April 23 – With the Moon, Neptune, Chiron, South Node and Venus in Pisces – some of you may be on a high with the intensity, depth and magical beauty of romantic and business collaborations – and the Mystery of Embodying the Feminine. If these experiences are grounded in reality, great – if not – you might want to sit under a tree and grab a piece of paper and pen and scrutinize your choices. This is especially true for the next 13 hours as the Moon transits Pisces.
Some of you will have intense spiritual experiences, the tendency (or test whether) to romanticize/ pedestalize/ merge/ escape as you meet old ghosts from your relationships and your relationship with the Feminine aspect of the Self.
Old, aching wounds surrounding vulnerability, abandonment, feeling victimized, feeling unworthy and alone may also come up. Know this this feeling is temporary and it is an illusion (no matter how it real may seem).
Read that out loud in a mirror (substitute pronouns as appropriate) if you feel the need to. Hugging a piece of rose quartz and/or rhodocrosite and/or rhodonite and/or unakite will be of use in this regard.
Karmic connections may seem more appealing at this time but remember that just because you may have a sense of history or familiarity with someone – you do not need to revisit a karmic cycle with them.
Not everything that you feel is as it appears to be owing to the Piscean influence and the fact that Mercury is Retrograde as well. So navigate wisely – especially over the next 13 hours.
It´ll be rough, choppy seas for some of you whereas others will move through the veil of illusion in search of a more transcendent truth and deeper levels of connection and healing. And some will simply seek to escape it all, or embrace it all, or both / nothing (you know how Pisces goes …).
Ultimately, it comes down to where you are in your journey and how you choose to navigate it. So …
No need for comparisons. No need for judgements.
If feeling vulnerable, get a blanket fort and/or seeking out people who are both able and willing to hold space for you.
Moreover, multiple astrological bodies are seeking to move into new signs within the next two weeks! Venus into Aries, Vesta into Leo, North Node into Leo and South Node into Aquarius.
We´re going to first clear the emotional waterways as we prepare ourselves for a blast of celestial fire, creation and inspiration!
There´s so much to look forwards to, so keep your eye on the ball 😉
Some general tips:
Listen to your body´s needs
Get enough sleep
Stay grounded (sitting under a tree helps)
Write out a list of pros and cons for things (or people) you are weighing up in your mind
Salt soaks with essential oils like lavender and geranium can provide a sense of calm and emotional healing at this time (but always check for purity, dosage and contraindications – especially if pregnant or on medication – essential oils are powerful stuff!). Otherwise work with gemstones in the bath such as lepidolite, rose quartz and amethyst.
And whatever you do, keep the faith. The Universe has a way of working things out, even if the methods and reasons aren´t apparent to you at this time. Ride the wave and hang in there ❤
P.S. for those of you in Australia – remember thcat I am holding a workshop on the Root Chakra in the Gold Coast on the 29th of April and one on the Sacral Chakra in Melbourne on May 3rd. Owing to the nature of my work these will not be recorded but I plan to do webinars on them at a later date.
