April Quotes

“And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant

MBG: April 2023 Monthly Horoscope From The AstroTwins

This April is about taking bold risks, then pausing to integrate. Last month served up two massive cosmic changes. On March 7, Saturn moved into Pisces for the first time since 1996 and Pluto took its first dip into the Aquarian seas since 1798. And this April 20, eclipse season begins, as a double-header Aries new moon arrives as a solar eclipse.

Exemplore: Lessons in Magical Herbalism: Dandelion

Dandelion Magical Properties
I remember when I was little, I thought dandelions were just the sweetest little gifts of the earth. Every spring, those cheerful little yellow blossoms would start dotting the roadside patches of grass, bursting from between the cracks in the sidewalk and dotting the rare patches of lawn across Brooklyn. When they turned white, who could resist blowing away those seeds?

Inner Journey:


“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.”
— Stephen Vincent Benet

What’s needed for a new relationship with time and life?

Intention — Get really clear about what you want.

Desire — How much do you want something new for yourself? Know your motivation. Desire brings the energy for change.

Belief and/or willingness to trust you can have what you want. If belief is lacking, can you believe in the possibility that you can find a new way of living?

Perseverance, discipline — It takes time and effort to change attitudes and habits. We can’t expect a new life overnight.

Acceptance, both of what’s happening now and of who we are. Until we honestly and openly accept our present situation, we cannot change it.

A willingness to try something new.

“It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. … It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking. So many of us changed our lives when we heard a biological clock and decided to have kids. But that sound is a murmur compared to the tolling of mortality.”
— Anna Quindlen


A Note from the Universe

Would it be as much fun if you never stopped laughing? If there were never any clouds? If you were never challenged? If you were never alone? If you never heard the whole truth when it hurt? If you always knew what would happen, what to do, and where to go?

Or would you be like, “Beam me up, Bro!”

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Things may not be going the way you like, but this is no time to give up. Whatever went wrong yesterday or last year is no excuse to stop trying to make things right. Be honest with yourself and do what you can to at least not make matters worse. There’s nothing that can’t be forgiven, repaired or replaced. Keep the faith and keep going.
