April 2017 may be a challenging month. You may experience a painful ending – but remember that it is always darkest before the dawn. Necessary endings usually lead to something more powerful and positive, even if they are painful at first. Last month, you may have mined the depths of your subconscious mind and perhaps you’re now feeling confronted by the negative emotions that have appeared as a result. Don’t run away from these uncomfortable feelings. Deal with fears and negative thoughts head-on in order to release them. It may be helpful to shake things up a bit this month. Try a new routine on for size. It may give you a new perspective.
Watch the Tarot card forecast to discover exactly what’s coming up in April 2017 and how to make the most of the month ahead.
Hi, I’m Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, the online learning community for people who love to read Tarot and who also want to live an intuitive and inspired life.
I’m here today with the monthly Tarot forecast for April 2017. This is designed to help you have the best month ever, so let’s get straight into it.
The blessing for this month – wait for it – is the Ten of Swords. You’re probably thinking how on earth is that a blessing. There’s a guy with ten swords in his back. It looks pretty bad.
Yes, there is a little bit of pain associated with the Ten of Swords, but this is kind of like the darkest hour before dawn.
Have you ever had that time where you knew that something had to come to an end and it was incredibly painful at that point of the ending, but you knew that what comes after that is something so much more powerful and important in your life?
Maybe it’s a relationship that’s been struggling for many, many months and it’s time to just rip the Band-Aid off and say, “You know what? We’re not suited to each other.” Then you feel that great sense of relief afterwards after you’ve got over the loss and the grief from the relationship and you realize, “Oh my goodness, I’m now so much freer as a result of having let go of that relationship.”
It might be the same for a job where leaving the job you think, “Oh my goodness, where am I going to get the money from? How am I going to survive,” but you just go, “You know what, just got to do it.” Then you do it and then you feel that sense of freedom again.
Think about how this card might be playing out in your life in this month. If you’re looking at it going, “Uh-uh, I don’t need to do that, no,” then I suggest come back to this in a couple more weeks and it might have a little bit more meaning.
Let’s move onto our challenges. Our challenges for this month are represented in the Moon reversed. If you recall, last month we had the moon in the upright position as a blessing. Now it’s gone reversed and it’s as a challenge.
You might have really gone into the depths of your subconscious mind or what’s really driving you last month. As I said last month, it’s kind of that place where you’ve not travelled before and sometimes it can be a little bit confronting as you realize different parts of yourself. You’re like, “Ah, that kind of feels a bit uncomfortable.”
The challenge this month is dealing with some of that discomfort around those darker aspects of yourself or parts of your shadow self.
While it’s uncomfortable and you might feel some tension as you go kind of deep into, “Oh, this is part of myself that I’m not really that happy with.” It might stir up some really old emotions that have been sitting there for a while. That might feel like your challenge.
But it order to turn this into an opportunity, you need to really confront that head on. If you’re feeling fear surfacing or anxiety in any way, really deal with it. Don’t sort of run away from it hoping that it will go back into the depths of your subconscious because the more that you deal with it the more that you can start to release some of those negative emotions.
Now, of course, you can always seek out professional help if you feel like you’re going into quite a deep, dark space and it can often be great to have a professional support you in that journey. Just keep that in mind.
What’s our recommended action for this month? Well, I’ve got the Knight of Pentacles reversed. I see this guy as kind of the king or the knight of routine and doing things a very set way every single time. Well, this month it’s encouraging you to shake things up a little bit.
All those routines that you’ve had in place in the past, maybe try doing something different. If you’re a little bit like me, I have a very set walk/run path that I go on two or three times a week. This card might be telling me to try and change up my exercise path and go a different direction instead.
Now, that’s just a simple example, so think about your life right now and what kinds of routines need a bit of a shake up so that you can reengage with them and enjoy them even that much more.
There’s quite a lot going on there. You’ve got the Ten of Swords, a painful ending, but think of what comes after that ending and the release and the freedom that you’ll feel.
In terms of challenges, we have the reversed moon. You may feel a little bit challenged and confronted as you go deep into who you really are and you start to discover aspects of yourself that might feel not so great, so it’s negative emotions or things that you really want to change as to who you are.
Then finally you’re being encouraged to change up your routines and do things a little bit more differently this month.
I hope that’s been helpful. I hope you have a really great month ahead.
