Leo 23rd July - 22nd August
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2019
Although this promises to be a busy and
productive time for you on the work front, this
isn’t the time to take on too much. It’s a time to
work smarter, not longer and to focus on where you’re
most effective. In the meantime, be open to opportunities to
explore pastures new and exploit new and innovative ways to do what you do. You’ll want to make the most of the favourable opportunities for fun, pleasure and romance in 2019 but you could blow a fuse if you attempt to burn the candle at both ends. Artistic activity is well-starred so be prepared to roll up your sleeves and express your creative talents. If you feel drawn to explore the transcendental, mystical or occult, be prepared to do so mindfully, and make space and time for magic and mystery in your life.
Jupiter's influence in 2019
Jupiter takes twelve years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, spending approximately 12 months in each zodiac sign. Until December, Jupiter will be in Sagittarius, the area of your solar chart associated with entertainments, romance, self-indulgence and those people and things, interests and hobbies that give you pleasure and an opportunity to express yourself and your talents. Overall, this position of Jupiter bodes well for your artistic, fun-loving, romantic side. This placement of Jupiter in Sagittarius in harmonious alignment with Leo, your Sun sign, is an indicator of increased inspiration, creativity and fertility so be extra careful in your intimate relations unless you plan otherwise.
Saturn's influence in 2019
Saturn will be in Capricorn until December 2020. Capricorn is the area of your solar chart associated with work, chores, routine activities, service to others. This may simply indicate an increased workload, more chores or things to do and increased responsibility. Because this area of your solar chart is also associated with your health or lack thereof, Saturn’s presence here could indicate health issues that are connected with overwork, being tired, worn out, heaviness and for some perhaps a touch of melancholy. Constructively, you can get a lot done while Saturn is in Capricorn so this would be a good time to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into projects, activities and work that is important to you. It may be easier to exercise greater disciplined concerning your health, diet and exercise too now so it is also a good time to adopt a spiritual discipline and take care of yourself, mind, body and soul.
The Nodes of the Moon's influence in 2019
The two Nodes of the Moon, the North Node and the South Node, take approximately 19 years to travel the twelve signs of the zodiac, spending about 18 months in each zodiac sign. The Nodes are always opposite one another. The North is a place to move towards, where you can expand and grow and where opportunities await you. The South is a place of release and letting go. The South Node can indicate an area of your life where you may have become a creature of habit and perhaps a little too comfortable. Throughout 2019 the North Node will be in Cancer and the South Node will therefore be in the sign opposite Cancer, Capricorn. Canceris one of the more complex area of your solar chart, a place of rest, retreat and seclusion. Capricorn is the zone of your solar chart associated with your day-to-day work and routine as well as your health, or lack thereof. Therefore, consider periodically taking a step back, to retreat, to reduce your commitments to those activities, people and work that are most effective and productive. Meanwhile, be prepared to reduce time and energy spent on those areas that do not support you or your life. This can be a time to turn inwards, to work on yourself or your own creative projects with minimum distractions or interference. A time to rest, recuperate and heal yourself, to create time and space in your life where you can recharge your batteries but also to make room for the unexpected, to surrender to a greater power that may alter the flow and direction of your life, if you let it. This is also be a time to be discreet, to keep your private life private, to wait and be patient before disclosing or discussing your more serious long-term plans and intentions.
Uranus's influence in 2019
Uranus takes about 84 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, spending approximately 7 years in each sign. Uranus is associated with change and upheaval, often sudden and unexpected, for some it can represent a wake-up call. Uranus wakes us up from our narrow view of things and brings with it a new perspective, new opportunities and new people. Slow moving, like Neptune and Pluto, Uranus represents a background influence until it triggers sensitive points in our horoscope. From the spring of 2019 Uranus will move out of Aries and into Taurus, not returning to Aries for another 80 years or so. With Uranus in Taurus, the area of your solar chart associated with your work, vocation and dealings with those in positions of power and influence, nothing is set in stone. Uranus can bring change and upheaval, freedom and release, uncertainty and new insight. With Uranus in such a prominent zone of your solar chart, be open to new, innovative and progressive ways to do what you do over the next twelve months. This is a time to embrace change rather than avoid it. Those Leo’s born in July will experience Uranus most strongly in 2019. Those born in August can look forward to meeting Uranus over the next few years.
Neptune's influence in 2019
Neptune will be in Pisces, one of the money zones of your solar chart, until 2025 when Neptune enters Aries. Neptune can make life complicated if we don’t pay attention. Therefore, it would be advisable to reduce and simplify your financial dealings with others and minimise reliance on credit or other financial agreements or arrangements. This especially important since there is the possibility you may not be entirely sure what you’re getting yourself into, or that the facts and figures may be subject to change and not be as they seem. Avoid get-rich-quick and buy-now-pay-later schemes and think twice before bailing out someone who appears to have holes in their pockets. This could be a fruitful time to explore life’s deeper mysteries and the great beyond. Nevertheless, avoid spiritual organisations, activities, enterprises and individuals that don’t insist you keep at least one foot on the ground or those more concerned with money than enlightenment.
Pluto's influence in 2019
Pluto will be in Capricorn until 2026 and represents another long-term, background influence for Leo. Capricorn is the area of your solar chart associated with your work, chores, day-to-day routine and dealings with subordinates as well as your health, or lack thereof. The emphasis from Pluto suggests that work-wise, the more you adopt an attitude of service, rather than identifying too much with what you do and how you’re perceived, and the more you’re prepared to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, the more you’ll benefit and create options and possibilities for yourself later. You may also find the more you’re able to work with and manage others, to share the rewards, resources and the spotlight, the more effective you’ll become both inside and outside the work place. If Pluto has something to say about your health and wellbeing, it may be about appreciating how your physical body has it limits and, as vehicle for your soul, needs to be maintained, cared for and respected if it is to get you where you want to go.
