ARIES

(The Hierophant, King of Wands, Six of Cups)

Faith, adventure, and nostalgia. These are the three magic ingredients of your month ahead, Aries, and this feels very apt for December. The Hierophant asks you to draw closer to structures and organisations you believe in and want to uphold - be that religion, family, community or social causes.

The King of Wands reminds you to have fun, travel, explore, throw caution to the wind and let your hair down. Be spontaneous. The Six of Cups promises you’ll receive lots of blasts from the past; people and places you once held great affection for will return to your world. All in all, much to look forward to and revel in.

TAURUS

(Ten of Cups, Knight of Coins, Page of Cups)

Your relationships are front and centre this month, Taurus, with a major opportunity for romance in the air. The Ten and Page of Cups brings true love into your life, be that with the one you’re with (expect a ~next level~ progression) or someone new, possibly a sexy Water sign (Pisces, Cancer or Scorpio.)

You will feel loved and admired, and, with your Venus planetary ruler, this is JUST the way you want to feel. The Knight of Coins also reminds you to get done what needs to be done this month, don’t leave it all until the last minute, or you’ll spoil the good vibes and get stressed. Pace yourself. Get those to-do lists underway and tackled!

GEMINI

(King of Swords, Two of Wands, The Empress)

December will feel like a game of two halves, as shown by the optional Two of Wands. Both are important, and both are necessary. Firstly, it’s all work work work with the future-proofing King of Swords. You’ve got a lot going on (as ever), much to tidy up before the holidays, and a plethora of big ideas for 2022 that need researching and plotting. You’re in your element, being so busy and in demand.

Secondly, The Empress asks you to totally switch off from all of that (when you’ve got it done and dusted.) Seek pleasure with those you love, enjoy nature, rest and bask, be creative, get cosy at home and revel. Work hard, play hard. That’s the key to a merry December.

CANCER

(Four of Wands, Two of Cups, Eight of Cups)

Feels like everything you’ve worked so hard on, or been challenged by, will start to turn around and come up trumps this December, Cancer. All of your graft is going to pay off in a big way! The Four of Wands shows that hard work has been noticed and recognised, and rewards will follow. You’re on the up, and who knows where it could lead. Location changes and broader horizons are indicated by this card.

The Eight and Two of Cups shows that any setbacks or disappointments in love are going to be vindicated. Basically, better is on the way. Look out for fellow Water signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) and people you feel an immediate chemistry with. If you’re attached, aim high this festive season - thoughtful gifts, nice treats, surprise dates, festive cosy time.

LEO

(Seven of Swords, The High Priestess, Two of Swords)

Trust your gut, Leo, and let your instincts and intuition guide you towards the right thing, the best thing, the timely thing. The High Priestess is a powerful card about inner wisdom and knowledge, which shows there are insights and ideas waiting to emerge from your sub conscious. Don’t do what looks right ~on paper~, do what feels right inside.

The Two and Seven of Swords shows that there are two things you need to bring your gut instincts and hunches to. Firstly, overdue decisions. Choices you’ve avoided or worried about, and consequently not made decisively or confidently. Tune in to your inner voice and listen to what you should do. Secondly, people who are a bit shady or not entirely wholesome, or not good for you right now. Spot them and withdraw from them. There’s a few of these people about. Be cautious about exposing yourself emotionally or being vulnerable around them.

VIRGO

(Ten of Wands, The Empress, Queen of Swords)

You need to be a BFF to yourself this December, Virgo, and specifically lighten the load you’re carrying. The Ten of Wands reveals you’re working too hard, doing too much, taking on too many responsibilities, and putting enormous pressure and high expectations on yourself. Stop. Slow down. Streamline. Minimise.

The Empress wants you to invest a lot more in your own self care, relaxation, rest, wellbeing, and overall mental health. Do things which please you, with people who uplift you or make you feel safe and warm. Spend time being creative, walking in nature, listening to moving music, watching interesting shows.

Get festive with family. Be cosy. The Queen of Swords shows you need to do some puzzles, read some great non-fiction, take a class even. Feed your brain, and stop it looping and spiralling over the same old worries. You’re an intellectual. Feed your mind with nourishing stuff. Take ownership of giving yourself some focused and positive TLC this month.

LIBRA

(Queen of Coins, Ten of Coins, The Lovers)

Indecision and procrastination are old frenemies of yours, Libra, and The Lovers shows they’re in town again, and bothering you! Make your mind up. Understand WHY you’re not yet clear and take action to resolve the unanswered questions or doubts. Clarify and tackle the foggy bits.

The Queen and Ten of Coins combine to reveal this is about a long-term ambition around your career, finances, home, or health. You want to build for the future, to protect and develop something, and it means action is necessary in the present. It all starts here.
Get your priorities clear, understand what needs more questioning or clarity, create a list of pros and cons, make some big decisions. I can promise you that every ounce of action you take will be rewarded down the line. This is the right time in your long-term future.

SCORPIO

(Four of Coins, Queen of Wands, Seven of Cups)

This is a big push from the tarot to use your imagination to bring new ideas, energy, and adventure into your life this December! The Four of Coins is the ~shake it up~ card, warning of ruts and ‘Groundhog Day’ energy. You are ready to make some changes to your daily life and routines. The Seven of Cups asks you to daydream about this, to visualise your ideal lifestyle, and let your imagination roam. You can make anything happen - you are one of the strongest, most powerful signs. Nothing is beyond you, Scorpio!

The Queen of Wands shows that travel, inspiration, creativity, and lifestyle habits are a major part of the equation. New regimes, new hobbies, new activities, new outings and travel plans, new projects. All is on the cards, like a wonderful refreshment of your everyday life. And it’s you who makes the decisions here. This is like a blank sheet of paper, an invitation to introduce a plethora of fresh activity into your schedule, and feel energised and refreshed and renewed as a result. Get to it.

SAGITTARIUS

(The Emperor, Judgment, The Hermit)

A trio of major arcana cards which signals an important, maybe game-changing, month ahead! Are you ready? Firstly, The Emperor means you are certainly taking control of your life and destiny, putting your agenda at the top of the list. You are in ~boss mode~, taking no prisoners when it comes to making shit happen.

Secondly, Judgment reveals this is driven by a need to close one chapter in your life down, it’s fading or naturally ending anyway, and begin anew. You are conscious of this process, and want to accelerate it, as well as making sure what you’re beginning has the best chance of success.

The Hermit shows this is a solo project or endeavour. A serious task, taken seriously, and which lays the foundations for the next few years. It requires research, thought, and planning, and you’re in the mood for that. You are excited about what could lie ahead and happen next.

CAPRICORN

(Eight of Wands, Three of Wands, The Star)

A blissful time awaits you this December, Cap, full of parties, mingling, friendship, and family. Love is all around. The Star card is the cherry on the cake. It’s a dream-come-true card and asks you to visualise your ideal month ahead. Got it? Right, go make it happen my friend! The cosmos is backing you. You’ve got a wish to spend- use it wisely.

The Three and Eight of Wands put you in the epicentre of a social whirlwind! You’re in demand. There’s so much going on, and so many people who want to wish you well and be in your company. Make the most of this exciting and positive goodwill, and revel in the fact of your popularity. It’s nice to be needed and liked, and you’re going to feel VERY nice this festive season indeed. Say ‘yes’ to as many invitations as possible. Throw yourself into the throng. Enjoy it.

AQUARIUS

A major new beginning is on the cards for you this December, Aquarius, and it will be life-affirming and renewing, in every major way possible. The Ace of Cups shows it’s a ~birth~ of some kind - be that literal pregnancy, or a new love, friendship, pet, project, or role. Something heartfelt and magical.

This introduction creates a ripple effect in your life. Strength and The Devil combine to say that, basically, you feel like a better person because of this new energy. It makes you want to be better, do more, act kinder, try harder, live well. It makes you think about negative patterns in your life, and how to overcome them. It makes you spot traits that you don’t want to act on any longer, and makes you stop doing them. It makes you realise you’re a pretty uhmazing person anyway, and you can be even MORE uhmazing with a little focused effort. This feels inspiring and motivating. It’s time for a whole New You!

There’s something which isn’t working out in your life, as shown by the disappointed Eight of Cups, and the sooner you acknowledge that, act accordingly, and move on from it, the better. The Three of Coins and Six of Wands are waiting in the wings, wringing their hands and itching to get on stage. They need you to end the dud, and welcome them in, instead.

The Three of Coins shows that someone is admiring you and has a great offer for you. It will more than replace whatever the current disappointment is. It’s waaaaay better.
The Six of Wands shows that all of this has happened for a reason: to get you to this very spot, Success, joy and prosperity lie ahead, the faster you get rid of what’s not working, the faster this new story can unfold. It’s all ready to begin!
