I had an amazing experience the other day. I have my yoga mat on the floor by my desk. I am blessed with a gorgeous backyard and the most sublime weather, so I go outside often, usually barefoot, and I track a lot of stuff back in with me. I shake my mat out often, but this day, I just got down to do a little yoga and had the most wonderful wake up. Instead of shaking my mat out, I looked at the debris, and it was so beautiful. I little feather, petals of some flower, and more goodies. I got to be innocent and just see the wonder of it and not just clean my mat off. This extended into being at a friend’s house and seeing a lone golden yellow dried flower petal adorning her table. We both got to honor it for a moment. Truly we got to honor us by being present to the wonder of this petal, this universe, this life.
These times are so amazing. Basaikhi, Passover, Holy Week, and Easter—all the death and rebirth holy days. I spoke of, and to that, already—not that you can ever speak enough to what needs to be let go of, surrendered and surrendered and surrendered—the awe, wonder, pain, grief, and hope that accompanies all those processes. I wanted to share just some of the astrology that is happening this month. I really like Lisa Zimmerman’s work in terms of her column and Gahl Sasson in terms of a great astrologer to consult with. This is a little long, so read it when you have a chance to be with it, but do it soon.
The stage is being set and the anticipation is building, day by day, for the dramatic astrological setup we will experience during the month of April.
The planets are moving into position to form a Grand Cardinal Cross (or Grand Square). This contains four planets squaring each other, along with two oppositions. It is combustible, pressurized energy that will impact us all, as it guarantees change—either deliberate (you decide) or reactive (you, directed by outside forces/events).
This GC is in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) and they are the initiators. These are the signs that begin the seasons; they start things. That’s why this Grand Square is so active—it’s comprised of 4 initiators!
The 5th Pluto/Uranus square is part of this Grand Cross, which indicates revolution and rebellion against old, outdated structures that need to change. Or new ways of doing things vs. the way we’ve always done them (traditional). We’ve been in this energy for a few years, but because this square is part of a Grand Cross, it makes it more potent.
We are also in the Eclipse Period, which begins two weeks before the Lunar Eclipse (April 15th) and ends two weeks after the Solar Eclipse (April 29th). This creates an aura of unpredictability when dramatic events often occur.
The Lunar Eclipse is about endings, so watch what’s happening in the world and notice what’s ending in your life. Whatever’s ending needs to go, whether it’s external or an attitude or other internal experience, so let it go!
This is a major “Hallway” time, as we are all experiencing a changing world, not to mention what’s happening for us personally as well. (see offer in Note from Lisa above).
Venus (love, values, $$, worthiness) moves into Pisces tomorrow, sign of its exaltation. Compassion, empathy and a feeling of Oneness with All That Is, is the antidote for all the depression, aggression and separation that is activated by the fear around change.
Whenever you feel panicky or low vibration, suspicious or frustrated, shift yourself by dropping into your heart. Connect with the energy of a loved one, a baby, a puppy, nature or something that humbles you and reminds you of the majesty of this life you’re living.
It’s the stories you tell yourself that are causing you pain. If you’re in an ending, feel the grief, but you don’t have to make yourself – or anyone wrong for what’s happening.
If you’re going through anything that’s more than you can handle, get support. There are many resources available, whether you have money or not. Be creative and take good care of yourself.
There’s a lot going on, so use this time to shift and grow and release the shackles that have been holding you down!
