Get ready for a new week (Picture: GettyMetro.co.uk)
It’s a heck of a week for your emotional wellbeing. You might feel super sensitive, stirred, and moved by things which normally wouldn’t bother you. Stay cool, stay cautious, and stay hopeful because this too shall pass.
Stick to what you know, seek solace in comforting rituals, places and people. Make home a sanctuary and bed down, staying cosy.
Let the tarot give you a little advice for how to make this week go smoothly, happily, and without any major extremes.
March 21 to April 20
Meaning: You might lead you down an well-trodden path of an old regret or grief which still has emotive echoes in your headspace.
Instead of playing the scenes or recriminations over and over, talk about it. Seek support and an outlet to express yourself. If you do, you will be understood and sympathised with – and perhaps this lets you, at long last, forgive yourself and let this event lie dormant now.
April 21 to May 21
Tarot card for Taurus for this week: The Lovers
Meaning: You might be left feeling exposed to a temptation or a wrong-doing pathway that feels irresistible, although you know it’s wrong.
The Lovers is a tricky card about inner conflict, temptation, and head vs heart choices. All you can do is understand yourself, Taurus, and acknowledge your feelings.
Know the consequences of your actions and consider if you’re prepared to pay the price – that really is the decider for you.
May 22 to June 21
Tarot card for Gemini for this week: The Chariot
Meaning: This week might see you throwing the baby out with the bathwater and latching onto a completely new bandwagon. Hang fire, Gem!
The Chariot is purposeful and bold, but you are already doing good, and you don’t need to ditch all of your plans and schemes. Build on the successes, weed out the failures and non-starters. Don’t destroy the whole crop, just do a little pruning. Temper your destructive impulse.
June 22 to July 23
Tarot card for Cancer for this week: Ace of Wands
Meaning: This week, you could be led to a totally new pastime, ritual, routine, hobby, class, trip, or activity, and that’s okay. You are ready for a new thing to get stuck into, just make sure it’s a positive, healthy, joyful addition to your repertoire.
Do something you’ve tried before that was fun and fulfilling. Don’t be tempted by any quick-win, possibly dodgy schemes that are all shiny and glittery but might have no substance. Pick something sustainable.
July 24 to August 23
Tarot card for Leo for this week: The World
Meaning: You’re likely to be focusing on the life cycles going on in your realm right now. The World is all about ebb and flow, endings which lead to new beginnings, the natural cycle of all things (to be born, grow, and then die).
All of our roles and relationships and situations follow this path. Notice where yours are at. Use your intuition and gut instinct. No action required, just observation. It will help you down the line to make shrewd, self-serving decisions.
August 24 to September 23
Tarot card for Virgo for this week: Ten of Wands
Meaning: You might be left feeling overwhelmed this week, Virgo. The Ten of Wands is about overwhelm, fatigue, burn out – all of which can be pre-empted and avoided with some conscious re-scheduling and self care.
Limit your load this week. Book nice treats to look forward to. Invest in being around positive, comforting people. Avoid the toxicity. Don’t overthink, stop doom scrolling. Bring in healthy, happy influences and activities and feel safe, secure, and positive.
September 24 to October 23
Tarot card for Libra for this week: The Star
Meaning: The emotional pull of Scorpio season and the eclipse Full Moon might make you truly tune in to what makes you happy, what you most desire, where you want to live, who with, how you want to spend your days, and what your purpose is. These insights are moving and powerful and you must act upon them.
The Star brings blessings and good fortune to all of the positive endeavours you activate this month and next. Invest in the most precious ones!
October 24 to November 22
Tarot card for Scorpio for this week: Two of Swords
Meaning: Focus your attention on an outstanding decision that you’ve put off and avoided. Perhaps a cross roads where you have remained static because you don’t honestly know which path ahead looks best.
It’s time to use your intuition and gut instinct to make a decision. The cosmic events will help you, they will stir up your true feelings and needs. Pay attention and use them to guide you.
November 23 to December 21
Tarot card for Sagittarius for this week: Ten of Cups
Meaning: You might be feeling ultra passionate, romantic, and in the mood to cement relationships, take things to the next level, commit, propose, make promises, and fall deeper in love!
Follow your heart, Sagittarius, because it knows where you want to be, and who with. These feelings are irresistible and they are leading you to a happy-ever-after, as shown by the loving Ten of Cups.
December 22 to January 21
Tarot card for Capricorn for this week: Page of Coins
Meaning: This week might see you re-assessing your recent past and seeking insight, life lessons, and wisdom. When the emotions have died down it is useful to return to the ‘scene of the crime’ and extract a new, positive perspective, a narrative you can live with.
Go back, think it through, be objective, see it from others’ POV. Take on what you need to know and can use in future.
January 22 to February 19
Tarot card for Aquarius for this week: Page of Wands
Meaning: You’re possibly feeling a little scattered and chaotic. You are usually very cerebral, put together, and in control of your emotions, your Air element serves you well. This combination of cosmic power from Scorpio season and the eclipse Full Moon, however, unties some of those bindings and lets you loose.
Don’t worry, don’t try to suppress it, don’t overthink. Know this is just a phase, a blip, a moment in time. Acknowledge your feelings and then let them pass by. Don’t do anything drastic or make major decisions… ride the week out and regroup.
February 20 to March 20
Tarot card for Pisces for this week: Queen of Wands
Meaning: You might awaken your lust for life, need for speed, wanderlust, creativity, passions, sense of adventure… and you should take heed. Life is for living, not just surviving and ‘getting through it’.
Make plans which meet the demands of those fantasies and daydreams, set yourself up for a new quest, book wonderful outings or trips, satisfy the itch! These daydreams are your to manifest.
