Things are starting to fall into place and manifestations will be happening much quicker as we move forward into spring. Get clear on what you want to stay and what you’d rather see fade away, it’s time to spring clean your soul to make space for who you’re mean to be.
So without further ado, here’s your cosmic selection for April from the Holly Simple Tarot:
Aries: Father of Cups
You are the zodiac’s born leader, dear Aries. Jump first and ask permission later, right? The rest of the zodiac is in dire need of your bravado these days, but that doesn’t mean you can live without boundaries 24/7. This month calls for your discernment. Not every opportunity is worthy of immediate action. Be careful the alliances you make and the situations you sign onto, make sure the pools has water before you dive in head first. Let your intuition, your heart, and your passions be your guide as you cut ties to any pathways that don’t serve your better growth. Read the fine print before you sign upon the dotted line.
Taurus: Six of Cups
Allow your cup to runneth over with nostalgia this month, humble Taurus. As you create a space for yourself in this changing world, you’ll find that your home truly is where your heart is. Be mindful of the multiple meanings that cliche phrase contains. Yes, your humble abode is indeed fabulous, but you also create an energetic home in those you hold close to your heart. Allow the location of your home to be fluid as you find contentment in old connections that may reside in new locations. Be driven by the nostalgia of your youth, be it people or passions. There’s something to discover this month in the loves you’ve left behind.
Gemini: Son of Swords
You’re no stranger to seeking the truth, dear Gemini. Allow yourself to dive deeper into your usual inquiries as the spring unfolds. You’ve only just scratched the surface of how far you can submerge yourself in self-discovery. While immersing yourself in that soulful study, take quick and decisive action with who and what you choose to surround yourself with. Embrace the study buddies who are just as eager to learn about themselves as you are. Trust your gut and work from a place of reason rather than emotion. If something or someone in your circle isn’t pushing you to become a better version of yourself, it’s time to advance to the next level of your education without them. You’ll be amazed at how much easier things get done when everyone involved sees the higher perspective.
Cancer: Daughter of Swords
Though your skills of perception are perfection this month, Cancer, be careful not to fall prey to your own hubris.

The world is showing you a mirror to yourself where water spots and fingerprints still linger, but they’re only visible from certain angles. Observe the qualities you feel quick to judge in those around you and you’ll find the map to where you’ve yet to fully heal yourself. Treat others as you would like to be treated and enjoy the vibe that shines back upon you from their reflection.

Virgo: The Chariot
Vigilant Virgo, you’ve worked hard to establish strength and resilience in your aura during the start of 2019, now the Universe is calling upon your powers of proaction to move things forward faster. There’s no longer a need to seek advice or insight from the outside world. You have everything you need within. Trust in your own capacity to create change.

Libra: Ace of Wands

Have a backup plan on how to capture these fleeting moments of brilliance before they float away. Audio files on your phone, notes on a napkin, or a dream journal near your bed will help to capture the energy so you can return to the idea when time allows.

The Universe knows better than you do when the plants are ripe for harvest. You’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor when they’re at their ripest.
Sagittarius: Eight of Swords
Stop playing victim to your circumstance, savvy Sag. You’ve thought your way out of many a pandora’s box before because your curiosity is your greatest ally. The Eight of Swords implies you’re feeling trapped, whether by circumstance or by circular thinking. It’s time to lift the lid on that self-imposed prison. You have full control of how to change the place you’ve found yourself. Let your wanderlust guide you to a more scenic point of view, be it literal or metaphorical. Regain your perspective on the situation. Can you spot a little sunshine through the clouds? Stick your focus to wherever you find optimism, no matter how fleeting or small. Your thoughts are constantly creating your reality, edit them to write the story of your dreams.
Capricorn: Six of Wands
Joy at last! It may feel like winter’s weight was heavier than usual this year, dear Cap, but you’ve finally found your sunshine! The Six of Wands calls for a celebration of your efforts. You’ve shifted so many energies over the course of just a couple months. That alone deserves deep attention and loads of accolades. Celebrate yourself as well as those around you who have held you up when you felt like crumbling.

Your work here still continues, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stop to have a little fun.
Aquarius: Nine of Swords
You’ve made a name for yourself by living your life slightly left of center, Aquarius. Just beware, lately it seems you’ve gone a few degrees too far off the beaten path for your own good.

Trust that you can still do things differently and reap the benefits of those who have come before you. Learning from their mistakes. Don’t make your journey harder than it needs to be. Fight for what you value, don’t value the fight alone. If the streams already headed towards your destination, save your strength by going with the flow.
As the last sign of the zodiac, dear Pisces, you’re no stranger to the cycle’s end. The Death card brings news of sudden change and unexpected finales. Embrace your fish-like energy and go with the flow forward. There’s no use in fighting what needs to leave, you’ll only prolong the inevitable process and cause pain for all involved. Accept this ending as the gift of a new beginning. You’ve learned all you can from your current circumstance, it’s time to let go of what no longer serves your highest growth. Purge all connections to things that hold you back. Cut ties to the anchor and keep sailing on .
