Greatest changes in this upcoming year are for the Leo individuals born:
July 29th & 30th, August 10th, 11, 19th & 20th.
First Full Moon of the year is in your sign on January 24th and it doesn’t hold many aspects in the chart, making it run away with the show! Bring out your creative flair Leos, this can be a fantastic night to allow your colors to shine!
Venus enters Leo on July 12th where there is lots of talk of beauty, and new hair-styles, and styles of clothes. Venus enjoys going through Leo as it allows her to be dramatic and silly all at the same time! She can be extreme in this sign and nobody notices, or if they do they simply chalk it up to it being in Leo – such a colourful sign all on its own! But people who generally dress in black and white, automatically changes to colors of Red and Yellows when Venus enters into Leo – it simply gives off that kind of vibration.
Mercury enters Leo on July 13th – where conversation and communication starts to happen via people’s hands. People automatically get into body-language, whether they realize it or not! A lot of authors are born with their Mercury in Leo, especially the authors such as Harlequin Romance novels – after all Leo and Romance go together like a hand in a glove.
New Moon on August 2nd is in your sign Leo – let the games begin! Can’t you hear the trumpets playing now!! Neptune is giving you the illusion that all is right with the world….but underneath you know things are not complete – there is still more you have to do before this year is complete! You are caught in a bit of a Yod during this New Moon – 2 feet on 2 different forks in the road – should you go left….or go right….decisions….decisions – this New Moon forces you to look at life through a different set of eyes.
This play around of Jupiter in Virgo certainly has been giving you a run for your money! Speaking of money, I hope you have been stashing some away, because when Jupiter retrogrades in Virgo, your house of money gets hit again. When Jupiter turns direct in May you’ll be able to breathe easy once more. Business plans can easily come into play by early summer.
When Jupiter moves into the sign of Libra, this opens a whole new avenue for you around the avenue of communication. Perhaps there is a blog you would like to start, or a community website you would like to run, or simply a way of bringing people together. Gift of gab and bringing people together will be so in your ball-court by early Fall.
