The Sun’s visit to Leo~

The Sun is now in Leo!

Leo Sun, 2018

 

The Sun will be in its natural dignity as it enters Leo, to last until Wednesday, August 22. Leo, the sign of creative expression, loyalty, and leadership is ruled by the Sun, the galaxy’s brightest star, giving you a unique opportunity to shine and release the part of you that longs for recognition. While Cancer, the preceding sign is emotional and internal, Leo is light hearted and extroverted. Keep this in mind when encountering a situation that requires you to act with confidence, for this is what Leo does best!

 

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

Parties and other social festivities will keep you feeling fresh and up to date. You’ll have extra sex- appeal, so take advantage and take the stage whenever possible. If you’re an actor or other performing artist, now is the time to get yourself seen, as your talent will make you stand out. If you’re currently not involved in a project, create one; a showcase, script-reading, screening, or other self-produced event will likely be a fabulous way to build creative momentum.

 

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Throw a dinner party with an exclusive invitation list, and you’ll shine light on your most cherished relationships. Give your living space a lift with a new look that brings in as much Sun as possible, as this will lift your mood and keep you in good spirits. Throw a game night if you need some new company, as you’ll likely come out a winner in more ways than one! If you have children in your life, extra play time will add sunshine to your life as you experience the joy of childhood.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Creative writing will bring out the best in you, so if an idea for a short story of poem comes to you, put pen to paper (or your fingers to your i-pad), and you’ll be on a roll. Take a master class from great story tellers such as Judy Blume, Shonda Rhymes, or indulge in a little Shakespeare, and you’ll set your imagination to new heights. If you’re in sales (a most people are in one way or another) you’ll have impressive powers of persuasion. Hold true to your strongest opinion, observation, or analysis and your confidence will soar.

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Put the spotlight on your talent and what makes you unique, as this will likely lead to a new money making opportunity. What are you really good at Cancer? You’ll benefit from giving this serious thought, especially if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur. An updated wardrobe, new hair style, or new piece of furniture will add a touch of luxury to your life to help you feel like the extra special person you are. This is the time to treat yourself, and uphold the value of your natural talent.

 

 LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Whatever you dare to do or be, now is the time to step into the spotlight and make it happen. With the galaxy’s brightest star (the Sun) shining in its natural sign of Leo, you’ll have the vitality to set a new personal best. Leo is a sign of fixed, fiery energy, so when you put your mind to going for what you want, it’s over…the gold medal is practically in your hands! Enter a triathlon and unleash the warrior within, open your heart of hearts to someone special, or make a surprise appearance, and you’ll shine.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Dream a little dream and before long it will likely become a grand inspiration, so pay attention to the quiet voice within, and the images that linger with you after you awake. As the Sun enters Leo your chart’s most mystical arena will ignite, known in astrology as the twelfth house. The twelfth house is like the gate way between reality and other dimensions that are felt but not seen. Your greatest power will come from your intuition and gut instinct- if it feels right, it will likely feel very right. Follow your inner compass and you’ll likely land exactly where you need to be.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Step into the crowd and become part of a vision or cause that’s bigger than you, and you’ll find new inspiration to propel you forward toward a long term goal. You’ll have a way with people now, and can get the attention of a VIP if you develop a full proof strategy and stick with it. If your best friend or closest colleague invites you to an exclusive party or public event, by all means go because you’ll likely make an important connection. Be mindful that a modest introduction may in fact turn out to be a real game changer down the road, as someone who can pull a lot of strings may initially test your true intentions with a very low key persona.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Now the Sun (the solar system’s brightest star) is at the pinnacle of your chart, and will put your greatest ambition in the spotlight. If you’re in transition and looking for a bigger and better opportunity, have courage to take a risk and let others know where you’re headed because your confidence will be contagious. Look for an opportunity to showcase what you do. A symposium, conference, or expo will likely give you a fabulous platform to shine will also attracting a quality opportunity. Above all, know that you are a natural leader. Once you relax into this wisdom, you’ll allow the flow of success to flow through you.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Leo, like Sagittarius, is also a fire sign, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling more like your usual optimistic self. Travel as much as you can, as meeting new people and having new life experiences will help you gain perspective and realize what’s really important in your life. If a citizenship matter or global pursuit is on your agenda, rest assured that justice will prevail. Have faith that the best outcome is within your reach, as this will make it easier to attract the help you’ll need to successfully reach your final destination. Self-promotion is well starred for you now, so if you have a service or product that needs exposure, put yourself out there, and you’ll blossom like a sunflower.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your ability to let go of what you no longer need will release you from an unconscious fear and free you to pave a new direction. Someone close to you will likely give you a new awareness about a lingering burden or responsibility- so if you feel yourself resisting, ironically, it will likely be a good sign. Now is also a wonderful time to examine your relationship with money, as this will likely lead you to psychological breakthrough that will release a chain reaction of positive change and personal development.

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The spotlight will shine on your most important relationship as the Sun shines in your complementary sign of Leo. This doesn’t mean you won’t get your fair share of attention, on the contrary. Your best friend, sweetheart, father, or loyal confidant will likely give you a push when you most need it, which will likely lead you exactly where you need to be headed. This is a time to pay attention to the advice you receive, for it will likely contain a beautiful kernel of wisdom that will help you become a better partner.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Give a helping hand whenever you get the opportunity Pisces, and in turn you’ll likely breathe life into an untapped talent or skill. Listen carefully to a complement you receive from your co-worker, assistant, or someone who offers a specialized service to you, as he or she will likely hit the mark. The Sun’s journey through Leo will encourage you to simplify your life and find a way to do good in the world. In order to do this effectively however, you’ll likely need to give your well-being extra attention. Consider a personal trainer or nutritionist to help you get on the right track, as expert assistance will help your reach your personal best.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer- A New Emotional Journey

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

A New Emotional Journey

Solar Eclipse in Cancer July 12, 2018

Follow the gleam. Alferd Lord Tennyson

 

July’s solar eclipse in Cancer takes place on July 12, 10:48 p.m. EST, and will usher in new opportunities, changes, and fresh starts that will set the stage for 2019. Solar eclipses are all about new life chapters and will open a window of opportunity for you to leave behind what’s not working and start with a clean slate.

This particular eclipse is a Partial Eclipse, and although on the one hand is fairly common, will have special significance because of its direct opposition to Pluto, the farthest (yet arguably most potent) planet from the earth. In mythology Pluto is God of the Underworld, a tyrant who has the power to entrap and seduce to ensure he gets his way, at all costs. Those who have Pluto predominate in their chart often carry a ruthless, power driven edge that unleashes their deepest fears and desires, for better or worse.

Now in Capricorn, an earth sign that symbolizes structure, resilience, and material achievement, Pluto’s influence will encourage you to find the deepest cracks of your life so they can be permanently sealed. If you have Cancer or Capricorn strong in your chart, you will feel the effect of this eclipse most strongly, although all signs will experience a noticeable shift in a particular area of life.

 

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

A relocation, estate, or family concern will require you to keep your emotions in check and take on a higher leadership role. If something in your personal life is keeping you off balance, squarely address it, and new energy will open for you to strive for a professional milestone.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Justice will shine through with a legal settlement, sibling, global pursuit, or negotiation, but you’ll need to hold on to your moral compass and trust that you have the strength to do the right thing. Know your rights, but also have respect for policies in place, and you’ll earn new found respect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Trust that your money will work for you once you decide on who or what entity to partner with. Have a strong hold on what belongs to you, yet the wisdom to let go of what you longer need, and you’ll create a new opportunity for long term wealth.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Fundamental changes you’ve almost given up on will start to give way, but you’ll need to have the courage to change your perspective and trust that what comes your way is absolutely meant for you. Discern your instinct from your ego, and your humility will bless you with unprecedented power.

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Listen to your body, as this will help you create balance where you most need it. A new way of life that honors your inner self will ironically increase your productivity and ultimately make you a force of nature. First however, you’ll need to succumb to the fragility of your human nature.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Virgo isn’t much for crowds, but this solar eclipse will encourage you to spread your wings and break free from your own inhibition. Take the lead, extend an invitation, throw a party, let others know how much you want to give, and slowly but surely, your creative spirit will blossom.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Give all yourself when helping others, and although at times you may feel unseen, your efforts will yield long lasting results that will awaken your life purpose and lay the foundation for your legacy. Know in your heart that you already have within you what you want to be; the rest is divine timing.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Dare yourself to think bigger than you ever have, and you’ll find a nugget of truth that will set the Jeanie out of the bottle. Test your logic against your faith, Scorpio, and in that space you’ll discover a secret wish that belongs only to you. In this wish lies the spark of your highest spiritual quest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Now is the time to face your private fears about not having or being enough so you can embark on new terrain. Dive deep into the waters of vulnerability, and even if you cannot swim, trust that you will be rescued. Your talent is like gold; respect its value and prosperity will follow you, in devotion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Unpeel the layers of your closest relationship, and you’ll likely realize you and your partner are more deeply entwined than you could ever imagine. Accept any insecurity you may feel as a gift, and you’ll create a healing space of fertile soil which can give way to eternal roots for your deepest union.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A new feeling of vitality, focus, and innocence is possible for you, but you’ll need to face your demons before you see the light of where you’re truly headed. What seems like a detour will likely turn out to be a blessing in disguise, and the stronger your self-knowledge, the faster you’ll find the right path.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Invite love into your heart Pisces, as this will give you the power to change your future for the better, and steer your ship against the fiercest winds. Your child, sweetheart, or creative passion holds the key to an expanded vision for your life. Honor this fact, and you’ll see a whole new world that’s held in place by your biggest dream.

The universe is made up of stories, not atoms.  Muriel Rukeyser

The Sun’s journey through the constellation of Aquarius will last until Sunday, February 18. As the zodiac’s third air sign, Aquarius reflects the mature intellectual who thrives off objectivity. Aquarius is also infamous for being the best friend who forever remains loyal. While the Sun shines in Aquarius, you’ll have an opportunity to show up for a friend, become more active in your community, and create emotional distance from an ongoing circumstance that requires you to stretch your personality. This will help you gain wisdom as you strive to do bigger and better things, as Aquarius is also the sign of higher vision and new possibilities.

Capricorn Dancer’s Moira Shearer’s Birthday~ January 17, 1926

The Red Shoes, 1948

Moira Shearer, Michael Powell’s The Red Shoes

Moira Shearer

Capricorn Sun, Pisces Moon, Leo Ascendant

 

Boris Lermontov: Why do you want to dance? Victoria Page: Why do you want to live?  Boris Lermontov : Well I don’t know exactly why, er, but I must.

Victoria Page: That’s my answer too.  
                                              
                                                         Dialogue from The Red Shoes 

 

 

Moira Shearer is most famous for her starring role in the classic dance film, The Red Shoes, directed by  Hollywood icon Michael Powell. Born on January 17, 1926, Ms. Shearer is a Capricorn. As the zodiac’s 10th sign, Capricorn is the zenith of the zodiac, and thrives on ambition. Saturn, the planet of realism, is Capricorn’s ruler. Thus, even though Capricorn has high hopes, she (or he) is not afraid to work hard-because it builds character, Capricorn’s most notable virtue.

With her moon in Pisces, the zodiac’s most imaginative sign, Ms. Shearer was also a dreamer who was known for her sensitivity. Her Leo ascendant made her a natural performer who adored the spotlight. The sign on the ascendant, (or rising sign), reflects ones public image, physical appearance,  and demeanor. Her infamous red hair and dramatic eyes gave her a lioness quality that is quintessentially Leo.
