As the moon moves to Virgo this evening you may notice a very diminished 'drama queen' attitude of Leo fades away and we return to the practical way of thinking - perhaps making resolutions to get up tomorrow and clean the house, wash the dog, harvest those vegetables and set things in order.  The Monday in Leo was kind of like an extended weekend and now we truly return to the more practical side of our lives. Virgo reminds us that it is time to take responsibility and clean up the messes we've been leaving, A Virgo transit brings painstaking attention to details.
   As this the time in our new lunar cycle that we make a list of goals to be achieved in this cycle, as we 'plant the seeds of intention', Virgo energies will give us some practical thoughts towards what our goals should be.  Tiu's Day - Mars Day, is the Day of Activity and Physicality, Passion and Desire - an Action Day.  The lingering emotional energies of Leo today will be stroked by Tiu's energy so these practical thoughts won't occur until later this evening. There are Major magickal energies for Office Spells before the moon goes void of course mid-afternoon and minor magickal energies for job hunting.

  So this evening light some white or pastel candles on your altar or in a place quiet and sacred to you and plant these seeds.  They can be seeds of fresh wishes and goals, or new stages in project already underway. Start working towards putting energy into starting each project, but ask for some staying power to prevent things from petering out again. Perhaps reading through Inanna's richly symbolic myth will give you some stirring inspiration of accomplishing what you are setting out to do this lunar cycle. There is a great meditation for Moon in Leo, Sun in Leo at http://www.mooncircles.com/newmoon_pythia.html    -  Pythia Peay says in her meditation: "If there is an astrologically-appointed time to discovering and incarnating the glory of who you were born to be, the Leo New Moon is it. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and as it is taught in many wisdom traditions, your true self is a ray of light descended from the Sun of Suns, the Divine source. During the course of your journey on earth, however, the core of light within you may have become veiled, eclipsed by the darkness of forgetfulness and ignorance. The Leo New Moon, therefore, is an especially important time to reconnect with your purpose and heritage as a being of light. "  This afternoon would be a good time to do this meditation before the moon leaves the sign of Leo. Do it this morning after reading this meditation....
