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!
Avoid heading to the mall early in the day, when you're likely to overdo it. Don't go overboard on any significant or costly purchases. Later in the day you find it easier to stay within your budget as you go about the holiday shopping.
That heart of yours is making life sweeter for one special person -- maybe a family member? You find it easy to show people the brighter side of nearly any situation, and should lift a few moods.
National Date Nut Bread Day means one thing: get baking! The loaves will freeze and store beautifully, which means you get to have a high-fiber snack on hand over the next couple of hectic weeks, not to mention hostess gifts for any shindigs you'll be attending.
A little harmless flirtation never hurt anyone -- in fact, these days, it's almost certain to help your blah mood! Better leave the ho-hum pantsuit or big, shapeless sweater at home. Put a little extra attention into today's look instead.
