No matter what the weather is in your locale today, a day of creative fire energy is in store for you as the moon in Leo puts drama, play and passion up front and center. The Leo moon gets extra drive, will power, intent, and even force through a quincunx aspects it forms with powerful Pluto in success driven Capricorn. This Leo moon is especially strong because it is ripening to full and we are sensing an approaching Mercury retrograde period, where forward momentum on projects could be suspended. The moon also squares Jupiter in Taurus early today, and Mars in Virgo opposes the sun in Pisces. But abundant Jupiter in Taurus is feeding Pluto's power with a supportive trine, so you will be trying every which way to make things happen or get what you want, despite the lunar square to Mars. And the Mars/sun opposition, which is not quite telling you why you can't have what you want - but is still being felt like a wet blanket - gets a good, swift kick around lunch time, when the Leo moon forms a semi-sextile to Mars just as the lunar square to Mars fades away. Neptune is encouraging us to do what we want, even if we have to behave out of character or overturn rules and order. Neptune forms a trine to Saturn in Libra, a supportive sextile to Venus and Jupiter in Taurus, and a semi-sextile aspect to Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries. Venus enters the sign of Taurus today, where it becomes softer, more feminine, sensual, and indulgent. If romantic passion is one of the things the Leo moon is igniting in your life, this evening may heat up and become memorable, as a quincunx develops between the ardent Leo moon and the sensitive, romantic Pisces sun. Affectionate, pleasure loving Venus in sensual Taurus, sextile inspirational Neptune in dreamy, psychic Pisces can make love magical tonight, or any activity that you love, even more delightful. Bruce Springsteen's song, "I'm On Fire" beautifully represents today's energy.
