Three Solar Eclipses this year will bring dramatic (more so than usual) personal change. Usually there are only two such eclipses, but this year we have three. With the Sun as your ruling planet, you’re very affected by them.
Two eclipses – one Solar and one Lunar – will occur in your own sign, and this further reinforces the changes we see. You will be redefining yourself, reinventing yourself, more than usual. Generally the events of the eclipse force the issue. (More on this in the monthly reports).
The main headline this year is Uranus’s move from Aries into Taurus. This is major. This year his move is a brief foray – from May 16 to November 6.
But next year he will move into Taurus for the long term, for the next seven years. This will affect two important areas of your life – the love life (Uranus is your love planet) and the career (as Taurus is your 10th solar house of career). Health is also affected here as Uranus will be making stressful aspects to you. More on this later.
Jupiter will spend most of the year in your 4th house of home and family.
This often shows a move, renovation or the buying of an additional home (sometimes one doesn’t buy the home, but has access to it). It also shows happiness from the family. More on this later.
Pluto has been in your 6th house of health and work for ten years now, and this year, Saturn joins him there. This will bring changes to the health regime and a stronger work ethic. You will probably need to work harder this year, and you might feel the job situation could be better. You’ll have to grin and bear it. More details later.
Jupiter will move into Sagittarius on November 8 and Uranus will move away from his stressful aspect on November 6. These powerful planets will then be making harmonious aspects to you. So the latter part of the year – the last two months – will be much happier and easier than the previous months.
Jupiter in Sagittarius signals more fun in life, more creativity and more involvement with children (in happy ways).
Neptune has been in your 8th house of regeneration for many years (and will be there for many more, too). We have discussed this in previous years and the trends are still in effect. Neptune is spiritualizing your sexuality and sexual attitudes. Sexual activity will be more elevated, more refined. It will become less an act of lust and more an act of worship.
Your most important areas of interest this year are home and family (until November 8); fun, children and personal creativity (from November 8 onwards); health and work; sex, occult studies, personal reinvention; foreign travel, religion, higher education (until May 16 and from November 6 onwards); and career (from May 16 to November 6).
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are home and family (until November 8); fun, children and personal creativity (from November 8 onwards); the body, image and personal pleasure (until November 17); and spirituality (from November 17 onwards).
Leo Horoscope for 2018 Health
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health is basically good this year. Until May 16 only one long-term planet is in stressful alignment with you – Jupiter – and his stresses are not usually serious. On May 16 Uranus will move into a stressful alignment as well, and these two will be the maximum planetary stress (of the long-term planets), through to the beginning of November. And after November 8 both Jupiter and Uranus will move into harmonious alignment with you.
The other good news is that your 6th house of health is very strong this year.
You’re paying attention here. You’re not letting little things develop into big things. With Saturn in your 6th house you seem more open to daily, disciplined health regimes. You seem more disciplined in your health attitudes.
Uranus’s move into Taurus will be felt most strongly by those of you born between July 23 and July 26, early in the sign of Leo. Most of you won’t feel this too strongly this year (but you will in future years).
Your health is good, but you can make it even better by giving more attention to the following areas – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope (the reflex points are shown in the chart below). This will tend to prevent problems before they develop.
The heart. This is always an important area for you, Leo as Leo rules the heart. The important thing here is to avoid worry and anxiety, the two emotions that stress the heart.
The spine, knees, teeth, skin and overall skeletal alignment. These are also always important for you, as Saturn, the ruler of these areas, is your health planet. This year (and next) they become even more important as Saturn is now in your house of health. So, regular back and knee massage is important. Spinal health is vital, so regular visits to a chiropractor or osteopath would be a good idea. Therapies such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais or Rolfing would be good. Yoga and Pilates are also very beneficial for the spine and posture. Make sure you have regular dental check-ups, and if you’re out in the sun use a good sun screen. Give the knees more support when you exercise.
The colon, bladder and sexual organs. These areas became important when Pluto entered your 6th house in 2008, and they will remain so for many more years. Safe sex and sexual moderation (a big issue for Leo) continues to be important. The tendency of Leo is to overdo this. If you listen to your body and not your mind, you will know when enough is enough. A herbal colon cleanse every now and then – especially when you feel under the weather – might be a good idea.
With Saturn as your health planet you tend to be conservative in health matters and to gravitate to orthodox medicine. This year, with Saturn in his own sign and house, this tendency is even stronger and you tend to shun any new or experimental treatments. You might want to be a bit more flexible in your approach this year.
Pluto is your home and family planet. His position in your 6th house shows that for you good health means a healthy home and family life – domestic harmony. So, if problems (God forbid) arise, bring this area into harmony as quickly as you can. Also work to maintain emotional harmony. Moods should be kept positive and constructive.
Leo Horoscope for 2018 Home and Family
Home and family interests have become both happy and important since October 2017, when Jupiter moved into your 4th house. He spends most of the year ahead here. For Leos of childbearing age, this aspect indicates heightened fertility. (This will be true next year as well.)
Often, as we have mentioned, Jupiter in the 4th house will signal a move, home renovations or the acquisition of an additional home. There are many scenarios as to how this happens, but the end result is a larger, more comfortable home. People often buy expensive items for the home too. It is ‘as if’ one had moved or enlarged the living space.
This aspect shows the prosperity of a parent or parent figure and his or her generosity towards you, too. The family as a whole becomes more prosperous.
Your present home increases in value, as does many of the furnishings in the home. It generally shows the fortunate purchase or sale of a home.
The family circle expands this year. Generally this happens through birth or marriage. But often it shows meeting people who are ‘like’ family to you. You have this feeling towards them and vice versa.
Pluto, your family planet, has been in your 6th house for ten years now. So, there is much focus on the health of the family and family members, and on making the home ‘healthier’. Sometimes one spends on getting rid of mould or harmful substances (and they’re always finding new threats). Sometimes one buys health equipment or health gadgets for the home. We have written of this in previous years and the trend is still very much in effect. Your home is as much a ‘health spa’ as a home.
This position also indicates working from home – perhaps setting up a home office or home-based business.
Renovations will go well all year, but January 1 to January 26 seems the best time for this. If you’re redecorating or rearranging things in a cosmetic way, or beautifying the home, September 9 to October 5, October 23 to November 22 and December 2 to December 31 seem best. These are also good periods for buying objects of beauty for the home – paintings or sculptures and things of this nature.
The marriage of a parent or parent figure seems stressful this year and will be severely tested. There can be repairs in the home (there are two eclipses in his or her 4th house) but not necessarily a move. Children and children figures in your life are likely to move this year. They become more prosperous from November 8 onwards. Siblings and sibling figures are prospering, but they’re better off not moving. Grandchildren (if you have them) have a stable kind of family year.
Leo Horoscope for 2018 Finance and Career
With your money house basically empty this year (only short-term planets will move through there) finance is a not a big deal for you. Other things are much
more important. Usually this shows a stable situation. You seem basically satisfied with things as they are and have no need to make major changes. You have a lot of financial freedom this year, a lot of free will in this area. But, you lack the interest. The financial passion is not there. If financial problems do occur (God forbid) this is probably the reason. You will need to pay more attention here.
Jupiter in your 4th house for most of the year signals good fortune in real estate or in industries that cater to the home – furniture makers, landscapers, interior designers. It shows a good feeling for the hotel and food industries too, and good family support. Family connections also bring good fortune.
Mercury, your financial planet, is a fast-moving and often erratic planet, and, this would be a good description of your financial life. Sometimes it moves fast, and you make great progress. Sometimes, it moves slowly. And sometimes you feel like you’re going backwards. It reflects the movements of Mercury in the heavens. As our regular readers know by now, in any given year Mercury will move through all the sectors of your Horoscope. He will make aspects – good or bad – with every planet in your chart. So, there are many short-term financial trends depending on where Mercury is and the aspects he is receiving. These are best covered in the monthly reports.
The good thing about having Mercury as your financial planet is that money and earnings opportunities can happen in many ways and through many kinds of people and activities.
Mercury will go retrograde three times this year (an improvement over the past two years, where he went retrograde four times in each year). These are times to put the financial life under review and to refrain from making important purchases or investments. Your financial judgement is not up to par during those periods. This year these periods are from March 23 to April 15, July 26 to August 19, and November 17 to December 6.
Finances might not be a big deal this year, but the career will be important with Uranus’s move into your career house. Those of you born early in the sign of Leo (from July 23 to July 26) are going to feel this the most in 2018, but in the coming years all of you will feel it. Major career changes will be happening – and they happen suddenly and unexpectedly. It favours a more ‘free’ kind of career – the freelance life. Many Leos are involved with electronic media. (I would wager that if we did a poll of media figures – especially in the entertainment world – we would find a disproportionate number of Leos, or people strong in the sign.) There will be a lot of changes in your company and industry as well. Over the next few years I wouldn’t be surprised if you actually changed your career and career path.
Uranus, is your love planet. His position near your Mid-heaven from May 16 to November 6 shows that your social grace is maybe more important (or at least just as important) as your professional skills. Likeability becomes a factor, so you should cultivate this. It will be important to attend (or perhaps host) the right kind of parties and gatherings. You’ll make more career progress in social settings than in the normal, conventional ways.
The spouse, partner or current love seems very successful this year and is perhaps opening doors for you. The same is true of friends and social connections.
Leo Horoscope for 2018 Love and Social Life
Though your 7th house is empty this year we do see many changes and upheavals in love. First off, there will be two eclipses in this house – one a Solar Eclipse on February 15 and the second, a Lunar Eclipse on July 27. This will test existing relationships. The good ones – the ones that are basically healthy – tend to survive these things and get even better. But the inherently flawed ones tend to dissolve. But more important than the eclipses is the shift of your love planet from Aries into Taurus, from your 9th to your 10th house.
This is not just the shift of a major long-term planet; it signals a shift – a sea change – in your love attitudes and needs. This is more difficult to handle.
Uranus has been Aries for the past seven years and you have been a ‘love at first sight’ kind of person. You tended to jump into relationships rather quickly and often paid the price for it. You were attracted to the ‘excitement’ of love – to the adventure, to the conquest. You could fall in and out of love rather quickly. But now (and this is only the beginning) your love planet moves into conservative Taurus. You begin to want more stability in love. You want something that will last. You want ‘reliability’ and ‘steadiness’ in a lover. There is a whole shift in psychology. (As we mentioned earlier, those of you born early in the sign of Leo – from July 23 to July 26 – will feel this most strongly this year.)
And since Uranus is hovering around your Mid-heaven – the cusp of your 10th house of career – you are attracted to ‘high and mighty’ people. People who are already successful. People of status and prestige. Wealth will also be an allurement (much more so than over the past seven years). Wealth and power are exciting these days (especially from May 16 to November 6).
You will find love and romantic opportunities as you pursue your career goals and with people involved in your career. Often this aspect indicates the ‘office romance’ – a relationship with a boss or someone higher up either in your company or your industry or profession.
You want someone who supports and who can help your career and life work. And you will find this, either this year or in the coming years. Though there are many love and social changes happening, I feel you will be successful in love. Uranus will be the most ‘elevated’ planet in the chart. Love will be high on your priorities. There will be great focus here – and this is 90 per cent of success. By the spiritual law, we always get what we focus on – good, bad or indifferent.
This position can also be read as love actually being the career. Your mission is really your love life – your marriage and friends – to be there for them.
Uranus in your 10th house shows that you will be mixing socially with powerful people – the ‘elites’ as they are called. Much of your social life will be career and business related.
Leo Horoscope for 2018 Self-Improvement
Jupiter in your 4th house has many more meanings than just home and family, which we have discussed. In esoteric science, your subconscious mind, often called the ‘deeper mind’, is considered a person’s true home. We live in it and the conditions it has created for us (through our conscious or unconscious commands). It is the repository of everything that has ever happened to us – not only in this life, but in past lives. This mind is a slumbering, silent giant, capable of all kinds of supernatural feats, but always under the control of the conscious mind. If there are challenges in life, or undesirable conditions, this mind needs to be understood.
This is a year for getting this deeper understanding. So, those of you in conventional kinds of therapy should make good progress this year. But even if you’re not in any formal kind of therapy, you will experience ‘nature’s therapeutics’ this year.
Most people are not suffering from physical, financial or social maladies.
These are only the side-effects of deeper issues. Generally they suffer from ‘undigested or partially digested experiences’. Things happened in the past that were evaluated by a young, immature mind. Conclusions were reached.
Judgements were made. Often passionate statements – negative and destructive affirmations – were made. These, if left unattended, continue to operate in the psyche (and in our affairs) long after they have been consciously forgotten.
(Even statements made when we were little children will continue to act in our adult lives on an unconscious level.)
Jupiter in the 4th house is often interpreted as ‘nostalgia’ – a love for the past. This is true, but this too is only a side-effect. Nature, through the planetary powers, is bringing up old, long-forgotten memories. This will happen out of the blue (seemingly). Often a person has dreams of past events. Or, they might meet a person who reminds them of some past event. And though it might seem ‘random’ to the conscious mind, these memories are significant. Nature is helping you to confront old experiences that are still active in the mind, and to look at them from your current state of consciousness. What, to the child, is a terrifying trauma is viewed very differently by the adult. When this is realized, the past trauma loses its power and you’re free to create new conditions and circumstances. The emotional content is no longer active.
This is not about ‘rewriting history’. The facts are still the facts. The events are still the events. But history is being reinterpreted. The meaning of past events will change. And this will make all the difference in the world. In many cases, from your present perspective, you will see some past trauma as a great blessing in your life and actually give thanks for it. It was never what you thought it to be, only the tough love of the cosmos acting in your highest and best interest. Then healing happens.

You begin your year with all the planets in the social, Western sector of your Horoscope. This is highly unusual. Only the Moon (and for only half the month) will visit the Eastern sector. Thus this is not a time for personal power struggles or for self-assertion. The planetary power is for others this month.
You’re a naturally strong and independent kind of person, but right now less so than usual. Adapt to situations as best you can. Seek consensus in all that you do. Let others have their way, so long as it isn’t destructive. Let go of your wishes and be for others. If you do this, the month ahead looks happy. On the 20th the Sun enters your 7th house of love and you enter a yearly love and social peak. Your policy of putting others first will make you very popular this period. If you’re in a relationship you seem very devoted to the beloved. Those not yet in a relationship will have more romantic opportunity from the 20th onward.
(Putting others first might seem saintly, but it’s not really the case from the perspective of Astrology. It’s just the cycle you’re in at the moment.)
A Lunar Eclipse on the 31st occurs in your own sign, revealing a need to redefine yourself and your image. A need to be clear on who you are and how you want others to perceive you. The eclipsed planet, the Moon, rules your 12th house of spirituality, and thus there are spiritual changes happening. You change your practice, teachers or teachings. Often this comes about through interior revelation – a good thing. Often an eclipse in this house signals shakeups in spiritual or charitable organizations that you’re involved with.
There are dramas with guru figures in your life. Friends have financial crises and are forced to make changes. The spouse, partner or current love could have a health scare, and there are probably job changes ahead.
Your health needs watching from the 20th onwards, and especially during the eclipse period. Make sure to get enough rest – this is always the most important thing. Then enhance your health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

Health still needs attention until the 18th. A Solar Eclipse on the 15th will not help matters and will have a strong effect on you. Take it easy over that period.
Spend more quiet time at home and avoid stressful situations.
This eclipse occurs in your 7th house of love and will test your current relationship (and friendships too). Long-repressed grievances are forced to the surface so that they can be dealt with. Often there are dramatic events in the life of the beloved that complicate things. Be more patient with the beloved and with friends this period. Good relationships survive these things, but flawed ones are in danger.
Every Solar Eclipse affects you on a very personal level, because the Sun rules your Horoscope. This one is no different. It forces a need to redefine yourself, your image and self-concept. (In this sense it is a repeat of last month’s Lunar Eclipse.) New events – that come from this month’s eclipse – force this new re-evaluation. Over the coming months you will change your wardrobe, hair style and overall presentation (a six-month process that goes on until the next set of eclipses).
A Solar Eclipse in the 7th house often shows an impending change in the marital status. Singles will often decide to marry with this kind of aspect.
Married couples (in flawed relationships) will often separate or divorce.
This eclipse affects two other planets, Mercury and Jupiter. Its impact on Mercury shows a need for financial changes – this usually comes because of some financial disturbance or crisis. The events of the eclipse will show you why your financial thinking and strategy have been unrealistic. The impact on Jupiter affects children or children figures in your life. They should stay out of harm’s way at this time. They too are forced to redefine themselves. This is not a good period for speculations or for travelling. Avoid these things if you can.
Health and energy improve after the 18th. In the meantime, enhance your health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

Best Days for Career: 8, 18, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27
Your devotion to others extends to the financial life as well this month. Your financial gift lies in making other people rich. Sometimes this implies material support; sometimes advice or other kinds of help. With your 8th house very strong until the 20th, this is a good period for tax planning. If you are of the appropriate age, it is good for estate planning too.
This is also a good month for detox regimes of all kinds, and for weight loss if you need it. This is a very good month to go through your possessions and get rid of the things you don’t need or use. There is something very magical about this. One feels ‘lighter’, less burdened, less clogged up. The excess baggage is cluttering the mind as well as the physical space. It is a month for prospering by ‘pruning’ – by getting rid of waste and redundancy. A pruned tree grows better afterwards.
On the 20th your 9th house becomes very strong. This is a whole different psychological approach to life. Under this aspect you are more happy-golucky, more like your normal Leo self. There is optimism, travel and the expansion of one’s horizons. Students at the university level should have a good month.
Your financial planet, Mercury, will be in your 9th house from the 6th onwards. This shows increased earnings. Foreigners, foreign companies and foreign investments seems good. These kinds of people can be important in your financial life as well.
Pluto has been in your 6th house of health for many years. On the 17th Mars moves into this house as well. You’ve had a tendency towards surgery for many years and now the tendency is even stronger. If surgery is recommended it would not be a surprise. Sometimes these things are called for, but sometimes not. Keep in mind that cleansing and detoxing are especially powerful this month and will often have the same result as surgery, but will take a little longer.
The upper half of your Horoscope is now dominant. So it is time to focus more on your career and outer objectives. Venus, your career planet, will be in your 9th house from the 6th onwards, which is a good career aspect. The career horizons are enlarged. You are optimistic about the career. Business travel is likely.

A happy and successful month ahead, Leo. Enjoy!
Your 9th house remains very powerful until the 20th, which is good for those of you involved in legal matters – you have much cosmic help. College level students are succeeding in their studies, and college-bound students should hear good news this month. The urge to travel is also very strong, but Mars conjunct to Saturn from the 1st to the 3rd indicates delays. It will probably be better to schedule these journeys (and they seem business related) for after the 3rd.
The love life will shine this month. Uranus, your love planet, receives positive stimulation. The 17th to the 19th brings happy romantic opportunities for singles. For those already in a relationship it signals more romance within the relationship. It shows a ‘closeness’ – a togetherness – with the beloved.
You’re on the same page, physically and philosophically. Foreign travel can bring romance this month. There are romantic opportunities at college or religious functions too.
The financial life is good, but your financial planet is in retrograde motion until the 15th. This won’t stop earnings, but it does slow things down a bit.
Your financial judgement is not up to its usual standard, so you should avoid rash expenditures – especially of big ticket items – until after the 15th. You tend to be rash in financial matters normally. You like things in a hurry. But this month, with Mercury in Aries you are even more so. Avoid the lure of the ‘quick buck’. Financial clarity will be much improved after the 15th. You can also expect increased earnings too.
As we mentioned, the month ahead is successful. Venus spends the entire month in your 10th house, showing that your social grace – your likeability – is ultra-important to your career. Your gift of the gab and good ideas are recognized. On the 20th the Sun crosses the Mid-heaven and enters your career house. You’re on top of your game, where you belong. People look up to you.
Honours and recognition can come – both for professional achievements and for who you are. Personal appearance and overall demeanour seem important in the career, and you are dressing accordingly.

This is an eventful kind of month. Many changes, but basically successful. In order for your goals to be achieved changes have to happen, and we see the beginning of this process this month.
Mars makes dynamic aspects with Uranus from the 14th to the 18th. Avoid confrontations and watch the temper at this time. People tend to overreact under this kind of aspect. It is probably not such a good idea to travel over this period either. If you must, try and schedule your trip around these days. The beloved should also take it easy.
You’re still in the midst of a yearly career peak and this is where the focus should be. Home and family issues will take care of themselves – your family seems supportive of the career. Uranus makes a major move into your 10th house on the 16th and this brings much change to the career – to your company and industry. Some of you (especially those of you born early in Leo) could change your career path.
Uranus’s move into your house of career is good for the love life. It now becomes prominent – important – a major focus in your life. Your social skills are always important careerwise, but now even more so than usual. Make sure to attend or host the right kinds of gatherings. The spouse, partner or current love is also successful this month and is helping your career. He or she is in a position to do so. Now love opportunities happen as you pursue your career path and with people involved in your career. You’re attracted to people of power and prestige (and you’re meeting and mingling with these kinds of people too).
Health needs watching until the 21st. As always, make sure to get enough rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Earnings will be strong this month. Your financial planet Mercury is now moving forward again. Until the 13th he is in your 9th house – the house of expansion. On the 13th he crosses your Mid-heaven and enters your 10th house of career, an aspect that often shows pay rises (official or unofficial). The authority figures in your life are supporting your financial goals. Your increased status leads naturally to more money.

The planetary power is now moving into the Eastern sector of the self. The Western sector is still strong (this is a trend for the entire year) but you’re in a period of more independence these days and changes that you want to make will be easier to accomplish. You are less dependent on others’ goodwill (but not completely free to do your own thing). Your challenge these days is to balance your personal interests with those of others. You can’t go too far either way. Sometimes your way is best, sometimes the other person’s.
Mars entered your 7th house of love on May 16 and is there all of the monthahead. This is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, you might be overly aggressive in love – too pushy. On the other hand it shows an enlargement of the social circle – Mars rules your 9th house of expansion. If you can avoid power struggles with the beloved or prospective romantic partners, things should go well.
Uranus is still in your 10th house this month, still creating sudden changes.
In the career anything can happen at any time. The old expression ‘expect nothing but be ready for anything’ is apposite now. Venus makes beautiful aspects with Jupiter between the 1st and 2nd – and this brings career success.
Your career planet is ‘out of bounds’ from the 1st to the 7th, so you’re exploring career paths outside your normal sphere. Perhaps the career demands are pulling you away from your normal horizons.
Earnings look good this month – although there are some bumps in the road.
Mercury, your financial planet, moves very quickly through three signs and houses of your Horoscope this month. You’re covering much territory and making quick progress. There is also financial confidence. Until the 12th Mercury is in Gemini, your 11th house. This is his own house. He is at ‘home’ and very powerful on your behalf. It signals the importance of social connections, online activities and the technological world in earnings. On the 12th Mercury enters your spiritual 12th house. Thus the intuition, rather than practical logic, should be your guiding force. There are some financial dramas – perhaps delays – on the 15th and 16th and the 22nd and 23rd. But these are merely short-term hiccups. The 19th and 20th brings a nice payday as Mercury trines Jupiter. Speculations are more favourable in that period, but good luck can come in other forms too. On the 29th Mercury crosses your Ascendant and enters your 1st house, bringing financial windfalls and opportunity. It is a prosperous month.

A basically happy month, Leo, but two eclipses this month shake things up and bring about needed changes. These changes are not always pleasant in the short term, but in the long term they are good. Both eclipses affect you strongly, so reduce your schedule over these periods.
The Solar Eclipse of the 13th occurs in your 12th house of spirituality. This can bring shakeups – turmoil – in a spiritual or charitable organization you’re involved with. It often brings dramatic events in the lives of guru figures in your life. There are changes in your spiritual regime – in your teachings and practice. The dream life will be more active this period, but not very significant. Much of it is just psychic flotsam and jetsam caused by the eclipse.
More importantly, this eclipse (and there will be another one next month too) forces a personal review – a personal re-evaluation – a redefinition of who you are, your self-concept and the image you project to others. It is important now for you to define yourself for yourself, otherwise others will define you and this is usually not pleasant. Over the next six months, your image – the face you present to the public – your personal ‘look’ will be changed. This is in accord with spiritual law. Change the way you think and your appearance will follow suit. This eclipse impacts on Pluto, your family planet, so there can be dramas in the family over the next six months or so, and a need for repairs in the home. A parent or parent figure experiences personal, life-changing dramas.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th also has a strong effect. It occurs in your 7th house of love and will test a current relationship or business partnership. Often there are dramas in the lives of these people that cause the testing. Often old dirty laundry is dug up for cleaning. Good relationships survive these things – and get even better. It is the flawed ones that are in danger. Since this eclipse impacts on Uranus, your love planet, everything we’ve just said is magnified.
Mars is affected by this eclipse too. Thus it is not wise to be travelling during the period of the eclipse. (In addition, Mars is also retrograde all month.)
College-level students can make important changes in their educational plans.
A legal matter (if you’re involved in something like this) starts to take a dramatic turn, one way or another. There are shakeups in your place of worship.

Another eclipse, a rare third Solar Eclipse of the year, occurs on the 11th. All Solar Eclipses affect you strongly, but this one more so than normal. It occurs in your own sign of Leo. Once again you’re forced to redefine yourself, to reevaluate who you are and how you want others to think of you. It brings a change of the personality and image. Changes that weren’t made last month are made now. If you haven’t been careful in dietary matters, this kind of eclipse can produce a detox of the body. This is not disease, though it can feel this way.
It is cleansing. Cooperate with it. Partners and friends can have crises in their love relationships now. Bosses and elders are having family dramas. Health is good this month, but take it easy over the period of the eclipse, for a few days before the 11th and a few days after.
Since July 22 you have been in the best period of the year for changing irksome conditions. Take advantage of this, as later on it will be more difficult.
The Sun in your sign brings energy and star quality to the image. You look great. You have energy and charisma. Finances are also good – although earnings are slower than usual. There are glitches and delays. Mercury, your financial planet, is retrograde until the 19th. In spite of this, the month should be prosperous (as long as you handle the delays). Mercury is in your own sign.
You look wealthy and feel wealthy and others see you this way. The eclipse might shake your confidence and self-esteem, but once the period is over your natural self-confidence will returns, perhaps even stronger than before.
There are still many changes going on in your career, in your company and in your industry, but now it’s time to be more involved with the family and home. Your emotional wellness is important now. Venus has her ‘solstice’ from the 5th to the 9th. She pauses in the heavens (in her latitudinal motion) and then changes direction. This is what is happening in the career too.
Mercury goes forward again on the 19th, and the Sun enters your money house on the 23rd. So you can expect greater prosperity from the 19th onwards. From the 23rd onward you will be in a yearly financial peak.

Mars has been ‘out of bounds’ since July 9 and this continues for most of the month ahead – until the 24th. Thus college students are moving ‘outside the box’ in their studies – experimenting with new ways and new educational subjects. Same old, same old seems boring. This is also happening in your religious life. You’re exploring other religions and philosophies and looking for answers that are not in your own native tradition. This is basically healthy.
Many of you are also travelling to exotic places – or, rather, to places you would normally never visit.
Finance is the main headline this month. You’re still in the midst of a yearly financial peak (this continues until the 22nd). Earnings are strong. You’re focused here. The ruler of your Horoscope in your money house is always a positive financial indicator. He is always friendly to you – always helpful. You spend on yourself, you adopt the image of wealth and you ‘feel’ wealthier than usual. Probably you’re flaunting it more to the world. (Leos love to flaunt!)
Mercury, your financial planet, is moving forward all month and very quickly.
This shows fast financial progress; fast (and generally accurate) financial decision making. Until the 6th, Mercury is in your sign – a positive financial signal. He brings windfalls and financial opportunity and you don’t need to go looking for it. The money people in your life are favourably disposed to you.
On the 6th he enters your money house (his own sign and house), where he is extra powerful on your behalf. You will probably spend more on health and health products but you can earn from this as well. Financial judgement is sound too and the details of finance are easily handled. By the 22nd, as both
Mercury and the Sun leave your money house, your short-term financial goals should have been achieved and you can focus on other things – education, reading, intellectual interests and pastimes.
Venus, your career planet, moves into your 4th house of home and family on the 9th. This, couple with most of the planets being below the horizon as well, indicate that now your mission, your career, is the home and family.
Sometimes this shows pursuing the career from home.
Health is good this month. Those of you born early in the sign of Leo (July 22–25) need to be more careful healthwise, but for the rest of you, health is basically good. You can enhance it further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

The ruler of your Horoscope is in Libra until the 23rd, so you have more social grace these days, however it doesn’t seem to be helping the love life.
Mars, the planet of war and conflict, will be in your 7th house of love all month. And, later in the month, the Sun will oppose your love planet Uranus.
Love can work out, but it is going to take a lot more effort on your part (and the beloved’s). Try not to make matters worse by getting involved in power struggles with the beloved. Respect your differences. You and the beloved see things from opposite perspectives these days. If you can bridge these differences, things can work out and be stronger than before.
Your 4th house of home and family is easily the strongest house in the chart this month. Half of the planets are either there or moving through there. This is a lot of energy. Moreover, your career planet Venus spends the month in the 4th house, which just emphasizes its importance. Your real career at the moment is the home and family – to be there for the family. Venus is going retrograde on the 5th while your family planet, Pluto, is moving forward on the 2nd – another indication to pay more attention to the family. Career matters will resolve in a month or two – they need time. So, you might as well focus on the family.
With both your financial planet (from the 10th) and your career planet (all month) in the 4th house, the message of the Horoscope is stay in emotional harmony, get the family situation right, and finance and career will fall into place naturally.
Finances look strong this month. Until the 10th Mercury is in Libra, your 3rd house. This favours sales, marketing and communication activities.
Financial opportunities happen in your neighbourhood. This aspect favours retailing and trading too. Neighbours can play an important role in the financial life. When Mercury moves into your 4th house after the 10th, it shows family support and family connections. It favours residential real estate, the food business, hotels and industries that cater to the home. It favours earning money from home – from a home office or home-based business.
This is a good month to move or buy an additional home. It is also good for beautifying the home or redecorating it.
Perhaps the most important function of the 4th house is to restore emotional harmony – to digest and come to terms with the past. Those of you involved in formal types of therapy will make good progress.

Love is getting much easier this month. The beloved is backing away from a previous position to a position that is more harmonious to you. Mars will move out of your 7th house on the 16th. Love will be even better next month.
Your 4th house is still strong until the 22nd. So continue to focus on the home, family and your emotional wellness. This will lay the groundwork for your future career push, which will start next year. Your career planet is still retrograde – until the 16th – so career matters need more research and study.
Important decisions shouldn’t be made just yet. When Venus starts moving forward on the 16th you can further the career through good marketing and good communication. The career planet in the 3rd house is a good aspect for students below college level. It shows focus on their studies and success. Good grades, learning what needs to be learned, is seen as their mission in life these days.
Jupiter makes a major move into your 5th house on the 8th – a very happy transit. Not only will it bring prosperity for the next twelve months, but fun, happiness and enhanced creativity. Leo is one of the most creative signs in the zodiac and these days even more so. This is a party time of the year in general, but for you especially. More so than in past years.
Leos love speculation. But now this love is even greater than usual. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into your 5th house and starts to travel with Jupiter. The casinos and night spots are calling to you.
Mercury, your financial planet, spends the month in your 5th house. This is generally a good financial signal. It shows happy money, money that is earned while you’re having fun. Generally it favours speculation, but after the 17th
Mercury starts to move backwards, which complicates things. If you’re going to speculate (and it is difficult to see how you won’t), do so with half (or even a quarter) of what you originally intended. There is a very nice payday on the 29th or 30th as Mercury travels with Jupiter, but there could be delays involved.
Health is good this month, but will get even better after the 22nd. Until then, enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

There’s no need to lecture Leo on the importance of enjoying life. You are our teachers in that department. You’re still very much in a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 21st, and so let the good times roll! For singles the month ahead is more about love affairs than serious romance. However, there is a serious love opportunity around the 20th and 21st. Your love planet is still retrograde however, so there’s no need to rush into anything.
Mercury starts moving forward on the 6th and the financial judgement is much clearer after then. Until the 13th he is in your 4th house, signalling good family support and someone who also spends on the home and family. Family connections are important in the financial life. On the 13th Mercury will move into your 5th house and we have a repeat of last month, only better. Last month
Mercury was retrograde. Now he is direct. This aspect shows, like last month, happy money – money that is earned in happy ways and that is spent on joyful things. Speculations are favourable from the 13th onwards, and especially from the 20th to the 22nd. That period is an especially good financial period and you will gain one way or another (the cosmos has many ways to prosper you). The main danger with your financial planet in your 5th house is overspending. One can be unrealistically over-confident. So try to keep this in check.
Health and energy are super these days. When Jupiter moved out of Scorpio last month, the last stressful planet moved away from you. Only Venus (and she is mild) is making a stressful aspect. So you have energy to spare. If there have been pre-existing conditions they are in abeyance. On the 21st, the Sun moves into your 6th house and will be there until January 18 next year. You are focused on health – perhaps overly so. But it is a good aspect for setting up long-term health regimes.
Your powerful 6th house from the 21st onwards is also wonderful for doing those boring, detailed jobs that need to be done – but which you usually put off.
Now you will have the energy and patience for them.
Children and children figures in your life are going to have a fabulous year ahead. Jupiter is giving them a grand lifestyle – travel, good food, nice clothing, etc. If these children are of childbearing age, they are very fertile now. This month – after the 21st – they enter a yearly financial peak. For them, the challenge is good financial management.
