Moon Mind :::
New Moon was early this morning in Leo at 6:37 CDT. Sun is currently there as well in its own sign. Moon is in Purvaphalguni nakshatra until 20:56 CDT this evening when it moves to Uttarphalguni nakshatra. We might be feeling some upliftment, a general easing, and a willingness to step out and shine because of the Sun and Jupiter influences on the day.
Venus and Mercury are both Sandhi as they change signs today and are heading into more positive houses. Fast moving Mercury moves to its exaltation position (Virgo) at 14:10 CDT today and will be there with Venus for a few hours until Venus moves to Libra (its own sign) at 21:50 this evening where it joins Saturn and Rahu there.
The focus for today as well as for the new Moon is on relationships, the feminine (including divine feminine), creativity, passion and all things related to Venus as well as the emotional correlation to these. Use this time for self-expansion, but do it with an inward focus. There is some vulnerability with this new Moon so be careful with the aforementioned indications as well as with travel and cars/driving, at this time.
Cultivating your creativity is time well spent today. Find this Week's Creative Engagement New Moon activity via my horoscopes ::: http://www.swatijrjyotish.com/1/post/2013/09/horoscopes-for-the-week-of-92.html
