Leo

Awareness is key this month, Leo. The sun-Neptune retrograde trine on November 6 makes you very alert to what’s going on around you (you’re especially sensitive to major current events), and you might feel like changing the world. Take baby steps.

Lucky Jupiter enters fiery Sagittarius on the eighth, giving you the chance to increase your social and cultural awareness. High on your priority list is learning about people and things that are very different than you, and the more eye-opening experiences you have, the more chances you have to grow. Expanding your world is always a good thing!

Mercury retrograde kicks off in Sagittarius on November 16, making it virtually impossible for you to stay quiet about certain things. Unfortunately, the more you try to make your point, the more confusing things become, which can be extremely frustrating both for you and for the people you’re interacting with. With so much emphasis on the breakdown in communication, maybe it would be better to try to prove your point another time.

A Mars-Saturn sextile on the twenty-seventh shows you what’s possible and gives you lots of energy to get the job done. Isn’t it nice to be working toward success instead of running away from failure?
