Dec 22 - Jan 19
Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
We will all experience the major shift that Jupiter will make in the early hours of the month, with where the planet of luck and expansion is defining where the main focus of any year is. However, for you the shift is probably more pronounced than for anyone other than for Aries, who have a similarly dramatic shift. For you, the month not only begins with Jupiter in his final days in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but with Venus having just left and the Sun here, as he always will be at this time of year. By 3rd December Jupiter will be gone and the Sun will be on his own and while matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative will have plenty of cosmic attention, they will no longer be the main focus. That main focus will follow Jupiter as he not only returns to your busy work sector but to join up with Saturn and Pluto here, for the first time in our lifetime. This will bring the planets of luck, change and the planet that has the power to move mountains together and is something that you have been preparing for since as far back as Pluto's return in 2008. The contrast between Jupiter starting the month in a playful part of your chart and within days moving into your busy work sector is a shift that is here to stay. However, you not only have the Sun in a playful part of your chart until 22nd December and Mercury from 9th December to 29th December, Mars will return in the New Year to continue to fight for a balance between work and play through to the end of February. This is the start of a massive year for job growth, expansion and opportunities that will define the whole of 2020, but there is another reason why it is important to fight to retain a balance between work and play. On 20th December Venus will return to your relationship sector, a month before the Sun is due to turn the solar spotlight onto your relationships next month. Having the planet of love spend Christmas, New Year, the holiday period and the first two weeks of 2020 in your relationship sector is good news for all your relationships.
Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage, especially this late in the professional year. Yet while any week will be off to a good start with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go, even more so when this is anything but just an ordinary working week. With Venus in her last and Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in his first full week in your work sector, this is the start of a major new period of job growth and expansion. With Jupiter moving into a friendly aspect to Uranus in your work sector over the weekend, there will be clues to something brewing from the get go. However, with the Sun in his last full week in a playful part of your chart, there is still a real push to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. Thursday's Full Moon adds a social element that has been missing but will be much appreciated at this time of year.
Monday 9th of December 2019
The divide between the planetary influences you are under is really on display today and that makes a bit of work/life balance tension a case of perfect timing. On the one hand, you have Mercury joining the Sun in a playful part of your chart, just after adventurous lunar vibes ran their course yesterday. Yet, on the other hand, you not only have the Moon in your career sector but amplifying and highlighting a major coming together of planets on the job and career fronts. A bit of work/life balance tension will expose where there is a balance issue and how to resolve it.
Do you secretly believe that you're a bit special? Well here's the truth, you are!
Leo is a fire sign, ruled by the Sun, the star at the centre of our universe, around which all the planets revolve. In accord with the Sun, you were born to shine, to become the centre of your own universe, radiating warmth, love and joy, in your own special and totally unique way!
Don't be shy about this, (those of you with demure Virgo or reticent Cancer planets can be). Whether openly or secretly, you love basking in the limelight. You feel energised and alive when you have the applause of an audience. It's not important if that audience is only composed of your friends, colleagues, or children. We can't all be superstars on the big screen (although an abundance of Leo energy does shine from there) but you're sure to be a much loved superstar to those who personally orbit around you.
Your sign rules the heart and spine, and similarly is renowned for being warm hearted, magnanimous and courageous.
Leo's symbol is the lion, a sometimes playful, sometimes fierce, ever strong and regal beast. A lion lives in a pride, while being fiercely protective of its cubs. You can also be playful, strong and regal and you have pride, not without reason!
Just like that big pussycat, you're likely to be fiercely protective of your children, if you have them. Similarly you'll be proud and protective about anything that you've created, whether a character on stage, a book, a work of art, or a business project. You like to shine at anything you apply yourself to.
The call to parenthood sounds loudly in your creative and abundantly fertile sign, You're probably fantastic with children too. They reconnect you with the playful child who lives on within yourself.
Some may say that you have a stubborn streak, at times you do, but your way is steadfast and unchanging, it doesn't stop you being outgoing and fun-loving. You possess the ability to live life to the full, and you are able to do it with seemingly effortless flair and style!
You are most compatible with the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius, as you reflect light and warmth back to each other. You're also compatible with the air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, who have plenty of air to fan your flames.
You're less compatible with the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, as you may sometimes feel as if they dampen your fiery enthusiasm, as too many clouds can block the warmth of the sun. Similarly, you may find it a struggle to shine when you spend too much time in the company of the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
All the planets, like actors on a stage, play their part in making you the unique individual that you are. If you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to talk to you.
