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 SUN

The Sun is the tarot’s most positive card. It can bring us all a little joy and happiness in what feel like dark and troubling times. There’s always a silver lining somewhere, and your ~homework~ this week is to try to find it. Make a list of what you're grateful for, or jot down heartwarming stories. Surround yourself with as many positive influences as you can.

ARIES: STRENGTH

Hardship brings out the best in you, Aries. You’re a natural warrior, after all. The Strength card brings you opportunities to flex your emotional ~muscles~ and build up your personal resilience, perhaps setting an example to others. Show us what true strength looks like.

TAURUS: KNIGHT OF CUPS

Romance is never far from your mind, Taurus—you’re ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, after all. This week is no different. The Knight of Cups brings a new boo, or a surge of passion for an existing S.O. Enjoy. 😘

GEMINI: FIVE OF COINS

Being free and active are your biggest priorities in life, Gemmy, so right now just SUCKS. The Five of Coins shows that you feel a loss over your changes in circumstance, and you’re struggling. So reach out to your loved ones. Don’t face this alone.

CANCER: KING OF SWORDS

You’re making long-term plans right now, Cancer. The King of Swords is helping you find the right perspective, helping you use the lens of hardship to prioritize what’s important to you. Get your plans in place. They WILL be needed.

LEO: FIVE OF WANDS

Stay cool, Leo. Someone, or something, is in danger of ruffling your fur the wrong way, and you’re NOT in the mood. The Five of Wands asks you to get some emotional distance from whatever’s riling you up. Identify what’s bugging you, and steer clear.

VIRGO: THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE

What goes up must come down, and vice versa. The Wheel of Fortune shows that your world is in flux, and you can’t control it. I know that makes you anxious, Virgo, but the sooner you adjust to going with the flow, the better you’ll feel. Resist the urge to micro-manage, and wait to see what unfolds.

LIBRA: QUEEN OF WANDS

The Queen of Wands is a dynamic, direct, and brave character who goes for what she wants. Whatever you’re doing this week, go big or go home. Conserve your energy and withdraw from unimportant tasks. Then, you can focus on making a difference where it counts.

SCORPIO: THE TOWER

Stressful times might just get a lil more stressful this week, before a sense of calm re-emerges. Be ready to hear some news or information that kinda your mind. The Tower is a card about unexpected revelations, ones that can change our lives. While shocking, these changes are (rest assured) always for the better in the long run. Better to know the truth, and better to know it now. You can handle it. TBH, you might actually even enjoy the dramz, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS: JUDGMENT

Few people know what a deep thinker and natural philosopher you actually are, Sag. Judgment sees you reflecting on the past. You’re in the mood to look back before starting over. But before you do, take a minute to process everything you’ve been through over the past year (not just the past few weeks). This is important.

CAPRICORN: THE CHARIOT

The Chariot represents journeys—but not necessarily physical ones. Maybe you’re realizing you’ve outgrown your current location, home, job, and you’re ready to move on. Maybe you’re giving yourself the space to process the emotional journey you’ve been on. Whatever it is, there’s no rush. Let things unfold.

AQUARIUS: JUSTICE

It’s easy, when we’re under pressure, to look for people to judge or blame. Justice asks you to lead by example and show compassion to others. If friends gossip, don’t join in. Speak sense and prioritize kindness. You’re a diplomat this week.

PISCES: SIX OF COINS

Caring about other people comes naturally to you, Pisces. The Six of Coins shows that you’re in a generous mood right now, figuring out how you can help those who need it. Power to you—we need more of you, and you WILL be rewarded for your efforts down the line. The Universe is watching, and you’re one of the good guys.
