You don’t need to know the difference between a Three Card Draw and a Celtic Cross Draw 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 take out the cards in order from Aries to Pisces, plus a general card for everyone so you can get specific advice on your personality. Let’s go!
A GENERAL CARD FOR ALL: THE WORLD
The World is the last card of the major arcana of the tarot, and it represents the truth that every end is the embryo of a new beginning. Life is cyclical and there is no final destination. Take a break this week and think about the elements of your life in this way. Where are you nearing the end, halfway through, are you continuing to build, or are you starting? Recognizing the many phases you find yourself in can help you give the appropriate time, energy, and consideration to each one.
ARIES: SEVEN OF SWORDS
You are such a healthy and open person that sometimes you cannot recognize the shadow in others. Too often you get burned or heartbroken by fiery, jealous, or sneaky people. The Seven of Swords asks you to look around you at this time, because there are people around you who are not very nice. Take a little distance, step back and raise your guard. Don’t let them have full access!
BULL: TWO OF CUPS
Love is in the air for you this week, Taurus, with the romantic Two of Cups. If you’re single, pay attention to the sexy water signs (Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio). If you’ve just been dating, expect things to heat up this week – go ahead and surprise them with something exciting. If you are in a long-term relationship, then this is THE week to rekindle that spark. Go big!
You are experiencing a real ~awakening~ this week, one that sheds light on recent events and your role in them. It may be time to let go of some old beliefs and let yourself evolve into a better version of yourself, so that you can find the right niche, a place where you will fit in and be appreciated. Stop trying so hard for people who don’t seem so bothered or impressed – they’re not your people. Why give more to people who don’t appreciate what you’ve already given? I’m just saying.
CANCER: THE QUEEN OF PENTACLE
The Queen of Pentacles brings stabilizing, safe, secure, and strong energy to your world. This boost makes you want to tackle the tough issues you face in your areas of health, wealth, and home. What is out of control, broken or failing? Drag it out in the open, take a good look at it, and get to work. You can fix things, you can rebuild, you can renew. The Queen of Pentacles will give you ALL the resources, power and motivation you need.
LEO: EIGHT OF CUP
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That’s what the Eight of Cups says, and this card is right! Just because you didn’t accomplish what you wanted last time, so what? This does not mean that history will repeat itself. In fact, he’s unlikely to because you know what you’re doing. Go get your dream. You can do it this time around, I promise.
VIRGO: KNIGHT OF WANDS
Knights are the ~extreme~ of the tarot. They encapsulate the essence of costume, and for Wands that means this week will be all about travel, adventure, education, socializing, and creative projects or ideas. Let your imagination run wild and be sure to follow it wherever it takes you. Allow yourself to activate an inspiration. It’s not about work, self-improvement, or drudgery. It’s about having fun and enjoying your wonderful life.
SCALE: FIVE OF CUPS
Libra, don’t be sad. You have so much good in your life. Everything that upset you will soon be behind you and you will move on to better days. We all lose sometimes. We all face difficulties. We are here to experience all that life can bring so that we can grow and come out stronger and wiser. The Five of Cups shows that this sadness will soon be behind you. Start making plans for the future.
SCORPIO: THREE OF CUPS
Did someone say to party? The Three of Cups is the YOLO card of the tarot. It offers you permission to relax, get out, and have a good time however you want (Scorpios have their own ideas of what constitutes fun, like workouts, roller coasters, and extreme sports). Live a little, in fact, live a lot! Go out and devote time and energy to doing whatever makes you feel alive. The universe wants it!
SAGITTARIUS: PENTACLES PAGE
I still consider the Page of Pentacles as a student or an apprentice. This card asks you to go to the beginning of a subject or skill you would like to learn about and start learning. Maybe it’s something formal like a degree, maybe you’re just reading a book or watching a documentary. However, you inquire about what inspires you, it’s up to you. But this card is a strong signal that NOW is the right time. Who knows where all this could lead!
CAPRICORN: QUEEN OF WANDS
Have you ever thought about teaching or mentoring? You have your head on your shoulders and a lot to offer. The Queen of Wands tells me that you can take on a leadership role in any area of your life where you feel confident and flowing. It could be at work, in a course you are taking, in your social circle, in the community, or even in the family. Step up, be the one with the answers versus the one with the questions and lead by example. You are a great leader.
AQUARIUS: KNIGHT OF SWORD
Aquarius, they should never have crossed paths with you. They thought you were calm and laid back (which you are), and they didn’t realize how tough and determined you can be when you’re pissed off (which you are right now). The Knight of Swords sees you fight for your position this week and win the competition. They underestimated you, but they won’t anymore. It’s time to show them your claws!
FISH: THE TOWER
The tower is a difficult card about sudden and dramatic events or revelations that shake our world. These happen from time to time and change everything. It’s as if there was a “before” and an “after”. I know this sounds intense, but have no fear. It’s something that you already know happens on some level, because you’re so intuitive. There is something that seems to be fading, wrong or negative, and you may have already considered letting it go. Well, it’s time.
