Astrology of the Day – Moon into Leo – Tuesday 27th February 2018

Venus sextile Pluto - intense passion

The Moon starts off in the sign of Cancer, and for a short while we are emotional, moody and sometimes irrational as well. The Moon in this sign can make us to act in a most difficult way if we are upset, however the start of this day is accompanied by a soothing trine to Chiron, and this will help settle any irritability, and we can settle any differences, or help others to do the same.

Just a few hours into the day, the Moon moves into a very different sign, Leo. Leo is the sign of the king and the individual, and whereas the Moon in Cancer can be quite private, Leo likes to put on show. For the rest of the day, our emotions will be more dramatised than normal, our pride will be important to us, and we may be more confident too. The Leo Moon want to be loved and noticed, and being ignored will tend to mildly hurt us.

The first aspect after this shift of sign sees Venus still in Pisces making a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. This strengthens the intensity within any relationship in both a good and bad way. There will be more strength of feeling between you and a loved one, and there can be high passion triggered now, but if things turn sour, then the intensity of this connection can turn nasty and vitriolic. This connection can dredge up much strength of feeling about what we value and what we don't, and we will defend what we think is right in a most fanatical and demonstrative way. If you are in any kind of debate or meeting, expect everyone to stand their ground and not be as diplomatic as they normally would be.

The Moon later in the the day makes a double inconjunct aspect, initially to Saturn and then to the Sun. The inconjunct aspect here will make us feel rather emotionally uneasy, and a harsh situation, through something someone says or does could force to us take a course of action that we would rather not do. On the other hand, we may find that something we are doing goes wrong, so that we get upset or disappointed. Our pride may be hurt too, and this may make us sulk, or act in a rather childish and immature way. This is not the easiest end to our Tuesday, but remember that hope springs eternal, and tomorrow is always another day to look forward to.
