HELL YEAH ITS LEO SEASON!!!!
We start the week out with our Moon in the cardinal fire sign of Aries and our Sun moving into the fixed sign of Leo. Leo rules the heart chakra, the spine, and is symbolized in the Strength and Sun Tarot cards of the Major Arcana. Leo rules the 5th house in Astrology which is represented in self expression, romance, children, theatrical performance, and other types of performing arts.
Leo needs to feel validated and loved by the world around them and those they care about. Leo tends to be a lot more sensitive and insecure than their confident exterior shows. As a Leo myself, I often feel a deep longing and desire to belong, but my stubborn Will to succeed in my own unique way often creates a lot of separation for me within my life which can make it hard for me to feel like I truly belong anywhere.
During Leo season we may feel a stronger need to succeed and express ourselves. We may seek a lot of validation or praise from others and we may also feel an enhanced energy in our libido.
This week we also have a Last Quarter Moon in Taurus, that will be asking us to evaluate what within our physical world might need letting go. This is a positive time for making some space in your life for some new relationships to our work life, living spaces, and even our own physical bodies.
Tarot Cards for the week: Strength, The Sun, Temperance, The Emperor, The Magician, Page of Wands, Knight of Wands, Queen of Wands, King of Wands, 4 of Wands, 5 of Wands, 6 of Wands, Ace of Wands, 10 of Wands, 8 of Swords, 9 of Swords, 7 of Swords, The Lovers, 2 of Cups, 3 of Cups, Queen of Cups, 4 of Pentacles, 5 of Pentacles 6 of Pentacles

Moon enters Aries 3:02 AM
Sun enters Leo 7:51 PM
With our Sun and Moon in fire signs starting the week out, our need to express and validate ourselves is at an all time high. Leo season has officially begun and we may feel more of a desire to socialize and romanticize the world around us. We could also find ourselves being more focused on our spiritual drive and ambitions. This is a good time for aligning yourself with your hearts purest intention.
Moon in Aries
We may feel a need to assert ourselves today around things that we care about or need in order to feel more aligned with our own sense of self. The Moon in Aries may cause us to be a little more on the hot tempered side. It is wise we try to slow it down and use the momentum of Aries energy to be productive.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Trine Mars in Leo 6:34 AM
Our ability to push our energy forward in the morning hours is enhanced. It might be easier to get up and get going today, and we benefit from being productive in the morning hours.
Moon Trine JupiterRX in Sagittarius 9:14 AM
Our need for expansion in the morning hours is enhanced and we might benefit from changing up our morning routine with something that makes us feel like we are growing and evolving in new and interesting ways.
Moon Square SaturnRX in Capricorn 11:31 AM
Tension is enhanced during this transit around how we feel and what we have to do in the mundane or practical world. We may have something at work go wrong during the hours of this transit, or we may feel irritable and frustrated with some form of authority in our lives. We can think of The Emperor reversed in the Tarot as a good way to define this energy during this transit.
Moon Square PlutoRX in Capricorn 10:20 PM
We may feel tension over what we want vs. what we know we have to change in our lives. There could be some resistance towards that change or just tension around it. Our sense of self within our physical world is going through a transformation process and we benefit with being open to letting parts of our egoic self die.

Moon enters Taurus 2:42 PM
Last Quarter Moon in Taurus 6:18 PM
The Last Quarter Moon in Taurus can be symbolized by the 4, 5 and 6 of Pentacles cards in the Tarot. These cards represent our relationship to financial stability and our relationship to the material world. We may be in a period of evaluating our relationship to money, resources, food/health, or how we give and receive within our personal relationships. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning it is a beneficial placement for the energy of the Moon. People with their Moon in Taurus tend to enjoy nurturing themselves and others through food, gifts, or spending time in nature. If you feel called to change up your routine or relationship to these things, this Moon is asking you to do that. Last Quarter Moons call for us to release and let go of patterns that are not helping us succeed. If you are not taking care of your health, finances, or your relationship to work or your physical space, this is a good time to evaluate what needs changing and how you and integrate healthier habits into your life.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Square Venus in Cancer 6:12 AM
We may feel some emotional tension in the morning and we could be overly sensitive to our environment. Issues from our past with our mothers, or women in our lives could come up and we might find ourselves feeling insecure. This is a good time to move slow and try to nurture yourself in a positive way.
Moon Square Mercury RX in Cancer 7:48 AM
We could have some issues with communication in the morning hours and there is potential for us to take things the wrong way. Try to find a way to ground yourself if you can. It is ok to feel things deeply, but don’t take your feelings out on others.
Mercury RX in Cancer Conjunct Venus in Cancer 5:27 PM
Our need to express how we are feeling in our relationships is enhanced and we also may be working through or processing some deep emotional wounds or feelings from our childhood, past, or past relationships. We may have insights come to us around where emotional patterns first began for us around something that is personal to us. For some this transit may be positive and our need for self care, love and connection with another is enhanced. Do something that nurtures the soul and heart today, take it slow, and ease into some self care during the day if you can. We will feel this energy for a couple days, if you are feeling extra sensitive or emotional this may be why.
Moon Square Sun in Leo 6:18 PM
We may feel insecure about ourselves in the evening hours and seek validation that we are relevant or wanted in the world whether it be socially or professionally. We may compare ourselves to others and ask ourselves if we are good enough or doing enough to warrant success. It is important that we get to the heart of anything that is tugging at us and ask ourselves what our relationship is to our soul purpose rather than the things that feed or stimulate our ego.
Moon in Taurus
With the Moon in Taurus we benefit from connecting to Mother Earth through nature, food, and nurturing our physical bodies. We can think of The Empress card of the Tarot as a way to step into this energy.

We may feel a need for adventure in the morning hours and we benefit from giving ourselves a way to express ourselves that feeds the soul. We may feel overly ambitious or studious and this is a positive day to set intentions and act on them around something we are hoping to grow or expand our knowledge or sense of self in.
Moon Square Mars in Leo 8:12 PM
Tension in the evening is enhanced and we may feel like things we want to push forward are not moving fast enough. We benefit from slowing down and seeing the value in appreciating every step of the journey.

We may feel ambitious around our physical priorities and this is a positive energy to make a plan or “to-do” list around mundane tasks that need to be done.

Moon enters Gemini 11:29 PM
With the Moon in Gemini over the weekend we may feel an urge to be social and chatty. This is also a positive time for us to focus on things that are causing us stress and finding ways to release any mental anxiety or tension. Find ways to get outside of yourself and see things from another point of view. Talking things out with a trusted friend is always a good way to see it from another angle.
Strong Aspects During the Day PDT
Moon Trine PlutoRX in Capricorn 7:57 AM
We may feel like we are ready to let go or make some changes in our physical world in the morning hours. This is a good time for evaluating what changes are taking place in our own lives and how we can move forward through them.
Moon Sextile Mercury RX in Cancer 2:44 PM
This is a positive time for evaluating our feelings and discussing them with another who can support us in a positive way. We benefit from letting ourselves work through our mental and emotional process in new ways and being open to hearing or seeing things from another perspective. We also might have some old seeds getting triggered during this time and this is an opportunity for us to work on healing them.
Moon Sextile Venus in Cancer 9:28 PM
This is a harmonious energy that allows for us to connect with our partners, friends, or loved ones in a beneficial way. I think of the 3 of Cups energy in the Tarot and The Lovers as a good way to define the energy in the evening. Our hearts will long for connection so spending your evening with those you care about is positive.
Moon in Gemini
With the Moon in Gemini we might feel like we are mentally working through a lot of ideas or insights coming into our conscious awareness at a rapid rate. It is sometimes beneficial to go for a hike in nature if we find ourselves overthinking too much about something in our lives. Writing a list of pros and cons is also a positive way of grounding your energy around an issue or issues coming up that are concerning you.
Strong Aspects During the Day PDT
Moon Sextile Sun in Leo 7:16 AM
This is a harmonious energy for our morning hours and we may feel like we want to express ourselves or share ourselves with others on social media more than what is “normal.” Or we may have plans with friends and enjoy being social. This is also a great energy for spending time with your significant other and doing something that feeds each others minds and hearts together.
