Leo - April 2020
Hey, lovely lions! March is a month for rolling up your sleeves and tackling that list of chores, as dynamic Mars conjuncts powerful Pluto in your work zone! This determined and highly motivated set of energies will be at its most potent during the days of the 11th to 31st, and will allow you to achieve pretty much anything you set your mind to. Colleagues will look to you for guidance about how to plan their time, and superiors will be impressed by your ability to get the job done, no questions asked. There can sometimes be a slightly obsessive or compulsive edge to Mars/Pluto interactions, so take care that you are getting some rest and not pushing yourself too far. Mars’s sextile with Neptune from the 7th to 21st is promising for work connected to healing and spiritual awareness, and this is also a highly imaginative fortnight in which you will excel at creative projects. It’s also an excellent time to apply for financial support for career or business ventures.
Saturn is on the move this month, and his next stop in your solar chart will be your house of relationships, where he is set to remain for the next two years. Saturn is a commanding presence in the Zodiac and expects nothing less than our best in whatever part of our life he influences, and as he settles here you may notice that you are increasingly called upon to face the consequences of your love choices. Long term partners could suddenly become a burden or require more of your time than before, and if you have been unsure about where a certain relationship is headed, you are more likely to knuckle down and try to make things work throughout this transit. Saturn and Uranus also form a rather challenging connection during the last week of the month which will last off and on into 2021; this is all about asserting your wishes in your close partnerships and ensuring that your partner’s values are in alignment with your own.
Retrograde Mercury continues to cause chaos for your accounts during the days up to the 4th, as decisions about loans, mortgages, credit cards and inheritances, which were finalised during the first week of February, suddenly seem to be turned on their head following problems with communication or misinformation. Don’t panic, you will be back on track when Mercury returns here in direct motion on the 17th, and the last fortnight of the month will be promising for reflecting on and reviewing your financial commitments and debts. The full Moon of the 9th might also see you facing some kind of financial audit or review. Make sure you present your accounts in a clear and honest way, as anything that is kept hidden, whether intentionally or not, could cause you some problems later in the month.
Venus lingers in your travel sector for the first week of March, and in this time will square up to serious Saturn, which could see work commitments preventing you from holidaying or taking an important trip. The days around the new Moon on the 24th are more promising; there is some very positive energy around for broadening your horizons with a vacation or new learning course, and you will feel a strong desire to express yourself to the world. Leos with a birthday between the 20th and 26th of August could be a little shell-shocked though by Mercury coming to a standstill on your natal Sun from the 5th to 16th; this is likely to cause unexpected issues around imparting your thoughts to others. Have a fantastic March!
