Get ready for a new week (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Halloween week is the time of year when the veil between the worlds of the living and dead is at its thinnest, so we may all feel susceptible to psychic nudges, messages from beyond, and gut instincts that pull us towards our authentic pathway.
There is the emergence of purpose, direction, and clarity this week. You will feel like you know what you ought to be doing. Don’t fight this insight. Build on it, expand it, explore it, and then work towards it.
Let the tarot guide you towards your clearest purpose right now.
March 21 to April 20

Tarot card for Aries for this week: King of Wands
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is King of Wands. This card represents your sign so this is about realising your potential, fulfilling a personal goal, building on an innate strength or talent. It may require a risk or a bold leap but you’re no stranger to those things.
Have faith in yourself and go for it, Aries! Travel, education, career advances, lifestyle or health regimes, and creativity are all well favoured. Do what you’re good at and take it further, take it as far as you possibly can!
April 21 to May 21
Take control of your destiny, Taurus (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Taurus for this week: Queen of Swords
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Queen of Swords. This card is about a solo project, a move towards greater independence and control, an intellectually challenging task or role that makes you step up to the plate, be challenged, and succeed.
You want to prove something to yourself, for yourself, by yourself. This is a personal growth and development nudge too. Testing your limits, your strength, your abilities is a worthwhile pursuit and you are ready for this. Step up and move into a leadership position.
May 22 to June 21

Tarot card for Gemini for this week: The Hermit
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is The Hermit. This card is about enlightenment, knowledge, philosophy and new, broader understanding. The more you know… the more you understand you don’t know.
Gemini, you are hungry for information, data, opinion, analysis, and insight. Seek it, chase it, embrace it. Attend lectures, classes, workshops, exhibitions, discussions. Research new ideas. Seek out the unpopular opinion and dissect it. Learn about yourself by pushing up against the wider world.
June 22 to July 23

Tarot card for Cancer for this week: Two of Cups
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Two of Cups. This card is about perfect partnerships, be they romantic, familial, work, creative collaborations or friendships. Some things are better done in a two, most creatives work in pairs as we all benefit from a sounding board.
Who are your twosomes in this life? Invest in them. If you don’t have what you need, commit to seeking it out. Promise yourself you will find your other halves and put everything into those bonds, because this is what most makes you tick: being a part of a relationship that works, that thrives, that delivers. You are the relationship whisperer, Cancer.
July 24 to August 23

Tarot card for Leo for this week: Six of Coins
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Six of Coins. This card is about charity, generosity, philanthropy, bigger pictures and good causes. It’s about living in a cycle of good karma, doing good and releasing positivity to the universe and then accepting that energy back in the form of unexpected opportunities and gifts.
It’s the best way to live and you kind of feel that right now. The world is a dark place sometimes and you want to make your corner a little brighter and better. Leo, you’re a star, so go shine.
August 24 to September 23
Lean on your support network this week (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Virgo for this week: Three of Coins
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Three of Coins. This card is about building a useful, beneficial, healthy, supportive network. Being around good people who have your best interests at heart and can actually help you.
It’s not about being a ‘taker’ because you give so much anyway, Virgo. This is about tweaking your relationship landscape to be a positive, bright and vibrant one. No toxicity, no dead weight, no shadow or shade. Focus on work, then friendship, then community. Bring in the new, leave behind the negative, revamp the old.
September 24 to October 23
No more procrastination (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Libra for this week: The Lovers
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is The Lovers. This card can be about love and romance (usually quite fraught or forbidden ones, so we’ll leave that be…) but also about conflicted feelings and decisions.
You are a massive procrastinator and you overthink stuff. As such, there is an overflowing inbox of unmade decisions to be dealt with before year end. Don’t take these into 2024, get them dealt with now. Make this a week to do your research, get advice, bounce options around, and come to conclusions. Gift yourself clarity.
October 24 to November 22
Go for what you truly desire, Scorpio (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Scorpio for this week: Nine of Cups
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Nine of Cups. This card is a beautiful wish pass from the Universe, granting you a dream come true. What will it be? Make sure it’s something emotionally fulfilling and inspiring, and that you feel might be out of reach (otherwise why would you need cosmic help).
In the coming 10 days, be sure to take overt, positive steps towards this dream. I believe you will receive unexpected help and guidance and good fortune to make it all a reality.
November 23 to December 21
An outside viewpoint can help things become clearer (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Sagittarius for this week: The Hanged Man
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is The Hanged Man. This card points to a long-running limbo, a stalled situation, a frustrating episode that you have trapped or thwarted by. It will end. It will unlock itself and you will be able to get past it.
How to do so? Look at the situation from other angles, other people’s perspectives, different lenses. Be openminded. Hear the other side, the opposing view, the alternative opinion. And in that will be the answer.
December 22 to January 21
Take a well-earned rest (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Capricorn for this week: Ten of Wands
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Ten of Wands. This card is a firm directive to rest, relax, chill out, seek deep rest, and rejuvenate. You have a long winter ahead, a lot to do, much to organise and achieve.
Right now, your key purpose is how to refuel and recalibrate ready for all of this. You can’t run on empty. You will risk the whole lot if you enter this season feeling low on reserves or fatigued. You need your full energy and strength. Seek ways and means to restore your vitality, mentality, power, and motivation. Take a week off and feel 100% better.
January 22 to February 19
Keep up the good work (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Aquarius for this week: Eight of Coins
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Eight of Coins. This card asks you to pick the project/task/goal/situation that is feeling hardest right now and make it this week’s focus. Put the effort in, push harder, give it your all.
A breakthrough is just around the corner but you won’t reach it if you give up or drift along now. This is the time to work harder and better and graft to get to that finish line. The results are worthwhile and your efforts will be rewarded handsomely. Keep going!
February 20 to March 20
Death is the card of change and transformation (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Pisces for this week: Death
Meaning: The purpose coming into view for you to work towards right now is Death. This card is the card of this week as we are in Scorpio season (its associated sign) and Samhain is here (its associated event). Embrace change, transformation, the ending of something in order for something new to begin.
Let things go and release the false or fading. Embrace the embryos and fresh energy you feel around you. Be receptive and open-minded. Be conscious of life cycles and ebb and flow. You are changing, your world is changing. Go with the flow right now.
