Where there is love, there is life. Early in April, Jupiter and Neptune will align in the spiritually attuned sign of Pisces. This conjunction will lend us an unwavering faith that the universe has our backs as we move throughout life led by our hearts. Shortly after, the Libra full Moon, lit with pink hues, will encourage us to act in ways that express the potential of loving energy that we want to see in our world.
Expect heart-centered breakthroughs with what you value and what you align with energetically. Stay woke to the awareness that leaning into compromise, generosity, playfulness, and love-inspired decisions have the power to make impactful changes throughout your life and your community.
Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
Without it, life is wasted time
Look inside your heart, I’ll look inside mine
—James Vincent McMorrow
Jupiter and Neptune and truth
When Jupiter and Neptune combine energies in the sign of intuitively driven Pisces on April 12, we embrace our inner mystic. The planet of soulful intuition, ideologies, and dreams, Neptune helps Jupiter further its perpetual search for insight and wisdom. We are supported in setting our course to experience life more from our spiritual truth, living in unity, and looking beyond our own understanding to be more loving to others as well as ourselves.
Our intuitive awareness is on high alert when Pisces energy is present. We experience serendipitous encounters, miracle moments, high vibrational interactions, and spiritual openings. Our dreams can become our magic mirror, giving us time for personal reflection of our unconscious desires, thoughts, memories, and future hopes. Pisces is also the sign of unconditional love. It invites surrender and acceptance as we move from any other course to a path that’s led by the heart.
As we travel through soul school, our experiences, challenges, choices, and changes deepen our inner connection, taking us deeper to our truth. As we embrace the ebb and flow of life, we can release time and learn to appreciate the beauty in life around us at each moment.
Illuminating light of the full Moon in Libra
I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel the love come over me
Let me feel how strong it can be
The full Moon in the seventh house on April 16 represents partnerships and strong bonds. It’s a game changer for the heart and its potential to sync to what we value and what we align with in our intimate relationships. As we balance our relationships, we gain more access to our creativity, which results in more loving interactions with life. Light is the gift; love is the function.
Libra is love in motion, optimism in the face of adversity, peace in the chaos, creating spiritual solutions while creating harmony in the lives of others. Libra is the full embodiment of a free spirit who follows life, chasing beauty all along the way. Governed by the air element, Libra embodies flow and movement. When in Libra, the full Moon shines light on feelings, thoughts, or emotions that have been obscuring our recognition of the abundance and prosperity coming into our lives.
Libra also causes us to reflect our generous heart to others, to invite everyone to the dance floor. Libra sends the welcoming message of “come as you are” and assurance to our heart that all our needs will be met. A cardinal sign, Libra is the teacher of contentment, a true leader. Libra reminds us to know our worth and to be our own advocate for partnerships that carry safe love. Libra’s symbol is the scales, which represent balance and an even flow. Take the time to check in with what is coming in and what is going out. Let it be easy.
Libra empowers us to move from a place of integrity as we create peace in our lives. It has the potential to open our consciousness to higher self-awareness and intuitive perceptions so we can bring our utmost attention to the places where we have polarities or opposing forces between what we need and what we want.
Count your blessings under this full Moon, let feelings of gratitude help you overcome any challenges you may face.
How to navigate your astrology forecast this week
Change the world with your love. During this time, receive life as it is and you will be shown an opening to bring it all into balance and let it all be in peace. Value the lessons, losses, gains, rising, falling, and all the dance moves you have learned along the way. The doors that are closing are creating an opening full of high-vibrational opportunities that will bring long-term fulfillment.
Who can you lift up today? Who can you praise? Say thank you, tell them all the ways they lift your heart. Say it now, don’t wait. If it’s there to share, let it be given. If we all walked side by side and were in support of each other, we would mend the broken parts inside ourselves and others and slowly but surely we would all elevate to a higher love.
Affirmation: Love is the thread of life. I reflect the love I want to see.
