As the year begins, you may feel torn between putting in more time at work and giving yourself some quality time alone. You can find the right balance if you manage your time wisely, and if you remember to ‘measure twice and cut once.’ Do it right the first time. During February, your primary relationship will keep you busy. If you’re not attached as the season begins, get yourself out there and look around. The new Moon of the 8th could bring someone along who’s just different and unusual enough to keep you interested.
During spring, an urge to learn something new will tempt you into taking classes or taking off for parts unknown with your partner. A proposal or a lovely invitation could come your way after the 23rd of May, too. Be prepared to make some changes for nothing but the most delightful of reasons.
Summer will be a fun, sociable season for you — but expect some delays while traveling or attempting to keep your appointments between July 23rd and August 16th, when communicative, travel-loving Mercury will throw his engine into reverse — in your own sign. During this time, always have a Plan B ready to go, and expect everything to take longer than you’d anticipated. This doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy yourself. In fact, you’ll probably meet someone you never would have crossed paths with if you’d been where you were supposed to be.
Your natural talent for charming chitchat will be even more lethal during October. You may even be able to have a positive impact on a tough family situation. Take advantage of the good, warm feelings the holiday season inspires, and see if you can’t remind loved ones of the importance of staying close. You may have some extra work heaped on your plate during mid-November, but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Travel plans will come together nicely during December, so make your arrangements and rest assured that all will be well.

Your job might feel just a touch too demanding as the New Year starts. Cultivate efficiency and you’ll have plenty of time for other pursuits, but expect to stay busy until at least February 8th. At that point you might find a new job opening or project interesting enough to take you away from your routine. March, especially, will be a time of transition.
Spring is all about new opportunities and directions. If you freelance, expect a new client that brings a different set of expectations. If you’re on the clock, you’ll see a creeping change in the way you relate to your industry. The last week in May will bring an offer or promotion that might be too good to pass up.
After all that change, summer will come as something of a relief to you — slow and steady as she goes. In fact, from late July through mid-August, things will slow down so precipitously that you might stall out, especially if you work with communications, computers or education. You’ll do well to have another project ready to move forward, preferably one on which progress can be made slowly.
October will pose a set of interesting problems for you, but each one can be settled without stretching too far from your normal mode. There might be tensions simmering in the workplace, but you won’t have to get involved with any of that ugliness. November will be busy, especially mid-month, but you’ll actually be glad to have the distraction. The holiday season will go well for you, but might be over too soon.
2006: Leo Romantic
Make time for some you-time as you kick off your brand-new year. The demands on your time are many, and a little maintenance on the ol’ heart by way of some peace and quiet will stand you in good stead. Start your Valentine’s festivities early on February 11th; you can sweep anyone off their feet, regardless of whether it’s your longtime sweetheart or someone brand-new. March 15th may find you uncharacteristically indecisive about some matter of the heart. Give it a few days and your intuition will kick in; then you’ll create some fabulous excitement around the 21st.
Spring brings the reawakening of love (or is that lust?) and the blooming of everything around you, which always makes you want to roar. However, the 11th of April begins a week in which singles on the prowl might want to tone it down a little, while long-term relationships go suddenly from a state of hibernation to spring fever. Look for more action in your love life from May 23rd to 25th, when your generous spirit is rewarded very sweetly indeed — perhaps you’re the one being swept off your feet now.
For a good time in June, you need look no further than the weekend of the 10th, when your always indisputable magnificence is virtually blinding. Issue sunglasses to your crowd of admirers, then see which one looks best in your lovely glow. If you’re coupled up, let your intuition guide you around July 5th; after the fireworks fade, you can spark something special indeed. From July 23rd through August 16th, you’ll want to be extra-super-cautious in communications with those you’re romancing, as Mercury’s in retrograde in your very own sign. Handle the inevitable mix-ups by dishing out some of your trademark generosity.
The very beginning of September’s got your name written on it, so take that first weekend and have your way with it. The 10th and 11th, too, have you-plus-romance all over them. October finds your natural charm turned way, way up; the coupled up can enjoy some extra autumnal coziness, while singletons can attract someone as loving and loyal as they themselves. Holiday socializing heats up in mid-November, with you as always at the center of every party (holding the mistletoe over your own head, of course). Plan a getaway in December; it’ll be romantic, whether you’re traveling with your sweetie or going solo.
