Venus may have moved into Pisces but it’s unlikely the long outward sigh will last long as April zooms into a surge of powerful alignments set to shake up old ways. It is a month bursting with potential for change, the type of change that connects our Hearts and minds with the core of our Inner Truth. Ascension is not so much about gaining knowledge and wisdom as it is stepping into whole life change. It is being the change, merging with it and allowing it to integrate into every element of daily life. Whether these changes be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, or a combination of all, once we move beyond old limitations and find that new place of expanded vision, we understand the benevolence these changes are bringing. For it is all positive. Even when things appear to be falling apart it is all with good purpose. Spirit has its way of creating cracks in the surface of whatever isn’t aligned with Soul Truth encouraging us to look deeper at the choices we make, the thoughts we create and the path we travel. This energy is, in a sense, prompting us to take the initiative and deconstruct everything around us so we can see with our own eyes all we have fabricated. At the same time, we’re being asked to push beyond these limits and cast our gaze far into the future. Where do we want to be? What do we want it to look like? Who and what do we want around us? When these new visions are streaming into our expanded consciousness we can bring them back to the here and now so we can make more authentic choices that allow these visions to grow with our conscious intent. This is the month with the potential for breakthroughs. The energy has already started to rise, the upgrades and accompanying symptoms are occurring. Eclipses are powerful events in their own right and coming in pairs, they set up a portal for reshaping life in sudden and often unpredictable ways. With the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurring in Libra on 15 Apr and the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on 29 Apr, we have a 2 week portal intensified by the added surge of the Cardinal Grand Cross on the Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn axis. These are significant times and considering the Aries New Moon preceded everything on 29 Mar, it could very well play out as the boost that pushes us through any obstacles that may have been blocking our bold new beginnings. Or at least lines us up ready for when Mars turns direct from his retrograde motion on May 19. 2014 is shaping up as a year of restructuring the foundations of how we live, exposing Truth in all that we are and all we’ve become at an individual and collective level. As we zoom into these new energies, whether it be with exhilaration or apprehension, it is wise to remember nothing is random. There is a Great Plan behind everything delivering signs and messages for all who wish to see.
