April brings a greater vision into our lives and alters our perspective, focusing on a more dualistic and compromising approach to our higher goals – bringing both practicality and imagination together. Matters of the heart are investigated closely as Venus-native signs take the spotlight this month, putting our value-system, personal and business relationships under review. This month we find what works, and what doesn’t, and with that we are able to shed away the distractions so to formulate a game plan that is ensured to yield the results we desire.
April starts with a fresh new perspective relating to our value system and catering to our personal relationships as Venus moves into Gemini on the 3rd. We are inspired to bring fun, adventure and a more curious wonder into our relationships – romantic and social. The urge to get out there and make new friend is also likely, and the new connections we make are bound to be quite different in regards to variety – meaning that we have someone to turn to with our different moods, matching the energy we bring.
On April 7th we are inspired to restore balance in our World with a harmonic Full Moon in Libra. However, it is paired with an Aries Sun, and the Full Moon caters to completions and bringing things to an end, and so with this fiery edge, there may first be chaos before there is order. This helps put into perspective of where the imbalances are, so to fix the scales. The Full Moon in Libra illuminates our personal and business relationships, bringing to light what doesn’t work, and what does.
Just a few days later on April 11th, Mercury moves into Fiery Aries. For the next few weeks, things start to speed up and our communication style becomes less emotional, catering towards the blunt truth and also taking a more spontaneous direction. This is also a time where short cuts might be taken into consideration, as that long-path ahead in order to get the results we desire seems too far away and when Aries takes over Mercury, it wants quick-results.
On April 19th the Sun moves into stable and determined Taurus. This is a time where we start planting those seeds and tending to the garden of our dreams – or literally as we are inspired with that green thumb and get our hands dirty working on our landscapes. Taurus is one of the most powerful and creative signs of the zodiac, but it truly depends on where this power is placed. When it is for good, we can expect to see the fruits of our labor blossom and grow, showering our lives with abundance. When it is directed towards negativity, then we can grow stingy, possessive and extremely stubborn. For the next four weeks, our focus should be on the higher goals we have been considering since the new year.
A few days later on April 22nd, we have a very gracious New Moon in Taurus, which amplifies the power of the Sun. This is the perfect time of the year to start setting new intentions, especially in themes regarding our personal and business relationships, and all matters associated with the heart. That 5-year plan is put into review and a dream board is envisioned, adding to the energy and determination to see our goals to completion. The New Moon in Taurus blesses us with gentle but motivational energy, inspiring us to consider practical yet far-reaching goals, manifesting our deepest desires and aiding to the willpower in achieving it all.
Pluto goes Retrograde on April 25th. Now, before you think this is no big deal because Pluto is the smallest planet, and to some, isn’t even classified as a planet, does not mean you are immune to its influence. Even in retrograde, the changes and deep realizations that Pluto inspires upon us can be life changing. For the next 5-months, while Pluto’s influence is immensely powerful, we can take a bit of a breather, as we review the recent changes we’ve put into our lives and take into consideration what has been working, and what may have been the wrong turn.
Mercury moves into Taurus on April 27th, which allows for us to stick with a plan or project we have conjured up while it was in Aries. Mercury in Taurus offers a slow-down and an integration process which allows us to put everything into a better perspective, catering to a more practical and realistic vision that is ensured to yield the results we want for the next three weeks.

Happy Solar Return, Aries!
April is going to be rather kind to you, because you have earned it. You’ve worked hard at facing some shadowy aspects within this past year and this has caused many doors to finally open for you. However, it does seem that this month does require you to make some pretty major choices regarding the changes you’ve set into place during the last few months. You’ve finally set a sturdy foundation to start chasing your higher goals, you just need to put some final touches in motion in order to get that head start you need.
Your intuition is heightened this month, and you have an itch about something big taking place. You can feel it in your bones, and you also feel that you need to strike while the iron is hot. There may even be numerous synchronicities you will notice as well, such as repeating number sequences and animal messengers with profound meanings which match the frequency you are trying to shift towards. It is important that you pay attention to these signs, as they are paving your path and indications that you are playing out an important role in your life right now, which not only affects your future, but those whom are all connected to you as well.
When you feel you need to take a leap of faith, take it, Aries. Of course, it’s not too difficult for you to rush head-first into a new project, especially when you feel your heart is touched and your intuitive senses are tingling. Just keep in mind that when you do, nothing is ever going to be the same again.

Happy Solar Return, Taurus!
Taurus, it is time for starting to put into motion that 5-year plan of yours, or whatever higher goal you have been licking your chops just thinking about. There may be some things you have to reconsider in your life before finally embarking onto the path you’ve been wishing you could step foot onto, and there is no better time than now. This is a month of massive shifts and game-changers for many of the zodiac, and you are no different – other than you can be reluctant to invoke change when you are forced into it. If you resist, you will miss the window of opportunity that only comes around so often, and so why continue to delay the process? Do this for you, Taurus.
There does seem to be a strong sense of authority and masculinity within your life this month as well – perhaps your actual father, or some kind of fatherly push from the cosmos or your environmental influences which beckons you to get your sh*t together. Self-discipline and focused attention are the keys in which you need to use in order to unlock a door that holds your goals and dreams.
You get a major spotlight this month, as the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and a powerful New Moon are within your sign in the later part of the month. So keep in mind, Taurus, where attention goes, energy flows.

XI the Hanged Man
In the past you have faced so many karmic experiences, in which you had no choice but to confront shadowy aspects of yourself and to experience the pains of rebirthing yourself, more authentic, and more aligned with your higher goals. You feel a boost of energy this month, Gemini, which inspires you to think deeper, to reconsider your path and to pave a new adventure to follow.
Venus moves into your sign in the beginning of the month, and there it will remain for the next few months, putting your personal relationships and value system into focus. You have understood what does not work for you in the past, and so it is time to put those understandings into motion, so to reach for desires that truly do work.
The Hanged Man offers a gift of a reconstructed vision that offers far more rewards, both material and internal, but it does require a sacrifice. You did not see something clearly in the past, or perhaps you had missed an important detail, that like a puzzle piece, will bring that bigger picture together and allow you to finally set your efforts into motion.

X the Wheel
There is quite a big shift occurring in your life this month and it may affect many different aspects as the other cards show. This is incredibly positive, as you have been doing much of the work needed to set the new foundation for this shift within the recent months. When it comes to making changes, or adapting to new changes, you like to do it in small waves, Cancer, as like your ruling celestial body, the Moon, you command the tides with your focus, and little by little, the waves can eventually shape the hardest of stones and even mold the ground they flow towards.
This month is all about following your heart and committing to where it leads you. You might be considering something major within your love life this month, and when the air seems just ripe for you to take that big step – take it, because this window of opportunity is just perfect with its timing. Everything will flow, as long as you put your attention towards what the heart wants.
These past few months have been quite difficult for you in terms of adapting to the changes to come, which are here now, but now you can see the bigger picture and piece together the reasons and methods behind all of the madness; now that everything makes sense, you are ready to take a leap of faith that can end up changing everything for your highest good.

XIII Death & Rebirth
There are a lot of changes invoking into your life this month, Leo, and they are welcomed. However, there is something that you might have to leave behind, which could be a perspective, and when you see things differently, the things you see begin to change which caters to a shift in not just focus, but also your environment and relationships as well.
If you have closed doors in the recent months, then expect a new one to open this month, which allows for new experiences based on the lessons learned and integrated. You are leveling up this month, and also bringing in new energy, which might at first feel a bit foreign, because as a fixed sign, you are focused and determined to stay on path – however, as a fire sign you do not easily shun away new adventures.
You feel reborn this month. The birthing pains from the past are done, and so now you can see the World through new eyes and feast upon new experiences as well as the joy of accomplishment in providing solutions to old problems that had kept you in a repetitive cycle of both struggle and feeling defeated.

You are finally getting a major break through that you have been yearning for, Virgo. You have been batting your head against a wall for some time now trying to resolve a problem, with no end in sight, and it has been so very frustrating because you don’t like it when you get stuck on an issue that seems to never have a solution. You may even say that you’ve been feeling a bit depressed, or even defeated in the recent months.
While you are getting this gift of a energetic shift within a few aspects of your life, there does seem to be an issue within another, such as your career, which isn’t going to be getting the results you favor, and so with that, you can expect balance this month in dealing with the good and the bad. It seems that once you get one problem resolved, another may present itself, or perhaps you are able to make more time and place your energy onto another problem without having to deal with two at the same time.
You may also be experiencing a completion to a contract – perhaps even a karmic one, this month, and it may be good or bad – expected, or brought to you by surprise. This might not be something that you have anticipated, but with a more open mind, you will see that it is for your highest good.

April is all about setting a major milestone in your life that you are going to look back at in the future, and realize that everything had changed from the simple actions, reactions, and completions you have set into place this month. You have reached an ultimate goal or broken a cycle that had held you captive because of repetitive behaviors or thinking habits – whatever the case, things are shifting and from here on out, nothing is going to be the same again.
A lot of what takes place this month may be rather karmic as well and may also directly impact your personal relationships. Your sign is put on display with the Full Moon on the 7th, and this may get everything in motion for you to balance your karmic bank.
With this shift is going to come some changes which may also affect your finances, but it won’t be a bad thing, that is unless you allow it to be – as you read further into your Tarotscope, you will see what I mean, as the 4 of Pentacles can be both a gift and also signal a lot of work in terms of personal boundaries and self-limitations.

There may be a lot going on in your family life, Scorpio, perhaps a shared goal or common interest. Whatever you’ve got cooking up, you may find it more beneficial to reach out to your family as well, in terms of needing support, or even aid in accumulating the resources you may need. Tradition and family relationships speak rather loudly this month for you.
However, there does also seem to be some family drama that could be present this month as well, and it might have to deal with being left without the support you need – which doesn’t mean that the support will not arrive, just perhaps not who you’d expect.
Karmically speaking, this may also be yet another month in which you are balancing the karmic scales for your ancestors, and again, this is rather dualistic when it comes to both good and bad, in being that you are having to do some difficult shadow work in an attempt to break karmic cycles passed down to your lineage, but also recover gifts which are also passed down.

April is quite a fiery month and offers a lot of adventure into the unknown, which is just what you like, Sagittarius. You are entering a major turning point in your life, where a major decision must be made, and whatever you choose, is going to greatly affect your career, family, and loved ones. This is big and isn’t to be taken lightly. While you are all up for taking chances, you have to be aware of the risks that are involved. Now the rest of the cards do show that there is a lot of activity within your social life, and also within your career relationships, it is important to understand that some influences in your life might not be the best for you, for they are catering to your downfall. Basically, you could have certain friendships that while are great fun, sometimes that fun isn’t harmless and leaves great consequences behind, and if you take the fall, then those who depend on you or who rely on you, will also experience that fall as well.
There is also a great opportunity that may make an appearance this month, and so it is important to ensure that you aren’t busying yourself too much within your social activities to not take notice of it, because this could be the one risk or chance you take, that pays off.
Whatever the gravity of the situation, it is important to keep in mind that whatever decision you make, alters everything for the long-term and there is no going back to the way it was before.

10 of Swords
Well, Capricorn, you better buckle up, because April is going to take you on a ride. You are encountering a shift this month, just like many of the Zodiac, and also like your astrological siblings, this is going to be something that is heart-centered, or themed.
The changes you will invoke this month are also incredibly positive, however, they do come with a price, and it may not be that easy to pay. This causes for you to let go of something, and it may be from within yourself, and possibly certain social or even romantic relationships you have been holding onto. This is a distorted perspective that has been based on fear and also attachment towards things which aren’t very good for you, but seem to provide some comfort when you have yourself convinced that it soothes whatever ailment you are focusing on. However, you have been drinking poison, and it has been your own eyes which have misread the label.
I feel this may be something that has to do with a social aspect of your life, and it may be an influence in which you haven’t seen for what it is, but perhaps what you want to see it for. You’ve been blind to the red flags, or perhaps you have noticed them, but you didn’t want to make a fuss because you were convinced you were on the right path. However, now that you can see a little clearer, you can acknowledge that things must change in order to open up a much brighter future for yourself and those who rely or depend on you.
GENERAL / SELF
Balance is key this month, Aquarius, and you have been working hard over this past year to obtain that. April is going to be rather action packed for you, but in very good ways that lay the groundwork for a greater vision you have sets your eyes upon.
You will also be encountering resolution to an old conflict – within your relationships or a personal one which is going to help bring about the balance you have been seeking. You have tried so very hard to walk that higher path and to also tread a mile or so in someone else’s shoes so to understand the method behind the madness, and with this new clarity you are able to see the why’s, how’s, and with that find solutions that are not only perfect, but also will last the long-term.
You feel more energetic this month as well. Before you might have felt that so many things were happening TO you, but as everything begins to fall in place, you can now see it was merely teaching you, and also laying that groundwork. This give you hope for the future and a restored sense of vitality that caters to being motivated to accomplish those higher goals you have been itching to achieve.

XIX the Sun
April is going to be quite a joyous month for you as it’s full of excitement, setting forth on new ideas, and receiving results from your efforts much quicker than you had anticipated. There is also less responsibility placed upon your shoulders this month, well, you still have some adulting to you, but it is not nearly as facing a harsh reality as it has been these past few months. You may have felt you were put into the ringer when Mercury was retrograding within your sign, and then that Pisces New Moon which amplified its energies. You were forced to express needs that you had felt uncomfortable with doing in the past, and you may have over-analyzed your place within your career or social standings with others. April offers a much-needed time out, where you can let that creative inner-child to come out and play and dabble with new projects or ideas.
You might be taking a trip this month or planning to take one in the future – such as buying your airline ticket so to save a few bucks from planning ahead. Whatever it may be, it is something that is definitely for fun and your personal enjoyment. You may also be planning this with good friends or family members, and so those who are included are bound to keep the energy upbeat, ensuring that this time spent away from all of that adulting triggers your creative flow and raises your frequency.
You may also be learning something new this month that has to deal with science or spirituality – or even possibly a combination of both. This is a fun learning experience though, because you are incredibly interested in the subject of study.
