The Moon:
3rd Quarter Waning in Aquarius, void-of-course @ 12:14 a.m., enters Pisces @ 2:46 a.m.

Waning Moon: Waning moon is when the moon appears to be shrinking in the sky, the last two weeks of the moon’s twenty-eight day cycle. Each night the light of the moon gets smaller and smaller until ultimately, the moon appears invisible and is completely out of sight. During this two weeks, it’s best for doing magickal workings to rid yourself of things, to cast away negative energies, or to break habits. If you want to keep your nails short, trim them during waning moon. Want to slow the growth of your hair? Cut it during waning moon. Want to end a certain relationship? Waning moon is best. Quit smoking? Lose weight? Waning moon lends its energies to these types of magickal workings.

Moon in Aquarius: *Rebellious energy. Time to break habits and make abrupt change. Personal freedom and individuality is the focus.

Void-of-Course: *Just before the Moon enters a new sign, it will make one final aspect (angular relationship) to another planet. Between that last aspect and the entrance of the Moon into the next sign it is said to be void-of-course. Activities begun when the Moon is void-of-course rarely come to fruition, or they turn out very differently than planned.

Moon in Pisces: *The focus is on dreaming, nostalgia, intuition, and psychic impressions. A good time for spiritual or philanthropic activities. (Ties in perfectly with that Queen of Cups, dontchya think?)

The Sun Rules the Sign of Leo

  • On the downside: You may have a heavy ego, and you can be arrogant, vain, and extravagant.
  • Your good qualities include: A strong vitality, honorable, creative, generous, dignified.
  • Developing your own self identity and mode of creative energy expression will be your ongoing life’s work.

Leo has a great deal of self confidence but they also have a great fear of being ridiculed and made to feel disgraced. While Leo is very affectionate there is a tendency to have things their way and may rapidly lose interest if they are challenged too often for the leading role. They will have to learn to discipline themselves against their overall enthusiasm for living life to the fullest, which is to say, dangerously on the edge. The creative urge in Leos should never be stifled as to do so a good deal of potential will be wasted.

Leos are found as painters, actors, or sculptors; but not all Leos are in the public arts, no, rather they can be found in the throes of creation doing their projects on the kitchen table. They have an infectious vitality that lights up their lives like an inner sun and illuminates not only their lives, but the lives of those around them. Lack of fulfillment in life, professionally or personally, can destroy these bright and shinning people and cloud their personalities.Leos need control in their lives to be really satisfied so organization is absolutely essential to their peace of mind.

A leo should cultivate a flexible mind as they do not always ‘know best’.

Only when this trait is cultivated can the characteristic Leonine warmth, generosity, and desire to really understand others be fully indulged.

The lions love and adore children as they bring out the inner child. Leos are surprisingly sensitive and easily hurt, but they do have a tendency to dominate and this should never be underestimated. It is always meant well as they only want to bring out the best in the people they care about, or work with. They also tend toward impatience and they should make curbing these traits a lifelong objective. Born leaders, they can take command of a situation in any emergency and see it through to its completion. The enthusiams they acquired in childhood will generally last a lifetime and may even dictate the career one would choose.

They can be too status conscious, causing themselves much anguish when, or if, they cannot keep up with others in their immediate circle. They can also be quite overbearing and vain when they feel they are being challenged. On the other hand, the lions make great lovers and parents, giving more to a relationship than most of the other signs. They are good honorable persons and good providers.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Adamant about having no financial dealings with friends? You should rethink that.

Overview
You should be able to feel the creative energy welling up in you from deep within — so make sure to do something cool with it! You don’t have to create a masterpiece, but you should at least try something new.

Daily Extended:
You’ve mixed business with your personal life in the past, and it was a big mistake. So when it looks like it might happen again, it’s understandable that respond by being adamant about having no financial dealings with people who you consider friends. But by sticking to this strict policy, you could be missing out on a great thing. There are exceptions to every rule, and today you should put some extra effort into determining whether or not this could be one of them.

Daily Flirt:
Things might be weird today, but you can get just as weird in response! Try to show off your creative side, because there’s at least one interested party who really wants to see it.

Daily Couples:
Your creative side hasn’t been getting enough attention lately, and it’s time to change that. For inspiration, take your sweetie on date to the art museum; then come home and work on your masterpiece.

Daily Singles:
When in an argument today, try not to fly off the handle. If you remain calm and collected, you could avoid a complete blowout altogether. Take the mature route instead of acting like a crazed fanatic. Excuse yourself before you say something you’ll regret.

Career & Finance:
Don’t react, respond. Just because others fly off the handle doesn’t mean you have to. You can put out the fire more effectively by avoiding reacting emotionally.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Don’t brag about how healthy you are becoming — everyone makes different choices.

Overview
You’re excited about something big that seems like it could change your life, but you may need to keep it to yourself for the time being. Things are still complicated for your people and they need to approach you.

Daily Extended
The work you’ve been putting in at the gym is starting to pay off, but not everyone has been following your progress as closely as you think — don’t get upset if no one has noticed you lost a pound or gained some muscles. And whatever you do, don’t brag about how healthy you are becoming — especially right in front of a friend of yours who’s about to lunge into an ice cream sundae! You have to be sensitive to the fact that not everyone will make the same kinds of choices that you have.

Daily Flirt:
You’re all excited over something new, but you need to let other folks have their say too! It’s sadly easy to get wrapped up in your own business so much that everyone else decides to ignore you!

Daily Couples:
Your honey has something on their mind. Let them give you all the details before you offer any advice. Just saying it out loud may help them figure out what they need to do.

Daily Singles:
A strong sense of what you want comes in handy when pursuing a new lover. Nothing holds up romance faster than a wishy-washy partner. Make sure you tell this new person exactly what you want and when. Confidence is sexy.

Career & Finance
Some may look at you and mutter, have you no self respect? But others look at you and see someone working with unbridled enthusiasm. You know which is your boss and which is the competition.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Today, you should focus on meeting people and on building some new relationships.

Overview
Change is in the air and you’re enjoying what you see. It’s a good time to take the lead and try to steer things in a direction that you find more amenable. Your friends look to you for answers.

Daily Extended
Today, you should focus on meeting people and on building new relationships — your current ones are all doing well enough to be left alone for a while. You have the right amount of curiosity for what makes other people tick right now, and you know just the right questions to ask. Plus, your easygoing manner will help them loosen up and really be themselves. So if you’re torn between hanging out with an old friend or going to a gathering where you can meet someone new, opt for the newness.

Daily Flirt:
Sometimes, one little change can have a huge impact — and you’re right tin the middle of one! It’s pretty sweet to see your life rearrange itself, and you can tell that it’s almost all for the best!

Daily Couples:
You’ve got the travel bug, and you’ve got it bad! Spend some time pouring over the travel section of the paper with your sweetie and start planning that dream vacation together.

Daily Singles:
Pursuing someone new can be thrilling and scary at the same time. While you desire a totally fiery romance, take your time exploring what turns them on and off. There’s no rush to get to the finish line. Enjoy discovering where their passion lies.

Career & Finance:
Everyone needs a pat on the back every once in a while. If you saw someone slacking off you wouldn’t mince words. So don’t hold back on the praise, either. In fact, be downright magnanimous with it.

The horoscope aligns quite nicely with today’s Tarot card, including the need for travel!

Other Planetary Shifts:
Mercury enters Virgo at 5:51 a.m. US Central

Mercury in Virgo gives an intelligent, strong, versatile and analytical mind with great powers to attend to detail. You have a good memory and the ability to think practically and constructively. Your mental disposition is well-suited to demanding intellectual work and you may find success in fields such as science, teaching, administration or in jobs requiring detailed analytical ability. There is some predisposition to nervous excitement, headaches and needless worry over trivial matters.

Source: http://www.astrologyweekly.com/learn-astrology/mercury-in-virgo.php

With Mercury in Virgo you’re practical, logical, quick, precise, and have fine attention to detail as well as good common sense. Although Mercury rules Virgo and is thus strongly placed in this sign of discrimination, you must not forget that the world you live in is governed by emotions, prejudice and self-interest, not by logic. Be careful of getting bogged down on the small stuff or criticism in your relationships. You tend to be honest and a good speaker, but also intolerant of minds that are not as good as your own.

Source: http://www.myastrologybook.com/Mercury-in-Virgo-all-about-Virgo-Mercury.htm

Mercury will enter its own sign and exaltation, Virgo, on August 10th. This is great news for Mercury, which has been in a relatively weak position since it left Gemini in early July. But Mercury could not be any happier than it is in Virgo, a mutable/double earth sign, where the Trickster gets to apply all he’s learned to the real world. Mercury is right at home in mundane affairs, indeed. The only problem is that he rarely looks at the big picture, so busy is he running to and fro.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
This isn’t the time to go solo with your projects — teamwork is the best way to go.

Overview
Sit down with your family or coworkers and talk about the blue-sky stuff that doesn’t come up all that often. At least one person is sure to be surprised by how optimistic the rest of the group is.

Daily Extended
This is not the time to go solo with your projects. Teamwork is the best way to make good things happen in your life, now. There is real power in numbers, and it’s your task today to get together with as many other people as you can. Whether you join a group of people in order to get things done, travel to another country, or just sit around playing a board game, the crowd’s energy is where it’s at! One of the people you’ll be hooking up with today has something to teach you.

Daily Flirt:
You and your friends need to talk things over — you may be surprised to learn there’s a lot more going on between you than you’d ever have guessed. Once you all know what you want, getting it is easy.

Daily Couples:
Do something today that you’ve been been putting off; perhaps a task that your sweetie has been after you do to. Don’t say a word about it, just do it! You’ll feel great when you can cross it off your list.

Daily Singles:
Being indecisive on whether to accept an invitation could frustrate the host. Agree to attend only if you know for a fact you will be there. Otherwise, let the host know that you’re honored to be included but life is too chaotic to venture out.

3rd Quarter Waning in Aries

Waning Moon: Waning moon is when the moon appears to be shrinking in the sky, the last two weeks of the moon’s twenty-eight day cycle. Each night the light of the moon gets smaller and smaller until ultimately, the moon appears invisible and is completely out of sight. During this two weeks, it’s best for doing magickal workings to rid yourself of things, to cast away negative energies, or to break habits. If you want to keep your nails short, trim them during waning moon. Want to slow the growth of your hair? Cut it during waning moon. Want to end a certain relationship? Waning moon is best. Quit smoking? Lose weight? Waning moon lends its energies to these types of magickal workings.

Moon in Aries: You may be inclined to speak your mind more openly and aggressively, but expect others to do the same, and don’t be surprised if opinions conflict and tempers rise. Great ideas may spark, but the flames are quickly exhausted (no long burning embers here!), so jot the ideas down while they’re free-flowing, and manifest them later when the moon/sign combination is more in favor of long term results. Harness the spontaneous energy brought by the moon’s visit with Aries, but resist the tendency to be impulsive or headstrong. Emotions may run strong, but reason is required, so work at maintaining balance between heart and mind, without letting them go to war with one another.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Someone from a drastically different background will change one of your opinions.

Overview
You’re all about fun today, even if you’re behind a desk or dealing with difficult children. Somehow, your good energy shines through and you let people see how great life can be!

Daily Extended
You’ll meet up with someone from a drastically different background today, and they will have something serious to say that you should pay attention to, even if no one else wants to. This is a good learning experience for you, and when they share their ideas or thoughts with you, they are showing you that they trust you. You should respect that trust and return it by opening your mind and reserving judgment. They just might change one of your longest-held opinions.

Daily Flirt:
Your good mood is impossible to kill today, and you should find yourself smiling and humming no matter where you are or what’s going on around you. Encourage others to follow your lead!

Daily Couples:
One of your long-held beliefs may be challenged by your partner today. Instead of reacting negatively, hear them out. If you feel the point they’re making is a valid one, consider adapting your own opinion.

Daily Singles:
Today you might meet someone who changes your opinion about what’s considered romantic. Open your mind to the possibility that chivalry and tender gestures are not a thing of the past. The actions might be impractical but they sure are amorous.

Career & Finance
Don’t have any financial dealings until you’re sure. Listening to instinct will only elucidate so much. If you want things to really be clear, there’s no substitute for good, old-fashioned research.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
When you look beneath the surface with a newcomer, you won’t find any substance.

Overview
Your good energy is great for quietly social activities and you’re feeling good enough to clear away any weirdness that may be clouding your family or friends. Enjoy the day and encourage others to do the same.

Daily Extended:
No one can get away with their fronting in front of you, today! When some hipster comes along talking about how important they are, you won’t buy it — nor should you. Have some fun with them. Ask them a few questions that put them on the spot. It will be quickly obvious to everyone that when you look beneath the surface, you won’t find much real substance there. Other people in your circle will wise up soon, so don’t worry about anyone else falling for this person.

Daily Flirt:
You’ll work together with someone you’re not so sure about — but after just a few minutes, you realize you’re a better combination than you would have expected. Hooray for life’s little surprises!

Daily Couples:
If something has been troubling you, don’t wait any longer to talk about it with your sweetheart. It’s better to have a difficult conversation now and get it done with than to let it stew and become a bigger issue.

Daily Singles:
Your ego has a habit of getting in the way of your heart. Self assurance is important, but lately your swagger is upstaging your true personality. Start acting more modest, unless you want to continue to make inaccurate first impressions as a smug smarty pants.

Career & Finance:
Don’t let evening plans sabotage your daylight hours. It’s hard to stay focused when you’ve got a date but that’s what’s called for. Staring at the computer screen just doesn’t cut it.

Comparison with the Cancer symbol, the Crab:
A crab is able to walk or run sideways. Similarly, Cancer natives can sometimes “move about” in life, in a figurative sense, in an indirect manner. The crab’s body is covered by a carapace (shell). Cancer natives are self-protective and sensitive, and often retreat into themselves when hurt. Crabs are able to resist changes in the environment, thereby protecting themselves from hostile elements in various habitats. Similarly, Cancer natives are thought to avoid too much change, and to be on the defensive. Crabs have “complex behavior patterns” (1). The inner world of Cancer natives is thought to be rather quirky and complex. Some crabs “conceal themselves by decorating their bodies with plants and animals” (2). Cancer natives tend to try to blend in with their environments, preferring not to make a big splash in life.

Cancer’s glyph, or symbol, may represent the breasts as a symbol of the nurturing qualities of the sign.

Sun in Cancer

(The Sun is in Cancer from June 21-22 to July 22-23, depending on the year).
Sun in Cancer natives have a strong survival instinct. They are protective of those they care about, and of themselves too. They are often quite reticent about sharing their inner selves to the rest of the world, and are often caught up in reminisce.

Cancers have a reputation for moodiness, although this trait is most evident when the Moon is in Cancer. Cancer needs roots. They resist change to an extent, and concern themselves about being secure and safe in most everything they do.

Cancers can be quite intrigued by objects with history attached to them — antiques, photos, souvenirs, and the like.

Cancer is a very sensitive sign, and they don’t always appreciate it when you are blunt with them. Their reactions to hurt will depend on how thick a shell they have developed. Most Cancers react by withdrawing or retreating. Some have developed an ability to manipulate others to get what they want. They avoid direct confrontations almost as a rule.

Cancers are, in fact, quite yielding and soft when you have them in the right mood. They are one of the more hospitable signs of the zodiac. Sure, they can be touchy and indirect, but they are also very dependable, caring souls.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
You’re creative, so why not create something? Make a gift for a special person.

Overview
Keep your hands on your wallet today — it’s not a good time to make purchases, especially with others. If you’ve got to get something, then see if you can go it alone for the time being.

Daily Extended
Overview
You are a very creative person, so why not create something today? You don’t have to paint a painting or create a typical type of artwork — baking cookies, putting together a new outfit, or even making a mixed CD are all great ways to express yourself in a unique way. Create something for someone you care about and give them your creation as a gift — they’ll appreciate the extra effort and thoughtfulness, and they’ll love showing you their gratitude.

Daily Flirt:
You need to chill out about money today, because it’s just not going to get any better until other people start to do what they need to do — and you can’t make them! It’s a good time to walk away from the table.

Daily Couples:
A comment that you meant as a joke gets taken the wrong way by your loved one. Don’t try to convince them that you were only kidding. Just say you’re sorry and carry on.

Daily Singles:
Things may not be crystal clear when it comes to matters of the heart. But that’s half the fun. If you could predict future relationships would you ever go out of the house again?

Career & Finance
All that glitters is not gold, that much you know. But just what do you value, besides money? Do some research before you have any financial dealings, to make sure you know exactly what you’re looking for.
