Leo Monthly Vedic Astrology Horoscope: January 2020
Your Monthly Horoscope by Pamela McDonough
First the solar eclipse and then Sun has to run the gauntlet past Saturn and then Pluto! January 10-13 may feel a bit heavier than usual. If you are tired, just go with it and know that the energy will shift dramatically for you by mid-January!
For the remainder of the month, Sun will be in hard working Capricorn. OK, so NOT the favorite zodiac sign of the Sun, but after Sun’s trip through Sagittarius with Saturn, Pluto and Ketu, plus the eclipse, things are still going to feel a whole lot better than they have. Now that winter solstice is behind us Sun energy is returning and light increasing (at least in the northern hemisphere). Day by day, your main planet Sun will be gaining in strength until we reach Summer Solstice.
Mars is strong in your fourth house of home and happiness for the entire month (and beyond), so make good use of this fiery energy and clear that clutter!
Full Moon - Lunar Eclipse January 10, 2020
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 10 occurs in the zone of your chart related to your earnings, broader groups of friends and business networks and older brothers or sisters, if you have them. If you can, hold off on any important decisions that relate to these areas of your life - such as asking for a raise or bonus, or raising your rates if you are self-employed, or trying to mend a fence with an older until a few days after the eclipse.
Saturn changes signs!
Finally! Saturn is not the easiest of planets for Leo rising (actually it is the most difficult energy to manage for Leo’s!) and the planetary pile up in Sagittarius that included Saturn has been intense, especially during the last six months! Romance, children, investments all may have had some obstacles or issues during that time. That said, Saturn is moving on down the road on January 23 AND he is headed into his own sign, Capricorn for the first time since 1990. Woohoo! Good news for everyone, but particularly for you Leo since Saturn in Capricorn will be landing in your sixth house. An excellent sign and house for Saturn by transit for Leo’s! With Saturn in your sixth for the next few years you will be busy – no doubt about it. This is the house of work, service, your daily routine and healing.
Those in the healing profession will experience great results in healing during this time, but only after a lot of hard work (remember, we are talking about Saturn here!). And if you want to heal something within yourself, this will be an excellent time for that, too.
New Moon January 24, 2020
The first new Moon of the year just happens to take place in Capricorn, and on the day after Saturn moves into Capricorn! What terrific timing! This new Moon will give you the opportunity to set your intentions for your work during the new year and will be fully supported by the ruler of the sign Saturn. Such a rare occurrence – be sure to take advantage of this new Moon in Capricorn in Shravana nakshatra. It’s a beauty!
