Your Zodiac Sign's Love Tarot Card Horoscope For The Week Of April 16-22, 2018

weekly horoscope
Love, Zodiac

Love is not always fun and games.

In the age of social media and the left swipe, it's very easy to keep hopping from one relationship to the next whenever conflicts arise. Our zodiac signs have a way of pretending that true love is effortless, even when that's not how real life works.

In real life, you cannot escape paying the bills and taking care of the day-to-day drudgeries, regardless of how fiery and hot your relationship might be. In your weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading for April 16 to 22, 2018, we will discuss the one thing you should do that will help you find balance and strengthen the bond between you and your partner. 

So if you have tried and failed to balance these two polar opposite aspects of love, don't worry. 

ARIES: Knight of Swords

Aries, you chose your partner and forged this relationship with them because something about their personality and their heart really touched yours. Don't forget that, even when you are fighting. Because at the end of the day, you are not enemies, but lovers.

So treat your partner with love and respect even when you do not see eye to eye. That consideration will bring the two of you closer after the conflict has been resolved maturely.

TAURUS: 5 of Pentacles

Taurus, you like routine. You like taking care of the day-to-day practicalities and grounding yourself in reality. That's why you often tend to put the material concerns of your relationship above its emotional needs. After all, money puts food on the table and pays for impromptu vacations with your beloved.

But have you really been spending all the money you have accumulated so far? Or have you just hoarded it all away for "rainy days," even though you have enough to outlast three seasons? If the latter scenario rings true for you, you need to rethink what money really means to you and your relationship. After all, money is just meaningless paper until you put it to good use.

GEMINI: King of Pentacles

You like to spend a lot, Gemini. And in your head, you always have a good reason for doing so. After all, what's the point of earning anything if you don't use it to buy experiences?

While living like that will definitely expose you to a lot of new knowledge, in the long run, it will leave you vulnerable to the hands of fate. After all, you never know when you might end up in a hospital with a brain aneurysm or lose your job due to a global economic recession.

So invest in your future and save even as you spend on your present. You will thank yourself down the line when you do it.

CANCER: 7 of Swords

Cancer, you can be quite manipulative in your relationships. And don't bother denying that because "it's for their own good" is a line meant more for you than for your partner.

Unfortunately, manipulations tend to drive people away faster since they undermine the foundation of your relationship. So the next time you feel the urge to manipulate a situation, ask yourself this: why do I feel so threatened by the truth?

The answer will help you reel in your hyper-emotional self, find the wound deep within your psyche that is driving that behavior, and will help you overcome it.

LEO: The Hierophant

Extravagant candlelight dinners, love poems, and a fiery passion might seem like the only thing you need from your relationship, Leo. But in reality, you also need structure to truly make your coupling last.

Whether a marriage or a well-established live-in relationship, boundaries will allow your passion to become even steamier. So find some structure.

VIRGO: 6 of Cups

Virgo, you are an Earth sign. So naturally, you are more inclined toward the boring bits that make a relationship last, namely the day-to-day chores and responsibilities.

Unfortunately, relationships need emotional nurturing as much as they need food on the table. So engage with your partner like a friend. Talk about your dreams, your hopes, your desires. Share your life stories and have fun. After all, what's the point of being in a relationship if it doesn't make your heart sing?

LIBRA: King of Cups

Libra, your relationship needs some emotional maturity to survive. And no, you cannot pin the entire blame on your partner. You need to work on it too. So start learning.

Watch couples who have gotten the emotional maturity down pat, read books on developing your emotional intelligence, and seek out people who can directly teach you. You may take a few years to get there, but the journey of a thousand miles always begins with one step.

SCORPIO: Reversed Queen of Pentacles

Scorpio, are you using your partner to feel good about yourself? Don't answer that yet. If you become jealous when your partner hangs out with his friends or his family or become possessive when he is in the vicinity of other beautiful women, you definitely are using your relationship to boost your self-worth.

True relationships are not about taking, but giving. It's when your cup is so full and abundant that you cannot help but share it with others. And the only way you can do that is by nurturing yourself first and filling that gaping hole you feel inside your heart when you are alone. After all, how can you give when you are empty?

Your man chose you so you have won. No need to keep fighting for his attention anymore (although you shouldn't get complacent either!).
