You begin your year with your 6th house of health and work very powerful: 50 per cent, sometimes 60 per cent of the planets are either there or moving through there. This is a great month for jobseekers. There are many opportunities. You are in demand. Even those already employed will have opportunities for overtime or second jobs. There is also a strong focus on health. Though health is good until the 20th this focus will stand you in good stead after then, when health needs more attention.
As we mentioned in the yearly report, you have two long-term planets – powerful ones – in stressful aspect with you. On the 20th short-term planets join the party, increasing the stress. So make sure to get enough rest at this time, and enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Though health and energy could be better after the 20th nice things are happening. The Sun enters your 7th house of love and you begin a yearly love and social peak. You are more popular this month as you are putting others first and go out of your way for others. You take a proactive attitude to love. You make things happen. If you like someone that person knows it. You’re not playing games. But love is complicated – perhaps you like it that way. Leo loves drama. If there is none, they will create some. So, if you are in a relationship you’ll need to work harder to keep things together. You and the beloved don’t seem in agreement. You might think that you’re acting in his or her best interest, but the beloved might not agree. Still, you should be successful in love. It is important to you and you give it much focus, and you’re willing to overcome all the challenges that arise.
Your financial planet, Mercury, goes retrograde from the 14th onwards. Try to wrap up important purchases or investments before then. After the 14th work to get clarity in your finances. Mercury’s retrograde won’t stop earnings, but only slow things down a bit. Make sure to handle all the details of financial transactions perfectly. This will minimize delays.

Your financial planet Mercury goes forward on the 4th and thus finances improve. Until the 15th he will be in Capricorn, your 6th house. This has many good points. The financial judgement will be sound – conservative (perhaps too conservative for your taste). It favours long-term savings and investment plans. Money comes through work – the old-fashioned way.
On the 15th Mercury enters Aquarius and you become more experimental in financial matters. This transit favours partnerships, start-ups, and the high-tech and online worlds. Investors will have a good feeling for these sectors. You probably spend more on technology, but can earn from this as well. Mercury travels with Pluto on the 10th and 11th. This can bring a job opportunity (or a second job). Mercury will be in adverse aspect with Uranus on the 23rd and 24th and there can be some financial disagreements with the spouse, partner or current love. You may need to make some financial adjustments.
Love is still happy this month – and still full of drama. You’re still in a yearly love and social peak until the 18th, so the social life is active. Your social grace will help the bottom line as well. A partnership or joint venture opportunity can occur. The Sun travels with Saturn on the 3rd and 4th. For singles this can bring a romantic opportunity with a co-worker or someone involved in your health.
On the 18th the Sun enters your 8th house. Jupiter has been there since the beginning of the year, so the spouse, partner or current love is enjoying even greater prosperity than last month. You seem very involved in this. With the 8th house so strong – and full of beneficent planets – there is more than usual sexual activity. It is a wonderful time for personal transformation: giving birth to the you that you want to be. But before this can happen, old, effete material – whether they be possessions or mental and emotional patterns – need to go. It is a month for growing by eliminating the unnecessary. It’s not about adding things to yourself. That will come later on. So it is good to explore your thinking and feeling and see what is destructive, and get rid of it.

Both Mars and Venus move into your 7th house of love on the 6th, making the 7th house very strong. So, although it is not a yearly love and social peak, the social life is active. These transits bring opportunities for love affairs but not necessarily serious committed love. Mars rules your 5th house of fun, so it is more about having fun with people. Love is an amusement, like going to the movies or theatre. Still it is fun for what it is.
The month ahead looks prosperous. Mercury moves speedily this month, signalling fast financial progress and confidence. The Sun will travel with Jupiter from the 4th to the 6th, which should bring a nice payday. It is also good for speculations, though you should never do these things automatically – only by using intuition. Still, you are more risk-taking than usual. Mercury, your financial planet, will also travel with Jupiter on the 20th and 21st. This too brings financial expansion.
Health needs watching this month – though you will see major improvement from the 20th onwards. In the meantime, four – sometimes five – planets are in stressful alignment with you. As always, make sure to maintain high energy levels, and enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Your 8th house is strong until the 20th, so keep in mind our discussion of this last month. A new birth tends to be a messy business. But the end result is good. With the Sun in the 8th house until the 20th many of you are confronting death on a psychological level. It probably won’t touch you physically – though you can have close calls – but it is going to force you to become more serious about life. That’s the point.
On the 20th the Sun enters your 9th house and stays there for the rest of the month. All the planets are moving forward and the Sun is in dynamic Aries. Events move quickly. The pace of life is faster than usual. Many of you will travel to foreign countries. College-level students will do well in their studies. There are religious and philosophical breakthroughs happening.

The career is going very well this month – very active and successful. The demands are hard, but the rewards are good. However, a lunar eclipse on the 16th, which occurs in your 4th house of home and family, will force you to pay more attention to this area.
The Moon is the generic ruler of home and family, and the lunar eclipse in the 4th house merely emphasizes things. There are dramas among the family and especially with a parent or parent figure. Passions will run high at home. There can be repairs needed in the home as hidden flaws come to light. Siblings and sibling figures have financial dramas. The Moon is the spiritual planet in your chart, so every lunar eclipse brings spiritual changes – changes of teachings, teachers and practice. Usually this is a good thing. These changes tend to come from inner growth – it is a sign of progress. There can be shake-ups and disruptions in spiritual or charitable organizations that you’re involved with, and dramas in the lives of guru figures. The dream life will tend to be hyperactive this period, but shouldn’t be given too much weight. The images you see – and they’ll probably be disturbing – are merely psychic flotsam and jetsam caused by the eclipse. Friends experience financial shake-ups and will need to make changes.
This eclipse impacts Saturn, your health planet, and there could be health scares – but always get a second opinion on these matters. In the coming months there will be important changes to the health regime. Such an impact on Saturn often signals job changes and dramas and shake-ups in the workplace. If you employ others there can be employee turnover now (and in the coming months).
Health needs watching this month and you should take it as easy as possible. This is so until the 20th but especially around the eclipse period. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Finances are good but complicated. Your financial planet, Mercury, goes retrograde on the 10th. Try to wrap up important purchases or investments before then. After the 10th take a wait-and-see attitude on important financial decisions.

Though health still needs keeping an eye on, the month ahead is successful. The Sun in your 9th house is a happy transit. There is optimism and expansion of your horizons. Foreign travel could have happened last month, but, if not, it can still happen in the month ahead.
The action this month is in the career. Uranus has been in your 10th house for some years now. On the 20th the Sun will enter here and you will begin a yearly career peak. You seem very successful. You seem above everyone in your world. Even younger Leos who don’t yet have careers will aspire – and perhaps behave – as if they were top dog, in charge.
When the ruler of your Horoscope is at the top of the chart, people feel that ‘I’m born to rule – born to be in charge – I belong here at the top’. Many celebrities and politicians have this aspect in their birth charts.
A solar eclipse on the 30th occurs in your 10th house, bringing career shake-ups – shake-ups in your corporate hierarchy or in your industry. Often it brings changes in the rules and regulations that impact your industry or company. Thus the rules of the game change. Often such an eclipse brings life-changing events to bosses, elders, parents or parent figures. All these shake-ups seems to open up opportunities for you. They create uncertainty, but they open doors.
Every solar eclipse has a strong effect on you because the eclipsed planet is your ruling planet. Thus there will be a need to redefine yourself, to upgrade your image, self-concept and personal appearance. This is basically a healthy thing. We are growing, evolving beings and our thinking should reflect this growth. So, you will be changing the way that you think about yourself and the way that you want others to think about you. This will lead to wardrobe changes, changes of hairstyle and overall look in the coming months.
Reduce your schedule during the eclipse period. Parents, bosses and elders should also take it easy.
Health, as we mentioned, needs watching. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. The problem is that your 6th house is empty, and you could be tempted to ignore things.

The two planets involved with your 9th house had their solstice last month, continuing into the month ahead. Mars, the ruler of the 9th house, began his solstice on May 27 and this goes on until the 2nd. Jupiter, the occupant of your 9th house (and its generic ruler) began his solstice on May 12 and this goes on until the 11th. They pause in the heavens (in latitudinal motion) and then change direction (in latitude). So college-level students have a pause in their affairs and then change direction. The same holds true with legal issues (if you’re involved with those things).
Health and energy are much improved over last month. If there were problems in May you see a remarkable turnaround now. Perhaps some pill, potion or therapy will get the credit, but working behind it is the change in planetary energy.
Most of your career goals (the short-term ones at least) have been achieved and you can now get involved in the fruits of career success – being involved with friends and group activities that befit your status. The power this month is in your 11th house of friends. Many fondest hopes and wishes will come to pass and, as night follows day, you will form new ‘fondest hopes and wishes’. There will be a greater interest in science and technology. Your understanding of these things will expand. Many people have their Horoscopes done when the 11th house is strong: the 11th house rules astrology. It is a good time to buy high-tech equipment this month too, especially after the 14th. Your purchases will be sound.
Finances are improved this month. Your financial planet starts to move forward on the 4th and will be strongly positioned. Until the 14th Mercury will be in your 10th house of career. This often signals pay rises, official or unofficial. Mercury is strong when he is at the top of the chart and thus earning power is stronger. On the 14th Mercury moves into Gemini, his own sign and house, and he’s very strong there too. Very comfortable. All of this signals enhanced earning power.
Mars and Jupiter are travelling together these days. This indicates positive achievement – positive actions. Foreign travel is likely.

Mars will cross your Mid-heaven and enter your 10th house on the 5th. Normally this would indicate a degree of aggressiveness and combativeness in the career. Perhaps this will happen, but in your chart Mars is a beneficent planet; he is the ruler of your 9th house, so perhaps you are combative, but the results are good. There is career-related travel this month.
Mars will square Pluto on the 1st and 2nd so family members and especially a parent or parent figure should be more mindful on the physical plane. Perhaps surgery is recommended to them. (It doesn’t mean that it has to happen – but it can be recommended.) Towards the end of the month – on the 30th and 31st – Mars travels with Uranus. This too is a dynamic aspect. Be more mindful on the physical plane – this applies to the spouse, partner or current love as well. This transit can bring a foreign trip with the beloved.
The month ahead is spiritual. The action is in your 12th house of spirituality. It is normal to want solitude – aloneness – under this kind of transit, and there is nothing wrong with you if you do. There is a need to feel your own aura and get comfortable with yourself – to be comfortable in your own skin. You will be more involved with charities and charitable giving. Your financial planet will be in your 12th house from the 5th to the 19th, signalling that financial intuition will be good. Financial guidance will come in dreams or through astrologers, psychics, tarot readers and/or spiritual channels. You will learn that the Divine is very concerned about your financial well-being. (Only, you have to do things its way.)
On the 23rd the Sun will move into your sign and your 1st house, and you begin one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. Time to enjoy the pleasures of the body and senses. Time to get the body into the shape that you want. Time to do things that enhance your physical appearance.
Finances are good this month. Your financial planet will move into your own sign on the 19th, which brings windfalls and financial opportunities. You spend on yourself and you have the image of a prosperous person. People see you this way. The money people in your life are devoted to you.
Health improves after the 23rd but needs attention before that. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

A happy and prosperous month ahead Leo, enjoy.
You’re still very much in a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 23rd. You look good. The personal appearance shines. The Sun in your sign brings charisma and star quality (it enhances your innate star quality and makes it stronger). Venus in your sign brings beauty and grace to the image and a sense of style. Mercury (which will be there until the 4th) brings financial windfalls and opportunity. You have abundant self-confidence and self-esteem. You are more of a Leo now than ever.
Health is much improved this month – especially from the 20th onwards when Mars leaves his stressful aspect with you. Those who are for you (planetary-wise) are stronger than those who are against you.
Retrograde activity among the planets increases this month, and by the end of the month 50 per cent of the planets will be moving backwards. Next month the percentage will increase even further. So, the pace of life is slower these days, which is not the way you like things. It is a time for learning and practising patience, and for being more perfect in all that you do. This will minimize – though not eliminate – the many delays and glitches going on.
Prosperity increases this month too. It was good last month but gets even better now. On the 4th your financial planet, Mercury, moves into the money house – his own sign and house. He is strong there and acts with more power on your behalf. This signals increased earning power. On the 23rd the Sun, the ruler of your Horoscope, also enters the money house and you begin a yearly financial peak. The ruler of the Horoscope in the 2nd house is considered very fortunate.
When Mercury enters Virgo on the 4th we will have a Grand Trine in the Earth signs – a very fortunate configuration. This will bring a down-to-earth attitude to life and an ability to create ease on the material plane. Your organizational and management skills will be enhanced. Financial judgement will be better as well.
Love will improve after the 23rd. The 10th and 11th seem stressful for love, but such stress is short term.

Retrograde activity hits its maximum extent for the year. From the 10th onwards 60 per cent of the planets will be moving backwards. So, like last month – in fact, even more so than last month – patience, patience, patience. Retrogrades can be used to your advantage, providing good times to get clear on your goals and plans in various departments of your life. Once clarity is attained you can move forward with confidence when the planets start to move forward.
In spite of all the retrogrades, many nice things are happening. The Grand Trine in Earth that began last month continues all this month. In addition, we will have another Grand Trine – and it’s highly unusual to have two at the same time – in the Air signs. Together they will enhance both your practical abilities (Earth) and your intellectual and communication skills (Air).
You’re still in the midst of a yearly financial peak until the 23rd. The only problem with finance is Mercury’s retrograde, which begins on the 10th. This retrograde will have a stronger effect than the previous ones in the past year. Because it happens when many other planets are retrograde there is a cumulative effect. So, try to finalize important purchases and investments before the 10th. After the 10th take a wait-and-see attitude to finance. Mercury’s retrograde won’t stop earnings – they should still be strong – but it will delay things and bring glitches.
Though your love planet, Uranus, is now retrograde and important love decisions shouldn’t be made, love seems happy this month. Your love planet is receiving nice aspects. So singles will date and have good romantic opportunities. But there’s no need to rush down the aisle just yet. Let love take its course. The 10th and 11th seem especially good for love.
Health is good this month. With your health planet Saturn retrograde for many months now, avoid making major changes to the health regime. There are job opportunities coming this month, but they should be examined carefully. Things might not be as they are being presented.
On the 23rd, as the Sun enters your 3rd house the focus shifts to communication and intellectual interests. Students below college level will do well. They seem focused on their studies. This is an excellent time to read, study, write and pursue your intellectual interests. Siblings and sibling figures are having a good month.

Health is good this month, but it needs watching from the 23rd onwards. A solar eclipse on the 25th also seems stressful, so make sure you relax and reduce your schedule from the 23rd onwards – and especially around the eclipse period. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
This eclipse occurs in your 4th house of home and family, bringing personal dramas in the lives of family members – and especially to a parent or parent figure. People who are ‘like’ family to you can also be affected. Family members should also reduce their schedules during this time. The eclipse can impact on the family’s reputation and status. There are shake-ups here. Siblings and sibling figures in your life are forced to make important financial changes. There can be repairs needed in the home as hidden flaws come to light. The dream life will be hyperactive but shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Disturbing images can be cleared and discharged with ‘touch and let go’ (see my A Technique for Meditation) or by writing them through.
This eclipse can have some positive therapeutic effects. It will unearth long-buried memories and perhaps traumas that ordinarily wouldn’t surface. They will arise spontaneously. Thus you can deal with them and clear them.
Home and family are where the focus should be this month. The night side of your Horoscope, though not dominant, is as strong as it will ever be this year. So it is good to shift some attention here. The day side of the Horoscope is still dominant, but not as much as at the beginning of the year. The image that comes to me is that it is now midnight in your year; you should be sleeping and engaged in the activities of night. But you keep waking up – you keep being preoccupied with day activities. You sleep for a while and then wake up. You dream for a while and wake up. This goes on and on.
Love seems stressful from the 23rd onwards. You and the beloved seem distant – perhaps not physically but psychologically. You see things in opposite ways. There is a need to bridge your differences.

The main headline this month is a very powerful lunar eclipse on the 8th. It has a strong effect on you and on the world in general: it is not only a total eclipse, but it impacts many other planets. Thus it shakes up many areas of your life. So take it nice and easy during that period. Do what needs to be done, but anything non-essential is better off being rescheduled. Spend more quiet time at home. Read a book or watch a movie. Best of all, meditate.
The eclipse occurs in your 10th house of career, and so brings career changes. People don’t often change their entire career under this kind of eclipse – though sometimes they do – but they pursue things in a different way. There can be shake-ups in the hierarchy of your company, or shake-ups in your industry, that change things. Sometimes the government changes the rules and regulations for your industry. Sometimes there are dramas in the lives of bosses – personal dramas – and this changes things. (Parents and parent figures are also having personal dramas, and they should take a nice easy schedule too.)
The Moon is your spiritual planet, and so the eclipse is announcing spiritual changes. You change your practice, perhaps your teachings or teachers – more importantly, you change your attitudes. There are dramas and shake-ups in spiritual or charitable organizations that you’re involved with. There are dramas in the lives of guru figures. Friends are making important financial changes.
As mentioned, other planets are affected by this eclipse – Venus, Mercury and Uranus. The impact on Venus reinforces what we mentioned earlier about career changes. But it also affects siblings and sibling figures in your life. They are having personal dramas. There can be disruptions in your neighbourhood and with neighbours. Students below college level have dramas at school and can change their educational plans.
The impact on Uranus shows that love is getting tested. There can be dramas in the personal life of the spouse, partner or current love. Be patient with the beloved during this period.
The impact on Mercury indicates that there are important financial changes happening for you. Your financial thinking was not realistic. You had assumptions that were not correct. A course correction is necessary.

Now that the excitement of last month’s eclipse is somewhat abated, you can focus on the joy of life. You’re in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure peak this month until the 22nd. Leo is naturally very creative, and this period even more so.
Health is good – especially until the 22nd. If you want to enhance it further do so in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Joy is of itself a powerful healing force, and you have plenty of joy this month.
Three planets are ‘out of bounds’ this month. Mars has been ‘out of bounds’ since October 24 and will remain so all this month. Venus is ‘out of bounds’ from the 2nd to the 24th and Mercury from the 1st to the 22nd. This is highly unusual and seems to be a trend in the world. People are going outside the box – outside their normal orbit. It seems fashionable these days. For you personally it shows a need to go outside your normal sphere in finance, career, and in your religious studies. There are no answers to be found within your normal orbit and you must seek them elsewhere.
Foreign travel seems to be happening this month as Jupiter moves into your 9th house on the 21st – this time for the long haul. However, there can be delays involved as Mars, the ruler of your 9th house, is retrograde. Next month seems better for travelling than this one.
Your 6th house of health and work becomes a house of power once again on the 22nd – though you will feel it even before then. This is a great period for jobseekers – there are many opportunities. Even those already employed will have opportunities for overtime and second jobs. You’re in a work mood this month. So, it is good to harness this urge to do those boring, detail-oriented jobs that you keep putting off.
Finances are basically good this month, but get complicated after the 24th as Mercury goes retrograde. This retrograde won’t be nearly as strong in its effect as the last one as most of the planets are moving forward. Still, it can bring delays or glitches in the financial life. The good thing here is that Mercury will be in the sign of Capricorn from the 7th onwards. So your financial judgement is sound and down to earth – until the 24th.
