Waxing Moon: From New Moon to Full Moon is the ideal time to do magic to draw things to you.

Moon in Sagittarius: Encourages confidence and flights of imagination. This is an adventurous, philosophical, and athletic Moon sign. Favors expansion and growth.

June’s Full Moon is called the Mead Moon, also known as Moon of Horses, Lover’s Moon, Strong Sun Moon, Honey Moon, Aerra Litha (Before Lithia), Brachmanoth (Break Month), Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, Moon of Making Fat.

June’s Power Flow: full but restful energy; protect, strengthen, and prevent. A time of Light; Earth tides are turning. Decision-making, taking responsibility for present happenings. Work on personal inconsistencies. Strengthen and reward yourself for your positive traits. (Source for June’s Moon info: Moon Magick by D.J. Conway)

Full Moon: The Moon’s most powerful phase, when we see her entire illuminated face. This a a time of fulfillment, activity, increased psychic ability, for perfecting ideas, “getting your act together,” celebrations, or renewing commitments to people or projects. The best time for spells of any kind.

June: The Moon of the month of Gemini, this period honors twins and the sacred marriage of the god and goddess, bringing two into one. (source: Moon Spells by Diane Ahlquist)

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 begin when the Moon is void-of-course rarely come to fruition, or they turn out very differently than planned.

Moon in Capricorn: Develops strong structure. Focus on traditions, responsibilities, and obligations. A good time to set boundaries and rules.

The Sun:
The Twins

Other Planetary Shifts:
Venus entered Cancer @ 3:48 a.m. U.S. Central

Venus in Cancer:

Venus in Cancer indicates a very sensitive, warm-hearted, protective, affectionate and deeply emotional romantic nature. For general well-being and emotional security you require a safe home and a loving family. In romance, your super-sensitive feelings are vulnerable to the least slight – you are very fragile in this area, thus easily hurt. Your lack of romantic self-confidence requires that your partner demonstrates constant affection and devotion. Your moodiness, sentimentality and tendency to sulk could present some problems, but on the whole, you are the ideal marriage partner in that you cherish your home and family, seeking a stable and affectionate domestic life.

Summary: Well, with the moon waxing to full in the power flows of June and Gemini, and with Venus shifting into Cancer it sounds like a day for honoring, celebrating, and re-enforcing love and relationships. Mercury’s influence along with Capricorn Lunar energy indicates this would be a great day for communication within relationships, including defining boundaries. I also have to include, for my own self, the influences of the day’s divinitory cards, so when celebrating and/or discussing love and relationships, I should do so from a higher consciousness, careful to keep morals in tact and not fall victim to “all about me” thinking.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

There is no reason for you to tolerate someone’s arrogance. Stand up for yourself.

You are feeling generous today — much more so than usual and so much so that it may draw attention (and praise) from an unexpected source. Keep it up and you’ll develop a great reputation!

Daily Extended
There is no reason for you to tolerate someone whose arrogance verges on rudeness today, no matter who they are. So if you feel you’re being taken advantage of or talked down to, do not hesitate to stand up for yourself and set this person right! Compromising your dignity is never acceptable. And if you are dealing with someone who you think might be unreasonable or even dangerous, then defend yourself by walking away. Do not dignify a bully by dealing with a bully.

Daily Flirt:
Your giant heart sometimes gets you in trouble, but today it’s nothing but rainbows and puppy dogs for you and your people! They adore your great energy, and you can’t help but help them out.

Daily Couples:
You’re generally happy, but you’re still feeling the urge to make some changes. If you’ve fallen into a routine with your sweetie, try mixing things up a bit. It doesn’t take much to make things seem new and interesting again.

Daily Singles:
Tired of waiting for Cupid to notice you? Get focused on the task at hand and grab your sexiest outfit for a night on the town with friends. You never know who’s eye you’ll catch.

Career & Finance:
Just like being in love magnifies someone’s good qualities, so disliking someone magnifies their bad qualities. Be professional, and don’t be bothered by such pettiness.
