Theme of the Week: 5 of Pentacles
We’ve been bogged down by the things that have caused us hardship — whether mentally, physically, or emotionally. Right now is a time where many take stock of the past year or years and start to contemplate regrets and loss. Try not to forget the wins too. But, while you may not be able to turn back time or go back and change the way something transpired in the past, you always have another chance to make a change for the future. Being on the outside has given you perspective, and that is something no one can buy or control. You may never have come to the new conclusions and revelations you have if it wasn’t for how things have worked out thus far. It doesn’t mean you need to stay in this place — actually, quite the opposite. I’m seeing that this should be the end of your long, tiresome walk. But only if you make it so. You know where you need to go and what you need to do, now all that is left is to just do it.
Your Card: 5 of Swords
Capricorn, it is time to say goodbye to all those things that need to stay in 2019, 18, 17… you already know what I’m talking about! Every year you bring something with you into the next that you really should have left behind. Well, this is the year you finally do it. I’m telling you right now, it is not an option this time around. It will seem tough at first, but won’t be anything compared to how things will unfold if you continue dragging all that muck with you. Take what you need and leave the rest. I’m hearing you need to make room for the new, to replace what no longer is serving you. It is as if you have a full closet of clothes that are two sizes too small. You’ve grown out of them. You can’t wear them. And because they’re there, you don’t have enough room for anything new. So why are you holding on to all of this stuff you’ve outgrown, Cap?
Your Card: 7 of Cups
I’m seeing many beautiful gifts coming your way, Aquarius. The season for giving is not over for you! Something very special still has yet to come. This is something you have been dreaming about for some time now. In a way, it always felt like a pipe dream and never seemed like it could be real. But, it will be, and quite soon in fact. There is a theme this week of leaving things behind in order to move into a better place. This could be a way of thinking, a person, a situation. It will be very individual to everyone. In order to reap the full benefit of what is coming to you, you must release a long-held belief or mindset. Get ready to stop dreaming and start living!
Your Card: 8 of Pentacles
You are so focused on your home life that it may be affecting your work, Pisces. Try to leave your domestic problems at home and job problems at work. Mixing the two will only begin to overwhelm you and they really have nothing to do with one another. It is only when you bring your problems with you that they begin to snowball into something much bigger and you start losing control over the narrative. Others do not need to be involved in your business. If you find yourself having a difficult time, keep your head down for now and seek professional counsel if you need to talk to someone. This will ensure office gossip stays to a minimum and will end up relieving any unnecessary extra stress that could result from confiding in a co-worker or friend. I am also hearing for you to focus on one issue at a time. Take care of one thing fully before moving onto the next or attempting to fix everything at once.
Your Card: King of Wands
You are typically the one who puts others in the hot seat, Aries. But this time it may be you who has to answer the hard-hitting questions. You put on a good front, but I’m feeling like deep down something about this has you shaking in your boots. You wear the cloak of confidence well, but whoever is doing the interrogating can read you like a book. They know what to say and how to say it to extract exactly what they’re looking for now. You might think you are too clever for them, but you also are assuming you know what it is they’re trying to get out of you. In actuality, they are looking for details they can use to prove a point or agenda they already have in mind — one you may know nothing about. This will be tough to anticipate so rather than trying to strategize, consider the saying: “The truth will set you free.” Worry less about the outcome being in your control. What materializes from this is leading somewhere impossible for you to anticipate.
Your Card: The Empress
Full Chill Mode: Engaged. Taurus, you are having either the most comfortable or the most lavish New Year week, ever. And whichever way, good for you. But did you really even doubt it? Likely, no. You did what you needed to do to make it happen. And manifest, you did. Hold on to this feeling of capability and use it as a guide for the rest of your year. Realize and acknowledge the great power you have within you to accomplish whatever you set out to do and turn your dreams into checks. Whether that is money checks or goal check-offs. You are one of the lucky few that can achieve their dreams while standing firmly on the ground and that is indeed a huge feat in itself. You don’t have to suffer or lack to do great things. All you need to do to keep this going is to believe in yourself and use the immense power that is firmly in your hands at this time. I am also hearing from you, though: If you don’t use it – you lose it!
Your Card: The Star
Big things poppin’, little things stoppin’! That is the theme to your 2020 New Year week, Gem. And that is just how you like it — always making a splash. I’m seeing your name in lights. This could be a new project taking off, an unexpected win in some area of your life, or simply a strong, new gusto overtaking you and motivating you more than ever to reach some of your most treasured life goals. You’re in a place of wanting success at any cost. I love the fire fueling you right now, but I have to say, I really don’t like the attitude. You aren’t going to ever feel the true fulfillment of success if you sacrifice anything that is morally important to you to get it. I’m feeling like I need to yell this again for the Gem’s in the back! DO NOT COMPROMISE YOURSELF FOR ANYTHING! You will not get what you want and it will only create instability within yourself. Even though it seems frustrating, take the long road. In the scheme of things, you will get so much more out of it, keep your sanity (mostly), and more importantly, keep the genuine light in your heart intact.
Your Card: The Lovers
This situation is so integral, Cancer. It is like you are just on the other side of something you have no idea about. You are on one side of the door, and this person or this big — I’m hearing life-changing — situation is on the other side. You can’t see it. You can’t touch it. But you might already have a feeling it’s there. You just can’t prove it yet. It IS there and it is something that you are being connected to divinely. There is no disconnection here even if it may seem like it at times. You are being navigated through. There are no mistakes with this now. I’m seeing that this is such a beautiful gift, but rather than it being given, it will be presented to you as an option. It won’t be something that you stumble into or feel forced into. It is a choice you make or don’t. This could change everything, so take your time and take stock of as much information as possible before making a final decision. Even if you receive pressure from the other party, don’t feel as if you need to give a quick answer. You have value and they know this. They will wait.
Your Card: Knight of Cups
It has been a long road, to say the least Leo, and this has been a long time coming. The big news is either making its way to you or from you, now. I’m seeing two fish going in opposite directions, so it looks as if this is a double-edged sword in some way for you. I feel in a sense that you are happy, elated even, and in another, unsure or nervous. Many mixed emotions going on here. You want to draw something closer to you that you’ve held at a distance for some time. This is something I see that you care very deeply for but perhaps have never outwardly shown quite how much this meant to you. “Still waters run deep” I’m hearing. You would climb the highest mountain and swim the deepest sea at this point, which is great because you might have to do just that in order to get what you want. I’m hearing that someone needs to be convinced or expects to be shown a grand gesture in order to be swayed to take steps back toward you. Love knows no bounds and in this case, Leo, you shouldn’t either. The more you put into this now, the more you’ll get out of it. Even if things don’t work out how you want, what you do receive you will find to be more than worth your efforts.
Your Card: Page of Swords
Virgo, I see the Page swinging into the clouds with vigor. He is fighting a monster that doesn’t exist outside of his own mind. You are making problems now where there aren’t any. This is stemming from an unconscious fear or something you do know, but don’t want to admit to yourself. It will hit you like a ton of bricks, then get ready for your body to make moves before you’ve even processed anything in your mind. Everything in you knows what you want, even if logically you are unsure if you should go for it. Sometimes the smartest thing to do is not let a fleeting opportunity slip through your fingers. Don’t worry so much about the consequences now. Just give in to the moment and have fun. This isn’t likely to be as serious as you believe.
Your Card: Queen of Pentacles
You are quite contented with what you have, but it seems like there is so much more going on outside of you, Libra. I’m seeing that you could have feelings of FOMO, but is it really FOMO if you’ve been there and done that already? Perspective is reality. Enjoy where you are in this moment and develop your own, new traditions to enjoy. Once they see what you’re up to, you might find that those who are where you once were will be the ones who feel like they’re missing out. Keep your long-held traditions in your heart. Don’t feel like you have to throw away your whole past in order to step into your future. Nothing is being released or thrown away now. Rather, it is being compartmentalized. Nothing is keeping you from the things you hold dear. They are still there waiting for you any time you need them.
Your Card: The Fool
I’m hearing that you gotta let go, Scorpio! You have got to learn to leave the regrets and agonies of the past behind you. Stop holding on to all that crap. It will do you no good in 2020. It did you no good in 2019. Stop ruminating and start living happier and freer. Release all the baggage and let yourself frolic with the lightness of a feather. Go outside and reintroduce yourself to the beauty and wonder in every blade of grass and little forest creature. The radiance of the sun’s rays on a cold winter day, the privilege of a full refrigerator and a heated home. It is beyond time for you to take on a permanent attitude of gratitude. Make it a point to find the goodness and grace in everything you see and encounter. It will change your life, miraculously.
Your Card: 4 of Wands
I’m seeing a surprise for you is in store, Sag! Either someone unexpected pops up or you are planning on making a special appearance. Whichever way, it will be full of love, fun, and a more-than-welcome homecoming. I’m hearing the Spice Girls song, 2 Become 1. I am usually not too stumped when these things come up, but this time it may apply in a way that is personal for some of you. If you are stumped as well, I recommend listening to the lyrics to see if they apply. It won’t be for everyone, but hopefully, most of you will get the gist! I am also hearing, “Happy wife, happy life!” When things are joyous in the home, you feel most at ease, contented, and fulfilled. Expect all of those things this week, Sag. It is set to be one you will look back fondly on for many years to come.
