April Showers bring May Flowers. This saying is deeply rooted within our souls. It is a way to remind us each year that after the full moon in April - which we just experienced, the time has arrived for renewal, forgiveness, and forward movement.
The Pink Moon in April is meant to allow us to look back at the past year and examine where we have been, the good and the bad, what is important to us and what we truly want to give birth to during the coming months.
And as many of you know with Mercury in Retrograde right now, we are urged to slow down and look at our lives. Communication slows and things can become entangled. It is okay! It is just the Universe saying SLOW DOWN, reflect and truly think about life. Yet, these two events happening at the same time can become cumbersome.
As our planet literally rebirths itself, we are urged by the Universe to evaluate where we have been and where we want to go. Who and what needs to be weeded from our existence and what needs to be planted to replace them. And this year, the Universe seems to be encouraging those changes even more with the planetary events combining with the full moon.
This can be an overwhelming time for many, the reflection and decisions can seem like a dark cloud overshadowing our lives, hence the April Showers. But remember in the coming days, as all the flowers, trees, and nature begins to bloom and develop again, so can your life. It is the natural flow of the Universe for all living things which includes us. It may not be easy but the beauty is always well worth the effort.
This can be a time for rebirth in any area of your life that you chose. Quiet your world and jot down your thoughts. Where you have been, where you are going, and what do you truly want? Let your life take the age old - natural journey it is meant to experience each year to allow rebirth within yourself and the path before you.
