Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Roll out the red carpet because Leo has arrived. Passionate, loyal, and infamously dramatic, Leo is represented by the lion and these spirited fire signs are the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They’re delighted to embrace their royal status: Vivacious, theatrical, and fiery, Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate… well, themselves.
You may feel slightly bored and restless, Leo. If so, an opportunity may come your way today that shouldn’t be ignored. You may have a chance to take a trip to an exotic locale or attend a class or lecture that will open your mind to all sorts of interesting possibilities. Just because you only have one life, that doesn’t mean you can’t fit many different lives into it.
Mercury and Mars’s retrograde is truly challenging, but the good news is they both will turn direct in January. January is rich with multiple planetary transits, which means you are going to be very busy in January. On the second, Venus will jump into Aquarius, the Moon will rise in Cancer on the sixth, and the Sun will move into Aquarius on the twenty second. Your ruler Sun is with retrograde Mercury, which means your workplace is gaining importance. Retrograde Mercury can increase the blocks by damaging your communication and communication devices. You dislike this, but this is the month to deal with the difficulties like debts, diseases and enemies. Being the king of the zodiac, you have to deal with these, and ultimately, you will win. Health care will be the main theme of January.
On the second, Venus will move into your relationship sector, and this is a good move by Venus; this will bring balance into the love life. Being a headstrong person, you naturally do not bow down in front of any, but this Venusian transit will make you think about being a little more adjustable with your business as well as your life partner, which will be good for both parties. Please do not waste this beautiful energy; otherwise, you will lose the opportunity to patch up with your loved ones. Especially this Venus is ready to bring new profitable projects too.
Martian retrogression will end by January twelfth; until then, you will be meeting with your ex or your old pals. You need a reality check about your business plans, so you need to spend time with an expert to see whether you are moving through the right path. The right things will take some time to develop, but you should do the groundwork. After the twelfth, you will be able to set the right plans for your long-term projects. Such projects will start giving you profits later.
The New Year comes with a lot of hope and optimism, even though the year starts with Mars and Mercury retrograde. This retrograde will end by the third week of January. From then onwards, your actual new year will begin. Until then, you are supposed to do a retrospect and make better plans. In January, your long-term relationships will gain a lot of importance as Mars is in retrogression. So, you are supposed to improve your long-term relationship, and you should keep this as your priority in January. It would not be easy, but this is your cross, and you must carry it until you solve the issues.
Mercury will be retrograde every three months every year. It will end its retrogression by January, but the next retrogression will be in April, August and November. Each Mercury retrogression will last for three weeks, and these phases will be challenging for communication, travel and electronic devices. Most of the accidents take place during the Mercury retrogression phase. Yearly retrogression will impact globally, so all of us will be going through some issues, majorly connected with communication, travel and electronic devices. You must cross-check your communication devices and have a plan B for travelling.
Venus, the planet for love and luxury, will also be moving in a retrograde this year. Venus does not move in slow down every year, but it will slow its pace every eighteen months. When Venus is in retrogression, no one is supposed to start a new love life. Venus’s retrogression would not impact if you were dating much before, but this phase can trigger arguments in the existing personal or business relationships.
Jupiter and Saturn stay in a sign for the long term, so the transit of these planets has a big role in the yearly horoscope. Due to their long stay, they will bring long-term changes in your life. They will also retrograde sometime every year; this retrogression also will be the time for delays. The transit of Nodes only happens sometimes, but you will find some karmic connection to your goals when they transit.
Other major phenomenon will be the eclipses; there are four eclipses every year, one solar and a lunar, which will be a total eclipse and the other solar and lunar eclipse will be partial. So, this year’s solar and lunar eclipses will be very important.
