The stars are demanding you claim your power NOW: are you ready?
Hang tight because April has a lot of intense energies that will demand that you claim yourself, step into your power and lead with integrity. Anger, power grabs and temper tantrum-like energy will push you to your limit at times, but if you let your heart guide you there is a wave of momentum that you can ride to massive impact.
Supportive Intuitive Tools
Oracle card: #10- Allow
This card asks you to be vulnerable and to let go of limits and expectations. The only other ask is that you listen to your heart. Though allowing provides opportunity each and every day, this month you’ll want to double down on that sentiment so you can make strides along your pathway.
Crystal: Spirit Quartz
Spirit Quartz is typically associated with alignment, harmony and growth but when you really dance with its energy, you’ll discover it holds your full potential for you. As it does, you have the ability to step into your future. Let the transformation begin.
Flower essence: Walnut
Walnut is the perfect pairing for this month’s energy as it helps you stay grounded and steadfast in your commitment to yourself. Walnut gives you fortitude to accept the changes around you without losing who you are. This flower essence allows you to move into what your heart desires.

New Moon – Do the right Thing
Details: Sun & Moon Aries on April 1st at 2:24 am ET
Do the right thing for the future. Use your mental prowess and heart-felt passion to help you awaken your creative aspects. The energy is ripe for volunteering and generosity as you gather momentum. Constriction is one of the themes this month, but for the New Moon focus on gathering your energy, your ideas and goals and then planting them down into the Earth for stability.
Week 1: Hit the Ground Running
The stars are ramping up, making it the perfect time to gather your ideas and plans that have been ruminating. Ground yourself before diving in, then roll up your sleeves and get to work. Mercury is front and center as he kisses the Sun, so expect a lot of communication to be happening around you. This week is a great time for collaboration, meeting new people and even some travel planning. Make sure to listen carefully to your inner wisdom and don’t overcommit yourself.
- Use your voice and share some ideas. Better yet, reach out for collaborative opportunities.
- Enjoy the changing of the seasons!
- Buy a plant or plant some seeds to physically connect to the Earth.
Week 2: Do the Hard Work
This week requires you to drop deeply and intimately into the hard work required to do the right thing. Integrity is strongest at the beginning of the week. You’re helped mid-week by Jupiter as he gives you the opening to step into your future of peace, abundance and sustainability. But, only if you took advantage of making the hard choice to do the right thing.
Despite the intensity that Jupiter, Mars and Saturn brings this week, Venus gifts you with an underlying vibration of sweetness and romance. Lean into her energies when yearning for relief.
- Choose something that has felt difficult before and start doing it.
- Ground yourself 2-3 times per day. Use your breath or go out in nature.
- Catch up on any administrative tasks you’ve been avoiding.
Week 3: Strap in and Stay Grounded
Hang on tight because the biggest star event of 2022 happens this week as Jupiter and Neptune meet for big impact. The possibilities these two planets bring to the table are bountiful- acceptance, inclusion, broadened perspective, increased awareness, imagination, creativity and love. Unfortunately, these possibilities may feel difficult to bring to fruition, especially if you’re not standing firmly in your core values or leaning into your intuition. When you’re not connected to yourself, this energy blasts you with delusion, distraction and escapist forces.
At the end of the week, take advantage of Saturn’s energy supporting you in moving forward on any tasks or goals that have been lingering. This is a blessing due to the other big star configuration. Patience, perseverance and strong work ethics are enhanced right now.
- Revisit your values in your personal and professional life as things come up in the collective that may feel disruptive and cloudy.
- Creativity flows. Make sure to jot down any ideas so you can revisit them later.
- There is a sweet underlying tenderness in the air, take time to enjoy it fully.
Full Moon – Say YES
Details: Sun in Aries & Moon in Libra on April 16th @ 2:55 pm ET
This Full Moon is an invitation for you to step up to the challenge of saying YES to transformation. Remember saying YES brings the potential to step into the life of your dreams. This Full Moon is going to be what you make of it. If you choose to open yourself to new possibilities and opportunities, it feels amazing. If not, the pressure on you to do so increases – exponentially. Be brave and shine your brilliance. You know you want to…
Week 4: Ride or drown in the waves – you decide
The beginning of the week is going to feel amazing thanks to Mercury and Venus. Attraction is amplified, especially when it comes to new relationships, friendships or love in any form. With that said, there’s also transformative power asking you to come out and claim you place in the world. If you claim your place, it’s yours. Period.
Since attraction is the name of the game, there’s also the potential to bring in more of those things you don’t want. If you are not claiming what you desire, you may find yourself surrounded by competitive situations or fall into people pleasing scenarios. Be brave and continue to make those hard decisions to move forward in the way that YOU desire.
- Claim it and say it! Decide what you want, visualize what it would look like and say it out loud to give you the power to make it come true.
- Open your heart to all forms of love.
- Get back to basics: sleep, eat well and stay grounded.
Week 5: Look ahead
This is the week to visualize and plan your future. Look at where you’re meeting your goals and lean in to make them a reality. Pluto requires more transformation from you, but this week’s New Moon and Ecliptic energy is perfect for aligning your thoughts with your actions.
This month has been full of extreme and uncomfortable energies, but growth comes from pushing through your resistance. Enjoy the attraction of abundant energy and open yourself up fully to the possibilities!
- Lean into the Ecliptic energy and visualize future plans and dreams.
- Journal or draw out some of your deep thoughts or feelings as they arise.
- Engage with loved ones and express your appreciation for them!
Black Moon/Eclipse –
Details: Sun in Taurus & Moon in Scorpio on April 30th at 4:28 pm ET
Your thoughts are aligned with your desires, but the tension and pressure cloud your ability to maintain the attraction. It’s confusing to know what’s real and what’s fake unless you dive into your intuitive knowing for the answers.
This New Moon has the potential to be full of fortune, unexpected good news and fresh perspectives. Ask yourself these questions as you set goals for this first of the Ecliptic pair: How can I be curious? How can I open my mind and shift my perspective? How can I open myself up to creativity?
Set goals right now and know that you can move forward to bring them into fruition. Stake your claim now as the upcoming energy shifts cause distractions. Don’t fall prey to getting off course.

April Energy for Intuitive Types:
Ruling Warrior: This is your month! Take advantage of this forward momentum to step-up and be the leader that you want to be.

Wise Strategist: This is the time to choose YOU and put yourself at center stage. Trust yourself and take that step forward, it won’t always be easy, but go back to your toolkit and continue to ground yourself and breathe through the energies.
Creative Superstar: You are going to LOVE weeks one and four, so mark your calendar and enjoy! The big star event on April 12th is also going to be fantastic for you to put your gifts out into the world and make your mark.
Collaborative Explorer: Clear and concise collaboration will be difficult this month, so take full advantage of your explorer side and do some personal excavation or move outside your comfort zone to try new things.
Loving Alchemist: This month is all about power and gathering, so you’ll love the healing energy available for both. Open yourself up to opportunities and lean into those pieces of yourself that need to be healed and released. Then fully claim your power.
April is an energetically charged month, challenging you to come out into the world. If you’re able to tap into your inner knowing and ride the waves of March, you’ll find April giving you the momentum to move forward at a quick pace. If you found yourself hiding in any aspect, last month you’ll be pushed to come out and stand in your power to stake your claim.
