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: TEN OF WANDS

You’re working too hard bb, so take a load off and come sit down for a while. The Ten of Wands is the tarot’s workaholic card, and it warns that all work and no play is not the way to go. Check your Google Cal and clear some space for you time. You’re no good to anyone if you’re spent. Get your life force back by chillin’.

ARIES: FIVE OF CUPS

Warning: this week is going to feel weird, Aries—you can thank the grieving Five of Cups for that. Don’t stress: This isn’t about the future, it’s more about an echo from the past. Old wounds sometimes flare up, and the scars itch. This is one of those times. Acknowledge that feeling, and then let it pass by. It can’t hurt you now.

TAURUS: THE FOOL

You’re a deliberate and thoughtful person, and it takes you to a while to draw conclusions because you spend so long ruminating on all the possible outcomes. Well, that hard work has been done and this week, you’re ready for the ~big reveal~ of your plans. Ta-daaaah! The Fool sees you starting a new project, feeling full of optimism, and courage. Frankly, you don’t care what anyone else has to say about this. It feels amazing to be finally on your way!

GEMINI: SEVEN OF COINS

A complicated and long-term piece of work comes to a natural pause, and now that you have some time to review your progress, you’re no longer so sure you want to continue. The Seven of Coins introduces an element of doubt, but it’s not really a bad thing. You’ve been so immersed in the doing that you’ve lost track of WHY you started this project in the first place. Reconnect with your task. Figure out what changes might make it more relevant and meaningful. Then get back to work.

CANCER: SIX OF CUPS

One of the six million moods you possess (all of which can switch in a nano-second!): playful. The Six of Cups hints that this will be the dominant vibe of this week ahead, so fill your schedule with fun, witty, and amusing people, places and activities. What a holy-sh*t-that’s-good forecast: to enjoy yourself and bring your huge smile and loving personality with you. When you’re having fun, you’re irresistible, so who knows—romance might be in the cards, too!

LEO: THE SUN

Have you made vacay plans yet? If not, then this is a great week to get out the brochures and maps because The Sun is beckoning you to head towards a distant horizon. Having a great trip to look forward to is a sure-fire way to help you get through the uuugh end of winter. Knowing that there are warm, sunny and lazy days ahead will help you to knuckle down in the here and now. Make your 2020 vacay something special. Start planning it this week.

VIRGO: PAGE OF SWORDS

Some people don’t *get* Virgos, because they take your Page of Swords-esque façade as the whole story. That vibe is slightly frosty, standoffish. But underneath, we all know how supportive, kind and generous you are. So if you don’t want to make the wrong first impression this week, then check your Resting Bitch Face at the door.

LIBRA: SEVEN OF CUPS

You are a hugely imaginative and romantic person, and you love getting lost in (usually sexy) daydreams. The Seven of Cups hints we might have to send a search party to bring you back to reality this week, Libra, such is the power of and lure of your imagination. Whatever it is that you’re dreaming about, ask yourself why you can’t manifest it in your life. Invest in making a dream come true. What better use of your energies is there?

SCORPIO: THREE OF CUPS

It’s all celebrations and congratulations this week, and you’re *feeling yourself*. The Three of Cups comes up when we’re in a great mood. And you know what? Life is good. We’re not here forever, and the world is full of magic and pleasure. Prioritize what makes you smile, and you’ll make others’ lives a little more fun too. Spread these good ~vibes~ and they’ll last all the longer.

SAGITTARIUS: SIX OF COINS

The Six of Coins represents karma and suggests you’re due a reward for previous good deeds. When we give our time, resources, or energy freely, the Universe takes it and transforms it into something positive to give back to us later. And that time is now. Look forward to some surprising and lovely treats, compliments, invitations, and opportunities. Say yes to everything, because you’ve earned it.

CAPRICORN: TEN OF COINS

One of your many talents, Cap, is planning and organization. You love setting goals, breaking them down into bite-size pieces, scheduling when you’ll tackle them, and creating tactics to do so. The Ten of Coins sees you in that kind of mood this week: You’re laying down some ambitious plans for yourself, whether in your professional or personal life. It makes you feel secure to know that there’s a master plan. So do your scheming—it’s important and valuable.

AQUARIUS: NINE OF WANDS

You are one of the fixed signs, which means you were born in the middle of a season and therefore possess the innate qualities of persistence, stubbornness, and paying attention to the detail. You like to see things through, basically. Good, because the Nine of Wands asks you to make one final push on a project or task that has been, frankly, annoying AF. There’s one last obstacle to overcome, and it arises this week. Don’t scream, you’ve got this—and once it has been dealt with, you’re home and dry, bb.

PISCES: TEN OF CUPS

You love living romantically (candlelit baths, writing poems, blah blah blah) and the Ten of Cups reveals this week will be positively dripping with feels. It’s like you’re starring in your own Piscean rom-com, and it feels wonderful. So, indulge all of your fantasies. Invoke every charming and whimsical ritual in your box of tricks. If you’re single, cast your spells to manifest a new love. If you’re partnered, then shower boo with affection—it will be more than reciprocated. It’s a love fest, so have fun.
