Even with steady Taurus season picking up later in April, now is still prime time for planting new seeds for the future and aiming high with ambitious goals.
You’ll get the best of both worlds this month — the flames of Aries providing you that innovative spark, and the practical foresight of Taurus telling you when and how to make a responsible first move.
How will you be seizing April?
Before you jump into action, let’s use the Tarot to go over what the energy of the month looks like for your particular zodiac sign, with one card each from the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana to comprise your monthly Tarotscope!
Your April 2022 Tarotscope
The Empress & Knight of Pentacles (Reversed)
Time to bring forth the life you’re looking for, Aries — Aries season style!
The Empress is a great omen for creative ideas, manifestations, and any goals you’d like to set into motion this month. Especially if you’ve been feeling stuck or in a creative rut, this card is an excellent sign for all of that to be melting away soon.
On the other hand, the Knight of Pentacles reversed indicates a hesitancy to take things slow. You may feel impatient or a bit too eager to see everything pan out immediately.
Remember that good things take time, even in speedy Aries season, and you’ll be good to go for April, Aries.

The Moon & King of Wands (Reversed)
The steady bull may be lacking some confidence this April as a curious energy washes over your month.
The Moon brings a bit of mystery to everything it touches, and you may suddenly feel like all the decisions you’ve made so far and every plan of action you’ve set into motion is no longer fully secure.
For the practical and level-headed bull, this can understandably shake up your confidence a bit. The King of Wands reversed points to feeling more confused and frustrated with your ambitions, drive, and sense of willpower.
Sometimes, however, a bit of fog is just what we need in order to appreciate a clear road, or seek wisdom without the power of sight. You’re capable of finding a creative way through, Taurus.
Strength (Reversed) & 7 of Cups (Reversed)
You may be feeling a bit out of sorts this month, Gemini.
Strength reversed shows us that you’re drawing upon some of that inner strength this month. You may be feeling a bit out of sync when it comes to body, mind, heart, and soul like these pieces just aren’t moving in one smooth movement.
The 7 of Cups reversed, however, points to the fact that deep down, you know what you should be doing — even if you’re not fully sure about the right way to get there. Even if it seems like there are too many possibilities on the table, you should be able to draw upon your intuition to guide the way.
Your greatest ally this month will be you, Gemini!
The Tower & 6 of Wands (Reversed)
In April, things are shaking up for Cancer.
Although it may not always be a lovely sight to see The Tower, shaking up your world and the world around you left and right, it’s often a necessary change that its destruction brings. The old is falling away in order to make way for the new.
However, with the 6 of Wands reversed, you may be feeling a bit alone throughout the process. You may feel like some of the projects or relationships you’ve been working towards aren’t going as planned, and your efforts are going unnoticed.
Although these feelings are more than valid, keep in mind that sometimes the way to success looks a lot different than we once anticipated. There will be a light at the end of the tunnel, sweet crab!
The Star & Page of Swords
New horizons shine bright for our shining star Leos this month.
The Star itself is the sign of peace and hope after some difficult times. Plus, the Page of Swords shows that you’re stepping up to the plate with your words and ideas, wielding skills of communication and problem-solving to help yourself and others.
Overall, this should be more of a peaceful, explorative period where you feel free to try new things, connect with new people, and express yourself in a new way.
You deserve it, Leo! Wield the sword of communication well.

Justice (Reversed) & 10 of Wands (Reversed)
Ready to find your balance again, Virgo?
The 10 of Wands reversed is a sign you’re ready to let some lingering burdens go. You tend to have a knack for taking on more responsibility than you perhaps should, and this card is here to tell you it’s time to slow down and take a rest stop.
What’s more, Justice reversed also sits on the table, indicating something has been out of balance for a while. It’s time to be honest about what needs to go and what is actually worth keeping around in your life now, or else the Universe may make those moves for you by the end of April.
Clear your mind and heart, and listen to the voice within that shows you how to properly tip the scales back into balance.
The Hermit (Reversed) & 7 of Pentacles (Reversed)
It’s time to slow down and reflect, Libra.
The Hermit reversed indicates it’s time to use the illuminating knowledge hidden within and seek the answers you already know (that you may have forgotten). This may mean reconnecting with your understanding of purpose or life itself if you’re willing to go deep!
As much as all this reflecting is important, however, the 7 of Pentacles reversed cautions that you don’t lean into procrastination or indecision when it comes to your practical day-to-day life.
Get reflective, but remember to live your life with presentness too, Libra!
The Hierophant (Reversed) & 4 of Swords (Reversed)
Contemplative and emotionally complex Scorpio knows that everything can’t always be sunshine and rainbows.
This April, The Hierophant reversed shines a light on difficulties you may have with traditional systems, authority, and people that seem to hold power over you in life. For some, you may even feel like you have to assume such a role, and are finding yourself uncomfortable with the task.
With the 4 of Swords reversed, it’s only important to keep in mind that you can’t solve every problem in the world. Be careful of burning yourself out with trying to fix everything, even if you do have a tendency to feel things quite deeply.
Whether you go with the flow or rebel against the current, just make sure that you’re well-rested and properly focused on whatever you choose.
The Devil (Reversed) & 7 of Swords (Reversed)
Bad energy is heading out the door — Sagittarius are saying “good vibes only” for April.
The Devil reversed indicates you’re letting go of negative lingering burdens, bad habits, and overall restrictive energy that may have been holding you back. The 7 of Swords additionally clarifies that you want to do this thoroughly — no sneaky ways around the issues at hand.
Although this is difficult work, you may feel like it’s a necessary set of steps rather than a chore. Plus, your Sagittarian optimism tends to make the most of any situation!
Kudos to you for getting the necessary jobs done, Sagittarius. By the end of April, your energetic load will feel much lighter.
The Sun (Reversed) & 8 of Wands
Moving forward, despite any emotional difficulties.
With The Sun reversed in your hand for April, you may not be feeling up to par with what you’d typically like to be. It may feel like you’ve lost your spark for some things that you typically enjoy, or that it’s difficult to find fulfillment in your current tasks.
Regardless, the 8 of Wands indicates you’ll be persevering through quickly and efficiently — which is to be expected from diligent and strong-willed Capricorn, after all.
Be careful that you don’t burn yourself out quickly in the process, Capricorn, no matter if your efforts are getting the job done.

Temperance & 8 of Pentacles
Slow and steady wins the race this month for Aquarius.
You’re working hard on goals and projects you’ve already invested effort into this month, with the 8 of Pentacles shining a positive light, especially on finances, career, and home life. Taking things day by day is the key to long-term success here.
Plus, Temperance is a solid confirmation that patience and moderation are key. Rather than investing all your time and energy all in at once, you’re moving at a more constructive and sustainable pace this month.
Keep treading onward, Aquarius! You’re on a great track.
The Emperor (Reversed) & Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)
You’re getting your ducks back in a row this month, Pisces.
Perhaps the fiery Aries energy of April is just not vibing well with your Piscean spirit, but either way The Emperor reversed is pointing to some difficulties with standing your ground, setting firm boundaries, and taking the lead.
Additionally, the Queen of Pentacles reversed illuminates concerns surrounding your sense of abundance and physical security. You may encounter issues with others where they cross lines or try to take advantage of your kind heart.
Ultimately, putting your foot down is an uncomfortable act but a necessary one. Channel that inner fire and stand firm in what’s right.
