D E C E M B E R 1 7 - 2 3 : L E O


The Sagittarius Saturn trine this week helps push Leo along a bit before it leaves the sign entirely on the 20th. A period of change has just finished for Leo, notably one of horizon expanding and lifestyle advancement that has been both painful and exciting. In trine too this week is Sagittarius Sun until December 21st, where it will positively influence your mojo and get you to engage with things and people you’d previously overlooked. Venus in Sagittarius trines the Sun through the week as well, bolstering your charms and natural sociability---key ingredients for dealing with family or other lightning-rod figures during the holidays. The Sagittarius Mercury in Retrograde will confuse your intent and scramble your words a little, edging towards well-meaning Sagittarian tactlessness, but the mess of your mind will straighten out on the 23rd when Mercury finally stations direct. The square with Scorpio Mars is weeklong as well, however, so despite your wellspring of affability, you may still have to watch for conflict. Try and use the planetary gifts you’ve been given to field any arguments. Scorpio Jupiter is squaring the Suns of Leos born the first week of August, putting them at risk for overindulgences. Retrograde Aries Uranus brings freedom, spontaneity, and the unusual to the doorsteps and, in some cases, laps of mid-August Leos.
