2017 Leo Overview
2017 Leo Overview: Horoscope
You continue to enjoy learning and expanding your interests this year, dear Leo, and you’re gaining recognition for your ideas and insight. You may feel scattered from time to time, but you’re gaining your footing, particularly as the year advances. A romantic relationship or creative project steadies and commitments might be made.
This is a time for developing your writing, speaking, and teaching skills. Skills and knowledge gained now can be very profitable and useful in the years ahead. You are bringing tons of creativity to your communications. There can be interesting opportunities emerging through courses, meetings, siblings, neighbors, and classmates. Love relationships might begin through the pursuit of learning and mental interests again this year. New and improved ways to commute and connect are also in focus.
Even so, there can be times when you feel a little blocked creatively, that is until you discover that it’s about taking your creative output more seriously than usual. You’re motivated to perfect and refine your work and develop your skills, which can from time to time seem to pull yourself away from the creative process. Even so, if this is done in moderation, which is highly likely this year with balanced energies available to you, you are in a great position to work hard and feel inspired.
While you may have felt that your pursuit of pleasure and learning clashed with your work or creative pursuits in previous years, you’re able to bring a nice balance between the old and the new as well as the practical and experimental. The need to buckle down is certainly real in 2017, but you’re able to creatively combine work and pleasure or skills development with your responsibilities so that you don’t feel overtaxed or pressured by an “either/or” situation.
The people you meet or who have the most influence on you this year tend to help steer you in the right direction when it comes to topics to focus on or work to invest your energies into. This is unlikely to be direct guidance, but rather they are able to see where your true talents lie a little more clearly than you at the moment.
Eclipses this year nudge and prod you to define your life in terms of your partnership needs, bringing up themes of cooperation versus independence. This is a time of self-discovery that also considers partnership considerations. You are asking yourself how you can express yourself authentically and reach your relationship goals as well. This can be a period of a change of relationship status for many Leos.
Casual relationships mature and become more serious this year. In general, you are moving towards deeper thinking and the desire for depth and maturity in your connections to others. While the year is good for your social life overall, you are likely going out a little less, favoring quality over quantity when it comes to your leisure time and romantic life, or combining work with recreation very effectively. You may not have the time, or less inclination, for recreation, entertainment, and hobbies, perhaps preferring to pour your energies into more constructive channels.
Parents might invest more money and time into their children’s hobbies or find themselves creating more structure for their kids. Creative pursuits that most attract you now are those that generate tangible rewards, and you may be putting more energy and work into your own hobbies. Overall, Saturn’s influence this year is good for feeling on track, stable, and strong enough to meet life’s challenges. You are less inclined to rebel or react in 2017, and more inclined to live in a more authentic manner – true to yourself.
Your siblings, acquaintances, and neighbors might be the source of wonderful opportunities this year, so do listen to what they have to say. In 2017, your eyes are opened to new experiences and belief systems. Some of you (mostly those born August 13-21) are enjoying a period of unique self-expression, insightfulness, and sense of freedom.
Don’t pass up on travel opportunities and connections made with people overseas or of a vastly different culture than yours for those Leos who haven’t already done so. These experiences can be eye-opening and beneficial.
Eclipses this year put special focus on spending habits (you need to take charge of your finances) as well as your relationships with others (you need to find a balance between independence and your need for other people in your life).
You are searching for something more fulfilling and deeply satisfying on the job front, and this trend will slowly unfold over the coming years. Along the way, events seem to conspire to push you into that direction. Many Leos (and especially Leo Ascendants) will be starting or growing businesses now and in 2018 that will benefit them for years to come. This will not come without hard work and persistence, but you are likely to enjoy the process more if you work on those things that really matter in the long term.
The desire to move to a larger home or to create the illusion of more space by eliminating clutter is strong in the final quarter of the year. If circumstances allow, this can be a good time to launch new projects or even a long-term business.
