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 MOON

Hold on—you don’t yet have all of the information you need right now. The Moon is a card of mystery, and it always advises you to err on the side of caution. The whole picture is yet to emerge, and if you take action based on what you know now, you’ll be heading in the wrong direction. This week, seek information, and ask questions. Find out what you think you need to know before you make any major changes.

ARIES: TWO OF WANDS

You’re not yourself atm. In fact, you’re feeling indecisive. This might not be your ~usual look~ Aries, but it makes sense rn. The Two of Wands shows that you don’t HAVE to make any decisions right now. Let things unfold. It’s not all about action right now.

TAURUS: KING OF COINS

Coins represent earth signs, so the King of Coins is all about you. His energy is about taking control of your material world: money, career, health, and home. Are you on top of things? Do you feel secure? If the answer to either is “no,” then this is the week reassess. What will help you get what you need?

GEMINI: THE HIGH PRIESTESS

You’re rarely still or quiet, Gemini, so it feels W-E-I-R-D not to act. But right now, let it be. The High Priestess brings a sense of solitude, calm, and inner wisdom. She wants you to drop out and tune in to your inner voice—you know, the one you don’t usually listen to. Now’s the time to gain important insights and increase your self-awareness. This week, challenge yourself to meditate and reflect.

CANCER: SEVEN OF SWORDS

Beware of scammers this week, Cancer. Not everyone in this world is as wholesome as you, and you know you love a good story. If in doubt this week, wait. The Seven of Swords advises caution and prudence. Don’t take what you hear on face value—do some digging and ask some questions. You need to be a little bit wary right now.

LEO: THE HIEROPHANT

Your faith and beliefs really, truly matter to you, Leo. The Hierophant sees you feeling conflicted about what, or who, you believe in. That’s okay—life is turbulent right now. Your journey is just beginning—let your beliefs unravel and then reform into something new.

VIRGO: THE WORLD

You are a ~thinker~ more than a ~feeler~. In fact, you’d make a great scientist, Virgo. This is this week’s mood: Virgo the scientist, the analyst, the fact-checker. The World has you looking at the big picture, and frankly there’s an awful lot to consider. So do your analysis, make your forecasts, and reexamine what you know.

LIBRA: TEN OF WANDS

Feeling stressed right now? Same. The Ten of Wands shows you feel over-burdened and overwhelmed, and you’re not alone. Try to clear away the ~noise~ and give yourself space to feel your feels. Delay anything that isn’t urgent. Take some time to yourself, and breathe easier.

SCORPIO: JUSTICE

People can suck sometimes, can’t they? Sigh. Well, Scorpio, please don’t retaliate, because you're about to be proven right. Justice shows that karma has been watching, preparing to step in and correct the balance. Hold tight and wait.

SAGITTARIUS: SIX OF WANDS

The Six of Wands is a positive card, promising success is just around the corner—you’re going to be celebrated, and rewarded. Great! Look for ways put yourself in opportunity’s pathway so you can amplify the good things due to you.

The Seven of Coins is like a time-out, a chance to pause and consider whatever you’re doing—and whether you still truly want to be doing it. If you’re not as ~into~ it as you were before, then why not do something else,? You’ve got a golden opportunity to reflect on your progress, and make some needed changes.

AQUARIUS: THE CHARIOT

We all need something to keep us on track, out of trouble, and focused on the positive— especiall you , Aquarius, because you’re a smart cookie and you get bored fast. The Chariot demands that you set yourself a juicy, stretching, inspiring challenge this week. You need a project, a direction, a goal. Dream something up.
