April is the fifth month of the year according to the modern Gregorian calendar. The name April comes from the Roman name Aprilispossibly derived from the Latin verb aperire, to open.

Other theories suggest that the name was derived from the name Aphrodite, via the Etruscan equivalent Apru.

The month of April was sacred to Venus and kicked off with her festival the Veneralia.

KEY TAKEAWAYS


In witchcraft, April represents a time of fertility, growth, and abundance. As spring fully takes hold in the Northern Hemisphere, witches celebrate the return of life to the earth and the blossoming of plants and flowers.

Rituals and spells during April often focus on themes of renewal, prosperity, and manifestation, harnessing the energy of the season to bring about positive changes and new opportunities.

Witches may honor deities associated with fertility and agriculture, such as Aphrodite, Flora, and Pan, and work with symbols of rebirth, such as eggs and rabbits.

April is also a time for cleansing and purifying rituals to rid oneself of stagnant energy from the winter months and prepare for the growth and expansion ahead.

Magickal Practices in April

April is a vibrant and energetic month in witchcraft, marked by festivals celebrating fertility and new life, auspicious moon phases for manifestation and release, and magickal practices centered around cleansing, growth, and connection with nature.

We often embrace the spirit of renewal and abundance that permeates the season, harnessing its energy for personal and spiritual transformation.
