Moon in Lively Leo This Weekend!

Astro New Moon CrescentUpbeat and dramatic, Saturday and Sunday’s Leo Moon can treat us to a flirty, creative time complete with spotlights, sequins and sizzle. This Sun ruled Fire sign, the 5th sign of the Zodiac,  wants us to be kind and generous in spirit while indulging in its natural inclination to show up and show off.

Leo melodrama may not always be “fun”, (there may be some pushing and shoving as too many folks try to sparkle at the same time) but it won’t be boring.

Make it a weekend to remember!

 

 

Sun Into Sensual, Security Minded Taurus!

astrology_chartwheel 2On Monday April 20, 2015, the Sun moves into stubborn and determined Taurus. It has the Bull as its Astrology symbol, however, since it is ruled by the lovely, romantic planet Venus, this sign has several other dimensions. It can be stuck and immovable, but also, a sensual lover of beauty, good food and luxury. While appreciating all the comforts, the second sign of the Zodiac also wants us to be safe and secure.

Regardless of our actual Sun sign, for the next few weeks we can all tap into those Taurean traits of strength and endurance so that we solidify and complete the projects started during the high energy of the Aries Sun. Watch out for a tendency to be overcautious – don’t miss an opportunity out of fear. Security is attractive, especially in this financial climate, but, sometimes we have to take a second look to see the advantage.

With a Taurus Sun, loved ones are treated to poetry, music and gourmet meals, while getting a lecture on avoiding financial pot holes – nice mix.

** Sun into Taurus, 4/20/15 –  5:42 AM Eastern / 2:42 AM Pacific

***As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Taurus, but the rest of us will still feel the stable influences somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Earth sign appears in the birth chart.

Aries New Moon This Weekend!

Astro New Moon CrescentOn Saturday April 18, 2015, the “New Moon” provides us with a great time to initiate projects and make changes. The Sun has been in Aries, the 1st sign of the Zodiac, since 3/20 and with both luminaries in this assertive, often rambunctious Fire sign, expect some volatile, combustible happenings. Beware of rash moves and acting/speaking without thinking, but since the sign is ruled by active, energetic planet Mars, you can take advantage of all that good aggressive physicality. Go for it! (But, keep the flame thrower in the closet.)

“New” energy will last a few weeks – even as the sign changes to solid,  earthy Taurus. (Full Moon May 3, 2015- best time to complete what you started.)

*Aries New Moon: 2:57PM EDT – 11:57AM PDT

Libra Full Moon On Saturday

Astro Moon FullA Full Moon will be in classy Libra on April 4, 2015. This Air sign is ruled by the lovely Venus and hopefully this will make us more inclined to cooperate with partners, seek balance in negotiations, and remain calm during deliberations.

A great time to do all of the above while being super social, beautifying both ourselves and our surroundings at the same time. If the Libra Moon can help us tune out / tone down any negative, angry voices around us (or in our heads), terrific.

And, have a great weekend!

*Full Moon in Libra: April 4, 2015 – 8:50 AM EDT / 5:05 AM PDT

FYI: As I’ve mentioned in this space before, a ”Full” Moon phase packs power and can give our thoughts clarity. It starts the “waning” or decreasing, of the Lunar orb, a good time to gather results or confront the useless – clean up old projects, get rid of outmoded thought patterns and  attitudes in order to clear the way for the next “New” Moon in 2 weeks.
