Shortly after one o’clock this morning the Moon entered into the loving, warm hearted Fire sign Leo, where she’ll remain through Wednesday morning. During this time, a positive, engaging approach to life, being encouraging of others, wishing to express and receive affection, helps define Lunar Leo.
Of course it’s also possible the sign of the Lion can be a bit self centered and autocratic, with a deep need to be admired and in the spotlight. Letting your love light shine upon others with qualities of both enthusiasm and humility is the ideal use of Lunar Leo energy.
Around sundown the rays of Saturn will productively interact with the Moon, helping us have both a sense of patience and quiet confidence.
Yet most meaningful today is that just after 7 PM Venus will move into sociable, intellectual Libra, where she’ll stay for about three weeks. The Goddess of Love and Justice is most comfortable in the sign that seeks harmony and balance, preferring peaceful solutions while also being concerned for the needs of others. An appreciation of beauty in all forms, cultivating one’s artistic talents, expressing affection, and loving to socialize, will be highlighted during this time as well.
If you’re feeling a bit wired today, or your mind is overactive but maybe focused as well, it’s because Mercury will be turning retrograde around sunrise tomorrow. We’ll be discussing the best ways to use Mercury retrograde in your daily life on Tuesday, so stay tuned.
