This Month: Leo
April 2018 Monthly Horoscope for Leo: You begin April having just experienced a Full Moon in your solar third house, dear Leo, which awakened you to the need to connect, learn, and share. This can be a busy time of the month, and this pace continues throughout the month in some shape or form with a strong showing of planets in your sector of work, health, and routines. However, you also have your eye on extracurricular activities and learning, so you have a full plate now. This needs managing for you to enjoy April more heartily since demands on you are high.
Venus is at the top of your solar chart until the 24th, and you're in a lovely light on professional and public levels. Venus helps out, in fact, with the tension and pressure related to everyday work, effort, health routines, and the daily grind. You may very well gain some appreciation for the behind-the-scenes efforts you put in that aren't always noticed.
Mars aligns with Saturn on the 2nd and then with Pluto on the 26th. In between those dates, energetic Mars can feel stuck between a rock and a hard place! There can be pressured situations or possibly even implosive circumstances at times. However, you're in a good position on the 2nd for solving problems, getting work done, and getting over emotional hurdles. You could be working particularly hard at improving your working conditions. Putting in extra effort, following the rules, and facing realities are all important now and will lead to good things, even if you'd rather be picking up the pace. Facing up to facts with work and health matters can be in focus now, and this allows you to make solid, realistic plans of action.
The 10-14 is a creative, imaginative, and fruitful window, especially for your work and practical goals. Competitiveness can spur you on now, even if it's only competing with yourself (improving on your personal best)! You should find your stamina level strong, and you might find it easier to get the job done without having to waste extra energy. It's a good time for business sense and professional appeal, and a visionary approach serves you well. There is an intuitive understanding of others' feelings and moods, and this affects your dealings with them. It's a good time to engage an audience, group, or significant someone in your life. You may have been ramping up a health routine or work project these days, and you can benefit from doing so in creative or imaginative ways -- you might go dancing rather than to the gym, or work on design elements of a project, for example. Even so, with Mercury turning direct and a New Moon occurring on the 15th, brand new beginnings should wait until these two events pass.
The New Moon on the 15th can prompt a new beginning related to education, travel, or other mind-expanding activities. Even so, a slow take-off is most appropriate now. On the 19-20, the Sun moves to the top of your chart. Venus has padded the way for you, and while Venus leaves this sector of your solar chart on the 24th, the Sun remains here until May 20th, extending special attention to career, public image, professional dealings, and life path goals. You'll want to perform exceptionally well during this period!
Venus moves into your friendship sector on the 24th and into harmony with your sign, boosting your enjoyment of activities with others, groups, or the community. Networking can benefit you now. People receive you very well, enjoying your company even more than usual.
Just before this move, on the 22-23, you're in excellent shape for taking part in activities that heal, replenish, and renew your spirit. You'll also want to resolve a problem or take action on a matter to further your goals, as you're not content to only think about what you want to do at this time. Work and home life are areas of particular interest on these lines. This is a good time for finding ways to improve and advance your projects. You are more determined than usual to make things happen, and with your heart engaged, you can move mountains. Mind you, Mars is likely to perform better, or at least a little more freely, after it passes Pluto on the 26th.
Speaking of, the 25-26 is a time for completely reworking a project or resolving a problem, likely related to work or health. You're likely to want to wipe the slate clean and begin anew in some area of your life. Changes are essential now, and while tension can run high, this can help push you to new heights. You might decide to eliminate habits in your routine that are counter-productive in order to focus on those that serve your higher goals. Watch for power struggles with others or succumbing to frustration when being productive makes more sense. The last few days of April pull your attention to home and family life. It's an excellent time for making plans to improve your personal life.
This Year: Leo
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is potentially brilliant for home and family life and improved habits, routines, health, and work, dear Leo. You’re developing practices that will benefit you many times over and for years to come. Even so, you can be very busy making adjustments and fixing problems before things run smoothly. Later in the year, creative and romantic life improves.
In many ways, 2018 is about establishing yourself. You’re likely to work hard and rest hard this year! Saturn in your work and wellness sector encourages you to take care of business but doesn’t necessarily want you to work harder as much as it promotes working smarter. Saturn in this part of your solar chart reminds you that more isn’t always better. Streamlining and simplifying your daily routines makes sense now. You are in need of more structure when it comes to work, daily routines, and health initiatives, and while it involves effort and persistence, you’ll thank yourself for doing it. Orderliness will be empowering, and paying close attention to deadlines, details, and rules will help tidy up your mind and emotions so that you feel freer to enjoy yourself when pleasure calls, which it is likely to do frequently this year!
This is an excellent year for starting new regimens to better your health and well-being, such as regular exercise and more structured and productive use of your time. This transit lasts until 2020 and is bound to bring you to a healthier, more focused and productive state. If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard or too little, this is the time for addressing the issue. It’s a great time to nail down plans and programs that keep you adequately busy and organized. It’s imperative to remember to focus on long-term benefits in these areas of life rather than short-term rewards, which can be sparse for the time being.
What you’re beginning this year may very well last, so pay close attention to your basic instincts and interests, which will serve you exceptionally well. This is because, without necessarily even knowing it, you are more in touch with what’s in your heart at this time. The very beginnings of long-term businesses or projects might happen for you in 2018.
You continue to seek comfort, but also growth and improvement, in your domestic life in 2018. It’s one of your priorities, and the “work” you do with family and in the home can benefit you for years to come. Get comfortable with yourself – the cosmos are fully supporting this endeavor! You’ll benefit greatly and indefinitely, but especially in the cycle beginning in November when energy is ripe for expressing and sharing yourself in powerful ways. There may be a new hobby or creative activity that you take on, and for some of you, you’ll be bringing an old interest or pleasure back to life. If you’ve always wanted to pursue a specific craft, art, or creative interest, now is the time to do so. You’ll also have most of 2019 to get on this. Your romantic life can blossom from November forward. People are very interested in you romantically speaking, and opportunities can abound. You are pouring more of your heart and soul into what you create and share. This can be the time for a long-distance romance for some.
Eclipses in your sign and opposing sign continue this year and will complete in early 2019. These continue to nudge and prod you to define your life in terms of your partnership needs, bringing up themes of cooperation versus independence. You’re discovering how you can express yourself authentically and reach your relationship goals as well. This can be a period of a change of relationship status for some Leos.
Uranus reaches the top of your solar chart in mid-May but in November, returns to complete its journey of your sector of spirit and adventure. While this is a period of transition for Uranus, it’s also a time when you’re seeing the beginning of the end of a seven-year theme and the very beginnings of a new one. Your career direction and relationships with authority figures may very well change in the coming years. Increasingly, you’ll be finding the need to bring more personality and less routine to your career.

2018 Love Horoscope for Leo
Your sector of romance and creativity can use some free and easy, light and fun energy after an (almost) three-year Saturn transit. Fortunately, this arrives November 8th, 2018. This thirteen-month transit occurs only once every twelve years or so, and it”s excellent for bringing more fun, entertainment, and romance into your life. It will run until December 2019. Jupiter’s transit of fellow Fire sign, Sagittarius, is a fiery and optimistic one, and it vibes well with your fiery nature.
Until November 8th, Jupiter continues to increase your attention as well as joy and happiness levels on the home front and with family. However, if you use this gentle, quiet transit well, and you look very carefully for opportunities, you can better prepare yourself for the more overt opportunities of the upcoming Jupiter in Sagittarius transit. Aim to feel more comfortable in your own skin. Slowly, you are building up your confidence. You may be getting settled in physical ways on the level of house and home, or connecting in more rewarding ways with your family or like-family loved ones. However, you are also more fully connecting with what you need and want on a very basic, fundamental level. The better you get in touch with yourself and your basic needs, the more natural confidence you’ll have when Jupiter enters your romance sector in November and encourages you to share your affections and creations with others.
Jupiter is, in fact, the ruler of romance and dating in your solar chart, so what’s happening to Jupiter has a direct impact on your casual…cont’d
