2019: Leo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
The bigger headlines of 2019 for you involve romance, creativity, work, service, and health, dear Leo. These are areas of increased activity and reward.
Jupiter is now in its own sign and, in your solar chart, journeying quite happily through your sector of joy and heart. This transit provides a terrific boost for your spirit. You’re motivated to pursue your heart’s desire, whatever that may be at this point in your life’s journey. Romantic and creative pursuits expand and fulfill you more than usual (until December) after which Jupiter heads into an already busy area of your chart: the house of work, health, routines, and habits. There, it works its magic, stimulating more fulfillment, joy, and success in your daily affairs and inspiring you to improve your work and health.
Uranus at the top of your solar chart is a powerful influence on your social standing, reputation, and career aspirations. You had a sneak peek of this energy last year, and now (from March 2019 forward), it’s sticking. This influence is with you for the coming seven years, exciting your ambitions and also encouraging you to redefine what you want to do with your life. You may recognize talents that you never knew you had, and this can be a sudden, exciting discovery. Your life path or professional life may be changing now, and for some, there can be challenges dealing with current authority figures that motivate a break from the past. It’s a time of more experimentation or attention to alternatives regarding your career or reputation. If you’ve felt confined or inauthentic in these areas, this transit is likely to address these problems. There can be times when your need for independence can dominate and drive many of your actions.
While problems related to shared finances or financial support can continue this year with Neptune’s long-term transit of your solar eighth house. However, you enjoy opportunities for increased stability or clarity with these things as Saturn gives Neptune support, and vice versa. This can be an excellent time to make changes to your current lifestyle that will benefit you for years to come. You are better able to manage your time, balancing out hard work with inspiration. You are more aware of the need for a balanced approach in your relationships, with money, and regarding diet and habits. The eclipses this year also encourage you to find a better work-rest balance. The North Node’s transit helps you to avoid becoming lost in minutia and to consider, at least from time to time, your deeper feelings and needs.
While you’re inclined to work very hard both on work and health or self-care, you’re also finding a better balance in your life through self-expression, leisure, and play. From December forward, though, you’re likely to put most of your efforts into your practical affairs, and thoroughly enjoy yourself as you do. Until then, it’s a time for expanding your leisure time, enjoying a special romance, or taking great pleasure in a special hobby or creative pursuit. 2019 can be a particularly fertile year on physical or creative levels.
Tidying up your routines continues to have strong significance now. You’re thinking about the long-term, not only making things work for you right now, and with Saturn in your solar sixth house, you are ready to make a few sacrifices regarding immediate pleasures if it will help make your future and the longterm more secure. It’s a maturing process that’s happening now, and it’s largely directed towards your work, services, health, and habits. Do watch for overdoing the work angle again this year. Even so, you’re heading towards a stellar period for these areas of life that sticks with you through 2020, and it begins in December. Skills development is favored now in preparation for the opportunities this upcoming period promises.
Key Events in 2019 for Leo:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter square Neptune from January to September. We are looking for a new source of inspiration, but we have the tendency to latch onto impractical dreams or plans to remedy the situation. For you, Leo, uncertainties with money, support, or in your intimate life can seem to interfere with your pursuit of pleasure, romance, or leisure at times during this period. It’s important to avoid neglecting or turning a blind eye to problem areas with any of these things.
Helping you out with this, however, is:
Saturn sextile Neptune from January to November. This reinforcing aspect assists in grounding you. It can be a fabulous help, even if it’s a rather subtle influence. This transit reminds you to balance spiritual and material pursuits. While there continue to be important life lessons, restrictions, and hard work related to your job, chores, duties, and health, you’re finding outlets or a better sense of balance this year. Separating work and downtime can be key to this. Financial or intimate matters may not clarify this year, but this doesn’t compromise your work ethic or subtract from your efforts.
Also this year:
Saturn conjunct South Node (April to September) and Pluto conjunct South Node (April). Difficulties are possible related to attempts to hang on to routines or old habits which can be preventing you from growing, improving, and getting the rest, spiritual sustenance, or emotional healing you need. You may be sticking with the familiar only for fear of change, and this is a tendency you should watch.
Uranus trine Jupiter in December. This happens near the end of the year in Earth signs. In your solar chart, we find Earth signs in your work and practical sectors, and this boost comes to your work, professional life, habits, health, and daily routines. It’s about innovation, progress, new technology, methods, or approaches, and it’s a positive development!
This can be a time of invigoration and a strong feeling of moving forward. You might gain recognition for or otherwise benefit from your nontraditional ideas. Your progressive, innovative perspective can attract positive things your way and can move you closer to your goals. It’s an excellent time for thinking in terms of technological upgrades, improved methods, and innovative approaches. Practical matters, business, and recognition for hard work can figure strongly now. You may be more employable for your natural talents and skills. You could experience a release or liberation from tired old routines or confining circumstances, and possibly even health restrictions, or you’re more mobile and active now, which opens up new possibilities.
Significant minor transits:
Venus conjunct Jupiter — twice! On January 22 and November 24th…and this happens in your sector of romance, creativity, and joyful pursuits, making this a special time for dating, loving, sharing, creating, and enjoying yourself. Your powers of attraction are through the roof now.
Mars conjunct Uranus in late Aries on February 12-13. This occurs shortly before Uranus leaves your spirit sector for good, making it a powerful period for last-minute changes to an educational path, belief system, and mental focus or attitude.
Sun conjunct Uranus in early Taurus on April 22 and Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on May 18. Now that Uranus is consistently in your career and reputation sector, these transits can get the ball rolling with change and progress in your professional or public life.
Sun conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn on December 25-27th. An opportunity period for work, health, habits, service, and daily routines. Ambition and joy combine now and in the coming months.
New and Full Moons/Eclipses:
Please note that these key dates are synopses — quick summaries of astro-events — that are covered more in-depth in the monthly horoscopes and daily horoscopes.

There are some exciting trends with you in 2019, dear Leo. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease that you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
Leos are spontaneous but loyal, and they are proud of who they are and what they do. They have big hearts and so much to give, and they go for the gold! This year, you have Chiron and Jupiter in harmony with your sign, boosting your self-honesty and enthusiasm.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Leo:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
As is evident in the above chart, there is very little in the way of outer planet challenges this year for Leo, and a mix of neutral and harmonious energy for the most part.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
You have wonderful support from Jupiter and Chiron most of this year, Leo. Both planets are in fellow Fire signs.
Leo is a spontaneous Fire sign, but is also of a Fixed nature. The Saturn-Neptune sextile is not as in tune with your natural energies as it is for many other signs, but it benefits you nevertheless, particularly as you may have been a little hard on yourself with health and work pursuits in recent years, and now you’re finding a better balance between hard work and gaining inspiration.
Areas of change and occasional disruption tend to be your career, work, and reputation in 2019.
This is a powerful year for creating, loving, playing, and sharing. Go big in these areas, but know your limits!
