As we move into the warmth of the growing spring, the season is changing, the earth is blooming, and the energy is shifting with a promise of rebirth and new beginnings just beyond the horizon. With opportunity in the air, this is a truly auspicious time for wiping the slate clean and moving forward with a fresh new attitude.With that said, the sun will soar through the fiery Aries sign at the start of the month, encouraging the signs to start taking more of a head-on approach with their goals. As a result, the signs will likely begin to feel more spontaneous, social, and optimistic this month, especially when it comes to pursuing their dreams. With the abundant and opportunistic energies of the growing light of the sun, intentions set in prior months are now beginning to rise to fruition, allowing us to make bigger moves for the start of the new Zodiac year. To go along with this, we also have many planetary changes occurring this month, mostly following Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, and Venus, welcoming in lust, luck, and action into our space. With that said, Mars and Jupiter could bring changes to your attitude and approach towards your goals, while Mercury can add a sharpness to our tongue, allowing us to be bolder with our words and actions. Lastly, Venus could stir changes in love, allowing partners to connect deeper and overcome issues of the past. To end the month, we will then enter the sign of the Taurus on April 20th, allowing the signs to regain balance in their lives after a busy last few weeks and focus their attention on nurturing themselves more mentally, physically, and spiritually. And since the Taurus is an earth sign, this is also a time of calmness and slow but steady movement after the raging fire sign’s ruling, allowing the signs to build a more strategic plan for the path ahead and look at their goals with more of a long-term vision.
Overall, April is predicted to be a month of action, optimism, and transformation as all the signs begin to move into the next chapter of their lives swiftly with the season’s change.

Bruja/o/x culture (brujería), stem from an ancient set of mystical beliefs and practices that have been passed down through generations in Latin America. It has its roots in the indigenous spiritual traditions of the region, as well as elements from African and European cultures and today’s Instagram hashtags #bruja and # brujería have over 2M posts combined.
As other magical practices, brujería orbits honoring spirits and deities, divination, nurturing specific traditional healing methods such as curanderismo, and rituals to protect oneself from negative energy. Get yer charms out!
In Latin American countries like Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Cuba, Colombia, and Brazil it is still a vibrant part of daily life for many people, though there are some variations depending on location. The original practice was brought over by Spanish conquistadors during their colonization of the Americas, and the stories say the cobblestone streets were “paved in slave bones”—see a pattern of repressed magic much? Seems everywhere we turn there’s a need to rise up from the lid put on us for being natural… No longer, though. You watch! This next 20 years will have diverse magical cultures openly practicing without fear, the time is nigh 😊🌿☽🌕☾
Now evolved into something unique to each region, brujería remains a source of immense pride for those who practice this tradition, which continues to hold strong despite attempts to marginalize or even eradicate it

Are you looking for insight into your archetypal planetary vibes? Do you want to know what the stars have in store for you in May of 2023? We Spirit Nesters can help you to gain insight into the events going on. With Pluto’s ingress to Aquarius, the upcoming trends vibrate with Uranian energy, so expect the unexpected! From love and romance to career and financials, May prepares us for individual and collective freedom or to take steps towards clarity and avoiding potential pitfalls. Read on to get into the flow of your elements and how each sign expresses itself in what's coming up!
Astrological Movements: In May, we see the Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Gemini, which will inspires an increase in mental acuity with a skosh of practicality. This is a sweet, sweet time for learning new skills or tackling projects that require careful attention to detail. However, it's also important to be aware of potential communication issues that may arise due to this pairing. You'll want to think carefully before fully speaking your mind during this month! This isn’t to say withhold info, but just be prepared to take the repercussions if you do, from both sides of the coin…
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) can find themselves feeling energetically active during this month as they take on new challenges with enthusiasm and learn through friction, that’s what squares do, and there’s potentially enormous power in that, though not always 100% comfortable. We all know what kind of magic happens outside that zone, though, yes?
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo Capricorn) can expect stability and security thanks to the positive energy flowing through their world right now, but it’s super important that you know in which house Aquarius sits, because that security can be going through do-over renos, you feel me? And we’re not just talking light stucco here, we’re talking a new roof level of shift, lol.
Air signs (Gemini Libra Aquarius) can prepare themselves for exciting conversations as creative ideas come into play – but don't forget that words have power too and can anchor you to stuff that you might not have anticipated! The intellect is in full gear and, depending on where your moon sits, you could be having emotional epiphanies in May that will set stuff free that you might have been holding onto for too long.
Water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) can experience heightened emotions during this period which could lead to solidified feelings emerging that you FINALLY understand, so make sure you take time out for yourself to feel them all the way through, up from the heart center and like a pinball machine bounce them around until their out on paper or in song or other creative force. Emotional inventory always feels correct and May has the vibes to take you through with the strength of an ox 😉
