Leo 2013 Horoscope
Astrological Predictions for the Leo Zodiac Sign 2013
Sorry to say it, but 2013 will not be very exciting for Leo, at least not in a significant way. Nor were the previous two years. The big fun for Leo doesn't start until late 2014.
That's because Leo is void of planets in the New Year horoscope of 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. Not only that, but major planets are far away from the Leo sign all through those years (except for 2014, when Jupiter enters Leo in the summer). Astrologically, that's quite exceptional.
Of course, things still happen to Leo in that period of several years. But most things will not be that significant in Leo's life, at least not compared to what people of some other signs go through. To Leo, it seems that most events have other main characters, and Leo is only affected sort of indirectly. No Leo is pleased with that.
Each Leo is driven by personal delight, by taking pride in oneself and letting others see it. So, Leo is no patient spectator of the adventures of others. Leo wants it to be about Leo.
Sorry, but that will not take place until late 2014.
The Moon in LeoStill, there is some consolation in 2013. In the New Year horoscope, the moon is in the middle of the Leo sign. That's a quickly moving celestial body, spending no more than about two days in each sign, spinning around the whole Zodiac in a month.
Therefore, the moon's effect is not lasting. But it will give Leo strong feelings of satisfaction and personal pride. Because this marks the start of 2013, these sweet feelings will remain to some extent all through 2013, in spite of the lack of events to support them.
Although the world seems to be about others than you, this year too, you are confident that the spotlights will turn in your direction, eventually.
The moon has two aspects in the 2013 New Year horoscope. One is a square to the Moon Node in Scorpio. This implies that the general direction of events in the world seem to head towards increased disorder and uncertainty. That's cause for concern, and Leo feels it. Not that something devastating happens, but there are many things to worry about. Such are the times, and Leo is not immune to it.
In 2013 there's also a trine to Venus in Sagittarius, and that's a good thing. There are swift and pleasant changes taking place in the world around Leo, on which Leo also profits, although not having so much to do with them. They involve what can be called a change of scenery. Things will not look exactly the same afterwards. Leo looks forward to it and welcomes it.
Mars, a planet with particular relevance to Leo (it's said to exalt in Leo), is at an opposition aspect to Leo in the 2013 New Year horoscope. It's in Aquarius, causing radical new thinking and new ideas about old stuff. The world is getting accustomed to new perspectives, but Leo is reluctant, getting a sense that time might somehow be moving away from what are the Leo essentials.
Leo is forced to look at things from the social and global perspectives, instead of the individual angle, and that's uncomfortable. But it's necessary to see the whole picture in order to understand what's going on. Don't worry - what benefits the world as a whole will also benefit you, even if it doesn't look like that to begin with.
Aspects to LeoIn the 2013 New Year horoscope, Uranus in Aries has a trine aspect to Leo. This says something similar to what Mars expresses in Aquarius - a renewal of thoughts and perspectives - but from this angle it works out fine for Leo. Although you're not happy about how global perspectives change, you find that you learn a lot from the new ideas emerging. You get wiser by observing the process and contemplating what is actually going on.
Something happens, revelations are reached. You haven't started it, you're not even in the lead of the process, but you see it and you learn from it. And it saves you from boredom.
Jupiter, the planet that will finally create some significant action in your life in 2014, is in a sextile aspect to Leo in the 2013 New Year horoscope. It's in Gemini, increasing communication just about everywhere and in every way. You kind of enjoy the noise, although you're not making most of it. And you sense that some day not so far away, you will have a say in it. It's as if the world is waiting for your monologue, without knowing it.
So, although 2013 is much about waiting hopefully, Leo still stays optimistic, with a strong sense of getting to shine in the future.
