Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — The world is in a state running contrary to your astrology, in a big way that you’re likely noticing. The Sun and many planets are moving through Aries, your 9th house. This is the house of the great big world, where you’re going to discover yourself and the scope of your potential. Long distance travel to exotic places is the first quality of this house in a modern context. Yet the world is living in contraction right now. Limits are being placed on everything, especially travel, and it seems the intent is to make these structures permanent. This is all based on fear. If the 9th house is about anything at all, it’s the opposite of being a prisoner of anxiety. The tension between these two factors is illustrated by the long-term presence of Chiron in this house. You are going to find yourself one way or the other. Yet 9th house Chiron transits almost always come with the need or desire to travel, for the purpose of discovery and growth. This is neither tourism nor spiritual tourism. I suggest you lay out your options. Start with the big list of what you might do if you could. Then start to evaluate your possibilities. The other critical element here is study: of the worldly, the spiritual and of oneself. Often those who are seekers contain their study to Buddhism rather than to calculus or art history, thinking there’s more to discover there about the ways of love and mysteries of life. I have not found that to be true. The 9th house wants to learn, and when possible, learn from experience and practice. You would do equally well visiting sacred native lands near your home as you would seeing the Great Pyramid. Whatever you’re learning, you want to soak in it for a while.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2021

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Have you let go of all the difficulties and challenges you faced last year, and the two years prior? It was all a lot, though you’re in all new territory now. It’s time to fully catch up with yourself and not leave any part of you lingering behind. Use these last few weeks of the solar year to tidy up old business. Get out of commitments that you’re not interested in, and close the book on them. The New Moon on the 13th would be an excellent time to aim for that process, and will give you plenty of time to both state and act on your intentions. When the Sun enters your fellow fire sign Aries on the 20th, you will want to proceed forward without hindrances and unresolved or dangling matters. So make your decisions and act on them. You do not need nostalgia. There may have been positive things about the past, though there is more that you’re ready to move on from. There is only one way to do that, and that is simply to do it. The sooner you start, the sooner you will be able to take care of whatever personal business this entails. There are many factors in your chart indicating that now is the time to clear out old situations and relationships. You have power tools that will help you establish better boundaries, which begin with you being able to say the words, “I want.” They are more important than “I need,” which always must come with some justification. Desire is its own value, not subject to external review. You want what you want, and you must make that known. The exercise here is stating your intentions for your life, and ensuring that you are the only one who makes that declaration.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2021

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — The Full Moon takes place in your birth sign this month, and describes you in the position of the outlier. While much of the world has been swallowed and is being digested in the belly of the beast, you remain outside of most of what you see and hear. You are on your own journey, which requires you to face the world with better tools than fear, being judgmental or resisting anything seemingly different from yourself. Fortunately, those resources exist. And fortunately, not everyone thinks the same way or believes the same thing. Yet the way to get close to people is to foster intimacy with yourself. That means recognizing you are on a distinct journey that others may not understand, which you must embrace. A journey means traveling from day to day. You do not need a planned itinerary. Rather, wake up each day and plot your destination. Account for what you must do, for what you want to do, and for what has some flexibility. If you need assistance from someone, choose someone who is cooperative and who likes being helpful. There are likely to be a lot of new people in your environment, and they are not all cut of the same cloth. You must pay attention to what they say, and what you deduce that they actually know. In all ways, strive to make your life simpler and easier. The past few years have not exactly delivered proof that this is possible, though we are now in a new day and a new phase of human history. Yet not everyone knows this. You can afford to do what so few dare to do: live for the day, each and every day.

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — In some ways, the condition of your relationships will make much more sense once the Sun has entered your opposite sign Aquarius. There, it joins a grouping that includes Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. This new, once-ever set of transits has brought sweeping changes into your world and your personal engagements, which may not make sense in the way that you like things to. Now, imagine that your ruling body, the Sun, is going to make direct contact with all of them over the next few weeks. Think of this as being taken on a personal tour of your new world, and the new world that is emerging. I would remind you to be intimidated by no person; and most particularly, by their fears. These days we are seeing the emergence of the ethic, “You must be terrified of what I am terrified of,” and that will never work to produce a sane, functional world. Nor will, “You must do only what makes me comfortable.” That is not freedom, it is tyranny — and you were born free, and are entitled to live that way.

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — There’s just one way to get through what you’re going through, which is to proceed and make progress every day, or every hour. A little is a lot: work in increments, and do not judge your success or failures. Rather, stay with yourself. Be present for your own experience. That is its own value, and that is your power. Yes, you may feel like a wedge moving through a tight space. But you have more strength, flexibility and freedom than you may think. You think you’re surrounded, but what you really are is at the center, and the things around you are smaller than you are. They are also potent, but you are the source of the energy in your environment. You define the symbols. You give your life its meaning, and only you have the power to take it away. What you have now is the opportunity for one of the most transformational moments of your life. This is on one level being aided by extraordinarily rare environmental factors. Yet it’s also your time to emerge in a new form with new substance. It is time to claim your truth.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #258 for January 7, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — There may suddenly be a lot of people in your life, and you need to figure out who is who and what is what. Go through each person individually rather than thinking of them as a group. Make your own assessment of who serves what purpose, who is loyal to whom, and track issues such as loyalty and intelligence yourself rather than taking such matters solely on anyone’s say-so. The single most important human quality to focus on is spiritual affinity. This goes deeper than ego, ability, or stated intention. It’s a resonance that you might spot right away, and in some people, that might emerge over time. This is why you need to be observant and identify what motivates people. If you do this for a while, you will make some important and long-lasting friends. Time, however, is the only test of truth, and you must be honest with yourself about what you observe in people’s characters. The problem of corruption is now down to the level of the individual. Pay attention.

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Suddenly everything is more tangible and immediate. This is about your partnerships and intimate relationships, and it’s also about the total environment that surrounds you. The first thing to do is take notice of how you’re perceiving people and circumstances differently. Under transits of Jupiter and Saturn through your opposite sign Aquarius, the world will seem different in many ways, including the appearances, and behaviors of people you encounter. Study those changes before you act on them. Map out the new social territory, even as it evolves and takes form. Everyone has experienced these sign changes simultaneously, so everyone is adapting at the same time. It’s likely that people will make decisions quickly about where they stand, and try to lock into a new pattern prematurely. That is the mistake to avoid. Hang loose for a while and see what people do. You don’t need first dibs on anything; understand what you want, and be willing to take the time to get there. The new structure of your world is likely to look something like this: you see possibilities and limitations, without necessarily recognizing that these are just the first layer. The idea is to get past that, first by recognizing that there’s more behind the façade, or if it turns out to be a barricade or locked door, there’s something in there. To get it, you need all those Saturnian skills of patience, persistence, daily effort, and working in an organized way. Yet there is also what will seem to be a luck factor. It’s more of a “make your own luck” factor however, and that has all the same ingredients as Saturn only add being friendly — to everyone, all the time.
