Theme of the Week: Page of Wands
A long journey is not coming to an end, but rather moving into the next chapter. You have gone uphill, downhill, and even had periods of plateau. Instead of taking another step, it is time to take a big leap. This isn’t something you will decide. You will be thrust into it. You will have moments where it could feel a bit overwhelming and you might get frazzled and want to step backwards, but you won’t. In fact, you can’t. This is all positive, forward motion. There is nothing to be concerned about now. Let this path open up and bring what it will. There are many surprises along the way, but in the end, they are only in your best interest.

You’re feeling like all you do these days is work. That might be true, Sag, but don’t think of this as you would in a job working paycheck to paycheck. You are building something much bigger than that. This is a long-term investment of your time, effort, and love. This could have to do with your work and career, but I’m hearing that it could be relationship related as well. Continue to put the work in because the payoff is sweet. One thing to keep in mind: set clear and realistic expectations for yourself. Focus on short-term goals that build up into long-term goals. It will be easy to overwhelm yourself thinking too far into the future. Think more immediate gratification. You will be surprised at what you’ve achieved by the New Year.

There is something that you think you have to leave behind, but you really don’t, Cap. This is a choice. If you choose to bring it with you into your future, you will have to settle for the fact that it isn’t going to be how you may have originally envisioned it. Be flexible and open. There is so much good here for you and it has the potential to show up later on, if it hasn’t already. My advice would be to keep this around a bit longer. Don’t let go, but rather alter your relationship to it. Down the road, you will be grateful you did and you won’t feel so jilted.
Your Card: Knight of Swords
You’ve made an impulsive decision that you weren’t 100% about at the moment, but you went for it anyway, Aquarius. Things are moving fast and while there’s nothing you can do about the pace now, you can use your keen intellect and unique perspective to skew outcomes to your advantage. It is all about working smart for you this week. Communicate effectively, but don’t say too much either. You want to let others divulge as much as possible before you formulate a response. If you play your cards right, you have the golden opportunity to knock someone’s socks off.
Your Card: King of Wands
You know exactly what you want, Pisces. There is no reason for you to consider any other options. In this instance, it is not in your best interest to be flexible. Go after your goals. Do not compromise on this now, or you may find yourself on a perpetual loop with this very same issue down the line. State your case, and if others don’t understand, use your creativity to show them. Everyone learns differently. Some through visuals, some auditory, etc. Find what makes them tick and appeal through that sense. Simply making demands without explanation will not bode well for you now. Think outside the box.
Your Card: Knight of Pentacles
It feels as if your whole life just came to a standstill. You are stuck. I want to say that you’re running in place, but do you even have the motivation or the energy for it right now? It’s as if you can see everything you want so clearly and it’s so close, yet you can’t touch it. You have no way to reach your destination. You do, Aries, it just isn’t what you think you need to move towards. Hence, this brief pause. It is like the universe just stopped you, took you by the shoulders, and spun you around. As Google Maps would say, “Recalculating.” That is exactly what you are doing now. You’ll want to hold on to your original hopes, but get ready to get put on track to a future that’s much richer than you’d envisioned for yourself.
Your Card: The High Priestess
Face it. You have no idea what is going on right now. There are too many secrets, changes, and things happening on the DL for you to catch up. You try to know, you sometimes think you know, but you don’t be knowing. Sorry, Taurus. We’ve all been there. Rather than trying to absorb information by osmosis, turn things around by focusing on what you do know. You know how you’re feeling, what you’re doing, and where you want to be. Get it! Now is the most opportune time to get all the things you want and flourish. You have this beautiful opportunity for major growth and transformation. Make the most of it.
Your Card: Wheel of Fortune
Fate is intervening in your life currently, Gem. Things you have wondered about for a long time seem to be beginning to reveal themselves now. You won’t have all the answers yet, but you should start to get a good idea of the path opening up before you. Remember, you still have free will. You can choose to move this way and see where it leads, or not. If you are extremely torn and I’m hearing some of you will be, it could be a good time to go to a trusted reader and ask about the two life paths you have in front of you. I would steer away from reading for yourself as I’m hearing your own bias will likely get in the way.
Your Card: Queen of Swords
Some truths or information about long-held dreams are on their way this week, Cancer. Whatever this is, will give you a lot to consider and make you realize whether a step you’ve taken recently or one you’re considering taking, is truly worth its weight. There is old knowledge and new knowledge regarding this news you are to receive. You are being guided into taking a big step, or have been guided throughout this process if you have been working on it for a while. The roots are firmly planted and you are set to go in a very specific direction. For some of you, this will be very much welcome and what you wanted. For others, there may have been a caveat and things might not be unfolding quite as expected.
Your Card: Queen of Cups
Old habits die hard, Leo. Such is love, as well. You know this well, Leo. You’ve been holding a flame for what seems like an eternity. I’m feeling every emotion here — love, anxiety, sorrow, happiness, hope, regret, and the list goes on. There is a distinct sense of longing. This week love takes over and although it could bring up a lot of past conversations and imagined future conversations, you will ultimately move into the next tier of emotional maturity because of it. You’re experiencing growth now and no one ever said growth was easy. This has the potential to have moments of feeling torn apart and put back together again. But trust that your flame will be rekindled one way or another.
Your Card: 4 of Pentacles
Letting go is tough, Virgo. And it doesn’t look as if you are planning on doing it any time soon. I’m not hearing that you need to rush with this. Don’t expect that whatever it is you are vying for will be coming back to you in the immediate future, but I do see a glimmer of hope and revival down the road. Not very long, but not as quickly as you’d prefer, most likely. You do have the capacity for patience, which would be wisely utilized now. You may have spoken to others about this already, but regardless of their thoughts and opinions, you stay firm on your own. Power through, Virgo.
Your Card: The Chariot
I see you making some type of travel plans, but choosing between two places. They each have their own allure, but it looks as if one seems more like an exciting adventure, while the other has deeper emotional ties. I’m hearing you might be afraid you’re going to disappoint someone if you decided to take the lesser-traveled, more fun route. While you like to keep people happy, you can’t let others’ expectations dictate your life. Only go if that is what YOU truly want. If it isn’t, you will find a way to put them at ease. Remember to honor yourself and your needs.
Your Card: 3 of Wands
Enough is enough, and you’ve had it, Scorpio. You’ve packed up and left. This is something you’ve thought about for a long, long time and now it is finally happening. If you really are going to leave this time, though, there is no point in going if you are just going to take all that baggage with you. Either leave and start a new, fulfilling, happy life or stay and try to make this one the best it can be. It takes two, and although you have no control over how others act and react, you do have control over your own actions. Go back home and water your grass. There may be beautiful oak trees that have been waiting to push through to the surface.
