April Forecast

April Forecast

Hello April!

We jump straight into April with Mercury retrograde in Aries which falls on Monday April 1st (April fools day), then the following Monday we have the new Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries , continuing our Eclipse season energy from mid March (although eclipse energy lasts 6 months). Mercury retrograde is in the Eclipse window which intensifies the energy of the retrograde, so be extremely mindful of communication and misunderstandings. This is asking for us to be patient and understanding with ourselves and others, and speak our authentic truth (which is always from the heart center). April is all about big changes and welcoming in a new era and is a power packed month ahead!

Lets recap: On February 19th we began the alignment between Chiron (the wounded healer) and the North Node of destiny which was a call to heal wounds that affect humanity supporting the ideology of connection and that we are all connected. Also another significant alignment The North Node in Aries and the South Node is in Libra for the entire year. This brings a journey of self-discovery while balancing independence and relationships. Any relationships that do not have a healthy foundation will be challenged in order to create room for either healthy growth or letting go in a healthy way. 


North Node in Aries nudges us to embrace independence, courage, and take initiative in our lives to live harmoniously.The South.Node in Libra (Lunar eclipse in March was also in Libra and the south node represents lessons you came to learn and what you came to clear and gain wisdom from), suggests letting go of over dependence on others and things outside of us and finding balance in relationships without losing our own identity. This lunar axis teaches us to stay in alignment and to be able to maintain harmony within the relationships in our lives. 

Chiron remains in the sign of Aries until 2027 and continues to guide us to be inspired through healing and learning the lessons we have come to learn. Chiron is referred to as the "wounded healer" and symbolizes the areas of our lives where we have experienced pain and vulnerability but also where we can find profound healing and wisdom. Chiron's influence can bring attention to our wounds, both physical and emotional, and how we can work towards healing and integration. The North Node represents the path of growth and development in our life and highlights the qualities and experiences we are encouraged to embrace for personal evolution. Let go of the past completely through allowing yourself to heal and be present in who you are in this moment rather than allowing your past hurts and experiences to define you. We become “attached” to our suffering and tend to seek out validation to support us continuing to  carry our trauma, triggers and past experiences through our unhealed ego/shadow/inner. North Node specifically points towards the collective growth and evolution of humanity in alignment with their true path anchored in a unity. This alignment encourages individuals to integrate their wounds into their spiritual journey and recognize the value of personal challenges, using them as tools for growth while developing a deeper innerstanding of practicing compassion for self and others. April 8th Solar Eclipse intensifies this alignment amplifying the energies and infusing the healing vibration into whatever the eclipse brings to light. This will be substantial in leading us down paths for our overall well-being and highest good as we have done the inner work with the energy of the wounded healer. As this transit continues through Spring eclipse season it may bring certain unfolding events into full culmination. This karmic purging was and has been necessary in order to reach our Souls potential and helps us connect to our authentic self and become unshakable in who we are in our alignment. Encouraging an anchored sense of worthiness in our authentic individuality and ability to validate ourselves without seeking validation outside of us. Knowing we are all born deserving love and have the inner knowing how to heal ourselves. Overall our Divine purpose is to BE happy, to come home to our inner light and be part of a collective anchored in love.  

April 1st 

Mercury Retrograde in Aries: April 1st – 25th, 2024

We began to feel the retrograde energy the last week of March due to the shadow period of the retrograde. Mercury retrograde aspects encourage  a time to slow down, reflect, reassess and review on various aspects of our lives. April Mercury retrograde  may be particularly focused on matters related to personal identity, self-expression, and individual goals, as Mercury retrograde occurs in Aries (accompanied by the Solar Eclipse energy April 8th), a sign associated with self-awareness, relationships, justice and personal growth. A feeling of reevaluating our intentions and motivations, a time to review whether our actions align with our deeper values and spiritual path, and if adjustments are needed to realign ourselves. 

Mercury retrograde in Aries may bring attention to how we communicate and connect with others and is an opportunity to practice mindful communication, listening with empathy, and fostering deeper connections based on authenticity and mutual understanding. Mercury retrograde invites us to embrace the spiritual lessons of introspection, reevaluation, and mindful communication, guiding us towards deeper self-awareness, connection, and growth on our spiritual journey.

When Mercury retrograde occurs in Aries, the energetic and assertive qualities of Aries can influence how the retrograde is experienced. Aries is a fire sign known for its boldness, independence, and pioneering spirit. During a Mercury retrograde in Aries, there may be a heightened sense of impulsiveness, impatience, and assertiveness in communication and decision-making processes. It's important to remember it is a time for introspection and reassessment of our desires, goals, and actions and a period where we take time to review plans and projects, being mindful and reconsidering communication styles, in order to reflect on how to  assert ourselves in healthy ways in various areas of life.

April 2nd

The aspect of the Moon in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus brings a harmonious flow of energy between the emotional realm (Moon) and the realm of innovation and change (Uranus). With the Moon in Capricorn, there's an emphasis on emotional stability  and a grounded energy to the  life you are creating. Uranus in Taurus encourages innovation, change, and unconventional thinking, particularly in areas related to finance, resources, and security. The trine aspect between the Moon and Uranus suggests that these innovative ideas and approaches can be integrated smoothly and effortlessly into our emotional landscape, fostering adaptability and creativity. This creates a sense of a need to break free from old patterns and routines that no longer serve us, particularly in areas where we've felt stuck or stagnant. It's a time to embrace change and explore new ways of expressing ourselves and meeting and fulfilling our emotional needs.

April 3rd

The conjunction of Venus and Neptune in Pisces brings in an energy based in enhanced sensitivity as  Venus represents love, beauty, and values, while Neptune is associated with spirituality, dreams, and illusions. When these two planets align in a conjunction, their energies combine and amplify, creating a heightened sense of sensitivity, empathy, and idealism. This conjunction can inspire romantic idealism, artistic expression, and a deep appreciation for beauty and harmony. It may also bring a sense of compassion, forgiveness, and unconditional love in relationships, as Neptune's influence softens Venusian qualities. Neptune's influence encourages imagination, creativity, and a connection to the mystical and ethereal realms  fostering a flow of inspiration and a desire to express emotions in a transcendent way. This  is highly spiritual, fostering a sense of spiritual awakening, connection to higher realms, and a deepening of intuition, which adds to our ascension energy already flooding our human experience. It encourages us to explore our spiritual beliefs, connect with the divine, and seek greater meaning and purpose in life while  emphasizing the frequency of unconditional love, compassion, and unity. It invites us to dissolve boundaries, let go of judgments, and embrace a more inclusive and empathetic perspective towards ourselves and others, aligning us in the higher frequency of 5D. This also fosters a time of dream work, intuitive development, and accessing insights from the unconscious, supporting a time of deeper introspection, inner healing, and tapping into the wisdom of the higher realms for guidance and inspiration.

April 5th Venus enters Aries 

Aries is a fire sign known for its passion, energy, and assertiveness while Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and harmony, takes on a more dynamic and proactive energy in Aries. This transit inspires us to pursue our desires with confidence, take initiative in relationships, and express ourselves passionately and creatively. Aries encourages independence and a willingness to follow our inner knowing and when Venus is in Aries, there may be feelings of desire for excitement, new experiences, and a sense of adventure in matters of love, creativity, and personal expression. With Aries being associated with self-discovery, self-expression, and individuality and when Venus transits Aries, there's an opportunity for spiritual growth through exploring our authentic desires, passions, and values. It's a time to connect with our inner fire and tap into our creative infinite potential. Venus in Aries encourages us to embrace love with courage and authenticity and expressing love fearlessly, being true to ourselves in relationships, and honoring our own needs and desires while respecting those of others. During this transit, we may find ourselves inspired to pursue new artistic projects, hobbies, or ways of self-expression that reflect our inner passions, personal growth, exploration, strengths and connecting with the fire within us to pursue our heart's desires with courage, enthusiasm and trust.


April 8th New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries (Monday 2:21 pm EST) conjunction of the Moon and Mercury in Aries

This Eclipse is a BIG topic of discussion for many and there are many different perspectives. The overall message from my Spirit team for this eclipse is that  it is a time of great expansion and self alignment with our inner Source and a time to expand our minds in order to incorporate the limitlessness of our BEing.  Finding our true balance in being human and Source, as we project our human experiences through our LIVING life, and to  stay away from fear based perspects or the 3d in trying to control through fear. Align yourself with what resonates for you without fear and take time to tap into your authentic power. 

This Eclipse brings in high energy especially with Mercury retrograde in the mix along with other energetic influences like the high influx of Solar activity (solar flares, CME’s, solar winds, schumann resonance etc) as well as  planetary alignments. The Moon represents our emotions and inner world, while Mercury governs communication and intellect. The Sun represents our sense of self and our identity, while Aries fosters a sense of clarity of thought and expression. When these two come together in Aries, a fiery and assertive sign, there's a strong emphasis on expressing our emotions directly and assertively. This aspect can amplify our need to communicate our feelings and desires with courage and confidence. Aries is known for clarity and decisiveness, and when Mercury, the planet of the mind, aligns with the Moon in Aries, it can enhance our mental clarity and decisiveness. This aspect may facilitate clear, direct communication and decisive action, particularly in matters that are emotionally significant to us. 

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is associated with initiation, leadership, and new beginnings and with the conjunction of the Moon and Mercury in Aries this inspires us to take the initiative in expressing our thoughts and feelings, as well as in initiating new projects or ventures that align with our emotional needs and desires. While the Aries energy can be invigorating and empowering, it can also be impulsive and prone to emotional reactivity. During this conjunction, there's a need to be mindful of impulsivity in communication and emotional reactions and it is important to harness the fiery energy of Aries in constructive, positive and supportive ways and avoid unnecessary conflicts, confrontations or reactiveness. This conjunction of the Moon and Mercury in Aries encourages us to express our authentic selves with courage, confidence and conviction as a time to speak our authentic truth, maintain our healthy boundaries, and align our actions with our inner values, compassion and mindfulness. 

Aries is associated with the physical body and vitality, and this conjunction can highlight the mind-body connection, which has also been a theme for the past few weeks. This aspect invites us to pay attention to the signals of our body, thoughts and emotions in order to use them as guides in our spiritual journey. It also brings opportunities for emotional healing and self-discovery/self-remembrance, through courageously and confidently exploring our emotions and communicating our innermost thoughts, so we can gain greater insight into ourselves and experience profound spiritual growth and evolution.

Solar eclipses are powerful New Moons that mark significant beginnings and endings. In Aries and being the first sign of the zodiac, there's a strong emphasis on initiating new cycles, asserting independence, and taking bold steps forward. This eclipse can bring opportunities for personal reinvention, setting new intentions, and embarking on courageous ventures. During this Solar Eclipse, there may be a heightened drive to take action, assert our individuality, and pursue our goals with determination. It's a time to embrace our inner warrior and fearlessly align our passions and ambitions, especially with Aries governing the self and personal identity. A time of breaking free from all limiting beliefs, outdated patterns, nudging and encouraging us to see where we haven’t been true to our authentic selves and understanding that changes or endings are necessary for our own growth, and that we can choose to see the deeper meanings. 

This is a good time for focusing on some of the positive traits of Aries as being straightforward, sincere, brave, honest, optimistic, creative, confident, energetic, heart centered and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives. It’s a powerful time to re-evaluate our relationship with ourselves and delve into a deeper understanding of our infinite possibilities in order to make forward motion changes in our lives anchored in the fiery transformation energy.  It is time to express our authenticity in the present moment of who we are now, rather than who we were, knowing we can rely on ourselves and being happy about doing so. With this energy we are expanding our inner happiness and know we can be self-sufficient without seeking outside validation or blaming others for the challenges we endured in our lives. It’s a time to refresh and revitalize ourselves through experiences that are aligned and step away from the humdrum routine and doing something new and fresh.

The New Moon in the window of Mercury retrograde may bring some discomfort with the past and may bring up intrusive thoughts and any lingering unhealed emotions but this is in order to motivate and solidify new beginnings. Mars, the ruler of Aries, is coming into alignment in conjunction with Saturn on the 10th, adds to the desire for changes. Mars represents action, energy and assertiveness, while Saturn is associated with discipline, responsibility and limitations, blending drive and structured approach. This conduction encourages endurance, confidence, persistence, patience, organization, inner strength, in order to navigate through any perceived challenges. Saturn is associated with karmic lessons and personal growth through any challenges, while Mars highlights where we need to confront any outdated fears through spiritual growth and self mastery. 


This Eclipse shines light into every corner of shadow energy, so it is important to stay grounded and aligned in order to avoid jumping to conclusions and asserting ourselves without considering others’ feelings. There is a big difference between asserting ourselves from a place of healthy confidence, and asserting ourselves from our lower vibrational ego. 


We have the opportunity to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond the next 6 months. I personally don't believe in making mistakes as everything in our lives is a choice, from the clothes we put on, the speed we drive, the person we interact with, the thoughts we think, every action (internally and externally) is a choice and it's time to make more conscious choices. We are all flawed in different ways for many different reasons and this is a time where we are being prompted to move into the new beginnings and fresh starts of our journey. Something ends in order for something else to start anew and we may be asked to forgive, release, let go, etc., in order to move forward and begin the next chapter on our journey. Many may unconsciously fear change as it is in the realm of the uncertain and unknown, but it is a vital part of our ascension and understanding what we “know” within and trusting the unfolding of the rest. When we surrender to trusting the Universe (Source, inner being, higher self), we create space for the unfolding which we need to do through our heart in harmony with our higher mind (higher self).   


An eclipse occurs close to the nodal axis, and this eclipse is closer to the North Node of destiny and this Eclipse unites all in Aries bringing in an overall energy of what we are pulling into our lives. While we’re heading into the “unknown” in some ways, we also have a good sense that we’re doing so to our advantage for our highest good. Major developments in the personal areas ruled by Aries in our charts are likely to occur over the next 6 months. Overall, the Aries Solar Eclipse offers a potent opportunity for both personal and collective growth through embracing the energies of change, courage, authenticity, and transformation. We  navigate this eclipse season with grace and emerge empowered to create the lives we truly desire.

April 10th  Mars Conjunct Saturn and Jupiter semi-sextile Chiron

As mentioned Mars conjunct Satrun brings in themes of inner strength, conscious action, endurance, focus, transformation, karmic lessons, encouraging us to face perceived challenges with confidence and determination in order to make healthy and steady progress towards both our spiritual and material desires. Use mindfulness and self awareness in order to balance heart and mind for your overall well-being as well as compassion for others. 

Jupiter semi-sextile Chiron has both expanded healing and emotional balance due to the influence of Jupiter. Jupiter represents expansion, growth, and opportunities while Chiron, known as the "Wounded Healer," symbolizes our deepest wounds and the potential for healing and transformation. When these two planets form a semi-sextile aspect, there's a subtle but supportive influence for expanding our healing potential when we work with the energy at hand. This aspect encourages us to seek solutions to old wounds and challenges in a gentle and harmonious, self loving way. It can promote a sense of optimism, hope, and a willingness to explore new healing modalities or perspectives that are aligned with who we are in the now. Jupiter's influence brings wisdom and understanding to our experiences of pain, sufferings or vulnerability, helping us to see the bigger picture, find meaning in our struggles, and integrate lessons learned from past wounds into our journey of personal and spiritual growth. This invites us to approach our wounds with compassion, forgiveness, and a sense of openness to receive healing energies, love, support and also enhance our connection to inner guidance, intuition, and spiritual wisdom. It encourages us to trust the healing process, listen to our inner voice, and follow the paths that lead us toward greater wholeness and well-being while transcending limiting beliefs. Releasing, transmuting and transcending limiting beliefs or self-imposed boundaries that may be hindering our healing journey, encourages us to embrace expansive thinking, faith and trust in the healing journey, and a belief in our capacity to overcome challenges with grace, love and openness.


April 11th Sun Conjunct Mercury 

Mercury represents communication and intellect and the way we process information and when it conjuncts the Sun, which symbolizes our core identity this alignment enhances our ability to express ourselves clearly, confidently and with a strong sense of purpose. This promotes inner vision, acquiring new skills, sharing knowledge and alignment of our thoughts, beliefs and inner light. We have the opportunity to seek deeper introspection, uncovering inner truths and it supports our authentic self expression from the heart, aligning our communication with our inner guidance.  

April 19th Mercury conjunct Venus

This conjunction fosters a sense of artistic expression and can inspire us to communicate with grace, charm and diplomacy, supporting healthy interactions, networking and developing harmonious relationships. It is an energy of heart centered communication inviting us to express love, kindness, compassion fostering understanding and appreciation for others. You may feel a desire to embrace the simple pleasures of life and are encouraged to tap into gratitude. This will invite us to balance our rational thinking mind (Mercury) with our emotional intelligence and empathy (Venus) encouraging us to listen to our intuition, express our feelings authentically while cultivating harmonious relationships based in mutual respect and understanding. 

April 21st Juno Direct 

Juno went retrograde in Virgo in January and is associated with partnership dynamics, commitment, and loyalty and Juno turns direct, it signifies a time of clarity and forward movement in relationships, especially in areas related to mutual respect, equality, and shared responsibilities. During Juno's retrograde phase (which happens roughly for about four months each year), there was a period of reevaluation and reflection regarding partnerships, commitments, and the roles we play in relationships. Now the direct motion of Juno facilitates improved communication and understanding between partners helping resolve misunderstandings, strengthen bonds, and foster greater harmony in relationships that have a strong healthy foundation. Juno's direct motion is seen as a symbolic alignment of soul connections and spiritual unions as it encourages us to honor the deeper spiritual aspects of our relationships, recognizing them as opportunities for growth, healing, and mutual support and partnership on our soul's journey. This invites us to commit to our personal and spiritual growth within the context of partnerships and encourages us to cultivate qualities like trust, honesty, empathy, and understanding, which are essential for nurturing meaningful connections offering balance and harmony, acknowledging the importance of both individuality and togetherness.


April 23rd Full Moon in Scorpio

Scorpio full moon is associated with deep emotions, transformation and intensity as this is the first full moon in our astrological new year. This is more opportunity for those who need to address emotional stagnancy, what is still hidden under the surface, truths that need to be seen and any issues that require healing. Full moons are a time of culmination and completion and with Scorpio being a water sign this energy is amplified. It's a potent energy for releasing what no longer serves you (which has been the theme of the first few months of 2024), releasing emotional baggage in order to fully embrace the freedom in transformation and renewal. If you have lingering suffering, hurt, heartache and any emotional attachments that need clearing, this is the Moon for you. This Moon influences a deep dive into our psyche to confront fears, gain insights into our unconscious patterns (ie: self sabotaging), desires while encouraging emotional maturity, self understanding and deep healing, which can trigger spiritual awakening, heightened intuition and pushing us to trust our inner guidance rather that being guided by a fear based mentality. Take time to do energetic clearing, purification which will support your transformation through releasing blockages, old wounds, stagnant emotions, with Scorpio being associated with the shadow self and unconscious mind. This is a time to allow your healing, surrender to your full healing through embracing your wholeness, all aspects of self that have been ignored, hidden away, suppressed so that you may fully integrate your authentic self through unconditional love.  


April 25th Mercury goes direct

Mercury ends his retrograde and goes direct although we will remain in the shadow period for approximately 2 more weeks, taking us into May. This direct motion represents a sense of clarity, smoother communication and less technical glitches. This is a time of forward momentum making it a favorable time for starting new projects, signing contracts, making important decisions,  initiation of new plans and clearing any perceived obstacle that may have arisen during the retrograde. This is also a time of integrating lessons learned during the retrograde period and is a time to reflect on the insights gained, reviewing the past few weeks and applying the newfound wisdom on your journey. 

We are also in the shadow period of Pluto going retrograde on May 2nd. Pluto is associated with deep transformation, power dynamics and uncovering hidden truths and his retrograde has a deep internalized transformation which prompts us to review areas of our lives where we need profound change. This retrograde can bring up any unresolved past issues, emotions, buried desire and is a time for introspection, self analysis and confronting deep seated fears of pattern that may be holding you back from expansion and growth. A few themes of this retrograde are based in Soul evolution, transformational healing, empowerment, supporting spiritual evolution, releasing attachments and transformational healing on a Soul level.
