*Planting Day

** Lammas (Lughnasadh) Celebration of the Harvest. Modern times make appreciation for harvest difficult, but back in the day, people’s livelihood was based on their crops. The harvest meant everything, and today marks the day of the traditional celebration of harvest, when people were able to reep the rewards of the seeds they’d planted in spring, and the laboring they’ve done through the summer to tend to their crops.

Today’s Tarot: Four of Pentacles, Inverted
Today’s Fairy Oracle: Making New Friends, Inverted

Thursday:
*Governed by Jupiter – expansion, money, prosperity, generosity (ties right in to today’s tarot card!)

Color:
*Green

The Moon:
*1st Quarter Waxing in Libra; Void-of-Course @ 4:01 a.m. US Central; Enters Scorpio @ 6:26 a.m. US Central

Waxing Moon: Waxing moon is where the moon is growing in the sky. Each night for two full weeks she grows in light, getting bigger and bigger in the sky until she reaches full moon. During the two weeks that the moon is waxing, it’s the best time for trying to draw things to you, encourage growth, or to “magnify” certain things in your life. Want your nails to grow longer? File them while the moon is waxing. Want your hair to grow faster? Trim it during waxing moon. Want to increase your finances? Focus your energies on improving finances during waxing moon. Waxing moon is the best time for starting new things, seeking new employment, or establishing “gain” in any area of your life (but remember, the zodiac position of the moon is also influencial, so reference where the moon is in the zodiac prior to working any magick).

When the moon is waxing, we feel more positive, more energized, more outgoing.

*Moon in Libra: Favors cooperation, compromise, social activities, balance, friendship, and partnership

*Moon 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 Scorpio: Increases awareness of psychic power. Precipitates psychic crises and ends connections thoroughly. People have a tendency to brood and become secretive.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Be self-centered in a professional sense — focus on things that help your career.

Overview
Watch out for ego conflicts today — and you might be one of the fighters! Your ability to sidestep delicate dramas is tested, so be ready for an onslaught of folks with nothing better to do.

Daily Extended
At work, now is the time for you to be a model employee in every sense of the word — important people are keeping an eye on you! So resist the urge to goof off when you have some free time. If you can, go back and double check your work to make sure you’ve covered all the details. Become self-centered in a professional sense — you should only pay attention to things today that will help you or your career. Gossiping or laughing do not make the cut.

Daily Flirt:
You’re proud of yourself, and with good reason, but you’ve still got to deal with some serious weirdness today — maybe folks are starting to ask stupid questions. Just roll your eyes and move on.

Daily Couples:
You seem to know intuitively just what to do to make your honey feel special. They may not even realize they’re giving you signs, but you’re picking them up and responding with just what they need.

Daily Singles:
When you find yourself attracted to someone new, watch for plotters in your midst. There could be a jealous pal who’d rather you stay single than couple up with another person. Be compassionate but hold your ground.

Daily Career:
Being thorough is easier than it seems. Don’t waste time looking too deeply. The answers you need for these particular issues are just beneath the surface.

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.

The Sun:
Gemini

The Twins

Modality: Mutable
Element: Air

3rd Sign of Zodiac

Color: Yellow
Anatomy: Hands and arms; lungs.
Keywords: talkative, mental, adaptable, flexible, changeable, responsive, sociable, superficial

Comparison with the Gemini symbol, the Twins:
Geminis are said to have a dual nature, as symbolized by twins. This duality also represents exchange and interaction. The sign of Gemini is closely associated with exchange of ideas, communication, and trade.

The sign of Gemini is thought to be very adaptable and flexible, sometimes to the point of “being” two different personalities.

The glyph for Gemini depicts two lines joined together, showing the symbolism of the twins, and the duality of the nature of the sign.

Sun in Gemini
(The Sun is in Gemini from approximately May 21 to June 20, depending on the year).

With the Sun in Gemini, the urge for self-expression is strong. These natives are often just as interested in collecting information as they are in sharing it. Curious to a fault, Geminis have a finger in every pie.

Solar Geminis are flexible and changeable people. Their ability to adapt quickly to new situations generally gains them plenty of friends and social contacts. Usually quite clever and witty, Geminis enjoy intellectual conversations and they are easily bored if they are not getting enough mental stimulation.

Often quite adept at fitting in with others, Geminis easily adopt the moods of those around them. They are friends to people from all walks of life, and are not easily intimidated. Their ability to detach themselves can make Geminis very objective and observant, but a little difficult to get close to. Although they often have many friends, intimacy doesn’t come as easily to Solar Geminis.

It can be difficult to know what Gemini really feels at any given moment. They are often very impressionable and scattered. There is usually a nervous air to Geminis that can make more personal characters a little uneasy. It is not always intuitive to trust Geminis to be loyal or to keep secrets.

Geminis often flit about, moving quickly and keeping busy every step of the way. Many people with this position of the Sun have gained quite a bit of knowledge in their lifetimes, but they don’t often possess specialized knowledge. This is because Geminis have relatively short attention spans. Restlessness is especially common with this position of the Sun.

Usually quite affable, Geminis enjoy the “light” side of life. This tendency to take things lightly makes them quite pleasing to be around; but it can be maddening to people seeking support on the deeper issues in life.

Geminis are both interesting and interested. Their wit can be dazzling and their changeability dizzying. At the very least, Geminis will seldom bore you.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Get beneath the surface of small talk today and zero in on what people really mean.

Overview
Life is good for you and your friends and you should find that they can help with a surprising array of issues in your life. You may feel like a kid in some ways, but it’s not so bad!

Daily Extended:
You will be able to get beneath surface-level small talk today and zero in on what people really want to talk about, quickly. Of course, whether you pursue their true intentions or not is totally up to you. If you are sensing that someone you don’t like very much has a crush on you, for example, you should switch the subject! But if you’re interested in them too, this is your chance to work a few double entendres into your conversation. Heat things up a bit!

Daily Flirt:
Try to make sure you’re connected with people today — friends, acquaintances, even exes. You may be surprised by who’s ready to help and in what ways. Your network is your strength!

Daily Couples:
Let your playful side come out tonight, and make fun and games your date night plan. Surprise your sweetie with a trip to an arcade, or a shopping spree at a toy store. Finish your night with the bedtime story of your choice.

Daily Singles:
It’s not easy to step into the dating scene without taking a few things personally. Your courageous spirit guides you through the creeps and losers to someone worthy of your time and affections.

Career & Finance:
Where does your craving for recognition come from? You yearn to be downright brilliant in order to get noticed. Instead, focus on the light shining from others to illuminate your own dark places.
