It may be helpful to pay attention to your emotions over coming weeks, as they can give clues as to your next course of action. Indeed, it would be no surprise if certain feelings intensified, encouraging you to look further into a range of issues.

This Month: Leo
January & February 2018: The period ahead holds tremendous potential for making empowering changes to your work or health pursuits and daily routines, dear Leo, as well as exciting improvements in your relationships.
The New Moon on January 16th sets the tone for the second half of January and the first half of February. While it doesn't have eclipse status, it's a significant lunation. For you, this New Moon is especially potent for matters related to daily routines, habits, health, work, and self-care programs. You're in a great position to improve or bring into reality programs that help you organize your life starting with the smallest of details. There is an unusually strong showing of planets, including heavyweights Saturn and Pluto, in your solar sixth house, suggesting a significant new beginning or emphasis on any (or many) of these themes.
The weeks following this New Moon are excellent for making changes and tweaks to the personal systems in your life so that work and health goals are more realizable and fulfilling in the long run -- in other words, they serve you well not just now but later, too. This emphasis occurs in the sign of Capricorn, after all -- a sign that has its eye on what matters in the long term -- and to reap its rewards, you pretty much have to think like a Capricorn when dealing with your services and daily routines. Fortunately, this comes naturally to you since Capricorn is found on the sector of your solar chart that rules these matters (in other words, in your solar chart, this is Capricorn's home). It's a time for making things fair, balanced, and in good working order. Start with small, realizable goals and work your way up while taming the inclination to overshoot or go big right away.
You might make or renew a commitment to living well at home and in your daily routines and work with beautiful results. This can be a good time for making successful home-health or home-job connections. Motivated by your desire to improve home life -- or with family support -- you're in a great position to get your work and daily routines into smooth running order. You may be doing some battle with your rather insistent desire to mix up your routine or spontaneously pursue new experiences or take on new projects due to Uranus in challenging position to planets in Capricorn. Tame this rebellious or restless energy, however, and you have the chance to turn over a new leaf with daily schedules, work, and health programs. It's important to note that Uranus is making its transition out of a clashing position with Capricorn later this year and early 2019.
Vesta and then Mars move into harmony with your sign from January 15th and 26th forward, respectively, pointing to an excellent ability to pace yourself and pour your energies into constructive activities. You're in great shape for enjoying and often excelling at fun competitions, romantic relationships, dating, sports, games, and hobbies during this entire period. Personal appeal is strong. Creatively speaking, you're motivated and ready to take on a challenge.
The Lunar Eclipse on January 31st is the second Full Moon in January (there are none in February), is in your sign, and reinforces themes that began mid-2016. Just for your information, a Lunar Eclipse happened in your sign in February 2017, and another (the final one) will occur in February 2019.
This set of eclipses awakens your need for a better understanding of your independence and relationships. This particular Lunar Eclipse can prompt a revelation about your ability to stand on your own. This eclipse can help point you in the right direction toward correcting imbalances, particularly in the me-you department in relationships. If you've been defining yourself mainly through your relationships, now is the time to draw up your own terms. Important epiphanies can occur that serve as a push to make essential changes in your life. In fact, the Solar Eclipse happening two weeks later (on February 15th) brings new-beginning energy for close relationships.
There is an increasing focus on partnering, socializing, and coming to agreements in February after a strong theme of work and health efforts. The Solar Eclipse in mid-February prompts new beginnings with partnerships. You're in great shape for going forward in a new or current relationship, or learning important things about partnership needs, with a clean slate or starting fresh. Do important groundwork between the eclipse dates (January 31 to February 15) by attempting to understand matters of the heart, so that you will be mentally prepared for new developments in close relationships.
The second half of February is increasingly more focused on the deeper side of relationships, intimacy, attachments, and pouring concentrated energy into passion projects or depth studies.

2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is potentially brilliant for home and family life and improved habits, routines, health, and work, dear Leo. You’re developing practices that will benefit you many times over and for years to come. Even so, you can be very busy making adjustments and fixing problems before things run smoothly. Later in the year, creative and romantic life improves.
In many ways, 2018 is about establishing yourself. You’re likely to work hard and rest hard this year! Saturn in your work and wellness sector encourages you to take care of business but doesn’t necessarily want you to work harder as much as it promotes working smarter. Saturn in this part of your solar chart reminds you that more isn’t always better. Streamlining and simplifying your daily routines makes sense now. You are in need of more structure when it comes to work, daily routines, and health initiatives, and while it involves effort and persistence, you’ll thank yourself for doing it. Orderliness will be empowering, and paying close attention to deadlines, details, and rules will help tidy up your mind and emotions so that you feel freer to enjoy yourself when pleasure calls, which it is likely to do frequently this year!
This is an excellent year for starting new regimens to better your health and well-being, such as regular exercise and more structured and productive use of your time. This transit lasts until 2020 and is bound to bring you to a healthier, more focused and productive state. If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard or too little, this is the time for addressing the issue. It’s a great time to nail down plans and programs that keep you adequately busy and organized. It’s imperative to remember to focus on long-term benefits in these areas of life rather than short-term rewards, which can be sparse for the time being.
What you’re beginning this year may very well last, so pay close attention to your basic instincts and interests, which will serve you exceptionally well. This is because, without necessarily even knowing it, you are more in touch with what’s in your heart at this time. The very beginnings of long-term businesses or projects might happen for you in 2018.
You continue to seek comfort, but also growth and improvement, in your domestic life in 2018. It’s one of your priorities, and the “work” you do with family and in the home can benefit you for years to come. Get comfortable with yourself – the cosmos are fully supporting this endeavor! You’ll benefit greatly and indefinitely, but especially in the cycle beginning in November when energy is ripe for expressing and sharing yourself in powerful ways. There may be a new hobby or creative activity that you take on, and for some of you, you’ll be bringing an old interest or pleasure back to life. If you’ve always wanted to pursue a specific craft, art, or creative interest, now is the time to do so. You’ll also have most of 2019 to get on this. Your romantic life can blossom from November forward. People are very interested in you romantically speaking, and opportunities can abound. You are pouring more of your heart and soul into what you create and share. This can be the time for a long-distance romance for some.
Eclipses in your sign and opposing sign continue this year and will complete in early 2019. These continue to nudge and prod you to define your life in terms of your partnership needs, bringing up themes of cooperation versus independence. You’re discovering 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 some Leos.
Uranus reaches the top of your solar chart in mid-May but in November, returns to complete its journey of your sector of spirit and adventure. While this is a period of transition for Uranus, it’s also a time when you’re seeing the beginning of the end of a seven-year theme and the very beginnings of a new one. Your career direction and relationships with authority figures may very well change in the coming years. Increasingly, you’ll be finding the need to bring more personality and less routine to your career.

2018 Love Horoscope for Leo
Your sector of romance and creativity can use some free and easy, light and fun energy after an (almost) three-year Saturn transit. Fortunately, this arrives November 8th, 2018. This thirteen-month transit occurs only once every twelve years or so, and it”s excellent for bringing more fun, entertainment, and romance into your life. It will run until December 2019. Jupiter’s transit of fellow Fire sign, Sagittarius, is a fiery and optimistic one, and it vibes well with your fiery nature.
Until November 8th, Jupiter continues to increase your attention as well as joy and happiness levels on the home front and with family. However, if you use this gentle, quiet transit well, and you look very carefully for opportunities, you can better prepare yourself for the more overt opportunities of the upcoming Jupiter in Sagittarius transit. Aim to feel more comfortable in your own skin. Slowly, you are building up your confidence. You may be getting settled in physical ways on the level of house and home, or connecting in more rewarding ways with your family or like-family loved ones. However, you are also more fully connecting with what you need and want on a very basic, fundamental level. The better you get in touch with yourself and your basic needs, the more natural confidence you’ll have when Jupiter enters your romance sector in November and encourages you to share your affections and creations with others.
Jupiter is, in fact, the ruler of romance and dating in your solar chart, so what’s happening to Jupiter has a direct impact on your casual…cont’d
