Your Weekly Tarot Reading for April 28 to May 4, 2024: Springtime Rebirth!

April 27, 2024

Spring is in full bloom as April melts into May this week, and we celebrate another turn on the Pagan wheel of sabbats with Beltane, the fiery holiday of creativity, fertility, and rebirth. Arriving at the midway point between the spring equinox and summer solstice provides a lovely opportunity to notice the height of the season. 

The days are longer, the temperatures are warmer, and there are many opportunities to get together and enjoy ourselves. The world has been reborn: Flowers have emerged, leaves have unfurled on the trees, our surroundings are filled with color, and intentions of possibilities are ripening. There’s no time like Taurus season to celebrate the wonders of life and revel in the delights of sensual pleasure!

This week’s intuitively pulled Tarot cards carry the helpful reminder to focus on the present moment. Let’s not get carried away with the what-ifs or bogged down by the mistakes of the past. Magic is already here and all around you. Sometimes, you just need to slow down to make a little effort and open your eyes wider in order to see it.

Read on for this week’s Tarotscopes for cosmic insight and guidance in your week ahead!

Aries: Five of Wands

Conflict is beneficial, Aries. Be firm in your convictions because this week finds you on the defense and in need of asserting your unique point of view. Don’t back down or give in because dissent is necessary at times. Healthy communication and an exchange of perspectives helps all sides to grow.

Taurus: Seven of Swords

Seek out the truth, Taurus. If something feels off at the moment, it most likely is so try not to take anything at face value. There’s more to this story so be unafraid to dig a little deeper, ask the right questions, and find the facts in order to make sense beyond the surface.

Gemini: The Moon Reversed

Let go of your fears, Gemini. Whatever you’re facing right now is not without challenge, as it stirs up some long-forgotten old feelings. Try not to get overwhelmed or paralyzed by indecision and anxiety. You know what to do: Just take a deep breath and keep going because the only way out is through.

Cancer: Ace of Swords Reversed

Choose your words carefully, Cancer. Let’s avoid any unnecessary misunderstandings this week by committing to clear communication, especially when it comes to emails, texts, or anything written down. Leave no room for misinterpretation so whatever you are trying to convey won’t be misconstrued to snowball into unneeded drama.

Leo: Five of Cups

Focus on the present, Leo. Let’s put the past behind you this week and invoke a more positive attitude around what is yet to come. Some things don’t work out, but that doesn’t mean that everything is an epic failure. Count your blessings and know that the best is still yet to come.

Virgo: Three of Pentacles Reversed

Appreciate your progress, Virgo. There’s a major task at hand, but it won’t get done in one night because you’re in this for the long haul! Stop looking at this as one overwhelming project, and instead break it up into smaller, more manageable pieces. Be sure to celebrate each step as you accomplish it in order to stay motivated.

Libra: King of Cups Reversed

Stay calm, Libra. A lot is happening in your life now, but you know you can ride out any storm by maintaining a clear mind and grounded perspective in practicality. Take this one step at a time and remain focused on the task at hand so you don’t get overwhelmed.

Scorpio: Queen of Pentacles

Be in the moment, Scorpio. Have you noticed how much has changed and how much better you feel now? You created this, and this week provides a lovely time to enjoy your sanctuary. Invite the people you love into your home, cook a good meal, and celebrate your contentment abundantly.

Sagittarius: Eight of Cups Reversed

Bounce back, Sagittarius. Unfortunately, recent events have revealed true colors, which happened to be shades you didn’t want to see. On the bright side, now you have the information, and you can step away knowing that this isn’t something for you. Rest assured that you will recover from this incident.

Capricorn: Five of Pentacles

Learn from your past, Capricorn. This week’s circumstances could find you repeating mistakes and slipping back into old habits, but it doesn’t need to be that way! Catch yourself before you go backward, and try taking a novel approach. When you do something differently, it’s no longer a pattern.

Aquarius: Ten of Cups 

Enjoy yourself, Aquarius! If you never take moments to notice the magic around you, you’ll never find it, so let’s change that this week! Make a concerted effort to notice all the beautiful blessings you have created and celebrate them abundantly with the people you love. Anything can be an enchanted occasion if you say so!

Pisces: Six of Pentacles Reversed

Don’t give it all away, Pisces. It’s lovely to be generous, but if you give more than you have to spare, you will only wind up depleted and perhaps a bit resentful! Share the resources you can and trust that they are enough because there’s no need to go overboard.
