Taurus: The Hierophant Reversed

Be open to new possibilities, Taurus. In order to resolve your current situation, you are going to think outside of the box this week. The same old approach clearly isn’t working here. Don’t be afraid to try something completely unexpected to get your desired results.

Gemini: Judgment

Don’t be afraid to fail, Gemini. It’s challenging to feel creative when you continue to harshly criticize and shoot down all of your ideas before they have a chance to breathe and flourish. Be kinder to yourself and share your vision with others this week. You could be surprised by how successful this turns out to be.

Cancer: The Hanged Man

Just wait, Cancer. Sometimes the nest move is actually no move at all. The real reason you haven’t made a decision just yet is that you lack the information to move forward. All will be revealed in due time, so there is no need for urgency right now.

Scorpio: The Tower

Tear it down, Scorpio. You know that what you’re doing isn’t really working. It’s time to take your destiny into your own hands and make an extreme change. Sometimes the only way to see results is to shred it all and start again. This is one of those moments.

Sagittarius: The Empress Reversed

Feeling uninspired, Sagittarius? It’s challenging to be creative right now if you continue to harshly criticize your ideas or insist that an audience will not be able to connect to your vision. Stop acting like this is a failure when it hasn’t even been given a chance to sprout yet! 

Capricorn: The Fool

Don’t psych yourself out, Capricorn. An opportunity has come your way, so the time is now to take a chance and just go for it! You might not know everything you need to know just yet, but that is working in your favor as beginner’s luck is on your side.

Aquarius: Six of Pentacles Reversed

Be mindful of your energy, Aquarius. Imbalances in relationships will be more noticeable this week as it becomes crystal clear in which situations you give far more than you receive. Don’t be afraid to pull back in order to reserve your attention for people who return your efforts.

Pisces: Temperance Reversed

Less is more, Pisces. If you’ve been overdoing it lately and finding yourself running on empty, then this is your cosmic signal to slow down and seek a better sense of balance! You don’t need to take everything to the limit, and if you must indulge in something, give moderation a shot.
