This is a beautiful time of rebirth where the new is being activated. There is a lighter and fresher feel to the incoming energies, which brings some clarity to our lives and our current experiences.

The universe provides us with guidance in many ways, but perhaps the most common of these is number synchronicity.
ThoughtCo: Make Your Own Besom
The besom is the traditional witch’s broom. It’s associated with all kinds of legend and folklore, including the popular notion that witches fly around in the night on a broomstick. In addition to being good for playing Quidditch, the besom is a great addition to your collection of magical tools.

MBG: Starting A New Project Is The Move This Week, According To Your Horoscope
Here, the AstroTwins break down the challenges that could come at the beginning of this week—and the opportunities that’ll follow them at the weekend’s new moon.
Neptune, aka the master of illusions, could make this week a little bit dodgy, especially on Friday, April 9, when the hazy planet crashes into a tricky square with feisty Mars in Gemini.

Somehow, it can be difficult to find silence and stillness.
This is a complaint I hear from most of my meditation students.
They want their meditation practice to have that vibe of quiet, and everything inside them is always so loud. We all know this feeling.
Treehugger: 10 Gorgeously Colored Eggs, Straight From Birds
While the egg as a symbol of new life has been around for as long as humans have been able to think metaphorically, dyeing them seems to be a (relatively) more recent tradition.
EarthSky News: Moon, Jupiter, Saturn before sunup on April 5-8
On April 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2021, let the waning crescent moon help guide your eye to the largest and second-largest planets of the solar system: Jupiter and Saturn, respectively. Because day by day the moon always travels eastward (in the direction of sunrise) relative to the backdrop stars (and planets) of the zodiac, watch for the moon to sweep past Saturn and then Jupiter in the days ahead.
Patheos-Pagan: Autonomy Over Integrity
Sometimes I sit down to write in this blog and I wonder what it is about. I’d intended it to be faithfully and completely death oriented, but quickly realized that sometimes I’m going to have to use this platform to shine a light on issues that are important to me. Usually though, it’s still about grieving; even if it’s just me grieving something I had put a measure of faith into.

Inner Journey: STRETCH YOURSELF
“People are defeated by easy, victorious and cheap successes more than by adversity.”
— Benjamin Disraeli
Today’s social standard is one of mediocrity. The status quo rarely challenges our individual creative power.
Create a brand new world for yourself, one that meets your deepest needs. By doing so, you will help raise the quality of consciousness of the entire world. Use your imagination! Sing your own song!
“Success means fulfilling your own dreams, singing your own song, dancing your own dance, creating from your heart and enjoying the journey, trusting that whatever happens, it will be OK. Creating your own adventure!”
— Elana Lindquist
A Note from the Universe
Do you know the real reason the rich keep getting richer?
No, besides interest income.
No, besides “abundance” actually seeking them out.
No, besides me pulling strings for them.
Right. The thoughts they think. Thoughts anyone can think. Thoughts that make all those other things happen.
Today’s Recipe: Lemon Blueberry Pavlova
My favorite way to enjoy lemon meringue is with pavlova. The meringue base cools and dries out slowly, creating a crispy, crunchy crust on the outside which contrasts beautifully with a soft, sticky center. Topped with an intense lemon curd filling, fresh blueberries, and a homemade blueberry sauce, this dessert takes a little bit of time to make but is also simple and easy to pull off

“Through kindness, you can change your fate.
-Nguyen T. Nguyen (1992)
It’s amazing how far a good attitude will get us. It’s the lemons into lemonade theory. Just add a little sugar and look what happens! There is always a better way. Use your power, your intellect, your creativity. Be kind. Be loving. And you’ll soon taste the sweetness of life.

Daily Tarot: Justice
Take everything and everyone a little bit more seriously today, without getting grim about it. People may bring you requests or problems that they think are shaking up their world, and you should offer at least a token respect for their worries and needs. None of this puts any pressure on you, unless you get emotionally involved. Remember, you have neither the power nor responsibility to fix it all.
