“Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.” Theodore Roosevelt
The Waxing Moon remains in colorful, self-confident Leo today and is forming an opposition to self-assertive Mars around lunchtime (at 12:04 pm). This aspect can provide us with intense emotion and a fighting spirit to achieve our ends. Since Mars is also in community-minded Aquarius, we may feel more motivated to involve ourselves in teamwork and a shared cause at this time. On the shadow side, the Moon-Mars energy is sometimes associated with impulsivity or being more easily irritated so we may need to dial back our responses, a bit, if we wish to, among other things, preserve the peace. On the other hand, Moon-Mars can also be a time when we deliberately choose to clear the air, especially if we have been carrying around pent-up grievances, as this planetary alignment tends to provide us with more courage and directness to speak our truth. On another level, the Moon in Leo can also put us in touch with our personal pride, or how we conduct ourselves with dignity and respect and show the same to others.
“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.” Jane Austen
