The year ahead 2014 brings a fruitful time for you on all fronts, Leo - you realize you are so full of determination to succeed that almost nothing can pry you away from your mission. Nothing will stop you from accomplishing what you have set your heart on. Neptune retrograde in Pisces during 9 July to 16 November will prove to be an emotionally taxing period for you. This mystically charged period will remind you that efficiency is built upon stability, so think of it as a maintenance period, ideal for revisiting old problems that call for action but lay ignored. If communication problems exist, Mercury will bring them back to your attention. By taking time out to resolve them now you will be better equipped to make smooth progress in the future. Mars will turn direct on 20th May, after which most of the problems in your life will start clearing up. Post May you are going to surprise yourself when you manage to convert your team into a competitive, charged, nearly-edgy one that will be totally driven to succeed. All this is fine, but if this takes you away from your family or a partner, it is not a good thing. Beginning a new relationship, buying luxury items and investing in objects of art or items of beauty is generally discouraged during the Venus dominating period which will occur around March and end around mid-April. Saturn will go retrograde on March 2 and remain in this mode till July 20.This is the time when you would need to really find a balance between work and home life and not let your loved ones suffer due to work pressure. Romantically, you suddenly see the big picture and why things have occurred in a particular order in the last year.
