July 22nd,  2014

Dear Friends,

This New Moon was worth waiting on. The New Moon in Leo. The fifth sign of the Zodiac brings the time to set your intentions for everything that you can create in your heart of hearts.  Each New Moon is like a chapter in a book. This is the 8th New Moon of the year. The year began on January 1st with a New Moon in Capricorn joined with Pluto opposing Jupiter in Cancer and square to Uranus in Aries and Mars in Libra. What a beginning to this year which we will call the book of 2014. After six months of a roller coaster ride that put us through experiences. Some were welcome and some may have been painful. On this New Moon we can now do the things to expand, follow our hearts and be creative.  It is time to be happy and move on. THE NEW MOON LAW OF ABUNDANCE is on JULY 26, 2014 6:42 PM EDT at  03DEGREES LEO 52 MINUTES. It is time to set your intentions for what you want to create, love, and enjoy.

Leo is the sign of integrity, recognition, romance, affection, creativity, and play. When this sign is emphasized, we show kindness and generosity to others. We fall in love and put our heart into whatever we are doing. Time for ambition, independence, and leadership. This sign can be known for its overly dramatic behavior. This is the most dramatic of all the twelve signs. The ego development of Leo is powerful. It can be used to overpower others in an attempt to prove your importance; or, it can be directed toward achieving a purposeful goal. Where Leo is in your chart is where you have the power to create, to make things happen by using your will. Leo is a fixed, determined, fire, goal-oriented sign; all the ingredients needed for success.

This New Moon is taking place in the Virgo dwad of Leo. Taking care of endless details and routine jobs. The sign of humble service and patience. The never-ending maintenance of life, spotting flaws, and correcting mistakes. The experiences attracted in the Virgo house will make you aware of what needs your attention. It is time to have a healthy routine.

The rulers of this New Moon are the Sun because it rules the sign Leo and Mercury because it rules Virgo the dwad of Leo. Once a year, when the New Moon is in Leo, we focus our intentions on children, creativity, fun, romance and the heart. Where Leo is in your chart is where you need to feel special. This New Moon is in Leo, and the Sun rules Leo, and it is in Leo. The heart is warm, and the creative juices are flowing.  Jupiter moved into Leo about 10 days ago and this New Moon is happy to introduce what we can expect from Jupiter. Jupiter will be in Leo for a year. Jupiter is the Guru of the Zodiac. Jupiter brings expansion and understanding. This will all take place in the Leo house in our charts. That is where we are supposed to feel special anyway.

Mercury is the co-ruler of this lunation and it is in Cancer. Our thinking is laced with emotion and feeling. Our hearts are open and we are all poets communicating what we really feel. Venus is in Cancer exactly opposite Pluto. There is nothing halfway with Pluto. What is Venus going to express. Must be touching us on a deep level! Maybe Pluto is showing us what is necessary to let go of in order to follow our hearts. Venus and Mercury in Cancer are favorable to Saturn in Scorpio helping this flow of emotional energy to be expressed. Lots of drama!

Mars is in Scorpio assuming a powerful position square to the New Moon. This challenges us to be considerate. Everyone is sensitive. At the time of this New Moon, Jupiter is in Leo where it will be for a year. This New Moon in Leo is introducing the fact that Jupiter will be in this sign. Also on this day Mars finally leaves Libra after almost 8 months and moves into Scorpio just in time for this New Moon. Mars is much happier in Scorpio and will give us the reins to move forward. We have learned what we needed to learn over the last 8 months or even more and now we will have the opportunity to make choices.


This is a symbol of self-assertion at a point of effective impact on the world, dramatized here on the side of an established and everyday reality. Formality becomes a magical ordering of the automatisms of lesser things, enlisting them in an enduring service to each individual's more outstanding talents. His achievements become evident in the trophies by which he makes his consistent contribution of the real essence of himself to his fellows. The keyword is MORALE.  When positive, the degree is exceptional capacity for winning and holding the esteem of men, and when negative, dependence on applause and a playing to the gallery to get it.

Astrology is an ancient and sacred language. It is the study of planetary cycles and their effects on human behavior. Understanding the daily movement of this energy helps you to be on time in your life with the right attitude.

The earth turning on its axis gives us night and day. The Moon orbiting the earth in 29.6 days gives our monthly cycles. The Earth orbits the Sun in a year and gives us Seasons. Astrology is the study of seasonal changes. Everything moves with this energy. Everything runs its course.

When you look at a model of the Universe Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all orbiting the Sun. They all have seasons. This creates all the energy that is moving that collectively effects what we are experiencing.
There's a metaphysical principle dealing with the relationship of the microcosm and macrocosm that says, "As above, so below. As within, so without." What is going on in the sky at any given time is telling the story of what is going on below at that moment. The information that Astrology provides helps us understand what is going on. It helps us know what time it is. Is it time to plant? Is it time to reap? There is a time a place for everything.

A soul comes into life at exactly the moment in time when the planetary conditions are perfect for what that soul needs to experience. The map of the sky at the exact moment that you took your first breath tells your story. Do you know yours?

Every New Moon, Full Moon and Planetary alignment is telling us day after day the energy we are dealing with. My intention is to describe these energies to help you have a smoother flow with your daily life.

Blessings, Brenda
