There’s a feeling of a fresh start in the air!
April begins with a blessing as Venus enters the sign she rules, Taurus. This sets the tone for the month and stirs us to cultivate beautiful, natural surroundings and tables spread with delectable foods.
Simultaneously, we have potent Mars energies around to do what we need to do – but only if we’re prepared to proceed in a calm and courageous way. This month is not your usual “leap before you look” Aries energy; both the Sun and Mars are working closely with Karmic Master Saturn to reign in impulsivity and cool down the pace.
The Aries New Moon on Sunday, April 15, changes all that as the Sun and Moon hook up with Uranus, the Awakener. Watch the night sky and offer up your intentions for your life and for those you love.
The week of April 15 – 21 is a period of adjustment as some planets pick up speed while others slow down. It’s a good time to allow things to take their course.
If you’re looking for a time to execute a project that requires major effort and forceful energy, it’s April 25 – 27. Best of luck!
And bon appétit!
May the Sun shine upon you,
