Welcome to April, Leo. This month brings a stressful eclipse and the start of Mercury retrograde but also sees you becoming more famous, so you’ll be too proud to care. During March, you experienced welcome momentum in your love life. Continue to nurture any romantic relationships because you don’t want to leave anyone on the back burner, but you will be busy during April with creative and professional projects. First up, on Monday, April 3, chatty Mercury enters Taurus and your 10th House of Social Status. This is an ideal transit for networking, so accept any social invitations around this time. April is a magical month, full of surprises, so you never know what a casual after-work drinks invitation could lead to.
Circle Wednesday, April 5, in your calendar because it brings a full moon in opulent Libra and your 3rd House of Communication. Full moons are potent times for manifestation and mark culmination. While (unfortunately) astrologers can’t promise an influx of cash or job offers in this economy, don’t be surprised if you hear professional good news around this time, perhaps due to the aforementioned networking opportunities. So make sure to stay on top of your inbox so that you don’t miss anything.
Venus, the planet of love, enters social Gemini and your 11th House of Friendship on Monday, April 10. This is the perfect time for spending time with friends, but get any late nights and partying out of the way before the new moon and solar eclipse in Aries on Wednesday, April 19. Eclipses are beautiful but stressful celestial occurrences. Astrologers often call them “cosmic wildcards” because they’re associated with sudden and often unexpected changes. They’re also like full moons on steroids in terms of stirring up drama and paranoia. Spending this night relaxing at home with your trusted best friend is a great idea, but you want to avoid partying too hard, as a lack of sleep or overindulgence could create the perfect recipe for eclipse-induced drama.

The day after the eclipse, on Thursday, April 20, Taurus season begins, and, following themes earlier in April, professional recognition continues to be your theme. Such praise may not be related to your day job; you may also reach new heights in creative or passionate projects. Leos need attention, so, like a luxurious lion bathing in the sun, soak it up. You’ve worked hard and deserve all the praise that you can get. Just make sure to double-check any important emails for typos or make sure that you’re texting the right person because, on Friday, April 21, Mercury goes retrograde. Don’t stress. You’ve survived many Mercury retrogrades before. Just proofread, allow for extra travel time, and ignore any toxic exes who hit you up, as they tend to reappear during Mercury’s backward dance. Enjoy the attention, and we’ll see you in May.
