When the great communicator Mercury moves out of eccentric Aquarius and into shy Pisces on February 3, you notice subtle changes in the way you talk to people. You don’t usually have a problem finding ways to break the ice with strangers, but now you’re more reserved and quieter. This can work to your advantage, Leo, since you can usually find a way to work most every angle! The emotional moon spends time in your dramatic sign on the seventh and eighth, so you’ll have no problem telling other people how you feel—about everything! You’re an open book now, and you love to get attention by any means necessary. You aren’t above exaggerating the details of a story to get a better response or more applause. A stern Capricorn moon arrives on February 18, urging you to think about the future and put your priorities in order. “Caution” is one of the keywords of this lunation, especially if you have professional goals in mind. Anything you start incorrectly now will only compound issues later. Power and control issues surface during the Venus-Pluto square on the twenty-eighth, but try to remember the lesson about forgiveness you learned earlier in the month. Avoid manipulative behavior, and don’t accept it from anyone else. Passive-aggressive behavior solves nothing.

When talkative Mercury conjoins unrestrained Jupiter on January 2, the possibilities are endless. You can’t help but feel optimistic when you think about all the potential new connections you’ll be able to make. If you’re like most Leos, you already have an outgoing personality, and this transit only increases your willingness to be social. The emotional moon moves into your demonstrative sign on the eleventh, creating drama and intrigue. You love being the center of attention, and during this transit you might overreact or exaggerate to get more of it. People are drawn to your magnetic personality and fascinated by your talents now, and you welcome the applause! A powerful sun-Pluto conjunction in ambitious Capricorn on January 13 highlights the many outstanding things on your to-do list and reminds you that you have plenty of responsibilities to take care of before you have fun. Good thing you have the motivated Goat’s energy to help you push through. A new moon in quirky Aquarius helps put some fun back in your life on the twenty-fourth, and the more open-minded you are the better. You have a lot of great ideas, so try to find someone who can help you turn them into reality. You’re much better in a leadership or supervisory role than a hands-on one right now.

There’s a sun-Neptune square on December 8 that can cause disappointment and confusion during the first part of the month. You might feel like you’re the underdog but lack the will or energy to do anything about it. This isn’t like you, Leo. You might not have the desire to fight now, but you won’t stay in the shadows forever. A full moon in intelligent Gemini on the eleventh helps you get some important things done just in time to meet your deadlines. It’s not that you enjoy procrastinating, but there are so many other fun things you want to do. Taking care of outstanding projects now will save you time in the long run. Loving Venus enters somewhat aloof Aquarius on December 20, encouraging you to look at things from a whole new perspective. You value freedom of expression, and you not only want others to give you space, but you give it to them in return. You have lots of friendships and make lots of new connections now, but they won’t be that deep. When normally quick-thinking Mercury enters steady Capricorn on the twenty-eighth, your thought patterns become more organized. You can benefit from looking at things more logically versus emotionally, especially communications issues. Be careful not to come across as too harsh though, Leo. You’re still warm, caring, and compassionate despite this businesslike energy.

When love goddess Venus enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius on November 1, you love a great adventure, and you’ll follow your crush or true love to the ends of the earth to be with them. This can also have an exciting effect on the rest of the your life, Leo, so don’t hesitate to say yes the next time someone invites you to do something amazing. There’s a purposeful sun-Pluto sextile on the thirteenth that urges you to lay it all on the line. If there’s something in your life that doesn’t serve its purpose anymore, let it go. Life’s too short to hang on to things that don’t matter. The sun enters spontaneous Sagittarius on November 22, giving you permission to leap before you look. Will there be consequences you didn’t think of? Probably. Will you care in the long run? Probably not. This energy is all about enjoying the learning experiences that are presented to you. Dreamy Neptune goes direct on the twenty-seventh, so it’s safe to retreat into fantasyland once again. You no doubt had your eyes opened about a certain situation while Neptune was retrograde, but maybe not enough to do anything about it.
