Ideas take you further

Luck is on your side

Welcome back romance, fun and passion

Mercury is in his ruling house in your chart so he’s your main focus for most of the week, Leo. Pay close attention to the details but your work or even your everyday routine may be set to change now. You could amaze others as well as yourself with your ability to come up with ideas now and this lead to a breakthrough in your work situation. Mercury meets Pluto in here on the 24th and also makes a fantastic angle to Jupiter with the possibility of a new job or enhanced security for you. Above all, you’re being asked to focus your thoughts and understand that where your attention or intention goes, energy flows. Ask what it is you want to be feeding? And try not to focus on the negative or obsess over things. There are opportunities around you now but these may involve you changing your mindset or even taking a chance in order to bring them to fruition. Again, are you willing to take a chance on your ideas?

Mars moves into your fabulous 5th this week, taking the pressure off your work and giving you the desire to express yourself through fun, pleasure, creativity or romance. A love affair that has been slow to start could suddenly ignite with Mars in here or your increased glow and aura of confidence has those romantic prospects queuing. You won’t wait for others to make the first move as you’ll initiate it. Your desire to mate and create increases. Above all, find an outlet where you can express yourself. You could set someone’s world on fire this week, Leo – or at the very least, light up your own.

· Change is an irresistible force

· Lay the foundation for your dreams

· Reclaim your power and roar!

Something is uncovered at the start of the month that demands action or change, Leo. Are you ready to see this for what it is? The full Moon in your 12th attunes you to the deeper dimensions of life. Your intuition proves to be your best guide so pay attention to what it is telling you. This full Moon triggers a Grand Water Trine to Neptune in your 8th and Mars in your 4th. You could end up feeling unsettled by someone’s actions or else astounded that you missed something. Digging deep, probing what is going on below the surface or even withdrawing for a while would be natural under this full Moon. But Mars in the mix says you have to take action in some way. Don’t procrastinate on this. Mars also says your first reaction is the correct one. So, don’t second-guess yourself. Do what feels right.

It’s your time to Work It, Leo. To determine your base, your home, your routine in a way that totally supports you. You now have Saturn very much in residence in your 6th of work and wellbeing. This month also sees angles made by the planets in this house (ruler the Sun until the 20th, Venus until the 18th and Mercury until the 31st), to Jupiter and Mars in your 4th. Plus 6th house planets will impact on Uranus now direct once again in your 9th and Neptune in your 8th. Changes lie ahead and some of you could be looking at starting a new job in 2018 or moving to a new home. People you live with – be they family, partners or even roommates may be involved in this. You may see changing faces as well as changing rooms or changing offices. Do you feel supported and sustained? If not, what needs to happen in order for you to feel this? Often this can simply boil down to us making minor changes but which have a big impact on us overall. As your 6th rules health and wellbeing, you also need to look at your diet. Does it support your body? There is more than one kind of nourishment of course. Exploring the mind/body/spirit connection is another area you may be drawn in to now. If you don’t feel your best, how can you enjoy the good things life has to offer?

The new Moon in your 6th on the 17th marks a release on some level and the start of a new beginning. You want to commit, get serious about something, prove yourself. You’re bringing your focus on to getting the job done – whatever that entails. If you have no job or want to change jobs, then this is the time to look around. As Mary J Blige would say: Work

what you got. Look to your talents and skills and see where you can utilise them or even market yourself better.

As the Sun and other planets head into your house of relating, you’ll feel a shift in energy from these in more ways than one. Venus is the first to arrive on the 18th and she rules this house in your chart. It’s now not just about work but about you and at least one other. Your significant one, someone you work with or a close friend. No one significant to call your own? Mars exits your 4th and enters your 5th from the 26th, heating up your interactions, adding spice to that flirtation and infusing you with a carefree, confident sexiness. Now you have even more to work with.

Since August last year, Leo’s especially have been under the shadow of the eclipse that took place then. Although it has been over for many months, what tends to happen it that the energy remains and continues to impact on us. Solar eclipses cover up and what we tend to see happen in between one eclipse and the next, is things coming to light. Look at what has been revealed to you. Think of an eclipse like a bracket in a sentence. You open the bracket and then close it again. The eclipse that follows is the closing bracket, bringing that eclipse cycle to an end. The final day of the month sees the closing bracket from the August eclipse appear. This is a total Lunar eclipse in your 1st house. This eclipse occurs on a blue Moon – the second full Moon in a month. And being a total eclipse it is a red or blood Moon. What makes this rarer still is the fact the eclipse occurs conjunct the dwarf planet Ceres. We’ve only recently embraced the importance of Ceres in astrology and the fact she is entangled in this eclipse, closing the bracket for you in your 1st, is highly charged and significant. Ceres often indicates giving something up or compromising. In this instance, when it comes to what was ‘covered up’ and then revealed in the last eclipse, this eclipse may see you reclaiming something from this event. You could be walking away with something you have gained or reaped. Or else something is restored. Even if it turns out to be your Leo pride and ability to roar once more.

In a nutshell: Reclaim the shine, your ability to roar, your passion and your dance with life. That’s what 2018 offers you. Prepare your Launchpad and aim for the stars.

annual horoscope

Leo 2018 

2018 is a year which promises many radical changes. One word of caution though, your ruler the Sun makes quite a few oppositions this year, so he is having trouble asserting himself. Much of your focus is going to be on your career and changing your lifestyle, and this change is likely to be a radical one. Saturn has already sauntered into your health and wellbeing/work zone and joins Pluto who already has a few plans up his sleeve. If you need a work change (or even if you feel you don’t), a development is coming. Uranus is fuelling the fire by entering your 10th house of career bringing in both opportunity and surprises and perhaps even a complete change of direction.

There’s also an overhaul of your body and health habits, as you hone your energy for the journey ahead. All of this power comes to a peak in March when fiery Mars also enters your 6th of work and health and wellbeing. Having felt overwhelmed and perhaps under-powered, you shift gears and can push through your ideas and energetically transform your lifestyle.

Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, is in your home and family zone until November so this is a fabulous time to move, deal with property, or heal family rifts. Your home, living arrangements or just your space should have expanded or you will have benefitted from your home in some way. Some of you may have used your home to generate extra income such as becoming an Airbnb host. Others could have extended or upgraded their home or moved to a better one – larger or in a better neighbourhood. Relocations are favoured and that includes long distance ones. To another part of the country or even to another country entirely for some. Long terms moves of one kind or another can be made or benefits come to you via family or property. There’s no place like home with Jupiter in here.

On the 27th June, your ruler the Sun, opposes serious Saturn who urges you to be practical. A situation might cause you to question your spiritual beliefs or to doubt your intuition and close connections. All of the things that are happening are facilitating a vast shift. You are completing a cycle now with a rebirth ahead.  A series of powerful eclipses are about to pave the way for this.  Unlike last year, there are no total solar eclipses this year. However, even a partial eclipse of your ruler will pack a powerful punch. Remember, eclipses cover up then reveal. The eclipse at the time of the new Moon on July 13 occurs in your 12th so this is ultra-mysterious. What is nudging your subconscious? Pay close attention as this is pointing you towards what form the shift will take. The second eclipse follows in your partnership sector on July 27. This is a lunar eclipse and it’s all about relating. The message here is of course, none of us are islands. If you are in the process of a rebirth (which you are), it therefore follows that your closest connections will be re-examined too. Not just with regards to your needs within them but what is being reflected back at you. This may take some time to emerge so don’t hurry the process. The soul refinement continues up to the point of the August New Moon in your sign which marks the next eclipse. There’s a chance now for you to reboot your soul’s journey, it’s a clean slate and fresh start. For you and perhaps for a key connection. Again, wait and see.

Be very cautious my feline friend, around money transactions on the 7th September, make sure you’re not hoodwinked into lending someone money or investing in a dodgy scheme. It might be that you have a fantastic idea connected to your spiritual path, BUT make sure you triple check the figures and seek advice regarding a business plan to make sure it’s legit, as the Sun opposes illusionary Neptune on the 7th September. Get rich quick scheme? Bear in mind with Saturn in your 6th there is no such thing for you at the moment. It’s all about regular and sustained effort which pays off for you. Keep this in mind when looking at any opportunities. They are around you, yes. But they require attention to detail and honing your craft to pay off now.

After all this hard challenge, you deserve a break, and thankfully Jupiter is going to give you one as he moves into your pleasure zone on the 8th November. Oh, yeah! Jupiter in here marks the start of what is a year long stay in the spotlight so let’s get this party started! Jupiter wants you to learn, grow and expand your capacity for joy, happiness, creativity, soul connections and children. When the Sun conjuncts Jupiter on the 26th of November you could have the time of your life! All the hard graft of 2018 is going to pay off and if you’ve put your all into it, a massive reward is coming your way. Jupiter in here is all about being willing to take a chance. Luck is on your side. By that I don’t mean taking an unnecessary risk (re-read my comments above about get-rich-quick schemes and investments) but taking a chance on your talents, skills or a job opportunity or to just branch out in a new direction is likely to pay off. Travel is likely now – especially the long distance variety and people from overseas or doing business with them will bring benefits. Romance could sweep you off on a journey you will never forget. It’s a time where events make your heart beat faster. Be prepared for breath-taking things. If you find yourself in the spotlight this year, which is likely, then allow others on your journey to share it with you. Chances are you did not arrive there all by yourself. If you share it, the lasting benefit of this cycle will be the people who will form part of your Dream Team and will be there with you and for you for a very long time to come.  

This year could offer the fresh start you have been waiting for Leo, where you redefine yourself, your talents and your capacity for love. So leap into 2018 and let the world hear you roar!
