Lets look at the month ahead in detail, Leo!
Leo April Horoscope 2019…
April opens up with powerful celestial weather, as potent Pluto comes into contact with the south node (the point of past karma, and the exit point in the astrological map). Embrace the major shifts that present themselves! For you, Leo, these rumblings and transformations occur in the zone of health, routine, work life and your daily schedule, and therefore you might be experiencing transitions around what you do day-to-day and your everyday habits. Bear in mind that these are long-term developments, not simply confined to April in particular. January’s new moon eclipse in Capricorn and the past two years of Saturn in Capricorn touch upon this theme, and the practices that now present themselves in your usual environment.
Depending on the seeds you’ve sown, the efforts you’ve made towards consistency, and your sense of wellness, you may now encounter notable developments; be willing to accept them in their entirety.
On the 2nd and 3rd of April the moon will join Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, and the area of your horoscope governing your private commitments, investments (including property and shared spaces), and how you manage power dynamics in relation to others. Mercury (now direct in this dreamy and intuitive realm) will be in Neptune’s arms. It’s an ideal weekend for to heighten your reflection around the bonds you form, bringing recent realisations about how you invest your time and money, full circle.
The New Moon in Aries arrives on the 5th April (at 8.50 am GMT) at 15º of the sign. This is a moment to renew your enthusiasm for ventures and experiences, particularly those outside your usual surroundings (i.e. new shores or territories, foreign connections or places that are long-distance, or even a new subject you’re now conquering). Being a new moon you can claim a fresh start, however you might not want to embroil yourself too wholeheartedly, since sun and moon are in tension at this lunation. Planets gathered in your health and work zone create discord in the skies, and you may need to strike a balance between adventure and broader horizons, versus maintaining established routines and a gentler pace.
Sunday April 7th has the potential to deliver clarity, as Mercury and Saturn align in your work-a-day zone and investment house, adding realism and wisdom around how you’re getting on. Consider how time spent in solitude and a peaceful environment compares to being super busy, and who (or what) are the key pillars that enhance your ability to feel secure. Perhaps you have a business partner, friend or loved one that helps relieve the strain of work or health concerns.
We’ve an interesting day Wednesday April 10th, as the vibrant affirming sun in Aries comes into tension with stern, responsible Saturn; go steady and anticipate some kind of influence that blocks or prompts you to slow your roll, Leo. At the same time, Venus, Neptune and Mercury will align with planets in your health, habits and work zone, inviting you to acknowledge how your intuitive sensibilities (and trusted partners) are nourishing your position and workload. Press pause on enthusiastic plans, while the influence passes.
It’s on this day, too, that Jupiter begins its retrograde, which presses pause on plans or fun growth you’ve been experiencing since November; soon after (on the 12th) Mercury clashes with Jupiter, and on the 15th Venus clashes with Jupiter. Two areas of life may be struggling against each other with intensity, which has been the challenge for Jupiter since he entered Sagittarius back on November 8th. With planets in Pisces overwhelming his purpose, it could be hard to embrace the full potential of Jupiter this year. Jupiter Retrograde offers a chance to think over fun projects or hobbies, romance (dating), creative projects or invigorating pursuits that energise and excite you.
On the weekend of the 13th and 14th the sun – your special ruler – experiences tension with Pluto signalling another power struggle (like the 10th) with figures in your everyday environment, at work, or it could be how you maintain consistency and conduct yourself. This could be an emotional time, Leo, so take it easy. One promising aspect is that Venus is aligned with Pluto at this time, so there may be people you encounter that support you and pull through for you – particularly a close friend or someone from your inner circle. Use the lessons from this recent Mercury Retrograde about how you trust and bond with others, to thrive.
Easter weekend begins with the second Full Moon in the zodiac sign Libra, Friday April 19th (11.12 am GMT). The moon peaks at 29º Libra, and could be a revealing moment for information among your closest pals; soon after the sun will move into the Taurus zodiac sign. Expect there to be greater focus on your direction in life with Taurus Season, which puts emphasis on your career, position at large, and the way you come across in the most visible and outward facing role. It will be soon time to reinvent yourself!
On Sunday the 21st April Venus moves into Aries signalling a wonderful time to embrace your adventurous nature, and embark on journeys that expand your horizons. Book that vacation or look further afield for experiences through a course or educational hobby; make space to enjoy new territories or subjects you’ve already begun to explore, perhaps it’s a growing sense of faith that’s inspiring you! Learn something new, Leo love.
Motivator Mars enters Gemini on the 31st March and spends April moving through this sociable, curious, flighty sign. It spends the majority of the month keeping out of trouble and avoiding antagonising aspects or brushing up against the other planets. However, on April 27th, Mars will clash with Neptune in Pisces, so that while part of you is keen to forge ahead connecting to those in wider circles, another side might be keen to hide away, to focus on private pursuits.
