Hello lovely ones and welcome to April 2017!
April is the first calendar month of the astrological new year which started with the sun moving into Aries and was officially marked by the subsequent New Moon in Aries on March 27th.
This month we each have the ability to determine the outcome of our 2017.
Regardless of how our year has played out so far, what we do this month can change the rest of our year.
Some of us may need to press the reset and restart button.
Some may need to adjust their sails in order to steer in a different direction.
Others may need to simply maintain the momentum of the path they are on.
Regardless of where each of us are in our journey, the theme for this month is bravery.
With the sun shining in Aries for most of this month, (whatever our zodiac sign) the focus is on each of us and our identities and our role in this world.
This April we are asked to own the autonomous values we identified last month (see March’s cosmic update) and live by them.
By doing so we will be truly autonomous (Aries) and will also experience true liberation.
However, everything has a price.
The cost here is the immense courage required in both our thoughts and actions.
As always fear (aka the ego) may creep in.
But we must remember that to be courageous does not necessarily mean that we don’t feel fear, but rather that we have decided that something else is more important than that fear – our soul’s fulfillment, which ultimately will be for our highest good and the greater good.
This month as we navigate a bumpy ride in the cosmos we need to hold onto our values, our truth and our brave hearts.
By living in alignment with all of these we can birth a brave new world for 2017 and beyond.
As always I will write more detailed posts on Instagram and blogs for both the new and full moons.
