My NEW Path is Illuminated by the Light of Truth.
I can see my destiny unfolding.
As we all experience this cosmic rebirth,
a new path and a new life begins!
Do not be afraid - It's only change
Meditation for APRIL 2020
CHANGE IS A COMING—BUT YOUR LIFE CAN MAKE ALL THINGS NEW
As you accept with patience and surrender the difficulties you encounter throughout life on a daily basis, so will you find flowing into you through the Crown Chakra, a light or life-force which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.
If you direct the right thoughts to those around you, and begin to put the action of the Law of Love in front of any circumstances you may find yourself in, you will find that these troubles and upsets will gradually smooth themselves out. Events will begin to work more harmoniously for you and you will begin to feel, "God is very good to me." You will begin to realize that within you, as you practice your daily meditations, there is a power building, a feeling of Love, which is helping you actively. This will guide you towards the desired balance of Love, Peace and Harmony within your heart.
This glow within your heart which brings to you such sweet happiness and joy may remain for a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days - and then may disappear. Never fear for slowly this power and gratitude will increase in you. As your life continues, you will experience this renewing energy more often, for you are Ascending up a spiral of light and vibration which will eventually bring you, as a Daughter or Son of God, into the kingdom of eternal light and bliss.

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The SUN has entered AIRES
Symbolized by the Ram, Aries initiates the energies following the Vernal Spring Equinox. Regardless of your personal Sun-sign, play the role of the pioneer and chieftain, the leader in unknown waters, as Aries represents. Imagine yourself to be a seed in the ground of Spring, sprouting as a dynamic vessel of life, reaching upward to absorb the powerful rays of the sun. Spontaneity, assertion, and a great love of adventure are natural expressions of Aries. However, steer clear of immaturity, selfishness, and reckless pursuits. Aries is the first of the three Fire Signs, with a flair for the dramatic, but fatigue and rushed energies can extinguish even the strongest flame. Remember that energy and persistence and a progressive spirit can unlock the magical creativity of your mind.
The good news, Aries, is this will be a good but life-changing year. Unfortunately, it may take until year's end for everything to come together, which is sure to try your limited patience. The career path you make this year will continue to influence your life and stay with you for many years to come. This effort will reach its peak seven to ten years from now. Remember at this time we are all learning from each other.
RUNE of the Month - Nauthiz
Constraint—Necessity - Pain
The necessity of learning to deal with severe constraint is the lesson of Nauthiz. This rune represents the obstacles we create for ourselves as well as those we encounter in the world around us. Both can be equally difficult to handle.
The role of Nauthiz is to identify and handle our shadow areas, places where our growth is stunted, resulting in weakness of character, which we project negatively onto others. Try not to take so much of this world personally, this Rune is saying to us. Work with your Shadow, examine what inside you magnetizes misfortune into your life. When you are able to look upon this Rune and smile, you will be able to identify the troubles, denials and setbacks of life as your guides, teachers, and developers.
The need for restraint is unquestionable in the month of April, 2020. This Rune has put everyone on notice that there will be holdups, delays, disappointments, reasons to consider all of your plans and actions carefully. Remember this: your dissatisfaction is not unreasonable, because there is work to be done on yourself. Please take it all in good will and show perseverance.
This is a time to pay off old debts, to restore if not harmony with your loved ones, at least a balance within you. So talk it through, mend, restore, re-address. When fishermen cannot go to sea, they repair their nets. Let the constraints of time serve you in righting your relationship to your Self, which is the outer reflection of your Soul. Be mindful that rectification must come before progress. Once again you are asked to consider the uses of adversity.
When something within us is disowned, that which is disowned reeks havoc. A cleansing is required here. In undertaking this challenge for growth, you will strengthen your will and character. Begin with what is difficult and proceed to that which is easy. Remember that suffering in its original sense simply meant undergoing or inner healing. Now you are required to undergo the dark side of your passage. To control your anger, to restrain your instincts, to keep your faith firm—these are the issues of April, 2020. Modesty and good temper are the essential blessings of such a time.
As a part of the cycle of Self-Transformation, Nauthiz is the great teacher, disguised as the bringer of pain and limitations. It has been said that only at the point of great darkness do we become aware of the Light within us by which we come to recognize the true creative power of the Self.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

Armor all my boundaries,
Teach me my shields,
Reflect all the hurt,
So I will not yield.
Armadillo wears its armor on its back, its medicine a part of its body. Its boundaries of safety are a part of its total being. Armadillo can roll into a ball and never be penetrated by enemies.
What a gift it is to set your boundaries so that harmful words or intentions just roll off. Your lesson is in setting up what you are willing to experience. If you do not wish to experience feeling invaded, just call on Armadillo.
A clue to how to proceed is to make a circle on a piece of paper and see it as a medicine shield. In the body of the shield, write all that you desire to have, do, or experience. Perform this ritual before the New Moon on December 24th if you can. Be sure to include all that you love and things that bring you joy. This is called setting a condition. This will set up boundaries for you, and will allow only these chosen experiences to be a part of your life. These boundaries become a shield that wards off all things which are undesirable to you. The shield reflects what you are and what your will is to others on an unconscious level. Outside of the shield you may put what you are willing to experience by invitation only. An example would be a visit by a long lost relative, or criticism from friends, or people asking for handouts.
Armadillo waddles into April's Aries energies. It is time to define your space. You may have been too willing to allow your home to become a bus station. You may find that you cannot say no, even when you know that you will have to cancel other plans to be obliging. This routine can get old in a hurry!
It may be time to ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I honoring the time I need for my personal enjoyment?
- Do others treat me like a doormat?
- Why do I always get upset when I'm taken for granted?
- Is there a reason for my being a "yes" person?
All of the answers to these questions relate to setting up boundaries. They help to show what you will do and what you won't do. They show what is comforting and comfortable to you, and what is not. How you react in any circumstance has to do with your ability to become objective and tune into the environment and to others. You cannot be objective if you cannot tell where the other person's personality stops and where yours begins. If you have set no boundaries, you become a sponge. It will seem as if all of the feelings in a room full of people are yours. Ask yourself if you are really feeling depressed or if this feeling really belongs to the person you are talking to? Then allow Armadillo's armor to slice in-between, giving you back your sense of self.

STARGAZING FOR APRIL, 2020
The April 7th Full Moon in Libra brings some hidden matters into the Light. It’s the best time to bring personal and business relationships to a successful conclusion. This year the April Full Moon is a bit tricky, because of a Mars/Uranus square that brings accidents, violence as well as sudden and unpleasant terminations and/or separations.
The April 22nd New Moon in Taurus brings a quiet reflective time to guide and help you to find the best path to untie any knots the latest Sun-Saturn square may have thrown your way. Take time to meditate and “set your conditions” for success.
ARIES: Polarity: MASCULINE Sign: CARDINAL - Element: FIRE – Planetary Rule: 1st House /Mars – Head and Face and Brain - FOCUS: I want!
The Personal Signs:
April brings a sigh of relief and things are back to normal. Normal? Oh my, you need to formulate a new normal because both you and your reality have changed. You can’t just take action. You have to focus and make it count and be meaningful. Find ways to connect with others for information, guidance and support. This will enrich you on an emotional level. You find it’s not enough to climb up the ladder anymore. You need a vision of what your work means and how it impacts you.
As April opens, you are slowly finding your way back to center even though you’re still on that rollercoaster ride. This brings you a sense of security as you discover that the principles you once lived by haven’t changed one bit. This revelation helps you to see that much of what you thought was of value is actually a belief or preference, and those don’t always stand the test of time. You are beginning to create a new world for yourself.
. In April the emotional pains you’ve been hiding from is coming forth to be released. Feel them and let them go. Otherwise they have the potential of destroying that which you desire. The most important thing for you now is to become the observer. Don’t allow yourself to get dragged into uncomfortable situations. You could start reverting into your old patterns. This hard work seems to be getting worse every day but don’t run for the hills. Your goal now is to stay present in the moment as well as to remain detached. You can do it Gemini.
In April you feel like running as fast as you can, but don’t sense you’re getting anywhere. Your inner urge to move is overshadowing the direction you’ve set for yourself. Slow down a bit and focus. The key is to focus and combine this energy surge with a concrete target, then go from there. Refrain from making any decisions about your career, your career and most of all your money. April isn’t the time to make any demands or requests.
. In April you find that the feeling of urgency that’s been with you all year has finally dissipates, leaving a huge empty space inside. What to do? Just let it be, Leo. Take a deep breath and relax. The time to create something will arrive soon enough. The Universe is giving you a well deserved break!
. April brings relief as you experience a release of burdens that you didn’t know you had. As you feel a sense of liberation, don’t try to analyze anything because the only thing that matters right now is that you feel light and free. You really want to have a party and it’s been quite awhile since you’ve felt like having fun. Don’t let this moment pass. Just invite friends over and have a great time!
In April, no matter what you do, you’ll feel as if you’re on the edge of a precipice. That’s because the desire of where you want to go and where your fear thinks you should stay plays out in your relationships. 2020 offers you the chance to let go of the need to get people to see the world through your eyes. Just be the role model for who you are inside and what you know. Then, let other’s take care of themselves.
April shows you that your desire for freedom suddenly makes everything seem dull and dusty and without merit. Use this desire as fuel to find ways to change that which needs to be changed, while preserving anything that is supportive to you and where you want to go. The bloom seems to be off the rose this month. All the accolades you received last month for a job well done left you with the awareness that you aren’t quite as content with your current position as you wanted to believe. Time to have some gratitude and accept that. The decision you are making to create a new purpose for your life is right!
April brings a huge emotional release as the chaos and all the clouds leave your life, bringing you a new infusion of enthusiasm and zest for life. It’s time to dig down and get serious about your purpose and intention. You know it’s the next step in creating long lasting satisfaction as well as a part of a new definition of the kind of legacy you want to leave behind.
April brings you some inner doubts. Is this change really god for me? That’s because you still want to control how it all happens. Close your eyes and take a deep breath, Cap., and trust yourself to trust the Universe as to how it all unfolds and know that your choices and actions will bring you growth.
April brings you a return of confidence following an intense beginning of the month. You have felt a fear that you’re trapped because you’re unable to free yourself from a number of things haunting you from the past. Just when you feel as if you’re drowning, something shifts deep inside of you. You feel relief and are absolutely joyful! It feels like you’ve flipped a switch. This sets your path for a remarkable new beginning.
April brings you a fast ride, as you realize quickly that lifelong patterns that have restricted you, undermined you, and robbed you of self-confidence have been left in the dust. You’re bursting at the seams with delight! This moment has been a long time coming. You can now show everyone exactly what you are made of, with all of the flame of fire and creativity living in your Soul.
