April Energy Insight
The beginning of April is an ideal time to press pause, take a deep breath, and see how far you’ve come. March brought up very unexpected and emotionally-charged challenges and situations, so before depleting yourself by racing on to the next mile marker, allow yourself to honestly and graciously acknowledge exactly where you are. If you’re feeling shaky or insecure, know that it’s just temporary.
Despite what we’ve energetically experienced in the past month, we’re not entirely in the clear, so reach deep and draw on your mental discipline and spiritual focus to carry you. If you’ve pushed either of these practices to the back burner, now is a good time to reconnect and re-engage.
Around the middle of the month we will come into an energy that calls for rational thought and analytical assessment in emotional situations. This is all about letting yourself see things for what they are without contributing to a story you may have created around something in the past.
Use this energy to your advantage by bringing forth a diplomatic point of view to help others expand their perception of what’s happening in their lives, but don’t get too tied up in a feeling of responsibility to force someone to see something they’re not ready to accept. As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t force him to drink.
Towards the end of the month, we experience a lighter energy primed for you to savor in your accomplishments and all the good you have in your life. May feels like it is going to be a very fast, busy, and action-oriented time, so let this be a bookend of the pause you take in the first week or two of the month. This energy is also centered on the self and a strong feeling of independence, so use this period to think about specific things you can do to set yourself up for success in new projects, ideas, and endeavors on the horizon.
Challenge: Although it’s necessary, you may struggle to clearly see the fruits of your labor. Be aware of any resistance that comes up with this and don’t ignore what is in front of you.
Opportunity: While this month isn’t about action, there is certainly space for new ideas and creative energy that will serve as the foundation for fresh starts in May. Take note!
