LEO 2013

For greater accuracy, these sun sign forecasts are divided into three groups, according to birth date.

2013 EARLY LEO (Born around 22nd-31st July).

 From January to March Uranus trines and Jupiter sextiles your natal sun, both focused on those born around 28th July. These are both harmonious influences, so you should aim to make the most of this helpful combination. Uranus has an “individualising” quality, drawing your attention to you own unique qualities, urging you to free yourself from limitations and inhibitions, such as outworn habits, customs, and other peoples’ expectations of you. Jupiter has an “expansive” influence, increasing your belief in yourself and others, and hence your confidence and generosity. So Jupiter helps you to believe in your ability to reach your full potential, and also to take a generous view of those who may oppose you, due to their fear of change.

In April Jupiter moves on, followed by Uranus, replaced by Saturn in square aspect. From May to September Saturn is the only influence on your natal sun, moving slowly back and forth over the latter half of the Early Leo group. Those born around 26th-27th July will feel his influence very intensely around early July especially. The summer could therefore be a difficult period for you, in marked contrast to the free-flowing energies of the January-March period. Saturn has the opposite effect to Jupiter, drawing your attention to the limitations intrinsic to a life on earth. For any planet, the square is the most difficult aspect. Your plans are frustrated, progress is slow, with many setbacks, rules and persons in authority seem determined to obstruct you. There are two lessons to be learned from this transit, and this by the way is the deep message of astrology. Firstly, whatever happens, it will pass. No transit lasts forever- although time does seem to pass more slowly during hard Saturn transits! Secondly, as Nietzsche said, “what ever fails to destroy me, can only make me stronger”. Even if you make no progress for the whole summer, you will gain strength and build your powers of endurance simply by standing your ground.

From October to December, Saturn gives way to Uranus in trine aspect, again focused on the latter half of the group. And suddenly life gets so much easier again, and you feel motivated to burst out into the world, expressing your unique qualities, with the added strength that you have gained over the long summer!

 

2013 MID LEO (Born around 1st-10th August).

 Your experience this year will be a sort of mirror image of the “Early Leo” group, as the planets weave in and out between the earlier and middle portions of this sign.

In January-February Saturn squares your natal sun, focused intensely on those born around 2nd-3rd August during mid February. This could therefore be a difficult period for you. Saturn has the opposite effect to Jupiter, drawing your attention to the limitations intrinsic to a life on earth. For any planet, the square is the most difficult aspect. Your plans are frustrated, progress is slow, with many setbacks, rules and persons in authority seem determined to obstruct you. There are two lessons to be learned from this transit, and this by the way is the deep message of astrology. Firstly, whatever happens, it will pass. No transit lasts forever- although time does seem to pass more slowly during hard Saturn transits! Secondly, as Nietzsche said, “what ever fails to destroy me, can only make me stronger”. Even if you make no progress for the whole period, you will gain strength and build your powers of endurance simply by standing your ground.

In March-April Saturn is first joined by Jupiter (sextile), then Uranus (trine) at the end of April. Jupiter’s influence passes swiftly over the whole group, while Uranus is focused on those having earlier August birth dates. These are both harmonious influences, so you should aim to make the most of this helpful combination. Uranus has an “individualising” quality, drawing your attention to you own unique qualities, urging you to free yourself from limitations and inhibitions, such as outworn habits, customs, and other peoples’ expectations of you. Saturn is still with you, but you can hopefully get more benefit from his influence now that it’s combined with the other two. “Awareness of limitation” motivates self-discipline, and an organised, practical approach with careful planning and preparation. Jupiter’s brief input has an “expansive” influence, increasing your belief in yourself and others, and hence your confidence and generosity. This helps you to believe in your ability to reach your full potential, and also to take a generous view of those who may oppose you, due to their fear of change.

In May Saturn has fallen back, and Jupiter moves on by the middle of the month, leaving only the Uranus trine aspect from Mid May to September. Life seems much easier now, you feel you can realise your full potential, helped by the practical preparations you’ve made earlier and the powers of endurance you have built.

From October to December this gives way to a Saturn square, working its way steadily across the whole group. So for a while, life gets tough again. This too will pass, but in the mean time you can be consolidating whatever you’ve achieved, getting things onto a firm footing, firmly grounded in the real world.

 

2013 LATE LEO (Born around 11th-22nd August).

 An uneventful year for your sun sign, although you could experience powerful and life changing transits to your natal moon, planets or ascendant, which an individual birth chart analysis would reveal. Jupiter sextiles your natal sun in May-June, moving swiftly through the whole group. His brief influence is a time of optimism, confidence and generosity. Make the most of it, but beware of parasites who take advantage of your kindness, and remember that any big ideas you may conceive will require effort before they can be realised. By the end of December life may be getting harder, more frustrating, for the earliest-born in this group as they begin to feel the approaching Saturn square.
