Leo Forecast for 2019: Love & Romance
For good or bad, there was a lot of focus on your relationships last year, with Mars dominating things. Normally spending six weeks in your relationship sector every other year, Mars spent nearly six months here in 2018 and only left in November. With the North Node in Leo for all but the last nine days, this forced you to confront any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs. Whatever challenges or opportunities this created, this year you will get to enjoy the benefits. While there is not a lot of focus on your relationships this year, with the main focus on matters of the heart and all things romantic, what there is should be special. It begins with the Sun's return to your relationship sector on 20th January, throwing the solar spotlight on your relationships.
What follows will be a short period of activity that will be perfect for relationship building, taking everything Mars has exposed last year and reaping the benefits. Mercury's return to your relationship sector from 24th January to 11th February will be a chance to ensure the communication lines are open, while Venus' return from 2nd March to 27th March will create some of the best relationship weeks of the year. Venus is the only planet that will return again before the year is out, with a double dip visit from 20th December 2019 to 14th January 2020. This makes the early months and final days of 2019 the best for relationship matters. On the romantic front, however, it is a very different story.
You begin the year with lucky Jupiter already in your romantic sector and not leaving until 3rd December, 2019 is officially your luckiest year for love and matters of the heart in over a decade. Yet while Jupiter has already been here for seven weeks before you move into the New Year, the most romantically charged weeks of his time here are still to come. That happens when Venus returns from 8th January to 4th February, bringing the planets of love and luck together to create some of the most romantically charged weeks in over a decade. I would say that there are the most romantically charged weeks of 2019, except Venus will return for a second visit from 2nd November to 26th November. In a year when you have luck and the love gods on your side from the get go, it is during Venus' two visits that you will experience the full force of this. While Jupiter will leave on 3rd December, the love gods will continue to keep the romantic flame burning into the early weeks of 2020.
