Happy April!

How is everyone doing with Mercury in Retrograde? Normally I love Mercury Retrogrades... I feel more attuned with magic and psychic connection. But with Saturn and Pluto forming harsh angles, this one has been particularly challenging. Luckily, the energies begin to lighten up on April 4. We'll be emerging transformed and renewed, particularly in our relationships.

April's major transit occurs on April 17, when Chiron moves into Aries for the first time in fifty years. Aggression and fighting will begin to soften as we unlock massive potentials for healing and reconciliation.

The key this month is remembering to love and enjoy ourselves, celebrating the magic of our solitary hearts. In doing so, we will open not only to greater healing, but also to deeper connectionintimacy, and authenticity. With dreams aligned and channels open, we can begin to  build the lives and world we want to see! Read more about the Astrology of April in my latest article...

We begin Aries in the midst of an arduous Mercury Retrograde, whose messages reveal themselves at the first of the month. We’re cleaning up our relationships while establishing more peace, both within ourselves and with each other. On April 17, Chiron, the Wounded Healer, moves into Aries for the first time since 1968. Here, we begin an eight-year cycle of tremendous healing and recalibrating our inner masculine—softening our anger and aggression. As martyrs and rebels, the children are stepping into their power, leading us to the next paradigm. It certainly feels like the beginning of the Aquarian Age. A Sun-Uranus conjunction mid-April makes sure we break free of any conditioning holding us back. This way, we can conjure wisdom and revolution from within. Gone is the era of gurus and saviors. With authenticity and integrity, we can root to the earth and open to vastness, questioning truth and the nature of reality on our own accord. Overall, this is an important month for diving deep and asking ourselves what we truly want and which paths we will take. With Jupiter in Scorpio, we’re investigating our deepest layers of trauma, grief, and shadow work, so we can emerge more genuine and available for more meaningful connections. Ultimately, this is clearing the way for us to work together more harmoniously, ensuring that our future is aligned with safety, true intelligence, compassion, and inspiration.

As we wait for warmer days, may we relax, taking pleasure in the in-betweens. May we feel gratitude for the stillness, caring for ourselves before leaping ahead, through forests of flowering trees, the sun breaking through fog.
