LEO (July 22 - August 22)
Yearly Horoscope for 2013
By Barbara Goldsmith
Uranus is making a favourable trine to your Sun until 2018, but Saturn is in a square aspect to you which indicates a change in your career and in your living situation. You will probably be feeling dissatisfied in either or both of those areas and looking for something new. There will be many adjustments for you to make over the next 5 years, but at the end of them all your life will be much better than it was before.
Work and Money
This is a very innovative and creative period of your life where you can have great ideas and vision that can help you greatly in your work. You need to be very proactive and seek out new avenues for your work or new people to work with. The old relationships no longer inspire nor excite you. Anything connected with technology or media contains great possibilities for your advancement in your career and in your life generally. Keep your profile out there, update it if necessary and do whatever it takes to get yourself noticed. Be assertive and inspirational when you meet new people and keep in mind that your natural enthusiasm is one of your most powerful assets. It enables you to sell your ideas to other people.
Don't expect anything to be handed to you without effort. It will take patience and probably require you to make adjustments in many areas of your life, possibly a move of residence and a change in your relationships. These concerns might hold you back and stop you from reaching out for something new causing delays. However, these are necessary adjustments that will be beneficial for you in the long run so don't be tempted to put everything on hold. This is the year to push forward and to create new opportunities in your work area.
You will need to pay attention to your time management this year and be careful not to take on more than you can comfortably manage. There is a tendency to commit to doing more simply because you know that you can do a job very well yourself, but don't bite off more than you can chew. You are a good delegator, just make sure you delegate the right people for the job.
There are new sources of income for you this year. Projects could come up that give you an extra lump sum possibly when you least expect it. There could also be delays or losses in projects that cannot be completed on time perhaps because you trusted other people who didn't follow through effectively. Make sure that the people you work with are reliable and have the ability to do the work. Resist the urge to squander your resources. If unexpected cash comes your way then put it straight into savings, otherwise it will just get swallowed up by daily expenses. Keep track of where your money goes - you'll be surprised at the savings you can make if you are careful and disciplined.
As far as trading and investment is concerned, it looks like a mixed bag. Some of your investments will work out very well, others could sustain losses especially if you don't get out soon enough. Property investment doesn't look very promising this year, so try to steer clear of that. The middle of 2014 looks better for real estate than 2013 does. There could be extra home expenses or unexpected costs that you will have to cover so make sure you have a bit of a buffer of savings just in case.
The best time for business activities and new projects is from the middle of March until the end of April. Your more challenging times are from the beginning of January to the beginning of February and from the end of April until the 27th May. Try to avoid getting into conflicts during these times. From the end of August until October 15th there will be new opportunities and the possibility of new and exciting projects. Make sure you really put yourself out during that six week period.
In romance, you have a tendency to want all or nothing. You want to be in a relationship but you have very high standards that you set that are sometimes impossible for a potential mate to fulfill. You want love and you want friendship but it has to come up to your expectations. You may have to learn how to compromise more in order to have that love in your life. Or it could be the other way around: maybe you are making too many compromises and not getting what you want either. This year shows that there will be endings in the relationships that come under these two extremes. Where you are being too picky and complaining, or where you are giving too much, be prepared for these relationships to come to an end.
However, if you are able to bring more balance into your relationships, then you will be able to create a successful relationship - either by resuscitating the relationship are you already in, or by letting go of the old one and creating something entirely new.
New people will be attracted to you this year and you have a great charm and vitality to others that they will love. Just make sure you don't impose conditions and demands upon people so that what was light and exciting becomes heavy and demanding and that the joy goes out of the relationship.
There is the opportunity for a new relationship and romance this year but try to break the destructive patterns from the past that keep you from having an enjoyable and fun connection with someone.
The best times for love and romance are from the beginning of January until January 27th, from March 21st to the middle of April, from the end of June until July 22nd and from October 7th until November 6th.
