Happy Tuesday! Gemini season begins this Thursday the 20th, bringing us into a curious and intellectually stimulating energy. This week’s reading will focus on how best to approach this coming Gemini season, with a special focus on new pursuits to expand your field of vision. Expect the unexpected and enjoy!
Six of Swords. You’re being called to distant lands, Aries. Variety is the spice of life, and it may have been a while for you. If you can, go somewhere you’ve never been before. This can mean anything from taking a new route to work to packing a bag and fleeing the continent for a few weeks. The important message here is: get off the well-beaten path, and quick. Remember to love yours, but mix it up once in a while. Spending too much time in your own world is like building yourself a golden cage.
The Priestess. Have you got any niche interests to which you don’t give enough airtime? Now is the time to delve deep. Getting your teeth into something you’re nerdy about is especially rewarding right now. Don’t be afraid of philosophical discussions, books you don’t fully understand or thinkers you’re only just discovering. Approach new knowledge like a child, with openness and fascination. You don’t have to be an expert; you just have to care. Top tip: every time you find something that enriches your life, share it with one other person you feel would benefit. Diffuse and transmit.
Seven of Wands. Opening yourself up to criticism is vital for your development, Gemini. This is especially true for any areas of your life in which you feel stagnant or discontent. Even if you’re completely content, hearing out other people can be very rewarding. You don’t have to take anyone’s opinion on board, but conversation will always teach you something valuable, even if it’s just about the other person. Top tip: try pitching an idea or applying for a position you feel is beyond your scope. If you fail, ask for feedback.
Justice. Help someone out this week, Cancer. If you can, do some charity work – don’t just throw money at a cause if you can do more to help. If a friend asks you for assistance but the task sounds too exhausting, do it anyway. They won’t forget it. Keep your actions personal and try not to fall into virtue-signalling. You will get your just rewards. Admitting you’d rather be somewhere else and choosing to help out anyway is better than trying to be superhuman.
Knave of Cups. Tap into your seductive energy this week, Leo. Think of something specific you really want and go and get it. Sometimes you need reminding of your magnetic personality– don’t let it go to waste. Try not to let the diffuse energy at the end of the week lull you into coasting and taking only what is handed to you. Fruit on higher branches tastes much sweeter, you just have to climb. Be careful: always have something to offer in exchange. Giving as much of yourself as you expect from others, and avoiding possessiveness is essential.
Knight of Swords. Try something outside of your comfort zone this week, Virgo. Stay safe but get out there. Every time you exceed your own expectations, your spirit grows. Give your confidence the opportunity for development. There is a difference between being responsible and dressing yourself in bubble wrap. If you’re feeling insecure or bored, go out and give yourself the opportunity to prove to yourself that your life is in your own hands.
King of Wands. Approach this week with complete honesty, Libra. This does not mean employing cynicism or looking for trouble – it just means embracing rawness whenever the opportunity presents itself. If someone asks for your input, give them the truth they deserve. Frankness is refreshing. Do not be afraid to speak up about things you care about. People are stronger and thicker skinned than you may think. Top tip: if you see a stranger doing something that gives you joy, tell them. A smile or a compliment from someone who doesn’t have to can make someone’s week.
Six of Wands. Take yourself on a date this week, Scorpio. If there’s something you’d like to do but you don’t have anyone to do it with, go anyway. Life is too short to wait for other people to lead the way. Don’t be afraid to look like you have no mates – if you’re doing something you enjoy you will never look lonely. Your desires are much closer to being fulfilled than you may think. Don’t let anxiety hold you back – the timing is never going to be perfect. Top tip: go on a solo restaurant trip this week.
King of Pentacles. If you’ve been thinking about investing, this week is a good time to do so. You don’t need to think big, but doing something with your resources is better than letting them gather dust. Try not to risk more than you can afford to, but don’t play it too safe right now. Ask someone you trust for input, give yourself the reassurance you need and go for it. If you aren’t ready for a financial commitment, invest your energy instead. Initiative is key right now. Failing is better than inaction.
Seven of Wands. Know that you are gifted, but don’t let it get to your head. You have a natural advantage in competition, so if someone challenges you this week, accept it. Take on more than you think you can handle and see where it gets you. Underestimating yourself is the first limit to achieving your full potential. Go with the flow and don’t panic if you reach your limit. Sometimes knowing where your boundaries lie requires crossing them. Top tip: if you can, go for a swim to find serenity this week.
Ace of Swords. This week is a good time to tap into your competitive side, Aquarius. This may not always come naturally to you, but engaging in a healthy rapport with others who have the same goals as you can be incredibly inspiring. Whether it’s applying to your dream job, taking up a new sport or entering your work for an award, it’s time to back yourself. Prosperity awaits, if only you choose to claim it for yourself. Remember: competition does not have to mean conflict or greed.
Two of Pentacles. Try not to expect too much of the next few weeks, Pisces. You may find yourself being drawn to lots of different projects whilst having trouble focussing your energy on launching anything fully. Do not be surprised if your projects take a while to get on their feet. Growing pains and cold feet are all part of the process – just remember to keep moving. Top tip: avoid overthinking any changes out of perfectionism, especially if you are running your own business. If you find yourself paralysed with choice, go with your gut.
