The Hierophant
APRIL OVERVIEW: The Hierophant (facing right) + 80. (be kind)

So much has changed since last month’s tarotscopes were written. We’ve seen our world turned upside down. Our lives are drastically different, whether because we are now hunkered down in our homes or because we are out risking our safety as essential workers on the frontlines in health care, grocery stores, delivering people the goods they need, and making sure our infrastructures continue to function. Many of us have lost jobs or are working from home; we are homeschooling our children; we are caring for loved ones. The Hierophant, when it is upright, speaks of our institutions and the ways they both help and hurt us. They offer needed support, but that can also come at the cost of too much structure, which poses limitations on us, oppresses those it should protect. In the Dark Days Tarot, a card turned 90 degrees to the right signifies that the energy of the card is waning. We, and our institutions, are currently in upheaval. Turned on their sides, our political, educational, medical and other systems are scrambling to adjust, to make sense of this new world, to do the right thing in order to protect the greatest number of people. At least in an ideal world, that is the goal. Ideally, our systems are able to be flexible and creative in a time of emergency. We, as individuals, can do the same if we look for opportunities to grow even in the midst of chaos and fear. Our oracle card reminds us to be kind to one another in the face of so much uncertainty, stress, and trauma. The rest will be messy for a while, but if the root of all our actions is kindness, we will make it through.

Ace of Wands
ARIES: Ace of Wands + 41. (follow your whoa)

Happy birthday my dear, Aries! Probably not the birthday you had in mind, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate and be celebrated, at least in some small way. What would bring you joy right now, even amidst the stress and sadness? What spark can still be ignited within you in your current circumstances? The Ace of Wands reminds you not to give up on your creative impulses, and your oracle card brings a message of the joy that comes from following your passion, even if it’s just reading a good book or sharing something online that’s important to you. These are the ways we stay engaged and my sense from your cards is that you will have a lot of them this month. Sharing them with others may bring the motivation they need to get through the day. It may feel incongruous at a time like this to turn to such simple pleasures and joys, but arguably it is needed now more than ever.

King of Swords
TAURUS: King of Swords Rx + 2. (protect your magic)

Taurus, your cards this month suggest that you may be finding it difficult to access your usual levels of mental acuity. This is understandable given the current state of the world. However, it is also causing you even more stress in an already stressful situation. The amount of energy you put into just trying to think straight is exhausting you and making it hard to accomplish the things that absolutely need to get done, even (especially?) in the midst of a global crisis. In order to help bring your energy back, your oracle card suggests that you protect yourself by engaging in some ritual self-care. This may look different for everyone, but these are some ideas that work with the element of air: visualize yourself inside a sphere of light that keeps you safe and protected; light sage for mental clarity; use the scents of rosemary, basil, or peppermint; put a healing crystal where you can see it— clear or smoky quartz or hematite are good options; write your worried thoughts down and then burn them. Whatever you choose, make it a non-negotiable part of your day!

Nine of Wands
GEMINI: Nine of Wands (facing right) + 26. (reach for the higher thought)

Dear Gemini, your tarot card this month depicts the faint outline of a woman standing inside a flame. As the flame rises, they turn into flowers, suggesting a transformative quality to whatever trials you are experiencing now. This may be the card we all need to see at this time in order to find meaning and hope in our current situation. It asks you to have faith, even in the midst of a terrifying moment in history. How are you being called to bravery in this moment? Simply waking up each day may honestly be enough. It takes courage for many of us to continue about our daily tasks, to *not* go out the front door, to sit with ourselves day after day. Or perhaps you are required to venture out. Either way, your cards remind you that there is meaning in what we do and that we actually have a certain amount of control over how we see our situation. Are we being swallowed by flames? Or do those flames contain the seeds of something beautiful that will blossom if we can sit still long enough within the discomfort?

The High Priestess
CANCER: The High Priestess + 59. (boobs)

Lovely Cancer. Your cards bring a healthy dose of strong feminine energy this month. The High Priestess carries herself with calm and assurance because she has an inner knowing that she trusts implicitly. Her intuition guides her to make decisions and bring healing to others without the need for endless amounts of research and seeking. In fact, the answers she seeks are all within herself. This card often appears when we are tempted to keep searching for something outside of ourselves, when it is actually inside of us all along. It can be hard in times like these not to incessantly search for other sources of understanding and expertise, but at a certain point, the time and energy we disperse when we look to external sources of knowledge outweighs any benefit we might gain from what we learn there. You contain multitudes within you. Search deep within your experience and the experience of your ancestors—especially the women who have come before you—in order to make sense of where to go from here.

Ten of Wands
LEO: Ten of Wands (facing right) + 60. (gather)

The Ten of Wands appears when we find ourselves stumbling under the weight of a burden that is of our own making. You’ve reached the completion of a difficult task or journey, but rather than feel freed, you are now having to deal with the responsibility that goes along with your accomplishments. This isn’t always a bad thing of course. We can’t always cut ties and run after doing our part, but the reality of sticking with something and doing the hard day-to-day work to keep it afloat may not have been what you originally had in mind. The current state of the world may be contributing to a new status quo that you are needing to adjust to on the fly. Or maybe you are feeling that some of the weight you were carrying has actually shifted under this new arrangement. Whatever it is, your oracle card reminds you that you don’t have to go it alone, even in the midst of social isolation. You are still connected to a rich community of people out there. It’s just a matter of finding some creative ways to come together while still staying physically apart. Remember to keep your passion flowing even during these bizarre times. It will be the key to your sanity and will likely be a huge help to your friends and loved ones as well.

Ace of Pentacles
VIRGO: Ace of Pentacles + 34. (get comfy with the shadows)

Dearest Virgo. Your gift in these strange times will have something to do with a material new beginning. This could be a new job or opportunity, a decision to help others in need financially, or an offering that has to do with holistic healing of some kind. Our bodies, our homes, and our careers are all part of our material world, any or all of which could feel particularly at risk right now. Your role as an earth sign, and a particularly industrious one, may well be to begin a new path for yourself in one of these areas. Or you may find that you have a knack for helping others to get a new start. You might consider what kinds of earth medicine you can draw to you right now. Money rituals? Online yoga classes? Or it could be as literal as looking into a career in real estate. How it plays out is up to you, but there is something you can engage in now that will be mutually beneficial for you and other people who are living through this moment of global crisis. Your oracle card suggests that you may need to do some inner work excavating the parts of yourself that you tend not to want to look at. Often the answers we seek lie in the shadow self. The more we resist it, the more confused and far from our purpose we find ourselves. Go deep so that you can open yourself up in the right way at the right time.

LIBRA: Strength (facing left) + 46. ($$)

Lovely Libra, you are in a unique position this month to share your gifts with the world. You have the capacity to maintain a deep inner calm even in the face of one of the most uncertain and challenging times in recent history. The Strength card appears when we are able to master our animal instincts and respond with grace and compassion. We will all likely cycle through times of panic, fear, or grief, but in between those difficult moments, you can rise up with the strength of the lion and be a face of calm reassurance to those around you. At the same time, your cards remind you not to lose sight of your own vulnerabilities and needs. Just because we are in a time of global crisis does not mean that our daily responsibilities disappear. Be sure to keep an eye on your cash flow and give it enough attention that it can continue to sustain you, even as you recognize that your relationships are your true priority.

Page of Wands
SCORPIO: Page of Wands (facing left) + 13. (get mad)

Dearest fellow Scorpios, our cards are pointing to a challenging moment for us personally within the context of the difficult global situation we find ourselves in. In a moment when connection with loved ones is already exceedingly difficult due to the physical barrier of social isolation, we may also find that we are resistant to letting our guard down where certain relationships are concerned. If this is the case for you, think about what it is that is keeping you from wanting to connect. Sometimes, ironically, our loneliness can keep us from wanting to reach out, because on some level we feel we’ve already been rejected. Or we may be experiencing anger that is too scary to imagine letting out because it feels out of our control. However, this is the time to let our authentic selves be seen by our loved ones, perhaps more than ever. If you need to get deep, have faith that they will be able to go there with you. If you are simply in need of some human contact, arrange an encounter that keeps everyone safe, but lets you connect even if it’s just online. It can feel exhausting to be so vigilant and we are in need of those things that refill our cups, both emotionally and spiritually.

The World
SAGITTARIUS: The World Rx + 19. (write!!)

With the World reversed appearing in your cards this month, you may feel that the world has literally been turned upside down. Nothing is as it was and the things you thought you could count on are nowhere to be found. However, the World card also reminds us just how far we have come. We are so close to seeing the results of our efforts, we just need to stay the course a little longer. In times like these, it can be hard to know what our role is. Have faith that you play a very important role indeed. In order to discern what is and isn’t expected of you at this time, you might try daily journaling as a way to release any pent-up emotions and negative thoughts you may be experiencing. By letting it all come out in a jumble, you can start to see patterns emerge and you will begin to understand the pieces of you that are constant and unwavering in the midst of all of the messiness that is swirling around you. You have the capacity to act as a calm anchor in the midst of a stormy sea. Allow yourself to access this steadiness so that you might also help others when they need it most.

 Eight of Wands
CAPRICORN: Eight of Wands (facing left) + 33. (go home)

Dear Capricorn, you may be starting to feel a little stir crazy. It’s absolutely understandable—we all need a channel through which to release energy or it begins to get pent up and can turn back on us in unhealthy ways. If you are feeling anxious or tense, look for ways to work out some of that stagnant energy. It needs to flow, whether through cardio movement outside (if you can do so safely and far from others) or inside using one of many online exercise options. One particularly useful method for you might be kundalini yoga. If you haven’t tried it, give it a chance! There is no better way to move stuck chi, and it can very quickly elevate your mood while grounding you at the same time, even with just ten minutes of practice. Whatever works for you will be best though, as long as you can stay away from others and stay safe. Your oracle card tells you to literally go home. Likely you are already there or somewhere that you can hunker down, but if you are not, think about a place you can go where you can feel safe and protected. Now is not the time for external exploration, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit on the couch all day. Stay in, but get moving!

Queen of Wands
AQUARIUS: Queen of Wands + 73. (but have you crafted lately?)

Lovely Aquarius. As surely you’ve become accustomed to this past year, you are once again being called to step into your highest self. You have been on a soul journey that is perhaps finding more meaning now that we are in the midst of a global crisis. The age of Aquarius is upon us and your sign is uniquely positioned to lead us into this new age with the knowledge and skills you have acquired. The Queen of Wands appears in our cards when we are being asked to share our talents and to help others cultivate their own. You have so many gifts to share with the world. It is up to you to decide which will be most needed now and which will keep you inspired and engaged. Your oracle card reminds you to keep your hands busy creating things, whether knitting, cooking, gardening, or doing art projects. Working with your hands will help you stay grounded during this moment of fiery energy. Channel your fire into the material realm and magic will happen.

Six of Swords
PISCES: Six of Swords (facing right) + 61. (welcome to the process)

Sweet Pisces, the Six of Swords has sailed into your cards this month, promising you better times ahead. This card depicts a person in a canoe paddling up a river of stars, guided by the light of the moon. You are on a healing journey and while you can rest assured that things will not always be this hard, it may also be dawning on you that on some level this process will never truly come to an end. It is simply part of being alive, being aware, and leaning into your own personal growth. Your place on this journey can feel scary at times, more like a slog at others, but there is always magic in it if you know where (or how) to look for it. What will help you to navigate this particular moment? Where can you find magic in this day and in this spot? Let your imagination have free rein for a least a few minutes each day. Visualizations of journeys may help (there are many online or you can conjure your own). Let yourself float up that river of stars and see where it takes you.
