April is such a beautiful month here in Central Virginia. It appears that every tree has beautiful blossoms filling every inch of every limb, thousands of bulbs have popped up and many, many flowering plants are in full bloom. The colors are breathtaking everywhere you look. I will say, however, the changeable weather can be a bit frustrating with the very cool nights and sometimes very hot days. But, it’s always beautiful and always exciting.
Enjoy all the change and you allow yourself to change right along with the weather. Let yourself bloom from within – find that new spring energy deep inside.
The energy color for April is a very dark shade of pink (nearly red). I find this color very rare in my monthly reads. Pink is such a light color with which to work, but this very dark pink reminds me more of working with a nice grounded shade of red. Dark pink (rose, raspberry, etc.) is a wonderful color to use to create a new, healthier energy flow. So much can be accomplished this month – in every area of your life.
Pink is associated with the crown chakra, the top of your head with the energy flowing from your crown all the way down to your toes. “See” yourself with that pink energy glowing around every inch of your body – that will help you create a very healthy physical body at this time. If you tend to get headaches, you may get a few more or a lot less this month. Just pay close attention and take whatever remedy, relaxation or medication you need early on. A lingering headache will have the potential to hang around way too long if you ignore it.
The energy hint for April is to find new ways to combine the energies of your body, mind, and spirit. Ask yourself how to feel light and spiritual while enjoying feeling very grounded to Mother Earth. It’s not an easy task, but with a little practice, you’ll enjoy the process greatly. Create meditations, visualizations along your path and you’ll understand what I mean. Use the wonderful strong energy of your physical body and combine it with the beautiful light energy of your spirit – what a combination. Let your thoughts take a break whenever possible. Your mind will tend to wander back and forth from “heavy” to “light” but that’s absolutely to be expected. Just relax into the movement.
Relationships: A good month to spend extra time alone and not try to figure out the intricacies of personal relationships. Enjoy our own company and avoid arguments at all costs.
Finances: A good month to see financial matters very clearly. You can use your grounded energy to work through old financial problems and find many clear solutions if you don’t allow emotions to get in the way. Stay calm and relaxed in all circumstances.
REMEMBER: ENJOY SOLITUDE AND THE FREEDOM IT BRINGS INTO YOUR LIFE.
