Now that the first full week of April is officially underway, it’s not surprising that the stars have something good cooking for us!
The goods begin with Mercury, the planet of communication and thought, entering romantic, sensual, grounded, and practical Taurus. When this transit occurs on the 3rd, it’ll be time to get down to business (or it’s time for a little romance initiated through a meaningful conversation or two… you decide).
Then, make way for the Full Moon in Libra taking place on the 6th. If your intentions for love and romance didn’t come through just a few days before, no fear! Another Venus-ruled sign is taking hold in the sky here, and the vibe for making connections and peaceful interactions is strong.
But as always, we’re sure you’re now wondering what it all means for you at a more personal level. And here, that’s what the Tarot is for!
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for April 3 – 9, 2023
9 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Aries may find that abundance and indulgence don’t come easily this week.
It may feel like there’s little time to wind down and really enjoy yourself with the 9 of Pentacles reversed. The fruits of your labor may also seem so distant, like they’re moons away from being picked.
The lack of rest and lack of reward can make you feel like you’re on the “wrong track,” but the truth is that there’s nothing that the willpower and drive that the bold ram can’t handle.
Like with everything else in your life, you’ll persevere through this tough time too!
Page of Swords (Reversed)
Taurus may struggle to get their words out into the world right now.
Despite all of the sensual, communication-focused energy we saw written in the stars, the Page of Swords reversed indicates that Taurus may feel tempted to rush in too quickly.
The key here is not to do anything that doesn’t feel genuine or natural. Just because now feels like crunch time for saying what’s on your mind doesn’t mean it should be forced out.
Take this week slow and steady, Taurus.
The High Priestess
Gemini is looking to more esoteric sources for wisdom this week.
If that seems mysterious, it’s because The High Priestess herself is pretty well-veiled within that mystery!
Within her energy, we feel called to listen deeply to our intuitions, to the voice inside that we often try to drown out with logic or worldly expectations and standards.
It’s time to look within or perhaps even beyond. Lead with the unconventional, the unconscious, and the intuitive this week.
We sense it may be like the following: on the one hand, some Cancers may feel like they’re heavily judging themselves, as the lens of this wise card is turned inward (or “upside-down”).
On the other hand, some Cancers may feel overall more disconnected from the long-term vision and perspective that they need. It can feel like what you once thought you knew about the world no longer seems true.
And for some, a mix of both may be true. Whatever the case is for you, it’ll be time for re-evaluation and sitting down to observe and hear the real truth at hand.
Leo is undergoing a period of change and transformation right now!
This profound experience is well-captured by Death, which is not as damper as it initially seems. (Here, there’s no need to fear the reaper).
Indeed, it’s actually just a time for turning over a new leaf, focusing on the “new you,” and orienting yourself in a direction that isn’t fearful of the unknown.
Plus, the drama of this energy (which can feel a little over the top sometimes, more intense than other cards) is nothing that the bold lion can’t handle!
7 of Wands
Virgo, you’re not one to quit easily; this week is no exception.
The 7 of Wands asks for your full strength of will, perseverance, and unwavering desire to never give up. Right now may feel like a consistent uphill battle, like you’re a hamster running on an endless wheel.
You’re not just someone who is “good at working” as your reputation may have you seem. You’re also determined, and you fight for what matters.
So remember what you’re really fighting for here, Virgo.
The Hanged Man
Libra, you’re in a secure spot for observation and self-reflection right now.
With The Hanged Man on the table, it’s clear that you’re engaged within your surroundings in one way or another. You’re trying to survey all the facts, get an idea of the next best move, and feel out what’s right for you intuitively too.
From this position, there’s a lot of potential insight to be gained. But it’s important to recognize that you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
In other words, right now should be only about observing. Observe and reflect now, and act later. Wait before jumping to conclusions.
Scorpio, you have quite a handful of energy on the table this week in the form of The Lovers.
For some moody and brooding Scorpion friends, this week embraces the crossroads aspect of The Lovers. You may feel caught between different paths involving different feelings, unsure which to take.
For others, this week is about connections, love, and fortifying bonds that matter.
And for a select few, it may be a combination of all of the above! Either way, the key is to trust your heart. It tends to know more than we sometimes give it credit for.
7 of Pentacles
Sagittarius has a steady, contemplative, and potentially very productive week at hand.
With the 7 of Pentacles in your hand, you may find that this week is an ideal one for lining out your goals, charting those plans, and ironing out the details and fine lines.
This isn’t necessarily about doing the work just yet, but planning for it, making space for it, and remaining curious about it.
Ask questions, venture outside of the box, and give yourself the time to think it all through.
2 of Pentacles
Capricorn is taking “work hard, play hard” seriously this week.
The 2 of Pentacles always bring a welcomed balancing energy to the table, asking that you focus not just on one thing but two. This is especially with regard to work and finances.
For Capricorn, you may also feel like it’s your skills themselves that need to be equally utilized.
It’s not just about managing specific roles or tasks assigned to you but genuinely challenging yourself to engage with many things because you want to improve and improve yourself.
The World (Reversed)
What to do when The World itself suddenly goes topsy-turvy?
For Aquarius, a little eclectic strangeness and whimsy are not all that weird. For all we know, you may have started some of it!
On a serious note, with this card in reversed position, you may feel more disconnected and disoriented than usual. You’re on the brink of something good and new, but you may also wonder if it’s all just in your head. Are you just stagnating and imagining that progress is on its way?
Of course, in reality, the answer is not so pessimistic. Realistically, feelings of disconnection happen from time to time. Roll with the flow and keep the faith.
Ace of Swords
Pisces may have struggled semi-recently with feeling misunderstood and frazzled, but this week is about making those breakthroughs you’ve needed.
The Ace of Swords brings an exciting new momentum to your life, and it may come in the form of an idea, a conversation, or a different kind of breakthrough that you’ve been seeking (a solution to a problem, for example).
One thing is for sure: it may come and go quickly, and it’s up to you to seize the moment when it arises.
How will you keep an open mind to what the Universe has to offer?
