LEO & YOUR RULER, THE SUN
In search of Self: Leo’s Journey through the Zodiac
19 January Sun moves into Aquarius Once you accept that your life is yours to control, direct and create you can get started on deciding what to do with it. Follow your own star, dare to be different, dazzle the world with your unique quality and style. You can determine your own destiny! The future is yours to fulfil.
18 February Sun moves into Pisces Now that you have gained your sense of direction and of how you want 2021 to work out, it is time to tune into the guidance that flows to you through your dreams & visions. Sleep as much as you can and, as you may be feeling rather more sensitive and vulnerable than usual, it is important to retreat from the harsher aspects of life whenever possible.
20 March Sun moves into Aries we have arrived at the Equinox and now is the time to set your goals for the coming season. Start out with an overall idea of what you would like to achieve during the year and then break the path to your ultimate objective into a series of shorter term goals, or destinations. This is a very good placement for your Ruler, as it boosts your confidence, motivation and enthusiasm. But it might up your levels of impatience, so be careful not to push yourself too hard, too soon.
19 April Sun moves into Taurus This is an excellent time to balance the books and take stock of your situation. Make sure you have the material resources you need to provide a firm foundation on which to build. If they are scarce, do not be tempted to cut corners on quality but try to keep your overheads low. You may have to slow down for the time being, until you have replenished your reserves. Check that you are putting your talents and abilities to the best possible use, as they will help you generate the wealth that makes your life more enjoyable, comfortable and secure.
20 May Sun moves into Gemini This is a helpful placement for your Ruler, as it supports your ability to communicate, network and make connections with people from your peer group, community and neighbourhood. Everything you need is in your local area so long as you get linked in with the right contacts.
21 June Sun moves into Cancer (Solstice) Your ruler has reached a potent point in this year’s calendar. This could be a very creative time for you, provided you are prepared to give yourself entirely to whatever it is you are trying to accomplish. Your goal has to resonate with you on a personal level and your emotional attachment to it should be strong. Otherwise, you will not have the energy or enthusiasm to achieve it.
22 July Sun moves into Leo No doubt about it, this is your time of year! Celebrate your Self and give thanks for the Star Quality that makes you Special. Take your place centre stage, stand in the spotlight and radiate your waves of charismatic charm. Accept the applause and admiration that you so rightly deserve. Bask in the warm approval of those who love, cherish and respect you. Say it loud: I’m Me and I’m Proud!
22 August Sun moves into Virgo This could be your busiest time of year in one way or another. Perhaps you are clearing up after one stage of your life plan, or maybe you’re preparing for the next – or both! Either way, it is a good idea to work on making your daily routine more efficient & effective so that your health & wellbeing are better served. You may need to sharpen your delegation skills so you can make it easier for your colleagues to help you, and take some of the strain off you.
22 September Sun moves into Libra The life of Leo can be lonely at times, however popular and sociable you are. You can feel that everything is up to you, and that a lot is expected of you by those who look to you as a source of energy and leadership. Actually, Leos are quite proud of their managerial ability but everyone needs somebody to turn to for support and advice. What could be a better time than the Libra Equinox to re-dress the balance, to prioritise your partnership potential and to admit that it would be wonderful to have a Special Someone by your side. Perhaps they are already sitting there, waiting for you to notice them!
23 October Sun moves into Scorpio This may be the most challenging time of year for you, when you have to confront truths that are difficult to digest. These could be connected to the management of your resources which may require you to make some tough – even ruthless – moves. Likewise with important relationships, whether intimate or business. You may feel that you are involved in a game of chess where both partners are trying to out manoeuvre one another. It would be best to trust your instincts to guide you on to how to manage matters. Your motive is to serve your conscience and integrity by achieving the most effective outcomes for all concerned. You do not want to come away feeling guilty or ashamed.
22 November Sun moves into Sagittarius Your Ruler is happy in this fellow fire sign, as it helps to boost your overall levels of optimism and positivity. Your sense of adventure could be activated, and you may be looking forward to expanding your horizons. Some form of travel (physical, mental or spiritual) might be on the agenda, or you could be contemplating enrolling on a course that promises to increase your current levels of knowledge and experience.
21 December Sun moves into Capricorn (Solstice) Once again you have reached the turning of the year so be of good cheer! You have come this far, regardless of all the obstacles and delays that blocked your way. You are ready to give yourself a pat on the back for surviving through the hard times and for making the most of any opportunities that crossed your path. It is now time to evaluate your progress and optimise your plans for the next stage of your endeavour.
PLANETS IN LEO
11 June Mars moves into Leo This is when your leadership potential could begin to shine. Don’t be afraid to move into prime position and allow this placement to charge your aura with confidence and conviction. These are the key energies that will attract attention towards you and motivate others to follow your direction.
27 June Venus moves into Leo When it comes to showing off, you have just been awarded carte blanche. This placement enhances your charm and charisma to such an extent that your celebrity status sparkles even more brightly in the eyes of your already devoted fans. This is a good time to lavish your attention on your relationship with your Self and engage with the Inner Child who still craves your consideration. But don’t forget to shed a little of your Light on the rest of us mere mortals.
28 July Mercury moves into Leo Leos tend to have strong opinions and sound views on most matters. This is a good time to showcase your ideas by presenting them in front of an audience. Not everyone will agree with you and you may receive boos as well as cheers. But the important thing is to get your message across in a way that will wow your listeners and leave them wanting more.
PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR LEO
The not so good news is that Leo will be having quite a lot to deal with over the next couple of years. But the very good news is that you can call on some strong support to help you cope with the challenge.
Chiron & Eris are in Aries These two quite different influences are combining to fortify and sustain you. Chiron in Aries is reinforcing your self-healing abilities, so that any health issues (whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual) will seem more like incentives to become more self-sufficient in matters of your own vitality and wellbeing. You may become aware of forces that are generated by you and emanate from you which help other people to activate their own healing process. They could feel warmed and invigorated by your aura and your presence. This same force can be applied by you to your own body and the energy field that surrounds it. If, for example, you are suffering with toothache, you could ease it by placing your hands over the afflicted area. You will soon feel the soothing warmth radiating out through your hands into the source of your pain. If your distress is emotional, you can visualise it as a solid form with a rainbow of light rising above it, shining through the doom and gloom, making it disappear.
The influence of Eris in Aries is like having a brave gladiator standing beside you, waiting to win your battles and defend your honour. She (for she is a female warrior) will spring into action the moment you need her to help you assert yourself in situations that appear to be going against you. Her feisty spirit will give you the courage to stand up for yourself, to fight if you have to and to retreat when you are required to.
PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR LEO
The solar system giants, Jupiter & Saturn, have moved into Aquarius – your opposite sign. This suggests that as 2021 progresses, you might be feeling rather ganged up on. Not in any personal sense, but rather due to forces of circumstance and major shifts in global affairs that are completely beyond your control. None of this is your fault and, to a certain extent, there isn’t much you can do about it. Just continue to live your own life as fully and joyously as you can until the great wheel of fortune turns again and you find yourself in a new world, and in a new era.
Uranus in Taurus you do not need an astrologer to remind you that we are moving through a strange and unpredictable era. Changes are coming at us from all directions – hardly a day goes by when something that seemed sorted and settled has once again disintegrated into total chaos! The world desperately needs people like you who can perform the role of Light Beacons – joyful and bright, stable and strong, flashing your reassuring messages of hope into the night. Leos have that special, shining quality that no other signs possesses. You are the ones who, in spite of your own troubles, can keep us cheerful through these tumultuous times of transition.
Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn Both these major influences have been rumbling in the background, encroaching on the horizons of your life, for quite some time. It is almost as though you have become accustomed to their presence and even though you can’t trust them not to make problems or undermine your expectations, you now know how to cope with the challenges they create. You have become something of an expert at creating back-up plans in case your original scheme is sabotaged. Of course it is always stressful when this happens, and you still have to deal with the disappointment and heartache involved. But you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and give silent thanks for the fact that you are even wiser and more resilient than you were before.
Jupiter is moving into Pisces for a few weeks 13 May-28 July, adding to the impression that the world is a pretty crazy place. The best way to turn the energy to your favour would be by treating life as though it is your own personal movie channel. Cast yourself in the role of hero or heroine in a film script – whether it be comedy, documentary or high drama. See yourself moving through a sequence of scenes and acting out a series of adventures. It’s exciting and interesting, you’re learning new stuff, you’re having fun, you’re in control and you can switch the off button when it’s time to go to sleep. You are the director, producer and star of your own Life Story!
LEO LIFE PATH JOURNEY
The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are generally benign influences in your life, giving you easy access to the positive characteristics you have inherited through your ancestral line. These might include an optimistic, adventurous approach to life based on a certainty that everything will turn out alright in the end. Your role is to communicate this positivity to people who are struggling to comprehend what is going on. You can simplify the situation for them, by translating it into terms that they can easily understand. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.
