Esoteric Spiritual Horoscope for April by Aluna Michaels, M.A
Aries (March 21 – April 19) — Happy birthday Aries! You’ll have many hard-won victories at work! Your career can skyrocket in ways you’ve been striving for, and perhaps even gave up on. Be enthusiastic, but also get focused on new goals you can set now that these doors have opened for you. Plan action steps and do them so you can continue your ascent to greatness! Also, take affirmations seriously. Pick two or three that resonate and make them your mantras.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) — No matter how hard you may be struggling, keep up with your meditation or spiritual practice. Be mindful of negative messages you’re playing in your head. You don’t have to believe everything you think! Challenge your thoughts and ponder positive alternative outcomes. Ironically, you’re doing far better than you think in many areas of your life and feedback is coming soon that put your worries to rest! But feeling your value from the inside is even more valuable, right?
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) — You can be starting a new relationship as Venus moves into your sign! Make sure you can communicate deeply with this person, and not just focusing on having “stuff in common”. Your capacity for intimacy is increasing and you need a partner who reflects that. Try activities and hobbies that have always fascinated you. This leads to new friends (and maybe that new love!) Dedicate yourself to a meditation or spiritual practice and stick with it, even if it “bores” you after awhile. Boredom is a signal you’re on the verge of a breakthrough!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) — Saturn changes signs, helping you heal shame and self-criticism! Cultivate self-compassion. Practice forgiveness toward yourself and others, while maintaining healthy boundaries. Relationships are going to deepen, and ones that don’t you will have the courage to release. You can meet people who act as inspirational guides. You’ll also have insights into ways you self-sabotage in terms of finances!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) — Saturn moves into Aquarius for almost three years, helping you solidify relationships. Meditate on your values and the type of person you wish to attract. If partnered, see how your principles line up together and talk about creating more coherence in those areas. You’ll also have breakthroughs in your health, especially if you’ve had allergies, eating binges or have been sleeping poorly. Reach out to friends who make you laugh and lift your spirits. Plan fun activities with them!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) — As Saturn moves into Aquarius for about three years, pay attention to your health, but in a new way! You’re up on the latest supplements and health gadgets, but how about praising your body for her strengths rather than focusing on her deficiencies? Discipline yourself to enjoy your embodiment, while of course making choices that support your vitality. Relationships will flourish. Your mood will improve. Connecting with joy will be your best medicine!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) — Reconnect with your spiritual practice, or refresh it if you feel uninspired. Do what you love and make it a meditation. Dance! Make art! Be in nature! Take a bath with scented oils! Explore the areas where you have blocks to pleasure and set out to dismantle those obstacles. Let loved ones know what you discover so they can remind you when you “pleasure sabotage” yourself! Also, build bridges with family members with whom you’ve had rifts or disconnectedness.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) — This month you can really heal issues of betrayal and be able to trust more! Remember that what you focus on grows, and as a Scorpio, it’s easy to replay negative memories. Meditate to release the poison of resentment, while retaining the wisdom gained from life challenges. You’ll attract people who are more trustworthy, and be able to deepen your capacity for intimacy and joy! You can also meet a new friend at work who really “gets” you!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) — To improve relationships, meditate on your values. Then make a list prioritizing the qualities your need in a partner. If single, this will help draw a new persons who “fits your bill”. If already connected, this will open communication to create better alignment between you. You can also have major breakthroughs with finances! You’ll also be able to prioritize material goals so you can plan wisely and make clear steps to materialize your dreams.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) — Focus your meditations on abundance! It is spiritual to tap into the finances, joy and “good stuff” that are set aside just for you! Open your mind to receive and everything will flow in. You’re not taking from others . . . you’re opening up your own divine storehouse! Also, speak positive, loving and encouraging words to your body to improve your health and also your body image. Look for the beauty and miracles of your physical form and you’ll find them!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) — Saturn has moved into your sign for an almost three year stay. It’s a time to begin examining your values and setting goals that align with them. As you meditate and live mindfully, you’ll see you have more inner resources than you previously thought! Be on the look out for “coincidences” that are actually spiritual synchronicity. Don’t be afraid to dream big in all areas of your life, and follow intuitive promptings that will lead to their manifestation!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – It’s time to clean your subconscious of all sorts of limiting ideas. Meditate on the roots of these fearful, resentful or negative beliefs. You’ll feel so unburdened as you forgive the difficult experiences, while retaining the wisdom gained. Also look at your diet or lifestyle choices to see what could be causing sleep disturbances, anxiety or depression. (Even toxic chemicals in cleaning or beauty products??) Be sure to connect with positive, spiritually centered friends to supply you with inspiration and fun!
