Reading time: just 3 minutes that may make your week easier.
Leo Weekly Horoscope from May 10 to May 16
How to network 2021-style: That's the challenge Leos should eagerly face this Tuesday, May 11. As the year's only new moon in Taurus powers up your tenth house of career, the doors to opportunity are flinging open everywhere. Whether you walk through them or simply see them as a good sign is up to you. But this is not time to be shy or modest, Leo! If you have the credentials, pitch yourself with confidence. And if you don't? Then, use your goddess-given charms to avail yourself as a volunteer, intern or apprentice. A few hours of time "donated" per week can bring priceless returns when it comes to building a contact list.
Treat this new moon like a lunar launch pad for your professional aspirations. What goals would you like to manifest by the corresponding full moon—a potent lunar eclipse—on November 19? Focus on one or two epic (but achievable) missions. Then, work backwards, mapping out the step you'll take to get from there to here. Breaking down the journey into action steps is all the motivation you need to get started. Be precise, but avoid perfectionism. Fluctuations and detours are par for the course in every plan.
The tenth house also rules expertise, and this new moon may bring some fascinating mentors into your orbit. Sign up for a masterclass, incubator or online coaching if you want to accelerate progress. Getting the pro perspective can also shed illuminating light onto a problem that's been vexing you. Already a captain of your industry? People may seek you out for guidance. So, Leo, what's your hourly rate?
Another game-changing shift begins this Thursday, May 13, as lucky and life-enhancing Jupiter plunges into Pisces and your eighth house of sizzling seduction and joint financial ventures. This is the first of three laps Jupiter will do through this realm. (The others are from December 28, 2021, to May 10, 2022, and again from October 28 to December 20, 2022.)
During this electrifying transit, you can master the fine art of drawing exactly the right people into your life—accomplished, wildly creative types who are on your wavelength and, perhaps, even further along in their life paths than you. Keep the bar high, only allowing serious contenders through the gate. You may be requesting financial statements or giving people a look at your own books in the days ahead.
Jupiter rules growth, expansion and exploration, and the eighth house is the domain of intimacy, eroticism and metaphysics. You could weave these together into the most inspirational AND aspirational relationship you've ever been in. During this Jupiter cycle, loyalty AND freedom are not mutually exclusive. Sex-positive Leos could enjoy one of the most richly exploratory seasons they've had in a long time! Keep an open mind about different types of partners and arrangements, like a long-distance affair. A simmering connection could turn the "official" corner by the end of 2022 (if not sooner). But you'll also need to watch out for obsessive thinking and derailing emotions, like jealousy or possessiveness.
Attached Leos may want to challenge themselves by stretching their boundaries during this cycle. You might enjoy taking a couple's massage class or Tantric workshop, or sharing your wildest fantasies with bae. Simply being open to these things can be a serious turn-on. Because Jupiter is the lord of travel, going on a trip together can strengthen your bond. The destination almost doesn't matter as long as you have plenty of privacy and sexy time on the itinerary. On the flip side, if you can't reignite the embers of passion no matter what you do—including counseling—you may decide to consciously uncouple. Take the time to separate with kindness and gratitude, acknowledging all the positive things the union has brought you.
