Today's Astro Highlight for Leo from Cafe Astrology
October 22, 2018
The Moon moves into your free-spirited solar ninth house early today, dear Leo, encouraging broad thinking and aspirations, while a Mercury-Pluto aspect forming now favors honing in on the details. Ideally, you'll find the right balance. While there can be more problems or delays than usual, there can also be helpful conversations with family, and you can break some ground on emotional and intimate matters -- these things outshine the snags. It's an active day for power thinking, planning, and strategy. You could arrive at a new commitment, plan, or set-up on the domestic front, and today is useful for figuring out the strategy behind it. You can be especially interested in strengthening or repairing family, home, or living arrangements now.

Today's Leo Horoscope by Patrick Arundell
(Leo 24 July - 23 August)
Monday 22nd October
Something you read could inspire you to make changes to your lifestyle and wellness routines, and might be the reason you feel like turning over a new leaf. However, hot on the trail of such thoughts can be the issue of cost, and whether you can afford it. With health being the crucial factor though, how can you not afford to? Where there's a will there's usually a way.

This Month: Leo
October 2018 Leo Monthly Horoscope Summary: With much emphasis on communications, learning, as well as social and family interactions, dear Leo, October should be a busy, engaging month. You are more communicative, involved, and sociable with Mars back on track and picking up the pace in your partnership zone and the New Moon on the 8th happening in your communications sector. The desire to express yourself and share your experiences with others is powerful this month! Making a fresh start with a neighbor or sibling is possible, too, but keep in mind that with Venus retrograde from the 5th onward, not all relationships are straightforward. Channel your energy into constructive work around the house, particularly independent tasks.
Since May, Mars has been moving sluggishly or backward but is now getting back to its regular speed. You may be focusing less on technical challenges and more on the people in your life in October. Mind you, there can be times this month when you feel others are in the driver's seat. However, consider that you may need a bit of a break from being in charge. As long as you trust a partner, you may benefit from enjoying the view.
With Mars prominent and working at full speed and Venus retrograde and in the background of your solar chart, however, it's best to watch for rubbing people the wrong way or an impatient approach that doesn't do you any favors. Impulsiveness may be a problem especially around the 10th and 19th, and timing can be a little off. While Mars in your partnership sector can pull up some needed confrontations with others, with Venus retrograde concurrently, there can be tact and decorum missing, leading to problems that may not resolve for some time. Be watchful of this tendency and protect what's most precious to you.
If a lover seems distant or a love affair appears to stall this month, it might only mean that it's time to slow down and process things. Take things one day at a time. Relationships with family or comfort in the home can meet with complications during this retrograde cycle that lasts until November 16th. Regarding home and family, reviving old projects or returning to previous conditions may be beneficial this month. Channeling your energies into a domestic project that will truly make life easier, happier, or more pleasing can be particularly useful to you now, especially if it's a work in progress to which you are returning.
What you find valuable and worth your while can change significantly with Venus retrograde. It's a fine time for looking at something from an entirely different perspective, particularly related to family relationships and projects or studies. Especially with insights gained on the 15th and 25th, you'll be in a better position to understand your needs and values. Reconnecting ties with people you love may prove particularly satisfying now.
Balancing your personal and professional/public life can be challenging but necessary around the Full Moon on the 24th. This lunation may bring the culmination of a significant work project or a scurry of activity on the job or in your public life as it happens at the top of your solar chart. Events occur that highlight your responsibilities in your professional life. With Uranus involved, too, this can be a time of sudden movement and surprises.
Jupiter is spending its final weeks in your solar fourth house before it moves on officially on November 9th. Before Jupiter goes, it's forming a lovely aspect with Chiron, and Mercury hooks into this energy in the last few days of October. Excellent opportunities can arise to bond with those closest to your heart. You may be finding peace with your past in a meaningful way. It makes sense to jump on opportunities to improve your domestic life now or enjoy some good news. Opportunities for love and friendship may emerge close to home.
This Year: Leo
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
