Tarotscopes: April 2015 with the Karma Tarot
5 of Wands
Stop for a moment and contemplate the current state of your life. Where are you bleeding away your energy? What is eating away at your heart? What is stealing your light? Stand strong, and gather your emotions. This is a time of self-empowerment, and composure. Don’t be afraid to standout. Wave your banner high. Communicate what you are thinking, feeling, desiring. What questions do you have for the Universe? For the people around you? Don’t make assumptions. Ask questions. Challenge the picture before you.
Aries March 21-April 19
Lilith (The Empress)
Aries, look at where you’ve been. Look at what you’ve learned, experienced, and had the opportunity to explore. You are worldly, even when you don’t feel so. You have seen heartache, and love. You have seen the dark and the light. Hold tight to your power, and radiate it out into the world. You don’t have to take action, to be in motion. Let your power, your ideas, and your dreams, germinate. Be subtle, go inward, and let the force inside of you propel its way outward in its perfect time!
Taurus April 20-May 20
7 of Coins
You are in a very receptive place, Taurus. Taking in, and taking on the things bubbling and crackling around you. Be gentle with yourself, as you are feeling overwhelmed by the flood of emotions and information. This is a very psychic time for you, drifting in the lofty world of the between places. As an earth sign, this tends to be a little unnerving for you. Feel your feet beneath you. Say hello to the unknown. Most of all… wait, and listen.
Gemini May 21-June 21
4 of Wands
This is a time of orchestrating, and calculating plans, moves and next steps. You can take a single atom, and build a universe. You have the power within you to make all things a reality. You may not feel this capable right now, but know that you are laying down the foundation, planting the seeds for something much bigger than even you can imagine. Stay strong, stay steady, and be comforted in the knowledge that even subtle gestures can make waves.
Cancer June 21-July 22
Cancer, you are grappling with emotions, and have a tendency toward retreat. You find yourself wilting under the pressure of daily demands. You are thinking too much to move rhythmically with the beat of the Universe right now. Stop forcing, stop fearing… and just start flowing. You cannot subdue the beasts of the unknown by fighting against it. The real secret is to touch it gently, intently… and let your heartbeat link into the heartbeat of that which you fear the most.
Leo July 23-August 22
Knight of Coins
Your present state of mind has been on where you are at, where you are going, and will you have the resources to fund your next path. Leo, you are a creature of fire, of life and movement. You blaze in an aura of intensity. To touch the earth too closely can make you feel heavy… it bleeds away your vitality. Do not get stuck in the cycle of worry, meditate more on how you will express yourself, rather than how you will sustain yourself. All the possibilities you’ve been juggling will gently unfold without any need for force.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Knight of Cups
April is an invitation for you to explore your inner world, your softer side. Say hello to your emotions for a change. Don’t hide from them, don’t solider on, trying to man handle your feelings. You have nothing to prove right now. Be sad, be happy, be outrageous. Let your words, and feelings flow from you. Just like the planet earth, you have a deep well of beautiful water flowing under the surface… what is this lifeblood swirling inside of you? Have you taken the time to say hello? Let your affirmation moving forward be, “Thank you.”
Libra September 23-October 22
2 of Cups
There is a strange, and unsettling energy in the air. Something is calling you to look closer at the things you are binding yourself to. This can be love, work, addiction, and relationships. This isn’t to say any of these things are innately bad, but it begs you to answer the question… are you feeding your spirit? New energy is cycling in, and with it comes a new reality. Be brave enough to let go of the worn-out, you have no need to solve the riddles of the past, and accept the new!
Scorpio October 23-November 21
6 of Cups
You have hinged your next steps on the patterns of past failures. Learn from your history, but do not be bound to it. Be fluid. Be open. Be receptive. Only when you tap into your heart center, and let yourself pour out into the world will you find the things you seek. The answers truly lie before you in the unknown, not in uncovering retraced footsteps of dusty maps. Push yourself a little more, Scorpio… you will be better of for it.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
8 of Wands
Sagittarius, you are being methodical, calculating plans, and steps forward. Remember that the path ahead isn’t a straight and narrow one. It can wind, bend, turn, and even fall off all together. Look for alternate routes… tunnel vision will be the bane of you. There is wisdom in looking for the footsteps of those before you. Maybe not to follow them, but to avoid them.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
4 of Swords
You are stuck in cage of mental blocks. Sometimes we bonder one thought too long for answers, never realizing that the apposing thought is actually the key to the question. Do not give in to anguish, and mental fatigue. This is a self-imposed reality. You can cut away the grime, and the baggage. Take a time out. Don’t make excuses just start making plans. Everything else can wait as you regain your sanity.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Justice (A repeat from last month!)
Where is your composure? Do you need to be composed at all? These are questions to ask yourself. Cling not to the answer, instead ruminate on the question. There is so much power, and wisdom in contemplating the unknown, and breathing in possibility. Your inner world is seeking expression in the outer world. The more you deny your spirit, the more distorted your reality becomes. Speak out. Say what you need to say. Push forward. Ask questions. Probe and prompt the darkness. You’ll find in the falling from grace, you will gain wings!
Pisces February 19-March 20
You are dancing in the integration of duality. Dark and light. Good and bad. Male and female. You’ll find a better vantage point when you turn yourself upside down, and sideways. The end of one thing heralds the beginning of another. Pisces let your emotions fertilize the bones of the past, of loss, and goodbyes… so that seeds can germinate and take root. New things are blooming, even in the wake of your self-described wasteland.
