Leo Monthly Horoscope

April 2024

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, but will always end the month in your career sector, there is an awareness at this time of year of a need for balance. Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, but not to the same strict timetable, so will often return a few days or weeks ahead or behind when the solar spotlight shifts from one side of life’s fence to the other. At the moment, the Sun is travelling ahead of Mercury and Venus, so when he leaves on 20th April and returns to your career sector, he will leave them behind in an adventurous part of your chart. However, there will be a need to make work/life balance a priority from the start, for while the annual shift from the adventurous to the professional side of life’s fence won’t happen until later in the month Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion has reached his last full month in your career sector and of a 12 month quest for professional growth and expansion. Jupiter is not only gathering speed and momentum, but from 18th April to 22nd April will catch up and align with Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected who has been here since 2019. It has been eight decades since the planets of luck and synchronicity have aligned in your career sector and with the Sun returning on 20th April, it will be right in the middle of some of the most auspicious days here in eight decades. Yet with Venus not leaving an adventurous part of your chart until 29th April, Mercury here all month and Mars returning in the early hours of May, there will still be a need for balance. Meanwhile, Mars will spend the whole of April in your financial sector, with the warrior planet of the cosmos making the most of his first chance in two years to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit.

April 2024

It was back in January that the Sun and Pluto both returned to your relationship sector on the same day, with the Sun having just turned the solar spotlight onto your relationships a few hours before the planet of change and transformation returned. Pluto had spent a few months here last year, but he never got past the doorstep and retrograded back out less than three months later. Pluto had returned just a few weeks after Saturn’s three year visit ended and judging it too soon after what could have been some challenging years, retrograded back out with the promise that he would return. Since Pluto’s return in January the Sun, Mercury, Venus and finally Mars moved through, all with a more immediate focus on your relationships while he settled into a journey that will keep him here until 2044. As you move into the new month Mars has only just left, with Pluto in his early days on his own. While as the planet of change and transformation Pluto can bring sudden change, as he is here for the next 20 years, as long as you don’t get stuck this will be more of a gradual evolution rather than a sudden revolution. However, if you do get stuck, he will pull out the crowbar to prize you loose. Pluto won’t be on his own until Venus returns later in the year, with the Moon returning each month with a chance to check in. The Moon will make its first visit since Mars left and since Pluto shifted the focus from the short to the long term and onto focusing more on the journey, from 3rd April to 6th April. As always, this will be a chance to check in and to become more emotionally engaged, but for the first time since he returned in January, while it is only Pluto here. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your romantic sector, it helps that you will start the month with the Moon here. The Moon will leave on 1st April, but these romantically charged lunar vibes will be back again from 26th April to 28th April. With Venus, the planet of love in an adventurous part of your chart from 5th April to 29th April, this makes the final days of her mission to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together some of the best.

April 2024

You have reached what is an important and positive month on both sides of the financial fence and while there may have been some financial tension towards the end of last month, it was more that planets on both sides were ironing out some balance issues. While the Sun will always wrap up his month long visit to your financial sector on the March equinox each year, it is not uncommon for things to still be active moving into May while with Saturn and Neptune here all year, things will never go completely off the boil. What is not the norm is to have planetary activity in your income sector at this time of year and especially as well supported as it is. While only a tiny player the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment has friends in high places and having returned last October for what is normally a three month visit, a retrograde turn will keep her here until August. Juno will not only turn direct on 22nd April but two days after the Sun’s return to your career sector and just as Jupiter is spending his last full month there. Juno has also formed a partnership with the dwarf planet Ceres in your work sector, making this a good month across the income, work and career fronts. That should be especially so when the Moon moves through your income sector from 19th April to 21st April. It is while the Moon is here, sharpening your nose for money and acting as a trigger that the Sun will return to your career sector on 20th April, while Juno’s direct turn on 22nd April will take the brakes off income potential. On the other side of the financial fence, you not only have Venus, the planet of money in your financial sector until 5th April but Mars will spend the whole of April here. This is going to continue the competition between both sides of the financial fence but as the warrior planet of the cosmos, this is going to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit. The Moon’s return to your financial sector from 5th April to 7th April will ensure your financial instincts are sharp as Venus leaves and Mars takes the lead.
