Love Notes: Week Apr 7-14, 2023

Brief love reading for each of the signs. Be sure to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for an expanded perspective. Your April Asto-Tarotscope forecast is here.

Underlying Theme for All the Signs: I’m not sure who the originator is of the phrase, “cream rises to the top,” but it’s a fitting description of your possibility for stepping into the limelight. A victory is offered through the open give and take exchange with others of assistance and support when unexpected opportunities arrive that give you the chance to showcase your best. This is a week when people in positions of power may be willing to open doors or advance your interests. But not everyone is rooting for your rise. Colette Baron-Reid offers the affirmation, “I remain aware of shadows and people who have trouble basking in the warm light of higher awareness. I bless them but do not dim my own beacon.” This sound advice encourages you to stay elevated by maintaining a higher vibration. Your own self-respect validates that you deserve to feel exalted, inspired, and proud of reaching a breakthrough or achieving an important goal that sets you apart from but not above others. It requires profound listening to your own inner workings to determine what behaviors, relationships, environments, physical sustenance, or work is healthy for you and what is not in order to release any lies, both internal and external, that perpetuate confusion or uncertainty. This week, say hello to your highest self.
