The Sun is holding tight with a few allies in Leo- Venus, Jupiter and Mars. Venus is currently doing a review of what we value- individually and in our relationships- friendships, acquaintances, and lovers all are included in the recollection. What is important to us in areas of beauty, material life, and work/play balance? Are we able to fully express our innate creativity and individuality? How are our relationships falling into areas of drama and narcissism, rather than respectful appreciation of all the kids in the sandbox? As Jupiter has been in Leo for the past year, we may have felt some encouragement from the “God of Expansion” to live our drama, express our creative gifts, and play like naïve children seeking to shine our light as bright as possible. In that self-expression, we may have gotten carried away if rode the wave of “Me, Me, Me” too far into shore and hit the sand, or we may have discovered a part of ourselves that really needed to express. Tomorrow the tide will turn for Jupiter as it moves into Virgo. We may have become a little carried away in fiery Leo potentially expanding our waistlines or pocketbooks, only to get our health and grounded sensibility back as Virgo takes the reigns. The latest entrant into Leo is Mars, who is just beginning the journey. Jupiter may have set the stage or seeded the vision and now Mars will drive our desires to take action and make it happen until around Sept 24th when he moves into Virgo. You may find a desire to play and flirt with the game of life as the child within takes on center stage in the active parts of your life. Games, theatre, art and passionate “in the moment” assertion may find its way into your activities. To make things a bit more interesting, Saturn is holding court in the last degrees of Scorpio which causes friction to all the creative energy. Saturn wants us to be responsible and strategic with our time and not fritter away the moments in joyful self-discovery. Saturn is acting as the parent to the creative child. If they can work out their differences, the Leonean force will appreciate Saturn’s directive so that the flowing creativity can manifest. The relationships that are up for review can be harnessed in a stable container and achieve maturity while still honoring individual expression. All of this today is under the mood of Cancer, where the Moon has currently moved into this morning. The Moon is comfortable there as it is the “natural ruler”. The Moon concerns our heart and emotions so if you “feel” anything welling up inside you, pay attention and let it come out. A good cry may be what is in store so don’t fight it but rather, feel a sense of security as “Mother Moon” tries to help you engage your raw and pure heart space.
