The Water Oracle Monthly Horoscope
April 2019 Horoscope
This is when things get interesting
If 2019 is the beginning of a new story, we’re up to Chapter 4. It’s where the action really begins to pick up as the main character may need to make some quick decisions and possibly a leap of faith by the end of the chapter. We’re still not exactly sure where the story is headed, but that’s okay because things are definitely starting to get interesting.
In April, after the new moon on Friday the 5th, things will start to shift and stir. Aries energy is in full effect ushering us to move forward, to try a new approach, or just to take action period. The Universe is going to start delivering on what you’re focused on. What you’re focused on mind you, not what you’re wishing for. PLEASE bear that in mind. Your energy follows where your attention goes. The universe meets you where you concentrate your energy. Remember this. Right now, your attention needs to return to your goals. How important they are to you. How heartfelt and necessary they are for your well-being and happiness. Outside forces and pressures have recently collided with your plans. You’re being reminded of your responsibilities towards others. Perhaps feeling the pull to once again put the needs and expectations of others ahead of your own. You might be receiving a little push back from some of the people in your life who are making you feel selfish for wanting what you do. Guilt, shame and fear are soul eaters. They have no place and no role in the present or future you. Continue to move forward with grace. When your intentions are to be the best version of yourself, or to cultivate joy and happiness within your life, only you know what that looks like. You can care and love the people around you and still care and love yourself. Perhaps some of the people around you need to be reminded of that. Your wanting for you does not lessen your love for them. Replace your guilt, shame or fear with compassion. When we desire change it may upset the people around us. That is their own fear being stirred up. Those are feelings they need to sort through on their own. All you’re responsible for are your own feelings and actions. Understand that others may be afraid of your decision because they do not know how it may affect them. Listen to their concerns and then respond with compassion, not guilt. Wanting what’s best for yourself is not wrong or selfish, it is simply self-preservation. We need to work on ourselves and for ourselves first. Affix life’s oxygen mask to yourself first. Breathe deep and then help others once you know you are all right.
This week under this waning moon and soon new moon, the time is ripe for you to release the guilt, shame, fear or doubt that has bubbled to the surface. These are the ingredients of self-sabotage. Stop letting outside influences manipulate your decisions. Get a grip on your emotions and siphon off the ones that are no longer congruent with your goals. It’s definitely time to regroup, reaffirm what you want for yourself and focus. I want you to try to empty your consciousness of what you think will happen and what other people’s expectations are. For now, just do. Just be. Think about your highest good and focus there. The actions you take this month are important.
>>In newness there is trepidation. In the beginning there is confusion and uncertainty. These are simple truths at the start of anything, especially anything of consequence. If you’re feeling this way know that that’s normal. What is also normal is the feeling of isolation. When we are embarking on something new, there is a tendency to feel separate from others. Imagine you are a branch of a tree, stretching beyond your neighboring branches and limbs. When you look out straight ahead towards the unknown you may think you are all alone out there. However, if you looked down you’d see that you are still a part of the tree. It's all perspective. The feeling of isolation is an illusion, and a temporary one at that. This too shall pass as they say. Take that time out there on your branch to get your head straight because decision making is right around the corner.
Aries energy right now is moving like a swift current. So, hold tight because the universe is going to start sending you options, ideas and opportunities. Some will be inline with that you desire, some will not. Be weary and discerning. Everything is a gut check. How does this make me feel? Maire Kondo it a little, meaning does is spark joy? Are you excited or intrigued by what’s being presented? If you don’t experience some rush to the senses over it, my instinct would be that it’s not for you.
By the full moon on the 19th it feels like a lot of the tension that we entered the month with has dissipated. Most of the pressure is off and anxiety has decreased. This will allow for you to have a keener sense of what is happening and where things are headed because you will have some much-needed clarity. In fact, it seems that by the end of the month you’ll be able to see a few steps ahead, allowing for you to actually make a plan. Some of you may actually find exactly what you have been looking for. Some of you will receive the break or the lead you need. While others will find that they finally have the ideas or the creative flow they’ve been trying to find, finally coming through. April will be a month to expect some kind of breakthrough. There’s a little bit of unpredictability in the air. It’s likely that some events will take place that are like lightning bolt strikes. So, a little excitement is in store too. Believe in magic and magic will find you. My hope is that we will no longer be out there just waiting and winging it but onto something, even if it’s just the next step to take forward into May.
Be happy and well! - Stacey
