Shortly into the day, the Venus-Jupiter trine perfects,
promoting cooperation, expanded feelings, and our more indulgent side.
The Moon is in Pisces all day, and we are inclined to daydream and
perhaps stray from our regular routine a little. We are more spiritually
aware and sensitive, and a little less inclined to concern ourselves
with practical details. The
Sun is quincunx Jupiter today, and the desire to experience something new, or
for more freedom to explore, can amount to restlessness if we don't know what it
is we want. This is a time of adjustments, and perhaps of letting go of old
habits, so that we can free ourselves up for different experiences.
This is a strong month for new endeavors, health and work routines, finances, and partnerships, dear Leo. The first two weeks of February are good for acquiring new skills, romantic or social activities related to the work you do or the pursuit of health goals, and improved relations with co-workers. While this is not the most sociable of times for you outside of your work, it's a good time for getting organized and making changes, even cosmetic ones, that help you feel more comfortable in your daily life.
Home improvements, activities with family, purchases for the home, and/or working from home are favored this month, particularly around the 2-3, 9th, and 13th. On the 2-3, your stamina is strong and/or motivation to improve your health increases. It's a powerful time for making changes and improvements to your habits and to your home life that are long-lasting and significant in
their impact. It's also favorable for nitty gritty tasks, as you more clearly
see the value of handling them. You have more clout than usual now.
The 8-9 can offer opportunities to advance in a business or at/through work, to make more money now and in the future, and for inspiring ideas. Money-making ideas may be golden. You might come across a new and innovative diet or health program now. You are generous and want to share, possibly through lending your help or performing a service. It's also a fine time to partner up in order to accomplish something important to you.
Around the 13th, your sense of timing is magnificent. This is a good time for home and family-related projects, as you are especially resourceful right now. Enthusiasm runs high for making money and taking care of personal possessions. Creative projects can be published or launched.
The New Moon on the 8th brings new energy for forming a partnership or improving one. It's also strong for seeing yourself through others' eyes, taking steps to improve your connections with others, and finding ways to bring more balance, harmony, and beauty into your life in general. From the 16th forward is a perhaps
an even stronger period for attracting helpful people into your life. Energetically, it may not be the most powerful time for personal plans, but focusing on connecting well with others can give your life a real boost.
Jupiter in your resources sector is a longer-term influence that supports your income or feelings of abundance and comfort. It's in decent shape this month, harmonizing with Mercury, Venus, and Mars, suggesting various channels opening up for pursuing your financial goals. However, with Jupiter retrograde and in opposition to Chiron, peaking on the 22-23, this can be a time for exploring any fears or insecurities that may be holding you back from reaching your potential when it comes to income and employing your natural talents. Any feelings of unworthiness in this area should be addressed now. Dependencies may be a source of guilt with Chiron in your solar eighth house, and this can impact your attitude towards going after material opportunities, as well as your confidence in what you have to offer.
The Full Moon on the 22nd can open your eyes to the need or desire to manage your resources. The final week of the month may be colored by the feelings awakened by this lunation. This is also a time for connecting deeply with your innermost dreams and fantasies. Pulling back a little from material pursuits can be beneficial now. You might gain new understanding of where you'd like to go.
Themes this year continue to involve reworking and transforming your daily
routines, work, and health, dear Leo, as well as building and developing talents
and resources. Later this year, you'll be diversifying, making more connections,
and spreading your energy a little more.
Learning, changing belief systems, travel, and culture continue to be in
focus. Spiritual awakenings happen through your new experiences and exposure to
different beliefs and knowledge. Healing techniques and methods begun last year
or implemented this year are powerful and even life-changing. There is good,
needed focus on your earnings, earnings potential, the building of natural
talents, and development of business.
You continue to take love connections more seriously - a theme that began in
2015 and that is still developing in 2016. Whether to trust or protect your
heart is an issue for many with a Saturn-Neptune square playing out for much of
the year in your fun and intimacy sectors. Partnerships may be formed through
learning and traveling experiences, and some of you are exploring long-distance
relationships this year. Love connections could be made through your pursuit of
work, health, and wellness goals, or the major lifestyle changes you are making
bring you into contact with new lovers and friends.
Continuing attention to debt, shared resources, and areas of drain or neglect
with your finances is important. You may be drawn to investing in the wrong
ventures or people, perhaps ignoring practical considerations in the process.
Creative ventures need special attention. Whether to expand or focus on getting
the practical basics right can be an issue.
An important area of focus in the first seven months of the year is about taking charge of your home and family life,
which may be demanding at times. Home life may be a little
hurried and hectic. There may be increased noise and activity on the home front
or with family, stimulating restlessness and impatience. Family disputes are
possible. Home improvements can leave things in a state of flux. Old problems,
whether they're around the home or emotional ones, can resurface. By working on
your inner foundation and your "base", you'll improve many other life
departments as well.
Until September, there can be a feeling of abundance, and
for some, a chance to indulge, take a pause, and revel in things. Some of you
could acquire something of value that you've always wanted, invest, or enjoy an
increase in business and income. There can be a strong emphasis on comfort and
enjoying simple (and sometimes not so simple) pleasures. You can take great
pleasure in growing and building a business or exploring creative pursuits and
An eclipse in August introduces a new theme that will play
out over the coming two years. This can be experienced as the first cosmic push
to better define your life in terms of your partnership needs, bringing up
themes of cooperation versus independence.
From September forward, you may be exploring and
developing writing, speaking, and teaching skills. You can be reaching out more
often and finding new things to learn. Some will be intensely involved in detail
work and skill-building, and while this may not show immediate rewards or
profits, these things can be extremely helpful in projects down the road. Skills
and knowledge gained now can be very profitable and useful in the years ahead.
You are bringing tons of creativity to your communications. There can be
interesting opportunities emerging through courses, meetings, siblings,
neighbors, and classmates. Love relationships might begin through pursuit of
learning and mental interests. New and improved ways to commute and
connect are also in focus.
This Year in Love: Leo
2015-2016 Love Horoscope for Leo
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
