The Moon is in Leo all day and finds support from
Saturn, the Sun, and Mars. In Leo, the Moon is "sunny", dramatic, and generous.
This is a self-expressive position of the Moon. We want to have fun, play,
entertain, and get noticed. This is a time when we seek attention--when we want
to stand out for our special qualities. Pride keeps us from pettiness, but it
can also prevent us from opening up and revealing how we are truly feeling. This
is certainly a feel-good, energetic day, with some practicality and attention to
detail this morning to boot. With the Sun in Sagittarius trine this Moon, honor
and ethics are especially important to us.
You can be strongly motivated to take action that helps boost your feelings of security as well as your comfort as the month begins, dear Leo. You have wonderful support from the cosmos for these efforts. It's a great time for bringing creative flair to business endeavors, discovering new ways of earning more, and making your home life more enjoyable and comfortable. You might also reorganize your personal space in such a way that you can think more clearly (less clutter) and produce more, and production is what you're particularly focused on right now, as you want to see tangible results for your efforts with a lot of activity in your solar second house.
Family may be especially cooperative or willing to lend you a hand with your endeavors. The 10-13 is particularly strong for putting in the effort and for reaching out to others as well.
With the Sun and Mercury in your family and home sector for the better part of the first three weeks of November, this is a strong time for opening up conversations with family, drawing up plans and lists of priorities, and spending a little more time on activities and endeavors in the home. In the week following the New Moon here on the 11th, brand new projects can get off to a great start. This sector of your chart is not only about your base of operations, it's also about thinking about security in the long-term. We often begin long-term career projects that sustain us and our families for many years to come with new cycles beginning in this sector.
Venus and Mars move out of your resources sector on the 8th and 12th, respectively, but while you'll be diversifying going forward, there remains strong energy in this sector that will stick with you for at least the next ten months. Jupiter is here, and a new guest, the North Node of the Moon, begins its year-long journey, encouraging you to spend time firming up your income, developing your talents and business, and taking better care of your money and personal possessions.
From the 8-12, there is great energy for connecting and reconnecting with people around you, not only with your networks. Siblings, acquaintances, friends in the neighborhood, and classmates can be in focus. There can be wonderful new ideas and subjects that capture your interest.
Mercury and the Sun move into your sector of romance and creative expression on the 20th and 22nd, respectively. While this shift can turn your attention to entertainment and "play", Saturn's presence early in the sector points to a need to get serious about these things rather quickly. The need for more structure in your recreational life becomes apparent now. Saturn moves into an exact square with Neptune - an influence that will go in and out of exactitude in the coming ten months. For some of you, this can point to a struggle with some form of creative block or financial realities that make it difficult to pursue your craft. A dream or project may not be getting the support you anticipated, and motivation levels can drop off temporarily. There may also be some confusion over property and possessions, shared resources or business. For some, a love relationship can be confusing or demand commitments that you may not be ready to make. Be especially vigilant with your financial affairs.
The Full Moon on the 25th occurs at the same time that this tricky energy is reaching a head, and can bring out strong feelings surrounding a friendship or cherished dream/ideal. Pay attention to what emerges now, but wait out taking action until you are more level-headed.
You're likely to enjoy much success on a personal level in 2015, dear Leo,
with Jupiter continuing to transit your sign until mid-August. You'll feel the
most power of this influence from April 8th forward. You're reaching a broader
audience and many of you are enjoying chances to travel or to learn exciting new
things. You're exposed to ideas and perspectives that inspire you, and others
are receiving you warmly. Continuing this year, you crave intellectual
stimulation. Others are seeing your value and recognizing your creative, unique
qualities. There is a new focus this year on creative talents, hobbies,
pastimes, and recreational pursuits. How you spend your leisure time is in
question, and many of you will be attempting to make better, or more practical,
use of your energy and time, as well as your talents and gifts. There can be
very rewarding work and effort going into hobbies and creative pursuits. You may
have less time to "play", or what you prefer to do with your leisure time can
change considerably as you incorporate more structure and discipline into your
life. Some of you will be working determinedly on a hobby or honing creative
skills now. This trend continues into 2017, but you'll be getting a strong hint
of it in 2015. For some, a romantic relationship can become more serious, and
for others, there is less desire or perceived time for dating and attention to
In the summer, you'll be doing some clean-up work regarding home, family, and
personal matters that have been challenging in the past few years. This is due
to Saturn's return to your solar fourth house, and for those born late in the
sign, to a square position with your Sun. This is a time for paying special
attention to getting your home life organized, secure, structured, and in better
running order. Challenges within the family may surface (or resurface) for
attention. However, by September, Saturn moves into favorable position with your
Sun after spending almost three years in conflict with your sign, and you'll be
embracing responsibilities rather than feeling weighed down and overwhelmed by
them. This is also a good move for improved health, a fact that is reinforced by
a Jupiter-Pluto contact with you from October forward. Many of you will be
enjoying a stronger feeling of well-being and vitality in the second half of
2015. Again this year, extra attention to communication and communication skills
can have big payoffs, until October-November. This is a time for skills
development, pursuing a specific line of study, gathering facts to back up
beliefs, and making meaningful contact with others. Health and daily routines
continue to transform this year as you discover new methods to replace ones that
have become inadequate. Particularly from October forward, you'll be
experiencing more rewards for the improvements you make. There is a stronger
feeling of being grounded now, and opportunities to heal the body and mind open
up. You might turn around a difficult financial situation at this time. Natural
talents may be used more fully in the work you do.
Venus retrogrades mostly in your sign from July 25-September 6. With Jupiter
leaving your sign in mid-August, this is a good time for absorbing the "lessons"
that you've learned about how you present yourself to others, your image and
manner, as well as your general outlook and attitude going into any new
situation or endeavor. August may not be the easiest of months for you, at least
on the surface of things. From September forward is a period of abundance and
comfort. This is a time for enjoying the rewards of your recent good fortune.
Finances can improve considerably for some of you, or there can be an increased
sense of being fulfilled and content. Some of you could acquire a major new
material good that you've wanted for some time, or you may be using savings and
resources towards a new business pursuit. Opportunities can open up to expand
your business or personal possessions. Some of you could publish a major work
around the time of a Lunar Eclipse on September 27th. While Jupiter is helping
you to earn more, Neptune continues to confuse money dealings with others. Again
this year, it's important to watch your credit rating and your lending and
2015 is strong for improvements to your health and well-being as well as your
communication skills. Opportunities to expand your mind and enjoy new
experiences are abundant, but as the year progresses, you're inclined to settle
in and enjoy a feeling of being grounded and more disciplined.
Jupiter continues its transit of your sign until mid-August. This is your
time - a healthy level of self-interest is natural and necessary now. While this
transit very often brings nice boosts to confidence and other rewards, it's not
directly connected to rewards in partnerships. It's more about freedom of
expression and learning about your own reach than it is about partnering and
learning about a special person in your life. However, because Jupiter rules
your romance sector, you can receive quite a bit of romantic attention and
interest during this period. Whether or not you're ready to settle down and
direct your attention to building a love relationship may be another story. You
are feeling things out, experimenting, and enjoying yourself. Even so, Jupiter
is connecting happily with Uranus again this year, and Uranus rules partnerships
in your solar chart - see below for more about this.
Interestingly, as Jupiter comes to the end of its transit of Leo in August,
Venus retrogrades in Leo (specifically from July 31-September 6). This is an
ideal period for review, reflection, and reconsideration, particularly of your
presentation and the impact of your personality on others - how this helps or
Retrograde Venus affects all of us in general, mainly in the areas of love
and finances. These matters are not straightforward during this period, and it
is a time for reviewing our attitudes rather than forging ahead boldly into new
love relationships or financial projects. Venus spends more time than usual in
your sign this year because of the retrograde, from June 5-July 18 and then July
31-October 8! But from July 31-September 6, Venus is retrograde in Leo, and
there can be some cooling off, reflection, and attention to the past. From
September 7-October 8, and you are likely to enjoy the attention as well as the
time to get more comfortable in your own skin. Retrograde Venus is a strong
period for learning about what you truly desire, want, and need, as well as for
making updates and edits to your own manner that ultimately help you to attract
the right people into your life.
With the exception of the summer of 2015, Saturn is transiting your romance
sector this year, and this brings more stability and groundedness to your life.
It also points to a maturing process, for some, in your romantic life. This can
play out in a variety of ways. This sector rules many things, including
attention you receive from others, romantic or otherwise, belief in yourself as
a unique individual worthy of attention, as well as casual love relationships -
how willing you are to share your light. You are learning to be less dependent on
others for applause and ego stroking with Saturn here. For some, there
can be romantic "tests" or a leaning up process as you become a little more
serious about who and what entertains you, and with whom you share yourself.
Flaws in your love life may become quite glaring in your eyes. For others, there
can be adjustments and changes to make in your love life, after which a
relationship strengthens. What you want from a romance, as well as what you are
realistically capable of giving back to a romantic relationship, is
becoming clearer. You are sharing yourself more selectively.
As your partnership sector ruler, Uranus is always an important player when it comes
to your love life (and business if it involves a partnership). In Aries and your
solar ninth house for many years, some of you could be finding committed
partnership through travel, higher education, or other forms of adventure and
expansion beyond your usual boundaries. This trend is especially strong until
June, 2015 as Uranus forms a trine with Jupiter in your sign. Some Leos may meet a partner who is from a very different
cultural background. Already partnered Leos might embark on new adventures with
a significant other. There can be some restlessness if you are not growing together and
reaching beyond your usual routine....cont'd
