As everything is being birthed anew, feel yourself like a new born baby that requires love and caring for, in this vulnerable state. Watch then as you quickly grow into a mature individual with the enthusiasm and creative passion of a child but the wisdom to take action that serves the highest good. We have spent the last few millennia preparing ourselves for the final shedding of skin that is dry, brittle and cracking. Slough it off and celebrate the freedom and absence of illusion that now adorns you. It is exhilarating and makes you want to run amok in fields of wildflowers and then to dare to imagine the reality you wish to create for your self. The power of the individual as a divine being resonates with you on a very deep level—just in time! All around us is the ocean of love that rises ultimately to consume us all in a wave of blissful euphoria or to drown us in a rush of faithless cynicism.
We are all pretty much aware of the daunting line up in Aries that is occurring throughout most of the month of April—not to dwell upon the astrological significance of that as it is covered expertly elsewhere in this newsletter but there is one point I would like to mention in that regard. Symbolically speaking, it is time to unfurl and spread our wings and leap joyously into the void that time and space do not inhabit and trust your inner sight to guide you through, what may seem at first to be, the perilous dark. Embrace your Black Moon Lilith and dance on the edge of madness and hope that your mind is lost amongst the worn out phrases and beliefs. This is not the time to fear that which you do not know but to know that THAT is exactly as it should be.
This month whenever you have a moment, surround your thoughts with orange and picture everyone, everywhere interacting with love. Begin with the members of your family and allow the orange glow to spread outwards to all of your friends, acquaintances, everyone and everything in this country. Then send these thoughts of love to everyone on this planet and picture them interacting toward each other with loving kindness.
The color orange relates to the second chakra which is the center of creativity, sexuality, joy, enthusiasm, and promotes a general sense of well being. It also holds the key to how we relate to each other. The color orange can balance and support the 2nd chakra which in turn inspires us to express our joy. If you think you might be in need of balancing your 2nd chakra you may choose to carry or wear one of the following stones—carnelian, Moroccan Vanadenite, Fire Opal, Sunstone, Amber or Golden Topaz to mention a few.
As there is an abundance of electric blue energy affecting us at this time, orange as the opposite of blue will act to bring the environment into harmony. Over eating will not achieve the balance you may be looking for though eating orange food (carrots, yams, papaya, squash) could.
The 3 Tarot Cards for April
The Knight of Cups: He gives of himself freely and with open heart; an emotional optimist who knows how to relate to others. With loving compassion and dauntless spirit he leads us forward to a sweeter place of intimate connection with self and therefore others. Poetic with his creativity verse flows forth, iridescent rivulets that soften as they traverse the wild landscape that shapes our reality. It is the jewel long buried that slowly works its way into the light of day.
Five of Pentacles: What layers have concealed this light and kept us in a state of feeling helpless and disempowered? Many stories, from the beginning of time. Fives are the number of human potential and the number of change. Five is the number of Mercury, the messenger and the most fluid of elements. Here we are being advised to change our thoughts; to let go of our stories that create feelings of being less than or incapable. As Pentacles and the physical realm this movement will create positive results in the practical world.
Wheel of Fortune: Ten and One, the alpha and the omega. We are reaching the end of a way of being, a way of expressing our selves as human beings the root of which travels deep within the core of our conscious knowing—the soil erodes, the roots tear free and we have the freedom to choose without struggle, without pain. The wheel turns regardless of whether we think we are ready—we are ready. Our intuition and creative passion precede us as coyote watches from afar and sings we humans, into being.
Thank you and don’t forget to love, laugh and leap!
