You don't need to know the difference between a three-card and a Celtic cross spread to get the most out of a tarot card reading. All you need: your Sun sign! Here's what I do: Shuffle my tarot deck and pull out the cards in order from Aries to Pisces, plus one general card for everyone so that you can get specific advice around your personality. Let’s go!

A GENERAL CARD FOR EVERYONE: THE HANGED MAN

We all get stuck inside our own heads from time to time. Sometimes you have to change your point of view in order to see how you can move forwards. The Hanged Man urges us all to examine the areas where we feel stuck and look at it from another angle, through a different lens, and with an alternative perspective. The answers lie out in the world, not within your own mind. Think outside the box.

ARIES: THE STAR

The Star is a card about blessings and good fortune, Aries, so you’re in for a fantastic week ahead. All it asks is that you A) focus on something you want to happen and B) make clear progress towards manifesting that thing for yourself. Make a baby step, and the universe will reward you with the opportunity to take a giant leap. Good fortune is coming your way, but you need to show it where to go.

TAURUS: SEVEN OF SWORDS

Trust doesn’t come easily to you, Taurus, because you observe too closely, think too deeply, and know how fragile, flawed, and fickle other people can be. The shady Seven of Swords asks you to use your prudence and wisdom this week and steer clear of potential drama. If you’re TOO open, vulnerable, or exposed this week, others might take advantage. You know who I mean. Keep to yourself let this shade pass you by.

GEMINI: ACE OF CUPS

People often don’t associate you with romance, but they’ve got you all wrong, Gemmy. You actually love romantic escapades because you get to play out a fantasy and practice your infamous flirtatious charm. The Ace of Cups sees a new love entering your world (or if you're already coupled up, this could be a new friend). It could be a creative and dreamy water sign (Cancer, Pisces, or Scorpio). Go ahead and dive into this relationship, because it has great potential.

CANCER: NINE OF WANDS

The longer that you stare at this problem (without actually doing anything about it), the bigger, uglier, and scarier it’s all going to seem. You are literally petrifying yourself into paralysis right now. So, the Nine of Wands is here to rub your back, tell you it’s going to be okay, and kick you in the direction of the obstacle you need to overcome. I promise you that you can do this, easier and faster than you think. It’s not as bad as you fear. Get it over with!

LEO: NINE OF PENTACLES

You’re known for living in the moment, Leo. Your spontaneity suits you because you’ve got the charm and intelligence to pull it off, even when you make bad decisions (most weekends…). However, the Nine of Pentacles comes calling this week and you’re feeling like you need to make some long-term, robust, financial, and career-focused plans for yourself. Where are you heading? What do you want? How can you make it happen? Get to work. You can design the life of your dreams, and it starts here.

VIRGO: ACE OF PENTACLES

Slow, steady, controlled movements are always your game plan, Virgo. Acting rashly, without knowing all the information…ugh, the mere thought of it gives you the ick. So, do what you do best this week: Make a careful plan of attack to go after a long-held ambition in the realm of work, money, home, or health. The Ace of Pentacles blesses whatever long-term investment you make this week with success and prosperity, so choose something good!

LIBRA: EIGHT OF SWORDS

You’ve been going around in circles regarding something you want to be different, but at the same time, you don’t want to do anything different yourself. You wish you had a magic wand you could wave to just fix everything! Well, the Eight of Swords suggests that you can do exactly that. You just need to change your mind. Adapt your outlook. Adjust your expectations. When you feel differently, you’ll act differently, and things will turn out differently—it’s a chain reaction. Work on your mindset this week.

SCORPIO: QUEEN OF CUPS

Emotions feel heightened this week, and your feelings are running even deeper than normal. And you're already the ~deepest~ sign of the zodiac, so we’re talking record-breaking levels of intensity here! The Queen of Cups asks you to nurture and protect your wellbeing this week. Breathe deeply and slowly, rest, and take good care of yourself. Everything is okay. No need to panic or act recklessly. Take your time, absorb all of the information, and talk about it. Be careful, because your emotions are not always to be entirely trusted.

SAGITTARIUS: THREE OF CUPS

Sagittarius, I’m going to make you very happy with this prediction: It’s time to PARTY. The Three of Cups brings good vibes to your world and gives you total permission to do whatever TF you want. You only live once! Call your friends, make some exciting plans, and live this week to the fullest. Make some magical memories.

CAPRICORN: NINE OF CUPS

What a lovely week lies in store for you, Cap! You deserve it. The delightful Nine of Cups swings by to grant you a wish. Something you have longed for has the potential to manifest in real life this week. Make sure you have a goal and that you do something to make it happen, and the rest will follow. Don’t let your daydreams remain in your head; bring them forth and activate them. You deserve a major break, and it’s coming.

AQUARIUS: PAGE OF WANDS

You're no stranger to spontaneity, Aquarius. You tend to live in the moment and go with the flow. It’s going to be a really busy week ahead, because lots of new invitations and opportunities are flowing your way, and you’re probably going to get involved with most of them. Not everything will turn out to be something (or someone) with long-term potential, but it’s all worth a try. You've got nothing to lose, right? Look out for exciting and energetic fire signs (Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius) too!

PISCES: THE MOON

The Moon is a powerful card of mystery and illusion. It serves as a message to stay put and take a pause. You don’t yet know everything you NEED to know before you can move ahead in the right direction. Important information will surface this week, and it could change your mind and outlook. Don’t make any major moves without doing your homework, asking questions, and digging out some research. Look deeper.
