Theme of the Week: The Lovers
I’m seeing elements of a dream state happening now. Some of you are walking in a haze of fog, while others feel like they’re floating on cloud 9. But in neither state can you see clearly the road ahead. The Lovers gets mistaken much of the time for a soulmate card. It does denote a deep, soul-level connection. As well, this is a card of choices and outward distance. You have the opportunity to take a step back from a situation you are very close to now to decide if this is a rabbit hole you want to go down. It will be difficult to separate yourself because there is, in fact, a higher connection here. There is a purpose for this in your life — which often times means hard lessons come along with it. If you are open and willing to grow the deepest parts of yourself, reaching a place you possibly never knew existed, this is for you. Rest assured, the rewards will far outweigh the trouble. Growth sounds great at face value, but many of you may still not feel ready for this. If you are intent on staying in your comfort zone and maintaining the status quo, that is your prerogative to do so. But step aside, because you could be hindering someone else who is set to soar to new heights, in a major way.

Wow, Aries! As soon as I pulled this card, I felt a big burst of energy! It’s all GO GO GO for you this week! You do have a lot going on, but luckily, there is not too much conflict. It looks like everything is flowing in the same direction, so either all of your to-dos are in the same realm of business or they just happen to line up quite nicely for you. Luckily, this is big Aries energy, so you are totally comfortable in this organized chaos. There will be a point where you wonder what all this effort has amounted to, and why it isn’t as grand as you expected. When that moment arrives, keep going. That means you’re getting very close, just push it a bit more and you will be on your way.

“I’m here for a good time, not a long time!” is your current motto, Taurus. But, remember, you turn into a pumpkin at midnight so try not to wear yourself down too much. You long to live happy, fun, and carefree, but understand that being that way on the outside will not heal what you have going on on the inside. Support from friends and loved ones is always essential, but it takes more than blazing lights and loud music to put the pieces of your heart back together again. Try implementing some quiet self-reflection and see what comes up for you. This could help you really get to the heart of things and finally get past it in a healthy way.
Your Card: 9 of Pentacles
You are more optimistic than usual about the road ahead for yourself, Gem. Things seem to be falling into place for you, and you finally feel like you have everything you need. This has instilled a sense of confidence in your ability to be strong and independent. There is nothing you can’t do now, and you know it. You are really feeling yourself and coming to understand the importance and meaning of being your own, biggest supporter. You have always put on a show of independence towards others, but now you are finally proving it to yourself.
Your Card: King of Wands
You are RIGHT THERE Cancer. SO CLOSE. Yet, somehow, you are just missing the mark. Take a look at where you are and what you are doing right now. What seems off? What isn’t adding up? Take that knowledge and use it to plant yourself firmly. It is likely as simple as you are not letting yourself fully commit to your endeavor. If you are half in, half out — even 1/4 out — just say F-IT and jump with both feet in. You can always pull on the reigns later, but for now, you will never know the true value or potential if you don’t completely invest yourself. It is now or never and do or die.
Your Card: 8 of Swords
Are you strapped for cash? It looks as if you are feeling very restricted at the moment, Leo. This feels out of your control to an extent, but in reality, you are being a willing participant. Where there is a will, there is a way. The only question right now is, how strong is your will? Are you forcing yourself to live in ignorance or denial because you think it will make things easier, or you happier? Until you face this head-on, you will stay stagnant. You will be mediocre. Remove the blindfold, let yourself see what is right in front of you, and break what binds you from moving towards excellence. Only then will you truly feel and be free.
Your Card: 3 of Swords
A bout of doom and gloom will be bringing your energy down this week, Virgo. You are gradually being made aware of something in a situation you had perhaps thought was improving, or you had hoped to improve. This won’t last long, but it will be a bummer for the time-being. Rainy days encourage growth, so this would be a great time for you to be constructive with yourself. Use this as a learning experience and build upon it. Do not let yourself get dragged, or bogged down by your emotions. No sleeping ’til noon and no skipping workouts. Roll out and stay motivated! Be better!
Your Card: Page of Cups
Sometimes, you like to entertain thoughts or ideas that you know will never happen, Libra. And by never happen, I mean, you are 100% fully decided that you will never do these things. Yet, you still give others a glimmer of hope. It might just be because you’re bored, or you want to see how high people are willing to go when you say, “Jump!” A little forewarning: You may want to prepare yourself to get called out on your B.S. soon. Because by then, you will likely be in pretty deep. It’s all fun and games until someone figures you out.
Your Card: Ace of Cups
Scorpio, you are entering a new chapter of love with someone in your life. This could be romantic, platonic, familial, really any kind of love. A lot of the tough stuff is falling away and beginning to filter out. The great thing about this is that all that will be left is pure joy and love from the heart, no more of the other nonsense. This is just the beginning, so allow some time to get to a perfect place. Just as if you were cleaning a burnt pan, you have to let it soak, then scrape off the pieces little by little, layer by layer, before you can finally reveal the shiny, clean pan beneath that grimy surface, again. You know what lies under there, just have patience.
Your Card: 3 of Wands
Get out there, Sag! Just go. Yes, the road before you will have obstacles, and it will probably be long. It will probably be winding. You have been thinking and contemplating until you are blue in the face. It is now time to take action and simply, do. No more talking yourself out of it. Once you take that bold step forward, there could be a great and lovely surprise waiting for you on the other side. One that you would have never arrived to had you not risked it all. Leave what you must in the past and take what you will into the future.
Your Card: 5 of Wands
I see a lot of people trying to one-up each other, here. While you might think you have the best idea, product, or skills, so do 1,000 other people. You are going to have to figure out what makes you stand out in a crowd. If you don’t have anything distinguishable about you, now would be the perfect time to make an assessment and create something. This is going to be a huge deal breaker in your life. Once you crack this code, it could change everything for you.
Your Card: The Tower
Lighting strikes this week, Aquarius. An idea or an opportunity is coming to you that has the potential to turn your world upside-down. You are probably not quite sure if that is something that sounds very appealing to you, but transformation is always a good idea! It is always intimidating when trying something new at first, but it is never as bad as it seems. Be brave and let what needs to fall away from your life go, so that you can start fresh and sanguine, without any baggage.
Your Card: 9 of Swords
Pisces, you aren’t feeling very supported right now. But, consider that this could be because you aren’t letting anyone support you, not because no one wants to. There is a silver lining in this situation that you aren’t seeing and it is causing you to fret somewhat unnecessarily. Beneath it all, you do have all the support you could ever want or need. For you, just knowing and feeling secure in this knowledge can be enough for you, you don’t necessarily need to use those resources. That could be really confusing to others who don’t function in the same way. Try not to set your outlook to emo-mode. Letting your friends bring a smile or two to your face will be refreshing. Let yourself have that.
