Today's Leo Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
January 21, 2021
Aim to discern between feelings that come from a place of insecurity and those that come from your heart today, dear Leo. You might feel that something is leading to a dead-end, and you may want to investigate your alternatives. However, be careful not to jump into action based on current frustrations. This week brings on some rather rebellious energy, and there can be some doubts about recent convictions today. They're temporary. The Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and focusing on goals or setting objectives can be most satisfying on an emotional level--you may very well catch a wave of inspiration. Changing attitudes towards the expectations or opinions of others can lead you to want to do something out of the ordinary. Solo or pioneering efforts can be most attractive right now.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- The Moon spends the day in the sign of Taurus, and with this Moon position, we crave simplicity, comfort, and predictability.
- However, with both Mars and Uranus currently in the sign, we’d be wise to embrace some level of change and progress.
- The need to do our routines just a bit differently can arise.
- Nobody can force us to do anything just now–we are only in the mood to do things voluntarily.
- While the Mars-Uranus alignment is separating, the Moon aligns with Mars and Uranus today, and it’s strong in our hearts and memories.
- However, a Mercury-Chiron semi-square challenges us to communicate with more sensitivity. There is some tendency to doubt our perceptions, and there can be impatience with rules, anxiety or guilty feelings, and conflicting viewpoints to contend with now.
- We may not have enough faith or confidence in our choices to make effective decisions at the moment, but this gives us a chance to learn more about areas where we feel uninformed.

This Month: Leo
January 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Leo:
Your drive to improve your life is strong this month, dear Leo. Applying yourself to something constructive is satisfying, and putting in the effort to enhance your daily routines is rewarding. You might feel some healthy competition that pushes you to new heights, and it feels good to rise to a challenge, especially one of your own making.
Especially from the 6th forward (until early March), you're enthusiastic about taking care of business and anxious to succeed and meet or exceed your goals. Mars finally moves to the top of your solar chart, firing up your ambitions. While exciting for life path goals, you can sometimes feel that you're in the hot seat with Mars challenging your sign during this transit. You prefer a more straightforward approach to life than what's on offer, but you can work with this energy and use it to your advantage, laying the groundwork for more outgoing times to come. Your natural enthusiasm can sell a good idea or plan.
Circumstances seem to push you to improve and reach a little further, and confidence improves your timing. You have a real knack for smoothing over differences. This can be a uniquely creative time for your work and practical goals, as well as personal and professional appeal. You might find it easier to get jobs done without waste.
When it comes to money, personal possessions, and valuables, you're doing things just a little differently. A change of pace can feel right.
The New Moon on the 13th occurs in your work and health sector, and it can pump you up to make meaningful changes to your regular daily routines. Circumstances are such that you need to take charge of your work and health habits, and new directions are likely. Watch for impulsiveness and impatience, but enjoy new ideas and approaches. This is a time for doing work, health, and self-care in brand new ways.
The following day, Uranus turns direct after several months of retrograde motion. Your spirit strengthens for finding your own unique path. Your ability to take personal and professional risks and leaps of faith improves. Career-related matters renew their spark in your life, and motivation levels increase.
You're in perfect shape for talking things through with others with Mercury heading into your partnership sector on the 8th. An opposing viewpoint helps you get to a more vital understanding of your own! Even when you disagree with someone, the thinking that results from a debate can help clarify your thoughts. You seek or attract people who help stimulate your ideas and decisions.
Nevertheless, you could also experience some conflict between the demands of a partnership and career demands. You're taking more pleasure and interest in your relationship, and your more worldly affairs may not always fit well with this trend. Some restlessness can lead to agitations, or you can be particularly sensitive to feeling confined or limited regarding a relationship, career, or reputation matter. While you might want to jump to a decision, more research may be necessary, so try to pace yourself. A truly good plan will still look good the next day!
Your ideas, particularly business ones, are incredibly innovative and progressive right now, but moving forward in your career or becoming a freer spirit involves some adjustments.
On the 28th, a Full Moon occurs in your sign, bringing heightened emotions and long-standing issues or projects to fruition. A personal revelation can happen now. Avoid stretching yourself too thin, and don't make final conclusions until you've reached a state of inner certainty.
With Jupiter in your solar seventh house and the Sun coming into alignment with this planet of plenty, the best version of yourself shines forth in one-on-one situations. The realization of a goal may seem more possible through collaboration or the support of a special person in your life. You gravitate to positions that give you the feeling that you're part of a bigger plan or something bigger than yourself. You could be attracting people who boost your confidence or benefit you in critical ways. This is a time for making an extra effort to reach out, connect, and negotiate. Aim to address any need that seems to arise in a current relationship for growth and development.
Even so, Mercury turns retrograde in your partnership sector on the 30th, suggesting there can be some slowdowns or delays, likely related to a significant person in your life. While your plans and relationship goals are big, it's best not to rush things.
December 2020 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Leo:
December brings good energy for feeling that you're moving forward, dear Leo. Your enjoyment sector hosts Mercury and the Sun until the 20-21 and Venus from the 15th onward. A Solar Eclipse occurs in this same, favorable part of your chart on the 14th, bringing even more power to areas ruled by this sector, including romance, creativity, hobbies, entertainment, children, and pleasure. Confidence with sharing and expressing yourself more freely is on the upswing.
You are spirited and self-expressive this month. In recent months, you may have been more focused on refining your approach to getting what you want in life than you have been pursuing your desires. Now that Mars is picking up speed, your motivation is rebuilding. It's an excellent time for pursuing intellectual interests and studies, hobbies, and romantic pursuits.
Until mid-month, you're in a great position to boost relationships with family, finding new ways to enjoy home life or time spent nesting. Creativity is peaking at this time of year, and you have the chance to find new and exciting ways of expressing yourself. You gravitate towards the things you truly love doing, and it's where your greater chances of success lie.
On the 14th, the New Moon Solar Eclipse prompts you to express your feelings and do more creating, romancing, enjoying, and entertaining. There can be opening doors, new beginnings, or restarts along creative or romantic lines. You can be enthusiastic about making changes in these areas.
Both Jupiter and Saturn change signs this month and both head into your partnership sector. While Jupiter will stick around here for much of 2021, Saturn will transit this relationship-oriented area of your solar chart until March 2023.
Saturn's influence here can put some pressure on committed relationships. It's also traveling opposite your sign, and you could feel that others, or life itself, demands a little more from you than usual. There may be the question of whether or not to commit to someone, or a current relationship may encounter some tests, particularly if it's been limiting or confining you. Some of you could be slowly but surely easing into a stable relationship.
This transit helps you get to a better understanding of your relationships and partnering needs. You may face some tests to a current relationship's strength or your sense of what you want from others along the way. This transit can also stimulate a stronger desire for long-term, real connections, or it may bring a more mature or serious partner into your life. While problem areas in a relationship can magnify, eventually, clarity comes. Decisions are more comfortable when you can see people and things for their strengths and weaknesses, so aim for this sweet spot. Once beyond the exaggerated stage of realizations, you'll be in an excellent position to reassess your needs from your relationships. For some, a problematic relationship irons out or ends, and this can feel right to you.
In a rare turn of events, you have Jupiter in the same sector of your chart for a fair part of the first year of Saturn's transit here, starting this month.
It's a fine time to benefit from counseling or partnering. Someone coming into your life during this period can be significant. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with an important person.
Alliances might be made, and partnering matters are strong, committed, clear, and beneficial. The realization of a goal may seem even more possible through collaboration or the support of a special person in your life. For some, you might partner up to work or improve your health. Still, with Saturn leaving your work and health zone, not to return for another 26 years, your attitude towards daily routines and work tends to improve.
Mercury and the Sun move into your work and health sector on the 20th and 21st, respectively, and your focus shifts to daily routines, employment, health, and self-care or self-improvement programs. Favored now are activities that get your life and your mind tidy and organized. Your willingness to put in the detail work involved with moving towards a long-term or ambitious goal is admirable.
If you've been ignoring your needs for rest and reflection, you could be feeling especially drained and sensitive around the Full Moon on the 29th. While you're often busy and engaged, this lunation reminds you of the need to slow down and listen to your body's signals. It's time to consider ways to regenerate and strengthen emotionally.
This Year: Leo
2021 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year 2021 is a powerful time for sorting out your one-to-one relationships, dear Leo, and for discovering your passions.
Partnerships are evolving this year. It’s about commitment–whatever you choose now, you’re all in. You’ve brought more seriousness and maturity to your work and health pursuits in recent years, and now this energy is shifting towards your key one-to-one relationships. There will be times when your relationships feel heavy, but the potential is high for stepping up and sorting out this area of your life in no uncertain terms.
Your career continues to need unique and new approaches–you’re reinventing yourself on professional or public levels. The process is a lengthy one, with Uranus shaking up your solar tenth house for several more years. Still, it’s an important one as you seek more freedom or authenticity.
Even so, your life-path goals can frequently feel at odds with relationship goals in 2021. Both areas of your life need special attention, and neither should suffer because of the other.
You’ve been doing your social and romantic life differently, and this continues throughout 2021. Friendship, networks, associates, teams, and happiness goals continue to bring some challenges and rewards. Sharing the load may mean sometimes sharing the credit, but overall, you’re in good shape for rounding out your experiences. Awakening to your true feelings for a friend or lover can figure strongly. Putting more energy into friendships can improve your love life, bringing more balance to your life.
There has been some rethinking of specific plans related to education, publishing, belief systems, life experience, adventure, or travel. You begin 2021 with a better understanding of your desires in these areas, putting in you a far better position for making meaningful choices and decisions for yourself.
2021 is strong for making commitments, partnering, and negotiating. What you begin now can very well be significant and long-term. Nevertheless, there can be some pressure, accountability, and unrest in the partnership department in spots.
Relationships get serious this year and can be the source of some challenges. You are taking steps towards a more mature relationship or attitude toward what you want for your close partnerships. You might bring a connection to a new level. Relationship status changes are possible. Leaving behind an unhappy alliance or getting over a hump in an existing partnership can figure strongly. Someone seems to be in your corner this year. You might resolve long-standing problems and come to beneficial agreements.
While health and work pursuits are still important and sometimes intense, much of the stress you’ve felt with these things is easing. You’re opening to learning, sharing, and connecting in healthier ways.
New themes stirring this year include a boost to intimacy and shared finances, as well as significant developments in your career or longer-term goals. There will be more to these unfolding stories in 2022, but you’ll begin to see some beneficial changes now.
This Year in Love: Leo
2021 Love Horoscope for Leo
Last year, Saturn dipped its toes in from March 21-July 1, but later (mid-December) dove right in. This energy is serious, a bit stern, and practical. However, Jupiter also entered the same sector of your solar chart, and it’s an entirely different, and in many ways opposite, feel. Jupiter wants to grow, expand, embrace, and enjoy itself. Jupiter’s transit here usually brings helpful people to your door (figuratively speaking) or a happy, upbeat relationship theme to your life.
While they have very different personalities, when Jupiter and Saturn get together, they tend to get things done. It’s a strong time for making commitments, partnering, and negotiating. What you begin now can very well be significant and long-term.
Nevertheless, there can be some pressure, accountability, and unrest in the partnership department in spots.
Relationships get serious this year and can be the source of some challenges. You might solidify a partnership or make a commitment. The pressures that arise this year and next can break a relationship that is not strong enough to endure in some cases.
Saturn moving through your partnership sector brings serious energy to one-to-one relationships, and its opposition to your own Sun or Ascendant can stimulate some feelings of being alone, unsupported, or blocked. However, you also have support for learning, connecting, and understanding cultural differences. Some of you could be committing to a second marriage. You are taking steps towards a more mature relationship or attitude toward what you want for your close partnerships.
Some of you will be gravitating towards more mature, grounded, or practical (Saturn-like) people. Most of you will be looking for quality in your relationships. Who meets you halfway? Some of you will decide you’d rather be alone than settle for something that doesn’t fulfill you.
Ultimately, you’re learning exactly what a close partnership means to you. The process involves stripping some of your fantasies about relationships, and this can feel draining at times, but it works in your favor in the longer run. You may see the less flattering sides of a partner, relationship, or yourself through a relationship. At first, this can feel a bit stark, but once you get to a more realistic frame of mind, you’re in better shape for making good choices and decisions.
This is not the time to shy away from important conversations or other signals that require your strong attention.
There will be times when your relationships feel heavy this year and the next, but the potential is high for stepping up and sorting out this area of your life in no uncertain terms…cont’d
