Day Two: Opening

Waxing Moon in Leo

Sun in Cancer


The Moon transited into the astrological sign of Leo at 6:48* this morning. Leo is a Fixed Modality astrological sign.  We began this exploration in the Cardinal Modality of Cancer; drawing on that energy of initial outpouring  and beginning of expansion. Moving to the Fixed modality offers stability to what has begun its process of growth.  Leo is of the Fire element. This stability comes in the form of applied heat, will and energy.

The moon in this sign could be compared to the energies of Fire (Leo) of Water (Moon).  The proverbial action towards boiling the waters to achieve the correct temperature to adequately change one substance’s form  into that of another form.

My thoughts today go towards selecting what parts of my emotional baggage may need to be brought front and center for closer scrutiny.  This requires assertion on my part of my will and desire to make changes at this level; or to allow them to remain buried.  The Lion (Leo) out of necessity must go on the hunt to nourish, feed and sustain (Moon) its pride. It must also seize the opportunities that are presented or risk belaboring the process because of ill placed timing or selection.

Maybe the lessons of this day’s energy is seizing the moment. Taking firm hold of what needs to be converted into useable energy and then chowing down, emotionally satisfied and standing firm on ground that is shifting and moving to open the way for change.


* a little numerology of interest.  The Moon passed into Leo at 6:48 this morning. So,



9= Thresholds, triplicity of the Triune nature, gates, endings, initiatory and transformative experiences and the catalytic will towards change. It is both endings and beginnings of the next phase of numerical sequence or transition in the life stage. Seemed appropriate given the fiery will of Leo!

  1. I just got myself caught up on this blog. I find the information to be concise and extremely informative. I have some past experience in working with the cycles of the moon, and I really enjoy how Robin overlays her information with other systems which support the Astrology. I am looking forward to continuing this journey with you. Thank you for sharing on this topic.
