Theme of the Week: Queen of Wands
The Queen of Wands comes out to play for MDW. With her sunny disposition, passion and quick wit, she is ready to show you how to kick off Gemini season right. There may be plenty of responsibilities to take care of, and keep those in mind, but first — shots! It’s time to enjoy yourself and let loose, but it’s also important to keep your promises. Hold yourself accountable. Prioritize what is important to you. While Gem season is usually a far cry from committal vibes, this week there may be something you are itching to make a deeper, more lasting commitment to. Dive in, because the water’s fine. This should be a creative and fun time. There’s nothing to be afraid of.
Your Card: Death
Death arrives at your door this week, Gemini. But, fear not. Death is simply a symbol of change. You are experiencing major upheavals in your life this week, ready or not. Better that you prepare yourself in whatever way you can so that you can deal with what is coming. Transitions are sometimes smooth and easy. They can also be difficult, and sometimes they are different than what we hoped for or expected. They say when you are going to be a parent for the first time, you can prepare all you want, but you’ll never be ready. Do your best, but this is likely the case for you this week.
Your Card: Ace of Cups
The Ace of Cups spills into your life this week, Cancer. In this case, it looks as if good fortune is finally rearing its head. This good fortune seems to be in spades, as it isn’t only in one area of your life which you are acquiring abundance. Lucky you! This is only the beginning of some wonderful and lucky times. Receive these gifts gracefully and humbly, but know that they are not something magical that just fell out of the sky. You are, in a sense, being rewarded for your commitment to unconditional love and effort. The universe likes the scales in balance.
Your Card: 6 of Cups
The 6 of Cups sweetly says hello to you this week, Leo. It looks like past relationships are coming into strong focus for you now. Fond memories may take over and you may even have a chance to recreate some sweet moments with someone special from your past. Be discerning of who and what you bring with you into your future. You want to move forward in the way that is in your best interest. Focus on creating a new beginning and a new ending this time. Do not try to repeat the past. As you have already experienced, that didn’t work out in anyone’s favor, and for good reason.
Your Card: The Chariot
The Chariot rushes towards you this week, Virgo. You are ready to dive head-in right now, the only question is which way to dive? You could be feeling a little torn and weighing your options. You know deep down what is best for you, though, do not try to rip apart every detail with sober mentality. Logic will only get you so far in this situation, then pure heart and intuition must take over. Spoiler Alert: You can see the ending to at least one scenario already. Is that the finale you’d be happy with?
Your Card: 10 of Wands
The 10 of Wands drags its feet your way this week, Libra. Things are feeling like a struggle, right now. Trust that you are getting there. You are making headway whether you can see the finish line ahead yet, or not. You are much closer than you might think. Keep pushing through and doing your best. Everything you are dealing with will pay off, and when they do, you will be that much more proud of yourself for it. Don’t be afraid to test your strength once in a while. “You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” – Bob Marley
Your Card: 7 of Pentacles
The 7 of Pentacles sits idly by you this week, Scorpio. You sit, wait, and ponder. You lament. Why? When? How? You want it all now and, yes, it is frustrating to wait. Patience is a virtue, we all know, but it doesn’t mean we have to like it. There is a situation that you are stumped with right now. You don’t know what else to do. But, Scorpio, not everything is instantaneous. Collect what you can in the meantime, but understand that just because you aren’t an overnight success, doesn’t mean you won’t be successful. Keep working and doing your diligence. You will clearly see what is working for you and what isn’t. Then, take it from there.
Your Card: 6 of Pentacles
The 6 of Pentacles visits you this week, Sag. The 6 of Pents is reminding you of your place in this world. Some would say there are two classes: the haves and the have-nots. These days, it is a bit more complicated than that. The question this card is here to remind you of, though, is who do you want to be? Where do you want your place in this world to be, and how do you get there? You need to have a plan in place before you can get anywhere, so it’s time you sat down and figured out what you really want — then go get it!
Your Card: The Star
The star lights up your path this week, Cap. Your way is being clearly illuminated for you. All you have to do is “follow the yellow brick road.” While the path of least resistance is being exposed and all signs say “Go!” it is still your choice whether or not you walk towards it. No one has to fulfill their “destiny.” People choose to walk down alternate roads all the time. Our true paths are not always going to be the easiest, or happiest along the way, but they will lead us to fulfillment and understanding in the end. Before you make your choices, try to consider the end game.
Your Card: 9 of Cups
The 9 of Cups is sitting pretty for you this week, Aquarius. This is a deeply satisfying week for you. You are being proven right, and what else is your favorite thing? It looks as though there are a plethora of topics or situations you have weighed in on recently that others are now coming around to. At times, you find it hard for others to understand you or take your ideas seriously, so it is nice to feel as if you suddenly have an exorbitant amount of validation come your way. Try not to let your head get too inflated!
Your Card: 5 of Wands
The 5 of Wands is headed your way to you this week, Pisces. There is so much going on right now — my head is spinning! Everything is all over the place and nothing is where it should be. What you need to do right now is take this apart one-by-one. Pick one thing to start with, figure out how to straighten that out in your life, then do it. Once you have one thing straightened out, then you can move on to the next. If you keep trying to tackle everything at once, nothing will get done. If you need a motivator, start with the smallest or easiest task to spark a little self-empowerment.
Your Card: Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles wanders your way this week, Aries. You’ve got dreams, you’ve got aspirations, and you’ve got motivation. But, where is the movement? I can see everything is at your fingertips right now, yet you’re dragging your feet. Something is holding you back from taking everything that is completely tangible right now and making it your actual, full-life reality. Where others get stuck because they don’t have a plan in place, or don’t know how to proceed, you are keeping yourself stuck out of sheer will. If timing is not right, that can be valid for you now, but if it isn’t timing, then what is it really, Aries?
Your Card: The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man gives an awkward wave from across the room to you this week, Taurus. Your season has come to an end for 2019 — so what now? As an Earth sign, the windy uproar of Gemini season isn’t likely your most comfortable, but you’re a champ. Give yourself some time to adjust and you’ll be okay. This week’s discomfort isn’t really about anything you’ve set into motion. It’s more about the season, interplanetary changes and recent full moon in Scorpio sending everyone in a tizzy. Situations may feel a lot bigger for you than it really is in the scheme of things, so keep in mind perspective may be skewed for the time being. Hang in there, Taurus!
