My Sign Says

Lunar Leo Wants Us to Cut Loose This Weekend

The moon is moving into Leo today and its timing could not be any more perfect. As we slept, the moon in Cancer formed a rather maudlin opposition with Pluto in Capricorn. This placement inhibits our ability to express our emotions in healthy ways. But lucky for us, the moon moves over into Leo around noon, bringing some much-needed life to the party. Thank you Leo for saving our weekend!

The Moon Is Opposite Pluto at 1:24 AM

In the wee hours of the morning, the moon in sweet emotional Cancer leans into her more protective and secretive side as she moves in opposition to Pluto in standoffish Capricorn. This placement can bring about abrupt and complex feelings of lack and inadequacy, and cause us to turn inward and try to bottle up our emotions, unable to express what’s going on.

The moon governs our emotions and when it resides in Cancer, we can be incredibly sensitive. And in this transit, our negative emotions can rule our life. Meanwhile, Pluto is controlling our primal energy. We manifest our Pluto energy when we create and destroy. When Pluto is in Capricorn, we can indulge in certain things that can lead to our own self destruction.

When this water sign opposes an earth sign, we can feel stuck in the mud. It can also bring on feelings of wanting to hide or numb our feelings away. This placement can stir up relationship drama. Try to stay aware of these inclinations, and find a way to express yourself that’s uplifting and productive.

The Moon Moves into Leo at 11:53 AM

As we get ready for lunch, the moon moves into the fiery sign of Leo overnight, bringing about a burst of creative energy and a desire to get out there (as much as anyone can get “out there” right now) and strut your stuff. The mood is all about pleasure and enjoyment, and forces us to come out of those comfy, if fearful, Cancerian shells.

At this time, inspiration takes hold of us. We may want to express ourselves in as many artistic ways that we can. Our theatrical talents are flourishing and we have the desire to perform in front of others. Don’t hold back! All the world is your stage! Now go forth and demand your spotlight.
