2007 Horoscope Forecast
Leo the Lion in 2007
will & determination, combined with optimism
It's a year of two fires for you, Leo. First, there's the
slow burn of Saturn, measurer of effort, in your sign. Then,
there's the wildfire blaze of Jupiter in Sagittarius and
your solar fifth house. Saturn will urge you to keep focused,
take authority or responsibility and stay on the path of
your chosen goals or ambitions until he moves from your
sign in early Sep. This is the fire of will and the determination
to see things through or get where you know you have to
go. Hard work, obligation or even solitary action may be
the price. These is a weight that comes with Saturn
However, the fire of giant Jupiter, the lord of fortune,
will uplift you, bringing optimism, enthusiasm, a slice
of luck and a desire for humour and enjoyment. Jupiter is
expansive and alerts you to the wide variety of stimulus,
knowledge and exotic flavours that are just waiting in the
big wide world for you to come and find them. Though the
fires of these two cosmic giants are compatible, the dynamics
of their operation are different. You'll have to run a line
between the more conservative and mature demands of Saturn
and the wildfire of Jupiter as the year unfolds. More especially
so because Jupiter spends a good portion of the midyear
in a holding pattern of tension with the Lunar Nodes, indicating
that if you let the urge take you, you could go too far,
too fast without the backing or foundation you need to support
your efforts. Don't stretch yourself or your finances too
far or the month of September will find you out. Don't let
that caution dampen your spirits though. Jupiter still wants
a party. Give him one. Jupiter moves in reverse on Apr 6th
and forwards on Aug 7th.
On Jul 27th, Venus turns retrograde in Virgo. There may
be a downturn or setback affecting matters of money or love.
There may be interruption or delay in close relations or
dealings. You may experience a temporary separation, a delay
with someone returning or a block with funds. Old contacts
or situations may return. Matters from the past may need
examination and resolution. You feel withdrawn or you may
feel someone is withdrawing from you. Float along. Don't
worry too much. Take it quietly. The solution you're seeking
to any problem or concern is one of personal response. Venus
will move back to your sign on Aug 9th. You may revamp your
image, change your approach or work to improve your relations
with others. Venus moves forward again on Sep 8th.
Dec 19th brings a new cycle of contacts, associations,
partnership and close relations as the Lunar Nodes move
out of Pisces and Virgo and into Aquarius and your sign.
Get ready for some exciting, juicy stuff.
Love and Money
This is a year of romance for the Lion. Jupiter in Sagittarius
decrees it. Those of you in a relationship may up the ante
with emotional commitment or you may aim for a lifestyle
that gives you time and space for shared activities and
adventures. You may fall in love with each other again.
Children may feature for some. Social activity, creative
projects or exciting ventures or journeys will be on the
agenda for others. Those of you that are single will find
you're in the zone for romantic encounters. Entertainment
or social activity will run hot and there'll be plenty of
interest with the people you're meeting and greeting. Some
singles may opt to play the field, not wanting to be tied
down by commitment. Others may meet 'the one' and take it
from there. Those you do encounter may be people from interesting
or exotic backgrounds. Artistic people, people from other
cultures and 'larger than life' characters will play their
parts in the drama of social or romantic life. You may branch
out into new fields of recreational endeavour. Anything
from travelling for sporting or cultural interests to a
dash across the dance floor or a dabble in amateur theatre.
Get out there and do it, Leo!
Money's in focus in the coming year. Three eclipses and
Mercury retrograde will affect your financial houses before
Saturn moves to Virgo on Sep 2nd, urging you to get it right
with personal spending and resources. Sound management and
attention to detail will be important. Planning and preparation
will get you on track. Keep savings aside to deal with small
emergencies. Don't overextend and leave yourself with nothing
in the kitty. You may need to train or learn new skills
to open new lines of income. With Saturn in Virgo, the means
by which you handle money and personal spending will have
to change. Opt for a thrifty approach. Stick to the basics.
Target the purchase of what you want by cutting out what's
not important. No frivolous spending! If you wish to buy
something of value, work towards the purchase by recognizing
how many working hours will go into the purchase price.
Make sure that what you buy will have a practical use. In
the two years that follow, build resources and spending
power through hard work and good money management. Some
of you may learn about 'doing without' during this time.
Some of you may put personal resources or money at risk
in order to gain a greater prize. Saturn moves forward in
Leo on Apr 19th and into reverse motion in Virgo on Dec
Home and Family
Change or development at home will be the upshot of Jupiter's
recent transit in Scorpio and Saturn's continuing movement
in your sign. You may have upgraded at home or you may have
undergone major change of circumstances with family or fittings.
There may still be work to be done at home. There may be
boisterous or dynamic activity there. Males or vigorous
tasks may feature. At times there will be tension or high
emotion and you'll have to work to settle things down. There
may be excitement or activity and you'll need to give it
time to clear. Don't be slack with chores. Run a tidy house,
even if that's sometimes against the odds. Activities at
home may alter the dynamic of your household. There may
be guests, family members or visitors involved with study
or overseas travel or that hail from foreign climes. For
some, new romance or sexual activity might be the dynamic.
It could be hot but feisty. For others, new activities or
interests will add to the atmosphere or the action in the
domicile. One way or another, the home base will be touched
by excitement or change as action, dramatic events or dramatic
people set the tone.
Work and Health
With Venus and Mercury in Capricorn as the year begins,
there'll be another side to relationships this year, a working
one. There'll be focus on negotiations and dealings with
co-workers or staff. You may find that internal relations
in work will occupy your time. The social aspect of work
will be important. Be clear, responsible and mature in dealings
with people and situations related to your work or daily
life. Develop your communication skills. Increase your knowledge
or information load through education.
As for work itself, seek advancement through additional
duties or promotion until early Sep. Through the year, opportunity
or fortune will guide you to a new arena of endeavour if
you're prepared for a risk. Investment, new ventures, creative
expression or activities may contribute. If you want to
get somewhere, do something to get moving. Some may put
money into a business or creative venture, stepping away
from the workaday world. This will mean dramatic change
in lifestyle or work routines. You'll have to be disciplined.
Others may set sail for a different risk, using earnings
to finance lifestyle activities or interests. Take care
the outgoings don't exceed the income. You'll know if that's
going to be so by Sep. On Dec 18th, Jupiter enters Capricorn,
urging study or opening the way for education, advancement
or improvement with work or health conditions.
As far as health is concerned, these last years will have
been testing and you will have had to focus on energy management
and good routines. That's still the case till Sep with Saturn
finishing his journey in your sign. You won't be able to
burn the candle at both ends without being burned. Take
breaks. Engage in necessary recreation as you manage your
work time or your efforts. Exhaustion may be a concern.
Recognize the signs and discipline yourself to take the
right action. If you're suffering, even from minor concerns,
get yourself treated.
Saturn's move to Virgo on Sep 2nd will take some of the
personal pressure off. There may still be concern or worry
over money but it won't be to the same extent as the pressure
or burden of recent years. It's important for the coming
'two year' cycle of Saturn in your solar second house that
you learn and apply the simple management techniques of
ordinary healthcare. Look after yourself better with exercise,
diet and self-nurture. Find the right balance between a
little self-indulgence and proper restraint.
The last cautionary note for the coming year is to do
with Jupiter's transit in Sagittarius. This could easily
lead to excess or indulgence. Don't let it. It's important
to enjoy yourself and relax but it's equally important to
keep a sane and healthy boundary as to how you do so.
There are twin influences with career, professional matters
and responsibilities. Firstly, Saturn is set to complete
his journey in your sign. From Jan till Sep 2nd, Saturn
in Leo will keep you focused on personal responsibility
and authority. Deal with situations, people and decision-making
in a mature manner. You will still have a load to bear and
will rise or fall on your own choices. It's up to you to
carry the burden. But this also means you'll reap the rewards.
However, the other side of the coin is the journey of Jupiter
in Sagittarius and your solar fifth house. It's onward and
upward with new ventures, projects or recreational activity.
You'll want to take a risk or a trip to a destination that's
new, exciting or different. Whether it's to satisfy you
or for a professional concern, embrace your creative ability.
Do something with dance, drama, music or artistic expression.
Some of you may think of teaching or entering a qualified
profession. You may learn a language or skills with foreign
cuisine. Others may simply find new avenues on which to
travel the road of life. Make an art of socializing. Attend
the theatre, the ballet or the opera. One way or another,
you need to take or make the opportunity to enhance your
lifestyle and fulfill yourself through creative or recreational
or romantic activity. Embrace the romance of your life,
Leo. Take a punt or a risk. Put yourself out there.
On Nov 15th, warrior Mars turns retrograde in Cancer.
You may meet opposition with professional aspirations or
in dealings with authority. Males especially will feature.
You may review your action style, your methods or even your
career. Something you've done or worked on may need review.
Your cycle of responsibilities may require a new look. Go
back over old ground. Find a remedy for problems or redo
old work. If there is ill-feeling in someone because of
the past, sit down and work it out. Give others time and
opportunity to let off steam. Watch tension with a young
or emotional male. There may be anger from females or family
members over authority issues. There may simply be delay
or frustration with professional goals or responsibilities.
If feelings boil over in a professional situation, keep
a lid on them till later. Work them off in private. Mars
is in reverse as the year ends.
Mercury the Messenger
Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times
a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds
a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect
arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and
communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function
of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component
failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency
we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde
phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as
putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial
documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury
is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them
again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently
show where problems might lie and help us with damage control
or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these
times! What you think you've said and what others have understood
will often prove to be two different things.
Mercury's first retrograde phase begins in Pisces on Feb
14th. Review joint financial arrangements or obligations.
There may be confusion over spending or just overspending.
Get communications working! Make sure you understand what
others are saying and what they expect with money or payment.
There will be unexpected developments or a surprise turn
of events with money. Stay flexible. Think on your feet.
Keep lines of communication open. There may be confusion
or change with a point of contact or an institution you've
been dealing with over finance. Time and patience will sort
things. Lack of clarity could be a sore point. Mercury moves
back to Aquarius on Feb 27th then forward again on Mar 8th.
Mercury's second retrograde phase begins in Cancer on
Jun 15th. With Mercury in your solar twelfth house, you
may wish to step back, standing at a distance from the hustle
and bustle. There may be confusion or a misunderstanding
in communications. You may have something on your mind and
wish to think it over. Be careful, listening to the advice
of others. It may not be what you need to hear. You may
wish to concentrate on creative endeavours or your inner
or spiritual life. There may be something from the past
you need to reflect upon. Family or domestic concerns may
be prominent. You may not be ready to speak up about a problem
or concern. Take your time. Mercury moves forward on Jul
Mercury's final retrograde phase is in Scorpio, starting
on Oct 12th. Domestic or family matters will feature. There
may be confusion or difficulty with someone close. This
may be a health concern or there may be misunderstanding
or tension to be resolved. There will be problems with communication,
appliances or people at home. Watch safety with power. There
may be testing talk over money or confusion about who was
supposed to pay for what. Take a review of domestic matters,
both personal and practical. Cooperation is the best solution.

on Nov 1st.
Your Full Moon comes on Feb 2nd. Expansion, investment,
romance and plain luck are favoured by the influences here.

social activities or even something to celebrate. Relationships
are favoured. Enjoy time with someone special. If you're
single, take a risk with someone new. Enjoy favourite activities
and tasty foods with people you love.
Your New Moon comes Aug 12th. There may be something to
negotiate with someone close. You may have much to talk
about with a partner or close associate. You may need to
go over old ground or deal with a past situation. Someone
older or in authority may be involved. Verbal communication
is important and you'll need to set a clarifying pattern
that will create a new dynamic or perspective for an old
situation or a persistent problem. You may have to make
a new start in an old position.
Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the
end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction
or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which
the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work,
direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses
of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions
as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect

changed. You may not be able to go ahead with a purchase
