When talkative Mercury conjoins unrestrained Jupiter on January 2, the possibilities are endless. You can’t help but feel optimistic when you think about all the potential new connections you’ll be able to make. If you’re like most Leos, you already have an outgoing personality, and this transit only increases your willingness to be social.

The emotional moon moves into your demonstrative sign on the eleventh, creating drama and intrigue. You love being the center of attention, and during this transit you might overreact or exaggerate to get more of it. People are drawn to your magnetic personality and fascinated by your talents now, and you welcome the applause!

A powerful sun-Pluto conjunction in ambitious Capricorn on January 13 highlights the many outstanding things on your to-do list and reminds you that you have plenty of responsibilities to take care of before you have fun. Good thing you have the motivated Goat’s energy to help you push through.

A new moon in quirky Aquarius helps put some fun back in your life on the twenty-fourth, and the more open-minded you are the better. You have a lot of great ideas, so try to find someone who can help you turn them into reality. You’re much better in a leadership or supervisory role than a hands-on one right now.
