Leo – The Hanged Man
Every hero sacrifices something to achieve something greater, and there could be choice to be made about what you’re letting go of as you may reach a crossroads this week. You may be ready to give up and let go of what is no longer of value to you and ready to choose what is significant and meaningful to you. You could be willing to give things up that no longer serve you for the future promise of attaining something of greater value. This sacrifice may increase your faith in life, by giving up something for the promise of attaining something greater will enable you to trust in something unseen and spiritual.
Giving up something to gain something else could be the theme this week, it could be a behaviour, a pattern, a mindset, a person. It’s usually a voluntary sacrifice for a greater good, with full acknowledgement that there could be some future suffering involved. This may seem daunting or a little negative but really, this card is transformational at it’s core, you have the energy this week to have tremendous foresight, enabling you to understand that some changes are needed to ensure the much-needed unfoldment of an inner plan or an outer desire.
What you choose is personal to you, but this is a turning point in your life where your focus is reoriented towards your inner world, psychological development and knowledge within is could become more important to you than what exists outside of you. If you are willing to surrender your ego and accept that there is something greater than your conscious mind, you will be able to let go and trust in the subconscious, therefore, allowing your wisdom within you to guide you. Trusting life and yourself will give you a sense of peace, surrender and let your intuition be your guide this week.
Virgo – The Lovers
You’re likely to be thinking about choosing in regards to a love relationship this week. If you’re single perhaps you’re considering a potential new relationship, if you’re coupled up, you may be mulling over what this connection means to you. Perhaps you will be making a personal sacrifice by coming to a compromise, but relationship matters are what you’re thinking about this week. You may be faced with a significant choice regarding a love. Questions could arise within you about why you chose to enter into this relationship, and you may have to choose between love and passion or security and stability. You could be in two minds about an emotional commitment, you may be feeling torn and unsure about what decision to take. Some careful consideration of what you stand to gain and lose could be required before you can make a final decision.
it’s a positive card as it implies that through meeting any challenges in any relationship, you will ultimately learn more about yourself. When you choose to be in a relationship with another, you are subconsciously agreeing to be more like this person, as your choices in love mirror back to you your values, because your choices mirror back to you the kind of person you wish to be. So the question this week you could ask yourself is who do you want to be? Your desires and choices in love are likely being questioned.
You could be asking yourself what you value about a love relationship, remember when we enter into a relationship we often don’t realise that the parts of ourselves that we deny or are unaware of are mirrored in our partners, when these parts of ourselves are mirrored back to us we have an opportunity to develop ourselves and become more whole. Being more self-aware helps us to make beneficial choices in love. Realising that your choices in love are reflecting your values, because of your favourite mirrors back to you the type of person you wish to become. Through meeting challenges in relationship with consideration and reflection, you will ultimately learn more about yourself.
Libra – The Hierophant
You may actively seek answers to philosophical questions this week, and through that enquiring within, you have the chance to get up and close with spirit in a profound way. There could be part of you that is seeking answers to spiritual questions too, by enquiring within you’ll likely find a deeper meaning to everything this week. Have you been pondering your existence and your place in life recently? What do you feel your vocation is? Has your vocation calling changed? You could enlist the help of a powerful healer, skilled counsellor, priest or spiritual guide, to help you traverse your inner landscape, by enquiring within you can find the answers that you seek whether you do this alone or with a guide you’re likely to have many insights this week.
You could be asking yourself some deep and meaningful questions about the grand scheme of life and the purpose of life and about why you’re here. It’s interesting to note that the ancient word for priest is ‘ponifex’ meaning the maker of bridges. You have opportunities this week to access your inner priest and walk across the bridge from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind where communication with your source happens.
You may decide to place yourself in environments that are quiet and perhaps close to nature so that you can hear this wisdom more clearly. There may even be a desire to change your personal philosophy or learn some ancient spiritual teaching, this week is tinged with spiritual vibes for you, and I’m hoping that you use this time to gain some deeper knowledge about yourself. Remember that by becoming more spiritually aware you will have greater peace of mind while enabling you to grow and progress further. You may formulate and begin to express your own personal philosophy.
Scorpio – The Wheel of Fortune
You could be more interested in subjects like the tarot and astrology this week as you’re likely questioning why certain things have happened and perhaps needing in some way to settle any feelings of anxiety you could be experiencing. Most often when we experience changes in life, it encourages us to look deeper into ourselves and life. You could be encountering the wheel of change this week, and life may be beginning to look and feel very different. What’s transforming for you? Are you feeling the changes around you? You could be completing one cycle and beginning another during this time.
One thing we can count on in life is change, and you are most likely embracing this season of change. Remember you are the architect of your fate and the universe is working with you on a subconscious level to manifest your desires. So, what are you focusing on? Be mindful that what you focus on with your imagination and emotions you quickly manifest and create. This card heralds a fresh start, you could be embarking on a new chapter in your book of your life, and it is up to you determine if this will be a positive or negative experience. You are probably getting more in touch with your capacity to make choices, and this will make you feel empowered. If you try to stay where you are there’s a chance you could stagnate and cease to grow as an individual. You are now able to gather positive momentum as you embrace change, you can let go of the past and move forward with grace. This week could see you probing behind the curtain of consciousness to find out more about the meaning of life.
Sagittarius – Three of Pentacles
Your efforts and hard work will likely be recognised this week. People around you will probably be vocal about their appreciation of you and your efforts. They will probably be noticing the quality of what you do as well as the amount of what you do, and you may even receive a gift or reward of some sort for all of your efforts. Try to keep doing what you’re doing as you are on the right path, you may want to do more but this week and you could even have reason to celebrate!

Capricorn – The Six of Swords
Take a lovely big deep breath, as difficulties are likely to be overcome this week and hopefully you’ll be moving away from stressful times. Your state of mind has probably been through a transformation recently and you’re likely to be feeling more peaceful inwardly. I’m hoping that any stresses and strains are now behind you, if they’re still lingering around for you, it could be Mercury retrograde still mixing things up but this card being drawn for you is usually a positive sign that things will improve.
Have you been thinking about taking a break or going on holiday? If you have this would be a great time to do it, a short break or change of scenery will be helpful. This doesn’t have to cost money as you can switch electronics off and create a little retreat at home if that’s what you wish.
Try to trust that the universe is taking you to where you want to be, and what’s been happening is leading you towards greater self-awareness, usually when this card comes up I know the person is looking for answers after a time of difficulty, so if you’re looking for answers and deeper understanding you’re likely to find it this week, read your astrology, maybe have a psychic reading done, there’s a pattern deeper than the eye can see and maybe you’ll gain some valuable insight if you look for it.
Aquarius – Page of Pentacles
You could have improved finances, a promotion or advancement this week. There could be small sums of money that become available to you, if there are, they need to be saved and nurtured instead of wasting it and treating it as insignificant. There may be a new beginning, and it needs to be taken seriously to bring something you wish for into fruition. A slow a steady but sure manifestation of deeply held idea or vision could start to sprout this week.
Perhaps you are being given an opportunity to start a career that holds great potential, or maybe a hobby that you could turn into a lucrative income. Whichever one it is, you have the chance to build up your energy and resources to create something tangible and real. You must nurture this process as it’s a new beginning it is much like the first flowers of spring as they are beginning to bud, they are delicate and could be easily crushed by negativity or self-doubt. So please try to be optimistic and expect the best outcomes.
You could have a love and thirst for learning this week and may be full to the brim with new ideas, you can expect future success of an innovative venture if you are willing to start at the bottom and work your way up, you’re probably ready to take on a task that involves hard work because you know it will pay off in the end. You have excellent prospects, but may have to be patient if you are to make a success out of this opportunity, hard work will bring results for you. This card and this week promise long-term rewards in your resources, finances and status as long as you remain open to good advice.
