April Showers bring a lot more than May Flowers

Iris Fairy

April could be one of the hottest months on the planet. Not necessarily weather-wise, but the amount of astrological energy heating up the planet. Every astrologer has some kind of insight on what all of these planetary energies could mean individually and collectively.

I’m going to do my best to write in a manner that non-astrologers can understand, and shed some light on what has been going on this year?! Since January of this year, many of us have been going through huge changes in our personal lives while we watch the world news, and wonder what country is next going to go through a revolution, or a take-over.

I like to view the planets as energy, and how they interact with one another can have a great impact on each one of us. The Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are highly charged right now so if you have any planets in those signs, you could be experiencing this energy more than others. These signs are known for being the great initiators of change. What is happening right now is that they are moving towards a Cardinal Grand Cross of energy becoming exact in the coming month of April. Pluto, the intense transformer, is in Capricorn; Uranus, the great awakener, is in Aries; Jupiter, the bringer of abundance and healing, is in Cancer; and Mars, our masculine drive, is in Libra. These planets are joining forces for personal change, and big shifts on the planet.

Many astrologers are watching the birth chart of the United States which was born on July 4, 1776, making our nation a Cancer which will be strongly highlighted in this Grand Cross because the U.S. was born when the Sun was at 13 degrees of Cancer, the same degrees as this Grand Cross. For the United States, this could be another level of break-down in the government, and the powers that be. The Mountain Astrologer’s December/January 2014 issue covered some of the hot topics around this Grand Cross for America.

In our individual lives, I feel that people with planets in the Cardinal signs are going to be the most impacted, but all of us will feel this energy especially in the areas of relationship – Aries, about our personal relationship with Self; Cancer, with our families; Libra with the Other; and our public connections in Capricorn. In these areas, the changes may be abrupt, challenging, and powerful, but the energies also give us the chance to make a huge shift in our personal lives.

If you can work with these energies, you can take a leap to a whole new level, especially with the eclipses also taking place in the month of April. The first eclipse will be a Lunar eclipse, a Full Moon at 25 degrees of Libra with the Sun at 25 degrees of Aries on Tue., April 15, making for an enlightening tax day in this country. You may want to make every effort to get your taxes done ahead of time, but I have a feeling that many will wait, creating their own eclipse experience.

For others, the Lunar Eclipse of April 15th can be a spiritual experience where you can receive the highest revelations on your life’s path. If you can take the time to meditate, journal, and/or spend time in nature, you may receive the most insights from this powerful eclipse. The degrees of this eclipse are very close to the Lunar eclipse of October 18, 2013, if you want to reflect back on what was occurring for you at that time.

The second eclipse will be a Solar Eclipse, a New Moon at 8 degrees of Taurus on Mon., April 28. This eclipse has the energy that all New Moons share including new beginnings, and the chance to release intentions/goals for what you would like to create in your life. The power of the eclipse amplifies this New Moon energy, and many people can find themselves, making huge new beginnings.

With the energy of these eclipses and the on-going Cardinal Grand Cross which will be the most intense from April 12 – 29, I imagine that many people will find themselves in a whole new place by the end of the month. For me personally, I am working with these energies to make a big change in my life. I just listed my home for sale on March 15, and I have a strong feeling that it will be selling and closing rather quickly, and then I will be making a big cross-country move by the end of April.

Whatever way, you decide to work with these eclipses and the Grand Cross, the more conscious you can be, the greater the chance for evolving even more on your chosen life’s path. When you come together with others who are as awake, self-empowered, and self-responsible, it will be amazing what you can co-create together.
May the month of April be a time where we can all take a huge leap in consciousness. The energies are there for all of us. What we do with this energy is up to us. Spring has definitely sprung.

  1. hi Donna,

    thank you for your post and congrats on listing your house and good luck too! are open to renting it or committed to a sale at this point? once you leave there, might be hard to get back into the CA housing market

    I think we might have this house sold, house inspection is the 31st Mar and we’ll be driving out to CA, stopping in TX, and NewMexico, actually wanting to spend some time there, maybe end up renting for a time before back to CA, but renting, not buying, Pacific Grove area/Carmel is calling me, we’ll see

    sounds like you’re coming back this way, will you stay here? it’s been a tough place for me, I’ve met some nice people, but there isn’t enough ‘chi’, projects and people are not fluid, it’s rigid, fixed, been hard to make creative things happen

    maybe Gaia is calling your brand of healing energetic here to clean out the grids 😉 there are a couple of ladies, Goldenlight and Ascension360 who are doing good work in Mass

    re: physical Ascension symptoms, they are pretty horrendous, I sincerely hope you don’t go through this body-hell, but I’m connected with others experiencing the same, maybe we are “roto-rooters” of a sort?!

    I know whining isn’t dignified, but it’s truthful at this juncture, with all the physical intensity I really wonder what the biology is up to at times, tremendous electricity and gravitational pressures pretty much 24/7

    on a lighter note have you caught “Selfridge’s” on PBS? seems like the kind of thing you’d appreciate, 1909 era London, the stage, Pavlova, etc

    be well, bless, d~~

    Wow–thanks for making it so easy to understand (well, most of it!). This line really resonated with me, and I thank you for it; When you come together with others who are as awake, self-empowered, and self-responsible, it will be amazing what you can co-create together.

    I am of course finished with my huge event (success!) and just had surgery on my leg (healing well!). What does your schedule look like? Time for coffee or something?

    Hugs, Rhonda
