The above headlines along with recent US political news highlight the energy of April which is bolstered by many subtle celestial influences occurring to help you see Truth and recognize imbalances in authenticity and integrity both collectively and personally. The theme for April is about your potential, strengthening by identifying your gifts, talents, resources and finally making decisions to move forward. The Universe is supporting your evolution.
April 2018 energies reflect the symbolism of minor planet/comet Chiron now visiting our solar system. Such “Wise Healer” energy is encouraging us to overcome our lower nature and identify with our higher self. It’s important to connect with what feels “Real”. Take a breath, find your stillness and feel not think your way to the truth. Professional Energy Intuitive, Andrew Martin, suggests, “Follow the feelings and you will always find the clarity you seek.” Is it time to reinvent yourself? Where is the friction in your life right now?
The energy of the full moon in Scorpio on Sunday, April 29th, brings opportunity to embrace what empowers you and make some significant self-discovery, decisions or transformation. Identifying a new purpose can also trigger sadness or grief as we realize that what used to be no longer works for us. Perhaps what you value today is different. These feelings are also a great indicator of the need for change. The constellation Taurus invites you to cultivate your ideas and desires now. You must be the “gardener” for what you wish to manifest in your life.
Have the courage to embrace this full moon energy as a great opportunity for sorting out your resources –those that are tangible (ie. home, car, jewelry, etc.) and those that are intangible (relationships, job, friends, community, faith, etc.). Take time to make a list. This exercise may help reveal your greatest gifts, tools/talents or under-utilized resources. The April full moon provides the incentive you need to move forward to make positive changes in your life. This is what you came for!
