The April Full Moon is April 11th at 00:07 Mountain Time Zone, just minutes after Tuesday begins. Moon is in Virgo and Chitra nakshatra, with four planets retrograde- Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury. There is much returning, a required retracing of steps, and much to reassess in the coming cycle. This impacts all four levels of your being- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
This Virgo full Moon in Chitra, enlivens Vishvakarma's domain. Action, integrity, motivation, force, creative steps and the energy of Mars activate. The momentum for forward creativity and building has arrived, but first you must retrace your previous steps and discard what is hindering your progress. What ground requires that you return, excavate and rediscover the messages you previously glossed over? Where are you still stuck and feeling misaligned?
You may be noticing increased criticism towards self and others. Expectations not matching results. A desire for clean up and clarification. Frustrations increase as the mind gets critical, focused and obsessed with outcomes. You are being forced to look at parts of yourself that need more attention. Can you find more acceptance and compassion with your mental body, thoughts and perceptions? The mind is just trying to keep you safe- at all costs- however, it is also keeping you playing small and insignificant. Break free from the old patterns and try something different.
Vishvakarma rules the portion of the sky that spans from about 23 degrees Virgo to just over 06 degrees Libra. He supports building, growth, planning and action oriented endeavors, especially the creativity required to increase and proliferate- to bring plans into form. As the Divine Architect, he is an Aditya, which means he provides resources, support and gains on the material plane of existence. He creates, constructs, builds and plans- using the celestial sphere as his playground. As a form of Lord Brahma, he supports the manifestation process; ideas come into form, thoughts emerge into existence, visions become reality. This is a powerful cycle to clarify your desires and get clear on the action steps needed to materialize them into tangible, relative form. Without your clarity, you can not create and manifest. What is your ultimate goal? What action steps are required to bring this vision into reality? Work backwards.
Manifestation takes place on the feeling level of your being- not on the thinking level of mind. If you are disconnected from your emotional body, you will have challenges creating and activating your inner intelligence and manifestation capabilities. This cycle can pull you out of feeling, so work closely with sensing and feeling in order to deepen your desires, needs and your relationship with your emotional body wisdom. What is showing up right now in your emotional body? Your needs and desires? Where do you feel safe to create and grow? Where are you feeling unsafe to expand and move forward?
It will be through steady, consistent action steps that you succeed and arrive at your destination. You can not skip steps. Keep showing up, leaning in, moving towards your desires. Seek clarity through ample pause and check, silence, meditation and inner listening. You must make room for the new. This requires that you release and let go of the outworn emotional patterns and behaviors keeping you locked in old ways of being. Clear the mind of illusions, stories and pains that don't support your forward momentum. Listen carefully to body and spirit as resources for your sustained growth. What are you releasing so that you can open to the new in the cycle to come?!
The April full Moon is also the celebrated birth day of Lord Hanuman, the beloved monkey god. He saved Sita from the wrath of the demon Ravana and brought her home safely to Ayodhya and Lord Raam. Hanuman is a Rudra, meaning he has immense strength, power and sheer force available to him. This strength was given to him by Vayu, the wind god, and father of both Bhima and Hanuman. Hanuman reminds us of righteous action, using our power and strength for conquering evil and restoring balance, while always upholding dharma.
