Weekly Tarotscopes by the Tarot Priestess(12th - 18th April)6 minute
By Mahasweta Mazumder
Aries(March 21- April 20):
Page of Cups makes his appearance to remind us that sometimes we need to give ourselves permission to play and be social in unstructured and creative ways in order to improve the quality of life. It urges us to make a conscious effort, to incorporate more humor into our daily interactions, to open ourselves up to intimacy, to slow down, and take care of our emotional needs. Therefore no matter what's going on in your world this week, make sure to dedicate some time during the day for activities that will boost your happiness and joy.
Taurus(April 21- May 21):
The Moon is a mysterious secretive card that hints that there is important information you need to discover this week. Put on your detective cap and start your investigation. Ask questions, watch closely and do some research. Don't do anything until you have uncovered the mystery. It will illuminate what you need to do next.
Gemini(May 22- June 21):
Life brings us lessons from all directions and they never stop. The Page of Pentacles asks you to think of things that have hurt or worried you as a learning experience. Try and extract the wisdom and then act on it. When we reframe our hardships this way, they become more manageable. It is true what they say that failures help us to grow stronger.
Cancer(June 22- July 22):
The Two of Pentacles brings some universal advice; it's time to get busy. You need variety to reignite your spark and start fresh. So whatever you're doing, do more, make it bigger, bolder, and better. Seek new horizons. Embrace opportunity. It's time to grow. Build and expand. Go get it.
Leo (July 23- August 23):
Ace of Wands represents breakthroughs, inspirations, new ideas, it hails brilliant new thinking that has the potential to grow into solid reality. Like the many branches sprouting from the wand, you are experiencing an exciting period of mental growth. You are branching out into new realms of possibilities. The Ace of Wands motivates freshly inspired concepts that can carry you over old obstacles.
Virgo (August 24- September 22):
The Seven of Swords represents using your wits to overcome current obstacles. It reminds you to not fight life’s difficulties but to use your intelligence to bypass something that appears fixed or immovable. The Seven of Swords reminds you that it's not over until it's actually over and there is usually a way to succeed if you don't give up. You're more clever than your current challenges but you must think smarter not work harder.
Libra (September 23- October 23):
The Hierophant is all about authority, convention, tradition, and structures, all the invisible bonds that tie us to certain people or places or roles. Maybe you are questioning the things you thought you believed in, maybe you're changing and that means that things around you need to change too. Follow this thought process and see where you lie.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22):
Two of Pentacles represents juggling unexpected events, these experiences aren't good or bad. They're nearly uncorrectable. The infinity symbol binding the two coins represents the eternal truth that life doesn't always go according to plan. The Juggler on the card survives the undulations of fortune because it remains flexible and adaptable. So how do you respond when things don't go according to plan, do you get angry and petrified or are you able to retain your good humor.
Sagittarius (November 23- December 21):
The Fool is an optimistic and enthusiastic representative of new beginnings. Clean slates and fresh starts. Whatever new adventures have been calling to you recently, it's time to take that first step. Don't worry about what others will say. Don’t overthink the long-term impact. Don't worry about following a specific path. You set your own route. It's time to take the vital first steps on this exciting new journey.
Capricorn( December 22- January 20):
Page of Swords represents unnecessary defensiveness. These defenses guard a wounded area of the heart that needs healing. The Page of Swords guards himself from the feedback others give which stunts his development. He often pretends that he is fine and that it is everyone else who has the issue. If the Page of Swords could lower his unneeded defenses he would experience a huge breakthrough. His openness will get him past the blockages he keeps experiencing. He would then ascend to the next level.
Aquarius(January 21-February 18):
Stop overdoing it. You are in danger of burning out. The Ten of Wands is a warning about working too hard. Less can be more right now. You need to put anything that is urgent on hold and refocus on what's left. You need to take a step back right now.
Pisces(February 19- March 20):
The Strength card is the card of managing your own emotions so that you can use or harness them rather than being governed entirely by them. Its appearance reminds you that your willingness to accept what is going on around you and get uncomfortable in order to change and improve are the keys to developing the grit you need to face your current challenges and this week it has come to urge you to dig deep into your abilities to convince your subconscious mind into believing that you are capable of overcoming your setbacks and obstacles, your resiliency to set goals, make decisions and put in the necessary effort in order to move towards getting back on the right track. So be open to the achievement of your mission. Be confident in what you do and be determined to keep pushing forward.
