Watch as Pluto turns retrograde this week on April 29th, ending our retrograde-free status as a collective. Mercury will enter Gemini on that same day, shifting our communication from Fiery to fresh, innovative, and curious.
What does it all mean? Well, you can look at your birth chart and personal transits to get an idea of how these things affect you. But here, we also enjoy a mix of astrology with Tarot cards — a bit of the technical and the mystical.
So, let’s check in with your weekly Tarotscope to see what the cards say, too — based on your zodiac sign!
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for April 25 – May 1, 2022
9 of Swords
The 9 of Swords is no easy sight to witness or digest.
This week, the difficulties you face will likely be internal, Aries. Sometimes the issue isn’t that a job is too hard, but that you’re telling yourself that it is, y’know?
This isn’t usually a problem for Aries, with their go-getter and “can do” attitude. But perhaps you’ve burnt yourself out lately or run into a couple of losses (and received too few wins).
Now is the time to sit with yourself and listen to what these difficult inner stirrings may have to teach you about what’s still left to work on (but this time, within yourself).
Page of Pentacles
Taurus has been on a bit of a productive streak lately!
This week you’re gifted with the Page of Pentacles in your energy for the week, which isn’t so much a physical gift but more so the ability to give a gift to yourself.
In other words, this week is all about seeing the potential for opportunity in everything, appreciating the beauty in the little things, and of course, getting into the process instead of stressing over the outcome.

4 of Swords (Reversed)
You had a missed appointment with rest about a month ago, Gemini. You’re way past due!
The 4 of Swords is usually a welcome card of rejuvenation and getting back into shape. Sometimes it’s also indicative of spiritual cleansing and a need to get back into touch with yourself at a soul level.
Reversed, this may be dawning on you in a more uncomfortable way. You’re already tired and have been needing the rest since… forever ago.
Take this as your green light to get some R&R this week — this time, your aches won’t go away if you keep exercising!
3 of Cups (Reversed)
You’re feeling a bit out of sync with others this week, Cancer.
This might be a case of “too much of a good thing.” The 3 of Cups can be good in moderation — a lot of affection, lighthearted banter, sweetness, and even flirting or partying. But the reversal indicates discomfort.
It’s not a secret that Cancerians require a bit of depth and stability from their connections with others. You want a relationship (not just romantic) to feel like it vibes with those inner depths of yours.
So this week, the lack of this may feel uncomfortable. But it’s not a sign to give up or lower your standards; just schedule some quality “me time” for now.
Ace of Swords (Reversed)
You’re experiencing burnout, Leo, but specifically in the realm of communication.
The bold and beautiful Leo loves the spotlight just as much as (or perhaps more than) anyone. But right now appears to be not the time. There are miscommunications aplenty right now and a lot of potential for things to be misconstrued.
The Ace of Swords upright might be a good sign to speak up, but the reversal is a hint to process something internally instead.
Page of Swords (Reversed)
Slow down, Virgo. Not everyone is meeting your pace.
The Page of Swords reversed indicates you might be going too hard with a “go, go, go” energy. It’s possible you really do see something everyone doesn’t, and that time is of the essence, and/or that there’s something missing that needs to be fixed.
But matching the pace of others right now will likely support you best. What others do is not in your control, so for now, release the need to fix everything in your sight.
The key to success this week is… you!
Some self-control and self-awareness are the keys to success, more specifically. This week is all about tapping into internal resources and realizing that everything you need is right within you, Libra.
There are no quick tips or fast solutions. You’ll just need to be aligned with yourself to achieve your goals this week. And you can achieve them!
Just keep in mind that this is about all parts of you — emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical.
2 of Wands (Reversed)
There’s no rush to the finish line, Scorpio.
The 2 of Wands reversed may point to frustrations surrounding future goals and aspirations. Whether your travel plans got delayed or you’re just not sure about that big career dream of yours, impatience is clouding your week.
Just remember that life changes more randomly and unexpectedly than you think. Undesirable shifts may be unfortunate for now, but you never know when the tide will turn in your favor.
A beautiful stage of healing is here for you, Sagittarius.
The Star reunites you with some of the most beautiful energy in the deck. A time of rest, recuperation, and rejuvenation is here. But it’s not just about healing an emotional wound through typical healing techniques.
Now is a time to engage with yourself and your healing with creative pursuits and spirituality — paint a picture or even sling some Tarot cards.
You’re ready to move forward by living in the here and now.
7 of Cups
This week, you’ve gone to the next in the sequence! The 7 of Cups still keeps you in a more imaginative, dreamy, emotionally-rooted state. But this time, you’re taking it a little too far.
Capricorns do have a tendency to contemplate the best outcomes for the future. But the 7 of Cups is too dreamy and strange to be productive.
Rather than focusing on the details, the possible plans, and all of the extra fluff, it’s going to be more productive this week to jump into action headfirst.
Knight of Pentacles
Slow and steady wins the race. Idealistic at heart with big dreams, Aquarius actually knows this.
The Knight of Pentacles is supporting you this week in this slow but productive energy. It’s a period for appreciating the little things, finding progress in the small routines rather than big outcomes, and knowing deep down that you’ll achieve something big someday.
It may not be the time for a grand celebration quite yet, but it can still be fun — who said work can’t be a good time?
Grounded thinking and processing can sometimes elude dreamy Pisces.
This week, however, Judgement grants you the gift of 20/20 vision, and not literally in the eyes!
Trust your intuition, your reasoning, and your ability to know right from wrong this week. This is a good time to be making decisions, signing off contracts, and saying “yes” or “no” conclusively to stuff that matters to you, Pisces.
You’re ready (and capable) to pass judgment in your own way.
How to Use Your Tarotscope
You know what the cards say is in store for your week ahead…Now what?
Life is always changing, and the future is dependent on our own actions. Whether it’s your Tarotscope, a personal Tarot reading, or a personal horoscope, the key is learning to take the knowledge from each into your own hands.
This may mean making a list of important reminders that you won’t want to forget from your Tarotscope and placing them around your home space. Or it might mean meditating on the messages themselves.
Whatever it is for you, your weekly Tarotscope is here to make that preparation a little easier!
