Leo Forecast for 2023: Love & Romance
While the Sun won't return to your relationship sector until 20th January, something that will put the solar spotlight on your relationships at this time each year, Venus makes an early return on 3rd January. The planet of love isn't here for long, but from 3rd January to 27th January she will be working her magic and knowing that once she returns, she won't be back until 2024 will be working to help you not only see what you want from your relationships but to turn that into reality. As with all the planets returning to your relationship sector this year, it will be to connect with Saturn for the last time before he leaves on 8th March. Saturn returned in 2020 to begin what can be a challenging journey, but also an empowering one, getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
When Saturn leaves on 8th March it will be another three decades before the hard taskmaster of the cosmos returns, taking the pressure off you and your relationships but shaping things for years to come. Until then, while Venus will work to leave you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and the Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your relationships from 20th January to 19th February, Mercury's return could be the most significant. Held back by a retrograde phase, the planet of communication won't return to your relationship sector until 12th February and until leaving on 3rd March, as the last planet to have contact with Saturn before he leaves, he will be working overtime to ensure the communication lines are open. It is Saturn's departure five days later that will leave your relationship sector empty for the first time since 2020.
However, it won't be empty for long with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution returning to your relationship sector on 24th March for the first time in our lifetime. Where Saturn was all about discipline and structure, Pluto returns to build on from that, offering an opportunity for a fresh start. Pluto isn't here for long, retrograding back out on 11th June but then returning next January, eventually making this his home until 2044. Meanwhile, while there is less planetary activity on the romantic front this year, what you do have is top of the shelf, including Venus, the planet of love spending an incredible four months in Leo, from 6th June to 9th October. The first planet to return to your romantic sector this year will be Mercury on 10th November, ahead of the Sun's return on 23rd November. It is just a day later that Mars will return for the first time in two years, fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit from 24th November 2023 to 5th January 2024, right through the Christmas, New Year and the holiday period. With Venus, the planet of love here from 30th November to 14th January 2024, this year will end and the next will begin on a romantic high.
