This Month: Leo
August 2017: August is a powerful month and is particularly useful as a time for starting anew, dear Leo, whether this is about reinventing yourself through a new image or beginning a brand new path towards more personal fulfillment. A strong drive to take the driver's seat in your life overcomes you, and you're taking the necessary steps to get ahead. This is more about you personally than it is about your professional life which may take a backseat temporarily. Personal goals are in high focus.
You recently enjoyed a New Moon in your sign, pushing you along a new path, and this month another New Moon occurs, again in your sign (this doesn't happen often - we typically get one a year, and you have two in 2017). This New Moon is a Total Solar Eclipse, and it packs a whole lot of punch. It's a time for turning over a new leaf.
You're receiving an extra shot of energy and boost in confidence in August. For one, the Solar Eclipse in your sign happens on the 21st. This eclipse acts as a powerful slate cleaner. Something new begins, and it can feel much like a new chapter in your life story. You are ready to kick bad habits, start fresh, and present a more self-assured "you" to the world. However, this can emerge from a feeling that you're very much not in control or in charge, so there can be some discomfort involved. The eclipse receives incredible support, suggesting that efforts put forth now lead to successful, rewarding changes. For another, Mars is in your sign all month, stimulating your courage and bravery, as well as some healthy me-first energy, which of course you should practice in moderation. You're getting several boosts pushing you into the driver's seat. You feel driven this month, although where you're headed may not be exceptionally clear just yet!
The Lunar Eclipse on the 7th is a relationship wake-up call. There has been a tremendous focus on your personality and your needs, wants, and plans. This eclipse pushes for the realization of a partner's role in your life or your own relationship needs. This cosmic push does come at a time when Venus is moving through your privacy sector and heading into an opposition to Pluto, suggesting that you may be dealing with problems from the past that are re-emerging in relationships, as well as with issues related to over-work or perfectionism. Fortunately, there can be a project to focus on with a special person that strengthens a bond this month. August is better for personal announcements and celebrations than for relationship ones.
Finances need a second look with Mercury traveling through your values and resources sector virtually all month and retrograde from the 12th forward. There is a theme with money and business this month that involves looking to past projects for inspiration. You'll have to take a new approach to these ventures or ideas after dusting them off, but they can be true gems. Saturn's direct turn in the last week of August helps, but it won't be before September 9th that you feel ready to push business forward. Focus on refining and editing.
The eclipse set in Leo/Aquarius is still relatively new to you and will evolve until the final eclipse in the set occurs in January 2019. This is a period for discovering your independence, relationships needs, and what makes you shine. It's a time for turning points related to personality and partnership. There can be a temporary feeling of being invisible that motivates you to change your approach to the world. In the coming weeks and even months, you have take-charge energy and vitality for beginning brand-new projects, initiatives, and personal plans. There are pleasant and sudden events or surprises as your life moves forward in significant ways. Travel, education, legal matters, or publishing can be big players.
August is an assertive, active, and enterprising month. Mars is handy to have in your corner as it increases your drive and energy levels and is particularly effective with Venus helping to smooth over rough edges from August 26th forward. This can be an especially active time for educational or travel pursuits. Self-promotion or publishing may be in focus. Your desires are loud, and you're ready to pursue them directly. You exude even more strength, dynamism, and dominance than usual. Of course, you should be careful with this -- try not to take things too far. You receive cosmic help with this goal particularly on the 20-22, but you have support for most of the second half of the month -- you're finding ways to let your confidence and initiative work for you rather than against you.
This Year: Leo
2017 Yearly Horoscope Overview
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.

This Year in Love: Leo
2017 Love Horoscope for Leo
Saturn is transiting your romance sector this year, and this brings more stability and groundedness to your life. It also points to a maturing process, for some, in your romantic life. This can play out in a variety of ways. This sector rules many things, including attention you receive from others, romantic or otherwise, belief in yourself as a unique individual worthy of attention, as well as casual love relationships – how willing you are to share your light. You are learning to be less dependent on others for applause and ego stroking with Saturn here. For some, there can be romantic “tests” or a leaning up process as you become a little more serious about who and what entertains you, and with whom you share yourself. Flaws in your love life may become quite glaring in your eyes. For others, there can be adjustments and changes to make in your love life, after which a relationship strengthens. What you want from a romance, as well as what you are realistically capable of giving back to a romantic relationship, is becoming clearer. You are sharing yourself more selectively.
As your partnership sector ruler, Uranus is always an important player when it comes to your love life (and business if it involves a partnership). In Aries and your solar ninth house for many years, some of you could be finding committed partnership through travel, higher education, or other forms of adventure and expansion beyond your usual boundaries. This trend is especially strong until June, 2015 as Uranus forms a trine with Jupiter in your sign. Some Leos may meet a partner who is from a very different cultural background. Already partnered Leos might embark on new adventures with a significant other. There can be some restlessness if you are not growing together and reaching beyond your usual routine….cont’d
