April 2023 Star Gazings
FIRE SIGNS 🔥
🐏 ARIES (March 20 - April 19)
The Emperor: Aries, you got your own major arcana card during YOUR season! That's some majorly feisty and ambitious energy flowing to and through you. The question now is: Are you going to use this energy to make bold, audacious moves, or are you going to let fear fizzle your flame? Your clarifier card is the Seven of Swords, so there's some deception or imposter syndrome coming in that you need to keep at bay. Remember, if you wait until you *think* you're 100% prepared to take the leap, then you'll be waiting a lifetime... maybe more! Choose this time right here and now to face your fears and call in what's truly yours. It's time to choose logic and reason over fear and disconnection. You are in control of your life, so step up and be the authoritative figure in your life. Recognize when your ego is trying to pull you back down and keep you "safe." Now not the time to play it safe... it's time to go big or go home!
🦁 LEO (July 22 - Aug 22)
Nine of Wands: Your defenses are up, but why? You've already won the battle, so it's time to lay down your weapons and the burdens associated. You see that these types of battles are too exhausting to keep fighting over and over, so choose to keep the drama to a minimum this month. Your clarifier card are The Devil (rx) and the Two of Swords (rx), which is a clear message that YOU and you alone need to make the decision to untether yourself from the ties that bind you to the past and keep you repeating patterns that simply do not allow you to progress forward in life. When are you going to realize that you need to do for yourself what you do for others? Make the decision today that you're putting yourself and your needs first, starting today! This isn't selfish, this is self-full. Taking care of you first means that you can show up in the world more centered, more authentically, more fully, instead of trying to shine to impress others. Start living for you. Life's too short to be living someone else's dream.
🏹 SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 20)
Four of Pentacles (rx): It's time to really change your relationship with money, my love. For some reason this Four of Pentacles coming out in reverse is making me feel shameful or regretful. If you've been teetering the line of living within your means and overdoing it, remember it's not too late to make positive change. Be mindful not to fall into scarcity mindset because that only welcomes in more shame, guilt, and fear. Use this month to assess your spending habits and make small, incremental changes that will allow you to cut back on life's luxuries so that you can catch up with your finances. Your clarifier card is Justice in reverse which asks you to really balance the scales and start living life in integrity with your truth. This is your chance to not let history repeat itself. You've got this!
EARTH SIGNS 🌎
🐂 TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
Two of Swords (rx): It looks like you are at a bit of a crossroads right now with a decision you need to make and it feels very much like "should I stay or should I go?" Be mindful not to let feelings of powerlessness seep in right now, no matter how uncertain or blinded you feel about this decision. Now's the time to really get centered in what you want long term, but first you must really get honest with yourself about how you need to shift your mind mentally before you can make this decision. Your clarifier cards are The Emperor reversed and the Six of Swords reversed, so that tells me you're feeling really stripped of your power in making this decision for some reason. The way you bring order to the chaos is by taking a step back and feeling into what you want for yourself in the next three months onward. Are you happy with the way things are going or are you ready to move on to stiller waters mentally and emotionally? Call back your power so that you can recenter and make a sound decision from a place of YOUR truth and discernment. You are in control here, don't forget that.
🌾 VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
10 of Swords (rx): Oh, Virgo... I feel you. I, too, am a Virgo so I'm feeling this energy deeply! It's time to close out this cycle of feeling like things just aren't working out and like all the work/action we've been doing isn't paying off. Something greater is on its way and it's just around the corner, but if you give up now then you'll never know. Like the saying goes, "Everything you've ever wanted is sitting on the other side of fear." Your clarifier cards are Nine of Swords reversed and The Chariot reversed. These two cards coming out together show that this cycle is destined to come to a close but you have to know and trust that things are working out for you, not against you. Things are happening behind the scenes in the Universe that you're not meant to know about, because you have The Star card at the bottom of the deck, too! You're still on the right path, so dig deep and really ground in your truth. What you want wants you... you just have to have the patience and determination to close out this current cycle and let the necessary wisdom and healing come through in their own timing. Trust, dear Virgo. TRUST!
🐐 CAPRICORN (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
Four of Swords (rx): It is time to REST, dear Capricorn. You need a break and the Universe is calling you out on it! Your clarifier card is the Nine of Pentacles. This card is a reminder that what you're trying to manifest is already yours, but you are slowly but surely deviating from your truth by not taking care of yourself first and foremost. It's okay to take a break. It's okay to take care of you. Life isn't going to pass you by because you took time out to rest and recuperate. At the bottom of the deck you have The Universe (or World) card, yet another reminder to stop and smell the roses. There's something you're not seeing right now that will come through when you slow things down and take a break from the "noise."
AIR SIGNS 🌬
👯♀️ GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
Two of Wands (rx): Oooh, love this message for you. How you find your strength is by thinking big-picture, long term. You're too caught up in the details and not seeing the forest for the trees. Take a step back and allow yourself to dream BIGGER! Your clarifier card is Strength and you have The Devil reversed at the bottom of the deck, so there's a clear indication that you're keeping yourself trapped by thinking too small for your big dreams. It's time to release the limiting mindset and step into something that is more conducive for expansion and growth. It might feel scary to leave the comfort zone of what you've always known, but you also know you're meant for more and you can't actualize that if you stay put. Go big or go home, Gemini. Use this month to stretch your edges and expand your comfort zone farther out.
⚖️ LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
The Star: Libra! Not only did you get the Star card, but you also have three other major arcana to clarify your message! You got Temperance reversed, The Universe/World, and Judgement. Holy moly, you are making some major shifts this month that require you to use the past as your mirror for how you want to grow in this next evolution of yourself. The Star card points to you being on a path that's aligned with your truth and you should be feeling a sense of hope being restored. Big things are ahead, so use the lessons of the past to navigate the way forward. I also feel like The Universe/World card is asking you to celebrate your wins and losses thus far because they all served to make you wise and more prepared for what's to come. You're going to need to be super tenacious and resilient right now, as the Nine of Wands is at the bottom of the deck. This is a reminder that you have all you need to see the way through, so don't give up until you've reached the finish line! Fight for what you want in life, because it wants you too.
🏺AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 17)
Death (rx): Oh wow, not only did you get Death reversed, but your clarifier cards are Six of Swords reversed and Queen of Swords. Lots of air energy here! The Death card and Six of Swords both reversed indicate a great hesitancy to necessary change that requires you to leave something or someone significant behind. I say this because at the bottom of the deck you have Size of Cups reversed too, which tells me that this is all tied to the past in some way. The Queen of Swords asks you to cut through all the emotional BS and really be logical right now. You know that change is necessary and inevitable, so stop resisting it. This is all meant for your greater good and is exactly the transformation you've been asking for -- so, why are you resisting it so much? Nothing changes if nothing changes. You're really going to need to trust yourself and your vision right now and possibly tune out the outside world so that you can gain clarity on the way forward. This isn't the end... it's just the beginning!
WATER SIGNS 🌊
🦀 CANCER (June 21 - July 21)
Ace of Pentacles (rx): Alright, Cancer... you ready for this? That new beginning or opportunity you were hoping for didn't manifest because it simply wasn't meant for you. It was a temporary, short-term fix and you're meant for more. I say this with certainty because you have the Ace of Wands and The Universe/World coming out as your clarifier cards, so that tells me that something that's more aligned with your passions and ambitions is coming in. The Universe/World card is pointing to expansiveness that celebrates all the work you've put in thus far and almost rewards you for your patience and trust in the Universe's timing. Remember, redirection is the Universe's protection. You were meant for more, love! You have the Queen of Wands at the bottom of the deck and she's an even clearer message that you're meant to shine in your own right this season, dear Cancer. Everything you've endured and experienced in life -- especially the tougher moments -- have all prepared you for the grand blessings that are being welcomed into your life. You just have to trust, surrender, and have some patience. Good things are coming!
🦂 SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
King of Swords (rx): I'm jumping right to the card at the bottom of the deck because it popped out for a second time: The Lovers card. I feel like this has to do with a romantic situation or a dynamic that is very deep and karmic. Your clarifier cards are Five of Wands reversed and The Hanged Man reversed, so it appears that there's some resolution coming in if you're able to see things from a different, more elevated perspective. The King of Swords is coming out strongly with the message that there is an abuse of power happening and it's driven by egotistical and domineering tendencies. Whether this be you or the other person, the message is this: resolution is possible when you both lay down your swords and stop fighting fire with fire. Instead of trying to win the battle; stop, look, and listen to what's truly going on here. Egos are bruised, emotions are being triggered, and a battle is trying to be won that doesn't even need to be fought in the first place. Take a break from each other so that you can regroup internally and come back together from a centered place, rather than survival mode (i.e. projecting fears, hurts, and trauma onto each other). This isn't tit for tat. Use this experience as an opportunity for growth rather than demise. You have the power to choose better.
🐟 PISCES (Feb 18 - Mar 19)
Three of Cups: It looks like you're really being asked to get out there and fill up your cup this month, Pisces! The Three of Cups came out to clarify the Three of Cups, so that's a extra potent message to socialize and be seen. There's also an element of being celebrated this month for something... and dare I say it has something to do with your career, because you also have the Eight of Pentacles coming out as a clarifier card. Your hard work and dedication to mastering your craft is being recognized so get comfortable with being celebrated!! Embrace this time and soak up all the feel-good vibes coming your way because you've earned it and definitely deserve it. Queen of Cups is also coming out to deepen your message this month and to remind you to really trust your intuition and don't be afraid to let your feminine, emotional side shine this month. This is your GODDESS era, Pisces... drink it up!!
