Your ruler sun is in humanitarian Aquarius to start the month, giving off a charitable vibe from the get-go. How can you help other people while keeping the focus on yourself? This is the question most Leos struggle with! The sun-Jupiter sextile on February 7 brings upbeat, optimistic energy, and thinking positively should bring a lot of good things your way. How successful do you want to be? With luck on your side, there are endless possibilities. Your chance to be successful continues as powerful Mars enters determined Taurus on the fourteenth, but getting what you want is much more about hard work and dedication than luck. Use the Bull’s stubbornness to dig in your heels until you finish what you started. The sun enters romantic Pisces on February 18, giving your world a dreamy glow. It’s okay that you aren’t seeing everything 100 percent clearly right now. Quite frankly, you could use the break from reality! The month ends with a sun-Mars sextile on the twenty-seventh, making all your good qualities that much better. What do you like most about yourself? Expect to get compliments about that and much, much more!

There’s a new Capricorn moon on January 5 that improves your logical thinking and urges you to take a common-sense approach to problems. This practical energy is a great boost when mapping out new projects and procedures. A Mercury-Mars square on the eighth could cause rushed thinking, and moving too quickly could lead to ruined plans, disappointing results, and unintended outcomes. You know how they say if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all? That’s perfect advice for this aspect. The full moon in your sign and lunar eclipse on January 20 help motivate you to be your best self, but you may be particularly influenced by what others think of you. Does their approval really matter that much, Leo? You’re fabulous and that’s all that matters! The sun-Mercury conjunction on the twenty-ninth is the first of many in the year, and its fast, adaptable energy helps you stay on target and have in-depth conversations about the topics that interest you most. Talking to people is easy when your thoughts are this clear. If you have anything to sell, this is a great time to get the best price for it.

The sun, your ruler, squares passionate Mars on December 2, which can be a test of your patience and character. Other people want to see if they can get a reaction out of you. Don’t let them have the satisfaction, Leo. There’s an equally challenging sun-Neptune square on the fifth, during which you might lose your motivation for doing certain things. Don’t give in to the underlying feeling that you’re not good enough, that you don’t know enough, that you aren’t attractive enough. There’s power in believing in yourself when no one else does. Thankfully, Mercury comes out of retrograde on December 6 and moves into fun-loving Sagittarius on the twelfth. You know all those things you had a hard time expressing in the last month? It’s much easier to say what’s on your mind now! A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on December 21 puts you in a happy frame of mind just in time to cross off the things on your holiday to-do list. Do you have time to put a good idea into effect before the new year? If not, write it down and save it for later. You can’t trust your memory during this busy time!

Awareness is key this month, Leo. The sun-Neptune retrograde trine on November 6 makes you very alert to what’s going on around you (you’re especially sensitive to major current events), and you might feel like changing the world. Take baby steps. Lucky Jupiter enters fiery Sagittarius on the eighth, giving you the chance to increase your social and cultural awareness. High on your priority list is learning about people and things that are very different than you, and the more eye-opening experiences you have, the more chances you have to grow. Expanding your world is always a good thing! Mercury retrograde kicks off in Sagittarius on November 16, making it virtually impossible for you to stay quiet about certain things. Unfortunately, the more you try to make your point, the more confusing things become, which can be extremely frustrating both for you and for the people you’re interacting with. With so much emphasis on the breakdown in communication, maybe it would be better to try to prove your point another time. A Mars-Saturn sextile on the twenty-seventh shows you what’s possible and gives you lots of energy to get the job done. Isn’t it nice to be working toward success instead of running away from failure?
