LEO - January 2024 Forecast

Preferably read for your rising sign <3 if you don’t know how to find your rising sign click here: 

TLDR; sorry for the devastating news that is... the spotlight being on other people and not you this time around, Leo. </3

High fortune days (astrologically better-than-average days imo): Jan 8 (Moon/Venus conjunction) and Jan 18 (Moon/Jupiter conjunction).

We start the new calendar year off on a clean slate, with Mercury being the last visible planet to station direct. Mercury (significator of: speech, travel, finances, children, students) begins to move again with forward progress, cleaning up the details of our lives that have been slowly undoing themselves since December 12th. Mercury has been moving backwards from your 6th House to your 5th House, re-evaluating/reviewing/reorganizing matters relevant to your physical health, pets, creative projects, children, and allies since December 12th. Additionally, Mars has been in close contact with Mercury during the latter half of the retrograde, likely adding moments of aggravation & undesired intensity to matters already going awry. Things are moving forward & getting better than before, it just might take the whole month for you to realize it! 

Mars enters Capricorn on January 4th, increasing overall strength in the battles we face every day. Mars gains dignity in the sign of Capricorn, and by extension,  so do Mars-ruled people, places, and things. This “strength in battle” is especially relevant to the topics of 6th house (illness/injury, pets). Mars rejoices in the 6th House, making this an auspicious transit for Leo risings. If the 6th house is the place of illness, then Mars is the white blood cells that fight against illness. Look to support from your Taurus 10th house, where Jupiter is actively transiting. Good things at your job seem to aid whatever conflict might transpire in the 6th house.

The Sun and Moon join each other on January 11th, ringing in the start of the first lunar cycle of 2024. Otherwise referred to as the “Capricorn New Moon,” this fresh start reflects a heightened priority of the long-term and the short-term decisions we can make to attract the future we want. Happening for you in the 6th house, matters relevant to your physical health (and pets if you have any) demand renewal & new beginnings of any size. It would be auspicious to begin a new health regimen under this weather.

We welcome the Aquarius solar season on the 20th of January, shifting focus from matters of the 6th house to matters of the 7th house. Like Capricorn, this solar season remains under the influence of Saturn, though everyone is a bit louder about the growing sense of melancholy and rejection. For Leo risings however, the spotlight isn't on you for once (kidding!). But really, the focus is on other people in your life and the things others involve you in. This might be a contentious time for Leos since your ruler (The Sun) loses dignity in the sign of Aquarius. Your vigorous nature slows down during this season and life redirects your attention to think about what is best for the group, instead of the self.

A day after we shift the collective focus on Aquarius, Mercury leaves their post-shadow phase and begins to travel through unexplored Capricorn territory. In layman’s terms, by January 21st, we will have revisited everything that needed to be revisited since the Mercury retrograde of  December 12th. Stagnancy is out, moving forward is in! Look forward to new events coming your way concerning details in the 6th House (illness/injury, pets). 

As if we weren’t done with the Capricorn side of things, Venus decides to join the party on January 23rd. Similar to Mars, Venus gains (some) dignity in the sign of Capricorn. She is not formally exalted in the sign like Mars is, but she does behave more preferably in earthy, nocturnal signs. Especially after her run-ins with Saturn at the beginning of the month, events under her influence begin to cool down and gain a sense of discernment. 

Since Venus is the natural significator of relationships, friendship, mothers, sisters, marriages- it is likely to see or experience a certain “return to logic” where relationships with others are concerned. In short, Venus in Capricorn is family heirlooms, unearthed wedding rings, preserved makeup, the lawful maintenance of cave paintings. Beautiful things that stand in need of duty, obligation, commitment, and/or practicality are noteworthy descriptors of this Venus season.

Pay attention to the things that add sweetness in places where it’s easy to forget there is any. The harshness or difficulty manifesting in your 6th house will be thankful for the introduction of Venus at its events!

January 25th brings us the Aquarius/Leo full moon, the first one of 2024! A completion, culmination, release, and (maybe) a party is happening in your 1st and 7th houses.  If you’ve been meaning to have that conversation with someone you care about, use this transit to fully bring things to light! Full moons encourage enlightening interactions, take advantage of this if you’re able to. Otherwise, enjoy the high buzz of energy that lingers towards the end of the month. 

Mercury catches up to Mars in the sky and conjoins him in the sign of Capricorn on January 26th. Mars and Mercury have been tailing each other closely for some time now in the sky, reflecting aggression and aggravation to the topics associated with Mercury (see above). With this meeting happening under Saturn’s influence in Capricorn, it’s wise to expect some around this time.

Things cool off towards the end of the month as Mercury gains speed and bypasses Mars. January certainly leaves the world on an awkward and vaguely bitter note going into February.
