Welcome to ARIES: SPRINGS THEME IS ALWAYS OF BIRTH AND RESURRECTION:
What do you want to birth or resurrect?
KEYWORDS for now are aggressive, straightforward and Adventuresome from March 20th as the sun entered ARIES we entered the Vernal equinox and a time of FIRE.. Spring, the sun and LIGHT
The 2nd part of this magic is April 3 4 and 5th until the new moon at 1:50am PDT is Balsmic wishing moon and the POWERFUL new moon on April 5th. Time to recognize that some things in your life are now ready to blossom forward. (LIKE my new website, slimming down, and making it easier for me to post on)***
THE MAGICAL THEME OF March and APRIL is Youthful energy and adventure: and THE TAROT CARD THE FOOL rules this time astrologically..
It may be time for you to, PLANT a rowan tree by your door that only GOOD and peace may enter:
USE THE HERBS and oils of LEMON and TANGERINE FOR JOY and how about putting LAVENDER Candles in the window to welcome all wonderful things to your life?
The colors of April are all forms of RED, which is the color of passion, and new beginnings; Red carries unbelievable power if you wear it, or even visualize it
Stones Sacred to April are Fire Opal, Bloodstone, and Golden citrine
MARCH 2019 was about believing, trusting and manifesting Now APRIL IS THE TIME OF OPENING, planting and movement: April is the 4th month of a #3 year, thus making this April 2019 An magical 7 month, to me the Number 7 is a pondering processing and finding answers number..
Mercury the trickster planet of ideas, and communications is moving forward slowly still in Pisces until it gets out of that retrograde shadow and moves into Aries on April 16th.
THEN Communications and ideas are on Fast forward this month in the Sign of Aries until the 6th of June 2019 when it enters Taurus and the need to build, create plans and get things done becomes tremendously strong .
How best to use this? How about visualizing your strengths, abilities, and courage and then believing in all that you are and making it visible to others and to yourself always?
Since The Symbol Pisces is the dream and vision, lets make good use of positive imagining of our new future until the 16th and then make use of the symbol of Aries which is the RAM, head down and charging forward and with Mercury (ideas) , and the sun in this sign until the sun enters Taurus on the 20th..(Passover)
We all will be happy to know that the Planet Mars in GEMINI all this month assists with building plans from new ideas about different thoughts and actions we might take to more effectively get the results we desire.
Gemini is the sign of networking and connections so make sure and add an action around a new contact, group, or just doing something new.
Venus the planet of love and what we desire is still in Watery and imaginative Pisces until the 20th when it enters Aries Venus in Aries until the 20th has us more eager to encounter new ideas and maybe especially for some, take a risk on the wheel of romance again?
The planet Venus enters Steady and slow Taurus on the 20th and we are much more likely to build sustaining energies after that date. SO until the 20th GO FOR IT, bring in lots of energy and then the 20th helps you weed out what no longer belongs and what you can build from…
PROBABLY the biggest thing about this month is 3 major planets moving retrograde, and trying to slow us down…
JUPITER the planet which represents what we BELIEVE retrograde in Sagittarius the sign of our own TRUTH…and I remind you again of the theme of what or who is RIGHT? The turkey who would love Thanksgiving to be about VEGTABLES, or the people who want to sit down to a turkey dinner? SEE there can be more than one truth can’t there?
Jupiter retrograde 4/10/2019 retrogrades at 24 Sagittarius Moves direct 8/11/2019 at 19 Sagittarius :
This will be an opportunity to see if we are really looking at that we want to be true or what is true and what truth is to you. SEEMS the theme of the last 2 years but… THINGS are beginning to come into reality and answers will be more available this month if we are willing to see them:
(BIGGEST DANGER WITH this retrograde is trying to make others think your way, and trying to do the RIGHT AND WRONG thing with them : RESISTANCE 99% of the time creates MORE resistance
***) Please remember where these degrees are in your chart things will kind of stall out and stop***
4/24 PLUTO the planet which represents upheaval and volcanoes and THE EVOLUTIONARY JOURNEY OF THE SOUL moves Retrograde: Pluto retrograde 4/24/2019 at 23 Capricorn;
Pluto moves direct 10/2/2019 at 20 degrees of Capricorn: Pluto is always difficult to call but often during retrograde time huge changes come into being and when PLUTO moves direct the changes happen in the real world.
PLUTO RETROGRADE IN CAPRICORN will for sure be more things set into an order in Politics
4/25 as the MOON TOUCHES PLUTO RETROGRADE it seems to add some real POP to this year:
Monday the 29th Saturn the planet which represents order, structure, organization and karmic energies moves retrograde
Saturn rx 4/29/2019 at 20 Capricorn: YOU MAY NOTICE That is only 3 degrees from PLUTO retrograde so…Saturn and Pluto together the karmic destiny twins:
Saturn will move direct 9/18/2019 at 13 Capricorn (I would say that attempts to be set up new laws, rules and structures will be happening with Saturn retrograde, while others with Pluto retrograde will attempt to keep these new structures from happening.
This summer will be full of many challenges as to what our VISION was.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS to remember to be positive, to avoid others folks acting out, to be as kind and nice as you can be…and maybe to please remember:
WE ALL WANT THE SAME THINGS…safety, health, money, love, security, a sense of purpose, and to be GOOD people…and many of us are thinking that to have one we have to give up another. I KNOW THIS WILL CHANGE, please be patient and off and away with an very interesting WHOOOOO Nellie stop the wagon Month:
The full moon on the 19th is ARIES/LIBRA energy. SELF and others and a GOOD FRIDAY to boot, with Passover and the sun entering Taurus that next day. TRY to book yourself some time off that weekend because things will be spinning pretty fast by that releasing full moon 4:12am PDT on the 19th.
We are now in Spring and Spring always has the tremendous promise of the wonderful and fulfilling year to come. See yourself as the Fairy Godmother or Godfather of Spring in your own life and those around you, and wave that wand, roll up those sleeves and get busy creating.
The theme of this Spring for us all is not only growth out in the world, but personal growth and also the theme at this time is GROWTH in a good way for the planet. Many energies coming into our lives will tune us all into what we PERSONALLY (Aries) can do to help the planet and nature (Taurus) …
Uranus the planet of change in this sign is joined by the SUN entering Taurus on the 20th and we are encouraged to build upon what we have in our lives.
So, until the 20th and even after, work harder believing that there is ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE.
There is no true lack in our world. And when we recognize this we stop panicking, it releases those fearful thoughts and ideas and allows us growth body, mind and spirit and we heal the world I believe in this way.
So, lets get going and make our lives better so we can help make others and the planets live better.
I wish you Blessings, peace, and abundance in all good things in this time of Growth of April 2019
and please remember, this time is much about ….. CHANGING your routine and recognizing if an thought, idea, vision, plan, action did not work last time, perhaps it is time for us all to come from a NEW direction. Isn’t there that saying? doing the same thing in the same way and expecting a different outcome is insanity:

There are many holy days this month, meaning that at these dates and times for many hundreds of years, people have prayed, meditated and done good deeds.

APRIL 20, 2019 Passover
For the next 7 days traditional Jewish homes will Celebrate the Passover. Each year though I am not Jewish I use this day to think of what has passed over Me this lifetime.
One of the things I never had to do was see a son Off to War… to live without friends… to live without Love… to be in the streets hungry and alone… …
Maybe today you might want to think of what has Passed you over also? AND celebrate this day with me And we recognize how we have been gifted …
AND YES:::WE all have the huge lists of THIS HAPPENED TO ME and it was horrible…but today Concentrate please on what you did not have to endure And know you will never endure…
Can know that we are safe and make it happen by Knowing it can’t we?
