Dec 22 - Jan 19
Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
While there is no danger of life becoming all work and no play, in terms of the big picture this is where the trend is going. This is a big month for both Saturn and Pluto in your work sector but also for Jupiter, in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. The fact that Saturn and Pluto have come to a standstill and Jupiter is speeding up means that the gap between them is literally closing by the day. On 3rd December, two months after Pluto's direct turn on 3rd October, Jupiter will join him and Saturn for the first time in your work sector in our lifetime. Because the tide is just now turning on the job front and both Saturn and Pluto are barely moving, while the lights have turned green there is no urgency. This gives you two months to find your feet before Jupiter returns to capitalise on everything you have been preparing for, for the last two years. This does however create urgency on the playful front and especially when it comes to matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. However, with Venus returning early next month and Mars keeping the playful and creative torch burning into the early months of 2020, it is still relatively easy to find a balance between work and play. In the meantime, the faster moving planets are dividing their time between a focus on communication and on home and family matters, as is always the case at this time of year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your communication sector, before turning the solar spotlight onto home and family matters. While Mercury and Venus will make that shift earlier in the month, not before starting the month with the planets of communication and love working together to ensure the communication lines are open.
Week beginning Monday 21st of October 2019
The closer we get to the end of October and the final two months of the year the more you can sense the change in the air. We are now just six weeks away from Jupiter, the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system leaving a playful part of your chart and returning to your busy work sector. Already the planets on the job front are looking to the future and there is a new sense of job confidence and anticipation emerging. However, before you get there, Jupiter is working to make his final weeks in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart count and from later next week he will have Venus, the planet of love to help him out. In the meantime, the Moon will make a timely return to Leo midweek. As well as bringing a chance to check in, listen to your inner voice and your intuition, instincts and imagination, the Moon will make some important aspects. One of the most important will be a friendly aspect to Jupiter, giving you an intuitive read on what your heart is telling you.
Wednesday 23rd of October 2019
The Moon's monthly visit to Leo is always a valuable chance to check in and not just personally. During the few days that the Moon is in Leo, it will form an aspect, either positive or challenging with every planet in the solar system and report back to you what it finds. This gives you a chance to listen to your inner voice and to get a feel for everything happening internally. The Moon does this once every four weeks but the difference this time is the exciting energies this is picking up on.
The fire in Leo's makes them enthusiastic, optimistic and energetic. They are generally happy, lucky, generous, kind and openhearted; they find it hard to believe ill of others. If injured, they strike back quickly, but they also forgive easily and never hold a grudge. Creative, out-going and self-assured, a Leo's charm can be almost impossible to resist. Though full of ambition and enthusiasm, Leo's have a lazy streak and will take the easy way out if the opportunity arises, especially if the situation offers little fun or glory.
Like the King of the jungle, Leo is the lion/lioness and considers himself/herself leader of the pack. They are fun -loving and love to play. They are ruled by the Sun and when the Sun finally goes in, boy can they sulk! Leo is a child like sign that thrives off attention and they are usually in their prime when they are centre stage. They can be a little boastful not to mention stubborn and because Leo is so good at leading and drama they bring humor and delight to your soul on a rainy day, even if they do seem outrageous! You can't help but adore their warm sunny rays of self expression. They can however, also be incredibly vain and can have a tendency to put themselves before others. They can also be family orientated and are incredibly hardworking once driven. When you have won the love of a Leo they will defend you to the earth but cross a Leo on a bad day and you'll experience a raging fire to say the least!
They are very creative and many are famous actors/actresses and singers, for example Madonna is a Leo
Leo is ruled by the fifth house which connects to creativity and relationships.
Leo's motto is "I Will"
Leos will not back down in an argument and they are more likely to be damaged by pride and ego than the emotions of a break up. However, they are very sensitive creatures and take themselves very seriously. Leos actually hate to be hated and they want you to adore them
Leo's birthstone is Peridot, and is thought to channel the energies of the Sun.
Vulnerable parts of the body are the back and the heart; as a result of this overexertion, heart mummers and various types of back pains are common complaints for the sign.
Leo's lucky colours are red, gold and royal blue.
Leo's are most compatible with other fire signs: Sagittarius and Aries and compatible to a lesser extent, air signs: Gemini and Libra and Aquarius.
