New ideas and discoveries can be made on a private and emotional level today, dear Leo, as the Moon meets Mars in your solar eighth house.

You can quickly get all fired up about a matter, but you are inclined to keep things to yourself, or to only share your excitement with someone very close to you.

You might be tackling tricky power dynamics with a partner, or enjoying some exciting sparks and new feelings. Emotions are internalized and may even be inflamed.

While this transit might stimulate frustrations over inequalities you’ve experienced, it’s also a good time for taking action on an issue that has been a long time coming, particularly related to finances or intimacy.

A potential channel for this extra energy involves pouring yourself into a pet project, interest, or research.

Pleasing your family and staying true to yourself at the same time is a tough act to pull off. There is a sensation of being pushed to reexamine the way in which you balance your desires with everyone else’s.

Although the quarrelsome conversation between the self-governing Sun and value-conscious Venus adds pressure to the situation, it’s beneficial in the long run.

However, you may need to shake up how you prioritize your needs at home. Complacency is a silent killer of creativity. Change is inevitable; shifting as a result of tension can be liberating as it frees you to grow.

With the Sun just a week away from leaving a playful part of your chart and returning to your work sector, something that happens at this time every year, this is the point when a balance between work and play starts to become a priority.

While that is still the case, even before the Sun makes that shift, it is clear that forces on both fronts are not only evenly balanced, but in this for the long haul.

A balance between work and play is not just something playing out in the closing weeks of 2018, but will continue throughout 2019.

Today’s Quote: “We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but of appreciating what we do have.”
