2012: Leo Overview
This is a year of fabulous fortune for you, Leo, especially in the career realm. You'll have jolly Jupiter on your team for the first half of 2012 while in the sign of loyal Taurus; during the year's second half, you'll have the lucky planet blessing your long-range goals and wishes. And if that's not enough of a cosmic bonus, Jupiter will also bring good things to your social life from July through the end of the year. Expect unprecedented party invites and new friends pouring into your life by the time summer arrives!
Mars will activate your financial sector for the first half of 2012, so expect a good portion of your energy to go into making (and spending) money. The first quarter of the year is a good time to conserve your resources and put more effort and reflection into how you can double your investments and increase your earning potential. When Mars comes out of retrograde in May, you'll be able to trust your instincts and spend your money more freely.
The eclipse season begins in May -- just in time to shake up your romantic sector for the summer! The new Moon solar eclipse in May brings the year's first winds of change into your love life. You may or may not be expecting such intensity in your romantic life, but you'll welcome it all the same. You've been daring life to take you on, and now you can finally meet a partner capable of handling your towering strength and confidence. After all, isn't it about time you met your match? And now that Saturn is moving out of your communication sector -- after two-and-a-half years of blocking your ability to speak from the heart -- you'll be back to your old outspoken self after October!
Friendship will be a big theme for you today. You may meet a special mom at day care or the office or the gym who could become a very special friend over time. Or you'll reconnect with a gal pal you lost touch with.
How much influence does technology have over you? Even if you're something of a Luddite, today is still great for bringing a new gadget into your life. Think of it as a different kind of tool.
Today is National Strawberries and Cream Day. Nothing but the best works for you, so make sure your fruit is organic. When it comes to the cream part of this dish, try whipping half buttermilk and half cream for a wonderful tart, full taste.
Simplify your day wherever you can: Pick a dress over separates, simple studs over shoulder-dusting earrings and a fresh-faced look over full makeup. Your energy may be needed for non-fashion-related issues.
