April 2018 Tarot Forecast
We say goodbye to an emotionally charged March to be greeted by Mercury Retrograde as we enter April – for the first two weeks. Strangely so, the emotions continue to linger on in the first week of April but in a more positive way. It’s good news for singletons as they seem to welcome a new relationship into their lives. If you have been on the pursuit, expect a relationship to blossom. For those in relationships, expect things to move up a notch. You either plan to expand your brood or find your relationship deepening and strengthening. Being a retrograde month, the key is take the least amount of action and plan as much as possible. If you are hoping to improve your financial standing in the second week, take your time to research, being detailed and meticulous will guarantee the results. As soon as the clutches of Mercury Retrograde are released, things speed up in the department of career and work. In the third week, you may realise that going full steam ahead will be a careless way of achieving your career goals. So be level headed when it comes to work scenarios and apply objectivity in any given situation to avoid rubbing colleagues the wrong way. The events of the third week will leave you juggling ideas of how you can balance life’s demands, your profession and loved ones. You may entertain the possibility of going independent or come up with a plan that allows for better time management. Enjoy Mercury Retrograde’s pause this month! Take the time to plan well!
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s a month where you put things right when it comes to your relationship with your finances. The key is to spread your spending. Prioritising your needs over your wants would be a good start. Be meticulous in your financial planning. There is really no special recipe to this. It’s all going to be common sense and probably advice that you have heard before but chose to ignore. Only by taking these tried and tested steps do you set things right for yourself financially. Not only will you enjoy a sense of freedom as energy is released from all that worrying; but you will discover abundant opportunities leading to your prosperity.
Year Ahead (April 2018 – March 2019)
In the year ahead, your focus seems very much about creating a fulfilling and balanced life in every way possible. The emphasis is on how you manage family life or your relationship with your partner in the first quarter. Expectations should be maintained to a realistic level. If you are working to achieve calm after a storm with your relationship, don’t expect things to heal overnight. Take a day at a time; work towards things in an emotionally balanced manner. It’s time to add a twist to the direction your life is taking in the second quarter. The want to do things differently is part of a self-awakening where perhaps a new activity, career, hobby, study or even travel is needed to inspire a new direction in life. It is extremely important that you adhere to this calling to get out of your rut. Sacrifices may be inevitable if you are to begin laying the foundation for a new direction to achieve your life purpose in the third quarter. Your loving relationships will take first place and making sure that they are kept happy and comfortable will make you extremely happy and fulfilled. So if you have to lose something for a long-term gain then you are willing to take that plunge. All that hard work of overcoming challenges does pay off in the final quarter where all the pieces come together to make a complete picture. All along, you have trusted your instincts despite how tough and dark things got but you never gave up on listening and trusting yourself and it has all paid off very well indeed!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You are feeling extremely determined this month to make your dreams come true; by starting a new career, business venture, a hobby or even pursuing a new skill or study which leads you to feeling fulfilled. It does not seem like an ordinary pursuit, but something which seems well thought out and allows you to express yourself creatively. Your state of being by the end of the month will be that of a person who feels like they have had all their wishes granted.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
A fantastic month awaits Gemini this April! Your grand scheme rolls out just the way you imagined it to be. You have reflected on your past and understood all the mistakes and won’t be repeating them again. Your heightened awareness and maturity clears your vision making the path to success more easier then it has ever been. You will experience completion as everything comes together nicely; an improved career, increase in financial reserves, a new home or even a long-term commitment to a relationship.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It’s relationship alert this April! Communication seems the solution for feeling heavily disappointed to an extent of feeling betrayed. But the good thing to come out of all of this is a test of your inner strength and emotional maturity. It’s easier to walk away but to face the music takes a lot and the result will be rewarding. Expect a challenging month ahead while you try to stay afloat and move past your ‘victim’ attitude.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Tread where you never dared to before is the theme of the month. You will be doing things out of your comfort zone by exploring ideas that you never entertained before. These explorations are being taken as a long-term view of where you would like to see yourself several years from now. You might consider taking up some new study or skill to equip yourself for your radical future ahead. Imagine monetising a hobby where it would feel like you never have to work a day in your life! So get on your thinking caps and start thinking out of the box this April!
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You aren’t about to give up on achieving your goals this month. Obstacles do not deter you from being focused and determined to reach your end destination of having a more comfortable financial position in your life. It is a month where you find yourself manifesting your dreams. Despite all the difficulties you have faced in your past, you feel extremely blessed to be on this journey. There is a sense of renewed hope and faith and you seem to move forward with courage, calm and love this April.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
This month the spotlight is on your long-term plans. With your creative urge at its peak, you realise the potential for growth with your existing plans, so it’s time to start laying the foundation.The key is to cast your net further awide to unfamiliar territory. Expand on your current plans by seeking personal growth in the form of travel, study or learning or even entrepreneurship. Coupling your raw enthusiasm with well-informed decision making will be your secret ingredient for a successful future.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Things come full circle at last! You have worked very hard and tackled all challenges head on to get here. Your confidence is soaring and so it’s time to finally celebrate. Use this opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends this month. A sense of nostalgia may creep in this month; by catching up with childhood friends, reminiscing about your childhood days or perhaps visiting a place from your childhood – all in the name of bringing an old familiar joy.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You try to make things right with your loved ones this April. You have noticed attention wavering from people that have shown their care and love towards you because they haven’t felt the same outpouring back from you. This has made you sit up and pay attention to how you have been treating everyone. Your life has been centred around chasing your career and money which have resulted in you hurting and upsetting those close to you. A complete life is one where you have the support of people that love you and you reciprocate that to ensure harmony and happiness in your life. What is all that money for if you haven’t got anyone to share it with at the end of the day?
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
If you have been working towards achieving fulfilment in your career or business venture, it looks like this is the month where everything comes together. Working because it fuels your passion and not because of a means to an end naturally leads you to a healthy financial position. When monetary success because secondary to achieving inner satisfaction and fulfilment, money will follow! And you will clearly demonstrate that this April. You reach a very calm place in your life as you discover the key to your success. This newfound enthusiasm spurs you on to think about your next project
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It is not a particularly good start to the month of April for Aquarius. Out of nowhere, you find yourself in a midst of a very stressful conflict with family or your partner. Unexpected words and views are exchanged. There was no clue or any inkling that unhappy feelings had been brewing. Hearing out everyone’s perspective seems to be the way forward to resolve this conflict. Things do heal eventually. A situation that seemed beyond repair suddenly turns over and harmonious relationships are reinstated again.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There is an important lesson to be learnt this month about your relationship with money. You may have had a lack of money in your past which has driven you to increase your monetary wealth. And, you have successfully done so. So much so, that it has led you to develop an attitude of greed and the need to measure your success with money. Disappointment does follow when you fail to acknowledge the value of intangible ways of measuring your success. A transformation of your relationship with money follows as soon as you realise this. So good luck with learning your lesson successfully.
