Questions and Answers – Leo Weather

Kay Tina Cook: Anything on the COVID situation in the UK? Are astrological features likely to encourage growth or retraction?

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has several astrological charts, Katy Tina, but they all show the same thing. In order to contain and control COVID-19, the four nations will have to separate, temporarily (although perhaps permanently in the case of Scotland) to close borders and run their own pandemic strategy and local economy, within. The end of the National Health Service in 2022 and its replacement will add to the urgency of that strategy.  The Gemini-Sagittarius Node cycles which are behind the pandemic (Sagittarius rules foreigners and foreign countries, travel, immigration, export, import, tourism) end in January 2022. This does not mean the pandemic ends in 2022, but it does mean that the United Kingdom will finally move towards ending its major problem – its local/global split.

Cecelia d’Arc: I was born on 2nd May 1959 and have Vesta in Leo and the IC at 29 Leo.

Vesta in Leo is an indicator of ‘one male, several females’ in connection with pregnancy, babies, children, teenagers, young adults. The IC there (if your birth time is accurate) suggests an ancestor had the same pattern, or a close relative. For example, one baby boy in a single-parent family with a mother, aunt, grandmother. However, Vesta can also show up as a man who gets a woman pregnant, while still involved with his girlfriend. Whatever the story is in your life it will be prominent in August 2021 and you will find a solution. Not a perfect solution, but a solution.

Martie Hoover: I’m curious how my music career will go in the next little while. A late relaunch.

If the music is aimed at people in their teens and twenties, then you are relaunching at the right time, Martie, as Leo weather is about a younger audience. If you think about Madonna (Leo) who is virtually Grandmadonna to people in their twenties now, or J.K. Rowling, who is a literary godmother figure to schoolchildren, you get the idea (she is another Leo).

Shyama Friedenson: Does astrology indicate that we WILL be able to solve the environmental issue?

Yes. Uranus (the revolution) in Taurus (the world economy) suggests that everything we knew about the planet’s finances and resources before 2018 is now reversed. That means an end to fossil fuels, like coal. It means an end to mass consumption and mass disposable product manufacturing (Made in China). It means an end to globalisation, most of all, as Sagittarius rules globalisation and that sign in particular is obstructed and sometimes defeated, from 2021 onwards. We have cycles in Pisces and Gemini, ongoing, which will block and stop the constant movement of people and goods around the planet. So it’s really two cycles. The Uranus in Taurus cycle until 2026, which began in 2018 – and the never-ending mutable sign cycles which end globalisation (Pisces and Gemini weather, ending Sagittarius-styled aims).

Brenda Roberts: Is there a way of knowing if the karmic loop of the North Node in Leo and South Node in Aquarius is credit or debit?

You will know for yourself, Brenda. If someone treated you unfairly then he or she will apologise or make good, perhaps for another issue entirely, but you will feel as if you have won a victory. If you are owed by an organisation or entity, that may also come good for you – amends will be made in some way. If, however, you are guilty of short-changing other people in the past, it may well be you who is put in a position where you must say sorry, back down, or perhaps throw a really large favour!

Gabbie Mganga: I am Capricorn. You mentioned a double whammy with this Leo weather, relating to the Eighth House. How do I deal with that, if I am looking for a new house?

The double whammy is really your solar chart based on your Sun Sign of Capricorn (you have transits of your Eighth House from Leo cycles) but also in your natal or birth chart, you have anything in Scorpio in the Eighth House, being aspected by transiting Uranus in Taurus (the opposition) but in 2022, a trine from Jupiter in Pisces. This applies to family, friends or anyone tied up in your house, apartment or money: they are very likely to have Scorpio factors in the Eighth House as billions were born with the slow-moving outer planets in Scorpio – like Uranus, Neptune or Pluto.

You will find that your best possible outcome with a new home is 2022, as Jupiter moves through Pisces and then Aries. In fact you should be sitting pretty with a bigger or better domestic arrangement in the second half of 2022. That does not stop you purchasing now, but if we’re talking about stunning outcomes (successful renovation of a purchase, for example) it’s definitely the second half of 2022.

Sharlene Jamieson: My daughter has eight factors in Leo. Will this season be positive or negative for her?

Your daughter will be put in touch with younger faces than her own (a younger generation) even if there has been little or no contact and there will be a chance to balance a situation. If this is impossible then there will be substitutes, as other younger faces replace those who are no longer in the picture. A new bond will be formed with them.

Bryn Littlewolf: I am wondering what will happen for me. Virgo Sun, Scorpio Rising, Scorpio Stellium, Gemini Moon.

Bryn, you will find the same pattern in your solar chart and natal chart – a focus on the Twelfth House in August. The Twelfth House rules hypnosis, meditation, counselling, self-help, dream interpretation, Tarot, mediumship and the inner world of the unseen. It rules God even if you do not believe in God. For example you may be a humanist who opposes religion and becomes involved in a political issue about, say, the church. You have Leo weather in your Twelfth House in August and in your natal chart you have Neptune transiting your Twelfth House. By September you will have crystallised who and what you believe in. It may be about psychics as well as psychology. It’s very personal.

Kay Tina Cook: I have Uranus at 8 Leo and wonder what the influence of that, might be.

Uranus in Leo in the Fifth House is the person who must sort out their relationship to the world of babies, infants, schoolchildren, teenagers and young adults on a regular basis. This can happen because of unplanned pregnancy. It can happen because of a break-up or divorce between a couple, with single parenthood. It is highly variable and very personal. Sometimes the issue is parenthood with a rebellious son or grandson, for example. Key questions are about to come to you as the Sun passes over Uranus at 8 Leo, in August and by September you’ll have answered them. It is very important to honour your own and other people’s freedom and independence if you have Uranus in Leo in the Fifth House. “Don’t fence me in” is very much the message. You may, for example, have attracted lovers in the past who did not want children. Or, key children/godchildren/nieces/nephews in the story may be fiercely independent and demand space and autonomy.

Sandi Garand: I have Minerva, the Moon, Descendant, Mercury and Apollo in Leo with lots of anxiety for the last two years.

Anxiety is actually a Virgo issue. It is very common for people with Leo factors to also have Virgo factors, the next sign along. Virgo rules the Sixth House of mind, body and spirit. They are all connected. Try the free hypnosis of Paul McKenna on YouTube. In astrology we believe that the mind (Mercury, the ruler of  Virgo) is highly influential on the body. Particularly the subconscious mind. So hypnosis can be remarkably effective. Paul McKenna is the world’s most successful hypnotist and has donated his audiobook work at no cost to us. 

Sumangala Friedenson: So much untruth about the vaccine. Now hearing untold numbers of people are dying from vaccines and also vaccines causing variants. When will this Covid virus leave us?

There is no vaccine, which I told The Daily Mail last October, 2020. The astrology was really clear. The ‘Silver Bullet’ vaccine most people fantasise about does not exist, and will never exist. 

There are injections of Pfizer and AstraZeneca, to name two, which reduce the risk of hospitalisation, but they do not prevent us from becoming infected with COVID-19, or becoming ill with it, or infecting other people. So they are not really vaccines at all, in the sense that we expect a vaccine to protect us all! Pfizer does not work against the Delta variant. AstraZeneca does not work against the Beta variant. They both come up about 6/10 and that’s not enough.

As for “untold numbers dying from vaccines” – no proof of that. 

Vaccines are better than nothing because they will stop you going to hospital. The best solution is border control + quarantine + testing + vaccination. And if something goes wrong, shut down the town – go hard and go early. (Copy New Zealand and Australia which regularly hit Zero Covid). All of this is science, plus real world evidence, plus astrology. 

Raphael Saleem: If a person with a Leo Sun sign had a Saturn Return 2017-2019 and went through an ego death and lost friends and family members, will they return with this new Leo season?

Saturn Returns can be very hard going and it takes time to recover from that transit. This Leo weather now is about a relaunch and rebirth for Leo people. They come back to us, the way we remember them from the past, but with a new spin. The phrase “Back to your old self” may be relevant for you. It is possible this may come about because of a reconnection with a relative or friend. It is just as likely because you find yourself with a new face (or two) around you. Yet, you are the person others remember. You went through a phase. That phase is over. You’re back!

Celia Fitch: I have the South Node in Leo and Pluto too. How will the Leo weather affect me?

The South Node in Leo in the Fifth House is automatically opposite the North Node in Aquarius in the Eleventh House in your chart. So your karmic inheritance is about leadership versus the group. Being the Queen of the court, but also having to deal with the court. You have done this at least once in a previous life, perhaps in the army, navy or Air Force: you may have been a unit commander but found the group very hard work. 

Pluto suggests power and control issues, so in this lifetime, particularly if pregnancy, babies, infants, schoolchildren or teenagers are involved, you find yourself stuck with challenges which involve friends and the group (say) but also your own leading role; your guidance, mentorship or authority is challenged and changed. The Leo weather will bring this to you in August and a conversation may need to take place, or a decision be made.

Yolanda Mendiveles (Chart details follow with Pisces ruling the Second House) How does Leo weather affect me?

I use the Natural House System so Pisces does not rule your Second House, it rules your Twelfth House. I need to spin your chart to predict August for you. You will be put in touch with younger people (babies through young adults, depending on your age) and it may be as simple as a new boyfriend whose teenage niece offers to baby sit for you. It can be as complex as a young adult whom you knew as a toddler, who comes back into your life. There is a chance to start again here. A new chapter in a new book in your life. You may find it is professional, too. For example, you may find yourself being asked to teach or coach Millennials.

M.A. Collins: I am a Sagittarius with no planets in Leo. How does the Leo weather affect me?

It may pass you by, actually, as the world of babies, infants, schoolchildren, teenagers or young adults does not say who you are. It does not define you. What you will find, however, is that a foreign country, or foreign people, bring a new beginning for you in August. Look up at the New Moon (a sliver of light in the sky) and you will realise the timing. 

Julianne Negri: I have the DC in Leo and South Node in Leo.

That is a past life that comes back to you through a duet or duel, perhaps several times. So, a husband or even a former husband whom you have fallen out with. The past life would have involved being a parent, more than once, and the decisions you took to pursue parenthood or reject it. 

Solveig: I am a little bit scared of 2019 repeating itself. My dad died, my boyfriend ended the relationship, my grandma died and I lost friends.

Please don’t worry. There is no direct repetition of 2019 even though the Leo Weather will bring you back to eclipses that year. The key here is your boyfriend. That relationship break-up got in the way of you becoming a parent one day. So the issue in August 2021 will be – how do you have babies, infants, schoolchildren, teenagers or young adults in your life? How do they fit into the new picture for you in August? You’ll find out very soon. It will not make up for what you lost with your boyfriend but it will go a very long way to helping you reshape your life and find a new path.

Terry Schroeder: I have the Sun and Ascendant in Leo. I’m a bit over the lockdowns. I don’t want to go out; don’t even want to meet anyone any more. Is this mood going to lift at some point?

This sounds like a Virgo problem to me. It is very likely you have factors in Virgo and the Sixth House of your chart, which rules depression and anxiety. Staying at home for extended periods deprives us all of brain happiness chemicals: endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine. We are not getting the ‘cuddle chemical’ or the ‘reward chemical’ or the ‘hard exercise chemical’ for a start.

So that’s Virgo territory. Have a look at what you have in Virgo and the Sixth House and see what it tells you. You would be amazed at how many Leo people have other planets in Virgo and nine times out of ten, the issue is the mind’s control of the body/the body’s influence on the mind. The good news is, it can be fixed. August is the perfect time to begin and September, to go to stage two. I’m sure you have already seen your doctor, who may have said much the same thing. What works, according to my readers? Wild swimming. Hypnosis. Meetups (especially the Conscious Cafe) on Zoom. Yoga. Maybe, a cat or dog friend, if you are by yourself. 

Karin Drummond: Sun Gemini, Saturn 0 Leo, Mars 13 Leo. Will I have the opportunity to travel next year?

Travel by December at the latest and do all you can, right up until Christmas. Be extremely cautious about travelling in 2022.

Elizabeth Kennelly: I have Minerva at 29 Leo. Will things get easier in my job search?

Yes, if your job involves babies, infants, schoolchildren, teenagers, or young adults. In fact, you would be in a stunning situation in the second half of 2022, having made breakthroughs in August.

Antoinette Morris: We had a big cover-up with my son’s brain injury. This all happened in 2017-2019.

I am very sorry about that tragic situation, Antoinette. The Leo eclipses hit some people so hard. This only gets better. August helps. Then in the second half of 2022 you begin to see real progress at least – real transformation.

Julianne Negri: I have five planets in Leo. I am a children’s author waiting to hear about a stalled project.

The publishing industry is stuck until January 2022 when at last the Gemini-Sagittarius deadlock lifts. (The Nodes are in both signs which rule the web and bookstores, alike). Nothing that is happening is about you. Use August to look at alternative mediums for the project (like computer gaming or radio) and also to look at your second project. Further on, you will be back on track once Jupiter changes signs in the second half of 2022.

Sumati Stewart: I have a number of Leo factors. I have two boys. What can I expect?

Some mysteries about one of the children, dating back to 2017, 2018 and/or 2019, will be partly cleared up in August. This may concern their school, other family members, siblings, or even their health. A classic example is a child needing glasses and struggling at school but nobody guessing. It’s on that level. 

Surinder Ghattoara: I had two broken marriages (date supplied). Will I find a partner. My job situation is stressful, will I get a job soon?

I am so sorry Surinder. You are a Sun Scorpio who is in line for a complete lifestyle and job change from mid-2022, although of course you can arrange work, study and unpaid work before then. What I am really talking about is a reward for patience, and the most fantastic employment situation, which also helps with your schedule, hours, relaxation, fitness (for example with a gym nearby or a subsidised health insurance scheme) appears shortly after May 2022. Your path to happiness from Christmas throughout 2022 is babies, infants, schoolchildren, teenagers or Millennials. Now, that may very well involve one of your former husbands, if you ever had children, or it may involve a new lover who has children – or nieces, nephews, godchildren – who could become a tremendous part of your world. The doors open near Boxing Day.

Joanna J: My Fifth House is packed. I heard you calling this a karmic loop. What does it all mean?

You have Uranus in Leo in the Fifth House as well as everything else. You had karma about pregnancy, babies, children, infants, teenagers or young adults in 2017, 2018, 2019 during the Leo cycles. You were owed,  or you owed – basically. A classic example might be a former boyfriend by whom you became pregnant, but it never led to commitment. Later on, you discover he has had a child but has divorced; meanwhile you are free and single, but have children come back into your life for nice reasons. Another example might be a godchild who owes you on some level (perhaps you do all the giving and she does all the taking, or his parents do) and then the hand of fate intervenes; she needs you, but you decide to help others who need it more, or deserve it more.) Leo karma from those years can be quite obvious once you flick back and remember.

Leilani Bodle: How can I best use Leo 10 degrees in 12th House?

Using the Natural House system, anything at Leo 10 is in your Fifth House, which describes your life as a godmother (say) or as the natural mentor, guide, teacher or instructor of much younger people, old enough to be your own children. It’s your pathway. Whatever got in the way of that in 2017, 2018, 2019 is over. In fact by the end of August you will once again be a leading light to much younger people, for whatever reason.

Kimberley Dingsdale: With Leo in the Second House, how will this help me?

I presume you are a Sun Cancer person and talking about Leo transits in your solar chart? In your Second House of money? Basically you were given a tremendous solution; a real blessing, to help you deal with all the issues of 2020-2021 – as July ended. It is far from perfect but if you do the work, you’ll get so much from this. You may have to look at the labels you put on it so differently.

Sue Busbridge: My daughter was born on the eclipse, what does that mean?

Something or someone was hidden in plain sight but never seen. Her life path will involve not seeing (or not knowing) something about herself for some time. It’s not necessarily negative. It can be as basic as not realising she is colour blind; or not realising she is musically gifted.

Shirls: I have trouble conceiving with failed IVF (details supplied). We live in different countries. Will the marriage get better or should I free myself?

You have Saturn in Leo in the Fifth House which is notoriously difficult where parenthood is concerned.  Given the rest of your chart, I actually think your future is friendship and group involvement, not marriage and children. But the choice is yours.

Raphel Salem: Leo Sun (details supplied). Is this a time to lay low or start emerging again?

Reinvent, relaunch, sort out your appearance (face/head and wardrobe/style), rebrand, rename, rethink how you present. It will not be 100% perfect but that Leo New Moon in August is potent.

Mimi: I have a Cancer stellium (details supplied). Thinking about retiring. Good time?

Perfect time, as you go into Virgo Weather in the second half of August and September. Virgo rules lifestyle. There will be three crossroads to get to what you want with then-new retired life, but your chart is beautifully angled. 

Fiona Lee Saunders: I have eczema (Virgo Sun). Why do I have this? I have seven planets in Leo.

Great question. What or whom do you not want to face? What or whom triggers issues about saving face for you? Who or what is skin deep for you? Start there. Your dreams will have an answer.  Have a look at my friend Jane Teresa Anderson’s dreams website. Your subconscious mind can tell you, if you program yourself before you sleep, to answer your own questions. I am sorry you feel self-conscious about this but the Virgo-Leo combination is very common when you have mixed feelings about fronting up/being upfront – and yet the solution will be physical (Virgo). Best to sort the mind before you get to the rest, though. Your subconscious mind is pretty busy. Try to see what it’s up to.

Patricia McCormick-Lee: Do you have predictions for the Sydney situation. I am trying to cross the border to Queensland.

You have a superb Leo Premier there who will protect you and everyone else, no matter what it takes. Expect delays, but I am sure you know that. The furries will understand.

Nayla Mumneh: I have the North Node in Aries, currently applying for a new job.

You will know by September if this is it, or a good second option, or failing that, a really great third option in December-January.

Shyama Friedenson: My mom and I are trying to buy a house. Could you please pull a card to say when/how we will know?

No cards necessary. You are talking about August-September which is terrific, as so many people will want to sell. The wheels turn for people with Cancer-Virgo-Taurus-Scorpio factors. The next ideal slot is January and onwards 2022.

Andrea Tade: I have Mercury at 0 Leo and Venus at 1 Leo. How will the Full Moon pan out?

August is really the deciding factor,  Andrea. A younger generation (your own children, or old enough to be your children) comes through very strongly and a new chapter begins. It’s a really clear beginning for you, to help make up for one or two disappointments involving that generation, in your life.

Raj D: I have the Moon, IC , Proserpina and Hygiea in Leo. What does this mean for me please?

Someone in your family tree was a teacher, mentor, guide, or leader to younger people. Either as a strong parent or as a professor (say) or a children’s coach, author, entertainer, doctor or similar. You have inherited that. You were born to be King to a younger court. Your name is interesting – the Raj in British India comes to mind. So you are here to rule younger faces. A clear signal about that arrives in August.

Brenda: Just ran through all your eclipse dates and they are so spot on. Will the events from 2017-2019 be resolved now? They entail an unresolved relationship (chart details supplied).

Thank you. By the way – do not use Lilith – she is a Jewish symbol – astrology is Roman. All these mixed symbols can be very confusing and confused. Your unresolved relationship will have two or three more jigsaw pieces added in August but you will never, ever get to the bottom of what was going on. Sometimes people just cover things up, don’t they. And you move on!

Joy Moore: Are there any heart health aspects to watch now?

Good question, as Leo rules the heart. Health is ruled by Virgo, though. Perhaps, both, as we move out of Leo weather and into Virgo weather. Use September as well, to answer your questions, as the Sun in Virgo in your Sixth House will shed so much light.
