Leo Horoscope 2019 (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Welcome to your 2019 horoscope Lovely Leo! You are a Leo if you were born July 23 to August 22. Your symbol is the lion and yours is a fixed fire sign ruled by the Sun. As a Leo, the world is your oyster and you need a stage to showcase your immense talent. Creative Lions like to be the Kings and Queens of the Jungle which is fine, provided they don’t overstep the mark. Remember, the jungle of life is a powerful ecosystem that works best when there are opportunities and solutions for all. A lion helps keep the jungle ecosystem balanced.

Changes in Many Areas of your Life, Mostly Good ?
Lovely Leo you have a very busy year this year. You will be focused on your health, relationships and work. There are changes all around you and it’s up to you to choose how you want those changes to pan out. You’ve had a difficult couple of years lately but 2019 promises to improve your life.
Starting the year, wonderful planet of abundance mother Jupiter is in Scorpio with Mars in the 5th house of pleasure, love and entertainment for you lovely Leos! You’ll be enjoying yourself and your creativity will be coming to the fore. This influence will last up to December 3, 2019.
You have both Pluto and Saturn hitting your 6th house of routine work, your daily habits and your health. This year will necessitate much fine tuning to your life in these areas as there will be obstacles and delays to some of your goals. Some things you will need to leave behind, and others need tweaking. You will need to decide what is most important and dispense with anything that is superfluous or unnecessary into 2020.
Saturn can affect our bodies in various ways including skin problems, joints, arthritis, lower back and knees. During this 6th house transit you should take it easy and not push your physical limits too hard. You may find a lack of flexibility only exacerbates relationship issues and any physical weakness in your body. Do some gentle stretching and take magnesium for your muscles and fish oil for your joints.
Avoid Taking Criticism to Heart
Serious Saturn is a hard taskmaster and can sometimes play the authoritarian parent, so you may find yourself feeling unfairly criticised at times especially in your personal life at home. Please dear Leo, try not to take this to heart. Remain patient and tolerant and you will get through this difficult time. Saturn only comes around in this way every 29.5 years so think back to around 1988 – 1990 and this will give a clue as to how you might be affected in the Saturnian karmic cycle this time.
Pluto is one of the outer transpersonal planets, representing spiritual energy beyond this physical plane. You may find very deep and intense energy rising up out of your subconscious as you deal with karmic or ancestral patterns that have plagued your family or your own Soul, for centuries. This is not easy, but it is ultimately healing and rewarding! Let go of what you no longer need and turn your eyes to the future which will be easier and lighter for you.
You’ll Feel More Creative and Inspired in 2019
You have mega planet of abundance Jupiter in your 5th house up to December 3 which bodes well for fun, creativity and love generally. You will want to do things you love with people you love. Your creativity is likely to be heightened, however you do need to consider all factors and not impulsively race ahead with risky projects that have little chance of success. There are some challenges that could arise in your 11th house of friends, groups and organisations which is opposite to your 5th. New business ideas, projects and gambling need to be carefully considered especially as there are also challenges relating to your 2nd house of finances and value systems. Going all out there on a hunch may not necessarily pay off, so please don’t throw any babies out with the bathwater when you’re considering new ideas of a romantic or career nature. Mistakes here will cost you dearly. Having said that, you will have inspiration to try something new regarding your career. Be discerning about opportunities and you’ll be fine.
After December 3 Jupiter will move to your 6th house and your health and daily routine are likely to improve and become larger in some respects as you broaden your horizons. You’ll be looking at improving your wellbeing through diet, movement and getting out more into nature. Being around animals would also help your wellbeing and vitality and especially with cats as you are after all, Leo the Lion! Your overall health is likely to improve but do be careful you don’t put on weight if this is an issue for you, everything about Jupiter is BIG! It would be preferable if you eat better but not more under this influence.
During this time, your everyday routine could get a much-needed boost of energy along with routine work and projects that don’t require huge out of the ordinary activity. Your everyday life is going relatively well, and you might even revamp your fitness routine and dust off those old joggers.
Up until March 6 you have Uranus in your 9th house of philosophy, higher education, foreigners and mind. Basically, you will feel inspired around these higher topics including spirituality and you could consider travel or obtain international connections. This is also a great time for study or retraining in your profession.
Uranus Planetary Influence is Positive for you Leo!
March 7 sees revolutionary Uranus hitting your 10th house of profession and reputation in Taurus. Changes are going to get physical and real in your career. Uranus will be shaking things up here until April 2026. As Uranus rules the internet and technology, consequently you could become more interested in social media or something concerning the internet. You will have brilliant realisations about how you can improve your work, what you need to drop and what you need to pick up. You will outsource some jobs whilst taking on more meaningful tasks. You will become more known for doing a great job and your good reputation will increase.
You might consider a new job or business, but here again there are challenges this time in the opposite house to the 10th that is the 4th house of home and family. Any new job or business will have real physical effects on your family and those around your home life.
With this Uranian influence you might also mentor or coach someone involved in your career as a way of passing on your knowledge and wisdom for the greater good.
Caution is Needed Around Finances
Lovely Leo you also have Neptune in your 8th house of sex and other people’s money all year. Caution is needed around finances especially when Neptune is involved as delusions can reign supreme. Stay grounded and logical. ‘Other people’s money’ could be loans, inheritances, mortgages or taxes. Best to investigate every possibility and some people might be in your milieu with ulterior motives. When Neptune is around, spirituality becomes more important but confusion is also possible and in some cases, others may be deceptive. Neptune causes one to dive deep down into the subconscious looking for hidden treasure. Take a deep breath lovely Leo because it’s a long time between breaths under the Neptunian influence.
Deception around sex is also possible or you may also find you’re just not interested in sex at the moment, and that’s fine too. Get your personalised astrology report here to find out more.
Just be aware that the Moon’s South Node in earthy Capricorn might somewhat test you by bringing past patterns back. It’s like Spirit is saying “are you sure you really want to change?” Stick to your guns and forge forward into your new life.
The Moon’s North Node is in Leo. Flowing emotions will benefit you as you connect with the real inner you. You will be expressive and enjoy helping other people this year.
During 2019 Mercury Goes Retrograde 3 times
Your ruler is the Sun lovely Leo and as such you won’t be bothered too much by Mercury’s retrogrades at the start and end of the year. The July retrograde is a different matter however, as it is bang in your sign Leo and you might really let fly with a meltdown or two during this time. This is a powerful time for your dear Leo! You might also be tweaking your work, how you can get a better work/life balance or your financials. M/s Mercury turns retrograde March 6-29, July 8-August 1 and November 1-21.
Miscommunications and confusion are quite likely during Mercury Retrograde along with faulty electrical equipment, so please don’t plan to do anything major during this period or 5 days either side of these dates which is also known as the ‘shadow period’.
Mercury retrograde causes issues for all astrological signs and sometimes in a major way, playing havoc with relationships, business, legal issues and career. Be careful starting projects when Mercury is retrograde as things can get easily muddled up and you might have to go back again and redo things you thought had already been done. Remember, if in doubt – don’t! Misunderstandings and presentations go skew-iff along with your credibility if you’re not careful during Mercury Retrograde. Go here for Mercury Retrograde dates in 2019.
Eclipses are one way the Universe highlights and amplifies your current situation. It’s a time of transformation… something passes and something begins. The effects of eclipses may not be necessarily felt at the time, they may manifest over the following months so quite often they are difficult to tie back to a particular eclipse. Dear Leo, try to stay calm and grounded, don’t allow your emotions to get too carried away. Read more about Solar and Lunar Eclipses in 2019!
3 Solar & 2 Lunar Eclipses
- January 6 Solar Eclipse in Capricorn – a cardinal Earth sign which will hit your work zone, Uranus in your 6th house of routine work and health. You will be looking at new ways of doing routine work. Some of you will be looking for a new job thanks to this and the July eclipses. This first eclipse will see some of you being successful, although the work seems to be more like a short-term project rather than a keeper. You will gain new awareness around work, health and daily habits, making tweaks and changes in order to get in tune with your body’s natural rhythm.
- The 20/21 January total Lunar Eclipse is in Leo – a fixed fire sign, your sign! This eclipse is likely to powerfully affect you Dear Leo.

Your relationships might be the brunt of this explosive energy, but perhaps these things need to be said?
- July 2 partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer – a cardinal water sign in your 12th house of the subconscious at a Soul level. This eclipse is not likely to overly affect Leos who are fixed fire signs. You are likely to be letting go of the past and releasing emotion to boot. Be sensitive with both yourself and others in communications. Notice communication nuances.
- July 16 total Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn – a cardinal Earth sign hits your 6th house of every day habits and routine work. Some Leos will leave their current work as a result of this eclipse.

- December 26 partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn – a cardinal Earth sign. Congratulations, see how far you’ve come this year lovely Leo… you’ve let go of a ton of old stuff!
