Jupiter is turning retrograde in April, Saturn is turning retrograde in April, Pluto is turning retrograde in April, and it certainly seems as if you too are turning retrograde this month. Something you have been looking forward to or enjoying the momentum of at work or in romance might slow down in its progress and even look as if it is ebbing away. A project may seem as if i is sort of slipping through your fingers. Like planets, when tarot cards are in reverse, they indicate the need to take stock of where you are at so as to prevent small missteps now becoming foundational blunders later. It is the ‘stitch in time that saves nine’. However, those who fail to employ ‘retrograde’ periods and messages as course corrections find themselves floundering in their attempts to move anything along as a sense of being thwarted takes over. This month offers you the opportunity to tie loose ends, examine your real motivations for investing yourself in the projects or people that you have, and also touch base with significant parties to ensure everyone is on the same page. If life were a board-game, this is a little bit like getting a ‘Back to Start’ card — a temporary backslide until you realise everyone else is in the same boat as you with other obstacles and penalties, and somehow you benefit from getting to employ a fresh set of ideas on how to proceed. Some of you might be ‘returning home,’ revisiting the past, or reconsidering an earlier position in some way, but if you do, ask yourself whether it is in the interest of your evolution or simply a regression to your comfort zone.
Left to right: Foundational issue, April’s message
Generalised tarot readings such as this, written for everyone under one Sun sign, present archetypal energies that may or may not play out for you, depending on your personal context. Therefore, if this message does not apply to you, I recommend checking out one’s Moon sign and Ascendant sign tarotscope as well (because the message you need just might be there or emerge as a combination instead).
