Astrology Forecast: April 2016 Spring is Here!

Spring is here! With the equinox behind us and Mars in Sagittarius for next couple of months, April could be a passionate agent for involvement in progressive social movements and change. Additionally, the Lunar Beltane takes place April 21st! Beltane is a traditional time to renew and reawaken our fire within. And while the Full Moon is a symbol of bringing new energy from our darkness into full consciousness, this moon especially offers any manifested transformation out of those dark winter struggles.

Great Plants to consume for the month of April: Nettles (for allergies), Borage (to lift spirits), Calendula (to bring cheer), and Rosemary (to boost energy)

What is the artwork here? I love it! It reminds me of something I saw at San Marco in Florence, but different subject. I would like to get a copy, as I am an artist/herbalist, and want to get a closer look!


Hi Jude, you can see a larger version of the artwork on Wikipedia:
