You've got something to say—and the world is eager to listen! The Sun is in Libra and your third house of communication until October 23, stimulating your curiosity and giving you the urge to connect. Your sign is famous for making friends wherever you go, and during this social high season, you could add some savvy new members to your squad. If you've got a message or a visionary idea to share, start spreading the news. Give your brilliant creations some Godspeed through social media, word-of-mouth marketing and clever campaigns.
This is no time to hang back and wait to be "discovered," Leo (not that you really would). With global Jupiter wrapping up a 13-month visit to Libra on October 10, writing, media, teaching, anything related to communication gets a powerful planetary push. The Libra new moon on October 19 is ideal for starting a conversation with decision makers, pitching or sending out an email blast. Seeds planted today will unfold in the coming six months. Keep your eyes peeled for kindred spirit types—one or two of them could become creative collaborators. And once assertive Mars settles into Libra, from October 22 to December 9, the world won't mistake your mighty roar for a whimper!
The October 5 Aries full moon is a particularly good day to cast a wide net, as it illuminates your visionary ninth house and pushes you to go even bigger with your ideas. This is the realm of global expansion. Why limit yourself to being a local sensation when vaster terrain awaits? A cross-cultural or long-distance contact could play into events now. Publishing, education, travel and entrepreneurship are themes that could resonate at this full moon. Maybe you've got a big idea that could be extended through a workshop or a TED-style talk. Surely you've got a book or a keynote speech in you somewhere, Leo. Maybe a YouTube channel with your name on it?
Your trailblazing approach could position you as a thought leader or a "brand evangelist" like Guy Kawasaki. Getting paid to have colorful opinions that inspire people is a no-brainer for your exuberant sign! Bonus: This full moon coincides with the year's only meetup of magnetic Venus and motivator Mars, which are both in your money sector. Three words for ya, Leo: Make. It. Rain!
Whatever the case, you might want to start setting up a home office. On October 10, cosmic kahuna Jupiter will make its once-a-year move, leaving Libra and plunging into watery Scorpio until November 8, 2018. Scorpio rules your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations, and Jupiter's sprawling touch will make these central themes in your life over the next 13 months. After a nomadic year, many Leos will feel ready (eager, even) to put down roots. You could move or buy property, sell a home or travel to connect with your ancestry.

The fourth house rules women, mothers and female relatives in particular. Your relationship with your mom could evolve, or you may take on a new maternal/parental role yourself. If you're trying for a pregnancy or an adoption, Jupiter's visit to your family-oriented fourth house is an opportune time. (Leo Kylie Jenner announced her pregnancy right on the heels of Jupiter moving into her fourth house—divine timing?) If you're already a parent, you might spend more quality time with your kids. A wise and inspirational woman could play a big role in your growth this year, perhaps as a mentor or boss. Overall, you'll crave more "feminine" energy in the coming months, whether that comes through the people you meet, a creative outlet or just settling into a slower day-to-day pace. Chateau Leo could become a hub for dinner parties, salons and cozy confabs. Get inspired by this gallery of casual-cool, pillow-strewn "party rooms" by boho-chic designer Justina Blakeney.
With Jupiter in this sensitive zone, moods can run deep and fluctuate often. You'll need extra time for self-care now. This is a fruitful phase for therapy, since you could be processing heavier emotions—which is a good thing, but you'll need extra support. Carve out time for solitude and creative practices, such as journaling, painting and writing. You might enjoy Susannah Conway's "Journal Your Life" online course, an innovative class on connecting with your intuition and deeper desires (registration opens October 4). During this nostalgic spell, Leos who live far from their loved ones might decide to pull up stakes and move closer to your clan. Or perhaps the opposite: Growth-oriented Jupiter finally emboldens you to cut the cord and move away from home. Loyal as you are, you're excited to become your own person, removed from family obligations and expectations that can hold you back. If you've dreamed of living abroad, global Jupiter's influence could present a golden opportunity to try it. Jupiter was last in Scorpio from October 2005 until November 2006. Reflect on your home and personal life during that time, as you might see themes reemerge.
Once the Sun joins Jupiter in Scorpio on October 23, you'll have a month to deep-dive into domesticity. The Martha Stewart vibes reach critical mass on October 26, when the Sun and Jupiter unite for their annual conjunction. This is an especially lucky day for house-hunting, a long trip to the day spa or trying for a baby. If "none of the above" is more appealing, then just get ready to feel a rush of heartfelt emotion—and to pick some worthy recipients of your five-star Leo affections. Now, who's up for Netflix night and a home-cooked meal at your place?
