The Moon in conjunction with Jupiter,

is found to be a good day in all humane affairs.

It’s the first day of a new astrological month as the Sun enters the midsummer sign of Leo the Lion. The Sun is most at home in Leo, where it represents the open heart experiencing pure love. One problem associated with Leo is being so full of our own energy that we lose sight of others. We can feel like a beautiful garden flower in full bloom, but we crave appreciation. We need to be seen.
