Zodiac tarot readings for the week ahead

Happy birthday Geminis! Tarot reader and teacher Nia True has a message for you that may not want to hear – but you can reap the rewards in terms of your personal well-being, if you do what needs to be done.

Meanwhile, Cancerians have got a message from the universe that absolution is on its way.

Whatever your star sign, scroll down to see your weekly tarotscope – a tarot reading based on your astrological birth date.

Gemini – III of Swords, King of Wands, The Sun

You might be feeling as though there are things that need to be overcome this week, Gemini. They may be current, or things from the past that are coming up in the present. Either way, don’t try and squash them down or ignore them, feel the feelings, learn the lessons being offered, because you’ll be stronger and wiser for it.

It may be that the learning being offered relates to the marshalling of your energy and motivation. This will be the key for you, to creating whatever you need to, in order to move forwards. The important thing to be aware of, is that we can’t progress without acknowledging and making peace with the past, so if anything is undone where that’s concerned, now is the time to attend to it.

These may not have been the things you wanted to hear, but the good news is that if you do what needs to be done, you’ll feel lighter, brighter and infinitely more capable!

Cancer – Judgement

If you’re in need of absolution, this is your sign from the universe. Whilst it’s important to take responsibility and to learn from our mistakes, how we allow ourselves to move beyond guilt, shame or regret also matters. What emotional burdens are you ready to lay down or release, Cancer?

Leo – IX of Cups

You’ve come a long way, Leo, and you’ve much to feel good about. If that doesn’t resonate for you, it might be time to revisit your expectations, including what you expect of yourself –are you being realistic? IX of Cups is considered by some to be the ‘wishing card’, so if you have a wish, this is the week to make it.

Virgo – IX of Swords

It’s no fun wrestling with our demons, fighting anxiety or waking in the night with a lurch. If this is the chapter you’re in, Virgo, know that all things pass. It might help to separate out what you know to be true, from what you are afraid could be. Notice what other possible outcomes might be…

Libra – IX of Pentacles

You’ve been working hard for a while, and now might be a good time to take a breath. Look around, see how far you’ve come, and allow yourself to revel in it. How you continue your achievements, and maintain what you’ve created is important, Libra, but so is slowing down to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Scorpio – VI of Pentacles

Where are you spending your time, energy and resources? Are you giving or receiving more? There is generosity in accepting help, or a gift, with grace and appreciation, as well as in giving, Scorpio. This week, notice whether your outputs and inputs are balanced – look out for opportunities for reciprocity, in either direction.

Sagittarius – Temperance

‘Moderation in all things’ is easy to say, harder to execute. Balance, however, is what’s called for this week, Sagittarius. Think of yourself as Goldilocks, looking for the porridge that’s just right – what does your ‘not too hot, not too cold’ look like? How might you create more of it in your day-to-day life?

Capricorn – The Devil

What habits and behaviours are keeping you from being your best self, Capricorn? And by best self, I don’t necessarily mean in relation to others – are you looking after yourself?

What does your self talk look like? Sometimes we can think that we’re treating ourselves, but we’re actually self sabotaging.

Aquarius – Page of Pentacles

You have opportunities to learn new things relating to money and home, this week, Aquarius. It’s not just about greater awareness, but also about taking action in alignment with what you discover. This is a great time for sowing seeds which, if nurtured, can grow into something significant.

Pisces – Wheel of Fortune

There is a season for everything. This may be a week for accepting that we can’t always bend things to our will, Pisces. Sometimes, you just have to wait for the right time, or the right conditions, to present themselves. So while you’re waiting, what can you do to ensure that you’re ready when the opportunity arises?

Aries – V of Cups

It’s important to grieve for what’s gone, or what cannot be, Aries; to feel all of the feelings and metabolise them. And when that’s done, it’s also important to move forwards, to honour what remains, what is and what can be. It’s a fine line to tread, but if you listen to your gut, you’ll know what to do.

Taurus – The High Priestess

You’re good at patience, and at biding your time, so this week shouldn’t present much of a challenge. Don’t mistake the need for receptivity – noticing what’s going on around you – for permission to be passive. What you become aware of, and begin reflecting on, now, could bear fruit in the future, Taurus.
