Jen’s monthly Zodiac sun-sign Star Bytes© for April 2014.
Happy Birthday to April Aries! Your birthday year ahead calls for you to slow down. You may feel a bit indecisive and frustrated with your energies feeling like they’re being staled. A time to revisit and examine how you interaction with others. Be particularly mindful and gentle in your life and how you come across to others around April 7 & 8. Reel in impulsivity, hold back and observe before expressing your thoughts and/or taking quick actions.
Happy Birthday to April Taureans! This is a month that brings in opportunity for you to enjoy, feel good in those Earthly pleasures that delight the senses: gourmet food, art, music, aromatherapy, massage, or love-making or all of them! In fact, you may be intuitively seeking it out around April 18th to de-stress and/or gather yourself together for anticipated stressful activities occurring on April 20th.
A time when you’re enjoying any opportunities that have resulted from your year’s work that is coming to a wrap soon as your next birthday year begins in about two months. As such, it’s a good time to get out and be yourself around people. You may find yourself thinking about, or talking about some fresh new ideas or ventures in mid-April. Keep them in mind as you reflect on what ideas you would like to carry forward with you into your next birthday year as it approaches.
This month, the foci points of the Moon illuminate change and initiation. Starting with the beginning of the month brings urges of new beginnings and initiation that require nurturing and incubation (April 7th) , and manifests through balance and relationships (April 15th) to reap something that awakens change (April 22nd). On a broader annual scope, this month is when you may look back at your overall current birthday year with an objective view as it’s three-quarters through its way. You’re still active, attending to matters or even hurdles but more so in its conclusive phase of your year’s plans (i.e. June 2013-June 2014). Use any frustrations or disappointments, major or minor to help assess and understand the denouement of your personal goals and plans.
The Sun being in Aries, the first of the fire triad signs brings a supportive feel-good vibe to your being. Perhaps you’re pleased with how yourself and how you’re meeting your goals for the current birthday year – enjoy the feeling but don’t halt and rest on your laurels. Instead take advantage of this energy flow to continue to make headway and prepare for what you still need or want to accomplish. Celebrate your milestones while continuing to apply yourself. It’s almost like getting stuff done now while the energies are in your favor.
The past couple of weeks, you may have felt like your thinking and communications have been harder to grasp than you’re comfortable with. Perhaps you’ve had to expend more effort to really understand what’s being communicated to you and vice-versa. After April 8th, prepare to pick up the pace to process new ideas that come your way this month. Near the end, around April 24th, you get a more solid tangible sense of information which jives more with how you prefer to operate. There is opportunity for growth and expansion of who you wish to become for September 4-7th birthday Virgos, just beware to not overdo or bite off more than you can chew and remain humble.
Those born on October 5th-15th may find themselves revved up with passion, drive to express themselves; you may surprise those around you with direct responses that is not usually typical of a Libra. A good time to be physically active. A good time to also hang-out and enjoy the company of others, or that special someone surrounded by fine-dining, soulful music, nature or whatever suits your refined tastes and social environments. March is typically your midpoint of your birthday year and by now you should have a sense of what’s being accomplished as you continue to further your dreams for this year (September 2013-September 2014).
Your drive and will continues to take on a more strategic approach. You may find yourself intellectualizing more and weighing pros and cons, considering the different outcomes or consequences before taking action. This is because you understand the permanence of cause and effect. It’s a fine line to balance expanding and seeking opportunities to learn and grow while deciding what fears need to be released. Pursuing your dreams inherently means giving up some aspect of security or status-quo. Use your keen sense of perception to help your truth guide you as you walk that fine line. Pay attention from April 20th-April 25th.
Continue to expand on materializing your visions. This time brings a sense of excitement, newness and birthing of projects, and plans as you continue to take action. The energetic feeling is akin to being on a departure flight towards your destination, but you continue to work while your plane is taking off! Continue to build the growing momentum as Jupiter your guiding planet is positioned to nurture your dreams, visions, and faith. While you do so, recognize how to interact with those establishments in power – be prepared to negotiate; think and work creatively to balance your dreams and visions in the boundaries of reality should you be presented with them. Not a good time to engage in power struggles with authorities: Remain humble, realistic and act strategically.
Be prepared (well Capricorns traditionally like to be prepared…) for unexpected activities with close ones; being a person inclined for predictability, who also wants to fulfill your duties, you may feel unsettled and a bit on on-edge. Partaking in social activities that replenish and soothe the soul like music, or giving yourself some moments of quiet solitude help restore your sense of calm and balance. Pay extra attention and care in your regular dealings around April 20th-25th, especially if your birthday is on or near January 4th.
A sense of enjoyment and desire to connect with your tribe since the start of March continues into the start of the month and shifts to a more mellow-chilled out relaxed vibe tone. Be on the look out for new opportunities to exchange ideas, information or engage in new business transactions or ventures. Your actions and drives occur in the context of partnerships and contracts. Working strategically may mean some compromise with your individual preferences. You gain objectivity of the month around April 22nd. Overall, this month is about kicking off the start of your birthday year with new ideas, contacts and information in the development phase of your goals for this birthday year.
Venus graces your vitality and accents a pleasant, social tone to you and your interactions with others. At the same time you may feel attracted to metaphysical and spiritual energies, perhaps reaching out in compassionate activities that focus on “the other”. Or you may choose to connect with the Universe by communing with Nature, animals or simply your own inner divine energy (meditation). For those with February 25th & 26th birthdays your intuition heightens perhaps in your unconscious dreaming and conscious states.
