The April full Moon arrives early on the 19th while Moon is transiting Libra and Chitra nakshatra. At 05:12 am the Moon is full of light and at capacity. Coinciding with this full Moon is Hanuman Jayanti, celebrated birth date of the powerful and beloved monkey god. This is an important cycle to find more balance, integration, and make your visions a reality. Sun is exalted in Aries and Venus remains exalted in Pisces as well. Activate, align and receive! Clarify and focus your aim and direction. Be proactive and get results.
Chitra nakshatra is ruled by Vishvakarma, god of action, building and creating. He is considered the celestial architect as he created and built the zodiac. He is a powerful ally for supporting your visions, dreams and desires as he helps them materialize and come into form through your action steps. He is not lazy and does not give results to those who are not actively working towards their goals and desires. Vishvakarma is action oriented and very focused on receiving the fruits of his labors. It's time to put plans into action.
Are you actively moving towards your goals and desires at this time? Are you being proactive and taking conscious steps towards your dharmic path and purpose?
The April full Moon takes place with Hanuman Jayanti, celebrated birth day of Lord Hanuman, the beloved monkey god. He and his monkey army saved Sita from the wrathful 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- father to both Bhima and Hanuman. Hanuman reminds us of righteous action and that we must use our power and strength for conquering evil and restoring balance- while always upholding dharma. His devotion to Lord Rama expresses deep bhakti, and the power of leading with the heart. Your true strength is your heart wisdom.
Navaratri has ended now. This is the time of year when Sun completes a year long cycle around the zodiac and activates a brand new solar cycle. Sun entered Aries on Sunday, April 14th, arriving in Ashwini nakshatra and his sign of exaltation. The Sun is the center of our solar system. He rules over the light cycles and natural rhythms. He brings the dawn, the day, the growth that comes from his life light. As Sun enters his most powerful placement of the zodiac, a fresh start and powerful beginning takes place.This Sun transit activates a new year in the Vedic calendar and the immense power of the Sun offers a surge of new energy and strength. This is a wonderful time to cleanse the body, mind and spirit. Clean, clear and purge the heaviness of the past year and clear away the undigested emotions lingering. Create space for the new and burn away the excess. Clean up your diet, take time to rejuvenate, and clarify your focus and direction in life.
Just after the Sun exalts in Aries, we get the power of yet another exalted planet. Venus moves to Pisces on April 15th, joining debilitated Mercury here. Fortunately these two planets are friendly to each other, however, their opposing strengths will express extremes. Mercury is turning inward in his least favorite sign, while Venus expresses her energy externally at maximum capacity. This is an interesting juxtaposition for creativity, romance, the feminine, beauty, art, love, harmony and finances. Watch for excess, over indulgences and extremes with these areas of your life.
Use the coming month to get clear, refocus your priorities and clarify your dharmic path. Set goals, honor your intentions and align your actions with more purpose. Simultaneously find more balance, creativity and nourishment in your life. Find the joy and say yes to more pleasure.
With the potential for expansion also comes the challenges of two retrograde planets who are asking us to re-visit some very old ground. The coming cycle brings shifts with Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter has been retrograde since April 10th and will re-enter Scorpio on April 23rd. Saturn will also go retrograde on April 30th for a lengthy return through Sagittarius. Saturn and Ketu continue to move into close conjunction, preparing for a collision. This is a long cycle of heavy Saturn forcing us to return to grief that has been undigested and undervalued. Pay attention.
These transits create challenges with old, established structures and foundations as well as support, guidance and wisdom. We are all living on shaky ground right now. Strengthening your support team and gathering more resources is vital. The area of life that is getting restructured will depend on where Sagittarius lives in your jyotish chart. Expect the unexpected in this area of your life.
Read more about Ketu in Sagittarius.
I think it's important to acknowledge that the entire world is going through massive structural changes that can feel unsettling and painful. Increased compassion is necessary for all, as well as diligence with grief work and inner transformation. This is in important time to have an emergency plan in place and not be foolish with actions and choices. Less is more.
As Jupiter moves back through Scorpio, he is asking you to revisit your shadows, illusions and vulnerabilities. There is important clean up to do in the area of your life where Scorpio lives in your jyotish chart. Jupiter represents wisdom, guidance, teachers and spiritual resources. Gather more of what you need to navigate this process of release. You will be asked to dive even deeper into your unconscious terrain and release patterns, blockages and behaviors that are very old. You will need more support for this process so don't try to do it alone. Gather what you need and be proactive.
There are challenges and resources with the current transits. Honor the waves and be diligent with clearing and releasing. Ask for more but be realistic about the steps that need to be taken in order to achieve the results you want. Strengthen the holding and support you have in your life and don't walk alone.

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.
