The full moon has long been considered a symbol of wisdom and intuition. We feel its connection every month when it lights the night sky. Many of us feel more energetic and alert during the full phase of the moon.
MBG: What Your Birth Month Color Says About You, From The Creator Of Colorstrology
You likely already know that each birth month has a designated birthstone and even a birth month flower—but did you know each month also has a specific color? In colorstrology, every month (and every day of the year, actually) has its own special hue with an accompanying meaning.

Treehugger: What to See in the Night Sky for April 2022
The start of galaxy season, a parade of planets, and a meteor shower all feature this month.
While March gets to officially welcome spring, it’s April that truly kicks down the door on our return to warmer weather. Nowhere, perhaps, is this more evident than in the evening hours,
Patheos-Pagan: Learning to love your body – unconditionally.
MARCH 30, 2022 BY KATIE GERRARD
What is Unconditional Body Acceptance and why is it so liberating?
Unconditional body acceptance for many people is moving away from a lifetime of social conditioning. It turns its head on the subconscious beliefs we might have held for the entirety of our lives in terms of what ‘good’ bodies ‘should’ look and behave like.

FILL UP YOUR TANK
“How do we keep our inner fire alive? Two things, at minimum, are needed: an ability to appreciate the positives in our life – and a commitment to action. Every day, it’s important to ask and answer these questions: ‘What’s good in my life?’ and ‘What needs to be done?'”
I have found there’s a very different quality to my action when it springs from a sense of abundance as opposed to a feeling of being impoverished.
When I sense I’m not good enough or that I don’t have enough, I feel driven to be better and to have more. Whatever I do takes effort – there’s an element of struggle involved. And this makes sense because there’s no fuel – I’m working on an empty tank.
When I’m feeling abundant, I act out of my own inspiration. I’m rich and full and so the energy flows naturally. This action at times feels almost effortless.
It’s important to remember that we don’t need money to be abundant. All we need is appreciation of all that we have.
” …what I focus on in life is what I get. And if I concentrate on how bad I am or how wrong I am or how inadequate I am, if I concentrate on what I can’t do and how there’s not enough time in which to do it, isn’t that what I get every time? And when I think about how powerful I am, and when I think about what I have left to contribute, and when I think about the difference I can make on this planet, then that’s what I get. You see, I recognize that it’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do about it.”
— W. Mitchell
A Note from the Universe
Would it help to be reminded, that there’s no problem so great that you won’t one day be grateful for it?
That there’s no friend you’ve ever had, who won’t always love you?
And that there’s no dream you’ve ever dreamt, that doesn’t already exist?
Not bad, huh?

“The natural healing force in each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.”
Spring has sprung! Doesn’t it feel great? This is a time of rejuvenation and renewal. A new cycle has started. Just as we can shed our winter coats, we can slough off our negativity, wash away our old attitudes, and begin again. Our lives will reflect our new outlook, bright and clear!

Daily Tarot: The Moon
If you’re feeling vulnerable or in a vulnerable or fragile position, take half a step back and give yourself more breathing room. You’re actually doing fine, but if that’s not your perception then nothing will convince you otherwise. If you need a break or a little time off, see if you can arrange it, if only for a few hours. This is not a show of weakness. Take care of yourself.
