2018 begins for you on an interesting note, Leo. You're keenly aware of whatever psychological obstacles might be holding you back from living a more fulfilled and emotionally healthy life. This awareness is also accompanied by a true capacity to release yourself of these patterns that are not serving you or your best interests. A beautiful Full Moon in your 12th House of Escape on January 1 will help you let go of memories or attachments to the past that you know are blocking you from your future. If you let go of these without resistance, you'll soon realize that they really never owned you to begin with -- you only thought they did.
Adding to the power of January is the fact that you'll continue to focus with great determination on mastering your craft and schedule. Becoming responsible with the use of your time and how you do your work will be a central theme for all of 2018, thanks to Saturn now making his way through your 6th House of Routine. Efficiency will be the name of the game this year, and you're ready to roll your sleeves up and do the work.
The only caveat comes up at the New Moon on January 16. As you try to implement new ways of doing things, you could become frustrated if you're forced to roll with the punches. Try to embrace changing circumstances at work that are beyond your control. Do your best and remember that the world doesn't flow according to our neat little plan. See the dips as opportunities to test your flexibility rather than as frustrating hurdles. Perception is everything -- a Lunar Eclipse in your sign on January 31 will help you shift yours into its proper place.
