All cards below are from the Rider-Waite deck.
Queen of Wands card. While many people might say you’re overreactive or super hot headed, Aries, it goes without saying that sometimes you really can keep your cool and stay very rational. This goes for this week! Queen of Wands is rational, fair, and optimistic. She looks onwards with a steady eye, and holds a sunflower that represents new births and bright things coming. The mountains behind her, are quite literally that – behind her. So this week find the strength to remember the heights you’ve climbed so far, and that with a calm and cool head – anything is possible.
The Moon card. This card resembles the subconscious and in times of journeys and struggles, you seem to excel in keeping cool and remembering why you’re on this path. Your biggest strength this week will be to look inwards and reflect heavily on your dreams and goals. What are the things your heart and soul desire most? If you can excel at tuning into these things, you won’t be flustered by the nonsensical outward factors around you.
Six of Pentacles card. Your giving nature will work in your favour this week. Don’t withhold information or kindness this week – allow yourself to give and in turn you might receive some good will. As everyone says “what goes around comes around” so this week, Karma will heavily influence your experience. It will be highly appreciated if you’re able to give your time, thoughts, opinions, and advice to those in need. Giving finances might be good, but a solid piece of advice will always go a longer way.
The Star card. As a Cancer, you’re used to reflecting inwards and allowing your emotions to heavily evolve. With struggles that might evolve this week, don’t stop the self love! The good things you sow will reap heavy gifts back towards you. They might be good, healthy lessons learned, or healthier environments to be around. Either way, water the things around you that you care most about and use this week to outwardly eject some good into the world.
Ten of Cups card. You’re a rational one, Leo, and very realistic most of the time. However, this week look at all the good around you! Yes, there might be a lot bringing you down, however there is so much good in your favour. This week, with the struggles you might face, remember to reflect on the positives and the lengths you’ve come already. Wanting more is always good, as it pushes you to always strive for better, but sitting with the already good – sometimes is just as necessary as pushing for more.
Four of Pentacles card. You’re a sensible one when it comes to finances, Virgo. However, this week it might be worth reflecting a bit on your financial state. Are you being too loose with your funds? Or alternatively too tight? Is it causing you more harm than good? This week, take some time to look at your financial situation or even your habits toward saving, money, losses, etc.
Queen of Swords card. You’re ready for anything, it seems like – with the Queen of Swords holding her sword up high. Alternatively, you’re open minded to giving someone a chance (signified by the Queen putting her palm out as though to give someone a chance to speak.) You seem comfortable where you are currently, and moving forward this week, I’d say to continue on with a level headed attitude and mindset. Don’t let things frazzle you too much – especially if they aren’t worth your time.
Page of Wands card. A patient, calm, and detail-oriented mindset is what’s needed this week. With inevitable craziness that might stir up your week, remind yourself that the best things happen when details aren’t skipped over. Don’t just look towards the bigger picture but rather really take your time to get the journey right. Step by step, take baby steps to really ensure you aren’t skipping over any important things in your week.
Nine of Wands card. Use this week to establish boundaries necessary to keep unwanted opinions, and bad energies at bay. There might be setbacks this week, but it is your journey and making mistakes or fumbling is all a part of it. However, you don’t need unnecessary drama or people who aren’t as serious about your path as you are. Keep pushing this week, and remember the eight other opinions behind you aren’t as important as the one solid opinion you have about yourself.
Nine of Swords card. There’s definitely been some sort of hardship going around you thats making it hard for you to bear your thoughts. Keep in mind that with all hardships, comes a light at the end of the tunnel. What is weighing you down this week? Is it your insecurities or worries? If you don’t address the negative cycle that you’re drilling yourself into the ground in, it’ll be more and more difficult to come back up from it.
Temperance card. With great patience comes great gifts this week, Aquarius. Make sure your week is balanced and settled. Despite inevitable unannounced stressors, if you create a strong, balanced foundation you’ll be able to handle these stressors a lot better. Likewise, make sure what you’re preaching is coming right back to you. By this I mean, whatever it is that you’re feeding out into the world, make sure you’re able to swallow it right back – so if you can’t handle the advice you’re giving, it might be worth rethinking why it’s being given out. Is it with good intent? Good energy? Is it empowering and strength based? All things to consider.
Ten of Wands card. Are you trying to keep more things together than you are able to carry right now? By acknowledging that, you’re giving yourself the chance to really work on your inner peace and inner harmony. This week, if things do get intense, consider areas of your life that you can lighten the load on. Try focusing on the utmost important bits of your life this week, and don’t stress too much over the super small details that don’t affect your bigger journey.
