Leo in 2013
Doing extra networking during the first half of the year should really pay off. Lucky Jupiter is in your House of Alliances through June 25th, and during this period, friends and colleagues can connect you with opportunities to expand your sense of what's possible in life. Then, Jupiter shifts into your House of Closure through July 2014, encouraging you to tie up any loose ends that are getting in the way of your happiness. A square alignment between innovative Uranus and probing Pluto is once again rocking most everyone's foundations this year. Powerful days for Leos include March 28th through the 31st; July 1st through the 3rd; and October 1st through the 3rd. During these periods, when your planetary guide, the radiant Sun, connects with these powerful planets, look for out-of-the-blue events to trigger a deep awareness of your attachments and the importance of letting go. Your home and relatives once again play an important role in your life. With structured Saturn residing in your House of Roots, you're being urged to take stock of how your past and family dynamics have influenced you. If you take on any home improvement projects, make sure you don't cut corners, as doing so could come back to haunt you. This area of your life is likely to be high on your radar -- especially during the first week of November, with the Solar Eclipse on the 3rd and the Sun's meeting with Saturn on the 6th.
Love And Romance
Dreamy Neptune in your House of Intimacy is inspiring you to seek out more meaningful, soul-satisfying relationships. Watch out for a heightened tendency to idealize a particular relationship, which could lead to disappointment. Don't worry if this understanding doesn't come overnight. The process of experiencing deepening connections is a long-term one, as Neptune will be touching this area of your life for the next decade-plus. The first few months of the year may be the most active when it comes to your love life. That's not to say the rest of the year won't yield great pleasure; it's just that January through March is the time when the foundations of your partnerships are especially on your mind. As your planetary guide, the radiant Sun, traverses your House of Relationships January 19th through February 18th, you gain greater insight into your desire for partnership. February 20th is a big day for love. The radiant Sun unites with dreamy Neptune, enabling you to connect to a well of strong feelings. If a partner proposes a long-term commitment between February 23rd and March 17th, do what you can to put the decision off until later in March. Mercury is retrograde during those three weeks, and you don't have all the information you need. It's better not to make important commitments until Mercury returns to direct motion once again. Mark March 28th on your calendar, that's when the Sun unites with gracious Venus and innovative Uranus. You may be surprised by the twists and turns that a relationship takes.
Career And Money
Probing Pluto continues to create change in your work life through its tenure in your House of Service. This is an evolutionary period when you're encouraged to let go of old ideas about the perfect job. Instead, be open to positions that allow you to keep honing new or existing skills. Where you're headed may not be clear, but that's okay; Pluto will continue transforming your vocational abilities for the next decade-plus. When innovative Uranus makes a stressful square to Pluto on May 20th and November 1st, expect the unexpected at work. These events may cause you to question your goals, but this is part of the process of refining them. Managing potential ups and downs, on the other hand, may be challenging, and can even tax your home life. The Lunar Eclipse on April 25th will likely bring any tensions to light. Additionally, this event can help you tune in to gut instincts that will help you make better decisions at work. As for finances, it's important to be careful when it comes to joint investments. Imaginative Neptune is in your House of Shared Resources, where it will stay for another ten-plus years. Try to keep your boundaries as firm and clear as possible when spelling out who owns or controls what. Also, remember that a deal that seems too good to be true probably is. If possible, do your holiday shopping after December 7th, when assertive Mars leaves your House of Money and you're less inclined to make impulse purchases.
