The month of April has been regarded as a sacred month for Aphrodite, the Grecian goddess of love and beauty. Its name is derived from aperit, a Latin word that means “to open.” Because April is considered to be a growing season, this name refers to how the flowers and trees begin to “open up” during warm spring weather.
Aries is this month’s zodiac sign until April 20, when Taurus takes its position in the stars from April 20 to May 21. April babies have a diamond as their birthstone, which represents clarity and purity. Its birth flowers are the Daisy and Sweet Pea, which are perfect additions to a springtime flower bed. Keep your eye on the skies from April 16 – April 26 for the Lyrids meteor shower. Its peak usually occurs on April 22.
Did you know the first full week of April is officially National Library Week? Our metaphysical library at Spiritual Uplifts hosts a wide supply of books that range in topics to assist with your personal and spiritual growth!

Full moon ritual for April: “Stress relief”
The ritual makes problems seem less complicated and easy to resolve. You should feel cleansed and rejuvenated.
You will need:
Lavender spray: Creates peace and attracts the flower essence magic.
Blue sage: Helps attract desire and does a deep cleansing before the spell.
Two white candles: For protection.
One yellow candle and blue candle: The yellow candle washes away the problem and the blue brings peace.
A daisy, white or yellow, in a vase: The daisy magic helps with crisis, overworking, stress, overthinking, and overtiredness.
Red pen and paper: Write on the paper with the red pen what you desire.
Glass of water: To pour into the vase and drink.
Put one white candle to the right of your altar and the other to the left. Place the yellow and blue candles in the middle of the altar. Place your vase on the right side of the altar. Position the glass of water next to the vase. Now place your paper that you wrote your desire on under the vase. Use the blue sage to cleanse the area you are working in. Now spray the lavender spray while creating a circle going clockwise. The circle should be
around your altar and the area you are working in. Light the two white candles and call in your protection: Say, “I now call upon the mighty and powerful 4 Archangels Michael, Raphael, Ariel, and Uriel to stand in front of
me and keep me protected and Fill me with love and light.” Now light your yellow and blue candles while visualizing all your stress and worries leaving your body as you feel lighter and happier. Take the daisy out of the vase. Hold the flower up to your nose and breathe in the essence. Say “by the power of this daisy I inspire the influence of the flower essence to show me its charm. In the work I succeed it causes no harm to none. Mode it be.“ Now put your daisy back in the vase and take the glass of water pour some in the vase and drink the rest.
Enjoy the ritual

The universe has a wonderful way of giving us time to recharge. April is a great example, as this month’s Universal number is a seven, the number of reflection. Last month, we saw the fruits of our labor bloom. This month, we will be able to sit back, relax and take in all that we have achieved.
Seven is also the number associated with learning and solitude. Now that our tasks are moving forward, this is our time to get back to those activities that bring us joy: finish that book you’ve been putting off; take the class you’ve been wanting to study; do what makes YOU happy. Enjoy your time of solitude and reflection.
If you found yourself taking care of others last month, this is your opportunity to recharge and prepare for the months ahead. The important thing for us is to continue doing what we’ve been doing these past months, but remember that sometimes we need to just let things happen and let go. Be proud of all you’ve done and what is yet to come!
