APPROACH April with a fresh vision, light heart and open mind. Spring is here and it is time to embrace the new.
This month begins with the full, eclipsed moon ruled by the sign of peace loving Libra.
This sign is reminding you to create balance, to notice where you are perhaps sacrificing your own needs or demanding too much from yourself and others. On this full moon day write a list of what you really need in all areas of your life, from health to wealth, in your work and relationships.
This will help you to prioritise so that you spend time and energy focused only on what you really need. This is different to what you want. For example you need to eat a healthy diet, but you want to eat chocolate. Once you start looking at the difference between your wants and needs you will become instantly clear about what is important to you.
Until April 20, the sun is ruled by the fiery sign of Aries.
Under the influence of this sign you will feel more courageous, confident and energised. Make bold steps forward and your willingness to try new avenues will be rewarded.
The new moon in Aries on April 18 will help you to forge a new pathway. As Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, your leadership skills may be needed so trust in your ability to guide others. April is the fourth month of the year, and in numerology the message of this number is to consider the foundations of your life. In order for new beginnings to take root, your foundations need to be firm.
So release from your daily routine now anything which may be taking up unnecessary energy. This is a great time to begin a new exercise regime to become more flexible, perhaps taking up swimming or yoga. The more flexible your body the more easily you will be able to navigate your way through the twists and turns of life. The fourth card in the Major Arcana Tarot deck is the Emperor.
Depicted as an authoritative figure, with the head of the ram either side of the throne, this card is encouraging you to be your own authority. Once you are clear about your own needs, and communicate this respectfully to others, you will feel more at peace.
As the sun moves into Taurus on April 20, your plans will find the ground they need to grow, flourish and bloom.
