All cards below are from the Rider Waite Tarot deck.
Four of Pentacles card. Well Aries, this year has truly been an intensely powerful one for you. Not only have you really propelled yourself this year, but you pushed your goals and achievements further than any other year. Receiving the Four of Pentacles resembles either a notion of greed or self care. Though greed is usually a negative symbol, like anything else this year – you need to continue on strongly focusing on yourself. You really took this year into your own hands and showed yourself that you could really determine your own outcome. To really continue with a punch this week (and month) it might mean reflecting on our boundaries and how without them we might project ourselves negatively. While it’s key to go for what you want – it’s also important you see how you might be projecting yourself onto others. This card is also about boundaries, remember that the boundaries you create are important in sustaining your own self.
Three of Pentacles card. At times you might have felt that you were alone in your journey this year, Taurus. However you truly weren’t and if anything you’ve finally found your “crowd” by now. The Three of Pentacles resembles the fact that to make the process work, there’s got to be team work. To really feel solid this next week and month of December, find the gratitude and the positive in your team and your crowd. Who does what? What are they good at? What are you good at? Really take the time to appreciate and sit mindfully with all the good happening currently.
The Hierophant card. A very solid card to receive, Gemini. The Hierophant resembles a solid base of beliefs, faith, and hope. While most things within this card are seen as religious, you can simply take the notes of beliefs and honouring something this week and month. Whether that’s tending to a family tradition, or returning to a safe space that you can practice your beliefs in (ie a church or focus group etc.) In the fast paced world we live in, these quiet moments such as praying before eating, caring for an alter etc, can offer a sense of gratitude and stillness to our days.
The Star card. For this week and month, Cancer, you’ll need to return to your roots. You’ve got a great sense of inner voice and compassion, and in turn a great connection to the Earth and all physical things that come with it. Right now after what can only be described as a tumultuous year, you really know who you are. It might still be murky but you’ve really connected with your core once more. This week use that to recognise the power really is in your hands. There is so much magic and so many possibilities around you. Use the last month of the year to really embody those beliefs – magic will come to you for sure.
The King of Cups card. Leo, while this year has been hectic and it certainly isn’t over yet – receiving this card signifies the importance to continue with a strong sense of being grounded, calm, and balanced. You’re already quite good at this and as a Leo you know yourself well, but continue on with these three traits and you’ll be able to get through anything in the last month of 2020. The waves in the card look turbulent, but you as the King of Cups looks strong, focused, and ready. There’ll be plenty of surprises in December, but know you have the power to create your path at least in the realm of reactions.
Five of Wands card. A very interesting card to receive, Virgo. All the men are jousting each other, but if you look closely, no one is actually hitting anyone. Signifying similarly to the issue of everyone talking to be heard but no one is actually listening. For this week and the last month of the year, run with this in the aspect of making sure everyone you’re around can 1) hear you properly and that you feel seen and heard, and 2) that the crowd you’re around isn’t just speaking for speaking sake – but that they’re really offering words of wealth. It’s important you surround yourself with people who have deep thoughts, and critical thoughts, as then it’ll always provoke a deeper discussion. Rather than surface level discussions and failed promises, you’ll be better off being around those who you know have your best interest at heart.
The Fool card. Perhaps you’ve been more modest this year, Libra, but for the first week of December and last month of the year, use this time to really act out. Be a “fool” if you will, and explore adventures that you’ve always want to endeavour on. The Fool is courageous and doesn’t think too much into what they’re doing, but rather acts on feelings. The Fool resembles the fact that there’s always challenges around, we all know that, but The Fool specifically continues on the journey regardless – they aren’t afraid of those challenges and won’t stop him.
Seven of Wands card. You’re sitting in quite a valuable spot, Scorpio. It goes without saying that those in valuable spots, will have others wishing for their position. In the card it shows the individual trying to fight off other wands, in a way they are protecting what they’ve earned, worked hard for, and been gifted. For this week and last month of 2020, ensure that you aren’t being super open with all your plans or past efforts. While honesty is the best policy, for now, it is worth keeping your cards close to you. Focus on you for the last month, and really work hard on what you’re dreaming up.
Nine of Cups card. A fabulous card to receive, Sagittarius, it resembles the wishes that have come true or are set to come true. You’ve received some really great blessings this year (be it obvious or subtle). For the first week of December and last month of the year, it’s time to create a few more blessings for yourself. Be proactive but likewise show gratitude in these past blessings. The card also resembles not being complacent, make sure you’re still working for what you want this last month.
Ten of Wands card. For the first week of December and last month of the year, Capricorn, you’re looking at carrying much more than you’re able. Likewise though, the end is indeed near – just how it’s the last month of December, the Ten of Wands card also resembles an end in sight as there’s ten full wands being held. Ensure that this last stretch you’re doing what you can but in bits, don’t over exert yourself. The Ten of Wands shows just that – the individual is carrying much more than he perhaps can carry, but he is still doing it. Your work ethic is showing through in a very positive way, but remember rest is just as positive. Make sure that you also are looking at your current lifestyle and reflecting on if it’s too much for you to handle.
Two of Cups card. For the last stretch of the year, Aquarius, you’re finding some sort of love coming quite quickly. Embrace this and accept this as you deserve what good it brings. Both you and the other individual signify a similar wavelength which ultimately is bring your year round full circle. This is a very wholesome reading and feels just right for you Aquarius. There’s something really special about this card and the partnership you have with the other person. Embrace this as the year has been extremely bumpy but finally it’s coming full circle in a positive, reassuring way. In being proactive, I would dive really deep with this partnership and excitingly find out all the ways you both are compatible and how you mesh well. There might be bumps along the way, but regardless you both will get through them nonetheless.
Judgement card. This is a majorly important card, Pisces. It signifies the readiness to progress onto the next stage of your journey. Whether it’s professional, financial, love wise, etc, it’s all positive and a growing motion for sure. This year hasn’t come without its puzzle pieces, but December is finally bringing some sense to your journey. You’ve got a plethora of experience in trialling different routes and choices, so even if faced with multiple decisions, you’ve got it within you to make the right choice that works for you. For this first week of December and last month of the year, really practice acting out on your instincts and intuition. Don’t shy away or wait for the right moment – just seize the decision and make it work for you.
