January 2020

Because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your work sector, it is a given that January will be a busy month. Whether at work or with the many other things that keep you busy and occupy your time, this is an area of your chart that will always find something for idle hands to do. What is not the norm is to begin the year with six planets in your work sector and especially when half of them are not only the most powerful planets in the solar system but will be here for most if not all of 2020. This should and does get the year off to a busy start but at the same time can ease some of the urgency. Yes, you have Mercury leaving your work sector on 17th January and the Sun on 21st January, the point when the busy start each year gets off to will often end, but with so many planets remaining you are running a marathon and not a sprint this year. This makes it easier to pace yourself. There are also some guardrails in place to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play and with Uranus turning direct in your career sector on 11th January it is just as well. At first it will be hard to see those guardrails, mainly because they aren't there yet. There are actually two guardrails and they will work in tandem. The first is Mars' return to a playful part of your chart on 3rd January, where he will spend nearly seven weeks. This is long enough to set some work/life balance habits that you can maintain for the rest of the year. In the meantime, while the lunar nodes are working to maintain a balance between knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off, it is a lunar eclipse on 10th/11th January that will put this to the test. This is just as Saturn and Pluto are moving into a rare alignment in your work sector and right in the heart of the busiest point of this busy month. You can have it all but only with the right balance, especially as this is also an important month on the relationship front.


Week beginning Monday 20th of January 2020

It is not that the Moon will divide the majority of its time this week between focusing on matters of the heart, work and job matters and your relationships and more that this will amplify what is already the main areas of focus. The Moon not only joins Mars in a playful part of your chart on Monday but during the Sun's final 24 hours in your busy work sector. If that means having to juggle to find the right balance between work and play then this is not just an issue for Monday. For while the Sun will leave your work sector on Tuesday this will still leave four planets here, three of which are some of the most powerful planets in the solar system. Even when the Moon leaves a playful part of your chart and returns to your work sector on Wednesday Mars will stay on, continuing the balancing act between work and play. Meanwhile, the Sun, Moon and Mercury will all meet up in your relationship sector over the weekend, to create the first New Moon of 2020.


Thursday 23rd of January 2020

There is an interesting set of dynamics in play today, that collectively speaks to a need for balance. On the one hand, the Moon's alignment with lucky Jupiter in your work sector is giving you your first real sense of just how much potential there is for job growth and expansion, despite the fact that the Sun left two days ago. Yet at the same time that the Sun now has the focus on your relationships, the playful lunar vibes of the last few days have Mars fired up, ready to fight to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.

About Leo

Information about your birth sign


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.
