Earth Realm Spirit Lords, what are human beings in for during the month of April?
ANSWER: High Priestess
High Priestess confirms to humanity floods are surging, but those with sufficient soul perception will not suffocate in the deluge.
High Priestess is the bearer of deep knowledge, a knowing that transcends all the five senses and exists in an eternal domain of omnipresent consciousness. This tarot card, which is astrologically associated with the Moon, offers a very real, ever-present, intense and mysterious message for the month of April.
High Priestess represents the divine feminine principle, the very forces behind birth and death, a nature that supersedes physicality and runs sh*t not only in the flesh, but also in spiritual realms beyond the naked eye. When High Priestess shows up, intuition is not to be ignored and, in fact, it’s probably far more accurate than the mind can compute.
There are many social, cultural, environmental and metaphysical implications this card is highlighting that need to be addressed, because the presence of High Priestess confirms the power of anima will be exposed to mankind in an unprecedented manner in the weeks ahead.
High Priestess’ association with the earth’s Moon is no accident; the Moon is an inscrutable celestial satellite with a gravitational pull affecting the tides, plants, sleep and a host of other natural constitutions for all beings, visible and invisible, on terra firma. Through unseen forces, the Moon shapes apparent reality. It also only shows beings on this planet one face; the dark side of the Moon remains hidden.
However advanced society may appear at the moment, unseen forces and realms of knowledge continue to be discredited as nonsense. Psychic and spiritual aptitude is still viewed as unsubstantiated “belief” without any merit on what is “real”. This feeble attempt to silence supernatural existence by writing off such phenomena as “non-reality” extends beyond the metaphysical and into the treatment of the human female in everyday life.
The predominant modus operandi for addressing the feminine experience is to ignore and recriminate. “Shut the f**k up b*tch” is an accurate verbalization of things like rape culture (blaming the victim instead of perpetrator for sexual crimes) or the gender pay gap (providing significantly lower wages to women who perform the same jobs as men). “Shut the f**k up b*tch” is an effective phrase because it both ignores the grievance and recriminates the accuser at the same time.
The mainstream treatment of the human female and the effects of the Moon’s unseen forces is interchangeable in other, more subtle ways with the presence of High Priestess.
Telling people to “shut up and go away” because they express a very real grievance does not mean the problem will rectify itself, that it doesn’t exist or it has no merit. The ignore and recriminate model is not powerful enough to shut down the omnipotent powerful force of the divine feminine principle.
Mankind is now experiencing its dark face. This is not about seeing with the naked eye; this experience is knowing in the deepest recesses of your soul.
It is only natural to react with unbridled emotion when the earth is unhealthy and healing itself by means of expunging its abusers, the human race, from the planet. When people are demanding “civil conversations” but the fellow interlocutor is going bat sh*t crazy, maybe it’s because the KNOWLEDGE we are nearing extinction is driving the “overreaction”.
High Priestess certifies we are going through some serious sh*t right now, this isn’t just another day in the neighborhood, a walk in the park. No matter who is saying what, trying to placate whatever, the fact is, the stress and the powerful, unmitigating feelings emerging from the core of our beings are NOT non-realities! The intuition that a “cleansing” could happen, or rather IS happening right now, is REAL, despite any APPARENT facts to deny the intuition’s credibility.
Do not close your eyes and drown in the flood with blind followers flailing to succeed by using what they can see to manipulate their minds into believing there is no force greater than their thoughts.
Intellectual competence cannot f**k with the forces of the universe. This is knowledge we harbor in senses beyond the body…
The naked eye will fail.
High Priestess demands human beings learn to perceive reality with their hearts and souls.

KEY APRIL THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Fool: Ram, moving on into new realms is of critical importance. Last month Lovers card made it clear choosing a course of direction was paramount and with the presence of the Fool in April, it’s time to walk that path. There is a divine spectacle surrounding your journey right now, with an array of perfectly placed disjointed events converging to support your next steps. Spontaneity is a huge aid and will continue to be for the duration of planet Uranus’ transit through the zodiac sign of Aries until May 15, 2018… and also again during a retrograde regression from November 7, 2018 to March 6, 2019. Whatever plans you may possess are subject to upheaval, but surprise events will ultimately turn out to be for your benefit. You are protected by a strong unseen divinity. Go with the flow of the electric cray.
Taurus - Seven of Cups to the left/downward: Bull, comfort zones and safety nets are due for a major reevaluation. Seven of Cups to the left/downward indicates a rattling upset, some unforeseen complication that changes the game. Although a tragedy is possible, the shake-up may not be traumatic; it could be something as simple albeit life-changing as receiving a whopping bill, a professional surprise or having a car breakdown. Whatever happens, the most effective strategy is to keep truckin’. You’re probably not on the wrong track, but there are just little adjustments to be made to fine-tune your overall performance. So many life events have occurred in the past few months that need more focused attention; work on integrating small details of the grand whole for optimal functionality.
Gemini - Ten of Pentacles to the right: Twins, yes, it’s Mercury Retrograde from April 9 to May 3, and there is confusion and lack of clarity as a result of the transit, but despite the headaches you are in for advancement. Ten of Pentacles to the right acknowledges achievement; whatever has been dutifully sought, without cutting corners, with full integrity, truly is working out very well and you should be proud of what you’ve accomplished. However, some pressure may exist that ostensibly indicates problems or some faultiness in how you’re operating. You’ve advanced so far, you’re now in unfamiliar territory. The landscape is so different, it may feel like you’ve f**ked up and followed faulty directions; this is not true, stay where you are. Look around and discover the new resources abundant in the unexplored land you’re standing on. This is not a blast forward on initiatives period of time; you’ve already done that and have come far as a result. Right now, it’s more about engaging with new tools in a fresh environment… you’re not stationary; a cycle is complete, you’ve graduated, now your expertise has to be applied in advanced ways. Please note, this may also be a lonely path; take care when listening to any opinions outside of yourself. Embrace your unique Self and situation. You’re a transformed person with renewed needs. You stand alone and stand out.
Cancer - Queen of Swords to the left: Crab, you are discovering voices you’ve always possessed, but appreciating the depth of your range in totally unprecedented ways. However, Queen of Swords to the left suggests a lack of clarity on what to say. Take some time out to rediscover what is true for you before vocalizing firm declarations. Queen of Swords to the left can also indicate a more difficult time to communicate in general. This talking pain in the a*s vibe is further amplified by Mercury Retrograde from April 9 to May 3, so, just be aware you may not be on your highest form when it comes to corresponding with others. But, good, that’s not what this month is about anyway; April is lived well if you sharpen your personal communication skills. If you’re learning a language, in the weeks ahead, you’ll reach a grammatical speed bump that’ll drive you nuts because the lesson just does not compute, but when the subject finally makes sense, you’ll become a formidable conversationalist and wow with your words. This goes for everyone; taking time out to tap into your own authentic expression is an essential exercise. The goal is linguistic mastery. You may need to schedule more solo time than usual; don’t be infected by the thoughts or expressions of others. Something deep, like a life phase or a chapter of your personality, is coming to a close and you require reflective solitude replete with nothing but your own individual assessments to prepare for what’s to come.
Leo - King of Wands to the right: Lion, the creative challenges experienced in recent months have helped you blossom into a full-fledged authority on whatever subject has been the object of your focus. King of Wands to the right represents a creative risk-taker who plunges into the inferno head first and handles sh*t, but don’t burn out! There is huge potential to go overboard with it, making the pursuit so unnecessarily un-fun and life-draining. Don’t do that to yourself. Allow the double fire element heat of King of Wands to burn slowly, so that you have the energy to take on your endeavors over a sustained period of time. There may also be a need to do some cardio exercise, go running or dancing, get your heart rate up to burn off some of this fire in a healthy way. King of Wands to the right can also become obsessive and overbearing; don’t try to alter things too much, leave it be. You’ll preserve sanity by enforcing a chilled out attitude every now and then and just allowing elements to fall into place naturally.
Virgo - Strength to the right: Virgin, it may be time to give up. Strength to the right is pushing something to the extreme. Standing in firm resolve for the betterment of a person or pursuit is honorable and you are a treasure for your principled integrity, thank you, but when enough is enough, you can’t kick the life back into something deceased. March was a real awakening for you in terms of the pursuit of your dreams and April presents two options: go for it or peace out. This is a strategic withdrawal, not a defeat. Things need to be rearranged and priorities revamped. The fact is, the next step is so crucial that if it is a misstep, everything will go to sh*t. All that you’ve worked for, *poof*, gone. Why? Because you didn’t slow down and take a second to realize the incompetence abound in the situation? You will benefit from a well thought out timeout. Strength to the right may also possess a large ego. Modesty and competency is the way forward; reckless bravado will put a shameful end to it all.
Libra - Queen of Cups reversed: Libran, a sobering depression may take hold. However dreary this reality may be, the fact is, there is enlightening clarity attached to this experience that is proving to expunge deep-seated toxicity that has held you back for far too long. The shock may be overwhelming because you’ve done so well for a fairly lengthy period of time, but allow the pus to come up, so the necessary healing can finally take place. Do not try to avoid the pain by dulling it with frenetic activity. Focus on real needs. April may be distressing, but this will pass. Take the opportunity to successfully cure the agony while it’s here. There is also an element of Murphy’s Law taking place that makes it seem like literally nothing can go right, but the series of messed up events are actually lining up a great opportunity for you. Accept the lessons, use the sh*tty experience to fertilize your growth like spiritual manure and ride high when circumstances improve; they will soon enough.
Scorpio - Ace of Cups to the right: Scorpion, you continue to be bombarded with lessons about how to overcome being hard on yourself. Ace of Cups to the right stresses the need to take it easy. No matter what is going on in your life, whether you have a job with a 12-hour daily shift schedule, five kids and a horse ranch, or a whole lot of oppressive nothing, you need to take care of yourself. The fact is, operating as you have done in the past, which for most Scorpions is straight up intense and full-on, isn’t working for you anymore. Intensity may not be a trait that you can ever abandon, but be intense making cupcakes, be intense running a bath, be intense relaxing. Ace of Cups to the right also suggests some type of emotional forgiveness occurring. This could be part of your direct conscious awareness or not; it may not be effable. Right now, you’re discovering new leadership qualities in yourself through an embrace of unprecedented emotional awareness. Keep cultivating a fresh sense of how to emotionally relate with the world, it will do you good.
Sagittarius - Six of Cups leaning right: Centaur, childlike enthusiasm about the future is overflowing and it is absolutely wonderful. There are so many things to be excited about and life is definitely bright and filled with promise. But don’t be naive. What a wonderful gift you possess, this fervor for what is to come; this alacrity is real and should not be undervalued or dismissed. However, a great way to degrade this exhilaration is by wasting it through blind devotion. It is easy to get stuck on the positive aspects of the idea, narrowing the focus to just the good things and losing sight of the full picture. This can come back to slap you in the face. Do a full and thorough evaluation. If you are unable to perform this task, rely on helpers who are less attached to provide a comprehensive account of the pros and cons of moving forward. Couple wisdom and integrity with this glee and success is yours.
Capricorn - Knight of Pentacles to the right: Goat, you may be overdoing it and making mistakes. Revisit the strategy and see what’s ineffective, then move on. Knight of Pentacles to the right suggests you may not have too much time to review, because you’re moving very fast right now. There’s a double-edged sword vibe to this situation; it’s great you’re not harping on details too much, but not paying attention could backfire. However, the fact is, it might be best to slow down and get it right no matter what obligations are pressing on you. Feel free to reschedule deadlines; this is not the time to push through a plan that doesn’t work very well just because you don’t want to backtrack. Biting the bullet and reflecting will save you way more headaches later on down the line, just do it.
Aquarius - Nine of Wands to the left: Water Bearer, in March, the same card was pulled in a different position, which means you’re probably hesitating about standing your ground on a key issue. This is not the time to buckle from self-doubts. Stay strong and rely on seasoned formidability, experience and fortitude to see you through. There is also a need to reevaluate what it is you’re fighting for and where you’re actually coming from. Are you really crusading for the highest good of humanity or simply to bolster your own ego? Are your motives truly pure or do you just want to achieve a power status and some respect? If you’re actually being driven to take action to ‘do you’ or to improve yourself, you may be f**king up. This is not about you; your contribution is greater than any one individual. Remember that. If after your assessment you find purity in your purpose, great, then watch out for vipers in your milieu. You’ve got to ensure the people you’re working with are on the same vibe.
Pisces - Ten of Cups to the left: Fish, ethics and integrity are so valuable right now. Stand back and observe if any form of deceit is occurring, because even small holes poked into the integrity of something can eventually lead to a far greater problem. Ten of Cups to the left suggests simple, unadorned honesty is the way forward, and an expression of candor will benefit everyone. There’s a shadow side to this though; trying to avoid handling a dark aspect of yourself or your life is bound to cause a rude awakening. Ten of Cups to the left ultimately demands emotional balance and a purified constitution. If there is present some type of emotional pollution, disease, physical, mental, in any way, please take the time to treat a pool of bacteria to restore it to a clear and healthy state. You’re aiming for calm and measured situations or circumstances here, if things don’t fit that profile, then take a little time out in April to strategically deal with the problem so all parties can move forward without hindrance. Ten of Cups to the left also speaks to the many wonderful gifts you have to share with others who could use your inspiration, kindness and compassion. You’ve got the power to uplift the human condition.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- High Priestess is mysterious… information from this realm is experienced, not rationalized. It is very important to be “clear” before translating knowledge passed through intuition from divine feminine domains. This means doing the work to cleanse the mind, emotions, body and soul of traumas or diseases. Most humans, including spiritualists, need to devote themselves to self-development work of the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional types for years before possessing the ability to translate this knowledge without interference. Even hardcore spiritualists are still unable to do this thanks to a dominant ego, which continues to try to rationalize, thus generating incorrect interpretations and information. When static is present, intuition can get lost beneath the clamour of thoughts and emotions, making it difficult to pinpoint and experience divine knowledge. If the static is too loud, consult with an expert. Experts will need to consult with other experts too.
- Go with the flow. Do not fight the current. High Priestess is water… sometimes water is a large, ostensibly still large body, other times it’s raging rapids, a cool refreshing drink, much-needed rain. No matter its form, H2O is always moving, whatever its appearance. This is nature; a constant flow of movement whether apparent to the naked eye or not. High Priestess requests the development of comfort in the knowledge nothing stays the same; this is the only way to develop as April moves along. In other words, it’s likely some things will not go according to plan, but flowing with rather than fighting the current will do more good… this is like rip tide 5000 in play; flailing will make you drown faster.
- Be aware of four ways of being: floating, swimming, drowning and sinking. Balance is of course always the goal for a human being, but this month emotional depths will be probed. Just be conscious of this and allow deep diving to occur, whether or not it makes sense, is appropriate or welcomed.
- The plight and power of women will be at the forefront in the news cycle. It is really important to discover when the human female denies anima and when she embodies it… or when anima in general is denied or embodied. Perceiving the effects of the former and latter on apparent reality will cause breakthroughs. For example, something as simple as the reality of women who hang out together having the same menstrual cycle will take on a new dimension of magic that cannot be met with anything other with deep reverence.
- Respect the power of the unseen.
- Water health is also front and center. Pay attention to what is happening in aquatic realms. The creatures who live underwater and the condition of water in general represent the state of human health; physical, spiritual, emotional and mental.
- Do not dismiss spectacular expressions of emotions. There is some crazy sh*t brewing right now and some people simply can’t handle the anima. This is not meant to reinforce the deeply abhorrent myth femininity is linked with lunacy, in fact, this is the opposite. Folks have become so disconnected from lunar rhythms, their complete oblivion evokes madness when faced with the force of the feminine divine principle.
