Your Zodiac Sign's Love Tarot Card Horoscope For The Week Of April 9-15, 2018

Love, Zodiac

What do the stars have in store for you?

A very rare astrological phenomenon is going to occur on April 10th this year. Four planets — Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn — are going retrograde at once in the sky! So if you thought this Mercury retrograde in Aries was bad, wait until this bomb explodes this week.

Since the energy of a planet becomes internalized and diminished during a retrograde cycle, the effect of this is going to create more than it’s fair share of problems and surprises in your life, especially your zodiac sign's love life, since Venus, the planet of love, is also involved in this series.

That’s what we are going to discuss in your weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading for April 9 to April 15, 2018: how this cosmically-charged phenomenon will affect your love life this week. So, let’s dive in.

ARIES: 5 of Wands

This week is not going to be a good one for you, Aries. First of all, the Mercury retrograde in Aries is already messing up your ability to communicate in your relationships. So now that Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn are also going retrograde, you will definitely see some fights and petty arguments in your love life. And the worst part is, once the effects of these retrogrades pass, you will realize how foolish your arguments and conflicts really were.

So to stay on the safe side, and try to reign in your impulsive and short-tempered nature this week by taking three long deep breaths in and out, or counting backward from five to one whenever you are annoyed or irritated. This will engage your logical self and bring you back to the present moment, which will help you react less.

TAURUS: King of Swords

Taurus, this week is going to be an intellectually-charged period for your relationship. Not only is this retrograde Venus in your own sign, but the retrograding Saturn and Jupiter are in Capricorn and Scorpio, respectively, both of which are friendly with Taurus.

So while the retrograde Mercury in Aries might try to mess things up, the combined effect of these other planets will enable you to quiet down and steer your relationship safely through. In fact, your partner will depend on you to take the reigns this week when it comes to making decisions that could affect your relationship.

Cancer, this week you will feel the urge to take some time out of your romantic relationship and nurture the other relationships in your life, especially the one you have with the most important women in your life.

LEO: 10 of Swords

This is a period of change for you, Leo. And change is always painful at first. In fact, you may even realize after much introspection that it’s time for you and your partner to go your separate ways. And that decision, whether yours or your partner’s, would pierce your heart and tear it apart.

Hold fast when that happens. Because change, however painful, always births something extraordinary in time, which would not have come your way if you had not let go of the old.

VIRGO: 10 of Wands

Virgo, this week will be a mixed bag of blessings and curses for you. On one hand, you will finally see a passion project of yours bringing in the fruits of your labor, but on the other hand, this will increase the workload on you, which will make you feel like you are being crushed under the burden of too many responsibilities.

Remember to take rest and recharge yourself when that happens. You cannot give one hundred percent when you are running on empty.
