22 Jul 2018 VENUS SEXTILE JUPITER (2nd House to 4th House)

22 Jul 2018 SUN ENTERING LEO (1st House)

Are you keeping your promises – to yourself?

Get the gift that keeps on giving

Happy birthday, Leo!

The Sun’s entry into your 1st marks the start of your birthday season and this year this could come with some gifts that last way past your actual birthday. But first before we get to the present unwrapping bit let’s look at how your ruler’s arrival in your sign is going to be all about how you want the world to see you in the coming year. How do you feel about you right now? Ready to roar? To purr? Anything else just won’t do. The start of our birthday season is always the perfect time to look at whether we are being true to ourselves – or not. Look back over the past 12 months and see whether you have kept your promises to yourself and been your own best friend. Or have you sold yourself out in some way either to keep someone else happy or because peer pressure (or the media) has made you feel you’re not ‘good enough’ the way you are. Make this your time where you say ‘No more broken promises – between me and my true self’. See this as your new year’s resolution because our personal new year always begins with our solar return. Never mind what the calendar tells us!

Now, those gifts that could just keep on giving for you Leo. Unwrap a surprising angle between Venus in her ruling 2nd in your chart and Jupiter in your 4th of home, family and security on the same say as the Sun arrives in your sign. No matter how you have decided to live your truth in the coming year you need a base, security and yes, financial backing to live it. This alignment speaks of that and of you being given something to build on – most likely via improvements in your money situation which could come in the form of a new or second income or even through property dealings or investments. It could keep on showing returns for the rest of the year or see you in a position where you can plan for the future with confidence. Unwrap your gifts this week, Leo.


monthly horoscope

Trust your intuition

Be sincerely yourself for success

Happy birthday, Leo!

The big run-up to your birthday has you pondering something or probing beneath the surface for answers. This may or may not involve a partner or someone close to you. You can feel the potential of the coming year swirling around you. You may be asking yourself questions around how you want it to unfold and what you want to achieve during the next 12 months. But before you get there, you’re very much aware that there is stuff that needs to be dealt with first. The first three weeks of the month are going to be very much focused on doing just that.

Ruler the Sun is in your 12th house and illuminating those hidden strengths of yours you may not be tapping into. This is also a time of enhanced psychic ability, creativity and intuition. You will be increasingly sensitive and able to tune in to others. As this happens, please pay attention to the information you are channeling. Whatever you do – don’t ignore it. Think of this as not just your sixth sense but a tangible advantage you have over others now – on the highest level. As this month progresses, your ‘gut’ feelings will be proved correct again and again which is why you should ignore them at your peril. The phrase ‘The truth is out there’ really applies to you now and you may have to harness that inner psychic detective to uncover it or discover what it is you need to know.

Chances are as July begins you have a strong inner sense that something is coming or about to change. Your higher self may also be nudging you to take steps in one particular direction so please, go along with that. This is your house of soul exploration and hidden potential. What holds us back – anything from that negative self-talk to that person who subtly undermines us is ruled by our 12th as this is the house of hidden enemies. This is why I am telling you not to ignore your intuition. Focus your energy in a positive fashion but don’t ignore anything your intuition is telling you simply because you don’t want to face it.

Along with the Cancerians next door, you are the sign most personally affected by eclipses as of course, they always involve your rulers. When the Sun is obscured by the Moon as in a solar eclipse, we can say you are quite literally ‘in the dark’ about something. And this applies 12-fold when the eclipse occurs in your 12th house. Eclipses always conceal yet ‘Where there is darkness there is light’. The eclipse of the 13th sees the Sun oppose Pluto and trine Neptune – the planet which rules your 12th. This could have you searching for the truth around something – and do remember that this will eventually be revealed as the shadow of the eclipse moves off. A major transformation will follow either in your relationship with someone else as ‘true colours’ are revealed or else you breaking free from a long term pattern that has held you back – perhaps without you knowing it. The truth will set you free.

Venus moves from your 1st into her ruling 2nd from the 10th and will make a success-inducing move to Uranus newly arrived in your career sector on the 12th. With Jupiter direct in your 4th of home and security from the 10th also, now is the time to make those career moves, that pitch, application or ask for that promotion or raise. Try to schedule anything to do with work or money matters and to get contracts and agreements signed before the 26th when Mercury retrogrades in your 1st. This retrograde cycle which will last almost up until the end of your birthday period as it ends on August 19,  will have you going back and reviewing those questions on how you want the coming year to unfold and looking at who or what comes with you depending on what is being revealed to you during the post-eclipse period.

The Sun arrives in your 1st on the 22nd and you’ll not only be in the mood to celebrate but now on the cusp of wanting to create or start something new. It’s time to be yourself now and also open and honest about those dreams and desires for the next 12 months. Leap into optimism and also that star quality your sign is known for. Radiate. Glow. By now you should have done most of your deep thinking. Now is the time to start to live the dream. You have stepped into your maximum time of attraction and what we attract pivots around what we radiate and project. Project openness, authenticity and sincerity now and that is what you will get back from others. If you are still filled with uncertainty and have ignored that inner voice, you will see the same reflected back at you in others’ attitudes.

We have one more eclipse occurring this month and this one is a total lunar eclipse in your partnership sector. Ruler the Sun will also oppose retrograde Mars in here the same day. Plus two days later the Sun meets the North Node in your 1st. Past, present or future partners may feature. Above all, understand the key issue here is sincerity. Yours or another’s. Being true to how we feel and who we are and expressing that. Do you doubt someone’s integrity and feel they may not be being honest? Remember, listen to that intuition and wait for what the eclipse will reveal. Fate is at work with this occurring within such a close opposition to that North Node. That new beginning you got goose-bumps over is about to emerge. If you truly and sincerely are ready to accept it.

In a nutshell: Your birthday season has a special present for you this year, Leo. And that is the gift of being able to be sincerely and utterly you. Watch how others reflect this What’s not to love? back at you!

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!
