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
It's time to showcase your smarts at work as you're in a position to impress. Ensure you make room for others in the spotlight with you.
It's during the Sun's first full day in your career sector and with your head in the game, professional instincts sharp and your professional passions and fighting spirit engaged that an alliance between work and career forces reveals just how many options you have. While the Sun returns to your career sector at this time every year it's been 2 years since Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos has been here, with your professional desires, passions and fighting spirit already well defined.
20th – Sun enters 10th – five planet stellium in 10th
22nd – Mercury/Mars exact conjunct in 10th exact trine Pluto in 6th
26th – Mercury/Mars/Sedna conjunct in 10th
* Power moves can be made
* Get others onto Team Ambition
* Are you in the right company?
Change to your work environment are likely now as career and work matters shift into focus as ruler the Sun enters this area of your chart from the 20th. This day sees five planets in here. Fiery Mars is stoking up your ambitions and provided you don’t become ruthless in their pursuit or find yourself butting-heads with superiors you are in a powerful position now. Mercury aids you in getting those ideas across but this is very much the house of playing by the rules and doing things in a proscribed manner. Hence my saying not to insist on getting your own way as otherwise you will derail your forward motion rather than having people on-side. Mercury and Mars meet in here on the 22nd and trine Pluto in your every day work area making this an ideal time
around which to schedule that interview, presentation or all-important meeting which could result in the changes you’re seeking.
Ensure that you are coming from a place of integrity and that you uphold your company’s or organisation’s values. Or are you just content to take a pay cheque? Any conflict on an inner level may come to the surface as Mercury and Mars meet new planet Sedna in here on the 26th. I’m not saying that this is an Edward Snowdon moment, but if you discover that the place you work for is not upholding the same ethics as you, you may now seriously think about parting company – literally. And ensure you are operating from a place of integrity as well. With Pluto in the mix everything has to be kept squeaky clean. Fallout only occurs when something turns critical. Keep it clean and green this week.

Knowledge is power and what we learn from our experiences can never be taken from us. That’s the message of the eclipsed Full Moon in your 3rd on the 4th. News could arrive related to exams or education while others see their siblings or a neighbour feature but no matter what, what you have learned will be applied. This is also the house of business and commerce so you could be looking at striking some kind of deal or how you are getting around – whether this is by your own means or public transport could be about to change. The thing is – you’re not ready for that change after feeling slightly stuck these past months with Jupiter retrograde in your 1st. He moves forward four days after the eclipse. Here’s the thing – many astrologers forget to tell you is that the effects of the eclipse can be felt as early as five days before the event and then as late as five days later. Think back to last month’s eclipse and what changes or themes may have come up. Did they start to appear in the five days leading up to it, at the time it occurred or in the five days following? Once you start to understand how an eclipse works in this way, you will be able to quickly identify what it is bringing up for you. One thing to remember if an eclipse ushers in a powerful change is that this is usually in response to a desire we have either consciously or more often, subconsciously, expressed for a change to the universe! Even if we may resist change, our higher selves know that we need change to grow and also for things to improve.
Another thing to remember is that the Moon rules our emotional life. Full Moons tend to magnify our moods and bring things to a critical stage, so we can end up feeling vulnerable or else our feelings in a certain area intensify at this time. When a Total Lunar Eclipse occurs, the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon, so the Earth’s shadow falls on it, blocking out the light of the Sun. This can result in us ‘being in the dark’ or else unsure of our feelings for the duration of the eclipse – or we may end up feeling that things are beyond our control and this pushes our emotional buttons! Eclipses are not to be feared but they can bring in changing circumstances.
As full Moons can bring things to a peak and intensify those emotions, it’s wise to allow ourselves to feel whatever it is we are feeling but not necessarily act on them and wait for this to pass. So, as this eclipse is in your news and communications sector, you may want to wait before responding to the news you hear if you have a knee-jerk (or soul jerk!) reaction to it unless of course, it brings news of the
culmination of a deal or a success. But Jupiter reassures you this is all intended for your benefit no matter what especially as the planets, including the Sun your ruler are busy in your 9th – the house in your chart Jupiter rules. Because of this I have to say although the news may surprise you, this does not mean it may not be welcome or of the freedom-enhancing kind. This is also your sector of higher learning so could maximise the eclipse themes. The Mercury/Uranus conjunction on the 8th could deliver this or else there’s a feeling of breaking through barriers (whether self-imposed or just situations that have been holding you back) two days later when the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and Eris are all in orb in here. If that was not enough, the fabulous new Moon in here on the 18th could see a journey opening up or a new opportunity in a key area – read on especially if you have been working towards work and career changes for some time.
You’re also free to enjoy yourself too – especially if you are travelling but those staying closer to home will see their popularity increase and their social life light up as Venus arrives in your 11th on the 11th. Ready for some flirtation? There’s that too! And who knows where it could lead? Others may be seeing you as quite the prize now.
With Mercury in your status and career sector from the 14th and the Sun in here from the 20th, as well as Pluto retrograde in your work area from the 17th, you may now be paying some serious attention to work related goals. As I have reminded all the other signs – please remember that Pluto becomes so much more potent under a retrograde effect so his capacity to bring about transformations – whether we want them or not, is increased here. When we agree to transform, then Pluto can work in our favour. If we resist however, then Plutonic energy can go ‘critical’ and we can experience his eruptive side. He is in your wellbeing area so if changes need to be made in terms of your health, fitness, wellness or lifestyle please do so without delay. However, when it comes to work success you have the meeting between Mercury and Mars in your 10th on the 23rd – stoking ambition and enabling you to go after whatever it is you want whether it is that work contract, professional or creative recognition or corner office. The key here is to be very targeted and not to scatter your energy. Harvard business school found that the majority of their graduates who wrote down their goals, achieved them. Why not think of your goals as your personal Business Plan for Life? Life is after all, a full-time occupation so you may as well set yourself up to succeed.

- Love is entwined with karma and soul contracts
- Professional wishes could be fulfilled
- You glow, Leo!
It’s a year of increased cooperation and partnership for you, Leo. Even if you are a Leo seeking that place in the spotlight as a show-stopping solo act – the fact is you’re not going to get there without having other people on your team. Life is the ultimate collaborative experience and the fact is – you need people on your team. These people won’t just be limited to that special someone or marriage partner but can and will include business, collaborative and activity partners and even your close friends. Partners can come in many forms – an animal can be a trusted partner too. Whatever form these partnerships take it won’t be a year for going it alone, Leo. If you are single this could well see the arrival of someone – well, I’ll get to that in a moment. The year’s first major aspect is the new Super Moon of February 19 which promises this and much more as it appears in your partnership sector and marks the start of the Chinese New Year of the Goat. This is the year of the Wood Goat and it is all about cooperation and partnerships as it appears in your 7th. This year will have a highly creative flavour to it as many people born in the Year of the Goat tend to pursue artistic life paths. Don’t just think creativity is limited to the visual or performing arts – if you have a business idea that’s a creative concept. But working with others is the best way to express this for you this year.
The theme of cooperation continues as on the 22nd we see an almost exact conjunction between Venus and Mars take place. The planets will be just half a degree apart and we’ll be able to see this provided of course that the weather obliges and keeps the skies cloud-free. This is an extremely rare event and it takes place in your 9th house of expansion, learning and freedom. Inner cooperation and balancing the masculine and feminine sides of your psyche is what leads to soul freedom. It’s tuning into your intuition and then taking action on it. Travel, dealing with people from overseas, the mass media, people who are ‘larger than life’ in some way, academia, the law and the outdoors are all themes.
I’ve been searching a long time
For someone exactly like you
I’ve been travelling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied.
Someone exactly like you
This is the Year of the Pentagram and we will see a total of five (six if you count the double Pentagram of July 3) appear this year and they will have a big impact on your sign as many feature planets in your 1st house and the themes they carry are all around you and others – especially around soul contract partnerships. The first pentagram appears on February 25 and features Juno, planet of marriage and partnerships in your 1st and a wish-fulfilling Moon in your 11th as well as that fabulous Venus/Mars conjunction and Mercury planet of communication in your partnership sector and Saturn in your romance zone. Romance which begins now has that fated quality to it and also long-term potential. It’s all about understanding the kind of partner that meets your needs – as opposed to the one you think you want. Now, they can be one and the same but sometimes not. The key here is to understand yourself and what Juno in your 1st says to you is that opposites may attract but perhaps you’ll be happiest with – well, someone like you. If you realise that you are already with that person, then you may move to take the relationship to the next level. If you are a single Leo then bear Juno’s message in mind. More than one candidate for your heart could appear this year as there’s a glow about you that people will be drawn to.
Any feelings of spinning your wheels when it comes to forward progress will come to an end in April when Jupiter, planet of expansion, luck and good fortune, finally heads direct again in your 1st. It’s now time to push forward with your plans again – be they personal or professional and to make the most of his remaining time in here. Look back 12 years. What did you begin then? What seeds to you plant that bore fruit and what did you neglect to start or pass up on? If you look back and see missed opportunities from back then, ensure that you don’t make the same mistake again.
The Double, yes Double! Pentagram of May 31 has Jupiter and Juno conjunct in your 1st now and let’s not forget Neptune in your 8th – are you deluding yourself about a relationship? Pluto and Uranus remain in a tight square and you may find yourself facing a double-dose of reality if you have been labouring under an illusion. Other Leos could see work matters come to the fore now and there’s every chance you may channel your energies into this area with this particular Pentagram. The next one which occurs on July 3 sees Jupiter conjunct retrograde Venus in your 1st and has Saturn retrograde paying your 4th house of long term security a final visit. Look carefully at love for the long term and this includes the things you love to do as business decisions and where you live could also play a part in all this. If you are faced with decisions, don’t feel pressured to make them. Consider all the implications but know if you do this, you will make the correct one!
Ruler the Sun arrives in your sign on the 23rd bringing the start of your birthday season and your new Moon in Leo which is the start of your ‘official’ new cycle of renewal no matter what date your birthday happens to fall on, will actually appear on August 14 which is when you need to be alert for the first signs of new beginnings and these could be around money and assets – including that relationship you can bank on, as Jupiter moves from your sign and on into your 2nd house from August 11. During his stay in here you should see your bank account and your assets increase but be warned – Jupiter in here can make you spend it faster than it comes in and this combined with your Leo generosity could see you in the red despite any gains. Jupiter in this house is more about giving you opportunities to earn more money as opposed to a windfall like winning the lottery or receiving a pay-out or legacy. So, it is very much up to you to take the necessary action to take advantage of him being in here!
September 5 brings the next Pentagram which again sees retrograde Venus in your 1st – the day before she actually turns direct again. While Venus is retrograde its more about past loves than new loves – or what you have learned from the past. Some of you could have re-connected with a former partner or lover during this time and once she goes direct consider this the litmus test as to whether you now have a future together.
December 24 sees the final Pentagram of the year appear – literally a Christmas Star for all of us. Venus is now in your 4th and should make this a happy time for you when you enjoy the company of family and friends. New planet Eris in your 9th as part of this is asking you to look at any lingering doubts around whether or not you feel you belong or deserve the love you desire or whether the one you’re with allows you the freedom and the soul learning you’re craving. If the answer is yes, then you’ll continue the adventure into 2016. With Mercury in his own house as part of this Star and Jupiter still in your 2nd, other Leos could be ending the year on a high note when it comes to work rewards of the tangible kind but they begin with self-love and valuing yourself, your skills and your talents which again, is what your 2nd house is all about. There is no-one like you and part of this year’s soul learning is arriving at the point where you realise that – whether you are in a relationship of now. Soul success is what 2015 promises someone just like you, Leo!
I’ve been doin’ some soul searching
To find out where you’re at
I’ve been up and down the highway
In all kinds of foreign lands
Someone like you makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied.
Someone exactly like you.
I’ve been all around the world
Marching to the beat of a different drum.
But just lately I have realized
The best is yet to come.
Someone like you makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied.
Someone exactly like you.
