Leo 2018 Horoscope ~ January to March
Leo in 2018 has Saturn in its house of routines and daily work all year. The worst thing you can do in your Leo Horoscope 2018, is run yourself ragged trying to be everything to everyone. Focus on the ground below your feet and plant as many seeds as you can while the soil is fertile. That way you can reap as much harvest as possible when Saturn crosses above the horizon of your chart into the next sign. Learning to organise yourself is vital, time management and keeping to schedule will help you feel less stressed. When things get overwhelmingly busy, sticking to your timetable will help avoid the temptation of working extra hours.
You are vulnerable to loosing more time to sick days in the long run, so it’s really not worth pushing yourself that hard. Conserve energy as much as you can, work slowly, thoroughly and with care. Respect nature and its cycles during this time of deferred gratification. Your work ethic will feel quite meaningful at this time, like you are part of a set of cogs running the wheels of your community. Saturn asks that you do not work primarily for yourself, but because you want to be of service to your family or to a wider family/folk network.
Mars is in your foundational 4th house from Jan 1 to 26. There is much pride for your family at this time. Events occur where you can get together with extended family and feel empowered by your shared blood. You have a huge amount of energy to give to your children or other family descendants. This means that you set aside time for activities and adventure together. You won’t have to travel too far from home for this physical bonding, for instance you might build a tree-house, play sports in local parks or build sandcastles together if you live near a beach. The important thing is putting energy into having fun with your family in places that give you a feeling of connection both with the earth and each other.
Leo Eclipses in 2018
The Jan 31 Lunar Eclipse is is your sign! So this forces you to look at your own needs. This may be done through relationships that suddenly start ‘acting-out.’ You may find it increasingly hard to compromise with partners, romantic or otherwise. At this time the weighing scales of justice are measuring every little give-and-take. If there has been an ongoing imbalance, then the scales will abruptly clank down with a deafening thud with this lunar eclipse. For the next 3 months then, you will not be able to avoid the stark difference between the two sides of the scales.
The Feb 15 Solar Eclipse in your marriage zone has the effect of reinforcing satisfying and balanced relationships, but also of splitting apart weak or draining connections. You might have quite a few passionate arguments with partners of all sorts during this eclipse period, but they will only serve to bring you closer. Passion is the word as debates get heated. This is what I mean by the ‘shot’ in the arm mentioned earlier, it might be just what is needed to revive stagnant relationships. Solar Eclipses get things moving again in relationships, for better or worse, so it can make one partner brave enough to move out of the relationship if it was just going nowhere. This is liberating no matter how you look at it.
