There could be a lot of travel or study for you this month Leo and that is the case right from the get go. Jupiter and Uranus are in opposition on the 2nd and this could see you spoilt for choice when it comes to travel options. Jupiter is in your 3rd house and Uranus is in your 9th house, both of which can involve travel. The 3rd house is short distance trips that are close to home, such as an overnight stay somewhere. The 9th house is where we find international travel, so you might be planning a lot of small and big adventures for yourself. Now the 3rd house also rules communication and siblings and the 9th house study and dealings with foreigners, so keep these in mind and see what comes up for you on this day. An opposition can be about making a decision, having a range of options, or just feeling unsure about which course of action to take. It’s not bad news to have plenty of choices about what you do, much better than having none.
Venus will retrograde from the 4th in your 9th house. There may be some delayed gratification on the cards for you Leo and you will need to be patient in order to get what you want. The 9th house involves international travel, your studies, spirituality or your interactions with people who are overseas. Venus will retrograde until April 15th and can bring up some surprises in love, but you may have to wait to get what you want, or there may be obstacles in your way. Mars enters Taurus on the 9th your 10th house of business and career. Mars lights a rocket under you and pushes you to do as much as you can and to not take no for an answer. You are inspired to put your foot to the metal and get going. There may be something going on in your life that inspires you to move at a faster pace.
A Full Moon in Virgo on the 12th is in your 2nd house of money. This moon works with the Sun in Pisces and could see you changing your attitude to the importance of money, or even decide to push forward with some sort of contract. The 8th house also rules inheritances, so perhaps there is money coming to you in this way. You are very good at taking care of the details at this full moon thanks to a team up with Pluto in Capricorn. You have discipline and are more inclined to do things the ‘proper’ or traditional way in order to get ahead financially. However, some issues can come up for you around a romantic partner or your children as the moon clashes with Saturn in your 5th house. You may have to rethink when it comes to love and money.
Mercury enters Aries on the 13th in your 9th house. There is a lot of communication around travel, or your studies and if you are studying you can do very well at essays and exams. Then on the 20th the Sun also enters your 9th house and puts the spotlight on international travel or study. This is the ideal time to put a lot of effort into these areas of your life, or think about what you want from them. A New Moon in Aries on the 27th is also in your 9th house and this is when you start over in this area, or a new chapter opens up for you.
This new moon is also working with Venus and the Sun in your 9th house. You could find love coming to you courtesy of your studies, travels or when you find a spiritual connection with someone. The 9th house rules higher learning in all its forms and it is high minded, intellectual and full of bright and inspiring ideas. However, there is a lesson here when it comes to love or children as the moon clashes with Saturn in your 5th house. You may find that your romantic partner or children curb some of your travel plans or that there is a lesson to be learned in this area of your life in order to move forward. What you start now will be very important to you over the coming 6 months, in the sense that there will be a great deal of 9th house activity, or there will be much to gain from 9th house matters.
Jupiter and Pluto clash on the 30th and this causes some issues with your daily routine and your 3rd house. You may need to travel suddenly to help a sibling with something, or find that travel interferes with your day-to-day life. Communication could also be difficult today and some of it may be waylaid or not be accurate due to an oversight of details.
Mercury moves into Taurus on the 31st, your 10th house business and career. Keep in mind that Mercury will retrograde from April 9th and the effects have already started. It won’t be easy to move ahead with career and business matters over the coming month and you shouldn’t make firm commitments to anything in this area until the second week of May. Keep your options open and hold off making a decision until then.
4th - 10th July
The moon in Leo on the 6th and 7th gives you a taste of the party atmosphere the first half of July has in store for you. Get out with your friends, organize a party or make the effort to meet new people. You need to be amongst people and having plenty of fun, make sure you accept invitations that come your way. Keep track of your money, with a clash between Mars and the moon on the 7th, having fun, shouldn’t break the budget.

This year two pairs of eclipses occur, and one of the eclipses in each pair will occur in your sign Leo. The aspects in these eclipses do touch on your 5th house but the second one, in August, appears to be more closely related to a creative endeavour than to your business or career.
The first of these eclipses occurs February 10th in your 3rd house. On this day a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo will see communication in your love life go wonderfully Leo. There is also a lot of emphasis on your 9th house and you could be travelling internationally, or hear news from a long distance love that pleases you.
This eclipse is followed on February 26th with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 9th house. You are either doing something with your studies, related to international travel, or that involves people who are foreigners and it is going well. But this second one isn’t touching on your 5th house. The next pair of eclipses occur in August. The first one is a Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Aquarius and your 7th house. Money and partnership is the big news around this one. You may find money comes to you thanks to a romantic or business partner. Mark this one as a day to watch how money is good for you, whether it be because of your lover, or someone you are working with.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs in Leo on August 21st and this one is in your 10th house. We see Saturn in your 5th house working with this moon, so a lover could increase your social standing, or be crucial to your career. But the success of a creative project seems more likely.
Saturn retrogrades from April 6th to August 25th in your 5th house. This can see you becoming much more serious about love, and finding that you have more patience than you give yourself credit for. You want to move slowly and savour romantic experiences, and want to live every experience to it’s fullest. If you find yourself just wanting to linger in a moment and not to have it pass you by, embrace that and don’t rush off to the next thing.
Getting to know a lover now is like peeling away myriad layers, and there is determination to do so slowly and not miss anything. Creatively, you take things slowly and are in no rush to get things finished. You would rather make something brilliant than make something quickly. At the end of April love undergoes a change that you could find difficult.
Something needs to be healed either in you, or in someone else and you will find that process is difficult with a clash between Saturn and Chiron. This is one of those moments where patience and a willingness to take things slowly will pay off. The full moon in Sagittarius, June 9th is a big day for romance and love and you have a number of aspects that you will love.
However, there is emphasis again to take things slowly, and to be patient as a story unfolds. Toward the end of August Saturn turns direct in your 5th house and you see things start to move along more quickly. There is a gorgeous aspect for you on August 27th when Jupiter and Saturn team up and communication with your lover is working really well. If you are looking to meet someone new, keep this date in mind. A sibling could be the source of an introduction, or you may be travelling a short distance from home and make a connection that has potential.
In the first days of November we see you behaving very patiently again with a lover or date and then Mercury enters the fray to help you with the words you need to build a romance, or to make it better. The Sun joins in mid November, followed by Venus on December 1st and you are either head over heals with rose tinted glasses, or the centre of attention with many admirers who want to get to know you better. Mercury will retrograde in your 5th house through the remainder of 2017 so there could be some misunderstandings on the romantic front. However you have a New moon December 18 in your 5th house which allows for a fresh start, a new chapter, or to take a step to make a firmer commitment to someone special.
Mars will be in your 10th house from early March and Mercury will join it right at the end of the month. I suggest getting a lot done over March as Mercury will retrograde in your 10th house in April and it won’t be the time to move ahead or make new career initiations. The New moon in Taurus April 26th is a big one for you on the career and business front, but it’s when Mercury is back in direct motion and back in Taurus from mid May that you really hit your stride.
A lot of what you do over this month could be private, or involve secret negotiations. By early June Venus is in your 10th house and if your career involves beauty, the arts or doing something to make things aesthetically pleasing, you can do particularly well until early July. You get even more good career news thanks to Mercury when it arrives in your 10th house in early July and it is followed mid month by Mars, the Sun and a stunning new moon which will open up fresh prospects for professionally. There can be an issue at this new moon around people you are dealing with from overseas, any international travel you need to undertake or with your studies. Watch for issues in your 9th house that come up on these days as whatever occurs will be unexpected. You may have to change your plans due to this news, but you do come out of this smelling like roses with the New moon forming a conjunction to Mars in your 10th house.
The biggest news career wise this year comes with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in your sign on August 21st. This one has good stars for your finances, your creativity or love life and for studies or any dealings you have internationally, or with people from overseas. I love this day for you Leo and it is sitting in the same time period where you have some very good money stars thanks to Mars. Mercury will be retrograde over this eclipse so I think what you will see here is a reward for your work, or just good news that will set you up for good times ahead in your career or business. This isn’t the time to be signing any deals or moving forward on contracts or major purchases. The one exception is if you were born under Mercury retrograde. You can find it works in your favour if this is the case, so check your birth chart to see if this applies to you. Doubly so if you were born with Mercury retrograde in Virgo.
A full moon in Taurus, November 4th brings some results from something started in your business or career around the new moon in Taurus at the end of April. With career aspects taking a backseat after this date you may decide to take an extended holiday, or just take it easier for the remainder of 2017.
The money aspects for you this year aren’t as important as building on or gaining success in your career. The wins you have financially are largely related to your hard work, but it’s the cherry on top, rather than your main motivation for doing well in your career. A full moon in Virgo, March 12 brings some of the best money aspects all year and it’s your hard work, attention to detail and willingness to try something new that pays off.
Love is difficult around this moon and you should watch any situations where you are mixing money and your heart. If you have children you can also find that there are expenses falling due now related to them, or a creative project may not bring as big a pay off as you were expecting. We don’t see any more big money news for you until September, although I would caution you to take care with money over August.
Mercury will retrograde in Virgo over this period and this can bring confusion and delay with money matters. It’s not a good time to buy big ticket items or sign contracts, if you do it’s not going to be exactly as you would have hoped. When Mars enters Virgo in early September, you have motivation to build your assets or find new ways to make money, but you should wait until mid September to sign off on anything. By mid month you have Venus in Virgo and this is followed by a new moon in Virgo. This is your moment to start something new related to finances, to move ahead with a contract, or to make new money goals for the months ahead.
