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.
Basically, if your bank account is not ready for a full tarot reading just yet, this one should help tide you over for now!
A GENERAL CARD FOR EVERYONE: THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE
This week is about some fast-paced change coming everyone’s way. The Wheel of Fortune card is a powerful totem of transformation and asks you to pick one pivot point in your life to focus on. The wheel will start to turn, swiftly gain momentum and create a ripple effect across your whole life. This time next Monday, you might not feel quite the same!
ARIES: THE CHARIOT
Any travel-related plans or activities brewing or happening this week, Aries? The Chariot hints you’re either on the move, planning a move, or dealing with something to do with your personal transportation. Keep at it, and keep going, because this is exactly what you’re meant to be doing. We all need to take control of our literal physical location and direction in life, and you’re on the case.
TAURUS: THE MAGICIAN
You’re in the mood to select one of your talents or strengths and make more of it, career-wise or financially. The Magician is the tarot’s entrepreneur and advises you to start something solo, or as a side-venture–something which you’re good at and others are willing to pay for. Making money is one of your top favorite things to do, and you know how to commodify a talent. Get to it.
GEMINI: TEN OF CUPS
You’re in for a very romantic week ahead, Gemini, so I hope you’re in the mood for love. If you’re single, look out for a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) and if you’re attached, then arrange a particularly magical date night. Ideally, make this happen someplace around water–be that the ocean, a lake or river, a pool or spa, even a hot tub! This card wants to make some waves in your love life.
CANCER: TWO OF SWORDS
A decision hangs over you, which you’ve long avoided making, and this week is crunch time! The Two of Swords asks you to look at all the possible outcomes of this choice–the good, bad and ugly. Then, make an informed decision and execute it promptly–no more procrastinating. Move on with confidence because you ARE going to do the right thing, and momentum will swiftly be regained.
LEO: THE EMPEROR
The Emperor is a power card, showing that if you focus your intentions, you can move mountains. You need to take ownership and responsibility for making your ambitions a reality–no one is going to do this for you (and you don’t want to share the limelight or rewards anyway!) Start boldly, then carry on, and the progress you can make will honestly astound you! A BIG week lies ahead, so make the most of every minute.
VIRGO: FOUR OF COINS
We can all get into ruts we know we should move on from… and yet… well, it’s familiar, and you especially love your comfort zone. The Four of Coins asks you to identify such a stuck place in your life right now and bravely step away from it. You’ll feel immediately better, and new opportunity will almost immediately flow back into your life to replace whatever you were worried about losing.
LIBRA: FIVE OF SWORDS
People can be such dicks, and this week, your nerves are reaching their very last shred. The Five of Swords shows you in conflict with people around you (conflict is Libran kryptonite, so this especially is hard for you to deal with.) Maybe it’s with family, friends or colleagues, but whatever it is, it’s been tough. The key here is to let the negative feelings go. Some battles cannot be won–they just drag you down. Identify if and where this is happening, and cut ties, yield, walk away, call a truce–whatever you need to do to move away from the drama.
SCORPIO: KING OF SWORDS
A total snack of an Air sign might be sashaying into your love landscape this week, Scorpio (hopefully it’s a Gem because you two have especially hot chemistry, but it could also be a Libra or Aquarius too.) Sparks will fly, you’ll feel like you’ve known them forever, and the talks will last long into the night. This is a person who’s an intellectual match for you, and even might feel like someone you have to work to impress through your banter. So enjoy the verbal sparring and whatever else comes with it ;).
SAGITTARIUS: SIX OF SWORDS
Departure of some sort awaits you this week, Sagittarius–where are you thinking of heading off to? It doesn’t have to be a physical place–it could be a new role or relationship. The Six of Swords sweeps in when it’s time to move on, and you’re readier than you currently believe. So, pack your bags (metaphorically or otherwise) with confidence, this IS the right move.
CAPRICORN: THREE OF COINS
You’re the zodiac’s hustler, and there’s no one more ambitious or conscientious than you. Which is an especially great trait to have this week, because the Three of Coins shows that more responsibility, maybe a raise or promotion too, is headed your way. Others have noted your dedication and talent, and think you’re ready to step up a notch. Put yourself in the pathway of opportunity, and rewards will follow!
AQUARIUS: KNIGHT OF CUPS
Whatever your love life sitch is, you can make it even more warm n’ fuzzy this week. If you’re single, head somewhere new and exciting, someplace with a creative edge, and that ranks high on the social charts (has everyone you know ‘grammed it? Great, go there.) If you’re in a relationship, then plan a surprise for your partner, someplace new that neither of you has been to before. “New” is the key word this week, and if you embrace it, then love will flow in.
Temperance is a powerful tarot card that sweeps in when we’re unbalanced in some way. Where have you been overdoing it? It’s time to regain your equilibrium and come back to the center. You may have been working too hard (or not enough), investing too much in one particular person (or avoiding someone else), partying 25/7 (or hibernating away some beautiful weekends.) Identify where there’s an overspill and adjust your priorities to even it out.
