your star sign...
Leo is a passionate fire sign ruled by the Sun. You are the most charismatic sign of the Zodiac. Warm and generous people love to be in your presence. If people don't know you they can mistake your outer confidence as arrogance. Your soul lesson is to transform your pride into a strength and let kindness be your super power.

Leo this week
You could bump into someone and then think you won't see or hear from them again. This time, being wrong will put a smile on your face and a skip in your step!
Something has shifted over the last few days, it's subtle, you probably can't put a finger on it and its here to stay. At a time of year when the focus is on your relationships and with that only set to continue over the coming weeks, you're starting to ask 'what about me'? For now this is just a quiet, inner voice but over the coming weeks and months it's a voice that will only get stronger and louder, especially if it's not listened to.

Time for a fresh start in partnership matters or a new potential partner for some now as the new Moon in your house of long term love and all things togetherness related appears and brings us the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey. You should like the ‘vibe’ of this Monkey as he loves to have a good time and enjoy the good things of life – which are after all, doubled in pleasure when you enjoy them with someone else. Couples should think about a second honeymoon or getting away and letting their hair down as if they’d just met. Singles could hear from someone they may have thought was a ship in the night. They now get in touch with intriguing possibilities and the promise of flirtation as Mercury re-enters your 7th on the 13th. Meanwhile, in another area of your chart Venus in your 6th makes a trine to Jupiter in your money zone and you could be looking at a new job, fresh source of income or pay rise. All in all you could feel sought-after on all levels. Not bad for one week, Leo.

Getting riled up or frustrated with things on the home front this week may have a detrimental effect on your overall wellbeing Leo so my advice to you is to take a deep breath and if you feel yourself at boiling point, It could be that you are bringing work issues home with you which may not be helping matters, even if changes around work are causing you stress. If you feel moments of anger get out and about instead or focus on physical tasks. You should find that difficult feelings quickly dissipate and if you have bee worrying over something it may prove to be groundless or else not as bad as you originally thought as Venus’s meeting with Pluto in your 6th may prove. Others could be looking at a new job or position as Venus makes a wonderful angle to Jupiter in your money zone on the 10th and you have a full Moon in here on the 22nd by which time your ruler the Sun is in your 8th house of transformations and personal power. The important thing to bear in mind as the Sun transits this house of your chart is that he is intent on ‘throwing a light’ on those fears and inadequacies and showing you that actually, they have no basis. If you have been trapped by lack of confidence in any area of your life, this could turn into a breakthrough for you especially when the Sun meets Neptune in here on the 28th. If you are willing to see things as they really are, to confront any insecurities or even the source of them, you will be able to step free of them once and for all. As always, the shift is internal but once made, the world reflects back at you your new set of beliefs via how people treat you. If you want to change your life, your relationships or your circumstances, the change always begins within so focus there rather than external events and people first.
Before the Sun switches houses, he has a leading role to play in the wonderful aspects which light-up your partnership zone this month. This is one of the best times of the
year to re-awaken closeness with your existing lover or if you are single, to attract a new one. A romance or partnership venture which begins at the time of the new Moon in here on the 8th which marks the start of the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey could have special significance for you. Joint ventures of all descriptions are favoured now and others could see a close friendship (which this house in your chart also rules) feature in some way. Romance make now take a serious turn from the start of the month as the Sun angles at Saturn on the 3rd. If you’re seeking that serious love the other party could well want the same thing you do. What’s more a potential lover could have the success, poise and confidence you seek in a mate.
The 7th sees the Sun square that Mars in your long term and home sector so please bear in mind what I said earlier about keeping a lid on things on the home front! However, what follows is nothing but positive influences affecting your closest personal relationships as Mercury re-enters your 7th after his retrograde period perhaps re-igniting a partnership or romantic matter that has been left in abeyance. Venus enters her ruling house and now it is all about someone’s attention being focussed on you rather than the other way around. Get ready for romance, Leo. Venus in here is all about the romantic side of partnerships but she obviously also lends her blessing to any joint venture entered into where the end result is produced by two people doing what they love. It’s time to commit to love in some way shape or form or time for a project and those who have created it to receive recognition. As Venus angles at Saturn on February 29th – Leap Year’s Day, some kind of commitment to romance or the romance of doing what you love seems the order of the day. Take that leap of faith this month, Leo!

- Time for that serious love and serious commitment
- Create a starring role for yourself
- That dream is not unattainable!
Your Leo pride and golden vibe sets you roaring into 2016 as on the 23rd a full Moon appears in your 1st. You’ll be only too aware of what others are reflecting back at you now. Is how they see you how you see yourself? Or alternatively, is someone else basking in your glory as you make them look good? That pride says you must have connections that compliment you but which are also equal – friends, lovers and partners who you can take pride in as they take pride in you. Is this what your relationship is founded on or are you suddenly aware there’s an imbalance creeping in or which may have been there for some time which you have not seen until now? Hopefully you like what you see and how they see you. If not, that mirror is a two-way one and you are being asked to adjust the reflection.
No matter what January reveals for you when it comes to you and others, a fresh start on the relationship front is not far away as on February 8 a new Moon in your 7th ushers in a new connection or new phase in an existing relationship as well as the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey. This is always the time of year when you should be looking closely at your long term relationships – friends and partners of all descriptions and if you are seeking a partner – be it a long term lover, business or collaborative partner – then this is the time to get very clear as to what kind of person you are looking for and set the wheels in motion to find them.
Everything that happens this year occurs against the backdrop of Saturn in your 5th house. The reason I am advising you to get very clear about the kind of partner you are seeking is that Saturn is asking you to get serious and preparing you for a big commitment in the areas of romance, children or a creative or business venture. Again, this goes back to what I was saying at the start of the forecast about pride and reflection. You should never settle for a partner in life that you cannot take pride in or respect. If you do this, only dissatisfaction, resentment and finally a parting of the ways will follow so look closely at your own reflection and own this part of yourself and the kind of person you need. You will live with your decisions now for a long time to come and while Saturn says its time for that serious love this also requires you are serious about what you know deep down in your heart you need from a significant other. Do not fall victim to others who say you are too picky or have unrealistic expectations. We all have our criteria when it comes to partners, this just forms part of yours – or should do.
Saturn has not been in this house of your chart for 28 years so we can say that for many of you this will be his first visit – or the first visit from him in here you have experienced as an adult. So, many Leos may find themselves making the decision to become parents for the first time as your 5th is of course the house of children. It’s also the house of passion, enjoyment, pleasure and creative ventures or anything that gets you noticed. Should you be serious about the pursuit of passion now? Absolutely! Especially when it comes to turning our passion into our profession or pursuing a profession we are passionate about. Passion is that intoxicating and above all, contagious ingredient that sees us radiating and draws others to our cause like moths to a flame! Expect to get serious about the path you are on or a project that just makes your heart beat faster. Nobody will be able to stop you from walking, talking or showcasing your enthusiasm and talents now. Take some serious time and make an investment in your image now and ensure it is aligned with your goals. If you want to break into a certain area for example, how do those who work in this area dress and act? Think of yourself as an actor about to take on the role of a lifetime – which this is as it’s YOUR life. What do you need to do to really project this role convincingly? Do you need to dress differently, look different? Even when socialising imagine you have already succeeded and become that person. How would this more successful you look, dress and act? Now, without breaking the bank go and become that person! Really immerse yourself in the role until it becomes you and the skin you’re in. Once you believe it and become it, the rest simply must follow!
And it will. News of success is on its way. By the time Venus enters your 1st on July 12 you will most probably have completed your transformational process and be ready to take up the role of that new you. Start your engines now before the Sun enters your 1st on the 22nd and your new Moon lights up that place that’s waiting for you centre stage on August 2.
All this is merely preparing you for the massive cycle of abundance and recognition Jupiter now wants to deliver as he leaves your 2nd and arrives in your 3rd on September 9 where he will remain for a year. While Jupiter remains in your 2nd the focus will be on your income, perhaps starting a business or exploring a second income stream or investing. Jupiter in here can increase your money and perhaps without you having to put in as much effort as you might usually have to. However, its always important to keep in the back of your mind that this, like all transits, must come to an end. However, Jupiter in your 3rd is all about education and communication and also what’s right outside your own front door in your neighbourhood. How you market yourself, sell yourself or let others know about your product, service or just what you personally have to offer can now be enhanced with spectacular results. It’s time to focus on written and communication projects – manuscripts, publishing, advertising and websites for example. Provided Mercury is not retrograde, you should at some point upgrade your phone, computer or any communication device. Others may see their means of getting around improve – perhaps a new or better car.
Education – either self education or the professional and more formal kind sees new avenues open up. If offered on-the-job training then take it. You may be looking at the level of education you received when you were younger. Were you satisfied with this or did you always yearn to attend further education or university? If this is your dream then Jupiter in your 3rd may just make this possible. As he rules travel and this is the house of shorter rather than longer journeys, if studying in this country seems cost-prohibitive, then if you are able to travel why not look into studying overseas especially in Europe? You could suddenly discover that dream is not unattainable after all.
Siblings and neighbours feature with increased contact with both and if you are starting a business or building a customer base for your home-based business, chances are your immediate community may provide your initial customer base or this comes through family members such as aunts, uncles or cousins. Or a neighbour or family member may alert you to an opportunity you may otherwise have overlooked. Jupiter may choose to use these as a conduit for his rewards. If you do work in teaching, communications, writing, publishing, PR or any kind of commercial activity then with a little effort on your part, Jupiter could just deliver that ‘lucky’ break. If you are studying or attending a seminar, you could encounter someone in your field who knows what they are talking about and who can turn out to be an inspiration and a resource for you.
Just ensure however that you choose your words carefully during this cycle. Jupiter can broadcast them to a large audience – perhaps bigger than you ever imagined and yes, while that can be good advertising you need to remember that once something is out there on the internet it can be out there forever. People will take you very much at your word now as what you say is how they perceive you. This can work wonders at that job interview or pitch, but it also can mean that a throwaway remark gets misinterpreted and then re-Tweeted and next thing you know you are dealing with the kind of publicity you didn’t want. Employ that inner editor and try to imagine each and every way what you say could be interpreted – or misinterpreted, before you say it. Be clear and direct and don’t leave room for ambiguity.
December – which of course always sees the Sun your ruler in your 5th of pleasure, does not disappoint this year and we have a Double Grand Fire trine appear on December 18th. This day sees the Moon in your 1st trine the Sun in your 5th plus you have Uranus, Eris and Ceres all conjunct in your 9th of expansion. That’s just one Grand Fire Trine! The second forms between that big Uranus/Eris/Ceres conjunction, the Moon in your 1st and Saturn and Juno also conjunct in your 5th. Remember what I said about romance or passion getting serious? This day could mark a big commitment on some level or surprise news around a relationship. Juno rules marriage or marriage-type relationships and asks us to look closely at the kind of partner we need. In this case with her conjunct Saturn in your 5th, someone who is serious about the relationship and ready to take that next step but who also combines this with the ability to make you feel freer than you have done in a partnership up until now.
There is of course, one caveat to all this. And that is if things have done been going well or you have decided the person is not for you, this along with the Pentagram which is also appearing on the same day, could be what sets you free from something that has stagnated and is now holding you back. This may happen without you even intending it to. Telling someone ‘It’s over’ may be the last thing you intend to do this side of Christmas, but all of a sudden it spills out over a glass of mulled wine anyway.
The 18th also sees a Pentagram burst out across the sky and it contains many of the planets that are part of the Double Grand Fire Trine, but in addition to these we have Jupiter in your 3rd and Mars and Pallas both conjunct in your 7th opposing the Moon in your 1st. Pentagrams are aspects of sudden brilliance that appear literally ‘out of the blue’ and don’t stay around for very long. We can this applies here as the Moon moves very quickly. We need to be ready to take advantage of what the Pentagram offers. In this case we have Mars and Pallas in your 7th so the energy of this Pentagram is especially focussed on relationships. Mars is not comfortable with the feminine energy of your 7th house but in this instance his tendency to look before he leaps or speak before he considers the consequences, is contained by Pallas’s more considered and pragmatic approach. She is all too aware of what the consequences will be of thinking or speaking without considering the other party’s reaction. She is also all too aware of whether you are in fact with the right person or not. Because this Pentagram should deliver that realisation one way or another. So, this is either for keeps or time to let go. Either way, you know you’ve made the right choice and with Mars in your 7th, don’t be at all surprised if its you who initiates the discussion – no matter which way you want things to go.
2016 offers opportunities which you can create for yourself or which begin right outside your front door. You will find that this comes easy for you but don’t get carried away if it all seems effortless; as I said before all cycles must come to an end and that includes the good ones as well as the more challenging. But success in your career or in love comes from getting serious and above all, about trusting that you know what you want better than anyone else. Go with that feeling and don’t settle for anything less.
