The Moon is in Leo using a sidereal zodiac, the zodiac used in Vedic astrology.
When the Moon is in Leo we may be rather demanding and even a little haughty. Since the moon is the part of ourself that wants to flow with everything and get along with people, this fiery nature interrupts that lesson.
In addition, the Moon will be "hemmed" between Mars and Saturn. Hemming is a phenomenon in Vedic astrology that shows when the planet is surrounded on each side by difficult or gentle planets.

The mind will be very clear and forward looking on Monday and Tuesday. Just be careful not to become aggravated or confrontational, demanding appreciation.
