Leo - December 2019
Hi Leo! December is a busy time for lions, as Venus joins Pluto and Saturn in your house of everyday chores and routines! Pluto and Saturn are, of course, pushing through this part of your chart for the foreseeable future, making you painfully aware of your responsibilities and commitments, but they are joined for the first three weeks of the month by Venus, who will be trying her best to support you as you strive for a peaceful and happy working environment. This is a time for making your surroundings a little less chaotic and stressful, and you are more likely than usual to find yourself involved in local groups or social activities where creative activity and improvement of the area around you are featured. Venus and Mars mixing energies during the first fortnight in the month also makes for an excellent time to tackle domestic chores and decorate, renovate or purchase new items for your home. Dealing with cantankerous relatives should be easier during this period too, as compassion and tolerance win out.
Mercury will be pepping up your house of leisure and pleasure between the 10th and 29th, and mental stimulation is the name of the game here; pastimes which don’t entertain your mind are out, as you seek intellectually challenging experiences to keep you busy. This house rules romance and love, and the same applies here, as potential partners need to be clever, funny and able to sustain your interest. Creatively you may struggle a little, simply because Mercury likes to quantify and classify, and this can restrict the instinctive, imaginative drive that allows you to give full expression to your artistic nature. Thoughts could also feel a little murky and confusing around the days of the 17th to 24th when Neptune gets involved. At the same time, this is an excellent transit for creative writing, you will excel at expressing your thoughts and feelings in words.
Friendships may struggle under the influence of the full Moon on the 12th, as lunar light reveals all the aspects of your feelings about friends, good and bad. If people haven’t been loyal, or have shown themselves to be unworthy of your devotion and commitment, this is the time to let them down gently and find yourself some nicer people to spend your time with. Lilith continues to create feelings of jealousy and possessiveness around your relationships, hence these could also be emotions you find yourself dealing with. On a positive note, Venus’s connections with Saturn and Neptune from the 6th to 18th may send you a new and supportive work colleague, who will turn out to be a very good friend over the coming months. They have much to teach you and could initially appear as a mentor or trainer.
Some marvellous career opportunities are headed your way this month, as a very special solar eclipse lights up your career zone on the 26th. To make this event even more spectacular, Jupiter will also be in this part of your chart after the 3rd, and his good luck energy will heavily influence the eclipse and the choices you make around your work at this time. Uranus also dips in from your career sector to liven things up, and chances to prove yourself to authority figures will come unexpectedly or in unusual circumstances. As you know, any seeds you decide to sow under the light of a solar eclipse will flower into amazing experiences and events in the following six months, so consider your options carefully, and by the summer you will find great success from your actions! Have a wonderful December!
