Lions start the week changing plans, making adjustments to trip arrangements and rethinking studies. The 26th sees a New Moon in Taurus, your 10th solar house, which will have a big impact on your career, long-term ambitions and plans during the next few weeks. If you've been meaning to start an important new project, apply for another job or switch careers, this is when you should pull out all the stops and get cracking. Your reputation and professional life will be at the forefront, helping you impress those at the top as you climb the social ladder. You never know what you can do until you try, and you could really surprise yourself in the coming weeks.
The Cosmic Scribe Mercury remains retrograde in your 9th solar house. It's the time when things are likely to go wrong particularly with travel arrangements. From the 27th to the 30th, resolve differences that came about last month; gain some insight into the events and dissipate any ill feelings. Lovely Venus dances back into Aries on the 28th, your 9th solar house, but in a shadow phase helping you regain that enthusiasm about a love relationship, delayed plans and communication with people from overseas, law matters and studies.
It's an especially important time for Lions, as the Moon's Nodes, also known as the Dragon's Head and Dragon's Tail, are about to move into Leo. This is a big deal. The North Node/South Node axis is a karmic significator and is particularly potent just before switching signs. The effects of this change will be felt most strongly as the Mean Node transits the first degree of Virgo, your 2nd house of personal finances and values. It generates potential crises connected with these areas and thanks to the effects of the South Node in the first degree of Pisces, which activates areas of joint resources with your partner, investments, insurance, benefits, legacies and taxes, together with your emotions in close relationships. The Mean Node will move from critical Virgo into proud Leo on April the 29th, with the True Node following suit on May 9th.
With the North Node retrograding into your 1st solar house of personality, and the South Node in your 7th house of partners for the next 18 months or so, karmic lessons can be learnt from identifying your self-worth. This may present challenges within relationships and partnerships and with open opponents, such as in law cases. Find your own singular vibration without the continual dependence on and desire to please others. Although it may be difficult, it will help you grow as an individual taking control and leadership. The plan is to balance your needs with those of other people in your life without sacrificing your own identity, thereby gaining happiness.
