The powerful reach of the sun, your ruling planet, is felt zodiac-wide at the beginning of the year. Couple this to the move of Saturn into Scorpio, and your plate is overflowing with plans for this New Year. But as ever with you, nothing’s ever too much. Nothing daunts Leo.
The best of intentions can be blown right out of the water if self-discipline is in short supply, and your resolve isn’t always as unstinting as you’d like it to be, so it’s a year to pull your socks up.
Will you rise to the challenge? All the signs are that you will as you also have been blessed with a strength of mind, and this is your best ally. The rest should all fall into place naturally.
I think that you’ll carefully consider each and every move before executing it. You’ll strategise. You’ll box clever. You’ll be a tactician. All of your natural hunting instincts, if you like, will surface.
Expressing your creative urge in the home, whether that means beautifying it, or adding value through more of a practical venture, will in some way or other keep you busy during the first six months of 2013.
It’s vitally important that you look to and accept favours from friends and relatives, as you’re going to be granted a lot of goodwill and good grace. The kind that catches you on the hop, and makes you look at how you could perhaps help others more with some no strings attached kindnesses.
That strong sun/Saturn connection can make you feel like your supported by those around you. Sometimes a little too much. Guidance and encouragement won’t be in short supply, likewise the odd piece of advice that is thrown at you, whether you’ve invited it or not.
The opinions of others will of course ultimately take second place to your own, and the more you invest in your own ambition, the happier you’ll be. You’re one of those signs that would rather learn through experience – even if the results turn out to be bittersweet.
Pluto’s fateful magic begins to reshape even what you once regarded as the backbone of your life, and even reform some of the attitudes you once never imagined would start to look a bit out of step.
No matter how long you think that you may have left things for, you’re always in a position to make a clean sweep, and that includes any other circumstances that go with it. I think you’re going to take radical steps towards making this change.
Who can say that this is a bad thing? I can’t.
Jupiter helps you identify what you want, and the role that this planet will play is a vital one in the first six months. It aids and abets you when it comes to rooting out hidden opportunity, as well as catching the more overt stuff, and then running with it to touchdown.
Come June, and the move of this planet, and subtlety is the ballpark that you’re in. The latter part of the year becomes more about self-discovery, about spiritualism, with perhaps even a religious dimension.
Be yourself. Be pioneer. Climb mountains and ford streams in the first half of the year. Following on from this, take a hard look at those aspects of your inner self that you feel are best weeded out.
