For Leo, the focus during the month of April is on your 9th house of travel, widening horizons, your philosophical outlook on life, education and, for some, legal systems. Your core beliefs are in the limelight and everything is about wanting to find yourself out in the world. There will be lots of discussion surround things foreign, other cultures than your own, travel and moving, as well as your expanding view of life. Your core beliefs also include your faith.
Love, passion and your energy is directed toward career matters, authority and life aspirations. You will feel good about your career direction, and with the Sun entering on the 21st into this part of your life, you may be beginning a new job or a new project. It will be quite a major project and all eyes will be on you. You may also get some kudos for your ability to lead. Mars will infuse this part of your chart with energy and drive, and Venus adds a sparkle of enjoyment to your career. On the 12th, Venus will move on to the 11th house of friends and you will find that you enjoy your friends company tremendously.
There are a few trends that are taking place this month. On April 8th, Jupiter will go direct in your house of Self and personality which is good news because it is the planet of luck and abundance, and, on April 16th, Pluto will go retrograde in your 6th house of daily work schedule and how you are of service to others, placing a more concentrated effort and energy into the transformation taking place in that area of your life.
You’ll begin the month concentrated on matters related to travel, foreign cultures, and your outlook on life and then later on the Sun will spotlight your career, a new job or position, as well as authority figures and your ambitions.
April 1. The Sun in the 9th house opposes the North Node in the 3rd house. The Sun is shining its light brightly in the 9th house of learning, travel, and of core beliefs. You should be focusing on your more immediate environment such as your own neighbourhood, your conscious type of thought (as opposed to the 9th house of higher mind and intangible type of thinking), and the way you process information and express yourself, as that is where you will create opportunity and where you will find your reward, good fortune, and balance — these are your lessons to learn until November, 2015.
April 2. The Sun in your 9th house trine Jupiter in your 1st house. This month your focus and mind seems are on things that are at a distance and to do with foreign cultures and travel. The Sun is reaching out to your 1st house of Self and it seems that the thought of traveling far from home is projecting it’s light on you and how others perceive you.
The Moon in your 2nd house trine Pluto in your 6th house. Your day-to-day work load is where there is and has been a major transformation happening in your 6th house where Pluto will stay until 2023 (yes, a long time). Those transformation will be felt as undercurrents and the process will be gradual. You will notice these changes more when there are aspects to Pluto and it will be as if the door to that part of your life has opened just to give you a glimpse of your progress. It is possible that your feelings and emotions (connected to your values) may be agitated as you deal with changes that are taking place in your work environment.
April 4. Mercury in your 9th house opposes the Moon in your 3rd house. Again, you will feel the push and pull with thoughts and ideas of foreign lands and your immediate environment. If you are planning or thinking about places far away or dealings with foreign cultures, your sibling(s) and family’s emotions may be upset. For example, a sibling may be opposed to your plans, and with the full moon/lunar eclipse in that part of your chart, he or she may be feeling eclipsed by your plans. You will hear about this with Mercury at play.
April 5. Mercury in your 9th house opposes the North Node in your 3rd house. While the moon (your emotions) is stirring the pot, you will feel divided regarding the lessons you are meant to learn by remaining close to home. This is where you are meant to work on finding a balance in your life especially within your everyday conscious thinking and decisions. Until November 2015, this is where your greatest opportunities, good fortune, and happiness will be found.
April 6-7. The Sun in your 9th house conjuncts Uranus in the same house. You may experience some disruption and erratic thinking in your house of travel and higher thinking as Uranus rubs shoulders with the Sun.

The moon in Scorpio in your 4th house has you thinking of your home and your attachment to it and other family matters.
April 7. The Moon in your 4th house sextile Pluto in your 6th house. Your emotions regarding your home and family matters are triggerred by the changes taking place in your work environment.

It’s a 5-star day and you will feel a strong bond and in harmony with these people.

April 9. The Moon in your 5th house sextile the North Node in your 3rd house. Your creative identity is linked to the lessons of the third house of communication, siblings, and conscious choice. Someone younger than you, possibly a sibling or a family member, may help you on your life path.

April 10. The Sun in your 9th house conjunct Mercury in the same house. Your focus, your thoughts and communications are at par with each other during these two days.

April 15-16. Venus in your 11th house opposes Saturn in your 5th house. Your creative or resourceful personality is feeling pulled or strained by friends or group associations.

April 21. Mercury in your 10th house square Jupiter in your 1st house.

This could also be news from one of your parents as they represent authority as well.

April 22-23. Venus in your 11th house sextile Jupiter in your 1st house.

Again, your life path or direction and the lessons you need to learn are in focus and deep down you know that your responsibilities to this area of your life are important for you to balance.
