The sun, your ruler, squares passionate Mars on December 2, which can be a test of your patience and character. Other people want to see if they can get a reaction out of you. Don?t let them have the satisfaction, Leo.There?s an equally challenging sun-Neptune square on the fifth, during which you might lose your motivation for doing certain things. Don?t give in to the underlying feeling that you?re not good enough, that you don?t know enough, that you aren?t attractive enough. There?s power in believing in yourself when no one else does. Thankfully, Mercury comes out of retrograde on December 6 and moves into fun-loving Sagittarius on the twelfth. You know all those things you had a hard time expressing in the last month? It?s much easier to say what?s on your mind now! A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on December 21 puts you in a happy frame of mind just in time to cross off the things on your holiday to-do list. Do you have time to put a good idea into effect before the new year? If not, write it down and save it for later. You can?t trust your memory during this busy time!
