SUN WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Shine SUN OPPORTUNITY
July 22, 2014 at 5:41 PM EDT until
August 21, 2014 at 11:52 PM EDT

First I will address the Sun in Leo because the house that Leo rules in your personal natal chart is where you should be acting and reacting just like a Leo, which is why this information is so important. The the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Leo naturally rules the 5th house of acting, drama, theater, sensuality, children, procreation, parenthood, motherhood, sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, recreation, lovers, procreation, leisure, hobbies, games and sports, adopted children, places of amusement, child-like behavior, the playground, fun, joy, bliss, pleasurable pursuits, betting, gambling, casino's, lottery, gaming, games, gamblers, the ruination of one's credit, golf courses, films, cinemas, circuses, college students and the buildings, dating, courtship, intimacy, one-on-one connections, the heart, heart specialists, Love affairs, romance, Love-making, one's Lover, nightclub performers, parks, parties, one's passion, picnics, pastimes, the income from buying and selling of property, income from real estate, financial speculation, wagers.

This Leo energy has the motto of, "I will therefore I am" and is the "Giver of Life." Leo's have such tremendous personal power (willpower) that I always say, "If you want a mountain moved, then call a Leo because they are incredibly strong both physically and mentally." For this reason, Leo's absolutely HAVE TO stay fit and keep their body strong and I'm talking muscle-wise. Leo's must be in tip-top shape or their Light goes out! Haven't you seen Lion King and the difference between Mufasa and Scar? Oh what a crappy attitude and weak body will do to a lion! Think about it because it is the Sun that rules Leo and the Sun gives Life to everything. The Sun brightens up the sky and it Lightens us up. Leo wants to be admired and appreciated. In fact, I will go as far to say that Leo would rather be appreciated than admired any day of the week, although being admired isn't so shabby either. Leo's have a natural sunny disposition that is coupled with happiness and lots of trivial and lively pursuits, as you can see from the rulerships in the paragraph above.

Since Leo does rule the 5th house of God's playground and who has been put in charge of ruling God's children, often times Leo energy can be a bit too serious for the playground thereby demanding followers instead of suggesting a game of follow-the-leader. In this way the Leo becomes the bossy kid on the playground instead of the popular fun kid on the playground. Leo needs to make certain that they never fall in the bully role demanding loyalty. Leo's are HUGE on loyalty but it must be earned as with everything else. Even though Leo is the ruler of children, it is rare to see a Leo with a load of children. It would be more common to see a Leo with no children or possibly one or two children.

Leo's are highly romantic and if they are coupled up with a non-romantic partner, this can just about put out their Light. Romance, dating and intimacy are very important stimulation to the Leo. They are also dramatic and rather flamboyant. Simply stubbing their toe can be incredibly dramatic in showing their dramatic self-expression. Sometimes the drama is just a bit overkill.

For all Leo's, the Sun affects your 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house - Sun in Leo and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house. Read more about How Horoscopes Are Written Here! For your personal natal chart that has your exact birth date, time and location, then the flow from the 1st house would according to whatever Sun Sign is your Rising Sign. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The Sun in Leo is moving through your 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation.

This is a time when you should be getting clearer on your goals and where you are headed in Life. Identify what it is that motivates you to 'anything'. Always look at what motivates you to say, do and be absolutely anything. The Sun is shining in your own sign; therefore, expressing yourself through your own creative efforts will serve you well. People are taking notice of you, so stand up straight and smile.

Refrain from adopting a selfish attitude while the Sun is shining on you. It may be easy to ignore the needs and concerns of others when all the attention is shining on you. If you are going to place your own needs first, then see what you can learn about yourself and your outlook on the world through the reflection. Perform daily awareness checks where you realize something new about yourself (Good or bad). Become more aware of why you do the things you do and why you say the things you say.

MERCURY WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Communication

MERCURY OPPORTUNITY
August 15, 2014 at 12:43 PM EDT until
September 2, 2014 at 1:38 AM EDT

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First I will write about Mercury in Virgo and then the last couple of paragraphs will be about how it impacts your sign. Remember from the above paragraph, Mercury rules the mind, how we communicate and our reasoning power.

This is a very discriminating placement for Mercury since it naturally rules Virgo (also Gemini). This means the mind is critical and analytical, where it can cause you to become obsessed with detailed knowledge. This can prove to be a detriment if you get caught up on a certain word or a certain way something 'should be' communicated. Talk about trivial pursuits! Still, it is a fantastic position for detailed work such as scientific, accounting and research.

This Mercury placement will provide practicality, logic, quickness, precision and will have fine minute attention to detail as well as Good ol' fashion common sense. Even though Mercury rules Virgo and is strongly placed in this sign of discrimination, remember that some people are governed by emotions, prejudice and self-interest and not by logic. In these cases, refrain from getting stuck on the small stuff or criticism in your relationships. While this placement tends to be honest and is great for speaking engagements, it can be intolerant of minds that are not as Good as your own. This is the placement of the mental scavenger.

Mercury in Virgo is concerned with grammar, spelling punctuation, writing or anything that has to do with specialized communication skills. Even where science, accounting or research are concerned, calling in 'the experts' will be normal under this placement. Mercury in Virgo needs to be right simply because if they are wrong, someone could lose their Life. This is because Virgo rules science, healthcare and engineering, which are jobs that involve precision and accuracy. All the same, too much attention to detail could also cause one to lose sight of the main goal.

Those of you with Mercury afflicted in your natal chart should try to use the placement of your Venus to help you balance your thought with your emotions.

Mercury in Virgo is moving through your 2nd house of money, monetary gains and losses, security value system, morals, possessions, your own resources, personal self esteem and talents.

Mercury also rules the mind and thinking. Now your mind is thinking more about money, values and possessions. Your mind is geared more toward how you can attain more and hold onto what you already possess. Money can easily drop into your lap out of nowhwere. The keyword here is "possess." Re-think how you view money and how you have chosen to use it in your Life. Have you been possessive? Possessiveness usually comes from a state of fear. Your interest in money and how to create more of it is expanded during this time. This does not mean you will lose money, it just means you will be re-thinking the "value" of money and how you use it. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

VENUS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Love

VENUS OPPORTUNITY
August 12, 2014 at 3:23 AM EDT until
September 5, 2014 at 1:06 PM EDT

The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. Venus is the estrogen in the chart. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Leo and then the last couple of paragraphs will pertain to your sign. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart think "Love of" whatever sign is involved. Venus in Leo means Love of Life because Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun and the Sun is the Giver of Life. Typically Leo's are very uncomfortable talking about death or especially contemplating their own end of Life because they give Life. The Sun shines and the sign of Leo shines their sunny disposition on the world bringing it to Life. I think the motto for a Leo should be, "I Love Life therefore I am." Leo naturally rules the 5th house of dating, intimacy, one-on-one connections, fun, pleasure, the playground, joy, bliss, creativity, pro-creation, children and child-like behavior. As you can see, God has put Leo in charge of His playground and His children. This is why Leo's are so expressive, animated and bright in how they show up on the scene. It's like a Light is turned on when a Leo walks into the room. Head's turn toward the Light, just like a flower grows toward the Sun.

Leo is ruled by the biggest heavenly body, the Sun, which is probably why their ego is so big. Leo's have a lot of pride, which is interesting because a social group of lions is called a pride. One thing Leo's absolutely have to do is remain humble because they have to be able to relate to the children. Puffing up and standing big over someone is the absolute wrong thing to do. Leo's must humble themselves to relate to their audience, children, group or pride. If they hurt 'the pride' they will get 'their pride' hurt. Wherever Leo is in your personal natal chart this is where you will need to be admired and appreciated the most. Mark my words on that!

Leo is also the royalty of the zodiac, queen/king of the jungle. Leo's enjoy lavish parties and social gatherings and do not mind being the center of attention. There will be some Leo's who absolutely do not want to be the center of attention but somehow they will be, even if they work behind the scenes. I liken this to a film director or producer who isn't necessarily on stage but still wins the ultimate accolade called, "Oscar!" Leo's enjoy decorating their space lavishly and should have nothing but the best, especially if there is gold or gems associated with it.

It is important to note that Venus in Leo can really dramatize emotions so we will likely seek movies and/or surround ourselves with people who are rather dramatic. In fact, this transit is so dramatic that movies that star Oscar winning actors and actresses may reappear on cable, satellite or movie rentals.

Leo is also the ruler of the 5th house of children, so we may see the spotlight on children. Actually, we may also see in the news more stories on children being saved, found, protected and cured under this transit. Leo the Lion is the protector of children and no one messes with children when a Leo is around, especially when there is a fondness for children like Venus in Leo.

Venus in Leo is incredibly romantic and affectionate. Remember that Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun, the sign of the sunny disposition and giver of Life and Venus is all gooey, affectionate and romantic. Venus is musically inclined and it's artsy. Chances are everyone will be invited to some sort of lavish gathering or party during this transit and my suggestion is to accept the invitation and make certain you show up. Prima donnas will come out of the woodwork but that's okay, they can't help it because they are just living out their chart. Who knows, maybe you will be the prima donna in the crowd seeking to be the center of attention.

Leo is all about sincerity and loyalty. Leo's on not only loyal, they absolutely require loyalty in return but you have to be worthy of that kind of loyalty.

Anyone who has Venus in Leo in their personal natal chart will need their partner to look Good at all times. They want a partner they can be 'proud' of and how off. Venus in Libra is the same way but it is more about the person taking care of themselves than it is being a sense of pride as it is for Venus in Leo. Even though Venus in Leo wants their partner to look great at all times, that partner will still need to give enough attention to the Venus in Leo or they will get jealous. And I mean really 'roaring' jealous.

For all Leo's, Venus in Leo is moving through your 1st house of personality, how you see the world, how others see you, attitude, appearances, worldly outlook, self-awareness and how you respond.

The 1st house is not just how you see the world, but also how others see you. Others are naturally attracted to you even when you just walk into a room. Work it baby, work it! Venus is all about Love and beauty; therefore, you will be attracting attention right and left. This is an opportunity for you to show your fun and lively side while you have everyone's attention. In fact, if you are in sales, this is the time to work your magic because everyone is listening to you.

You may be more compromising and eager to please because everyone is so eager to please you. Refrain from taking advantage of other people while you have them under your spell. You may also attract new friends and a potential romantic partner. Get out there and have some fun. If you can take a vacation or a few vacations days, this is a great time to get up and go!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house - - Venus in Leo and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house.

For your personal natal chart that has your exact birth date, time and location, then the flow from the 1st house would according to whatever Sun Sign is your Rising Sign.

MARS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Drive MARS OPPORTUNITY
July 25, 2014 at 10:24 PM EST until
September 13, 2014 at 5:57 PM EDT

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Scorpio and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mars is aggressive, impulsive and ram-rod's its way through whatever it wants and it will do without your permission and quite comfortably I might add without a guilty bone in its exo-skeleton body. Mars does not take no for an answer. It's more like, "Oh yeah, well watch this!" Mars naturally rules Aries but it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio, so you see, Mars is very very happy here. It's like Mars has come home from a long period of being away. Pluto is the modern day ruler of Scorpio but this Mars in Scorpio is sah-weeeeeeet because it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. Of course you know me, if you have been coming to this website long enough, I can find great things and great outcomes in any aspect. It's all in how you choose to look at it. Every single aspect or planetary placement has positive and negative influences and your job is to choose wisely and handle the energy and not let it handle you.

Mars in Scorpio brings about intense desires, so whatever your desire is, then go for it. If you want to lose some weight . . GO FOR IT! If you want to go after that job . . GO FOR IT! If you want to connect with that certain Love interest . . GO FOR IT! Mars in Scorpio does not take no for an answer. The most hard-core placement for Mars is when it goes into Leo and that's because Leo is the strongest of willpower, so Mars in Leo will literally move a mountain. That's the kind of energy boxer's want. Well, Mars in Scorpio is the second most intense and hard-core placement for Mars. This is 'umpf' with purpose! Mars in Scorpio is relentless and intense. Mars in Scorpio has purpose and meaning. Mars in Scorpio has FOLLOW-THROUGH. Dang, if you want to play better golf, then you will probably follow-through on your swing. No kidding folks, Mars in Scorpio has follow-through so that you will complete your task, mission, chore or project. BAM!

Mars in Scorpio reminds me of 5 Navy Seals who held off an invading foreign army. No kidding! Are you pumped up yet and ready to rumble with Mars in Scorpio? Mars in Scorpio is pumped up and ready to rumble. It reminds me of a boxer standing in front of a mirror pumping himself up, rolling his neck around, jumping up and down warming his body up, punching at the mirror and the next thing you hear is the crowd roar because he scored a knock-out punch. I mean this is intense!

Folks, I do want to remind you that Mars in Scorpio brings about a powerful sex drive and can really get your mind a bit pre-occupied. For those of you who have someone in your back pocket, while hanging on to someone else, this can really get you into trouble so I'm firing a warning shot here. You will likely get caught if you sleeping around or even thinking about it. So, either knock it off or just break up with one of the individuals. Don't say I didn't fire the warning shot. You cannot hide anything from Scorpio energy because Scorpio is the detective, researcher and 007 secret agent of the zodiac and it will find out. Don't even attempt to lie to Scorpio energy because Scorpio knows your lying before you even tell the lie. It's spooky.

When Mars in Scorpio is afflicted, as it will be with the Sun, Jupiter and the New Moon on July 26, 2014, any anger associated with this energy can lead to incredible resentment, hostility and grudge holding. Mars in Scorpio will also form an exact square to Jupiter on August 1, 2014. In fact, Mars in Scorpio can be so domineering with emotions that it can literally beat another person down into servitude and submission. Now listen, those of you in tough relationships right now, it does not have to be that way. In fact, if just one person in the relationship eases up just a little bit, then this affliction can stop that tough energy in its tracks. Picture a tug-of-war match between two people. What happens when one person let's go? Don't just ease up on the tension because that continues the tug-of-war, you have to literally let go and take your hands, attitude and mind off the argument and it will stop. Just like that it will stop because the other person does not have an opponent on the other end of the rope to continue the war. It doesn't mean you give up, it just means you don't play. THAT my dear little mentators is how you beat an afflicted Mars in Scorpio at their own game, especially if you have Mars in Leo in your chart. Mars in Leo is actually stronger that Mars in Scorpio and can beat Mars in Scorpio at its own game simply by having the willpower to do so and 'not' get engaged in a game of tug-of-war. Visualize the release of that rope and whoever it is, or whatever it is at the other end of the rope and the energy will fall away under its own weight.

Mars in Scorpio is also very possessive, jealous and security driven. There is one thing an individual should never do and that is 'try' to make a Scorpio jealous. Do not light that fire because it will not go out and you will regret it. Scorpio energy is not neutral . . it's not gray . . it's not so-so, it's not moderate . . it's not wishy-washy . . it's not we'll see . . it's not maybe . . it's not indifferent . . it's ALL OR NOTHING! Folks, this energy can take you to the heights of spiritual awareness or the deep dark depths of moral degradation and indecency, it really depends on what motivates your spirit . . . or should I say what you allow your spirit to succumb to.

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Scorpio is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family. It describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. This house also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode.

Mars may try to do a number on your spirit during this time, especially with regard to home and family ties. Remain calm because Mars is just trying to ruffle your feathers and get your dander up. This has to do with actions and words in the home and family that are bringing about past memories. The great thing about the past is that you can learn from it. If you choose not to learn, then Mars will keep yanking your chain. Refrain from irrational thought, actions and words. You must remember that your motto is, "I will therefore I am" and you must invoke your God-given willpower under this Mars influence. Think before you speak and you will be just fine. Mars absolutely Loves a Good fight because it is an aggressive planet. Channel this aggressive energy into a project or some worthwhile cause. By the way, you are a worthwhile cause too.

CHIRON WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Drive CHIRON OPPORTUNITY
February 8, 2011 at 3:57 PM EDT until
April 17, 2018 at 4:10 AM EDT

Chiron in Pisces turns Retrograde at 17 degrees on Saturday, June 20, 2014 at 8:46 AM EDT until November 24, 2014 at 7:44 PM EDT at 13 degrees. This is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. The subject matter below in your 8th house is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Leo's, this involves your 8th house of other people's money, joint resources, coupling resources with another including sex, death, rebirth, transportation, insurance, taxes, wills and beneficiaries. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
