2013: Leo Overview
Get ready to dig deeply in 2013, Leo. You're going into a phase of complete and total metamorphosis. This will require considerable self-analysis and probing into your past patterns, but all the work will be more than worth it. You're on the verge of discovering just how powerful, strong and resilient you are at your very core. If you have ever doubted your strength, after 2013 you'll never question your resourcefulness again. Saturn, the great karmic lord of trials and tribulations, will be camping out at the base of your horoscope until 2015, so you'll have plenty of time to delve into the depths. Family issues and psychological patterns inherited from your parents will come to the surface this year, making your more aware of -- and able to avoid -- negative patterns. Wake up, Leo! Get ready for a major rebirth.
Lucky Jupiter will continue to bring good fortune to your social sector and help you dream big until June. You've been so blessed with the amazing people you've met over the past year who have helped you reach your goals. The second half of the year, you may want to pull back when Jupiter enters your retreat zone. This is a time of dreaming and scheming before launching into the next chapter of your life in 2014. So the first half of the year will continue to be incredibly social, but give yourself permission to come back to a more internal and creative space during the latter part of 2013.
The eclipse patterns of 2013 will shake up both home and career sectors, so get ready for rapid advance and decline in both arenas. Don't get too attached to any of the gains or losses in either of these life departments, as they will constantly be in flux until you reach a healthy middle ground -- and you will!
You may find you want to superglue your tyke to your side. But go ahead and let them go on that sleepover or big school trip with the other kids, as long as they're properly supervised. You need to loosen your grip someday, so make it today.
Your innate sense of pride might end up getting in the way of an important relationship -- so make sure that you're keeping yourself as humble as possible. You're probably in a good mood, at least!
The best lesson from Mediterranean cooking is to find the best ingredients possible and do as little as necessary. Try serving fresh ricotta (it's a surprisingly easy recipe) sweetened with honey and topped with fresh, seasonal fruit.
Are you saving pennies only to waste dollars? Think before you buy another $30 face powder that makes you look blotchy and pale. In certain cases it's better to pay for a higher-end product if you'll actually use it.
