The last month of 2017 is not kidding around, Leo! It begins with a major opposition between Mars and Uranus on the 1st, as a kind of metaphorical opening BOOM. Then a few days later (on the 3rd) Mercury goes retrograde in your house of romance and creativity. Cue the wistful love songs as you begin ruminating about lovers lost – and prepare for them to suddenly show up in your Insta feed. Yes, darling, this is the time of the year when exes can appear out of the ether, along with abandoned ideas that you feel ready to pursue again. A Full Moon arrives later on the same day, asking you to reflect on your social life. There's some potential tension between the people in your life - your friends and colleagues – and the things you hold most valuable and inspirational. The New Moon (on the 18th) is ideal for setting goals for your romantic and creative life - going forward into the next six months. This is especially valuable if issues arise during Mercury retrograde - the New Moon can be a kind of course-correction. Christmas brings quiet cheer – you'll crave solitude and extra sleep. By New Year's Eve the vibe is super communal again – you can't stop socializing like it's the key to your existence. This night could last well into the first day of 2018.

November packs an intense, emotional punch – but you're more than ready to go deep, Leo. You'll have the opportunity to do just that before the first week of the month is out – on the Full Moon that falls early on the morning of the 4th. This Taurus lunation is luscious, sensual, and leisurely – whatever you do, try not to rush the weekend. Even as you slow your roll, you may be aware of important professional issues coming to a peak. Something that you started about six months ago, or maybe something you simply started thinking about, is finally coming together. Next steps are imminent, so let it percolate over the next few days. Home is where your heart remains for the first three weeks of the month, so aim to spend time with family and close mates – the people that remind you of who you really are. The past can come alive and your nostalgia might be super strong – every day may feel like a major #TBT as you scroll through your memories. This peaks at the New Moon on the 18th, so aim to set intentions around home and family matters – if you want to move, renovate or redecorate within the next six months, this is a perfect moment to plan. After the 21st your fire is back and better than ever – you'll be on a non-stop quest for pleasure during the next four weeks.
