I’ve been posting primarily on Facebook for a while now. I know that not everyone likes FB or uses it, so I’ll be keeping the blog up to date by also posting them here. Those of you who prefer to get the latest posts in email won’t miss out on things that have only been going to FB. If you only follow me on Twitter, you’ll stay up to date with my posts since I don’t post there much anymore.
The Sun enters Leo July 22nd and will stay through August 22nd. Notable events during Leo are the Full Moon in Aquarius on August 3rd, astrological Lammas on the 7th, and the New Moon in Leo on August 18th. Astrological Lammas is when the Sun reaches 15 degrees of Leo, half-way between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox. Lammas is usually celebrated toward the beginning of August. This year the celebration is on August 1st.
Moon in Virgo: July 22, 7:41 pm – July 24, 9:54 pm
Overall, the Moon has a nice transit through Virgo as we kick off Leo season. Leo and Virgo aren’t the best pair. Signs next to each other don’t have much in common and need to work a little harder. Leo’s sense of self can be undermined by Virgo’s lack of self-assurance. Oh, Virgo knows they’re capable, they just might not feel it, especially with all that Leo bravado carrying on.
Fortunately, all the excellent aspects for the Virgo Moon are very assuring. There’s only one little glitch and that’s with Neptune–sort of a full moon feel to it. It passes quickly and is lost in Leo’s glow.
