This is one more amazing month for you, Leo, with unexpected opportunities constantly knocking. This applies to your professional or career activities and to the way that you are attempting to align these more completely with inner priorities. You are shooting off in all directions and encountering occasional wild impulses to jump the tracks of existing responsibilities, and yet more often than not you feel constrained to rein these in, especially in the days following the intense December 10th Full Moon eclipse in Cancer. This is an entirely transformational time when lessons are in store and when you are likely as well to refine your understanding of your own inner world. This is especially so in the timing of the potent Full Moon. All through the month you are focused on your mission of service to others and to the collective at large. As you make your way forward into your next evolutionary stage, optimistic assessments that you are tempted to make must ultimately yield to limitation and greater practicality.
The following was written by our new resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
Happy New Year Leo! 2020 arrives carrying a grounding impulse that will help set your best intentions for the year ahead. You begin the year between two very potent eclipses, and with five planets in the Earth sign of Capricorn you have the opportunity to start 2020 on the right foot. Although Capricorn season, for you, can feel like ease and pleasures are in short supply while you are busy planning the next summit to climb but this is what the beginning of the year is all about in any case. With Mercury, Jupiter, the Sun, Saturn and Pluto all currently transiting in Capricorn, it’s an excellent opportunity to sort out the superfluous in our lives, and get clear about the next leg of our journey. January is a time of assessments. The impulse resides in getting clear about the current structures in your life and how these structures support or impede your growth regarding your goals.
With Venus still transiting in your opposite sign of Aquarius until January 13th, there could also be many opportunities to relate, create, socialize and have fun which offers a nice counter- balance to the pragmatic impetus of Capricorn. A healthy dose of relaxation or downtime is a also a productive way to achieve your goals in the long term. A calm mind offers clarity, which in turn allows you to make better decisions.
On January 3rd, Mars enters your fellow fire sign of Sagittarius and this will support and fuel your own engine. You should start to feel some ease and inspiration returning as the focus shifts from family and home life to more creative endeavors. Mars in Sagittarius until February 16th will be in a supportive trine to your home sign and should ignite passion, drive and ambition if you can actively participate.
On January 10th, a Lunar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Cancer bringing to the surface hidden processes or things that have been stuffed in the closet. Themes around vulnerability, safety, nurturing and support surrounding this powerful lunation could surface. For you Leo folks, this eclipse cycle has brought to the forefront the mind-body connection; something you to which have been paying increasing attention. You start off knowing that whatever objective around physical health you set yourself, must involve a good dose of mindfulness, calm and honest observations, if you are to truly feel embodied and comfortable in your skin. Being human means this process is
never truly over of course, but in any case this eclipse cycle is an excellent time to pay attention to both your body and your mind and to nurture these two very important aspects of life. From January 10th to the 14th, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction takes place in Capricorn bringing all of these reflections to the forefront and urging you to get clear on all this, and get serious about having your support systems at the ready.
Venus enters the sign of her exaltation in Pisces on January 13th, lasting until February 16th, softening considerably the impact of recent tectonic shifts and bringing support from unlikely places. If you are looking for subvention for a project, looking into grants or funding, Venus in Pisces would be a good time to send your applications.
Mercury enters Aquarius on January 16th bringing focus on partnerships and emphasizing communication and exchange. January 16th to the 17th is a particularly favorable time for generating out-of-the-box ideas related to your career or vocational field. Others could bring interesting contributions; you benefit when you can stay open to teaming up.
The second half of January emphasizes your collaborations. The Sun enters Aquarius on January 20th and a New Moon in Aquarius takes place on January 24th. This New Moon is a relational one for you Leo, with a powerful opportunity to upgrade your interpersonal dynamics. This time could also represent a period of readjustment within your agreements and it’s an excellent time to set clear intentions in connection to your relationships and the space needed within them. The sign of Aquarius being opposite to Leo means that Aquarius season highlights your partnership dynamics and also your need for connection. With Mars in Sagittarius also transiting in your fifth house of romance and creativity, this time period is ripped for connecting and experimenting in your collaborations. If the first part of the month requires you to find some grounding in your work life and routine, the second half of January will require you to adjust to other people but also highlights your desire for connection.
