Daily Tarotscopes by the Tarot Priestess - April 19, 20216 minute
By Mahasweta Mazumder
Aries (March 21 - April 20):
At the very least today, you will either seek structure or be confined by it. Rules, rigidity, and dealing with people who won't budge. Like government employees, school administrators, doctors, receptionists, etc. At the very best you will seek to understand higher values, esotery principles and question religious doctrine. There is nothing to say here whether those questions are to aid your spiritual growth or to tear apart the foundation of your religious upbringing. Today you face structures of every kind. Some you welcome, others you hate. What is interesting is how you may not have been thinking about these things before, but now they are front and center. Structure is important for life.
Taurus (April 21- May 21):
The finishing line is close, projects are nearing completion and your plans are coming together. If you were struggling to find the endpoint, know you are there already. You don't have to be a perfectionist 24/7 and you don't need to see everything. The end is here now so you can stop now. Talking of ends doesn't mean a bad ending either. This ending is a good one and if it doesn't feel that way just yet, know that it will. And you will see that the ending now is right on time. In other ways, the World can also denote travel. So planning a holiday or a trip is favorable. As one door closes another opens and your next adventure awaits you.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21):
This is a lovely day to remember times gone by and to connect with those who are important to you. This could be as simple as coffee with an old school friend where you reminisce about fun times in school, it could be a game night with your friends, it could be sifting through your box of old photographs and organizing them into new albums, it can also be sitting quietly and remembering your ancestors that you knew and the ones that you didn’t and connecting with them spiritually through a quiet meditation. It is all about remembering your family and friends and also remembering the fun times you had with them.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22):
The King of Wands tells that you have dynamic energy today, you fire people up and get things done. On a personal level, you are the King of the Wands; charismatic, commanding and even magical. You have a presence. Whatever you touch turns to gold and comes to life. You don't have to choose who or what projects receive your Midas touch. It will permeate everything you encounter today.
Leo (July 23 - August 23):
The Five of Cups is related to tangible losses such as money, possessions, relationship and work or the losses could be intangible such as dreams, opportunities, prospects or reputation. The loss, the sorry, the regret could be great or small. That said, you should not be discouraged by the appearance of this card because every negative has a positive side to it. Every loss indicates a change. We need to go with the flow. If we struggle to hold on to what is gone, we struggle more.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22):
Libra (September 23 - October 23):
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22):
When the Magician card appears in a tarot reading it is a sign that you have all the skills and abilities you need to be successful. The universe is aligning to bring some positive changes your way. This card shows you that you must use your intellect, concentration, and willpower to make things happen. The Magician usually signifies a time in your life when you have the power to manifest the outcome you want. If it is referring to other people in your life, it usually refers to someone who you can learn from, whose abilities and wisdom will impress you.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21):
The Four of Swords symbolizes our need to find inner peace. It also encourages rest and recuperation. The appearance of this card gently reminds you to pay attention to your body and any areas where tension has been building up. Today you may need to give yourself some peace and quiet to rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. You may also find that it's time to let go of whatever is preventing a sense of peace and causing inner suffering.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20):
Six of Cups tells that it is the time to learn the lessons of the past while being careful not to dwell there. It may point to a simpler way of living. Life is complicated enough and as time and age creep up, it seems that things become even more complex and harder to understand. But it need not be so. Look at how a child embraces the day with enthusiasm and wonder. The ability to face the future with joy and anticipation is available to anyone and is the secret to true happiness. Do not get caught up in regrets of what might have been, not yearned too much for the glamour or thrills of days gone by. Remember the happy days to be sure and yet don't forget to live in the present. The ability to find true happiness is equated with one's ability to be present to your life as it is now and the relationships with others. There is a need to declutter and simplify your life now.
Aquarius (January 21 -February 18):
King of Cups suggests that your willingness to work with your emotion is where your power lies. You don't need to run from overwhelming feelings. Go into them, feel them, let them do their thing. You may appear calm and collected to others. This is why people seek you out for emotional support. But under the surface, you are a tumultuous sea of emotional activity. As you explore your emotions, you will learn more and more about yourself which gives you a mature powerful king-like presence in the world. So don't be afraid to get your feet wet in the emotional waters today.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20):
The Four of Wands is all about connecting with others. For no other reason than to have laughter, humor, and fun. The Four of Wands appears to remind us that having occasional fun isn't something to feel guilty about. It is necessary to remain a balanced human being. Sometimes there is no substitute for sipping a cool glass of wine outdoors with someone who makes you feel good. There will always be a long list of unfinished things to do. Whether you take a break or not they will still be waiting for you. So why not return to your tasks in a good mood. Celebrate an accomplishment you made or a goal you reached. Treat yourself. Life isn't just about flitting from one busy task to another. It is also about occasionally stopping yourself and just enjoying the present.
