Taylor Swift’s TTPD Arrives Just Before a Rare Celestial Event on April 20

Taylor Swift is a multi-talented musical artist who knows how to create intricate storylines and metaphors with a life of their own. Anyone who’s a fan of the singer-songwriter knows she’s always trying her career success with the help of numerology and astrology. In Swift’s universe, the stars are a guiding light for the best times to write, announce, and release her albums. After all, she does have a reputation for dropping her albums during eclipses and releasing Easter Eggs during disruptive Mercury retrograde cycles. This month, Taylor Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD), is set to arrive just before a rare celestial Jupiter–Uranus conjunction on April 20, 2024. With new music less than a fortnight away, the anticipation among fans is electric. Here’s everything you need to know about how Taylor Swift is using astrology to write the success of The Tortured Poets Department in the stars.

What Is the Vibe of the Tortured Poets Department?

TTPD is the first album of Swift’s to drop since her break-up with her long-time boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Though we’re still awaiting the official release of The Tortured Poet’s Department, the cover art and tracklist suggest something fiery, dark, and alluring. Some fans have noted that the black-and-white album art is reminiscent of her reputation era, possibly hinting at the overall vibe and tone of the album. With a title like The Tortured Poet’s Department, other fans point to the literary themes prevalent in her previous work, particularly in folklore and evermore, and wonder if the story might continue from where it left off. We’ll see on April 19!

How the Astrology of the Week Aligns With The TTPD Release

Taylor Swift loves using astrology to align her album releases and project announcements. And, just like the zodiac seasons in astrology, each Taylor Swift era has its own unique energy. The release of The Tortured Poets Department signals a new chapter for the singer, one marked by a much more sultry and moody vibe than we’ve seen in previous eras. If the astrology of the week is any sign as to what themes might come up on the new album, as well as the success Swift can expect to see after its release, it’s going to be her biggest smash hit to date!

The Tortured Poets Department is set to release ahead of the Jupiter–Uranus conjunction in Taurus on April 20, 2024. This transit inspires us to strive toward unparalleled levels of freedom in our personal expression and dreams. With so many fans speculating that there will be some songs on the album about her break-up with Joe Alwyn, it makes sense that she’d release the songs in alignment with such a powerful cosmic moment of change. When Jupiter, the planet of new philosophies and expansions, aligns with Uranus, shocks, and sudden surprises, we have an opportunity to break free from limitations – and explore a new side of ourselves. Swift could be using the energy of this alignment to break free from her life and image with Joe Alwyn, as well as introduce her fans to a new side of the story that she hasn’t shown before.

Speaking of new stories, The Tortured Poets Department is also scheduled to release near the end of Mercury’s retrograde through Aries. From April 1 to April 25, 2024, the planet of communication and the written word has been taking a backspin through the passionate and bold energy of Aries, causing us to rethink our relationships and how we express our needs and desires in love. The timing of this album release suggests Taylor Swift is going back to correct some of the old narratives or misinformation about her relationship with Alwyn. It also ensures fans will be more open to receiving new details about Swift and her life than what she’d previously presented. Or, it could be as simple as Swift wanting to explore a new musical genre and sound in her work. Whatever the case, she’s setting the record straight, and we can’t wait.
