Find Your Monthly Queeroscopes reading below! I change them the last week of every month so be sure to check back!

April sees a lot of us tackling new projects, but first we have to confront ourselves and work through the instinct to become comfortable. That instinct is insidious so April comes in and highlights every time we are settling into ruts and letting the things we want slip away.
Not all of the associated quotes are necessarily LGBTQIA in origin but I think that if anything, we must remember that knowing what battles to risk facing head on and when we can allow ourselves to be authentic, is a struggle that all LGBTQIA people will resonate with at some point in their lives. Going forward into February, take a moment to honor the self you've gotten to experience and who it is you've become & are in the processing of becoming.
Knight of Wands, 4 of Pentacles
April is a dare. You want something but fear is nagging at you. It's doing the worst case scenario dance in your head and making you dream smaller than you could be. Keep those small dreams or not, but honestly, I dare you to go big or go home. Come on, Aries. Let's go.
If you want to conquer fear, don't sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. — Dale Carnegie
Ace of Cups, The Devil
Dreaming is great but it won't help you this month, Taurus. You sit on things for so long that they become something you pine for when you could be acting on it instead. Take action and leave things behind that no longer serve you. You are ready. Even if you're not ready, it's still time and that's what matters.
Quit now, you'll never make it. If you disregard this advice, you'll be halfway there. — David Zucker
6 of Swords, Page of Pentacles
Walking away comes to you naturally, but what has it taught you? Think on this before you take off on foot. Do that, because your next destination is determined by how you react now. It can be amazing if you learn the lessons from it, but living in la-la land won't help you this month. It's time to get real.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' — Eleanor Roosevelt
King of Cups, 3 of Wands
Cancer, don't overthink, this is your time to shine. I want to see you pouring everything you have into your life because it is right there but only if you come out and get it. It's not selfish if it's something you've busted your ass for.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. — Bruce Lee
6 of Wands, 5 of Pentacles
You are capable. If you focus on the glass half empty, that's all you'll be drinking out of, Leo. Change the way you frame yourself and see yourself for the vibrant, capable, go-getter that you can be. Yes, I know life gets you down from time to time but you have the ability to bounce back if you want to. That's important this month because you're finally coming into your own in many spheres of life, embrace it.
Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye. — Helen Keller
8 of Wands, The Fool (rx)
Everything is firing off for you and the Fool is a reminder to not second guess yourself this month. You're not getting ready to leap, you have leapt, and it's time to let yourself fly. If you second guess your belief in yourself, you'll only end up falling. Fly, fly, fly.
You cannot fly like an eagle with the wings of a wren. — William Henry Hudson
Wheel of Fortune, 10 of Swords
Every time you enter into shadow space, that place where all is negative, you're stalling your movement forward. When that happens, it's time to redirect that energy and make the next steps forward, even if you don't feel like it. I don't care about your mood, I care about the energy you're utilizing to create, and if you're in a bad mood—at least you're still creating.
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.— Tony Robbins
7 of Wands (rx), Judgment (rx)
You don't have to fight the universe, you're walking the path you need to walk. Continue to do the things that you are drawn to and let it be something to grow on. These bigger things take time. I want to see you succeed just as much as you do, but breathe, there's still time on the clock.
It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one's steps to the upper air - there's the rub, the task. — Virgil
The Lovers, The Hanged Man
Compromise? Is that what it is? Well, I disagree. Seeing your life from a different perspective isn't a compromise all the time. No one is asking you to change into someone you're not, but they are asking you to see yourself. That person is a really awesome individual, so appreciate you for that reason. You can do a lot more from a place of being genuine than if you did it from a place of smoke and mirrors.
I am not interested in anything that doesn't have a genuine heart to it. You've got to have soul in the hole. If that isn't there, I don't see the point. — Nick Cave
Knight of Swords, The Sun
Don't think it to death, if you want your day in the sun then it's time to act. Move. Charge forward. You can think about it later when you're basking in the relief. If you overthink this month, you're going to feel run into the ground and not know why. The brain is a muscle, overwork that and you're going to find yourself exhausted.
As you get older, you overthink and can talk yourself out of anything. It's good to be a bit reckless and experimental. — Naomi Watts
Page of Cups, The Emperor
You have such an odd relationship with power and stability. Let it be and learn to recognize that imposter syndrome in a heartbeat. You can stop that feeling that you don't belong in it's tracks if you look at your life, you've done some wonderful things. What does believing in them look like?
If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. — William J. Clinton
Ace of Swords, Queen of Cups
You are your biggest enemy. Why? Because you're scared to see change around you. Change is scary but it's going to be. Whether you like it or not. You can decide what to do with it, though, and that's where the power lies. Can you grab it or do you let the fear drive the bus? That's your biggest hurdle, and honestly, fuck fear.
Don't let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don't like them. —Stacy London
