The main theme for April is “ALL ABOUT POWER”.
The very recent new moon in Aries has set up a field that is a marker for the field day we have been experiencing around power issues both individually and on a global scale.
If you have been recently triggered by something that caused either a reaction or a memory of feeling powerless, you have a great opportunity to heal, forgive and reset in a way that connects you back to your true source of power so that it becomes available to you in its fullest form. In other words, it is time to do the personal work that is necessary to move beyond the limitation you impose on yourself by remaining in reaction instead of moving to pro-action.
Power issues we are working with this month are many. They will hit relationships, work environments, your health, creativity, ability to manifest, relationship between the masculine and the feminine (externally and internally), past trauma and disappointments and any ways you have experienced a loss of power in the past. The energies this month will bring up issues around choice and responsibility and what is needed to move beyond the reaction and into a proactive position moving forward.
This is a month where the highs, those vibrations of light, beauty, expansion, connection and feelings of great abundance without limitation, are very high, and the lows of depression, despair, disappointment, anger, blame and a determination to get revenge, are very low. You may have times where you experience both in the same day or even in the same hour. We must be willing to do the work and to expand our container to hold both with neutrality and compassion. If you can stay in a higher vibration of light most of the time or at least go there quickly when you feel yourself sliding south, your month will play out better than you could imagine.
It is a tricky month to navigate as it will take trusting your intuition rather than your reactive mind to know what is yours and what belongs to someone else that simply wants you to join their pity party. Don’t play. This is an incredible time where the opportunity to bring in miracles and magic is strong. But if you are mired in your position of being victimized in any way, that energy may not be available to you. So, do the work, stay in your own lane, take responsibility, watch your power leaks, and look to the aspects of your life that will give you power instead of deplete your reserves.
What is the definition of true power? Power comes from spirit and your essence and is fed and supported by the elements and energies more powerful than you such as the sun, the earth, nature, the stars, your imagination etc. You can be empowered or allow yourself to be disempowered through a trauma, karma or lessons, but another person cannot truly give or take away your power as they cannot ever truly give you any. True power is something no one can take from you and is not connected to anything you can lose. You can lose your money, things, homes, reputation, relationships, physical body parts, even your health. But you can never take away your spirit, experiences, wisdom, medicine, talents, dreams and intentions. They are yours and yours only and are part of your power base. Requiring acceptance or attention from others does not build power. With that said, however, true community and unconditional connection is a wonderful way to feel your own power in giving and receiving.
Where in your life have you felt disempowered? How can you take responsibility for that? Where have you given your power away? What experiences have empowered you? And where have you expected to gain power that was not authentic?
We have all been imprinted with an idea and belief of power as being related to accomplishments that can be measured. Influence, money, degrees, notoriety, fame, attention, accumulation of wealth etc., have long been a part of the measuring stick that may have influenced our dreams and intentions and had us looking in the wrong direction to gain power. Success can mean a lot of things. Successfully navigating a challenging set of personality traits or successfully handing a challenging karmic situation is a good example of what builds power.
The key is to access the power within you and not to look for it on the outside. You will only be disappointed with the illusion in the end. If you don’t do the work now, it will be that much harder later when the energy is less supportive of it. We have a tremendous opportunity to move through this and access the amazing landscape of love. Beauty and manifestation on the other side.
How the month shows up:
Responsibility and growth are the themes for how this month shows up personally. It is great month to come out of hiding behind your addictions, blame, and ways you have been asleep or distracted by glamour and illusion, and to do the work, whatever that is for you. As we mentioned, miracles and magic are available if you are available to them. Don’t let your mind get in the way with any limiting beliefs about what is possible or not possible. But as long as you are holding yourself or anyone else hostage and in debt for old wounds and past behaviors, you are not available for the expansion of havingness that will manifest those miracles and magic.
Forgive yourself and others for anything you are still holding on to. The debt carried by not doing so is a big power leak and will keep you from moving forward and reclaiming the power that is trapped in your reactions. People are all over the map these days and it is best to stay in your own lane. Remember you can guide and lead others to connect with what might help them but you can never do the work for someone else. In the same way, do not expect someone else to do your work for you. This is taking full responsibility for your part in creating whatever now needs to be forgiven, rebalanced, reclaimed and reset. We all have the power, more than we might believe. So invite it, nurture it, and use it wisely.
This is a tricky one as relationships this month are fraught with projection, blame, and expectation. We recommend staying in your own lane but with kindness and compassion. And, remember that even though a community member, partner or beloved family member is suffering and expecting you to “help” them out, you can guide, hold their hand, be there for them, but they have to do the work.
In these times, there is a sorting of sorts and a migration of like-minded people that wish to be closer to those that are on the same page. This is so for all maturity levels and will greatly influence leadership, laws, legislature and the flavor of different locations on the planet as to how it feels to live there. Those who have been putting up with or living uncomfortably with those not on the same page will be inspired to seek out new relationships that are more aligned and perhaps even change locations to support their own comfort level.
There is an opportunity this month to migrate closer to those that feel like “tribe” and to eliminate contact with those that are not but have been seen as important contacts for external power. However, if you’re cutting someone or something loose, do it with gratitude, kindness and compassion.
HEALTH AND THE PHYSICAL BODY
The body is uncomfortably going through it as it has been for the last several months in an attempt to keep up with energetic changes in vibration. We are in an accelerated process of assimilation of emotional and instinctive material, some of which has been shelved for a very long time. Reactions, illnesses, shifts in energy levels, overwhelm, stress and strange altered states can come on unexpectedly and we are still tuned to the fear base generated by the COVID pandemic.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to clean out the instinctive center and keep clearing your energy field with sage, sacred tobacco, cedar smoke or anything else you find works. Drinking lots of water is always a healthy way to make sure the pipes are as clean as they can be as well. The body is in hyper survival mode but will definitely respond to self-care as well as your committed intentions for improvement. Listening to it is key as well as allowing it to be slower in getting on board with the accelerated growth and higher frequencies. Take special care of the kidneys, liver and spleen. If you are having excessive digestive problems that were not there before, you may be trying to digest energy that does not belong to you. Stay in your own lane.
Moving the body and exercise is also important this month as the energy is fiery, active and quick to react.
BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS AND PROJECTS
It’s a great time to start something new but it is a better time to finish a project or tackle what is already on your plate with renewed enthusiasm and perhaps an updated plan. If you have been waiting for right timing on a new project, the time may be now and you will know it if everything about it is effortless. If you need to finish something that has been sluggish, the support may open up to do this effortlessly and easily. Pay attention to your intuition and watch impulsiveness that is not grounded. Be careful with investments and make sure your guidance about spending is coming from the right place.
Partnerships or business structures that are not balanced in their power distribution will go through growing pains. If this is you, approach the challenge with humility and an authentic willingness to bring what is out of balance back into balance. Projects started from the wrong foundation and motivation can potentially fail. Make sure your ego is out of the way and that you are not in competition or needing to prove anything. These times can be ruthless but rewarding at the same time. Because of great action and expansion themes, you have the opportunity to raise your havingness on many levels. Remember: Miracles and magic!
We could see some rocking and rolling in earth movement this month. Structures and anything solid are subject to being shaken loose so they can change and nature always tends to support what is needed by humans. Intense times are often reflected by intense weather and climate phenomena for the greatest impact and shake up forcing flexibility, innovation and spontaneous change. We have been, and will be for a long while, in the process of breaking down the old structures of thought, belief and hierarchical containers that no longer support where we are headed as a global community.
Cooperation is what builds power now and service is the glue that pulls people together. If we have natural “disasters”, in the big picture they serve as opportunities for evolution. So be flexible and willing to accept the power that nature offers, be it a wind storm, a water event, an earthquake or a volcanic eruption.
As to your own personal environment, it is still focused on decluttering consciously the things that don’t serve you in your daily life, and being aware of the importance of beauty as a way to raise your vibration.
DATES AND TIME FRAMES
April 1: New Moon in Aries is Friday, April 1 at 12:34 AM Mountain Daylight Time. (MDT). The most recent New Moon has definitely set the foundation for working with power as we look to a new cycle, new commitments and new goals. Think of what you can improve, how best you can show up, and where the work is for you to do this month. Your intention should be to raise your vibration and align with whatever comes with that higher consciousness.
April 1-7: This is a time of reflection and integration of the field the new moon has put into place. It is a good week to ask the questions of yourself around your own power and power issues. Some answers will be clear, others still in process. It helps to be present and observing of what triggers you and how you handle your reactions. At the same time, since we are still in the field of this new moon in Aries, it is an opportune time to set yourself on a new course.
Even if you are still grappling with personal issues and don’t believe you have what it takes to be on that new course, set it anyway. This is a time where you need to bring in your support, re-engage with your community, be heard, and trust that your intentions and prayers if they come from an authentic place have no reason not to manifest. Get used to the ups and downs. Navigating the middle with neutrality is much like walking a tightrope. You may fall, but if you don’t, there is an exhilarating sense of power in the accomplishment.
April 8-15: This could be a challenging time for some especially around your relationships. Watch projection from others and watch yourself that you are not projecting your own discomfort or pain onto someone else. Remember it takes two to tango so always ask yourself, what is my responsibility in this situation? You can recapitulate by going back and back and back into your youth, childhood, even past lives to perhaps get to the root of when you formed a pattern that keeps repeating itself. Great compassion and forgiveness for self first, and then for others will always put you in the position of being proactive.
If you feel defensive about something, take a breath and move into a place of neutrality before you respond. The big picture is important here and you may need to remind yourself daily about your true purpose of being on this planet. Are you being a walking blessing? Are you living in beauty? Are you seeing everything as spirit?
This work is BIG and don’t be afraid to ask for help, from your guides and allies, both human and of spirit.
April 16: Full Moon in Libra is Saturday, April 16 at 12:55PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). More on this full moon will be sent as an update to our Power Path email list. (sign up here)
April 16-23: We get some good help here as the energy softens a little and allows us a bit of breathing room for being inspired and uplifted by progress instead of the pedal to the metal on the growth train. Support comes, creativity opens up and you begin to see the results of your hard work. The time inspires change and you welcome the clarity around finally being able to act purposefully instead of dealing with your reactions. If you have cleared enough, forgiven enough, and opened yourself up to a new experience, all the gifts will show up at your door.
There is relief as we wake up feeling better and better, and finally those who have not been able to sleep can get some rest.
But, don’t get complacent. The work goes on and we are not at the top of the mountain yet. This is a rest stop. Refortified with new inspiration, creativity and support, you are ready to keep moving with intention and a proactive determination.
April 24-30: The theme word for this time frame is “grounded spontaneity”. Watch for illusion and self-deception during this time. When in doubt, ask a friend to give you a reality check. The times are expanded and imagination has some freedom to move beyond limiting beliefs and concepts. However, you still need to be aware of going so far out that it makes no sense in the physical world you are living in.
Have some fun this week, and bring in the fields of humor and play. They will serve you well when we are hit with the intensity of the eclipse cycle beginning at the end of the month. Connect with your community and set yourself up for some really good support when and if you need it.
April 30: New Moon with a partial solar eclipse is Saturday, April 30 at 2:28 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). More on this extremely powerful New Moon and eclipse will be sent as a Power Path New Moon update (click here to join our mailing list)
