July 12th 2014 Full Moon in Capricorn
A full moon occurs at 7:25AM ET at 20 degrees 3 minutes of Capricorn. In Capricorn, we’re not very open about how we feel, instead focusing on our duties, our goals, and our careers. Some of us can achieve the goals we’ve set for ourselves, and are rewarded for the good work we’ve done to get what we want. Some of us experience setbacks, and feel that our goals are more unattainable than ever before. Our success or failure is tied to how we feel about ourselves, and the more we succeed, the better we feel, and the more we fail, the worse we feel. We don’t want to focus much on emotions, believing that they just distract, and can bottle things up. The direction we’re going in can seem hazier than before, or more clear. Capricorn rules governments and politicians, so we could see some sort of important development at this time (or worsening behavior) that impacts our rulers. If you're a Capricorn Sun, Moon, or late Capricorn rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
July 26th 2014 New Moon in Leo
A new moon occurs at 6:42PM ET at 3 degrees 51 minutes of Leo. In Leo, we don’t feel so serious and focused on what must be done. We want to shed our work and responsibilities and let loose. We want to play, let out our inner children, and be creative. We can seem more theatrical and dramatic, but in a playful way. We’re romantic and flirty, but don’t take love too seriously. We like getting attention, and crave more from the people around us. Spend time at parties, on a hobby, with your kids, or going on dates. Be engaging and have some fun. Smile, laugh, be jovial and make others feel as good as you do. Leo does rule the entertainment industry, so there could be a positive development there. Leo also rules the heart and body in general, so there could be some news on the health front. And Leo rules men, so this could be a beneficial new moon for the males in your life. If you're a Leo Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
