There’s a common misconception that Leos are extroverts 24/7. Not only do the complexities of your birth chart add so much dimensionality to your character, but even the most textbook Leo needs ample time to recharge. In fact, Leos love to sleep, and these lions require safe, nurturing environments to really let down their manes.
This month, pay extra close attention to your nest. Venus goes retrograde on Friday, October 5, which may cause some tension in the domestic sphere. Issues with family, roommates, or even landlords may rise to the surface, so be sure to proceed with caution. Through November 16, try not to jump to any conclusions: Patience is key.
On Monday, October 8, a new moon in Libra kicks off the lunar cycle. The moon is linked to our emotions, but when it occupies the same sign as the radiant sun, there is no distinction between our internal and external realities. This lunation will occur in your communication zone, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself at the center of some juicy gossip. But sip the tea slowly, Leo darling. At this point, you don’t have enough perspective to delineate fact from fiction.
You may be compelled to choose between your professional ambitions and domestic aspirations.
However, if transparency is what you crave, fear not. Everything will come to light by the end of the month when two major events electrify the cosmos. The sun moves into Scorpio on Tuesday, October 23, and a full moon illuminates the night the very next day, on Wednesday, October 24. For you, darling Leo, this activates an extremely important area of your birth chart, linked to home and career, respectively.
Under this radiant sky, you may feel compelled to make a choice between your professional ambitions and domestic aspirations. A word of advice: Do not settle. It may take some negotiating, but trust that you can have it all, and you deserve to. So lean into your inner feline with Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk, a long-wearing matte lipstick that just screams “boss.”
