This Libra Full Moon is kinda special. It occurs on 11th April 2017 at 6.08 am GMT. With Venus in Pisces, turning direct on 15th April, this is the time to reconnect to the unconditional love, grace and compassion of spirit. It is so easily accessible now at this full moon, but will be there in steady stream for you for the whole of April.

We are being given access to a very special and rare spiritual frequency. Five feminine energies are making conjunctions at this Full Moon – with Moon and Jupiter, Venus and Chiron, Ceres and Mars, Juno and Pluto, and Eris and the Sun. When I tune in, it’s actually quite exquisitely blissful. It’s almost like a celestial kundalini rising! It feels as powerful as a Venus Sun Cazami. For many, this is a time to reset, a fresh start on many dimensions at many different levels.

If you are one of those people who is experiencing the ending of a relationship during this Venus retrograde, just know there is going to be a lot of celestial support for you over the next few weeks to get you through it. You are not alone.

So on 15th April Venus ends her retrograde, turning direct and bringing through an emotional, deep feeling quality the kind you feel when you make contact with what or who you truly, deeply and madly love. Those special moments that seem to only pepper our lives, but wake us up to what really matters. The next two weeks is a time for that, if you allow yourself the time to receive, for it’s a subtle, soft, gentle vibration – it’s in the background and has more of a whispering quality.

If you’ve felt disconnected from your spiritual practises, your deepest being or your truest feelings, this time will reconnect you if you take the time to just tune in. Today especially, the energy is quite exquisite. It will bring you to tears if you allow the space. Let a beautiful song move you and awaken those tender feelings. Look anew at the ones you love through the eyes that recall those moments, reawaken that old feeling, if it’s been absent.

Venus is still squaring Saturn, and while being direct soon, she will be in square to Saturn for some time, a couple of weeks. This is still a challenging time, a time of sorting through and reorganising our relationships, and our values within and around our relationships. But mainly a time to work on what stops us really loving ourselves, what gets in the way of that.

We are learning to trust again, or rather to trust differently, or to trust in something other than our ego’s ability to make things happen. We are learning to have faith and to trust our visions and the bigger process (Moon conjunct Jupiter). Even if we are being deeply challenged at this time, we can trust that it is bringing us into contact with exactly what we need for our soul growth – whether we can see that directly, acknowledge it to ourselves or not.

We can get so overly focussed on the worldly success, even if it’s for quite legitimate reasons and honourably in service. But our external successes, while valid and beautiful, are not really the deepest truth of our lives. Our deepest truth is to be connected to our spirit and our soul’s yearning. And while we, as spiritual explorers, often think we are more on our journey than everyone else, quite often we are no different. Just a different flavour of truth, no higher or better or more connected. What world or spiritual delusion have you been pulled into?

But I suspect, with Venus and Mercury having been in Aries until recently, we haven’t really been listening deeply, we’ve rather been on a mission, we’ve been invested in the game, the goal, and probably quite, if not very, attached to the outcome. We’ve also probably been hedging our bets, hoping it will turn out alright. Well, hope is not enough now, not for those on a journey of spirituality, awakening all the dormant parts of themselves, we know better, deep down. We need more than hope, and courage. We need grace right now.

Venus is very strong in Pisces but it’s a very fine, refined quality of love. It’s a love that you won’t connect to if you are hurtling along a hundred miles an hour. You have to open the door to it, that’s how grace works, which is the essence we are essentially talking about here.

The faith, trust and grace of life is on offer to show us a different way. This is the time to surrender, to let go and find another way than the normal pace and approach you take to make things happen. If you don’t have an answer to what that other way is right now, then the first thing is to let go and stop holding on so tight. This is the first step to discover and then experience what’s been missing in your life. What if your path and your expectations are not met in the way you believe they should be? What happens if you needed to let go, if there was no other way right now?

Mercury is now retrograde in Taurus and then he will go back into Aries. With all these retrograde planets, it’s a special time for deep and intuitive insight into our lives, the patterns and themes that we’ve been living. It might not be easy to receive this intuitions as much of it might be uncomfortable, showing us what we habitually resist, or where we have been misguided, essentially. That’s never easy. But once a year, at least, we need that clear breakthrough realisation as to why things are not working out. When things do not go as planned (and they often don’t when we have Venus retrograde stuck in an uncomfortable square to Saturn for a few weeks), there’s something very big that needs our attention. And most likely, we’ve been shown what this thing is repeatedly, over and over again. Now, is the time to listen, feel and pick up that message.

All of April Venus lingers close to Chiron in Pisces, helping us see how our Venus challenges (relationships, body image, values) ultimately come back to not enough self-love – we are always learning to love, accept and forgive ourselves more deeply. And to love ourselves, we need to first reconnect with ourselves. Be vulnerable, it’s ok to not be perfect. The astrological weather hasn’t made it easy recently to feel ourselves more deeply. It’s been about thrusting, pushing even forcing things forward. And that’s all been valid, but now we have the opportunity to come back to ourselves, to return home.

With the Moon conjunct Jupiter opposite Uranus, there are answers and breakthroughs at our finger tips. What you receive now could possibly be so life altering that it supports such a strong inner resolution to yourself, to intend to stay close to yourself (of course we can never stay there permanently but it’s good to intend to!). To notice quicker when you are lost, when you have gone away. When we go off the direct path, and enter into some deep learning territory, its to remind ourselves that we might need the opposite of what we are deep down, to remind ourselves of the truth of what we want for our life and who we truly are, in our deepest nature.

So come back to your senses, return to your home, to the beauty that’s tender and true and that brings gentle, soft tears to your eyes. Want to know where to start? Magic ipod. Let your soul sing and let you voice sing. Come back to your feelings, feel your heart beating. Honour your feelings for the next two weeks. They will tell you what you need most in your life.
