Leo - January 2020
Hi Leo! Working life should benefit from a happy helping of new year positivity in January, as Jupiter sets foot in your house of work and routines! Jupiter’s reputation as the luckiest planet in the heavens is not for nothing; he adds good fortune, benevolence and compassion to any part of your life he influences. Opportunities to make extra cash from your work, secure promotions and pay rises and show off your talents, should all be prolific for lions as 2020 progresses. The first week of the month also sees Jupiter in conjunction with Mercury, a fabulous time for social networking and bridge-building with colleagues. During the days up to the 24th Jupiter will conjunct the Moon’s karmic south node, and this makes for a highly reflective period, in which outdated ideas and values in your work place will to be evaluated. Waste, extravagance and laziness are all qualities which will come under scrutiny now, and you will be keen to disassociate yourself from anyone displaying these traits, as you strive for a healthier approach to work.
Mars steps into your house of love on the 4th, and he won’t be standing for any procrastination around those romantic intentions; it’s time to let your secret crush know how you feel about them and what you want! This isn’t an overly flirtatious period, you won’t have as much patience for playing the love game, you will want to be to the point and up front from the start. This approach can save you a lot of time, but it could also take some of the fun out of romantic life! Mars and Mercury form a productive sextile after the 20th which is fabulous for taking a new love relationship to a more committed level and discussing your future together. This area of your chart also rules creative and leisure time, and you will probably find an enhanced interest in active, competitive and sporting hobbies under Mars’s influence.
Spiritual work is high on the agenda mid-month, as a potent lunar eclipse lights up your house of psychic affairs on the 10th. This is a wonderful time to work on your extra-sensory perception and intuitive understanding; you will be more sensitive to changes in mood and atmosphere. It could also be a period of low energy, as challenging situations and conversations seem to drain you more than usual, and if this is the case you really will have to take a break from the world, even if only for a few days, to recharge your batteries. Opposition here from Pluto and Saturn could trigger existing health problems which have been kept at bay or overlooked during the Christmas period. The festive time is over now, so get back to business and get yourself checked out if you are still feeling under the weather.
For lions already in a long term love relationship, Mercury’s arrival in your house of partners on the 17th is promising for important discussions about plans, in particular those connected with family members or your home. Ex-partners, legal battles and relationships with landlords or tenants are also ruled by this house, and Mercury can help you here to come to a compromise which will suit everyone and allow you to move forward. Just watch out during the days of the 18th to 23rd for issues with supervisors at work; Uranus and Mercury form a rather irritable square during this period which is likely to lead to some unexpected and heated debates with bosses over creative differences. Leaving these discussions until everyone cools down is your best option! Have a wonderful month!
