April Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” Mark Twain
Happy April! We are now fully into the energies of Spring, and like many of you in different parts of the world, here in Seattle we’ve gone through some extreme weather--from a “snow apocalypse” to temperatures of almost 70 degrees! This is not the format to discuss climate change, but more an analogy of how we need to stay attuned to the changing vibrations of our “energetic weather”, collectively and individually. To be willing to reinvent ourselves and let go of preconceived expectations and timelines in each moment.
This month, we reemerge from the watery, hazy-dazy landscape of March, most notably the Mercury Retrograde in Pisces. Now it’s time to regroup and reset your compass towards what you want to achieve next! It’s important to embrace a two-steps-forward, one-wee-step-backwards approach to work with the current planetary energies. Or in other words--Divine Right Timing. All the better to align you with your best potentials. Be patient. Act when the time is right. Breathe. Believe!
Your April Horoscope:
Aries: What’s on your mind, Aries? Your stars are bringing new awareness to the expansive power of your thoughts and ideas. This month is an opportune time to express those ideas, and have them recognized! However, if others don’t immediately embrace them, this is not a moment to force your opinion. What’s important is that you honor your truth and stick with your intentions. The world may need a little time to wrap their brains around your #GrandSchemes
Taurus: Hey, Taurus, are you making time to take good care of yourself? I ask because this month, your stars are focused on health and wellness—the whole self-care enchilada—body, mind and spirit (beans and cheese optional!). You’ve been working hard, and may need to balance your ambitions with some time for yourself. If you’re worried about the financials, don’t. Know that by valuing your wellbeing and what you bring to the table, others will follow. #TimeOut
Gemini: Oh what a difference a month brings! Whereas your March stars were about tempered movement, this month its full—Go Dog Go--mode! With feisty, warrior planet Mars in your sign, the celestial gates are opening wide, bringing momentum to getting things done, and realizing some long-awaited potentials. So what are you waiting for? Any hesitation comes from not believing in yourself. You’ve got the goods, now it’s time to deliver. #BadaBingBadaBoom
Cancer: With the New and Full Moons illuminating your houses of career and home (respectively), you are seeking a balance between the two. This has been a reoccurring theme of late—so dear astrologer, some new insight, please! Your secret weapon now is your dreamscape—which is very natural and rich territory for you. By exploring your dreams and imaginations, you will discover yourself in new ways, bringing more balance to your life equation. #FindingNeverland
Leo: Cosmic Pop-Up Quiz! Don’t over-think it, just give your first answer to the following question: “Who are the three people who inspire you the most?” This quiz comes courtesy of forward-moving Mars visiting your house of higher inspiration. This is a time to expand your vision of how you can make a difference in the world. You are seeking more of a leaderships role, and even becoming a change-agent. If you’re feeling wobbly, just ask: #WhatWouldOphraDo?
Virgo: You’re probably just feeling relieved to come through last month’s Mercury Retrograde in one, sane piece. It was a doozy, for sure! Now, as the dust settles, this is a time to integrate your experiences and regroup. The question lies: “What did you learn?” I don’t mean this in a heavy handed way, more that you have gained a whole bunch of good intel about works for you, and what doesn’t. Embrace your new perspective and let it guide you forward. #TeachingMoments
Libra: April is a full-circle moment, namely because the Full Moon in your sign (April 19th), was also the Full Moon in your sign last month! This is a powerful time to reflect on what has transpired for you over the last month. I have the feeling that much has changed, especially in bringing closure to situations and relationships that no longer serve. At the same time, it has also opened you to welcoming friendships that celebrate a bigger you! #HappyEndings
Scorpio: What you resist, persists! True words, as your stars encourage you to dig in and resolve unfinished business that is standing in your way to living a more authentic life. This may come through relationships, business situations, family affairs, or within your own sense of self. This could be uncomfortable territory, as you revisit old wounds that need to be healed. Yet, it is all a part of liberating you to experience what’s truly possible. #Freedom
Sagittarius: With your ruling planet, Jupiter, in your sign, beginning its retrograde movement (through August 11th), you may be thinking: “Wait! I was just starting to get my groove on!” Your groove and momentum is not going anywhere, it’s just deepening. As in allowing new spurts of cosmic inspiration and synchronicity to come through that you haven’t been aware of before. Let go of any perceived notions about how it’s supposed to be. Be open and #Surrender
Capricorn: If you’ve been feeling under-valued for your gifts and what you bring to the table, this month is a time to step back and regroup. Tough love moment—if you want others to know your worth, you must first find it within yourself. Perhaps it’s time to consider whether your bar for yourself has been too high. This is not to say that you need to let go of your higher standards, its more about letting go of the need for perfection. You are more than: #GoodEnough
Aquarius: Are you a gambler, Aquarius? The reason I ask is because fiery, forward-moving Mars is visiting your House of Creativity, Romance, and yes, Gambling this month. So whether it’s taking a chance in your creative expressions, a new romance or life in general, this is time to spin the roulette wheel and see where it lands. It’s not about outcomes, but your willingness to play in the field of potential opportunities. As they say, no risk, no gain. #WheelOfFortune
Pisces: Remember that moment, at the end of the Wizard of Oz, when Glenda the Good Witch reminds Dorothy that what she has been seeking all along is, home? Well, tap your ruby slippers together, because after all your crazy adventures in Oz of late, April is a time where there is no place like home! This may mean coming home to yourself, with another, or seeking space where you feel safe, happy and secure. You are looking for your sweet #NestingPlace
