Natalia Alba – Dwelling in the illuminated ethereal realms of Pisces during March, has been magical and revealing, but it was also intense, for we are still feeling the energies from the Eclipses and the deep inner/physical cleansing that we continue to experience. This new month of April, especially reigned by its “retrograde” energies, is an invitation to move inward before fully anchoring our soul desires – and creations – in the physical – rejuvenating ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally. For we are not going to create anything authentic unless we are pure, ourselves.
We are now under the reign of the Fire element, and as our Sun is also very active, both Forces are helping us to burn all the old and rebirth into the light that we always have been and that was dimmed by the many illusions of our lower self. As some of us are deeply immersed into the process of dissolving the 3D membranes of our lower chakras, these fire frequency will also help us to do so and purify ourselves so we can be able to continue with our higher chakras/soul integration process.
At a planetary level, there are many changes, as you may already be feeling, affecting us at this time as well as the collective, as the Earth’s magnetic field is experiencing many changes and this together with the Moon’s rays (especially during the Full Moon in Libra on April 11) will bring all the unconscious limited beliefs – and implants – to the surface.
At the moment, many of us are under the process of transfiguration – inner and physical metamorphosis of our 3D personality or lower self – and we can feel deep physical sensations such as pain in our bones and spine, headaches, anxiety, loss of hair, between many other things, that releasing old imprints and beliefs have. This will be also accompanied by profound mood swings. This is the light coming from all these forces and cosmic alignments helping us shift and dissolve what is no longer aligned with our God Self Will and soul role. This Light may bring challenges but deep revelations for our soul evolutionary journey as well.
If you are a stabilizer, as it is my personal soul role, you may want to “seclude” yourself and be at peace, while this phase lasts, for we know how hard it is to keep our own balance, nothing to say at these intense phases, when we assist to bring balance to All. This is why this month reminds us all to be fully grounded to Earth as well as we are also connected to the Higher realms, so we can keep our inner balance while we are affected by Earth’s bifurcation intense energies and its many changes within this process.
We could feel more emotional, during this month, and even depressed, especially the ones who are beginning to awake, for they shall begin the challenging inner work of releasing all this karmic baggage but this is all occurring to give us an opportunity to recognize where fear still keeps playing a major role. Fear can be disguised in many forms, it can appear in our lives in form of lack, in the form of attachment or in form of self-sabotaging. However, we always have the choice, as sovereigns beings, to choose which one to serve, if fear, or if the love, that after all, we all are.
We have an opportunity, especially during Easter, to clear old beliefs about what truly ascension is, and old imprints that are impeding us to embody a higher level of consciousness. It is only after we transform ourselves and begin to embrace our True Essence and descend it into our tangible plane, that we will pass from planetary ascension to initiate ourselves at a cosmic level, which comes after our main seven initiations and complete mastery of our lower human self.
April, is a month that acts as an inter-dimensional liaison – creating the space for us to plant the seeds that in May will finally bloom, bringing harmony and unity between our Yin and Yang polarities and regeneration, while we step out of our inner realms and direct all of our inner fire – and visions – into our tangible plane. If during March, we focused on manifesting – first – from an inner place of higher clarity and wisdom, during April, gradually, we are going to surface again, descending all these inner worlds, for when May comes, be ready to finally manifest them in the physical.
We ended March with the Sun already in the sign of Aries. We pass now from Piscean Waters to Fire and later to feel again the power of Earth with Taurus at the end of the month. The wheel of life has rotated again and we moved from mastering and integrating all the wisdom received from our past challenges, with the last sign of the zodiac, to initiate ourselves again in this endless evolutionary soul journey, with the first sign of the zodiac, who leads us into a new cycle with the strength and wisdom regained in the depths of our being.
As the Universe always confirms and shows us in our heavens when we are feeling and giving birth in our micro one, this month holds a 14 – 5 reduced – frequency. If the number five holds the essence of fire, which indicates creativity and action – in our tangible plane as well as in March – number 4 frequency reminds us that April – with its dominant masculine essence – moves us from the ethereal to pay attention to where we truly reside, as humans.
But as we are impulsive by nature, sometimes manifesting without the proper discernment, the essence of number 14, which also governs this month and which corresponds to the tarot card of Temperance, invites us to balance ourselves before stepping into the unknown, for, as the winged women on the temperance card, we are still between with a foot in the ethereal and another one in the mundane. As Mercury will also remind us by the human illusion of being retrograde, while we walk in between worlds, the only true direction comes from our inner compass. For this is the only way we have to know where we are going and what we are bringing into fruition.
We begin this month of April by having Venus, the Planet of Abundance and Beauty, retrograde entering into Pisces. Venus in Pisces and even more together with the powerful energy of Neptune in the same sign, connects us with our inner creator, it helps us to give birth to our visions and expand ourselves into our heart desires – and spirituality – as this is a time for us to immerse ourselves within our inner senses, connecting to our souls, and listening to our own guidance – and Divine inspirations – more than focusing on the outer.
Venus in “slow motion” is going to give us a perfect healing energy for our relationships as well, it is going to be a healing energy – dissolving everything that is impure and inauthentic in our sacred reunions, leading us to an inner synthesis, establishing a deeper connection with all the aspects of who we are and loving each one of them as unique and equal without any judgement before we can love them too in another being.
As we also have the Wounded Healer Chiron, also in Pisces, it will be a great time to use forgiveness – especially with the Full Moon in Libra on April 11 – as our main tool for healing and soul integration, which is essential before fully embracing a new partnership. As the Goddess of Love revises her journey, so do we, and it may bring from our past old lovers and situations that we thought were finished. When this occurs, it is a gift, for we are being told that there are certain aspects within ourselves still active within that keep attracting what shall remain in the past.
On April 6, we also have another Planet reminding us of the important to just be before we step a further step into the physical. Saturn, the Planet of structure and responsibility – as another form of consciousness within Creation – teaches us how to be responsible for our own actions/creations. In contrary with what some may think, Saturn does not punish us for our lack of awareness in our past actions, but to make us more conscious of what should be shifted and transmuted so we no longer repeat the same old patterns that are not aligned with who we truly are and soul desires. By having Saturn, Venus and Mercury as well as Pluto, later on, retrograde, we are given the gift of becoming the witness of our whole life experience – past and present – and taking full responsibility of what we have manifested, until this moment.
Saturn also invites to examine ourselves before going deeper into this new stage of our lives. Have we learnt and integrated the wisdom from our past challenges? Have we healed what seemed broken to our human being and restored it again by recognising that we are always whole beings? Have we seen beyond our human illusion what truly Is and accepted it? Have we stepped out of the “karmic” wheel to finally embrace our inner creator and start manifesting outcomes aligned with our soul?
This is a time to see everything from a wider perspective, not from a linear one, as it is only when we move beyond what seems real for us as humans that we can realize if what we manifested was of assistance to All, or if we still have to break free from old chains and start seeing all the limitations that we impose to ourselves with the excuse that they are necessary structures for us to live in this world.
Mercury, The Winged Messenger, will turn retrograde on April 9. As I always say, the human programmed fear about a Planet being retrograde is still present in a lot of people. When we embody a higher level of consciousness, when we inform ourselves properly – as out there exists a lot of false propaganda – we understand that within this wise and loving Universe, there is nothing ever retrograde, this is just an illusion from Earth, there is nothing ever in slow motion within this light Universe, there are just moments to be lived from within and moments to emerge again in a new form, with a new direction to follow.
When we see the Winged Messenger retrograde from our human perspective, we are simply invited to move within and obtain more clarity so we can be fully aware of what we are giving form to from the inside. We communed with the Higher aspect of ourselves, realising were we contracted instead of allowing expansion before we are ready to rise again – renewed – holding a wider perspective of our life experience.
Venus and Mercury retrograde, which is also ruled by Venus, will remind us of self-love and observe how we communicate with ourselves. It is not about what others think or say about us. Neither it is about how we communicate with others or what they understand, but about our internal dialogue toward ourselves that brings us down the most and make us think we are inferior or superior. This Venusian and Mercury retrograde period, to me is all about observing how we behave with ourselves, for this will make all the difference in how others treat us and how we also behave with them.
Do you keep telling others how much you love and appreciate them while you still see yourself unworthy of love and abundance? Do you still pretend loving yourself while you cover this with superficial things that make you feel someone you are not? Do you honor the individualized aspect that Source chose to experience through you? Do you nurture your physical body as something sacred, created with Divine perfection to serve you well in your human journey?
On April 11, we have a loving and balancing Full Moon at 21 degrees of Libra. This Moon comes to set the proper balance we need in both our physical and non physical reality, after all the eclipses’ turmoil as well as the intense purification phase in which we are immersed. Venus retrograde in Pisces will also be reigning this Moon, and as we also have the Wounded Healer, as I call him, Chiron in Pisces, it is a wonderful time to reconnect with our Divinity, feeling its loving and infinite embrace, while we keep healing the past wounds that we are still re-creating or giving power to, and that needs to be accepted and integrated instead of denied.
On April 19, with Venus already direct again, the Sun will enter into the earthly sign of Taurus. The second sign of the zodiac, ruled by Venus, offers us the gift to create our Heaven on Earth, connecting with nature, honoring our physical realm and enjoying who we are and our creations. Taurus will start opening the energetic gates for us to begin grounding ourselves as well as our desires in the physical. With Taurus comes our second initiation after Aries, into a deeper knowledge of how to manifest our desires from an energetic Plane into our dense world, teaching us our next lesson within the wheel of life, which is to master ourselves in the endless art of bringing things from our inner world into our human one.
Taurus, a sign that likes to see the rewards of all His efforts, invites us now to pay more attention to earthly matters, as they are the materialization of that which is within and that which sustains us in our lives, remembering that material things are also a part of our lives, we do not separate anymore, as instead, we choose to unify All as being equal within Creation and human life experience.
It is a time to create, to bring forth new desires now that we are about to enter into May. A time to be reborn just as nature does, as everything is giving birth to a new way of existing and so are we. We should stay open to receive all that we have been creating from within during all these months, and be patient, as everything has been already perfectly orchestrated for us to just have faith and trust that at Divine Timing, all that is meant to come into our lives, will come.
On April 20, Pluto the Planet of Regeneration and Power, will also turn retrograde. This is something that will assist us to put our attention into where we put our personal power, purpose and healing process too, as Pluto brings into the light our inner shadows and the aspects of the Self that need to be healed by inner transformation. Do you use your inner power to nurture yourself and others and be of assistance in all you can? Or do you give your power away, allowing others to control, manipulate and/or enslave you?
Do you give your power to your fears? Or do you control them, and choose Divine trust and faith above any other form of human illusions? Your power resides in the Now, in the capacity of BEing fully present in this moment. Your power goes where you put your love and precious intention to. Therefore, choose wisely whether you waste your Divine inner Force on meaningless things, or whether you use it to construct and create new outcomes that will assist All.
This earthly frequency will culminate on April 26, with a New Moon at 6 degrees Taurus, will act as a gateway – functioning as a bridge for us to ensure our new beginnings and goals into our physical lives. This Moon sets the proper energies for us to keep expanding and materializing all of our earthly needs and it invites us to ask ourselves if we are satisfied with the results of our inner creations, as well as allowing infinite abundance and new possibilities into our life experience, or on the contrary, if we still need to keep mastering ourselves to obtain the outcomes that are aligned with our highest Will. As always, the universe provides us with endless signs for us to realize where we are in our journey and the awareness to perceive, if we are allowing this infinite flow of abundance – and love – into our lives or if we are still restricting ourselves from it.
Venus will also move, as Mercury did on April 20, into the fiery sign of Aries, on April 28. Venus, who was in Intuitive Pisces, will find now in Fire, the courage to step out of its dreamy state while it resided in Pisces, to finally discern about the relationships that we have decided to maintain and keep co-creating with in our lives. As when Venus was in ethereal Pisces, it dreamt about the new relationships it truly desired to manifest in this new phase but also, and even more together with Neptune, it could fall into old illusions and false idealizations. Now that Venus and Mercury are in the initiator, Aries, we are invited to ignite this inner spark of our true soul desires and set strong pillars that will support our relationships in the physical.
Finally, we end the month by having the second square between Saturn and Chiron on April 30. The first one of these squares took place on December 28, 2016. The third one will occur on November 2, 2017. When we have reached this phase of our ascension path, being honest is essential to keep dissolving everything that is still concealing the Truth. In a month with so many retrograde planets, and even more with Venus, having Saturn squaring Chiron, it is another cosmic reminder of loving and respecting ourselves as well as our truth.
If you are wishful to step into a New Cycle of conscious co-creation and a higher way of living, first you have to face and recognize your shadow self, accepting and embracing it as an equal part of who you are. You will only walk in integrity, in love and in service to All, when you first heal all the wounds that are yet whispering, inside yourself, to be brought into the surface, screaming in the corners of your heart, to be loved and begin to love yourself as much as you claim to love others.
When we walk the talk, we take the time to look within, becoming the observers of our own shadows, and instead of blaming everything and everyone of what is causing us suffering, accept what is found within, with responsibility, for we know that all arises from the depths of our being, and transforms all that is no longer aligned, through Divine love and compassion.
I wish you a grounded and blessed April, beloved companions.
