You don’t need to know the difference between a three-card and a Celtic cross spread to get the most out of a tarot card reading. 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. Let’s go!
A GENERAL CARD FOR EVERYONE: THE HANGED MAN
Sometimes the only way to get what you truly want is to give up something else—think breaking bad habits, sticking to a budget, or keeping yourself on track towards a goal. That’s exactly this tarot card’s energy. The Hanged Man represents a state of purgatory or limbo, often self-imposed, that happens for a reason. Take this time to examine your life. Look for areas where you feel you’re sacrificing or denying yourself something, and make sure it’s in service of a good end result. If you’re on track, don’t give up! Hang in there.
ARIES: FIVE OF PENTACLES
Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face, Aries. The Five of Coins reveals that your pain has caused you to deflect responsibility, seek solitude, and ignore the light at the end of the tunnel. You are generally an optimistic person. Remember this trait! It will serve you well right now.
TAURUS: FOUR OF CUPS
Same old, same old. You are feeling a bit ~meh~ about things right now, Taurus, like you’re just going through the motions. We all hit these phases. It’s tough because there’s nothing tangibly ~wrong~, you’re just not feeling it. The Four of Cups asks you to keep a gratitude journal (either literally, or at least in your mind) this week. Consciously notice all the good things around you. Don’t deny yourself the pleasure of seeing this.
GEMINI: FOUR OF WANDS
Onwards and upwards, Gemini. We’re in your birthday season now, so anything is possible! The Four of Wands is a “well done” card, congratulating you for all you’ve accomplished so far and promising that now is when the real progress truly starts. It’s time to step up to get to the next level. Promotion, a new job, education, travel, moving, upgrading your living situation—all are in the cards. Get busy succeeding!
CANCER: THE MAGICIAN
The Magician brings creative magic into your world this week. This is a truly inventive, communicative, and entrepreneurial card that urges you to take your talent and make something of it. If you’re thinking of applying for a dream job or a promotion, pitching an idea, creating something unique, or even starting your own business, this is the week to do so. Creative energy isn’t constant, so use this surge wisely! Create!
LEO: SEVEN OF PENTACLES
No matter how long or how often you’ve done something and enjoyed it doesn’t mean you always will. Things change. We change. Time brings familiarity and sometimes contempt for what once was treasured. The Seven of Pentacles reveals you might be feeling ready to end a role, relationship, or situation. Don’t suppress these feelings. Explore and test them. Might it be that this ~thing~ has run its course and you’re ready to embark on something new?
VIRGO: QUEEN OF CUPS
You’re a rational and intellectual person, and you value logical, practical processes and analyses. But this week, the Queen of Cups asks you to pay more attention to your gut instincts and intuition. Just because you can’t apply the scientific method to your emotional response doesn’t mean it isn’t valid. If you ignore your feelings, you’re discounting a valuable source of information. Pay attention to how things make you FEEL this week.
LIBRA: THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Embrace change, Libra! Get ready for a transformational seven days. The Wheel of Fortune is a playful, dynamic card about activating one change and watching it create a ripple effect across your whole life. Even if you remain still, the Wheel of Fortune will bring change and drama your way, so you may as well take action yourself. Just make one change. Then sit back and watch the domino effect do its thing.
SCORPIO: PAGE OF SWORDS
It’s time to make your mind up, Scorpio, because this half-hearted energy is starting to get tired. The Page of Swords brings clarity and fortitude this week, and you must use it to make a decision, execute it quickly, and move on from this crossroads. Evaluate your choices. Question the conflict or hesitation you feel. It’s probably just (understandable) nerves or self-doubt. You face this choice for a good reason, and now it’s time to commit. Have faith in yourself and make a bold leap.
SAGITTARIUS: TWO OF PENTACLES
Jupiter is your ruling planet, and that means you are naturally lucky, energetic, happy and that you welcome abundance. Good, because the Two of Pentacles promises abundance is coming your way this week! Expect new opportunities, fresh faces, potential collaborations, interesting invitations, and plenty of fun. Say “yes” to everything you can this week. You can narrow your commitments down later. For now, enjoy the ride.
CAPRICORN: TEN OF SWORDS
Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and walk away. The Ten of Swords is a clear and signal to move on from a scene of pain and trouble in your life. Don’t give it any more energy or attention—withdrawal is the answer. This won’t be sad or hurtful. It will actually be liberating and empowering. You’re taking back control! Just imagine what you can do with all your time and energy now you’ve moved on.
Justice is a powerful card for you, Aquarius, because you are the zodiac’s truth-teller. You’re a natural humanitarian who truly wants to improve society. Something has provoked you recently, and you’re ready to move from research mode to action mode. You’re going to stand up and advocate for a cause you believe needs attention. You can do a lot of good here!
PISCES: THREE OF CUPS
It’s party time, Pisces! (Not that you need a prompt from the tarot to let your hair down…) The Three of Cups is a reminder that life is short and we’re here to experience as much of the world as we can. You can’t be at your best unless you feel rested and optimistic. So go make that happen. Have fun! Then come back and kick some ass again.
