– BE PREPARED, BE PRACTICAL, BE ADAPTABLE!
ALL CHANGE AND THEN CHANGE AGAIN?
Welcome to My April Predictions blog! Let’s see what is in store…..
APRIL PREDICTIONS; NUMEROLOGY
April 2017 (4 + 2017) – will be a 5 month in a 1 year. This says to me that personal changes are starting to take effect. This will be continuing through until the end of August with “real” change happening in September. September 9th 2017 will be a 1 day in a 1 month in a 1 year with September itself being a 1 month in a 1 year.
APRIL PREDICTIONS; ASTROLOGY
RELEASE, REVIEW, RENEW, REDO
VENUS, MERCURY, JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO will all be retrograde at some point this month.
Venus, Mercury and Jupiter are all interlinked this month with the theme, seeming to be on love; What we love, who we love, unconditional love. April Astrological predictions are therefore very much love- based as well!
Jupiter is still retrograde in Libra (ruled by Venus) – striving for balance and harmony in our lives. Venus retrogrades in Pisces this month. Venus is said to be exalted in Pisces – in its highest form of unconditional love. Although dreamy Pisces can have a touch of the rose- coloured glasses’ syndrome.
With Mercury also retrograding in Taurus (ruled by Venus), things, conditions and relationships may not be what they appear. It might be wise to wait until mid to end of May if possible, before making final decisions on matters that show up this month. On the plus side, it may be a great time for doing some lovely cord cutting meditations – releasing that which is no longer needed in your life but with love, forgiveness and gratitude.
Lessons learned and lessons yet to come…..
Saturn (the teacher) and Pluto (the reformer) going retrograde gives us a chance to consolidate what we have learned so far. Each person/situation we encounter is for a reason and potentially a great teacher, if we allow ourselves to see them/it in that light. Not always easy because sometimes those lessons are very tough and painful. Often, it’s the most painful lesson that we don’t repeat again because of the impact it had on our lives. It makes us wiser and gives us empathy to those going through the same thing. It also frees us from that situation, cycle and circle, thereby giving us space to have new experiences. Hopefully more conscious and positively aligned experiences for our highest good, bringing in people, places and situations of the same vibration.
When we’ve learned what we need and our vibration or awareness changes and shifts, then our environment starts to change and shift too. But firstly, we need to release (with love and gratitude) that which is no longer supporting our inner growth. When it comes to relationships and people, in an ideal world, it would be done delicately, as we all have feelings and the ever -fragile ego. The saying “the truth hurts” comes to mind. What it hurts is the ego.
Retrograde is not all bad!
When we are honest with ourselves and comfortable with ourselves we are able to handle truth and to hold our position strongly. So, retrograde periods are a valuable time for that inner work, inner reflection, checking in with yourself. Accepting yourself, loving yourself, knowing that you’re doing the best you can with the level of awareness you currently have. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither are we. We are a work in progress, ever evolving, ever learning, ever growing, ever loving, ever giving, ever kind and compassionate.
If you know the real you and the truth, then it doesn’t come as so much of a shock when others say it or see it. If you find buttons do get pushed, use that to check in with yourself. Ask yourself “why did that bother me?” “Was there really any truth in that?” “What can I do about it?” “What can I learn from it and do differently next time?” Ask yourself these kinds of questions in order to create a better outcome all round.
Remember too that we’re all entitled to our opinion and we all have one; it’s part of being human. Whether we like it or loathe it, it’s part of what makes the world go round; “Unity in diversity”.
Maturity comes with having a balanced opinion and being able to see both sides of the coin with acceptance and non-judgement. Some are innately gifted in this area, others never reach it in their entire lifetime, while most of us are somewhere in between. A lifelong work in progress. With painless effort, natural progress is made.

APRIL PREDICTIONS CHAKRAS
Being in a five month, with Mercury retrograding and also Sun going into Taurus later in the month, the focus seems to be on the throat chakra. The throat chakra is linked with communication. It’s about speaking our truth in a loving way.
Communication also comes in the form of the written word (and sometimes art as “a picture paints a thousand words”). Another key element of communication is active listening. Active listening is being fully present in the moment and listening to the other person, accepting what they say without judgement or attached emotion; just being there fully, giving the other person “the stage”.
It’s often easier said than done as many synchronistic conversations may trigger something deep within us that needs to be resolved. So, many a time, by truly listening, you get some insight out of the conversation. The other person also therefore feels heard, valued, acknowledged and accepted, thereby creating a win/win situation.
Also, if the person speaking is paying attention to what they are saying, they too will gain insight into their own situation. How many times have you said something out loud and it so did not sound the same as when it was in your head? Or you find yourself saying, “Did I just say that out loud?”

APRIL AND THE EVER -CHANGING GREAT BRITISH WEATHER!
I love this poem about the weather, adapting to change and resilience
Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot
We’ll weather the weather
Whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not!
