That's part of their drama, as they push and pull us in totally divergent directions. Since February , the Leo and Aquarius series has intensified the dynamic division between the privileged elite Leo and the everyday people Aquarius. Leo rules the monarchy, world leaders, luxury and performing arts.
Aquarius governs activism, social media, collective uprisings and humanitarian efforts. We've seen the best and worst of both since February Oligarchs, plutocrats and military dictators Leo conspired with Internet trolls and social media bots Aquarius to influence elections. Simultaneously, an uprising of the masses Aquarius emboldened new political leaders to emerge and become the celebrities of Leo —including lioness Meghan Markle whose marriage to Prince Harry was a political statement unto itself. Politically motivated art and theater had a boon; SNL tracked world events with satiric precision throughout this eclipse series.

On a global level the January 21, eclipse could herald a grand finale to some of the scandalous scenarios that have occupied headlines for the past two years. Will we finally get privy to more findings of the Muller probe? Learn the real deal on Russia? Or could it bring a crazy curveball that emboldens world leaders to make more permanent power grabs? While we're hoping the latter is not the case, there is guaranteed to be some element of surprise involved with whatever is revealed this January 20th and 21st. On a personal level, this full wolf moon could send up a lupine howl, calling forth the leaders in us all.
Where could we step up in our lives a and take on greater responsibility for the good of all? How can we use our style, charisma and influence to create a deeper sense of connection and social justice in our communities? In some cases, it might be as easy as hitting record on our mobile phones—to preach a message or to livestream a BBQ Becky's offenses.
On a much sweeter level, this Leo lunar eclipse could usher in some early Valentine's Day vibes. If an attraction has been aging like a fine wine over the past couple years, it's officially time for an "uncorking. Couples could tap into long-buried desire—even after having a good-old-fashioned "keep it real" argument that's been brewing for a longggg time. But hey!

If you've already had your fifteen minutes, this eclipse offers a prime opportunity to signal-boost an up-and-comer. What goes around comes around!

Your working life appears quite stable in , with few major astrological indicators of change.

Early in March, Venus shifts into your career zone, so you may want to make your working conditions more comfortable. At the end of March, ambitious Mars enters your money zone, so we can expect to see you hustling hard this northern spring, seeking a better salary or ways to otherwise expand your income.

Be very careful with social media at these times, as what you say can easily be twisted against you. Loving Venus arrives in your romance zone in early January, so gets off to a positive start for an established relationship. The first quarter of the year is the best time for a wedding or an engagement. Mars arrives in Gemini at the end of March. Venus shifts into your sign in June, softening your image once more and enabling you to show off the very best of your lively, funny, sociable self.
Relationships will pick up pace and fabulous memories can be made. As the end of the year approaches, Venus eventually makes her way back into your romance zone, so any relationship which starts with a bang in the previous months may well settle down to something more sustainable then. Fortunately, the planets line up to assist you with this.
Late January, June and November are periods when your inner strength and determination drives you forwards, regardless of circumstances.

However, a Lunar Eclipse in your money zone in late January suggests that your income may take a hit. A series of difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune, in January, June and September highlight disillusionment at work and an emotional over-reaction to events in your career.
