Trust your intuition, Taurus. Being sensitive is a gift, but don’t let it overwhelm you. Pay particularly close attention to how you feel in the presence of new people you are interacting with this week, and that first instinct will tell you everything you need to know. No second guessing!

Leo: Ten of Pentacles Reversed

Money isn’t everything, Leo, and we all know that it certainly cannot buy you happiness. Carefully consider your relationship to your finances this week as you weigh the options of whether it’s worth your energy to take on all of the extra work coming your way. Taking a break could be just as beneficial at this point.

Virgo: Justice

Release that sense of urgency, Virgo. You have an important decision to make, but you also have time to do so. Why rush?? Use this timeline to your advantage by getting centered and carefully consider all of your options before fully committing to anything. 

Libra: Ace of Pentacles Reversed

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, Libra. A new job opportunity is coming your way which could be quite fruitful, but try not to get too carried away fantasizing about how you will spend all of that extra income! Wait until that official contract is signed first.

Scorpio: Eight of Swords

Don’t overthink it, Scorpio. The more you obsess about your current situation and ruminate over the possibilities, the more you are going to doubt yourself and your decision-making skills. Go with your first instinct, commit fully to your choice, and then just keep it moving.

Sagittarius: Seven of Cups

It’s time for a reality check, Sagittarius. Your head has been buoyantly filled with fantasies and floating in the clouds lately, leaving all logic unchecked. It’s been fun while it lasted, but the honeymoon phase is now coming to a close. So prepare yourself to reenter the real world.

Capricorn: Four of Pentacles Reversed

What are you avoiding, Capricorn? It feels like you are looking anywhere and everywhere except exactly where you should be placing your focus! Distractions can be fun, but they can also heighten your anxiety as you steer clear of whatever it is you should be facing. Do yourself a favor by limiting the diversions.

Aquarius: The High Priestess

See what unfolds, Aquarius. Your current situation is feeling rather mysterious, but that does not have to be a bad thing! This is your moment to enjoy the unknown instead of rushing to make a bold move. Relish any opportunity for peace and the solitude of stillness in order to discern your next move.

Pisces: Ten of Cups Reversed

Express your appreciation, Pisces. Open your heart up a little wider this week as you make it more of a point to tell your loved ones how much you care about them. Everyone loves to feel appreciated, so acknowledge all the ways they support you and meditate on gratitude.
