Leo January Horoscope 2016

You begin your year with the Western, social sector of your chart overwhelmingly dominant. From the 1st to the 15th 80 per cent of the planets are situated in the west, and this then rises to 90 per cent between the 15th and the 27th. This is quite a challenge for a Leo. You have to forget about yourself and devote yourself to others, to let others have their way (so long as it isn’t destructive) and lead by following. The leader, which you are innately, derives his or her power from the consent of the governed and you are learning this in the month ahead. Leadership is a kind of service to others. It is not a question of pomp, ego and personal power. As you focus on others, you will find that your own needs will be satisfied.

An important shift happens this month too. Planetary power will move (on the 20th) from the lower half of the horoscope to the upper half, where it has launched in the past six or so months. Symbolically speaking, dawn is breaking in your year. The Sun is the ideal. The focus of life is enclosed in the external world and your external goals. Career is currently beginning to be significant. You can start to downplay home and family issues now.

On the 20th, you enter a yearly love and social peak, which will be a lot stronger than those of previous years. Uranus, your love planet, receives wonderful aspects. Love is very pleased now and the unattached (if they get some of you left) will soon be attacked. This is a delightful love month in a critical love year.

Finance also looks strong this month. Jupiter is still in your sign and Mercury, your financial planet, is moving forward until the 21st. With the 6th house of health and work power, until the 20th job seekers have good fortune. Money can come from second jobs or side jobs – especially until the 5th. After that date, as Mercury moves into your 7th house, your social connections become important financially. You love being off to parties anyway, but now there are bottom-line benefits as well. You mingle with wealthy people and they seem supportive and provide opportunities.

After the 21st, you should refrain from major purchases. Investments or financial decisions. The financial life should be placed under review during Mercury’s retrograde. It is the time to gain clarity in finances, not for overt action.

Health and energy are effective until the 20th, but afterwards rest and relax more. Improve the health situation in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Drive more carefully from the 2nd to the 4th and avoid taking risks or stressful activities then as well. It will be a great idea to take long trips at that time either.
