This week begins with a full moon in Libra on Sunday night, with Aries sun in opposition. Relationship realisations are on the cards! This week’s reading focusses on what you should pay special attention to in your interactions with those around you, alongside any significant relationship events, conflicts or new beginnings that might be coming your way.
Decks used: Classic Rider-Waite, clarified by cards from the Celtic Lenormand oracle deck.
The Moon. This week, you are especially in touch with your sexuality. Creating a safe space to indulge in this energy is essential and requires honesty and frankness. This is not the time for white lies. It’s okay to make mistakes and be impulsive sometimes, as long as you own it and try not to hurt anyone in the process. Make sure you are communicating, and everything else will fall into place. Top tip: look to someone with more years under their belt for guidance this week. Untapped wisdom is a wasted resource.
Knight of Swords. This week is looking rosy, and the stars are aligning for you. You have the ability to get what you want this week, so make sure you’re going for what you really desire. If you’re in a new relationship, you might be moving towards a new level of commitment. Don’t rush in – think carefully before you commit. You are especially magnetic this week, and people want to be around you. Make sure you aren’t saying yes to something just because you can, and treat other people’s feelings with respect. With power comes responsibility.
The Hermit. Recharge your social battery and nurture yourself, Gemini. This week, you find a special contentment in your own company. The most important relationship you have is with yourself. Self-love is your priority. Your masculine and feminine energies may need balancing, so re-centring yourself is especially helpful for re-emerging from this period in a positive and energised mood. Top tip: approach your self-care practices with boldness and confidence. Do what really feels right for you, not what you think should feel right. When it comes to you, you are the expert. Listen to your body.
The Star (reversed). You approach your relationships with confidence this week. Your more dominant side is coming to the forefront, which means it’s a good time for making boundaries clear and asking for what you need. Now is the time for articulating the level of commitment you want. Make sure you’re paying attention when people speak. That means really listening. Everybody is a teacher. Top tip: don’t let your confidence slip into arrogance. There is always more to learn.
Wheel of Fortune. There may be some movement in your social world soon, Leo. This week, you have the ability to look towards the future with a quiet confidence. Do not resist positive change – outgrowing situations and people can be tough, but beginnings require endings. Going with the flow and embodying a newfound lightness, you are also aware of the pure and sacred nature of your sexuality this week. If you choose to be with another person, try and be as present as you can. Energetic harmony and communication are key.
9 of Swords. You may be feeling anxious about social interaction this week. It sometimes feels like gossip and drama follow you. Try not to engage. Looking at the bigger picture can help you to realise that things are seldom as significant as they seem. Catch up with someone outside of your regular spheres this week. Recognising outdated patterns of behaviour requires active reflection and mixing up who you engage with will help to inject some fresh energy into your everyday. You may find yourself seeking refuge from your social life with a significant other this week. Love is your safe place.
3 of Swords (reversed). If you are feeling confused or alienated about a significant relationship, know that you always have options. We all need reassurance sometimes. If you are questioning somebody’s loyalty, talk to them. Trust your gut and do not let your worries spiral. Whether in love or friendship, if true intimacy is what you want, don’t let distance make room for itself. Remember: you hold half of the power in every relationship
The Magician. You have a great capacity for flexibility in your relationships this week, Scorpio. The next 7 days are a very sociable time for you. Your magnetism, willpower and social skills place you at the centre of many conversations – you are being talked about. Don’t shy away from lively debates and deeper exchanges. Use your sharp wit and insight to start conversations worth having – just make sure you give others the platform you give yourself. Top tip: do some writing this week, because you have a lot to say. The words will flow as if by magic.
5 of Swords (reversed). Something is coming to a close, Sagittarius. New information that has been buried for a while may come to light this week, but it won’t come as a surprise. You may feel like your relationships often follow the same patterns – that cycle is finally being broken. In the spirit of Aries season, you are coming closer and closer to a significant transformation in how you approach your relationships. Make use of your capacity for patience. Top tip: don’t make any rash decisions right now. Gather your energy until the time is right for you to act from a place of strength and complete conviction.
Page of Swords. You are attuned to things that others are not, Capricorn. Although you are no wallflower, your observant nature means that you are often aware of the hidden dynamics between other people. This makes you especially skilled at giving advice. Make sure you are not passing judgement on other people’s relationships but, if asked, speak candidly. The power structures in your relationships are slowly shifting, and you can sense it. Approach this shift with curiosity and openness – there is no sense in trying to preserve what is not destined for permanence.
10 of Wands. Be wary of co-dependency. Relationships should function as support systems, but balance is essential. Don’t close up or keep it in, but mix up who you ask for advice this week. You might be pleasantly surprised. If you feel something is off in a significant relationship, this week is the perfect time to sit down and figure it out. You are extra receptive to hidden signs and messages at the moment. Top tip: revive an activity you haven’t done since childhood. Rediscover the joy of pure, wholesome fun – it can be incredibly liberating and break you out of any rut.
Page of Pentacles. You have the ability to set down roots this week, Pisces. Relationships are living things – they need love, care and attention. Make sure you are showing your appreciation for the people you love. This week, try to live in the moment. Realise that this, here, is your life. Be grateful for the people who have your back, and don’t take them for granted. You are destined for beautifully stable and healthy connections, as long as you stay still for long enough to do so. The grass is not always greener on the other side.
