Embrace a bigger vision

Blaze a trail

Rise and shine!

Take a chance this week, Leo. Your fierce, lion-hearted courage soars. If you’ve been chafing against restrictions or anything that dulls your golden glowing right to shine, this week could hand you opportunities or solutions which offer an escape route or simply restore that lustre!

See this as a journey. It could be an actual one or a metaphorical one. But learning or gaining a new perspective could form a large part of the process. As could simply being willing to take a chance and move out of that comfort zone, Leo. Think of that comfort zone as one where yes, you can stay safe or even recharge when needed. But also when you are in there you are in the shadows, the background and your inner light is dimmed.

Reignite the fire this week and use your smarts when it comes to maneuvering yourself out of the no glow zone. With retro Mercury backing into your 10th and Venus entering this house on the 28th, it’s important to be mindful of how you are coming across. Yes, you can make your own rules to a certain extent and bravely and boldly strike out onto your own path. Walk that fine line between being seen as a self-governed trailblazer and all out rebel. In other words, you can do it your way but work within the accepted way of doing things. That way you keep those who matter on your side and you don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!

Travel or dealing with people overseas may also feature. Just keep those retro rules in mind. Above all, this week asks you step into new, unexplored territory with your soul aglow and your heart beating with confidence as Mars and Jupiter meet in Jupiter’s ruling 9th on the 29th. If you stick with what’s familiar you may miss that chance to shine in your own right. The universe wants to hand you a bigger experience this week. One that could get you noticed or see a much needed solution on offer. Just say ‘Yes’, Leo.

In a nutshell: Ready to step into a larger experience? Or blaze a trail towards something bigger and more breathtaking? An opportunity to strike out in a fresh direction could put you firmly on someone’s radar now, Leo. Take it if offered.

Set your compass for a new direction

Big up those dreams

Get ready for expansion, freedom and opportunity!

Surprise developments around your work, career or public image could see you in the spotlight in some way during the start of May, Leo. Optimism, luck, expansion, travel and big loves beckon as Venus enters your 9th on the 2nd. This is but a taster of what’s to come, Leo. Ruler the Sun meets Uranus on the 5th in your on show 10th house. The Sun will move on to meet the North Node also in here on the 13th which could open up a new cycle of achievement and recognition for you. If you’ve done the work – expect the rewards now. Or the ability to begin in an exciting fresh direction.

There’s also freedom on offer in a way it hasn’t been for 12 years this month. But the key to making the most of this is to remain mindful of your reputation at all times. Walk the royal walk and above all, talk the talk. No matter where you go or in whose company you find yourself- act like you belong, Leo. Because you do. This May is all about making self-doubt a thing of the past and embracing the truth that You Rule.

That royal career progress to date can now be leveraged if needed. It’s important over the next few weeks to take the time to look at your path, purpose and achievements to date. Even has you head towards something so much more expansive and uplifting. The 10th brings you two key events. Mercury will retrograde in your 11th and then on the 23rd, return to your 10th giving you plenty of opportunity to reassess your goals and re-purpose that path if needed for even bigger achievements.

However, this pales into insignificance next to what is the biggest astral event of the month – if not the year for you, Leo. The 10th also sees Jupiter return to its ruling 9th house in your chart for the first time in 12 years. The world is your oyster when it comes to travel, doing business in a big way, exploration, learning, freedom, solutions and opportunity!

Where do you want to go? What do you yearn to have or experience? Jupiter in here tells you its time to think big and to prepare to venture away from what you know into that place where the magic happens. Changes may occur to make way for this. Either self-initiated or organically especially across the 16-18th when you have a total lunar eclipse in your 4th (16th) and a Mars/Neptune meeting in your 8th on the 18th. I will have more to say on this in a moment.

Jupiter in its ruling house is at its most optimistic and generous. You will be feeling you can take on the world and that those big dreams are not so impossible after all. Travel especially the long distance kind, should feature between now and October and again at the start of ‘23. Even if you don’t go far, the world may seek you out. This could also be linked to learning, study or expanding your knowledge of the world on some level. The people you encounter now and the places you go open up your horizons. There’s also an opportunity to break free from a cycle by using this and the Mercury retro to apply all you have learned to your current situation and heading towards the different choice or destination.

Deep feelings emerge under this month’s full Moon in your 4th on the 16th.. This full Moon is known as the Flower or Blossom Moon. It brings with it a total lunar eclipse which combined with the Mercury retro-factor means we are in the dark in a key area. What we feel may not tally with the facts. This eclipse can be seen across a wide area of the globe. South America will have the best view and if you are there you will be able to see the entire event. Western Europe will see the whole of the total phase while a swathe of Africa from East to West, will see it leave.

Family values, living arrangements, your roots, security and also ownership of your own pathway or future are the areas where you need to probe any shadows. Feelings of insecurity need to be acknowledged, but don’t allow these to send you spiraling into a distinctly un-regal clinginess or feelings you have to resort to emotional manipulation to get your needs met. Instead take a heart-felt approach and ask directly or simply share what’s on your mind.

The shadows of an eclipse hang around usually two days before and afterwards. So please stay connected to that ‘gut’ feeling during this time. If you are faced with unexpected endings or events which push your buttons, don’t try to take refuge in denial or run away. Take it they have purpose you don’t yet know, gather that royal courage and face them head-on if they occur around the eclipse period which also brings that Mars/Neptune conjunction I mentioned earlier (18th).

Your ruler is now on the move into your future shaping 11th on the 21st. Just remember to keep those Mercury retro rules in mind as it does. In focus for you – friendship and goal revivals. Reach out to people you have not had contact with for some time. This includes those business and professional connections too. Look to your goals and check for continued relevance and also now you have a new appreciation of all you can offer, resources and new pathways to attain them.

Mercury lands back in your 10th on the 23rd while Mars powers into your 9th on the 24th. Now is the time to make those moves you may have been planning or thinking about for a while. Please if traveling now don’t rush. Venus enters your 10th turning you into the candidate or object of desire from the 28th. This is now a time to work what you have like a boss. Showcase everything from that sexiness to those smarts, Leo. This house does not just rule your professional status but your personal one too. The one that got away could even reappear now.

Second time around opportunities or the gateway to a bigger experience could be on offer on the 29th when Mars and Jupiter meet. This is asking you to accept or have the courage to step on through. Remember – you will never know unless you do. The 30th offers an opportunity to head firmly in the direction of that vision, dream or goal as the new Moon appears in your 11th. Have you been in this position before? Where you were offered the chance to attain something you desired or invited to enter a new circle? Did you hesitate, accept or refuse, Leo? No more prevarication. Take that leap and soar into the wide open horizon that awaits you.

In a nutshell: A ‘No limits’ cycle begins this month as Jupiter arrives in its ruling 9th in your chart, Leo. You’re about to venture out in a fresh direction that may involve unknown territory for you. One thing you do know however – that’s where the magic happens!

You rule in ‘22, Leo. It’s a year to experience something bigger. Big loves, big dreams and above all, big progress towards those goals. I like to think of it as Royal Progress. Don’t settle for anything less than what makes your heart burst with pride this year!

Get ready for Royal Progress, Leo! This year’s cycle is going to be more destiny driven than most. That doesn’t mean you are at the mercy of fate however. Just that you need to become more spiritually aware of what your choices and actions set in motion. And to step up and claim the results whether you like them or not. Rulership begins with self-rulership and ownership. It hands you that regal vibe for which your sign is known.

And here’s the good news. If you don’t like what your choices have brought you, provided you take a ‘Yeah, I did that’ attitude, you will be handed the opportunity to choose again and differently this year. 2022 promises to repurpose your life and release you from restriction provided you are willing to admit your lesson has been learned.

No more repeats in other words. And let’s start by talking about love replays. If love has well and truly run its course, Venus and Mercury both retrograde in your 6th when the year begins, sees you owning that too. Especially when this is combined with the North Node arriving in your 10th on January 19. The day before your ruler the Sun lands in your partnership zone. Saturn remains in your 7th this year so this is all about getting serious. Your 10th isn’t just about your career – although this will be important for you this year. But also about your relationship status. Single, settled, married, divorced. How your partner’s status reflects or influences your own.

As the North Node slides back into your 10th you’ll be looking at your choices to date, recommitting or releasing but being serious about all of this. As you will your search for someone if you are single. However, you do need to wait until at least February 1 -2 to to kick-start those love resolutions when your ruler is in your 7th and a new Moon marks the start of an important new partnership cycle. Juno’s entry into here on the 2nd adds that sense of potential commitment and long term love.

Your love potential increases throughout March thanks to the meeting between Venus and Mars in your 7th. All planets are direct in March which hands you a green light across all areas. Do be aware now with your sectors of change, status, sharing and partnerships all activated, that for love to last for you, you need a partner who you can take pride in on some level.

No, I’m not talking about someone as superficial as a trophy partner, Leo. Because you also understand that all that glitters isn’t gold better than any other sign. You need hidden treasures on the inside. To take pride in your partner’s moral compass say. Or their kindness, values, dedication, loyalty, talents and honesty. You can take as much pride in these if not more so than worldly success. Ensure when seeking someone new to share your throne with, they come with that all-important pride inducing factor. It will be strictly personal for each and every one of you what this is. But it must be there. If it is lost, this will be like a deep betrayal for you. Please always be aware of this if it is happiness you’re seeking.

Get ready for your first big point to release, a joint venture or a solution to something that has been restricting you for far too long. Wounds can be healed, forgiveness and self-empowerment replace self-blame and fear as Jupiter and Neptune meet in your 8th on April 12. Joint decisions can be made. Agreements reached. Negotiations concluded in your favour. Access to the resources you have long needed granted. This has not occurred for 165 years. It has the capacity to break you free of a long term cycle stretching back not just in this lifetimes but several others too. Know what you want to achieve now. And don’t be afraid to ask for it!

This year’s eclipse axis is across Taurus and Scorpio. Your 10th and 4th houses. Made all the more powerful by the fact the Nodes are also back in here. So, think of this as your time for laying the foundations for your future. With your focus on home, family, lifestyle, living arrangements and whatever gives you that sense of place – that castle of kingdom to rule, Leo! The most powerful eclipses for you personally will always be the solar ones. When your ruler is obscured by the Moon. Your feelings may override everything at these times but they may not be your best guides. Feelings are not facts.

There are three things in this universe which cannot remain hidden for long. The Sun, the Moon and the truth. This is the perfect eclipse metaphor and also the key to navigating those shadows of an eclipse. You best eclipse hack in other words. Because if you are in the dark, you then know whatever is hidden has to come out sooner or later.

The solar eclipse dates for you for ‘22 are April 30th – a partial solar eclipse at the time of the ‘Black’ new Moon in your 10th says you don’t yet have the big picture but you have a part of it. Try to delay long term decisions if you can and hang fire on career matters. Also, if you meet a potential partner at this time, ensure they are all they appear or claim to be and keep at the back of your mind what I said about needing to take pride in your significant other! Allow plenty of time for the real person to emerge – not the Insta-fab version.

October 25 brings the second solar eclipse of the year. This time in the Moon’s ruling 4th. Take time and don’t rush with property dealings. Look close to home and pay attention to home security and the needs of those close to you. The other two eclipses are lunar eclipses. Where your ruler casts a shadow on the Moon. The full Moon eclipse in the Moon’s ruling 4th again could bring deeply repressed needs to the surface. You may require extra reassurance at this point. Give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you do feel at this time.

Do however stay professional and keep your cool at the time of the next lunar eclipse in your 10th on Nov 8th. You may need to act with your head no matter what you heart feels. An actor friend of mine always handed out this advice especially when dealing with the cut-throat world of casting and associated rejection which is basically a survival hack for any of us no matter our profession. It’s this: Hide of a rhino, heart of a dove.

That being said, 2022 wants to hand you opportunity, freedom, solutions and success like no other cycle you’ve experienced in 12 years. Jupiter will spend approximately half the year in your 8th and half in its ruling 9th. Think expansion, opportunity and luck; travel, learning and freedom combined with beneficial merges and financial dealings of all descriptions.

Your birthday season this year will hand you extra special benefits as while the Sun and the other planets are in there, they will trine Jupiter. Even when Jupiter is retrograde as it heads back towards your 8th on July 28 but returns to your 9th on December 20.

Your next major cycle in which to shine and attract will occur when the Sun arrives in your 5th on Nov 20. Use this month to fine tune those desires and dreams ahead of the New Year. You also have Mars spending an unusually long period in your 11th house of friends, contacts and goals. Mars retrogrades in here at the end of October and remains backwards as we head into ‘23.

What this is telling you is don’t ‘settle’ for less than you know you deserve, Leo. That pride includes taking pride in all you have achieved in ‘22. And now committing just to what builds on that for the upcoming year. 2022 offers you more to take pride in and embrace. ’22 says: Go big or go home. That’s why you need to make this year a royal progress, Leo. Get ready to rule.
