How Do You Set the Stage for Love in Your Life?
This month is the perfect cocktail for True KLT. April gifts you with the ability to know, like and trust yourself more. The key is to quiet your mind and drop into your own expression of love.
As I summarized in the 2021 forecast, April is a mixed month beginning with fiery and fast movement, then declining into low energy in the middle of the month. We become frustrated as we’ve just hit our groove. We’ve been moving so quickly doubts and fears arise about the new, so we yearn for the comfortable and familiar. Don’t fall prey to the pressure. Let’s embrace the complexity and wholeness of our beings while seeking simple solutions for healing and moving into our highest purpose.
Big Star Events:
- Stellium (lots of planetary force) in Aries– On the plus side, there’s lots of energy, drive and movement for awakening or beginning anew. On the other hand, there’s impatience, agitation, aggression and the potential for violence.
- All planets direct until the 27th when Pluto is the first big planet to turn retrograde.
- One more lunar cycle, New Moon on the 11th and Full Moon on the 26th, with all planets direct.
Week 1: Sparky Fires
As March winds down and bursts into April, your mind is restless, impatient and ruthless about – everything. This is a lot, in fact, it feels like too much and for the next two weeks – it continues relentlessly. The key is to bring your energy from your mind into your heart and will. When you do, there’s tremendous healing and loving power. This fiery energy sparks creativity and momentum to bring you the life of your dreams. Deepen, center and ground yourself to allow your natural magnetism to create opportunity. Remove your mind from the equation as it’s too assessing, wanting to move more quickly than is possible. Breathe.
Week 2: Mind Opening
Your mind has a change to broaden its perspective, see with a wider lens and innovate new ways of doing business or loosening constrictions in your daily life. Allow your mind to slow down, take things in, connect to your heart to feel its wisdom. Observing, perceiving and intuiting are the name of the game right now. The fiery forces are igniting your ability to accept new ways of learning and taking in knowledge. This can be life-changing for you if you allow it.
New Moon: Self-care & Self-love
Details: April 11th at 10:32 pm ET at 22° Aries
The Aries energy is explosive right now pushing you to be fully you without any interference from anyone or anything. There’s positivity about your future you want to embolden you in deep and meaningful ways. You have the opportunity for open and honest communication with yourself and others. How are you deconstructing yourself to be truly who you are? How do you feel about your life right now? What types of healing and support will you allow? What elements of self-care do you embrace? Make a commitment to yourself right now during this New Moon.
Week 3: Softening Influences
Finally, the personal planets begin to move into Taurus for a softening and patient influence. Phew – another Aries cycle has been survived! As the cosmic forces deepen your energy, you feel more capable. You can sense your power, put together opportunistic connections and fall into a smoother flow throughout your days. There’s positive influence here for business and life. Take advantage of it.
Week 4: Love Conditions
Love comes up for review. Learning how you love yourself and are loved by others is a theme this month and heightens during this last week of April. There’s electricity you can plug into to find answers on how you love and like to be loved. You can get answers to your burning questions. Are you open to the various ways of love? Do you allow soothing and soft influences as well as passionate and fiery ones? How does loving support show up for you? Why do you like to be loved in certain ways? What types of loving expressions come naturally for you and which ones don’t? Explore each question and welcome the answers that arise. This week feels lonely and isolating, so is a wonderful to go inward and reflect. Ponder without judgment.
Full Moon: Life’s Simple Pleasures
Details: April 26th at 11:33 pm ET at 7° Taurus/Scorpio
The power of life’s offerings flourishes and then plunges deeply into your feeling world. Emotions come to the surface for review and either acceptance or rejection. What will you keep? What will you discard? Allow your feelings to lead you to answer questions you have about how you want to set up your future.
Bottom Line: Perfect cocktail for True KLT
April’s energy dives deeply into how you know, like and trust yourself. Your mind runs amuck, but has the chance to take a beat and let the heart drive for a bit. Go into your own feelings and senses to open to your energy in different ways. Take this month to move forward on your dreams and set the stage for love in your life.
Supportive Intuitive Tools
Tarot: Five of Wands – Oppression
The five in the Tarot is about life’s mastery. There’s so much fire at the beginning of the month, there’s destruction as well as construction. Let the fire destroy the unhealthy elements and allow it to build up the healthy ones. Liberate yourself from the confines you’ve set up to keep you ‘safe’. There’s no safety in oppression, there’s only constriction. Being free means taking a risk. You are worthy of risk in all of the ways of love and life.
Diamond calms and brings you gifts of thoughtfulness and consideration. It reminds you of your soul’s purpose. Let this shiny and treasured stone show you the value of YOU. You are valuable and worthy. Demonstrate this to yourself and others will follow.
Flower essence: Impatiens
Aries energy is always in a hurry. Sometimes this is productive, but other times it pushes you out of balance. Instead of falling into unnecessary stress and drama, let Impatiens flower essence help soothe you. This essence also promotes inner trust.

1st ½ of the month:
Self-love doesn’t seem to relate to business, but it does exactly. When you demonstrate self-love, you actually create opportunities and welcome support. Ground yourself against the forceful and impatient pushing energies the first week. Take a deep breath if the sale doesn’t happen or you don’t know when or how to make the next step. Be patient. You are planting seeds for the future. Your business relationships are going through change right now as all others are. Get creative. Use this energy to open new ways of relating and connecting. Deepen your offerings, take a step back and review your strategy. Innovate to solidify your foundation the first 1/2 of the month.
2nd ½ of month:
The 2nd ½ of the month is a great one for doing business. Things click, prospects respond and you finally feel in the flow. Ride the wave, but don’t get carried away. The last week plunges you back into the depths as it widens cracks and gaps. Remember, this is opportunity too. Pause, breathe and find ways to repair the gaps.
