Monthly Horoscope Leo January 2018
Written by Kurt Franz
January – Saving the Best for Later
The sun will be in Capricorn at the beginning of the year, forming a quincunx aspect to Leo. This means you should think about whether it’s time for a realignment in some areas of your life. If so, you should take some concrete steps to make it happen. Starting on January 20th, the sun will move into Aquarius. This puts it into an opposition position, so you should expect to face certain obstacles. Some people might seem to work against you. This might be difficult to understand, but that’s just how life is sometimes. The main thing is that you’re aware it’s coming. If so, you can take steps to counteract the issue - Leos are great at taking action, after all!
Need to Make a Change?
Mercury will be in Capricorn, which is a highly favorable position. It won’t be staying there for long, however - just through January 10th. Since lots of people go on vacation during this time, you won’t be experiencing many disputes. In fact, communication will be going great. Mercury will then move back into Capricorn on January 11th to form a quincunx aspect like the sun. This is a good time to think about whether you’re satisfied with your career, or whether you need to make a change.
Venus is Ill-Tempered ...
Venus will be in Scorpio through January 17th. This will be a square position, which is definitely less than optimal. Matters of the heart will be less than satisfactory, unless you’ve found a new love. Venus is the goddess of love after all, as well as art and beauty. You might see the less favorable - perhaps even bad or ugly - side of the planet during this time, however. This might be something as simple as a terrible meal when you’re dining out.
You might also meet vulgar people during this time, or have other similarly unpleasant experiences. Or you might feel like things are just piling up around you, as you struggle to make sense of it all. Luckily, things will change for the better again starting on January 18th.
Mars will also form a square at the beginning of the month, and will remain in that position through January 25th. You should definitely watch out for brash or aggressive behavior, since Mars will be sending lots of excess energy. If you can channel all that energy into athletic activities, you’ll be able to avoid a lot of arguments.
