“Broad paths are open to every endeavor, and a sympathetic recognition is assured to everyone who consecrates his art to the divine services of a conviction of consciousness.” Franz Liszt

It’s that time of the month again, with the Moon stationed in glamorous, “Hollywood Hills” Leo, when we must dutifully ascend the theater stairwell and take our rightful place, center-stage, beside leading man, George Clooney.  It’s, of course, a thankless job, but hey, somebody has to do it! 🙂

Yes, the Moon in “entertainment” Leo paves the way for us to be a “shining star” today in our own real-life dramas. The colorful Leo Moon is naturally upbeat and creative, authoritative, and self-confident, and generally imbues us with more of a desire to “make a big splash” and “receive recognition” for the things that we do.

Too, the Moon’s winning trine to energizer Mars in “pioneering” Aries (1:54 pm EDT) helps to fill us with loads of passion and daring. This aspect is also favorable for sports and exercise.

Later, the Moon’s sextile to “stabilizing” Saturn in partnership Libra may help to anchor our relationships (10:28 pm EDT), and can inspire us to make commitments (Saturn). Saturn governs the “urge for security.”

In The News: Japan’s nuclear safety agency raised the severity level of the crisis at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant today to a 7 – the highest level on an international scale, bringing the crisis on par with the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Astrologically, we still have Mars involved in a tight square to Pluto (this influence was exact late yesterday). Pluto rules radiation and nuclear power. (Also, on the shadow side, Pluto can denote crisis situations and turning points.)

Mars, of course, tends to act as a catalyst for events, especially in an “initiating” sign like Aries which it rules. (The “square” aspect also tends to “force matters.”) Again, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan. Such a tragedy.
