Your Weekly Tarot Card Reading, by Zodiac Sign

Published

on

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: THREE OF SWORDS

Gemini season is swinging, plus Jupiter has just moved into Gemini. No matter your zodiac sign, all of this Gem energy unleashes your most dazzling entrepreneurial, destined-for-success ideas. But the Three of Swords warns you to beware of haters. My advice: Be cautious about who you share your greatness with. Not everyone is rooting for you. Keep your circle tight and continue to be brilliant. You can move mountains this week.

ARIES: EIGHT OF PENTACLES

Aries, the battle is far from over. I know you might feel exhausted or even defeated right now, but you’re about to come back, stronger and more powerful than ever. Sometimes it’s darkest just before dawn, right? The Eight of Pentacles urges you to keep fighting. A breakthrough this week will show you that the prize is worthwhile and within reach. Show them what you’ve got.

TAURUS: FIVE OF CUPS

Something from your past will make you think differently about something going on in the present, Taurus. The past can be a teacher when we review events dispassionately and from a safe distance. Enough time has passed from this event that you can now look back and extract a useful life lesson. The Five of Cups reminds you not to dwell on it, but instead to analyze it for insight about a current situation. Learn from your experience.

GEMINI: PAGE OF SWORDS

In tarot, the suit of swords represents the element of air, so this Page is very much a version of yourself. He might represent your younger, more chaotic or undeveloped self that emerges when you feel defensive or threatened. Gemini, step in as an adult and take charge. There is nothing to fear here. Overcome your urge to run away from this situation and instead, stay the course and sort through the issue. You got this.

CANCER: NINE OF WANDS

The way ahead is not plain sailing, but it’s not as choppy as you fear, either. Start moving forwards, instead of clinging to the railings and staying where you think it’s safe. The Nine of Wands is a reassurance that the problem you’re worrying about is actually very manageable, and you will realize that as soon as you start taking steps to resolve it. Action always feels better than dreading and pondering your fate. Stop overthinking and start doing!

LEO: TEN OF CUPS

Leo, your love life is the center of attention this week! If you’re single and ready to date, then look out for a water sign (Pisces, Cancer, or Scorpio) who only has eyes for you too. If you’re single and happy to remain, so then make this week like a celebration of your independence and freedom—go wherever you want, with whomever you want, to do whatever you want! If you’re happily (or even not-so-happily) attached, then organize a grand gesture, thoughtful evening, or full-on date night.

VIRGO: SIX OF PENTACLES

Margie Rischiotto+Rider/Waite

You are the most helpful and supportive star sign (and even if it’s sometimes driven by an “I know best” mentality, it’s still a positive trait). The Six of Pentacles urges you to share your time, talent, and resources this week, because you can make a difference to so many people. Be generous and giving. Offer advice, be encouraging, troubleshoot, and give practical assistance if you can. You’re storing up so many good karma points!

LIBRA: FIVE OF WANDS

Margie Rischiotto+Rider/Waite

Trouble is often a sign that you need change. When things go wrong or conflict arises, it’s usually because something is no longer working and the dynamic needs updating. Libra, you’re super smart and objective, and you enjoy seeking solutions. Put your skills to good use this week and diplomatically unravel an issue, offer some solutions, and help set them in motion.

SCORPIO: THE WORLD

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

Something you’ve been working on for a long time is drawing to a conclusion. Be sure to savor this final lap and be ready to celebrate your success. And then what? Sometimes, coming down the mountain is as challenging as getting up it. Start to plan your descent and, more importantly, think about what mountain you’re going to climb next! The World is a significant card about the endings that lead to new beginnings. You’re evolving, growing, and changing. There is another new chapter beginning right now!

SAGITTARIUS: EIGHT OF CUPS

Sag, it’s always better to admit defeat. Better yet, look it in the eye, take away a lessons, and put your time and energy into a new challenge. The alternative is to struggle on, fighting a losing battle, and having to pretend that all is well. That sounds exhausting! The Eight of Cups promises that a brilliant opening is waiting for you, but first you have to let go of a no-win fight. It’s time to pivot your power.

CAPRICORN: THE HANGED MAN

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

Limbo sucks, I know. It’s so frustrating because you’ve made your sacrifices, done the right thing, put in effort… and still nothing has materialized. Well, take a break. Hang out a while. Go and do something else. The Hanged Man shows that you need to surrender to circumstances, take on a fresh outlook, change your mind, and try a new approach. You will need to take a pause to activate a different POV. Step back and rethink.

AQUARIUS: SEVEN OF WANDS

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

In my opinion, Aquarians are secretly the most competitive zodiac sign! This week, Jupiter in Gemini brings an entrepreneurial vibe. This is YOUR time to activate that sideline, ask for that promotion, or pitch that big idea. Go for it! You have all of the tools and now you just need to take the steps to make them real. The Seven of Wands shows that in two months, you could be well on your way to success!

PISCES: KNIGHT OF PENTACLES

Work hard, pay attention, and go the extra mile. The Knight of Pentacles is a hard worker, and he will bring you the required power and determination to get the job done. Why bother? Because the rewards are worthwhile and your sense of satisfaction is priceless. Sometimes it’s about being the quickest or the smartest, but right now, it’s about working the hardest. You can do this!
