By nature, lions are communal creatures, and for the past year, the stars have stoked your pair-bonding instincts, Leo. Partnerships are and will continue to be a huge theme of 2022—but luckily, you’ll also enjoy a side of freedom and exploration as your attention also turns to soul-satisfying personal growth. Which of your own unique dreams do you want to manifest in the wider world, share globally and maybe even turn into a business? The dynamic-duo trend started in December 2020 when, both lucky Jupiter and structured Saturn entered Aquarius, your committed relationship sector, and united in their Great Conjunction (or what your local newspaper called the “Christmas star”). As they did an on-and-off paso doble through 2021, we were blessed with Bennifer 2.0, the Leo-Leo poster couple that made us all believe in fairy-tale love after a grim COVID dry spell.
Right before NYE, Jupiter moves on to Pisces and your eighth house of intimacy and investments, where it will hang out until May 10, 2022, then make one last circuit from October 28 to December 20, 2022. During both windows, you could feel a bit more private—while also enjoying a windfall of wealth and/or an erotic reawakening. But before you get too attached, know that freedom will be your greatest aphrodisiac, from May 10 until October 28, as abundant Jupiter visits fellow fire-sign Aries. During this mid-year cycle you’ll be focused on education, entrepreneurship, and travel opportunities. Meantime, your career path continues taking many plot twists, a trend that will continue until 2026, but could reach peak levels as Uranus and the North Node weave through Taurus and your professional sector in 2022 and 2023. Much as you love to plan, Leo, your best bet is to co-pilot this adventure with the universe now.
