Overview for this Month: Leo (All)

October 2013

With fiery Mars transiting your sign until the 15th, dear Leo, you are making a strong impression and you are enjoying increased energy and stamina. You are on the go during this period, and adventure finds you, particularly around the Lunar Eclipse on the 18th. This might also be a time when you get published or a project culminates. You are especially communicative in October, willing to discuss virtually everything under the sun. From the 7th, Venus transits your romance, creativity, and entertainment sector, supporting your Sun and subtly but effectively boosting your personal appeal. Watch, however, for unintentionally misleading someone on the 9-10. On the other hand, some of you could be dealing with your own romantic disillusionments or social letdowns at this time. The 16th can find you especially spirited and emotionally courageous. You're likely to be dealing with some increased responsibilities surrounding home and family this month, however, and there can be some rather serious or frustrating issues to tidy up as well. Making nice, forgiveness, or simply bringing more faith into your relations can be healing around the 25th. From the 15th forward, Mars transiting your solar second house stimulates the inner warrior when it comes to earning what you're worth and being treated with respect. It's a good time for finances overall, although funds poured into family and home can be excessive at this time and a budget review may be helpful.

October 2013

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until October 23rd: The Sun continues to highlight your solar third house--a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a "busy bee". Communications, short trips, errand-running, and general busy-ness feature now. You could have a finger in many pies, so to speak, as your curiosity is piqued by a larger variety of things than usual. Used well, this could be a period in which you come up with solutions to a number of problems. You are more inclined to take pride in your intellectual accomplishments and/or your ability to socialize and make connections.

From October 23rd forward:With the Sun spotlighting your house of family and home, these areas are your instinctive focus during this period. Your family, home, property concerns, roots, and heritage come into focus and become a source of pride. You are likely quite preoccupied with feelings of security and your inner experiences. This is a time when you send down roots and seek a feeling of belonging. You could be thrust into a position of leadership on the home front. Ego confrontations with family members are possible now, but the best way to handle this energy is to do your best to strengthen your relationship to your family and your home base. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to. Besides spending more time tending to domestic affairs, the focus can be on cultivating and nourishing your inner foundations that support you and your growth. This is a time to collect yourself--to fill your well, so to speak.

Eclipse

A Lunar Eclipse Occurs on October 18th:

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

This Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar ninth house. Surprises surrounding matters of personal philosophy, faith, travel, and the higher mind may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest, for example, as a circumstance that tests your personal belief system or that requires the need to take a leap of faith, a surprising adventure that takes you beyond your normal routine, a sudden opportunity to travel or for higher learning, the publishing of a project you've been working on, and other such possibilities.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until October 7th:

Venus continues to transit your solar fourth house now. Domestic relationships and the home environment tend to be especially harmonious and peaceful during this cycle. You may have a desire to decorate your home with better quality items or more attention to aesthetics. An inner sense of peace and security tends to dominate now, or the desire for peace motivates you now. Your affections are strong but you don't wear your heart on your sleeve just now, preferring quiet moments with loved ones.

From October 7th forward:

Venus warms your solar fifth house. This is an expressive period for the goddess of love! It's natural for you to turn on the charm without even lifting a finger. You are especially attracted to aesthetic forms of recreation. You feel a little more playful now, and love matters tend to be laced with a touch of drama. That shouldn't be a problem--in fact, you kind of like it that way for the time being. More loving and appreciative relationships with your children may also figure now. Your powers of attraction skyrocket during this cycle. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from October 21st to November 10th:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of personal finances, as well as communications with friends or groups, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Major financial initiatives should be avoided. Remember that friends don't mean what they say and don't say what they mean, and take what you hear with a grain of salt. Group meetings may be delayed or cancelled.

Occurring in your solar fourth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to family relations, real estate matters, and domestic issues. Be as non-judgmental as you can with family members. It may be challenging to keep a healthy perspective regarding deeply personal matters and family. Family members may be on edge, or appear to be. Home repairs may not turn out as expected. Try to put off major decision- making with regards to home improvement, moving, and family matters for the time being. New initiatives surrounding home and property are best left for a better time, but reworking and reorganizing your home can be especially fruitful now.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until October 15th:

Mars continues to activate your solar first house, supplying you with added energy to apply towards personal goals, and a more assertive and direct approach to the world in general. This is an excellent period for physical training and exercise of any kind. The desire to be self-sufficient and independent is especially strong now. You are far less tolerant of being restricted by or dependent on others, and this is a good time to identify your personal strengths and to take positive action to rectify situations that may have previously felt frustrating or repressive. You might be especially attracted to personal challenges, and seeing just how far you can push. However, be careful not to push yourself (and others) too far.

From October 15th forward:

Mars energizes your solar second house. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself (your worth) to others using money and possessions as the means to do so. If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.

October 2013

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month: The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

October 2013

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until October 13th:

The Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar.

From October 13th forward:The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until October 26:

Venus warms your solar fourth house now. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

From October 26th:

Venus warms your solar fifth house. This is an expressive period for the goddess of love! It's natural for you to turn on the charm without even lifting a finger.
