Leo Forecast for 2019
It is less that there are two very different areas of your chart vying for your attention in 2019 and more that there are two very different groups, with both asserting themselves in the early weeks of the year. At the centre of each group is a dominant force, with lucky Jupiter at the centre of one group and Saturn at the centre of the other. I only need to tell you where they are to immediately reveal the challenge this presents, with Jupiter in a playful part of your chart and Saturn in your work sector. This makes a balance between work and play your biggest challenge in 2019. Yet, while this will appear to conflict in the early days of the year, for the most part, they are staying out of each other's way.
You not only begin the year with lucky Jupiter still in the early weeks of a 13 month visit to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, but with Mars returning to an adventurous part of your chart on New Year's Day. Along with a total lunar eclipse in Leo on 21st January, this is the group of energy surrounding Jupiter and this lucky year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. Mars won't leave an adventurous part of your chart until 14th February and with Uranus here until 6th March, there is a strong sense of adventure and fun in the air, during the first two months of the year. The problem is that you will always start the year with the Sun in your work sector and with a solar eclipse here on 6th January, it appears that you have a battle on your hands.
However, apart from a lot of focus on work and job matters in the early weeks of the year, things will dial back. As first Mars, on 14th February and then Uranus on 6th March leave an adventurous part of your chart, they will both return to your career sector, kicking off major developments that will not only continue for the rest of this year, but for the next seven years. By the time Jupiter returns to your work sector on 3rd December, the scene will be set to make 2020 the most powerful professional year in your lifetime. Yet no matter how busy things get this year, you have Jupiter in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until 3rd December, policing a balance between work and play. Compared to other years, if a balance between work and play is your biggest challenge, then you get off lightly.
