A GENERAL CARD FOR EVERYONE: THE TOWER

It feels like something BIG is going down this week, something dramatic and unexpected, so hang on tight because it might be a wild ride. Whatever kicks off, know that it's happening for a reason and the ground is being cleared of false or toxic energies, readying for a new beginning. Let it all go and prepare to move forward on firmer foundations, feeling purged and primed for action.

ARIES: KING OF SWORDS

Whatever you’re currently feeling stuck on, seek some professional help or advice this week. The King of Swords is a wise, experienced character who can help you out. Why carry on struggling when someone else probs already has the answers and expertise you need? Take a short cut and get someone's support.

TAURUS: ACE OF COINS

Most things start small and take a while to grow into something significant or satisfying, but that shouldn’t put you off from investing in them. Use this week to plant some seeds that can blossom into something worthwhile down the line. The Ace of Coins hints this is likely connected to your professional and financial realm–training, networking, pensions, savings, etc.–and is a long-term project.

GEMINI: TWO OF SWORDS

Stop stalling and make a choice, Gemmy! If you can’t get your cosmic inner twins aligned here, then just pick a side and go with it, whatever it is. The Two of Swords sweeps in when we’ve lingered for too long at a crossroads, helping us get to the heart of the issue and remove all the debris and clutter clouding our judgment. Take a fresh look, make a choice, and go for it.

CANCER: THE EMPEROR

Power: We all have it, in some way, shape or form. What's yours? Consider this, Cancer, because The Emperor is asking you to draw on and use your personal power to manifest something important in your life. You and you alone can make this happen, and if you focus with intent… you can do just about anything right now. Pick a priority and pursue it with confidence. You’re on fire!

LEO: PAGE OF COINS

The Page of Coins is the tarot’s patron saint of students and unless you’re literally involved in studying (which it’s a good omen for, BTW), it asks you to reflect on a learning curve in some area of life. All too often we think of challenges as difficult and draining, rather than seeing the strengthening and self-improving benefits they offer to us. Reflect on your progress, acknowledge the lessons, and see the future potential, too. You’re on an upwards path.

VIRGO: KING OF WANDS

Roll the dice and bet big! The King of Wands is a risk taker and brings some of that bold energy to your life this week, so use it well! Gambling is part of life: we have to take chances because we don’t know exactly how anything is going to pan out. Remember that, even if things go wrong, you can always make another move.Few things in life are set in stone. And inaction is no less risky, it’s still a move. So, make one. The stakes are worth it.

LIBRA: THREE OF COINS

This is a great week to ask for a raise, offer to take on more, try for that promotion–anything that signals an upwards step and will bring you greater rewards and recognition. Others value you, Libra, and are ready to grant you a chance to prove yourself to them. The Three of Coins asks you to look to those with influence, and show them what you've got.

SCORPIO: SIX OF WANDS

Failure is not an option, Scorpio, and the universe is right behind you, backing your every move. This powerful energy is a super-charged boost to your efforts, but short-lived, so make some power moves this week and use it to propel you onwards. The Six of Wands is like getting a cosmic high-five, permission to go for your heart’s desire, and a promise that you can achieve close to anything right now. Dream big.

SAGITTARIUS: THE MOON

Very few people realize what a philosophical soul you are, that you love ruminating on the mysteries of life and the big unanswered questions. The Moon puts you in one of those reflective, pondering moods this week, so chill out, tune in and let yourself go on a mental journey of self-discovery. Who knows what you’ll find or finally understand, but it’s something valuable, and useful. Drift away, then come back and tell everyone all about it!


CAPRICORN: THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE

You’re in the throes of change, and though it may feel uncomfortable sometimes, don’t cling on to what's comfy. Let go and roll with the waves, because they’re taking you someplace good, promise! The Wheel of Fortune is a transformation card, and shows that change is afoot in your life, whether you resist it or not. This time next week, a lot might be new or different, but you’ll look back and smile. It’s going to be alright.

AQUARIUS: FIVE OF COINS

Don’t stare at the past, otherwise you’ll head back to that energy, and you don’t want to do that. The Five of Coins shows up unexpectedly to prod you into thinking about something you regret or have lost. We all get stirred by the echoes from our past, but you have to take control and, while acknowledging your feelings, trust that this is all a journey and you have moved on. Don’t go backwards–keep your eyes on your bright future instead.

PISCES: THE MAGICIAN

What are you up to, Pisces? You’re such a creative character and this week, you have The Magician in your corner, so you’re definitely brewing up some new ideas! Use this magical card’s energy to manifest something from your imagination–be it a poem, a drawing, an outfit, a room makeover, a business plan–whatever it is, it can make money! Your imagination knows no bounds and if you can share the output with the world, you might find you’ve struck gold!
