Theme of the Week: Strength
There are some difficulties you are trying to finesse and get through in the best way possible. In order to come to a true understanding, it’s time to be stern and strong, without being forceful and abrasive. There is a way to get your point across without hurting others or damaging relationships. It may not be easy, but it is doable. A favorable outcome is achievable for all parties involved if handled properly.
Your Card: 4 of Wands
You will be attending a gathering this week, Aquarius. This is something you have been anticipating, and which should be a joyous occasion. Try to let loose and revel in the positive aspects of this reunion with friends or family and not let negative thoughts or expectations enter your sphere. You will only ruin what could turn out to be a delightful time for yourself.
Your Card: Queen of Swords
It is time to move ahead with your own plans, Pisces. Sometimes the truth hurts, but that is not for you to worry about now. It’s kill or be killed and you are smart enough to make the move that is in your best interest. Letting your savage side out this week might surprise some, but you’ve had it in you all along.
Your Card: The Hanged Man
You could be put in an awkward position this week, Aries. Try to keep your wits about yourself and avoid putting your foot in your mouth. This could get tense. Luckily, this isn’t anything life-changing, just a bit of a snafu! Once the moment has passed, you’ll be fine — but this moment could feel like a lifetime. Prepare to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Your Card: King of Cups
You’re trying to play it cool, light, and breezy this week, Taurus. But, is everything really cool, light, AND breezy? Boiling under the surface is a million little things you’ll never acknowledge — or at least you’ll attempt not to. All it will take is the slightest aggravation to set off fireworks. Know your triggers, tread carefully, and work on your affirmations.
Your Card: 5 of Wands
This week is all over the map for you, Gemini. If you’re not running around like a chicken without a head, you sure are feeling like one! Your mind is scattered in a hundred different directions trying to make sense of things. There is one situation, in particular, you thought you had a better grasp on, but maybe throwing you for a loop. No sense in harping on things out of your control. Better for you to kick back, grab some popcorn, and simply observe from the outside.
Your Card: 7 of Wands
Intruder alert! Pesky self-doubt, negativity, and whatever else plague you, are creeping their way back into your thoughts this week, Cancer. Talk yourself down. You have the willpower and good sense enough to know the damage those notions can do when you let yourself believe them. They hold no ground at this time. Shoo them away without a shred of uncertainty. The mind may play tricks, but in your heart lies the truth.
Your Card: 2 of Cups
You’re trying to make nicey-nice this week, Leo. Healing a rift and soothing a situation is always good, but beware of crossing any boundaries. The other party may mistake this olive branch for something more, or possibly even underhanded. Think of it this way: Be nice, but not too nice. You want to send very clear, concise signals at this time so everyone is on the same page. Otherwise, you could very well find yourself in a major cluster f–k.
Your Card: The Lovers
There is a wedge between you and someone you care for quite deeply, Virgo. Although you feel a strong connection to them, there is still something that is putting you at a distance. You do have options, but what you don’t have is time. While the doors may be open to more than one possibility, they are closing very quickly. It was time to make a major move on this, like, yesterday.
Your Card: The Magician
You want to build, Libra! You want to make it now, the way you envision, and on your own! But, you also have no idea what you are doing, or how you’re going to do it. That’s okay! Know that you do have the ability to make this happen. All you need to do is figure out how. Not just how to do it, but how to make it flourish. This is completely within your reach. Just gather up all your tools and start experimenting.
Your Card: 6 of Pentacles
Life is a give and take, Scorpio. As you pay your cell phone bill — give thanks — because that means you’re blessed with a phone to pay for. As you begrudgingly wash the dirty dishes your partner left in the sink — give thanks — because that means your partner is still present to dirty those dishes. In every hardship there is ease. For you, this week is about being extra mindful. Not so much as it pertains to others, as for yourself. I’m being guided to send you a reminder: Seek, and ye shall find. Ask and ye shall receive. Knock, and it shall be opened.
Your Card: Page of Pentacles
It is a funny thing that we always seem to want what we can’t have, isn’t it Sag? You are lamenting the loss of a certain possibility which you held in high esteem, for quite some time. But, if you really wanted it, you would’ve made it yours by now. Of course, maybe you thought you had more time, or you didn’t think you were quite ready before. Either way, you could find this to be a little more difficult than anticipated to let go of. It’s okay to go through the motions and mourn. But, either decide to work through the stages of grief and let it go, or do something to get it back.
Your Card: Ace of Swords
Work hard, play hard has always been your motto, Cap. This is what it’s all about this week. I’m seeing an intense game of tennis. This isn’t just a friendly match. There is a lot at stake — reputation playing a large role. The winner not only has the upper hand but is proving a major point. The defeated leaves with his tail between his legs. Pick your challenger wisely. While you have as good a chance as any at coming out on top, this is one game you do not want to lose.
