New Moon in Leo
Saturday July 26th 6:43 PM EST
The new Moon's conjunction with Jupiter in Leo indicates both an awakening self realization and a rise in self consideration. Either way the focus of self on self is increased. What can this mean? There are so many flavors here, for example the need to be someone of public fame can become a prioritized sought after urge for some. For others a simple sticking up for oneself believing in oneself more thoroughly is what is called for. For others the feeling of their significance can be either increased or decreased in a more dramatic fashion then they typically experience. The way Jupiter can be most ideally experienced is by simple being able to resonate with the metaphoric parallels which build and create the fabric of our experiences through our relationships and interconnections. The ability to notice that life is sets of layered patterns which repeat and extend themselves in an expanding nature and that Jupiter is like the rising or expansion of awareness along these correlating patterns will assist the individual in riding the wave of expansion of their self significance. We can also see this principal by perceiving life as being fractal like. The conjunction of Jupiter with the new Moon in Leo will launch the effect of Jupiter for many individuals as Jupiter only recently made this Leo ingress, on July 16th, Jupiter will transit Leo for one year. For now the immediate Moon cycle, the effect is to perhaps feel inspired to get going with some activities, activities which tie into one's need to feel they are not missing out on the fun things of life. This could very well translate to the need to do more multi-tasking than usual. How one understands fantasy is another factor which will affect the way this huge increase in Leo energy will affect their impulses and urges. Leo energy can feel very empowered when they align with just the right fantasy. With Mercury transiting Cancer during the new Moon phase a more sensitive emotional communication can occur as individuals expedite their plans, especially those activities connected to their plans which require relationship experiences. In relationship and especially partnerships which are important to the individual a need to have good communication is indicated by the presence of Juno in Gemini. Again good communication is called for where good means listening and being sensitive to what another is saying. Juno in Gemini can also indicate someone saying something to another in order to seek attention or acknowledgement from them. The theme here may be related to self admiration as Jupiter the ruling planet for the relationship sign relative to Gemini, Sagittarius which is ruled by Jupiter, is conjunct the new Moon. Venus in Cancer indicates there will be those who are drawn to being sensitive and vulnerable and so this can mix into their communication and again add to the Leo theme of this Moon cycle via the same path or formula as previously attributed to Juno's current astrological position.
The quality of one`s leadership ability and or the quality of one`s integrity will be busted or substantiated during this Moon cycle and the coming months, it begins with this Leo Moon cycle. Unfortunately it is not unusual for some individuals to distract themselves from feeling, feeling whatever, sometimes certain people are just afraid to feel. This is significant now because the amount of feeling and emotional energy we have been experiencing lately has been high. Now with Jupiter's recent Leo ingress plus the new Moon in Leo coming up, and the new Moon is in conjunction with Jupiter in Leo, the rise of self significance will in many become a major concern. If self importance is used as a distraction ploy then we can see external validation as coloring the beliefs of such an individual. When public admiration and respect are the by-product of one`s self respect and integrity their public value is grand and perhaps even anonymous. It is natural and healthy for an individual to like who they are, many things happen to such an individual, many good things. As we begin this grand Leo adventure starting with this new Moon in Leo and sustained by Jupiter`s one year transit through Leo we will all be given generous opportunities to evolve our self love and our integrity, and so let the self admiration begin!
Plans which have been building and some amount of prepping invested will now be engaged and manifesting as actual events. The Mars Scorpio ingress which occurred near the end of the previous Moon cycle will be significant this Moon cycle and the next due to the extra focus given Scorpio for the past few years. Where it may have been important to the individual to define their security, their job position and arrangement their wage or payment plans their contracts and their financial situation, it is now going to change gears and become actions. Back in 2012 and 2013 the Moon's north node was transiting Scorpio and before the Moon's north node made it's Libra ingress on February 18th 2014 Saturn had begun it's two year transit of Scorpio which will continue until late December 2014 when Saturn makes a Sagittarius ingress. With Mars now in Scorpio until September 13th a shift in all that consideration of one's security will take place in that certain individuals will take actions which will most likely affect many others. Something, for example, which has been clearly defined on paper will all of a sudden become the impetus for some one's action. These actions which people take relative to their security consideration may very well be knee jerk as if there was a pressure on them which they could no longer contain. Of course it could also be that a plan which was very well designed yet timidly allowed, will now launch as it gets a Mars push, possible starting a business or some way of securing values and comfort. One must not forget that Uranus is currently transiting Aries and has been in a tight alignment, quincunx, with Saturn in Scorpio for several weeks now and so Aries as Mars natural home turf will be given a shocking bolt of freedom, social freedom urges are on the rise, which will in turn free Mars and again there is a good indicator that plans regarding security will now start to translate to Mars type "just do it" actions.
With Vesta hanging around in Libra since November 2013 and now making a Scorpio ingress the sense that a partnership deserves your special dedication may have been evident. Perhaps there is a long standing relationship or even a more recent one, either way a sense of commitment may have been felt and acted out, one which continues now. If there is a strong integrity behind this commitment and dedication the Vesta Scorpio ingress, along with both Saturn and now Mars also transiting Scorpio, has the potential to bring forward some sort of very special dividend. For example support in a partnership can yield a big thing a big value, something which satisfies as well as testifies to how valuable that relationship really is.
The focus on Pisces, Neptune as Pisces planetary ruler and also Chiron both transiting there, is correlating with a major change or shift in human consciousness. People the world over are becoming more attached to their feelings. This is like a phase or era in human history which will be more obvious from some future point when those in future land look back through these decades. For now as we experience this increase in prioritizing our feelings or compassion we may have noticed that many boarders and boundaries are losing their value. This is evident even from the reverse actions where there is like a final stand on some tradition by old-school energy. In cultures and religions in immigration in dogmatic assertion the evidence of the current global change is there. The added Uranus in Aries transit will shed much light on the social revolts related to personal freedom which is going on pretty well everywhere. This will continue to grow and continue to make changes as to how people become more and more global citizens and common in that it becomes increasingly known that even though we may look different and talk different we are actually not so different after all. The current Leo focus, Jupiter in Leo and the four week long Leo Moon cycle, will engage this Pisces focus. Leo energy likes fantasy, Leo can and does use fantasy to feel empowered. The thing is to understand what is fantasy. Are these different things, reality and fantasy? Or is reality itself a fantasy which seems overly real as so many people act as if it is and thus supported and substantiated by the concept thought creates? Anyway we may notice that for some people to experience their self love they need a fantasy and now during this Moon cycle we may see the evidence of a trend toward acting as if fantasy is more real than perhaps considered in the past, a decade or two ago perhaps depending on one's age. There may be an artistic burst, musicians writers painters programmers bloggers, all artistic types making a move toward the expression of their dream, their desire, their fantasy.
With this Moon cycle beginning in Leo the focus will be on the joy of self expression. The current report, including the fourteen period cycle below, is scripted from the perspective of experiencing one's own impulse to interact with life as an expression of one's self admiration. Self acceptance and self admiration become the directors of one's involvement in life. An evolution of self awareness occurs as influences and beliefs which support or block one's inspiration from shinning out into their world become consciously known. Those born under the Sun sign Leo have a natural propensity to express a powerful self confidence. They naturally resonate with the freedom to be themselves. Not to exclude others as we all have Leo energy somewhere in our personal astrology charts, the following is a simplified list intended to indicate where each Sun sign will enjoy the expressions of self confidence. There are many accents in each personal astrology chart where an individual's energy will be characterized by an apparent alternate Sun sign, as in being their Moon sign. In these cases there may be personal alignments which support a deviation of one's will from their highest order. The intention here is to clarify the nature of how self love is extended out into a shared world when impulses are followed in a dynamic yet effortless manner. These can also serve as healthy intentions.
I connect with self admiration ...
- Cancer: when I embrace my local environment and become sensually involved in life.
- Gemini: when I exchange and communicate ideas with others while enjoying spontaneous interaction.
- Taurus: when I trust and examine my feelings and allow these feelings to lead me to practical clarity and insight.
- Aries: by trusting my enthusiasm and allowing my inspiration to move into dynamic expression.
- Pisces: by being responsible and practical, by achieving my goals.
- Aquarius: when I am involved with healthy fulfilling partnerships where ideas are communicated and shared with exciting interest.
- Capricorn: by trusting my partnerships and becoming involved in mutually beneficial agendas.
- Sagittarius: by accepting the adventures which my impulsive self leads me to.
- Scorpio: whenever I allow my commitment to the public through my career.
- Libra: when I allow myself to enjoy social freedom.
- Virgo: by accepting my calling to be practical prudent and realistic within a universal world of compassion and shared interaction.
The Birthdays section is a list of birthdays which are being strongly affected by current astrological alignments. If a birthday is not listed here it doesn't mean that a person is not experiencing significant astrological influences which are dynamically paralleling life changes. After all we are experiencing tremendous Earth changes now, nobody is excluded. The people who do have these birth dates are being strongly influenced now and are likely experiencing life altering dynamics. In some cases great opportunities are occurring and in others great challenges are brought forward. Since all challenges can be re-framed as opportunities all those who have these birthdays are experiencing great live changing opportunities. If a birthday is just a day or so previous to the listed date then the person has recently experienced a major change. Due to the retrograde nature of transiting planets the change is not necessarily complete, it may return. If a birthday follows a date listed the person will soon experience a major change. Again due to the retrograde nature of transiting planets the person may have already begun a major change which seems to have backed off, and will most definitely return.

01 Saturday July 26th - new Moon in Leo 6:43 PM EST
With the themes "partnership relationships" and "public call for freedom" to be realized, this Moon cycle will be an extension of the previous cycles however there are a few new energy dynamics coming forward as well. The Jupiter Leo ingress will be very evident now as the Sun and Moon conjunct in Leo forming a conjunction with Jupiter. The way an individual feels about themselves will begin to be expressed more openly. Jupiter can be blinding in it's influence, there are those who will be blinded by the assumption of their own importance. Others will be accepted as inspiration leaders. All forms of individualized radiant characteristics in between will be exaggerated. An adherence to external validation will either collide or harmonize with another's need to experience the freedom they feel is their natural right. Mars just recently made a Scorpio ingress joining Saturn which has been transiting Scorpio since October 2012. Many deals which have been lingering, many arrangements which have been dominated by posturing, will now be activated by the actions typically of a single who individual yet it is likely that several others will join on the action. Again integrity which has been an ongoing strategy for the individual will prove it's weight in gold and then some as those who have been in lack of this big "i" will find themselves confronted by their own denial, and for some perhaps deception. This, the new Moon phase, is always a good time to assert one's desires dreams and visions simply by feeling themes as if they are occurring now. Those who truly love who they are will become lights of inspiration beginning now and as Jupiter sustains this influence and inspirational quality will continue to amplify this light for an entire year starting now.

02 Monday July 28th - Moon enters Virgo 11:38 PM
Some may feel their effort to accommodate the agenda of others has not been respected the way they hoped or anticipated. There is now a move toward being more critical, more "facts are truth" demeanor, in some relationship challenges, as indicated by the Moon's Virgo ingress. An analytical approach may seem the better solution right now. Is it possible that those who believe such a thing are avoiding the apparent burden of feeling their situation? Getting the emotional perspective may be too overwhelming yet it is our emotions which are our truth. If we are not happy about the way we feel then perhaps we need to look at our beliefs. If we consider our beliefs and our thoughts as being our choice of the type of reality and relationship we are calling to ourselves then we can use our emotional take as an opportunity to discover a belief which would perhaps be better off either being discarded or adjusted. This may be a good time to consider what has been falsely accepted as absolute as it is our mental clarity here right now which is being placed under the microscope. A rising sense of the power of compassion can also occur during this period which will work if the individual is willing to question their beliefs and allow their mind to move toward a new level of clarity.
03 Thursday July 31st - Moon enters Libra 12:10 PM
Mercury ingress Leo Thursday July 31st 6:47 PM
As Venus transits through Cancer a grand trine in water signs in formed involving Saturn in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. Assured one's relationships are good brings much feelings as a need to feel the importance of having things fair and in order can be exaggerated. If there is a sense of unfairness in a partnership the potential for deep feelings can grind painfully into one's unresolved issues which can involve an arrangement meant to create security. Conversation may be friendly however serious matters may be broached. A feeling of wanting to maintain fairness and a priority to keep the harmony can service a better outcome as opposed to feeling the need to challenge another. With Jupiter now in Leo there is a potential to be blinded by one' own sense of value and importance and so it is wise to pay close attention to how one feels and to be quick to see how one can take responsibility for their difficulties. An urge to be more nurturing than usual may be felt. This nurturing urge may seem to be triggered by how social freedom has been experienced lately. For example a need to feel free from some social or public bondage which affects one's home or family may cause events to occur which ultimately allow some individuals to realize they are not alone and indeed have companions or friends who are experiencing the same thing as themselves. The quality of some partnerships can be altered as strong feelings and practical matters need to be more clearly prioritized and dealt with and other falsely prioritized things allowed to descend.
04 Saturday August 2nd - Moon enters Scorpio 10:58 PM
For some this period, Moon transit Scorpio, may be a time when one must confront or deal with recent ideas pertaining to their own self importance. One's assumed notoriety may hit home. A square between Mercury in Leo and Mars in Scorpio indicates a need to keep thoughts and words harmoniously aligned with one's bold actions. Ideally this is a time to strengthen the foundation of one's self confidence and to establish a realistic understanding of who they are in terms of being able to share experiences with others which involve security in a mutually beneficial way. There has been for awhile now a focus on who owns what who is in control of what and more recently an assertive force coming into the picture where one's actions imply their real belief. The idea that some are blinded by their assumptions about their grandness may also be occurring now providing a qualifier for aggressive actions. The assumed superior nature of individuals is being prompted to be considered by the individual which can be a fine thing, a good thing, however if the individual has been blindly proceeding along the lines of external validation, external confirmation, their sense of responsibility may be inferior or ignorant and it is this individual who can become reckless in their assertion. From the perspective that everyone gets exactly what they need this can be seen as a time to be clear about how self acceptance is connected to integrity and self responsibility and how these qualities affect one's internal sense of who they are. At the same time this internal sense is extended out into one's home situation as it is the projection of one's internal foundation.
05 Tuesday August 5th - Moon enters Sagittarius 6:20 AM
The advantage of increasing one's public value or expanding their reputation may occur to some. The feeling of being recognized and viewed as being special or important can become a central focus. The emotional truth of one's accepted social position may be reviewed, or perhaps as a projection the social reputation of another is reviewed. The challenge of multi-tasking can be the price to pay to demonstrate one's special admirable talents. Inspiration as the by-product of one's natural joy as they involve themselves in the activities of community is far less strenuous and much more fulfilling. The quality of well defined boundaries will come into play for some as they benefit from being able to get involved in just the right things while avoiding others. Multi-taking for those who have a clear and fair sense of boundaries will most likely prove fruitful as they are given an extra boost of energy. For some it just seems right to share and be involved with others, especially community, and yet at the same time one does not want to over extend themselves. There is a sustained potential for sudden unexpected social events to occur which involves concern over boarders and boundaries, especially in communities where there is a feeling that freedom needs to be better respected. A sudden assertion can occur yet this is not limited to this particular Sagittarius transit. The Sagittarius Moon transit can indeed trigger or start an event from occurring as there is a potentially a concern for public reputation and the need to be seen as a leader. It's like when the forest is dry and it's really hot a simple spark can ignite a much bigger fire. Here the spark is an assertion of one's public value and the fuel the collective pooling energy of citizens feeling their rights are suppressed.
06 Thursday August 7th - Moon enters Capricorn 9:40 AM
As Mercury transits over the Sun in Leo we may hear about how one likes who they are or the opposite, and we may be hearing our own thoughts about ourselves. The mind will be for many transfixed on identity. Perhaps internal dialogue squeaks out to become external dialogue and we hear either directly, or implied, an identity assumed by the individual. The Capricorn Moon suggests a concern for meeting a dead line or for accomplishing some task. And so identity is measured against one's ability to meet the task. Capricorn has been under great revolution since Pluto's ingress there back in 2008 and continues full throttle now so there is a "hitting a moving target" strategy necessary for many to meet their goal, the landscape is changing so technically no-one is an expert right now. This as such can be the time where special talents long held by some are finally becoming valuable as there may be a need for a certain type of character, whereas this particular character or talent was not called for in the past. This special character will have a leadership quality yes, however the leadership role will be a default thing or a by-product as it must be clearly understood that this is new territory. For example those who think they are leaders will most likely be want-a-bes and not so real. On the other hand those who truly like themselves and require little or no external confirmation will do inspiring things and as such be leaders, accidental leaders. In the meantime Saturn, planetary ruler to Capricorn, continues it's Scorpio journey bringing attention to foundational security. Here the foundational security is a sharing of values, being involved harmoniously with each others as a functional requirement. This is like the end of greed and hording and so we can see a lot of this type of disturbing behavior as it is continuously being fleshed out. In the meantime the journey to self love, self discovery, is currently the ultimate opportunity for each individual.
07 Saturday August 9th - Moon enters Aquarius 9:53 AM
Full Moon in Aquarius Sunday August 10th 2:10 PM
An evolving sense of self, a self we like, may be called now to harmonize and fit in with some social ideal. This can be very tricky as there has been, in the last few years, an increasing strangeness or unpredictable make over which has been occurring to these so called social ideals. For those who believe they are socially important, some secretly, their social concept may be dated, their assumption about society historic. A sustained quincunx between Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries may be affecting this very social dynamic giving rise to power seekers who want to gain social attention through what they consider to be clearly defined rules regarding who owns what, who is in control of what. As the Sun and Mercury make a conjunction in Leo at the same degree as Saturn and Uranus we can expect activities in the area of who's who to rise in pitch. Ideally we will discover something about our partnerships which will assist us in being effective not only in the mutual beneficial agenda of the partnership but also in our individualized sense of self. This occurs quite naturally when we are able to move into an effortless acceptance of our partner as being someone we are energetically attracted to and who reflects back to us something important about ourselves which can be very good for us to discover and know.
08 Monday August 11th - Moon enters Pisces 8:56 AM
Venus ingress Leo Tuesday August 12th 3:25 AM
The question as to whether or not someone has been deluding themselves can occur during this Moon transit. A self examination of one's logic may be prompted as something which has been occupying one's attention may become overwhelming, complied with the thought that it may not appear to yield a practical purpose. The tide as such may shift as some become more "serious" with their choices. As Venus enters Leo during this period a show-down can occur, which identity an individual decides to see themselves as can compete for the individual's attention giving much to-do within their internal process. This can also be a time where too much wishfulness overtakes and overwhelms one who has little point of reference for their version or take on things and as such is unable to find a solution which satisfies their current sense of identity. And yet for others this can be a time where some fantasy or perhaps an artistic type project gets a tweak or two and is as such improved in terms of it's direction and effectiveness at delivering the desired result. There is a great sense that ones super identity is building and this will be carried on for some time, for a year or more, yet for now, this short couple of days while the Moon transits Pisces, there is an opportunity to make an adjustment even though the trigger to make the adjustment may be a bit difficult to receive.
09 Wednesday August 13th - Moon enters Aries 9:01 AM
The big story in most everyone's life is our personal journey toward increased self love. Self love needs to be corrected if it is based on external validation and so it is self love of a nonchalant character which is most beneficial when allowed to unfold, to blossom. The Moon's transit through Aries may have some individuals questioning whether or not a courageous or bold action should be taken. The opinion of another's bold action can be a projection as it is not unusual that a single individual will act out the desire or thoughts of many others who remain complacent. The spontaneous action by the individual now will most likely be connected to their self love, the quality of which will develop from self ambition, self admiration, self esteem, the many angles which self love is explored. Self love is huge compared to these ways of feeling self assured yet it is through these means that we tenderly journey forward. For now it is our courage to trust our innate sense of freedom as it stirs and sprouts up via impulses. The feelings we have now of either resistance or sheer joy of being actively involved in life are to be expected as the Moon journeys through Aries. Now with the Sun transiting Leo and Uranus in Aries the manner in which one understands social position may come to influence their feelings about their boldness. Self admiration based on assumed social status is not an absolute law and so will not sustain congruency when following one's impulsive self. The impulsive self follows absolute law and so ignorance in the form of external validation is a prime target to get busted during this Moon in Aries transit. We can always trade in our beliefs, change up our beliefs for some new beliefs which can resonate at a higher harmonic. When our self love is based on our internal connection with creation and is never dependant on external confirmation our creations within the shared world will resonate with this quality, perhaps our energetic presence will trigger and inspire others to believe in themselves and void the need for external validation.
10 Friday August 15th - Moon enters Taurus 11:59 AM
Jupiter Leo quincunx Neptune Pisces Friday August 15th
Here in Taurus the Moon can be seen as an emotional inspection of our self confidence in regards to our public value, our professional value. There has been perhaps much activity lately given the increase in fire energy, particularly Leo. With all the flying around doing this that and everything in between it is nice to just sit still and feel our connection with the Earth. Our ability to do so may very well be connected to the sense of accomplishment we feel in terms of our job or career. As the Moon makes a Taurus ingress the Sun Mercury Venus and Jupiter are all in Leo and so our ability to feel the comfort and security of being an organic child of mother Earth will have most likely a direct relationship to our feeling about ourselves, our ability to simple like ourselves. Even if there are challenges concerning security, could be money or financial steadiness, it is to know that there is an exaggeration occurring now which is getting right in there and pulling to the surface any fear we have. The fear in this case will be a convolution for self respect verses our ability to create security. This can translate to our public value and being looked up to or not and why this is or how to fix our image, all that sort of stuff. Ideally we will feel the reality we want and be along for the ride. Being along for the ride however requires an ability to admit we have certain beliefs even if we don't want to. The easiest way of changing and discarding self debilitating beliefs is to simple admit them. We can feel better right away.
11 Sunday August 17th - Moon enters Gemini 6:42 PM
Venus conjuncts Jupiter in Leo adding to the already rising tide of self focus. This could mean a blinding need to be recognized as being important or an inspired optimistic urge to be influential. The Leo conjunction is quincunx Neptune in Pisces bringing a powerful chord of energy to those who feel the magic of compassion as it merges with and gives life to their dream vision. Some may either launch or advance a project which calls for a belief which is perhaps not so substantiated by tangible things but instead projected into reality by pure feeling. The Moon in Gemini can bring a social focus where ideas and information are shared publicly or with friends, the need to share details with friends is felt. Gemini loves to share energy and so in a sense we see here visions and dreams typically kept to oneself rising to conscious thought and shared through dialogue. The matter in which one is inspired to have a partner may be now designed into their inspiration vision and shared in hopes of creating a companion who can ride the dream as a shared experience. Mercury in Virgo is approaching opposition to Neptune in Pisces and so a critical way of logically grasping the concept another is giving energy to assisted, the exact details shared. In some cases there may be a failure to find common ground in terms of sharing some vision. The individual at which time can use the opportunity to be realistic as to what is practical and what is nebulous, what is real in terms of physical reality opposed to what is more a construct of fantasy. A blinding need to be socially validated may be fleshed out.
12 Wednesday August 20th - Moon enters Cancer 4:46 AM
Recent increases in assertiveness may be tested or tempered now by an unexpected increase in sensitivity. Things which remind one of their own vulnerability are actually extremely valuable to them however the caveat to this value is the individual must be able to accept responsibility for what is occurring to them. With both self importance and a need to be in control of some shared asset or shared experience charged up higher than usual right now relationship dynamics can occur which trigger emotional reactions that remind the individual of some feelings they thought were left safely in the past. Again it is an opportunity to recover segments of one's own essence as the event is simply the vehicle, the real value is in the process. As such it is the individual who is able to move from the event to the process who has the ability to expedite their evolving awareness. For those who tend toward admiring greatness in either themselves or in others there is big stuff happening now. Perhaps the control over shared resources will allow one to witness admirable qualities in another or perhaps the ability to share with authentic respect and concern for others will be a testimonial to how a self confident individual can be equally dedicated to self, partnership, and community. The opposition between Mercury in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces will bring some to the realization that a critical thought, a clear mind, is needed to deal with some overly influential perhaps delusional idea.
13 Friday August 22nd - Moon enters Leo 4:50 PM
Sun ingress Virgo Saturday August 23rd 12:47 AM
We have just recently, July 16th, entered a sustained Leo influence as indicated by Jupiter's Leo ingress. This current Leo Moon cycle as such has offered a launching pad for those who may tend to be exaggerated in their Leo character. And now as the Moon returns to Leo and we near the end of the current Moon cycle an overview of how urges, actions, and impulses lead to certain experiences will perhaps be revealed. To become blinded by the light of one's own elevated self confidence will be the lesson of some over the next year. For others their inspirational quality as a by-product of their joyous expression will influence others. Again either formula or the many flavors in between, something which indicates the type of year Jupiter has begun for the individual has likely been revealed during this current Moon cycle which began July 26th. Mercury currently transiting Virgo will be joined by the Sun which will ingress Virgo on Saturday indicating a shift to critical thinking and precision in communication. Relationships are very important now in that an individual sense of independence verses their partnership experiences are causing many to be increasingly realistic about boundaries. The Virgo energy will perhaps trigger many to get clear about their relationships in that their independent nature can become an asset in their partnership.
14 Monday August 25th - Moon enters Virgo 5:34 AM
Less than five hours after the Moon makes this Virgo ingress we have a new Moon. There are several indicators this Virgo Moon cycle will be colored by individuals taking actions to ensure their security. This security may involve the consideration of others and as such be an extension of an agenda which invites mutual benefit. The actions now in many cases will be spontaneous however the acts most certainly have preambles in terms of one's desire or concern regarding security. There can also be instances where a plan is well detailed within the consideration of a group mind and the actions are supported by all involved. Virgo gives a critical analysis of some situation and brings a precision to the actual assertion which will benefit those who are teamed up and ready to go in a mutually agreeable fashion. Venus in Leo is trine Uranus in Aries and is also aligned to Saturn and Vesta who are conjunct in Scorpio. Realizing how partnerships provide reflections of each others energy will be of extreme value right now and will give those who are aligned with this type of wisdom an opportunity to make strides and accomplishments favorable to their desired experiences. By allowing partnerships to show us things about ourselves a type of self responsibility occurs which opens up expanded views of one's situation.

As humanity has, in the last several years and continuing now, been going through identity discernment a questioning as to where one is headed and who the self is that is headed there may occur. The understanding of a particular identity will be connected to particular astro alignments and planetary placement. Personal astrology charts show us how things are connected from a vaster perspective. Knowing these connections and perspectives opens the door for more choices.
