Read your sign's 2024 horoscope to see what's in store for you this year, or check out the Leo personality profile.

Welcome to April, Leo. Sure, this month comes with its share of astrological challenges—namely, a Mercury retrograde and a solar eclipse. While these events might seem daunting, April offers a stark contrast to last month's call for caution that came with an eclipse. Instead, it's your time to step into the spotlight, forging ahead despite any celestial hiccups with the kind of iconic forward momentum only a Leo knows how to build.

Monday, April 1, marks the start of Mercury retrograde in Aries, casting a shadow over travel plans. Leos, more than any other sign, could find themselves ensnared in travel delays. Whether you're navigating a commute to a friend's house for a party or even Zoom meetings, it's wise to factor in additional time to mitigate the retrograde's disruptive effects. You're a diva, for sure, but that doesn't mean that you want the extra stress that comes along with always being the last one to arrive (especially in professional matters).

By Thursday, April 4, as pretty Venus dances into Aries, you're in the mood for a makeover. Your style is an extension of your regal essence, dear lion, and this transit encourages you to switch it up. Whether contemplating a new hair hue or opting for a cute piercing or trendy tattoo, how you define and express this aspect of yourself is entirely your prerogative. Around this date, some of you may decide to opt for injectables, while others will dismiss the idea entirely. Take some time to think about what kind of style evolution you're craving before you commit to anything.

The Monday, April 8 new moon and solar eclipse in Aries illuminate your 9th House of Philosophy. Unlike the tumultuous lunar eclipse last month, this event doesn't spell endings, but it might still stir unease. As a sign ruled by the sun, Leos have a heightened sensitivity to solar eclipses; allow yourself to turn down party invites, minimize workloads, and embrace relaxation around this date. Reducing stress is crucial for maintaining your well-being. Majestic cats need lots of sleep, especially around solar eclipses.

Friday, April 19 ushers in Taurus season, spotlighting your 10th House of Social Status. Get excited, Leo, and revel in the anticipation of increased visibility and acclaim that comes with the sun stationed in the part of your chart that's all about becoming more well-known. The weeks ahead are ripe for elevating your profile, be it through professional achievements, creative endeavors, or gaining more social media followers (if you're into that sort of thing). Your natural penchant for drawing attention aligns perfectly with the cosmic energy at play, promising avenues for greater recognition.

Whether you're aiming to expand your influence, increase your income, or transition into a new professional role, the cosmos fervently supports your ambitions.

There is a night that is best spent laying low: Tuesday, April 23, which brings a full moon in intense Scorpio. Although full moons are generally less intense than eclipses, the dramatic flair of Scorpio can still provoke a sense of unease. Consider this another divine nudge to embrace leisure and chill out from the comfort of your own home. Shortly after, on Thursday, April 25, you'll be happy to hear that Mercury goes direct, reducing delays and travel hiccups, although it's still wise to always plan for a little extra travel time as you don't like to be rushed through getting ready.

Your acclaim and opportunities continue in even stronger force now that Mercury is direct, especially around Monday, April 29, which sees opulent Venus gracing Taurus and your 10th House of Social Status. The stars are aligning to bolster not just your professional life but also your personal brand. So whether you're aiming to expand your influence, increase your income, or transition into a new professional role, the cosmos fervently supports your ambitions around this time. Considering that on the following day, Tuesday, April 30, the fighter Mars settles into its home sign of Aries, so your assertiveness and drive could reach peak levels. Leos, if there's something you've been yearning for, now's the moment to claim it. Your boldness, coupled with the fiery energy of Aries, makes nearly any goal within reach. Enjoy all the success, don't forget to rest, and we'll see you in May.
