New Moon in Leo
Friday August 14th 10:55 AM EST

This Leo Moon cycle can be the beginning of a time when individuals look for the realism and practicality associated with their recently expanded self esteem. In some of these cases the recently expanded self esteem may have been a bubble complete with burst. However the reality of understanding one's self admiration and making it work for them in a positive nice harmonious way will be in their ability to find a real world foundation in which self confidence is secure. The act of proving oneself can trigger bold actions, an individual will go after the recognition they feel they are wanting. Also there will be those who are less needy in terms of recognition who will instead simple express their confidence in their own unique way and in some of these cases they will prove to be an inspiration to others. Inspiration as the by-product of one's commitment to task and the demonstration of integrity will also be increasing or will continue to increase. The added need to map our reasonable realistic methods for sticking to commitments will become more the norm. This increase in seeking realism will have the interesting affect of identifying what will be seen as frivolous delusional ideas and plans of self or others. Interestingly all ideas can be considered delusional from the aspect or awareness that all is energy so this is a matter of understanding why we need certain things to be real as opposed to what is real.

The Sun and Moon in Leo at the new Moon will form a trine with Uranus in Aries. The potential for aggressive acts in public settings continues for now. Uranus as a player tells us things can happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Mars becomes significant once again as Mars is the planetary ruler to Aries. Mars will be in Leo adding more potential to aggressive acts, this time motivated by a personal confidence. Although these alignments can be concerning in terms of aggressive acts by individuals blinded by their recent increase in self importance and the need to prove such it can also indicate the release of complacency and courageous actions of self responsible individuals. Difficult and violent action can result when the "who's who" beliefs and ideals are distorted and prioritized beyond reasonable value. As such we may see as the result of this courageous fire energy a dismantling of some people who have gotten a pass in the past because they were assumed and considered important by a degree and reason now seen as inappropriate. Individuals who have been historically influenced by these "who's who" beliefs will have their own version of dynamic challenges which again can include aggressive reactions and actions. On a softer note many will be able to bust these who's important and who's not paradigms without the need to panic and react in denial. Venus in Leo at the new Moon being retrograde signals for some the ending and thus beginning of an eight year cycle. Some may terminate a partnership a romantic situation or some may begin one during this Moon cycle. This would include partnerships connected by thinking and sharing beliefs which in some way elevate importance as in someone is admired because they are assumed to be important and superior in someway. It can also denote a romantic relationship sealed by respecting the admirable qualities in each other in a balanced and appreciated way absent of denial projections and judgment. Since the awareness may already have evolved there would be no need to end such a relationship, at not in relation to this eight year cycle. With all this Leo energy moving right now the individual can become an inspiration to others simply as the by-product of acting on their joy, and by maintaining their integrity and by being responsible for the experiences they draw to themselves. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is also playing into this Uranus trine as Chiron will be quincunx the new Moon and semi-sextile Uranus at the new Moon.

Chiron will be quincunx the new Moon and semi-sextile Uranus at the new Moon. Chiron retrograde in Pisces indicates a healing of one's compassion and leads us all to accepting the boundless connection we share from human to human as well as to all life. We see this healing assisting many, a realizing that their humanity as a feeling supersedes their religious view. In fact religious conflicts are stirred as this, the metaphoric bar, rises and many world citizens begin to value their personal compassion over religious doctrine. As a backlash to this there are exaggerations related to religious beliefs and cultural differences allowing the world to see and resolve these issues. Neptune ruler to Pisces is also in Pisces right now amplifying the significance of how Pisces removes boarders. The role this plays into, this rise in Leo fire energy, is the role of imagination. This is about the fantastic and the delusional, the real and the make believe. When we know or believe that all is energy then it is all fantasy, yet realistically the reality that we are physical beings is a fantasy that has a certain degree of significance. On the grander scheme of things we may be beings who are experiencing a a human physical experience and that this too is a fantasy or delusion however we do have a commitment to being physical humans and so this is one fantasy that is a assumed more real or important than other fantasies. This is strongly supported by Virgo energy which has recently become more significant with the Jupiter Virgo ingress on August 11th 2015. In November the Moon's north node will begin a Virgo transit as well, again increasing influence from Virgo. So how does the Chiron quincunx to Leo new Moon affect this Moon cycle? Leo energy as depicted by independent self admiration feeds on or is qualified by the individual through some fantastic version of reality, in other words Leo self admiration feeds on fantasy. Or someone who is really excited by who they are likely has some fantasy which services this self admiration. The role Chiron plays is the coming to terms with the fact that one's self excitement is tied into their fantasy. This occurs as their particular fantasy and correlating self esteem is either elevated or busted. If their fantasy is being altered their self esteem is also altered. Ultimately Chiron the healer will create an acceptance of one fantasy to another and have the resultant affect of individuals becoming more acceptable from one to another even though their interest vastly differ. Their social identities evolve. Ideally individuals will recognize their fantasy, or their particular version of reality however you want to see it, as tied together and that this awareness will free them from the debilitating need to require external validation in order to like themselves.

Many have become perhaps use to dealing with lots of fire energy recently with Uranus in Aries spanning May 2010 to May 2018 and the Moon's south node in Aries February 18th 2014 to November 12 2015. And now the new Moon is in Leo as well as both Mars and Venus. However another interesting indicator affecting fire energy during this new Moon phase is a trine between Pallas Athena in Sagittarius and Vesta in Aries. This new or added influence will correlate with individuals feeling the necessity to be active and bold, to be independent and to be independent and active in a very intelligent way. The ability for example to multi-task as the job of simply getting things done becomes like a calling. Ways to coordinate efforts will be an active focus. For some they will become impeccable personal energy managers managing their own action energy and thus moving forward with priorities which require their active involvement. The previous dates given which include Uranus in Aries and Moon's south node in Aries are sustained and extended times where as this Pallas Athena Vesta trine is specific to this Moon cycle and new Moon phase. It can also be noted as the Moon's south node passes from Aries to Pisces this November there will be a decrease in aggression and violence and this will again decrease further once Uranus makes the Taurus ingress in 2018, although aways off it is important for some individuals to realize that the amount of violence occurring worldwide will begin to subside and is not a permanent thing. In the meantime we can make advantage of the Pallas Athena Vesta trine and value our own fire energy and make strides in say our business or whatever is our concern. Especially affective will be the ability to create cooperative situations while expediting situation which require action.


With this Moon cycle beginning in Leo the focus will be on the joy of self expression. The current report, including the fourteen period cycle below, is scripted from the perspective of experiencing one's own impulse to interact with life as an expression of one's self admiration. Self acceptance and self admiration become the directors of one's involvement in life. An evolution of self awareness occurs as influences and beliefs which support or block one's inspiration from shinning out into their world become consciously known. Those born under the Sun sign Leo have a natural propensity to express a powerful self confidence. They naturally resonate with the freedom to be themselves. Not to exclude others as we all have Leo energy somewhere in our personal astrology charts, the following is a simplified list intended to indicate where each Sun sign will enjoy the expressions of self confidence. There are many accents in each personal astrology chart where an individual's energy will be characterized by an apparent alternate Sun sign, as in being their Moon sign. In these cases there may be personal alignments which support a deviation of one's will from their highest order. The intention here is to clarify the nature of how self love is extended out into a shared world when impulses are followed in a dynamic yet effortless manner. These can also serve as healthy intentions.

    I connect with self admiration ...
  • Cancer: when I embrace my local environment and become sensually involved in life.
  • Gemini: when I exchange and communicate ideas with others while enjoying spontaneous interaction.
  • Taurus: when I trust and examine my feelings and allow these feelings to lead me to practical clarity and insight.
  • Aries: by trusting my enthusiasm and allowing my inspiration to move into dynamic expression.
  • Pisces: by being responsible and practical, by achieving my goals.
  • Aquarius: when I am involved with healthy fulfilling partnerships where ideas are communicated and shared with exciting interest.
  • Capricorn: by trusting my partnerships and becoming involved in mutually beneficial agendas.
  • Sagittarius: by accepting the adventures which my impulsive self leads me to.
  • Scorpio: whenever I allow my commitment to the public through my career.
  • Libra: when I allow myself to enjoy social freedom.
  • Virgo: by accepting my calling to be practical prudent and realistic within a universal world of compassion and shared interaction.


The Birthdays section is a list of birthdays which are being strongly affected by current astrological alignments. If a birthday is not listed here it doesn't mean that a person is not experiencing significant astrological influences which are dynamically paralleling life changes. After all we are experiencing tremendous Earth changes now, nobody is excluded. The people who do have these birth dates are being strongly influenced now and are likely experiencing life altering dynamics. In some cases great opportunities are occurring and in others great challenges are brought forward. Since all challenges can be re-framed as opportunities all those who have these birthdays are experiencing great live changing opportunities. If a birthday is just a day or so previous to the listed date then the person has recently experienced a major change. Due to the retrograde nature of transiting planets the change is not necessarily complete, it may return. If a birthday follows a date listed the person will soon experience a major change. Again due to the retrograde nature of transiting planets the person may have already begun a major change which seems to have backed off, and will most definitely return.

01 Friday August 14th 10:55 AM EST - new Moon in Leo
The new Moon phase is a particularly good time to set intentions and to envision one's experiences. With the new Moon in Leo a good feeling about one's self is an appropriate guideline and theme when choosing intentions. There has been ample time for the individual to get a handle on their preferred self identity and vision for themselves as indicated by Jupiter's one year transit through Leo. Mars and Venus are also in Leo during the new Moon indicating bold actions qualified by self confidence and an acceptance of admirable qualities in self and others. In partnership interests an ability to see respect and acknowledge notable admirable qualities in another would be viable. Juno is in Virgo during the new Moon and will correlate with some individuals getting their analytical skills, their logic, brushed off as one might groom themselves before a big date. And being analytical is not just for attracting a partner or seeking appreciation from another, an ability to see beyond one's typical reasoning will begin to occur as indicated by Jupiter now in Virgo. Mercury will also be Virgo at the new Moon indicating a sharpness to the mind, we may see those who want exactness in their thinking as well as in their communications. Virgo energy will continue to rise over the next year or so as indicated by the Moon's north node transiting into Virgo which will occur this coming November. For now the Sun will begin it's regular Virgo transit on August 23rd, directing focus to precision in reasoning and communication. Intentions regarding heath and wellness, being clear about what is one's responsibility and what is not, and being able to see and correct frivolous investments of one's energy by being able to prioritize what one deems practical and realistic, all good areas to focus intentions.

02 Saturday August 15th - Moon enters Virgo 3:47 AM
This is the first Moon Virgo ingress since Jupiter's Virgo ingress and so the period begins with a Moon Jupiter conjunction. The Sun will conjunct retrograde Venus in Leo and Mercury in Virgo and will trine Pluto in Capricorn. Qualifying personal identity in order to find peace within one's self can occur for some. An inclination to feel comfortable with courageous outward demonstration of one's confidence is supported. A changing landscape affecting public and social systems and the correlating physical infrastructure may be linked to how one makes sense of their confidence. An adjustment may be taking place in terms of what is considered good character as this change may seem to be prompted by the current community needs. A sense that one is able to see more deeply into the real practical world supported by an ability to see how pieces fit together in terms of an evolving and expanding common sense may be supported by a good opinion of oneself. The need to solve or reason something out requires the mind to stretch and reach into places with a critical sense of what is real. This may involve health. The science of health may be charging right now and it seems as if new data and developments are occurring yet it is just as likely that some past blockages are being removed on a managing level and this apparent new and helpful development is finally allowed to flow. Those who are quite use to expressing themselves confidently may seem bolder than ever, their actions in many cases being more accepted. This may be the beginning of a one year period where many individuals get into health wellness and healing in a big way and make effective discoveries which assist them and others they care for.

03 Monday August 17th - Moon enters Libra 4:24 PM
Recent acts of courage may be questioned as feelings about a partnership require clarity. The concern that a partnership opportunity is interfering with one's ability to handle things independently can occur and occupy one's emotional experience. Ideally the individual will experience some form of self admiration and be able to see their partnership experience as an echo or mirror of this personal appreciation. This can also include something which causes the individual to feel uneasy or uncomfortable in their relationship. Again the idea is to evolve this experience by realizing that the individual is being shown something in their partner which they have not been unable to accept in themselves. There is a huge opportunity to make big changes in one's partnership experiences simple by being able to admit and accept the quality of relationship. Conversation as well as ideas can easily be motivated by the need to be appreciated by a partner. Relationship situations may be analyzed more than usual with a critical review as to what will or wouldn't work. As the use of logic seems a superior method to engage when evaluating a relationship the intuitive and emotional clues may be missed. In showing another that one has a competent logical finesse they may be attempting to generate interest, as in believing one has good partnership potential because they are known to be smart and clever.

04 Thursday August 20th - Moon enters Scorpio 5:25 AM
The Sun will square Saturn during this Moon Scorpio transit. A need to be fair and honest may be called upon especially where some valuable resources are shared. Some secrets may not survive. An opportunity to build solid relationships on trust and transparency is also available again involving mutually owned resources. The quality of one's integrity may be either their ticket to success or their undoing. A need to be clear about feelings associated with one's own ideas and beliefs and those feelings of another's requires mutual acceptance. A merging is possible where separate ideas in terms of rational thinking are harmonized within the feelings of both individuals. What can trigger the concern may have to do with the questioning of talent and expertise. Ultimately the individual will explore their potential ability to be very good at something and begin to see how they can improve or develop their talent. This can also cause some to look more deeply into some area of interest. A rude awakening can for example trigger the concern for improvement as a notion about the quality of one's current ability may be tested. Saturn's two year transit through Scorpio is about to end, there may have been a calling out of inappropriate control over the sovereignty of another or perhaps a secret issue which has been opened up during this time. As Saturn takes these final moments some long awaited outcome involving control may at last be released and in some way resolved.

05 Saturday August 22nd - Moon enters Sagittarius 4:42 PM
Sun ingress Virgo Wednesday August 23rd 6:38 AM
Clashes between increased self confidence and long time control over a situation concerning personal values may have occurred for some recently. This can also set up an experience where an individual demonstrates a finely tuned ability to be self superior while accepting a long time boundary. The release or resolution of this boundary offers a fresh new feeling of self respect. A need to be critical in order to steer one's public reputation may also be occurring, this can be applied to one's professional situation or a dynamic related to employment. As many enjoy the sense of feeling really good about themselves and their potential they will ride the magnificent light of Jupiter which has recently made a Virgo ingress. By stretching one's reasoning and exploring potentials of what is assumed to be the real world, viable opportunities and new visions of oneself can be inspiring. For some it may feel like pressure to do better and for others it may feel like they are actively pursuing opportunity. What is going on with the individual can affect how they socialize where the tone of their conversation is altered and affected by a changing identity. This can show it self by how one entertains opinions of others. Ideally the individual will enjoy thinking highly of themselves as they are aware they are the designer of their world and they alone are responsible for the challenges they have created and currently face.

06 Tuesday August 25th - Moon enters Capricorn 12:23 AM
The need to accept some public change or social revolution may color this Moon transit. This is a good time to establish clear progress in the servicing of one's known responsibilities. The need to be critical is supported while the need to be realistic is also supported. Discipline is present in the form of minding the depth and degree to which one's duties tie into concerns of others especially where mutually owned property is concerned. A caution not to become overly enamored by one's brilliant analytic idea is noted as well. Although an increase in logical thinking is indicated and will be useful the need to keep it real and connected to actual responsibilities is also noted. Some may start a big deal plan or project which others may see as unrealistic. If so this will carry on for a few weeks and then be challenged to find support from others. Knowing this now can alert the individual to look for that interest and support instead of investing energy which is likely not returned. A continued interest in loving the admirable qualities in others and in oneself is supported by bold action which imply this admiration is real. The focus on some ongoing discipline or negotiation over some shared interest, something important to the individuals involved, carries on and is likely affected by an increased assertive self confidence. Ideas may be convincing to the one who is presenting them yet alternative views can also be present. Either way the final days of a multi year dynamic issue are here, resolution of some sort near.

07 Thursday August 27th - Moon enters Aquarius 4:05 AM
Mercury ingress Libra Thursday August 27th 11:46 AM
A rationalization which can make sense of one's newly acquired social identity is needed such that the identity fits in with one's social reality. Feelings about freedom and being allowed to be who one wants to be, especially in terms of harmonizing with one's public and community experiences, becomes more noticeable to the individual. Rationalizations which qualify partnerships may quickly become more important. What was considered strange in a partnership may suddenly seem more normal and be acceptable and also the complete opposite may be experienced as well where something considered acceptable is suddenly weird and bizarre. An aggressive move by an individual can be the result of simply seeking attention of another they feel is a potential partner or is directed toward one who is currently a partner yet they feel he or she needs a reminder. When Mercury makes the Libra ingress, noon on the 27th, an opportunity for improved relationship experiences begins. A willingness to let go of one's solo strategies and the correlating inner thought processes replaced by real dialogue, fresh experiences involving others make for a good time with promising developments. Too much defence on one's superior character can stall the individual from having these wonderful relationship experiences, likely caused again by attempting to get an assumed identity qualified via social experiences.

08 Saturday August 29th - Moon enters Pisces 4:52 AM
Full Moon Saturday August 29th 2:36 PM
Big self confidence makes a powerful assertion which is directly related to big public changes. Influences related to misunderstandings or unacceptable rationalizations feed the commitment and inspiration of those who are high on asserting their beliefs. Shared rationalizations make the difference for some as they are seeing themselves strong while partnered and supported. A need to deal with ideas, either ones own or those of others, are being identified. Their importance considered and as appropriate their priority reduced. Ideally the individual will see the bigger picture and accept the compassion behind the idea even if the idea itself is not tailored to fit with current circumstances. Also it is beneficial and superior for the individual to acknowledge compassion as not bounded by application and as such is able to see beyond single applications. This allows people to be good with each other, their acknowledgement and consideration of each other allows compassion to be their common denominator. This concept is epitomized for example in the understanding that music is a universal language. Health concerns or issues in the health industry may be dynamic right now, changes and revolutions occurring. One's personal health issues may parallel these public dynamics. For any health issue which is occurring during this Moon in Pisces transit the individual is wise to pay attention to involvements which they subject themselves to which are not absolutely necessary. The value of boundaries may make a valuable comeback. If an individual is having a health issue now they may be gripping onto an identity which is not congruent within their overall beliefs.

09 Monday August 31st - Moon enters Aries 4:34 AM
Tuesday September 1st Venus retrograde and Mars conjunct in Leo
It may be difficult for some to avoid their aggressive impulsive self, not that one would want to stand in the way of spontaneous action however the foundation from which an individuals actions are reasoned can be to others unexpected. Ideally during this Moon transit the individual will discover something valuable about their impulsive self. This would typically occur within new surroundings. The idea that our aggression or courageous self is solely accessed for our survival is reduced and room is made to see impulsiveness as a direct access vehicle to the intuitive or innate knowing. Spontaneous words or artistic expression, spontaneous acts in sports, spontaneous decisions which indicate an integrated self awareness are all refreshing expressions and are simply a matter of being a "regular normal human". It is fragmented self identity and people thinking or assuming they are their mind that can cause such fragmentation as the mind is more directly in accord with ones ego. And this is not ego bashing in anyway as the ego here is known as our lock on reality. Mars and retrograde Venus are conjunct in Leo during this transit, there is a union going on which individuals can merge with in a personal way. The feeling of accepting and expressing ones self love is high. Also quite significant now is the Sun moving into opposition with Neptune in Pisces. This alignment can be considered a forerunner to astro alignments expected in the next couple of years. Here we have individuals being challenged to increase discernment as to what is relevant and what is distraction. Also we want to mind our bodies opinion as our body is the great discerner showing us what truly matters.

10 Wednesday September 2nd - Moon enters Taurus 5:03 AM
Making practical realistic sense of one's recent ambitions becomes more prevalent as earth signs become more influential. The foundation for one's identity as in being an expert in some field or just seeing self as notable for some talent or character is an important aspect of one's promising vision. Making things real means going beyond the mind and the ego and finding a place of value where the sense of realism is supported in a physical way. For some it could be applying for a job or being promoted. Testing the waters as to the realism of one's self ideal can occur. The individual may have shifted their focus to landing and grounding their vision. For some an eight year romance, or an approximate time frame, may be closing or beginning. Some version of romantic experiences may have been desired or manifested eight years ago yet now is seen as an impractical and unrealistic arrangement. The proud individual is figuring out how to be the self they like and at the same time make it work in their real world. This may require letting go of some experience or relations as they are deemed frivolous or have in some way lost their appeal and value. For work and job related dynamics a need to feel security in an increasingly realistic way may be more important now, a need to integrate one's recently increased self esteem with their work becomes important to them.

11 Wednesday September 4th - Moon enters Gemini 7:49 AM
Venus direct Sunday September 6th 4:30 AM
An opportunity to use one's superior critical thinking allows them to take advantage of a changing public system. As this energy increses internal dialogue may increase. Self confidence may be tested socially, an individual can freely and spontaneously share their ideas and interests with peers and friends without consideration of some social identity. Self doubt on the other hand can occur as one feels threatened by what another says, or makes assumptions about what another thinks. Ideally the individual will accept such an emotional reaction as an opportunity to clearly see a belief which they are party to or a belief which they have obviously bought into and determine if that belief is contrary to their newly discovered self confidence. Self love can be very powerful and can bloom nicely as long as the individual is not sidelined by endless internal dialogue. If internal dialogue does occur or when it does occur all is not lost as the individual can be the monitor or listener to their own inner broadcast and follow the beliefs which validate the significance of these inner thoughts. An ability or interest in discovering the nature of the emotional landscape which facilitates a particular relationship can also be valuable right now. Understanding what paradigm must be real in order to validate or make a particular relationships functional or real may reveal particular beliefs which the individual can more easily observe. An increasing interest in dissolving and busting what is determined to be unreal realities or interfering beliefs will become in the next few years more common yet here we can see it's early tone.

12 Sunday September 6th - Moon enters Cancer 1:41 PM
Being self motivated, self responsible and sovereign brings with it sensitivities which assist the individual in keeping these things real. In many cases the vulnerabilities which an individual experiences now will assist them in sorting out what is their responsibility and what is an indication that they have crossed the line and become overly involved in the affairs of others. This will be a time where many sort out the analytical details of their plans and ideas. An ability to acknowledge major changes in the shared world where values are sought by all and to go with these changes, as opposed to going to where things were, is extremely useful right now. It's like tracking a moving target and can be challenging yet the ability to be ultra rational and critical is strong right now. Even one's increased sensitivity can assist in accepting and making personal changes which lead to and support bigger practical changes. Saturn will be in the final degrees of Scorpio for this entire Moon cycle however will soon leave Scorpio marking the end of a two year drama where some long time control is finally relinquished. For this we see boundaries which involve secrets including hidden control of resources, doesn't have to be hidden can be openly controlled as well, or sensual control of relationships, typically control of shared values of some sort. These boundaries have been at long last weakened, many destroyed. The public infrastructures which are connected to these boundaries have changed and the artificial nature of power for some has been broken. The sensitivity of some can be very high now as a major social and personal healing may be taking place especially for those who have been for many years traumatized by the apparent control by another. Freedom occurs when the individual is aware that they were never a victim.

13 Tuesday September 8th - Moon enters Leo 10:37 PM
Expressions of self confidence and the admiration of self and others has likely been bigger than usual this Moon cycle. For some this will merely be a continuation of their experiences as indicated by Jupiter's Leo ingress July 17th 2014 completing with a Virgo ingress recently on August 11th. With both Venus and Mars in Leo now a continued focus on individual admiration is indicated. Self confident expression will be however shifting toward rationalization where the qualification of one's self acceptance is considered from a practical and in some cases more critical focus. Projection being what it is, the watchful eye may be on others where a critical analysis or logical reasoning qualifies admirable qualities. An individuals ability to just be themselves in a natural confident way may have been developed or has increased during this Leo Moon cycle. A reiteration of newly discovered or enjoyed recognition of others or of self will likely be experienced now as the Moon returns to Leo. Relationships verses individual efforts has been a dithering point for many in well over a year now and continues. The mind will in some cases be occupied and challenged to accept some big time revolutionary changes currently happening on a grand level yet affect the individual in how they are dealing with their relationships. For many a ripe new version of trust may have developed, this correlating with an acceptance of a partnership experience and the letting go of some previous solo effort.

14 Friday September 11th - Moon enters Virgo 9:57 AM
Again we see bold and aggressive actions coming in this Virgo Moon cycle. This need to demonstrate courage by the individual has been very high for some time and does continue now in this coming Moon cycle yet there is a decrease starting mid to late fall. After this Moon cycle in Virgo and into the fall season there will be a gradual decrease in spontaneous boldness and aggressive actions by the individual. However for now we will see how rationalizing qualifies and supports courageous acts. A shift toward dealing with what is considered real as opposed to things considered frivolous begins. A need to bust or dissolve dynamics which seem to have a decreased significance will occur as one's logic gains the upper hand. The real value of fantasy must be understood in order to reap it's benefits and be able to integrate these benefits into one's advancing awareness, opportunities to do such are coming. An increase in the critical nature of one's logic is one of the things which will gradually relace the need to be bold and spontaneously aggressive. The need to qualify an interest will increase. Partnerships which can speak openly acknowledging the admiration of one to another will most likely work well. Much of the destructive individual actions which have been showing up in the world can be linked to an inability to embrace the fine good qualities of another. This acknowledgement will feel fresh and be a relief for some as they embrace a new way of accepting another.

Next new Moon is in Virgo Sunday September 13th 2:42 AM EST

Soulstar Astrology Appointments

For those interested in personal astrology readings it is important to note that Soulstar Astrology readings are based on the belief that you create your own reality. As such our experiences and most especially our difficulties can be framed as opportunities to evolve toward one's higher plan. As humanity has, in the last several years and continuing now, been going through identity discernment a questioning as to where one is headed and who the self is that is headed there may occur. The understanding of a particular identity will be connected to particular astro alignments and planetary placement. Personal astrology charts show us how things are connected from a vaster perspective. Knowing these connections and perspectives opens the door for more choices. Astrology works well with dates and so consider keeping a record or make a note of some specific date or time frame in which some major dynamic has occurred.

Astrology readings are typically recorded to either CD or tape. If you are interested in setting a date for a session or would like to inquire further feel free to call or check out the web site.
