Daily Tarotscopes by the Tarot Priestess - April 16, 20217 minute
By Mahasweta Mazumder
Aries (March 21 - April 20):
Ten of Wands announces that you may feel as if you're carrying a very heavy load. Perhaps you will want to take a look at it and see if there are ways to reduce this burden. If you look carefully it may turn out that some of the emotional burdens you carry belongs to someone else. Sometimes the Ten of Wands can also indicate that you have been too successful and you will be burdened by this. You are probably tired. You're working hard on personal and professional matters and you need a break.
Taurus (April 21- May 21):
Six of Cups represents looking back at what made you happy in the past. Many people look at the past and fixate on the difficult moments worthy of therapy sessions. However, if you look at your past in its totality, you will realize that along with difficulties there were times when you were joyful and optimistic about the future. The past holds important clues as to what will bring you fulfillment in the future. If you felt happy before you can feel happy again.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21):
The Sun is considered to be one of the best cards of the deck. It signifies success, optimism, and everything generally working out as it should. The Sun is life, light, and vitality. The truth is the Sun’s energy is present not just for today but every day. We just get so wrapped up in our drama and inner turmoil, that we forget to remember this. Every day the sun rises. Every day there is a new opportunity to feel grateful for existing, to make good choices, and to celebrate living.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22):
The Knight of Swords actually brings a fairly upbeat and cheerful energy. Knights can often mean that someone or something desirable is about to seek you out. The Knight of Swords also points to your physical, emotional, and spiritual energy being at its peak. The Knight of Swords can point to lots of activity, travel, being out and about, getting things accomplished. You are unlikely to feel like waiting for anything to come to you. That's a good thing. Go after your harsh desire.
Leo (July 23 - August 23):
The Three of Wands reveals that your life is like a huge blank canvas. It is waiting for you to create a masterpiece that depicts your heart's desire. Despite your fears, nothing has been irreparably messed up yet. There is time, time to take a courageous journey toward your bliss. The only thing is, you must stop to identify what bliss is for you. If you can name your bliss, you are on your way to claiming it.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22):
The Ace of Sword swoops in today to encourage you to seize the day, take on the challenge and cut away all that holds you back. A fresh new beginning is being presented to you but it is entirely up to you to take that first step and accept what is being offered. The Ace of Swords can also represent a new job, a new project, a bright idea, a course, or a workshop. Don't let the usual things hold you back today. Just notice them but don't give them any power. Better yet, cut away the cords that bind you so you can move forward in a fearless fashion.
Libra (September 23 - October 23):
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22):
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21):
Knight of Pentacles is here today to encourage you to take your time to think things through, but don't get too hung up on playing it safe. The Knight of Pentacles is a sensible, hesitant knight. He is the only Knight in the tarot who isn’t moving forward. This suggests that you may feel like things have come to a standstill or you're hesitating about moving forward on your path because you want to make sure you're going in the right direction. The card also indicates a strong need to feel safe and secure. This can become a problem if it continuously holds you back from taking risks and stepping outside your comfort zone. Focus on feeling safe even when you're challenged on in unfamiliar surroundings. This will help you move forward on your path with confidence.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20):
The Three of Pentacles is all about meaningful work. Everyone has a purpose in life and when you are fully aligned with your purpose and working towards a greater vision, you feel alive, energised and as if you are at the right place at the right time doing what you're meant to do. If you feel like you are living your purpose, this card comes as a confirmation letting you know that all your hard work is paying off. However if you still feel like you are still struggling to find meaningful work, ask yourself,”if i had all of the money i could dream of and didn't need to worry about my finances, what would I do with my life?
Aquarius (January 21 -February 18):
Eight of Pentacles is all about the daily grind of hard work, routine and ordinariness. The Eight of Pentacles comes to remind you that beauty, happiness and pleasure can be found in the ordinary. Practise just simply being today. Don't think about goals, dreams and the future or the past. Just enjoy what's going on around you even if it's a bit boring. The card also stands for working towards something important. You may feel like you are putting in a lot of hard work or time in a job or a project, that isn't really paying off right now. It will eventually, if you have patience and enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20):
Seven of Swords suggests, you're trying to sneak away from something. It can be tempting to shove responsibility for something. especially if that something is out of your comfort zone and is a bit scary. Most importantly don't run from your thoughts today. Observe them carefully because they hold the key to what is really going on with you. This time it feels like you need to persevere and not give up just because something is difficult. Examine your thoughts as if they were a sly intruder who is stuck in your mind.
