FIRE and AIR dominate much of the month, bringing intensity, inspiration, and passion. As a start, the SUN in Aries through 4/19 creates the backdrop for April, as well as MERCURY's entry into the sign on the 4/11: I AM consciousness. The Fighter. The Survivor. Summoning the flames, wielding the torch, casting that which would threaten our Hearts, Minds, Bodies, Spirits back to the shadows. Pure, unadulterated Holy Flame, come to life through the Soul Spark that resides in each of us.
With CHIRON already in Aries through 2026, the passage of the Sun and Mercury through this sign bring incredible moments for healing core wounds and reclaiming our sovereignty amid fears that swirl in the time of COVID-19.
As George Washington said in the channeled message I shared in my last blog post, "You can - and you will - do this. You already know how."
A timely message, from a spirit who most certainly knows how to lead their troops not only to safety, but into entirely uncharted territory in birthing a nation against all odds.
Venus, Air Fuels Fire, and the Call to Unity, Community, and Innovation
What's more, Venus is OUT OF BOUNDS until 6/1, meaning that she's operating outside of the norm within the scope of all she represents. This bodes well for breakthroughs in communication (and using our intelligence to come out on top of COVID-19 together), engaging with society in ways we haven't done before. Breaking free from relationship constraints; artistic and creative breakthroughs; unique and unusual expression in fashion and personal aesthetics.
Between the influence of VENUS, MARS making its way through rebellious, ingenious AQUARIUS, and SATURN in Aquarius - and a SUPERMOON on 4/7 in LIBRA, a sign that Venus rules - Air is fueling Fire fiercely. Change, collaboration, and solidarity abounds, giving us an impassioned push to think on our feet and brainstorm creative solutions.
And thank goodness, for as the month goes on, many challenges await: navigating the flair of tempers as old wounds are triggered, facing fears, grief, vulnerability and ideas around mortality in ways that many in the Western world have not done before; collective trauma; feelings of limitation and "stuckness" as we continue to navigate a time when we might feel as if there's one foot on the gas, and another on the brake. One moment brings tremendous breakthroughs; another might bring feelings of defeat and despair.
But through it all, one thing remains: the wisdom and intelligence of the Soul, the tenacity of the human spirit, and the call to step into our power as sovereign beings to bring about a better world.
The Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction, Pluto Retrograde, and Incoming Earth Energies
This conjunction brings the strength of The Mountain, of old wisdom that resides in the bones of the Earth and indigenous traditions, including the wisdom and healing of plants, rocks, and gemstones; the need to tunnel deeper, deeper to find the riches buried below. It may be helpful to tune into the Telluric energy currents (Earth-based energies), your own Kundalini flow, or Dragon energy to tap your strength and potential, and tunnel to the heart of The Mountain to access gifts that lie waiting.
The events transpiring now will absolutely shape our generation, and events now in motion will shape our world well beyond that.
Physical abundance and prosperity will also manifest in unprecedented ways for those aligned with these energies, who set their Hearts and Minds to it. Putting in the ground-level effort, doing the inner work, and allowing the Highest Good to unfold by riding the wave of Source energy that streams through us - a surefire recipe for MIRACLES!
As PLUTO STATIONS RETROGRADE on 4/25, more overhauls are coming that take the lid off of what's been lying below that has kept us from stepping most fully into our power until now. Healing crises are not uncommon at this time, and can feel downright visceral and scary moving through them. But as someone who is quite Plutonian/Persephone in nature, I say this: there is nothing we cannot face and come out stronger, clearer, and more empowered for it. Collectively, we are The Phoenix Rising, and sometimes things must crumble so they can be rebuilt more solidly than ever.
The Sun moves into TAURUS on 4/19 and MERCURY follows suit on the 27th, bringing greater Earth energy and more initial stability. The TAURUS NEW MOON on the 22nd (Earth Day) brings challenge, as it’s conjunct URANUS and squaring SATURN/PALLAS ATHENA. But themes of radical change re: our relationship to wealth, resources, Mother Earth, sensuality, all things from the good, tilled earth are up for new beginnings, and new levels of personal grounding and stability are available to us if we align and do the work.
