Celestial Gossip - Leo 2009 Astrology Forecast

By Linda Merlino

Leo is a show off. Observe how Leo shines in candlelight, in the sun, under the stars, or on stage. Nature has given Leo an inner glow, which he or she proudly displays. Leo has a zest for life and for play. His or her energy can be contagious which sprinkles the atmosphere with optimism and good humor. No sign of the Zodiac is more regal or generous than Leo. The Lion has great pride and dignity. Leo is the King (or Queen) and is well suited to wear a crown.

Leo folk love children and make excellent moms and dads. Parenting comes easily, along with the art of having fun. Leo stays healthy through self expression, any activity that allows Leo to perform is the best medicine. Party planners at heart, Leo can whip up a great guest list, decorate, get the finest food and be attired to the nines before anyone arrives.

If you love a Leo let him or her have center stage. You can be the wind beneath his or her wings. Leo is loyal to mate and family. If its romance you crave remember to keep your partner warm. He or she is a sun baby. A bathing suit under their regal robes will do just fine on a hot day. Remember to say thanks to your Leo lover, he or she needs only your appreciation.

Cosmic Advice: For added interest try costumes, Leo is the actor and loves to perform, so pretend you are Romeo and Juliet or Lucy and Desi, whomever you choose just be prepared for a hot finale. Leo can be very passionate. With any luck, your costumes will be on the floor before the night is over.

Sky Watch: Saturn is still crunching his way through the sign of Virgo. Those most affected know that he gives and takes from us: for example...Would you like this or that? However, if you want that...oh, cannot have this...ugh, such lessons. This month Saturn pairs with the planet Mercury, which is all about communication. Given the limitations, rules, rights and rituals of Saturn perhaps what we have to say or speak, will be succinct, or more rigid.

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Aries finds the alignment of Saturn and Mercury a responsibility he or she can live without. Relationships are all about work; at best, this could refer to a relationship with a co-worker. Going to work or business puts you in the company of this person on a daily basis. Try not to feel obligated. Lighten up the atmosphere. Maybe someone is giving you the silent treatment on the job. Cosmic Advice: No worries this duo will be brief...sit tight for a few weeks.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Taurus is not saying what he or she wants to say. There are restrictions on how much fun you can have this month. Bursting out into song would not be appropriate. A relationship may have taken a serious turn or you may be feeling bored and in a rut. Keep in mind this is all very brief and it would be best to speak as little as possible. Cosmic Advice: Children may also be an issue. There is something denied with regard to young people, something keeping Taurus from fulfillment.

GEMINI (May 20-June 21) Gemini feels the need to unclutter his or her surroundings. Less is better. If you rent a dumpster, you can do a thorough job of cleaning out. Your space is sacred, but could use a cleansing. Get some sage, and start at one end and work your way to the other. Cosmic Advice: Concentrate on repairs and keeping costs down. Home is your castle, so drain the moat and dust the chandeliers.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Cancer is a creature of habit. Habits are comfortable. All this is fine and good, but when you are rigid in your environment there can be clashes with others. Perhaps a neighbor speaks another language and you need to tell him to stop parking in your space. Find someone to translate; this applies in general. You may need a translator for the next few weeks. Communication has hit a wall. Cosmic Advice: Patience will work well as this is a brief period.

LEO (July 23-August 22) Leo feels the money pinch. Finances are a source of concern. Save-save-save. This is not a bad attitude. Fear of material loss can be a source of a few problems. Caution is good and patience as this is a brief period. Cosmic Advice: Feeling insecure can be physical and mental. Take the time to sit down and take stock of what you value.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) Virgo cannot project a good persona during this partnership of Mercury and Saturn. There is no room to express his or her self. Bound by limitations, Virgo feels fenced in. The best and most reasonable approach is to stay quiet, keep up your reserve; this will be a brief period. Cosmic Advice: Take care of your self. Get your teeth checked and drink lots of milk.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Libra feels there is much going on behind the scenes. He or she cannot express what they might know. Communication is difficult; this is a time for mental work. Cosmic Advice: Tolerance is a word that requires thought. You will be asked to be tolerant. Also, do not take the blame for something that occurred without your knowledge. If you feel guilty, that is your problem but not reality.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Scorpio may spend time with an older, wiser friend. Someone you have known for many years may come into your life again. You prefer to keep few friends but the ones you have are enduring. A review of your hopes and dreams may require some trimming. Cosmic Advice: Perhaps you set unattainable goals and need to go back and revise.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Sagittarius will find with the pairing of Mercury and Saturn that he or she can see the very real possibility of achievement. Business and life objectives appear to be within reach. You may hold off with announcements until next month but remain confident while waiting. Cosmic Advice: Laying a strong foundation for the future during this brief period will reap rewards later.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capricorn may hold a narrow view of a popular subject. Dealing with other people's point of view can be a difficult task during this brief period. There can be misunderstandings and breaks in communication, do not be impatient. Cosmic Advice: This feeling is only for a few weeks, keep busy in other ways. Take a short course in language or write some short stories.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Aquarius may have difficulty dealing with the resources of others. Maybe you are not being paid; a check is not in the mail. Promises to pay are broken. Do not attempt to borrow over the next few weeks. This period is brief, wait until next month. Cosmic Advice: This could all be someone else's problem and you were caught up in the nonsense.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Pisces feels tied down. In one-on-one relationships, Pisces feels limitations. Pisces likes to flow and there is no space and too many limitations. Truth is your compass is off. Seek balance and the flow will return. Cosmic Advice: Of course, you must wait a few weeks to get your groove back. Be patient. Find a beach and listen to the waves.
