April 2023 Tarotscopes

April greetings to all, and happy solar return wishes to Aries and early Taurus folks! Below are your intuitive tarot readings by me, coupled with insightful astro snapshots by Sera. Both tarot and astro horoscopes are per sign for the month ahead. There is also a card for the Collective, which you can use in conjunction with your personal tarot card to create a more robust narrative around what is calling your attention during this monthly cycle, or as a clarifier to your zodiac’s card.

Tarot Highlights:

Again, there were several swords in the readings… So ongoing attention to communication, thoughts, and beliefs are encouraged. There were also a handful of Knights, which may symbolize defensiveness, younger masculine folks coming in, taking action, movement, and often personal quests.

To get the most out of these Horoscopes, please read them based off of your Ascendant/ Rising sign, as these are the signs that are the basis of our monthly breakdowns. Your Ascendant sign is the sign of the Zodiac which was rising on the eastern horizon at the time, date & location of our birth, and it provides us with a much more individualized view of our personal astrology. If you do not yet know your Rising Sign, feel free to find it here: Chart Drawing, Ascendant. All you will need is the closest possible time, date & location of your birth. For those not able to find an accurate Rising Sign, you can secondarily read these horoscopes by your Sun sign and thirdly by your Moon sign.

Stay tuned for the Celestial Insights blog to see what the stars have to say, along with lunar magick offerings…

Here are your tarot + astro messages. I suggest reading your rising and sun signs: 

 

READINGS FOR THE COLLECTIVE

TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH
Deck Used: Thoth Deck
Card: The Sun

The overall energetic message for this month that you can use to expand and clarify your personal card reading is: The Sun (The Path of Resh)

In the Thoth deck, The Sun depicts all zodiac symbols lit up by the rays of the sun—all of our parts and houses and the cycles we move through as our souls evolve and we work through karma.

In this context, The Sun is about “collecting intelligence” and the ego side of our personality/the Solar Self. These are the parts of our personality we are conscious of and link to our soul/inner Self. The twin children represent the innocence and curiosity we are invited to connect with in order to grow more wholly into freedom. It is also an invitation to use creativity and exploration for self-discovery. Being vulnerable is key. Their butterfly wings represent the transformation that occurs when the Shadow is integrated, and they may now move upward.

The sun literally shines light on the shadows so we may confidently confront what needs to be integrated to become whole; the dance between what is conscious and what is unconscious. These include our fears, doubts, and shame that may have been sparked in childhood and have been carried forward and “leak out” in our relationships with others and the Self. Therefore, by engaging play (as a child naturally does—it is their language), we can reconnect fractured parts from unhealthy attachment when we were young or damaging experiences, and activate self-awareness—our Solar Self, consciousness. In this space, we can assess how we participate (or not) in our happiness. By confronting the difficult “parts” with the rays of the sun, we can overcome those obstacles, or start to, simply by being aware of them. So, this card portends movement and alchemization into awakening our most radiant, pure Selves…  None of us are broken, ALL of us are already whole, we just have some craggy rocks and calcified behaviors and thought patterns that must be acknowledged then unlearned to access our inner Truth and Light. This card ushers in self-confidence and self-efficacy throughout the month via solar expansion and fertility joining, as well as a boost to “do the work” in all manifestations of relationships to promote inner growth. 

Keywords: vitality, confidence, inner child healing, awareness, moving toward light, realizations, abundance of life/life experiences, healing, personal growth, self-love, solar masculine/feminine.

 

ASTRO SNAP SHOT

We started the beginning of the Astrological New Year on 03.20 as the Sun entered Aries, and will continue the theme of new beginnings and bursting seeds pushing through dense thawing Earth in April. The etymology of the word April actually traces back to the word, aperire, “to open”, as the flowers begin to do at this time of the year.

We now have two of the most dense and rigid planetary energies Saturn and Pluto respectively floating in Piscean Water, and Aquarian Space which most certainly opens a cosmic window from which new collective possibilities arise regarding our societal structures of government, power, and laws, as well as re envisioning the role of technology in our society, and what freedom means at this stage of the human evolution game.

Mercury in Taurus on 04.03 helps us slowly and methodically articulate our thoughts while finding our footing with the Cosmic Dad’s Saturn and Pluto in Wonderland, while the Full Moon in Libra on 04.06 determines whom in our life is helping us balance, and who keeps pulling us down into the mud. Partnerships are highlighted, and if your partner is not holding your hand through the tumult it may be time to let them go to find your own surefootedness. Venus enters Gemini on 04.11 and we become charmed by language, poetry and the so-called beautiful mind. We also want to try all of the flavors of ice cream, savoring the delights for just moments before moving onto the next. A good time to remember that the grass is not actually always greener on the other side! This month’s biggie is the Hybrid Solar Eclipse in Aries on 04.20 which takes place on the lunar nodes of Aries and Libra. This is partnership and reason, vs independence and passion. The Sun in Aries will bring about a fated turning point which serves to push you further into your personal mission and purpose. If your mind has been preventing you from embracing your true passion, get ready for a reboot! Yes, we can lose things during an eclipse, but poetically, this eclipse will reveal the moon in a fiery solar halo which is a picture of our emotional needs being crowned by our will. This is an alignment and Holy Marriage of our goals, career, and relationships to work in harmony with our deepest most fulfilling dreams.

On 04.21 we have our dear trickster friend Mercury going Retrograde in Taurus which will give us plenty of time to contemplate what seeds of possibility we want to nurture in this Spring Season of opening. While your at it, get your hand and/or feet into the fertile soil of an actual garden,,,this may be the best possible thing to focus on while Mercury is in retrograde, as his tricks do not penetrate very deeply into the actual Earth which is far more stable than the Mercury ruled domain of Monkey Mind.

    READINGS FOR THE SIGNS

    ARIES

    Tarot Card: King of Swords

    Two kings in a row, Aries… There is a theme around mastery, following through, and personal power happening for you in early 2023. This month, you are guided to focus on communication themes. The King of Swords can come forward when there is someone, likely an air sign, who you are in relationship with that needs some attention. You are asked to focus on speaking up with logic and truth, but also compassion, as anyone in a position of power (a king) is responsible for many others’ experiences. There is implicit authority with this card, and goals are achieved through using intellect over emotion, logical deduction, chill yet courageous and direct communication. The purpose with this king is also to achieve some form of clarity and truth. Take the helm in a recent or upcoming situation by bringing objectivity and expressing the truth in any matter. If you are holding something in, write it out, speak it, process it. Furthermore, if you are having a hard time making a decision, use the aforementioned keywords to make it, and try to be decisive this month. Kings can be other people, so this may also be a confirmation for some around choosing a lawyer, writer, or advisor of some sort.

    Astro Snapshot:  

    Happy Birthday Aries!! Expect action and change this month with a Solar Eclipse in your sign, as well as the Sun illuminating the horns of the fiery Ram until 04.20. Your appearance will be a key theme this month, so you may be updating your wardrobe, getting a new haircut, or starting a new Yoga challenge. The Full Moon in Libra on 04.06 will shed light on your close partnerships, both romantic and business. Whatever insights you receive will inform you of your partner's worth, and alignment with you now…whether the bond will grow tighter, or be released. Venus in Gemini on 04.11 lends you communication superpowers so you can work out the details, and the Aries Eclipse and Sun in Taurus on 04.20 ups your self esteem, your abundance, resources and pleasure principle. You love your independence, so you may become more practical about partnership, and most certainly more discerning about the reflection of you your partner is beaming back to you. If they don’t provide soft lighting which enhances your beauty, it might be time to let m’ go. You’ve got mountains to climb, Aries!

     

    TAURUS 

    Tarot Card: 8 of Swords

    Taurus folks are likely moving through some change and transformation, with recent metaphorical deaths that are ushering in rebirths. Before those can fully manifest, though, there are some personal beliefs, thoughts, or self-talk that is keeping you in a low vibration and are ready to be acknowledged and released… Try to bring awareness to these distortions and see what is underneath them (what do they remind you of, what is real core emotion, etc.). You may be feeling like a victim in some scenario with false truths oppressing you. You have the power to remove the blindfold, accept what is there, and then change your narrative. Some of you may be feeling trapped in a situation, as this card depicts a person stuck in their own cage made of cognitive distortions, old core beliefs that no longer serve, or narratives about who they are. How does that resonate with you? Challenge these thoughts with both compassion and facts working in unison. Also, the 4 of Wands and Hermit came up a lot in the shuffle, so situations connected to your home and family need some attention, and the answers you’re seeking will come from getting real with yourself, changing your narrative, claiming your power, and receiving guidance through meditation or working with personal Guides. Virgos also got this card, so communication with a Virgo may be relevant/encouraged.

    Astro Snapshot:

    Until the 20th you may find yourself in a more reflective state than usual, Taurus. You may crave silence, want to retreat, and could feel like hibernating a bit. With Mercury entering your sign on 04/03 it’s likely that you will want to share the insights you receive with a close friend, or start journaling, or turning your hidden dreams into poetry or a podcast. The Full Moon on 04.06 supercharges the dark waters of your subconscious illuminating any blocks that might be preventing you from moving up to your next level of growth. You also may find you’re interested in probing deeper into your sexual-emotional patterns, and fine tuning those to bring you greater satisfaction. Venus moving into Gemini on 04.11 will bring you a bit of comfort as connections show up that bring you abundant opportunity. But on 04.20 the solar eclipse will be pretty intense for you as far as stirring up anything that’s in the shadows, or even dreams that you may have overlooked or set aside for practicalities sake. Be prepared to be pushed back to your soul path if you’ve been ignoring your deepest needs. Mercury goes retrograde on 04.21 in your sign which will give you plenty of time to consider how you will manifest your revealed dreams and needs as Spring kicks into action.

     

    GEMINI 

    Tarot Card: 3 of Swords

    There was an Ace of Swords planting a seed in communication, and maybe even bringing clarity last month, Gemini. You have likely been having to make difficult, or at least frequent, decisions and choices. That in mind, there may be or might be some miscommunication that causes conflict based on new info and/or someone’s communication this month, Gem. The 3 of Swords is not about heartbreak from an emotional level, but rather disappointment or hurt stemming from a lack of or miscommunication, triangulation with a 3rd party muddying the waters between you and someone else, or simply your own mind hijacking your heart. Bring awareness to how you talk about yourself to yourself and others. Likewise, lean into acceptance around a rejection of some sort, gather info, process, and release it. You may feel compelled to ruminate (holler, fellow Geminis! It’s our specialty) but know that this situation and its accompanying feelings are all temporary. Allow yourself to cry and feel and not over-intellectualize the situation, while also bringing logic and facts to the front of your mind to help you move forward. Acceptance is really big with this one… You are in the midst of major change via this conflict. Be present with any pain this month so it can move through. These gray clouds are already clearing, and you will be entering a space of reflection soon that will help heal any wounds. If there is no conflict, this card can simply show up to call attention to triangulation to get clear on boundaries. Also, while shuffling, literally every card landed on was a sword (10, ace, 5, and more). Your thoughts, communication with others, and ending cycles of painful mental space and anxiety are shifting through your awareness. 

    Astro Snapshot: 

    You are no stranger to social gatherings, which is exactly what the first 3 weeks of April will present to you. Be ready for team projects, community spirit, and feeling extra charitable. Your ruler, Mercury moves into Taurus on 04.03 which will turn your charming dialogue into an internal one, as your unconscious realm is activated and your dreams may become more relevant than your waking life for a bit. The Full Libra Moon on 04.06 has you feeling romantic and playful with a partner or in daydreams.. A good time for creative collaboration, and perhaps lighting the fire of that platonic friendship with the hidden embers just beneath the surface. Venus entering your sign on 04.11 turns the cosmic love potion up another notch, and you can expect some spicy texts or synchronistic love sparks. The Aries Solar Eclipse and Sun moving into Taurus on 04.20 may clear out any barren friendships, old lovers, or groups you've outgrown. But worry not…what this makes way for is the reemergence of hidden dreams and desires, as well as deep inner self care, and sets the stage for more aligned friendships and goals. When Mercury goes Rx on 04.21-05.14 you’re just going to want to hit pause..trust. Breathwork and meditation will get you through.

     

    CANCER 

    Tarot Card: Wheel of Fortune

    You are in major cycle shifts, huge years-long patterns are closing, and lots of inner growth is happening, Cancers. The Wheel shows up to remind us that nothing is permanent, for better or worse, and that is part of our personal growth. This card indicates a change in luck if things have been difficult, it encourages hopefulness and optimism, and wants you to know that you will be successfully guided in tending to any situation taking up real estate in your psyche. The themes of fate and destiny are associated with this card, so new relationships, experiences, opportunities that come in this month are part of your plan. Welcome, accept, and allow cycles to turn, change to occur, and expect the unexpected in an exciting and optimistic way!

    Astro Snapshot: 

    Dear Cancer…it’s not always success that motivates you, but this month begins with career accolades! You often toil discreetly, making sure that everyone in your friend and family has what they need. This month you’re in the spotlight a bit for your accomplishments, and though this may not be the most comfortable place for you, it is what you need, and what helps to fill the coffers with the abundance you generously share. This can come through a raise, a new job, a new aligned project that highlights your skills, or a bonus for a job well done. When your ruler the moon is full on 04.06 in Libra you will surely be nesting in your cozy home with your nearest and dearest partner. This moon is very aligned for you, and is a perfect time to add some more love to your home with some new house plants, or spring bouquets. The Aries Solar Eclipse and Sun moving into Taurus on 04.20 may bring surprising news at work, and will greatly improve or taint your reputation depending on how well you have behaved! Plenty of friends will be there to support you as you level up, or perhaps regather yourself for the next chapter. Mercury retrograde 04.21-05.14 says to drop the goals, and try a new class or hobby with friends…just for the joy of it.

      

    LEO 

    Tarot Card: Knight of Wands

    You have had new projects, experiences, or people happening recently, or will soon, and although you are a fun and exciting fire sign, your Guides are heeding you to not get too carried away. Work to remain logical and grounded to sustain health, wealth, and prosperity. The Knight of Wands’ passion can get so intense (sometimes manifesting as anger) that he is carried away and loses control over his emotions or a situation. Be sure you are moving your body and talking out and processing anything important, because you may be feeling (or will soon feel) a build-up of energy. I even want to say check in about inflammation in your body. Movement, action, travel, exercise, and expression are all encouraged with this card. Two more pointed messages: For many, you have a lot of creative inspiration, and need to start materializing what is going on internally. Just start. Literally just do one thing to externalize your inner creative flow and spark the project. For others, there is a masculine fire sign (Leo, Sag, Aries) coming in. This person will bring fun and adventure to your life… If you are looking for a collaborator, a partner, even a new boss, if they fit this bill, this is confirmation to spark a relationship with this person in whatever context is meaningful for you.

    Astro Snapshot: 

    This month you’ll be eating knowledge for dinner….there’s something you've been wanting to learn, a culture you’ve been wanting to explore, or a spiritual path you’ve been considering. This is the month to take those things in, as they will transform into your inner gnosis over time, and strengthen your mighty lion light. If you’re itching to take a trip, make sure to get it in before the 20th when the Solar Eclipse in Aries will be jolting you into alignment, bringing your inner dreams, and outer career into harmony. Sometimes this can feel like tectonic plates shifting, but just remember this is a level up! Take in the Springtime sun with plenty of cat naps, and hydration when Mercury goes retrograde on 04.21.

     

    VIRGO 

    Tarot Card: 8 of Swords

    Taurus also got this card, so communication with a Taurus may be important. Also, the 5 of Pentacles was present during shuffling a couple of times so I would interpret this message through the lens of your physical health, Virgos. There are some personal beliefs, thoughts, or self-talk that is hiding you in a low vibration that needs some of your time… Try to bring awareness to these distortions and see what is underneath. You may be feeling like a victim in some scenario with false truths oppressing you. You have the power to remove the blindfold, accept what is, and then change your narrative. Some of you may be feeling trapped in a situation, and this card depicts a person stuck in their own cage made of cognitive distortions, old core beliefs that no longer serve, or narratives about who you are. Challenge these thoughts with compassion and facts working in unison. Write out new narratives about your relationship to your body, health, and for some, financial health/wealth. You are not helpless, you are not poor, Virgo. You are a magnet for abundance and in control of your thoughts. Claim it!

    Astro Snapshot:

    Expect some shifts in your finances this month, for better or for worse. Think of it as a financial purification rite in alignment with the bounty of Spring. If an asset or financial stream is attached to any negative energy in your life including your Father’s Karma, be prepared to let go of at least some of your hold on that one to make room for a bit more liquidity, and exploration. We know you like to stay on the safe side and know when and where the next check is coming from, but this month you’re going to be expanding your horizons, and may need to let go of some security in order to do so. You perhaps get the travel bug, or simply want to sign up for a costly educational course…whatever it is that you can’t resist diving headfirst into, just do it. You need to get out of your comfort zone in order to grow and prosper to your fullest extent. Let's pull up the anchor, and get ready for a bit of an adventure…you will be provided for, and have what you need just in time.

     

    LIBRA 

    Tarot Card: 7 of Cups

    Another 7, so more reflection, Libras! This time, you are called to reflect on and ponder relationships and emotions… Not everything or everyone is as it seems, and if you are idealizing someone, or even getting lost in wishful thinking projections, you’re missing the beauty and truth of what is. For some, you may have many options in April around relationships, whether new ones are offered or how much energy you actually want to put into existing ones. There is a full moon in your sign, so focus on balance and calibration of all relationships by getting underneath emotions you notice when thinking about certain people. This card also generally highlights being confused about something or someone and clarity is needed by being honest with yourself and others. Dip into fantasy for creative and imaginal purposes, but when it comes to relationships, notice if you are projecting a fantasy onto someone, and where illusion seeps in and distorts reality.

    Astro Snapshot:

    You are the best partner, Libra! April celebrates your ability to harmonize, and create peace with your favorite person…or perhaps your not so favorite person. You carry an air of grace, and cannot help but smooth out the rough waters when you find yourself in a storm. The Full Moon in your sign on 4/6 illuminates your physicality, your body image, and how you are feeling in your body. Ruled by love Goddess Venus, it’s important for you to feel attractive and confident in your own skin, and any habits or self talk that may be preventing this will be brought to light. Your ruler enters Gemini on 04.11 which will turn your interest toward foreign delights, exotic foods, and perhaps even inspire travel to another country. The 04.21 Solar Eclipse lights up your bank account, resources, and hidden desires. While you may reap the benefits of inheritance, or financial bonus, you may also have a hidden expense…but all will even out as your talent for cultivating healthy partnerships in business and pleasure brings in the support you have been wanting.

      

    SCORPIO 

    Tarot Card: 4 of Pentacles

    Last month was about moderation and patience, and this month, Scorpios are guided to bring attention to where there is stagnant or anxious clutching to finances, work, and health. If you are feeling stagnant, you are likely holding onto something (a job, something related to money/an investment, or a health habit) that is no longer serving you and taking up space that is meant for something better for YOU. The theme of security is very relevant here, but if you are experiencing more fear than security, something is out of alignment. On the other hand, for those who have been collaborating and working towards goals, this is a message about earned security. There is no stagnancy because this is newer energy The message for you would be to know that financial and personal health abundance is coming in, but do not get too attached to the material or aesthetic, otherwise you too may feel stuck like the person in this card who cannot move their hands, feet, or head for fear of loss—financial loss, status, etc. Sometimes taking reasonable risks brings the rewards, too!

    Astro Snapshot:

    You will be feeling unusually generous with your time and energy this month, Scorpio. You have deep and intense goals to focus on most of the time, but April has you taking extended breaks at the water cooler to chat with co-workers, and even perhaps offering to bring coffee and donuts every Friday. You’ll have a long checklist of valued tasks and outings which keep you as busy as a bee cultivating honey. You may even feel like not being the leader for once. When the Solar Eclipse hits on 04.20 and the Sun moves into Taurus it’s time to get romantic, sensual, and intimate with the apple of your eye. If this is not an option with your current flame, prepare for ashes, and make room for a new spark. If you already have a vibrant love connection, prepare for the bond to deepen, and the partnership to bloom anew with the flowers of spring.

     

    SAGITTARIUS 

    Tarot Card: Ace of Pentacles

    Sag friends can expect a new opportunity around work, finances, material goods, and/or health coming in this month. A seed of potential has been planted in the earthly material realm, and if you are seeking change around those aforementioned themes, participate! Put the word out if you are looking for a job, clean up your res and post it, tell people what investments or financial goals you have, advocate for your health, and make some appointments because there is a portal of success and opportunity open in April for you. In any case, many of you are starting a new beginning in some physical form: a new home, new job, new health regimen, etc. Congrats! This card portends security, groundedness, planting roots, stability, and prosperity. Claim it, Sag!

    Astro Snapshot:

    It should be a warm, creative, fun loving month for you dear passionate archer! Set your sites on the most fabulous events and gatherings where you will shine as a burning star of inspiration and play. Trust in your heart to open the way to nourishing adventure, as well as playful friends and perhaps a passionate lover. When Venus moves into Gemini on 04.11 your current romantic partnership will enter a deeper level of commitment, or may be let off your sumptuously baited fish hook for something more aligned with whom you are evolving into. The Solar Eclipse on 04.20 turns your fire to warm and serve whom or whatever is dearest to your heart. This could be a Lover, a charitable organization, a pet, or even your job. Your ego needs will be taking a backseat as you find great fulfillment from taking a support role which strengthens a bond, and reveals a tender hidden side of you few get to see.

     

    CAPRICORN 

    Tarot Card: Knight of Swords

    Last month you were guided to bring attention to what thoughts and beliefs were holding you in a personal cage of your own making so that you could break free and create new narratives. This month, you are in the zone of communication and expression still, but with gusto. The Knight of Swords brings attention to speaking up and expressing your needs and ideas to others. You have access to quick wit, effective words, and the drive and ambition to take action around your thoughts and ideas. The shadow side of this card can be abrasive communication, jumping to conclusions, creating confusion, and inflicting hurtful words… This is the only knight with a deadly weapon, so understand the punch your words can pack! Overall though, this feels like you are getting clear-headed on the story you prefer to claim about yourself, you are empowered this month, and you are blessed with focus and confidence to get what you need in April by expressing yourself. Just try to remain patient with others, Caps!

    Astro Snapshot:

    April is a time for you to really settle into your home, Capricorn. Make your nest beautiful and comfortable. Rearrange the furniture perhaps, harmonize the energy with strategically placed crystals, and a good Spring Sage cleansing of the entire house. Open the windows and let the light in. This may also apply to your inner sense of home and your family roots. How is your relationship with your Mother and does she offer the nourishment and unconditional love and support that you crave? Did you have a supportive home life, and how is your inner child doing? You may need to revisit the past to heal some old wounds and even possibly learn self parenting, self love, and setting boundaries with parental figures who may not have the best effect on your well being. Think about chosen family…this is your right. Also think about your dream home, the land, the people, the style, the culture, the weather…plant new dream seeds of what “home” is for you, and how you can adapt the current situation, or if perhaps it’s time to establish a new dwelling. The 04.20 Solar Eclipse ushers in a romantic flame, or creative opportunity…you won’t miss it, but it may not last long, so enjoy the fireworks. This serves to show you what’s possible when your heart is jolted open to joy.

      

    AQUARIUS 

    Tarot Card: Knight of Pentacles

    You have likely been focusing on work or very busy at work since last month, and this month, your message is to slow down and pause now that you have some momentum going. This is so you do not burn out and honor self-care, but also, by moving slow and steady, you are creating a stronger and more sustainable foundation for your goals to be successful. Your focuses this month are taking note of your current and upcoming responsibilities, engaging determination and diligence in all of your work, and being patient when it comes to results. In work scenarios, whether you are within a role of authority or working under authority, loyalty may be another theme that commands attention this month. For all Aquarius folks, be sure you balance yourself with these pauses, preferably by getting into nature, as this is the earth signs’ card. Slow down but keep working persistently and finish one thing at a time. You are making progress! 

    Astro Snapshot:

    You are going to have plenty to say, and plenty of people around to converse with this month dear innovative Aquarian. Communication is the name of the game, and the 04.06 Full Moon in Libra instigates far reaching philosophical discussions, multi cultural comparisons, and curious exchange of ideas regarding religion, spirituality, and how some form of pluralism might improve the state of the world. When Venus enters Gemini on 04.11 prepare to be wined and dined…or maybe you are playing the chivalrous role. Whatever the case, there will be flirting, there will likely be affection, and there are sure to be theatrics and drama. Play the Queen, or King…let your brain have a rest, and indulge your heart and sensuality for a bit. The Solar Eclipse on 04.20 is likely to bring about refreshing change regarding your money, property or investments. Prepare for a new level of autonomy. Then cozy up in your nest for about 3 weeks when Mercury goes retrograde on 04.21 communication in the home should be strictly limited to positive reinforcement and glass half full dialogues to avoid hurt feelings and misunderstandings..best to pretend everyone in your household is made of fragile and precious porcelain.

      

    PISCES 

    Tarot Card: The Fool (jumper: Temperance)

    Pisces, April is big! You are about to or soon will enter into a new life phase or new personal journey through a fresh opportunity at your feet (or fins). The Fool asks you to engage your childlike optimism and joy and jump into the unknown. Release baggage, even material possessions that are taking up physical space, to make room for an upgrade. The Fool doesn’t need all the details and plans about the future, just the expectation and intuition that a new cycle or new start is meant to be right now. If you have been feeling stagnant, create an adventure, go travel, be spontaneous, shake things up… That is your medicine this month. The jumper, Temperance, is just some advice to stay in balance, as Pisces can easily move out of bounds before they know it, so use moderation and patience as your guideposts, but lean into something or someone new this month! It will open up and initiate a whole new chapter of learning, growth, and meaning, Pisces friends.
     

    Astro Snapshot:  

    You should feel pleasantly grounded this month, as your material wealth and resources take a turn for the better, and you’re enjoying your garden of earthly delights. Investments pay off, and you're drawn to hop out of your deep Piscean waters for a bit and lounge on a fainting couch a la’ TItian’s Venus. Full Moon in Libra on 04.06 plunges you back into the water craving some deep intimacy and maybe even a bit of taboo. A great time to discover new facets of your undulating diamond like love language. When Venus moves into Gemini on 04.11 the trick is to integrate your new love language into the nurturing fabric of your home environment. You are so generous and giving to those you care for, but you need to allow yourself to be adored too. This keeps the balance between master and servant or visa versa…everyone should be able to trade roles, much like the Yin and Yang Piscean fish do. Also consider the domestic roles ingrained in you by your parents and society and determine whether those are serving the authentic version of you, or does the program need to be updated?
