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: TWO OF PENTACLES
The Two of Pentacles is a great card signaling it’s going to be a busy, productive week ahead, perfect for manifesting. Are you ready? Abundance is the name of the game: You will find that the more you do, the more you CAN do. More = more. So, welcome in as many new ideas, people, activities, and opportunities as you can. Say "yes" as much as you can. Be busy. This is a going to be a great week.
ARIES: PAGE OF PENTACLES
Education is important this week, whether that’s formal studies, professional development, taking a class, or just listening to a new podcast. It's up to you! The Page of Pentacles just asks you to learn something, somehow. Feed yourself with information. Who knows where it might lead you?
TAURUS: THE DEVIL
The Devil urges you to focus on a key resolution this week, one that is about sacrifice, like giving up or replacing a bad habit with a healthier one. You will discover the willpower and determination to kickstart this change. The important thing is to change your environment and schedule so that this new habit is the default. Make it easy for yourself!
GEMINI: KNIGHT OF SWORDS
The Knight of Swords reflects your shadow side, your "evil twin". But this version of you serves an important purpose, and that is to get stuff done that needs doing — stuff that benefits you alone. Sometimes we have to serve ourself first, and sometimes that means being pushy, demanding, and assertive. It’s okay to unleash this side of you this week, Gem. Go get what you deserve.
CANCER: FOUR OF PENTACLES
I know it's only the second week of January, but don’t let 2023 become a carbon copy of 2022 in terms of your goals, interests, and activity. Shake it up! Be different. Let new ideas surface and take you forwards. Let go of past habits or beliefs. The Four of Pentacles is a message to do things differently, or you risk receiving the same results again and again. Be different this week.
LEO: ACE OF SWORDS
Truth. Honesty. Clear and direct dialogue that expresses something you’ve been bottling up and keeping to yourself. It’s time to express this worry or question and demand a response. The Ace of Swords asks you to prepare your opening speech; keep it factual and succinct. Then be ready to hear the other person's side and opinions. Listen without anger or judgment. Take your time to respond. This chat will make everything better.
VIRGO: NINE OF WANDS
Don’t worry that you can’t because you CAN, Virgo, I promise. Nothing ahead of you can stop you from making progress on your goal. The Nine of Wands is a big reassurance that you can handle whatever comes your way, with speed and grace. The obstacles are not onerous, and the rewards are generous, so keep on pressing ahead and facing whatever you come across. Head on. You’ve got this.
LIBRA: THREE OF CUPS
The Three of Cups is your kinda vibe, Libra. Party, chill, indulge, have fun, seek pleasure, and play. Do what you like doing best, and everything will fall into place. Sometimes you have to step back from the grind and do something just for fun. Life is short, and we’re here to experience everything. Your ruling planet, Venus, means you need little pleasure breaks regularly. Go indulge.
SCORPIO: THE FOOL
Scorpio, it’s all new energy this week. The Fool is the first card of the tarot and a symbol of new beginnings. Whatever new activity, adventure, ambition, or goal you want to start in 2023, this is THE week to do it. Maybe you don’t feel ready (no one ever does, really). Put all of those worries aside and just make that first step. Activate this journey and everything will start to flow.
SAGITTARIUS: FOUR OF SWORDS
Winter can be tough. It’s cold, dark, and difficult to keep up your usual Jupiter-fuelled levels of energy. The Four of Swords urges you to seek deep rest and hibernation this week. It’s okay to just be at home, cozy, quiet, and still. People can cope without you for a week! If you don’t heed this advice, you could find yourself burning out and running on empty. And then you will have to take even more time to recover. Just slow down and take it easy. You’ll soon be firing on all cylinders again.
CAPRICORN: EIGHT OF WANDS
Networking is an important part of your week. Nurture your contacts, spruce up your professional profile, reconnect with old colleagues, and reach out to people who are doing work that inspires you. Put yourself in the middle of inspiring groups. Ask for advice. Invite opinions and feedback. You will learn so much this week through communicating with others. It's going to give you plenty of career ideas for 2023.
AQUARIUS: SIX OF CUPS
Memory Lane is calling, Aquarius. The Six of Cups is an affectionate and nostalgic card that suggests you have been looking back at your past and the people, places, or activities you once loved but no longer have in your life. Why not? If there’s no good reason, then maybe it’s time to rekindle some of this stuff. Bring back a few old faves and enjoy rediscovering the things you once enjoyed so very much, whether it's reconnecting with a friend from school or trying out a childhood hobby again.
PISCES: EIGHT OF SWORDS
Are you a good friend to yourself, Pisces? Do you take good care of yourself? Do you talk to yourself kindly and patiently, and do you make sure you have what you need to succeed? We can all be cruel and unfair to ourselves, more than we would to anyone else. The Eight of Swords asks you to make a concerted effort to be your own best friend this week, and beyond. It will make a huge difference to your wellbeing.
