April’s Monthly Insight
By Taylor V. April 1, 2021
You probably already knew that Easter falls on a different date each year… but why?
Easter does not fall on a fixed date on the Gregorian calendar, which follows the cycle of the Sun and the seasons. Instead, these days follow a lunisolar calendar, similar to Jewish holidays. A Fourth Century ruling decided that the date of Easter is set for the first Sunday following the Paschal Full Moon, which is the first full moon of spring. This occurs on or shortly after the vernal equinox, otherwise known as the spring equinox. March 22nd is the earliest Easter can occur on any given year, and April 25 is the latest.
Have you ever wondered why it is tradition to dye our eggs bright colors?
Originally, the Persians and the ancient Egyptians exchanged colored eggs to celebrate the return of spring. They also used the decorated eggs as tokens of goodwill. The eggs were often colored a bright red to signify blood and the life force. To dye their eggs, they would typically be boiled with different herbs depending on which color they desired.
April’s birth flowers are the daisy and the sweet pea. The daisy conveys loyal love, innocence, and purity. Whereas the sweet pea represents blissful pleasure, they can also be used to say good-bye. The birthstone for April is the diamond. For those fortunate to be born in April, their birthstone is one of the most prized gemstones of all!

Set your white candles in a circle with your selenite in the center. The sandalwood incense can be placed on the left side and your cup for the tea on the right side. As you light each candle, say “ bring light , love and healing to all. Light the incense and allow yourself to be cleansed by the smoke. Pour the boiling water mindfully into the cup. As you wait for it steep, focus your intention and envision yourself covered with white light.
When the tea is ready, swirl it in a clockwise motion while focusing on your white light spreading like a blanket over your home and loved ones. When you are ready, drink your tea slowly. Feel the warmth spread through your body and clear out unwanted anxieties and fears. When your tea is finished, you will feel nourished, happy and heathier than ever before.” Blow out the candles.

Spiritual Uplifts Monthly Grid
By Shayna Payne April 1, 2021
Crystal Grid for Connection
Step 1: Prior to starting your grid, cleanse your space with sage and/or palo santo.
Step 2: Close your eyes and imagine you are seeing an expanse of nothing but pure white energy. A light shines from within your heart that lifts you up off your feet while you float in this white energy. You feel at peace, that you are safe and you are loved. Sit with this feeling of connectedness between you and the pure white energy of your guides and angels. Set the intention that you would like them to interfere in your life (specify specific aspects here if you like) and ask them for their guidance. Thank them for watching over you and for their help. When you are ready, slowly open your eyes.
Step 3: Using a cloth grid or wood plank, create 2 overlapping triangles or 2 overlapping squares using a combination of the crystals listed below.
Bolivianite– A powerful crystal for empaths, it allows you to create and uphold boundaries which will strengthen your energy because you are not giving away your power.
Angel Aura Clear Quartz– A high vibrational crystal, it will help you to evaluate and clear your mind in order to find the path to transform your life.
Angelite– The stone for communicating with your guides and angels, this crystal will sooth your mind and promote focus and tranquility so you can hear the higher realms.
Rainbow Moonstone– A stone of transformation, it will connect you to divine inspiration and help you balance your energies in order to channel your own intuition.
Shungite– A stone of purification, it will clear your mind, body, spirit and environment of toxins and dense energy and fill the space with love and light.
Step 4: Place a crystal generator of your choice in the center of your grid. Rainbow Aura generators are wonderful in crystal grids in order to magnify the power and light of your intention for manifestation.
Step 5: Speak out loud your intentions to activate your grid.

April 2021 is a 9 Universal Month, the number of completion and reward. As your main priority will be completing your remaining tasks for this cycle, do not be surprised if you feel busier than usual this month. The good news is that all your hard work will come to fruition.
This Nine Universal Month is made of the 4 from April and the 5 of the 2021 year. While nine is the number of achievements, the 4 reminds us that we still have some work to put in to achieve our best results. One caveat of the 9 energy is that procrastination can become an issue. To help us balance what we need to do is the organizational and disciplinary energy of the 4, along with the adaptable energy of the five.
Nine is also considered a humanitarian number and encourages charity and actions for the betterment of all. If the reward for your hard work is financial, you are encouraged to share that with others. It could also mean that your “reward” benefits not only you but others/your community. For example, maybe your goals have been to gain more education. Your accomplishment may not be a degree but sharing the knowledge you have acquired with someone who needs the information.
