Our resident tarot expert Kerry Ward breaks down what’s in the cards for you this week.
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 WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Who’s ready for change? Hopefully all of us, because this week’s collective card is the Wheel of Fortune, bringing its freshening, renewing, and transforming vibe. When working with this card, it helps to start the changes yourself. Activate something you know you want to happen, and then let life take over and get things moving. Expect the unexpected. Go with the flow. It’s going to be a really interesting week.
Aries, you are fearless, warm, passionate, and ambitious. You possess many strengths, and you're only gaining more as you live your life and learn more. Strength shows that you’re realizing this, and you're starting to appreciate the things that test you or take you out of your comfort zone. In fact, you’re starting to actively seek them out. Growth comes from discomfort. Once you ~get~ this, it all gets much easier to handle.
Don’t feel sad, Taurus, because whatever you’re mourning has already happened, the worst is over, and you can rebuild based on firmer foundations. The Five of Cups asks you to turn your gaze to the future, not the past. Where your focus goes, your energy follows. Make sure you’re making exciting plans and indulging in your favorite self-care pastimes. Treat yourself well and look ahead.
Gemini, you are way more competitive than your outwardly friendly, laid-back personality would have people think. This plays is to your advantage this week because the competition won’t even see you coming! When you really want something, you’re prepared to stand up and fight for it. This is one of those times. Hold your ground and don’t back down. You can win here.
Admiration and appreciation—Cancer, is there anything you love more? Not really, tbh. Well, I'm pleased to report that you'll see plenty of both this week. You just need to make sure you’re visible (get OFF that sofa), being your fabulous self. The Three of Pentacles shows that people with something to offer have noticed and appreciate your uniqueness. They’re going to make you an offer. You just need to be there!
The Queen of Swords doesn’t take any shit, so follow her advice, Leo. Ignore the haters. If they bring drama your way, you don't have to engage. This is a week to stand tall, follow your own path, and if others don't like it, leave. Be firm, decisive, and self-protective. You’re too precious to suffer fools.
A wonderfully romantic, passionate week lies ahead for you, Virgo, and you’ll be feeling your heart beat all week long. The Ten of Cups is a happily-ever-after card, so you can expect great things from your love life. If you’re single, look for sexy water signs (especially Pisces, since they’re your opposite sign). If you’re attached, try to make your partner smile and feel loved, and it will be reciprocated. Welcome to the love fest.
Don’t give up now, Libra, don’t you dare. Keep on keeping on. The Eight of Pentacles promises that the last stretch of this challenging journey is nearly done, even if it doesn't feel like it. It might feel hard now, but the rewards awaiting you at the end are going to be worthwhile. All this pain will be forgotten when you get there. So, get there fast.
Balance is important, but it usually has to be actively sought. Temperance shows that you’re feeling off balance right now, and there are extremes in your life that need tempering. You want to feel grounded, and it’s up to you to make it happen. Whatever there’s too much of, rein it in. Whatever you’re lacking, add more. Make some adjustments and introduce some changes this week, and the wonderful state of balance will be restored. Moderation in all things.
You’re such a fun, warm, and friendly person that you know everyone in town, or at least they know you! This usually plays to your advantage but this week, be a little cautious about who you’re hanging out with. Not everyone is as lovely as you are. Some people are jealous. Some are bitter. Trust your instincts and withdraw from anyone shady. Let them show you who they are before you fully trust.
Your presents are coming early this year, Cap, because you're having a genuine epiphany about just how much good you have in your life. The Four of Cups is a card about taking things for granted, overlooking the gems right under your nose, and generally feeling ~meh~ about life. This has been the case recently, but this week, that changes as you receive a wake-up call about just how lucky you are. Everything is shining a little brighter.
You’re so smart and curious that you’re always working on something, and you’re about to start something new this week. Whether you're reading a new nonfiction bestseller, listening to a stimulating podcast, or attending a new class, you're boosting your brainpower. The Page of Pentacles is the tarot’s student, and that's you this week. Go back to school, and have fun.
The Four of Wands sees you patting yourself on the back for a job well done—and others are noticing too. It feels good. You're proud of your achievements. Take this time to celebrate, and then signal that you’re ready for the next challenge. You can go further than you believe is possible, and this milestone should prove that to you. Have high hopes for yourself, Pisces, you’re just getting started.
