Tune in—then plan accordingly.

The month of April may have you feeling a little anxious and uncertain because of coronavirus (COVID-19), but fortunately, things are positively shifting with the arrival of spring and a brand new cycle of energy to embrace and look forward to.

While these are strange times you’re living in, thanks to social distancing, new hand-washing routines, and an unprecedented amount of time at home, you will ultimately pull through with a better understanding of your personal power and a greater sense of what you truly value in life.

You are being guided to go inward and check in with yourself by asking: “Does my way of thinking serve my highest good?” and “How can I view my current situation differently?” You are getting good lessons this month that pertain to the creative power of your words and the transformative magic of your thoughts.



Card: 5 of Wands

Despite the chaos and distractions, you ultimately got this, Aries. There’s a positive new beginning ahead for you if you can manage to focus your energy on tackling one thing at a time. Otherwise, you can end up making things more difficult for yourself than they need to be. Flowing, not forcing, is key for this month.



Card: Hermit (Reversed) 

Your mental, emotional, and spiritual energies can all use some extra love and nurturing. Try avoiding too much social media and opt for diving into a new book instead. Visual information can harm or heal you. When you do hop onto Instagram, make sure you have curated a beautiful, inspiring experience to avoid triggering anxiety. There’s already enough reality in your reality. Create your dream world and enjoy it.



Card: Seven of Cups 

Don’t overthink it. Things will be a lot simpler and to the point for once, so going through every single possible outcome in your mind isn’t necessary or productive right now, as this can actually cause some major self-sabotage and blockage to occur. The most obvious choice is the best decision right now. Trust yourself.



Card: 4 of Cups

This is going to sound very “Stevie Nicks” but there is magic and opportunity all around you. Try not to get too hung up what’s happening in your current situation—that will change soon. Ask yourself these crucial questions: Where is my energy focused right now? Is it productive or destructive?

Try not to focus on the things that aren’t going right and start giving your attention to the abundant possibilities to transform your reality.



Card: Death (Reversed)

It’s time to embrace change without fear. There’s a complete internal transformation brewing within you if you’re willing to let it happen. These changes are long overdue, which means you won’t have to do too much soul searching to figure out who or what needs to go. Don’t block your blessings by holding onto something that isn’t for your highest good. Let it go and embrace a new beginning.



Card: 6 of Swords (Reversed)

Keep it moving. The drama, the turbulence, and the worst is behind you, so make sure you aren’t purposely holding onto the past to avoid stepping out of your comfort zone. You’re ready to move on. Organize your thoughts by making two lists. First, write a list of nine things that you fear about leaving the past behind. Then, make a list of seven things you want to manifest in your life. Compare them. See how they support or negate each other, then burn both lists and make the necessary changes.



Card: Ace Of Pentacles

You are a manifestation powerhouse right now. This will be a surprisingly prosperous, restorative, and nourishing time for you. Because your words, thoughts, and emotions create your reality, being as intentional as possible is key. Anything that makes you feel happy, secure, and grounded is what you want to focus your energy on.



Card: 7 of Swords

You can use your powers of persuasion to get what you want but just make sure you’re not taking on more than you can handle. Make sure you’re understanding all of the details and information before fighting for something you might end up feeling bound to or overwhelmed by. All that glitters is not gold.



Card: Ace Of Swords (Reversed)

Embrace your feelings, Sagittarius. You won’t be able to avoid them these next couple of weeks. You will have to feel your way through and connect to yourself and others at a heart level. All of the internal work that needs to be done will come to the surface to be seen and dealt with, but with multiple benefits as a result. A meditation routine or a ceremonial vision quest can be particularly effective right now.



Card: 9 of Wands

Trust yourself. You have all the resources you need to succeed. A lot of the self-doubt you’re feeling right now comes from negative past experiences, but you’re being guided to stop doubting yourself so much and, frankly, to stop being so paranoid. Shift your perception. You are safe.



Card: Six Of Wands

You’re almost there; success is on your path. All you need to do is shift your energy towards mastering your craft as opposed to seeking outside validation, which we know can easily turn into criticism. Saying positive affirmations in front of a mirror can be some potent confidence-building magic. Take back your power.



Card: 5 of Pentacles

Try not to spiral. Spiritual growth, beauty, and prosperity are available to you, but your words and thoughts are focused in the wrong direction. Remember: Words are spells, thoughts are things. Be mindful of the conversations you’re having with yourself and others. You will feel a sense of stability again; this moment right now is temporary. Focus on what you’re grateful for, and you will start to feel a whole lot better.
