April 2016 Tarot Forecast
As we move into spring in full swing this April the after effects of a mad March will continue to trickle in. It’s a high energy month again so brace yourselves! Look out for the next instalment of the Blood Full Moon/ Lunar eclipse as well this April 15th. Passions will ring high in the first week. Things might feel a bit confusing when it comes to choices. The advice is to go with what you are drawn to the most. You won’t go wrong even though that option may not tick all your boxes at the time, it doesn’t matter. In time, you will thank yourself for listening to your heart. Challenges are what stimulates the intellect so take them up as they come along in the second week. Don’t sit on things and hope for them to pass. Make a decision and stay firm, this will only be for your own personal growth. There will be plenty of opportunities as you shall see this April for self-improvement. It might be hard to make out at first what all the happenings in April will be leading to. There is structure that is being put in place within your family or your own self-development path. If you are in the family way, then there might be plans to grow your family. If not you will find yourself working on yourself to be emotionally more mature. In the final week of April, it’s alright to accept help from someone else who is in possession of more knowledge than you on a particular subject. It’s all part of growing as an individual. But how much do you actually take? That is a balance that you will learn to work out. Don’t let your pride and arrogance get the better of you here or you will certainly lose this golden opportunity to learn and grow. Overall, it’s a month full of all sorts of off the beaten path alley ways. Things will feel like a maze at times. But just go with it. The jigsaw will reveal itself in the months to come!
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You seem to be in the mood for some emotional declutter this April after all it is the Lunar eclipse as well. You have allowed yourself to wallow in self-pity far too long. It’s time to sit up and make the month as productive as possible. You begin with organising things at home. Delegation will help to free up time so it can be spent with each other instead of struggling to finish nitty gritty tasks. There is a lot of soul-searching this month as you question yourself about your priorities in life. You work through that list of priorities rigorously as you don’t really want to miss out on opportunities anymore. By the end of the month, you seem ready to take on the world with a renewed sense of determination to make things work.
Aries have had it rather hard going be it with relationships, emotions, health, finances or even finding that career calling. Things have been all very up in the air for sometime now. The dust will somewhat settle this coming year ahead and clarity will emerge slowly but surely. The first quarter is a clear indication of things on the upturn for you beginning with some good news in terms of finances, business, career or even your health. To drive this positivity along you realise it’s important to play a part in creating opportunities for yourself. The universe may present to you doors but it’s up to you to open them and make the most of them. You need to work on that fighting spirit that you lost after getting tired out from non-action for so long. The battle to continually convince yourself that things are on the mend continues in the second quarter. It is a time for new learning and discoveries. It’s entirely up to you to put into motion what you have picked up. Trying to juggle and multi-task will only serve as a distraction. You need to create a focus in order to see through your plans. Your hard work and determination does pay off by the third quarter. What you have been seeking materialises. However, the notion that trying to stretch yourself isn’t going to work out drives home further. So keep your plans lean and focused to maintain the momentum of success. Approaching the year end, it will feel like the year has taught you lots about keeping structure and laying foundations. This cannot be more emphasised if you wish to see your plans materialise. Rome was never built in a day and this message is will be etched in your psyche. So carry on you must! Trusting yourself has never been so important and this has certainly helped you to regain your self-confidence. Moving forward, you will be more trusting of your instincts, keep focused and will always be reinventing yourself. It will be out with the old and in with the new to keep this cycle of success treading along!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
It’s choices, choices and choices this month! You are rather lucky in the sense that not everybody gets that many good choices all at the same time. It is a test of how you apply your decision making process in order to pick the best option for yourself. Practice calm and work through an eliminating process to arrive at your destination this month. Don’t try taking on more than you can handle. As in taking on more than one option at a time. Doing so could result in you losing all the available options and having to start right at the bottom again. So don’t ruin things for yourself this month!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
It is a very self-reflective April ahead. The events of the past month seem to have come full circle and you feel a sense of completion to what you had set out to achieve. Alot has happened and you feel in all those months you haven’t had the chance to think about why things have happened they have they have and what was it that was meant to be learnt from the experience. This month, you pick up another new lesson which is perfecting the art of giving and receiving. Not only did you learn but you choose to impart some of your wisdom to those around you. This exchange leads to building a different perspective to your life. A very enriching month it will be for you Gemini in terms of self-improvement so take this in while you can.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
If you are going to carry on the path that you are in now then you are never really going to grow and learn. In order to improve, you will need to ditch the old ways and familiar people and open your horizons to different and more creative ways of doing things. Speak and mingle with people who aren’t your usual crowd. Placing yourself in unfamiliar territory and situations seem to be the only way to move forward with things. Daunting as it sounds but you really need to throw yourself in the deep end if you wish to take that step to radically change things in your life.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Your spirit feels rather low this month Leo. You feel weighed down and the daily grind is just getting to you and making you more unhappy with each passing day. Carry on as you are and you will only spiral further into depression. It’s the perfect month to reignite your passion. Find what is it that will drive you. Or if you already know this then start taking some action to get your wheels in motion. It’s not going to be a slight tweak to something but it’s going to be a major engine overhaul. You have to stand out and reposition yourself or else you will just drown in a sea of everyone trying to be something.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your positivity from the previous month flows into April. You have all the tools and ingredients before you to pursue that dream. It is a very positive month to venture into business. The key however is to be very clear and precise with your workflow plan. You have to be clear right from the beginning. It can’t be i’ll dabble in this as well as a safety net in case Plan A fails. If you feel that way about Plan A then don’t get yourself into anything. Only unwavering confidence will see you through to success. So be firm and crystal clear and everything should go according to plan.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You have to take charge this month. A decision has to be made and by you sitting on this and delaying things you are just going to make things harder for yourself. It’s a damned if you and damned if you don’t situation this April. The options before you seem equally good and tempting. But in order to make things work you need to stay focused and hence can only pick one option. It’s all in your hands this month. The sooner you decide the sooner you can overthrow the old and embrace the new in life.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
The message this month is a very holistic and healing one. There might have been people or things that have hurt in you in the past. There is realisation that life is indeed fragile and it would not harm to give and take a little. It actually makes our journey much more easier and happier. You decide letting go of any grudges or feelings of upset. It lifts off a heavy burden off your chest and your spirit never felt lighter. Do not be surprised if this emotional healing leads to some improvements in your physical well-being! Whatever you choose to let go off this April was the very thing that was weighing your health down as well.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your instincts will be guiding you this month to seek out a passion. It could be anything from a relationship, a career change, a pet or even a hobby. It’s all basically a test of listening to your own inner guidance. You have a strong wish to create something out of nothing for yourself and you are not going to waste anytime this month. You would like to feel a surge of excitement for something or someone which you feel drawn to and you wish to lose yourself in it as one would when in love. There is no stopping this motivation this April.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You have grown tired of doing things the ‘right’ way. You feel like you have tried and tested it. And you don’t feel it’s really for you. Usually you aren’t the sort to throw caution to the wind. But you’d like to find out what it feels like to do just that. You adopt a child-like energy and eagerness to tread into the unknown. As exciting as this time might be, you will still need your head to be screwed on properly. So don’t stick your finger in too many pies otherwise you might find all that abundant energy dissipating without achieving anything by the time April is over.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarians are naturally quite a curious bunch. It is this that spurs that creativity in life. This April will be a perfect reflection of that. You are getting weary of the familiar. It’s just not doing it for you anymore. Things have become mundane to a point of stagnation. You wish to put an end to this and hence begin a journey of taking a leap into the unfamiliar. This might be taking up a job offer you never thought you would, strike an unusual business deal or simply taking that intrepid holiday to reignite those creative juices. It’s a quest to reawaken what you feel was left behind along your journey this month.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
A very mentally stimulating time lies ahead this April for the very intellectual Pisces. You don’t really like sitting around and not achieving much. Taking things easy is easier said than done for you. So it’s time to pick up the speed this month and indulge in what stimulates and excites you. You are like a child at Christmas when you discover what excites you. But don’t get ahead of yourself and try to fill shoes that are bigger than yours. As capable as you think you are, volunteering for something that you aren’t really ready for would not reflect very well on that CV. So reach for what is within your means and you will more likely to blossom.
