Areas of Expansion in 2015 for Leo: Personality, Body Image, Attitudes, Money, Possessions, Resources
Your Leo 2015 Horoscope, Jupiter Profile points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until August 11, 2015, your personality, image, and confidence in yourself continue to expand to new levels with Jupiter continuing to transit your sign since July 2014. You are seeing whole new possibilities. Your vision of life is panoramic.
If you’ve done your inner “work” well, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
You are hungry for knowledge and for gaining new experiences. This cycle is a strong one for creative and romantic expression, particularly because Jupiter rules your sector of romance, creativity, entertainment, children, and fun and entertainment. 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.
You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, for which you are now enjoying some level of freedom from), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You won’t feel much like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others, and you’re considerably more confident about expressing the playful, creative, and fun side to your personality.
Until June and particularly from April to June is especially strong for creative self-expression, finding yourself through travel or connections to different cultures and perspectives, and monetizing a hobby or pastime. New ventures can be especially successful. Life itself may not be changing significantly, but your own attitudes towards it and your perspective are entirely different – you’re seeing opportunities where you previously saw obstacles.
Potential negatives: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness. See to it that these things don’t ruin an otherwise excellent period. As well, in your desire to “start over”, watch that you don’t blind yourself to responsibilities.
There might also be times, especially in February and May, when others may be put off by your newfound displays of freedom and independence, or when you have troubles with self-discipline, budgets, and limits. In August, family life and obligations or heaviness in your personal life can conflict with your desire to grow and expand. Otherwise, this can be a time of opportunity. You might choose to pursue a hobby or creative activity with great passion. There can be a strong sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions.
From August 11th onward, money, personal possessions, and self-worth begin to expand and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
This is a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You are likely to make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period.
This cycle that will be in influence until September 2016 is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You might also more easily attract support from others (but be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan – spend wisely). You should certainly watch for overspending. Mid-October is better for making big-ticket item purchases, if necessary.
Potential negatives: Be on the alert for an attitude towards money that is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future, and this tendency can be especially strong in September and November. There can be a conflict over someone else’s resources or money, issues with others squandering your resources, or a frustrating clash of values. Watch for over-indulgence. Be extra careful if lending or borrowing.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work. From October forward especially, opportunities to attract improved conditions in your work or services and financial picture can arise. New business ventures can be especially successful. You might also take stronger interest in the healing of body, mind, and spirit.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Home, Family, Inner Foundations, romance, Children, Creativity, Entertainment, Recreation, Self-Expression
Your Leo 2015 Horoscope, Saturn Profile, points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary “slimming down” in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
From June 14 to September 17, 2015, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are associated with the sector of your chart that rules home, family, your roots, domestic activities, living conditions, and security. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you for part of this year, from June 14th to September 17th. This is the final haul! It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Leo.
Tests can come to your family life during this period. The responsibilities and demands of domestic life can run high. There can be a feeling that others are not as sympathetic to you, or that they leave you to your own defenses during this period. In truth, you are learning how to stand on your own two feet, as well as to meet your responsibilities and to fix whatever it is that you have let slide in the past. At the end of this cycle, you’ll have built a stronger foundation.
The more difficult potentials of this transit may be realized in June and early August especially, when Saturn is challenged by Pluto and Jupiter respectively. The demands of family can be felt most strongly in late July and early August, when the desire for freedom is powerful. If you are expanding too quickly, now is the time to check the foundations.
You can be filled with desire, or circumstances create a need, for more structure in your home life. For some of you, working from home is a strong possibility now.
Until June 14th, and then from September 17th onward, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are associated with the sector of your chart that governs creativity, dating and romance, pleasure, children, hobbies, and creative pastimes. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence is new for you, having only begun December 23rd, 2014, and will be with you until December, 2017. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Leo. This year, those born in the first four days of Leo are most directly affected.
Tests can come to your romantic life during this cycle. For those of you who are single, there can be some reluctance to enter into light-hearted romantic relationships. If you do, you do so cautiously, and you are attracted to more mature or stable people during this cycle. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might appear to be slim.
Those of you who are dating might feel some loneliness, as it can be hard to find what you are looking for at this time. An existing romance may be tested but strong ones strengthen further. Those Leos who are in committed partnerships could find the romantic or fun element of the relationship becomes a strong area of focus during this cycle, for better or for worse. Keeping this aspect of your partnership alive requires work. A romantic partner could feel like a “heavy” at this time, and you might feel restricted in terms of making acquaintances and enjoying other people’s company. For those single and looking, be careful that you don’t project a negative attitude without even realizing it, as this can intimidate some.
Those of you who are parents could feel the weight of responsibilities towards children during this cycle. They may require more of your attention now.
Creatively speaking, you are a little more serious in your approach. You might be turning a hobby into a business now, or you might find that there is less time for creative hobbies, pastimes, amusements, and entertainment. Your work can require more show, drama, creativity, and entertainment value, and may be a hobby turned business. Romance and work can be tied together in some significant way. Some of you could be working hard on, and putting a lot of effort into, creative hobbies or pastimes.
You can be filled with desire, or circumstances create a need, for more structure in all of these areas of life, including children, romance, creativity, and recreation.
In April-May and then in November, the challenges of this position are more likely to be felt. From November 2015 to September 2016, you might struggle with some form of creative block or financial realities that make it difficult to pursue your craft. A dream or fantasy may fall through, and motivation levels can drop off temporarily. There may also be some confusion over property and possessions, shared resources or business.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Belief Systems, Travel, Perspective, Education
Your 2015 Leo Horoscope, Uranus Profile, points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which your belief systems and knowledge change and develop, and this is active throughout 2015 and beyond (until March 2019). You experience a spiritual awakening of sorts. Travel opportunities may arise. Learning needs to be exciting or cutting edge for you in order to keep your interest, but while you are less interested in traditional subjects or methods of learning, if you are on an educational path, be sure to “endure” some of these things so that your training is relevant to your career goals. Life experiences are unpredictable and exciting. You are embracing change and easily incorporate changes into your personality.
This may be a time when your life path takes an unexpected turn. Although this can happen in 2015, this influence spans many years. 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 for peace of mind. You may need to give a little when it comes to expanding your mind and experiences, and dealing with the tasks of your daily life or work that keep you organized and healthy. Make sure you don’t shirk important responsibilities or jump on a bandwagon that is impractical, particularly when Uranus squares Pluto in mid-March. If you do, when Saturn is involved in the equation in early May and October, you’ll need to come back down to earth.
Until June, an exciting influence continues in which significant opportunities can come your way, possibly through travel, publishing, promotional activities, favorable legal outcomes, or education. Some of you could meet a significant partner through some of these activities. This can be a very romantic and creative period. Certainly, you’ll find channels and outlets for self-expression that can be very personally rewarding.
Personal magnetism and appeal is especially strong in March and in the last week of June.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Health, Work, Service, Routines, Home life, Family, Career, Learning, communications
Your 2015 Leo Horoscope, Pluto and Moon’s Nodes Profiles, reveal areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It’s a time for “out with the old, in with the new”.
Attitudes towards work, services you provide for others, daily routines, and health continue to transform this year, and they will for many years to come. This is a good period for ridding yourself of bad habits or routines, but be careful that you don’t replace one bad habit with another!
From October forward is a strong period for these matters, when you can get the support and backing of others. This is also a powerful time for healing the body. You might turn around a difficult financial situation at this time. More challenging periods are possible in February, March and May, when education, travel, responsibilities to others, health complaints, excesses, or inner restlessness can interfere with your work or routines.
In 2015, the Moon’s Nodes and eclipse activity continue to affect your sectors of learning, transportation, and communication. Your ability to manage the demands of daily life is tested, and changes may be necessary in order to become more effective. Your personal belief system is also evolving this year. Transportation can be a sudden issue. Opening up communications with others is a challenge but also a potential joy this year. Learning to slow down, to be sensitive to social graces and networks, and to sensitize yourself to others’ needs and communications without fear of being tied down, will release you from some of your nervous tension and help you to achieve more happiness and inner balance. Try not to run from small talk, even if you fear it will waste your time. With the North Node moving through your communications sector most of the year (until October-November), you can benefit greatly from reaching out to others.
As well, and especially in the last quarter of the year, your finances are evolving in important ways. You will be called upon to strike a balance between your own needs for security and comfort and the same needs of other people, such as those of a significant other. You are learning to ask for what you deserve, and to take charge of your earnings. The North Node in your finance sector from October-November forward points to a real need to manage your income, resources, valuables, and talents. Work on balance between independence and interdependence, and between holding on and sharing, particularly around the eclipses in March and September.
