“We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.” ~ May Sarton
April calls you to live from your heartspace. This month lifts you above your obstacles, or helps you to blaze a trail through them. Expect magical insights and guidance to help light the path ahead. It’s time to believe in yourself and your dreams even if no-one else yet believes. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Truth brings us.
Truth speaks of the importance of being able to take off your mask and let people see you the way that you really are. But it’s also about being protective and protecting your inner truth or those tender parts of yourself when you need to. This is an act of self-love and an honouring of your self-worth.
So this is really a message of discernment – knowing when to show yourself and when it’s actually okay to mask or hide or protect aspects of yourself from judgment or from ridicule. This week you’re urged to know yourself and to put thought into knowing when to share.
Truth is also about evaluating your relationships and knowing who you can trust and who you can be yourself with. There will always be people who are judgmental and unsupportive – keep your precious and tender energies and ideas away from people who would ridicule, reject or smash them down. Instead, look for people who can champion the authentic you and the gifts you seek to share with the world.
Truth asks you to look at where you are not being honest with yourself. Look to where you are numbing yourself with food, alcohol, work, sex or drugs and ask ‘Why am I doing this? What am I really feeling?’
Be brave enough to examine your life honestly this week to make sure that your inner truth is reflected and supported in your outer journey.
Most of all, remember that as much as self-reflection and self-awareness are important skills in your life, so is the ability to laugh at yourself and not take everything so seriously. Look to places where your life or your attitude would benefit from ‘lightening up’, and do your best not to give yourself or anyone else a hard time.
Supportive crystals this week?
Malachite is a stone to help you overcome perceived limitations. It is a stone of manifestation and abundance that gifts focus and resilience. Amethyst helps you to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and to make wise decisions. Green Jade works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Citrine (pictured) supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow.
Helpful essential oils?
Wild Orange essential oil supports your Inner Child, and fosters creativity, curiosity and an upbeat mood about life – Wild Orange uplifts mood and replaces anxiety with a grounded optimism too. It’s my favourite oil to use when I am anxious or feeling flat.
Sandalwood is a fabulous oil for keeping you grounded and assisting with overcoming fear, exhaustion and overwhelm. It will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids mindful awareness and intuition. These oils can be diffused on their own or in combination.
I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Truth’, is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different from the meaning found in a book.
