Hello Magical Souls!
In my world, Aries season is going to be quite the busy time! My manuscript for the Black Moon Lilith™ Cosmic Alchemy Cards (working title) is due on May 1st, so I will be hunkering down to put the finishing touches on this amazing project. The launch date is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2023; once the time comes, I cannot wait to share this creation with all of you. If you are not already signed up for the mailing list, I encourage you to join it at the bottom of this page for the latest Lilith news.
I’m also thrilled to announce that I will be opening a few video consultations on Intro. Intro is an amazing, convenient app where you can purchase video calls directly with me. Due to my work on the book, I had discontinued video appointments for some time—but this app makes things so much easier to manage. I figured, why not pop in from time to time and serve some clients? I’ve opened a few consultation slots in May, so head on over before they sell out. Visit my page on Intro to purchase your slot.
April is a month of transition. During this time, we all will feel like the Phoenix, burning to ashes, regenerating, and showing the world our true selves. While winter is the time to discover who you are, spring is the big reveal as we head toward May with Jupiter in Aries. As we move forward, ask yourself: Where have I dimmed my light in order to make other people comfortable? It’s time to stop playing small, and step into true empowerment.
Sending love and beauty,

ASTROLOGICAL FORECAST FOR THE COLLECTIVE: BLAZE YOUR OWN TRAIL
After enduring a stagnant start to the year, the cosmos is lighting a fire under the collective this April. Aries is a cardinal fire sign, emanating the divine masculine energy of leadership, action, determination, and strong will. While the Aries blaze does provide energy, it also manifests the destructive nature of fire. The energy of April reminds me of the Phoenix: an occult symbol for death and rebirth. This month, many of you will align with your truth; but as a result, you may have to destroy and remove realities that no longer serve you.
That blazing, chaotic energy will manifest at the very start of April, with a challenging new moon in Aries on April 1st. A new moon occurs when the moon and sun form an exact connection in the sky, giving off the dark moon effect. What’s difficult about this new moon is that Mercury (communication) and Chiron in Aries (wounding) will be present in the energetic mix. As a result, fiery conversations can erupt, and the need to defend your individuality may occur. During a time like this, patience is key.
Venus—the planet of love, beauty, and material wealth—moves into its exaltation in the sign of Pisces on April 5th. When a planet like Venus is in a positive position like exaltation, we can experience benefits in the area of life that it affects.
On top of this, Venus will join with expansive Jupiter and Neptune during the month. This is an extremely rare planetary alignment - Neptune takes 165 years to move through the entire zodiac! Creative endeavors, spiritual matters, manifestation, finances, and world travel will be easier thanks to this planetary alignment. However, be on the lookout: a tendency to escape reality or fall for illusions may creep into your life.
Once we approach the middle of the month, the full moon in Libra on April 16th will focus our attention on interpersonal connections. Relationships, partnerships, and how we interact with other people in our lives will be granted the spotlight. Shortly after the full moon, Taurus season will begin with the sun moving into the sign of decadence, value, material wealth, and abundance on April 19th. The sun and moon will ignite Uranus and the north node in Taurus with a powerful partial solar eclipse on April 30th. Eclipse season begins at the end of this month, and is bringing in the major change promised from the eclipse cycle that began in November of last year. This is signaling a time of manifestation and abundant breakthroughs.

ARIES RISING (OR ARIES SUN)
Aries Affirmation: I am the leader and master creator of my own life. I will not dim my light for others.
This is your season, Aries! Utilize that energy to take the lead in your own life. On April 1st, the Aries new moon will empower you to speak up for yourself and stand in your sovereignty. After all, you are a leading energy in the zodiac as the fiery first sign. This month, take a moment to reflect. Where have you allowed others to dull your shine and sparkle? The month begins with you speaking your truth—even if that truth doesn’t sit well with others. Stay strong, you fiery, fierce warrior!
Toward the second half of the month, your value, finances, and self-worth will be in the energetic spotlight as the sun moves into Taurus on April 12th. Money-related negotiations, material investments, or developing new ways to generate income will be a serious focus for you. Remember: if you don’t recognize your worth first, others won’t either. Ask for less than you deserve, and you will receive exactly that. My recommendation is simple: while you negotiate, always ask for more in order to alchemize any limiting beliefs or fears. That is how you become a money magnet.
TAURUS RISING (OR TAURUS SUN)
Taurus Affirmation: When I value myself, the universe reflects abundance back to me.
The second half of April brings an exciting time: the transition into Taurus season! Enjoy your time in the spotlight, my Venusian gods and goddesses! Yes, Venus (the relationship goddess) is your ruling planet, and the month will begin with a much-needed mindset change in this area of life. The new moon in Aries is activating your 12th house, shining a light on unconscious patterns that are holding you back. This is Taurus’ shadow: putting others first before YOU, and then feeling low vibrations as a result. Take time this month to release this limiting belief, moving forward with a mindset of abundance.
Your season officially begins on April 19th, when the sun moves into your sign. Afterwards, the most powerful new moon of the year for you will occur in the sign of Taurus on April 30th. This will activate the karmic nodes of the moon in Taurus and Scorpio, as well as the important 18-month eclipse cycle that began on November 21. Sudden changes can begin to occur pertaining to who you are, and how you show up in the world. You also can experience shifts surrounding important agreements or relationships. Throughout all of this, remember to value yourself first.
GEMINI RISING (OR GEMINI SUN)
Gemini Affirmation: I am growing and expanding towards my purpose.
Gemini, you are the zodiac’s social powerhouse! Your friends and connections are sacred to you. As April begins, the new moon in Aries will spark action in this area of your life. New opportunities through your social network may appear. You also could experience some tension surrounding friendships, pushing you to stick up for yourself. Remember to put your needs above what others want.
This month, the universe is also giving your career and life path a major boost. If you have felt stagnant or unaligned with your passions, prepare for a well-deserved breakthrough. This is due to the beautiful connection between Venus and Jupiter in Pisces on April 30th. If you have been working toward something—especially over the past 12 years—this will bring in the growth you deserve. During the second half of April, finances and money can also be a major focus.
CANCER RISING (OR CANCER SUN)
Cancer Affirmation: I release feelings of shyness, allowing my true self to shine.
Cancer, get ready: your life path and professional life is heating up in a major way this April. The new moon in Aries on April 1st will set your 10th house of career on fire, prompting you to take the lead and make progress in this area of your life. Many Crabs will feel that pressure, encouraging them to step up to the plate and reassert their natural role as an emotionally-intelligent leader. Mercury in Aries will also influence this new moon, giving you the motivation to speak with fiery conviction.
Toward the middle of the month, your attention will move towards the home and family matters with a transformative Libra full moon illuminating this area of your life on April 16th. The full moon will form a square aspect, with Pluto in Capricorn centered in your 7th house of relationships. Some of you will move or handle new contracts around your living space. Family relationships can undergo a much-needed healing process, too.
LEO RISING (OR LEO SUN)
Leo Affirmation: I release what has held me back from fully expressing myself.
Dear Lion, the month of April will kick off for you with traveling or standing in the spotlight. The new moon in Aries could be a time of adventure and vacation, as it will energize your 9th house of long-distance travel. On the other hand, this could also manifest in other ways; for instance, you may receive the opportunity to speak publicly or share your message on a grander scale. For some Leos, legal matters can also surface around the time of the new moon. Remember to pay attention to the details.
As we approach the end of the month, your attention will then turn toward your career and investments. Taurus season begins on April 19th, granting you a new mindset when it comes to your professional value. Perhaps you accepted less financially in the past, and you realize now how this limited you. Be ready to accept new opportunities that will align you with your purpose—those will appear around the new moon in Taurus on April 30th.
VIRGO RISING (OR VIRGO SUN)
Virgo Affirmation: I am cleaning my energy in order to make space for the new.
Virgo, prepare yourself for some key conversations! This month begins with an outspoken new moon in Aries on April 1st, encouraging you to discuss important financial matters. The moon, sun, and Mercury in Aries will ignite conversations regarding shared resources, taxes, loans, or the money dynamics within a marriage (if that applies to you). Recall that Aries represents the self. Where have you allowed your own silence in important matters? The cosmos is encouraging you to look out for your needs, too.
Your relationships are experiencing a major clean up this month, Virgo. Towards mid-April, you will experience two crucial planetary alignments in this area of your life. This will be between Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune in the sign of Pisces. With this event, expect positive growth when it comes to business partnerships or how you navigate love and relationships. If you’re single, someone new could pop into your world. Keep an eye out!
LIBRA RISING (OR LIBRA SUN)
Libra Affirmation: I can connect with others and still prioritize my needs.
The cosmos is making you feel bold this month, Libra—it’s time to tip the scales in your favor. Tension may arise in regards to important contracts, business partnerships, or a romantic relationship as the month begins. The new moon in Aries on April 1st will encourage you to advocate for yourself. Where have you put others before yourself? It’s time to take responsibility in order to change this disempowering dynamic.
You can potentially experience positive breakthroughs surrounding your work, health, and daily routine. This is due to Venus and Jupiter forming a positive connection in this area of your life on the same day as the New Moon in Taurus on April 30th. Some of you may receive money you are owed, or support for your work. April is a time where you can finally reap the rewards on all of the work you’ve put in over the past 12 years.
SCORPIO RISING (OR SCORPIO SUN)
Scorpio Affirmation: I am a leader who listens, supports, and empowers others.
Prepare to feel extremely busy as the month begins, Scorpion. The new moon in Aries will provide the motivation you’re craving in your 6th house of work, duty, and routine. Mercury (communication) and Chiron (wounding) are heavily influencing this lunar energy; as a result, they may bring up difficult yet healing conversations with colleagues. Perhaps you are not receiving the opportunities to be a leader that you truly deserve. This new moon will empower you to ask for that step up, or simply take it. As you make impressive strides, just remember to pace yourself.
Major relationship changes are also on the horizon for many Scorpios this month. On April 19th, Taurus season begins with the sun moving into your 7th house of partnerships. The month will conclude with a powerful new moon in Taurus. If you’re currently single, this could bring someone worthy of your time into your life. If you’re attached, finances or investments can deepen a current relationship. Remember: there’s nothing wrong with having healthy discussions around money.
SAGITTARIUS RISING (OR SAGITTARIUS SUN)
Sagittarius Affirmation: I embrace my truth creatively and share it without fear.
Sagittarius, get ready for an exciting creative project or idea to begin this month! The new moon in Aries on April 1st will kick off this bold energy in your 5th house of self-expression. You will feel aligned with your selfhood and individuality through this new idea. For other Archers, the first half of the month could also bring financial change and the need to restructure the money you earn.
As the sun moves into the sign of Taurus on April 19th, your schedule will certainly begin to fill up! Taurus season is adding new work tasks to your day, while granting you the motivation to “spring clean” your wellness. Take those crucial moments to organize yourself while honoring your body’s needs. This is also a time where the value of your work can come up. Address a key question: Are you charging what you are worth? This month, the cosmos will empower you. You are worthy!
CAPRICORN RISING (OR CAPRICORN SUN)
Capricorn Affirmation: I am honoring what I need to feel comfortable at home.
Home and family are an important theme for you this month, Capricorn. Opportunities to heal this private area of your life can come up around the new moon in Aries on April 1st. Some Capricorns could be focused on moving homes, or signing contracts in regards to changing their living space. Others may have to reassert themselves in their family relationships. Ultimately, this is the time to take inventory of your sanctuary. Create the space you need to feel comfortable.
Mid-month, your professional life will be in the forefront. This is because the full moon in Libra will begin illuminating your 10th house of public reputation and career on April 16th. The Libra moon will form a transformative aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, initiating change in this area of your life. New collaborations, partnerships, or relationships can develop during the second half of April. You can also expect your financials to stabilize around this time.
AQUARIUS RISING (OR AQUARIUS SUN)
Aquarius Affirmation: I am worthy and valuable. Abundance is my birthright.
The beginning of April starts with a bang for Aquarians, with the new moon in Aries on April 1st. This will greatly amplify your voice in your 3rd house of communication. You may have some important meetings or documents to take care of—factors that require you to take the lead. Later in the month, your attention will move toward the home and family. Where do you still allow inherited limiting beliefs to hold you back? Use this opportunity to release them, and feel empowered.
Financially, this is a positive month for many Aquarians. In April, the two most benefic planets in astrology (Venus and Jupiter in Pisces) will form a mystical connection in the area of your income. Expect positive breakthroughs and new opportunities for growth, which may arrive around April 30th. If any Aquarians have a spiritual business, you also can expect this month to be a time of expansion.
PISCES RISING (OR PISCES SUN)
Pisces Affirmation: I trust my intuition and make heart-centered decisions.
Self-worth is often linked to money; this month, you will realize your true worth. Get ready to speak up during the new moon in Aries on April 1st. The moon and sun will join Mercury and Chiron—a shift that may create tough discussions surrounding money. While this can feel out of character, this comes with positive news: the change you initiate will be for your highest good.
April is one of the most powerful months you will experience overall! Venus, the planetary goddess of love and money, is in her prime in the sign of Pisces. This month, Venus will join up with both of your planetary rulers—Jupiter and Neptune. This is extremely rare, since Neptune takes 165 years to cycle through the zodiac! As a result, you can experience positive personal growth, luck, and expansion during this time.
