2014: Leo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
2014 Overview for all Leos.
A powerful year is ahead for you, dear Leo! Jupiter will move into your sign mid-July, stimulating a personal new beginning of sorts and upping your personal magnetism to new heights. Until then, you are in a strong period for healing and for doing inner work. Working on your communication skills is essential this year, particularly in the first half. You can be very active making connections and getting the word out now, but there can be some problems with impulsive or even brusque communications. This can also play out in terms of physical movement and transportation. Tone things down as much as possible, particularly on the job in January, and everywhere else from March to mid-May. some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through learning, communications, and connecting. You need to learn to listen to others so that you discover the value of true communication and exchange, and to see both sides of a situation. Learning to slow down, to be sensitive to social graces and networks, and to sensitize yourself to others’ needs and communications, will release you from nervous tension and help you achieve more happiness and inner balance. You are also challenged to spend more time in your own neighborhood, with siblings, at school, and with family. The first half of 2014 is powerful for healing and serving – and thoroughly enjoying the process! There is some tendency to overdo escapism, however, which should be watched. May is especially strong for finalizing a creative project or reaping the rewards from one, as well as better energy for family affairs. While family and/or home life can be felt as restrictive and confining at times again this year, in May, there is more enjoyment or pride in taking on and meeting family responsibilities. You’re doing a lot for others, and for the most part, you feel good about it, in the first half of the year. Perhaps your most important work in early 2014 is finding peace with the past. This will free you up for better enjoyment of the Jupiter in Leo transit that begins in the middle of July and runs well into 2015. There can be some lessened vitality or susceptibility to mild health issues. Home is not always the ideal place for escape and relaxation in recent years and in 2014. Making the home a healthier place, both physically and psychologically, will do much to improve this. There is more emotional sensitivity and openness this year as well. Increasingly, you’re experiencing a greater need to explore your inner needs and psychological makeup. Watch for neglect or even deception in money dealings, particularly with others. Some of you could be racking up too much debt, or a significant other may be a drain on your resources in some way.
The second half of the year is about awakening. Your desire to truly live life rather than simply going through the motions becomes consuming now. You project yourself with more confidence, and many of you are enjoying a newfound confidence in your own body and manner. You are letting go of the more immature behavior patterns of the past and becoming especially comfortable in your own skin. This is a great time for improving your manner and appearance, although this tends to come with very little effort – it’s a natural process. People truly like you, not necessarily for what you do, but for your personality, and they especially enjoy your company during this cycle. Personal pleasures, freedom, self-expression, and creativity are big on your list of priorities. Exciting energy is with many of you in your love life. You may be attracting foreigners, teachers, or intellectuals into your experience, and some of you can enter a long-distance romance or meet someone special through your travels. What is most important to you at this point in your life is a meeting of minds. You crave intellectual stimulation, and you’re hungry to learn and experience new things. In the first half of the year, love may be on the complicated side (for some, it’s absent). There may be a relationship that is private or sacrificial in some manner. From mid-year forward, there is a romantic revelation, blossoming, or awakening going on. Especially from September forward, there is excitement in your love life. It’s also a strong time for travel, education, and recognition of your creative talents. Full overview.
Until July 16th, Jupiter continues to move through your solar twelfth house. This transit brings benefits to activities that take place “behind the scenes” or otherwise privately, as well as in the soul. This is a cycle in which you become more compassionate, empathetic, and sensitive, or get in deeper touch with these traits.
Jupiter in the twelfth house is said to offer one spiritual protection. This is a time when you can rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies towards guilty feelings. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period. Charity, giving/donating anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most fulfilling during this cycle. Helping others actually helps you. Work that involves serving others may begin now and bring you much joy.
Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats may be particularly helpful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle. In general, help seems to be there when you need it. You are building or rebuilding your inner faith now.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. There may be some sacrifices required in your love life, or love may be private. Some might end a love affair during this time; others could be uncertain or would prefer to keep things quiet. Children may require more sacrifices this year for some. For some of you, there can be work on a creative project in relative solitude or privacy.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments, and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. January and April in particular can bring pressures from work, health, or simply inner restlessness. May is an especially strong month for strengthening ties with family as well as getting into better touch with your inner world and deeper feelings. It’s a time of healing, and a time for laying down solid plans for future stability.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from March 6th to July 16th.
Jupiter entering Leo on July 16th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar first house, lasting from July 2014 to August 2015. This exciting transit occurs only every twelve years or so, and brings improvements to your immediate environment and self-confidence, as well as increased generosity to your personality. Your personality is more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. This transit heightens your optimism and generosity, and the entire cycle has the potential for being a relaxed, fortunate, and hopeful time in your life.
You are greeting life with a fresh, can-do attitude. What happened in the past is not very important to you now – it’s the future you’re eyeing now. Events occur that help you to overcome problems that previously seemed challenging or even insurmountable – you have an altogether different perspective on life now, and are not inclined much to sweat the small stuff.
You create a distinct first impression on others, and your likeability increases. People thoroughly enjoy being around you, not because of what you do, but because of who you are. Furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit! You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence and other forms of excessive behavior. Jupiter can bring endings into your life in order for you to grow, although these are generally easy ones. A carefree attitude is different than a careless one, and the fine line between the two is definitely something to consider.
You feel considerably freer to be yourself right now, and others tend to accept you more readily. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once, although they are more likely due to Jupiter’s direct influence on your life. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life, and always watch for overdoing things or carelessness.
This can also be a time when more romantic and/or creative opportunities enter your life because Jupiter rules your sector of creativity, entertainment, hobbies, fun, children, and romance. You are especially fertile during this period. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue after a period of serving, supporting, and helping others. Especially from September forward, there can be a real feeling of liberation from attitudes or circumstances that may have limited or restricted you from being all that you could be.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from July 16th to December 8th. (This transit lasts until August 2015).
Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun/Ascendant from July 16th to August 31st. This is a feel-good transit that offers you opportunities to rise above petty concerns. It’s an excellent time to start new long-term projects. You might find that you feel more vital, confident, and optimistic about the future at this time. It’s a good time to resolve conflicts. You may be released from previously confining situations that have been stunting your growth or progress. Events may give your ego a boost, and you could be feeling quite vital and alive. Take advantage of this by promoting yourself or putting yourself “out there”. Ego gratification is the theme of this transit. This is the start of a “new you” – a more confident and faithful person.
Saturn transits your solar fourth house again this year. This transit that began in October 2012 ends in December, but only for a short time. It will resume and finish up from June 2015 to September 2015. Saturn here urges you to get serious about home, family, and domestic concerns. You are building your nest, not in a “plumping your nest” sort of way. In fact, you may be stripping some things away – perhaps even downsizing or de-cluttering – and adding structure to your domestic life.
You face issues surrounding your attachments to the past. Sometimes this manifests as literal re-organization of your home. Moving house is not typically associated with this transit as it would if, for example, Uranus was the transiting planet. If moves are made, you might encounter some resistance in yourself or the move might be a source of stress and worry.
This is not a time when you feel particularly brave in the outer world. However, reorganization in your home, and more importantly, in your soul, embodies the true nature of this transit. Many will go through a major “spring cleaning” inside. Limitations that came from early family conditioning will be brought to the fore. At first, there may be some frustration with your life to date, and how you have limited your opportunities because of early conditioning. A feeling of being alone and unsupported in life may dominate now. You may experience some distancing or frustrations regarding your parents. Family obligations may get in the way of your experience of pleasure and of the achievement of your personal goals. There may be some emotional distancing as well in your home. Your current living conditions may feel restrictive, limiting, too small or cramped (physically and/or emotionally). Delays and slowdowns may be experienced in the areas of health, mobility, and career. However, all of these things occur in order that you face your responsibilities, become more self-sufficient, and more organized. Ultimately, you are learning to rely on yourself and to take care of things that you may have previously neglected but that have undermined your confidence in yourself and in your life. The more acute elements of this transit are behind you in 2014.
Pluto is in your solar sixth house this year, and you will need to watch for straining yourself by working too hard. During the course of this very long-term transit, you will be learning about new ways of approaching health matters, particularly by uncovering root or core issues. Your work and habits are also evolving in important ways.
Uranus is in your solar ninth house this year. For those of you born August 1-2 , and those with a Leo Ascendant of 9 to 10 degrees, Uranus trines your Sun/Ascendant, and this transit is even more powerful. Pleasant surprises pepper your year ahead. You’re open to a certain amount of change and progress in 2014, and thus attract interesting and sometimes unusual events into your life. A few doors open to you as you express yourself more spontaneously this year.
Connections with a broader set of people and experiences can be the catalysts for your changing, more open-minded personal philosophy. Your interest in learning, exploring, and branching out is renewed and fresh. Listening to your gut will serve you well, as long as you’re not listening to that part of you that fears change. Fortunately, it’s easier to make necessary changes in your life without making too many waves now. You are drawn to new experiences and ideas, and they contribute to your growth. You have a twinkle in your eye this year! Your own originality and uniqueness is bound to come shining through. You are slightly more outspoken, daring, and progressive than usual now.
Events that occur this year tend to show you a different side of yourself, and could attract new people into your life. Any new friends or connections made are likely to be quite different than those you have had in the past. If you want to rid yourself of some unhealthy habits or past conditioning that has been undermining your confidence, this is the year to do it. Some of the people around you might be surprised at your newly found independence, but most will enjoy it.
New intellectual interests are likely this year. Unexpected or unusual experiences tend to enhance your understanding, and a new perspective on your life is in store. An unexpected opportunity for travel may present itself, or new opportunities to further your education could arise. If you do get a chance to travel, which could come up quite suddenly, unusual and eye-opening experiences may be in store for you. The people that you meet this year tend to stir you into new ways of thinking. You are less inclined towards a personal philosophy that is traditional now, and attracted to more avant-garde or simply progressive belief systems.
The influence of Neptune is similar to last year for those of you born July 31 to August 2 or with a Leo Ascendant of 8-10 degrees. Neptune continues to transit your solar seventh house, as it has been doing for a number of years, casting some “fog” over your partnerships. You may be meeting evasiveness in a partner or potential mates. A more accepting or spiritual approach to partnerships may have been a way of life in recent years. For those of you born July 23-30 or with a Leo Ascendant of 0-7-1/2 degrees, this influence is finished. Neptune begins or continues its lengthy transit through your solar eighth house this year. You may encounter some challenges regarding shared finances or property during this cycle. On the other hand, a loan or other form of support may come through unexpectedly, even in a mysterious fashion. Intimate relationships can be highly colorful, perhaps with spiritual undercurrents, but also a little confusing. The boundaries that are normally drawn between what is yours and what is mine may be blurred somewhat during this Neptune transit. A partner could have unsettled finances, and this could impact your own finances. Do be wary of anything that even slightly resembles fraud. Lending others money may be a lesson in frustration now.
The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar fourth house until mid-February 2014, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through your home and family. You need to let go of your tendency to over-manage your life and others’ lives, to relax your standards of perfection and achievement, and to avoid falling victim to living through the eyes of society instead of valuing our own personal (as opposed to professional/status) achievements. By working on your inner foundation and your “base”, success will ricochet back to your public and professional lives.
The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar third house from mid-February 2014 forward, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through learning, communications, and connecting. You need to learn to listen to others so that you discover the value of true communication and exchange, and to see both sides of a situation. Learning to slow down, to be sensitive to social graces and networks, and to sensitize yourself to others’ needs and communications, will release you from nervous tension and help you achieve more happiness and inner balance.
Eclipses in 2014 fall in your fourth and tenth houses, and in your third and ninth houses. It’s time to take steps to improve your family and home life. You may need to review and change your career goals as well. Career matters come to a head. You may be challenged to perform and prove your competence in 2014. Keeping everything aboveboard is critical. Finding a balance between your attention to home and career is the challenge now. As well, your attention is turned to the communications, educational, and transportation systems in your life. You will likely be expanding your horizons, possibly through contact with people from an entirely different background than yours, traveling, or pursuing a higher education. Your personal philosophy will be changing, and eclipses give you a push towards adopting beliefs that truly work for you in the real world. There may also be some sort of drama surrounding communication, modes of transportation, mobility, neighbors, or siblings that requires you to reorganize.
Again this year, and especially in April and December, some restlessness is likely this year, even though your overall state of mind is stable and productive. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. Finding a balance can be difficult, but necessary.
May and June are strong for personal, intimate, and private matters. Some of you could gain property or support from family. Connecting intimately with another person boosts your sense of security. There is strong energy for getting in touch with the past conditioning that makes you what you are today. Periods when you completely relax and retreat, removing yourself from everyday affairs, will be especially beneficial. There can be periods of release and healing in terms of past conditioning and family life. Help seems to be magically there when you need it, and your own awesome strength and faith is always there to draw upon. You could be working on a project in solitude or behind the scenes, and when you do come out with it, it could be quite profitable. You are learning that too much emphasis on the importance of material possessions can work against you. You are learning to put more value in the intangibles in life. It’s a time of healing, and a time for laying down solid plans for future stability.
From September forward, a spirit of progress, innovation, and moving forward is with you. Trips could be especially rewarding for you, and there may be sudden opportunities to expand your horizons. You have a strong interest in broadening your mental experiences in general, and finding expression of your personality through them, perhaps through higher education or exploring different philosophies of life. Romantic or creative opportunities might also be part of the picture now.
