Love what you have? Commit to it

Is it time for a lifestyle upgrade?

Focus on what you have created close to home with Venus now in your 4th. Your family, your roots, what supports and sustains you. Are you growing in fertile ground? Ahead of the new year cycle, do look at whether your living arrangements or lifestyle in general nurtures your growth. Or have you simply outgrown it? This goes for your path as well. Do you need a transplant into more fertile ground?

This doesn’t detract from all you have grown and created for yourself and those you care about. This is a good week for you to be in nature – yes, even in winter if you are resident in the Northern Hemisphere. A walk in the park on a chilly day can ground you and bring clarity if you are weighing up choices.

Change is in the air with Saturn and now Neptune direct in your 8th. Even a decision to make where you are more of a home is a change. Others however may be looking at that move or relocation. The word ‘protection’ may be important for you this week. Not just in the protection that four walls and a roof offer you but a job that offers stability and protection from the harsh economic realities we are living through.

You will be looking at what’s stable and what isn’t. And vowing to do something about the latter. Bonuses, benefits and fresh opportunities begin to appear as Mercury in its ruling 6th trines Jupiter in your 10th (8th) followed by a superb alignment between Venus and Jupiter (10th). Although in opposition we say what this transit attracts can be nothing but something good, beneficial and open-handed. It can consolidate our present position or offer the opening to a new one. Money or other resources open up. Or you just take a deeper drive into gratitude for all you already have.

In a nutshell: You’ll be looking closely at what sustains and supports you. Where you go when the north wind blows in other words. Is it time to send those roots deeper or pull them up to transplant them in more fertile ground? Get ready for homecoming decisions, Leo.

The final month of 2023 provides the pivot point for all of us to realign to something more satisfying for the New Year. As well as your December forecast you can unpack more treats as the month unfolds. Including your yearly 2024 forecast, your Moonscopes and also discover what Pluto in Aquarius means for your sign!

Right up until the 22nd, your ruler the Sun puts you in the spotlight in its ruling 5th in your chart. What lies ahead for ‘24, Leo? Goals and wishes turned into reality. Are you ready? December is your beta-test period where you can try on anything from that dream to superstardom. It’s a dress rehearsal. Which in many respects can sometimes be better than opening night as you can take your time with the costume changes. And perfect your role as you go!

Time to act like the superstar you are. No matter where you are or what dramas others are creating around you. The fly in the mince pie this month could turn out to be Mercury heading retrograde in your work sector from the 13th. Somehow others may be trying to make Much Ado About Nothing in the countdown to the holidays. Do watch the 17th when someone may simply be trying to get attention by trying a drama on for size. And bigging up their role in the process. Keep your cool and allow your intuition to see past the obvious.

December sees you wanting to make your home a place to hold your heart. And there’s also a desire to recapture the child-like wonder of the holidays you used to experience. If you now have children of your own or they form part of your extended family, you’ll go out of your way to make this time as magical as you can for them. You know, sometimes we engage in this to re-parent ourselves or heal our inner child. And there’s nothing wrong with that, Leo. Indulge yourself and the youthful, hopeful spirit that still lives within you. Make it a time for the young and the young at heart.

Despite Mercury backwards in a ruling house, you are awakened to so much potential and possibilities this month. It’s not just finding yourself centre stage or at the nexus of attention and attraction. Beginning with the new Moon in your 5th on the 12th. This draws to the surface a love or an unspoken desire of yours. And also shows you the way ahead to pursue it. And yes, you can indulge yourself (within reason) too.

Your creativity or desire to shine needs to find its expression on the 28th when retro Mercury encounters Mars in your 5th. If you feel stunted, shut down or overlooked in some way, this could result in blow-ups. If that lover makes you feel you are an understudy and not the lead in their life, you are unlikely to take this well. However, this can be a day where you decide to promote yourself or showcase yourself in a more determined and show-stopping way. And no longer take any notice of the critics out there. Unleash your fire and if anyone can’t stand the heat – that’s not your problem.

Party season is in full swing until the 22nd. And we know nobody does this better, Leo. You’re at your most magnetic and also your most giving. Pursue what you love to do as when you do, you simply shine all the brighter. You are going to get an extra long pleasure cycle this year due to Venus entering this house on the 29th. Extending your ability to plunge headlong into hedonism. And to attract who or what you need.

You do need to watch your finances with Mercury back and forth. But past efforts could bring you those much anticipated rewards. Mercury will make not one but three trines to Jupiter in your 10th. The first two on the 8th and 18th. The third will occur next month when both Mercury and Jupiter are direct once again. You also have a superb alignment on the 27th – the day of the full Moon in your 12th, when your ruler the Sun aligns to Jupiter. There’s a feeling of satisfaction, sharing and also that your needs as well as your wants are being met. Or that you are able to meet those of the people you care about. These dates can hand you that emotionally rich feeling. With actual material benefits and bonuses for others.

The 8th and 18th are therefore two of the best days to get that holiday shopping done. Do attempt to finalise those purchases by the 23rd when Mercury returns to your 5th. And please set a budget and don’t exceed it.

With Mercury retrograde and back in your 5th and Jupiter retrograde in your 10th until the 31st, you do need to apply those retro rules to travel. Your 5th is your house of holidays and Mercury can bring up anything and everything from strikes to outages, storms to cancellations and breakdowns. Do double check and confirm everything before departure.

Clarity is your gift as well as you being on the receiving end of love, attention and pleasure. The Sun in your 6th hands you refinement of plans and a certainty around what you see yourself doing in the new year. The 25th brings a point of illumination thanks to an alignment between Venus in your 4th and Neptune in your 8th. Suddenly you see that changing something isn’t difficult after all. And the answer or what you need to make this happen is in your hands.

You may not wield this power or set it in motion until the new year however. For now, you’re quite content to be in the moment. Satisfaction comes from knowing you can when you are ready. The ultimate gift in itself. And the full Moon in your 12th (27th) emphasises this. This occurs the same day as the Sun’s trine to Jupiter. Clearly pointing the way ahead for you.

You gather your resources, prepare to make your best impression on someone and now leap frog over pitfalls that have tripped you up in the past. If there is anything remaining that is holding you back, you will consciously release it. Especially around the 28th when Mercury and Mars fuse in your 5th. Despite the passion which fuels, you, you’re all business now. And that business is making the most of all you have and who you are.

2024 sees Pluto re-enter your 7th. It moves to a final degree of your 6th on the 20th. This can bring final and sweeping changes to your work, studies, routine or wellbeing in the next month. You’re entering the new year very much aware of how you come across to others. Be it in person or via that app. But when it comes to the impression they make on you – you are looking below the surface. Sure, someone can impress with their designer labels or their track record. But you need to know this is backed up by the integrity that only inner values bring. So that lover can’t seduce on looks alone, Leo. And you may sparkle, but there’s so much more to you than that. However, stars are meant to shine and ensure you’re the brightest this December.

In a nutshell: Ruler the Sun remains in your attraction zone until the 22nd. But Venus’s arrival in here extends your season of joy until 2024. You’re being set up for a cycle of transformative relationships dynamics and wish fulfilments, Leo!

Leo 2023

2023 is going to be all about the power of love, Leo. This is the beginning of a long term cycle where love is the transforming element in your life. But you have to go deeper and look at where you allow issues around control to creep in. Where you need to remain aware of giving away your power and how this differs from compromise. And when you need to set some boundaries. That’s the power of love and hear it roar!

2023 begins with Venus in its ruling 7th and your ruler enters this house on January 20. A secret superpower of love new supermoon in here on the 21st signifies you are on the cusp of a brand new partnership experience. Look to who is highlighted or what kind of double act moves into focus for you at the time of the all-important full Moon in your sign on February 5.

And this is just the beginning. For the past 2.5 years you have had Saturn in this house. Saturn’s rings symbolise boundaries – as in ‘put a ring on it’. But they also restrict us when we have serious lessons to learn. It’s only when we have taken these on board, that Saturn lifts them. So, with this in mind, you should be entering ‘23 having graduated from Love University with a first class degree. Knowing what you want and need in relationships is the first step to getting this. Whether from an existing partner or a new one. And taking this seriously.

You should be heading into your new cycle confident in all you have to offer as part of a double act – be it a long term love or marriage, or working relationship. This is turn should see you holding out for that person you know is the right fit. And not being lured into anything that doesn’t. This will be be your key to getting to that transformative love as we move into the roaring twenties for you.

You don’t need money, don’t take fame, Don’t need no credit card to ride this train

No time wasters. And no trying to change someone’s mind, Leo. And that is a two-way street as Saturn moves out of here in March and on into your 8th and Pluto moves in on March 23. Pluto will remain in here until June 11 when it will return to your 6th. So, take it this is a taster session for what will be a longer, more profound experience which begins in ‘24.

Pluto in your 7th can bring you a rich, powerful, successful, charismatic partner. Especially as this transit is combined with the entrance of Jupiter in your 10th of status in May. And your 10th also rules your partner’s status as well as your career. The partnership dynamic could also involve you moving on up the career ladder and working with people who fit the above description.

Pluto energy needs to be kept clean. Which is why you need to keep Saturn’s lessons around boundaries in mind as well as your own commitment to no time wasters. As in not falling for anyone who is not completely free to be in the relationship. If this happens, you need to walk away and fast before you fall in too deep. Think ‘fallout’. Nuclear fallout takes decades if not centuries to clean up. And Pluto rules all things atomic.

So, yes, that attraction can feel like a nuclear meltdown. Intense, searing, out of control. But you need to stay committed to your clean love energy policy. No one is asking you to deny your feelings, Leo. But you can admit to having them but insist that you cannot follow through unless the other party is free to do so. If you do, you will find either they return having cleaned up their act or Pluto rewards you by sending you someone who is just as enticing, but available.

Other dark side of Pluto traps include you giving away your power in a relationship. If you are already in one where themes of coercive control, abuse, manipulation and domination are present, the good news for you is that Pluto’s arrival in here will transform that situation for you – for good. But in any relationship, do be aware of these themes. And also how to hold fast to your own power and again, walk away if you find yours is being subverted. The good stuff? Pluto brings the passion and also something enduring and lasting. It won’t fizzle out overnight, Leo. You just need to bring your power and surety and pure, pure shining heart.

Jupiter begins ‘23 in its ruling 9th in your chart. Long distance travel, overseas business, the law, higher learning, sports, the outdoors, the mass media, large animals especially horses, big loves and lucky breaks as well as solutions and opportunities are what Jupiter offers in here. By the time it moves on into your 10th, it may well have already opened that door to a new success cycle for you. And now you get to build on it.

A highly charged and unusual eclipse takes place in your 9th on April 20. This is a solar eclipse and what makes it unusual is it is a Hybrid one. This is the first one we have in fact seen in 159 years! All eclipses are important for you as one way or another, they involve your ruler the Sun. But a solar eclipse is the most powerful as this is a cover up involving your ruler.

A Hybrid eclipse is where we have all three eclipse types packaged within the one eclipse – total, annular and partial. What we see depends on where we are on the planet. So, our perspective in other words. Look again at the list I gave you for the themes of Jupiter in your 9th as these areas are where the cover up(s) are likely to be for you. And yes, there may be more than one, Leo.

If you are heading overseas, doing business with someone overseas, have fallen in love with someone overseas, are involved in a legal matter, a big contract or large purchase, are thinking of buying a horse or are even dealing with something to do with a church, religious order or belief system, do take it you are in the dark over it in more ways than one. Finding yourself overseas and caught up in a sudden political change, strike, weather incident, border closure or discovering once at your destination, things are not what they were made out to be are just some scenarios you could face. And no, if you are on that cruise ship, nobody is on watch for icebergs. If you can delay anything from that trip to that purchase, contract or I Do, you need to now.

Being seen as a force of nature in your own right, stepping into a leadership role or more responsibility, establishing something for your future, making your mark or cementing your reputation are all signatures of Jupiter in your 10th. As is signing important documents and papers. Jupiter is in Saturn’s house in your chart and Saturn is in Pluto’s now. Do think and make decisions in the long term, Leo. And again, don’t be afraid to hold your ground for what you really want. While Uranus still in its long term stay in here is all about doing it your way and being unafraid of taking a unique approach. Your inner entrepreneur, visionary and blue sky thinker allows you to blaze a trail. So, don’t be afraid to showcase this.

And with a little help from above, You feel the power of love

With Saturn now in your 8th you’ll also know if you are on the right path in terms of what you are doing with your life. You need to feel you are making a difference and on some level, adding something, Leo. Of course, this could just as easily be your side hustle or hobby you want to turn into your profession. And both Saturn and Jupiter will help with that. Saturn along with Neptune in your 8th sees you holding those boundaries but when real intimacy with another is on offer – you let them down.

Because your expectations go deeper when it comes to others, and with Pluto in Aquarius which rules friendships and Saturn in your house of soul unions, do be aware that because of this, some connections may no longer hold the resonance you once felt. People may leave your circle. Or you may make a conscious choice to exit. Existing friendships can be locked down for life and they as well as anyone new who you meet now, will have a big influence on the rest of this decade. Not just this year!

New beginnings arrive ahead of your birthday cycle this year and your passion is in full flow from late May thanks to Mars in your 1st. You yourself are serving scorching intensity and fierce confidence which may also match the energy of those you are mixing with. And attracting. However, Venus will make a rare retrograde in your sign from July 23 – same day as your ruler arrives kick-starting your real birthday cycle. As a result the new may be more about redelivery.

Second chances, missed opportunities return or come in a slightly different format. Other areas however may just feel stuck – money, work, love. What your birthday season is great for this year is to take that holiday, Leo. You may want to plan for this ahead of time.

Property decisions, your long term security, home, family, your roots, living arrangements and lifestyle choices as well as your long term path will benefit from both Ceres (new dawns, new deals), in your 4th from late September onwards. If you have plans to move, to upgrade your existing home, make money from your home or there is a family matter you need to take charge of, then you will receive an addition boost from Mars in here from mid-October onwards.

The year comes to a close with Pluto in your 6th but heading back towards your 7th where it will arrive in ‘24 for a longer stay. Mars leaves your 4th on November 24 joining the Sun in your fabulizing 5th and bringing the year to a scorching conclusion. Look back at how relationships have transformed and transformed you in the process. Still single? Knowing your power means you know you have the power to not only change that but also choose the right one. Or else be powerfully potent, sexy and happy continuing on your own until they turn up. 2024 will see you build on the success story which begins this year. Get ready for January when you will hit the ground running.
