The moon is slowly drifting through the sign of Leo as you tend to matters that place you on center stage. While situations are largely about you, your nurturing instincts are nevertheless aroused prompting a strong desire to take care of someone. When taken to the extreme, this can result in dependency issues. Perhaps this is a period where you invest a great deal of time and energy into your children and feel pride in their accomplishments. It may be that your children require extra love and attention from you, especially if your relationship or home environment is undergoing change.
Additionally, you have a strong need for financial security for yourself and for your family. This can be motivated by financial concerns and/or an increase in child-related expenses. The effort to create stability may include business dealings or financial speculation involving restaurants, farming, real estate, and food processing and distribution.

Even when this is not the case, the strong demand to relate emotionally can manifest in any number of intense personal situations that move a relationship toward the direction of greater emotional depth. This might also manifest through loyalty in personal friendship.
Alternatively, you may decide to devote this energy towards an artistic or creative means of emotional expression such as painting, writing, or any other experience that provides emotional fulfillment.

You may be faced with heavy burdens or important decisions that rest squarely on your shoulders. Alternatively, important tasks could be perpetually postponed or excuses made to overlook obligations.

Sometimes this will involve reconciling the struggle to maintain very different beliefs while still a part of the mainstream. The keyword for this period is conciliation and points to those with the capacity to exercise discrimination in the affairs of daily life through tact, understanding, and diplomacy. Those in possession of these qualities are able to bring quarreling factions to a peaceful union.
