Happy Tarot Tuesday friends! For this Tuesday’s reading we’ll be discussing what your sign can do to get out of feeling stuck. As we enter our third week of the year, the exciting feelings of the new year and resolutions might be subsiding and we may be feeling the realities of feeling stuck, confused, and / or lost. Additionally – with many (if not all of us) in lockdown or some sort of quarantine, these feelings of being stuck might be hugely rising. Of course, take the below with a grain of salt and what resonates with you will be the best avenue to explore.

All cards below are from the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck.
Four of Wands card. If you’re feeling stuck this week, Aries, the Four of Wands is here to really remind you of the greatness that comes with new partnerships, new experiences, and new thoughts. By exploring the endless possibilities or taking more risks, you’ll find these feelings of being stuck might dissolve more easily. Of course more work might need to be done, but by recognising the endless possibilities you’re opening yourself up for a more open mind – versus feeling the claustrophobia of being stuck.
The Empress card. If this time you’re feeling stuck, Taurus, by receiving the Empress card this is a sign for you to really see the beauty in being stuck. It’s an odd thought but evaluate why you’re feeling stuck. Are you stuck because you can’t choose between your options? What a beautiful thought being that you have more than one avenue to go down! Are you stuck because you have only one option to choose from? Isn’t that a blessing in some way as the Universe is directing you to exactly where you might be best going? Or rather maybe it’s urging you to break free from that one option and really stand on your own two feet in a starting point. Whichever feeling it might be – remember the power of gratitude that can be birth from within you.
Nine of Wands card. Gemini, the wands that are represented within the card resemble all the hard work you’ve done that have lead to where you are currently. By reminding ourselves of these hardships, hard efforts, and past journeys we’ve been on, we open ourselves up to see the future for what it is. Though the future is unknown – if we can bring that same hard working energy to the future, we can potentially evade the feelings of being stuck in one place – if we know we’re doing all we can to evade it.
Queen of Cups card. Though moments of uneasiness are hardly settling – receiving the Queen of Cups card is one that should bring a sense of calmness. The Queen resembles calmness, confidence, and imagination. So while we might feel stuck right now – use your innate intuition and imagination, Cancer, to really see what the future could hold. The hardships or confusion won’t always be like this, and you have every right to remove yourself from these situations. Though the feelings of being stuck might be prevalent – you always have the power to move.
Ten of Swords card. Much of this card, Leo, is sad and one that makes you halt regardless. In the feelings of being stuck it’s imperative that with this card you take a break. Though it’s the start of the year don’t feel like you must continue on so forcefully every day. Take a break, slow down, breathe and acknowledge that not everything can go at 100mph. Though the pain or hardship or confusion with this card may be intense, it’s not permanent and neither is the feeling of being stuck. Just by slowing down you might see a new side of your life and that’s all it takes for removing the possible feelings of being stuck.
The Emperor card. Virgo, the Emperor is a very rational and concrete being / card. By receiving it, the Emperor signals regardless of your situation or feeling of being stuck – there’s a rational route to be taken this time. Rationally look over your options and directions you could go, and really use your mind on this one. Mind over feelings. This isn’t a week to be distracted by the “what ifs” but rather the things that are right in front of you. This week’s motto for you is very much so “make it make sense” and do so very rationally.
The Chariot card. Libra, this week if you’re feeling stuck – your options for getting out of the stickiness is all about getting something done. Don’t leave jobs or tasks uncompleted this week, make sure you see everything through properly. Muster up any and all willpower you can and ensure you are motivated to really push through the week. Whatever it is you do – whether it’s exercising first thing in the morning to get that daily burst of energy or switching from decaf to caffeine – make it happen. This week isn’t really about the small victories but like the grandness of the Chariot – it’s about completing and exuding the big victories.
Strength card. Scorpio, this week your feelings of being stuck will erode when you really treat yourself with gentleness and kindness. Do not rush your journeys this week as the Strength card exudes the meaning that softness and kindness is the main strength over being forceful. Lead your week by showing everyone and yourself what you aim to do – don’t just talk the talk. Take your time if you need to and really listen to your inner self. What do you think you need to remove these feelings of being stuck? Listen to tones of patience and understanding – the rest will come.
Temperance card. With this card, Sagittarius, the Temperance is ask you what something really means. It’s an ideological card and looks for symbols and meanings. So when you feel stuck – what does this really mean to you? Is it your home life? Is it your work? Is it your relationships? With great patience and balance you’ll find exactly why you’re feeling what you are. Put yourself first in these moments and really find what it is you’re looking for. This isn’t really time to put someone before you but rather seek what you desire and see if your life is reflecting just that.
Ten of Pentacles card. When these feelings of being stuck arise, Capricorn, it might be a good sign. While it’s never nice to feel this, you may want to take the good from it. The Ten of Pentacles represents safety, support, and a reassurance. So do your feelings come from a safe and comfortable place? In that sense it might be that you’ve built such a strong and supportive area for yourself – which in itself is applaudable. However, if you’re not feeling fulfilled this is still an area to be explored. Dive into why you’re feeling this way and how you can continue feeling supported and safe, but also excited.
Nine of Pentacles card. Maybe, Aquarius, it’s time to spend a little money on yourself. The Nine of Pentacles – though not a card based solely off of frivolousness – does denote a vibe of spending time and money on you and your loved ones. Explore what this means to you and how it can help you with your feelings of being stuck. Though it should be noted you should do this with moderation and not constantly go to money to evade feelings of being stuck. If anything spend time and money on some things that will benefit you for the long run. Education, self love, etc.
Nine of Cups card. Similar to Capricorn’s reading, the Nine of Cups denotes a meaning of maturity, and fulfilment. So while you might be feeling stuck – maybe it means you’ve really set yourself up properly around a safe, secure, and supportive realm. But just like Capricorn, what can you do to even further emotionally support and excite yourself? Though Covid-19 is still very real, explore the possibilities of new experiences, feelings, and adventures to ignite your inner self. How can you self love or self improve in a way that will make yourself proud and excited?
