Happy April, everyone!
For most of this month the Sun is in fiery, powerful, forward-moving Aries. This potent energy could be used in the weeks ahead to help you move through blocks, get on a more positive course, and own your power.

Tarot Reading for April 2018:
- 8 of Swords/Interference
- 7 of Cups/Illusory Success
- 7 of Pentacles/Failure
- Wheel of Fortune
- Queen of Wands
- Ace of Swords
The 8 of Swords indicates that this month is a good time to reflect on how your own thoughts (rather than your actual, physical circumstances) may have been hindering you. Sometimes we perceive that we are more limited than we actually are. Mercury is retrograde in Aries until the 15th, so until then will be an especially good time to observe your thought patterns and focus on redirecting them, to enhance your personal power.
The 7 of Cups and 7 of Pentacles show that we can benefit this month if we let go. Let go of false dreams and illusions of success that actually wouldn’t fulfill you internally. Also, let go of whatever hasn’t been fruitful or working for you. Evaluate what does work for you. Letting go of failures will encourage future successes to come more easily.
The Wheel of Fortune, Queen of Wands and Ace of Swords show how if we do this internal reflection and redirecting, we can move forward with more ease, and get unstuck in ways we may have been stuck before. It will help us to step into our power, overcome our obstacles and master our thoughts.
Messages from the Angels:
(From “Angels of Atlantis” oracle cards, by Stewart Pearce)
Archangels Raziel and Raphael have appeared in this reading for us this month. Raziel resonates with the archetype of Merlin, the Magician. He is a keeper of the mysteries of the Universe and can help us to tap into Divine wisdom. Raphael is known as the healer among the angels, and he can be called on for that purpose.
Dive Deep Within
Archangel Raziel’s message for us is to turn inwards, in stillness and silence, to hear the voice of our intuition and its guidance for us.
“Listen carefully to these inner murmurings, for when we are called to a teaching, a guide, a vision, a book, a piece of music, or a natural landscape, it means there is something powerful that will be communicated to us.”
Archangel Raphael’s message is to take these next few weeks to cleanse, using fire and/or water to release so that we may come into more harmony and transition to new beginnings in our lives. And for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, this is definitely a good time for detoxing, as it is springtime.
Detox & Cleanse
These elements could be used in many ways. For example, you could take hot salt baths or drink hot tea with the intention of cleansing. For some, what needs to be cleansed may be fears, illusions and/or subconscious, repeating thoughts that may be linked with childhood events.
By listening to our intuitive nudges and by cleansing, we can come into our power (there’s that word again!). There is also a message here that we can then express with courage and inner strength to the world who we are and what makes us distinctly, uniquely us.
Thank you for reading. Wishing you all a wonderful month!
