April has two themes: “Looking Forward” and “Resolution”

It may seem awkward to contemplate the two themes working together, however they are both active this month and will be influencing you at different times. Resolution has to do with the movement around what was stirred up by the first eclipse last month. Whatever issue you are embroiled in as we start the month that feels unresolved or feels like something needs to come about to move it forward will be influenced by the “Resolution” theme. If you are already on your way towards a known shift or change, or have released something big in your life and are ready to move on, you will be more influenced by the “Looking Forward” theme. And you may well experience both as you navigate through these next few weeks.

The most important attitude to have this month is a discipline of not looking back or obsessing about past disappointments, releases, changes, trauma, loss, failure, and all the things that are in the past and out of your current control. If you are to use the monthly influences well, you will need to embrace this time as not only a new chapter but a new volume of the story of your life which means being willing to complete the old one and create a new table of contents.

The new table of contents is a list of your new intentions, not the ones you keep recreating year after year. This is a new time and should be honored as a portal to a completely new approach to your present life. In your intentions, don’t ask for the same things the same way. Be creative, innovative and fresh as you contemplate how to be authentic and true to yourself, your needs, your dreams and your future. There can be no resolution if you are stuck in the past and wallowing in regret, anger or disappointment. The position of victim is not one of power nor will it support any resolution or looking forward towards the future. If you find yourself there, examine all the choices you have, and then be proactive about making one that turns things around so you can begin looking forward instead of being mired in the past. Usually this choice will include letting go of something and shifting an attitude, belief or pattern.

Early in the month we have a new moon and total solar eclipse that is one of the most powerful events of the year. Eclipses can shake things up big time and this one is no exception. The transformational energy it offers is a given. It is how you will use it that informs how it will manifest. For some it will be a subtle shift in belief, attitude and intention, and for some, a more radical shift in actual direction and action. Instead of trying to control the outcomes, pay attention to what is unfolding and trust that you are being guided in the right direction even if you cannot see it clearly.

The theme of looking forward instead of regurgitating the past includes the necessary objective of reclaiming your power and authenticity so you can set your new intentions from that place of truth. This may require a certain discipline of saying no to what doesn’t feel right for you and acknowledging the diversity in personal truths and approaches to life. It also requires neutrality as you release the tethers that could drag you back into the past. Remember that the past rearranges itself energetically based on how you approach the future. You cannot heal the past by remaining there. The present is where the power is and the choice is yours to either look back or look forward. This does not negate or ignore any wisdom you may have gleaned from lessons learned. It simply puts you in the position of being able to recognize where you are headed and take the right path as it unfolds. The path could be unexpected so keep your eyes wide open and pay attention.

How the month shows up:


This time could be challenging for the personality. You could experience a feeling of overwhelm that has nothing to do with what is actually on your plate. Energetic sensations of dread or fear need to be gently pushed over into the expression of inspiration and excitement. Looking forward can bring up anxiety or despair if you keep connecting the future with the past. Adopt the mantra “all is changing and all will be different and I trust spirit to set me on the right path”. Comfort and self-care will be important components as well as finding good ways to ground, take time for yourself and say no to things that do not feel like your responsibility. 

This is a tremendous time of growth, healing and reclaiming personal power. Where, when and how have you divorced yourself from your power for survival, karma or other situations? It is time to call it back. Be willing to entertain a new direction as you pay attention to the doors that are closing and the ones that are opening. Don’t engage in petty arguments and any need to be right. There will be times this month that support going inward to examine your truth and times that are supportive to reigniting passion, creativity and enthusiasm for juicing up your relationships, vitality, will and desires. Be flexible and let go of any old pictures of how you thought your life should have unfolded. This is a new story, a new chapter, a new book.


Relationships have been in the spotlight lately as points of growth as well as mirrors for personal truth, authenticity, boundaries and power. This month they are again in focus as we navigate and process and resolve what has been stirred up with the first eclipse. Good practices to have this month are: “Don’t take anything personally”, “Be responsible for what is yours and set boundaries against what isn’t”, “Tell the truth” and “Reclaim your power”.

Because of the theme of looking forward and all the energy around new directions and inspiring intentions, all relationships can benefit from a bit more creativity, acknowledgement and nurturing. You find new people coming into your life that feel very familiar and past relationships falling away as in any time of great transition. If you are changing a pattern that has to do with relationships, honor that change by actually changing a routine or habit you have with a relationship close to you. Add something new, do something out of the ordinary, and most of all, practice seeing everyone as spirit.


The body is resistant to change so be gentle with it. Aches, pains and sudden injuries to joints and bones are all symptoms of breaking patterns and moving constipated energy. It is a good month to support the kidneys, liver and digestion. It is also a good month to pay attention to what you are putting into all of your bodies, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Watch your physical diet as well as your emotional diet. Best to stay away from people and situations you consider toxic. It is also best to discipline your thoughts especially when they start going down the trail of negative what ifs. And a good, grounded, manageable, daily spiritual practice is a must. 

Think about “feeding” yourself with positive, high frequency and nurturing foods, environments, social situations, people, contemplations, visualizations, beauty, anything creative, art, music and healthy habits and disciplines. Drink plenty of water as detoxification will be taking place on many levels and it is good to lubricate your joints. Have a good exercise routine but don’t overdo it. Pace yourself physically, emotionally and mentally. More is not necessarily better and if life throws you a hard ball, trust that it is all part of the plan.

Here is the very short version of issues pertaining to the four quadrants of the body: Upper Right Side: (arm/ shoulder/ hand/ fingers): issues around Knowledge. Upper Left side: issues around Power. Lower Right Side: (pelvis/hip/leg/foot) issues around Love. Lower Left Side: issues around Support. The closer to the torso the injury is, the older the pattern. Bones and teeth hold the oldest patterns.

This is a good month to reevaluate what is working and what is not. Unexpected changes, new directions, taking risks, eliminating and pruning what needs it, new collaborations, innovative problem solving, sustainability and fresh approaches are all themes this month for business, partnerships and projects. At the core is your own truth about what works for you despite what others may identify as a road to success or a structure for progress. The eclipse energy may open doors to a new direction that was not on the radar before. Be present and pay attention to what is coming into your field and be very disciplined about not looking back to pre-judge what may transpire in the future based on what has happened in the past.

By the end of the month you should have good clarity on where this area of your life is moving, who and what your support system is, and what your new intentions are. Remember to keep things fresh, new, simple, effortless, fun and satisfying.


We say this every month lately, however, “expect the unexpected” still holds true this month even more than usual as we are not only at the mercy of the natural environment but also of those that provide us the means for travel, transportation, communication, forecasting and planning. Staying flexible, accepting, neutral and resilient is always a good idea. The personality always looks to blame when things don’t work out according to plan. If you find yourself there, turn the attitude into one of wonder, curiosity and humor. You can choose to laugh or to cry when you find yourself in an uncomfortable environmental predicament that is either weather or human related. Finding humor is a better medicine.

Regarding your personal environment, since this is a time of looking forward, you may have more impetus to get rid of things that don’t inspire you regardless of where they came from. Re-gift, re-purpose and give away from a place of generosity instead of loss. Contemplate something new and radical like a remodel or change you never considered before as a way to stretch your imagination. You may even consider a move to a new location that you have not thought of before. How can you upgrade your environment and raise the vibration? What is more aligned with your truth and authenticity?


April 1-7

We start the month off with Mercury going retrograde allowing for a deeper dive into contemplating personal truth, boundaries, the excess that has us overwhelmed, what supports us and what does not. This is a time where restructuring the present to allow for necessary resolution will support “looking forward” and the setting of intentions in a new way. This requires a certain acceptance of the way things are and the willingness to have everything be different in the future.

We are in between the 2 eclipses, with the first one having stirred the pot back in March, dredging up some unexpected material to deal with, heal, reframe, process and resolve. This is a good opportunity to begin to reclaim your personal power and find that place of confidence, self-worth and motivation within. This is also a good time to set yourself up with good practices for the body, mind a spirit. Stay present, aware and out of unnecessary drama. There will be times when it is important to hold your ground and set your boundaries and times where you may need to compromise a bit and choose your campaigns wisely. It is also an excellent time frame to prepare for the next eclipse on the 8th which is a big one.

Join Jose for a remote healing with some good wisdom in preparation for this New Moon/Eclipse. Thursday, April 4 at 7PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

April 8

New Moon in Aries with a total Solar Eclipse is Monday, April 8 at 12:20 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). The eclipse begins at approximately 11:25 and is total at approximately 12 noon depending on where you are in the Mountain Time Zone. This is a super moon and considered one of the most powerful transformational times of the year. It will influence most of the month so you have plenty of time to work with its influences. 

This New Moon could bring a completely new direction into your life especially if you have recently experienced a loss, change, shift or sudden opportunity. Doors may open that were not there before and new ideas and ways of problem solving could become clearly possible. 

This eclipse is grounded and anchored in future energy, hence the theme for the month of “looking forward” instead of being trapped in the past. Anyone who is resistant to change or attached to an old set of intentions may have some difficulty during this time. Staying present and aware is the key as well as staying out of judgment, blaming and disappointment. Take some time to reframe your intentions, infusing them with new energy and inspiration. This time also offers a portal that is an invitation to take the healing of old wounds and turn the reclaimed residual energy into your base of power and wisdom.

April 9-16

On the heels of the powerful eclipse we could experience resolution, breakthroughs and a clearer path ahead of us. Looking forward becomes important as well as the acknowledgement of what areas of your life are ready for transformation. You don’t actually have to effort or struggle to know the next step. It will become apparent to you perhaps even in unexpected ways. Keep your eyes open for new inspiration and opportunity to do things differently. It is a powerful time to face fears, to face doubt and to acknowledge anxiety as a fabrication of the mind and “too many thinking”. Knowledge is an inner knowing that has to do with your truth and not a manual of definitions. Trust your intuition and do what you can to stay inspired and motivated and looking forward during this time.

April 17-23

Power issues are up during this time and you may witness the fallout played out on the world stage as well as in your own life. Always ask if something is yours to fix, heal or handle? More often than not, it is not your responsibility. Choose your “diet” of what enters into your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies carefully as the “diet” will influence how you are navigating the aftermath of the eclipse influence. Continue working with anything new, setting new intentions, exploring new directions, new relationships, new ideas and new solutions. If there has been something unresolved, this time frame should bring progress and clarity to that issue. There may be some letting go that needs to happen but do it with neutrality and a minimum of dwelling on the past.

There is a rare energetic opportunity around the 20th for new innovations in sustainability, technological advancements, financial understandings and expansion in how we view reality. You can personally take advantage of this powerful time by reviewing your own sustainability and life technology and invite something completely new into your life.

April 23

Full Moon in Scorpio is Tuesday, April 23, at 5:48 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). More on this Full Moon will be sent in a Power Path update our mailing list (click here to join)

Join Lena for a powerful remote shamanic healing in the aftermath of this Full Moon, and working with the energies available at this time. Wednesday, April 24, 7PM MDT.

April 24-30

As Mercury turns direct and an influence of renewal enters the picture, look for anything that has been paused or on hold to restart with a new face and new approaches. This time frame supports clearer communication as well as taking a risk on something that feels right. A leap of faith and a confident step forward with your eyes on the future and an attitude of positivity is the recipe to follow. We get a burst of energy and a surge of power right at the end that provides an opportunity for moving forward in right action with confident decisions, clarity and hope. Don’t overthink the actions that feel right and make sure they are not motivated by old intentions but driven by ones that are fresh and new.

Have a great month!
