The day begins with the Dark Moon void-of-course in Cancer. At 9:18 AM EDT she enters Leo, beginning her final approach to the Sun.
Near midnight, at 11:12 PM, the Leo New Moon occurs, marking the start of a six-month period of growth in creativity. What area of your life is ignited by that creative spark depends on which house in your chart contains Leo. The Sun and the Moon are each still in range of a square to Uranus, which adds an electric touch of the unexpected.
Speaking of your chart — on this creative Leo New Moon I am launching a new newsletter. Each lunar quarter (thus, weekly) beginning today, I’ll send out horoscopes for each sign to subscribers.
I’ve set up the horoscopes by rising sign, so if you know your rising sign (ascendant,) you know what areas of your life (houses) are affected by the transiting planets. If you don’t know your rising sign, go to astro.com for your free birth chart.
So — subscribe now! Each week you’ll receive a more specific forecast than I can offer in the dailies.
In other news, Mercury turns direct at two minutes to midnight. The Trickster planet has been parked at 24˚ Cancer since Saturday and remains there until this Sunday, when he slowly begins to pick up speed. Mercury can still be quite tricksy when he’s this slow, even when direct. By August 8th we’ll be getting back to normal.
