Dear MoonCat Visitor,

Greetings!!

Here's wishing you the best August ever!!!

I've been off work all of July from my regular job, and have taken some time to do much needed updates on MoonCat's Astrology. Broken and outdated links and formatting have been cleaned up, and I've added a new reading or two.There's always more to do (I think I may have made the site too huge!), but for now I hope it's a substantial improvement.

Many Blessings!

How to Treat your Leo

.


Your Leo is independent - yet family oriented; highly organized and efficient - yet demanding of others. Leo is King or Queen of the castle, and wants everyone to know it! Shining brightly through that magnificent mane is a great joy for living... a completely self- contained world of fun and creativity. Leo wants the outer world to be just as shiny as she strives to be, and will go to any lengths to achieve it.

Your Leo needs to be happy with how the world perceives him. If enough praise is not forthcoming, you will have a sulky, growly lion! Make sure you take time to compliment, heavily. And please don't criticize overtly - make sly little helpful suggestions instead. Leo is very sensitive, but bounces back easily because he can't stand unhappiness. Life is too fun, and creative opportunities too tempting for Leo to be out of the action for long.

Remember that you are part of your Sun-God or Goddess' world. Your reputation is just as important to your Leo as her own. Do your best to look good, sound dignified and make your space organized and attractive. Sweep the dirt out of public view, and don't forget to comb your hair!

Feed your Leo with joyful, sunny surroundings, the laughter of children, organized spaces and free-time to roam. Keep competition far away from your very territorial animal. Shower her with cuddly affection, your undying love and devotion, and most of all PRAISE. You will be rewarded with a glowing soul whose heart radiates with blissful devotion to your needs. Your Leo is sure to passionately love, defend and protect you. It's his job!

How to Treat your Virgo

.


Your Virgo is an Earth Angel, a swift, intelligent Mercury without wings, a dynamically aware work-force. She notices everything. He is hyper-awake.

Virgo, though unassuming, kind and shy, is one of the strongest signs in the Zodiac. This is intelligent earthiness - discerning practicality - a strong yet gentle kindness and nurturing born of sheer common sense. Your Virgo strives to be a model of perfection. She loves to please you! He is driven to impress you with his talent for making the most out of the best!

Mercury's other child, Gemini, is a much more lighthearted, air-born spirit. While Gemini is busy gathering knowledge, Virgo insists on action and wants to know what will be done with the information at hand. The question is always - "of what practical use is this?" A master at taking things apart and analyzing them - Virgo always finds room for improvement.

So how can you possibly impress one who sees and knows so much? How can you hide your imperfections? What will you do when YOU are the object of her keen observation? You must be a strong spirit to be with Virgo - both hard working and emotionally tough. You will be happiest with your Virgo if you are one who appreciates purity, discernment and a logical mind; and spurns the superfluous. Feed your Virgo with uncluttered surroundings, a practical, frugal budget and pure, beautiful speech. Make healthful foods a priority. Take the trash out often. Iron your clothes. Ask your Virgo for help - Virgo lives to serve! Remind your Virgo how much you appreciate his careful choices. Tell her how impressed you are with her impeccable taste and well thought out advice. Make her a part of your life- improvement team! You will be rewarded with an eternal help-mate, and a devoted, down-to-earth, sensual, soft-hearted, compassionate lover.

Strength in the Tarot

.


Strength in the Tarot is associated with the Sign of Leo

~ Passion ~ Intense feelings burn inside you, and you are ready to explode! Your passion is hot... it begs for an outlet. You feel you could conquer any obstacle, take whatever you want or need and hold it to you forever, force the changes you desire to come to fruition. You feel like a god or goddess with infinite power!

There is one deck that portrays Strength as a weight- lifter holding up an incredibly huge barbell. The woman above is holding open the jaws of a lion! Imagine the courage, the force of will and the sheer inner strength one would need to accomplish these feats. Passion is what is required - a desire so strong that it cannot be denied, and all fear of failure disappears.

Strength sometimes shows up when feelings are bottled up. There's something within the querent that demands expression - or at least recognition. Fear is not what holds you back - but rather opportunity. You have the presence of mind to know what circumstances will support your efforts, and what circumstances will not. Sometimes, it's just a waiting game. Other times - an impossibility, yet the feelings remain! Strength therefore, can also be Frustration.

What do you desire? What are you passionate about? Are you expressing that passion? Do you have obstacles that force you to keep that feeling inside of you? How do you find release? Once you've got what you want - do you regain that feeling of super-ability and go back for more - or do you find another passion? Ultimately - Strength and Passion are qualities we all possess, but may not always recognize, or use...

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~

.


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto is on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp through the end of 2008, bringing a new Plutonian era of change in our social institutions, government and power structures. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - these are exciting times!! With Pluto first entering Capricorn accompanied by Venus and Jupiter, we may indeed feel blessed with good fortune, harmony and high ideals!

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

The North and South Nodes are now on the Aquarius/Leo axis ('til 8/21/09). This node placement brings positive connections based on love for humanity and the quest for social equality, along with healing in the area of self-love and love for loyalty's sake. This is a good time to examine our motives, use our egos wisely, and take the high road - or face karmic consequences!

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Mewsings from Venus & Mars... August 2008

Mars in Virgo until 8/19 is intent on doing the right thing. Exactness, precision and purity of action will be more in evidence during this time. If you have projects going, you are likely to demand perfection.

Venus in Leo until 8/5 brings some style and flair, with perhaps bolder expectations and grander ideas in mind. She may be more into her looks and making an impression, and might need extra time to pamper herself - or maybe she will call on you to pamper her!

Venus in Virgo from 8/5 to 8/30 is gaining on Mars (they conjunct on 9/11 in Libra). This Venus is kind, helpful and discerning. She can be counted on to solve problems, and create a harmonious environment!

Mars is in Libra from 8/19 to 10/3. This is a time for taking charge in relationships, and creating balance and order. If the give/take ratio is off, adjustments may need to be made!

 
FUTURE FORECAST FOR LOVE

During the first week in August, along with a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, Venus trines Pluto while Mars opposes Uranus, bringing strong sensuality and magnetism and a greater tendency to take chances or make bold or sudden moves. Karmic meetings could spark serious, or at least passionate bonds.

The second week in August, Venus conjuncts Saturn while Mars bi- quintiles N.Node/Chiron/Neptune. With Chiron conjunct Neptune and North Node, opportunities for spiritual healing and renewal will abound. Chance encounters and all forms of communication should be approached with kindness, honor and integrity - as all things we say and do carry meaning, purpose and power.

During the third week, Mars squares Pluto and Venus trines Jupiter in Virgo/Capricorn. We may notice a more marked contrast between those engaged in power plays related to material gain, and those engaged in meaningful pursuits that enlighten and benefit others.

The last week in August, Venus opposes Uranus and bi- quintiles Node/Chiron/Neptune in Aquarius. Mars is octile. A compulsion to bring peace and harmony can be sparked into real action. This is a time to use kind words and understanding in all things, and let compassion rule the day!

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Capricorn til 1/5/09 will help set the stage for societal changes, and perhaps help to broaden the horizons of our policy makers and power brokers. This can be a year of making great leaps forward, taking chances, and making new ways the status quo.

Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and from authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's make conscious guardianship of our world the central focus for all we do!
