If I could give you one piece of advice this month, it would be to make your April mantra “I’m cheerful!” That’s actually your natural state most of the time, but right now with Mars in your Love Zone, you could be less cheerful and more aggressive. Doesn’t suit you! Clear any upsets but do it with … good cheer.
April should be a month when we can all start to settle down a bit after a hectic time. If you’re one of the people that’s been on a complete roller coaster of late then chances are you were feeling one or all three of these:
– The recent move of Uranus into Taurus
– The intense Full Moon we just had
– The just as or even more intense Mercury retrograde
And this month? Honestly, it looks calmer. So breathe.
Here is a run-down of the major headlines and info about how they affect you (remember to read your Rising Sign if you know it!)
I am big one for focusing on the positive but forewarned is forearmed, right? So here are the days which are going to be more challenging for most of us.
April 2 – could be confusing
April 10 – lot of weirdness, bossiness, possible deception – keep your eyes open!
April 12 – easy to say to much
April 13 – power struggles ahoy
April 23 – could go either way
April 27 – a day to take it easy if you can
As you can see, the first part of the month is going to be a bit more up and down than the second half. However overall, it really is fair to say that we are getting some celestial breathing space to process to the past few weeks and months. Use it wisely by developing a daily yoga, meditation and devotional practise.
Obviously everyone has their own idea of the best way to live. I can only offer you ideas about what works for me. If you are not interested, just scroll down for more astrology!
I am no yoga bunny, believe me. But I know some really basic yoga moves and have been doing them on and off for more than a decade. The more I read about yoga, the more I see why it’s so amazing. For example, it basically aligns the body energy centres. This isn’t a passport to a perfect life – I always remember my late psychiatrist dad telling me that one of his patients ran a massive yoga school (he gave no more details – his point was that yoga isn’t the answer to EVERYTHING). However it really does help to align yourself and your chakras. My current favourite morning practise is just 5 minutes long and here.
Meditation is one of the most awesome things ever, end of story. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s time to get with the program. There is a reason why it’s so powerful! I recently interviewed a man called William Bloom on my Hay House radio show here He is considered by many to be one of the leading meditation teachers in the world. Mr Bloom basically says that any meditation is a good meditation, whether you use a mantra, your visualise, your work on your chakras or anything else. He says the too most important things are that your body is at ease and you’re silent and awake. And then just breathe. Give it a go this month. When life is tempestuous, it’s harder to find the time to meditate… this month should be easier. Relatively!
Of the 3 things I am suggesting here, this is probably the most controversial. After all, I am an astrologer – who am I to suggest spiritual practises? Well, no one really however Neptune, the planet of spirituality is in the sign of spirituality, Pisces, now and for the next few yeaers, so there’s a perfect spiritual storm right there. Moreover, 2019 sees lots of Saturn (learning)/Neptune (mysteries) links so it’s the perfect time to be learning about life beyond 3D. Moreover, Saturn is about discipline, as well, so it’s a year to discipline yourself into a spiritual routine, if that is something you feel you would benefit from. My teacher in India recommends at least 10 minutes a day spent lighting a candle, being grateful and maybe doing some chanting (or do your meditation).
What will happen if you do all this? Well, based on my experience, your life will change.
Every time I get it all done, I see amazing changes happening. This is not the point of doing it but it really helps. So what is the point? I don’t think anyone really know but it could be to do with the fact that we are all magical, Divine creatures and so a little practise like this helps us to connect to our Divine self, with the power to create and bring joy into the world.
For one thing, we are finally out of Mercury retrograde. Many people wrote to me last month to say how brutal the Mercury retrograde was. And it was! I agree! Normally I wouldn’t use such a word to describe Mercury retrograde but I think that added to the Uranus energies added to the Full Moon, which all took place around the same time, made life intense! So as Mercury now start to move out of the echo phase and resume normal transmission, here’s what it all means for you.
After the retrograde, communications planet Mercury is now resuming normal transmission and going forwards again… So life should be about to make more sense. For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your FOURTH HOUSE of home, family and domestics. For some this has been about going back to somewhere you used to call home. For others, if life at home has been chaotic beyond belief, now you know why! Misunderstandings with your live-in love, spouse or flatmates should ease up. Even your parents will start to understand you better. This weekend, though, as Mercury actually changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem. And after that? Your home life and family is still going to be taking up a lot of your headspace but there’s going to be a lot less confusion and upset.
I’m glad you asked! If you’re a magical person and you like to create as much as you can about your life, then the Moon is the celestial sphere to tune into. The Moon’s frequency is what allows us to manifest our dreams. And guess what the Moon is all about in astrology? Our feelings!
If you know anything about manifesting, you will know that we manifest not with our thoughts but our feelings, right? So how are you feeling? The most important thing is to feel all our feelings because otherwise, if we stuff them down, they can turn toxic. And this month offers us the chance to feel our feeling without them going out of control, since the energies are less intense. The 3 practises I mentioned above will also really help to level our your feelings.
5 April 2019 – New Moon in Aries
12 April 2019 – First Quarter Moon in Cancer
19 April 2019 – Full Moon in Libra
26 April 2019 – Third Quarter Moon in Aquarius
April is the idea time to commit to working with the magical Moon for 12 months. Why?
Because April brings the New Moon in Aries, which as you might know, is the first sign of the zodiac.
If you’re one of the thousands of even millions of women around the world who has rediscovered the power of connecting with the Moon, then use this month as a starting point for your Moon “work” in the coming 12 months.
That means taking time each month to tune into the New Moon, setting your intentions, and then using the Full Moon to release any tensions.
What does that look like? At the very least it means taking time out at New and Full Moon.
At New Moon set your intentions and at Full Moon, surrender to the Divine.
Welcome to the House of Fun! Have you been having a bit of that lately? If not, then the skies are strongly suggesting to you that it’s time to get out and do a little bit of what you fancy! There’s a new start possible for you now re romance, creativity and kids, as the New Moon takes place this month. Could you use a restart re re romance, creativity and kids? Identify which one(s) you want to work on and draw up an action plan. What could you do to inch closer to what you want? Remember, the law of attraction means we can’t get what we want until we know what we want.
Everyone loves the New Moon because it’s a chance to start all over again and this month’s New Moon is no exception.
The month’s New Moon is clashing with Saturn though, so watch out. If you feel restricted, talk things through. If you feel like life is sending you tons of lessons, you might be right; learn them and move on. If you know you’re being too hard on someone, have a word with yourself.
As well, use the Saturn energy of the New Moon to break through any limiting beliefs you have about getting whatever it is that you want in life. Dig deeper and remember that you are worth it!
The funny thing is that the longer I work with the New and Full Moon (and I’ve done it for 20 years already) the more I start to love the Full Moon. Yes, sure, the New Moon is awesome for manifesting but the Full Moon is all about miracles that come when we surrender and that is in its own way even more fascinating, not to mention liberating.
So what does it mean to surrender? It means that we accept that sometimes life/God/Goddess/the Universe has a better idea about what we need that we do. And so at the time of the Full Moon (or anytime you’re manifesting) surrender it all to the Divine. I truly believe from experience that surrender works magic. Maybe it’s because we detach from our desired outcome a little and in doing so, we allow space for our dream to come true.
So this month, surrender!
FYI this is the SECOND Full Moon in Libra in a row. So what does it mean to have two Libra Full Moons in a row?
The Full Moon in Libra is very much about relationships; in particular it’s about the give and take which is needed in all relationships. When we get two in a row, we get two chances in a row to work on balancing out the energies in our most important relationships.
If there is a big relationship issue between you and your beloved or ex, you are getting twice the chances to sort things out. Similarly, Libra is about all partnerships, including business partnerships, so if you have a partnership that’s a bit volatile at the moment, tread carefully. Emotions could be hot!
Every Full Moon lights up one part or other of your chart – here’s what this one is doing…
As the Full Moon takes place in your 11th house, it’s time to look at the things you’ve been hoping and wishing for. Either it’s going to become clear how you can make it happen or it might be about to become clear that it’s a pipedream you’d do best to move on from. As well, while the past few weeks have almost certainly been about you, the fun you can have, your romantic life, your self-expression, a child you’ve been indulging and/or a creative project you’ve had on the boil – but the skies now suggest that you think less about that and more about if you are carrying your weight where the groups you belong to are concerned.
One part of your chart is a real hotspot this month. Why? Because we have the New Moon there and the planet of communications Mercury will be in there and the planet of love and abundance, Venus, will be too.
And this part of your chart is? Wherever you have Aries in your chart. And before you say “But I don’t have Aries in my chart!” well, you actually do. We all have 12 signs in our chart, ruling different parts of our lives. Here is where Aries if for you (remember you read your Rising Sign if you know it – you will get a more accurate reading!) Wherever it is for you is where you can expect d-e-v-e-l-o-p-m-e-n-t-s!
Aries – so Aries is all about you, your whole life, your appearance and how you come across
Taurus – Aries is your 12th House so it’s all about what scares you! And your spiritual life.
Gemini – Aries rules your 11th House, which is all about friends and your social circles.
Moonchild – it’s all about your 10th House – your career and ambitions
Leo – your 9th House which is all about travel, study, teaching, learning and the Cosmic Quest
Virgo – it’s your 8th House so expect matters to do with sex and money to come up
Libra – guess what? it’s your 7th House aka your Love Zone
Scorpio – it’s your 6th House so all to do with your daily life and health routines
Sagittarius – your 5th House so all to do with fun, romance, flirting, kids, creativity
Capricorn – your 4th House so all to do with developments re home and family
Aquarius – it’s your 3rd House so it’s about the way you think and express yourself
Pisces – it’s your 2nd House which is all about cash, property and possessions
Mercury, as already discussed, is actually in a slightly weird state at the start of April, moving from having been going backwards, to stalling to slowly but surely starting to pick up speed after the recent retrograde.
So let’s about Venus in the part of your chart mentioned above… what does it mean for you once Venus moves into Aries in the second half of April?
Fun-loving Venus is now moving through your fifth house of fun. And if you think that sounds like a good double whammy, you’re right. There nothing that the planet of pleasure, Venus, likes more than enjoying herself. And as she goes through your House Of Fun, having a good time is her Number 1 Mission. And it can be yours, too. Live a little, as they say! If you needed some kind of excuse to stop worrying and start indulging, you have it; Venus in this part of your chart means you are almost duty-bound to work less and to spoil and amuse yourself more. This Venus cycle is also good news for singles looking to meet someone, because your fifth house rules romance – of the light-hearted variety. Certainly, if there were ever a time to get out there and shimmy your shui, this is that time. Couples don’t miss out, either. If you don’t find some of the old romance seeping back into your relationship over the next four weeks, it might be time to start talking to each other about your romantic expectations. Romance each other. This transit is also excellent for anyone with issues connected to children (your own or someone else’s). Any child-related issues should be more easily negotiated and resolved. Good news really is possible. Ditto if you are working on an artistic or creative project. Your ability should be extra high – now all you need to do is discipline yourself to harness your extra creative ability!
For the record, there are only 4 hot Venus dates this month – they are:
9 April 2019 – ahead of Venus’ meeting with Neptune, it’s dreamy and romantic.
15 April 2019 – there is lots of love in the air but don’t smother your partner!
20 April 2019 – Venus moves into Aries and love speeds up
22 April 2019 – just before Venus meets Chiron – it’s a healing time for love
