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 DEVIL
If you’re willing to take responsibility for the outcome, then you're free to do whatever you wish. We all possess free will. The Devil is a powerful reminder to take ownership of our actions, even if they lead to unfulfilling results. Remember that even if one decision goes wrong, there's always another choice to make tomorrow. Everyone has a past, and everyone has a future. Live how you want to, accept the consequences, and keep moving forward.
ARIES: THE HERMIT
The Hermit is the tarot’s taskmaster, sweeping in when you need to focus on something difficult and complex. Concentration is required, so block out unnecessary distractions this week and focus. Only you can resolve this. And the satisfaction of figuring it out, finding a solution, following it through, and seeing results…well, it will make it all worthwhile.
TAURUS: THE EMPRESS
The Empress is your zodiac sign’s tarot card—both are ruled by Venus. This card represents the best things in life (all of which are free): love, sex, family, nature, happiness, and creativity. All your favourite things! This week, invest in whatever makes you happiest right now. There's no need to spend a fortune or try too hard. The best things are right here.
GEMINI: SIX OF CUPS
Ready for a blast from the past? I hope so, because one is knocking on your door this week. The Six of Cups is all about nostalgia and the return of something, someplace, or someone who you once held enormous affection for. This is a happy reunion! Maybe it's time to turn an ex into a friend. Maybe an old friend wants to get back in touch. Maybe a family member is planning a reunion. Maybe a new job is open at your old workplace. Be open to the past this week.
CANCER: SIX OF WANDS
Congratulations, Cancer, because you’ve been doing great recently. You're working hard, making progress, and doing your best, even when no one is watching. Well, it turns out the universe is watching, and it likes what it sees. The Six of Wands encourages you to reward yourself for a job well done. Plus, it promises that there’s even more to come. Take it to the next level! Whatever your goal is, have faith in yourself and go for it.
LEO: FIVE OF WANDS
Leo, the stress continues! But not for much longer, because you've identified the root cause of this tension. Basically, something needs to change, and you’re already on your way to changing it. Adapt, adjust, ask for feedback, change your expectations, and try a new approach. The Five of Wands shows that change is needed, even if it feels uneven and stressful. Just keep going with an open mind, because you’re almost through.
VIRGO: KNIGHT OF CUPS
Ready for some fun? Good. The Knight of Cups brings a whirlwind of pleasure and joy into your life this week, as long as you let it in (do NOT tell it to come back later, Virgo). Put aside your tasks and duties and make room for a good time! Romance, adventure, travel, socialising, and partying are all on the table. Do what makes you feel good. Go to places that inspire you. Hang out with people you love and like. Have a blast!
LIBRA: FOUR OF CUPS
You don’t need to try so hard, Libra. Everything you need is already right under your nose. The Four of Cups urges you to look again at the people, places, roles, and opportunities already in your life. You are somehow overlooking the very things that can do you most good. Refocus. Recalibrate. Imagine you're watching your own life from the outside—try to see it from another angle so you can spot the hidden gems. You've got this.
SCORPIO: ACE OF PENTACLES
A little windfall might be coming your way this week, Scorpio, whether that's a raise, a prize, or a gift. Keep your eye out for opportunities. Better still, go put yourself in the running for a few things you like the look of. The Ace of Pentacles is a lucky card. Even if you don’t win right away, there’s a chance that something you begin this week could bring in major rewards down the line.
SAGITTARIUS: ACE OF SWORDS
Truth is a strong theme in your life. You are known, Sag, for being brutally honest - even rude at times (usually accidentally!). You get away with it because you’re adorable and there’s no malice behind your unfiltered statements - you just say what everyone is thinking. You’d be great on reality TV, you know. Get ready for a big conversation that might take a few turns. Say what’s on your mind anyway. The truth is better out than in.
CAPRICORN: THE MAGICIAN
The Magician is my favourite tarot card. It represents creativity, talent, entrepreneurship, and making something of a natural strength. This is you all over! You are a self-starter, a proactive individual who wants to rely on your own strengths to get ahead. If you’re not already, now is a great time to consider starting your own business. If you already have one, then dream up a new launch. Creativity is flowing.
AQUARIUS: THE TOWER
Don’t fear The Tower! It just means that something you need to remove or release from your life is going to topple over this week. The rubble will be easier to clear than the structure was, so this event is doing you a favour, even if it feels like a shock. Deep down, you know it's time for this thing to go. In the back of your mind, you were already wondering how to move on. Well, now you can. Don’t look back. This is a new dawn, and you are liberated from whatever was holding you back.
PISCES: ACE OF WANDS
Pisces, are you ready to introduce a new hobby or activity into your weekly schedule? The Ace of Wands is a call to action to start studying, learning, practicing, or doing something new. Take a class. Learn a skill. Go on an inspiring trip. Take a vacation. Try yoga. Introduce meditation to your nightly routine. Whatever it is, take something that interests you and make it part of your schedule. You will feel the benefits right away.
