APRIL HOROSCOPES 2020 | MULTI-PASSIONATE CREATIVE | ASTROLOGY
Enjoy this monthly installment from Alexandria Rollet, our Resident Astrologer inside the Joi Knows How Collective!
I hope Aries season has started to show you some answers regarding where you can start taking more initiative and inspired action.
But if not…that’s totally okay!
We are in such an unprecedented time right now (during Covid-19) that I’d like to remind you that there is no right way to be, no right way to handle what’s going on, and if it doesn’t feel right to take action at the moment, listen to that.
I know there’s a ton of stuff out there right now vying for your attention, telling you how to cope, telling you what to think and what to feel.
I’m not going to do that here.
Yes, astrology can be one of those tools that we cling onto in times like a global pandemic to help make some sense of what’s going on. However, if we cling to it too tightly, we could unknowingly sacrifice our ability to self-govern. To me, it feels like what would serve you best in this moment from this astrological report is a pared-down message that focuses on the basic essentials and can give you a little somethin’ somethin’ to give you a sense of direction in this unknown.
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, to the point, in an effort to put your minds a little more at ease. Onward…
On April 7th, we will have a Full Moon in Libra to help balance out this self-centric, Aries energy. The Libra Full Moon comes in to make you think about the other side of the coin, the other side of the zodiac, the Others in your life. It reminds us that we aren’t the only ones on this planet and we must learn how to play nice with others.
A helpful practice for this potent time is to, first, sit with your Aries energy (we all have all the signs in our astrological charts somewhere) and dialogue with it to understand your relationship with leadership, autonomy, and being true to yourself.
Second, make note of your most important relationships. These could be ANY kind of relationship, the main thing is that they are important to you. Then dialogue with yourself about your ability to remain autonomous within those relationships.
A few helpful questions to ask yourself to get these dialogues started are:
Third, release any behaviors or actions that are not serving you or the relationships you are in. Yes, this might even mean releasing a relationship altogether, but it doesn’t have to be that extreme. It could look like setting clear boundaries, working on removing your tendency to apologize for everything, or anything that is keeping you disempowered and small.
To support you in this Full Moon, below is a sweet note about a unique gift you can give others based on your Sun sign. Add them to your Pinterest or screenshot to save to your phone! If you want to look up your rising sign as well, enter your birth chart info to a website like astro.com or an app like co-star.
On April 19th, Taurus season comes in and gives us a sense of support and gives us a foundation to stand on.
Taurus is very concerned about creating security and comfort in our lives. Because of this, we may find ourselves putting our heads down and doing the work as that is a way to help us feel safe and secure.
If you’re feeling a bit weary right now (who isn’t?) the Taurus energy can support you through routine and staying steady through an established plan. The plan doesn’t have to be big and elaborate. In fact, Taurus values simplicity.
Speaking of “values”, now that you’ve gone through the Aries season that asks you to empower yourself, the Taurus season asks you to build upon that and get very clear on your values. This is a GREAT way to work with the Taurus New Moon coming up on April 22nd.
Take this New Moon as an opportunity to analyze your current values and make adjustments where necessary. Or, maybe you don’t have clear values set right now. That’s okay!
This is a wonderful time to establish your values whether this practice is totally new to you or not.
The idea is to come up with somewhere between 5 and 10 keywords that deeply resonate with you that will help guide you in your life. These can be profoundly helpful when making decisions.
If you don’t know where to start, I like to make this exercise fun by grabbing a book and flipping to random pages and blindly placing a finger on the page. Then, I will hold that word in my mind’s eye and see what comes up. Maybe it’s the perfect word already for a value I hold dear! Or maybe it spurs a thought to a different word that can be translated into a value.
I do this until I have around 10 value words written down and then I categorize them into Primary Values and Secondary Values.
Here are my primary and secondary values as an example to help you along your path. They’re a mix of words that I thoroughly enjoy embodying, as well as words that I’m striving to embody.
I’m SUPER excited about this additional segment of these energy reports! In each report, I’ll add one or two days that could potentially be the most creative days of the month and I’ll explain the likely way you might experience that creativity.
For April, we will see heightened creativity on the 3rd and the 6th/7th.
On the 3rd, Mercury and Neptune will perfectly align together in Pisces. If you are a Pisces, you will likely feel this energy strongly. This is a great day for intuitive visioning, letting messages drop in, and explore creative writing.
It’s not the best day to work out details in your creations, though. This day is best suited for letting your imagination run wild!
The evening of April 6th, moving into the morning of April 7th, we will see a lovely connection between the Moon and Venus. You may have recognized these dates because the 7th is when the Full Moon will occur. So, in the time leading up to the Full Moon, the Libra Moon will connect well with the Gemini Venus so that you can get creative with aesthetics.
The Libra energy adores beauty and craves everything to be aesthetically pleasing. When it pairs up with the Gemini Venus, we will experience energy that wants to try on all the options to see what sticks. Let those ideas flow without feeling too attached to the success of any of them!
Thanks for reading this April Astrological Energy Report! I’ll see you next month for out May Astrology update.
