Diana's Monthly Leo Forecast for April 2016
SENSING THE POTENTIAL
Until the 20th the Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits and you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
Until the 6h Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining options outside of the box. Discussions and/or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning or an unfamiliar environment. Thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon, a plan may be forming in your mind. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. Maybe there is a breath of fresh air from further afield or guidance from those with specialist knowledge or just someone with a refreshing slant on things. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.
From the 6th discussions, correspondence and targets may involve bureaucracy, parental figures or the ‘powers that be’. Or it may mean more ‘official’ type paper-work or correspondence. Career, a new enterprise, or those who may facilitate your aims could be highlighted. You may find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage. You will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire. Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind.
Until the 6th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among you but also regarding material resources which come through another. Formally or informally things may become more intimate or ’involved’. Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
From the 6th Venus supports warmer more supportive relationships with those from far away, or from a different cultural background. Travel with a partner is possible or someone expands your thinking with their experience or background. You are more likely to connect with others who have a knowledge or expertise which helps you add pieces of the puzzle. This could be financially advantageous. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a wider stage about something and it could prove to be lucrative. Publications or educational establishments could be highlighted and you and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with wisdom could be helpful, or, through their contribution and support you ultimately get a better understanding or material reward for your joint efforts.
A NEW SENSE OF SELF?
Mars is in a more spontaneous, and for some, romantic area, giving you the trigger to be more in the mood to take a chance on love or to speculate upon other possibilities. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions and don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness will tend to come to the fore. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your ‘child within’ but equally, you could be busier because of children or younger ones in your life. Overall this is the time to get active with projects you enjoy and which are rewarding and empowering. Great for the entrepreneurs and ‘creatives’ amongst you, and you may be more in the mood to invest time or resources on an outside chance.
Saturn is now in Sagittarius and will stay there until late 2017. This puts her into a positive angle to your Sun sign. Overall, it can mean ultimate success if you pay more focused, nurturing attention to your creativity, or playful, fun activities over the long-term. Equally, any leisure or creative activities may be harder to organize or you have less time for them or you have to be persevering to achieve success with them. Also more responsibility regarding children/young ones, animals or a romantic relationship, is a possibility. A more disciplined, patient approach will help them bear fruit. It may also mean that, because of one (or more) of these examples you feel held back or limited in your freedom to frolic so you will need to proceed in a more patient, organized fashion. Then you are on the road to building a solid and robust structure which stands the test of time in any of these areas.
Leos born 5th-9th August or with 14-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A FERTILE SOIL TO EXPERIENCE AND GROW
Jupiter is in your area of piggy-bank, property and possessions. So, until Sept/2016 remain open to whatever resource, knowledge or experience might help you expand mentally or physically into fresh territories. Such decisions could teach you a great deal and even turn out to be lucrative or worthwhile in other ways down the line.
Jupiter here will also help you decide what is of highest priority to you at this stage in your life‘s journey. He will help you to think positively about basic resources (money or property) and he will help you realize your own worth through opportunities for you to show others what talents and abilities you have. Others are more likely to show appreciation of your property, talents or experience over this long transit.
Leos born 4th-8th August with 12-16 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
