Welcome April! The Spring Maidens are blooming and slowly but surely spreading the promise of Spring throughout the land. This month brings the last kisses from Winter and to herald the transition, the Storm Goddesses are rumbling and rain-making almost daily.
MotherHouse has a lot happening this month, including the New Moon (Kali!) and Full Moon (Green Tara!) online rituals and meditations. Check in on the Goddess Alive Radio schedule for great interviews this month and the moon schedule.
Mystery School of the Goddess has something for everyone in our current offerings, plus some exciting new courses will be launching in April, including sacred sexuality, more Goddesses, Shakti practices, and tarot courses coming! Follow Mystery School of the Goddess Facebook for any current course specials.
Tune into the cosmic weather with Audrey Alison’s horoscopes which are a wonderful blend of tarot and astrology! See the April Horoscopes here.
Take a breath! Bathe in the rains of April and wash off the month of eclipses and that heavy-as-youknowwhat Saturn Retrograde station. Things should lighten up and now we can really begin to nurture our intentions into fabulous growth!
Blessings for your month!
