Leo - April 2019
Hi Leo! April is an exciting month for lions, as the Sun makes a beeline for your house of travel! If you are holidaying during the first three weeks of the month, or booking a vacation, you will want to squeeze every last drop out of your experience, and will be keen to learn about the culture and history of your location. If lying in the sun is normally the name of the game for you when you’re away, this holiday will be a different and more dynamic experience! If you can’t get away now, learning something new and exciting about the universe will be just as satisfying; the days around the new Moon are fabulous for beginning a higher education course or learning about a new subject. Just watch for the Sun’s square with the Moon’s nodes between the 8th and 16th, pushing you into a moral dilemma with a work colleague, as confidential information reaches your ears.
Mars energises your friendships this month, and friends will be feeling feisty and full of ideas for how you can spend your time together. New people arriving in your social group now will be dynamic, confident and active; they may irritate you at first with their keenness to take the lead, but in time you will see that what they bring to your life is positive and supportive. You may even welcome this leadership among friends right now, as it gives you a welcome break from always being looked upon to organise your group. Arguments in your friendship circle are more likely at this time, simply because everyone feels assertive about expressing themselves. Mars’s square with Neptune between the 19th of April and 7th of May could also create confusion or deception around interactions with a friend; take care who you trust with your life story during these days.
The full Moon of the 19th is all about being open and honest around feelings, thoughts and actions. This might put you in a personal situation where a choice has to be made about whether or not to share certain facts about yourself. Being totally transparent is the best way forward, particularly if this relates to a new job or promotion opportunity; not only will it be a liberating experience for you, it will also prevent this information being discovered and shared, possibly to your detriment, later on. Lilith continues to press on through your house of relationships this month, persistently encouraging you to live your truth. She continues to push you to express your instinctive side, and falseness or pettiness in love interactions will simply not do now; you will feel a need to be direct about emotions and will expect partners or potential partners to reciprocate.
Now that Mercury is direct again in your money sector, difficulties over communication about debts, loans, taxes and inheritances should begin to subside. If your partner has been having problems with their cash flow over the past six weeks, this is also likely to ease now. Mercury’s challenging connection to Jupiter does persist, however, finally petering out on the 17th, and additional bills for leisure activities which cropped up in late February will really need to be settled now. Mercury’s ongoing sextile with Saturn will also persist for the first fortnight of the month, allowing work to continue on research projects or work-related investigations which have pre-occupied you for some time. Additional responsibilities to an older relative have also been extra-burdensome during this past six weeks, but help is coming your way before we reach the month end, so take heart. Enjoy your month!
