April 2018 Tarotscope
How is the Mercury retrograde working out for you? Only a couple of weeks to go. It will all be over on April 15th.
Interestingly enough it’s quite a quiet month in terms of the planets. We finally get to a month where we have just one full moon. After having 2 in January, none in February and 2 in March! This ties in nicely with April being the 4th month of the year. If we are looking at numerology 4s are about stability, strength and setting the foundations. This theme comes through quite nicely in quite a few of the cards for the month.
It’s not too late to download your detailed half-year tarotscope.
March 21 – April 19
The Devil (reversed)
Are your fears taking hold? This could be a really good month to face them so you can live a lighter life. It’s your birthday time so why not make the commitment to let go of at least one of your fears. Remember that the Devil doesn’t control you. Those chains around the neck are quite loose and you have the chance to remove them and walk away. Remember that we always have choice. There could be temptation heading your way this month but you must be strong and choose the right path. You need to take responsibility and be accountable for your actions. Be careful not to over-indulge this month. You totally have the power to keep the Devil in check but it might take a little bit of effort.
April 20 – May 20
10 of Swords
It’s time to finally let go. You can’t expect to move on until you have closed the chapter and tied up the loose ends. If you are looking to start a new relationship you have to be sure to finally move on from your past. There is a bright new dawn on the horizon but there is unfinished business. You need to ask yourself what it is that has to go this month. Conditions are looking good for you to start this new chapter but change can be challenging. It’s human nature to try to hold on and not fully surrender. Uncertainty can be scary but you also need to think of change as exciting and an adventure. You don’t necessarily need to have the end goal in mind. Enjoy the journey and see where it takes you.
May 21 – June 20
4 of Pentacles
This is going to be a stable month for you. It might not be the most exciting but there is a chance for you to consolidate your finances and get yourself back on track. Maybe you are saving for a trip or perhaps you are going to get your head down at work and just get on with things. It’s not a month to make sweeping changes. The status quo can actually be quite refreshing. I’m drawn to what looks like a keyhole in the back of his chair. Is the work that you are doing now going to unlock future possibilities? Enjoy the calm and the stability as we really don’t know what is around the corner.
June 21 – July 22
The Magician (reversed)
You have so much going for you but somehow you can’t see it. You have all these skills and wonderful tools that you have gathered throughout your journey. It’s now time for you to pull everything together and manifest the future you want. The reversal is showing up as a lack of belief. Are you sabotaging yourself? Have faith that you can have whatever you want and don’t be afraid to express this to the Universe. This could be a really good month for manifestation but you are really going to have to work on your confidence. Make a commitment to achieve one thing this month. What is it that you really want? A new job? A soul mate? Great friends? Choose one thing, commit, make the wish and do everything in your power to make it happen!
July 23 – August 22
Are you judging yourself too harshly? We can be our own biggest critics sometimes. It’s important that we take some time out to reflect whenever we see the Judgement card. There is a temptation to keep pushing forward without taking stock of where we have come from or what we have achieved. The reversal could show that you are reluctant to look back. When you do take the time to look back, don’t be hard on yourself. Yes, you may have made mistakes but the important thing is to learn from those mistakes so you are stronger next time. Maybe you have played things badly in your relationship or perhaps you missed out on a job because you didn’t prepare properly. You need to realise that you have another chance. It’s time to move forward with the knowledge that you have gained and start over as an even better version of yourself.
August 23 – September 22
4 of Wands
This is the time to celebrate. It’s time to get together with your community and share the love. This could be friends, family or any like-minded individuals. There is a real sense of a tribe coming together and celebrating. The wands indicate passion and fire. Seek out those people who support you and lift you up. You are looking for those who inspire you and make you feel that you are living your best life. Kick up your heels, have some fun and don’t apologise for who you are. You are building some strong foundations for your future and having these people around you will make you feel safe and secure.
September 23 – October 22
Ace of Pentacles
Arguably the best card in the deck. There is a golden opportunity headed your way. It’s up to you to grab that seed, plant it, nurture it and watch it grow. You have fertile land and there is a door there just waiting for you to enter. This is a chance for a new beginning and the pentacles suggest that it will be related to money, career, the home etc. Conditions are looking very good for your material and earthly belongings. You have to remember that there is no such thing as a quick win. This is your opportunity to grow something amazing but you are still going to have to put the work in.
October 23 – November 21
Page of Pentacles (reversed)
You have some lessons to learn this month. There is a reluctance to go back to the beginning and relearn something that you thought you already knew. This is understandable. However, it’s important that you get this foundation work right before moving on. Is there some study that you need to do or perhaps you are going to have to take a step back to move forward? There is definitely a chance for a new beginning and again we see a seed in the hand. However, we don’t have the skills yet to nurture that seed. Be sure to work on yourself this month and you should see yourself leaving the month smarter, wiser and more prepared than you were at the start of the moment.
November 22 – December 21
The Hanged Man
You were on a bit of a roller-coaster last month. It’s now time to take a break, reflect and plan your next move. Don’t rush into anything this month. In fact, you might need this time out so you can have a fresh approach or new outlook/perspective on any problems you are facing. This month is about enlightenment. You have to allow the space for this to happen. It’s a really good time for you to focus on meditation or yoga. The Universe is telling you to take a break. This is not about avoiding burnout. There is a fresh download heading your way but if you don’t make room for it you won’t be able to fit it in. This could be an exciting month for you. Are you going to allow this information to penetrate your mind and your soul?
December 22 – January 19
9 of Wands
You have been getting a lot of wands over the last couple of months. It shows me that you are very passionate and fiery. This can be a blessing and a curse. You have fought for so long for what you believe in that you are left a little bit battered and bruised. You just have to be careful that you have not shut yourself off. It looks like you are building a bit of a fortress around yourself. It’s fine to protect yourself but you still need to allow yourself to be vulnerable and let people in. You are actually very close to achieving your goals but you need to keep moving and allow others to help. You could almost become cynical and think that you need to do everything on your own if you want it done properly. Open up, embrace all that you have achieved and let others in.
January 20 – February 18

You are so close to achieving what you have set out to do but you are quickly approaching burn-out. I’m reminded of the marathon runners who collapse just before they cross the finish line. Don’t let this happen to you! Get your head up and remember what you are aiming for. You may need to lighten your load. This can be sacrificing part of your plan but it can be good to cut your losses. You might also need to ask for and accept help! You have come so far on your own but it’s crunch time and you could need just that little bit of help and support to get you over the line. Maybe you need to ask your boss for a helping hand, perhaps you need to get a professional in to help you with the last bit of your renovation or maybe you just need a kind word to keep you going! Just believe that you are almost there but do whatever you need to do to get to the finish line.
February 19 – March 20
The High Priestess
You are blessed with the gift of intuition this month. You feel really in-tune and you will be getting signs left, right and center. It’s important that you stay awake through the whole month and pay attention to these signs. The High Priestess has a lot of secrets and you may not be fully aware of where she is guiding you but it’s important that you take action. She is going to help you bring balance to your life and bring a sense of calm. You might want to listen to my High Priestess meditation to see what she needs to tell you.
Have a great month. xox
