The Generosity of Leo

(Moon in Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra 6:56 a.m. EDT. Moon square Mercury in Taurus at 2:47 p.m. Mars in Gemini sextile Uranus in Aries 10:39 p.m.)

“These meatballs are so good. I’m leaving the waitress a tip.” – My niece, Elena.

Elena’s a Leo. When I looked at today’s aspects, I remembered her announcement in an Italian restaurant this weekend. Elena had no money, but the adults all nodded and said, “Wow, OK. Wonderful.” Then we watched Elena casually waltz back to the Kids’ Table, satisfied. At the end of the meal adults scurried to give Elena money, which she handed to my father for the tip.

Today’s Leo moon will give us opportunities to make a show of our generosity. The other side of Leo is infamous: a certain bossiness or stubbornness. But a natural sense of royalty informs Leo. Leos can show us all how to embrace our inner dignity. They’re learning to embrace theirs, and when the moon is in Leo, we are too.

If anything strikes you as wonderful, say or show it. If you see a chance to be magnanimous, take it. Whether with someone you love or a driver wants to cut you off, you can always take the high road. Remember to take your time and try to stay open. Your performance today will instruct others in some way, so try to embrace the very best of your own potential.
