Leo, it’s time to rediscover your magical dimensions. Your zodiac sign is invariably associated with the Sun, AKA Apollo, the cosmic ruler of Leo.
Its dazzling role as the source of heat, light, and life can shadow the Sun’s mystical elements. But think about this: If you noted the position of the Sun at the same time every day, over the course of the year, it makes a gigantic figure Eight in the sky. It’s called the Analemma*and yes, it is same as the infinity symbol. Forget whatever else you heard: Eight is the Leo lucky number.
The Sun’s position at each Equinox of the year, when it rises and sets at exact East/West, aligns with the Galactic Poles. The Solstice syncs to the Ecliptic North and South Poles. Vegvisirs, Medicine Wheels, the I-Ching – practically every esoteric circle you can think of – they’re all heliocentric.
Helio-Anything Is Good For Leos
Helio-anything is good for Leos: Solar plexus chakra visuals, yogic Sun Salutes, taking “halo” as your hair cue, dawn rising, the color yellow, gold, sunflowers and Sun deity emblems.
Astrologically, you’re adjusting to Jupiter + Saturn in Aquarius, your opposite sign. Whatever your attitude toward partnerships is, you’re altering it. Current Status? Subject to fluctuations, in your head if not in reality. Jupiter is the archetypal creative visualizer and Saturn more akin to an engineer: Jupiter dominates until mid-year and then Saturn steps up. Outsized expectations could come off by then but if not, June-August works for a restructure.
Both these planetary influences are mild in comparison to the arrival of Pluto in Aquarius, from 2023. Plutonic relationships are high-Qi transformative power-alliances, a heady blend of sensual attraction and evolutionary spiritual forces. This new Aquarius emphasis also inspires fantastic collaborations and business duos. Just subtract the ‘sensual attraction’ factor.
But if you’re drifting, Pluto opposite can tend toward soul-sucking control dramas that require immense focus to uncouple from. Use the optimized, growth-centric relationship astro of 2021/2022 to establish what you really want. Saturn compels you to examine your part in relationship dysfunction, past and present. Guess who suddenly appreciates the chilled-out Aquarian objectivity?
Uranus in your solar career sector – symbolically, high noon – makes Taureans and Taurus-style business super-fortunate. Track toward a combo of contemporary and ancient – Uranus innovates but Taurus rules things that are substantial or which endure: Trades, Plants, Trees, Art, Land, Ancient Coins, Classic Techniques re-imagined for a new century, Physical books.
June and December repeat January’s Saturn-Uranus square: If you adjusted or found a workaround to early 2021 obstacles, June = triumph, albeit in a turbulent atmosphere. If you are still swept up questioning change or you haven’t altered a thing, June is tricky. Happily, there are no big-deal Saturn astro-passages in 2022 – Jupiter syncs to Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. It will be particularly beneficial for neo-Leo metaphysics, money and public profile.
2021’s Fixed emphasis is tedious if you respond to it by doubling down on your fixed position. Rather, tune back into the solar cycle and your innate rhythm. The moment you rigidify or let others define you, you’re dimming your own light. Ineffable creativity and a sunny temperament are Leo gifts. Shine those you will always prevail.
*Analemma is Latin for sundial.
