Welcome to April, hot Leo! Last month, you focused on your mental health and self-care. This theme continues during the beginning of April. The first significant transit of the month occurs on Tuesday, April 5, when Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and abundance, enters gentle Pisces. Your job is to continue to rest and relax because your health comes into focus during this time. Because Leos love attention, it can feel annoying to focus on things like routine check-ups and sleep, but remember, you’re a lion. Sometimes, you need to bask in the sun or curl up in your cave.
On Sunday, April 10, the chatty planet Mercury enters sensual Taurus, encouraging healthy communication on the homefront. Thankfully, this should help you wrap up any disagreements with a roommate, landlord, or living partner. You may even feel encouraged to do some spring cleaning or redecorate to celebrate the upcoming warmer months.
One of your main goals for April is to make your habitat a place that brings you joy. When the fierce planet Mars enters Pisces on Thursday, April 14, your health continues to be a theme for the month. Don’t worry; this doesn’t mean that you’re going to get sick, but you may feel more like a homebody than usual. If you’re tired, don’t push it. Let yourself sleep. Life is cyclical, and before you know it, you’ll be too busy for a cat nap.
Saturday, April 16, brings a bright full moon in Libra. Libra is the sign of balance and justice, but full moons can be volatile. Everyone may feel one edge during this time. Still, Leos, in particular, need to beware of fights within your friend group. When Taurus season kicks off on Tuesday, April 19, you may continue to feel like a homebody for the next few weeks. If there’s drama going on, it’s all the more reason to embrace this. Trust the stars; you’ll become very busy in the next few months.
While April is pretty low-key for you, if you do have any unfinished conversations, expect to work them out on Friday, April 29, when the communication planet Mercury enters charming Gemini. On this dame date, Pluto, the lord of the underworld, goes retrograde for five months in kinky Capricorn (Capricorns work hard, but they also play hard). As a result, most of your conversations are about sex. You may feel ready to start dating a new gender during this time, or finally, live out a fantasy. Expect your entire sex life to get a makeover during Pluto retrograde, but don’t worry, it’s a glamorous switch-up.
April ends on an intense note with a new moon and solar eclipse in stubborn Taurus on Saturday, April 30. Do everything you can to maintain peace at home during this time, even if that means getting out of the house. While most of April saw you relaxing at home, eclipses are very stressful. Because this one has the potential to lead to fights with partners, landlords, or roommates, perhaps it’s time to break your homebody streak and meet up with friends for a picnic in the park. Have fun, stay safe, and see you next month.
