The Astrology of Today – All Signs
This Month: Leo
December 2017: Romance, leisure time, creative expression, and pleasure-seeking are in high focus this month, dear Leo. An emphasis on your practical affairs, work, and health and buckling down in these areas are themes later in December, but the first three weeks emphasize having fun and unwinding. You are exceptionally companionable and open to new experiences, although perhaps starry-eyed at times. People or projects from the past could be in active focus from the 3-22. There can be a waiting game, delay, stalling, or catch-up period within these dates, but giving due attention to what you've overlooked means you end up ahead of the game, ultimately. It would be wise to go easy on speculation and spending at this time. Saturn leaving your solar fifth house this month after a three-year stay can find you far less inhibited, and eager to enjoy yourself more freely and spontaneously.
The bigger headlines of December are the start of two new longer-term trends. For one, Saturn encourages you to simplify and work more efficiently, and for another, Jupiter-Neptune stimulates the need for more spirituality and creativity in your personal life. These are widely different themes, but help you to compartmentalize well in the coming months -- something that's good for you at this stage in your life.
The Jupiter-Neptune influence starting now sticks with you in varying degrees of intensity until August 2018, helping you strengthen and make the most out of the positive effects of Jupiter's transit to your home and family sector. There may be increased resources available to you for improving your home life. It can be a great time for psychotherapy and purging as you are willing to look at the root of problems. It's a good time for long-term financial planning and strengthening your financial picture through some form of pooling of resources. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, primarily through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors. You may discover resources that you never knew you had or you find new and creative ways of using existing resources. Help seems to be there when you need it. Imaginative undertakings could boost your income, perhaps combined income for some of you. Connecting intimately with another person boosts your sense of security or lifts your spirits. There may be some material benefits coming from real estate or family. Slowing down in some areas of life can actually help you advance both in your personal and professional lives. You are in need of a spiritual or creative escape from time to time, and this influence nudges you to seek it out.
Saturn, on the other hand, encourages you to build some boundaries, restrict, or discipline yourself, and on the 20th, moves into your work and health sector, where it will transit until 2020. You're challenged to straighten out your daily affairs, work, routines, health, habits, and self-care programs during this useful cycle. This energy will take time to play out, but there are big hints of it this month, particularly on the 21st and 25th as the Sun and Venus meet up with Saturn (and move into your work and health sector as well). Obligations to others can be magnified, and responsibilities to your work, routines, or daily chores are illuminated. It can be a time for reassessing projects, seeing flaws or weak spots, and facing reality. Aim to make changes slowly, responsibly, and conservatively -- Saturn-style! The goal now is to make improvements that last years, if not a lifetime. Aim to work hard and do what you can, without pushing yourself too hard. Saturn wants you to work smarter, not necessarily harder. You're likely to see your priorities more clearly with the events of the fourth week of December, and if a new game plan is necessary, it's time to make it. You take on a no-nonsense approach to work and health.
These new influences introduced in December suggest a much more precise division between work and play now and in the coming years.
Until the 9th, Mars continues its transit of your communications sector, keeping your everyday life bustling. On the 5-6, you're in good shape for tuning in to practical goals and priorities. You can be feeling considerably more settled and goal-oriented. Simple, thoughtful gestures work wonders to improve your relations, perhaps reconnecting you with an old friend.
From the 9th forward, Mars moves into challenging aspect with your sign, putting some pressure on you. Aim to relax or take breaks often and to direct excess energy into constructive projects. Whether you’re giving support or receiving it, it can feel right about taking action on emotional matters. Mars in your home and family sector can point to some extra energy focused on the home, perhaps leading to strife from time to time. You can use this extra muscle to work on domestic matters, such as decorating, cleaning, and reorganizing. With this kind of motivation, you can get a lot done. Home is a busy place towards the end of 2017!
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
