By The Light Of The Moon - April Moon Report
The Full Moon on April 7, 2020, will occur in sidereal Virgo in the lunar star of Chitra symbolized by a shining jewel, giving rise to the proverbial celestial architect. This full moon will aspect Mercury in Pisces, where it can cause weak and wonky global and personal communications. Be mindful to speak and write clearly and listen with your heart. Quiet your busy mind with daily meditation, even if it’s only five minutes. Close your eyes when you can. When the eyes are still, the mind is still.
Mercury governs the respiratory track, large intestines and skin. While the moon is shining directly at Mercury from approximately April 7 through April 9, practice the ancient yogic art of alternate nostril breathing (pranayama), apply warm massage oils to your skin while in the shower and eat clean, green, vegan foods made with love.
While the moon is in Virgo, it will support your plans to exercise, eat lightly, do yoga and take walks in the beauty of nature. It’s a splendid time to focus on your health in body, mind and spirit, while aligning your thoughts, words and actions. By the light of this full moon, answers to some of our pressing questions may be revealed and truths about the coronavirus and other global issues may be unveiled. May the Divine Mother (Moon), shine her light on the dark corners of our world and bring peace to our hearts and minds collectively and personally.
The New Moon on April 22, 2020 will occur in sidereal Aries, the lunar star of Ashwini, represented by the head of a horse and symbolic of the celestial physician. This new energy will herald in personal and collective healing. The world will be ready to step into a new paradigm where health takes “front and center”. Mysterious illnesses can be overcome with new perspectives or with new health practitioners or therapists.
Spring is the ideal time to detox our body and let go of what or who no longer supports us in order to invite something new and wonderful into our life. Aries is the passionate pioneer who invents new ideas and is impulsively playful. It’s a great time to start a new job, begin a new relationship or find a new playmate. Why not find a new therapist or coach that will inspire you to manifest your dreams? Remove the heaviness of winter that has accumulated in our tissues by reducing dairy, sugar, meats and gluten. Instead of going to the gym, try exercising outside in the sun, go for a horse ride along the beach, sit in a sauna or steam room, get a restorative massage, stretch more and eat only fruit in the mornings to increase your telomeres. Remember, we are all in this together and all is well in the Universe.
The difference between the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac is about 23 degrees. Both systems have value. Sidereal astrologers believe the qualities of the signs are not related to the seasons, but rather to the specific portions of the ecliptic as measured against the fixed lunar stars.
