Leo Overview

Leo 2021 Horoscope

from Horoscope.com

This is a huge year for your exuberant sign, Leo! There is so much going on, that it is often hard to keep track of all the wonderful goodies in store for your sign of the Lion! A major component of this year is also learning how to let go and surrender to the unknown.

The theme for your fire sign is to have the patience to know that it will all end up exactly the way it is supposed to be! Along these lines, you are met with incredible tests of faith throughout 2021 that will leave you flabbergasted at how awesome it is to be yourself! There will be some emotional tests and energetic changes, but with your commanding presence, you’ll be able to handle it all with ease.

The year begins with a strong mid-January square between Jupiter in your opposing sign of Aquarius and Uranus in fellow fixed sign Taurus, creating a challenging T-square energy in your chart. This isn’t the easiest of configurations to deal with at all, requiring extreme self-care in many circumstances.

This T-square affects all realms of your life, and is also brought around again with the Saturn in Aquarius square to Uranus in Taurus, spanning a cosmic influence through mid-February, mid-June, and late December. These will be time periods where you’ll face a ton of internal and external friction, and in many cases, can be a certain straw that breaks the camel’s back with respect to your career, relationships, and public life.

Finally, this year’s lunar eclipses will also trigger some important cycles highlighting your personal zones of self-expression, professional relationships, and community development in May, June, November, and December.

Couples

For those members of the Lion tribe, you might find yourself in a lot of new and different love scenarios this year. If you’ve kept the details of any long-term romantic connection hidden for a better part of the year or years, this might be the time for you to break out and allow people to see you as a team rather than a lone leader.

This is particularly important for those Leos considering opening a family business or connecting love and financial prosperity in some capacity. Couples may have to make some pretty off-the-beaten-track decisions that make no sense to the outside world at all. You might even consider moving in with your partner to save money, or moving to a less expensive place together in order to increase your quality of life.

The May 26 total lunar eclipse zooms through your personal fifth house of children, expression, and creativity, awakening your need to expand your life for the better to bring you and your partner the keys to the kingdom.

There’s also a little shift that goes on communication-wise, but you can really come to a decision after June, once the solar eclipse in Gemini (7/10) and Mercury retrograde ends (7/22). This sets-up your personal birthday season for true success and life-transforming decisions for you and your partnership.

As the year kicks out with another fiery eclipse—this time a total solar wave through Sagittarius—you are absolutely aware of the gifts that you are being given, so sit on that throne of yours right next to your loved one and be willing to receive!

Singles

A major realization that comes this year is about who has once held the key to your heart, Leo. 2020 gave you a taste of what was to come this year. You might even consider entering a longer-term relationship even before you are fully prepared. Try and hold a little caution to the wind, especially during the time you are dealing with some heavier vibes between February, May, and December.

For a single Leo, this might just feel like your time to throw in the towel. Remember, everyone is feeling kind of crazy during this year’s square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. But for you, this can detract from committed attachments and for some Leos, it can even lead to a full-out separation. You might just feel tired of being tied down in some way, and long to break free from the cycles of the past. Some Leos might even be leaving long-term relationships and will be re-entering the dating field if they don’t feel like they are in an equal partnership. This may have been more prevalent for those Lions who’ve felt like something is missing, but you just haven’t been able to put your claw on it!

This year’s eclipse cycles are quite helpful at getting you out of your comfort zone. With all the Aquarian energy floating through your personal seventh house, this can also have an opposite effect on your personality. Maybe you could find love with someone who is totally different from you? Maybe they have a very distinct style from yours, but you kind of dig them. This is something you’ll continually find replays of in your love life in 2021—it’s about the unique and unusual this year. So try expanding your dating palate by connecting with someone who is out of the ordinary!

Money & Career

There’s a plethora of abundance that can be gained from 2021’s eclectic transits. You might even consider switching careers by the time you make your way through the year ahead. Financially, you are in pretty awesome standing. There have been a ton of ups and downs in the world around you, but your fighting sign has seemed to find a way for yourself to make it through the many storms.

You definitely recognize that there is no magical solution to hard work! You are here to do this task for sure, and might have multiple titles under your belt. Your multifaceted method of managing your time makes you truly unstoppable even through the shifts created by the Jupiter-Uranus square in January and February. At this time, there’s a major reflecting energy that ties things together for you. And you might even receive a pay raise, but it requires you to put in extra hours and long nights.

There’s also a feeling of playing catch up in some capacity, especially during the later parts of May through June, as Mercury retrograde in Gemini slows your communication through your personal zone of community development and popularity. This is a good timeframe to connect to your favorite hobbies and consider turning them into a business opportunity down the road.

The influential transit of Saturn in Aquarius in square to Uranus in Taurus brings poignant professional developments, specifically inciting the need for personal change through key events of the year. February, June, and December will be those times for your sign of the Lion to take charge and not worry about what other people think about you.

tn_5-CANCELEOCANCELEO (CANCER/LEO) – July 19 – July 25

Zodiac Position:  Approximately 26° Cancer–3° Leo  Season:  Mid-summer  Elements:  Water/Fire  Qualities:  Cardinal/Fixed  Rulers:  The Moon/The Sun  Symbols:  The Crab/The Lion  Mode:  Feeling/Intuition

Also called the Cusp of Oscillation, the CANCELEO is an overlapping and admixture of the fourth sign of the zodiac, Cancer, and the fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo.  The CANCELEO can be symbolically likened to the period around twenty-eight years of age in the human life, and literally arrives during the full heat and long days of summer in the northern hemisphere.  The CANCELEO could be characterized as having Oscillating energy.  Astrologically, this time marks the completion of one full cycle of the planet Saturn (which takes twenty-eight or twenty-nine years to return to the position in the zodiac it occupied at the time of one’s birth) and also to the planet Uranus having moved to occupy a position approximately 120 degrees around the zodiac from its position at birth.  Both of these important planetary transits correspond to a point in human development, around the age of twenty-eight, when childhood, puberty, adolescence and young adulthood may be viewed for the first time to take stock of their lives – to evaluate them, and to attempt to plan for the future.  Often this is a time of identity crisis, and a time of change.  Marriages, breakups, seeking new jobs, moving to another city or setting up a new house are often encountered here.  The cyclic nature of the Cancer/Leo cusp underlines the oscillating energies found at this point in life, and the uncertainties and indecisions which manifest.

The days which comprise the CANCELEO cusp reveal some of the instability felt during this period and also emphasize the need for decisiveness.  The conflicting energies of more inward, sensitive Cancer (ruled by the Moon) and more outward, fiery Leo (ruled by the Sun) are also reflected here.

THE CANCELEO PERSONALITY:   Those born on the Cancer/Leo cusp tend to have rather volatile personalities that can quickly swing from one extreme to the other.  Actually, many forms of movement, change and flux typify those born on this cusp.  Not only physical movement (travel, change of address, adventure, sports, etc.) but also oscillations in the realms of thought and emotion are characteristic.  CANCELEOS can appear shy and retiring one moment and dynamic and active the next, reflecting a clash of the watery sensitivity of Cancer with the fiery assertiveness of Leo.  An obvious task for those born on this cusp will be to dampen the extremes of their fluctuations, flattening out their activity curve to more of a straight line, and to reconcile and integrate conflicting tendencies.

CANCELEOS tend to be vibrant, energetic, exciting individuals who feel a need to seek out challenges and overcome them.  Often, physical disciplines and the mastery of the body play a great role in their development.  Not only strength but also grace of movement can be a focus for them.

ADVICE FOR CANCELEOS:   Even out the highs and lows; the rewards of stability are great.  Cultivate self-discipline but never lose your spontaneity.  Build a calm center which bolsters your confidence and remains at the heart of your being.  Concentrate more on living in the moment, free of past problems and future expectations.  Pace yourself for the long haul.

CANCELEO ATTRACTIONS:   CANCELEOS are generally most attracted to other cusp people, particularly LIBRASCORP (Libra/Scorpio) and AQUARICORN (Capricorn/Aquarius) cusps.

tn_6-LEOVIRGLEOVIRG (LEO/VIRGO) – August 19 – August 25

Zodiac Position:  Approximately 27° Leo —3° Virgo  Season:  Late Summer  Elements:  Fire/Earth  Qualities:  Fixed/Mutable  Rulers:  The Sun/Mercury  Symbols:  The Lion/The Virgin  Modes:  Intuition/Sensation, Thought

Also called the Cusp of Exposure, is an overlapping and admixture of the fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo, and the sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo.  LEOVIRG can be likened to the period around thirty-five years of age in the human life and also to the actual time of year at which it occurs – the winding down of summer in the northern hemisphere.  During this period of the year, grass must be cut to make hay for the winter, some vegetables harvested and others prepared for harvesting. The days grow shorter and the nights longer, fall approaches and vacation time is almost over.  In human development, at the age of thirty-five, adulthood is in full swing.  This is a period in which the theme of Exposure figures prominently—particularly in terms of personal development, career and family life.  At this time an individual may discover and perhaps reveal to others secret or undiscovered parts of his/her personality.  In doing so, new sources of power may be accessed while a sense of identity is strengthened.  Many women who have not as yet borne children think strongly about doing so, fearing to wait too long.  Both sexes reevaluate their marriages or ongoing relationships, and wish to bring hidden matters out in the open for discussion.  Unattached individuals may seek to define a more meaningful living situation for themselves.

The days which comprise the LEOVIRG cusp exemplify some of the manifestations of Exposure, where the fiery, energetic and aggressive nature of Leo blends or struggles with the rational, meticulous and often secretive nature of Virgo.

THE LEOVIRG PERSONALITY:  In some aspects of character, those born on this cusp are highly secretive individuals, in others, extroverts.  Of course these apparently contradictory elements are only two sides of the same coin.  In order to reveal what has previously been hidden, secrets have to exist in the first place.  Further, one might argue that one reason that things are hidden is so that they can be one day revealed, with maximum impact.  Fortunately, many LEOVIRGS have a good feeling for kairos, that is, the right time to do something.  Masters of effect, they know when to keep silent and when to speak.  Thus both their concealments and revelations can be used as means, techniques, even weapons, to help them achieve their ends in very subtle or dramatic ways.  Every cusp personality comprises conflicting elements, being influenced by two very different adjacent signs.  Fortunately here, an organic dynamic is set up where practical, earthy Virgo elements combine beautifully with intuitive and explosive Leo qualities.  Although intuitive-sensation types, LEOVIRGS also come under the influence of Mercury which promotes logical thought.  The earthiness of Virgo is somewhat mitigated by the influence, as those born on this cusp tend to be more discriminating and less overtly sensual.  The fourth mode, that of feeling, is the one lacking here, and therefore LEOVIRGS may be somewhat out of touch with their own deeper emotions and those of others.

ADVICE FOR LEOVIRGS:  Don’t blame the world for not recognizing you if you hide yourself away.  Be more transparent – let people see what you are really like.  Beware of keeping secrets even from yourself.  Allow others in, to share in both your joys and sorrows.

LEOVIRG ATTRACTIONS:  People born on the Leo/Virgo cusp are generally most attracted to other cusp people, particularly ARIFISH (Pisces/Aries) and TAURINI (Taurus/Gemini) cusps.

Famous Leos

At first, it’s hard not to like those with the Sun in Leo with their open hearted, friendly ways. They often enter a room as a radiant presence that causes everyone to take notice, and are skilled at “working” a crowd for best effect. As a friend, they have a knack for mining a buried dream, polishing it to a shine again, and making anything seem possible.

There’s a public confidence with the Leo Sun that other signs only dream of, which gives them free reign to fully express their creative and social selves. Whether they end up in civil service or on a Broadway stage, chances are they’ll have an audience. When standing proudly before adoring fans (or co-workers), they’re casting out warmth that has a palpable power to win hearts and minds.
