Your Weekly Tarot Reading for January 8–14, 2023: A New Year Feat. New Outlook

January 7, 2023

We are easing our way into January and getting into the swing of life post-holiday madness. If you have not yet set your new year’s intentions, last week’s full moon in Cancer illuminated what aspects of ourselves need more nurturing and care so we can move forward with renewed clarity and fresh perspectives. 

Our intuitively pulled Tarot cards reflect a collective energy that promises a boost of confidence to come through this week to spark putting inspirations and plans into action! New opportunities are being presented and now is your time to fully embrace them.

Read on for your Tarotscopes with cosmic insight to guide you through the week ahead.

Aries: Ace of Cups Reversed

Put yourself first, Aries. Don’t spare the feelings of others by holding back how you really feel right now. Stuffing down your emotions will only make this all feel worse and build up resentments. Why make a rocky situation even worse? Be truthful and speak from your heart, even if your words may be hard for someone else to hear.

Taurus: Seven of Swords

Don’t take the shortcut, Taurus. It would be nice if everything could be easy, but unfortunately, that’s not the case here. Your latest endeavor will take determination, and hard work, so don’t sabotage yourself by trying to save time by skipping ahead. Pace yourself to do it right the first time.

Gemini: Knight of Cups

Make a move, Gemini. You have been gathering your inspirations and dreaming of what you want to do next, but now is the time to make your fantasies more of a reality! Being creative and innovative is key right now. Lean into your intuition as you follow your heart’s desires because this could really be something special.

Cancer: Eight of Swords Reversed

Take the high road, Cancer. It will be easy to place blame on others this week, and if we are being honest, they did contribute to the problem here. However, playing the blame game will not get you very far on the road to a solution. Invoke a positive attitude and take a more productive approach.

Leo: Ten of Wands

Honor your obligations, Leo. You have a lot to get done this week so why take on more? Resist the temptation to overcommit yourself when your schedule is already maxed out! This burden is temporary, so handle your responsibilities one by one. Soon it will all be done!

Virgo: Five of Cups Reversed

Celebrate what you have, Virgo. In the forward momentum of striving toward your goals, it can be challenging to pause and notice how much you already possess and everything you have already accomplished. Shift your focus there rather than continuing to think of what you lack, and your whole mood will change.

Libra: Strength Reversed

Don’t doubt yourself, Libra. Unexpected changes to your current circumstances can be initially disappointing, but hope should not be lost! This has nothing to do with your skills or abilities, but it is more a matter of poor timing. Try again later this season after you make a few adjustments to your initial plan.

Scorpio: The Chariot

Full steam ahead, Scorpio! With a clear goal in mind, you can make anything happen as long as you don’t get distracted by minor irritations that pop up in your path. An obstacle is just an opportunity to get creative with your problem-solving skills. It could even lead to something far better than you initially imagined.

Sagittarius: Temperance

Maintain your composure, Sagittarius. Even when the heat gets turned up at work this week, you must keep your cool and hold yourself back from boiling over. Matching an intense vibe with more intensity won’t solve the issue! Take your time and proceed slowly and carefully until you make it out on the other side.

Capricorn: Four of Pentacles Reversed

Toss it out, Capricorn! Materialism is weighing you down this week, and suddenly, you cannot stand the sight of too much “stuff” everywhere. Will this be a momentary cleaning spree of decluttering or an existential crisis of living minimally? It might be best to start small and go from there.

Aquarius: King of Wands

Lead the way, Aquarius. You know exactly what you want, and you know how to make it happen, but you cannot do it all alone. A team effort is a necessity to reach the next level so use your charisma to rally your troops in to make this vision a reality. 

Pisces: Queen of Wands

Be confident, Pisces. Whatever you are going through this week, you must do it full force and face the challenge head-on. You must be unwavering with your approach! In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t so bad so try to remain optimistic, have faith in yourself, and know that you’ve got this.
