Get ready for a new week (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
This week, we move towards Imbolc (February 1-2), the first Wiccan celebration of the year, the beginning of the end of winter, which means spring is in sight.
This is a big cosmic, natural, physical shift. Not only in terms of daylight and temperature, but also our own energies.
It’s time to start moving, hoping, putting things in place, taking action, researching the first steps towards your big goals this 2023.
Let the tarot guide you, this week, towards where your initiating, hopeful, planning energies need to flow.

Tarot card for Aries for this week: Eight of Wands
Meaning: It’s time to nurture your network. The Eight of Wands is about getting in the mix, connecting, reuniting, sharing, asking, collaborating, co-operating, supporting, and seeking.
Focus on your colleagues, the people with influence in your work world, the people who could mentor you or guide you, the friends who inspire you.
Remember, you are the sum of the five people you spend most time with. Make sure they are ones who uplift you!

Tarot card for Taurus for this week: Two of Wands
Meaning: Prioritisation is your theme tune this week ahead.
The Two of Wands is a reminder that you can’t do everything all at once. You spread your energies too thinly across too many things and none of them will go well (which will annoy and dispirit you).
So, focus. Spend this week scheduling your priorities this spring, making up mini milestones, and a plan of action that is feasible and realistic. And there you go!

Tarot card for Gemini for this week: Five of Wands
Meaning: There’s a bit of angst and confusion around what it is you want to do next, and that’s okay Gemini.
You’re just not totally clear on it yet, so let these conflicting ideas and voices flow. Listen in. Consider. Dispel or take on board. And keep moving. Where you’re at today is not where you’ll be at by the end of this week.
The Five of Wands is taking you on a journey of discovery towards what you truly want to do… enjoy the ride.

The Emperor asks you to be bold, take charge, do it your way, lead the attack, and be the decision maker. You are a powerful person and it’s time to exercise this power.
