March 21 to April 20
Tarot cards for Aries for April: Ace of Swords, Three of Wands, Three of Coins
Meaning: Let others prove your worth
I don’t know why but you’ve been telling yourself tales about yourself and downplaying your strengths and talents. It’s a brand of insecurity that is self-inflicted, and no one would believe how harshly you talk to yourself – it’s so undeserved. The Ace of Swords asks you to re-evaluate the truths you tell yourself, about yourself.
The Three of Coins reassures you that you’re thought highly of, respected, and loved. People want the best for you and are ready to help, make an offer, promote you, and endorse you. Just say the word, Aries, and let all of this goodwill in.
The Three of Wands shows you will receive ample, but fast-moving, opportunities to prove this to yourself this April, and you should let it all flow. Change that inner voice. You have good reason to feel proud and confident so let that light shine brightly.

Tarot cards for Taurus for April: Two of Cups, Page of Cups, Nine of Cups
Meaning: Love and creativity
A trio of beautiful, imaginative and dare I say, romantic Cups cards for you this month, Taurus, so expect love and creativity to flow all around you.
The Two of Cups is a love card, signalling passion and romance, chemistry and mutual adoration. Revel in your closest bonds and do things together.
The Page of Cups is about travel, creativity, wonderment, and invites you to let your artistic side (you have a strong one…) flourish. Take up a project or class or activity. Express yourself creatively.
The Nine of Cups is a beautiful cosmic pass from the Universe to make a dream come true. Spend it wisely! Clarify your most heartfelt wish and make an overt move in its direction. Things will start to happen fast.

May 22 to June 21
Tarot cards for Gemini for April: Knight of Coins, Queen of Cups, Four of Swords
Meaning: Relaxation is vital
You often have your very best ideas (and you have plenty of them) when you’re relaxed, not trying, not even looking at the very thing you’re trying to have an idea about.
So, do that now. The Four of Swords tells you to chill, stop trying, stop overworking at this. The Queen of Cups tells you to indulge in a hefty dose of self love and care.
Meditate, listen to beautiful music or guided meditations, take long walks in the woods, collect flowers and pebbles and make a spring centre piece, cook from scratch and eat well, drink water, stretch, sleep deeply, dream lucidly, nap, swim.
The Knight of Coins shows that all of this ‘indulgence’ is in fact anything but. It’s practical, and proven, means of accessing your sub conscious, where the best gems live. You are actively ideating and preparing to create something amazing.

June 22 to July 23
Tarot cards for Cancer for April: Page of Coins, Six of Wands, Temperance
Meaning: Self-awareness changes everything
A game-changing life lesson awaits you this April, Cancer, and it will rebalance and refocus you on what’s most important now, and what you can actively do about it.
The Page of Coins is the student of the tarot and, teamed with Temperance, reveals a personal insight or wisdom will emerge for you this month about your work, home, health, or money. It’s something you can act upon, it’s got traction, it’s powerful, it’s frankly life changing. Heed the message.
The Six of Wands reveals that, if you follow your own good advice, you will be feeling fantastic within around six weeks. A commitment now will yield positive benefits shortly, and for the longer term.
This is you winning, being your best self, evolving into the person who lives the life you currently dream of. It starts right here.

July 24 to August 23
Tarot cards for Leo for April: Strength, Seven of Swords, Seven of Cups
Meaning: Be protective
Strength is your star sign’s personal card, representing the strength of all Leos. Your confidence, courage and leadership ability are second to none, and this card’s presence here suggests April will bring both challenge and reward as a result of your personality. Your innate traits will be tested and proven.
The Seven of Swords shows you’re embroiled in a shady situation or relationship, and you need to be more guarded and shrewd. Don’t be so open or vulnerable, protect your interests, withhold, retreat, play it super safe. People can be jealous, petty, spiteful and devious.
The Seven of Cups asks you to use your imagination to do the mental gymnastics of projecting yourself into the shoes of the other people involved in this situation.
By understanding their perspective and motivation you might see yourself differently, understand how this has gotten to this stage, and how you can resolve it (even if it means walking away altogether, which it might).

August 24 to September 23
Tarot cards for Virgo for April: The Devil, The Chariot, The World
Meaning: Broaden your horizons
April is going to be a barn-stormer, as they say! A trio of major arcana cards means powerful cosmic forces are afoot, and change lies ahead, and life is going to feel different.
The Chariot and The World both represent literal travel, movement, journeys, location change – all for the better and all to help you get ahead, progress, broaden your horizons, find your niche, pursue a heartfelt goal. Consider you place in life right now and whether change is needed.
The Devil shows this whole challenge has the potential to help you banish a bad habit or self-limiting belief for good. You have a tendency to be cautious, even fearful, of change, but change is the only constant in life and, by making a bold leap, you might overcome much of this hidden fear. Be bold.

September 24 to October 23
Tarot cards for Libra for April: Seven of Wands, The Hermit, King of Cups
Meaning: Overcome a conflict with charm
A competitive and challenging situation can be overcome, with you as the victor, if you focus on winning over their hearts and mind. Use your famous diplomacy and charm.
The Seven of Wands shows you at odds with someone or something, and feeling a little bruised by the encounters involved. You’re standing your ground, but conflict is not your thing.
The Hermit sees you retreating a little, rethinking the game plan, wondering how you can handle this better.
The King of Cups has the answer. Win over their hearts and minds. Kill them with kindness. Show the emotional depth and maturity you possess. Persuade vs argue. Listen vs talk. Find places you agree and work within that space. Charm. Flatter. Be the top diplomat of tact that you naturally are.

October 24 to November 22
Tarot cards for Scorpio for April: The Moon, Ten of Cups, The Emperor
Meaning: Understanding control
Secrets and control. They are two recurring themes in your life and both will have resonance for you this April.
The Moon shows you don’t know what you need to know just yet, but you soon will. Be vigilant, inquisitive, searching and determined. Don’t accept what’s said at absolute face value – ask more questions, dig deeper, analyse.
The Emperor reveals this is about the theme of control. It might be you who’s being controlling, it might be someone close to you, it might be you helping out a friend or colleague or family member in a tough spot.
The Ten of Cups shows that love, affection and even passion are playing a part here. So this could be linked to a romantic relationship, or an extremely close one.
Hatred is the embers of great affection. Control is bred by insecurity. Power dynamics can get skewed when our emotions are heightened, so try to stay calm and collected. Work with the facts. Know your values and standards. Be kind but firm.

November 23 to December 21
Tarot cards for Sagittarius for April: The Sun, Queen of Coins, Four of Coins
Meaning: Good days are ahead
Whatever sadness, boredom, or frustration you’ve been experiencing recently, please know it’s coming to an end very soon with the arrival of the positive, joyous Sun card. Good times are not far away, please believe it, and have confidence that you deserve it.
The Four of Coins shows the doldrums have been hovering over you. You’ve felt thwarted, stalled, stuck in a rut, and this is a horrible sensation for a freedom-loving Sagittarius. You can’t bear having your metaphorical wings clipped.
The Queen of Coins asks you to make the first step away from the rut. Push out of your comfort zone and do something positive, life-affirming and tangible. This could be linked to your health, money, home or work.
Make a change, and this will trigger a chain-reaction of good opportunity and fortune. Don’t delay, get past this cloudy spell.

December 22 to January 21
Tarot cards for Capricorn for April: Eight of Wands, The High Priestess, Eight of Coins
Meaning: Open up
You’re partway through a long term and demanding project, ambition or role, and the Eight of Coins sees you feeling wearied but determined to get this done, completed, and ticked off the list.
Don’t give up! The rewards will be worth it.
The High Priestess asks you to ask yourself what you need right now, what will make this easier, what will help you carry on at pace, what are you missing or needing.
Deep down, you know there’s something you lack but you are trying to bravely soldier on. Stop, pause, think.
The Eight of Wands shows this could be linked to communication, to expressing yourself, to asking for help, for promoting your cause, for putting yourself in the way of opportunity.
You can be closed off when you’re busy or focused, and actually, you need to open up and let others in. They can help.

January 22 to February 19
Tarot cards for Aquarius for April: Four of Cups, Nine of Coins, Death
Meaning: Truthful goals
You’ve been reluctant to face this truth but you’ve fallen out of love with something you had banked on, felt was a long term thing in your life, or once was a priority. The Four of Cups shows you’ve lost sight of why this mattered so much. Face this feeling.
Death reveals transformation is the end game of this honesty. You need to adjust your ambitions and actions, realign with a goal that is inspiring, that leads you to better places. What you once thought was ‘it’… is not. And that’s okay. You can adjust. Find a new inspiration.
The Nine of Coins shows this is leading to a 9-10 year project of commitment, change and progress. You’re laying new foundations on which you can build a dream life. Be honest about what you truly want and you can work on getting it.

February 20 to March 20
Tarot cards for Pisces for April: Ten of Swords, Six of Swords, The Hanged Man
Meaning: Break free
The Hanged Man shows you have felt trapped or stalled by a situation that has ground you down a little, been terribly frustrating, and you just wish it would end or something would change. Your wish is going to come true, change is afoot.
The Ten and Six of Swords combine forces to literally demand that you leave whatever it is, sever ties, move on, end it, depart, draw a line.
Both cards are about freeing yourself from a role, relationship or situation that has gotten difficult, draining or even toxic.
They both promise that you’ll feel relieved, empowered, and liberated as soon as you make this move. It’s time.
Be free. Walk away. Save yourself. You will immediately feel the healing and rejuvenating process begin.
