When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Okay, so the Moon won’t be in your 7th house as the Now Age of Aquarius begins. That privilege is reserved for Capricorns. Plus, Jupiter won’t align with Mars but all the planets in your 5th house this month, including your ruler the Sun, will. Jupiter will however, meet Saturn in your 7th of lasting love, marriage and partnerships, dynamic duos and double acts of all descriptions. Love will steer your future, Leo. As from December 21, the Now Age of Aquarius is cosmically underway.
First, we are in mutable weather with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Juno in Sagittarius. Neptune and Ceres in Pisces. Plus, the North Node in Gemini and Vesta in Virgo. And mutable eclipse weather too with a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 14th. The day when Mercury will oppose the North Node in Gemini. This is a karmic eclipse for many and will take us back to 2002 – or even further in 19-year cycles.
This is extreme ‘mutable’ weather and ‘mutable’ means changing. So, what emerges or what you hear under this eclipse is going to change. You of all signs should know eclipses conceal or cover-up. When we have a total eclipse the cover-up is just that. We are totally in the dark about something. This applies to all of us no matter what our sign if the eclipse hits our chart factors. But it applies especially to you, Leo when it is a solar eclipse as the Sun is your ruler. So, it’s you who are plunged into darkness and simply cannot see. This is why total solar eclipses can seem so personal.
Where’s the love cover-up?
First, check your chart for any factors at 23 degrees. Especially in your own sign but also in any of the mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo and Pisces as well as Sagittarius. If you are unsure then one of our knowledgeable astrologers can help you. If you have chart factors at 23 degrees of ANY sign, then this eclipse will impact you in a personal way on some level. Even if this involves events at a distance.
Your 5th house contains all things Leo-ruled and with which you are familiar. But bigger, brighter and more supersized. So, think of your life as a theatre or film set for a moment. Imagine every detail – the audience, the ambiance, the lights, the actors, the stage hands or crew, the scents, the lights, the glamour, the costumes, the action and then – someone pulls the plug and plunges the whole show into darkness. And not in a stage-managed, story-driven way either.
It’s not so much as ‘On with the show’ as ‘When will the show go on and if it does, what’s the story about anyway?’. On a global level we can say Covid has performed the same snafu with our lives. So, where is the cover up and what’s the story, Leo? Were you centre stage when the lights went off and not only can you not see the audience, but they can’t see you either? An eclipse in here can have that effect. You’ve gone from on-show to invisible. That lover ghosts you. You wonder what you did wrong. You’re passed over for promotion at work or don’t get that job. Nobody comments on that artwork you posted to social media. Isn’t it any good? Your children don’t seem to be listening. Are you talking to yourself here?
As with all eclipses, the truth will emerge – over time. As will you if the world seems to be passing you by or ignoring you. However, please take things slowly if a potential lover crosses your path now. They may not be all they appear. A hidden history or perhaps not as ‘separated’ as they make out. Steer clear of travel plans even if restrictions ease. Guard your creative ideas – they could be stolen. And when it comes to your children if you have them, if you get a ‘gut’ feeling, you need to probe deeper. Also, if you do not want to be a parent at this time, take precautions. What’s hidden in eclipses takes time to emerge, so ensure the surprise won’t appear in 9 months’ time unless this is something you want.
You have all the time in the world for love now
Yes, you can afford to take all the time you need when it comes to love. Whether this is the return of a past lover or a new one. Let’s talk time for love but first, let’s put that hard yards cycle which began at the end of 2017 and has lasted into 2020 into perspective and finally behind you, Leo.
The many details that make up wellbeing
Your day job whether paid or unpaid, your routine, your habits – good and not so. What you fuel that body with and what you do with it. Couch potato princess or prince or workout god/ddess? Pets if you have them. How you map out your day. Your responsibilities and to return to the theatre metaphor of earlier, yes, the backstage stuff that makes you happen. Your 6th house rules all of this. You don’t get the big production happening unless you take care of the details. And that ‘heavy’ planetary weather in your 6th has had you looking at all of this. Especially what affects your energy and ability to shine.
Taking care of the daily business of simply being alive may sometimes have seemed daunting. Work may have been harder. Routines could have turned into ruts. You may even have sought escape at times. And this could have ranged from yoga or exercise on one hand to binge watching and comfort eating on the other. Hopefully however, what has emerged from this is a healthier, streamlined lifestyle. Even if again, this has taken a lot of work, organisation and focus.
This began at the end of 2017 when Saturn arrived in your 6th. And peaked in 2020 when we had the life-changing conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres in Capricorn in January. Since then, you’ve been asked to get serious about the changes you need to make. To form new and better habits. Jupiter’s entrance in here was tempered by the presence of Saturn. But Jupiter always wants to expand our experience. So, some of you may have found a new job which you work rather than it working you. Or discovered the lasting, feel-good results of a new fitness routine.
What money can’t buy
Many of us are now emerging from this cycle with a new perspective on what really matters. This has also been due to Uranus’s presence in your 10th of recognition and status. It’s fine to have ambitions and want to achieve. You are the sign designed to stand out after all. But not at the cost of your relationships, time or wellbeing. Uranus has had you looking at the price of success. And possibly you are still in the process of designing the perfect work/life balance. But you now know what you will give to succeed – and where the cost is simply too high.
On December 17, Saturn finally leaves your 6th. Not to return for another 29 years! You should feel the change in the air almost immediately. Especially when Jupiter follows two days later. The 21st also brings us one of the most powerful solstice events of the decade. This day sees you ruler arrive in your 6th. But this is also the day when Jupiter and Saturn meet in your 7th at zero degrees of Aquarius. And marks what will be the ‘official’ start of the Now Age.
Check your chart again for any aspects at zero degrees of any sign. This includes your ascendant or rising sign, descendant, IC or midheaven as well as your North Node. Again, if you need more insight, one of our astrologers can help you.
At some point during their transit through your 7th, both Jupiter and Saturn will oppose your Leo Sun and any other planets you have in your sign. So, think serious love commitments now and ‘putting a ring on it’ which is what Saturn symbolises. Jupiter always wants us to expand, love long and prosper to preface the Vulcan saying. So, if you are a single Leo, Jupiter’s journey through here in the Now Age should bring you at least one serious potential candidate for your heart.
Remember however, you need to be serious about what you want. And not shy about what you are seeking. Be upfront as if you were on stage and playing to that audience of potential lovers! It’s simple. If you are seeking something lasting, be honest and don’t waste time on someone who tells you they want to keep it casual. No matter how glowing and adorable you are, you are not going to change their minds. Thank them and move on.
For settleds, Jupiter and Saturn in here can cement that union or see you take an existing one to the next level. Just be aware however, that while you can become closer within Saturn’s rings and Jupiter’s generosity, this isn’t a Band-Aid that will fix a broken union. Saturn rules time. And sometimes being serious means taking that serious decision to part. What I will say is that Jupiter’s presence should make is easier to consciously un-couple now. And when you have done, may send someone new your way.
Finding someone new whether single or newly so could be linked to who you know, joining in something (even at a social distance), groups, clubs, associations or simply you focussing on friendship and enjoying yourself and being open to who you encounter.
Any remaining eclipse mysteries may begin to be cleared up at the month’s end. Ahead of hopefully a loved-up 2021 for you, we have a full Moon in your psychic 12th on the 30th. Plus, New Years’ Eve sees Venus in your 5th oppose the North Node. This could activate your intuition as you tune in accurately to what 2021 has in store. Or else it may point you towards shining a light on that eclipse mystery. Either way, back into the light is where you’re headed for the Now Age, Leo.
In a nutshell: What’s the big secret around love, Leo? Is it a new one waiting in the wings? One thing is certain, the start of the Now Age of Aquarius this month is going to link you to a new kind of love experience. And it could be linked to who you know.
