What is in store for humanity in the month of April?
ANSWER: Four of Wands reversed
A pioneering paradox.
Four of Wands reversed presents itself to force a new perspective on a journey that has already been engineered.
Is it really a good look to continue walking in this direction on the pathway, or is it better to change course? These are the types of evaluations taking place in April.
Comfort is redefined in the weeks ahead, disrupting the trajectory of outlines, lives, everything. All of a sudden, something is not right and it’s like, damn, why?! Not everyone will react that way, but the reversal position suggests dismay, shock or surprise at the realization not everything is falling into place as expected or originally calculated.
On a super philosophical level, Four of Wands reversed confirms the paradoxical, yet astoundingly beautiful nature of independence in our temporary flesh bodies on earth. Although we’re united as a collective and connected to the Eternal, we are actually individuals here. So the task for the month of April is to rediscover what is truly desired on a singular level before moving on, causing intense introspection and personal revelations.
Check out these dates for some SIGNIFICANT events to take place:
The first 18 days of April are the most poignant in awakening new understandings on life pathways. The mind and soul are open to fresh perspectives on directions taken in the past, current journeys and future traverses.
April 11th and 18th are the most intense days of the month, when evolution reveals itself in no uncertain terms, however, on April 29th, when the Sun trines Saturn, confidence, groundedness and effectiveness are restored.
Also, all of this internal awakening is occurring in the final days of the Uranus in Aries cycle, before the hard-hitting outer planet transitions into Taurus on May 15, 2018. Uranus in Aries is fine-tuning its redefinition of Self before connecting with the flow of nature in Taurus; in other words, this is the final month or so of reflection on the person you have become since the start of the Uranus in Aries evolution, which kicked off for real on March 11, 2011. April also encompasses the prior Uranus in Pisces transit from 2003 to 2010, making memories from those years startlingly resonant now too.
KEY APRIL THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Two of Staffs: Ram, decisions are to be had, with huge implications for your soul. This is obviously not a frivolous matter and a thorough evaluation is necessary before signing on the dotted line. Be aware, this issue won’t be fully in place or resolved until December 31, 2018, and it will continue to unfold in a dynamic way through the completion of the Mars in Aries transit, which ends on February 13, 2019. In March, some type of mental agony or obfuscation may have taken hold, and in the weeks ahead, the lessons from the experience encourage a rethink regarding what you really want to do in life, when and why. Take your time, do not rush, you’ve got until the end of the year to ruminate deeply. This doesn’t mean you won’t work toward it until the very last day of 2018, but it’s better to avoid confrontation on the matter(s) in April.
Taurus - Two of Blades: Bull, emotional disconnection is prominent. Two of Blades suggests unsure sentimental footing, a difficult situation where it’s hard to determine where things stand. A problematic element is straight up blindness. A clear, crisp picture is not accessible, making it super challenging to pinpoint the source of enmity or discontent. Taureans have been dealing with emotional maturation for a minute, but while last month was more about a personal evolution, April puts the spotlights on relationships. Although all types of associations are under the microscope, Two of Blades lends itself toward more personal connections, matters of the heart. Something has shifted and things are changing between you and a significant other. It can go either way, the route is not determined. This thing is going to play out for a while, reaching clarity in the weeks following the Libra New Moon on October 8, 2018. Stick it out, observe, get the feelers out and develop a read on what is happening over the several months ahead.
Gemini - Five of Staffs: Twins, don’t budge, stand ground. Five of Staffs is a card of contention. It’s not easy to be vociferous in the execution of personal needs when doing so provokes confrontation, but this situation calls for that. April is an uncomfortable period of growth, with lots of balls in the air and countless opinions. Real talk, sometimes voicing your needs might rub people the wrong way, but this month, please don’t worry about that. The bigger issue is adapting to this impending major change. You’re in the last stage of bringing about epic transformation. Everything is more difficult when everything is changing. Victory is around the corner, but it’s important to feel the stress now to understand what you’re fighting for. Your full, authentic creative expression is worth the struggle.
Cancer - Four of Staffs: Crab, foundations are clearer than ever and joie de vivre for the future is restored. However, now that the core is exposed in no uncertain terms, things need to change and are changing, fast. Having so much evolution in a hurry is simultaneously soothing and disruptive. The passion is back and it’s igniting the establishment of excellence in a manner that was long forgotten, or even repressed, but anything incompatible with this passion is burning into ash. What a shock to see all of these long-established artifacts in your life burn to ember. And how exciting. If you don’t know what to do with yourself right now, that’s fine, just get comfortable with this tremendous surge of energy electrifying life again. The liveliness isn’t going away anytime soon. In April, it’s totally cool to just kick back and process this power return; you can figure out what to do with it later.
Leo - Five of Coins: Lion, someone’s feeling hard up and needs some help. This could be you or another person in your orbit. If it’s not money, then a physical ailment could blow into the picture, creating sadness and a sense of austerity. Isolation is another potential issue amplifying a depressed environment. Please reach out and lean on somebody, or be that shoulder for another. In April, it’s really important to extend a helping hand to whoever needs it most if you’re able or to find assistance if you’re the one in agony. No matter the level of difficulty, the fact is, Five of Coins highlights a weeks-long epoch of survival problems, be it pecuniary or physical. It WILL get better, but something requires better management. Find the assistance necessary in the weeks ahead to rectify the situation for good. Significant improvements arrive next month, between May 13-28.
Virgo - The Conjurer reversed: Virgin, obscurity abounds. The Conjurer reversed has magic, but isn’t applying it or doesn’t know what to do with it. The plan is foggy, making swift execution out of the question. The delay is more beneficial than anything, for the time being, however, this pause won’t last forever and April is one of the final months you have to really sit back and contemplate how to get this thing going. As outlined in the main forecast above, every human being is faced with a rethink on a path that has been walked so long, it’s become forgotten or even obsolete through mundane functionality. Wear and tear, it’s worn down. But humdrum weariness is not ordained for you. The best use of April is to sit with the ideal life you’d like to conjure up and to realize you are not an island. Get out there and discover new, exciting connections within the community that put you more in line with the true destiny outlined for your life by providence. Here’s the thing: the world needs you and your talents. Repressing your true nature does no one justice. Don’t be scared, do your thing. Get ready to experiment and explore.
Libra - The Shaman: Scales of Balance, you know what to do. The Shaman carries the secrets of millenia. In April, so do you. Rationalism needs to be muted for a while to allow intuition to name the game. There is knowledge within that never steers you wrong and in April it is time to rely on this pool of wisdom. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be faced with opportunities to transcend the same old mistakes you’ve made for many years. Temptations arise making you automatically tap into a thinking brain that got you in trouble in the past. By rationalizing why something needs to be done, even though it’s profoundly clear it is wrong and will lead to the same sh*tty situation(s) and trials you’ve already overcome, you have the potential to create unnecessary obstacles in the near future that you just don’t have time for. Avoid this by allowing your intuitive sensors to exclusively lead the way. Also, do you; don’t perform any extra duties for other people. Overextension, stretching limits to acquiesce to others’ needs in a way that depletes your own reserves, these are major temptations. Social interference can be problematic in April. Focus on yourself for the time being, augment your own spiritual strength.
Scorpio - Mama Blade: Scorpion, minutiae is your best friend in April. All the smallest details and exacting perspicacity is what Mama Blade brings out in the weeks ahead. Analysis and rational assessment is great, but you’ve got to keep it simple. Grand philosophical approaches are too broad, the gold is really all in the detail this month. Sounds like it could be boring, but it’s not, you out of literally everyone else on the planet have the best chance of getting your sh*t together to a tee throughout April. The levels of refinement on offer are impressive and worthy of full dedicated focus on the finer points. The psychological impact of this energy is also great, because you can see clearly, to the point, on a wide set of issues. Decision-making is so much easier thanks to the clarity and you’re unlikely to entertain any B.S.
Sagittarius - The Rider reversed: Centaur, life is unanchored. Core foundations are tossed up in the air, forcing a reevaluation of goals. This could play out in a number of ways on the mundane level, like moving house, or changing careers, the loss of a significant relationship, and all of these situations may amplify a sense of drifting into nowhere. The whole future is up for grabs again, but this time it’s not really exciting, because now you have to find yourself and figure out what the f**k you are doing. In the scheme of things, this is actually great though, because right now keeping it loose is truly the most divine path for you. Don’t put pressure on yourself to get the vision together in its entirety right now, stay adrift. Everything will start to come together when Jupiter goes direct on July 10, 2018, but won't really lift off until Jupiter transits into your sign of Sagittarius on November 8. Until then, consider options. There are many paths on offer, but maybe it’s not clear which one captures the most gusto. At least you’ve got a few months to evaluate before you set off on a dynamic course. Appreciate the pause, because you don’t want to bound forward on something that you will later regret spending so much time on.
Capricorn - The Emerging One: Goat, wow, what a broad new world. The Emerging One confirms you have stepped into a fresh realm of possibility, with endless opportunity to create. From May 15, 2018, when Uranus transits into Taurus, you’ve got eight years, through 2026, to become the most creative, innovative version of yourself. The magnitude of this creativity cannot be emphasized enough, it is HUGE, magnificent and unprecedented. The cool thing about this is that you’re not going to have to generate all of the inventiveness. Providence will provide the opportunities for you. This may have been distinct from the way you’ve operated for the better part of the past decade, where you have had to formally structure things, step by step, piece by piece, to the point where creativity was put on the backburner, behind the fulfillment of more important obligations. Creativity is important too and in just a few weeks time, you finally get to flex this underused muscle. Even if you’re a professional artist, your creative expression has not yet seen the heights your work will ascend to. But there’s a word of caution: don’t get overwhelmed. Just allow things to happen. Yes, there are loads of opportunities to do something different, but to reiterate, you do not have to generate these to take advantage of them. With Uranus in the mix, events will come to you, so don’t worry about seeking anything.
Aquarius - Three of Blades: Water Bearer, dang, you just keep being hit with these complex and contentious matters of the heart. Three of Blades confirms yet again an environment of heartbreak has emerged. No matter what is going on externally, killing it in career, having loads of fun with friends, etc., with personal, more internal matters, there is doom. If this doesn’t apply to you directly, then it does for sure with someone close in your circle. Three of Blades is associated with trios, like the mother-father-child and the lover-lover-lover. The card is also indicative of deceit or mean communications, like talking crap about someone, backstabbing, daytime talk show type of ratchet behavior. Ultimately though, Three of Blades is pain, it hurts, like getting the heart stabbed and ripped out. As this plays out, please maintain integrity. Be the light in this situation, the strong person with impeccable character and exemplary ethics. Uprightness benefits you here; it keeps the negativity from sticking or becoming a major hindrance in your daily life.
Pisces - Young Coin reversed: School of Fish, the new epoch commenced in March and now impatience has set in. Young Coin reversed suggests wanting to get things going, but having to wait, causing frustration. It’s like, what the f**k? But the delay is occurring to prevent leaping into the unknown in a reckless fashion. Consider all the details in April, you won’t be sorry for taking your time with this. Nothing is solid right now. Cause for regret is likely to put a deathgrip on situations dear to the heart if the entirety of the matter, down to the smallest triviality, is not fully processed. Keep taking in information, evaluating, assessing, until the whole thing solidifies later down the line. Everything is likely to firm up by the end of April through mid-May, so it’s just around the corner anyway. However, even when it does set in, it’ll take several months to mature, in fact, the whole year, until Capricorn season kicks in on December 22, so don’t rush it.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Redirect. Plans are changing, accept this as fact and don’t make yourself wrong for the alterations.
- Evaluate, but take note and move on. Literally every single life decision ever made might suddenly be front and center in awareness, causing pangs of guilt, regret and confusion. It happened. It might be a good exercise to imagine making a different decision and living out the life that would have manifested as a result of that choice in another world, a parallel universe. But the fact is, you are here now, and can’t go back to change the past. Evaluation and acceptance are the keys to getting through this cycle without going mad. No judgement though, a lot of us are going through it right now and equanimity may be lacking when reflecting on the past. It’s OK to cry a little bit or have other intense emotions, detachment just may not be possible all the time.
- Follow the passion. Changing course is sparking a lot of confusion, but the truth is present in passion. Boredom is a good indicator of what not to do, where not to go.
- Understand who you are; identify what events, persons or situations have shaped you. You’re a different person now; acknowledge and get comfortable with every transformed facet of yourself.
- Fires and heat will be an issue, but technological advances in energy are also likely to go down. Also watch as fire and technological advancement merge into some type of twisted inferno.
