While we are sleeping the Moon enters Aries. Aries, first sign, ruler of the first principle, brings an energy of initiation. Sweet Aries is the ram of fire who explores her terrain by crashing headlong into what stands before her. Learning is a process of trial by error, an openhearted optimistic endeavor. With the week ahead opening up for us with the Moon in Aries, a fresh emotional narrative unfolds, and we feel like we can begin again.

.

And not a moment too soon, after last week’s destabilizing and powerful eclipse activity. We’re now working through the aftershock of realizations, endings, awakenings, and more. If you feel overburdened, know that you are not alone. Make time to comb through what’s coming to you, this is a tender moment of integration for us all.

.

The Moon trines the Sun today, a harmonious aspect that finds emotion and ego supporting one another in our endeavors. Easy flow of communication from the heart is possible today, so long as you hold your gaze steady. Don’t lose focus, your words are important. They can be well received today.

Yesterday was the last day of Cancer season, and we may have found ourselves thinking over the past few week’s Cancerian experiences. All stories having to do with the depths of emotion, ancestral ties, connection to our roots, and matriarchal force loomed large for us when the Sun was in Cancer. Sunday’s energy implored us to tie up loose ends, and gently find acceptance for what has come to pass.

.

Today the Sun enters Leo at 7:51pm, bringing us into the season of the cosmic lion. Leo rules the Fifth House, the house of self-expression, drama, dress-up, burlesque, creative fertility of a performative kind. In medical astrology, Leo rules the heart, giving this sign a heavy dose of passion, as well as its famous bravado.

.

Leo is the artist of self-expression. With the Sun in Leo, the next few weeks find us focusing on all of the above. After the whirlwind of emotional and structural upheaval of the eclipses, we can melt ourselves into the warm waters of late summer, and begin to reconnect to our sense of self. Where are you in the midst of all this chaos and change? The Sun in Leo is here to guide you back to your own divine roar.
