Aries: Ace of Swords Reversed

Taurus: Page of Pentacles

Learn something new, Taurus. If you want to take your dreams to the next level this year, it is time to take yourself more seriously and invest in developing your abilities more fully. If a subject piques your interest or you feel like your skills are lacking, look for class and educational opportunities so you can advance.

Gemini: Two of Pentacles

Stay balanced, Gemini. Have you been more focused on your professional life leaving little time for fun and friends? Or have your priorities skewed more toward cutting loose and having a good time, leaving little space for work? Either way, your new year’s resolution should be to tip the scales to a place that feels more equal.

Cancer: Knight of Swords

Stay focused, Cancer. As you set your intentions for the new year, be crystal clear about what you really desire to accomplish next. This is your moment to eliminate your distractions and prioritize your biggest dreams! With sheer determination, you can make anything happen.

Leo: Five of Cups Reversed

Make peace with the past, Leo. There is no better time than January first to start over and begin again. Use this first week of the new year to reflect on the painful lessons you have learned over the past twelve months and acknowledge the wisdom you are taking with you so you can apply it now. This is how you move on.

Virgo: Ace of Cups Reversed

It’s all about you, Virgo! It’s time for you to make yourself a priority so set your new year’s intentions around self-care. What people, places, activities, and situations refill your energetic cup? Whatever it is, call in more of that in 2023 so you can prioritize feeling your best.

Libra: Three of Wands

Leave your comfort zone, Libra. The year has just begun, and so many incredible opportunities are already coming your way! This is the stuff that dreams are made of, but you are going to push yourself to meet the challenges that await. Don’t be nervous; this is exciting!

Scorpio: King of Swords Reversed

Stay true to yourself, Scorpio. You don’t have to be the loudest in the room in order to flex your power and wisdom. This week, it will be far more impactful (and victorious!) for you to remain calm and just listen to others’ perspectives on the situation. Your cool demeanor will speak volumes.

Sagittarius: Four of Pentacles Reversed

Let’s be fiscally responsible, Sagittarius. There’s no better time than the new year to get your life in order so let’s focus on your habits with money! If you are ready to curb your impulse buying and start saving more, make your intentions around improving your spending moving forward from here.

Capricorn: Seven of Swords Reversed

Everything comes to light eventually, Capricorn. A little white lie might seem like a good idea to get you out of a sticky situation, but the truth always comes out at some point. You might initially avoid hurt feelings, but is it worth it when the other party sees your deceit? Consider this carefully.

Aquarius: Queen of Swords Reversed

Remain objective, Aquarius. Your current situation only feels confusing because you are letting your heart run the show when you should be looking at the facts instead! Don’t make any decisions based on your own assumptions because you will only regret it once the clarity sets in.

Pisces: The Star Reversed

Don’t give up yet, Pisces! Disappointing news has you feeling a bit defeated this week, but all hope is not lost! This could be just a matter of timing so try to remain positive as you focus your attention elsewhere in the meantime.
