A Tarot Reader Predicts What Each Zodiac Sign Should Expect This April

Aries

Your card: The Tower

This month might feel a little precarious for you, Aries—and when you least expect it, you might find the walls are falling down around you. It really might feel like the end of everything to you—and in some ways, it will be. The Tower is all about something breaking down completely, often leaving you feeling like you’re stuck in the rubble. The good news? After the breakdown comes the chance to rebuild, often making way for a better situation in the long run. The universe is ridding you of the things that no longer serve you and bringing you back to the right path. It’s often not a pleasant feeling in the moment, but it’s something you’ll likely look back on and realize needed to happen for you to get to the place in life you actually wanted to be.

Taurus

Your card: The Hanged Man, reversed

Expect to feel a little stuck this month, Taurus. You may find your plans coming to a halt, your ideas bound up in a creative block, your contacts leaving you on read. It’s frustrating, maddening even—but perhaps it is necessary. The Hanged Man in reverse is telling you that it’s time to pause, step back, and take a beat to breathe. You are so stubbornly persistent, my little bull, and while that’s admirable, it also tends to be your downfall in situations like this. Let go of your need to impress others (or yourself) and do what your brain and body need for you to do in this moment. Once you’ve taken the time you need, the world will start flowing around you again—but for now, just enjoy the moment of peace.

Gemini

Your card: Page of Swords

As the great communicator of the zodiac, it’s fitting that your card this month is Page of Swords, Gemini. This card is all about communication—about news coming your way, about new ideas rising to the surface, about plans finally forming. It could mean you’ll be exploring a new way of thinking, or maybe just that you’re welcoming change and moving forward with something new. Whatever it is, you’ll likely feel energized and alive in April—your optimal state, as I’m sure you’ll agree. Keep your eyes peeled for new opportunities and continue to be the curious, openminded innovator that you are. It will all work out for you in the end.

Cancer

Your card: Ten of Wands, reversed

Have you been feeling overwhelmed lately, Cancer? The Ten of Wands in reverse suggests that you likely are. Maybe you’re taking on more than you can carry or bottling up your emotions; maybe you simply feel like there is more going on than you can possibly handle alone. I hope you know, though, that you aren’t alone. Don’t be afraid to reach out for help or confide in those who you trust and who love you. Because while this card signifies feeling overwhelmed, it’s also a sign that you’ll find release soon—so allow yourself to step back from situations that are too much, let go of expectations that are only hurting you, and give yourself compassion for simply being human. The storm will pass and you will still be standing tall.

Leo

Your card: The Moon

April is a time for looking inward, Leo. Something is going on under the surface—but what? That’s a question you’ll have to ask yourself and search long and hard for the answer. You may feel more anxiety than usual, or maybe you find yourself struggling to push back memories or emotions you’d rather repress. Or, deep down, you might just feel like you aren’t sure what you should do—or even what you want. Don’t let all these uncertainties drown you. The Moon signifies a great time to meditate and look deep within your soul, to connect with your intuition and the deep spiritual knowledge of your ancestors. What you find may be a turning point in your life.

Virgo

Your card: Queen of Swords, reversed

Have your emotions been getting the best of you, Virgo? Before you answer that question, you may want to think deeply about your responses and reactions within the past few weeks. You’re a logical person, but that doesn’t mean you’re immune to emotional oversights. This is a sign that it’s time to step back and look at your situation objectively. Is it time for you to act more assertively? More compassionately? More deliberately? What advice would you give your friends if they were in the same situation? Once you separate your own emotions from the equation, it’ll be easier to decide where to go from here—and knowing you, you’ll know exactly what to do.

Libra

Your card: Queen of Pentacles

This month, you’re absolutely thriving, Libra. You’re in a solid place in your life, both financially and emotionally, which means you have the means to put some well-deserved energy into yourself and your loved ones. You may find yourself in a caretaker position this month, but not necessarily in a bad way—you simply have the means to nurture those around you and will likely be happy to do so. It’s best to not have a scarcity mindset this month—remember that you are abundant, and when you’re able to give to others, the effort will oftentimes be returned. Just make sure to save a little bit of that generosity for yourself—you deserve to take care of yourself, too!

Scorpio

Your card: Four of Swords, reversed

April will be a reserved month for you, Scorpio—or, at least, it should be. You’ve been giving too much of your energy to things that are not nurturing you, and it’s time for you to step back and recharge. You may even want to overdo it, but I promise you, continuing to push yourself when you’re on the brink of exhaustion will only hurt in the long run. Give yourself plenty of time to meditate, journal, or just simply rest in April. You have plenty of time to run wild and push yourself to the limit, but for now, make friends with the silence and reacquaint yourself with your own company. If you can manage to that, April will be the restorative break you so desperately need.

Sagittarius

Your card: Three of Cups

I hope you like a good party, Sagittarius, because April is all about good times and good vibes. (Just kidding—I know you like a good party.) Expect celebrations, family gatherings, or friendship reunions (or maybe even all three). Whatever this month brings, expect it to come with a lot of warm, fuzzy feelings and a deep feeling of love and belonging. You have finally found your place, or your people, or the thing that truly makes you happy—whatever it is, this month is about letting yourself truly enjoy it. Happy spring!

Capricorn

Your card: Nine of Swords, reversed

You’ve been going through a tough time lately, Capricorn, haven’t you? This month, you may find yourself more anxious than usual—or, at worst, even paralyzed by your own fear. Not all of these worries are grounded in reality, but that doesn’t make them any less difficult to process. You have a tendency to bottle up your emotions and put on a brave front, but this is the time for you to let down your walls and open up to those you trust and love. The Nine of Swords in reverse is asking you to release your fears and self-doubt—but to do that, you have to be honest about them to yourself and to others. Once you put a name to what you’re feeling, you’ll be able to face it head-on—and knowing you, you’ll certainly prevail.

Aquarius

Your card: Ace of Swords

With April comes a breakthrough for you, Aquarius. If you’ve been struggling with something or have felt mentally murky about a situation (or in general), you’ll finally find the clarity you’ve needed. This often comes in the form of a lightbulb moment that seemingly comes out of nowhere; be open to new ideas and embrace whatever changes you’ll have to make along the way. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, necessarily, but I am saying it’s going to be worth it. The good news? The ace of swords is often a lucky sign, so trust the process and know that where the universe is taking you now is the place you want to be.

Pisces

Your card: Six of Wands, reversed

You may find yourself falling prey to self-doubt this month, Pisces—more than usual, that is. You may struggle to find the motivation you need or may lack the confidence necessary to get what you want. Answer me this, little fish: Why are you so hard on yourself? You are so compassionate and encouraging with others, but you tend to fall short in this category when it comes to yourself. Treat yourself as if you’re your own friend, and if that doesn’t work, turn to the ones who love you to give you that little extra boost of confidence. But remember: success often starts with your attitude and your outlook—if you believe you can do something, you’re much more likely to reach your goals. And that’s something no one else can give you.
