Leo - January 2018
Hello Leo! There is big lunar news for lions in January, our first lunar eclipse of the year will take place in your sign on the 31st of January, and is sure to set you thinking deeply about your future! Eclipses are important emotional events; they signify occasions when limiting situations which are holding us back, must be dealt with and eliminated so that they do not hinder our progress on our soul journey. The area affected here connects with the ways you communicate and express your intelligence to the world, hence you may find yourself reflecting on your education and how you can improve yourself. Information may be revealed about relationships which will allow you to finally see why things haven’t been working out as you hoped. If your birthday falls between the 5th and 12th of August, the north node will also pass over your natal Sun, so this will be a particularly intense time for you, as you re-evaluate your current path.
The Sun spends the first three weeks of the month in your work zone, where he is joined by Venus and Pluto during the days up to the 18th. Your personality will really be packing a punch now, and others in the work place will look to you to lead the way in challenging situations. It’s a deeply creative time in which you need to be expressing your inner nature in everyday life, or all that intensity could turn inward and cause you some issues with your emotional health. Your affinity for investigative work will also be strong and will take you into projects where research or the uncovering of hard-to-reach information is required. The new Moon on the 17th makes a positive connection with Mars and is fabulous for applying for a new job or going for a promotion. Property renovations may also be on the agenda now.
Venus arrives in your relationship sector on the 19th and will soon see you feeling loved up, as having someone else with whom you can share thoughts and experiences becomes your driving force. This is a fabulous time to meet someone new at a romantic level, although you will be rather fussy in your choices; potential partners need to be charming, attractive and well-groomed, you won’t have time for crudeness or uncouth appearances! It’s also a great time for discussing your needs with ex-partners, landlords, tenants and anyone else with whom you are about to enter into a legal agreement. Ongoing battles with rivals or competitors may also fizzle out as a compromise becomes reachable. With Mars also storming into your house of romance on the 27th, you will be less inclined toward flirting and more interested in getting straight to the point. Take care that you don’t scare a less assertive new love away with your straightforward approach.
Prior to our end of month eclipse we will also see a full Moon on the 2nd in your house of secrets and spiritual matters. This is a period for taking some down time after the stress of the Christmas, so as everyone else is getting back to work, you really need to be thinking about taking a break and having extra sleeps! Uranus in square with the Sun between the 9th and 20th might also send a few health problems your way, as you feel your vitality sapped by feelings of being unable to relax and calm your nerves. Mercury and Neptune in a positive link from the 12th to 18th will enhance your intuition and allow you to quiet your mind a little more. Have a fantastic month!
