Your Weekly Tarot Reading for December 10–16, 2023: Year-End Reflections.
The year continues to wind down as this week’s energy provides an optimal time to reflect on how far we have come. At the same time, we’re setting our sights on all of our developing plans for 2024. On December 12, we have a new moon in Sagittarius, coupled with the beginning of Mercury’s next retrograde, providing a lovely opportunity to pause, slow down, and consider our next steps before setting our intentions. Take some time this week to acknowledge all of your progress this past year and allow this to motivate you to dream even bigger than you previously thought possible!
This week’s intuitively pulled Tarot cards inspire a gentle energy of self-compassion and mental relief. There’s no need to rush or force something to happen, especially if you feel exhausted or burnt out by an endless to-do list of responsibilities that border on burdensome. Make more time for yourself to relax and destress rather than take on more. Honor your limitations because it’s completely unnecessary to push past them.
Read on for your Tarotscopes with cosmic guidance on finishing the year strong.
Aries: Three of Swords Reversed
Show yourself compassion, Aries. Something laid to rest long ago feels like it is coming back to haunt you through the reminders of unexpected, potentially painful memories. Look at this moment as a reminder of what is ready to be healed. Move through your feelings with kindness and forgiveness to let them go.

Taurus: The Wheel of Fortune
Take the initiative, Taurus. If you want to take your work to the next level, you must be bold this week and seize the major opportunities presenting themselves to you now. Growth and expansion can be challenging at first, even for a good time of change.
Gemini: The Hermit Reversed
Gain an outside perspective, Gemini. It’s very easy for you to get stuck in your head, ruminating about your troubles or going over how scenarios could potentially play out. Resist the temptation to do that too much this week by asking a trusted friend for their point of view instead. A different vantage point will bring the peace and clarity you need.
Cancer: The Star
Relief is on the way, Cancer. Your schedule is opening up, and the restorative break you have so desperately needed is here! Embrace this moment fully by taking every opportunity to rest and relax your mind while indulging in peace and quiet. While you’re at it, stop obsessively checking your email inbox.

Leo: The Tower
Submit to the inevitable, Leo. The winds of change are shifting, and it’s time for you to transform an aspect of your life where the dynamic just isn’t working anymore. It’s perfectly natural to outgrow something, and there’s no point in resisting what you know you must do. If you lean into this transition, the benefits will be long-lasting.
Virgo: Ace of Pentacles Reversed
Not just yet, Virgo. Something is percolating, and it feels like it’s close to beginning, but this is not the time to be impulsive or rush into it. If something feels off, pay attention to that, and don’t force something in an attempt to speed up the process. Let more information be revealed.
Libra: King of Swords
Keep your cool, Libra. To navigate the drama of your current situation, you need to keep your emotions out of this one. Let fairness be your guide as you remain level-headed and stick to the facts, even when everyone else involved is doing the opposite.
Scorpio: Seven of Pentacles Reversed
Be patient, Scorpio. It’s understandable to be frustrated when everything is taking longer than you would like to come to fruition, but try to remember that good things take time. Don’t give up yet, or let yourself believe your time and efforts have been wasted. Hold on a little longer.
Sagittarius: The Sun
Enjoy the moment, Sagittarius. There are so many beautiful wishes coming true for you right now, so why don’t you let yourself enjoy it? Don’t overthink it or stay focused on when it all could end. It really can feel this good! This is all for you, and the benefits are long-lasting.
Capricorn: Six of Pentacles
Reach out for support, Capricorn. This week’s circumstances will remind you that you cannot do everything yourself, free of assistance. As much as it might pain you, now is a good time to reach out for a little extra help where you need it most. All you have to do is ask.
Aquarius: Ten of Wands Reversed
Set your boundaries, Aquarius. It might feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders right now, but there are a lot of burdens that simply aren’t yours to take on. Focus on managing your stress this week and knowing when to implement the power of “no!”
Don’t jump to any conclusions, Pisces. This week finds you pulled in every direction as everyone wants to tell you their side of the story unfolding. Do you really need to get involved? Too late, you already are! Hear everyone out and weigh all options, but don’t rush to take sides.
