‘To be a gentle mover in a swiftly spinning world. To be present. To extract the poetry. To only entertain the real. To listen. To seek the genuine. To stand inside of the stretch, the momentum, the tall discomfort of change. Knowing you don’t need to rush the practice, or ever fake or force a thing’ — Victoria Erickson. Rhythms and Roads.
In Numerology, the month of April represents:
Four ~ Stability. Discipline. Endurance.
‘Gently Does It’
It’s up to you to turn your dreams into reality and April is a good month to make sure your goals are on track.
Get ready to batten down the hatches and get serious about your future. It’s time to work hard and sharpen your skills. Slow down, steady your pace, and become more methodical about which goals you want to focus on, making sure your plans are on track.
This is a more serious month requiring hard work to set the foundation for whatever you’re working on: job, relationships, health, or family. You’ll need to forgo happy hours and stay a little later at the office to finish up that big report or file, complete the last part of the chapter you’re writing, or think through the way you’re wanting to systematise your project. Slow and steady wins the race.
Consciously take time for your self-care. Remember that all work and no play makes life dull. Once you realise that relaxing and having fun can be useful, you will do them more.
April will also test you with some old family issues bubbling to the surface needing to be resolved or dealt with differently. It is also time to attend to health matters – go get that check-up. In some manner, create a solid foundation for your well being.
The ‘Four’ influence of April, is all about building something that lasts. We all know that foundations have to be laid at the base of any structure and that can involve lots of digging and dirty work before anything starts to show. Frustrations can be an issue. You may feel boxed in and bedevilled with the details. What you need is patience, because you will win through in the end.
Get a plan, put down roots and secure things.
Your April mantra should be:
‘Slow and steady wins the race’
In 2021 we also have the underlying influence of the Universal month of:
Nine; A number of completion, in preparation for the next new cycle.
It’s a great time for decluttering.
In all that you do, remember to let go of the things that no longer serve you.
