Leo - December 2018
How are you, Leo?! December is a time for romance, as the Sun spends the days up to the 23rd in your house of love! With Jupiter also continuing to shower this part of your chart with good fortune, this is a fabulous time to get out there and meet someone special. Your charisma and magnetic personality will work wonders and you will find others are very keen to spend time with you. The new Moon on the 7th could send you an exciting love affair, although the Moon is challenged around this time by Neptune and Mars, suggesting that you will probably both be on different pages when it comes to what you want to gain from this union. The key is not to read too much into romantic interactions which arise, but just enjoy yourself and go with the flow. The Sun also clashes with Mars between the 1st and 15th; a expressing yourself to loved ones during these days will prove difficult, as impatience to be understood makes you angry and restless.
Mercury spends the first twelve days of the month putting right all the mischievous problems he created in your domestic zone during his retrograde spell in November. The days of the 7th to 12th are best for getting back on track with property-related correspondence or resolving issues connected to older relatives, before then you will probably still encounter a good deal of confusion or delay. The same applies to important discussions with family members, and young people in your household may seem especially lacking in motivation and direction between the 1st and 7th. Lions with a birthday between the 18th and 25th of August could feel particularly frustrated by Mercury’s presence in this part of your world, as he squares your natal Sun for the first fortnight of the month. Don’t try too hard to get your point across, the pressure will ease considerably after the 15th.
Chiron turns direct on the 9th, signalling a more promising time for psychological healing and working on your spiritual development, after a significant period of feeling a little lost and bewildered around such matters. Chiron and Mars in conjunction after the 23rd and into early January, will create issues around the expression of anger and aggression. Confrontations are best avoided over the festive period because you won’t express yourself in the way you want to. This will simply cause more anger, which is likely to be internalised and possible lead to some health issues. The full Moon on the 22nd offers you a chance to step away from the busyness of Christmas and have some time alone with your thoughts. Intuition and psychic sense will be very powerful around this date, so pay extra attention to unusual sensations and listen to what your dreams are telling you.
Unexpected trips to mysterious places are back on the agenda in December as Uranus makes a brief return to your house of travel. The need to be free to explore the universe at your own pace will once again be taking you into some spontaneous choices about your future. Before Uranus leaves this part of your chart for the final time, it is important that you reconcile these restless feelings somehow into the everyday routines of your life. It may not always be possible to escape those routines on a whim and jet off to somewhere new and exotic; you can instead continue to improve your knowledge via additional learning courses, or by making contact with other social groups which share your opinions and desire for mental stimulation. Have a marvellous December!
