Home Is Where The ♥ Is – April 2018
Relationships, family and the home are keywords this month. People need to feel, hear and see that they are loved. Be helpful, but know when to say no. Your boundaries may be challenged, so if you allow yourself to be used you may feel resentful. Are you helping or interfering? Do you think you know better? Are you absorbing the emotions of those around you? Do you worry about everything?
April is a good time to think about a new home or revamping your existing one, perhaps to accommodate parents or a multi-generational family. Perhaps you are thinking of converting a section of the house to sub-let. Providing affordable accommodation is a wonderful way to help others and help pay the bond or the rent. This April energy is conducive to teaching, and being artistic and creative. You may want to redecorate, repaint, upgrade the bathroom or kitchen or just rearrange the furniture. Wash curtains. Put some lovely scented sachets in amongst your linen and clothes. Cook for friends, family, or for the freezer for busy days ahead. Repot your plants.
Check on family members to see if they are okay.
April 2018 adds up to 15/6. This is an interesting and complex number, as it is made up of two numbers that like freedom, individuality and being busy: the 1 and the 5. Yet they add up to a 6, which is romantic love, responsibility, and the home – a bit of a stretch for the rolling stone entrepreneurial 5.
Mmmm… feels like a bit of a contradictory number, and yet maintaining individuality and freedom within a committed, loving relationship is quite appealing to me. Hence the spirited and somewhat rebellious vibe that this month will bring. Add a stubborn streak to the mix, so number 15 does not take criticism very well at all.
Pride and sensuality can get number 15 into trouble, so watch the ego and focus on balance as these can test the usually responsible and gentle 15/6 quite severely.
Focus on loving yourself. You cannot give from an empty bucket. Take time to go for an alternative healing session for body, mind and spirit, a tarot reading or a numerology reading. Plan a pampering session, and go for a massage, a mani- and pedi- and a facial. If you can’t afford it, barter! Do a swop session! Make a plan. Learn as much as you can to manifest things for the self and for others without the use of money.
- patient and kind to the self
- trusting of the inner voice to be discerning and keep it safe
- having a balanced life
- speaking up and out to have needs met
- slowing down and smelling the roses
- knowing that it is valuable
- forgiving of past mistakes of self and others
- asking the body, mind and soul what its needs are and listening
- speaking gently to the self
- resting when tired
- always developing with ongoing learning
- loving others and being lovable
- eating well
- having a hobby that gets the mind off everyday stress
- taking care of health issues and preferring natural and alternative healing wherever possible rather than opting for chemicals and surgery
This is a favourable time for love and passion. If you are single it is a good month to meet someone, and if committed a good time to rekindle some romance. This is a month for weddings – and divorces.
Wars and arguments could easily be triggered this month, so watch those emotions. Count to 10, to give the quick and overly hasty 5 time to bite the tongue and the rebellious (and sometimes egotistical) 1 time to cool down, and the normally gentle 6 a moment to think before it explodes – often because it has allowed itself to be pushed too far. Take responsibility for your actions, whatever they are, and apologise if necessary.
I see April as a month of stepping assertively into the unknown and staying in the heart space. Hopefully you found your wings last month in March. No more excuses now. Set those goals and make those changes! The downside of the number 15, means there could be self-sabotage and fear present, so look out for excuses that you make to prevent you from using your imagination and intellect, and from taking responsibility for your choices.
The greatest gift you can give yourself and others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance. Make your home a place that embraces this always.
Until next month – feel free enough to love without reserve ♥
