We welcome the Sun King Leo on Saturday, July 22, 2017. Don’t be surprised if there are sudden, unexplained cravings for sparklers, sequins and confetti. Just go with it. The Sun rules the 5th sign of the Zodiac and you can tell. We’ll feel strong, upbeat, magnanimous, a bit more dramatic and drawn to the spotlight regardless of our actual Astrology sign. Leo doesn’t get shyness. We are urged to seek attention, to be colorfully creative and to cheerfully accomplish goals. As the Sun settles into this regal Fire sign, expect to have some fun for the duration of its stay.
Verbal and written interactions become livelier and sharper due to Communication planet Mercury’s Leo transit from 7/6 to 7/26/17. Remember to share the conversation, let someone else get a word in – it’s not all about you.
Adding to the energy will be aggressive “Warrior” Mars transiting Leo, 7/21 til 9/4/17. Being overly confident and perhaps impatient for attention, might lead to taking risks just to be first in front of the camera – real or imaginary. This could make us sloppy and reckless. Check the parachute before attempting the longest free fall airplane drop in the Guinness Book of Records. (Verify the distance between drop height & ground) Preen for the close up once safely on land.
Basking in a Leo Sun can be a good time. Enjoy!
Sun into Leo: July 22, 2017 * 11:16 AM EDT / 8:16 AM PDT
*Gemstone – Tiger’s Eye *Power colors- Gold, orange (Sun colors) * Body Part – Heart (…of a lion!)
(Next up – Virgo Sun 8/22/17)
On Tuesday, August 2, 2016, the Sun is in Leo (since 7/22) and the Moon will be too. The Lunar orb will be in its “New” phase, a great time to use the often dramatic, ambitious, enthusiastic vibrations natural to the 5th sign off the Zodiac to start a project, enroll a special someone in your life, do a sparkling presentation or dynamite audition. Also, solar driven joy and confidence bodes well for the opportunity to have fun with any melodrama that might ensue. (Drama doesn’t always have to be a hissy fit.)
This active, initiating New Moon energy lasts for approximately 10 days until the Full Moon on 8/18/16 (best to finalize, complete projects). As the Zodiac sign changes, a different part of your chart (life) will be impacted.
*Leo New Moon: 8/2/16 – 4:44PM EDT / 1:44PM PDT
Saturday’s Full Moon, January 23, 2016, will be in dramatic, Fire sign Leo – no better way to heat up, perk up a winter weekend! A “Full” phase intensifies the traits of the sign it is visiting and with Sun ruled Leo, (its Zodiac symbol is the glorious Lion, King of the jungle) we feel generous, creative and get the urge to flame and sparkle while flitting across the world stage. (“Look at me!”).
So step into the spotlight, wear some regal purple, be royally magnanimous to your subjects (friends and family) and have a great time. Also, use the Full Moon’s energy to finish projects begun at the time of the last New Moon (1/9/16). Its considered a fortunate time to take care of loose ends and it will last for about 10 days even as the Moon moves into efficient Virgo on Monday.
- Leo Full Moon: January 23. 2016 – 8:46PM EST / 5:46PM PST
Both luminaries in the same sign means = “New Moon”. The Sun moved into ambitious, generous, enthusiastic Leo on July 22, 2015 and on Friday August 14th, the Moon will also be in the same regal Fire sign. Since this particular Moon phase is always great for beginnings, take it as a sign of encouragement to start something in the next few days. Solar driven joy and confidence bodes well for an active, energetic, creative time. Have fun with any melodrama that might ensue. (Drama doesn’t always have to be a hissy fit.)
This initiating energy lasts for approx 10 days until the Full Moon (finalize, complete projects). As the Zodiac sign changes, a different part of your chart (life) will be impacted. Next up on Saturday morning, Virgo – health, work, service.
Leo New Moon: 8/14/15 – 10:53AM EDT / 7:53AM PDT
All day Friday March 27, 2015, until late Saturday evening, the Moon is comfortable in the sign it rules, caring, cautious Cancer. On Sunday, the Lunar orb sparkles in light seeking, live it up Leo. The weekend is split between these very different Moon energies – make it work.
Water sign Cancer brings feelings and emotions close to the surface. Moodiness could get in the way of what you might enjoy better – the care and feeding of friends, family, strays. Choose.
Life perks up as the Moon jumps into Fire sign Leo. It’s ruled by the Sun, so there is a natural pull towards “shine on me” melodrama and theatrics. It could turn into a hot mess when everyone demands their close up at the same time. Or, it could be loads of fun. Choose.
Have a great weekend!
Tuesday’s Full Moon, 2/3/15, will be in dramatic, Fire sign Leo – no better way to heat up, perk up a long winter! A “Full” phase intensifies the traits of the sign it is visiting and with Sun ruled Leo, (its Zodiac symbol is the glorious Lion, King of the jungle) we feel generous, creative and get the urge to flame and sparkle while flitting across the world stage. (“Look at me!”).
So take that spotlight, wear some regal purple, be royally magnanimous to your subjects (friends and family) and have a great time. Also, use the Full Moon’s energy to finish projects begun at the time of the last New Moon (1/20/15). Its considered a fortunate time to complete things and it will last for about 10 days even as the Moon moves into practical Virgo on Wednesday.
*Full Moon: February 3, 2015 – 6:09PM EST / 3:09PM PST
Champagne, chocolates, feathers, sequins, dramatic declarations all work well, regardless of partner, with the attention seeking 5th sign of the Zodiac. For Valentine’s Day, Friday February 14, 2014 the Moon will be on “Full” power in generous, ”let’s have fun” Fire sign Leo. Enjoy it all, but also note that a “Full” phase is good for wrapping things up, finishing what began at the time of the last New Moon. The effects will last for a few days even as the Lunar orb moves on to the next sign, Virgo.
The Moon will be in service oriented, practical Earth sign Virgo Saturday and Sunday. From upbeat Leo to conscientious and ready to tackle the details Virgo – it’s all good. Take advantage of the Full phase’s continued vibe by using this Mercury ruled sign’s cleverness and penchant for detail. You can get things done.
(Just in case I haven’t been clear in my weekend update Astrology posts, my premise is that as the Moon changes signs, so does our moods, our energy and often how we act/react in the day to day.)
Full Moon 2/14/14: 6:53 PM EST / 3:53PM PST
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Wednesday, January 15, 2014, finds us with a Full Moon in the nurturing, sensitive Water sign of Cancer at 11:52 PM EST/ 8:52 PM PST. So, as a “New” Moon is best for beginning projects- starting something new, implementation of ideas – the “Full” phase (Moon opposes the Sun in the sky, as it “wanes” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters) is optimum for the finalization of projects, plans, etc.
Cancer is family and home focused, so completing old business may involve where you live – clearing out the old, giving space to the new. Gather up and give away anything no longer useful or positive in your space, whether it be things, feelings or conversations. Good time to get rid of what’s “done and dusted” and move on to what’s next.
FYI: The Moon shifts into regal, Fiery Leo early the next morning, however, “Full” energy remains for approximately 10 days. Crystallization is best done during the final Moon quarters. The circle begins again at the next New Moon phase, January 30th.
This weekend, the Moon will shift us thru a variety of moods. It’s all good, we can handle it.
The Lunar orb is in generous, dramatic (great for actors), attention seeking, creative Leo on Friday and Saturday, December 20 and 21. Ruled by the Sun, this fun loving Fire sign may add some drama, but we will be active, upbeat, and magnanimous, which can make for a really good time.
On Sunday, the energy changes when the Moon moves into Earthy, service oriented Virgo. Its traits of practicality and responsibility will give focus to doing what is needed. Take care of loose ends, pay attention to the details, handle business – accomplishment is exciting and makes you feel proud:)
Whatever you do, make it a weekend to remember!
Saturday and Sunday, 10/26 & 10/27, we are treated to a Fiery Leo Moon and all that it involves. The weekend can be full of fun, largesse, a little bit of showing off and lots of regal generosity of spirit. Enjoy any festivities you find yourself in the middle of whether planned or unplanned. The 5th sign of the Zodiac is ruled by the Sun so a natural drift toward theatrics and melodrama could push thru. Take it in stride.
As you’re surrounded by lights and glittering confetti, just remember that it’s not all about you. Share the spotlight.
Have a sparkling weekend!
