Leo - February 2019
Hello Leo! Dithering work colleagues need to make way for ambitious lions in February, as dynamic Mars storms into your career zone on the 15th! He has his eye on the top spot and won’t be taking any prisoners here; your focus will be firmly placed on the target, and woe betide anyone who gets in your way. Competition around you is likely to increase, so you will be working extra hard to be noticed, but this will not phase you because you know you have all the skills to do the job. Your forthright approach could create tension with superiors, however, because it will be very much of a case of things having to be done your way! If you want to avoid further conflicts the best you can do is try to listen and adapt to other people’s ways of working. Mars’s trine with the full Moon of the 19th will give you food for thought, as news of a colleague’s promotion or pay rise forces you to rethink your career priorities.
Jupiter continues to fill up your social calendar with exciting events this month, as you try to get the best you can out of life! Opportunities to try new leisure and creative activities and find love and romance will be prevalent, and you will probably feel much more relaxed and open about your feelings. This can be a hedonistic and impulsive transit, so take extra care when partying or spending money on pastimes. You will be feeling generous with your children too, and it will be much easier to spoil them or overspend on their wants. Jupiter’s square with Mercury between the 17th and 27th could create problems connected to payment for leisure activities, as you misjudge costs or overlook extras. This combination of energies can also indicate a tendency to overestimate or exaggerate, therefore if you are working on creative deadlines, it’s important to stay realistic.
Partnerships of all kinds are in the spotlight during the first ten days of February, as Mercury lingers in your house of relationships. This transit offers you the chance to work on communication not just with love partners but also business partners, customers, landlords and tenants. You may also seek mediation now in difficult legal matters or regarding communication issues with an ex-partner. The new Moon of the 4th could bring someone new into your world with whom you will find yourself working on an important project. Mercury conjuncts Lilith during the first week of the month, and this is set to be a rather wilful time in which you feel a strong need to be completely honest in your expression of feelings and thoughts. Lions with a birthday between the 10th and 17th of August will be especially affected by this urge for emotional candidness.
With the Sun in your house of transformation and regeneration from the 19th, personal changes will feature heavily in Leo world this month. Something needs to be altered at an emotional or psychological level, and as the Sun exerts his influence here you will finally begin to realise who or what is holding you back, so that you can make plans to change it. With Mercury also here from the 11th, these two characters will enhance your interest in dark and deep subjects and you will probably find yourself involved in controversial conversations which others are too wary to initiate! Mercury, Neptune and Pluto mix energies after the 19th, an extremely intuitive time for you, in which your psychic skills will receive a boost from an increase in sensitivity to other people’s needs. Enjoy your month!
