December 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Leo
The planets are hanging out and transiting in the middle of your chart this month. With most of them transiting your 5th and 6th houses this month, you will be quite focused on having fun, but will still be able to take care of daily responsibilities.
You will be happy, lovely Leo, that Saturn leaves your 5th house of fun into your 6th house of work and responsibilities on the 20th of this month. This is where Saturn should be! The 5th house and Saturn really clash, and you may have been feeling out of your element for the past 2 years. Perhaps you have not been as social, or you have had inhibitions about your lively personality. The 5th house mirrors your fun, pleasure seeking personality, so you and Saturn may not have hit it off so well. This is why Saturn's move will perk you up in the best of ways! You will feel grounded in the aspects of your life that you want to be serious about, such as duties at home, work, and in your personal life. You will work hard and play hard, too! Saturn here also influences you to take better care of your health. You may have let your fitness goals and dietary habits go to the wayside, but Saturn will not let you escape it this time! Over the next few years, you will be very focused on having a healthier lifestyle. You will need good health for all of the partying you will be doing anyways!
Mercury, your financial planet, will be in retrograde from the 3rd to the 23rd this month. Retrogrades are usually not good times to make any big decisions, especially financial ones. However, Mercury will be transiting through your 5th house, which is an auspicious alignment, even in retrograde. Be realistic about spending and saving, but don't be afraid to take small risks, either. Cash flow will be steady throughout the month, with minor setbacks here and there. You will also feel like money should be used for fun and pleasure instead of practical things this month. The Universe encourages you to spend and be merry. However, be smart especially until the 23rd. After that, you can go wild! Any investments you make during the month might feel like they are standing still until the end of the month However, they will yield great returns if you are patient!
Venus is in your 5th house this month, beginning on the 1st. You will be filled with creative expression, vitality, and passion. You are a natural entertainer, and Venus in this house makes sure that you are beautiful and exciting for an audience! You will be focused on outer appearances, but not in an overly vain way. You will use your physical attributes to express yourself, creatively and naturally. You do need to keep your ego in check during December though, as you have the tendency to be self-centered. This alignment might make you demand attention from others, even if you are not aware of it. If you are in a relationship, make sure that your partner does not feel overwhelmed by your expectations. While loyal to a fault to your loved ones, you can also be a flirt when Venus is in this sector, so dating you is not always easy for those who are less secure. If you are a single Leo, you will attract a lot of partners this month and have several opportunities for romance. Your generosity and grand gestures will sweep your crush off their feet in no time. As always, your sex life will be soaring, so get ready for another active month!
Mars is in your 4th house from December 9th onward. This is the house of family and home. This alignment has positive and negative connotations. On one hand, you will feel fiercely protective of your friends and family. This may manifest as you picking fights with others on behalf of a loved one, or getting angry because you cannot censor what other people say. You are on the warpath, and will let nothing get in the way of you being a warrior for the ones you love. You may also feel passive-aggressive or controlling, even of your family members, as much as you care about them. Mars brings out the masculine, aggressive side of your personality. You might get in fights with loved ones easily this month, so be mindful of what you say and how you say it. On the other hand, you will work tirelessly to make sure that your family is comfortable and happy. It is a great time to work on projects to make the home more inviting and peaceful. If you are feeling frustrated, direct communication is always the best policy when Mars is in this sector. No one will be able to read you, and they definitely do not want to get you mad! You are action oriented, and this way you will tackle the situation head-on. Be honest, be open, and be kind, dear Leo.
Jupiter remains in your 4th house of family and home, and will be here until late next year. This alignment will inspire you to expand your family unit, either in size or in quality. If you are considering having children, use this time wisely to assess how you feel, but you are definitely lucky under Jupiter's rule, and he will ensure as much as possible that this happens for you if you desire! Your health will be so-so this month. Saturn in the 5th house indicates that you really need to pay attention to your body and physical symptoms. If you feel depressed, this is normal, as Saturn's transit was really challenging this time around. However, do pay attention to your symptoms and address them meticulously.
Overall, December will be a welcomed transition for you, and it certainly reflects more of your outgoing personality. The stars are on your side, and you are ready to take on the world, Leo!
