Welcome to April, dear ones!
April is bringing with it some lingering Mercury retrograde vibes, followed by a spark of motivation, drive, and call to take action. Then, towards the end of the month, we are encouraged to get real about the resources we need to sustain the actions we’ve implemented in order to reach our goals and keep moving forward on this wild ride of life as we move into Taurus season.
Here’s a high level overview of what’s happening this month:
April 4: Mercury and Neptune conjunct in Pisces
April 5: New Moon in Aries
April 11: Jupiter stations retrograde
April 19: Full Moon in Taurus
April 21: Sun enters Taurus
April 25: Pluto stations retrograde
April 30: Saturn stations retrograde
The Sun is currently in the sign of Aries. Aries is a fire sign. It is pure passion and heat.
It has an idea and doesn’t even think twice before courageously moving forward to birth that idea into reality. Aries loves risks, loves adventure, loves flexing its courageous muscles. What’s been scaring you? Lean into that Aries courage and take action! This particular Aries season started out on a more subdued note, which continues through the first several days of the month due to the Mercury and Neptune conjunction in Pisces.
When Mercury and Neptune come together in this deep, watery sign, there is lovely, creative, and mind-expanding energy available to us when we open up to it. Keep letting your mind wander and explore the dimensions of possibility related to what you most want in your life. Something to note is that Pisces and Neptune aren’t so great about boundaries. Pay close attention to when you notice anger and/or frustration creeping in. These feelings are fantastic indications that a boundary has been crossed. Use the force of Aries to set those boundaries and keep yourself revitalized and charged to take action towards what you want!
The New Moon in Aries on April 5 is sure to bring us that Aries spark that we need to start taking action towards what we want. We take our dreams, our goals, our ideas down to earth, into the realm of 3D reality by implementing the actions necessary.
Then, on April 19th, we have a Full Moon in Libra. Aries is oriented towards “me, myself, and I” while Libra acknowledges it is one part of a greater whole. How are we, as individuals, showing up and contributing to the greater whole of the collective?
What action can we personally take to impact the greater good for all?
We have some bigger planets going retrograde later this month. Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn will each appear to change their course, creating opportunities for deeper introspection and transformation in the area of your life where Capricorn and Sagittarius reside in your birth chart. This will be a real opportunity to get honest about which truths support us and which truths block and no longer serve us on our path to grow, expand, and evolve. So again, pay attention to your anger, and any other difficult feelings and emotions that surface, and dig deep. Be honest with yourself. What are you learning about yourself during this time? What are you noticing in the collective?
As the Sun enters Taurus on April 21, we will shift our attention to sustaining the actions we put into place during this Aries season. Then, later this month, make sure to secure the resources you will need to sustain the actions you’ve implemented. What do you need to feel secure, nourished, supported, and energized while you continue to pursue your dreams?
