You don’t need to be a tarot card pro to get your cards read. All you need: your Sun sign! Here’s what I do: Shuffle my tarot deck and pull out the cards in order from Aries to Pisces plus one general card for everyone so that you can get specific advice around your personality.
ARIES: KNIGHT OF WANDS
This card is literally YOU–the Knight of Wands is a bold, brave and inspiring character who fearlessly pursues his goals and intentions. So there’s a helpful breeze at your back this week, helping you reach your goals faster than you could normally expect. Use this energy to make progress where it counts. You can go further than you currently believe, so broaden those horizons and set forth!
TAURUS: ACE OF WANDS
Once upon a time, you embarked on a project or role that really suited you, and you felt was something you could excel in. Then life took over, as it does, and this endeavour got lost in the wash. Think back, Taurus, because this week the Ace of Wands means you’ve got the chance to reignite this authentic passion. What were you once really good at? What comes naturally to you? Identify it, and get back to it.
GEMINI: THE MOON
Pay attention to your dreams and unconscious musings, Gemini, because there is an illusion or secret in your world that’s about to be revealed. The Moon is a magical card and indicates this truth won’t come to you directly–instead, you’ll find out via a series of omens or coincidences. Keep a notebook with you and jot down your thoughts, chill out in the pool, meditate, listen to classical music–clear your mind, and a major realization will come to you.
CANCER: QUEEN OF CUPS
Your love life and relationship landscape look very healthy and happy this week, so invest time with those you love. The Queen of Cups is you, at the centre of all those who adore you, basking in the glow of family, loves and friends, swimming in a sea of good intentions. Take this time to appreciate compliments, ask everyone how they’re doing, and congratulate their achievements. It’s a love fest, Cancer–enjoy it!
LEO: NINE OF CUPS
Dream a dream, my friend, because the tarot’s ‘wish-come-true’ card graces you with its presence this week. Make it count, and don’t waste the fairy dust! Sprinkle it liberally over an ambition you believe in and desire. Magic can happen when you make overt moves in this dream’s direction–the universe will get the hint and help you progress by bringing opportunity and good fortune your way. You won’t believe how far you can go!
VIRGO: TWO OF COINS
You’re a precise and organized person, Virgo, but life’s not always like that. Chaotic and unexpected forces can mess with even the best-laid plans. Luckily, this week, the Two of Coins ensures that whatever obstacles come your way this week, you’re good at rolling with them. Ride the waves and enjoy–especially because some of these changes are really good for you in the long-run.
LIBRA: PAGE OF WANDS
Make someone in your life smile this week, Libra, and enjoy an adventure together. You can spread some genuine happiness by either planning an outing, sending a surprise gift or message, or treating them to something special. It’s nice to be nice, and you’re one of the nicer ones, Libra! Put a little credit in the good karma bank–it will return at a later date, trust me.
SCORPIO: QUEEN OF SWORDS
Independence might be your middle name, Scorpio. You’re strong and fearless, and don’t like to be told what to do or even guided by others. And this week is all about being even MORE upfront about what you want. The Queen of Swords predicts you being in a bold (dare I say even ruthless) mood, and this energy empowers you to go after something (or someone) you’ve admired for a while now. We’re all 100% responsible for our own lives, and you’re ready to stand up and go after what you want in yours. Do it.
SAGITTARIUS: NINE OF WANDS
The Nine of Wands shows up when we’re exhausted by something in our life. An issue arises and we exclaim ‘Ugh no, not THAT again.’ But it’s different this time, Sagittarius, because you are so, SO close to success. A small bit of effort will go a long way this week, and on the other side of this glitch lies smooth sailing ahead. So, run at your obstacles. You’ve got this.
CAPRICORN: TEN OF COINS
Your home is very important to you–it’s a nest to relax in, a sanctuary from the harsh world outside, and a symbol of your achievements and status. This week, the Ten of Coins sees you making great progress towards improving your pad. Maybe it’s a total change of location, a bit of successful DIY, or a brilliant purchase which changes up the whole mood of the place. Look out for home improvement opportunities in the next seven days!
AQUARIUS: SEVEN OF SWORDS
Aquarius, you’re a true humanitarian and are hardwired to care about the wellbeing of your fellow humans. However, not everyone is as egalitarian and ethical as you. The Seven of Swords asks you to pause before rushing into any debates this week. Take a breath and listen to what the other person has to say, rather than planning your counterpoint. Needlessly heated fights can be avoided, and who knows, you might come out of the convo with a different perspective!
Powerful forces are moving you forwards, Pisces. Something is drawing to a close, and you’re processing your part in it, accepting what has happened and maybe atoning for anything you regret. This is clearing the way for a new chapter–something more authentically “you” which helps you to find your true space in this universe. Keep going.
