Your career is peaking right now and it seem that you simply can do know wrong when it comes to work-related activities. With the Sun crossing your chart and entering your 10th house on the 20th, this career activity is only going to intensify. You are no doubt making great strides in your career. You feel you're at the top of the charts, in complete control of every aspect of your life (with the possible exception of your children) and that you are moving along a dearly-loved and much-deserved path toward a better life. Leo is sitting on the throne, as all kings should, and you are completely comfortable there.
In typical Leo fashion, you not only feel you must be in control of your own life, but must control the lives of others nearby as well. While this can sometimes work to your advantage, but when it comes to romance—particularly if you involved with someone with a strong will of his or her own—chances are your attitude will work against you. In fact, if you are not very careful and accommodating, you may find yourself alone again, which is something—whether you admit it or not—you're not comfortable with. On your own you do poorly and tend to simply go through the motions of happiness, fooling no one, not even yourself. In short, sometimes even the king must take a back seat and admit that compromise can be the best solution.
This situation is exacerbated by the possibility that your special someone has not been particularly happy lately. In fact, your significant other may simply be "going through the motions" as well. It's possible he or she is only biding time as they plan their "escape." If you hope to hang on to what you have, you're going to have to change your ways and stop being such a dictator. Admit to yourself that there are some situations over which you simply have no control. You'll be happier once you do this.
Domestic issues may arise this month, but you're so focused on career right now that you may have a tough time dealing with them. Even if they are addressed straight away, there's the likelihood they will take a great deal of time to fully resolve. Sometime during the month, you find you will have to review your attitude with regard to your domestic situation, perhaps even your marital status. Some things just can't be put off any longer and you're going to have to deal with them.
Though Pluto is in retrograde the overall momentum of the planets is still forward. Your financial planet, Mercury, was in retrograde last month, but that's over as of the 4th and by the 22nd to 24th you'll witness a sudden, unexpected surge in your financial acumen. You suddenly have the ability to make wise decisions with regard to money and you could find yourself in a new business venture or partnership. The support of friends proves very advantageous at this time.
Your health should be watched carefully after the 20th, however no major problems are likely to emerge. You may find yourself feeling a bit more vulnerable due to shortages in energy and stamina.
