Deck used: The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit
Sea serpent. You have a little work to do, Aries. You may have difficulty figuring out what your purpose is. To align your actions with your desires, you need to find out what those desires are. Is what you think you want really what you need, or is it an expression of an unaddressed emotional wound? Try to visualise forward-thinking goals rather than goals which serve a past version of yourself. Top tip: practice some kundalini yoga this week to find balance. Focus on your svadhisthana chakra. Take the time to figure out your desires and be kind to yourself.
Bee. You are an artist at heart, Taurus. You apply yourself wholly when you are invested in something, but your sensitivity and genuine nature can sometimes leave you vulnerable to burnout. Avoiding overworking yourself is key to finding success. Try not to let yourself get to the point of exhaustion. Take a mini-break or let your hair down occasionally to keep your balance and avoid reaching a point of irritability and snappiness. Aim for a career which allows you to apply yourself creatively to your tasks – carrying out your vision how you see fit stops work feeling like work.
Frog. Monotonous work is not good for your multifaceted nature, Gemini. Self-care is extremely important for a sensitive soul like you, so make sure you remain attuned to when your gut is asking for something. Finding a career which is not conducive to burnout is especially important for you. High-pressure work is fine if it allows time for restful breaks. You may also have a strong connection to the water – integrate this into your day-to-day. Top tip: go to the sea or a lake this week and take a cleansing dip to revive your energy, even if it’s chilly.
Snake. There is no time to waste, Cancer. You have immense potential for success, but your creative life force may be dormant right now. Do not let the pressure to act paralyse you – your abilities are yours to do with as you please. A creative career is on the cards, but living your dreams requires taking them seriously. Top tip: find an Aries friend this week and devote an hour or two to a kundalini yoga practice. It might help clarify what needs shaking up in your life. Do not dull yourself down – there is fire in your belly.
Buffalo. Your ability to see bumps in the road as challenges to overcome serves you well, Leo. For you, success is the feeling of having lived life to the fullest. You do not fear misfortune but rather dullness and inadequacy. Practicing gratitude and consciously cherishing the intensity of the human experience will help you to see that success is already with you in every moment that you are alive. Beware of restlessness, however. Do not let your hunger for more detract from what you have in the present. Top tip: examine and work on your commitment issues this week.
Peacock. You radiate beauty, Virgo. At your best, you find it easy to let go of pain and avoid harbouring conflict. When you’re out of balance, you struggle to digest difficult situations despite your best efforts. Apply the kindness you express towards others to yourself. You feel at home around other people, and this is where you will find the most success. A career through which you can share your internal beauty and zest for life with others, for example in entertainment, will allow you to fulfil your potential. Just make sure you look after yourself first.
Elephant. You are unstoppable, Libra. Your problem-solving ability is one of your greatest assets, and people may look to you for advice or input. The trustworthiness and respect you inspire means you may find success at the top of an organisation or in an advisory role. Remember that power and responsibility go hand in hand. Always remain humble and trust the process. Remember that periods of upheaval and chaos are necessary for a new order to emerge. Do not value control too highly and work on remaining calm when things don’t go your way. Be a port in the storm.
Golden Egg. You have a strong and vibrant energy which may translate into restlessness at times, Scorpio. You are most content when you feel safe and warm. Finding inner peace, integrating, and accepting all parts of yourself prerequisites for enjoying material success. Listen to your heart and do not rush anything. Spend time around people who make you feel secure and give you the space to slow down when you need to. Top tip: this week, focus on what your heart is telling you. Do a heart-opening meditation, spend time with loved ones and be generous. It will all come back to you.
Hyena. You have a tendency to trivialise your goals and sometimes use humour to mask what you’re really feeling. Success requires true confidence in your abilities and your worth. To achieve this confidence, we need to shine a light in the darkest corners of our minds If there is a side of you that you are uncomfortable with, have a conversation with it. Nothing is fixed. Not taking yourself too seriously is an asset. Dismissing your desires and denying your worth is damaging. Top tip: write a wish list for your future. Nothing is too big or too silly.
Earthworm. You will be at your most successful when you have worked your way into a position of expertise. No matter where you are on your journey, trust the process and know that as long as you are earnest and hardworking, your presence is invaluable. Imposter syndrome is something most of us experience. Self-doubt is okay so long as you feel the fear and do it anyway. Risking embarrassment and failure is the order of the day. Top tip: always make use of your ideas, even in a room full of experts. You might have the fresh perspective they need.
Turtle. Although you have a nomadic spirit, a part of you is always tethered to the earth. Your internal compass allows you to move through the world in a playful and explorative manner without losing your way. For you, success is ultimately rooted in freedom, which can take many forms. You will find the most joy when you are you are the one person in charge of your time. This week, take steps towards your independence. If you want to start your own business or change career path, this is your sign.
Butterfly. You may be feeling a little untethered, Pisces. You tend to follow your heart, but sometimes you aren’t sure what you want or need. You find the most joy in fulfilling relationships – success may lie in contentment in love and friendship for you. The value you place on this area of your life may be the cause of some social anxiety. Top tip: find a consistent practice which anchors you daily, whether that be your morning coffee or your commute. It will help keep you grounded, focussed, and will dispel fixations that keep you from achieving contentment.
