There is plenty going on in the zodiacal constellation Leo this weekend. It would be interesting to hear what astrologers are offering in the form of advice to those born between July 23 and August 22, those who are in the sign of Leo, the lion.
First of all there are two planets in Leo. There is the bright yellowish planet Saturn and the dull red planet Mars. This weekend, add the moon.
A thin crescent moon appears under the red planet Mars tomorrow night. The two are easy to spot low in the western sky after sunset.
On Sunday night, the slightly more illuminated crescent moon, higher in the sky, moves up alongside the ringed planet Saturn.
Leo is a springtime constellation. As the stars now shift into summer, Leo appears closer to the western horizon. The brightest star in the constellation is Regulus. Saturn is nearest to Regulus.
The brightest star in the constellation, Regulus shines between the two planets. Regulus is closer to Saturn.
In the new week, the moon leaves Leo and slips into the large zodiacal constellation Virgo.
The large planet Jupiter makes a late-night appearance. It is the brightest viewable planet. For those up around midnight, Jupiter rises in the southeast. Jupiter is in the zodiacal constellation Sagittarius.
