Happy Tuesday! This week begins with a waning moon, which speaks for sticking to what works and avoiding making significant new decisions or embarking on new ventures. Our theme? The practices that are serving you well and the aspects of your routine you should be careful to preserve for a smooth start into a new moon phase. Enjoy!

Ace of Clubs. Honour the commitments you have made. If you are discontent, don’t be impulsive – are you just bored? This week is not the time to break any agreements or contracts. Their time is not through if the other party is still dependent on you. Starting a new project this week would only scatter your energy and slow your progress, so wrap up what you’ve got going and wait until the new moon… even if you’re anxious to keep moving.
Jack of Spades. You have been able to tap into a lighter energy recently, Taurus. Keep this open attitude going and approach your week playfully. You’re especially good at staying level-headed and not letting pettiness and gossip drag you down. You have a unique ability to see the bigger picture and look beyond everyday complications – show others how! If someone asks for your opinion give it to them straight, like you always do. Self-preservation and helping others learn are not mutually exclusive.
6 of Spades. If you have been spending more time getting to know yourself, alone, continue on this path. You are building a protective and safe space inside your own mind which will give you the strength to face any unknowns coming your way. Growing stronger and building autonomy takes time, so give yourself that time. If you are feeling anxious, it’s okay not to run towards your fears head-on until you’re ready. Top tip: get a piece of paper and just start writing whatever comes to mind, without judgement. Think of it as a mental spring-clean.
9 of Diamonds. You’re in synch with the moon this week, Cancer. You’re very, very close to a new beginning, but aren’t quite there yet. Summer is coming, and you’re eager to leave old, stagnant situations behind. Remember: a clean slate means you can focus properly on the next thing. Be patient, Cancer. Hang out with a Pisces friend and motivate each other to push through this last bit of hard work, even if you’re bored with it. An opportunity is arising for you soon, but you must make sure you’ve tied up loose ends and finished what needs finishing before you can dive in with full conviction.
7 of Clubs. This week’s energy? Acceptance. You find it easy to recognise when things are not worth your time but tend towards perfectionism. This week you find it equally as easy not to expend your energy trying to forcibly change things. Embrace the path of acceptance this week. Cultivate your ability to see a full spectrum of colour and recognise that the world is rarely black and white. Home in on the grey areas and simply try to understand, not to resolve or adjust. Complexity suits you well this week. If something isn’t perfect, find joy in that imperfection and move on.
9 of Spades. You’re on a straight trajectory, Virgo. If you’ve been finding your feet and shifting your priorities towards stability, security, and independence, stick with it. You deserve things going your way. Do not give other people’s opinions power over you. If you know what you want, you’re already halfway there. This week, make sure you don’t mix up who you want to be with whom others want you to be. Keep chipping away at that block of marble and trust the process – success is in the cards.
Ace of Spades. You may be especially in tune with the emotions of others at the moment. There is a nurturing energy to your presence which is felt wherever you go. Cultivate your feminine side further. Be kind, making sure you direct that energy inwards, too. This does not mean passivity, Libra. Engaging with your surroundings in an open-minded and empathetic way can be one of the best ways of tuning into your intuition. Top tip: the unconscious might be more accessible than you think. Meditate and make some art. It doesn’t have to be pretty, just real.
10 of Clubs. If you have been working on improving your relationship with food, you will feel the benefits very soon. Although our relationships with food can be difficult, you are approaching this area of your life with determination and willpower. Be strong but gentle with your body. It is a miracle of nature that works relentlessly. Make sure you are giving yourself access to a well-balanced and nutritious diet. Do not set yourself unrealistic or unhealthy goals. Healing the body heals the mind, and vice-versa.
7 of Diamonds. Conversation, communication, reliability, intimacy, friendship. Continue to invest energy in the positive relationships in your life, Sagittarius. You are in an incredibly communicative and intimate energy at the moment. This week is a great time to strengthen and solidify friendships and work relationships. Anchor the ships that are dear to you in an authentic way. People can sense loyalty and reliability through your actions – avoid exertive efforts to impress the people who already love and appreciate you. Top tip: if you feel a sudden urge towards a random act of kindness, do it. Your actions and the sentiments behind them are especially bright and clear to others this week.
King of Clubs. If you are feeling rootless or foggy, remember that this feeling never lasts long for you, Capricorn. You may feel uncomfortable with uncertainty or a lack of clarity on what path is right for you. Turn to a Leo friend this week – they are also learning to practice acceptance. If there is a masculine energy in your life that is causing you confusion, know that the situation will be cleared up in no time. Other people’s actions are often beyond our control – that’s what keeps life interesting. If somebody is trying to provoke a reaction from you, don’t bite this week. You are cool, calm and collected.
Jack of Hearts. You’re on the right path, Aquarius. The joy you draw from spreading positive vibes is surrounding you with a golden light. Inspiring and uplifting others uplifts you, too. This week, you should pay special attention to cultivating the solo activity you find the most rewarding in your daily routine. Being consistent with this personal practice – whether that be yoga, walking, reading the newspaper with a cup of coffee in the morning – is the grounding thread you need. Top tip: if your personal practice is physical or skills-based, you are at the precipice of a breakthrough. Just stick with it!
Ace of Hearts. This week, progress might feel slow. If you are working on any large projects, split them into palatable chunks and start right away. Everyone procrastinates, but you don’t have to overdo it. Keep working hard and nurture your assertive side. You care about producing things you are proud of, so trust in your capabilities. There is joy to be found in a good day’s work. You’ll get there before you know it – don’t pay attention to what everyone else is doing. They’re all on their own journeys.
