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 discover an app or computer program or other tool that makes your life easier early in the day. What's more you'll master it easily. Later, it's all about tackling an unfinished project, like your kiddo's holiday pageant costume.
You are in the middle of something new -- and it almost certainly involves learning! Try not to get tripped up on anything too intricate, but let yourself explore what the world has to offer.
On National Cocoa Day, do something that you do well and ask for the best. This may mean making a cup of cocoa at home, complete with handmade marshmallows. It might mean going to a Mexican cafe and getting a cup of artisanal chili-spiced cocoa.
An earth-friendly attitude is the right kind of attitude -- instead of creating more waste, find ways to use what you already possess. Repurposing is the name of the game. Old t-shirts make a fantastic new quilt, while tattered jeans transform into a funky handbag.
