Weekly tarot card reading horoscope by sign, April 18, 2022

You don’t need to know the difference between a three-card and a Celtic cross to get the most out of a tarot card reading. All you need: your sun sign! Here’s what I do: shuffle my tarot deck and take out the cards in order from Aries to Pisces, plus a general card for everyone so you can get specific advice on your personality. Let’s go!


Reflect on the theme of emotional intelligence this week with the compassionate and wise King of Cups. Who do you know who exhibits this trait well? And maybe not so well? Think of yourself too. What life lessons have made you more emotionally aware and compassionate? I bet it’s the hardships, losses, setbacks and failures. Nothing teaches us more about ourselves than these things. Appreciate and acknowledge how far you’ve come and decide to keep going, always improving and learning. We are all a work in progress.


Property of Hearst

The Page of Swords is sometimes a little dumb, yes, I said it. He can’t make up his mind, and he’s so hot and cold. His insecurity about his own abilities keeps him from committing to things. Basically, Aries, don’t be the Page of Swords this week, okay? Don’t let your (very well hidden) insecurities keep you from doing what you want or should be doing.


the hermit tarot card, showing a woman's face in the sky obscured by a cloud

Property of Hearst

Taurus season is just around the corner, so you can do whatever you want this week! The Hermit shows that you are probably indulging in your favorite activities of (too) thinking, resting and relaxing at home in your own space. Others might ask you why you sleep so much, but you know you’re not just napping. You deal! Your analytical mind needs this time to relax and reset. Give yourself some time to rest this week so you can start Taurus season off right.


the Four Wands tarot card, showing four golden keys on a white background near some diamonds and a pink full moon

Property of Hearst

Forward and upward, Gemmy. You can sleep when you’re dead. The Four of Wands sees you hustling this week. Your career and plans are on fire, the rewards are starting to emerge, and you KNOW what to do next. Make it happen, because this week brings a surge of energy and creativity you don’t want to waste.


the tarot card the ace of swords, showing a hand holding a gold pen

Property of Hearst

Truth is a ~thing~ for you, Cancer. You demand it from others, you know everyone’s secrets, and your FBI-worthy Instagram sleuthing skills scare people a little. Yet you almost always hold back your true opinions and feelings. You are one of the most secretive signs (besides Scorpio). The Ace of Swords urges you to do things differently this week. Share your truth. Be vulnerable. Tell people how you feel. I promise it’s worth it. Things will only change if you reveal what’s wrong. Open up and express yourself fully.


the tarot card the two wands, showing two golden keys on a pink sky and a diamond

Property of Hearst

You are assertive, confident and sure of yourself, so decision making is usually not a problem. But the Two of Wands is clouding your judgment this week. You feel skeptical and unsure of the ~right~ way forward, so you’re just a little adrift and hoping it will work out on its own. This will not be the case. You must act. So make the most of it. Trust that no matter what, you can always make a new and different choice. Don’t get stuck here, move on.


the Nine of Pentacles tarot card, showing nine arched clocks over a diamond and an eye

Property of Hearst

Charting long-term ambitions makes you feel comfortable and secure. You like to be in control of your destiny and follow a five-year plan. The Nine of Pentacles sees you in this mode a lot this week, and you’re enjoying every minute of it. Your career, your finances, your home and your health are under the microscope. It all starts here, in research, planning and programming. Enjoy the design of your life!


the temperance tarot card showing two hands above one eye, two diamonds and a full moon

Property of Hearst

Balance, moderation, harmony: these things are very important to you, because you are very sensitive to disorder, chaos and conflict. Temperance shows you adjusting your footing to accommodate a ~new normal~ that you have encountered in your world. Something has changed, and it has left you feeling out of balance. It took some getting used to, but you’re here now, you feel safe. Congratulate yourself, Libra, you are a survivor!


the High Priestess tarot card, showing the lower half of a black woman's face with red lipstick and diamond earrings with a full moon behind her

Property of Hearst

The High Priestess recognizes your innate fascination and talent for the occult, the mysterious, the unknown and the esoteric. Dive deep this week, Scorpio! Unleash your “little witch”! Celebrate like it’s Samhain and revel in all your favorite spooky activities. Read your tarot cards, astral travel at night, heal with crystals, observe with an obsidian glass, talk to the ~other side~. It’s time to connect with your intuition and your psychic side. Messages are waiting for you.


the tower tarot card, showing a hand holding three golden boxes with eyes in them

Property of Hearst

Don’t panic, Sagittarius! Everyone always winces when they see The Tower, but this card is not everything misfortune and darkness. Of course, it could mean that something surprising or even shocking starts this week, and you discover something about a situation that you never realized. It might even anticipate an end. But my friend, everything is for the best. The tower only knocks down structures that are already fragile, so it does you a big favor. Trust the process.


a hand holds seven golden pens on a diamond background

Property of Hearst

Can’t get past you, Capricorn. The Seven of Swords triggers your spider senses this week. You know someone around you isn’t honest or well-meaning, and you know what to do. Protect yourself first. Don’t expose your vulnerabilities and don’t share too much. Be careful, careful and protective. You can handle this.


the ace of wands tarot card, showing a black and white hand holding a golden key above a full moon

Property of Hearst

The Ace of Wands is a beautiful invitation to activate something new, inspiring and rewarding. Aquarius, what really fascinates you? What would you like to learn? Where do you want to visit? Who would you like to talk to? Do it yourself this week. Treat yourself to an inspiring treat, whether it’s a one-time event or a new project. You’re a super smart air sign and you need a new stimulus. Go and get it.


the Queen of Wands tarot card, showing a golden key surrounded by diamond crowns

Property of Hearst

Sometimes you can be a bit passive. You tend to let others make group decisions. The Queen of Wands pushes that part of you aside this week, and you find yourself in front, in the lead, telling THEM how it’s going to be. And you know what? It feels good! We love this new Pisces! Be bossy more often. You have great instincts, so be confident in your leadership ability.
