yet you are grossly misinterpreted by others. The outcome carves new and unexpected space and gives you an opportunity to embrace the unknown. Stay present by reminding yourself to curb expectations.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21. Usually you are the go to person for keeping an even keel and having the ability to communicate with calm sophistication. This is not one of those months. Plan escape routes ahead of time when entering any social situation to avoid being cornered. This is such a juxtaposed-bizarre-backward feeling for you. Making matters even stranger, you find yourself being attracted to things that used to be on your "never in a million years" list. Just go with it and don’t look back. Use the "try it I may like it" theory and you are sure to come up with a whole list of new favorites.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19. Tether yourself to the ground so that you don’t float off into space. It is so easy for you to ignore everyone and that always leaves them feeling alienated. Get all of your work completed before you take off on pleasure cruises. Failure to do so creates a difficult mess. Indeed knots require extra time to unsnarl and your nerves will make or break you through this process. It is important to find a way to defrag that computer of a mind sitting on top of your shoulders before you self-destruct. I am here for support; make an appointment now so I can chart these confusing waters for you.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20. You feel like it is time for a whole new color scheme and flavor. If you can avoid getting caught up in the jive talking of others you are led straight up to the next level. This is not an excuse to turn your back on responsibilities. Keep a look out for an extremely smooth-talking mystery person. When they show up it is important to stick to your plan. Do not allow yourself to become sidetracked. Consider it a messenger of the divine showing up as a trickster. Stay calm and politely decline all of their offers.
