YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE
Leos aren’t big on conflict. One wouldn’t know that because of the way you puff up your chest and roar like a lion when challenged; however, if the other side is committed to escalating tensions, then you’ll look for a way to appease them. But not on March 9th. This is when Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus. Mars in your opposite sign brings the fight to you no matter where you are, leaving you with no choice but to engage in it. It took a while, but it looks like you’ll finally be making the stand that you should have made all along.
The forecast is dreary as the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn form a triple conjunction in Pisces on February 28th. There’s nothing subtle about triple conjunctions; they’re all bold caps with exclamation points, and this one will hit you in a vulnerable spot regarding an emotional or financial cost. There are times when we get dealt one bad card after the next, and this is one of them. Thankfully it’s always darkest before the sextile as you’ll see on March 1st when a shift in planetary energies brings a break in the cloud cover. This puts you in touch with people who can help you out.
It’s tempting to shortchange someone who treated you poorly and doesn’t deserve to be repaid. They didn’t keep their word, so why should you? Unfortunately, the only person you’d be cheating is yourself. It’s unfair being the injured party who has to recompense the person who wronged you, but do it. You don’t want to be around this toxic energy any longer than you have to be. It’s like wanting to retaliate against a driver who rides your tail or runs a red light. This person is an accident waiting to happen, and the sooner you’re as far away from them as possible, the better.
Praise goes to everyone but you when the Sun is opposite you in the sky. It’s hard not to take it personally, but you shouldn’t because it’s as inevitable and unsentimental as the changing of a season. It’s not your time, and it won’t be until Spring. What to do until then? Be the first to congratulate others on their triumphs. It may feel strained at first, but once you get into the spirit of things, your natural camaraderie will shine through. It’s important to remember that the more you’re there for others now, the more they’ll be there for you when it’s your turn.
An unexpected development could prove unsettling on February 8th, but you need to continue with the changes you’ve already set in motion. If anything, this justifies why you’re doing what you’re doing. Sun/Uranus squares are famous for upsetting the apple cart and since Uranus entered your solar midheaven in 2008, it’s been upsetting plans on a semi-annual basis. But instead of intimidating you, it’s emboldened you because you’ve come to realize that the only person you can rely on is you. Taking back the reins not only puts you in charge of your life, it ensures you’ll be a better driver than others have been.
The Mars/Uranus trine on January 29th shows you’re in demand. Not only are you racing to keep up with orders and requests, but it also looks like you’re taking in quite a haul. But this planetary energy can also run away with you if you aren’t careful, so don’t overpromise. If that means you have to schedule people further out than they want or even say “no,” then do it. The Stars show there are more customers and gigs on the way. Indeed, this uptick in business may be here to stay for a few months, so the sooner you learn to manage it, the better.
You’ll be taken aback on January 25th when a usually agreeable person decides not to do what you say or worse – talks back. Your first response may be to put them in their place, but take a moment to think about what’s going down. Accusations of being bossy are nothing new for Leos, but this change is deeper than that. Maybe this person has grown more confident or really does disagree with your approach. People questioning your authority won’t be easy, but it’s something you’ll need to get used to with Pluto in Aquarius. This could lead to better working relationships or more creative collaborations.
The days leading up to the Sun/Pluto conjunction on January 20th at the last degree of Capricorn are bound to be fraught with tension. Just remember that everything that needed to be said or done has been said and done already. You need to stay focused on what you want to walk away with. Admittedly it’s a bit like playing chicken, but in this case, you’ve come too far to be the first one to blink. Stand firm, and you’ll see the other side relent. Yes, there are bound to be repercussions from this face-off, but like with any Sun/Pluto conjunction, it was inevitable.
There’s a difference between pushing and asserting. Pushing is more confrontational while asserting yourself simply means stepping up to the plate. This may take some people by surprise when you decide to do just that on January 9th, but once you do, nobody will challenge it. Why? Because of a robust trine between the Sun in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. Earth sign energy is more low-key about getting its way than fire sign energy because it never overreaches. The fact that an opportunity has your name on it or that you’re well-suited for the job on offer means everyone will accept it as yours.
Be forewarned that your most challenging times will be January 20th thru mid-February and then again in December when Mars turns retrograde in Leo. Now most people would choose to go into hiding if they heard this, but not you. You were born under the zodiac sign of the lion – the king of the beasts and famous for living out in the open. This speaks to your confidence and courage. Admittedly adversity isn’t fun, but adversity also introduces you to strengths you never knew you had so that by year’s end you’ll feel a lot more accomplished than you did at the beginning of 2024.

YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE
Brought to you by Jamie Magee
Leo, 2024 is brimming with opportunities to amplify your natural vitality and charisma. Both private and public sides of your life will be invited to change. How you engage this change will frame your experience. No matter how challenging or beneficial the situation may be, make it a point to stay open-minded and curious.
Top Themes for the Year:
• Nurturing & Refining relationships and alliances.
• Deepening wisdom through learning & exploring.
• Your career or public reputation (your purpose).
One of the biggest undertones of the year kicks off on January 20th as Pluto moves back into your relationship house of Aquarius. The more you engage the subtle hints from the universe, the easier and more productive your Pluto lessons will be. Pluto is asking for deep introspection and possible restructuring of how you relate, commit, and forge bonds with others.
Communication in general, is spotlighted in 2024 by the Libra eclipses in March & October (in your 3rd house). How you communicate and with whom, along with your daily flow, will be up for review. The change you seek with this energy is for all sides to feel in harmony with their path. Some things may be ready to end, so others have room to grow. The Aries eclipse (9th house) on April 8th will invite you to explore outside your comfort zone. The more open you are to new insights and explorations, the more you will benefit from this energy.
Another notable focus area in 2024 is your financial and deep intimate connections. This is where Mars & Saturn will meet on April 10th. Themes of shared resources, mutual investments, and emotional depths may rise, prompting you to navigate these topics assertively and cautiously. There will also be a Pisces eclipse in this same area in September. Endings and beginnings may unfold at once. Remember that their purpose is to help you build your legacy.
A highlight of the year and a possible massive launching point comes when Jupiter & Uranus meet in your 10th house on April 20th and Venus & Jupiter on May 23rd – both energies present opportunities for expansion, unexpected advancements, and perhaps a delightful sprinkle of fortune in your professional life.
On May 25th, Jupiter moves into Gemini for the first time in 12 years. You’ll have a wide-reaching opportunity to expand on your dream, build allies, healthy partnerships, and a new daily rhythm. Remember that Jupiter expands what you focus on—looking ahead and not back is your key to success.
As you can see, Leo, your 2024 horoscope invites both growth and change. Trust your natural leadership, warm heart, and unwavering courage to guide your path.
