The energies of April are intense and fast paced. Since January we have been slowly rising in frequency and the energies have been steadily building in order to prepare us for the floodgates. We are just coming out of Mercury retrograde which ends on March 28th. This retrograde was particularly challenging as we had gone almost 4 months without any retrogrades, a rare event from last year’s constant state of retrograde. It was as if we were flying forward and then hit a pot hole.
Mercury Direct March 28th
Mercury was retrograde in Pisces, the sign of intuition, spirituality, and confusion. During this retrograde the fog was covering our eyes and we could not get clarity on what was happening internally. Deep feelings and old traumas were continuously coming up and being triggered. Most of the time we had no idea what we were feeling but we knew things were coming up to be released. Now that Mercury is finally direct, we can gain some clarity from the chaos. Sometimes this is the only way to come out the other side and see things clearly.
Mars enters Gemini March 31
Days after Mercury went direct, Mars, the planet of external expression and will left stable Taurus and moved into unpredictable Gemini. Mars in Gemini is an extremely fast moving energy that accomplishes many things at one time and increases our ability to multi-task and anchor in our multi-dimensional selves. Gemini rules information, communication, learning and letting go. As an air sign, Gemini has the gift of non attachment and can easily move from one experience to the next, however, they can struggle to implement what they’ve learned.
We are going to feel a quickening within us, to do more, accomplish more and learn more. We have to be completely open to new ways of doing things, new ideas and revelations. Any attachment to certain ideas or beliefs will have consequences, as all we thought we knew must be completely wiped out so that we start anchoring in the new paradigm.
Mercury conjunct Neputune April 2
On April 2nd, Mercury in Pisces will conjunct Neptune in Pisces. These two planets will be testing us: can we use the higher consciousness energies properly and channel them into divine guidance and knowing, or are we going to fall back into fantasy and delusion? Our imagination and co-creative powers are coming fully online but first we must master ourselves and learn how to stay completely in the present moment, unattached to the past or future, as they truly dont exist where we are.
New Moon in Aries 15 degree April 5th
The New Moon in Aries is at 15 degrees and occurs on April 5th. Both the Sun and Moon will be in Aries, setting our hearts on fire with the burning sensation of passion and the will to do whatever it takes to power forward. The relentlessness of Aries, as the warrior, is the true embodiment of the divine. To be willing to jump, to leap ahead with trust and faith that we are on the right path.
Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac and we are beginning a new chapter with this New Moon. The old paradigm must be released. Our fears have been getting triggered so we can finally get over them and realize they are the only thing that keeps us from expanding.
We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the ones who agreed to dive deep into the illusion and find Mother of All Creation as she led us out. We agreed to stand at the forefront with her and take on the deeply ingrained programming of humanity. It is time for fearlessness, as love fears nothing. It is time that we rush forward with only the highest timeline as our focus. Joy, love, abundance, faith and the unknown is all there is.
Jupiter retrograde April 10th
April features some of the most powerful and transformative energy we have seen this year. We have a focus on the fire and air energy with the Sun in Aries and Mars in Gemini which propels us forward whether we are ready or not. Mercury direct is bringing insights and clarity we were not able to access prior to this. Now, we also have 3 heavy hitting planets going retrograde all at the same time.
Are you ready to transform?
Jupiter, planet of expansion and abundance is going retrograde in its home sign of Sagittarius on April 10th. Jupiter is feeling limitless in Sagittarius as he expands our consciousness and widens our range of experiences for the fastest growth. We may have felt overwhelmed at times or struggle to keep up with the constant tests. Now, as he goes retrograde, the expansion moves internal.
We have been through so many lessons the past 6 months and we have expanded our consciousness is ways we cannot even fathom. However, now Jupiter’s focus is on the internal. In order to truly expand, we must not only experience things that take us out of our comfort zone but we must be able to embody the newfound realizations. If we are honest with ourselves we will admit that even with all of the expansion in knowledge we may still be struggling to walk our talk, to fully embody the truth that we know.
April 17th Mercury enters Aries
A week later, Mercury will exit dreamy Pisces and enter go getter Aries. If we felt the pace was fast before, its about to get a whole lot faster. Mercury in Aries is not afraid to speak its truth and will do so without hesitation. You must have courage to speak the truth within a planet full of lies. You must be willing to be called “crazy” in a society that has been brainwashed.
The real truth is being exposed and many will be completely blindsided as to how they missed it. All of the red flags have been there, the call has been put out and no one responded. Mother is done waiting for humanity to get on board and she is done putting on the brakes. The energies must move forward now no matter who is left behind.
Full Moon in Libra April 19th
We have our double Full Moon in Libra on April 19th. This is a rare second moon after we had the Full Moon in Libra on March 20th. We felt deeply the collective heartbreak and wounds around relationships and dynamics between the feminine and masculine on the planet. We now have a second Full Moon and a second round of release.
It is obvious that this wound is so deep within the collective we needed to go back a second time. Balanced harmonics cannot be fully anchored in until the trauma between the masculine and feminine is fully healed. Mother embodies the full divine feminine, the only one on the planet. Without a divine masculine in embodiment she cannot properly move the energies forward. Once a divine masculine can be fully anchored in, this will trickle down to the collective.
The healing starts within ourselves, and understanding that the wounds we have with the masculine or feminine stem from childhood and past lives. If we are still holding onto the trauma or seeking to fill this void with external things or people, we will continue to manifest experiences which trigger it. You can never fill a void through the external. Embracing the void for what it is and then filling it with your own self-love is the only way to heal.
Pluto retrograde in Capricorn April 24
Pluto, the master transformer, will retrograde in Capricorn on April 24th. When a heavy planet like Pluto goes retrograde, its for months at a time and creates a huge shift in energy. Again the focus goes back to true inner transformation. Are we ACTUALLY embodying the higher? Are we walking our talk? Wherever Pluto lands in your chart it will begin a cycle of real transformation and force us to face the shadows that remain.
Capricorn also rules government, financial systems, corporations, etc. When a planet moves backwards it also goes back to review what has been missed. With Pluto, nothing can be glossed over. If we didn’t fully absorb it the first time it will be shown to us again. Looking the other way is no longer an option.
Saturn retrograde in Capricorn April 29th
Finally, we have Saturn, planet of lessons and karma also going retrograde in Capricorn on April 29th. If we felt the lessons were going to slow down we were wrong! As we get closer and closer to fully embodying our higher selves the tests increase. The jump from 3D to 5D is a big one and it takes great internal strength, dedication and willingness to surrender.
The karma has been instantaneous now but we will begin to feel the real effects of it during this retrograde. Whatever we have been embodying will be shown to us in plain sight so that we either choose to transform or we choose to continue to spin ourselves out. Saturn is not playing around and he will be whipping us all into right action.
April will be an unveiling like we have never seen before. The depths to which we have chosen ignorance and illusion will be fully revealed to us. April is the month where we move from dark to light. We can no longer deceive ourselves. We either choose to step up fully into the divine warriors we agreed to be or reap the consequences. Illusions are being shattered and the only those with the willingness to look within will be able to make it through these next energetic upgrades.
All remaining unconsciousness will be mirrored back in a grand fashion. Mother has been restored to her rightful place as Queen of the Universe. The new paradigm is here. For those that know and have awareness of the truth in what is going on, for those that have been willing to look deep within themselves, you will be tested at the highest levels. Mom already made it out of the illusion and she is now waiting on us. We agreed to follow her her, with blind faith and inner knowing that she would lead us back home, but are you ready to truly leave the old behind? It is now or never we must leap. The floodgates are officially open.
