Good news Leo! Your chart ruler Sun is headed into its sign of greatest strength this month, and please keep in mind this only occurs once a year. So get out your calendar and mark April 13 – May 12. This is your time to SHINE!
One day to note in your calendar is April 13. Pluto will be squaring off with your ruler Sun, just as he enters Aries. You may want to rebel from authority or desire to break free government restrictions around social interactions and limited movement at this time.
Additionally this period with Sun in Aries is a wonderful time to connect with your spiritual path. Especially during the new Moon on April 22 (see the new Moon forecast further down in this horoscope). You may feel like journeying to a foreign country or taking a course to develop your spiritual path. The good news is you can do that virtually at any time! Even though you will feel like packing your suitcase, you will want to visualize yourself in a foreign land. Or maybe you can create your own staycation retreat space in your home.
Your sixth house of work, daily routine, and health will be very active for some time to come. Particularly so in April with fiery Mars, serious Saturn, transformative Pluto and expansive Jupiter all competing for your attention! Mars being super strong in Capricorn for most of the month and will also be casting his laser beam gaze to your rising sign Leo, so watch your pitta (fire) and be mindful of impatience, being quick to anger and frustration.
Especially once Sun enters Aries on April 13 and on the full Moon day, April 7 when mighty Mars and unpredictable Uranus are squaring off for control. The areas of your life you may be struggling with is your spiritual path and the more mundane responsibilities in life.
April 7 Full Moon in Chitra Nakshatra
With the full Moon in your second house of wealth and assets, money will be on your mind. Certainly with the unpredictability of the economy and so many people out of work or wondering if they will have a job after the pandemic is over this full Moon has the potential to be very emotional for you.
It is a great time though to take stock of your spending and see what can be cut out both short and long term to help you secure a stronger future. The full Moon signals endings and this is the one full Moon in this sector of your chart all year. Saturn will be sending his full support to the full Moon and will encourage responsible spending and saving, especially through 2022.
April 22 New Moon in Ashwini
New Moon new opportunities for healing! With your chart ruler Sun and the Moon both in Ashwini this will also lend itself to healing past trauma from the subconscious mind. Serious Saturn will ask that you take a conservative approach, although Moon will connect with unbounded Uranus just a few hours after the new Moon, urging you to throw caution to the wind. Find the balance.
