Happy Tuesday! This week starts with a bang as we enter the new moon in Aries, bringing us into a fresh, productive energy. What you set in motion now will come to fruition in about two weeks’ time. Appropriately, this week’s reading is designed to give you clarity on what is coming your way by the end of the new lunar cycle, and how you can prepare. Read on to find out…
The Devil. Hedonism is on the horizon, Aries. The new moon in your sign is amplifying your tendency to act selfishly when you start to feel impulsive. Try to bring yourself into a space of dedicated self-awareness once in a while – it doesn’t have to be constant, just a check-in. Unusual experiences are coming your way after a long period of hard work – you’re about to have some stories to tell. This world is a grey area, so embrace the crazy – just make sure you’re not tempted towards blind self-interest at the cost of others. Let your principles be an anchor.
Justice If you have been feeling dispirited or even depressed recently, be assured that your world is coming into balance. These are growing pains. A time of harmony is fast approaching, so keep up the well-meaning attitude that comes naturally to you and you’ll receive your just reward. Sometimes there’s no explanation for why you feel the way you feel, so for now just sit tight and wait for the storm to blow over – the sun is about to shine on you.
2 of Pentacles. A project you’ve been preparing for might hit some bumps in the road soon. Don’t let that discourage you from making the most of this potent time for creativity – the best things are hard work. You sometimes feel untethered or can’t tell what you really want. Just do what feels right, and everything will fall into place – don’t overthink. Work on building an emotional core to help you weather the storm. Top tip: centring exercises are prescribed. Give yourself five minutes every morning to just sit and breathe – it’s harder than it sounds but will teach you something new every time.
Six of Pentacles (reversed). There is an avoidable error in your path, Cancer. You have a tendency to try to avoid the unavoidable if it makes you anxious, and then convince yourself you didn’t know about it before. Now is not the time to shut your eyes. Pay extra attention to any outstanding bills or loans and tie up loose ends in your finances. Remember to unclench your jaw and relax sometimes. If you feel suspicious or jealous at any point this week, remind yourself of what you’re grateful for and remember not to make a mountain out of a molehill.
Knave of Cups. Get that bread, Leo. Adventure and creative fortune are in your cards – you might not even know that you want it yet, but it’s coming. An optimistic energy surrounds you. This is an incredibly potent time for manifestation. Work with moon to call what is meant for you even closer. Be careful not to become too attached to the things you want for yourself, though. They might look a little different than you think. Top tip: try to focus your visualisations on feelings rather than things this week.
King of Wands (reversed). You have a tendency to want to control things as much as possible. What you want is coming, so relax. Try not to be too severe or dogmatic with yourself, Virgo. You can achieve things even if parts of the process are uncertain and you’re not at 100% focus level. You are going to be rewarded for your efforts but remember: the results you’re getting aren’t just because you’re killing yourself trying. Trust in your natural abilities and know that things sometimes really do just fall into your lap.
The Devil (reversed). Someone is about to really show you that they see you. Embrace that and don’t be afraid to open up – it doesn’t have to be heavy. Knowing that someone just gets you means you can really live the things you want, without imposter syndrome or self-restriction. If you’re in a relationship, you might be about to reach a new level of closeness with your person. If you’re just doing you, you’re about to meet someone you click with on another level. It’s easy, light and inevitable.
Ten of Wands. Now is not the time indulge in your manipulative streak, Scorpio. It might work, but it’s not guilt-free or sustainable. Your natural ability to influence people is a useful tool for getting what you want, as long as you use it responsibly. Sometimes people really benefit from your spontaneous and creative leading light, but sometimes they just want to be left alone. If there’s something you really want to achieve, try going about it in a different way. Produce work that speaks for itself – quality doesn’t lie.
4 of Swords. You may not be feeling very sociable recently, Sagittarius. Your attempts at getting some rest and recuperation sometimes don’t hit as deep as they should, but that is about to change. Any feelings of unease you had about taking time for yourself are about to disappear – sometimes not just the body needs rest. Try not to feel guilty if you aren’t being as productive as you feel you should. Trying to find relax for the purpose of being able to work yourself harder when you’re done resting is counterproductive. Really lean in. You’re about to reach a point of real refreshment and replenishment for your soul.
Nine of Cups. You’re about to have a glow-up, Capricorn. Both material wealth and holistic health are on their way to you. You really deserve it. If you sometimes feel like people don’t know your value or notice you as much as they should, that is about to change. When people get jealous, you recognise that it’s not a reason to make yourself smaller for their peace of mind. Focus on how you feel and not how your success looks. Top tip: do something embarrassing in public. Everyone will have forgotten in five minutes anyway, and you’ll feel incredibly liberated afterwards.
Four of Pentacles. Your finances might become a little rocky for a short period, Aquarius. You instinctively prioritise meaning over wealth and power, and this can be a double-edged sword. Taking your finances seriously enough to cover all the essential bases is important now. Try to be reasonable – do you really want that thing, or is the power of suggestion working its magic on you? Leave money out of the equation in your free time, and make use of the things that cost nothing, like spending time with people that make you happy or exploring your city on foot.
Knight of Cups. If you’ve been manifesting an opportunity, especially one that is career-related, it’s on its way to you quicker than you think. Make sure you’re prepared for it, because it’s not going to remain just in your visualisations for much longer. Sit down and figure out what you want out of it, set your terms and make your expectations clear to yourself first. Successful collaboration requires you understanding what you want. Don’t scatter your energy – now is a time for razor-sharp focus.
